But last night I saw something truly unexpected: the Eagles took a 26 year old ex-fireman and ex-hockey player who's only played football for about 5 years with their #1 pick.
Reasons why I'm not freaking out this morning:
- Andy Reid picked up someone to protect Mike Vick's blindside. Thank God, because Max Jean-Gilles wasn't getting it done.
- Danny may be 26, but he's regular 26 not football 26 thanks to his relatively short career to date.
- I quote Fellow Eagles Maniac: "Love this quote about Watkins: 'Watkins is a mature, physical player with a nasty disposition.'" That'll work.
- How fun was watching his fire fighter posse go nuts when he was picked?
In the meantime, I'm looking forward to the presser at 4 today.
