  1. Past hour
  2. Still say we take Barnett to help sure up the D then work on O.
  3. @GENETIC-FREAK Not sure if you've seen it yet, McLaren's MCL32, season's getting closer.
  4. DWD, I have thread on him in IWTETG, having said that, he doesn't come without some concern, can be inconsistent at times and has a bit of an injury history. I agree though, he should come in cheaper than Stills and Jackson, might even turn into a better option.
  5. Today
  6. I think if you get a guy like Leary to sign you tell Kelce to take a pay cut or put Isaac Seumalo in at C and cut/trade Kelce. I think Seumalo is our future anyways and why not start now and save 3.8 mil this year. I think they hope Kelce can teach him to read defenses better this season but if he won't budge on his contract I pull the trigger the knowledge should come with time as well.
  7. The guys I want in FA are Kayvon Webster the guy can play just trapped behind some really good players. Johnthan Banks was a 2nd Rd pick played decently in 2013-14 105 tackles 7 ints 16 pbus in those 2 years but with the additions of Alterraun Verner and Hargreaves he was the odd man out plus 3 head coaches and D coordinators in 4 years didn't help. Jarvis Jones or Andre Branch good rotational pieces. Jared Odrick I think would compliment Cox and give us a nice inside pass rush. Markus Wheaton would be cheaper then Stills or Jackson and play the same roll. All these guys should come cheap and at least come in day 1 to compete for starting jobs if not have them outright. These are my cheap picks. I wouldn't mind adding Knile Davis either he has played decently when asked to carry the load. Maybe add a guard like Ron Leary and really lock up the interior oline for years. I think you could add all these players 25-30mil annually but if you end load a few or give bigger signing bonuses be around 17-20mil this year. Make a few cuts and we easily have room for that the draft and FA after the draft
  8. I wonder what this schedule is ranked... last year we had a tough schedule, The team's that were bad last season are unlikely to be less competitive .... Cards, Broncos, Chargers, Carolina will be in the mix we are playing some different style heavyweights .Raiders, Chiefs, Seahawks... woooooo. Funny thing, I want my Birds playing the best teams, playing their best. I'll take the easy ones too,whatever the schedule gives . That Early Bye wk changed us, hurt us last season. Hope we get a better position this upcoming season .
  9. No. Roseman could do the same thing, instead he wants to take the majority of the cap hit now instead of 2 to 3 years from now. It makes more sense to prolong the cap hits with players in their prime you intend on keeping in comparison to a player who is 35 who you are basically keeping for one more year. As for your second second sentence, no. The Cowboys started, if I am remembering correctly, around 8-9 million OVER the cap. The two restructures allowed them to be under the cap.
  10. Horrific NFL coach. 1 career pro bowler/ borderline HoF on the O-line (Peters) 1 guard at the very peak of his above average career (Mathis) 1 stud RB (McCoy) A bottom half of the league #1 WR who is fast (980 yards and 5 TD average is not special in any way) Those averages are close to single season highs of Thrash '01 (833 and 8) or Pinkston '02 (798 and 7) Garbage at WR2 and WR3 (Cooper and Avant) Two above average TEs (Celek and Ertz) Idiots think he was running with the 1989 49ers or something and he lucked into the 3rd highest rated QB season in history. He has started or played most of 10 games since 2013 excluding the crap Rams and has gone 8-2 in those games. The worst kind of scum is a fan who hates on a player for succeeding while a member of their team.
  11. No way! Definitely take the top receivers in the draft. This really doesn't even make sense to me. Trade for a slot receiver that you have to negotiate a contract with...when you have a slot receiver you have to negotiate with..having Ertz and Burton working the middle of the field. The speed would be welcome. BUT what is needed is an outside weapon. Struggling to get balance outside all of this past season. Honestly I wouldn't give up a 3rd rounder for Cooks.
  12. I would take a look at what Maclin wanted if he was released wouldn't pay more then 3 year 18 - 22.5 mil that's 6 - 7.5 I think he would be worth that.
  13. might be worth a look for training camp with a different DC in Schwartz... if you can get him for cheap, especially if Eagles take a CB in 1st or 2nd rd. he's gotta have a chip on his shoulder after getting benched for hargreaves.
  14. So you mean they are doing something we are not able to do. Their manipulation of the cap in those moves freed up more cap room than the Eagles have total cap room.
  15. You're talking about Brandin Cooks and no, I wouldn't trade our 1st round pick along with another pick for him. On top of that, I don't even think he's going to be traded. Give that man a cigar! Hard to say DC but I would have to "consider" a proven commodity over a rookie for the same draft pick. Especially a 23 year old veteran with those stats. Maybe the first round pick and either Barwin or Kendricks could get it done with the Saints. Of course that is if the Eagles are leaning WR with the first pick. If not, all bets are off. I'd take Cooks over anyone else available outside of the draft...dude is good. I would rather work something else out over giving up the 1st rd pick tho. But this dude is solid. his numbers speak, he's a baller that would elevate this offense. maybe Sproles could work some creole mojo on him. if only way to get him would be a 1st rounder and another player, then make another deal with someone to move up in Rd 2...grab the best CB or DE available.
  16. They aren't giving up any money, they are actually getting paid more upfront. Dallas is just manipulating the cap
  17. If Roseman wanted to restructure the contract, he would. In Dallas, they are just pushing the cap hits further down the years. Roseman doesn't want to do that with a 35 year old player who is nearly done his career. Roseman allegedly wanted Peters to cut his pay, not restructure.
  18. One situation couldn't be much further removed from the other. Peters has maybe 2-3 years left to make his money, plays for a team which isn't remotely close to contending for a championship and certainly won't be during the remainder of his time here, which will most likely be just this season. Smith and Frederick are just entering the prime of their careers, and will have plenty of time to make back that money plus a lot more. The Cowboys are legitimate title contenders, and might remain so for the foreseeable future. If I'm Jason Peters, I couldn't give a rat's a$$ if it looks good or bad for Roseman, and as far as the Eagles, he's been a good soldier, a leader, and solid player year in and year out since he arrived. I don't blame him even a little bit - if Roseman wants to release him, I'm sure there will be someone who would love to have him for a couple of years.
  19. You're talking about Brandin Cooks and no, I wouldn't trade our 1st round pick along with another pick for him. On top of that, I don't even think he's going to be traded. Give that man a cigar! Hard to say DC but I would have to "consider" a proven commodity over a rookie for the same draft pick. Especially a 23 year old veteran with those stats.

  20. Yesterday
  21. Never change, Redskins. Never change.
  22. Bucs have released Alterraun Verner.
  23. You're talking about Brandin Cooks and no, I wouldn't trade our 1st round pick along with another pick for him. On top of that, I don't even think he's going to be traded.
  24. Okay Eagles fans, since a lot of you want to take WR Mike Williams or WR Corey Davis with pick number 15 knowing the success rate for drafting wide receivers in the first round is around a 25% success rate since 1999, What would you do if you had a chance to obtain a veteran wide receiver by trading our first round draft pick for him plus another player or lower draft pick? This receiver is only 23 years old. Last year he had 1173 receiving yards with 8TD's and 6 receptions over 40 yards. In 2015 he had 1138 receiving yards with 9 TD's and 5 receptions over 40 yards. Who is this guy? Take a guess!
