The Philadelphia Eagles had high hopes for 2011.
The organization went out and stockpiled free agents and

Asomugha, former Pro Bowlers Jason Babin, Steve Smith,
Ronnie Brown and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Super

Take this gentleman, for instance. “Angry Greg” offered
up his thoughts to CSNPhilly.com, and the reviews of the
Eagles were not exactly glowing. Nor was his praise for
the Cardinals evident.
