DESPITE what you read in posts from the DeSean Jackson groupie, EasyEagles; this year's game against the Cardinals will be different not because of one man, but because the EAGLES are a better team than they were last year.

Football is a team sport, featuring the largest game day roster in all of professional sports, WORLDWIDE. It features more specialists, and a greater variety of positions than any sport on God's Earth. The reason is because it is NECESSARY. 

Too often people (often those LEAST in the know), want to focus and fixate on ONE PERSON as the reason games are won and lost. In the heat of a loss or the heady afterglow of a win, it's very easy to get caught up in this. I will admit to doing this myself. However when that moment has given way to other subsequent moments, our ability as MEN to think and to reason should hold sway. But it is clear that some men, EasyEagles in specific in this case, do not possess that faculty to the same degree as most of us. 

Here are the facts. Our Defense is VASTLY improved. There are no contract debates on-going. The owner has lit a fire under the coach and therefore his entire staff. So we are focused, and focusing sharper still.

We are better because WE are better. Not He, or Him, or any one man.

WE. As a collective. As a team.

And as I said when it was being widely mocked by a fool who's knowledge has already been proven lesser than my own, even THIS early in the year: We started poorly but we have gotten better and will continue to GET BETTER. Not "because Birdflipper said so", but because this is how you build, and some men understand this sport while some others can merely watch without comprehending it or it's nuances. 

The EAGLES will be better, because the EAGLES will be better.

  • This article isn't about the Arizona game, but the season as a whole. Even if we lose today, it doesn't change the EAGLES still being a work in progress, and already clearly better defensively. At no point could we rely on our defense to keep us in games last year. This year we are 2-0 because of them already.

    Not because of Kendricks, not because of Ryans, but because they are as a unit playing as a team.
  • but what might happen if the eagles lose???? fans wanting the head of the head coach???? even though???? this is whats wrong with sports at any level.....IM sure as Im writing here??? that if??? the university Of Oregon football team loses??? some might want head coach Chip kellys head????
  • If the EAGLES lose we'll cheer on Andy and the team, and play the giants next week.

    Same thing we'd do if we win.
  • Wow nobody wrote the Eagles are better this season because of Jackson (although the offense is better because he's still here). I wrote this season Arizona game will be different, because Jackson will play. My any praise of Jackson really works you up huh?
  • Praising Jackson isn't the issue. After an offseason of saying that you are a fan of the team and not loyal to any one player, you put together a post lauding ONE PLAYER and eschewing the TEAM'S improvement.

    The Arizona game will be different because the overall team is better. Not acknowledging the contributions of those who are ACTUALLY carrying this team right now, is DOWNRIGHT DISRESPECTFUL.
  • Calm down Captain Coop Troop. It's only disrespectful, because YOU HATE THE GUY. I'm not belittling anybody but the 4th string soon to be 5th string receiver you worship. Funny you didn't have that response when I praised Nnamdi and DRC too. The bottom line is you blew it out of proportion, because you hate Jackson. Let it go Captain Coop Troop. Let it go.
  • I won't repeat what I've said so many times.

    And I didn't have that response when you praised Nnamdi and DRC, because you finally came around to what I've been saying about Asomugha. Why argue with you when all you did was agree? Nice when guys doing the heavy lifting get some credit.
  • Well Nnamdi is really making it hard for me to continue to back him. To be honest I just want to move on from this week. To many people to point fingers at. Too few guys stepped up. On to the Giants.
  • Asomugha may only give up a few plays but they seem to be huge.

  • Now see there, we finally can agree on something Flipflopper, not He or Him or just one individual but collectively as a team the Eagles suck. Opposing teams best chances to score first is to award the Eagles offense the ball if they win the coin toss.
