  2. Listening to what Howie is saying ...and the current situation with the team (cap space and the outgoing FAs we are losing) I'm fully expecting us to be major players in FA. Also I think the next CBA is going to cause the cap to go up huge. WE have around a $200 mil cap this year without a new CBA.... $300 mil is coming a lot sooner than people realize. You lock in guys now for long term... those contracts take up 2/3 of the percentage of the cap in that scenario. QBs will be making $50 mil soon enough. I think the more we can lock in now, the better our cap situation and ability to build a roster will be in the future. Obviously the key as always... we need to get guys that perform on the field.... bargain or not, the key is how they play, not the $$$

    GBFL has mentioned him a few times I also know we ha e had informal meeting with Perine as well
  7. Did anyone on here mention Lamical Perine? RB that probably can be had in the 5th round and could be a good fit here. I agree with your assessments BG93.

    Hmmmmm that is tough call since we are a team that undervalues LB....I do believe we should sign a LB though in FA. Would also love to see a S added as well though I believe we have to find a way to keep Jenkins and would like to move Maddox into the McLeod role as the deep S. CB- would love to see Byron Jones and think we retain Mills(this will be Howie and the FO listening to Schwartz). WR- I’ve stated I think we need a complete rebuild here so I’m looking to add as much as I can here I’m not just looking at this coming season but the years after as well....So guys like Djax/Alshon likely gone if not this season next. So essentially have 3 starting WR positions to fill. Get me a guy like Robinson/Perriman/Allison etc. take a flier on a guy like Cam Phillips(XFL) draft a Ruggs take another Flier on a mid/Late rounder then have them all battle it out best men win.
  9. Yes... so you agree that the final decision is Howie's based upon a bunch of factors including how badly Doug, Stoutland thinks we need him... and then based upon the landscape of the OL position within the organization and the league.... and what the contract situation would be. Doug is a factor... but Howie makes the decision... not Lurie. Lurie works on the decisions like the color of the uniform etc... not football players. It's not Howie not trusting Doug, it's taking his input. For Doug... his job is to say every players is great and that he wants them back. Should always say that for multitude of reasons... like if he actually does come back for one, it looks good that the coach wanted you... if he gets signed elsewhere, it helps his value if the other team thinks the Eagles want him..etc. Never a good idea to say I don't want this player back. Lurie breaks no tie... in your example ... it would be Stoutland as you... Doug your boss... and Howie as the VP. .... Lurie is not in that equation.
  10. My thoughts on Free Agency: The draft is real deep in Wr and CB talent. There are 19 top 64 ranked WR's and CB's in this draft. 29 total if you consider top 100. Now you look at LB and there are 4 top 64 and total of 6 top 100. Edge rushers - 7 top 64 and 13 top 100. So, my thinking is we should look long and hard at LB for free agency. Get at least 1 and maybe 2... There are only 6 top 100 safetys so there is another area I would look at. I am not saying do not sign a WR or a CB. What I am saying is you have to look at positions of need in Free Agency if there is not an abundance in the draft.
  11. Is Rivers getting $50 mil? .... $50 mil is a lot of cap space to lock in the players you want. Tenn gets first crack at it... including a tag if needed. If they want Conklin, they will keep him.

    If we start getting Lurie Involved believe we are basically back with Chipper again and there is massive turmoil going on in the FO/coaching staff....And at the point Lurie has to make the serious call of firing the GM or the HC....Or even both

    This is literally what I’ve said from the very start lol....When I say Howie I mean the entire FO is the personnel department, scouts etc. and we all know they are listening to the coaches taking in their feedback as well.... But when the final decision comes up on to whether to sign this guy, retain this guy, release this guy etc. comes up on the 90 man roster and the room is split final call has to go to Howie as the GM. In the JP case if it is fairly even split on what to do with him yes think Howie should lean with the coaches mainly Stout in my eyes which likely is who Doug is listening to. But if the majority of everyone involved think it’s time to move on from JP and go with Dillard... I don’t think Howie should undermine all of them just for Doug either There are a lot of people involved in these decisions it isn’t like it is just Doug vs Howie makes all the calls
  14. Correct. But Who Howie signs for the 90 man roster is based on communication with the head coach. I agree that JP is a whole different scenario. That decision has to be a group one. I would think Peters deserves that.....

    So again like i said Howie fills in the 90 man roster and Doug cuts down to the 53....JP isn’t a cut he is a decision to resign at this stageb
  16. Howie signs players based on the teams need. Pederson advises what the team needs. Pederson makes all of the final cuts, not Howie. Head coach always makes the final cuts.... Why would Howie make those decisions?

    I’m not aiming to trade back round 1 if this draft is as deep and talented as every keeps saying to me that means my top guy on my board is likely going to be in striking range or even possibly fall in my lap at 21.

    But you want to go the right of distrusting the entire personnel department????? What makes more sense for Howie to do...Listening to 1 guy his coach or the personnel department???? They are going to talk all this out they will talk about JP and if the majority feel like it’s in the best interest for the team to move on from JP then Howie should make the call to move on from JP....If the majority feel it’s in the best interest for JP to return he should make the move to get him back. If Doug is running to Lurie who he somehow gets to override Howie then we might as well just fire Howie and everyone else in the FO because you literally just undermined all of them for 1 person(Doug’s) sake. Final decision as I have said all along on the 90 man roster should be Howie’s....Based on the information that he is given from all the coaches, scouts, personnel department etc.

    Will Aiyuk or Reagor be there at 40?

    what sows discord to me is when Pedey and Duce beg to have Sproles back and he can’t contribute for years. Makes everybody look bad. Not sure why you(FL) feel like Peters at 38 is the best option to protect your Franchise QB. I’d probably lean towards the opposite. But if Peters will take a backup roll and keep coaching the kids up...I’d consider bringing him back at a much discounted rate. Probably even have the talk with him about becoming Stout’s assistant after this season. Let him know he’s auditioning for a coaching job.

    Depends how much Ped wants to push it.he could go to Lurie.At that point it's Luries call or he can tell Howie "do what you want".That is still a decision.At that point then yes it would be on Howie,but you are creating discord on your team who can see the FO doesn't trust Ped's decision making.You really wanna go there?

    That's because we are psychotic.......I mean psychic(or both).or maybe they track this board for kicks and laughs lol

    You literally just agreed that Howie makes the decision

    Yeah thats what I was basically asking WHO? Just to say you want to move up doesn't mean diddly. If Ham is dead set on the 40 pick,maybe we move up from 53 and give up ALOT less??? Just a thought.21 and 40 would give you 2 really sweet players.Now you can parlay some of your other picks to move up from 103(you're not getting to 85,but maybe you can get close)
