Shawn Andrews Wants Another Chance

We talked yesterday about how the Eagles need to figure out what’s going on with the offensive line. One of the things we mentioned was the uncertainty that surrounds the Andrews brothers, especially Shawn. After seeming like a great pick early in his career, things took a turn for the worse with Andrews as he was bothered by depression and injuries. Recently, he has received a procedure on his back and is getting close to beginning rehab.

According to, Andrews was on a radio show last week and discussed some things about next season. He feels that his depression issue and injuries have been a low point in his life and he is ready to bounce back. He feels a sense of obligation to both Andy Reid and the city of Philadelphia. It seems that he knows everyone is unhappy with him and he wants to change that.

I’m happy with Andrews comments and I like the attitude he is taking in regards to next season. We don’t know if the Eagles are buying it but I think it’s too early to tell. They will have to monitor his rehab and see how he looks come Training Camp. His rehab could potentially overlap with Training Camp and if it does, it won’t be a good thing for Andrews. Andy Reid is going to want him out on that practice field everyday showing him that he’s still got it. If he can’t do that, it’s going to be the end of the line.

Shawn Andrews over the past two seasons has pissed me off as much as its pissed off everyone else in this city. However, you can’t deny the talent the guy once had. The Eagles desperately need that kind of talent on their line right now and if Andrews can get back to that point it would be a big help. Given his track record though, it’s hard to believe he will. Andrews is right, he does owe this city.

    You have to give the guy a shot because if him and his brother are back and i mean fully back they will make our offensive line one of the best in the league and than the eagles are a few defensive players away from bringing lombardi’s trophy to philly. Without them its gonna be a much harder off season, but this is the andrew family’s last chance. If i dont see the real andrews brothers this season than take a page out of jackie moon’s book in semi pro and trade them both for a washer.
