EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - At 5:01 p.m. on Sunday, Andy Reid walked through the double doors of the visitors' locker room at MetLife Stadium. He greeted his wife and daughter. Together, the three sat on a golf cart and waited to be taken to the team bus. From there, Reid returned to South Philadelphia and prepared for his exit as coach of the Eagles. One hour earlier, Reid experienced the worst loss of the worst season in his 14 years as coach. The New York Giants dominated the Eagles, 42-7, and Reid's team finished 4-12, the poorest record of his career.

How good are the New York Giants? That question has been asked often at various times during the 21st century, and chances are whoever answered got it wrong. The 2007 and 2011 Giants are the examples every middling playoff contender holds up, saying: "See, if you get in, you can win. " And now it appears coach Tom Coughlin has another one of those teams. This, of course, matters to the Eagles, because they also appear to have one of those teams, and it's entirely possible that only the team that survives the race to win the NFC East will get into the playoffs.

In 2007, the New England Patriots were only the second team in NFL history to run the table in the regular season, going 16-0. Their offense was unstoppable. They averaged a then-NFL-record 36.8 points per game. Their average margin of victory was 19.7 points. And then they ran into the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII and lost, 17-14. They lost because the Giants' defense spent most of the game making quarterback Tom Brady's life miserable. They were constantly in his face and moving him off his throwing spot.

And so, with an unusual mix of optimism and pessimism, another Philadelphia Eagles season begins. The media buzz - traditional and social - is in full roar. The civic anticipation in advance of Sunday's opener with the Cleveland Browns is, like the humidity, unavoidable. The franchise's marketing machine is racing like a Porsche engine. There's nonstop Eagles talk on the radio, special sections in the newspapers, preview shows on TV, podcasts on the, well, wherever it is that podcasts exist.

Sometimes the sequence of events changes everything. In his three seasons as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, Chip Kelly posted a 25-22 record. Considering Kelly took over a 4-win team that everyone knew was in need of a major rebuild, a winning record through the first three seasons with a division championship would normally be viewed as a good start. But Kelly got there by going 10-6 and winning the NFC East in his rookie season; then he went 10-6 again followed by a 5-11 record when he was fired with one game remaining in the 2015 season.

(Teams listed in predicted order of finish) NFC EAST Washington Redskins Last season: 9-7 (Won division; lost to Green Bay in wild-card) Coach: Jay Gruden (13-19 in two seasons) Norman invasion: The Redskins were 25th in pass defense and went out and got Josh Norman from Carolina, the best available cornerback. When you share a division with Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham, and Paul Turner (a little sarcasm), having a shutdown corner is crucial. Outlook: If Sam Bradford was miffed when the Eagles drafted his replacement, imagine how Kirk Cousins feels.

It was an interception at the worst time possible. Eli Manning threw the pass. Rueben Randle was supposed to catch it. The ball was placed slightly behind Randle, but he could have caught it had he run a precise route. The Eagles had a similar play last season when Mark Sanchez threw an ill-advised pass to the lazy-route running Miles Austin and the ball was picked off in the end zone. Austin was released a week later. Randle's dubious moment occurred around the same time, but survived until the end of the season.

As a free agent, Rueben Randle didn't earn much security, but he won't be lacking confidence during his first season with the Eagles. The 24-year-old wide receiver, who spent his first four NFL seasons with the rival New York Giants, signed a one-year contract with the Eagles last week. The deal is worth $1.025 million, with $500,000 guaranteed. With incentives, it could be worth more than $3 million. Randle held a news conference on Friday at the NovaCare Complex and did not hesitate when asked if he thinks he will be a starter at a position that could use an upgrade.

The Eagles have confirmed interviews with the following coaches: Doug Pederson, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Age: 47 Info: Pederson is a former Eagles quarterback and assistant coach who comes with Andy Reid's endorsement. He cannot be hired until the Chiefs complete their playoff run, but Pederson's connection to the organization makes him a strong candidate. He spent 12 years as an NFL quarterback.

The Eagles have interviewed inside candidates, outside candidates, a running backs assistant, offensive coordinators, and a former head coach. But for the first time since they began their search for a new head coach, they met with a Super Bowl winner. The team confirmed that it interviewed former New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin on Monday. Coughlin was the sixth coach to interview for the vacancy, joining Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Eagles running back coach Duce Staley, and former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase.

Tom Coughlin stopped short of saying farewell last Tuesday. He spent 12 years as the New York Giants' head coach - almost all of his 60s - and put two Super Bowl trophies on their mantel. His tenure ended after missing the postseason for four consecutive years, and the stage was set for the 69-year-old to exit with grace. That's not Coughlin. He arrived five minutes early - a Coughlin custom - and offered 20 minutes of enthusiasm that made him appear more of an up-and-coming coordinator than a future Hall of Famer looking ahead to retirement.

The Eagles interviewed Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson for the team's head coaching vacancy on Sunday. Pederson met with the Eagles' three-man search party - owner Jeffrey Lurie, vice president of football operations Howie Roseman, and team president Don Smolenski - in Kansas City. The Chiefs beat the Texans, 30-0, in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. They will meet the Patriots in the divisional round on Saturday afternoon. If the Eagles have tagged Pederson as their next coach, they will have to wait until the Chiefs are eliminated from the postseason to hire him. The team has confirmed five interviews - former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who was hired by the Dolphins on Saturday; New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo; Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur; Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley; and Pederson.
