  1. Going into the 2015 season, considering all of the changes throughout the offseason, what do you believe your teams top 3 strengths are and top 3 weaknesses? Strengths 1. Running attack - The Eagles picked up the rushing leader in free agency with Demarco Murray after trading McCoy. Both are top backs in the league but I believe Murray fits our system more and is a much better fit. My only fear is his fumbling issue. If he can control his fumbling, we will be fine. Bringing in Ryan Mathews, another quality starter in this league truly bolsters our running attack. We can truly wear defenses down with these two backs. Demarco can beat them down and then Mathews can gash them, Having Sproles as our 3 back with his quick elusiveness and speed along with pass catching abilities gives us the most multifaceted and lethal backfield in the game. 2. Pass rush - We were tied for 2nd most sacks in the league and I think our front 7 got much better. We lost Trent Cole who was productive but aging and gave Brandon Graham a full time starting position. In limited snap opportunities playing about 30% of the snaps in each of the past two years, Graham has been the most productive and efficient pass rusher in the game. Can he be as effective in a full time role? I hope so and believe he can. Adding Kiko helps and Kendricks is a blitz nightmare because of his elite speed. He racked up 4 sacks in only 11 games started (injury) and believe he will be more involved in blitzing. He was VERY effective in stunt and twist blitzes up the middle.Barwin had a career high last year in sacks. Fletcher Cox getting double teamed will definitely open up opportunities for these guys and I think we will have another big sack campaign this year. 3. Special Teams - We had the best special teams in the league last year and it helped us win a lot of games. I don't expect another year like last season but I do believe we will still have an elite ST unit and it will contrinute to wins. Weaknesses 1. Corner - Thank God Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams are gone. That alone makes our secondary better. We did sign Byron Maxwell but who knows how he will respond being a #1 corner outside of the Seattle defense being a benefactor opposite Sherman and the best safety duo in the league. Maxwell will be on the spot pretty early going against Julio Jones week one so..lol Still question marks of our 2nd starting corner. Apparently, Nolan Carroll is the favorite but he hasn't done anything that inspires confidence and Eric Rowe is a rookie. 2. Guard - We lost both our starting guards. Evan Mathis one of the best guards in the league and we lost Herremans as well. I have no reason to have faith in the other guys at this point outside of hearing what our camp is saying. But "I" never saw them in full time roles. 3. Safety - Malcolm Jenkins had a very solid season last year but our opposite starting safety is up in the air. Earl Wolff is hanging on a thread and it's either do or die here. Jaylen Watkins name has been thrown around who was a drafted corner last year and Walter Thurmond has been taking reps at safety. Who knows but it remains a concern until I see it improve.
