    Sanu to Pats for a 2nd

    The Patriots love their Rutgers players (Devin McCourty, Duron Harmon, Logan Ryan, etc...) No surprise here. Supposedly they tried to make a move during the draft but the Falcons declined. I guess they decided overpaying was better than not getting the guy they wanted.

    Rams acquire Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey

    Good points, I was not aware of how their contracts were structured specifically. In that case, the Rams are stuck for the foreseeable future.

    Rams acquire Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey

    Gurley and Cooks aren't going to be in the long-term plans. They can find a poor-man's deep threat to complement Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp in free agency. The Rams can always run a RBBC with Malcom Brown, Darrell Henderson, and a 3rd RB acquired through the draft.

    Micheal Bennett Suspended by Pats

    The unnamed coach is Bret Bielema, the Patriots DL coach and former Arkansas HC. Your suspicions about Bennett are correct, the disagreement is about his usage on the D-line. Argument with Bret Bielema

    Trade Deadline Discussion

    Underrated need. As stated by other posters in various threads, the failed draft picks have finally caught up to the team. You can't plug in every hole with a veteran player forever, eventually it gets too costly, or the player gets old and injury prone. This team definitely needs some "band-aid" veterans in the interim (or Jalen Ramsey if he's actually on the block) before they can rectify this in the 2020 draft.

    Jay Gruden let go...

    Some guys are great coordinators but not necessarily great head coaches. Jay Gruden seems to fall into that category, not that there's anything wrong with that, especially since we've experienced success with Jim Schwartz at DC. Then again, we have Mike Groh who is better suited at WR coach than offensive coordinator. I think Gruden would actually be a good addition to the Eagles staff as a "senior advisor" to the offense, basically to give Doug another experienced play caller and fill the role that Frank Reich had as the Eagles OC (assuming he doesn't get offered another HC job right away). The Eagles should gladly let another team poach Groh for their coaching staff as HC this offseason (if a team is foolish enough). He can take Duce Staley with him too as OC.

    Uncle Rico and Napoleon Dynamite

    This may or may not be more suited for Rant N'Rave but It's only fitting that the QB that now has the nickname Uncle Rico (Gardner Minshew) is on the same team as Nick Foles. Before Foles became the legend that is BDN, there were memes about his resemblance to Napoleon Dynamite. Jaguars fans should be so proud. Random factoid:

    CB trade this week?

    Harris could be the most "available" of the three as the Broncos are 0-4 and could start trading away their veterans that aren't going to be in the team's long-term plan. It would be similar to the Golden Tate trade where you have a talented veteran on an expiring deal, who isn't going to be re-signed by is current team. I don't see the Broncos getting more than a 3rd for Harris, which could be a more palatable price tag compared to what the Jaguars want for Ramsey (supposedly turned down offer of two 1st round picks). Xavien Howard might be the one high profile player that the Dolphins aren't willing to trade, since they just made him the highest paid CB in the league not too long ago. Then again, I certainly didn't expect them to actually trade Laremy Tunsil or Minkah Fitzpatrick either when the rumors first broke out.

    Bowling Green Kentucky

    643 Sports Bar is a decent sports bar in Bowling Green. Its actually part of a complex adjacent to the minor league baseball stadium in town. Haven't seen an NFL game there but was there for Game 6 of the Bucks-Raptors ECF. Of course you can also try BWW. I haven't been to the BG location so can't comment on it. There isn't an Eagles themed sports bar in the city (to my knowledge), considering that NFL fans in KY will largely follow the Titans (especially Western KY since BG is only an hour from Nashville), Bengals, Browns, or Steelers. I did meet a few Eagles fans during my time in KY, but no specific dedicated sports bars. Enjoy your time in Bowling Green. If you're into cars, the National Corvette Museum and Corvette factory is also in BG.

    Final Super Bowl 53 predictions?

    I would like to see Chiefs-Rams, but have a feeling that we'll end up with Patriots-Saints. If the latter were to come to fruition, I would rather the Patriots win than the Saints. If the Chiefs make it, I would like to see Andy Reid finally get his SB win. People can be disappointed with how Reid's tenure ended here without a SB win, but he was largely responsible for the Eagles rise to respectability during the early-mid 2000s. It's deeply ironic that multiple of his former assistant coaches have gone on to become Super Bowl winning head coaches without Reid winning one himself, at least 3 on the top of my head: Jon Gruden, John Harbaugh, Doug Pederson.

    Are Eagles worst team in division

    Odd fact of the day: There hasn't been a repeat NFC East champion since 2003-2004; interestingly enough the Giants didn't even win the division in 2007 the year they upset the Patriots in the Super Bowl, the Cowboys won the division that year. In summation, it doesn't really matter who wins the division, winning the division doesn't guarantee a SB win. Year Team W-L Playoffs 2003 Philadelphia Eagles 12–4 Lost NFC Championship Game 2004 Philadelphia Eagles 13–3 Lost Super Bowl XXXIX 2005 New York Giants 11–5 Lost NFC Wild Card Playoffs 2006 Philadelphia Eagles 10–6 Lost NFC Divisional Playoffs 2007 Dallas Cowboys 13–3 Lost NFC Divisional Playoffs 2008 New York Giants 12–4 Lost NFC Divisional Playoffs 2009 Dallas Cowboys 11–5 Lost NFC Divisional Playoffs 2010 Philadelphia Eagles 10–6 Lost NFC Wild Card Playoffs 2011 New York Giants 9–7 Won Super Bowl XLVI 2012 Washington Redskins 10–6 Lost NFC Wild Card Playoffs 2013 Philadelphia Eagles 10–6 Lost NFC Wild Card Playoffs 2014 Dallas Cowboys 12–4 Lost NFC Divisional Playoffs 2015 Washington Redskins 9–7 Lost NFC Wild Card Playoffs 2016 Dallas Cowboys 13–3 Lost NFC Divisional Playoffs 2017 Philadelphia Eagles 13–3 Won Super Bowl LII

    Week 9: Raiders @ Forty Niners

    Well the undrafted rookie did much better than I thought, but then again it may just be the Raiders being that bad too. Kittle had a great game and Breida not so much, but can't really whine about Raheem Mostert stealing Breida's thunder after that gruesome injury. Ouch!

    Week 9: Raiders @ Forty Niners

    As long as that undrafted rookie gets the ball to George Kittle and Matt Breida it's all good.
  15. That's a bold suggestion considering the team's history in drafting WRs. He was the only reliable WR the Eagles had the first few weeks of the season. Even with Alshon Jeffrey back, I wouldn't consider Agholor easily replaceable. The team is going to lose a lot of players in the offseason anyways and needs to use those precious early draft picks to fortify the O-line and D-line.
