THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
At 1:00 PM ET today, we will be exactly ONE. WEEK. AWAY. from the start of the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles regular season schedule.
It’s almost here. Free agency, the NFL Draft, training camp, preseason games, roster cuts ... that’s mostly all behind the Eagles now. It’s time for them to prepare for their Week 1 opponent: the Washington Redskins.
I can’t think of a better way to start the season than with a team the Eagles haven’t been able to beat since 2014. As I’ve said all offseason long, this is a game the team has circled on their calendar. The players know Washington has gotten the best of them for too long now. It’s time to right that wrong.
I’m looking forward to this Eagles season. The team appears to be improved after going 7-9 each of the last two seasons. It feels like they should be closer to pushing for a playoff spot this year. Carson Wentz’s development will obviously be a critical factor in that regard. It’ll be real interesting to see the progress he makes this year. Same thing goes for head coach Doug Pederson.
Football is almost back. Just one more week to go.
