Right I believe they made a couple of trades and ultimately ended up signing a guy who I don't believe has played for a couple of years. It's not like they had someone waiting in the wings should their starter go down. So let's not act like they did.

My point being was their defense didn't fall apart due to the absence of a vital cog in their defense.

I can list a few other positions where they had injury and we'll look at the backup...QB Kolb comes in and throws huge for the 2 games of relief he played, goes 1-1 and wins over the Chiefs. Campbell played verse the Chiefs and lost and he's a starter. McCoy is proving to be serviceable with Westbrook going down. The rookie, Maclin, steps in for Curtis since he's been out with knee ailments. Winston Justice is a 2nd rounder who the Eagles didn't want to rely on OL. He is now starting and receiving praise for 'stepping up his play' this season.

Here is the list of the Eagles IR:
Cornelius Ingram Sep 1, 2009 Injured Reserve Knee
Stewart Bradley Sep 1, 2009 Injured Reserve Knee
Fenuki Tupou Sep 6, 2009 Injured Reserve Chest
Shawn Andrews Sep 15, 2009 Injured Reserve Back
Omar Gaither Oct 28, 2009 Injured Reserve Left foot
Ellis Hobbs Nov 11, 2009 Injured Reserve Neck

Here is the Skins:
Colt Brennan Sep 6, 2009 Injured Reserve Hip
Randy Thomas Sep 23, 2009 Injured Reserve Torn right triceps
Chris Samuels Oct 31, 2009 Injured Reserve
Chris Horton Nov 11, 2009 Injured Reserve Toe
Ladell Betts Nov 23, 2009 Injured Reserve Torn ACL and MCL
Eddie Williams Nov 23, 2009 Injured Reserve Fibula
Chad Rinehart Nov 23, 2009 Injured Reserve Fibula

They've suffered their season ending injuries earlier this year. Just about half of our come from this past week. Also Colt is hardly apart of this list as he was battling to even make the team during camp.


With this said I feel the most important thing to be reminded of is this...under no circumstances should there be any excuses for the current state of our team. If we're not seeing a bountiful harvest it's probably because no one is planting seeds.

Re: Record Injuries

Kevin Kolb and Winston Justice, especially Justice, are two examples of high draft picks that have struggled for years and would have been called busts by the middle of their first season here.

And Ingram and Tupou are two rookies anyway
