Heading into the 2011 season no NFL team received more hype and hoopla then the Philadelphia Eagles. The club came off a 2010 season where they transitioned to Michael Vick at quarterback and finished off the year at 10-7 and suffered a 21-16 playoff loss to Green Bay. After an active offseason of high impact free agent acquisitions the team started poorly in 2011 with a record of 4-8 and missed the playoffs. Philadelphia quietly down the stretch when they fell off of everyone’s radar concluded the regular season a perfect 4-0 to finish at 8-8 in the 2011 campaign.
The current odds for the Philadelphia Eagles 2012 regular season win totals is set at 10 ½ wins with the under favored at -135 odds and the over returning +105 odds. The regular season win total odds were taken from Oddsmaker sportsbook.
What was lost in all of the disappointment for the Philadelphia Eagles 2011 year was the fact the club went a very good 5-1 straight up against the NFC East division. They swept both Washington and Dallas while splitting with the New York Giants. A lot of attention for the poor start was the playoff of the Philadelphia defense as they tried to grasp first year defensive coordinator Juan Castillo’s defense. The Eagles defense jelled in their final four games as the team allowed a combined 46 points during that span. They finished 10th in the NFL in scoring defense and 8th in total defense as a result of their strong finish. On the offensive side of the football a huge issue for the team’s misfortune was ball security. Philadelphia was 31st and second to last in the NFL in turnovers lost at 38 in the 2011 year. Their turnover margin was -14 ranking 30th in the league. Michael Vick had a bad year in 2011. The veteran signal caller completed just 59.8% of his throws and had 18 touchdown passes with 14 interceptions. LeSean McCoy had a solid year for Philadelphia rushing for 1309 yards with 17 touchdowns and a very good 4.8 yards per rush average. Jeremy Maclin is a player to watch for the Eagles in 2012 as he suffered through injuries during the 2011 training camp and through much of the early season. The pick here is playing over 10 ½ wins. Vick will spend time in the film room and correct his turnover problems plus with the Eagles defense improving bet the over so before doing so redeem sportsbook promotion codes.
