Eyes on the Competition moves out of conference today, checking out the completely remodeled Philadelphia Eagles, a 2015 opponent of the Patriots.  Name me another team that have made more moves (both of quantity and quality) than the Eagles.  You can’t.

The Eagles are highlighted in the NFC because yes – you better believe they can potentially be Super Bowl contenders.  Personally however, I’m on the fence.  I haven’t yet decided if this new make-over (three years in the making) will either blow up in their face or land them a Super Bowl appearance.

The Patriots could find themselves in a tricky position if they start slow this year.

If you’re tired of reading about the dreaded ‘deflategate’ and how New England cuts another cornerback once a week, you have come to the right place.  Eyes On The Competition returns post-draft to breakdown the AFC East, and how things could wind up next year after the draft makeover.

The Tom Brady suspension is still up in the air, but it is safe to assume he will at least miss SOME time.  One game?  Two games?  Personally that’s how I think it will fall.  But who knows, four games is still in play with Captain Touchback hearing the appeal. (more…)
