Six Letters: E-A-G-L-E-S!


Let's face facts, if Donovan McNabb stays healthy, Brian Dawkins resurrects his inner berserker and Brian Westbrook keeps putting up 2000+ combined yards, the Eagles are primed for a comeback.

Long shot? Perhaps, but throw in Reggie Brown, Brent Celek and rookie standout DeSean Jackson catching McNabb, and you have an offense that can rival any other in the NFC.

Sure, the linebackers remain a soft spot, but the addition of Asante Samuel to the All-Pro secondary allows the Eagles to get away with single coverage while cheating down on rushes. And there isn't a quarterback alive who can feel at ease while staring down the blitz-schemes of Defensive Coordinator Jim Johnson, who has racked up an NFL leading 342 sacks this century.

With pass-happy Andy Reid calling trick plays and thousands of loyal lunatics bleeding midnight green, the Eagles are a lock to be exciting, a threat to any opponent and a menace to Roger Goodell's new fan code of conduct.

It's true every year - the Eagles have a chance to go to the Super Bowl... IF McNabb and Westbrook stay healthy.

How often do both of those things happen in the same season?

The biggest test will come next Monday nite against the Cowboys. Determines how far the trio of McNabb, Jackson and Westbrook will go.
