I would absolutely love to write a semi-objective piece about Monday night's showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears. I'd like nothing more than to celebrate the game as a nationally televised coming out party for Matt Forte and LeSean McCoy (LESEAN MCCOY), the two best running backs currently playing in the NFL. Unfortunately, I have to bury the dead bird in my back yard first.
Last week, the Philadelphia Eagles pulled off the NFL free-agency equivalent of buying out the bar. They signed defensive end Jason Babin, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, quarterback Vince Young, and free agency’s crown jewel, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. This was front office bottle-popping that would have earned a slack-jawed round of applause from a ’94-era Diddy.
