Players who aren't what we thought they were...



Dimitri Patterson-A couple weeks ago I thought the Eagles had a gem. Bigger and more physical than Ellis Hobbs I thought he was the real deal. Then teams saw game tape on him and we now realize why he was the 3rd or 4th string for 5 years.

Desean Jackson -Playmaker for sure.  But for every spectacular game/play he has he has just as many total disappearances. Not just for a few plays but for a entire game. If he had a more reserved personality like Maclin he wouldn't get all the good press he does.  Similar to the old Mcnabb in the sense that he will make the sportscenter highlight reel every monday but you never get to see how teams easily  shut him out of games and how he takes plays off. 

Brent Celek- Yes he has stayed into block but he has wayyy too many drops and is not even half of what he was in the passing game last year. 

Juqua Parker--on fire in the beginning of the year, since then not a whole lot. Same story different year. Another reason why they felt the need to draft Graham. 

Brandon Graham-jury is still out but to be honest he hasn't done much. Great pre-season, shitty regular season  Ill give him a semi-pass because hes a rookie but the 13th pick of the draft should have given more. 

Mike Mcglynn: Another one we thought would be a find--but game tape has exposed him as well. 

Chad Hall: Looked like a Dave Meggett type in training camp----after seeing him for a few games I cant help but  wonder why exactly he is on this team.

Eagles we let get away...

Jason Babin- this deserves mention. The guy has 12 sacks I think and is a beast. A shame the coaches couldn't get that out of him here.  Then we wouldn't have had to waste a pick on a DE.
