After acquiring the best record in the National Football League, the Philadelphia Eagles will continue to trend upwards, and win the Super Bowl come Feb. 4 2018. The Eagles are the most complete team in the NFL, and they have the leagues' best quarterback.
The most underrated aspect of the Super Bowl bound Eagles is their coaching staff. Second year head coach Doug Pederson has been preparing his team perfectly, and he knows how to keep them hungry.
This offseason, Pederson’s goal was to create a family like atmosphere for the players, and he wanted to also create a sense of competition. He has been highly successful at both, as the Eagles have been soaring since pre season.
Pederson is not only the head coach of the Eagles, but he is their offensive play caller. His scheme and experience have helped his offense mightily. He served as a backup quarterback in the NFL before becoming a coach. This allows him to connect with his quarterback before every snap.
Carson Wentz is the quarterback of the Eagles, he is in his second year, and will win the Most Valuable Player come seasons end. Through the first nine weeks, Wentz leads the league in touchdown passes with 23 and has full control of Pederson’s offense.
In his rookie year, Wentz had little to no help on the offensive side of the ball. The Eagles general manager Howie Roseman, quickly saw that and brought the sophomore help.
Philadelphia brought in wide receivers Alshon Jefferey and Torrey Smith, two players who have payed instant dividends. The team also signed running back LeGarrette Blount, and just traded for Pro Bowl running back Jay Ajayi.
Both running backs are aggressive runners, who help their team dominate time of possession. All this success running the ball is thanks to the Eagles having one of the best offensive lines in the whole league.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Eagles have the best defensive coordinator in the NFL, Jim Schwartz. Philadelphia with out a doubt has the best defense in the NFL, their defensive line, line backers, and secondary have played light out all season long.
The Eagles defense have tallied 25 sacks, 11 interceptions, and seven forced fumbles. Philadelphia’s defense also allows less than 70-rushing yards per game, which is best in the league.
The most important parts of a successful football team is their offensive and defensive lines and the quarterback position, the Eagles ace all three categories.
Besides the Eagles having the best defense, quarterback, and terrific coaching, the most impressive part of this team has been their ability to win while missing key players. Philadelphia will only get stronger as the season goes on, they are Super Bowl bound.
