5th round pick John Hightower cooking our biggest secondary acquisition in over a decade is not ideal. It’s just practice, Slay is a proven pro bowler and I’m really not concerned until this becomes an everyday thing. But, I’d be lying if this guy wasn’t the first thing that popped into my head.
I know it’s a crazy stretch but I’m hurt right now. Philly went 0-3 yesterday. Brett Brown has broken my brain. Up is down, left is right. I’m a nervous wreck. If the Flyers lose this series to Montreal somehow I’ll be devastated. I’ve chalked the Sixers up, they’re toast. But the real straw that breaks the camels back will be the birds. If they come out flat or even worse we lose the season to COVID. I don’t know what I’m going to do. Probably scream into my pillow for 16 weeks straight.
But let’s stay positive here. Maybe John Hightower is just this good. He did run a 4.43 40, maybe Howie did it finally. Maybe he put together a top wide receiver core. This is the start of Eagles football making it rain on teams. We’re going to average 40 points a game.
Let’s fucking go Birds baby!!
