At the beginning of this off-season, I was excited; most of the Eagles needs could be filled with excellent veteran help. Julius Peppers, Antrel Rolle, Aaron Kampman, and others. But the Eagles did not budge. As my complaints persisted with comments of such
C'mon BANNER lets go get us some wins. Leave a comment on who the Eagles will sign in free agency with whats left.
While Banner made a good move signing Fullback Leonard Weaver to a 3 year 11 mil deal; he let some talented players slip by in some our neediest positions.
Although it is a uncapped year; the Eagles continue to do what they usually do; let most of the big names go by while focusing on the drafts to help the Eagles. But why? Why does it matter if you invest in a seasoned player with some issues that will ultimately help your club right now?
But it makes it 10 times harder when we can't continue some of the things that may have really worked for us a season ago. That's why I was bitching earlier this month about adding several older pieces to win now instead of starting new and grooming rookies. Hopefully we can continue some the Eagles explosiveness of the offense last year and continue it next to get the city of Philadelphia and its fans a Superbowl. McNabb and Co. for 2010!
I WANNA WIN NOW. And to fix the situation is to gain experience. Eff age, were gonna win anyway and now.
But in the last week, the Banner and Reid has said STFU and signed and traded for veteran help and addressing some of our major needs! The signing of Marlin Jackson and potential Mike Bell; the signing of Jackson may solve our secondary woes for good and Bell adds explosiveness to a back committee and help to the second coming of LeSean McCoy. We also traded for upcoming LDE Darryl Tapp. The kid is a mini Cole and has a lot of good football coming at the prime age of 25.
These addtions leave us with one more hole on our defense, OLB. Andy, please draft one in the first, just one at least in the draft. I like Akeem Jordan and Stewart Bradley for our LB corps, so please behind all the fat deep deep down there in your heart, draft a LB. Anyone, just draft one.
