Finally, Andy Reid admits his offense does, in fact, need skilled players at the “skill positions”

The Eagles have added Donte Stallworth to the seemingly endless array of wide receivers they’ve procured over the years to try and catch McNabb.

While he’s no Jevon Walker, he is a player with great potential. And a hell of a lot better than some of Reid’s previous acquisitions in the position, e.g. James Thrash, Jabar Gaffney and Darnerien McCants.

And if he and Donovan click, he could very well take his game to the next level and emerge as a premier wide receiver. (Ever the optimists… so sue us.)

The fun part, of course, is when that does happen, the Eagles will want to pursue a contract extension with Stallworth, a potential free agent at the end of the season. That means Andy Reid will have to renew old acquaintances and deal with Stallworth’s agent, one Drew Rosenhaus. And that’s just sweet justice.

Ah, the memories:
