Eagles in the salary cap playoffs with Jacksonville, KC & Bungles. Ozzie wins.

Posted April 11, 2013

Once again the Ravens pull down another free agent showing their commitment to continue being a great team.  The Eagles , on the other hand , have done some touch ups that have saved them money but havent made themselves any better than last season.   This is the tale of two owners and teams that operate much differently.  The Ravens are financially committed and emotionally invested.  While the Eagles arent "all in" despite the tearful cries of Jeff Lurie and the " I feel your pain" speech.   Now the GMs of the Eagles and Ravens are completely different.  In Balto the Ravens have argueably the best GM in football in Ozzie Newsome while the Eagles have a whiney  unproven bean counter in Howie.  Doesnt look real impressive.   Once again the whole season hinges on Vick putting his life on the line to try to make the Eagles win .  But with the changes made I suspect it will be even harder for Vick to succeed.   I think a repeat of last year may occur.   It all rests on Vicks shoulders.  As usual and like Mcnabb he has not been given anything substatial to work with.
