As a loyal Eagles fan, I must admit that draft day always brings questions that I never seem to get the answers to—namely, " How are we going to improve our team and get back to the Super Bowl?" and "How are Andy and the FO going to mess it up?"

Well, Eagles fan, they finally got it right!

I know we lost the "heartbeat" of the defense in Dawk, but we have very capable players and even with the aging "Mad Scientist" Jim Johnson, we will be just as tough this year as we were last year (No. 3 total D, for all the haters).

So, with that being said," How did they get it right?" 

For starters, the Eagles chose not to mortgage their future and go after the "big WR" that so many say we needed. 

Instead, they chose to get an electric, young WR, who's 6'1", named Jeremy Maclin and decided to get "Shady" (LOL), which basically provides No.5 with more weapons for the future instead of going after a talented yet attention-starved receiver in Anquan Boldin. 

The guys in the corner office finally seem to get that in order to make things happen you have to make your quarterback happy—like Tom Brady and Randy Moss.

The Eagles didn't make any earth-shattering moves, but they did make an impact on their future, as a whole, and on the franchise.

They get a RT, LT, and a veteran CB, to circumvent the situation with Sheldon Brown, and bring in the duo of young S, who along with "Macho" Harris, will provide an interesting battle in Training Camp!

So, what's next for the Eagles?

Who knows. But one thing that we do know is that the FO and Andy finally listened to the "voice of the people!"

Now, only if they can find a way to trade Kolb for a rejuvenated Michael Vick, the Iggles will finally have their piece of the cheesesteak!

"Fly, Eagles, Fly!"
