Eagles Fail to Live Up to Hype in 2011

They were way overhyped.
The Eagles struggled early and never recovered. A four-game winning streak at the end came too late and they finished 8-8, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007 and just the fourth time in coach Andy Reid's 13 seasons.
"It's going to motivate us to work harder," quarterback Michael Vick said Monday. "It's very disappointing."
