    You're talking about raw rookie Winston Justice giving up a dozen sacks against the Giants? Yes, not giving him some help was criminal. That's the kind of stuff that leaves me scratching my head. Trial by fire is one thing. Leaving a kid to get burnt to cinders is another thing entirely. To Winston's credit, he learned and grew from that experience. Not sure that Andy did, though.

    We both already know that the "boys" will have their best performance during training camp. The Eagles will take the NFC East AGAIN if they can stay reasonably healthy.

    Good luck to the Eagles this year. Even though they'll lose out to the Boys, you still have a shot at a wild card

    Yeah, Winston Justice...thanks for the reminder, I'd forgotten his name.

    Joe Banner certainly agrees with you - 'Best roster in the league?' I wait with bated breath until the day Mr Banner eats those words, which will probably occur in a playoff game when the Boys whoop on the Eagles. Just letting you know ahead of time, so you can prepare yourself by getting a Valium prescription to handle the subsequent depression

    Nothing to say. Just wanted to quote you so you didn't edit your post after the boys get beat down. How'd Dallas do in the playoffs last year?

    How the hell did I miss dogpile on the Cowboys fan??

    This is Winston Justice's Go big or go anywhere year.

    Our starting middle linebacker is done for the year, but we have a good linebacker by committee in sophomore Joe Mays and Junior Omar Gaither (who is actually battling for the weakside spot.

    Luckily we have VERY good DTs in Bunckley, Patterson, and Laws (two 1sts and a 2nd rounder)

    One of our DE's got pinched with Mary Jane so will see how that plays out.

    But, our wide receiver core is better than...well hell better than it EVER was under Andy. Our Secondary has so much quality competition even WITH Dawk and Lito gone, it should still be lights out.

    Concerns? The offensive line with new faces that haven't had time to gel together, regardless of how many probowlers there are on paper.

    So Defensive End, Offensive line...We will have at least a decent LB core so we will just have to score more points.
    And the truth shall set you free.

    I'm not sure what'll happen to the DE caught with weed. Isn't that an automatic 4 game suspension under Goodell, judging from his policy to date?

    I'll be damned...you ARE a comedian!

    Best wishes Joe, for your team, and for your new career. You're a natural with the latter.

    Cornelius Ingram, rookie tight end reinjured the same ACL that sidelined him his senior year. While not a starter, there is thought Andy would have had him contribute greatly over the middle. Second ACL, season-ending injury this camp behind starting middle linebacker Stewart Bradley.

    Yeah, we just had a kid looking good at tight end tear an ACL. It's part of the game, but you still got to feel for him.
