I dont know if its 'special' but it is good news, espcecially considering it involves TO actually going out of his way to improve, and to help the team. TO isnt known to be the type of person to do something like this. He thinks his skill alone is enough to get by.

And its especially important considering there isnt a huge success rate of stud WRs going to a new team and maintaining that stud level. By TO and McNabb spending more time working on timing and routes this summer, it will simply allow for better numbers from both of them. They have the potential to be fantasy freaks if they can get on the same page, and this is one step on the way.

I think a lot of that had to do with the WR's too. Duce Staley was the most reliable WR on that team the past 3 years. However, I think Reid loves to utilize TEs and will continue to do so, which is fine by me, because I think LJ Smith represents a much greater threat to defenses than Pinkston ever will.

Having a high-profile WR helps, but without a strong compliment receiver, I think the Eagles may still struggle at times. Until either Pinkston or Mitchell start actually showcasing some skills that get defenses concerned, I think Owens will see a lot of resistance from defenses, which will translate into a lot of discouragement.

i couldn't disagree more. if defenses focus on owens, it would have to be double teaming him. that really would leave them vulnerable to passes out of the backfield and to the tight end. teams were able to jam both wr's before, now that won't be an option. you can only focus on so many people. this should be a very fluid offense. the team as it was averaged something like 27 points per down the stretch. I think pinkston should eb able to do a little better with the focus on owens. this team does have weapons now, asnd it should make other teams more vulnerable to the pass/run combo of mcnabb.
