FanPulse update

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across the NFL powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Eagles fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

If you’ve been following along with Bleeding Green Nation’s FanPulse this season, you know we reveal how Eagles fans think the team is going to fare in that given week’s game. Now that the Eagles are halfway through the season, we have a graph showing fan expectations versus reality. Let’s take a look.

And here are the specific numbers:

Week 1: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 4, Eagles win by 6

Week 2: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 9, Eagles lose by 6

Week 3: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 9, Eagles win by 4

Week 4: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 9, Eagles lose by 3

Week 5: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 3, Eagles lose by 2

Week 6: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 5, Eagles win by 18

Week 7: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 7, Eagles lose by 4

Week 8: BGN FanPulse predicts Eagles win by 4, Eagles win by 6

BGN FanPulse season record: 4-4

As you can seen, the Eagles have mostly either met expectations or under-performed them. Philadelphia’s Week 6 blowout win over the New York Giants was the only game where the team did much better than expected.

We’ll continue to keep an eye on these numbers in the second half of the 2018 season. Hopefully we’ll see this team exceeding expectations instead of failing to meet them.
