Official: Eagles 2015-16 NFL Schedule

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.

NFL Schedule to be released tomorrow night

April 21st, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on NFL Schedule to be released tomorrow night | Filed in Eagles, NFL, TalkSportsPhilly

It was announced earlier today that the 2015-16 NFL schedule will be released tomorrow night at 8 PM ET.

The opponents that the Eagles will face are already known:

Home: Arizona Cardinals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints, Washington Redskins, New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys

Away: Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers, Washington Redskins, New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys

The obvious for tomorrow night is to determine when those games will be played. Last year the Eagles had a very tough second half of the season playing Arizona, Green Bay, Dallas (twice), and Seattle all after the bye, including finishing out the season with two consecutive road games, so it will be interesting to see what hand the NFL deals the Eagles this season.
