The Eagles also had an extremely banged up Offensive Line, which isn't even good when healthy.
Again, based on what?
They're incredibly overrated. If Mike Vick was god's gift to the NFL like some were saying he wouldn't have lost his first game in the playoffs. The team is dangerous when they fire on all cylinders as Jon says, but guess what? So are most other NFL teams. They have yet to prove to me that they will be SB contenders. There are better teams and I think the Giants are equivalent to them- it took one of the biggest chokes of the year for them to clinch to NFC east instead of us. If it takes a choke like that, I doubt one team is infinitely better than another.
