How is their schedule too hard? Its no more difficult than it was last year. If anything its easier, because they don't have to face the AFC East, instead get the AFC North division. Mind you, going into last season their schedule included games against the 2 most recent superbowl champions to start off weeks 1 & 2, Atlanta and NYJ (playoff teams from 2002), oh and GB at Lambeau Field.
Even with all their injuries (Vincent, Taylor, and Dawkins all spent time injured, no less than 4 D-lineman were on IR at any given point, Westbrook, Mayberry, Emmons, Burgess just to name a few more starters that had to go on IR at some point. Oh, and McNabb starting the season with his thumb needing a splint on it), they went 12-4 last year. Despite not having a reliable WR. And the Eagles have only gotten better in the off-season. TO gives them a much needed WR threat (if only Reid will take pinkston off the field now for... anybody), Dhani Jones will be able to replace Emmons (and is 5 years younger), and Kearse only makes a healthy Eagles front 4 truly frightening for any QB. No, the Eagles will go bare minimum 11-5, if not much better. Only reason they would possibly not repeat 12-4 is if both the Skins and Cowboys became playoff contenders.
