INSTEAD of keeping you in suspense, I’ll start by saying
the Eagles will be better in 2017 than they were in 2016. When I say better, I’m not saying “They’ll show everyone that they’re on the right track.” I’m not saying “You’ll see that they’re poised to compete in 2018.” Nope, I’m not making any weak statements here.
I’m saying “Our record will be better than 7-9”. I’m saying “The Eagles will compete IN 2017.” I’m saying GET EXCITED DAMMIT!
We added some weapons for our young QB. We addressed depth issues on our Offensive and Defensive Lines, as well as in the Secondary. These were problem areas in 2016 and they were solidly addressed in a way that not only gave us players, but options in player style. We even added an insurance policy when we up-graded our back-up QB situation. So we are clearly a deeper team today. That part is beyond questioning.
What we haven’t addressed so far, is our lack of a top-shelf RB, or a second Starter at CB. Those positions headline the shopping list that the Eagles will be taking to the Art Museum-
-on Thursday, when the 2017 Draft opens. Given how deep this draft is at both positions, we’re all but guaranteed to get a player we need, instead of just getting a placeholder that we hope will pan out.
My regular readers know that I’m not much of a cheerleader. That having been said, I’ve got my pom-poms in hand, and my pizzazz skirt on. If you truly want to see me in that outfit, CLICK HERE.
If you didn’t see me in a skirt, you can pity those who have, and be thankful you still have your eyesight. Better still, you can celebrate by watching our Eagles compete for the division crown this season.
