Good News Eagle Fans...

Hopefully by this time everyone is realizing that despite the loss, last nights' performance was overall very encouraging.

There are no moral victories, but I feel much more confident this week than last week in knowing that the Eagles are a top team not only in the NFC, but in the entire NFL. Yea there are problems to solve, but they are fixable...so we hope!

So on to the good news. Looks like a banged up Steelers team coming to the Linc...

  • Ben Roethlisberger will be playing Sunday's game with a sprained shoulder. This would probably be better news if the Eagles front 4 could generate a pass rush, but enough negativity from me for one day.
  • Starting DE Brett Keisel is out for Sunday's game with a calf strain.
  • Starting cornerback Deshea Townsend's heel contusion might force him to miss his second game in a row.

And, just imagine the national attention that Philly would receive if we booed the singer of the National Anthem...

Ben played well with separated shoulder against Cleveland.

Willie Parker is healthy.
OL looks good.

D brings pressure with LBs. Their weak spot is safeties who tend to overcommit in coverage.
