The longer it goes, the weaker the Eagles get.

Sure all teams are going to be less prepared than normal for this season, should one even occur, due to lack of practice. But consider the Eagles. They are not the average team this year.  The Eagles have a largely new coaching staff that will have little time to learn about their players and vice versa. The new DC will undoubteldy be changing the playbook. The OL will also change in substance and style.

The Eagles have a very young team that would benefit more than older veteran teams from OTAs in the off season. And while the FO has done a very good job in the draft meeting many of their needs, they are still relying on FA to make them a whole team. The FA's that the Eagles will bring in will also be new to the Eagles and  to a largely new coaching staff.  The will also be surrounded by very young players. For these reasons I feel that older, experienced  teams where the coaches and schemes have not changed will have a serious advantage over the Eagles this season.

Lurie has shown that he has no favorites when he wants to win. Not Dawk, not McNabb, Not Runyan or Thomas. He has given Andy free reign to reorganize this year and I wonder; if this year turns out to be less than at least a NFC Championship run, will Andy get a pass because of the strike or a pink slip?
