Playoff finish did not qualify

The 1993 Philadelphia Eagles season was their 61st in the National Football League (NFL). The team failed to improve upon their previous output of 11–5, winning only eight games[1] and failed to qualify for the playoffs for only the second time in six seasons. Ten of their sixteen games were decided by a touchdown or less. The team was without future hall of fame defensive end Reggie White, who had signed via free agency with the Green Bay Packers.

The downturn was directly related to the twin losses of QB Randall Cunningham (broken leg) and WR Fred Barnett (ACL tear) to season-ending injuries in a 35–30 win against the New York Jets on October 3. Though the Eagles won their first four, following that game, lost six straight to fall out of playoff contention. Bubby Brister was only able to do so much in a starting role, but the club rallied to win their final three games, including their first road win in San Francisco in 10 years.

One notable feat by an opponent came on Halloween in Philadelphia, when Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith sloshed his way to 237 yards and one touchdown at a rainy Veterans Stadium in a 23–10 victory.

Offseason[edit]

The Eagles held training camp at West Chester University of Pennsylvania for the 14th consecutive year.

NFL draft[edit]

The 1993 NFL draft was held April 25–26, 1993. The draft was reduced to eight rounds, down from 12. Because the Eagles tied with five other teams at 11–5 in 1992, they rotated in picking 20th to 25th in the eight rounds. There were 224 players taken in this draft by the NFL. The Eagles had two first round picks at number 19 and 24 overall. With those, they chose Lester Holmes, an offensive tackle out of Jackson State, and Leonard Renfro, a defensive tackle out of Colorado.
