Well, the long wait is almost over! In just a few days, all of Philadelphia will be watching their team on Sunday afternoon face off against the St. Louis Rams and begin their quest once more for the Vince Lombardi trophy.
Every year has appeared to be the year, but this year somehow feels different. With a new quarterback at the helm, Michael Vick, along with new star additions to the team in the form of Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Jason Babin and Cullen Jenkins just to name a few, it would almost appear as if the Eagles are destined to be dangerous in 2011.
The season opener for the birds against the St. Louis Rams may appear to be a cakewalk, but don't be fooled. While the Eagles are clearly the superior team, the Rams do have the capability to pull of an upset if Philadelphia does not bring its A-game on Sunday.
