The extreme amount of hype that came into the Philadelphia Eagles 2011 season has long faded and been replace with doubt for just about every single player, coach and front office executive.
Michael Vick has gone from MVP to turnover machine, DeSean Jackson has given the Eagles little reason to sign him to a superstar like deal and every safety and linebacker has looked replaceable this season.
Last week's 26-10 road victory over the Dolphins proved otherwise however. Several players who could either be demoted, replaced or let go next season stepped up in a big way last Sunday in Miami. The final three weeks will be an ever bigger test several Eagles who need to step up to save their jobs.
This week the Eagles welcome the New York Jets into town as they are fighting for the last wildcard spot in the AFC. They follow that up with two straight divisional games against the Cowboys and Redskins.
If the Eagles play well through the final three games it will give fans plenty to look forward to in 2012. If these five players play well, it could very well save their starting jobs for next season.
