Since it’s the offseason, and we’re still weeks away from the team getting back for training camp, we want to hear more from the great readers of BGN. We’ll be posting regular questions about the team and it’s outlook, until the players are back on the field, and we want to hear from you in the comments!


I am of the belief that the Eagles currently have one of their most talented rosters in years — including the 2017 Super Bowl-winning season. That being said, there are still a lot of question marks surrounding players’ health and longevity, and a lot of potentially great rookie talent without any in-game proof.

So while it’s could be said every year that anything short of a Super Bowl appearance, if not a win, would be a disappointment — and that’s obviously the team’s outlook as well — realistically, I would consider next season successful if the Eagles win one playoff game with Carson Wentz at the helm.

After signing the QB to a mega-extension, the team (and fans) need to see that Carson Wentz can make it through a whole season healthy, and getting at least one playoff win will give the young quarterback experience and a boost of confidence. Sure, he got the team to the playoffs in 2017, but likely has a lot of “what if” questions had he been healthy enough to compete in that Super Bowl run. Proving to himself and the Eagles organization that not only can he stay healthy enough to compete in the postseason, but can also rise to the occasion and win, will go a long way in setting up many Super Bowl runs in the team’s near-future.


What would you consider a successful 2019 season?
