It's always nice to read some optimism on a Monday morning. SI.com's Don banks counts the Eagles as one of his 5 teams that improved themselves.
Philly's pass rush got a boost with the signing of ex-Raider defensive end Chris Clemons, who was one of the more underrated talents in free agency. I also like the release of underachieving defensive end Jevon Kearse -- addition by subtraction -- and veteran linebacker Takeo Spikes, who is the kiss of death for any team's playoff hopes (10 years in the NFL without a postseason trip). The Eagles young linebacking corps of Omar Gaither, Stewart Bradley and Chris Gocong is now set.
He also joins the chorus of those that feel the Eagles are still lacking a #1 WR, but feels the team has improved themselves from 8-8 to 11-5...
While we're on the subject of national media Eagles love... Peter King loves the Klecko signing.
