First: Admit there is a problem
Today, Eagles head coach Andy Reid admitted that it is time to fix some of the problems on special teams. He wants to improve kickoff and punt returns.
And it is about time, if you have an ailing quarterback like Donovan McNabb, how about giving him the best starting position possible?
In kickoff returns, the Eagles are 27th in the NFL with an average starting position around the 24-yard line (23.9). Rod Hood has an average of 22.2 yards per return on 10 attempts and Dexter Wynn has an 18.8 average on eight tries.
Certainly to be near the bottom in any category is not acceptable for any team with Super Bowl aspirations.
