  1. The mock drafts all go different directions after only a few picks in. The way I look at is , even if a guy is projected #1, you should have him rated because you never know what other teams are doing.. I have seen mock drafts where they get Mike Williams(that would be nice) as far as trading down... if you have 5 guys all rated very close, and you can move down without a big drop and pick up an extra pick, then it makes sense. If a few of those desperate teams jump up for a QB, the Eagles could have a very good pick. Between RB, WR, and CB I can come up with roughly 10 what I would call top tier players, Top D line talent in there too so they should have an impact player right off the bat in a position of need. I do think the talent level drops off a bit after mid first round, but the Eagles are in position to grab one of the top tier guys. Still some good talent in the second round, I think that will be a round of steals , the round one talent that falls to 2. Injury or off field issues can land you some very good players. They say 3 starters make a good draft, I could see that here.

  3. Last year the Eagles faced 3 teams coming off bye weeks(2 division rivals), and this year there are none, and they Eagles face Dallas coming off of their own bye week. If they can start out strong with the 2 away games, they could have a really good season.
  4. Ross is a pretty good rout runner besides being a burner, but think a reach at 14. I think there is enough talent at WR,CB,RB in this draft that they don't need to reach with the first pick at all.
  5. As much as I think the biggest immediate need is CB, I see no reason to NOT take a top WR, or RB it they are there at 14. (jeffrey is a one year deal, sproles plans to retire after next season)

  7. Great article, love the dogs. Can't wait for the season.
  8. They posted the opponents for 2017 season on NFL.com, but since took it down or moved it... anyway...Excited to see the actual schedule, and ready for the Eagles to dominate. GO EAGLES!
  9. Excited to see who they add in the draft, but this roster already looks better on paper than last years. Last year wasn't a bad roster either though, they were better than 7-9 record, but need to get them close games. I think they can take the NFC East Will see from there.
  10. Here way ahead of time, but Hey Carson, I grew up an Eagles fan, but ended up in Minot, you should try deer hunting in PA, they got bigger ones than the Mule deer out here. I, like many Eagles fans are hoping you have a great year!! Best of luck, GO EAGLES!!!!!
  11. There's NO COMPARISON between Doug & Chip,whatsoever! I'm really excited for what may lie ahead and I think it's just as much a 'hope' factor as it is my conscience making me feel this way. Plus on top of that,that there are several national analysts (observers in some cases to me) chirping about the Birds. I respect Sal,he tells it like it is! This also says something about Coach Pederson-two of this year's new coaches - Los Angeles' Sean McVay and San Francisco's Kyle Shanahan - have consulted with Pederson about the transition from coordinator to the man in charge, per Paolantonio. Please give me a Super Bowl B4 I leave Earth! ⚡GO EAGLES!⚡ no chip was a total wreck , he cast away all the talent he could and tried to win on scheme alone. trying to prove he was a genius, he kind of proved to be a moron. Pederson made some rookie mistakes, being a bit too aggressive instead of just getting points. I hope he learned from his mistakes as any rookie should. Let's see what happens with Lane in there all year, and with Alshon, and Torrie. I have the same argument for him as I have for Wentz, ..... they lost 6 games by 1 score , a couple less penalties, a couple less dropped passes, etc. this team could have easily made the playoffs last year.
  12. I think Coach made as many rookie mistakes as Carson. There is a fine line between brave and stupid, going for it 2x when well within field goal range, failing and ultimately losing the game by 1 point stings a bit. I like many other Eagles fans hope he learned more from his rookie year than any player.
  13. I was never all that big on Marcus Smith(still hopeful though), but I loved the selection of Agholar at the time. Coming out of college he looked amazing, had slick ways of getting open, and wasn't noted for dropped passes. I hope the Vets like Jeffrey help this kid out, he really does have great potential. Joe Walker is one I am interested in seeing this year too. He looked like a very physical linebacker, who could make you pay up the middle. What happened to Blake Countess (i get the feeling i am spelling that wrong)?
  14. keep Lane off the Juice :-)
  15. I am thinking he is pretty much a camp arm.
