Two Preseason weeks down with a win and a loss. We have seen our starters play essentially three quarters of football so far, the coaches holding back their tricks and some shuffling in the lineup. Our first team Offense has yet to score a touchdown, and we have seen plenty of rust as we do every year by this time. The third game is only a few days away, and we will see more of the starters for most of the game. Shortly after, the team gets cut to 75 players.
The team is definitely faster, the Offense is having struggles as we would expect from a revamped roster and new leader, the Defense looks better than anticipated and now we have two rookies in starting positions (Brandon Graham and Nate Allen). Joselio Hansen is probably on the bubble, and we somehow get back on the topic of Donovan McNabb again.
We read off an email from Dennis in Gettysburg, then address the rumors brewing about the Vikings looking for a trade with a few teams, including the Eagles. The last thing we talked about was the potential for an 18-game season next year, and some of the ramifications that comes with that.
