    Great PR move ... Lurie wasn't happy letting Dawkins play for another team over $$ that could have easily been paid to him without having any effects at salary cap space. Peters is the next guy on that level that players can now see ... "if I perform at this level, I will be taken care of and retire here" Great move in that regard. Hopefully it also helps the cap this year and next year. Otherwise, not good business strictly from the business side. If Howie made the deal work... that's great! Lane is paid, Peters is paid... however they want to line up now won't have effects on their pay, so they can go play now.

    Wouldn't it be a RBs dream to run behind Lane at LT and JP at LG?

    Seems like a pointless question seeing as how we don't have Mariota here. I imagine it's easy to say Wentz because he's here now. If we had Mariota here for a couple years and Wentz were somewhere else, I'm sure most would answer Mariota. There's a natural bias that's going to be difficult to remove from the equation.

    Hey again, fellow old timer die-hard Eagles fans. I'm stoked on so many levels here. I've been reading your comments, always gleaning knowledge from your wisdom! I'm especially proud of our DB's keeping up with the huge revamping of every other area of the team. Seeing Troy Vincent's comparison to Bobby Taylor brought to mind one of my all-time fave Eagles moments- Do any of y'all remember the 1993 game against the Jets when we lost Randall to a knee injury and the Jets were about to score from our 6 yd line; and ERIC ALLEN juked the receiver, intercepted the pass, ran 94 YARDS, looking like Wilbert Montgomery; He scored the game-winning touchdown, kept running right to Cunningham, on crutches, and handed him the ball. THAT'S how we play ball in PHILLY. Welcome to all of our new players, fans and especially CHEERS to we, the green-bleeding fans whose TIME HAS COME! (Here's a link to thee NFL video of the Eric Allen "gift" to Randall Cunningham... Ef28VF7k6Rw

    I agree Swoop. DP needs to do better Play selection this year. There were many times he left me scratching my head. I wasn't the only one too. Sometimes it is OK to be predictable if you have the horses to make the play work. I really think he outsmarted himself a few times last year.... Here is to hoping he does a great job!! Cheers (Drinking a beer down)

    I don't know. You have Stout saying Peters is coming off his best season(since he's been Oline coach). And I tend to want to agree. Or at least it's arguable. He finished strong last season. Getting out of the Chip go go go mode really benefited him. And Pedey has shown a very good knack at understanding each individual and not burning him out in practice. That's one thing you don't hear enough about our Head Coach. He's good with people. Players want to play for him.

    Very early,but nice to hear guys are making plays on both sides of the ball and some are "unknown entities".Appears we did majorly well in the offseason as well as in the draft.Seems to me there is much more solid play going on here that we have lacked in awhile

    "you love it when runners have complimentary styles" Me too. The more variety an offense has, the harder they'll be to defend against. But, at some point I expect the Eagles' offense will come down to how well coached they are (injuries excluded), and whether coach Pederson is clever enough with his offensive play calling this year to out coach the Eagles' opponents or not. I hope last year was a valuable learning experience for him. As it now appears he's got most of the necessary ingredients to have a very good offense in 2017--that is, with the recent & much needed addition of Blount. All the rest will come down to whether the players do their utmost to stay out of trouble off the field. Since those kinds of incidents, whether it's illicit activities in night clubs & the mistreatment of women, or substance abuse, or putting NFL banned drugs into their bodies, can seriously hurt & let down a football team, as we unfortunately witnessed last year.

    Love it Tommy! So pumped to see this offense roll this season, and make no mistake, with the level and depth of talent on this team, there is no reason we can't. We stay healthy and we're in the hunt for division title, no question.

    There were times last season when Coach Pederson would go high tempo,like if he saw the D getting gassed or to try and get the O into a rhythm. Other coaches do it too,just not all game like Chip. I'm very eager to see Sproles & Pump,Sproles & Blount,Blount & Pump,and Gordon leading the way at FB for them. I think they could try this at anytime,but like you said,I think it would be best suited for during a 'Hurry-Up',or 2 min.warning when the D has no chance to bring in a different set! We did really well when we ran the no huddle last year. I would like to see more of it this season.

    When I sign in to the Forum link I cannot get back to the News content without using the search feature or View full article option when I chose that option I am no longer signed in to comment on the article? I can only comment from the forum page. Gibson demonstrated in college tremendous ability to track the deep ball well... Hollins did that also. Gibson seemed to have lined up on the left side most of his college career. Now he has to learn the other route trees, in slants the ball is getting to him much quicker from guys with more talented arms. It is waay to early for raised expectations on this rookie class...hahahahha... tooo late, My Expectations are already through the roof ...lol. Agholor's performance in OTA'S echoes loudly the importance of Quality coaching... this coming from someone who hoped that Greg Lewis would succeed. I liked his blue color efforts as an Eagle. There seems to be higher level of confidence in Groh teachings, perhaps because of the demonstrated success he had with Jeffery, Proven Success. and that confidence was on display during the OTA... still a long way to go... next measuring stick, bring on the pads.

    Agree 100%. I previously stated in another thread when the Eagles drafted Mack Hollins at #12 in the 4th round(our first of two in the 4th, Pumps being the other at 26th) there was a split screen shot of the Cowgirls war room. It might just be me but imo, it appeared they were shocked and dismayed by our Hollins pick and were scrambling around to find another player to draft. It looked like we also stole this other player they intended to pick at 27th when we moved in front of them to grab Pumps at #26 in a trade with the Chiefs. Could not imagine Elliott and Pumps in the Dullass backfield together. Thanks "Big Red" A few cheeseburgers for you!!

    Persepctive about our WRs. 1. When was the last time we had a #1 like Alshon? I think T.O. 2. When was the last time we had a #3 as good as either Matthews or T. Smith, whichever you consider 2 or 3? IDK, Greg Garrity...LOL Maclin and DeSean were nice, neither a #1, and not much else behind them at all. Neither particularly great in the red zone, although I'll take Maclin with the route running and the hands, he wasn't a guy you always need to double team in the red zone. To me its probably the best 3 by far, throw in Sproles and Ertz, with some decent options behind them, and it has to be the best unit we have had here. Doesn't mean the results will be as good as other years where we were top heavy, but will be fun to see.

    No reason not to be excited about this WR group this year for sure. We have a tough schedule of games and without knowing who could be back next year will make judging this year somewhat difficult. I cant wait to see it though!

    Great. So how many guys weigh down the 2017 squad because of potential? You are going to need some guys to dress on Sundays. If you don't keep guys with potential,you are one and done ➊ If there's room for Orlosky on the 53,then he should be put on if he shows enough upside,which he should. ➋ Seumalo can play center,his most natural position. ➌ But,you always have 7 Inactives on game day,which is retarded!. ➍ The thing of being allowed to have 53 players on the ACTIVE Roster but you can only have 46 ACTIVE is taking the 'chess' thing into idiotic territory! Maybe we should increase the Active roster also? Allowing another 3-4 players to dress may be a good thing with the mounting injuries we have seen over the past few years. I agree to raise one does not make sense, unless you also raise the other....

    Pretty amazing isn't it? I don't think we've had this "problem" for at least a few years, where we will have a hard time choosing who to cut. Assuming it goes as I see it, i'm really going to miss a few of these guys who are already here and miss out on the opportunity to see those that are new.

    I look to the PS games to build more chemistry heading into the regular season and to iron out kinks we may have in certain basic sets, nothing more or less. Don't care if we are 4-0 or 0-4, doesn't count and doesn't matter to me. What does matter is a certain smoothness or togetherness with which the plays are run or how the defense looks in certain situations. Combining rookies with the vets to see how they all can blend and shine together, smooth substitutions with the sub packages and fine tuning the timing and communications.

    Ok, what's done is done. I know there's a whole business aspect to it from both sides but something that gets overlooked a lot of times is a team's dedication to it's own. Peters has done a LOT for this organization and I'm glad the team helped assure him that he will retire an Eagle, which is what he deserves. Part of me likes to believe there's still dedication from both sides in the league nowadays. So i'll be happy about the deal for that reason. Also, a "long" term positive (two years) if and when he isn't starting, he's one hell of a backup and mentor for his successor. Then there's the obvious cap space saved so that we can resign Marcus Smith. I kid! I kid!

    Barbre did take the better part of the reps at LG with the 1st team in OTA's,until the first day of mini-camp today. Seumalo got the most of the LG starts on Tue. and I see him taking that starting spot pretty handily from what we saw out of him last season.

    Any way to free up Cox is huge. So even though he is only here for possibly a year, lets see him have a monster year along with our entire D line.

    lol thank you. I think i've been lurking here for far too long without posting. I'm not a stalker but i've been reading all ya'll for long enough to know where everyone's coming from. Honestly, I think this year is going to kick a** just enough to get us into the playoffs. Which is everything i'll realistically hope for this year. Lately i've been really consuming a lot of Eagles news as I don't have much to do while at work so there's a few guys I've got high hopes for on the roster. BTW, you may like this article enough to lift your spirits regarding the cornerback situation: http://phillysportsnetwork.com/2017/05/29/secondary/ let me know what you think? Thanks again for the welcome, it's great to be a part of it!

    Just got back from a pizza party my VFW threw at a VA hospital near where I live. Have been doing this for years and making many visits during the year as well. Makes me feel great to give time to those guys as I know from where they came. I shall never grow tired or bored of it!! Gives them some cheer as many have no families to visit them.

    Looks like we just lost Orlosky for 7-8 wks estimated due to a torn MCL. Was hoppin for him to earn a roster spot or even start. Too bad!!. Don't know if anyone else saw this.
