Philadelphia Eagles preview

Apparently Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman weren’t kidding when they said back in June that their club would make a major splash in free agency. Philly’s infusion of new defensive talent after the lockout was on a scale never before seen in one NFL offseason. Before bagging the prized buck of the ’11 free agent class (former Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha), the Eagles signed ex-Titans defensive end Jason Babin (12.5 sacks in ’10) and Packers stud defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins.

After a Week 12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens last season, a game in which quarterback Donovan McNabb was benched in the second half, the Eagles sat at 5-5-1 and would need to play perfect football the last five weeks of the season if there was any hope of making the playoffs.
