IT’S SCHEDULE DAY, BABY! The first of 48 consecutive days where, knowing nothing about which teams will surprise by overachieving, which will bust, which will be dealing with injuries, or what the weather will be anywhere in the country and London six months from now, we can definitively predict the Eagles’ record, game-by-game. GIVE ME ALL OF YOUR VAPID TAKES:
SOMETIMES the NFL schedule is set to where it becomes just as important when you play certain opponents as to who they are.
The Eagles had better get most of the kinks resolved in training camp and preseason games.
Let’s just say the Birds need to have most things worked out before their 2017 season kicks off. Unlike a year ago, the NFL, which released the full league schedule Thursday night, did the Eagles no favors; they open the season at Washington on Sept. 10, then travel to Kansas City for what shapes up to be an emotional meeting between head coach Doug Pederson and his mentor, former longtime Eagles coach Andy Reid.
Wow. That’a deep. The Eagles would indeed be best to get out all their mistakes during the preseason, unlike other years, where they just saved them for the entire back half of the schedule. 0-16.
