Quotable: Asomugha Says Eagles’ Goal Is to Finish 12-4

Oct 13, 2011, 11:02 AM EDT

Philadelphia Eagles CB Nnamdi Asomugha spoke to D.C. reporters ahead of Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, releasing his and his teammates startling goal.

And you folks call me delusional…

Nnamdi Asomugha, speaking to D.C. reporters via conference call ahead of Sunday’s divisional tilt with the Washington Redskins, responded to a question about the Eagles’ tough start with a startling proclamation:

“The only people who knew that this thing wasn’t going to be a perfect, well-oiled machine overnight are the people that are here. The criticism is going to come from the people who think that all you have to do is snap a finger and this thing is a perfect winning deal, and that’s not the way it is… We’re 1-4. By the end of the season, our goal is to be 12-4.

12-4? I think most fans would be happy if they start with 2-4.

Obviously the Eagles are still in the mix, and their goal should be to win every week, so I suppose Nnamdi’s statement isn’t that outrageous. An 11-game winning streak is a lofty objective in the NFL though, and whatever happened to taking it one game at a time?

H/t SB Nation.
