The Philadelphia Eagles are making promises they can't keep again. This time it comes by way of newly signed nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, who set the bar pretty high during his introductory press conference on Wednesday. As we've heard so many times before, he insists 2013 is finally the year the Eagles win it all.
"I believe and I promise that we are going to shock the world," Sopoaga said. "I believe that Coach Kelly has a big solid book out there for us. We're willing and anxious to test it and show it in action."
Sopoaga isn't the only one talking a big game, however. Head coach Chip Kelly stands by Sopoaga's comments and has made it adbundantly clear the Eagles aren't looking for losers – they're looking for winners. And if you're not a proven winner? Well, then, don't bother with the Eagles.
"If you don't plan on coming here and winning, then we're not going to talk to you," Kelly said. "So the statements that [Sopoaga] makes that is exactly how everybody in this football program feels and what it's all about. We also know it's not about talk because what you say in March and what you say in April doesn't have anything to do with what you do on Sundays if that's all you do is talk.
They may not be the "Dream Team" anymore, but it's clear the 4-12 Eagles are still dreaming. And man oh man, are they funny or what?
