Agree with all of this, especially the last sentiment - this season is going to set the tone for the next several years of Eagles football. It's going to take a season for these guys to get in sync with each other, and 9-7 in contention sounds right to me. This may be cautious optimism, but given that the last several Eagles seasons have ended in a crotchpunch, I honestly am not terrified of a season of rebuilding and mediocrity if it pays dividends in the not-too-distant future.

Three interceptions versus Washington? Yes please.
