How 'bout them Birds?
We are 10-1 and we mind as well be 6-5 when you talk to Eagles fans about our record. Its sad, really. Philly fans have been let down so many times over the years, and most people are happy but not overly excited.
We have a team that hasn't let up a TD in 2 games, against two of our dreaded NFC rivals. We have a team that outscored both of those teams with double digit wins. Go to the Eagles message board and see what the posts talk about. Here are a few common ones:
"Pinkston Sucks" - Pinky will always suck in the minds of fans until the day comes that he makes a clutch play. That "aligator arm" catch he shied away from against the Giants isn't going to endear him to anyone anytime soon. Oh, for the record, Pinky and I have nearly the same height (6'4) and weight (200) - I knew I could have started for the Eagles.
"Our Run Defense Sucks" - Welcome back, Trotter. I think we all know our linebacker situation will be addressed in the 2005 NFL Draft. Simoneau was a weakside linebacker thrust into the role of middle linebacker and everyone in Philly villified him for not being a MLB. Give the guy a break - I think he did the best he could. I don't think he sucks, but Trotter is a huge upgrade to our run defense in the middle. I'm still unhappy that he left us for the Redskins - I want Trotter and Corey Simon locked into a room with each other and let Jerimiah knock some sense into him.
"Donovan sucks" - I happen to have some thoughts here that you may not like.
