      Some great points in there, I agree, seems to be what I was noticing as well, particularly with his points about the O-line and pass pro, how it was more of a problem with cohesiveness than ability.

        Shawn Andrews is going back to the surgeon who did his surgery early in the season last year to get his back checked out. Not a good sign and quite frankly I wouldn't be one bit surprised if we saw a headline within the next 2-3 days that Shawn Andrews will miss the season. Not good, especially considering it is his back. Back surgeries are very risky and often times players don't ever make a full recovery. I might be jumping the gun but, if Shawn's back does not check out and he gets another surgery I wouldn't be surprised if he retired.

        Now before you jump all over me, just listen. Like I said back surgeries are extremely tricky, especially for someone of Shawn's size where a lot of strain is constantly on his back. But my main reasons to believe this are these quotes:
        http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/14/sp.../14eagles.html

        Having broken his right fibula in his rookie season and having missed most of last season with a back injury, Andrews said he worried that physical impairment from football might restrict him in the future from playing with his son. He will discourage JaShawn from participating in the sport, he said.
        “All the physical anguish I’ve been through, the thought of not being able to get up and play with my son, that really keeps my mind going every day,” Andrews said.

        He sees some of his teammates dropping items and struggling to bend and pick them up.

        “I don’t want to live like that,” Andrews said.
        Sorry, but I don't care what people say but family and physical health is more important than football any day of the week. Shawn obviously does not love the game (he feels as if he was forced into the game because he was big) and he loves his son and I don't think Shawn will stick around to re-injure his back. Because injuring your back might be the quickest way to not being able to play with your son or pick up your bags.

        Lets all just hope that everything checks out because I don't feel like any good will come of this situation if he has to get another surgery.

          That is IMO the best Eagles blog from a football knowledge stand point, they do this after every game and it is very helpful. I would suggest reading that blog because they always do a fantastic job.

          • Andrews might as well stop playing and loose major weight, if he really feels like that.

            • How is Max Jean Gillis doing? I was a huge fan of his when he came out is he starting with Andrews hurt?

              • Max Jean-Giles is a starting caliber guard IMO, in fact a I think a high caliber starting guard. He doesn't allow pressure up the middle and he does a good job in run blocking. The only reason he isn't/wasn't starting is because of Shawn Andrews.

                  • You'll be fine at Guard if Shawn is a no go, but I like the prospect of Tuck going against Stacy at RT if it comes down to that.

                    Shawn would beast it at RT, but I don't think too highly of Stacy as a RT.

                    Unless you move Heremans to RT, and Giles to LG.

                    Even then though, I like Tuck on Heremans.

                      Harrison hits hard and is DESTROYER OF SCREENS, but he doesn't offer much else.

                          Well my fear has been proven wrong. Shawn Andrew's back checked out in California, no second surgery is needed. There is no structural damage, it is just a muscle issue so he should IMO be on the field at some point this season.

                          • That is great news about Shawn, hopefully he can come back and prove to be the top notch O-Linemen that he is.

                                Kind of odd... Brian Westbrook is just activated, Shady McCoy had a fantastic game and they're going to add Dunn? Stranger things have happened though *cough Michael Vick cough*
