The Linc - Brian Westbrook has a few things to prove

Westbrook Fresh, Excited for Week 1
"I think I’ve worked very hard to get to this point, and I want to prove to myself that, ‘You can still play. You can still do it. You can still make people miss. You can still make long runs and you can still have an impact on the game,’" Westbrook said. "I’ve prepared myself to be at that point right now. I’ve done everything I can to be that type of player, and now it’s just having the opportunity to go out there and do it, and that’s what I’m waiting for." - Philly Sports & Minutiae: Reid's Eagles Historically Getting The Better Of Fox's Panthers
What's the first game that comes to mind when you think of the Carolina Panthers? For 99% of you, it's one of the most painful losses in the Andy Reid era, a 14-3 loss at home in the 2003 NFC Championship.

CONTRARY to some opinions, I am not always down on the prospects for an Eagles season.

Enough already: Give Vick a second chance | Philadelphia Inquirer | 09/09/2009
Maybe 11 weeks away from work has made me soft, but I don't see why everyone is dissecting every word Michael Vick says. Is he sorry, really sorry, he executed those dogs, people want to know, and if he is, why isn't he communicating that better?
