The Philadelphia Eagles’ 2012 offseason has been tremendous so far. Between how they handled free agency and the NFL draft, this could turn out to be the most productive offseason since 2004 when they finally added key components (Terrell Owens and Jevon Kearse) to get the team over the NFC Championship game hump.
To paraphrase the Beach Boys here: I’m picking up good vibrations, they’re giving me the excitations, I’m picking up good vibrations!
I’m not even a Beach Boys fan, but that is the first song that pops in my head when I think about this offseason.
The 2004 offseason gave me that feeling as well because Andy Reid finally seemed to understand that we needed a wide receiver. Once we acquired Owens and signed premier free agent defensive end Kearse, Eagles fans “knew” that the 2004 season was going to be great.
Like 2004 with wide receivers, maybe 2012 is the year of Reid’s epiphany with the linebacker position (Demeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks).
