Official: Eagles 2015-16 NFL Schedule

April 22nd, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Filed under Eagles, Football, NFL.

There is no denying that this offseason by the Eagles has been an offseason for the ages. It all started way back in December with a feud in the Eagles front office that looked like it would have to be settled in a triple-threat cage match between Chip Kelly, Howie Roseman, and Tom Gamble with Jeffery Lurie as special guest referee. That feud ended on January 3rd with Jeffery Lurie raising Chip Kelly’s hand in the center of the ring and handing him the keys to the Eagles front office by giving him full control of player personnel.

After that happened the transactions began to come at us in a hurry.

I would love to get into every transaction, but by now we all know the results. Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, Todd Herremans, Trent Cole, Jeremy Maclin, Bradley Fletcher, and Cary Williams, who were all starters last season, are now gone.

Meanwhile, Kiko Alonso, DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews, Byron Maxwell, Walter Thurmond III, Sam Bradford, Miles Austin, and yes Tim Tebow are some of the notable names who have been brought in to replace the players above.

The offsesaon still has one more big event before we can all but wrap up most big-time transactions, and that is the NFL Draft which takes place next Thursday-Saturday. Obviously the draft could be a humongous deal for the Eagles because of a certain quarterback who the team has been rumored to acquire in every way possible. Regardless it is a big deal because of the holes that need to be filled on the team, and this is another deep draft class where the Eagles can get some really talented young players.

With all that being said, everything that happened and will happen means nothing until we see how it portrays on the field on Sundays starting in September and hopefully ending in late January or early February. The Eagles opponents are already known, however, the weeks when they play those teams are now known as well.

So without further ado, I give you the 2015-16 Philadelphia Eagles schedule:

Now please excuse me while I try to cool off from all this emotion and excitement for September 14th in Atlanta, and I might just have to follow in Chip Kelly’s footsteps with a routine that worked well for him last year:
