|Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha says the Eagles are primed to make noise in the 2012 season.|
"The reason why I liked it to an extent was there was accountability," Asomugha said. "Whereas in [Oakland], 8-8 was, 'Shoot, we reached 8-8!'"
During workouts this spring, Asomugha has been huddling up the cornerbacks and repeating the mantra, "Last year was about growth. This year is about showing what we've become."
"I think about how much sweeter it's going to be now," Asomugha said, "when we do it after what we went through."
Asmougha, the transplanted West Coaster, could have been speaking for Eagles fans who haven't experienced a championship for 52 years. He may not be from here, or even fit in, but if he delivers, the fans will love him for it.
