It all started when Bert Bell and Lud Wray brought the then Frankford Yellowjackets back in 1933 that kick started the birth of the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles then hired what would be an Eagles legend and who would be in the Eagles folklore when favourite son Greasy Neale took charge of the side in 1941. He would have a coaching career that would span a decade at the Eagles, including coaching the merged Pittsburgh-Philadelphia team in 1943.
In 1943 the Eagles joined forces with the Pittsburgh Steelers to create one super team throughout the 1943 season due to the shortage of players during WWII. At the time they were called Phil-Pitt or the Stranglers and the merger only lasted one season.
It wasn’t until the late 1940s and early 50s that the Eagles became a real force in the NFL. Greasy led the team to a back-to-back NFL championships which consisted of future Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren, Alex Wojciechowcz, Pete Pihos and Chuck Bednarik when they claimed the 1948 and 1949 championships (pre Super Bowl) a year later proved to be Greasy Neale’s last season in charge of the Eagles.
The Eagles would then have to endure 10 years of pain before they saw the side lift the NFL championship in 1960 to kick off the new decade in style with a win over the Green Bay Packers after going 10-2 throughout the regular season.
However, as it turned out the 60s brought more pain then joy as they had four coaches in 10 years with Buck Shaw coaching the Eagles from 1958-1960(1960 was his last season), Nick Skorich (1961-1963), Joe Kuharich (1964-1968) and Jerry Williams (1968-1971) all had stints but couldn’t reach the highs that started the decade. The 1963 and 1968 season’s were particularly hard for the Eagles fans as they only managed two wins in those two seasons.
Throughout the 70s there ups and downs as they made it to the playoffs nearing the end of the decade when they managed to get to the wildcard round in 1978 and a year later they made it one game further in 1979 where they reached the Divisional round after finishing on top of the NFC East division with an 11-5 record.
That was the only optimism the team had as from 1970-1977 they did not reach the playoffs as the most wins the Eagles had throughout the time was seven wins which occurred in 1974.
The 70s also produced one of their worst seasons as they managed to win less than five games in four seasons winning three games in 1970, two games in 1972, and winning four games in 1975 and 1976.
The 80s started with a bang as the Eagles led by head coach Dick Vermeil handed them a dream start when they ended a 20 year wait as the Eagles won their division with a 12-4 record.
After claiming top sport in the NFC East division, the Eagles played the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional playoff game and came victorious defeating them 31-16, they claimed the championship game when they defeated the Dallas Cowboys by 13 points and earned their first Super Bowl appearance when they met the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XV.
Unfortunately being on the NFL’s biggest stage was all too much for the Eagles as they went by 13 points. They made the playoffs the next year but the Super Bowl hangover was all too real when they got kicked out of the wildcard round by the New York Giants. The Eagles ended the decade with back-to-back playoff appearances but crashed out in the divisional round in 1988 and the wildcard in 1989.
The 90s could be seen as a mild success as they appeared in the postseason four times in 1990 (wildcard round), 1992 (divisional round), 1995 (divisional round) and 1996 where they made the wildcard playoffs again, as they couldn’t quite go the next step.
By the turn of the new millennium the Eagles were postseason regulars, but the Eagles from 2000-2010 could be summed up by being so close yet so far. From 2001-2003 the Eagles appeared in three conference championship games and lost everyone and a year later in 2004 they made the Super Bowl for their second time but fell to the New England Patriots.
The 2010s were not so kind to the Eagles as by the turn of the new decade they made the playoffs just twice losing in the wildcards in 2010 and 2013, however, things started to change.
Despite not making the playoffs in four years, the Eagles finally broke that mini draught in 2017 under Doug Pederson’s second year in charge, and it was one to remember.
The Eagles began their 2017 campaign with a bang defeating the Washington Football Team (formerly known as the Washington Redskins) but lost their next game to Kansas City Chiefs, but then started to get a good run of results winning their next nine matches. The Eagles would then finish the regular season on top of the NFC East division with a 13-3 record, as they made the playoffs for the first time in four years.
By the time the playoffs started, it was a sign of the new Eagles as they defeated Atlanta Falcons in the divisional round and then finally broke their NFC Championship hoodoo when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings to head to the Super Bowl for the first time in 13 years.
Unlike previously when the Eagles were on the NFL’s biggest show where they got stage fright Super Bowl LII was different as they seemed to learn from their mistakes as they finally lifted up that elusive Vince Lombardy trophy for the first time when they defeated the New England Patriots in 41-33, as quarterback Nick Foles became the MVP.
The next two years the Eagles continued their dominance as they made the divisional round in the playoffs in 2018 and the wildcard playoffs despite finishing on top in the NFC East in 2019.
If you are a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Philadelphia Eagles have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Philadelphia Eagles:
After a 13-year playing career at a variety of franchises, Doug Pederson began his career as an NFL coach with the Philadelphia Eagles as an assistant under Andy Reid. Pederson then followed Reid to Kansas City becoming the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs, before returning to Philadelphia in 2016 to become the head coach of the Eagles.
After a 7-9 season in his first year, Pederson has since made the playoffs in three consecutive years, most notably 2017’s 13-3 season, which was capped off with a Super Bowl Championship. The Eagles had a bumpy 2019 season, that was riddled with injuries, and still managed to make the playoffs for a third consecutive season. With a career record of 42-28, Pederson will be looking to increase his playoff streak to four in a row, and with the Giants, Washington Football Team and arch rival Cowboys in their division, they are certainly a good chance.
Taken with the 53rd pick in the 2019 NFL draft, Miles Sanders was one of the best surprises to come out of his draft class. By the midpoint of his rookie season, Sanders had established himself as an important player in the Eagles offense, finishing the year with 818 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns to go along with 50 receptions for 509 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns.
Sanders set franchise records for the most rushing, scrimmage and all-purpose yards by a rookie in Eagles franchise history. Having proven his draft night doubters wrong in 2019, Miles will be looking to establish himself as one of the top running backs in the league in 2020 as the Eagles number one man in the backfield.
After trading a third-round and fifth-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Detroit Lions to acquire his services, Darius Slay became a Philadelphia Eagle. Having been at the Detroit Lions since 2013, Slay has played 103 career games for 347 combined tackles, 101 pass deflections and 19 interceptions. Slay’s best season with the Lions was 2017 where he led the league in interceptions (8) and pass deflections (26) to earn All Pro First Team honours.
Slay’s addition to the Eagles defence will allow guys players such as Sidney Jones, Avonte Maddox, and Rasul Douglas to match up against opposition second and third string receivers. If Slay can return to his 2017-2018 form, the Eagles will be a much more formidable defence, well led by their newest recruit.
Despite making the playoffs last year, it could be noted that the Eagles 2019 season was a bag of mixed results even if they finished first in the NFC East division with a 9-8 record. The Eagles began the season with a +900 value to make Super Bowl LIV, and it seemed to be heading in the right direction when they defeated Washington in gameweek one, but even with that win their value rose up to +1100.
Their next two games proved troublesome for their aspirations as heading into their gameweek two clash with the Atlanta Falcons the Eagles were valued at +1533 and by the end of gameweek three they were +2333, as they dropped back-to-back games against the Falcons and the Detroit Lions.
The Eagles bounced back winning their next two games against Green Bay Packers and New York Jets and by October 8 they managed to get their value down to +1267.
But once again they dropped games against Minnesota Vikings and Dallas which meant their value quickly rose up again this time to +3367 on October 23, but they managed to bounce back with two wins before their bye as they entered their break with +2000 odds.
The Eagles resumed after the bye week with +2500 when they faced the New England Patriots on November 18, and it was the start of a three match losing streak as by December 3 they were marked +5667.
The Eagles value decreased on the day of their clash with the New York Giants where they were valued at +4667 on December 10, and luckily for the Eagles it was the start of a four game winning streak to earn them their third postseason appearance in a row.
The Eagles entered the postseason with +3833 odds on January 3, however, the Eagles season ended three days later when they fell to Seattle in the wildcard playoff.
In 2020 it hasn’t been the start that the Eagles wanted nor their fans as they have won only one game which came in game week four defeating the San Francisco 49ers, their next best result is a tie against the Cincinnati Bengals and have lost three games to the Washington Football Team, Los Angeles Rams and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Despite their recent results they are second favourites to clinch the NFC East with +120 value.
