Coming into the 2017 NFL season, no one expected the Philadelphia Eagles to win a Super Bowl. However, their defense came together, Carson Wentz was special, and Nick Foles sealed the deal in Super Bowl 52.
Now, with the roster they have assembled, this is a team that could win multiple Super Bowls in next few years.
Former Eagles WR Torrey Smith, who was traded to the Carolina Panthers recently after helping the Eagles win Super Bowl 52, believes the Eagles will be a championship caliber team for a long time:
“That’s an organization(Eagles) I have a lot of respect for; that’s an organization that I know will win for a long time,” Smith said at his charity basketball game on Saturday night. “And they’re building it that way, and they’re taking full advantage of not having to pay a quarterback right now because when Carson’s(Wentz) time comes you gonna have to need a Brinks’ truck the size of this arena for him. He’s that type of player, and he’s a great leader. And the Eagles are going to be very good for a long time.”
At this point, Philly has added to their already formidable defensive line with the additions of Michael Bennett via trade and Haloti Ngata in free agency. Furthermore, they were able to retain their star linebacker Nigel Bradham, and 2017 second-round draft pick, CB Sidney Jones is healthy and ready to contribute in 2018. Lastly, their star QB Carson Wentz should be back and healthy in 2018.
If all goes right for Philly, they could easily be playing in Super Bowl 53!
