Dear Mr. Lurie

I have put in it a lot of thought, research, stress, and work, but I’ve put this list together for you, I’m HOPING next Friday you can just run down the list and check them off one by one, and I guarantee, Super Bowl XLIV will be money in the bank…

1. Sign RT Vernon Carey (MIA):  He has a real “nasty” streak a la Runyan. PERFECT replacement. Supposedly wants $20 million total, a reasonable amount. O-Line would be: LT Herremans; LG Max Jean or Nick Cole; C JJ; RG Andrews; RT Carey. (Supposedly you are talking with Tra Thomas about returning, though, I would be fine with that too)

2. Sign FB Leonard Weaver (SEA); THE best FB on the market; great blocker, decent runner, better-than-average receiver

3. Sign TE Bo Scaife (TEN): Good receiver, better-than-average blocker.  Combined with Celek, TE would be shored up tremendously.

And then there’s the WR position:

4. Trade for Boldin (1st, 3rd, Justice) OR Ocho Cinco(4th, Reggie Brown)

IF you don’t trade for a receiver, then the draft could then be:

21. Best RB available (Moreno or McCoy)

28. Hakeem Nicks, WR, North Carolina: Reminds people of Boldin; everything I read says he’s the most polished receiver in the draft.  Having him line up on the other side of DeSean Jackson for 10 years??  Could potentially be the best WR combo in the NFL for years with Nicks doing the dirty work underneath and across the middle,

Oh, by the way…the below is confidential; you can’t mention it to anyone until next week, after you read this, we meet and I take over for Tommy Heckert ….shhhh

Thank you,

Your soon-to-be General Manager

Chris

Shawn Andrews Out At Least 6 Months

Eagles All-Pro guard Shawn Andrews had surgey on his lower back yesterday will be out at least 6 weeks, with a possibility he’s done for the season.

Andrews had surgery to repair a herniated disc. The surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins, who just also happened to operated the same procedure on fellow Eagles offensive lineman Tra Thomas in 2005.

The Eagles had sent Andrews to a number of specialists, trying to locate the cause of the problem. Watkins was the fourth opinion on the injury. Before Andrews visited Watkins early last week, coach Andy Reid said the team had not seen progress in his recovery after minimal improvement shortly after the injury.

Shawn has not played since injuring his back at Dallas in Week 2.  Max-Jean Gilles will remain in the lineup in Andrews’ absence.
