  1. No, he is not a 3 down back and never will be. By definition that is what a franchise RB needs to be. He will punish defenses. He will get those short yardage first downs. He will be solid in those areas. But that is why we signed him. To help out in those areas, which he will. Bit noone ever tried him as a 3 down back,so how do you know? Because he has hands of stones. He cannot catch the ball out of the backfield. If you are going to pound the ball like NE did the first 4 games of last year, then fine. But if you need him to also catch the ball forget it. Not his specialty... 3rd and long he will be taken out. Every time....Did you ever consider there was a reason Coaches Never tried him as a 3 down back? Obviously, our coaches disagree with you or they wouldn't be trying to have Blount catch out of the backfield. If he was that horrible, do you really think we would be having him do that this late in his career. Now, I don't believe he will be doing a lot of that, because as was stated earlier, he was brought here for short yardage situations, whether that is for a first down or in goal line situations. In 100 career games he caught 46 total passes for a 3.4 yard per game average. So please tell me that the Eagles are gonna use him as a receiver. Really? Sure, they are letting him catch balls in practice, but you can bet your dollar he won't be a target during the season. That is why we have Sproles and Pumphrey.... Also, just because they are having him catch balls in practice means they disagree? No it doesn't...

  3. How many franchise RBs win SBs lately.... other than Lynch? Not many. Ray Rice of Baltimore is probably only other one in past 10 years. But it does not mean having one will hurt your chances....
  4. You are correct thinking it is too early to decide which way they go. We could lose 3 WR's so that may be the direction they go... Who knows?
  5. Locked are Round 1, Round 3, Round 4, Round 5, Round 6 & 7. We also have Vikings 4th round pick. We either get NE's fourth round pick or 3rd if Rowe plays in 50% of the Defensive snaps this season which is possible. So, to answer your question, most likely we hit on RB in the 3rd or 4th round next year. I still feel CB or LB is going to be their preference if available in round 1 next year...
  6. Think Dave is on vacation. Probably best time for it too as nothing is really happening this time of year.....
  7. Welp, going to Lumberville tomorrow night for dinner. Sitting outside with a nice view of the Delaware River. For those who may live east and north of Philly, you may even have heard of the place.... Here is the menu.... http://www.blackbasshotel.com/menus
  8. I have tried numerous times to comment on the Eye, but I gave up. The site keeps erasing my comments as I write them or does not allow me to at all..... Just a shame...
  9. team of TE's. I know most feel Ertz is a top 5 TE so deserves better, but until I see a more steady production and more TD's he cannot be an Elite in my book. However, having said that you can rate as you see it....
  10. OK, I did a side by side comparison and tried to be as objective as I could. I ranked the Lines, TEs, WRs, RBs, QB etc.... 1-10 SCALE. Here is what I came up with; Dallas- O-Line-10, TE-7, WR-8, QB-7, RB-10, D-Line-6, LB-8, CB-6, S-6= 68 total, Eagles- O-Line-9,TE-7, WR-8, QB-7, RB-8, D-Line-9, LB-8, CB-6, S-8=70.... Now I realize everyone will want to pick apart my rankings, but they are how I feel so let it go. I gave Wentz a 7 because he simply has not yet shown any better yet. As much as I dislike Elliott, he is a top 3 RB in the league and deserves that ranking. anyway, by these grades we can see that the Eagles are slightly better than Dallas. Of course injuries could switch it all around..... Feel free to make your own based on how you feel and see what you come up with.... We can compare.

  12. They need Sidney Jones to play to his ability next season and probably add one more starting caliber CB to make this unit a top 5. Normally a good DC can hide a couple players with a good scheme. So I think this defense will make tremendous strides this season and will be a real strong point starting next year. I would like to add depth to the Linebackers too. An injury there could be a real issue.
  13. Pumps may have an impact, but I am concerned about his size. He is Sproles height, but is like 20 lbs lighter. He may not make it a full season....
  14. Well, this draft will be graded in 3 years as some of these players will not hit the line up until then. Qualls is one player I do not feel will start this season. He may see the field towards the end of regular season, but he will need to hone his skills a year or so first. Others have the same situation. Gibson is not ready and may make the practice squad. Sidney Jones is healing and will make an impact next year. Only two I see making an immediate impact are Barnett and Douglas. Maybe Hollins on ST's....
  15. Welp, we agree on this Joe! See we are making strides! lol New subject people.... Have a great day!!
