Why were Bears so anxious to dump him?  I read somewhere he and Nagy weren't on same page but he's been very productive.

So are they still drafting a RB on day two?
Title: Re: Jordan Howard, Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: Don Ho on March 28, 2019, 09:11:20 PM
Any RB who has a pulse > than Clement, Smallwood, Adams.

hes basically wendell smallwood except he had a good fantasy year 2 years ago.

their rb room will be
draft pick tba
clement
-
pick 2:
smallwood, howard, adams, draft pick tba, deep outside sproles shot

seems likely that he will make it but theres no guarantee

At least two of those guys are getting hurt and going on IR.

Yeah, the two they keep.  At least one of the ones they cut will go to NE and play in the Super Bowl.

Post by: MDS on March 28, 2019, 09:32:37 PM
with all the extra picks theyll have in 2020 a 6th is really nothing....this is pretty much a giveaway

theyre a lock to draft someone in top 3 rounds and easily could grab another later and/or a high dollar udfa. howard is better than josh adams, though, so theres that.

My money is on Donnel Pumphrey leading the Pats backfield to Brady's last Lombardi.

I doubt Pumphrey's still in the league in six years.

I don't think they draft RB until after 3rd round now.

heís a free agent and not very good this better not affect what they do in the draft

no

they have 2 2's. seems likely theyll grab one there. going DE with the 1 makes a lot a sense and they might need to trade up and lose a 2 to get the guy, but that still leaves the other one

But Howie can just magic up another trade next year, silly.

Weird that the Bears gave him up.  Ok, though.  I still think theyíre still drafting one semi-early.
Title: Re: Jordan Howard, Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: Diomedes on March 29, 2019, 07:01:16 AM
I think they probably think they have their guys.  Howard is the bruiser, who is good in pass pro, and doesn't have to be kept past this year if he's disappointing..  Clement is the pass catching third down back.  They probably haven't given up on Adams.  I think it more likely they use early round picks on O and D line.

Also, I follow all of this very closely.  You people should respect my opinion.  I know things.

I agree. Plus there's some Bryce guy the Flyers picked up so Philly sports should be good for a while.

Post by: QB Eagles on March 29, 2019, 01:57:26 PM
Worst case, Howard is cut in camp. Best case, he's Blount. Either way I don't think they are done addressing the position.

Weird that the Bears gave him up.

He didn't fit the offense Nagy wants to run. Can't catch worth a damn.

It takes pressure off the backfield and therefore the personnel with defenses knowing they have the magnificent 4 to deal with (Ertz, Jeffrey, Agohlor, and Pimp). We could stick IGY in the backfield and he will be top 10 rusher. Let's hope this Wentz kid can play past week 13.

Post by: Don Ho on March 30, 2019, 07:00:25 PM
IGY in backfield >>>> Chandelier Clement, Tiny Smallwood, Sloth Adams, Grandpa Sproles

Howard, whose 3,370 rushing yards over the past three NFL seasons trail only Ezekiel Elliott (4,048) and Todd Gurley (3,441), was rumored to be headed out of Chicago before the Eagles eliminated the Bears from the wild-card round of the playoffs. He wasnít considered a great fit for head coach Matt Nagyís offense.

Am I the only one feeling Ryan Mathews here?  I like the signing but cautiously, very cautious at that, optimistic.
