The questions for the Eagles going into Training Camp 2008:
Can Donovan McNabb stay healthy? He's battling shoulder issues, if that carries over into the season, the Eagles are cooked.
Will Lito Sheppard show up, and will he be a "Happy Camper"? He held out of mini-camp, and the Eagles can ill-afford to be short a talented cornerback in the NFC East.
Will prized free-agent cornerback Asante Samuel and speedy rookie receiver DeSean Jackson lag because of the time they missed while nursing hamstring injuries?
I see the Eagles as a team in transition. We heard through most of last year the QB was going to be traded, but here he is, back for another year. I think the Eagles will struggle to keep up in a tough NFC East, but they've proved me wrong many times before. I never count this team out, Andy Reid always seems to find a way to win.
