As of Friday morning, the Philadelphia Eagles have a 500 million to 1 chance of making the playoffs, so it is safe to say that this season is done for the birds.
This football season had a ton of unexpected twists and turns. It started off with the Eagles hiring Doug Pederson as their new head coach. Then, Howie Roseman traded what seemed like every draft pick for the next three years for a kid out of North Dakota in Carson Wentz, who is now the franchise quarterback. With the injury to Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Roseman pulled a couple of strings to trade Sam Bradford in exchange for a first-round draft pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Eagles had a ton of surprises this season. Whether it was using three long snappers in one game or having an FCS athlete lead the team on the field each and every week, the Eagles always managed to keep the fans hands on their head and on the edge of their seats.
There hasn’t been any positive news for the Eagles in the past 11 weeks. The team is 2-8 since the bye week and Wentz has lost his game that everyone compared to Peyton Manning. So, who has been the biggest surprise this season?
