Michael Irvin calls Philadelphia a Dynasty, believes they can start the season 5-0
We might need to get a wellness check on Michael Irvin. Although I absolutely love watching a beloved Dallas Cowboys legend go all-in on the Philadelphia Eagles, you have to wonder what his intentions are calling the Eagles a “Philadelphia Dynasty” on national television.
Michael Irvin: A Philadelphia Dynasty
“…a Philadelphia dynasty. They’ve got such great young talent and you’ve the physicalness (sic) of A.J. Brown on one side and the speed of DeVonta Smith on the other. I’m telling you right now, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the schedule plays out right, they could be 5-0 getting ready to go into that Week 6 game against the Dallas Cowboys. They can win those first five games easy.”
Wow, well thanks Michael Irvin. I guess?
This reminds me of Dougie P on the Art Museum steps after the Eagles Super Bowl saying that this is the “New Norm” in Philadelphia. Or you can throw it back to Vince Young calling that 4-12 Eagles team the “Dream Team” before the season started.
Again, I love the optimism but I think we need to pump the breaks on all the Eagles praise. We’ve been here before too many times. We don’t even have a second cornerback or safety yet. I know there have been a ton of weapon improvements on the offensive side of the football and it looks like we have a few key additions on the defensive side as well, but there’s no shot I’m buying into any Eagles hype mid-May.
There are just too many question marks on the roster and yes, that includes our starting quarterback in Jalen Hurts.
However, Irvin is right about the beginning of the season for the birds. The Eagles have a VERY easy start to the 2022 season. The first four opponents had a combined record of 21-46 in 2021. Starting the season in Detroit, a team they beat by 38 points last season is a gift.
From there, they play the Vikings in the home opener, then Carson Wentz and the Commanders followed by Doug Pederson and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Eagles could realistically start their season 4-0 heading to Arizona on October 9th to face the Cardinals looking to hit that “Philadelphia Dynasty” mark Irvin speaks of with a 5-0 start to the season.
