Eagles Must Fix Defense, Not QB Situation

ESPN's Matt Mosley writes that too much attention has been paid to the Philadelphia Eaglesa quarterbacking situation for next year. "The club can't afford to obsess about the quarterback position this offseason at the expense of the rest of the roster. There's simply too much work to be done on defense. Eagles president Joe Banner told the club's Web site earlier this week that he didn't think the gap between the Eagles and Cowboys was as wide as those final two games indicated. And that sort of sentiment should scare the hell out of Eagles fans. Asante Samuel will always go to Pro Bowls based on his gaudy interception totals -- and those are important. But Samuel's reluctance to make contact with ball carriers will continue to be a sore spot with coaches and fans. Let's not act like Samuel's a so-called shut-down corner. I'm pretty sure Deion Sanders was the last man to fulfill that role. Samuel is one of the biggest gamblers in the game, which makes the Eagles susceptible to the big play (Austin on the sideline)."

“Just because big dollar Joe Banner is spouting off his thoughts dosen't mean squat. Andy Reid is well aware of his team's needs and we die hards know HE WILL REPLACE THOSE MISSING PIECES!!!”
