The Philadelphia Eagles went just 4-12 last year, but this is the kind of team that could be exceptionally good or hilariously bad once again. That's because the roster has a lot of talent, but there are two huge mysteries that must be solved.
Mystery No. 1: Can they get quality, consistent play at the quarterback position?
Michael Vick is so damn talented, but he's been a model of inconsistency the last two years, with the highest turnover rate in football. Can he get his career back on track? And if not, can Nick Foles, Matt Barkley or Dennis Dixon emerge? Nobody knows, but if one of those guys can find a way to shine, the Eagles could explode.
Mystery No. 2: Will the Chip Kelly experiment work?
Kelly could be another Steve Spurrier or Nick Saban, but there's also a chance the mad offensive genius is the next big thing in the NFL coaching world. His offense is expected to be extremely unique and fast-paced, and he certainly has the weapons to pull that off, with guys like Vick, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Bryce Brown on the roster.
If those studs can come through, if one of the quarterbacks can emerge, if Kelly can keep them together and if a very talented offensive line and potentially solid defense can deliver, the Eagles could turn this thing around, especially in the wide open NFC East.
2012 record: 4-12
Projected 2013 record: 8-8
