The 2022 season has been an excellent one for the Philadelphia Eagles. They went into their bye in Week 7 riding high as the last undefeated team in the NFL. They will look to make it 7-0 this upcoming weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have had mixed results since Kenny Pickett took over as the starting quarterback.
The Eagles will be looking to take full advantage just as they have in their first six games of the season. Philadelphia currently has one of the best offenses and defenses in the NFL and should be on the lookout for upgrades ahead of the trade deadline next week.
There aren’t many holes on this team. They are in the top five in yardage and points on both offense and defense as they have dominated their opponents all season. While some people will say that their schedule has been underwhelming, the games still need to be played. We have seen plenty of upsets through seven weeks and will see plenty more, but the Eagles have handled every team that has been put in front of them.
At 6-0, Philadelphia cannot get complacent. They need to be on the search for even marginal upgrades because the other contenders around the league are going to be doing the same thing. One player that they should be keeping an eye on is Robert Quinn of the Chicago Bears.
The Eagles by no means are desperate for a pass rusher, as they have 17 sacks on the season, which is a top-10 mark. But, you can never have too many pass rushers, which the Los Angeles Rams proved last season when they acquired Von Miller from the Denver Broncos for their Super Bowl stretch run.
Quinn may not be on the level of Miller, but he is coming off an 18.5 sack season in 2021. Acquiring someone of his caliber would be a sizable boost when added to a group that consists of Hassan Reddick, Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox and Josh Sweat.
Pursuing Quinn from the Bears also means that he won’t end up with another contending team in the NFL. That should be more than enough motivation for the Eagles to make a move as they would rather have Quinn rushing the passer for them instead of potentially having to game plan how to stop him.
