I actually love that we're not being given respect. Like you said, you have to earn it. The Eagles were paper champions a couple years ago with their offseason additions and it led to disappointment. There's no doubting the talent on this team, but them being able to put it together is a legitimate concern. They haven't shown they could do that yet, not even in the pre-season. I'm not worried though, I still think this is a .500 or above team.

Obviously being 8-8 or even 9-7 would suck because then we'd probably be in the hunt for a new QB and god knows if our next option would be better or worse than Free. But still, we've got some pieces and this team could be at an elite level if everything comes together. There's just too many ifs to label them contenders.

From the above ariticle:

Quote:
• Josh Freeman was off target on 24.3 percent of his attempts last year, worst among qualified quarterbacks. Freeman completed 54.8 percent of his passes last season, his lowest percentage since his rookie year.


This is why we get no respect... No one knows what Freeman will show up. Honestly I how can we get the respect? We haven't shown it on the field

We play in a stacked divison, our quarterback is a giant unknown, our pass rush sucked last year and lost its leading sucky pass rusher, and our defensive backfield was put together in one offseason.

Of course we have no respect, we don't deserve it.

This.

You could throw in an extreme lack of depth and regular injuries every year.

We need to win games and win them against good teams.

Pretty much agreed. If you don't have consistency at the qb position playoffs are pretty much a long shot.

You can't get respect until you have a consistent product on the field under center. When your QB does a downward spiral after having a monster mid-way season - its hard to build optimistic with casual fans/fans.
