Anthony is on a distinguished road

History strongly militates against the Eagles drafting a running back in the first round, as they haven't done such a thing since 1986! (Keith Byars).

But they nonetheless have a chance to put themselves in sync (did I really say that?) with prevailing realities by drafting Chris Wells if he's still available at #21. Surely the Lurie/Banner/Reid triumvirate has heard of names like Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, Darren McFadden and Matt Forte - not to mention Brandon Jacobs, who of course they could have drafted four years ago? Big backs are so "in" these days; will the Eagles finally get with it, or will they insist on continuing to be the Don Quixote of the NFL, forever tilting at windmills?
Patriotism is the Achilles heel of the American liberal
