Correll Buckhalter, we hardly knew ye

The success of Correll Buckhalter in the Philadelphia Eagles backfield in 2003 made then-holdout Duce Staley seem expendable. Thanks to a torn patellar tendon in his right knee, Buckhalter didn’t play in 2004. Now, it appears the same injury will keep him out of action in 2005.

He’s not going to recover from this, folks. Tim Couch will be playing in the NFL again before Correll Buckhalter.

Perhaps the Eagles and Bears could discuss a trade. How about rookie holdout Cedric Benson for backup QB Mike McMahon and next year’s first-round draft pick? Someone ought to be thinking about these things, people…
