    I've been out of the football loop for a while - I need to catch up on player movements and such. Any thoughts on the AFC West this year?

    The biggest news I've heard out of that division is who will lead the Broncos- Tebow or Kyle Orton....
    I think Raiders made some moves as well.

    But I haven't heard anything out of San Diego and KC. Not that they haven't, just nothing to Note.

    Seems like Philly is the place to be if you are a free agent. Sounds like they want to be a SERIOUS contender this year. This will shut up a lot of haters. Like really shut them up.

    This will go well, or be a trainwreck.

    I'm hoping for trainwreck, much like with the Miami Heat.

    Exactly. If it goes well, it could go really well. But, if it doesn't go well, there will be a lot of criticism. Teams in any sport often look good on paper, but they still have to get it done out on the field. A lot of variables go into a successful team - internal chemistry, staying healthy, bad breaks (losing a few REALLY close games can hurt), etc. It'll be interesting to see how it goes though - they've definitely taken the right steps to put a good team on the field.

    Nobody claimed 4,5,6,7 super bowl rings, here. Not in Philly. We better shut up and just work hard.

    Message board chatter and fan sentiment seems to be comparing the Eagles to both the Redskins and the Heat. It seems to me that the Eagles already had a good team and have added some free agents at key positions of weakness, which isn't the same as Dan Snyder overpaying the biggest free agent name to take a stab at relevance. And what everyone hated about the Heat was the conspiratorial nature of the idea, the notion that a couple of superstar friends were gaming the system. I don't see that with the Eagles either...they targeted weaknesses and courted free agents who would fill them. A history of cap sanity paid off.

    I am certainly not claiming they'll win the Super Bowl, especially after being a bridesmaid for ten years. But it utterly vexes and puzzles me that a good portion of the NFL fanbase seems to feel like adding good players to your team is hubris instead of, you know, trying to get better. God forbid a team try to improve.

    I commend them for trying to improve. They've done well in that regard. Now they've got key pieces in place; all that's left to do is work hard, try to stay healthy, work towards good chemistry, and let the chips fall where they may. Many very good teams in every sport have been unable to "get over the hump" and win a championship, despite all their efforts to do just that. All you can do is put together a good team and hope it works out. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.

    What you're seeing from fans is probably jealousy. If their team doesn't do well in the offseason and they see another team doing REALLY well, they get a little irked/jealous. "Why isn't my team doing that?!" Or for smaller market teams (mainly baseball/basketball), "I wish my team could spend that kind of money to get a really good team!"

    I'm sort of a hypocrite in that, being from L.A., I'm a Laker fan and I love it when they beef up their team with the likes of Pau Gasol, Ron Artest, etc. But, when I see the N.Y. Yankees or the Miami Heat do it, I get pissed. It's just my "fan bias".
