“To excel is to know your greatest strengths and passions, and to emphasize them while honestly admitting and managing your weaknesses.”

Robert Cooper is the fine man who uttered the above phrase. I’d like to come across as philosophical and tell you that I was able to pull that quote from the depths of my mind after reading one of Cooper’s long-winded books on emotional intelligence, but that’s why we have Google. 

We all know that this team has strengths. It’s also fun to exalt upon them and glorify them as legitimate reasons as to why the Eagles are going to walk off the field of Lucas Oil Stadium seven and a half months from now with the Lombardi Trophy in their hands. The versatility of Michael Vick, the *insert synonym for insanely, insanely fast* speed of DeSean Jackson, and the growth of running back LeSean McCoy are all formidable strengths of this team.

However, I think it’s only right that at the same time, we recognize and try to dive into what exactly the weaknesses of this team are going into the 2011 season. Let’s not fool ourselves, all 32 teams in this league have their holes and it’s no different with the Eagles.
