    With new changes in the Ownership comes new changes in team direction. The Eagles were sold to entrepreneur David Coleman. No one has any idea where he got this much money from but as the saying goes money talks.

    You can already see his hands on philosophy as he has begun to mold the team. No qb from last years team remains on the roster other then Mark Sanchez who could be let go any day.

    Looking over the roster he noticed a need for another potential breakout WR feeling as Agholor is best suited as a slot WR. So he made a deal to send a Philly fan favorite in Conner Barwin to Jacksonville to aquire young 6'3 WR Allen Hurns

    This trade accomplished 2 things. One it took Barwins salary off the payroll. Barwin was set to make over 5.5m this coming season with that number only to go over the next 2 seasons. The Eagles making a change to a 4-3 defense didn't really have a starting role left to utilize Barwins talents.
    Secondly it gives the Eagles another good young WR to pair with Matthews and Agholor that could be the trio for the next 6-8 years. Hurns is know for having good hands and his ability to make catches along the sideline.

    The above Hurns trade fails to compare to what happened next. The Eagles went into this offseason knowing what holes they needed to fill. One of their top priorities was safety after releasing Walter Thurmond III after the season. They really wanted to playmaker to accompany Malcom Jenkins in the secondary and boy did they find him.

    Kam "Lay the Wood" Chancellor. In a trade that some have question the Eagles sent their 1st round pick to Seattle along with a 5th round pick. The Eagles did manage to snag a 2nd round pick back in the process.

    But Chancellor will join a defensive squad already full of playmakers. His ability to make plays from the safety position is unrivaled by many in the NFL. He is a perfect compliment to Jenkins who has the ability to play a similar role to Earl Thomas.

    This does however leave the Eagles without a 1st round pick for this draft. The Eagles still need a qb but felt this QB class was very underwhelming.
    They still enter with a late 2nd and two early 3rds. Still needing to fill some holes on O-line and CB, the Eagles plan to stay active trying to turn things around.

    As the season began no one knew what to expect of the Eagles. On paper their team looked amazing but most fans feel that way every year. Thus far into the season the Eagles have lived up to how they look on paper.

    Starting the season 5-2 and leading the NFC East by two games the Eagles have come out swinging for the fences. A lot of pressure has fallen on rookie QB Cory Pope. Thus far into his young career he has shown exactly what you expect out of a young QB in the NFL. He has had games where he has looked magnificent. Then games that leave you scratching your head wondering how he even got in the NFL.

    The defense for the Eagles has been living up to their hype. The new owner Coleman placed a lot of focus on moving this team to a high powered defensive team and they have looked the part. Starting the season by shutting out the New York Giants 31-0. They have a combined 23 sacks 8 of which belongs to DE Brandon Graham who is tied for the lead in the NFL.

    But some sad news to report. Chip Kelly in the middle of the season has decided to step away from the team. Reports are coming in that upper management and players have had multiple issues working with Kelly and after some meetings this was the best decision for both parties. Taking his place is Ron Rivera. Rivera is highly respected around the league for his ability connect with his players and bring the best out of them on the field. Rivera takes over a squad who is in prime position to make a playoff push and now has to finish the deal.

    Mid Season MVP. Demarco Murray. Murray is 2nd in the NFL right now in terms of rushing yards and has been carrying this young offense on his back behind a very strong new offensive line. He has played a big part in the Eagles wins and is the workhorse here in Philly.
