Laurie/Banner/Reid strike again. "Gold standard" my foot. Bargin basement/ Clearance rack "standard" is more like it. What have they done that tells the Eagle fans that they are COMMITTED to winning a Super Bowl? Nothing, they are committed to being competitive and making money.

How is this move them "making money"? They let go a productive and underpaid lineman go and got a much higher-priced quality linebacker in a need area. Who else shoud they have gotten A D from Baltimore, who played in a 3-4? Trade for Lance Briggs? If healthy, Takeo is an absolute upgrade at our weakest position and he steps in as a starter. How could this have gone any better for the Eagles?

The Eagles have obviously brainwashed you into thinking that being competitive is good enough. The New England Patriots decided that they needed a linebacker to get to the Super Bowl. They then got the BEST linebacker on the free agent market.
I'm afraid the Pats will still be playing in the post season when the Eagles are at home licking their wounds in the weaker NFC.

The Patriots are on the down. They have went away from there plans. They were like the Eagles and didn't pay huge contracts on anybody, on they are which will start separating the locker room. The older players will went to be paid more.
