As many have noted by now, the Philadelphia Eagles have stockpiled talent this season through trades and free agency and are poised to be one of the league's better teams. But with great talent comes great expectations, and the Eagles still have a lot of question marks that need to be answered.
In the NFL, teams will find their opponent's weakness and exploit it to their maximum ability. The overall talent of this team may conceal some of their deficiencies, but if the Eagles want to legitimately strike fear into their opponents and be considered Super Bowl favorites, those aforementioned deficiencies need to be addressed.
Coming into this offseason, the Eagles had a myriad of problems but were still considered one of the top 10 teams in the league. For the most part, the Eagles addressed all of those problems but then came questions about cohesiveness and if the new acquisitions would have adequate time to familiarize themselves with their new system.
The preseason is the time to iron out the wrinkles and tinker with the roster. If the Eagles' management does a successful job at this and the team manages to stay relatively injury free, then the Eagles should be able to address all of the questions with their play on the field starting Sept. 8.
