The story of this week is injuries. For everyone. It usually takes until about mid-season to rack up as many downed players as the NFL did in week 1. Did everyone forget to eat their Wheaties or something? And that list doesn't even show the guys whose seasons have been ended already.
Anyway, we head to Detroit to face the Lions this weekend. Mike Vick will be QB for at least one more week, Mike McGlynn's now our starting center, we signed Owen Schmitt so we'd have a full back, and (shout out to my friend David from TrueNorth), Omar Gaither will start at MLB in place of injured Stewart Bradley. At this rate, I calculate we'll be completely out of players by early December. But we should be able to pull off a win over a Lions team that's lost starting QB Matt Stafford to injury, too. And frankly, if we can't beat the Lions, I may need to revise that 6-10 prediction on our series down. Significantly. Eagles.
