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 Commanders (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.
After starting the 2020 season with two losses and a tie, the Philadelphia Eagles won their first game of the year in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49’ers. The Eagles split their next four game to enter their Week 8 bye with a 3-4-1 record, which somehow put them on top of the NFC East standings.
Things went from bad to worse for Philadelphia following the bye as the Eagles won just one of their final eight games of the season. By Week 12 it would be impossible for Philadelphia to improve on their previous seasons 9-7 record and by Week 16 it was mathematically impossible for the Eagles to win their division and make the playoffs.
After Carson Wentz was benched in favor for Jalen Hurts in Week 13, Hurts made his first NFL start the following week (Week 14) and led the Eagles to a victory over the heavily favored Saints, snapping New Orleans’ 9-game winning streak and securing the Eagles first and only win after the bye.
Philadelphia finished the season with a 4-11-1 record, their worst since 2012. At the conclusion of the season the Eagles announced that they had fired Doug Pederson as their head coach. Not long after, the Indianapolis Colts agreed to a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles that sent Carson Wentz to the Colts in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 conditional second-round pick.
Nick Sirianni was hired to become the head coach of the Eagles early in the 2021 offseason. Making way for a new coach and a new quarterback to take reigns in Philadelphia for the 2021 season.
Jalen Hurts showed flashes throughout the season but the Philadelphia Eagles were never quite able to put it together. They are still a few key pieces away from becoming a serious contender once again.
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 2022-23 season. Do the Philadelphia Eagles have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?
Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Philadelphia Eagles:
Nick Sirianni returns as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for his second season. After a rocky start last season, he righted the ship and led the Eagles to the playoffs although they were defeated in the first round.
He has a career overall record of 9-9 and he will be looking to build on the Eagles playoff appearance in his rookie year as a head coach in the National Football League. Before coming to Philadelphia he was the offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts. He has also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers
The Philadelphia Eagles offense will be led by quarterback Jalen Hurts as he’s coming into his third season in the National Football League. Heading into his second full season, he will be looking to take the next step and turn into one of the top quarterbacks in the league.
Their big acquisition over the off-season is former Tennessee Titans wide receiver AJ Brown and they will be pairing him alongside Devonta Smith and Jalen Reagor at the wide receiver spot. Dallas Goedert returns as the tight end and their offensive line will look to once again be one of the best in football.
The Philadelphia Eagles defense has the potential to be one of the top units in the National Football League this season if they can all remain healthy. Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox will hold down the left side of the line while Javon Hargrave and Josh Sweat will hold it down on the right side.
Kyzir White, TJ Edwards, and Hassan Reddit will likely be the number one linebackers for this team. While James Bradberry and Darius Slay make up one of the top corner combos in the league. Marcus Epps and Anthony Harris will play the full safety and the strong safety position.
Last season the Philadelphia Eagles finished with a record of 9-8 and they are expected to finish around the same as they did during the 2021-22 season. Oddsmakers expect the Philadelphia Eagles to win around nine to ten of their seventeen games during the 2022-23 National Football League season. The odds for betting the over on the win line are currently (-130), while the odds for the betting the under on the win line are currently (+110) heading into the 2022-23 season.
Their odds to win their division are currently (+165), while their odds to bring home a Conference Championship are (+1100) at the moment. Their current odds to win the Super Bowl and bring home the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season are listed at (+2500) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season. This puts them as one of the middle of the pack teams in terms of odds to bring home the title this season.
They are currently the favorites in eleven of their seventeen games this season. As usual they are expected to win more games on their home field instead of having more wins on the road. They come into the 2022-23 National Football League season expected to be two possession favorites in zero of their seventeen games and two possession underdogs in zero of their seventeen games this season.
It’ll be interesting to see how this team performs after all the changes during the offseason and while playing in such a top heavy conference like the NFC. Due to the massive amount of parity in the National Football League, you never truly know what is going to happen from season to season. But all signs point towards the Philadelphia Eagles being in the middle of the spectrum during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
