Why get all bugged out about the no-name signees?!!! If you "recall" we've got a terrible secondary and he's filling spots for the OTA's so there is competition. Has nothing to do with player draft. It's also a signal to current players you better get ready to compete or "we'll dump your butt" for even a no-name guy. Not necessary at this point to consult with the new HC about adding BODIES to huge off-season roster.
Just a reminder, it's Lurie who picks the HC, not Roseman or Smolensky. I like the really good candidates they have on their interview list.

Hope you're wrong on Cinci. We need them to lose so Zimmer can come and get started hiring his staff here.

#1 The eagles will only be as good as the defensive coordinator they bring in. Jim Johnson proved the importance of an exceptional D-Coordinator, and almost every struggling team that is trying to make a come back is doing so through the defense. I also know that many D-Coordinators don't make great head coaches (Mike Nolan in SF, Ray Rhodes, etc) but I don't believe that to always be the case. I'd love to bring in a Mike Nolan or Gus Bradley as D-Coordinator, but that seems like a pipe dream.
#2 Picking another high-risk, high-reward coach is not going to lead us to success. We may still be in the "excellence" zone, but I, for one, think Chip Kelly will not be a super bowl winner, wherever he goes.
#3 We should not pick someone simply because they work well with Howie Roseman and crew. While I agree with many of Howie's draft picks of last season (especially Kendricks), I don't believe we should be tailoring our selections to the staff that remains in Philly. We need a fresh start, and a new approach. I'd love Jon Gruden, but I'm not sure about Jay Gruden.
#4 The most important assistant coach spot we need to fill is O-Line coach (outside of the coordinators). Castillo is gone, Mudd is gone, we need another great O-line coach, theyve been good (in spite of the play calling from Andy and Marty last year, and the injuries to the O-Line)
#5 We need to cut ties with Mornhinwheg, April, and possibly Bowles (although a demotion may be enough for him).
#6 We need to keep Tommy Brasher
#7 We should be ready and willing to trade any and all of the following players: Vick, DeSean Jackson, Asomugha, Coleman (thought I don't know who'd take him). These guys are not critical to our success, and we could add an important piece through moving them elsewhere. DRC needs to stay, he showed his potential a couple times last year....if we actually work on getting good safeties, he will be great as our #1 corner.
#8 Our offense must be ready to run the ball. If we can fix Bryce Brown's fumbling issues, we have a lethal 1-2 punch at RB. We should rely on that, and an upgraded defense to win next year.
#9 We should re-sign Brian Rolle. The sky was the limit for this guy, he was cut prematurely, especially after being the best linebacker on the team in 2011. A foolish, short-sighted cutting resulted in a LB core that was eventually exposed. The 3rd spot in the LB core is still wide open. Kendricks, Ryans, and Rolle would be great....but if they aren't willing to pick Rolle back up, they should get someone better for that 3rd LB spot.

Brasher is a good D-line coach but he's 70 years old and probably won't fit into the plans of the next coach.

He (Lurie or Roseman) is signing 'no name' players to fill the roster because its necessary for the Eagles? How else can you find a diamond in the rough? The Eagles will sign bigger names later because most big names are still on other playoff teams' rosters?
Is that what you meant to say? And are you talking about Lurie or Roseman signing no name players? That does actually make a difference.
Proofread a little before you post so the rest of us can understand what you're trying to say.
