Eagles fan, I hear you. I feel your pain. I believe in the Eagles just as much as any lifelong fan of these Eagles. Well, have heart Eagles fans! I predict a major shift in what the coaching staff (cough, Andy Reid) will have in store for the upcoming 2009 season! The Eagles Front Office went out and got some really quality additions to the Offense in general (Jason Peters, Stacey Andrews, Leonard Weaver, Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy, and Cornelius Ingram) which should allow for more holes to be opened up to counter teams putting 8 and 9 men in the "box" to neutralize Brian Westbrook's explosive playmaking ability and to allow #5 to make plays along with "Action Jackson", KC, "The Mac", the Baskett and Brent " don't call me Tom" Celek!  The increase of "beef" on the offense will (hopefully) give Andy Reid the "easy" choice of RUNNING the football on crucial downs instead of running pass plays on the 2 yard line!! The flexibility/fluidity  that the Eagles brought to their offense this offseason is undeniable! They have capable WR's in Kevin Curtis, Jason Avant, Reggie Brown, and Hank Baskett, and some "Young Lions" in DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, and Brent Celek who provide speed, energy, and enthusiam! The difference that Eagles will have in the playbook will be: more running plays, Spread formations, maybe even some more WildCat formations (featuring Jeremy Maclin, DJ, Westbrook, and McNabb)!!! I believe the Eagles playbook will be more run heavy, play action mixed in to disrupt defenses, and more a few more trick plays then last year! Listen to the people, Andy (and you too, Marty!)
