Andrews/Jean-Gilles Likely Done; Westbrook Honored

Tuesday, December 2, 2008 ·

When we were informed of Shawn Andrews' surgery on October 21, we were told his recovery time was 6 eeks to 3 months. Now that the Eagles playoff picture is getting very dim, so is Andrews' return. The Eagles website reported that Andrews may be done for the remainder of the season but is still hopeful.

His replacement has been Max Jean-Gilles who is also done for the rest of the year with a fractured ankle he suffered in the Eagles win vs. Arizona the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. His replacement was Nick Cole, the back up center. Andy Reid will announce later today if Cole or someone else will be the starting right guard.

I personally think they should just stick with Cole. He did a decent job and there is no one out there really worth looking at as a replacement. This season is pretty much in the bag as being another year with no title and Andrews shouldn't risk playing. Besides, it'll be a cheaper option for this frugal franchise.

On a lighter note, Brian Westbrook was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the 2nd time this season. Westbrook ran 22 times for 110 yards and caught three passes for 20 yards against Arizona. He also scored four touchdowns, two each rushing and receiving. He deserved these honors as he was remarkable. However, Wesbrook's consistency has been very shitty.

Westbrook will need to have a similar performance like that vs the Giants if the Eagles want to have a prayer in winning this week. Hopefully that performance is a sign of god things. Not only has his total yards been down in the last 4 games prior to Arizona but he was also kept out of the end zone, including the first meeting vs. the Giants.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
