  1. Joemas6, you said it so perfectly!!
  2. Alshon also had a rotator cuff problem last year yet the way he performed we never knew it. Let's hope all is well with him for 2018.

    [News] RB Matt Jones: An NFL Up-And-Down Story

    Jay Gruden thought enough of Jones to keep him and release Morris. Can't say the trade-off was that much better. I agree, if you can't hold on to the ball, we don't need a player on our team working for the enemy.
  4. Hope your right stine. Looks like the second year in a row we play the Rams away and can't remember the last time we played the Saints here in a regular season game. After reading an article about scheduling on the NFL's site about all the considerations that have to be taken into account, it's a wonder a schedule could ever be produced that is just perfect for everyone. Seems the Patsies are tied for the 10th easiest schedule in 2018. I'm not going to ask how that miraculously happened.
  5. Does anybody have a TE or slot cornerback available?
  6. Don't think for a moment this wasn't researched ahead of time. If at least two of our leaders, Long and Jenkins are ok with Bennett on board from either past experience or working with him off the field to give confidence that Bennett will not be a divisive force in the locker room. Being nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award by his teammates has to say something positive about the man. IMO, being outspoken doesn't necessarily correlate to being divisive.
  7. Can't get enough of our defense!! WOW!! Clown Adam Rank has the Rams as NFC fav's this year. Fanboy!! Got news for ya bro, games are played on the field and last time I looked we are the champs of the NFL and beat your team on your field. Perhaps playing peacock after Talib and Peters signing. Believe we burned both in the 2017 games with Den and KC. No team in the NFL has the quality and depth of our DL, not even close. They're saying Guice could be a young Blount. It'll be strange having earned the 32nd pick in the 1st Rd. Believe Eagles have in mind who they want there. If not, then its BPA or trading down. Love to see them trading down to grab more picks so we can backend a few positions.
  8. BG93. I neglected to say these were Detroit Lion fan comments.
  9. Mixed bag re Blount visiting Lions. Some fans feel he has a hammy problem, isn't a locker room socializer and doesn't, do pre-game warm-ups. Others say Lions need a runner for short yardage and red zone. They're also looking at Gore.
  10. Love all this banter back and forth again at this time of the year. Enjoyable to read all of it. I'm sitting back and watching how Howie the "Master Puppeteer" and "Mysterious Magician whittles us down to cap by March 14 at 4 PM. Then his other real interesting and marvelous work begins. Does anybody know, if we aren't at cap by 4 PM, what exactly happens? (Maybe Howie is temporarily suspended from making any transactions except for those getting us down to cap). Just my spec, don't know for sure!! Can't wait to see how this all plays out!! After 4 PM then all the FA deals and trades take effect and Sniffin Howie continues playing in his playground of FAs/Trades and Draft Choices. Shine again Howie and make it the brightest yet. NFL should realize you don't count the money till the dealin' is done!! Interesting to see how much of the banter, speculation and opinions here hit their mark. If history repeats, Howie sews his own unique path with shocks, surprises and told you so's!!
  11. For whatever it's worth, his parting words to Seattle, its fans and mentioning his family with a religious tone brings something that fits with the Eagles locker room and DP also. IMO, Bennett is outspoken on social issues outside the locker room just like Jenkins and Long are but when it comes time to play, he plays with social philosophy being left at the doorstep to the locker room. I read somewhere where Seattle players liked his locker room demeanor and team spirit. I'm sure Howie and our pro scouts, etc. did their due diligence on this before pulling the trigger. That being said, whats wrong with a one year contract structured as a signing bonus for no cap hit and a disruptive D lineman where players from other teams in his conference are quoted as saying they're glad he's gone, from RBs and QBs alike?
  12. Have to add one there, if you don't mind. Burton to Dullazz. They get to stick it to the Eagles and Burton gets more money and plays full time.
  13. It's like what the club brass (Howie, Doug) have been saying all along. There are difficult decisions to be made. Restructure, extend, trade or let walk to get under the cap and have some money left to sign the prioritized players we don't want to lose to FA. Tis the season for Howie's magic and adeptness to come into play once again. Can smell the smoke and feel the heat. Definitely not a 9-5 job.

    [Spadaro] Big Roles Ahead For 2017 Rookie Class

    We were talking about his past decisions. The present and future is anyone's conviction. Never said about giving up on any specific player.

    A Stanford QB. Gr8 players don't always make gr8 player decisions. Oakland is a mess also but at least they have Carr.
