Despite all the offseason losses, the Philadelphia Eagles continue to be at the top of the NFC and, obviously, of their division.
Jalen Hurts will likely take another leap forward, they have one of the best wide receiver duos in the game, and their defense is stacked with young talent.
Nonetheless, NFL analyst Bill Barnwell recently stated that he actually believes that the Dallas Cowboys are a better team right now.
Despite everybody on Get Up!’s set disagreeing with him and pointing out how the Eagles are better at almost every position, Barnwell believes that losing two starting linebackers and their main assistants will come back to haunt them.

Of course, entering the season with a new Defensive Coordinator and Offensive Coordinator after Jonathan Gannon and Shane Steichen, respectively, found positions as head coaches will be a bit of a challenge, but they have plenty of continuity on their coaching staff and most of their stars will come back.
The Cowboys are pretty decent as well and have some solid talent on both sides of the field, but it’s hard to put them over the top, especially when compared to a team that was close to winning the Super Bowl last season.
Dak Prescott continues to be a subject of debate around the league, and it appears that some of his teammates lack confidence in him.
And while there are 52 other players on the roster, there’s simply no way a team can go deep into the playoffs without a good quarterback in today’s game.NEXT: LeSean McCoy Reveals His Thoughts On Fights At Cowboys Practice
