Would it surprise you to learn it might be the Eagles?
Over the weekend, NFL Total Access posed the question, 'Which is the most-talented team in the league?' Dream team label aside, former journeyman fullback Heath Evans claims it's still the Birds. How could that be, you ask?
The most-talented team is a label many observers thought the Eagles carried into last season, and we all saw how that worked out. They are returning much of the same core, only with some notable additions, so if you felt that way a year ago, it's still plausible today. Former Patriots and Browns outside linebacker Willie McGinnest adds later that it's not all about talent though, and in doing so, maybe touches on part of the problem last season.
The Eagles, of course, signed a ton of free agents as training camp began last summer, many of whom did more harm than good. The theme for this offseason was building around the pieces that were already in place.
