Testing 1-2-3—-We got ’em in Boston, so back to Eagles football…

I feel guilty about playing off a national tragedy to test a website…

But gosh darn it, I promised our Bored members a real test of this site… I'll keep this short.

First the incredible saga of the two weirdo brothers is over…

It's sad on so many levels…

Got to admit this boy put up one hella fight… But now it's time for him and his bro' to rot in hell…

I don't get why anyone in their right mind would go down this path… But I've got to take a side on the innocent victims of this deluded fraternity of losers…

Life is weird and sucks sometimes…

Now I got my own problems…

Livefyre is acting up. Once the saving grace of our forsaken Eagles Nation after the big bomb hit at OTI, it is now driving our followers away into the desert.

This is a personal disgrace for me. I've got to perk up and salvage this exodus.

But alas, I am not a programmer. And I can't afford to pay our resident programmer Spiffo to fix it…

So I (and we by extension) are at the mercy of a lovely lass named Dharia…and a tough-hearted Swede by the name of Derek at Bloguin.com….

They either get together and fix us… or they don't.

So this is kind of a test blurger…

Let's pick a quick Eagles topic to make it real…

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, Trent Cole (DE) and where does he fit into the new defense?

Trent Cole went from his usual double-digit sacks to just 3.0 last season. He was injured. Pretty badly from what Cole described to reporters on Wednesday after the second day of Eagles voluntary minicamp.

Cole claims he originally hurt his right wrist during the 2011 season. He says the tendon tore and it broke some time during the 2012 season, when he appeared on the injured list just once — Week 4 — with a shoulder injury.

"It was an injury I had two years ago but I kept playing with it. It finally snapped in half," Cole said as he sported tape on both wrists. "I played through the season with it and I had to get surgery. I tore tendons and everything. I snapped the bone right off the joint."

Cole wouldn't use it as an excuse. He admitted to being disgusted by his performance and vowed to bounce back with a vengeance.

"In this game, there are injuries that happen all the time," Cole said. "I can tell you about injuries you wouldn't believe I played through. There are a lot of other guys who have been through tough injuries and still played."

Cole, 30, underwent offseason surgery on the wrist in February. He was ready for the first day of practice earlier this week.

Now, he's out to redeem himself after the lowest sack output of his career. Cole had reached double-digits in sacks each of the three previous seasons. He managed just 3.0 in 755 snaps last year.

It may be difficult for him to reach that mark again considering he's changing positions. With the Eagles switching to a 3-4 defensive scheme, Cole is expected to play outside linebacker. He'll be asked to be a stand-up rusher for the first time since high school.

Okay—there's the hook— Trent Cole was playing injured, and so is Livefyre…  Maybe we both can rehab and come back strong? I hope so…
