284 football games have been played. One more remains on the schedule, and once Super Bowl LVI reaches its conclusion, all 32 NFL teams will be staring at their offseason. For the Philadelphia Eagles, that offseason came later than some thought it would. A team many expected to win five games or fewer made the postseason. Here’s the thing though. That wasn’t a surprise for these Eagles. They expected to be better than people thought. They expected to win and do so often. They expected to win more than nine games, reach the postseason, and travel further than the Wild Card Round. They were that confident. In the end, the 2021-2022 NFL season for this proud franchise was full of ups and downs but turned out to be better than we thought it would. Now, it’s time to get better.
