Philadelphia Eagles: 5 Reasons Why They Can Still Win the NFC East

After an embarrassing 21-17 loss to the John Skelton-led Arizona Cardinals, the Philadelphia Eagles appear to be dead. Or are they?

The Eagles are very much on the outside looking in to the playoff race in only the 10th week of the season.

Key players are injured on both sides of the ball, coaches aren't putting players in position to make plays and the team has blown five fourth-quarter leads. Now DeSean Jackson is admitting that he is unhappy, and there is speculation that some players act more as individuals rather than as a team.

But after just nine games into the season, is this team really done?

Not quite, actually. They have the talent and the coaching to go on a run. We have seen less-talented Eagles teams finish strong even in the face of adversity.

Everyone's job is on the line outside of LeSean McCoy. Andy Reid needs to prove he still is the best man to lead the Eagles. Michael Vick needs to prove the same thing as well. DeSean Jackson needs to show the front office he is worth the money he is demanding in contract negotiations.

We all know the talent is there. The question right now: Is the will to win there? It's put-up-or-shut-up time Sunday night against the Giants.
