Now i know there aren't many Iggles fans on this site BUT i kno there are some so"

ATTENTION EAGLES FANS I AM CALLING YOU OUT. IAM TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT THE PATRIOTS PERFECT SEASON AND I WANT SOME PHILLY ACTION...IF YOU ARE OUT THERE ACCEPT MY CHALLENGE AND TELL ME WHO YOU THINK IS THE MOST DESERVING TO BE THE NEXT STAR OF THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES!!!!!!!!!!

Now remember the Eagles have the 19th pick in the draft so please look at some draft boards and pick your poison acceptably...

Now with the Eagles trouble at wide reciever they've had for a while now i believe Limas Sweed the tall stocky reciever is perfect to fill the open reciever spot on our team... I believe he can have the same success Plaxico has had being so tall.

So please...theres another Eagles fan out there waiting to hear your sorrow...

i am not an eagles fan but i do love football... the guy the eagles should pick is somebody to replace the aging mcnabb.... somebody explosive and fast like he was.... the only person i can think of is dennis dixon

First of all thank you for excepting and good luck

Now about Donavan McNabb...McNabb is fine...The reason he had a shaky year was because of his Torn ACL...it usually takes a player 2 years to get 100%...and McNabb came back at 10 months out of surgury...and played at 85 most of the year...Towards the end of the year he played SOLID old McNabb football...a preview to 08...if the Eagles don't make the horrid mistake of getting rid of him...second...to draft a QB in the first round isn't right in the Eagles case...just last year we Drafted Kevin Kolb...so that would be a wasted draft pick to make Kolb the QB of the future and then draft Dixon...second i don't believe Dixon is even going into the draft so looking for him is...a waste of time...and if he becomes a late draftee he would be 3rd-6th round material...so picking him first is illogical and a waste of a pick...

Now why Limas Sweed the all pro Wide Out from Texas would be a great addition to the Eagles...the Eagles need a potential BIG play reciever...the reson McNabb had a tough year was because his recievers counldn't get open and that lead the pocket to collapse and McNabb to be pressured...Sweed is pretty big reciever who i believe can have success similiar to the success Plaxico Burress has had going up over Safteys to get hail marys...Also this kind of guy is exactly what the Eagles are looking for...The Eagles run an explosive offense that can score at any time...what better guy to draft than a big buy like Limas Sweed who can go over safteys for big chunks of yards and TDs...
All the more reason Limis is the best choice for the Eagles...

you have to admit... its not the first season that he hasnt finish these past couple of seasons. kolb isnt really a good explosive qb either..... he wont be able to run the offense like mcnabb used to.... there will be plenty of good talent this draft at reciever too.... we have manninham coming outta michigan for one... he would also have a good pick there

Now injuries are part of the game...Yes, McNabb has gotten injured but when he's healthy he is one of the best QBs in the league...and saying Kolb isnt an explosive QB isn't fair to Kolb...the only action he saw was in preseason games so to say he isn't explosive isn't fair for him

I assume you will now argue that Mnningham is the best choice for the Eagles so you have one more round to argue that...I will still stand that Limas Sweeds tallness, and good hands makes him the best choice for the Eagles to add a playmaker to there offense at the Wide Reciever position...

manningham has more speed to get open. he also has good size and great hands. to pass him up is like the texans passing on reggie bush... it would be kinda bad.... he can contribute more as a reciever and a specialist as well.
