Fear in Eagle Land!

Philly is distracted with the the Phillies (myself included) and the Eagles have fallen to page 2. This reeks of a typical Eagles let down week. I have grave concerns about the Eagles playing Oakland. I see trap game all over this. I hope McNabb’s teammates take his comments to heart and stay focused preparing this week. Oakland is pitiful. Oakland is as bad as they look on TV. Oakland however does have a decent defense (ok maybe not, 30th in the league but they do have Seymour). Oakland does have a viable running game. What Oakland does not have is a passing game. Russell should NOT be in the NFL. I bet Oakland is kicking themselves by lettting go of Garcia. I hope that Trotter is back to form going into this week or Eagles fans have reason to be concerned. I have these nightmares in which I see Michael Bush running all over the place. The Eagles are 8th in run defense but these stats are skewed because of our easy competition early on. Stats don’t tell the whole story.  This may be enough for Oakland to sneak out a last minute field goal to win. Especially if McNabb isn’t accurate with the passing game and Vick’s wildcat isn’t upgraded. Because at this moment I do not see Westbrook running well.

All that being said I do feel that Andy Reid has adapted a bit and this is the new and improved Andy. I have a bad vibe and I hope for all of our sakes I’m wrong. Does anyone else out there have any fears? Or am I just a nervous Philly fan who is getting gun shy from standing on my hands watching Brad Lidge pitch?
