Resign Akeem, Dorenbos and Scott. Place 1st or 2nd round do tender/ franchise tag Cromartie. Let Tape, Landri and useless tackle Dunlap walk...too much wasted money on backups with Tapp and Dunlap. Plus it helps our salary cap with both off the books. Sign a solid safety to relegate Coleman to the bench, give Maclin his deal. Then address the rest in the draft....seems simple enough

restructure nmdai contract and move him to safety or let him go. trade vick immediately or let him go. Cromartie can not tackle and is inconsistent so I would look at a corner from our roster to replace him and for crying out assemble a coaching staff.

Sign Dorenbros, Jordan and Scott. Restructure Nnamdi and move to safety if you can. Overpaying him is bad, but better than not having a real option at CB1. Offer DRC a contract commensurate with his performance or he tests free agency, no overpaying there. Test Vick in Chip's offense in the early OTAs, if he fits then restructure to save money and buy time. If not, trade or release, give Foles a full season, then draft a QB next year. Draft Joekel at #4, if he's not there, trade down grab an extra 2nd round pick and build the D. Start with Safety position (hands down the biggest need on the team), then CB.

I'm sure Chip has his coaching staff worked out, just no announcements. Howie, give me a holler and I'll let you know who and what else to grab.

Nnamdi would be an awful Safety. Please he is not physical enough. Their is No way they don't start to go with a 3-4 D. We have no use for A. Jordan at LB. Waste of space. DRC can tackle better then Nnamdi. He is just better all around. They will get a sick safety in the draft. What we need is a couple big DT's and DE's. Then we can use Cole and Graham as linebackers. Ryans looked good compared to the rest of the bums at linebacker. But if they go 3-4, and they will. We will have little use for him. He could get us draft picks. 4-3 is just not working anymore. Look at the playoffs, all the great D's were 34.

Why isn't King cut already. Dorenbos I can give you that. He has been almost perfect at LS for yrs.

February 20-26: NFL Scouting Combine ...so where's the staff to go there and evaluate? If it takes them this long to put a staff together, they should have had people targeted to speak with immediately after the SB, this is going to be a long season. Maybe the problem is, no one is anxious to come to the Eagles, if not.. then just the "H" is the problem?

Kick DRC to the curb. Boykin has better awareness and can cover better. It will free up a good amount of cap space to also draft Milliner so Boykin can have competition in training camp. Both of them are very good at man coverage and have excellent awareness. So it's a no lose situation if that happens.

boykin is a 5'9" second year man with a great bility to play inside. He is clearly a nickel back and would get killed covering 6 fot recievers on the edge. Also guys who thrive inside are rare why would we kick DRC to the curb when we have nnmdi. we need DRC and milliner (only if joeckle isnt avalable) and eric reid in rd 2
