Using the following hidden indicators of a much better year, the Birds rate for a big rebound in 3 of the 4 measures:
Football's Pythagorean Theorem - predicting a 2 win improvement
Record in Close Games - Eagles were -3 last year (2-5)
Team Turnover Margin - Eagles were -14 last year
Add it all up and based on my back of the envelop math I calculate the birds should win approximately 18 games in the regular season this year...
