Per Philly.com's Eagletarian blog, on the topic of Juan Castillo's claim that Eagles linebackers will be ready to win the superbowl:
That quote yesterday where Juan Castillo said his young linebackers "will be ready to win the Super Bowl" has gotten a lot of play, here and elsewhere. Problem is, I just listened to the tape again, and I'm not sure that's exactly what Castillo said, or at least, what he meant to say.
Here's the way the Eagles' transcript punctuates Castillo's remarks: “The linebackers will be ready to win the Super Bowl. Remember, it takes 16 weeks, and then really whoever is playing their best during the playoffs. So when you look at it there’s time to develop."
But on the tape, here is what I hear: "The linebackers will be ready. To win the Super Bowl, remember, it takes 16 weeks, and then, really, whoever is playing their best during the playoffs. So when you look at it, there's time to develop."
This quote, like other pro eagle headings on PFT, has stirred up the haters. Like moths to a light bulb they come (or dead ballplayers to a cornfield in Iowa?).
In this VY fueled off season of microscopic scrutiny and whining, I'm @super excited@ about this transcript error.
Not that I, or any of us, let this kind of thing get to my head...
