The Philadelphia Eagles have started the 2023 season in familiar territory.
They are undefeated through four games, a mark they also achieved last season.
However, a commonly-held belief in the locker room is that they aren’t satisfied with their performances thus far, despite what their record says.
If this is the case, Dave Helman of FOX Sports NFL believes the league is in trouble.
According to Helman, “If this is what the Eagles look like when they’re not clicking, it’s scary to think what happens when they really figure it out.”

The Eagles dominated the NFC last season en route to a Super Bowl appearance.
Even though they ultimately lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, they cemented their place as a dominant force.
If Jalen Hurts and the offense truly haven’t found their footing, it could be a long year for the rest of the conference.
The Eagles have scored 25+ points in each of their games this season, a mark that many teams would love to have.
However, this team seems to hold themselves to a higher standard, and that this isn’t good enough.
The Eagles had one of the league’s best defenses last year, an area they have only improved in the offseason.
How can they improve from here, as Helman indicates?
The NFL Season is grueling, and teams can get tired and worn down due to injuries.
If the Eagles stay fully healthy, Helman and other analysts believe they’ll be a tough team to beat.
