What’s that saying? There’s something we’ve heard from time to time about ‘game recognizing game’. The Philadelphia Eagles aren’t quite where we’d like them to be. No one’s satisfied with first-round exits after making the postseason, but things could be a lot worse. You have to feel better about this team after adding Haason Reddick too.
This isn’t the Detroit Lions or the Houston Texans we’re talking about. Philly has a healthy mix of accomplished veterans who can still ball (Jason Kelce and Darius Slay for instance). They also have some young budding stars (DeVonta Smith and Landon Dickerson). The Birds have some pieces, but they aren’t ready to contend for a Super Bowl.
The question is how do they transition from being a perennial middle-of-the-pack club to becoming a factor in the NFC year after year? Well, adding guys like Reddick help. He’s come home, and we have yet to find one complaint about the signing.
Haason Reddick meets his Eagles teammates.
The Eagle has landed! Get it? The Eagle has landed? Okay, maybe that was a tad corny, but we’re rocking with it.
Say what you will about where the team is or isn’t, but here’s something you’ll never hear. No one has ever said that the Eagles’ social media team doesn’t get it done. They’re the best in the NFL.
On the second day of the new league year, Haason Reddick arrived at the NovaCare Complex and met his Eagles teammates. As you’d expect, we’ve been getting some pretty cool updates via the Twitter and Facebook pages. Take a look:
That brotherly love is in the air. Haason Riddick is already bonding with his Eagles teammates. Everyone’s smiling, including us.
Yes friends, game still recognizes game. This makes this team and organization better, especially guys like Jordan Mailata and Lane Johnson as they’ll hone their skills versus their new teammate in practice.
This also helps what was, at times, an ailing pass rush. Philadelphia still has work to do. It isn’t time to book those Super Bowl tickets yet, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. It should be fun to see what else the team’s brass has in mind to improve upon the foundation they laid last year.
