You're the backup fullback.  That makes you the 54th man.

Generally, I don't use "we."  The exception, though, is when I'm talking about the Eagles to fans of other teams.  It just helps the conversation.

Since the team, city, and fans are united by the "power of one", technically we should be using "I".  :-*

I try to not use "we" in this context...but sometimes I fail to control myself.

When I hear someone saying "we" about a team, the cynical part of me thinks that I really need to get into marketing, because people are farging idiots who deserve nothing more than to be taken.  Either marketing or religion.  One of the two.

Fine.  But if you're not giving a reach around then I'm not pushing back any more.

That's like saying you can't decide between being a garbage man or a sanitation worker.
