Sorting out the Eagles' concerns

Tuesday, August 31, 2010, 10:19 AM
The Eagles are not the type to voice their concerns publicly. Ask about the offensive line, and Andy Reid will tell you they're fine. Failed opportunities in the red zone? No big deal. So with the Week 1 opener against the Packers just 12 days away, it's time to take stock of which concerns are... Read more
