For the past 10 seasons Donovan McNabb has been the starting quarterback for Philadelphia. In that time span he has led the team to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl but zero championships. After a blockbuster trade with Washington this past offseason, McNabb is now the signal-caller for the NFC East Division rival Redskins and in his place will be four year vet Kevin Kolb.

The main reason that Head Coach Andy Reid pulled the trigger on this deal was his confidence that Kolb’s big time arm is a perfect fit for his pass-happy offense. Last season while subbing for an injured McNabb, Kolb became the first QB in NFL history to throw for over 300 yards in each of his first two starts.

Given the fact that the Eagles have built their offense around the pass with WR’s DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin along with TE Brent Celek, you can rest assured that they will come out throwing the ball all over the field in 2010.

In his first two seasons in the league, Jackson has become a human highlight reel by making one big play after another. In 2009 he led the team with 1,156 receiving yards and nine TD’s. His most amazing stat was an 18.6 yards per catch average which was the highest in the league among starting wide receivers. Maclin had a productive rookie year with 56 catches for 773 yards and Celek actually led the team in receptions with 76.

There will be a transition at the running back position as well. Gone is nine year veteran Brian Westbrook and in his place with be second year man LeSean McCoy. As a rookie, McCoy rushed for 637 yards on a 155 carries. While he does not have the pass catching skills of Westbrook, he is a solid runner that is capable of tearing off some big gains.

In 2009 Philadelphia’s vaunted defense lost some of its intensity with the departure of S Brian Dawkins and the death of defensive coordinator Jim Johnson. In an effort to restore itself to its former glory, Philadelphia turned to the draft to inject some youth and some depth across the entire unit.

First round pick DE Brandon Graham was brought in to help stop the run as well as bolster an outside pass rush that had been lacking. The Eagles are also hoping that second round pick S Nate Allen can step up and fill Dawkins shoes.

Last season Philadelphia was 6-2 at home and 5-3 on the road. The Eagles were 4-2 in the division, but both defeats were to Dallas including an ugly 24-0 shutout in the final regular season game that not only cost them the division title, but a first round bye in the playoffs.

Against the spread they went 8-7-1; 4-4 at home and 4-3-1 on the road.

As one of the youngest teams in the league, Philadelphia has a ton of potential that needs to be transformed into performance on the field. Kolb is probably the best example of this. If he plays up to his capabilities, this team has a legitimate shot at winning the NFC. If he falters, they could end up with a losing record.

With all the talent surrounding him, I see the Eagles falling somewhere in between this season.

2010 Prediction: 2nd in the NFC East
Win Total: OVER
