Any failures or disappointments from 2011 seem to be forgotten by Philadelphia Eagles fans. With a really positive and productive offseason, morale hasn’t been this high in years.
Fan excitement stems from their favorite players being taken care of by management, the acquisition of a proven middle linebacker and a draft that actually made sense to the masses.
In all the excitement for the improvements a few minor details seem to have gotten lost. By minor details I mean a few players who aren’t necessarily generating an hype in newspapers or on talk radio.
Don’t get me wrong, after the overselling of this team last year I don’t mind less noise. With that said, there are three players ready to make an impact that may be worth talking about.
The first is tight end Brent Celek. It’s not that people don’t value him or respect him as a player, because they do. The problem is that he isn’t being recognized for how good a season he actually turned in last year.
