SI’s Peter King Has the Eagles Ranked 6th in the NFL

Peter King of Sports Illustrated is out with his first power ranking of the season, and  he likes what he sees from the Eagles, as he has him ranked 6th in the league. Here’s what he has to say about them:

6. Philadelphia
To me, this is the start of a two-year window for the Eagles. You don’t know how much longer Donovan McNabb has at some form of his peak, and if he doesn’t get the job done this year or next, the Eagles are sure to look for someone who can lift a talented team over the top. The offense will be younger and more explosive with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin sure to be used in many three-receiver sets, and maybe even some two-receiver sets. Andy Reid will find a valuable role for LeSean McCoy early, maybe even as the third-down back to give Brian Westbrook a consistent blow. McNabb has the best weaponry, in tandem, that he’s ever had on offense. He’s got to lift his game to a higher level in big games. I think this team gives him a better chance than the first Terrell Owens team in Philly.

    Pete has the birds ranked sixth but the Bears are 4th. As a result I don’t know how much stock to put into the guy. It at least gives you something to talk about and debate. I still think the Eagles could have gotten Tony Gonzalez without sacrificing anything from this year’s draft and if they had gotten then that they would have to be considered THE team to beat in the NFC.
