Westbrook had this to say in Arizona about the team's offseason plans:
In case people hadn't heard it, Eagles running back Brian Westbrook repeated that he is among the growing list of players who are siding with quarterback Donovan McNabb, requesting that management bring additional weapons to the team for next season.
"I think having more weapons on your team takes pressure off of everybody," said Westbrook, who is at Super Bowl XLII as part of a promotional campaign with Chili's Restaurant. "If you look at a team like the Patriots, they have so many weapons that if you shut down one guy, it just gives so many more opportunities to other guys to play well.
"If you have those guys who can make those plays, it makes it a lot easier on the entire team. That's something we could definitely use and hopefully we'll get that."
I understand you draft for the long term, with a focus on a few key positions. I get the philosophy. But when Reggie Brown is the only skill position player you've drafted since 2003 who is actually contributing, you're going to have to go get some guys as free agents.
Guys drafted in the second round of the 2006 draft after Winston Justice (whom I like, remember):
- Sinorice Moss
- Greg Jennings
- Devin Hester
- Maurice Jones-Drew
