The Eagles became the flavor of the month in late November and all of December 2021 for their gutty march to the playoffs through a bunch of terrible teams that left them with a 9-8 record, good enough to get wiped out by Tom Brady and the Bucs in the wild card round.
Now that clearer heads are prevailing, NFL media lemmings have anointed other flavors the Rams, who beat the Bengals in Sunday night’s Super Bowl.
2021 record: 9-8
Offseason in three or fewer words: In building mode
That’s the term general manager Howie Roseman used at his end-of-season news conference; a step forward from 2021, which was described by team brass as a transition year.
The Eagles have 10 picks in April’s draft, including three first-rounders, and over $20 million in cap room to play with.
