2020

2020 Record: 4-11-1

2021

2020 was a rough year for everyone, but the Eagles may have had the worst year of any team in the NFL. Carson Wentz was terrible. The O line was dreadful. By the end of the year Philly’s entire receiving corps was all but filled with practice szuad players. Doug Pederson suddenly forgot how to coach an NFL team. The D was laughably bad. And I’m out of adjectives… this was the worst team in possibly the worst division in NFL history.

2021 Draft Picks

1-12 WR DeVonta Adams, Alabama

2-37 G Landon Dickerson, Alabama

3-73 DT Milton Williams, Louisiana Tech

4-123 DB Zech McPhearson, Texas Tech

5-150 RB Kenneth Gainwell, Memphis

6-189 DT Marlon Tuipulotu, USC

6-191 DE Tarron Jackson, Coastal Carolina

6-224  LB JaCoby Stevens, LSU

7-234 LB Patrick Johnson, Tulane

After a dismal 2020 that saw the franchise crumble the Eagles needed a great draft, and they got it. Davonte Adams should make an immediate impact. Landon Dickerson could be a mainstay on the O-line for years, and Kenneth Gainwell might be one of the best kept secrets on the draft board. The rest was spent on defensive players, several of which cold see significant time in 2021.

Key Losses

Carson Wentz – QB (to Colts)

DeSean Jackson – WR (to Rams)

Alshon Jeffery – WR (FA)

Jalen Mills – S (to Patriots)

All four of these were classic examples of addition via subtraction.

Key Pick Ups

Kerryon Johnson – RB (from Lions)

Joe Flacco – QB (from Jets)

Johnson is a solid backup, and Flacco, at 78 years of age, was brought in to mentor Hurts.

Offense

Offensive Coordinator: 

2020 Points Scored: 

The Eagles are all in on Jalen Hurts. And based on his performance after assuming the starting role late in 2020, that doesn’t seem like a bad idea; he showed flashes of brilliance before Doug Pederson inexplicably benched him in week 17. Jalen Reagor struggled with injuries and bad QB play,, but he’s healthy now, and while the trio of he, rookie DaVonte Adams, and Hurts will no doubt have some growing pains in 2021, they make a solid foundation to build around for years to come. The running game is going to be by committee, and no one stands out. Whether the line improves will determine how hard the growing pains are.

Advertisements

Defense

Defensive Coordinator: 

2020 Points Allowed: 

The rebuilding project is happening on this side of the ball, as well. Injuries devastted the team in 2020, but most of the key parts are healthy. As with the offense, this is the beginning of a youth movement. As such, this unit will probably struggle early, but will improve over the course of the year.

Advertisements

Special Teams

Like everything else for the Eagles in 2020, special teams was a mess. New… and unproven… special teams coach Michael Clay has his work cut out for him. K Jake Elliot returns, and is solid, if not spectacular. Everything else… including the punter position… is up in the air heading into 2021.

Advertisements

If Things Go Well

If the skill players stay healthy, and the line improves, Jalen Hurts will have his moments. There’s just too much youth in play here to predict much, but every year there’s a team or two that surprises everyone. There’s enough talent here that Philly could, if everything goes well, could slip into that spot. Ditto on the defensive side and with special teams.

Advertisements

If They Don’t

Like every rebuilding project, 2021 has the potential to get ugly for the eagles. Youth and talent don’t always lead to instant success. If the D can’t stop anyone, and more importantly if the line can’t protect Hurts, it could be a long year.

Advertisements

Prediction

The growing pains won’t be fun to watch, but the Eagles are a team with a bright future. Unfortunately, it’s not likely that future will get here this year.
