FanPost

Maybe it's not the media's fault

As an Eagles fan and Philadelphian, I have always blamed the media for Philly fans' bad rep and constant complaining. I always considered the complaining stories and the Donavon McNabb trade talk to be their evil plot to get everyone in this city wild with trade rumors and interested enough to watch their talk everyday (you gotta have something to talk about right?). However, I think the past few days have changed my mind.

In the past 3 DAYS there have been more negative posts on this site from new users spewing hate for the FO that runs a model franchise. The thing that appals me the worst is that most of the reasons the haters bring up just seem wrong to me. I have not seen one bird hatin fanpost that had any sound facts, stats or arguments to back the theory that will bring the Eagles a Superbowl ring.

I'll admit, its really sad to see Dawkins go, but it isn't the end of the world. They brought Demps on the field just to play cover saftey on the part of the field that Dawk should have covered so he could do what he still could so well: hit people.

And no, TJ was not going to sign in Philly for less than the Hawks gave him. Did you ever stop to think that maybe the reason he was going on a media blitz here is because we are 40 million under the cap and have a media (erm town?) that always blasts are WR's? Last year prooved that more recievers is not better. This point has been argued on this site 10000000 times in the past month. TJ does not bring added depth to this team, he isn't big, and he actually isn't physical (I too thought he was at one point, he just looks big).

To everyone who is hatin on the FO, please take a step back and compare our team to the Cowboys. The fact that we have young budding stars to get excited about, and 2 first round picks in this years draft is something not every team can say. This isn't the birds's apocalypse. There are going to be new players that define the Eagles and the city. And when they leave, you will be sad, just like you are about Dawk. It really is the cycle of life when you think about it.
