Let's take count of what's missing. No Michael Vick. No LeSean McCoy or DeSean Jackson and, oh yeah, the offensive line doesn't resemble how the Eagles thought it would look this season. The offense has another huge challenge at Dallas ...

>>DDD: wow. You really think team has packed it in. I have optimism about Eagles youngsters. Dallas is a shell and could well come apart,too. Hope you are wrong,but given the Eagles DBs focus...400 yards is conceivable.
In Los Angeles today...a few more cars and folks that on the Res.

Woody...we have lost 7 straight...i don't see another win on our schedule. We might be the worst team in the NFL.

why would we want to win any more games? We ruined our season, lets get a high draft pick at least. We all know we are going to completely rebuild this team from the ground up, and we are going to need lots of draft picks to do that. We need a WR. We need a QB, we need a complete new secondary. Our O-Line will be fine once everyone recovers from injuries. We need a new TE. The only area we are ok is at RB and PK.
Also, I am praying the cowboys win because who wants to see the NYG go to the playoffs AGAIN!? I'd rather dallas or Washington win the division than the giants.
I am so excited for this off season cant see what Coach [Kelly, Gruden, Cowher] does with this team. Lets hope we lose the rest of our games.

I predict we draft a WR in the first round.. a real stud. Hopefully grab a safety in the second round. Perhaps trade for a more physical TE in the league (how come the giants were able to get Martellus Bennett but we stick with stone hands celek?) And, ready for this?... ALEX SMITH as our QB next year. I would be very happy with that. The guy took the 49ers to the NFC championship last season once he finally had a head coach who knew what he was doing. Lets get Alex Smith, and not let Howie Rosman have any decision making ability in the draft.

This team isn't going to be completely rebuild and if we get Kelly the O will look the same not much will be done and he will probably want to keep Vick as his QB. On D LBs r set(could upgrade WILL) DL will be alright with the wide 9 gone(might need a DE for depth reasons),CB will need to be addressed hopefully we keep DRC and get someone to play next him him, S is the biggest need i believe we need 2 new guys.

3D... did u see KC win and they lucky in OT vs a HCless Saints team and no Vitt they could easily be winless

>>mikey: Tom Donahoe works for Birds. He and Cowher couldn't work together at Steelers when Tom was GM. Think Jay Gruden might be more likely than Jon.

Honestly think young Birds will pound Romo. Dallas fans fed up with Jerry Jones. Could be wonderful evening to see Jerry in flames.

93...there is no way we pick up MV's salary next year. Unless he gives back major $$$.

And no Alex smith didn't do **** that SF D is what got them there good ST play and a strong running game tell me again what did ALex Smith do in the NFC title game???? That is like saying Trent dilfer got the ravens to the 2000 SB and won it

Alex Smith would be good if we had a defense like the niners and a good running game, there is a reason he lost his job in San Fran though.

93...arguing who is worst us or the Chiefs...shows the futility of our season. We are both bad teams.

Woody...i hope you are right...and we pound them. I don't see it.

>>DDD: agreed. Eagles have really struggled. AR is a mere figurehead and flak-catcher. MM is the assistant HC. Sadly, he is a non-leader. Given the tenor of Lurie's preseason comments..coaches were made into lamer ducks. Lurie should have cleaned house after dream team 1.0. 2012 is really on Lurie and his unwillingness to address the ineffective job in 2011. Lurie indirectly precipitated the Kotite era death spiral. After that, he really stepped back behind the scenes and built his stadium.

this is how i see it if Philly gets a top 5pick. We trade down hopefully get 2 1st rounders maybe try getting a deal with the rams or get a 1st rounder and i high 2nd round pick.

1st round-I'd love to see a Big #1 WR or S(personally i'd probably go Keenan Allen)
1st/2nd round- S/WR(Kenny Varracco)
2nd round- OL/QB(Ej Manuel)
3rd round-DE/OL (best OL)

FA- i would look at Byrd he is a really good S.

Woody...again, i give you credit. You called this bad season from the start, and winning the 4 games at the end cost us, because we probably should have cleaned house at that point. You nailed this mess.

Is anybody else having problems with this site today? Keep getting thrown off the site. I have tried other sites, and don't have the problem. Which leads me to believe it is not my internet connection.

BG...Would love to see a big wide receiver drafted with big time talent and speed. Love the kid from Baylor, Terrance Williams, but would look real hard at Justin Hunter from Tennesee. Would also look real hard at Tony Jefferson from Oklahoma and Kenny Vaccarro for Safety.
