    Eagles miss him clogging up the middle

    Indy's gain

    Balance of power shift on that transaction.

    I think it started before that.

    Actually, Hollis Thomas is a heck of a DT and clogs the middle very well.

    However, they do need more than one.

    It did, but I still agree with the first post. Simon's departure really hurt the Eagles and really has helped the Colts.

    Add in losing Burgess to Oakland and McDougle to the unfortunate shooting incident. Talent and depth are not as strong this season for the Eagles D-line.

    Wait a minute, are we saying that losing players has caused the problems on defense or has the scheme changed?

    i've been saying htis for a while. Kearse and Kalu look half as effective this year as well. Simon was a huge presen ce in that middle. I'm not sure that's the only cuase of their problems this year, but it's a big one. As good as Donovan has been, as good as Westbrook was, the staple of that team always was that aggressive defense.

    I agree, Simon was underated and might have been the last straw. Johnson is a great DC, but he only has some much to work with.

    Did you see how fat he was in the Colt's first game? And if you check his stats with Indy you see 16 solo tackles, 7 assists, no sacks.

    I think he ate his way off the Eagles.

    I agree, the loss of Simon has hurt the Eagles badly. It was as big of a mistake as it would have been for us to have lost LaRoi' Glover. I'm just glad it was the Eagles making the mistake and not us.
