I've only felt this way when Reggie left and now Dawk.

While the other moves were disappointing, Reggie and Dawk are once in a generation type players that raise them above the merely good players.
And since both of them still have real value to this team, it is worse (Reggie even moreso since he had more good years left in him).

But more than anything, I wanted to see Dawkins raise the Lombardi trophy for this team and for this city. There would be nothing else like it.

Now that is gone, and it really, really sucks.

The Eagles might very well win a Super Bowl some day but to me the sense of urgency is gone.

Maybe their will be another Eagle that will give his heart and soul for 13 years and represent everything that is good about the game. Westbrook? Stewart Bradley? Trent Cole? Sheldon Brown? Who will be the next Dawk?

The thought of Shawn Springs replacing Dawkins in our secondary makes me want to puke.

So, what will it take to get me excited for next year?
Spurr, the excitement will return. This year, it will start off different. We'll be more concerned and curious rather than our usual expectation of great things. But once the hitting starts, we'll be into it again.

If the team ends up sucking big time, then we'll get to be mad all over again.

I just remember that it's a full six months before our first regular season game.

Right now, just keep telling myself that the FO period is far from over.

I think you mean the Free Agent period, not the Front Office (Farce) period.

Apparently they don't agree with you or they wouldn't have even made an offer.

And he's still the best or 2nd best safety on the team. So you don't let him go until you have a replacement in place. This is so typical of this penny wise but pound foolish front office.

I won't say that they haven't tried because they drafted Gaddis two years ago and Demps last year. But this is way to similar to how they've handled the FB position last year, the Punt returner two years ago, and the miserable Simmy for Trotter experiment.

jesus. give it a fucking rest already leif.

I love how all of the sudden you're the expert on Dawkin's drop off. Meanwhile, I'm 99% certain that if I cared to comb through the game day threads, you'd be fellating Dawk during the latter part of the season.
