Electrifying rookie cornerback and return specialist Brandon Boykin will definitely be a player to watch in this Training Camp. Throughout the season, he will be writing a blog for PhiladelphiaEag...

Space Ace-This kid is going to do alot more than make this team.
Boykin has a really goos shot at unseating Joselio Hanson.
I think he will be an integreal part of our defense.
He will be shutting down all those quick slot receivers, like Wes Welker.
This kids a beast with starter potential, maybe even get the rookie of the year if he's a good as advertized.

This kid should upgrade the slot position. Jose was a decent player for us but just does not have the athletic ability that Boykin offers. It is time for the youth to take over and earn the spor. Keep that thought cunninghamtheman.I am wiff you.

I'm still baffled we got a chance to grab Boykin in the 4th round.

STEAL.

Go Birds.

The fans were only heckling your choice of number. Some Samuel loyalists didn't like seeing him go and his number on another player. No worries.

I was excited with our draft this year including and especially Boykins and mcNutt (for late rounders). But he needed to use this blog to apologize for the kid he trucked at :37 of his video. And by kid I mean the kid was like 9 yrs old. Come on man!

Keep it up Boykin, you're doing a great job but you're still at the bottom of the depth chart if you know what I mean.

Hey, Brandon. Nex time you should ask Joselio about his new contract last year. Then once he gets all sad, tell him to carry your helmet.

I personally like the Keyshawn Johnson approach to the rookie scenario. I'm not carrying your helmet and I'm not singing no damn stupid songs. I'm not here for that. NEXT!

Speaking of Recievers, T.O. has yet another chance (Seahawks) to prove he has learned something after all the teamates he has thrown under buses. Which have some people scratching their heads after his recent situation with the (Arena League) Rangles. Wow, God is merciful. Three words T.O. - DON'T BLOW IT!! Anything on his buddy DMac?

Keep it up, double B! You'll be an awesome player and a force to be reckoned with on the field!
Fly, Boykin, Fly.... on the way to Vick-tory!
B-O-Y-K-I-N, BOYKIN.

P.S - That's Boykin with no 's' everyone. Just like Asante SamueL, not SamuelS.

Boykin is looking good. Hey anybody as impressed as me at Phillip Thomas? He looks pretty good O.J. better show he still got it. Thomas could be a sleeper. Plus, when is Colt Anderson coming back. We have special team players now. Where does he fit in.

Another good performance. Don't let your foot of the pedal... Fitzgerald, Floyd, Cruz, Nicks in the next two weeks. Should be a great test for the secondary.

The best kick-off returners: Devon Hester, Josh Cribbs, etc., have one common trait. They never pause or hesitate, they slash, always heading upfield with controlled recklessness. Look at your tape, almost every return you stop on your own before you are hit. Just an observation.

Kick returns is not only about the guy with the ball running. Its about the other men blocking for him and creating holes. Something we dont do well. Lets be an innovative team with creative plays to gain more yeards. The three men running holding hands strategy is getting old and lame.

The way Brown talk sounded like he was gonna have a career high day! Boykin played well. That last drive was tough, but it shouldn't have been that close of a game! Turnovers have been ruining this year! Without turnovers we could be 5-0 with them we could be 0-5. 3-2 is amazing to be with all of the turnovers, says a lot about the fight in this team. Last year they would've packed up shop early and went home. Still waiting and hoping to see them get it together.
