There should be no shock with this slide; the Philadelphia Eagles have made an absolute splash this offseason.
The biggest one was getting the top free agent on the market in cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha from the Oakland Raiders. He, combined with Asante Samuel, will form arguably the top cornerback duo in the NFL. Add in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from their deal with Arizona, and they definitely have the best trio in the league.
Then there was the acquisition of Vince Young, a personal favorite of mine from his college days. While I belong to the group that feels he can be an effective starter in the NFL, going to the Eagles is a pretty good fit.
With Kevin Kolb gone, Young will backup Michael Vick, another dual threat signal caller which should help Young learn the position more, and be an easier transition for the team if Vick gets hurt as Young can do some of the same things, just not as well.
Other notable moves, though not nearly as publicized has been their acquisition of two defensive linemen which should both make huge impacts in Jason Babin (pictured) and Cullen Jenkins. Both guys had very nice seasons last year, combining for 19.5 sacks and should make opposing quarterbacks very nervous.
It's uncertain as to where Jenkins will play on the D-line, as he'll be moving to the 4-3, but wherever he is, opposing teams will have to game-plan against him.
There is a growing feeling around the football world that these moves may have made the Eagles Super Bowl favorites.
As a Packer fan, I'm hesitant to agree, but they've certainly fallen into the group of contenders that have an excellent chance at hoisting the Lombardi trophy in February.
