What’s So Great About The 2010 Eagles?

Posted July 19, 2013

This team has been placed on some type of pedestal as if they were on verge of greatness and for the life of me I can’t see why. All that team showed is how quickly a quarterback (once he’s figured out) can age and decline. Let’s not forget that team lost in the first round of the playoffs AT HOME. Earlier that season Mike Vick stated had he starter the Packers game he would have beaten them. Well he got his chance in the playoffs and lost. That team signifies the beginning of the current mess of players writing checks with their mouths that their play on the field can’t cash.

 

Still for some odd reason Eagles fans view that team as if it were some form o greatness. True there were some good times. The Madden Football Videogame like performance by Vick verses the Redskins, and the improbable comeback verses the Giants. Still there were times that team left us completely confused at how good they really were like their clunkers verses the Bears and losing to the Vikings with Joe Webb at quarterback. All in all they were just an average team.

 

That’s precisely the reason why Andy Reid blew it up signing multiple free agents and completely changing his entire coaching staff. When the dust settled the Eagles revamped themselves and we all ASSumed they got better. In fact they got worse with a Defensive Coordinator learning of the job, and grumpy offensive and defensive line coaches who were talked out of retirement. The teams since 2010 have become far worse. The truth is the 2010 Eagles weren’t on the verge of something, but instead were the beginning of an end of something. It marked the beginning of the end of Andy Reid in Philly.
