[News] Around Whom Will D Be Re-Built?

343 posts in this topic

We need to build this D around Ryans who will be r leader and get players around him to help. Draft Utah DT to help open up things on the DL and provide the big run stuffer to pair with Cox. I'd look for a CB like Xavier Rhodes in the 2nd round to give a big physcial pressence on the outside. Then at S draft Matt Elam or if we r lucky Kenny Vacarro in the 3rd round

Next yr if everything would fall into place I would like the D to look something like this

LDE-Graham

DT-Cox

DT-Star(Utah DT)

RDE-Cole

SAM-Chaney

MLB-Ryans

WILL-Kendricks

LCB-DRC

SS-Kenny Vacarro

FS-Bryd

RCB-Xavier Rhodes

Slot CB-Boykin

Other FA I wouldn't mind looking into Terrance Knighton(Jags DT),Sean Smith(Miami CB)

I like it BG! Not familiar with your draft picks, but I trust you've done your homework there. If they are really good, you won't get both of them though. Ryans is DEFINITELY a keeper!

Senhorcook....I did answer ur question about Bama I don't believe they have a S coming out this season....

To be honest if Colt Anderson keeps up his play I truely believe he should atleast be given a shot to start next season.....

maybe I am getting alittle ahead of myself but I think Anderson could be an Eric Weddle type of S for us

Dave, really? Nate Allen gets a pass with you for his absolutely pathetic, and I mean pathetic, performances all season long? NO WAY! C'mon Dave. I went to three games and watched the safeties heavily and Nate Allen was lost on the field more than any defensive player I have ever watched. Coleman bit hard against the run often, but Allen simply has very little football IQ. I won't give him a pass. Find some new safeties immediately!

Anderson has outplayed both Allen and Coleman. Agreed!

But out of fairness, outplaying Allen and Coleman isn't asking much.

Colt of course has outplayed them that is easily but he has played good for any standard of S.... he has been aggressive at the line and great in coverage. Did u see him contest with Aj Green he almost came down the pick that was impressive AJ has what 5-6inches atleast on Colt

I loved Colts play vs the run two weeks ago. It was awesome!

If Allen stays on the field the Eagles may as well blitz him on every play since he can't cover and that way he won't have to figure anything out.

BG: Raiders won so that helps us if we want to try and get Star but in order for us to stay in contention in getting a high pick we would need to lose the remaining 2 games... If we start winning you might as well consider Star a raider

Dave: We need to see more of Marsh to see what were going to do at CB in the offseason

The problem with that is he's afraid of contact. He's complete garbage.

Spuds, really? Graham and Allen came out and year. Both got injured same year. The only one proving his worth right now is Graham. Allen can't seem to play at a high level. Let Anderson and Sims start the last two games, draft Elam from Florida to compete with them and go after Byrd real hard. Draft Star or the other big nasty from Ohio State, draft a corner, preferably Xavier Rhodes, and then stock up on OL and DL with lower picks. If the Iggles don't make a hard push for Byrd then there is something seriously wrong with the FO.

Even I can't pick on Spuds -- he's just trying to find that silver lining.

I'm just glad we stopped hearing about the terrible excuse that the Eagles missed the pre-season last year as their reason for stinking up the joint. No excuses this year.

I never thought an 8-8 team can get worse....embarrassed as a fan ...

Don't under estimate the higher draft pick.....

Team needs a top safety, dont know which round you find him, but we need a TOP Safety prospect!

I say keep Ryans & pay him. We haven't had a solid MLB for years here. Cole's time might be up, I like the guy, but we got depth at DE and we need to spend $ elsewhere. Not sure about Allen, but maybe he sticks around as a backup and we grab a S off FA or in the draft. Everyone else on this list deserves a roster spot imo.

Dave WHERE IS NNAMDI ON THIS LIST???

Oh right....he better not be around here next season so I guess he's not worth mentioning, certainly not as someone to "build" around.

I only see 3 guys on this list that should be an eagle next year. Graham, Cox, Ryans. The others can take a hike, maybe Kendricks will make the cut but none of the rest jump out as a person you want to build a defense around.

Dave... you must be high. To even mention Nate Allen in this article is an insult to the collective intelligence of true Eagles fans. Nate Allen is a monumental bust and everyone knows it. He can't cover, he can't tackle, he looks completely lost. In my opinion, this defense needs to release about 50% of its current starters and go from there.

Boykin does he is willing tackling CB who has been improving each week he will become a fine CB. Also Cedric Thorton provides gret depth I don't know as a starter but a rotational guy yes. Trent Cole is aging but he provides a vetern leadership plus he still the best damn run defender on r DL we can always get another DE to help against the pass rush they aren't that hard to find(vinny Curry might be that person)
