Eagles fans are probably sick of spending the whole offseason hearing the NFL media speculate about a potential “Super Bowl hangover.” This is still clearly one of the best teams in the entire NFL, and talking about a Super Bowl hangover just feels like people trying to stir up trouble.
That’s why I absolutely love the training camp schedule that Nick Sirianni has set out. He’s fully acknowledging that Philadelphia has everything it needs to go all the way this year.
His approach to training camp is going to be controversial with old-school pundits and talking heads, but he’s making the perfect call for putting this team in a position for long-term success.
Eagles Training Camp Schedule
More and more, we’re seeing in sports that taking an old-school “toughness over everything” approach simply isn’t the best way to win, and I think that’s especially true with a team like the Eagles.
Most of this roster is returning from last year’s NFC-winning squad, so we know how talented they are. The coaches know about the players’ work ethic and toughness. The players themselves know how much hard work it takes to win and have that final crushing defeat motivating them to work even harder in 2023.
There’s no need for rah-rah speeches, two-a-days and grueling workouts to inspire these guys.
But you know what is crucially important every year? Staying healthy. Your roster can have all the talent in the world, but guys on IR aren’t helping you win a championship.
The Eagles organization knows what it takes to get ready for a season, and there’s no need to be concerned about whether they’re doing enough. Keeping guys as healthy as possible while completing that preparation is the name of the game.
It’s still early, of course, but this has all the makings of being another Super Bowl season in Philly.
