You do know that the Patriots lost to the Eagles BACKUP QB - Right?
Next year the Patriots will lose to their starting QB.
It's tough to repeat.. as great as the Pats have been the past 15+ seasons, only once have they repeated (over a decade ago)... and they are the only team to repeat as SB champions in past ~20 years. Its tough to repeat.

Still, i don't see any team in the NFC dispatching the Eagles.. they were the best team (in the NFC) from start to finish.... I don't see that changing next year. If anything, I expect them to even be better.. still, its tough to repeat! IMO, the only team that can stop the Eagles next year (in the NFC) would be the Eagles themselves....

Sometimes your your own worst enemy... The Eagles are just as likely to shoot themselves in the foot as another team in the NFC is likely to leap frog them...

Well it will be tougher in the NFC then the AFC. Much tougher. Teams like the Vikings, Saints are also very good and pretty well rounded. And that doesn't even include teams like the Falcons, Packers, Panthers, Rams and Seahawks.

The biggest threat is going to be the 49'ers.

Yep. Should be more of an NFC war next season.

If you or anyone else thinks the Eagirls are going to repeat, you're insane. Philadelphia is one of those one and done teams; they win one SB and everyone's hooting and hollering about a repeat of next year. The Pats have dominated the AFC for the past 15+ seasons, so unless another AFC team steps up, then expect the Pats to be back in the SB.

You don't know very much about the Eagles. Do you?

John F S is right. The 49ers obviously got off to a rough start this past season as they lost their first nine games. Five of those losses were by a total of 13 points. Picking up Garropolo from the Pats? Huge move! They won 6 out of their last 7 games.

For the past 3 seasons the 49ers have finished last in the NFC West. I believe that will change in 2018.

I don't necessarily think the Eagles are a "shoe-in" to win next year, but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they do win another Super Bowl during Pederson and Wentz's time here.
