Some folks on these boards started calling the 2007 draft a fluke. The Reese was criticized for 2009 draft (because of Clint Sintim, Ramses Barden, Travis Beckum, Rhett Bomar and the two CBs who didn't make the team), so what the roster was loaded and Bruce Johnson, a free agent, outplayed the drafted cornerback.
Reese was then criticized for drafting JPP in 2010 and not drafting any linebackers in the 2011 draft. J. Williams turned out to be an excellent linebacker for the Giants and Jones with the the two free agents all contributed during the season.
The worst complaints came the Eagles went stupid and started signing every free agent possible. Reese got killed on these boards for not doing the same PROVEN FAILED STRATEGY. Folks were acting like Boss, SS and Cofielfd were probowl alternates.
Reese resigned Boothe, didn't trade Osi and believed in the talent he accumulated. Give the man his credit.
