It's Been a Pleasure Watching You, B-West

It was Brian Westbrook's kick return for a touchdown against the Giants on October 9th, 2003 which marked the pivot point for the current Eagles franchise success. The outcome of most every game in the 6 years since has been determined based on Westbrook's success.

No, B-West hasn't retired, but for his health's sake he should seriously consider it.

Brian, not Donovan McNabb, was the one positive and reliable aspect of the Eagles offense during his tenure. His talent as a running back, wideout, and kick returner, was matched only by his intelligence for the game. Not too surprising, the Villanova grad seemed destined to be an overachiever.

It's truly been a pleasure watching you play Brian - the best running back in Eagles history.
