The Eagles are looked at as one of the teams with the brightest futures in the NFL. Last years offense was dominant in the run game, as they had the number 1 rushing offense in the NFL. The run offense has stayed in tact for the most part, with everyone from last year returning aside from Jordan Howard. This off season they added pass catchers like AJ Brown and Zach Pascal, and with AJ Browns talent they will want to air out the ball more than last year. The question is, do they abandon their roots in the run offense that was so successful last year, or do they come out with the same run heavy attack in the first game against Detroit?

It is a guarantee that the offense will be based off Jalen Hurts and if he has developed more as a passer or not. The Eagles will obviously want to throw more, since they have one of the best pass catching duos they’ve ever had. In OTA’s he looked like hes coming along a little bit, and AJ Brown as gone on record on Twitter defending the QB from people saying he looked bad in practice.

Even if the Eagles become a better passing offense, they should not be afraid to run the ball a lot. Last year they proved with the elite O-Line, and Jalen hurts running ability, that they can run the ball on anybody.  Miles Sanders is looking to have a breakout season since he is on a contract year, and if he can stay healthy he will produce a lot more than last year. Kenny Gainwell is looking to have another good season in his second year, and Boston Scott will continue to kill the Giants twice a season.

The Eagles passing attack clearly got better with the additions they’ve made, but they should still build off last year and continue to try to be a dominant running offense.
