  • Dixon has a very interesting history

    http://phillysportsdaily.com/eagles/...antonio-dixon/

    Summary. Homeless, mom was 17 when her mom died. Had no support system. Dad was a drug dealer in jail. He was dyslexic and couldn't read until 6th grade. Has real bad stuttering problem. Worked his ass off. Undrafted Skins signed. Dropped. Eagles picked up. And he looks awesome last two games.

      Yeah, that would be awesome if he can keep it up. We haven't had an actual DT that can collapse the pocket for a long time. I'm sure he's going to be rotated in even when Bunkley returns.

Although we pretend we’re empiricists — our views dictated by nothing but the facts — we’re actually blinkered, especially when it comes to information that contradicts our theories." - Jonah Lehrer

        Love his story, but his interviews are painful. Let him do his talking on the field.
