The Philadelphia Eagles season ended on January 4 with a last-second field goal in the Wildcard round of the playoffs. Given the spring and summer in Philadelphia sports, it feels like a decade ago.
But the long wait is almost over. The Eagles season-opener is on Sept. 7. The preseason opener is on Aug. 8. Training camp opens on Saturday.
Saturday also marks the beginning of Chip Kelly’s second season as Eagles head coach. His debut in the NFL brought an NFC East championship, the Eagles first playoff game in three years and a 10-win season. Not bad at all.
But year two, at least for now, brings questions of the future.
