They have begun the spree with Thomas Tapeh, a local kid who has turned into a hell of a full-back. He is further proof that the full-back position is not dying out, but rather is seeing a certain renaissance. Tapeh is smart, agile, and as strong as they come, and he already knows the system. I liked Tony Richardson but Tapeh is about half his age and an upgrade as a receiver. I like this pick up.
They continue their purchases with Madieu Mohamed Williams ($35 Million) a safety, who I have read good things about, but know little, except for the fact that he played on a porous Bengals defense. They needed an upgrade at that position, especially after the Purple released Pal-O-Mine and underperforming defensive back Dwight Smith (now a Motor City Kitty). Williams is younger, bigger and I am sure faster than Smith, Tank, and Mike Doss combined. He has 9 picks in his four year career. Mohamed, damned terrorist, was a teammate of Vikings LB E.J. Henderson at Maryland. And like Tapeh, he is a West African by birth.
So, the push to lose another Superbowl is on. Now we await the arrival of the meteor Bernard Berrian for the price of a small country’s GDP and maybe several other ex-Eagles. Skol!
