My fellow bridge jumpers, G Cobb, WIP Radio, and eagle fans in general, your hysteria and craziness is funny. Before I continue take a deep breath and exhale slowly and wait 10 minutes so you can feel relaxed. Now please tell me wasn't free agency very slim and bare? So why the hysteria?
Blame the NFL and the Players for not coming to a new CBA agreement by March 5th. With no agreement all 32 teams and players are suffering due to their own selfish stupidity and therefore this years free agent class took a big hit. Many should have become UFA but with no agreement alot became RFA and that's ashame.
So tell me who in the world was out there? in business like sports you want to make smart, sound decisions when you invest that are going to help your team and fit into your plans. But if you don't have a plan and don't look out for your team, go ahead and make bad investments and misuse your money foolishly because in the end you suffer with no way out and no relief on the way.
Be grateful eagles fans that our team isn't like the lions or redskins unless you prefer to go back to the days of ray rhodes and rich koite.
Now to free agency Juilius Peppers: look I'm not getting into a bidding war with any team for a player who picks and chooses what plays he's going to put effort into. All players care about money and very few love football or care about winning. If peppers loved the game of football and wanted to win why didn't he go to the patriotsor eagles? Because it was all about the money and with a desperate bears team overpaying him why not take the most money? Aaron Kampman: torn ACL and @ the age of 30? No thank you. He tore his ACL in November do we really think he would've been ready to play football because many on BGN weren't very confident. The seahawks and eagles had every right to be concerned and skeptical and sure bring up Stewart Bradley and Cornelius Ingram but both are very young and have more upside then kampman at this stage of his career and age. And after the Stacy Andrews mess the eagles want to redo his contract. Antrel Rolle: The cardinals didn't want to pay him 12 million and many were saying he wasn't worth 8 million a year. I don't know why the eagles weren't interested but I do know they realize saftey is a need for this team.
No the eagles are not cheap because if they were the team would not be contenders every year. I want my eagles to win a Superbowl and the only way you do this is by building a team that can contend every year because the better you build the team the more it can contend every year, the closer you can get to winning the big prize.
The eagles have a plan and I'm confident we will see a better team come september. Remember Patience is a virtue so start having some and end the hysteria. And just take a pause for the cause. I hope we all are breathing easier now so feel better. Fly eagles fly on the road to victory, E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!
