There’s no question about the pressure being put on the Eagles this season in terms of expectations, but Joe Banner, Eagles president, is throwing it out there in today’s Philly Inquirer that the Eagles have from top to bottom the best roster in the ENTIRE LEAGUE:
“I feel this year we have the best roster in the league,” Banner said. “That’s assuming everyone is healthy and standing at the end. You can only make a statement like that on the first day of training camp. After that, anything can happen.
“You get humbled over the years, but since I’ve been working in the league I don’t think the best team has won the Super Bowl any year,” Banner said. “You get a ball bouncing the wrong way, a bad call from the ref, a windy day when you plan to throw a lot. You lose once. Even if you get to the playoffs, and it’s a year where most people would say you did really good, you don’t feel satisfied. There are just too many things out of your control.”
