Damage Control on Vince Young’s Big Mouth

Let’s see here...

Your replacement leads your team to a division title. And over your own career, you’ve thrown 32 interceptions and 22 touchdowns. I’d say now’s not the time to demand a starting position or a trade...unless you’re Vince Young, apparently.

“Shady” Will Save the Eagles...

In Andy Reid’s offense, second-round pick LeSean “Shady” McCoy could end up being the biggest steal of the draft. He’s got great quickness and bursts of speed. With Brian Westbrook out for surgery, McCoy will have plenty of time to shine.

...Unless He Doesn’t

Will Philly really be able to recover from Westbrook’s surgery? Sure, Shady and other backs will get more reps, but that may not be good enough to fill Westbrook’s shoes.

Could Andy Reid have done better this offseason? What do you think?
