Philadelphia Eagles’ 2017 record predictions roundup
Shortly after the NFL released its 2017 regular-season schedule Thursday night, the prognosticating began.
Fans and analysts alike rolled through schedules and rattled off game-by-game predictions for their favorite teams. Here, we compiled a few Eagles record predictions from various outlets, along with analysis.
Take a look:
“The real needle-mover, if you will, as far as the Eagles’ success is concerned is the development of Wentz. If he takes that next step forward, the Eagles definitely have the potential to improve in 2017. If he continues to struggle, well, things might not be so pretty.”
“Entering year two of the Carson Wentz and Doug Pederson era, expectations should rise significantly as the team uses its resources in the offseason to shore up holes and formulate a solid roster on both sides of the ball. Wentz underwent his inevitable rookie growing pains amid showing incredible potential, and the team has a better idea of what improvements are needed to get to the next level.”
“While technically a last-place schedule, quarterback Carson Wentz and head coach Doug Pederson will face their share of challenges in Year 2.”
“Spoiler alert: They will not be making the playoffs for the fourth straight season.”
