Reese and Innes are probably a little too optimistic for me. Bringing up last season doesn’t mean much, because all the other teams in the division will likely be better than they were last year. Sure, you can include the Eagles in that, but should they really be considered a favorite to win the division right now? Probably not.
But, it’s Merrill Reese, so I’d expect this from him. He’s the Eagles’ radio version of Dave Spadaro with hair, but likable.
