Donovan McNabb was on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, with Dr. Z picking the Eagles to make it to the Super Bowl and lose to the Patriots. I'm going to have to agree with the guy on them making it to the Super Bowl, but they will probably beat the Patriots this year. I don't see how they can't. Donovan is healthy this year and is going to have a monster year. If you don't believe me, then you are a douchebag.
They have one of the top three running backs in football. DeSean Jackson looks like he is going to be a really, really, really, really good football player. He will also be returning punts which will be a slight upgrade over Reno Mahe, and by slight I mean enormous.
L.J. Smith is healthy as well and playing for a contract. The offensive line has been together for about 10 years now it seems. Apparently, they have too many defensive ends and more than two solid DTs. The Eagles have a strong, young and fast linebacking corps. They probably have the best trio of cornerbacks in the league. Brian Dawkins is Brian Dawkins. And David Akers lost 20 lbs and gained a lot of muscles in his butt to kick the ball farther.
What more can you ask for? And Sav Rocca learned how to kick the ball this year, at least during the preseason. So either way, the Eagles are probably going to win the Super Bowl this year. That's all I'm saying.
Also, I hate Mets fans. They are just dumb, ignorant people. I also really do not like Italians [Ed Note: FUCK YOU!]. They are creepy and annoying. I may be mistaken but it seems like every Mets fan I have ever seen gives the appearance of an Italian person [Ed note: You mean Puerto Rican, jerk]. So, either way I guess I'm just saying that I don't like those kinds of people.
Chris Coste really should just change his last name to Clutch at this point. Also, here is a question for you. Why did Charlie Manuel pinch-hit Brett Myers for Rudy Seanez last night when he told Brett not to swing? Couldn't Rudy have done the same exact thing and possibly been used for another few batters in the next inning if it occurred? Did they really need to use a pinch hitter to just stand there like an idiot? That seemed dumb. Don't get me wrong, Charlie did good last night. The whole Ruiz at 3b for an inning for the pinch hitter was brilliant. So good job last night Charlie.
