Eagles Schedule Posted

So after much wait the 2010-11 NFL Schedule is out and for the Birds this year might be a tough one. Despite the return of Donovan McNabb to Philly on Oct. 3rd the Birds have some very tough home games on their plate this year.

Also the Birds only MNF appearance will be in Washington as they make their first visit to McNabb and the new look Redskins on Oct. 15th.

The Birds will open the season hosting Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers before almost locks as they travel to Detroit and Jacksonville.

The key game for the Eagles will be on Nov. 7th as they host Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. The good thing about this game is it comes right after the Birds week 8 bye and historically Andy Reed is undefeated (9-0) after the bye week.

With the realignment of divisional games to later in the season the schedule bodes well for new QB Kevin Kolb who will have time to get adjusted before facing the grueling NFC East. But before they get to the brunt of their divisional schedule they will have to host the upstart Atlanta Falcons and visit Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears before having back-to-back NFC East road games.

Right now most experts including Adam Schefter of ESPN have the Eagles going somewhere between 9-7 and 8-8.
