Tribute to Westbrook

So the harsh reality has finally come into the light. Brian Westbrook is no longer a Philadelphia Eagle. To be honest this hurts alot more that I originally thought that it would, it isn't easy seeing a legend in green playing for another team... So I'd like to reflect on Westbrook's career


To begin with I'd like to reflect on the one and only time I've seen Westbrook play in person. It was October 22, 2006, in Tampa, FL. The game really seemed to be ran by Westy, he had big plays everywhere and although they lost I still remember the dump off pass he took to the endzone, it was quite spectacular...

 

 

I also would like to include some of Westy's highlights from over the years(thanks to youtube)

And this is a video of Westbrook's rise to fame:

And finally one of my favorite moments as a Fan of this great team, it wasnt a touchdown, it wasnt a monster play, infact it was Westy taking a knee on the 1 yard line against Dallas to seal the win. It was an unselfish act and one that I will remember each time someone tries to rip on Westbrook...

I'd also like to put this up to help lighten the mood of those who are saddened by the ending of the Brian Westbrook era..
