January 30, 2014


TRUE. 34% is not by any means overwhelming, but on a poll that the Eagles put up, they ask what has to be done to improve the Defense; and 34% of those who voted (the leading vote getter) says we need a standout DB.

This is a weird question to ask. It would be a weird question for one fan to ask another given that the need is so obvious. It's even stranger coming from the group charged with making these decisions.

Given GM Howie Roseman's public lamenting of his failure to replace Brian Dawkins thus far, I would've assumed that FS would be the teams top priority this offseason. But this question has me a little spooked that they might do that whole "Best Athlete Available" crap again, instead of filling a GLARING hole.

I hope that Roseman listens to that poll. 

I also hope that DB continues to be the leading vote getter.
