Cut down day

The Eagles must trim their roster to 53 today. Unlike last year when I struggled to find players good enough to make the 53, the Eagles will be faced with several tough cuts today. Rookies like Jeff Owens, Jamar Chaney, Kennan Clayton, and Kurt Coleman have played too well in the preseason to survive on the practice squad, so the Eagles may be forced to make room for them on the active roster.

An interesting trade with the Cardinals last night brought in guard/tackle Reggie Wells. This spells the end for either the underperforming King Dunlap, or the undermotivated and whining Stacy Andrews. While I couldn't agree more with his contention that the Eagles are misusing him (few teams would sign an All-Pro tackle to a huge contract and then move him to guard), this Andrews sister never displayed the physicality or smarts required to play consistently for the Eagles - and that's no one's fault but his own. Now would be a perfect opportunity to cut ties with this disturbing family completely. Especially if Adam Schefter is correct about interest from other teams and the Birds can recover a draft pick from this fiasco.

Finally, PSU opens their season today with an embarrassing exhibition against DivI-AA Youngstown St. I'm sure this will thoroughly prepare them for a road trip to Alabama next week.
