Our old friend Sal Pal published a feature today on ESPN on Andy Reid and the added pressures he now faces as the Eagles transition from the days of Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook to the newer, younger Eagles. While I don't want to pay much attention to his overall message (personally, I feel that any coach of the Philadelphia Eagles faces enormous pressure no matter what the circumstances), I'd prefer to zero in on one particular quote in his piece:
Assessing his rebuilt roster, Reid called it "a great challenge." What might be more challenging is convincing his championship-starved fan base that this roster overhaul can work. In Philadelphia, with McNabb now playing for the division-rival Washington Redskins, and so much inexperience wearing midnight green this season, there is little love of the unknown created by Reid.
More like fear.
I can only speak for myself when I say that I vehemently disagree that I 'fear' the direction this team has taken this offseason. But again, that's just me, and please don't let me sway your opinion. So I'm curious... Sal Paolantonio is a national writer who is based in Philadelphia - Do you think he is accurately representing your state of mind as a Philadelphia Eagles fan to the national audience?
