I know some people on this forum will say trust the FO no matter what happens. I think that's naive. Eagle's owners made about $30 MM two years ago, and I would guess around the same last year. This year, because the they will be so far below the cap, they stand to make around the same again despite the economy. I know its a business, but how many of you feel that we are one player away from being great? I'm not saying we become the Redskins and pretend this is fantasy football, but when the ownership makes this much money, can you blindly believe they doing what's best for the franchise and not their pockets?

On top of that, Philly both the city and fan (through taxes and rediculous seat liscenses) helped fund the Linc, making the team even more profitable. So despite this being a "business," I think we have the right to say something and demand more.

My main point is can we please stop saying the FO has a "plan," that we are all just too shortsighted or stupid to understand? Its not that simple.
