Rhea Hughes

rhea hughes has this situation dead wrong. early this morning, i listened to wip for about 10 minutes and in those short 10 minutes i heard rhea spout off this nonsense:

- "the eagles are better with TO on the field." - she is living in the past. if there weren't so much water under the bridge, that would be true. the performance of the birds in the first half of the season and the gloomy atmosphere of the players on the team should tell you that this statement is likely untrue. you need to get over it, rhea. TO is gone, and the team is better off for it. you can't build a team like it's paint by numbers. chemistry matters in football more than any other sport because so much of the success is determined by emotion and "swagger". it's hard to play with emotion when you have a wet blanket dominating the team psyche.

- "the reason the eagles defense is bad is because of the losses of corey simon, derrick burgess, and ike reese" - my gosh, i couldn't disagree more. derrick burgess was a loss, no doubt about it, but she and cataldi would be the first ones to kill the eagles if burgess had gone down with another injury. this was a guy who had serious injuries every year of his career. without knowing what we know now (burgess staying healthy for the first half and mcdougle getting shot), are you sure you wouldn't have made the same move, rhea? i liked ike reese as a person, but he was an average player at best and has made no impact on the falcons. he was a good special teams player, but i don't think he was worth what the falcons payed him. corey simon is a big tub of lard now. he is not an impact player. did you watch the game last night? can you remember him making a single play? it's no surprise that the eagles run defense has improved with simon's departure. last point, the money they didn't spend on ike, corey, and derrick is now sitting in brian westbrook's pocket.

- "the eagles released TO to deflect attention from the fact that the real reason they are struggling is because they lost simon, reese, and burgess" - that's just flat out silly. TO is a cancer and it was well past time for him to go.

I honestly can't even watch Cataldi. He's the kind of guy I want to meet in a bar and say "hey look, they're dressing up monkeys now".....

And speaking of news wenches. Is there any purpose to that Suzy chick on ESPN sidelines? She gives reports about crap we've all heard about already in the SAME broadcast from other broadcasters, she reads like a 70's robot, and doesn't seem to know what's going on in the game at THAT moment, the most important part of a sportscasters' job. Useless...
