I for one am not an Iggle hater. I generally pull for them in the NFC because they are a Pa team. I was a fan of Carmichael in HS. I'm not a fan of Vick, however and not so crazy about that whack job, Young. Kind of bad when Kolb looks liek a better option.
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.
When players don't play and coaches argue in public / during a game / right on the sidelines and the whole team still thinks it's doing good then the coach is not effective and the whole lot has lost touch with reality. Oh wait, maybe it's only a matter of Andy doing a better job and putting the players in a better position?
disappointment. thats just it. so much hype and none of it came together for them. some teams handled hte lockout really well and kept their basic identity intact (ie. packers). some teams let it all get the best of them like the eagles. they are fixable though and I think it stupid to think this much talent and athleticism can't be sucessful in the nfl just bc it was put together in free agency. a new coach and an offseason together will do this team good.
