Yeah.. That seems to be the general question popping up in every Eagles' Fans mind right now. I have a hard time sleeping thinking about what is coming next. Some of the questions people may be asking right now are...
What are we going to do with the linebacker area? Yes we have had are ups and downs there due to bad play, injuries, speed was a factor also. Stewart Bradley tearing his ACL in training camp really hurt us down the stretch. We used a couple of different people at MLB this year including Omar Gaither, Jeremiah Trotter, Chris Gocong, just to name a few. Grant it dont take anything away from Trotter hes the leader we needed in the locker room since B-Dawk left town but his speed is just not the same as it was in the glory days. Stewart Bradleys speed and strength were defintly missed this year and we can look forward to it this year.
Is Quintin Mikell A true Safety? No, but he can be. Reason i say this is for a safety not to be able to tackle as effectively as he should be needs to work on that this offseason. Stat wise he was not that bad on paper (92 tackles 70 solo 2 picks) but if you are a fan and watch him on the field sometimes hes not playing up to his ability. I honestly believe that he was a bigger factor with Dawkins running around with him back there. Work on the tackling issue (which just is not his fault may i add) and he will be fine.
Now the one that has been discussed over and over again by Eagles fans EVERYWHERE!
What to do with #5? People can say what they want but thats why god gave us the choice to state our opinions but i believe McNabb give us the best chance to win. Yes he throws to the ground alot, over recievers heads, fumbles, but so do other QBS. I always use John Elway in this argument because i believe its somewhat similiar situation. People say well 5 NFC championship games and one superbowl is not good enough because we have only won one NFC championship game. Elway took his team to 5 superbowls and it took him approx 14 years to win his first one. Now you will say well he took them to 5 superbowls not 1? Whats the difference? If you cant win the superbowl whats the point of making it? Every Eagles fan wants to get over that hump and win a superbowl and im sure the Bronco fans wanted that also but they waited 14 years or so for that to happen with alot of "Maybe Next Year phrases like we tend to use alot here. I guess my point is give him the protection in the pocket he needs and you know he can be a top 5 QB. I have faith in our QB and you should to. Just remember what if the fans in Denver kicked elway out of town for not winning a superbowl?
