It’s only the Philadelphia Eagles’ second preseason game of 2009.
And it goes against just about everything I’ve said in terms of taking the preseason seriously.
But tonight’s game against the Indianapolis Colts could be a huge indicator of things to come, specifically as it relates to three key Eagles.
Yes, you can have it both ways.
See, tonight, the Eagles will be missing a lot of key players. And while Indianapolis will too, the Colts’ big guns that will be on the field will be matched up against these three Eagles to watch.
While it might be way too early to say they will “sink or swim” this season, a solid performance tonight could boost not only their stock, but management’s (and even the fans’) confidence in them as well.
