[News] Expect Minimal Bang In Free Agency

94 posts in this topic

Bloody... but under my scenario all we are losing is the 15th pick to pick up a franchise QB when Vick leaves next year (and make no mistake he is leaving next year)... we weren't going to select anyone to protect Vick with the 15th pick anyway (that was going to be a pick for the D)... Djax leaves, but we sign Colston as a FA, along with either Nicks or Mathis for G, and Mario Williams and one of the FA MIKE's for the D... it solves everything PLUS we get the franchise QB...

..and we have our QB for years to come with at least a year of learning from Vick and QBs coach..... okay, so let me summarize:

1. Starting lineup at offensive skill positions: QB: Vick, RB: Shady, WR1 Colston, WR2: Maclin, TE: Celek, Backup QB: RG3

2. Starting lineup for DEF: LCB: DRC, RCB: Nnamdi, DEs: TC and Mario Williams/Babin (threw this in just for fun), DTs: Jenkins, Patterson and draftee, LBs: Lofton (or Ruud) Tulloch and one of our own, SS: Coleman/Jarret, FS: Allen.

Did I miss anything?

Wibi... just that our Oline stays the same or we pick up Nicks. We could also pick up Hill or Kendricks in the 2nd round.

I thought coming into this season that our #1 priority going in 2012 was QB. I posted at the beginning that our 1st pick in the draft would be QB. Guess SI's Peter King are now entertaining the possibility of RG111 in Philly. hahahaha " That is OLD NEWS around here." this TRINI Eagle fanatic has ALREADY been saying this for several weeks... I became even more convinced this could be the play... after RG111 posted Vick like Combine Stats. The very UNUSUAL... Very public... Eagles RG111 interview to me... screamed "MISDIRECTION" it screamed the Eagles with their new 100million QB would be the last team to make a play for RG111. Exactly the way the Eagles want people to think. KINDA like the Cowgals and Y'ets and the whole football world thinking Nnamdi was going to one of those teams... That Howie Roseman is a talent. The Reid's mantra in Philly... It all begins with the QB. Most here having watched Big Red operate for over a decade... KNOW... Reid and the Eagles established reputations of unpredictability, perceived as a very Tight Lipped Organization... ESPECIALLY during Free Agency and the Draft. Two very highly touted " Already Crowned Franchise QB's " are in this year's draft...No other team can offer the combination of Draft picks AND established Elite Pro Bowl caliber players like Asante and/or DJax as part of a package. and NOT Destroy their Team if the gave up players of that calibre. The Eagles have few needs some could be satisfied in Free Agency, while still armed with numerous picks in this years draft, and the money especially if one or both of these guys are traded to get anyone they want... This RG111 play has Andy's name written all over it. If this is to be Reid's last year, he would want to leave the team in good straits. Hmmmm I really wanted that Ricky Williams guy instead of DMac, in HINDSIGHT Reid made the right call then. We Shall See.

So you are the Rams. Cleveland offers picks #4 & 22. Eagles offer you pick 15 & DeSean. Considering pick #4 is 11 earlier than pick #15... DeSean's trade value would have to be worth top 10 value. But lets say Cleveland won't do it, but Washington offers pick #6 and their 2nd rounder (pick 39) Pick #6 is still 9 picks earlier than pick 15, so DeSean's value in that case would still have to be mid to late first round. My guess = if the Browns or Redskins want RGIII, the Rams will take their offers unless the Eagles throw in a lot more. The possibility of getting a franchise QB for those two teams should cause them to up the anti over whatever the Eagles come up with, and I would also assume the Rams don't see DeSean's value as high as a 1st round pick? As for Vick, besides the assumption that Luck & RGIII would be more desirable to the other teams, the Eagles would take a huge cap hit in trading Vick, so I dont see it.

Joe... come on... Cleveland isn't giving up that (that's the Rams trying to drive up the price)... as for 15 vs 6... iffin I'm the Rams I'd prefer 15 to 6 for the money they save and STILL have multiple options for the D to chose from... and as for a 2nd rounder vs Djax... how many 2nd rounders suk??? Djax is a proven commodity. I know who I'd rather have.

ATV, you watch any NFL network? Mayock, Baldi & co were talking about it yesterday while the Phils were playing their spring training game. The opinion was that if you are the Rams, you need to take a solid blue chip in this year's draft to build around Bradford. They spoke about dropping out of the top ten for the Rams and said they don't see the value there. DeSean would have to have a long term deal in place or it wouldn't make sense for the Rams. Cleveland was said to be a no-brainer to give up those picks, "it's why you made the Julio Jones trade last year to put yourself in this position to land a franchise QB" was the opinion of the panel. They also said if Washington wouldn't offer pick #6 along with 2nd round and other picks (possibly a 1st rounder next year) they would be foolish. This is a QB league, and we are talking about teams that have been brutal with the true sense of urgency to make the move. Plus the new CBA makes these early picks more cap friendly. I doubt RGIII will be an Eagle unless the farm is truly mortgaged.

AH.... The RG3 dream again ...No way the Washington ORG. (if Cleveland doesnt get there first) lets him get away.. Who do they have at QB? Vick is the last 'real' QB of the Reid era IMO.

There really aren't too many pieces we are missing. Almost everything we should do is upgrading or adding depth.
