What are the odds the Eagles will win SuperBowl 54

The 2018-19 season ended on a sour note as the Eagles made their bid to win back to back SuperBowls.  Typically it is a hard feat to do with the added pressure and being the main target for every team wanting to beat the Champs.  With Carson Wentz falling to injury for the second season in a row, good ole St. Nick stepped in to get the Eagles into the playoffs, beating the Rams in the process.  The Eagles fans thought another miracle was in the making with a double doink win over the Bears in the wildcard, but St. Nick fell short in a fourth quarter comeback against the Saints with a pass through the hands of Alshon Jeffrey that became a interception. It was an exciting ride for a bit and one pass/drive away from the NFC Championship game.

Well, with last season behind us and the New England Patriots winning another SuperBowl, the question arises on what chance the Eagles have to win SuperBowl 54.  If you want to check out the Eagles stats and figures for last year and upcoming news check out the Philadelphia Eagles page on NFL.com.

According to one source, the Eagles have the best Super Bowl 54 odds in the NFC East at +1800, narrowly ahead of Dallas (+2000). If they can bolster the backfield in free agency, they should be even shorter by Week 1. Philly was ranked 27th in rushing efficiency by Football Outsiders and 28th in rushing by Pro Football Focus last year, even though PFF graded the O-line as the 5th-best run-blocking unit. Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Corey Clement: all the RBs left meat on the bone, and the team never found a suitable replacement for Jay Ajayi. Le’Veon Bell would obviously come with huge off-field concerns, but putting his hyper-patient running style behind this offensive line would produce instant results. Lets see what the off-season brings.

Eagles and the SuperBowl

As we know here in Philly, the last time the Eagles won a championship was in 1960 and one of the only major franchises to not win a superbowl.  The philly fans are clamoring for a superbowl so bad that when that day finally comes I fear for the city during the celebration and parade.  So as we look to next season with the Eagles with Sam Bradford at the helm or will it be rookie Carson Wentz, it doesn’t look the Eagles are posed to bring home a SuperBowl win for the city.  Certainly things will be interesting as there currently is no clear No. 1 QB and neither have 1oo percent secured the starting position this early in the year.  There was an interesting article on NFL.com dicussing the situation.

Now that it is post draft who are the favorites and where do the Eagles stand in the mix.  Well, so far the odds on favorites are 3 of the teams who didn’t make it to SuperBowl 50: Pittsburgh, New England, and Seattle.  The trio are all scoring high odds so far to win SuperBowl 51 on February 5th, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

The other teams who are in the hunt next year are Green Bay, Arizona, Carolina, Cincinatti and SuperBowl Champions from 2016, the Denver Broncos.  Peyton Manning should be an interesting story to watch as he did not announce his retirement yet but most feel that SuperBowl 50 will be his last game.

How do the Eagles fair in the rankings to win the SuperBowl?  Well, as us Philly fans always like to believe this will be the year, most have succumbed to reality and figure we don’t have a chance.  It is possible that in the weak NFC East division that the Eagles have an outside chance of winning the division and making the playoffs, but they would have to overcome their higher ranked rivals, Dallas, the Giants, and Washington.  So where are the Eagles ranked so far?  The answer is 23rd, not the worst, but holding a 50-1 odds chance of winning the big one.  Don’t feel so bad though, Chip Kelly and the San Francisco 49ers are at the bottom of the list if you are wondering.

If you would like the take a look at who the Eagles drafted, there was a great article put out Grading the 2016 draft on TalkSportsPhilly earlier in the year.  Keep your heads up Philly fans as there will be a lot to talk about this year no matter what happens.
