Baskett Needs To Impress His Girl

How does one go about impressing a Playboy Playmate? Well if you are a WR in the NFL the obvious first step is to not be on the bottom of the depth chart. Mission accomplished for Hank Baskett.

What a life. An NFL WR. Engaged to Kendra Wilkinson. Now comes the difficult part...not losing the girl. Good luck Hank. Her last boyfriend was Hugh Hefner. Yea it's a tough follow-up, but after Thursday night's performance at least you're headed in the right direction.

Throughout his short career Baskett was known for making the big play. Very nice, but usually after the big play he would then get lost in the Eagles' crowded WR mix. Well not any more. Already this season Baskett has posted career highs in catches, receiving yards, and TDs. Quick somebody get L.J. a playmate!

Moving forward it looks like Baskett has assumed the #2/3 WR role in the Eagles offense. Jackson, Curtis, and Baskett. Not spectacular, but better than any Eagles trio that includes Reggie Brown.

Baskett is not the end all answer at WR for the Eagles, but he does have a niche in this offense. So hopefully Reid and McNabb keep calling his number. The man has a woman to impress!
