Last year, Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was primarily the lone casualty regarding injuries, as Philly kept the injury bug at bay for most of the 2013 season. I’m not as confident that will be repeated. In the spirit of competition, bring it on! I am saddened to see any player go down, yet am eager to see how well this team adapts to adversity, including injuries, such as when Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper stepped up after Maclin prematurely stepped down. I want to see who we will draft, and bring in to compete for a spot on the roster. I want to see Philly go toe-to-toe with the very best the NFL has to offer. Most importantly – I want to see them win. Not just win but grab the NFL by the face and say, “Let’s go. We are the team to beat in the NFC.” I don’t want to hear the Eagles say this, but I want to see it by how they play on the field, and conduct themselves off field. I am glad we have who we have on our schedule. I did not cringe at any name that popped up, and in fact, I already began win/loss predicting. Until the time comes, one can only speculate.
Will the Philadelphia Eagles stifle the scrambling Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton? Will Nick Foles show Luck and Rogers that there is one more quarterback who can win big and put up numbers like them? Will the Eagles eradicate the current perception that the 49ers are the NFC’s only Super Bowl contenders behind Seattle? Are they going to squash the Cardinals, who many mistakenly believed was more talented? Will the Legion of Boom collapse right before our very eyes, as they are picked apart while Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson struggles to manage the game? There are so many questions, but yet so much time, and thus so little answers. We’ll find out when we find out, but in the meantime, what is your premature speculation? Let us hear your thoughts.
