As the Eagles continue to identify head-coaching candidates and work the interview process, I'd like to change the conversation and talk about this, that and a few other things about your 2013-and-beyond football team ...

Yeah! We signed Nick Miller (another one of BG's boys) to a two year contract!!

He's been given up on by two teams already but, at a mere 5'9", he fits the mold of Eagle receivers.

Hey, wait a sec-who's steering this ship?? Why are we signing another Hobbitt?

I also find point 9 above interesting. DeMarco Sampson has been brought in to compete with Cunningham.

Evidently, Evergreen is fed up with Cunninghamtheman's posts.

Dave...you don't draft an inside backer with no pass rush skills with the 4th pick...leave it alone.

I wanted to watch the game last night to have a look at Manti Te'o against good competition before I  decided if he was what we are looking for. Unfortuately you only get one chance to make a good impression in that kind of environment. He did not make a good one mainly because he had a lot of chances to make tackles and didn't get the job done. If fact he would have fit right in with the current defense of the Eagles but hopefully not the future one.  I feel the same way about Jay Gruden . I watched the Bengals playoff game and was not inpressed with his play calling or his gameplan in general. Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer however, had his players ready to play defense. I would give him an interview unless Bradley knocks Mr. Larie's socks off. I will be keeping my eyes on Vic Fangio's defense this weekend when the Packers and 49er's play. He is on my list as well up until now!

and that is hard to do with us. You might say 10 of our 53 are good.

BG, Nick MIller is that kid out of Southern Utah that you were always going on about.

He's an Eagles now!!!!!! He's here to help return the one ring to Mordor.

We have DTs that can penetrate and put pressure on the QB now we need a DT that can help and be a force against the run.....I won't matter who are Lb are if are DL can't do there job up front we will struggle vs the run

3D... did you see my new and updated mock draft I went back to wanting Star with are 4th overall pick

My New UPDATED Mock Draft
We still trying to trade Djax for a 2nd round pick(even if it is unlikely)

1st-Star Lotulelei(after watching the BCS Championship it just showed me again how important it is to control the line Te'o will be no help if are DL can't do there job Star should improve are Run from Day 1)
2nd-Xavier Rhodes/Desmond Trufant/Jordon Poyer(We need CB help everyone knows it)
2nd-Barrett Jones(this guy is nice and could start from day one at RT plus provides depth at G and C both of which he played in college)
3rd-DaRick Rodgers(after trading Djax will need another WR rodgers will provide a big strong WR that can make plays)
4th-Zeke Motta/Bacarri Rambo(really just draft a S this is a pretty decent class other top guys might fall down in the 4th never know)
5thJoesph Fuaria/Michael Williams(will provide a big TE that will help down in the RZ and push Celek)
6th-Michael Mauti(I really like this kid good leader,made plays when healthy, Think he would be to good to pass up this late the draft could be a really good LB)
6th-Devin Taylor(will add a nice big DE to provide depth for this team)
7th-BPA

FA
Byrd(I think is the best S hitting the FA market)
LaRon Landry(if can't land Byrd I think Landry would be a great 2nd option he would provide a physical presence to this Eagles D something we have been missing)
Brandon Albert/Adam Levitre(either one would be nice add a nice starter to are OL)

Also I think we need to resign DRC( I think with the right HC/DC he could be good)

I hear Barrett Jones is having surgey on a fracture he has could really hurt his draft stock we might be able to steal him even later in the draft either way I want him

I think a rookie QB like jordon Rodgers would be worth giving a shot as an UDFA he isn't his brother by any means but he looked alright at Vanderbilt

Although I like Byrd he isn't even in the same ballpark as Goldson. Goldson looks like the best safety in football right now.
