These Two Guys Have The Right Kind Of Attitudes.

Posted July 10, 2013

I've just recent read an article about how Lane Johnson doesn't want to hold out, and how he wants to be out there with his teammates once training starts. On a side note the Eagles need to get their acts together here considering the guy drafted right after him is already signed. Just get it done people! Anyways this is the type of attitude I would like to hear from the rest of our team. Most particularly the leaders. Instead we are hearing about players selfishly crying about reps in OTAs, we are hearing about semi-star receivers complain about new rules. We are viewing on this site people crying about the Eagles letting go of a guy who wanted to eat lunch in his car away from the team. Clearly Lane is a young man who gets it. I just hope the other guys who are being so selfish get shipped out or shape up before the corrupt this young man with their inflated egos and erratic play. Of course one of these inflated egos has another one of these young guns with the right attitude waiting in the wings. Matt Barkley is a 4th round draft pick. We all know this, but he's not lacking confidence in himself. He is coming to camp believing that he has a shot to win the starting job, and why shouldn't he? He's right to say that Chip Kelly "chose me" out of all the rest of the quarterbacks. We have all seen the spoiled one the past two preseasons... well sort of seen him. In 2011 Vick looked lost all preseason and his confusion carried right into the regular season to the point the Eagles never won a game against a team with a winning record with him under center. 2012 preseason Vick bowed out early due to an injury, and come the start of the season was he rusty! We all know how that turned out. Well THIS preseason Vick thankfully doesn't have the luxury to simply bow out. He's going to have to earn it, but if Mr. Peanut Brittle can't stay healthy guess who is going to get all of those first team reps he was complaining about sharing? That's right Matt Barkley a guy who today would be the best quarterback on the Raiders roster. Of course so would Dixon or Kinne. But enough about those Raider bums, this about how these two young guys get it. These two guys clearly still have a winning attitude. Hopefully they can follow their coach and get some of these older guys in step. You can't win with a losing mentality, nor can you win coddling a losing mentality. Even semi-pro athletes know that.... Well most of them anyways.
