    The Philadelphia Story: Rams will 'Fly Like An Eagle' to 'LINC' up in Phily opener

    The 2008 Rams may have their chances to start the season 1-0 as they will travel to Philadlphia to challenge the Eagles (September 7, 2008 / Lincoln Financial Field). In order to do this, the Rams need to take of the business at hand through the Draft, Free Agency, Traing Camp and Signings.

    THE STORY OF PHILADELPHIA


    This is the 75th season in the National Football League for the Philadelphia Eagles (1933-2008).

    The eagles won the last 3 games of the 2007 season to finish 8-8.

    QB Donovan McNabb missed most of last season with injuries.

    RB Brian Westbrook lead the Eagles in rushing (1,333), receptions (90) and TDs (12).

    Eagle resign TE L. J. Smith, cut DE Jevon Kearse and LB Takeo Spikes.

    Philadelphia holds the 19th pick in the 2008 Draft. (Reports have them shopping CB Lito Sheppard)

    Rams will meet up with ol' friend WR Kevin Curtis. The Eagles were active in trying aquire WR Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald and are now looking into Chad Johnson.

    The Eagles are coached by Andy Reid who's had off-the-field drug related issues involving his sons the past year. Reid a 2 times coach of the year has a winning percentage of .621 .

    Eagles have a Strong RT in John Runyan. QB A. J. Feeley did a good job of filling in for an injured McNabb. Noticibles on the defense Asante Samuels, Brian Dawkins and Omar Gaither.

    The Eagles will play on Thanksgiving day for the 1st time in 20 years, when they host the Arizona Cardinals.

    Just a few thoughts on the Rams openning day opponent, though a bit early, Now is the time to prepare for the start of the new season.

    Do the RAMS dare go into Philadelphia and take out the Eagles?

    It Can Be Done! GO RAMS!

    We definately need to add a pass rush. Especially against the Eagles. McNabb is dangerous, and with no pressure on him, he'll pick apart our defense.

    Speaking of defense, they have a murderous defense. It'll be tough for Bulger and company to try and pick apart the Eagles defense. It's gonna be a good team, but we need to add defense.

    McNabb can't run near as well as he used to, but he can still do enough to hurt us I believe.
    If our O-line can stay healthy through the offseason and preseason, then I won't worry too much about their pressure. I think Pace will do a fine job protecting Bulger, because he's got something to prove.
    I think we'll be able to contain McNabb's passing, but I would be worried about Westbrook, especially on those short 3 yard dump offs that he can turn in to a 75 yard TD.

    McNabb has never been the Qb to pick apart anyone. He's always been a better QB with pressure due to his escapability(is that a word?). McNabb seem to do better when plays broke down and he had to improvise with his legs or his arm.

    Westbrook is the workhorse of the offense that is the guy you have to limit if you want to beat the Eagles.

    They seem to always have a top ten defense and it starts in the trenches.

    Go Rams...

    We need to contain Brian Westbrook. ( See Superbowl XXXVI Patriots vs RAMS, Patriots held Marshall Faulk on every play and got away with it about 99% of the time)

    McNabb isn't what he used to be and their receiving corp might be below average.
