Hey Nnamdi, Tell Me How Last Tastes

Actually my heart goes out to former Raiders pro bowl cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. Nnamdi left our beloved Raiders for what looked like greener pastures in Philadelphia. Now the so called "Dream Team" Eagles have spiraled so far down that assistant coaches are arguing on the sideline, players are playing not to get hurt and Philly fans are chanting for the head of head coach Andy Reid.

Nnamdi, suffering from a hyperextended left knee, played sparingly yesterday in their (38-20) loss to the New England Patriots, but I'm sure the chants of "Fire Andy! Fire Andy!" echoing throughout the stadium brought back nightmares of the Jarmarcus Russell boos that shook the Oakland Coliseum to it's core a few seasons back.

The Eagles, thought to be a Super Bowl contender by just about every football analyst, are a disappointing (4-7), tied for last place in the NFC East. It just goes to show that the team predictions you see on paper at the start of the season, are good for nothing more than wiping butts after a hearty Thanksgiving meal come late November.
