How many people are saying that the Eagles are the best team in the NFC?
You can argue that the Eagles had the best draft of the NFL and are favorites of winning the Superbowl.
I really don't like to put the Eagles in high expectation, but as an Eagles fan, you have to like the chances.
The Philadelphia Eagles acquired many talented players that will eventually make this team better. They started the off-season by signing Stacy Andrews, Sean Jones, Rashad Baker, and Leonard Weaver.
Weeks before the Draft, the Eagles filled their left tackle position by trading one of their first round picks for pro bowler Jason Peters.
The Eagles arguably had the best draft by picking up offense talents like wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, running back LeSean McCoy, and tight end Cornelius Ingram. We also can't forget about the acquisition of Ellis Hobbs.
We have a solid offense, lead by Donovan McNabb. A solid defense with depth a cornerback, and a solid special teams group with many possible returners.
We all know that the Eagles are a good on paper, but can they execute on the field? Can players reach the expectation level and can everyone stay healthy?
I can't read the future, but If we play like all of us expect, then we have a good chance of winning the Superbowl. We might represent the NFC, but who will represent the AFC?
The New England Patriots.
In the 2008-2009 season the Patriots won a total of 11 games and did not make the playoffs. Lets keep in mind that they were without former MVP Tom Brady. New England Patriots' fans will be happy to see him under center once again.
The Patriots have made many off-season moves which have brought in players on both sides of the ball.
On offense they added running back Fred Taylor, Tight end Chris Baker and Alex Smith, wide receivers Greg Lewis and Joey Galloway
The combination of Tom Brady and Fred Taylor sounds good. Taylor still has a lot in his tank and will cause defenses to focus on him and Brady.
On Defense they added Shawn Springs and Leigh Bodden to help at the corner position.
The defense is a question mark, but Bill Belichick is one of the smartest coaches in the league and will find a way to win with the players he has on the rosters.
Just like the Eagles, the Patriots are contenders every year. The Patriots will challenge the Steelers in representing the AFC.
A Super Bowl 39 rematch would be something every Eagles' fans dream of. The Patriots took our chance of becoming World champions and Tom Brady has a big chip on his shoulder since the league and media expect so much from him.
McNabb vs Brady part two. It could be a good headline.
We have a talented group to march to Florida and win the Superbowl. But like I said before, we look good on paper, but can we execute?
