FINALLY: Football season is just around the corner!!
Okay, so more like it’s on the other side of town, but with the release of the NFL schedule, we are one step closer to the best time of the year!
Even with the start of the 2017 NFL season being months away, and after literally staring at the Philadelphia Eagles‘ schedule for hours after its release, I think I have a pretty good idea on how it will turn out. I can be totally wrong at the end of the year or I can be a total psychic and be 100% correct. Either way, it won’t matter because every year is our year and I will die before ever admitting, at any given moment, that we are not Super Bowl contenders.
The Philadelphia Eagles start off the season on the road. They head to Washington to play the Redskins and then fly to Kansas City a week later. I’ll be (slightly) realistic and say we go 1-1. It’s always tough to play two straight road games no matter what time of the season, plus with a seasoned head coach in Andy Reid, it can be a grueling game for Doug Pederson coaching against his former boss.
