Beside the D, there are two other major concerns. The first is age: Seven of the team's projected starters--accounting for 19 Pro Bowl selections--are 30 or older, including McNabb and Spikes. The second is a possible struggle for the mantle of leadership. In separate press conferences over a three-day span in early August, the since-released Trotter said, "There's never one leader on one team. A lot of people lead in different ways"; Westbrook said, "I think I will continue in that role" of a team leader he assumed when McNabb went down; and McNabb said bluntly, "I'm the leader of this team."
However, should its veterans stay healthy and harmonious, there's little reason why the Eagles can't make a serious run at that long-awaited first Super Bowl title.
