The Eagles schedule is out and it’s not a killer schedule. I think the Eagles will be able to go 11-5. Only five of the teams they play had winning records a year ago. They battle the NFC West which is arguably the worst division in football.
They should be able to make the playoffs with this weak schedule as long as they’re able to beat the teams which they should beat. Andy Reid has been able to get his team ready to play against bad football teams during his tenure as the Eagles head coach. If he can do that this year, the Birds should be headed to the playoffs.
Once they get to the playoffs, then there’s no telling what will happen.
Their explosive offense should be able to jump on these bad teams and carry them through games against these lousy teams.
I see the Eagles being at least 11-5 in 2011, but what about you. What do you think the Eagles record will be in 2011?
