The Philadelphia Eagles preparation for the 2008 season has begun.
Luckily because they play in the weak NFC and even weaker NFC East, they are not far from the playoffs. Both Dallas and Washington were exposed as frauds, and the Giants are good, but far from great. As a matter of fact the Birds only finished a a game behind New York. As any true Philadelphia fan will tell you we really don’t give a rat’s butt about any team but our own, so lets not give these other raggedy teams any more ink.
The Eagles want list should include at the top a big time receiver. They need a guy who can make plays on talent alone and can create opportunities for the other receivers. At the time I was at the top of the list calling for TO’s head. The Eagles had won as a family and the thought of any disruptions led me to believe would lead to the Bird’s downfall. But now, in retrospect and as any good Monday morning quarterback will tell you, probably Donavan and the rest of the team should have recognized the immense talent TO was, the way he opened up the offense for others, and maybe he should have been treated as a special talent. That goes against my grain, but that seems to be the way it is with many of today’s self-centered egotistical athletes.
Brian Westbrook can’t do it alone. The Birds need a big back or at least a back that can pound the ball 25 or 30 times a game. This should open things up even more for the guy Michael Strahan calls “the best all around offensive player in the league”.
We will talk more later, in the mean time “Lets Go Flyers”
