Eagles fans send in new names for Wildcat

Posted: September 04, 2009

As expected, hundreds of Daily News readers sent e-mails yesterday with alternative names for the Eagles' "Wildcat" formation.

Among the most popular - "Screaming Eagle," "Talon," "Thunderbird," "Wild Bird," "Bird of Prey" and "Vicktory Formation."

Here are some others that caught our attention:

* Triple Threat, "because Vick can hand off, run or pass," Rashawn Prewitt, Glassboro
