Going, Going, Gone. Hello Eagles' Disappointment

And we all thought that the disappointment ended with the loss to the Cardinals.

But come on, we are all Eagles' fans here and we all know disappointment reigns supreme with the Eagles.

Why so down you ask? Jordan Gross has been inked to a new deal by the Panthers. Bye, bye dreams of plugging the young stud in at tackle and using the draft to concentrate on the skill positions.

God damn Panthers...slowly (ok quickly) moving up my list of teams to hate. 2003 NFC Championship Game, having a lights-out season following the trade of their 2009 1st round pick, and now ending my dream of Gross suiting up in green.

Oh yea, we can also kiss the dream of having Peppers come to Philadelphia...the bastards of course slapped him with the franchise tag today.

No Gross. No Peppers. Now we are most likely left with the Eagles using their 1st round draft picks (package them to move up) to secure the OT of the future (we all saw how successful that plan was with Justice). And if you use the draft picks on a OT, well there goes any package deal in a potential trade for Boldin.

But at least L.J. hasn't been franchised again, so this off-season is still off to a better start than last year.

Thank god for the Phillies!

You have to get over the drafting of Justice. we all know he sucks. the eagles realized they made a mistake. but look at the draft when we took Andrews. we moved up and took him to everyones surprise. I wanted stephen jackson but whatever. I have no problem of moving up and taking a top OL. And because of the Phillies, the Eagles have all the time in the world to get there shit together. Spring training has started. thats the most important thing right now. GO PHILLIES
