There have been many reasons for the Eagles' 4-8 start this season. If I listed them all, I would be writing this article for two weeks.
Instead, I decided to focus on five main reasons the Eagles have struggled this season, and then try to break down why it was a problem and why the team has not been able to overcome it.
By doing that, there might be some way to figure out what direction they should go in the offseason. Overall, the Eagles have a lot of needs they will need to address via draft or free agency in 2012.
