Pro Football Focus, everyone's favorite football performance grading platform, recently released grades from the 2007 NFL season. Prior to this addition the farthest their data went back was to the 2008 NFL season. In the interest of passing some time, let's take a look back at the 2007 Eagles.

Philadelphia was seemingly poised for a good season. They had just won the NFC East in 2006 and even beat the New York Giants in the wildcard round before suffering a close loss to the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round. Quarterback Donovan McNabb was returning from injury. The Eagles got off to a slow start, however, and finished the season 8-8. Back then that only earned them 4th place in the NFC East.

Here's a look at the Eagles 2007 roster with PFF grades included. All ranked players played at least 25% snaps. Players with less than 25% snaps have their snap count listed next to their name.
