Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it

Perhaps if George Santayana was part of the BYU curriculum, these things would not happen.  However, be it return man, fullback, tight end, we always seem to be severely lacking in a particular position.  It seems obvious to everyone but the front office that  we should bring in a veteran, but they ignore it or try to convert a player to the lacking position (Parry and Klecko to FB, Lewis as a PR, Bright to TE, etc).  For those of you who picked "TE" as the Eagles depth-lacking position du jour, give yourself a gold star. 

With all due respect to the Eagles success in the last decade, I just do not understand why we let it get this bad.  Granted, Celek and Schobel can return in a few weeks and all is well (sort of), but why have they not learned from past mistakes?  The punt return situation of 2007 is still fresh in my mind, have they forgot how quickly things can get ugly if a particular position lacks the necessary depth?

With Schobel already sidelined, and Celek now hurt, we are a few weeks away from opening day and the only active TE's are a rookie defensive end and a 235lb undrafted rookie TE who missed his entire senior season.  What if Brent's injury is a bit worse than expected, or he reaggravates it?  I thought for certain that we would bring in a veteran, however I suppose it is not a proper Eagles season unless we are woefully lacking in some position. 

Well, there's always next season to fix it :P
