With the acquisitions of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha to go along with Asante Samuel, the Philadelphia Eagles' secondary might be the most talented in the NFL in a long time.

The major questions: Can they co-exist? Will egos get in the way? Who's really gonna play the nickel position?

The three may give the right answers right now. But only time will tell if they can put their skills together and propel the Eagles to a title.

With Asante's tremendous ballhawk skills, Asomugha's lock down coverage and the play-making ability of Rodgers-Cromartie, the Eagles defense will be feared.

Even if Samuel leaves, prepare for a possibly special season for the Eagles.
