**The following is my prediction as of 4/19/13. This is subject to change based on future developments prior to the season starting.
Week 1: Monday, Sept. 9 at Washington Redskins, 7:10 p.m. ET
Battle of the read-options, but RG3 may not be ready. Eagles WIN in Chip’s debut.
Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 15 vs. San Diego Chargers, 1 p.m. ET
Rookie head coach vs. rookie head coach. Chip shows us why he was the choice over Mike McCoy. Eagles WIN.
Week 3: Thursday, Sept. 19 vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 8:25 p.m. ET
The return of Reid gets a mixed reaction. Andy’s predictability shows, Eagles WIN, and Philly is in a state of euphoria!
Week 4: Sunday, Sept. 29 at Denver Broncos, 4:25 p.m. ET
Eagles flying high after 3-0 start to Chip era, but come crashing down to earth in their first LOSS.
Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 6 at New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET
Chip learns why playing in the NFC East is tough, Eagles suffer their second LOSS.
Week 6: Sunday, Oct. 13 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m. ET
Schiano can thank Chip in person for not taking the Tampa job last year. Eagles LOSE 3rd straight.
Week 7: Sunday, Oct. 20 vs. Dallas Cowboys, 1 p.m. ET
Though Dallas week isn’t what it once was, Chip and the Eagles assert themselves in 4th WIN.
Week 8: Sunday, Oct. 27 vs. New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET
By this time Vick should have his yearly injury. Chip gets revenge on NY and gets Eagles to 5-3.
Week 9: Sunday, Nov. 3 at Oakland Raiders, 4:05 p.m. ET
The Raiders really just kinda stink. Eagles move to 6-3
Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 10 at Green Bay Packers, 1 p.m. ET
Aaron Rodgers shows Chip why having a franchise QB is important. Eagles LOSE.
Week 11: Sunday, Nov. 17 vs. Washington Redskins, 1 p.m. ET
RG3 is back in the battle of the read-options II. This time, the Eagles fall and go to 6-5 at the bye.
Week 12: BYE WEEK
Week 13: Sunday, Dec. 1 vs. Arizona Cardinals, 1 p.m. ET
Getting down to crunch time and fresh off bye, Eagles take it to Arizona and move to 7-5.
Week 14: Sunday, Dec. 8 vs. Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET
Chip Kelly: Meet Megatron. Eagles LOSE a heartbreaker here and fall to 7-6.
Week 15: Sunday, Dec. 15 at Minnesota Vikings, 1 p.m. ET
Vikings will be “Ponder”ing a QB change, Eagles WIN and get to 8-6. Eagles fever in full force!
Week 16: Sunday, Dec. 22 vs. Chicago Bears, 1 p.m. ET
Damn, I really hate the Bears! Eagles LOSE and their playoff chances take a serious blow.
Week 17: Sunday, Dec. 29 at Dallas Cowboys, 1 p.m. ET
With the Eagles needing help to make the post season and Dallas needing a win to get in, the Cowboys win in a close one.
Ultimately, this is the first year of a new regime where sweeping changes were made. The Eagles will be competitive and show improvement, but the full transformation won’t happen in one season.
I see an 8-8 record and reason for hope for the future.
