The 2010 season for the Philadelphia Eagles was supposed to be a rebuilding year. New quarterback, very young offense and very inexperienced defense. Six to eight wins was the projected win total for the Eagles. In came Michael Vick, and everything changed.
The Eagles failed to win a playoff game for the second straight season. They did however, nearly beat the eventual Super Bowl champs despite having absolutely no protection on the right side of the line, a glaring weak spot at right cornerback and no defense inside the 20.
With several new assistant coaches, an outstanding rookie at right guard and a new defensive coordinator the Eagles should be able to improve on what was a good, but not great 2010 campaign.
Andy Reid looks ready to finally lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl triumph. A very young and very talented core should put them in position to contend at a high level for the next three or four years at least.
2011 will be the year the Eagles take the next step as serious championship contenders.
