Retire the number, then retire the trend
The Eagles are going to honor Brian Dawkins Sunday, aren't they?
Am I right or am I right?
Who would have known? He only had two retirement press conferences already. And that was before similar made-for-whatever press extravaganzas to honor Brian Westbrook and Tra Thomas.
Combined, the former players have 30 this-space-available fingers, but the Eagles apparently are not going to allow an almost-successful era to pass without a Broadway show.
Hey, have fun Sunday. BDawk was a fine man and a fine player. But, please, no more tributes to a championship-free Eagles era.
Because at this rate, they are destined to honor ... you know who.
