  1. What if they franchised $27M...then drafted a QB in this upcoming draft? Let Dak play it out, maybe blow it out and force you to "pay him what he wants" next year....or, draft a QB well and replace Dak after the season is over. I believe, on that team, that Dak is replaceable. I think with that O-Line and that RB, you can find another QB capable of producing at a much lower cap number. If the gamble doesn't pay off, are you really any worse off?
  2. The Franchise Tag is the average of the top 5 players at that position, with some adjustment for salary cap increase. It won’t be the top salary, but it will be 100% guaranteed. Google Kirk Cousins career with the Redskins.

    Zeke Set To Hold Out Of Training Camp?

    When the Eagles were not true SB contenders, the team did treat the Dallas games as something special. When the eyes are on the (SB) prize, they’re just two divisional games. I don’t believe Doug will coach these two games this season any differently than the others. He’s gonna gunning to win them all, but sweeping Dallas this season will not mean anything if the season ended without a Lombardi. I can understand why Dallas feels differently. It’s different when your team isn’t really in the hunt for more than a playoff win.

    Brees is actually OVERRATED

    Brees' ratings Away: 92.3 Home: 103.1 I can't seem to get my hands on other QBs Home/Away numbers

    OK. I see your point.... QB Rating Outside Inside Delta Brees 96.7 90.9 101.6 10.7 Wilson 98.8 99.8 84.2 -15.6 Ryan 93.4 90.7 95.2 4.5 Stafford 88.3 84.8 90.1 5.3 Manning 96.5 94.0 99.1 5.1 Romo 97.1 96.1 98.6 2.5

    So basically, if a QB is drafted and succeeds for a dome team, it's almost impossible for him to break the Top 10 QBs all time, no matter how well he plays, or what his number show.

    I wonder if that's just a typical stat for a dome QB. Hmmm. Is there any way to check how different successful dome QBs do outside? Is Brees like any other successful QB who happens to play in a dome? Should be similar to teams that played on old-school turf. How about great outdoor QBs that just didn't luck into a cozy domed franchise? Tom Brady? Could he have been even better had NE played under a dome?

    So we’re gonna ignore the fact that you’re comparing QB stats between a 26 year old and a 39 year old. You believe Wentz numbers would be that high if the Eagles have both Ingram AND Kamara in the backfield? Let’s remember that Andy and Doug prefer to throw the all the time. You can’t really compare stats line by line....otherwise: Brees missed one game in those two seasons.... he also averaged over a 70% completion rate over those two seasons, almost reaching 75% last season. As a 39 year old. Lets put this guys career in context. He won in a city that had won what, maybe one playoff game in its entire existence? (Fact check me on that one, I might be talking out of my butt) The guy may not be Tom Brady, but he’s an awfully good quarterback who makes the position look easier than it is.

    Come on. That no call was horrible. You can't possibly believe that. Agreed that they did not play well, but to say they weren't robbed is poor form. I'm not saying they're unstoppable, nor am I saying Brees is comparable to Brady, but he's certainly in the upper echelon of QBs. In my book. They guy makes it look easy. When he's slinging the balls around, it just seems like there are more Saints out there than defensive players. That being said, he's old, and Father Time catches up with everyone. He may never be back again, but hell if he won't be in the conversation until the next season starts.

    Brees is actually OVERRATED

    First of all, you have to admit that they should have been in the Super Bowl this year. They were flat out robbed and would have put together a much better game than the Rams did. Secondly, they should have played the Eagles last year in the semifinal, and they probably would have had a better go at it than the Vikes. Neither of those two losses can be pinned on Brees. Lastly, Brees is Not overrated. He’s the smallest QB to succeed in the NFL in a long time. He’s got that handicap and still crushes it on the field. This is going to go the way those "why does everyone think Terrell Owens is talented” thread, isn’t it? From Wiki: Major NFL records held by Brees include: Most career passing yards Most career pass completions Most pass completions in a season Highest career completion percentage Highest single-season completion percentage Most touchdown passes in a game (tied) Most consecutive games with a touchdown pass He does what an NFL QB strives to do, put their teams in positions to win games.
