5 Positives the Philadelphia Eagles Can Take into the Offseason

After Week 13, the Philadelphia Eagles appeared to be on the verge of being blown up this offseason. Michael Vick couldn't read the defense or protect the football, DeSean Jackson was rumored to be quitting on the team and no one on defense could tackle anyone.

The Eagles were 4-8 and nobody's job was safe outside of Jason Peters and LeSean McCoy. Philly fans were chanting "Fire Andy" at every home game, as it appeared that it was just a matter time before Andy Reid and the entire coaching staff would get the axe.

How quickly things can change in the NFL.

Heading into Week 17, the Eagles are riding a three-game winning streak. The defense has been outstanding, as has been the coverage at all positions, and the tackling has been superb. The offense has been on fire as well, putting up 91 points in the last three weeks.

Now the Eagles will head into the offseason with a different outlook. Coaches and players alike have potentially saved their jobs. If only the Eagles had figured everything out a week or two sooner, we would be talking about the Eagles being the dark horse in the NFC instead of discussing their outlook into the 2012 offseason.
