I realize that the eagles were 6-10, but the reality is they had a lot of injuries, a LOT, and thei injury situation/suckiness gave everyone in the divison 2 wins. IF you remember, only one of those was a blowout.
I could be wrong, but it also seems like the boys are old, while the other teams still have a nucleus of young talent. I think he sees the writing on the wall to be honest, as some of the total wins in the division will be redistributed with the eagles bouncing back.
How exactly are they old? Besides QB and WR, their main positions are led by youngsters. They'll likely be looking for a QB and WR this offseason, as well (Owens?).
Their defense will only improve, as Ware, Spears and Canty gain experience. In my opinion, they'll become a top defense for the next few years, if they aren't one already. This team was good enough to beat any team in the NFC playoffs this year. They beat the Giants and Panthers, and should've beaten Washington and Seattle. They are good enough to compete with anyone in the NFC right now IMO. With another year of experience for the youngsters, and more Parcells molding, this team will be in the playoff hunt for a while.
