The Eagles finished the year with 4 wins. Everyone’s heard plenty of talk over the last few seasons of parity in the NFL, but what kind of season could the Eagles put together following such a bad year?
Over the past 10 seasons, 27 teams have finished the year with 4 wins (not including this year.)
The good news?
Ten of them (more than 1/3) have followed a 4 win season with 9+ wins, with six teams registering 10 wins or better.
Here is the frequency chart:
Quick rebounds not only happen, they do so relatively often. The coaching decision is obviously huge, but regardless, given the injuries this team sustained and the past performance of 4 win teams, seen in the chart above, it’s not unreasonable to expect the Eagles to contend for a playoff position as soon as next year.
Of the big increases, how many came with new coaches? And what about QB status (new vet, rookie, second year…etc?)
