Eagles Through the Years

Let's start with an overview of the Eagles for this time period. (Buckle up, it isn't going to be pretty!)
Well, at least we are starting off on a high note. At 9-5, 1966 was their last winning season until 1978.

Even the addition of the expansion Falcons (1966) and Saints (1967) didn't help the Eagles. The botching of the "O.J. Simpson sweepstakes" in 1968 was the low-light of that season.  The Eagles started off going 0-11, then won 2 of their last 3 games, losing the #1 overall draft pick (Simpson).

There were some bright spots here and there (QB Roman Gabriel, WR Harold Jackson, S Bill Bradley), but there were too many not-so-bright spots (Norm Snead, Leroy Keyes, etc.)
