Blogs are great for making predictions. So I predict the Eagles will not make sufficient free-agent signings to satisfy the average but skeptical Philly fan like me!
So far, I am right - they just signed a back-up tight end. Big Whoop!!?? I am not an LJ Smith fan - he will never be a Top Ten player (at his position) so they should have made a bigtime upgrade but they did not. Joe Banner, the Eagles salary cap genius and and former fantasy football geek is an idiot.
The Eagles missed out on the best free agent at center, Le Charles Bentley. And news reports seem to indicate the Eagles were blowing smoke about signing Bentley.
And what the hell kind of name is that for a football player?? Le Charles?? IMHO, he would not have fit in with grey-collar Eagles fans. But damn Bentley looked huge in the picture of him signing with the Browns. Usually, a player looks a little small in his jersey without shoulder pads but Bentley looked like he was actually stretching the jersey and did not need the pads to do so.
Last word- the Eagles missed their Super Bowl window of opportunity and unfortunatelly those only come around every 20 or 30 years.
