Eagles swoop in and sign Nnamdi Asomugha from under Cowboys’ noses

See what I did there? The Eagles “swooped?”  Because an Eagle is a bird, and birds swoop?  That’s why they pay me the big bucks, folks.

Clearly the Cowboys went hard… very hard… after Nnamdi Asomugha.  Per this graphic on NFLN, Jerry Jones wanted Nnamdi badly:

Look, if you’ve read my bio on this site, you already know that I’m an Eagles fan.  However, my aim here is to be as even-handed as possible in my analysis of all things NFC East.  With that in mind, there are just some stories where it’s impossible to keep the fandom out of my analysis.  So here’s what I’m going to do: I’m giving myself 3 tokens per season to use whenever I need to just be a fan about something.

I’ll be using one of those tokens right now.  (Continued after the jump)…

    Jimmy are you going to be there Thursday? I’ll be driving up their with my GF, who is a Patriots fan. I really think she is starting to crack under the pressure. Her thinking Desean being cute helps too I guess. If so, I know nothing of the area. Is there a good wing spot you would suggest?

    Well played, Howie and Andy! Congrats to Eagles fans (and Phillies fans too, for that matter, with Hunter Pence coming aboard).

    With the addition of Asomugha, clearly there is talent galore on this team. Now we will find out for sure if the problem all along with the Eagles not being able to get “over the hump” and win a SB has been the head coach. No excuses now, Andy ol’ boy. Super Bowl or bust–literally!

    Save one for February.

    If you see Red or Jeff at camp, let them know I’m pleased. Also, remind Howie to go sign Jackson and Watkins. Please let him know he shouldn’t feel rushed to trade Samuel or sign a LB, some gifts may appear when the rosters drop to 53. Lastly, ask Red to keep in touch with Billy Boy. There’s a chance they may want to dump that lineman they grabbed from DC.

    I’ll checkpoint with you on Monday.
