    No he wouldn't be. I'm sure he would have signed somewhere else if that was the case.

      And Rex Ryan thought enough of Sheppard to trade a couple of draft picks for him. I didn't "freak out" as one defensive Eagles fan exaggerated. I just pointed out his loss.
      Loss? Try our gain. He was god awful last season and he wasn't great the year before either, there is a reason we signed Asante.

        And there's also a reason we re-signed Hanson to a multi-year deal instead of Lito.

          Lito is no loss. Dawkins and JJ will be missed, but we have more than adequate replacements in Demps and McDermott.

It's almost like most people take it for granted that the Eagles will be among the highest ranked defenses in the league again. I don't know the Eagles defense well enough to say how the changes will affect them. I'm not sure the Eagles have a clue how their defense will play at this point. I'm wondering what other fans think. I always liked watching the aggressive Jim Johnson defenses led by Brian Dawkins.
            You can add MLB Stewart Bradley to that list, he tore his ACL and is out for the season.

              Which will hurt more than any of the aforementioned losses that Eagles will have, I like the Eagles defense but IMHO it will not be as good as it was last year. Dawkins leadership will be missed, and before we call Demps an adequate replacement lets see him start a couple of games first, but they always have a beast in Mikell at SS to make up for it. I have a very good reason to believe that McDermott will replace Jim Johnson (RIP) with relative ease, but the only thing I see as a problem may be leadership/chemistry in his first year as the DC. I still think the Eagles will be in the top half of the league in defense if they can avoid anymore injuries.

                  Matt Wilhelm signed with the Eagles right? Ugh. All you really need to know is that he is better known in San Diego as Matt Whiffhelm, the least physical LB in the league. He lost his job to Tim Dobbins.

                    I would bet against the Eagles being a top 10 defense this year. If they are, Sean McDermot should get the award NFL's for top assistant. There is an award for that...right?

                      I am sure they will be. Their defensive line seems to produce no matter who plays on it, and they still have Asante Samuel.

                          Like I suspected, the Eagles defense was down this year.

                            Eagles D Sucks and their CB are over-rated.

                                Samuel is overrated but Brown is great.

                                Edit: I quoted the wrong post. Whoops.
