Weird, added a ton of big name, high dollar free agents that probably wont mesh well together but your O-line still stinks... sounds familiar - Times are changing around 'Skins Country my friendsThe Eagles have made a lot of good moves this offseason. How could you not like their talent?
Yet I still see the Saints and Packers as the NFC favorites because their teams look more complete and they have better continuity. There are plenty of questions about Phillyís defense and its new defensive coordinator.
And if there is a weakness of this squad, it remains on the offensive live. Training camp hasnít helped matters.
Mike Vick has no idea who will be protecting his blindside this year.
ďI canít tell you that right now. Why you asking me tough questions like that? Make it easy for me. Iím ready to go home,Ē Vick said Wednesday via Rich Hoffman of the Philadelphia Daily News, drawing laughter.
Last yearís right tackle Winston Justice hasnít practiced because of a knee injury. His backup Ryan Harris, picked up from Denver, is out with a back injury. Just like he was for much of his time in Denver.
King Dunlap will start the teamís next preseason game, which doesnít make Eagles fans feel great. Heíll start next to rookie guard Danny Watkins, who has shown promise but also looked like a rookie at times in camp. At center, the starter also remains uncertain. Rookie Jason Kelce is battling with Jamaal Jackson.
Put all this uncertainty against the backdrop of a shortened offseason and a new offensive line coach (Howard Mudd) who is installing a vastly different blocking scheme. Some problems are to be expected. Oh, and the old offensive line coach is now the defensive coordinator.
