Below is a poll with different picks on the Eagles season, what do you think their record will be??

2014 Eagles: A Team Of Destiny?

The Nick Foles era is well underway, and it was made crystal clear during a week 6 thrashing of the Oakland Raiders, in which Foles threw for 406 yards and a historic 7 TDs.  Perhaps last season’s 29 TDs – 2 INTs ratio was a fluke, or perhaps it was the start of something great. Either way, Nick knows that it won’t be easy to match those numbers, but he won’t roll over and take a step back either.  Foles was quoted in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer as saying: “Our team isn’t measured by my 27-2.”

“Can I be a good-enough leader to where I can make these guys better players around me to where it makes the team better and we win? Now, I might not ever reach those [statistics] again. … I hope I do.  I want to get better and I want to be a better player. But if you’re just looking primarily at statistics, you might not ever.  ” It’s clear that Foles isn’t expecting to put up numbers similar to the year prior, however Foles seems more than ready to take the reigns of this team.

With that said, the Eagles are in a better position to succeed this year, than last year. Even if Foles doesn’t put up the same numbers (which is highly unlikely), this team is loaded with talent.  Players like LeSean McCoy to Brandon Boykin to Jordan Matthews to the newly-signed Malcom Jenkins, this teams is stacked.  The offseason acquisitions of scat-back Darren Sproles and monstrous wideout Jordan Matthews more than made up for the loss of all-pro wideout DeSean Jackson on offense.

While, the acquisition of lockdown safety Malcom Jenkins has shored up the defensive secondary, it still remains the primary weakness of this team. The defense as a whole is a solid unit, but the lack of secondary talent and depth has proved to be a problem and could do so once again. Cary Williams, Brandon Boykin, and Malcom Jenkins are the secondary leaders, but can’t carry the load themselves.  The acquisition of Nolan Carroll could prove beneficial to a weak secondary, and may push a playoff team into a championship contender.

The Eagles posted a 10-6 record last year with a rookie coach, a rookie QB, Bryce Brown, Nate Allen, and DeSean Jackson on the squad. Was that a fluke or destiny? To me, it seemed like destiny.  Everything broke the Eagles way last season. We avoided Aaron Rodgers, we ran into a puddle of clay defense in Chicago, and perhaps most importantly….Brandon Boykin came up HUGE with that interception that sealed the division against Dallas.  If that’s not destiny, I don’t know what is…
