Considering the impact that many thought the Eagles would have on the 2020 finals, a first week exit at the hands of the Pies marred their season.
The Eagles were looking good for most of the season before multiple losses booted them out of the top four and into sudden death territory.
Lucky for Adam Simpson, he still has bounds of quality to play with to have a red hot crack at 2021.
1. BEST WIN
Round 8 vs Collingwood: Although it was a game that the Eagles were expected to win, an 11 goal drubbing of the Pies never loses its shine.
The Pies were severely undermanned, but that didn't stop Josh J. Kennedy kicking seven goals and Tim Kelly playing arguably his best game at West Coast.
