we dont knock it because it worksA day after announcing roster cuts, the Eagles signed the Jets’ recently discarded defensive tackle Kimo von Oelhoffen, ostensibly to provide some depth at defensive tackle.

Depth at defensive tackle is well and good, but I just think it’s nice to have someone on the roster who’s not afraid to do what it takes to win playoff games. I’m speaking, of course, of von Oelhoffen’s KillShot ™ on Carson Palmer in the 2005 Wild Card round, in which he rolled into Palmer’s knee and effectively ended the game (and perhaps kickstarted the Stillers’ Super Bowl run.

As I’ve discussed at length on my other web site, the KillShot is a tried and true tactic for winning NFL playoff games. It’s worked for the Ravens, the Panthers, and the Stillers, and there’s no reason it couldn’t work for the Birds as well. And now that the team has signed one of the KillShotting Arts’ grandest masters, I feel a whole lot better about the coming season.

(Or, it’s a terrible omen. One or the other.)
