The Philadelphia Eagles fell just short of the Lombardi Trophy during the 2022 NFL season.
After falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, the Eagles are looking to 2023 with a renewed sense of hope.
The NFC hasn’t necessarily gotten much better during the offseason, paving the way for another deep playoff run for the Eagles.
In a recent installment of Good Morning Football, linebacker Nakobe Dean highlighted the outlook for the Eagles in 2023.
“We got a lot of underdogs on the team, a lot of people who play with a lot of chips on their shoulders,” Dean said.

The Eagles have made significant changes to their roster during the offseason, including a few highly-touted draft picks.
Dean went to the University of Georgia and recognized Howie Roseman’s willingness to draft players from Georgia.
However, he doesn’t believe this is a personal bias from Roseman, rather, “he picked the best available guys,” as Dean highlighted.
Either way, the Eagles have five former Georgia defenders on their team.
Georgia has won the last two college football titles and continues to be a force to be reckoned with.
Dean, along with Jordan Davis, were massive contributors to the defense during their Super Bowl run last season.
With any luck, first-round talents Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith can live up to the hype, also contributing to the defense in a big way.NEXT: Eagles Announce Signings Of 2 Draft Picks
