Re: The Egglets Are.......
Big free agency splashes do not usually equate to success. Look at Pittsburgh and New England. Neither will go out to sign the biggest name free agents. They build in the draft, and fill the rest of the roster with mid tier free agents who fit the system perfectly. Ryan Clark and James Farrior are excellent examples of that. The two teams also do a good job of holding onto their own players. But the critical thing is to have a good system in place that allows average player to succeed, which Philly does not have. Asomonga(sic) is a great guy in man coverage, but the first thing they do is stick him into zone.
We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
