EAGLES VET: Rumors always ring true
But we all know it's not what the Eagles say and how they spin it, but what they do and how they do it that counts.
And now the players know it as well.
"I've come to learn in Philadelphia," one prominent Eagle said, most of the rumors turn out to be true."
Sheppard is on the trade block; even the Eagles don't deny it.
And every last Eagles player now knows the team intended all along to trade Sheppard providing they signed elite cornerback Asante Samuel, who isn't as talented as the incumbent but has been able to post better numbers because he's avoided injury.
Further every smart Eagles player knows merely by reading between the lines of the latest conflicting spin that the coaches and management do NOT have full confidence in the wide receiver corps, because if they did they wouldn't have courted superstar Randy Moss.
No matter how the Eagles spin it, no matter what they want you to believe, their truth is in their actions, not their words.
