One of the best parts of an Eagles game at the Linc is when the defense is announced during pre-game ceremonies. As a fan you sit there just waiting until the final name is announced. You know that the announcement of that last player is going to crank up your excitement a good 10 notches...at least!
At safety, from Clemson....and then the crowd pumping antics begin from Dawkins.
Shocked would be an understatement to today's news of Brain Dawkins signing with the Broncos. Players like B-Dawk are why we fans bleed the green. If someone could actually give 110% that person would be Dawkins.
Where does one even begin when describing Dawkins. All-Pro, Future Hall of Famer, team leader, team role model, community leader.....
Dawkins is everything that is right with Eagles football. Today's news defines everything that is wrong with Eagles football...the Banner Boys and their need to always put the business side of football first.
Letting Dawkins hit free agency was the ultimate disrespect to Brian and to the fans that support the team. When you are 40+ million dollars under the salary cap you open up your pocketbook Joe and you give Dawkins the extra cash or the extra year (see Jamie Moyer and the Phillies example for the proper way to do business).
Instead business rules and Dawkins and the fans are left with a big FU from the front office. Congratulations Banner, your team is now the true leader of the No Fun League.
