There was energy and exhilaration in the air as the Eagles walked into the locker room on September 30 after beating the Giants, and anything was possible for the remainder of 2012 ...

DDD>congrats on number 317. Also, my STD: Eagles 13 and Giants 27. Vick fumbles twice and mccoy gets our only TD. Defense gets gassed out bc they are on the field a lot but get one fumble recovery due to a brandon graham forced fumble.
BG. never thought of star as pat williams and yes that would be great if he could take on double teams. More importantly he can help against the run so yea im on board with him again, but still would not mind teo.

I truly believe that there will be a few teams thinking of trading up for certain players. I could even see us trading back twice in the first rd... Id like to stay where we are and draft a great player but i cant shake this feeling. I guess id rather that happen then them grab a QB with our top 5 pick. That to me would be the worst thing we could do

I could see them going after warmack (G) if they only trade back once. I think milliner will end up at the lions if that happens b4 we pick...

Star n Cox would be like the Williams Wall of the Vikes.. Star (Pat) n Cox (Kevin) mentioned it before C'MON MAN!.. If Star n Luke are gone before Eagles pick i can see them trading back.. Then again Eagles win this week they could be selecting from 7th spot.. So id take BPA from there if thats the scenario.. How about Vick traded to the Jets for WR Stephen Hill..

yes...about 8 teams could wind up 5 and 11...us included. 4 and 12 is much clearer path to top 5.

DDD, Hope you have enjoyed Christmas and will enjoy the New Year and that goes for all the EAGLE posters. Now, regarding this Sunday, the Giants will crush us 31 to 14 and Vick will prove to us that he has to play somewhere else next year! I don't hate Vick, even though I've always loved my dogs and horses, and I actually feel sorry for him.He was so overhyped he couldn't possibly meet the expectations. At least he didn't come up short on the money side of things.

>>OldBill: I concur with you evaluation and expectation. Will post my STD tomorrow. I think Vick's agent need to get him NON-FOOTBALL gigs: reality tv, info-mercials...anything. He is like a boxer that has taken too many hard fights--but doesn't know when to hang to up.

>>snake: believe Eagles should try to package Djax in a trade. He'd play well with Stafford & Megatron in my opinion. Lions MIGHT want to reload at DL a bit. I think DJax would be a great asset to a team with an establish #1 WR and he plays #1.5...defenses cannot double cover BOTH. Oakland might be a fit,too. I think Eagle MUST leverage the draft or trade for DJax...he isn't a #1 in Philly.

Jwood: I'm ok with trading desean especially since we cant use him over the middle but i think it be better to try and trade nnmadi to the lions which is a need for them... What do you think we can get though???

Asante only got us a 7th round pick and he played pretty well so Nnamdi at his age and contract would probably be around the same maybe get lucky and land a 5th or 6th rounder but I don't see anything higher for him.

Djax I couldn't see witht he Lions they have a very similar WR already there in titus young.....Teams like Maimi,Bills,Cincy,Jags few other teams he would be better fit and wanted more but I agree we need to try and trade him

Nnandi will be worth nothing via trade if teams have a brain n believe there eyes n see he is what he is.. 7th rounder maybe for Mr. High Top Fade

>>DDD: not seeing much "good" come from the last game. Both safeties are 7th rounders and very undersized ( except heart) and are keepers as back-ups and ST specialists. Clearly Harbor and Evan Moore as lost causes at TE. We have seen Dixon play for the DL many times--and all concluded that he wasn't as good as Landri, Jenkins, Cox, Thornton or Patterson...so why sign him up again? Tapp and Hunt aren't going to surprise anyone in this game. Casey Mathews? Akeem Jordan? Both are known guys in 2012...as back-ups.Maybe we'll see Curtis Marsh? Or Boykin in a new location?

One might HOPE FOR a game that uses the three headed monster RB principles,but am not holding my breath on MM. Don't expect to see any 3 TE sets or that many 2 TE sets as Moore isn't much of an add...compared to say, Jake Scott. Not expecting Demetress Bell to wake-up and play...not enough rushing to validate his athleticism and underwhelming pass protection. Kelly and Dunlap will be turnstiles..and Dallas Reynolds will get trucked by the DL at least once. Shady will be underused with 15 carries and Brown and Lewis get 1 or 2 each (calls run Brown laterally and Lewis on dives). Vick will pass over 50 times. There will be turn-overs.

Why isn't Djax going anywhere????? Nobody on this team will be safe with a new HC..... Djax is an overpaid injury prone 1trick pony but offers good trade bait it is very realistic that the eagles try and move him to see what they can get....plus WR have been better in my opinion since he has been out and they won't cost anywhere near as much

>>snake: Nnamdi's only excuse is that the Philadelphia team was obviously awful--and claim he was poorly played and coached...for 2 full seasons. There is a shred of truth. He showed almost no leadership and I don't know why any team would want him...unless he comes CHEAP. Every team wants to upgrade its DBs. In the right scheme, Nnamdi might be "great" or nearly great again...but he'll come cheap having shown so AVERAGE for 2 seasons.

>>Freak: I think Vick is a CUT. Eagles will swallow very hard and live with the dead money in 2013. Who'd trade for him at his SALARY? He isn't a legit 16 game starter..and he is way way too expensive.

BG - WR playing better good for them they should be playing better this whole f'n team should be playing better! DJax aint the problem.. One trick pony n injury prone C'MON MAN the guy was playing balls out this year.. Any other team will be thinking Eagles are crazy trading a playmaker like DJax.. Last year DJax was bit of a drama but his situation was understandable.. I hope DJax is bleeding green for years to come n proves you wrong bro..

maybe maybe not jwood. he did do ok at times when he pressed the WR. But u cant deny the times he was getting burned. nnmadi might be getting slow. We should try and see more of marsh this last game

Wood - I think Eagles have till the end of the Superbowl to decide if they keep or cut him coz he gets his bonus money if im not mistaken.. If hes not in the Eagles plans for the new HC next year id hope they will take the gamble sign the bonus n trade him n March for something at least..
