Philadelphia Eagles fans are optimistic about their team's chances for the 2014 NFL season, per a recent survey released by the Philadelphia Daily News.

Philadelphia Eagles fans are optimistic about their team's chances for the 2014 NFL season. 

This is the revelation of a recent Philadelphia Daily News survey: 

"Maybe it's because they have abandoned the (Philadelphia) Phillies, the downspiraling Phillies. Maybe it's because they cannot quite embrace the post-tanking (Philadelphia) Sixers. Or maybe it's because they don't know what to make of the (Philadelphia) Flyers because they never know what to make of the Flyers.

"Whatever the reason, Philadelphia fans are wildly optimistic about the Eagles -- with an emphasis on the 'wildly.'

"That is the main takeaway from last week's Daily News Survey: Predicting the Eagles' season. It wasn't a scientific poll, but more than 14,000 votes were cast on the eight questions, so it wasn't nothing, either. 

"And to say that Eagles fans are expecting big things from Chip Kelly in the 2014 season does not begin to describe the expectations of the people who answered our questions. 

"Overall record: 87.5 percent of survey respondents said the Eagles would have at least 10 wins this season. The plurality, 39.5 percent, said the team would win 11 games. 

"Defensive improvement: 92 percent believe that the Eagles' defense, which allowed 23.9 points per game last season, will be stingier this year. 

"Division record: 96.8 percent of respondents said that the Eagles' record in the NFC East would be 4-2 or better."

In another team development, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly remains a mystery man in spite of him already heading into his second season at the helm, per a July 27 update from Dave Spadero of the team's official website

"A full season and then some later, Chip Kelly remains a mystery man to many who have watched the NFL so long and who have so rarely seen someone like Kelly in the league.

"It happens every day now that Training Camp is here: A national reporter visits the NovaCare Complex spends a day watching the training session and talking to people and comes away with more wonderment about the way Kelly runs his football program. 

"Sirius XM's Ross Tucker watched for the first time on Sunday and marveled at the tempo and the energy and the use of some funky mechanisms, like the oversized flyswatters used by practice assistants who pose as defensive linemen mucking up the passing lanes. 

"ESPN's Sal Paolantonio is familiar with the particulars of the on-field work, calling the Eagles 'the most efficient practice' I've ever seen.

"And then there is Peter King, the esteemed writer who covers the NFL for SI.com and TheMMQB.com and who has been around the league forever. He oozes NFL. Coaches and players say things to King that they just don't say to others.

"King's observations with Kelly run deep. A year ago, Kelly was in prove-it mode with King, who wasn't entirely sold on Kelly's ability to make the transition from the college game at Oregon to the NFL in Philadelphia. 

"Now, the perspective has changed. A 10-6 record and an NFC East title have convinced most -- all? -- of those not quite sure about Kelly that he is, in fact, worthy of the aura.

"'Down the stretch last year, I said to somebody that he reminds me, in the second half of year one, the impact that Jimmy Johnson had with the Cowboys in year two,' said King. 'Remember when, 25 years ago he came into the Dallas Cowboys, everybody said 'Wait a minute, you can't win with all of these small, fast guys. You can't win without size in the NFL.' Well, Johnson proved basically you can win with small guys. At one point he had the smallest and lightest defense in the NFL and he won. He built a dominating defense.

"'I think Chip Kelly, by saying to the football establishment, 'Hey, I respect everybody, but we're going to play in a little bit of a different way, we're going to play very fast. Football is football. The way we played at Oregon, there is no reason why we cant' win that way here.' And by December he was proving it.'"
