Gotta have someone to blame right? 12-4, I was an idiot and believed the hype. Super Bowl bound, I was an idiot and believed the hype. Dr. Z is an idiot. My common sense has now returned.
Let's see last year the Eagles
finished 8-8 and in the NFC East basement.
In the off-season they bid against themselves for a player at a position they were already strong at (Asante Samuel). They brought in a stud pass rusher who now isn't even good enough to get on the field (Clemons). They brought in a RB who also can't get on the field (Booker). They anointed a FB who can't block (Hunt).
L.J. might as well be hurt again as his production is zip. Akers still can't hit the long one. WRs still can't catch (get Greg Lewis the hell off the team!). Reid still can't manage the clock or make in-game adjustments. OK, they managed to get lucky on their second 2nd round draft pick.
So in short, we are looking at the same team as last year. Is anyone really shocked that the Eagles are 2-3 and again in the basement of the NFC East. You shouldn't be.
Here's to a long playoff run by the Phillies. Oh yea, David Akers, you SUCK!
