Oh, c'mon, it's been widely known around the league that Feagles' patio was in an awful state. You call yourself a football fan and you didn't know he needed a new one? Psh...

Man, he could go into the agent market after he's done with football. He can sign players to wear certain numbers knowing that someone who comes in will want it. He can milk the other guy for anything!

It's cool for kickers, though...they don't get paid a whole lot, so by just switching numbers all the time they can get all this free stuff. ;-D

Man what happened to the good old days when receivers actually wore numbers in the 80's. :-b

Awesome benefits for Feagles though. ;-D

I'll tell you what happened...we got a bunch of guys with humungous egos that think they own the world and can do whatever they want.

The uniform codes were set to help figure out who did what on the field (or at least I assume that's why)...now these stars want to be special and break the code for attention. :-t

I'm really surprised that people haven't been asking for #69 for a long time now... ;-7

10-19 is the alternate number set for receivers.

OK...but it's still not normal. :-) ;-)
How many teams have 10 WR's on the roster and/or enough in the HOF that have retired numbers. :-?

Agreed, not normal, but most of the 80 numbers were taken and he said he wanted 17 in honor of his mother because that's they day she died. I though it was kind of cool.

A lot of the numbers in the 80's are taken by receivers and TE's on the team. You may think that there are less than 10 combined receivers/TE's, so all the guys can fit in the 80's? I think not. Take the Eagles for example. Their receivers are:

Terrell Owens
Todd Pinkston
LJ Smith
Justin Jenkins
Greg Lewis
Chad Lewis
Mike Bartrum
Billy McMullen
Freddie Mitchell

There may be a few I forgot, but that list is 9 guys right there. That woudl mean that there would be 1 number left for another receievr in the 80's. You also have to factor in retired players. For the eagles, there are no players with a retired number in the 80's (see below)

Retired Numbers: (6)
15 Steve Van Buren RB 1944-1951
40 Tom Brookshier CB 1953, 1956-1961
44 Pete Retzlaff TE 1956-1966
60 Chuck Bednarik C & LB 1949-1962
70 Al Wistert OT & DT 1943-1953
99 Jerome Brown DT 1987-1997

...but most teams would. In conclusion, it is almost impossible to fit all the receivers in the 80's, especially old teams with more retired players.

Also: Now that you can use 10-19, a lot of receivers are jumping on that bandwagon and getting a new number because it looks cooler. Pretty soon, it may look like there are 4-5 QB's out on the field at a time.
