Yes, I hate those players that put the game and the team ahead of themselves and their own wellfare. Oh no, wait, those are the players I love. Did Brett Favre become a cancer to Green Bay by playing last year with a broken thumb, or the night of his father's death? No, he didnt. Did Travis Henry become a distraction by rushing for the Bills on a broken leg? No, he was the only thing resembling an offense on the entire team last year. By football standards its generally a noble act to put yourself at risk to help your team.
Look, he's already poisoning the team.
Proof? Oh yeah, this was said from the very beginning and its never happened. Media and critics have been examining every awkward glance, every conversation, but they've still been unable to find proof for their preemptive conclusion.
His teammates are already sick of hearing about his injury and whether or not he will play. He's already becoming a major distraction.
Oh, I haven't heard McNabb complaining, or Freddie Mitchell. Dawkins, Westbrook, and Trotter aren't upset about all of this. Where are you getting your information: I-Hate-Eagles-Anonymous Weekly?
And when he plays in the Super Bowl and gets shut down and the Eagles get embarassed, that's when the words are really going to fly and the crap's really going to hit the fan.
While you're at it Miss Cleo, mind telling me tomorrow winning Lotto number and when I'll find my true love?
Notice how there hasn't been one peep out of the Patriots' camp yet? They're focused and hungry.
