The Same is Good, Right?
Maybe I've finally fallen prey to the Lurie and Banner rhetoric, but I honestly believe you only need a few more pieces to again be a contender next season. Winning it all, well after the Cardinals game I am no longer guaranteeing anything!

The Cardinals' game was an admiration. The Eagles Defense is dangerously good. You don't get a #3 ranking if you aren't. They had a bad game, be it, at the worst possible time.

My one addition (and it's a BIG one) would be Julius Peppers. The man is an UFA and the latest reports have him wanting out of Carolina. He is still young, still dominant, and would allow the Eagles to generate consistent pressure without the blitz (something that was missing in the playoffs).

The offense, well unless all you McNabb haters can give me a better alternative, #5 is back under center. The upgrades are needed along the OL and at RB. For the OL I say bring back Runyan on a short-term deal, move Todd Heremans out to tackle, and your two guards are Andrews and Cole. I am sorry, with the 21st and 28th picks in this years draft you aren't going to find a starting caliber tackle.

At running back, the team needs a big, YOUNG back to compliment B-West (say goodbye Buck). This can be had with one of their two 1st round picks. From the group of Georgia’s Knowshon Moreno, Ohio State’s Chris Wells, and Pitt’s LeSean McCoy, someone has to be available.

Pedal to the metal...right?!?
