The Philadelphia Eagles are showing interest in embattled Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin. I will be the first to say that if the Eagles do get Boldin—and I have this very troubled feeling that they will—the Dallas Cowboys, and quite frankly, every team in the NFL is in deep doo doo.
I don’t like the Eagles. I am not trying to fluff their feathers. I hate every darn player on that team. In fact, I only dislike the Washington Redskins more, and it is barely more. Both teams make me cringe. With that said, I don’t have the same vitriol for head coach Andy Reid. The guy makes bold moves like benching his star quarterback in the middle of the season, and he agrees to drop their top wide receiver because he was arguing with other players.
All Donovan McNabb has cried about ever since Terrell Owens was fired has been “Give me a No. 1 wide receiver.”
Boldin would be that guy. He will really be that guy. And I can see him connecting with McNabb real quick, for big gains, and freeing up sophomore DeSean Jackson. Brian Westbrook will look pretty, too.
So, shall we get down on our knees and pray they do not get him?
The Cowboys will have potential to win playoff games probably for the next five years straight, no matter who is coaching. The question will be: can they do it?
