http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/fanzone/JrCombine2011.asp?

So this is the first I've heard of it, but apparently the Eagles have been doing this Jr Combine thing for 5 years now.  For the low, low price of $50, you can watch your kid run through combine-like drills for 2.5 hours at the NovaCare Complex.  I wonder if previous years have had players in attendence.  If so, seems like a total rip off for them to still do it.  Gotta make that money though, right Joey B? 

Oh, and this is a very Snyder-esque move by Banner Inc.

It is cool and a nice price if players were there.  But they aren't this year, so paying $50 so your kid can run the 40 and test his verticle and get d-line technique training from Juan Castillo is kind of dumb.


Besides, look at these little dopes:

For fargs sake, that kid standing up in the back doesn't even have a real jersey.  And what's up with the gingers in the middle?  Why aren't they getting their faces kicked in?

Swoop is ok but I don't think he's anything special. 

Remember Bird Brain, the "unofficial" Eagles mascot back in the day?  I used to see him all the time at games when I was a kid.  He was awesome.

Apparently though, he's done some shady shtein over the years and has warrants for his arrest in a couple states, was being investigated for fraud or something because he was running a charity but couldn't show where all the money is going, and is suing a news station for like $100mil for slander and who knows what else.  He's also got 7 kids and 2 of them have completely severed ties with him.  Dude's only like 50 though.  I guess I always imagined someone a bit older inside that costume back then.

Bird Brain came and (probably) went before you were born/before you were old enough to remember.  I think the last time I saw him was early 90's...maybe 92.   

Bird Man is some dude in a green body suit with a plastic beak who makes obnoxious screeching noises.

All,

Spuds here .. we have been in conversations to move the boards back to what they were before. We have a few hurdles left to leap, but I feel that we are moving in that direction. You have made your feelings of these boards loud and clear, and we all appreciate that. We listen to you, as you know. So, please remain patient for another couple of days.

My goal is to restore the boards the way they were, and that means reverting back to the boards AS THEY WERE prior to our moving to the NFL platform. That is the goal. Obviously, we are trying to alleviate any instances where we have slowness on the site as well, so that is a goal as well. I appreciate your patience through all of this and I apologize for putting you through it. Thanks. Dave

Prior to the shutdown they had around 150,000 registered users and that place was a zoo. But the board was easy to navigate and use, people were familiar with each other, and it was a great place to get information since there were so many people. I'm glad they're changing back because I would have hated Mod'ing on the new format. It's a disgrace.

The biggest benefit is Mod day at training camp. We get field passes and lunch is on the Eagles. That includes beer. He usually joins us. We're allowed to bring a guest too although there are only a few of us who actually make it every year. To me it's the one day of the year that I don't miss.

Other than seeing some of the familiar places like the press conference room (which is on the left as soon as you enter the lobby), the practice field and the locker room, it's pretty much just a regular office building with cubes and tiny offices on the 2nd floor and a bunch of meeting rooms on the 1st floor.  There's pictures and posters on pretty much every wall, the workout area is huge, and the cafeteria looks like your typical high school one but with a game table in the one corner.  They also have the 2004 championship trophy in a glass display in the lobby.

Back on board

 

The Eagles' message boards, in all their fabled glory, should be back by Monday, team Web czar Dave Spadaro said yesterday.

Spadaro has spent the week dealing with angry users of his site, which late last week converted to an NFL-mandated universal platform. That platform included a message board format that was much more rudimentary than what the team had provided previously. Even worse, longtime users found they couldn't get in with their old usernames, couldn't use their avatars, and so on.

"They hated it," Spadaro said. Spadaro said he and his helpers spent some time trying to answer the question, "Can we salvage these boards?" Their answer, he said, turned out to be "No." So, he said, the Eagles have decided "to return to the boards as we had them prior" to the switch.

The rest of the site will remain on the NFL-mandated platform, Spadaro said.

"We're the most complex site the league has taken on to date" in its quest to standardize websites, Spadaro said. "The boards the NFL provides aren't robust enough for our fans," up to 5,000 a day of whom use the message boards, which count more than 165,000 registered users, Spadaro said.

Spadaro said the league has no problem with the Eagles using their old board format, that "the boards are something we pay for additionally." The team will save money on the rest of the redesign, using league servers and so forth. *

farging losers

lol...i dont know if theres anyone i personally know that hates the eagles more than DH right now....and trust me i know some true haters

My hatred is mainly towards the NFL, but being that I am a season ticket holder of this loser organization, I get to spew the majority of my hatred towards them. My list of reasons I hate the Eagles and NFL now include but are not limited to the following:

1. The Eagles have my STH money for a season which Jeffrey Lurie is not assuring will be played. Always nice when a billionaire demands $800 of my money or else threaten losing my seat to the show.
2. The Eagles are making money off my (and IGY's, Mo's, smeags, and every other STH's) money by placing it inside a cute little escrow. I'm pretty sure every single one of us STHers have better uses for our money than making sure an organization which could care less about its fans slowly becomes more and more profitable.
3. There is nothing better than the NFL Draft. NOTHING. And due to this shtein farging situation, I couldnt tell you half the guys who should go in the first round. Same goes for FA. Aside from what I read here, I dont really know who the FA's are. I've lost serious interest. Im not sure if it will continue into the season (should there be one), but I've never cared so little about what the Eagles do during any one given offseason. Honestly, they can trade Kolb today to Carolina and get the #1 pick and I wouldnt care a lick.
4. I plan my weekends around Eagles home games. I go to 2-3 road games a year, hop on at least 1 flight a year to see them. I drove to farging Jacksonville on a whim 2 days before the Super Bowl after paying way too much for a game ticket. I care. They dont. farg them all.

I'm not a STH, but that still pisses me off.  I didn't realize that they were still forcing you guys to pay for your tickets even though there may not be a season.  They are making money off of your money right now and you are getting nothing in return.  That's absolutely pathetic. 

But hey, Joe Banner is the reason why the EMB is back up and running in it's old format, so that probably makes up for everything, right?

i can only speak of the giants and jets as i have friends who are sth of each...giants only asked for half, jets did what the eagles did asking for it all..i sincerely believe that not one sth of any of the 32 teams should have had to pay a penny at this point.

my main point is that there is a very real chance there may not be a season to use the tickets which i have "on hold" now..the typical demographic on your average nfl sth'er is not exactly a wealthy, white collar guy...so that said, why should my money be in their hands and their accounts making them money instead of in my accounts making me money (from money which is already mine)?

The real point here is that even if all 32 teams are requiring fans to pay for their season tickets (be it a partial payment or the full amount), the Eagles had an opportunity here to do right by their fans and require little or no money down on their season tickets for 2011.  For all of the gold standard talk and how innovative they think they are in the way they do business, they sure seem to be afraid to step outside of the box when it comes to the fans.  In these "tough economic times" the billionaire owner could have really endeared himself to the fans by telling them to keep their money and that their tickets will be waiting for them once football starts back up. 

Now imagine for a minute though if all 32 owners decided to do this.  Not only does it satisfy the fans and keep them happy but it probably wins them a lot of popularity points regarding public perception and people's opinions about the lockout.  Suddenly the owners aren't a bunch of rich greedy a-holes, they're people who care about the fans and make a business decision that was better for the fans rather than the bottom line.  And in actuality, it would end up being better for their bottom line in the long run anyway.

True.  However, when STH pay their $800 or whatever they pay for their tix, they do so early in the year knowing that there will be games being played starting in Aug.  Can't say that this year.  They are currently being charged for a product that may or may not be available.  We do know that eventually football will be played again and so whenever that is, the tix are already paid for.  But what are the Eagles doing with that money in the meantime?  They don't have the same operating costs right now as they would under normal circumstances.  There are no meetings, no OTA's, no players working out in the Nova Care.  So what are they doing with the season ticket money?  Like DH said, it's probably sitting in some account building interest.  Why should the Eagles be making money on that?  It should be sitting in DH's account building interest or getting spent on hookers and blow. 

Quote

Once a new CBA is in place, I think it would be fairly reasonable to give fans anywhere from 2-4 weeks to get their money in.

You over estimate the intelligence of a lot of fans.  Would it convince you or me?  Not really.  I don't think it would convince anyone on this board really.  But it would most certainly draw a lot of fan support towards the owners side during this whole process.

I should have been more specific. The Eagles have half my money. They will have it all on June 8th when there still will be no cba deal done.

the interest doesnt begin to earn until the june 8 due date for the SECOND installment

is this true? the fact that there is a date put on when they start collecting interest almost makes it worse - almost like they decided to show the fans that they are only semi-douchey..if it is true, how are the eagles (and every other team doing the same) not being investigated by some kind of governing body?? seriously, this is farging maddening.

So yeah, that's not quite as bad as I originally thought, but still kind of shady.  So basically, the 1/2 down payment that STH's have put down right now is generating interest and the Eagles are collecting that interest.  The other 1/2 is not due until June 8.  So on June 8, DH pays his other half.  Then lets say July 1 comes around the the NFL says the season is cancelled.  That means that DH will get his $800 back plus the interest that was accumulated on that $800 from June 8 - Jul 1?  Meanwhile, the interest that accumulated on the $400 he paid in February (or whenever it was due) until June 8 is going into the Eagles/Lurie's bank account? 

DH is right on....how is this allowed to happen and why isn't it being investigated?  I'd be firing off hate mail to the Eagles, the Commish and my Congressman (which I'm sure he will act on promptly in a few months when the budget issues are resolved).

Post by: Sgt PSN on April 11, 2011, 06:17:04 PM
but what are you going to investigate in this case?

The biggest problem I have with the whole thing is that teams are requiring their STH's to pay for tickets to see games that are currently not set to be played.  Why they are able to charge for a service that they are not certain they can provide is ludacris.  It would be like a real estate developer selling time shares on the moon. 

As it stands right now, there is no NFL season in 2011.  There will be if they come to an agreement on a new CBA but until that happens, there is no season.  I just don't understand how you can charge consumers for a product or service that (at the time of the transaction) you are unable to provide.

I don't look at it that way.  To me, the season is canceled until a new CBA is agreed to.  That's how I look at it.  If I'm a farmer in the middle of a drought with no crops, I can't charge people for food and tell them it'll be ready in a couple of months after I get some rain.

And I'm not saying that the Eagles shouldn't still require some sort of down payment on season tickets.  But they are still operating under their normal business proceedures when they aren't conducting normal business.   So why not drastically reduce the amount required to hold the tickets until the CBA is resolved and then hit the fans up for their cash?  If it were me, I'd feel very uncomfortable giving them (or anyone) a few hundred bucks when they can't guarantee me that I get to use the tickets this year.

you dont need a new cba for games to be played...if a judge agrees that a lockout is illegal everything falls back under the old system

i dont necessarily disagree that there could be more customer friendly ways to do this but i also dont think what they are doing is wrong (other than the june start date for the interest)
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Sgt PSN on April 11, 2011, 06:55:25 PM
The judge thing is another possibility, but how long would that last?  For this season?  And there's still no guarantee that the judge will side with the players.  All I'm saying is that right now, there's no football.  No practice, no activity at the Nova Care.....nothing and there is no guarantee that there will be. 

This is why I'd make a terrible businessman though because in order to get ahead in this world you have to be shady and that's just not my style when it comes to this stuff.  My conscience wouldn't allow me to collect that much money for football game tickets when there's some uncertainty over whether or not they'll be played. 

Like I said, I'd be cool with it if they wanted like $100 to hold your tickets until a new deal is reached (or if the judge rules for the players) and then charge people the remainder minus the interest that was earned on that $100.  So for the sake of argument, tix are $1000 and I put down $100 to hold them.  3 months from now the season is back on and I need to pay the $900 balance.  But during those 3 months my $100 earned $3 interest.  My remaining balance owed should be $897.

Either I just don't understand business or I'm too nice, but that's how I would do it if I ran a team.  You should probably be thankful that I don't.

There's really no reason to assume the season is going to be abbreviated or cancelled because there's a lockout in early April. Of course it's a possibility that the season will be affected, but it's way too early in the game to get it in your head that there won't be NFL football in 2011. As of now, it's just causing a farged-up beginning to the offseason. Unlike growing crops, the CBA could be done in a day if it had to be. Most of the people involved expect and want the season to be played. I think the season will be played whether there is an injunction or not.

If things are still like this in August, with no signs of moving toward a CBA, that will represent a major deterioration of the situation, and that's when it makes sense for people to start making moves like the season is not assured.

bottom line, I don't like being taken advantage of, and that goes 1000X when it comes to something like eagles football which I care so deeply for. time and again, I've invested time, money and emotion into this team with nothing to show in return. so now, in a dark hour for NFL ownership, lurie has a chance to befriend the fans who pay for it all, but instead he decides, once again, to drill us right up the ass.  

one thing I can finally agree on is banner, lurie and co. are scum of the earth - and I did not feel that way 3 months ago.

Yep.

I'm as big of a draft head there is, couple that with free agency, and I loved this part of the off-season.

But now I haven't read a draft guide and as much as I tried to get into watching the combine or reading mocks I cannot do it. They've broken me. I've gone from full on draft geek to not giving a farg.

I like the STICK FIGURES of him running over dallas and washington players. So many players today are afraid to say anything in the slightest that can become "bulletin material," or else just say the stupidest shtein possible that can come out of their mouth, without there being much in between.

When Ross Tucker was on PFT Live earlier this week, he made the case that Eagles fans don’t appreciate the current run of success the team is having.  He called the Andy Reid era the “glory days” of the franchise, something we’ve often thought.

“There’s something to be said for winning the whole thing,” CSNPhilly.com’s Ray Didinger told  Thursday.  “It’s been 51 years since you won a championship. . . . When every year ends the same, you stop being happy about it.”

While the Eagles have easily been the best team in the division over the last decade, they don’t have any titles to show for it.  We’ve often thought Eagles fans have been spoiled by success, but Didinger makes a compelling case.

“When you come from the NFC East . . . And you look around.  The Dallas Cowboys have five Lombardi trophies, the Giants have three Lombardi trophies, the taterskins have three Lombardi trophies . . . the Eagles, not so much.”

Head to the video player for Didinger’s takes on a Kevin Kolb trade, Michael Vick’s future, and Reid’s magic touch with quarterbacks.

Eagles Will Roll Out Mobile App Designed Around NFL Draft  By Daniel Kaplan, Staff Writer, SportsBusiness Journal

The Eagles on Monday plan to unveil an app designed around its draft, which the club believes is the first of its kind. The free app, already available on Droid and soon on the iPhone, will provide alerts of Eagles draft picks; show which picks remain on the board based on NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock’s “Big Board;” a live feed of all player picks; a social media function; news stories; a shoppping link; and a video feed of PhiladelphiaEagles.com. The app was developed by Jarvus Innovations. The NFL Draft is April 28-30.

I am thinking that's exactly when they'll work this out.

neither side can afford to miss any actual games. and the owners make a ton on preseason games...

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/eagles/20110508_Ashley_Fox___For_Mikell__a_moving_experience.html

Quote
He is not coming back to the Eagles. That much Mikell knows.

Whenever the NFL and the players finally agree on a new collective bargaining agreement, Mikell will be one of more than 500 unrestricted free agents. While he would love to return to the only team for which he has played, he is not kidding himself. After eight years in Philadelphia, Mikell fully expects to get the Brian Dawkins treatment.

Thanks for playing, good luck going forward.

 "It was cool," Mikell said. "But no vibe either way, which probably means to me that I won't be back. So it's kind of weird."

Quote
"I know once Howie got the job of general manager, every guy wants to put their own stamp on the team. They want to bring their own guys in, and you can see it. Look at the turnover since the Super Bowl year. Me and [David] Akers and Jamaal Jackson were the last guys, and sure enough, they draft a safety, a kicker and a center/guard. The writing has been on the wall."

That does not mean that parting will be easy. A month ago, Mikell started working out with many of his Eagles teammates at Power Train Sports Institute in Cherry Hill. Akers, Jackson, Todd Herremans, Trevor Laws, Victor Abiamiri, and Brent Celek are regulars. Michael Vick has made an appearance.

One day, Mikell overheard several of his teammates planning to get together to run through seven-on-seven drills. No one had invited Mikell.

"I was like, 'Damn, I really am a free agent,' " Mikell said.

Nevertheless, that day at the NovaCare Complex, new defensive coordinator Juan Castillo flagged Mikell down in the parking lot as he was leaving. The two men talked for 40 minutes about defense, what had worked for the Eagles in the past, what had not, and what they might do in the future.

"He's just going to let guys play ball," Mikell said. "He's not going to have them think. He's going to really get back to the roots of what it is, and that's just playing ball and kicking somebody's ass."

Mikell would like to be playing ball for the Eagles, but if not, he plans on playing somewhere. He would like to go someplace where he is familiar with the system, preferably in a warm climate, and while he would not name any teams, there are Reid and Jim Johnson disciples scattered across the league. Baltimore. Carolina. Denver. St. Louis. Minnesota.

And Mikell is hanging onto a conversation he had with Reid in 2009, when Mikell was upset that the Eagles were not talking to him about a second contract extension.

"The one thing he told me was, 'No matter what, when it's all said and done, when you keep playing, you're going to make a lot of money. You're going to be fine,' " Mikell said. "I took that as, yeah, I'm going to make a lot of money, but maybe not here.

As average as he's been the last season or so, I wouldn't be so quick to usher him out the door yet. Jarrett is an unknown, obviously and Allen is coming off a serious knee injury.

But then again Mikell is over 30 and HOWIE was talking up Colt Anderson over Mikell the other day so...
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Eagaholic on May 08, 2011, 04:51:33 PM
The team desperately needs some strong leadership on defense. Q isn't exactly Dawkins but he does bring continuity and a willingness to hit people. They might not feel him as a loss but there will be something missing they could use. Last year he was up and down some but was pretty solid in '08 and '09. If him leaving is somehow seen as freeing up additional cap space to get Asomugha, I'm all for it.

Mikell is average at best and will be "replaced" regardless, be it by the Montana missile, the Temple gangsta, or some other young and underpaid kid. Not that it matters, because the 2011 season is probably not happening.

Quote
Once the lockout is over, it would make sense for Burress to hold his own mini-camp and invite all interested teams to check him out. I've heard that the Eagles will eventually be first in line, but there's also speculation the Steelers, Chargers, Falcons and Ravens could also be interested.
.
.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Andy Reid, having already been through the post-prison experience with Vick, might be in a better position to handle any public backlash about adding another former inmate. They could also help Burress with his transition back to the NFL. Putting Burress with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin would give Vick plenty of options.

NOT BUYING THE BURRESS RUMOR

You'll likely see this Plaxico Burress rumor somewhere today, so I thought I'd at least mention it.

Gary Myers of the New York Daily News writes that he's "heard" the Eagles will "eventually be first in line" for Burress' services once he's released from prison on June 6:

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Andy Reid, having already been through the post-prison experience with Vick, might be in a better position to handle any public backlash about adding another former inmate. They could also help Burress with his transition back to the NFL. Putting Burress with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin would give Vick plenty of options.

While I'll never rule anything out with the Eagles, I have a tough time seeing Burress as a good fit.

They are obviously set with their top two receivers for the next few years, assuming DeSean Jackson agrees to a new deal. Jeremy Maclin is signed through 2013.

Jason Avant has proven to be a very good slot guy and is under contract through 2014.

Could the Eagles benefit from having a big receiver? Sure. But I think they want Riley Cooper to emerge as that guy. Cooper will likely never be the receiver Burress was in his prime, but Burress won't be in his prime when he returns to the field. He turns 34 in August, and I just can't see him having much of a role with the Eagles.

I know some will make the argument that the Birds need a big target in the red zone, but remember, Maclin had seven red-zone scores last season and looked more than capable of getting open in tight space.

I don't care how lazy or uninspired he was in Washington... Haynesworth would be a razor on the Eagles, especially against the NFC East.    And you seriously can't sit there with a straight face and say he isn't better than every other defensive tackle on the team.

for a low end deal where he can stick it to the racists and work for his old DL coach its a no brainer

if he sucks and doesnt try then cut him. if he plays like he can then you have one of the best DTs in the league if not the best.

its a no brainer. but i guess if the guy who wanted to give mcnabb a 3-year extension says its a bad move then we have to listen to him.

I am squarely on the get haynesworth wagon.  No risk contract, no big money.  Pitched as giving him a chance, articles can be put out about how Vick is "reaching out" to him, etc.  It would be fairly nauseating, sure... but come on...most of this football entertaintment crap about signings and front offices and all this shtein is worthless crap anyway.  It can't get much worse no matter what.

It's on the field that counts.

If he hits, it's brilliant.

If not....dump him like so much basura and move on.

Yeah, that whole episode brought me to psychosis.

Jesus christ I'm getting all twitchy just thinking about it.

But I don't think Haynesworth could elicit that kind of response from me now. First of all, he's a sack of shtein with talent and not the HOF worthy player that TO was. Second, he hasn't signle-handedly destroyed any teams. Third, I just don't have the time or the energy to spend on these farging iceholes that I used to.

Uh, ok. I cannot imagine what the point of that would be. Plax, DeSean and Macklin looks neato on paper, but does this team really need another prison sentence experiment? Or an aging questionmark of a malcontent at a position of talent and depth? Makes no sense.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread

actually it makes perfect sense...what is the one thing the offense has needed since TO left?...and right now more than ever....a big wr that can play on the outside and go get shtein

age is irrelevant because if they go after plax it signifies they are going all out to win now with vick...which is exactly what the attitude should be....plax...haynesworth...assy but classy....load em up lock em down and lets get this lombardi thing once and for all

or you can spend the next couple years following young clean cut content riley cooper develop

Uh, that doesn't make any sense. That's the taterskins method of trying to load up on names with no sense of how they will function together or on the team in the blind hope that they will win it all in the first year together. I know that you love you some Danny but that shtein doesn't work as a one-year plan and one year is all you would get out of Hanyesworth and Plax, best case.

But your condescending comment about Riley Cooper was neat.

the difference is that the taterskins load up when they suck and gus frerotte is their qb

the eagles have vick and made the playoffs last year

do i think they are on the cusp of winning it all and one player would do it no...but if they went all out and had a taterskins type spending spree and added the right pieces they could win...at the very least id like to find out what would happen.....the kinda good but not quite good enough stuff is so 2005

so lets wait 2 years for Plax to blow out candles on his 35th b-day cake, to fully regain his speed--which wasnt even there to begin with--and hope he can outrun corners to go up and get shtein? Hes a 5/10 and out possession receiver at best at this juncture.

lol...you dont need to out run corners if you are going to go up with them...by definition that means the corner and him are together and you will come down with the ball and he wont

and doublolol at waiting for a guy to regain speed he never had

Burress too if he wants another shot. Haynesworth is a sack of shtein, who will either keep his mouth shut or get booted from the next team to sign him.

I guess if Plax would be filling Avant's role, it would make sense.  And I've said from day 1 that Plax got railroaded with that ridiculous prison sentence.  Is he dumb for carrying a gun?  Yeah.  But not 2 years in prison dumb. 

I won't fully jump on the Get Plax bandwagon because there are other, more important needs to address when the lockout ends.  But if the Eagles ended up with him, you won't hear any bitching from my end.

He deserved every day in the clink.

Carry a gun out without proper authorization or when it's against the law AND it goes off then you get punished. If that bullet didn't catch his leg and instead caught an innocent bystander then what?

But like Vick - he will have served his time. So I hope he can come out and handle his business too.

Do I want him on the Eagles? Not really. I like what they have now.

The only thing that bothers me about Burress is his age.   Dook's gonna be 34 years old in August.  I know he hasn't taken a hit in three years, and who knows, he might be in great shape and all that, but combined with the inactivity and his age, it might not be the wisest thing in the world to bring him in.

I'd still roll the dice on him, though, because he's better than anyone they have other than Pimp, Mac & Avant, of course.

If the bullet hit someone else, then you obviously throw the book at him.  The gun was registered and he had paperwork (but if I remember correctly it was from another state.....Florida maybe).   

I think everyone involved, including NYC and the state of NY would have been much better served with a heavy fine and community service.

the gun was registered to own but it wasnt registered to carry....in fact nyc gun laws are some of the toughest in the nation and it virtually impossible to get a ccw permit...and the sentence for ccw is mandatory (i believe 36 months?)...they actually pleaded down plaxes number

according to reports plax loves the eagles and the eagles love plax

what reports? some dopey writer from the ny daily news started this rumor with no basis on monday and its caught like wildfire, because there is NOTHING else to talk about in the NFL circles. here's the line from the article that got this all started:

I've heard that the Eagles will eventually be first in line, but there's also speculation the Steelers, Chargers, Falcons and Ravens could also be interested.

let's see, im a giants beat writer and im trying to get a story going. oh, i know, plax is getting out of jail next week and the eagles already have a former felon - perfect fit!

oh, and this line is hilarious too, because the eagles are more stacked than the giants at wr, further taking away any credibility this jerk-off writer may have had

It's never made sense for the Giants to bring back Burress. Too much history. They are pretty deep at receiver anyway

He's never won a single playoff game despite having one of the best defenses in the history of the sport.

By any meaningful measure he was a failure as a head coach. 
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: MDS on June 04, 2011, 01:37:51 PM
yea but when he was the coach

1. the team was awesome
2. the jerseys were buttery
3. there was no banner inc
4. there was no bandwagon

therefore it hit every checkmark on his list of godliness. and with that, shut your pie hole.

Ryan was a loudmouthed loser who had no business being anywere near an offense or at the position of head coach. Braman was the only dumbass stupid enough to make him a head coach besides the nutbag out in Arizona and he was pretty much an embarrassment were ever he worked.

Almost forgot to mention what a great GM he was out in Arizona, were he pretty much blew two drafts and set the whole organization back years.

Buddy was an incredible personality and a great defensive mind.  But a competent HC he was not and the offense was sandlot during his tenure.  That said, I loved the guy and so did everyone else.  But he should have only had 2 jobs with the Eagles.  DC and pressers.  Had the Eagles had some solid offensive coaching and game planning during those years, they very well may have won several SB's.

Had Owens been represented by a different agent, the whole post-super bowl shteinstorm would have never gone down as it did. With any other agent, TO was an Eagle for at least 3 years. Rosenhack took advantage of TO to further his own client list and fame, and it cost the Eagles the 05 season, and very possibly a Super Bowl.

Again, how any Eagle fan can like him, is beyond me.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread

TO was essentially agentless his whole career...TO does what TO wants to do and no agent is telling him to act like anything that he already isnt...thats just who he is...TO has thrown people and teams under the bus his whole career and none of it has had anything to do with rosenpimp...he had at one point over 100 clients and i dont recall many if any acting like TO...then again im not sure any player of any agent has ever acted like TO

Rosenhaus had everything to do with TO's Eagles fiasco. He played Owens like a violin for his own financial ends. DH was right on.

Rosenhaus makes his money off of the guaranteed money in a contract, usually 2-3% of a signing bonus. If he has a high earning marquee player, he knows he can't get a new contract with new guaranteed money every two or three years so he had them get booted from team to team, each time with a shiney new contract and Drew with another 6 figure chunk of change in his pocket.

TO was more than a willing partner, but with his agent telling him how he's outplayed his contract (which he didn't) and is being played for a chump and how he's being disrespected etc., TO was his bitch.

Rosenhaus did this with a number of players until teams saw through this and it blew up in his face. Jevon Walker fired him for pushing Walker to use such tactics and Lance Briggs became a laughing stock putting on TO like antics, swearing he'll never play another home game in Chicago, even if he has to sit out the entire season. He eventually came whimpering back after Chicago called his bluff (and he didn't help his case any, with his drunk ass fleeing the accident scene at 3 in the morning, after he and his new Lamborghini lost in a game of chicken with a light pole).

Anyway, Rosenhaus manipulated the hell out of TO to his own ends and pushed TO to the extremes he went to with the Eagles.

you also have to remember TO was acting out before he hired drew...people only ever remember the classic presser from rosenpimp but TO started losing his mind right after the superbowl...he didnt change agents until a few months later
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Eagaholic on June 06, 2011, 10:32:25 PM
It's not an either/or; it's both. Rosenhaus has a long bad track record as well, though probably most of his worst was behind the scenes and unknown to us, where Owens craved a spotlight even for the worst of things. They brought out the worst qualities in each other, but Rosenhaus did it with calculating manipulation.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on June 07, 2011, 07:34:18 AM
no one has a long track record of people acting like TO did with the eagles because no one has ever done it before

i think you are confusing simple business decisions and/or holdouts with what TO does...TO takes it from a business manuever to a personal one by throwing teammates and franchises under the bus...

i dont know of rosenpimp clients having a track record of even holding out at a higher % than other agents clients much less of having players do what TO did...people hate drew because he is cocky and puts himself in the spotlight compared to other agents who stay behind the scenes...but as far as how his clients act its no different than any other agents...i mean does anyone even know who chad speck is?...probably not...hes albert haynesworths agent...is he to blame for what his player did...is he a devil just like DR?...of course not...difference is no one has ever heard of him where as drew is straight hollywood so haters hate

it should also be noted that there is nothing wrong with a player holding out provided he has a decent case...you cant act like a player or his agent is a bad seed just because they hold out...its their only response to teams cutting a player because they underperformed or are too old in their mind
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: lurking wierdo on June 07, 2011, 10:08:08 AM
Look, the agent's goal is different than ours. His job is to maximize the amount of money his client makes. His job is not to win games, unless that is dictated by his client. He will. of course, try to influence his client to go for the money, it's how he puts meat on the table. Put yourself in his shoes.

That POS (Owens) was fragile from the second he stepped foot on a field in Frisco, and Rosenhaus had him on his radar from that point on - and probably long before. Granted, the post-SB shtein that happened began with a different agent at TO's side, but I don't understand how anyone can believe that how it all went down, from training camp to his release, was not at all, a product of TO's relationship with DR.

From the second DR was hired, all TO heard from him was how he courageously caught 9 balls on a broken and torn up ankle for a team who wanted to rule him out of the game in the first place. He never cared about Owens' career or a potential ring. He cared about his own reputation and getting himself paid. Reid, Banner and Co may collectively be the reason why this team didn't win at least 1 SB during the last era of this team, but Rosenhaus is reason #2.

because TO has done that his whole career....before and after rosenpimp...where as rosenpimp has zero history of having any clients having ever done something like that

TO has deep seated emotional and psychological issues that go way beyond whoever his agent may be...i dont think rosenpimp has anything more to do with what TO does as chad speck does with what haynesworth does

and its not even like im a TO hater...id take him all over again in a heartbeat....just as i wouldnt hesitate to sign a DR client as well...altho if you ask me who would i be more afraid of it would be TO by far

BUT! Owens was already signed to the Eagles deal prior to hiring Rosenhaus. I believe, that means TO's former agent got that payday. By getting a new deal for Owens, Rosenhaus made bank that would have gone to his predecessor. Look, I am really not defending him here, I just look at it from other than a fan's POV. As a fan, I am sickened by him. Like IGY though, I believe TO was the one with the issues (he really seems to have a mental disorder), not Rosenhaus.

Nothing TO did prior to his relationship with DR came close to the charade he pulled with him. Up until that point, what did he do that can compare? Yelling at Garcia in SF? Taking a pen out of his shoe on MNF? Pom poms to celebrate?

Don't get me wrong - if my son was stud college baller, I'd look into hiring him for representation, but his actions started the motion on the awful 05' season. Without him, I've always felt the Eagles would have been SB40 champions.

I don't know what's worse....that the resident journalist is a terrible writer or that he can't comprehend a simple concept like "greatest game of the year."  Maybe he can bring this up at the next national sportswriters meeting and ask his peers to use words and phrases that are easier for him to grasp. 

It's simple:  The Eagles/Giants game last year was the most exciting, fun to watch regular season game in 2010 and what happened to each team in the following weeks or their end of season results have no impact in determining what the most entertaining game of the year was.  In other words, it was a great farging game.

I think if the Eagles had a SB or 2 already then it would be fine.  Would kind of hate to see them win their first one coming off a shortened season.  I'd enjoy it but probably not as much as if it were a full season.

And one of their other wins was helped along by the ScabSkins going 3-0.

No one seems to hold these against the Skins anymore, so I guess it would be worth it for the Birds to get a shortened season win.

Eagles “loading up and going for it” when lockout ends
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on June 15, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT
H. Roseman AP

The Eagles aren’t even trying to contain their excitement about their plan for when the lockout ends.

Following comments from owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Andy Reid about being aggressive in free agency, G.M. Howie Roseman and an unnamed source made it clear to Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports that the Eagles are ready to make big moves.

“This is the year,” one source told Silver. “We think we have a great shot to win it, and we’re loading up and going for it.”

Roseman added he was “ready for some action – right now.”

So what might that action consist of?  Silver’s source believes Albert Haynesworth is near the top of the list.

“[Defensive line coach Jim Washburn] is convinced he can get the most out of Haynesworth,” the Eagles source said. “He wants him badly.”

Also on the wishlist: Reid reportedly “loves” the idea of adding Plaxico Burress.  Reggie Bush was a player that interested the Eagles earlier in the offseason, although Bush may not want to be a backup there to LeSean McCoy and the team drafted scatback Dion Lewis.

“I think there are going to be a lot of opportunities in front of us, players looking for short-term deals who want to win a championship,” Roseman told Silver. “Any good player that we think can help our team, we’re going to take a hard look at.”

Roseman expects a “frenzy” of action when the league returns, rewarding the most aggressive and prepared teams.  It’s safe to expect the Eagles to be in the middle of the fun.

No thanks on Haynesworth

F Reggie Bush

Sign Nnamdi Asomugha

Quote
Buried in Silver’s article is news of taterskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth’s reaction to recent radio remarks from defensive coordinator Jim Haslett.  Per Silver, Haynesworth is “very, very [angry]” about the comments.  Haynesworth disputes the accuracy of the observations, and he is even more committed to not playing for the taterskins.

Appearing last week on 101 ESPN radio in St. Louis, Haslett criticized Haynesworth for refusing to listen to the team’s coaches.   “He can do almost anything he wants. He doesn’t want to do anything.  To me that’s the issue,” Haslett said. “He’s one of those guys you walk in a meeting and you tell him, ‘Put down the phone.’  The next day you have to tell him to put down the phone.  The next day, you tell him to put down the phone.

“You tell him, ‘Don’t read the newspaper in meetings.’  The next day you have to tell him the same thing.  It doesn’t stick; it’s an every-day thing.”

Silver mentions Haynesworth in an Eagles article because his former position coach in Tennessee, Jim Washburn, is now the defensive line coach in Philly.  Per Silver, Washburn is hoping for a reunion.

Bush sucks as an NFL running back, but I see very little risk in signing him. He'll return punts to lighten DeSean's load or something. Actually, who even knows if he'd do that. Basically he'd ride the pine and get 7 or 8 touches a game and be out of the league in two years. EXCITEMENT.

No risk on signing Bush.  He's going to be an angry man after getting the shaft in NoLa.  Let him run wild.  Like the idea of giving Jackson a break on punt returns.  Let Bush take some of the load.

I agree. The downside is Bushs' asking price for how much the Eagles would use him, but he does create the kinds of mismatches Reid loved with Westbrook and saving Pimp from some of his PR duties is probably a good idea.

Reid on Kolb

Quote
"He deserves an opportunity and I've got to make that decision because we like him," Reid said. "I've got to take care of the Eagles first. But on the other hand, does he deserve an opportunity to play and be a starting quarterback in the National Football League? Absolutely."

Sounds to me like they still have an offer on the table they consider worth it. I'd be satisfied if they could trade Kolb for a good solid OT or CB.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on June 17, 2011, 12:13:52 PM
sounds to me like part of his reasoning for trading cobb is because he likes him and hes been the gold soldier thru all this...which is effin bullshtein and should not be even 1% of the reason you are trading him

this is especially true since banner inc has been puffing its chest out about having a monster offseason and going for it all this year...if they are telling the truth then a starter material back up qb would be really important to have and you shouldnt trade him at all much less because you think he deserves a chance cause that is not looking out for the best interests of the birds
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread

They made it sound like that played into trading McNabb to the skins, but that turned out being bull also. Smoke and mirrors, Michael.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on June 18, 2011, 04:16:14 PM
they did do it for mcnabb by not sending him somewhere like buffalo...the difference in the mcnabb case is that snyder was involved so the skins truly were offering the most


my point with cobb is that he shouldnt be traded at all if their talk of going for it all this year is honest more so than not trading him to the highest bidder
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: PoopyfaceMcGee on June 19, 2011, 07:25:49 AM
Trading him for a 2012 draft pick alone would not be wise, agreed. They would have to get a player back that can contribute this year.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on June 19, 2011, 11:11:16 AM
i think they have to know how bad they would look if they loaded up for this year and then the season went down in flames because of mike kafka...you have to think they dont trade cobb...but if they do they have to go out and get a very good veteran qb...but thats not easy to do and even so you then have to teach the system to that guy hope he learns it and then is able to lead your team if needed...unlikely all that happens...

keep cobb go balls out this year and then move him next offseason

It still might not be easy to move him with a tag of maybe around $14 million give or take, which is guaranteed. It might depend on if he sees playing time and how well he does. Another knock in the head like last time and he's looking at free agency and lucky to land a starting job, and the Eagles would be lucky to get a worthwhile comp pick.

Unless the Eagles are blown away with an offer I'd hold onto him and franchise him. Teams are still in desperate need for a QB and that isn't changing any time soon. My spidey sense is telling me they have something worked out with the Cards and are just waiting till this mess is cleared up to pull the trigger.

The 14 mil or whatever would undoubtedly be part of the trade and I think the new team will basically roll that into his signing bonus. The 14 mil or whatever would still move with him.

Eskin on the Silver rumors:

-- Plax = NO because he's represented by Rosenhaus (and pimp still wants his big deal too) and his best redzone TD season was 7, the same as what Maclin did last year

Akeem Jordan got pinched in VA for assault and battery.

Quote
The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Firetap Bar and Grill on Evelyn Byrd Avenue at 2 a.m.

“They got into a verbal altercation, which led to a physical disorderly incident,” said police spokeswomen Mary-Hope Vass. “The incident was reported to us on Sunday afternoon. The victim went to the magistrate and obtained the warrant. Jordan turned himself in Sunday without any issues.”

Jordan was released on his own recognizance earlier today.

Asked the severity of the victim’s injuries, Vass said, “It was nothing life-threatening.”

The victim being referred to the magistrate is not usual, Vass said.

“A lot of times if there is not probable cause or a case like this that happened hours before and there is no physical evidence, we refer to victim to go to the magistrate and get their warrant,” she said.

The Eagles did not tender Jordan a contract before the lockout began.[\quote]

i think there's a major need for a guy like him..

the guy has given up 31 catches over the last 3 years and 2 TDs..the least targeted guy, by far in the league. if they have a chance to get him, they have to jump at it - guys like him never come around.

not to say drc wouldnt be a nice add, but the difference between the two players is huge.

hes definitely better but i totally disagree there is a major need....in fact the reason i dont think they go for him is because there isnt a major need for a number one corner...would i complain for one second if they got him hell effin no i just dont know if it would be the most prudent thing to do...unless of course they can sign him and still get all the other necessary pieces to fill their truly important needs...then its obviously a no brainer

Surprised no one has mentioned Carlos Rogers. The dude has frying pan hands, but has developed in a very solid corner. I'd take him over Joseph or Taylor.

I do like the idea of Rogers Cromartie, but I could also see the Cards trading the DB they picked this year, as in they made the pick for the Eagles, and had a wink wink worked out on the deal for Kolb.

Post by: ice grillin you on June 23, 2011, 03:21:37 PM
ill probably get bashed for this but interceptions are overrated as is a bad handed cornerback

cb's are there to cover the wr not intercept the ball...interceptions are a bonus stat

if a cb is dropping balls then that means the wr is not ctaching them and thats good enough for me

Post by: ice grillin you on June 23, 2011, 04:08:03 PM
recovered fumbles are pure luck

forced fumbles are nice but tackles are more important just because they happen on every play...the league leader in forced fumbles probably had less than ten on the whole season..same with int's they are great but samuel led the nfl alst year for cb's and had 7...strong coverage is much more important
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Sgt PSN on June 23, 2011, 04:10:55 PM
I'm leaning more towards agreeing with DH on this but I'm still somewhere in the middle.  INT's are more about timeliness to me.  If someone drops one at mid-field, I can tolerate it.  Dropping one in the redzone/endzone will piss me off though.

 
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: DH on June 23, 2011, 04:15:39 PM
a tackle or a pass breakup will usually not affect the outcome of the game; an INT or a foced/recovered fumble will

had tremon williams deflected vicks pass last year instead of picking it, there may have been a different SB champ

If a ball hits you in the hands - catch the goddamn thing.

Drop a pick and the next play the WR may catch it and score. Or the drive is extended. Or whatever. But what isn't happening is your team getting the ball because the butterfingered farg dropped it.

And Carlos Rogers is a bum.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on June 23, 2011, 08:32:39 PM
thats definitely the crux of this debate...whether or not you should catch the ball if given the chance

Post by: Dre Day on June 23, 2011, 08:42:02 PM
I'm siding more so with igy on this debate although I do see good points on both sides.

It takes talent to do what Asante does in regards to creating turnovers. But that also has it's down side, he sells out too much to get those turnovers. I'd rather have a shut down corner who gets 4 picks a season than I would a guy who is average in coverage but gets 10 picks a season. (for this argument I'm going to leave tackling ability out of the equation)

Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on June 23, 2011, 08:48:14 PM
all turnovers are potentially huge but on a play to play basis its much more important to be able to cover...if you can get a guy to do both then thats even better...but if you pick out the three or four plays a year where a guy gets an interception to prove their importance then ill pull out the 12-15 times a game where great coverage is invaluable
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: PhillyPhanInDC on June 23, 2011, 09:16:07 PM
And Carlos Rogers is a bum.

If you think he's a bum because he plays for the taterskins, that's fine. If you think he's a bum because he doesn't play as well as Joseph or Taylor you aren't paying attention.

Everyone wants Nmandi. He's the best out there. The fact is that you have a number one in Asante on one side. What they need to a serviceable to above average #CB, and Rogers has done that very well the past few years on an abysmal team.

Citing multiple sources, Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports that the Eagles “will show strong interest” in free agent Ike Taylor when the lockout ends. Taylor, of course, has spent the first eight years of his career with Pittsburgh.

Caplan also hints that Philadelphia is considering playing more zone coverage under first-year defensive coordinator Juan Castillo in order to complement changes up front. Along the defensive line, new position coach Jim Washburn is implementing a “wide-nine” philosophy in which both ends line up well outside of the offensive tackles trying to block them. The defensive tackles will be up-field pass rushers.

Taylor played right corner in Pittsburgh last year, and that’s the position Philadelphia sorely needs to upgrade. The Eagles rotated Dmitri Patterson and Ellis Hobbs at the position in 2010, and both flamed out.

PFT’s Mike Florio reported on May 15 that Taylor indeed plans to test the open market, and Taylor couldn’t have been clearer about his intentions to do so in a May 18 ESPN interview.

Taylor should also come at a much more affordable rate than Asomugha.

The Eagles are the 11th most valuable franchise in all of sports, worth $1.12 billion according to Forbes.

Both their ranking and value are unchanged from last year. Not bad for a team Jeffrey Lurie bought for $185 million in 1994.

While the Birds were among the world's elite when it comes to value, they ranked fourth out of four in the NFC East. All three of the Eagles' divisional rivals rank among the world's 10 most valuable franchises. The Cowboys ($1.81 billion) are second, the taterskins ($1.55 billion) are fourth and the Giants ($1.18 billion) rank eighth.

Answering your questions and commenting on your comments, here is Thursday’s dip into the mailbag.

Q. Do you believe the hype that Plaxico Burress is coming to the Eagles? Do you think he can still be a major contributor or will his role be diminished to that of a situational player?

-- Ed Liberati

A. I spoke to several NFL people recently who made it sound like Burress to the Eagles is a done deal. The buzz is that strong. Personally, I don’t see it. I don’t think it is a fit for either side.


The Eagles don’t need another receiver. They have DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Riley Cooper. At best, Burress would be No. 4. And I’m sure whatever contract Burress works out will have incentive clauses based on number of catches. Well, how many balls does he figure to catch in this offense? Not many. So it doesn’t make a lot of sense from his side either.

It is a long shot Burress ever regains his big-time status. He will spend this season just getting back into shape and regaining his timing. The fact he won’t have much time to assimilate into his new team because of the lockout only complicates matters. And let’s say he uses this year to regain his legs: he will be 35 next year. How many rusty 35-year-olds are playing wide receiver in the NFL?

In fairness, I was one of the skeptics who felt the Eagles’ signing of Michael Vick was folly. Clearly I was wrong. Vick has resurrected his career in ways I never thought possible. Maybe I’ll be wrong on Burress, too. I just think his best shot would be with St. Louis, Chicago or Oakland, teams that need a receiver. The Eagles don’t.

Who cares about Plaxico Burress? Total non story unless you're obsessed with the Dan Snyder method of running a team. If they sign him great, if not great. How many fourth WRs are that old and utterly incapable of contributing on special teams? I jet can't get excited one way or the other.

Morey turned out to be a good player on STs; perhaps Billy McMullen would be a better flop to compare him to...

Post by: ice grillin you on July 22, 2011, 07:17:39 AM
theres the chance that plax is completely finished and his time away sapped him of everything he ahd but if hes even 50% of what he was you def do it

not just red zone like sunny said but as a safety net for vick...we all know how bad the line was last year and we all know how vick can extend plays...with a big wr like plax who can go up and get a ball he would be perfect for those breakdown plays to give the option of throwing one up and having a guy on the team that can go get it

if they deem hes cooked in camp then you simply cut him...this really is a no brainer
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Dre Day on July 22, 2011, 07:53:14 AM
^Agreed

I'm not breaking the bank for him but if they paid him $2 million and he can contribute it really is a no-brainer. He adds a different element to the offense, they don't have that player that can go up and snatch a ball.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: DH on July 22, 2011, 09:28:10 AM
I said this a few weeks back and I'll say it again - if Plax was the man in the endzone against GB instead of Cooper, he either catches that pass or deflects it from away from Tramon Williams. I'm officially on board.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: reese125 on July 22, 2011, 10:55:31 AM
Difference is Williams no doubt has over the top help from the safety. They are not leaving a Plax one-on-one in the end zone like that late in the game.

When its Riley Cooper the corner can step to the side, give him a high five as he goes by him and wish him good luck because he still ain't catching it.

And leave someone like Jackson or Maclin one-on-one? I'd take that.

You don't think Cooper would have caught that ball if Williams wasn't there? He's not awful, he's just not the same kind of weapon Plax could be.

I like the idea of Burress on the Eagles, for most all the reasons stated before. I keep looking back at the Giants when they won the Superbowl, Plax played almost the entire season on a bum ankle and was still the best wr on the team. Say what you want about him being older and not having played, he's still a tough s.o.b. and could definatly help the Eagles. I do though wonder what kind of shape he's in and how long it would take him to get in a groove.

Ugh.

Let me repeat that.

Ugh.

Howard Eskin of WIP radio in Philly reports that the Eagles could quarterback Brett Favre as a backup to Mike Vick, after Kevin Kolb is shipped out of town.

Sources told Eskin, who serves as a sideline reporter for the team’s radio broadcasts, that it’s “possible” the Eagles will sign Favre.

The move would reunite Favre with Andy Reid, who was an assistant with the Packers before becoming a head coach in 1999.

There was a rumor making the rounds last week that Favre had approached the Seahawks about possibly becoming the successor to Matt Hasselbeck, a move that makes sense given the arrival of former Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell as offensive coordinator.  The Seahawks supposedly declined.  (The Seahawks privately are denying that any of this happened.)

In Philly, Favre would be the safety valve in the event Mike Vick gets injured or regresses.  And it would give Favre another chance to ride off into the sunset with a Lombardi Trophy in his pocket, even if he has to pry it from Mike Vick’s hands.

and now from mclane's twitter:

. that "a lot of things would need to fall into place" for it to happen. BTW, there's was never a denial about the #Eagles' interest.

I'm not discounting @howardeskin report about #Eagles interest in Brett Favre. But a team source told me it's still a "long shot" and ...

I would rather see Johnson, but several things I have read basically say it is a foregone conclusion he is going back to Carolina.  Edwards worries me a little because he is on a dline with 3 pro-bowl lineman.

  The NFL and NFLPA have an agreement. The lockout is over. So now let the fun, and free agency, begin.

Teams can begin reaching agreements with all free agents on Tuesday, meaning defensive end Ray Edwards can finally hit the open market. There already was a report today in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Edwards likely would land in Philadelphia and not with the Falcons, as some had speculated.

“I have no idea what’s going on," Edwards said when asked about him possibly signing with Philadelphia. "My agent called me. I really don’t know. We’ll see. That’s the expectation, I guess.”

Edwards, the Vikings' starting left end who was second on the team last season with eight sacks, had made it clear this offseason that he would not be returning to Minnesota. He seemed to soften that stance a bit on Monday.

“I have no idea," he said when asked if he still did not expect to be back. "I’m waiting to see from whoever is out there and weigh my options.”

Asked if the Vikings come in with a solid offer if he would be open to coming back, he said: "I don’t see them [doing that]. They have a lot of guys on offense they have to look at.”

Leslie Frazier will begin his first full season as the Vikings coach when players return and Fred Pagac has been promoted from linebackers coach to defensive coordinator. But Edwards sounded less than enthused when it was mentioned the power structure at Winter Park has been altered.

“I don’t think too much of the power structure has changed," he said. "Like I said, I’ll weigh my options and see what they come with, if they even come. That’s pretty much how I look at it on that end.”

The Vikings and other NFL teams are going to be in for a wild week when it comes to free agency. Things will move fast and a guy like Edwards could be off the market in quick fashion. Teams can't begin filing transactions until Friday evening but agreements will be reached long before that.

“My expectation is just get the best deal out there for me and go to whoever signs me and continue to produce for them as I’ve been producing for the Vikings," he said.

As for Edwards' boxing career, that appears to be on hold for a while. Edwards boxed once this spring, beating Duluth's T.J. Gibson at Grand Casino Hinckley, but his second fight was called off and now he's returning to football.

“Pretty much it's more than likely on hold," he said. "I don’t think anybody is going to let me box during the season. I'll continue to train and continue to work hard like I always do.”

So did a second fight almost take place? 'It was coming close but it was hard to find an opponent to help me move up the ranks in boxing," Edwards said. "We just didn’t get it done in a timely fashion.”

[igy]these free agency rumors are SO unexciting![/igy]

On rye or wheat?
4:15 p.m.—Many taterskins fans have been hoping that the team would release Albert Haynesworth the very moment that the NFL opened for business after the lockout. Well, 10:01 a.m. came and went and Albert was still employed by the Washington taterskins.
Haynesworth is not there because the taterskins particularly want him to be. Last year’s ugliness revolving around the $100 million man is still a topic of discussion and Mike Shanahan does not want to risk it happening again.
No, Haynesworth is here because they do not want him to be a Philadelphia Eagle. The taterskins strongly suspect that if they release him he will head up I-95 to play for Jim Washburn, who was his position coach in Tennessee, and on the Eagles’ 3-4 defense. The taterskins to not want to face a motivated Haynesworth twice a year.
In fact, the taterskins are so determined to keep the Eagles from getting their hands on the free agent bust that they will let him go for almost nothing. "They'll give him away for a ham sandwich instead of cutting him and running the risk of his showing up in Philadelphia," a taterskins source told Clark Judge of CBS Sports.
Do you want mustard on that?

Sal Pal also reported the Eagles are talking to Babin's agent. (Cole and Babin are hunting buddies and share the same agent). Don't know how I feel about Babin, on the one hand he had a lot of sacks last season and Washburn is here, on the other hand he's 31, only had one good season, and was basically the 5th DE in the rotation when he was here.

Actually I was kidding but Bradley isn't bad for a backup or spot starter.  Plus whichever free agent they sign will probably go down in a heap during his first practice, so having a guy there who's at least familiar with where the cafeteria is at Lehigh would be nice.

Teams gotta overpay at this point. Under the new CBA, teams have to spend within 99% of their cap for the next two seasons. There's gonna be a number of deals like this.  Guys like Asumoguah are really gonna cash in on that, but bums like Mikell are gonna benefit too.

If they lose Bradley and Sims, they have to sign someone right?

They can't go into the season with just Fokou, Gaither, Chaney and Clayton.  Let's see, they have an OL coach that is going to give DC his best shot with almost no training camp and you are hoping to have rookies that haven't even signed be contributors.  Anyone else see a problem with this "plan".  I saw that Poz was signed by the Jaguars which sucks.  Barrett Ruud could really help.

The big loser

The Philadelphia Eagles entered the free-agent period in arguably the best situation of any team in football. As one of the league's best teams at handling the salary cap, the Eagles are in possession of one of the NFL's rarest and most enviable situations: A spare starting quarterback. While the jury is still out on Kevin Kolb's professional viability, it's clear there are teams who value him as an immediate starter with significant long-term potential. And while the Eagles have a huge hole in their lineup, it's at cornerback, one of the few positions where this market is strong.

On Tuesday, just about everything that could have gone wrong for the Eagles did.

Let's start with Kolb, who may not even be a valuable asset by this time tomorrow. By signing Jackson, the Seahawks signaled that they're not going to be serious players in any sort of Kolb sweepstakes. The Bengals don't appear to be interested in Kolb, having started negotiations with Gradkowski while suggesting that Carson Palmer isn't going to be playing anywhere else in 2011. (Palmer didn't have a great Tuesday, either.) That leaves the Cardinals as the only viable suitor for Kolb. Despite that fact, the Eagles are reportedly asking for a first-round pick and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, a haul that would make sense only if the Eagles had leverage. Instead, the Cardinals could just choose to sign Hasselbeck or deal a midround pick for Orton while holding onto Rodgers-Cromartie, leaving the Eagles without a trading partner.

The other problem for the Eagles is that Rodgers-Cromartie might not be what they're looking for. While he would be a huge upgrade on Dimitri Patterson, he's a step below Johnathan Joseph and several below Nnamdi Asomugha, each of whom could be viable targets for Philly in free agency. In an ideal world for the Eagles, they would get a chance to bid on Asomugha and Joseph, and if they strike out, still have the opportunity to get Rodgers-Cromartie as part of a package for Kolb. It's possible that things could still work out that way, but it's becoming very clear that the market for Kolb is getting squeezed. That leaves the Eagles in danger of ending up with two quarterbacks and no cornerback.

The Asomugha market ramped up on Tuesday when the Steelers inked Ike Taylor to a four-year deal. The Taylor signing shouldn't directly affect the Eagles, since they really should have avoided him anyway, but it takes one of the most prominent cornerbacks available off of the market. Teams like the Texans and Lions who might have settled for adding Taylor now have one fewer cornerback to go for, creating more demand for Asomugha among those teams desperate to add a star corner. The Ravens also appear to be considering a move for Asomugha, having cleared out cap space by releasing veterans Willis McGahee, Derrick Mason, and Todd Heap.

Philly also had a curious day with its own free agents. Although it's possible that the Eagles were comfortable letting safety Quintin Mikell go without any sort of offer, it seems likely they were hoping to let him find a small deal on the market before matching it and keeping him in the fold for the short-term. Mikell signed a four-year deal with the Rams on Tuesday to replace O.J. Atogwe, rejoining him with former Eagles coach Steve Spagnuolo. He's a declining player who whiffed on a team-high 12 tackles last year, but the Eagles are extremely light in the secondary and relying on rookie Jaiquawn Jarrett and second-year man Nate Allen to recover from a torn patella he suffered at the end of December.

The Eagles have also reportedly decided to pass on re-signing all of their unrestricted free agents, including starting linebacker Stewart Bradley. Bradley was expected to re-sign with the team and move to outside linebacker while creating a spot for wunderkind Jamar Chaney in the middle, but the Eagles appear ready to give up on the oft-injured Bradley. Finally, Philadelphia rescinded the transition tag placed on kicker David Akers, making him an unrestricted free agent and likely ending his tenure in Philadelphia. Akers and Mikell, coincidentally were the last two players left from the 2004 Eagles team that made the Super Bowl.

I disagree that ARC is worse than Jonathan Joseph.  That said, if the trade with Arizona falls through, I would be okay with the Eagles keeping Kolb.  Of course, it sounds like AR made some sort of promise to Kolb to trade him so he could start somewhere.

Color me annoyed. Even if the Kolb for DRC and a nice pick thing comes through, there are still a ton of holes to fill. Linebacker, Safety and D-line come to mind.

"We've really already split up assignments," Banner said Thursday after owners voted to approve a proposed new collective bargaining agreement. "We will begin engaging with multiple people right away."

Some deals may take a few days, some ideas may die out very quickly, and others might come together within hours, Banner said.

"None of this can take very long," Banner said, referring to the compressed schedule cramming together free agency, training camp, and preseason games as a result of the NFL's lockout. It's not clear exactly when teams will be able to begin signing free agents - it all hinges on if or how quickly players ratify the proposed labor deal.

Whenever a labor deal is approved by both sides, the NFL time line calls for an initial period when teams can re-sign their own free agents and sign draft picks. In that same window, they can discuss trades and talk to other teams' free agents but not complete any deals until another several days have passed.

"If we had our dream outcome, we know what that is," Banner said. "The reality is 31 other teams will compete to disrupt our plan, so we won't be just calling one person that we're focused on."

Added team owner Jeffrey Lurie, "We're in a good position to make quality moves that we think will really help the team. You never know how it's going to play out, but we're a team that's very optimistic of what we can immediately accomplish."

Maybe they're trying to send DeSean a message that he's not the only small, fast guy on the team... and thus is worth much less than he thought. Let's see how this pans out.

Oh, and Babin cannot report to camp until August 4. All FA signings and trade acquisitions that receive a new contract have to wait to report due to the CBA. So, if they can wrap up Jackson by then, it would be convenient.

Vick, Eagles in initial stages of contract talks
Posted by Mike Florio on July 28, 2011, 2:25 PM EDT
MichaelVickGetty Getty Images

It has been widely believed that the Eagles won’t do a long-term deal with quarterback Mike Vick until later in the season, after they see whether he will continue to play in 2011 like he played in 2010.

Though it’s possible that the deal won’t be done until the regular season has commenced, the talks have at least begun.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that initial conversations have occurred.  The content of those discussions, and the timeline for a potential resolution, isn’t known.

The fact that Vick’s one-year contract — and thus his one-year cap number — currently sits at $16 million could be nudging the Eagles toward an extension that would count less against the $123 million minimum in 2011.  (The official salary cap is $120 million per team, but each team can choose to go over the limit by $3 million this year, so the real cap is $123 million.)

At a time when players like receiver DeSean Jackson are looking for long-term deals, extending Vick’s contract would be an easy way to create cap room.  The real question is whether the Eagles need to see more from Vick before they’ll be comfortable with giving him even more money.

So they've signed their rookies (mostly), signed Babin, traded Kolb, filled a need at CB and are beginning talks with Vick. DeSean is holding out.

Everyone is having a hissy fit about the front office but isn't this more or less exactly where we thought the team would be right now?

You're preaching to the choir. Not one person on :CF has called him selfish or really criticized him at all. The most vehement hate he's getting is from people that are ok with the Eagles taking a few more days to get his contract right. Absolutely no one has said he should shut up and play here.


By the way, the national media's moved on from Babin/Kolb/DRC news and is all over the idea of Vince Young being brought in. I guess since NFLN and ESPN both actually sent reporters to Lehigh this year, they need something sexy to talk about.

Schefter saying that there is mutual interest between the Eagles and VY. Somebody call Russell and make sure he's ok.

I don't want to discourage this talk because I totally recognize the humor in it, but if the Eagles signed him to be a backup I would be totally fine with it. He would finally be exactly what he should be. A backup QB who might maybe someday get a chance to start if he works really hard and figures out how to play.

Well he's definitely in the wrong system, but has shown little to rule out the possibility of simply being awful. It wouldn't be horrible to take a flyer on him, but either trading for him or expecting him to be some kind of addition is too much.

Report: Vince Young wants to play in Philly

Posted by Mike Florio on July 28, 2011, 8:14 PM EDT

The Eagles need a backup quarterback.  Quarterback Vince Young needs a job.

Sometimes, it’s just that simple.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Young is interested in joining the Eagles.  Some around the league believe that the Eagles are the favorite to land Young.

And just like Mike Vick expressed a willingness to welcome Brett Favre is a backup, Vick has no qualms about Vince Young joining the team.  “It would be good for Vince,” Vick said, via PhillySportsDaily.com.  “I don’t know how true it is, but I think it would be a great opportunity for Vince to come in and learn.  We’ll see.”

Young has no experience in the West Coast offense.  But we’ve got a feeling based on what Reid has done with every quarterback he’s every coached that he could get the most out of Young.

Which could be downright scary for every team the Eagles play.

"It's either they don't want me... or their not really good at negotiating

Fine. Good special teams and situational guy.

They should have waited a week so I could get locked in at 20-1. I will still hit the 8-1 though. And over 10 wins.

Bunkley for a fifth? I'm ok with that. I loved the pick back then but he obviously never developed his rushing skills.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Dre Day on July 30, 2011, 08:29:00 PM
Bunkley's problem is he never improved from his first season. He still tries to rely on raw power and has little to no technique. He's an undersized DT but was still under the impression he was in college where he could just push O-lineman around. I thought they'd be able to get more than a 5th but since they got Jenkins I'm glad they got anything for him. Eagles are pretty stacked for next years draft.

Got it.

It's not about him winning it. It's about him being the best option right at the start of camp due to the lack of NFL-caliber linebackers on the team. I honestly don't know if he is or can be really good. I just know that if he were already good enough to be the starting MLB on a Super Bowl team, he probably would have been drafted before the 4th.

if matthews was a first round pick i think wed all be optimistic but still cautious....the fact that hes a fourth rounder and expected to run a defense is whats scary...especially with banner incs track record of drafting linebackers

but as long as romey feels good we all should too

So what is the plan at linebacker? I was assuming they'd add a guy like Barnett but now he's gone. And I know they don't value the LB position but they can't possibly be planning to go into a season with Chaney/Fokou/Jordan/Clayton/Matthews can they?

That's exactly what I was thinking.

And it's not that I think he's the next Dick Butkus either.  I just think it's comical that the usual idiots in this forum trash a guy before he's even played a down. 

And how many players have been drafted after the first or second round and become HOF's?  Conversely, how many players have been top 10 picks and ended up epic busts?

We don't know if he's gonna be a player or not.  The Eagles do and although they have a horrendous track record where linebackers are concerned, I'm not about to write off a guy before he's even had a chance to put a farging jersey on yet.

I dont care if Castillo dumbs the system down to 3 plays, its too easy to have major concerns for a 1st yr guy (especially a MLB) to know what hes doing out there.

The defensive system is only half of it. Its about all the other shtein these OC's are going to throw at him. You put someone in there that at least has been there before and has the experience at the position that can recognize different offensive alignments and defensive blitz packages. Even if Matthews is the next Butkus, the amount of mistakes hes going to make first year could very well be the difference in their so called super bowl run. Why even take the chance? Get a friggin MLB.

where did i say that i didn't want a veteran linebacker?  where did i say anything of the sort, reese?

everyone else is pointing out the obvious (fourth round pick, rookie, doesn't know the defense, blah, blah blah) and i'm not disagreeing with any of that either.

i said people throwing dirt on his career before he's even taking a farging snap is premature and stupid and it is.

and it occurs to me that even a veteran would have to learn the defense the same as matthews would, right?  the only advantage a veteran would have is that he's actually played in the nfl before.  it's a big advantage, and again, i'm certainly not against them signing a veteran.  hell, i've been begging for them to upgrade the linebackers forever.  all that aside, i'm looking forward to seeing what matthews can do, that's all.

I would be ok with him. And he can throw it too so that makes Big Red and Marty wet.

But it seems as if the vet RB market hasn't shaken out just yet. Once the price drops we'll see 'em start signing.

I wouldn't mind seeing Harrison back either
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Eagaholic on August 01, 2011, 09:40:33 PM
I'd love to see Harrison back. Like Ronnie Brown too (wildkatz!).

With physicals, sometimes it comes down to whether a teams wants a player to pass or fail. That said, I wouldn't think Reid tried to dupe the Browns because they've been trading partners a good bit in the past and Reid knows he'd still has to pass their physical in Cle (without getting a staph infection).

As far as starting Matthews at MLB, it's a bad idea. Or at the very least a very sub-optimal option for many reasons. First, he's a rookie on a short off season trying to learn a defense from a new DC who probably doesn't even know it himself yet and has never coached D. Matthews also should be seen as a leader by the other players and know how to position other newer guys, which isn't possible unless they signed a rookie contract after he did.

As the guy with the green dot, he ideally should be a 3 down LB which means between run stopping and pass coverage he should very good at one and at least adequate in the other, and neither of which we know about yet. It's a lot of pressure and a hell of a lot to ask to know the D, to be a leader, and to be a good all around player as a rookie, regardless of where he was drafted. And being a 4th rounder it will be harder to earn the respect of the other players that a big name early 1st round pick from a big time program would. All that said, I don't think Matthews is really their plan A at mike and they are trying to look at other things.

After becoming one of the Eagles’ many high-profile acquisitions over the last week, Vince Young proclaimed Philadelphia the “Dream Team.” Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan may have given the Eagles a different nickname today.

Speaking to reporters at Cowboys camp, Ryan said that he was happy with the Cowboys’ relative lack of big-name free-agent signings because he thinks the players the Cowboys already have are good enough. And then he said he’s looking forward to playing a certain other team that has received more attention in free agency.

“These are proven players, and that’s what we need,” Ryan said. “I don’t know if we win the all-hype team, I think that might have gone to somebody else, but we’re going to beat their ass when we play them.”

Ryan didn’t mention the Eagles by name, but I think it’s safe to say that’s who he was referencing. And with that, Rob Ryan has given us a brash statement that even his brother Rex will find it tough to top.

I'm getting to the point with all these signings that there is no way this team will gel until well into the season, if they do at all. There is also a potential for some ego problems with all the top-flight guys they've brought in. Maybe it's the negadelphian in me coming out, at first I was happy as hell with the Jenkins and Nmandi signings, but after just reading how Ronnie Brown "came here for a super bowl", I'm starting to get concerns about every team gunning to knock these guys down a peg, and also for it to become completely dysfunctional at some point.

Time for a "The Philadelphia Eagles Are Going to Suck In 2011" thread?

I'm getting the same vibe though....adding a couple stars is nice, but it really seems like the Eagles are collecting big name after big name ala the racists.  The only difference between the Eagles and Skins though is that the Eagles aren't overpaying for a bunch of players who are well passed their prime.  If this were a normal year and all of these trades and signings happened back in April, May, June, then it'd be one thing.  But thanks to the lockout, the shortened training camp and preseason definitely hurts the Eagles since it doesn't give all these new guys time to gel with the old. 

Not to mention that Vince Young is trying to learn Andy Reid's playbook in about 4 weeks.  Playbooks have lots of pictures though, right?  So I guess that's a good thing.

Never bring an unfamiliar gun to a firefight is the point I'm trying to make. It's a ton of brand new faces your are going to depend on to deliver you to the promised land. Given more time to gel and work together I'd be more confident. The Eagles have a much more stable, and obviously better staff in place than the Skins ever did when they did all of their dumbness. I am not concerned the guys they signed aren't talented with many years left in the tank, what I am concerned about is that adding them all at once and expecting to operate like a well oiled machine in a few weeks is risky.

It could free up more like $10m if they wanted it to, but they are usually smart about splitting the signing bonus into signing and roster bonuses... Helps accelerate some cap hit and prevent dead money being too much of a problem later.

Speaking of Vick it's looking like a long term deal might be announced in the next few hours or days. He was on the radio with Eskin and Reese but had to run because of an 'urgent' matter. Then Lurie said this:

Ever since they got rid of McNabb and Clay Matthews smashed Kolb's head into the ground, things have started to change. Actually, it was probably right around the time they promoted Shakedown Howie to GM. I'm not saying the change is for the better, but they are at least giving a shot to the whole large roster turnover thing. Even some guys who could play, like Akers, were replaced - either with top-shelf talents or with high-ceiling unknowns/rookies.

Pretty weird, but the team should be fun to watch. And what do we care? We root for laundry.

Andy Reid calls Jason Avant "the best inside WR in the NFL." (http://www.delcotimes.com/articles/2011/08/08/sports/doc4e3f4ff2d83bc031876342.txt?viewmode=fullstory)

I like Avant a lot. Certainly has some of the best body control and hands in the league and certainly a valuable player. The Eagles only had a chance to get him in the 4th round because of his slow 40 time, and yet they still drafted Max Jean-Gilles before him.

But the best inside WR in the NFL? I don't know. Feva probably agrees.

Lots of stuff on the Eagles in today's MMQB (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/peter_king/08/08/tour/index.html?eref=sihp&sct=hp_t11_a1)

But here's something we discussed before:
Quote
One last point for you capaholics: The logic for redoing Vick, at least part of it, would be to lower his cap figure from $16.1 million to some manageable figure maybe half that size. The same league source told me that won't happen. The Eagles will keep Vick's cap number at the same level as it is currently, because if they reduce it, that is money they'll have to include in some other year of the cap. Why not allocate it to the 2011 cap if they have room, so they can have maximum flexibility in future years with Vick on the payroll?
That's right -- the Eagles are in such good shape with their cap that they can afford to redo Vick's deal and easily afford to keep his number at a gargantuan level. That's a team with a plan.

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/eagles/20110810_Paul_Domowitch__Eagles__young_linebackers_will_be_tested.html?page=2&c=y

Quote
The three players currently at the top of the depth chart - Fokou, second-year strongside linebacker Jamar Chaney and rookie middle linebacker Casey Matthews - have a grand total of 3 years of NFL experience. Collectively, they've got just 19 NFL starts, none at the positions they currently are playing.

So they're taking their MIKE from last season in Chaney - a guy who did a solid job against the run, but was weak against the pass - and moving him to the SAM where he'll have to defend the pass. Taking a rookie WIL and moving him inside, and taking a college SAM and putting him at the WIL. What a clusterfarg. If you have a lack of talent at one position - which the Eagles clearly do - the least you could do is to play to those players strengths instead of their weaknesses. Every year there's something Andy doesn't address, whether it's LCB last season, punt returner, Fullback...any doubt it's LBs this season?
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on August 10, 2011, 08:00:58 AM
its basically the linebackers every season altho this year is especially awful

corners better be all that they are advertised and more because the middle of the field is going to be exposed

if you include fokou running around the middle of the field with TE's you have matthews fokou allen and coleman guarding the seams and centerfield
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Drunkmasterflex on August 10, 2011, 10:48:26 AM
Matthews was not a WIL at Oregon, unless you are saying that is where you think he should be playing. While I am not exactly overflowing with confidence when it comes to these LBs, I don't know that they can be any worse than what has been out there before.

Not me.

I don't post much during the offseason. I've been a member of :CF 99% 'cause of the Eagles and the NFL and not much for other stuff. I don't care were you go on the internet, here is were you can get anything Eagles all the time. It's like everyone is racing Big Ed to see who can post info first. So, in order to make football season complete for the :CF crazies I'll be here more often.

its basically the linebackers every season altho this year is especially awful

corners better be all that they are advertised and more because the middle of the field is going to be exposed

if you include fokou running around the middle of the field with TE's you have matthews fokou allen and coleman guarding the seams and centerfield

As far as the middle of the field being wide open I think that is one of the big roles Asomugha is going to fill.  I can't remember where but there was a quote by Joselio talking about how no more TEs killing them when referring to Nnamdi.

assy but classy better go on the other teams number one and end that side of the field...the last thing he should be worrying about is covering te's or manning the middle of the field...now maybe te's wont be ruuning all over the field this year because now a safety can help out the lb's because assys side of the field wont need extra attention but assinging TE responsibility to him would be assynine

I would think that is what he was referring to, that being said I could see "Assy" being put all over the field.  They should be able to get away with that considering the other two corners they have.

I don't think you have to just put him on the other teams #1.

Quote
However, there is one surprise: At one point in the video, the narrator explains which types of hits are allowed on quarterbacks by saying, “glancing or incidental contact will not be a foul.” With that, video is shown of Trent Cole touching the back of Peyton Manning’s helmet during last year’s Colts-Eagles game. The word “legal” flashes on the screen when that play is shown.

That’s a surprise because Cole was flagged for a personal foul on that play, and afterward NFL V.P. of officiating Carl Johnson defended the call. This year, the NFL says, that won’t be a penalty. We’ll see when the season starts if referees can really resist the temptation to protect star quarterbacks.

Post by: reese125 on August 14, 2011, 08:45:23 PM
this comment sums it up perfectly:

If a RB “breaks the plane” for a split-second, its a TD without question.

If a WR lands with both feet, elbow, helmet, and a backflip, he has to ‘maintain possession through the play’.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: ice grillin you on August 14, 2011, 08:49:16 PM
really doesnt sum up anything...the plane in this case is the goal line...which is a completely different animal

not to mention a rb already has control of the ball when crossing said line...the wr is trying to catch it

its really night and day
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: reese125 on August 14, 2011, 09:07:02 PM
not night and day at all.

bottom line its about maintaining control of the ball that makes it a td. by your theory the rb already has control. well, his ass should have to "maintain" that control of the ball pass the plane all the way to the ground to get a td.

Classic apples/oranges here.  He had possession going across the goal line = touchdown.  The receiver did not have possession until be controlled it with both hands in bounds with both feet down.

Why would he have to maintain it past the plane?  Pretty sure the point of a plane is self-explanatory, Reese.  Either he breeches it or he doesn't.

Calvin Johnson already clearly had possession in the end zone. So why doesnt the play stop there and award a TD? Johnson has to hold on to the thing after two rolls while a RB just has to squeak the tip of the ball pass the goal line. They both have possession.

In the field of play a receiver must control the ball thoughout the play until he is ruled down. Same rules apply in the endzone. A rb on the other hand already has established possession when carrying the ball so all he needs to do is break the plane 

So just catching the ball itself is not a catch in the endzone just as it wouldn't be in the field of play. Had CJ held onto the ball it wouldn't have been an issue in the first place.

This has been my stance pretty much from the beginning.  Along with the fact that 2012 draft picks do nothing to improve the team right now, so trading Samuel away today weakens the team for a year.  If they want to trade him they can still do it in March or April before the draft and will likely get the same return that they would now.

Ingram finally healthy, working for a job

By Paul Domowitch
Philadelphia Daily News

Daily News Sports Columnist

BETHLEHEM - Two years ago, Cornelius Ingram was a very popular guy up here at Lehigh. He was a fifth-round pick getting first-round media attention.

On a clear day, he could see forever. He was a chiseled 6-4, 250-pound tight end with 4.5 speed and glue-stick hands who wowed everyone, including the coaching staff, with his impressive play in the spring camps and OTAs and in the first few days of training camp.

Then he tore the ACL in his left knee for the second time in less than a year, and just like that, a promising young player became yesterday's news.

He tried to come back last year, but the knee still wasn't completely healed, and he was released before the start of the season. In mid-November, the Eagles signed him to their practice squad.

The left knee finally is whole again now. The speed is back. The cutting ability is back. But a lot of time has passed. Two years is a lifetime in the NFL. The bright young prospect now is the preseason longshot.

He is the fourth tight end on a team that will keep no more than three. There is Brent Celek, there is highly regarded second-year man Clay Harbor, there is free-agent signee Donald Lee. And then there is Ingram.

"I try not to even worry about the circumstances or the situation," Ingram said. "I'm just focusing on one thing every day and trying to get better at it. That's most important to me.

"I can honestly say this is truly the best I've felt since my junior year [at Florida, before he tore his ACL the first time]. No hitching in none of my routes. I'm able to come off the ball full-speed and do everything with no limitations. That was actually the most important thing to me. Everything else will take care of itself as long as I stay healthy."

The problem with being at the bottom of the depth chart is you don't get nearly as many reps in practice as the guys above you, which means a much smaller window to move up the depth chart.

"Whenever I get my opportunities, I definitely have to take advantage of it," said Ingram, who didn't have any receptions last week in the Eagles' 13-6 preseason win over the Baltimore Ravens. "That's just how the business goes. But I'm just glad I'm healthy and the coaches know I'm healthy, and that helps out a lot."

The coaches have been impressed with how he's looked. But he has a lot of ground to make up and not a lot of time to do it.

"He's having an outstanding camp," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. "He really flashes brilliance. Now he's got to play at that high level on a consistent basis. He just hasn't been on the field much with our offensive structure in the last couple of years."

The reality is, the only way Ingram is going to wind up on the Eagles' season-opening, 53-man roster next month is if Celek or Harbor or Lee gets hurt, which is always a possibility in the NFL.

But there are 31 other teams in the league, and a good many of them - most of them, in fact - don't have the tight-end depth the Eagles have right now. Ingram is well aware of that. He knows that if he can continue to play well and prove that his knee is sound, he likely will have a job somewhere when the season opens.

"Something will work out," he said. "So I'm always positive about the situation. I go out with no worries and just try to play every play full-speed. And I've been feeling good doing that."

The sky seemed to be the limit for Ingram heading into his final season at the UF in 2008. He was considered the best pass-catching tight end in his draft class. With a solid senior season, he figured to go as high as the second round. But he tore his ACL in preseason camp and missed his senior year. NFL teams had reservations about the quality of the repair job on Ingram's knee when they examined it before the draft. Which is why he lasted until the fifth round. Those reservations turned out to be justified when he tore the ACL again.

"It's been tough," Ingram acknowledged. "You want to compete. You want to be on the field playing. Sitting out due to an injury, it hurts. Especially when you see guys being successful. You want to be a part of it.

"But guys who had been through back-to-back ACL injuries talked to me and told me it takes up to 2 years sometimes [to come all the way back]. I'm like, oh man, don't tell me that. It was just one of those things where I had to be patient.

"It's been a long journey, but I'm back. There's no swelling. No problems at all. I feel 100 percent and I feel really good."

Oddly enough, the realization that the knee finally was all the way back came on a basketball court, not a football field.

Ingram spent most of the 4 1/2-month lockout in Gainesville, Fla., training with many of his former Gator teammates, including fellow NFL players Percy Harvin, Louis Murphy, Brandon Spikes and the Pouncey twins, Mike and Maurkice. They would train in the weight room and on the track and football field in the morning, then move into the gym for some intense, trash-talking hoops in the afternoon.

"We trained every day, we hooped every day," said Ingram, a former all-state high school basketball player who played 19 games for the UF basketball team in 2004-05. "That confidence [in his knee] came back. There were no limitations.

"Once, I dunked. Then I dunked a couple of more times. That's when I thought, I'm out here on this hard court. Once I get back out on the field again, I'll be fine. Of course, I was running routes at home as well. But once I got out here [at camp] and started to make plays and move around like I did my junior year in college, I knew I was back."

Ingram remembers how it was before he reinjured the knee 2 years ago. He remembers all of the hype and the media attention and the impressed looks from the coaches. But that was then and this is now.

"It was fun," he said. "It was a great experience. But that's something I don't really think a lot about. I love to smile. It doesn't matter if I'm being interviewed or not. If you guys see me walking around, I'm probably going to be smiling.

"It definitely is different now, though. Coming in [2 years ago], I had a great minicamp and was having a great training camp, and then I got hurt. But I don't look back. If I focus on the things I need to do, I'll be fine."

Yes he will.

Really kind of sucks we never got to see this kid do his thing. Now that he might be able to show it, he'll be doing it somewhere else.

Linebackers Adjusting, Improving

By Bo Wulf

Posted 31 minutes ago

The Eagles linebackers know they're under the spotlight. While the rest of the defense is littered with Pro Bowlers and first-round picks, the three starters at linebacker consist of two seventh-rounders and a rookie fourth-round pick. So when things don't go well, such as the first half against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jamar Chaney, Moise Fokou and Casey Matthews know they're in the crosshairs.

"People have to have something to talk about, and right now they're talking about the linebackers and how young we are, how inexperienced," said Chaney. "But we come in here and we work. At the end of the day, we're going to get the job done. We don't have any proven linebackers here, but every linebacker that's ever been in this league had to come into the league unproven. No linebacker ever came into the NFL that's good right now with people saying, 'Oh, he's going to be a Hall of Fame player,' before he even got here. He had to go on the field and prove it, and that's what we're looking to do."

"It's something we can rally around," said Matthews. "Obviously we're new to this stuff. We're getting more comfortable out there each and every game we play. We have to learn from the mistakes and go from there, get it corrected."

Defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, himself a former linebacker, said that he knows the team may experience some growing pains with its young corps in the middle of the field. But what matters most is that they keep improving as the season goes along.

"The linebackers will be ready to win the Super Bowl," Castillo said. "Remember, it takes 16 weeks, and then really whoever is playing their best during the playoffs. So when you look at it there's time to develop. You can say that there's not, but the key is, who's playing or fundamentally who's the best come week eight, nine, ten, and during that crunch time. And over the years we've been pretty good during that time, and we'll continue to do that. The young kids will get better just because they're working the proper fundamentals."

The linebackers are also undergoing a change to their fundamentals. Most teams teach their linebackers to lead with their shoulder when trying to shed blocks from offensive linemen. This season, Castillo and linebackers coach Mike Caldwell are emphasizing a technique that asks the linebackers to use their hands more, which theoretically provides a better opportunity to make plays.

"You can make more plays like that if you do it the right way," said Chaney. "When you take on somebody with your shoulder, it's one for one. If I take on a guard or somebody with my shoulder, we're trading each other. He's wasting himself and I'm wasting myself. It's not like I'm going to make a play. You might luck out and make some plays like that, but most of the good linebackers, they do a good job of using their hands and getting off blocks and they're able to make plays they're not supposed to make."

Meanwhile, Chaney is glad just to be on the field. After an ostensibly dirty play by Steelers offensive lineman Ramon Foster could have potentially knocked Chaney out for the season, the linebacker is less angry than thankful.

"It won't help me none to be mad about it," he said, "we don't play the Steelers unless we make it to the Super Bowl and they make it too."

Chaney added that Foster apologized to Chaney via Twitter and that he believes the intent was not malicious.

Talking about the most electric QB's of all-time, they've got Vick and Favre and Young listed as expected, and also Randall....pictured in a Vikings jersey.  Does anyone really think of the Vikings when they think of Cunningham?  He had 1 really good year with them and it was at the end of his career when he wasn't exactly lighting the world on fire with his mobility.  And the pic they used is awful too.  He looks like he's about to be sacked rather than do something spectacular.

They have to do something. Matthews was better last night and may turn out to be a good linebacker at some point. But right now, even in his better game, he was an embarrassment in coverage. And since he also didn't look stellar in stopping the run, that sort of limits his usefulness at an important LB spot.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: PoopyfaceMcGee on August 26, 2011, 12:37:44 PM
You forgot about requirement 3 for a super awesome linebacker, which he is 2nd best in the world at:

1. stopping the run
2. defending the pass
3. looking like Clay Matthews


In other news, the Eagles are reportedly fielding multiple offers for Joselio (http://www.csnphilly.com/08/26/11/Source-A-good-chance-Eagles-trade-CB-Han/news_eagles.html?blockID=554650&feedID=704).

A midget Clay Matthews, sure. It isn't a good sign when the Jewy sideline reporter is bigger than your starting middle linebacker.

I hope Joselio goes on to have a good career as a starter in the AFC somewhere. Preferably a team that wants to get rid of a really good linebacker.

Can't really fault the Eagles, who else was out there? If Harris were healthy (and yeah, judging from injury history it's a big 'If') he'd have been a possible starter. Justice is average but he gets the job done for the most part, and they drafted a RG in the first round. Not really sure what other options were out there.

yeah this goes way beyond this "all in" offseason..but you absolutely can still fault the eagles....the watkins pick was bad but other than that they made their own bed long before this off season and it was too late to get out of it this year...i believe they currently have 15 offensive lineman on the roster and exactly two of them are good...herremans and peters...thats pretty much inexcusable


btw has anyone caught the 2010 eagles nfl films yearbook....its such an awesome watch...the shots of vick from the sideline cameras are incredible...it lliterally looks like they are replaying it in fast motion but they arent...vick is so farging fast is sick

and there one shot from the titans game where i believe its ernie sims comes in and trys to literally murder chris johnson

Agreed. I don't know whether he'll be a bust or 10 time pro-bowler but what I do know is he's had about a month to learn how to play in a new system at a higher level.

Several reports have been out that Hanson is on the trading block. Makes sense considering the depth at CB and Marsh looks like he has some talent. I think Lindley is the odd man out. I'll be happy if they get anything for Hanson.

Seems like the Rams and Eagles are talking per Howard Balzer. He says the contract could be an issue.

It might not be as frightening if you were only talking about one spot on the OL.

I'd feel ok about the LG/RG spots if the C were a stud, even a guy on the decline like Kruetz would have been a nice pickup. That said Howard Mudd will earn it if people still call him the best in the business after this season.

speaking of its so funny and kind of embarrassing for juany that you never hear his name unless someone is taking about how he runs up and down the practice field and head butts guys...if it has anything to do with roster decisions and depth charts and system or style its mudd and washburn...juany is the ultimate figurehead

A little confused by the smaller quicker athletic offensive lineman philosophy Mudd is implementing here.

If your primarily a running team (like Tennessee was) I can understand it for the zone blocking scheme and getting to the second level of the d, but this seems counter productive to what the Eagles excel at and utilize the most in their offense-almost just asking for the oline to get bulldozed.

Post by: Eagaholic on September 02, 2011, 07:21:53 PM
I doubt the Eagles would be interested in Briggs. He wants out because he wants a new contract and Rosenhaus is pulling the same shtein with him he did 3 years ago when Briggs vowed up and down he'd never play another down for Chicago. He's already making about $3.5 million this year and obviously wants a good bit more. Can't see it with how the Eagles value LBs, Briggs is over 30, has Rosenhaus, and he is a whiner with zero right to complain. Chi has all the leverage and has no reason to let him go unless someone wants to give up a lot of draft material for him.

But let's play hypothetical for a second: The Bears offer Briggs straight up for Asante, do you do it?

I pass. I still think Asante has a few good years left and he's still a dynamic playmaker, with Nnandi on the other side he could easily eclipse 8-10 INTs. Briggs on the other hand is on the downside of his career and Rosenhaus thinks he deserves a new deal.

Having that top line nickel corner is too much of a valuable asset now a days. Not many teams around the league have it, but fortunately the Eagles do. You want to get by the Packers you better have one.

(EDIT: Just saw DeVan started at RG for the Colts in the Super Bowl (presumably the loss to the Saints)...)

DOUBLE EDIT: Seriously, if the Eagles liked Thornton enough to keep him in the first place, why would he be the first cut when they claim someone? Keeping him at all just makes other teams more interested. And if he does get back to the PS, it pretty much means he sucks.

Question - anybody know if a guaranteed roster bonus for a future year gets paid in that future year or, as guaranteed money gets paid up front to the player and only counts against the cap later, like a signing bonus? I would expect if that player were cut before the year the bonus was due it just becomes dead money for that season's cap.

eagles arent a public team like the steelers, packers or cowboys or giants are but they are a "sexy" team that, if hot, will get an insane amount of money on them

and a blowout of the rams on an otherwise difficult to predict sunday qualifies them as that

Lemme guess...it went something like this:

"He had only 1 tackle the entire game and that was when Gibson beat him down the sidelines and dove for a catch....oh and there was that other play with the PI near the endzone where he didn't need to tackle Gibson....and other than that you didn't see him the entire game!!  No sacks, no INTs.  We could've saved $10M!"

I enjoyed hearing her whine...andif she is whining now three years later then it must've been a screech when they signed him.

She said they own two rescue pits....

A buddy of mine and his woman are the same way.This is the guy who jumped to the Ravens, Orioles and Caps wagons because he moved to Maryland. He donates money to an animal shelter each time Vick gets sacked, I think. And we had a huge debate about him paying his debt to society, etc,\.

That's really the most maddening thing to me. I could give them a pass if they said "Look, we thought this kid was ready, we were really high on him. It hasn't worked out this year, so we signed XXXXX to make us better there." To them though, signing someone would be an admittance that they were totally wrong on Matthews. So they will move him around and push bullshtein that they always liked him in those spots too. Eventually Rolle or Clayton will be out there and Matthews will be on the bench.

Of all the horrible LBs this team has ever drafted, this Matthews thing is most similar to the buillshtein they did with McCoy.

For real, this FO is never going to be even half way honest with the media or fans. It's almost like they think we don't deserve it. Like they would be lowering themselves to admit anything to us or to tell us what they actually think instead of a bunch of media safe bullcrap. I can't stand to listen to Reid anymore, if you'd heard him once you've heard him a hundred times.

They move Matthews with the idea that they had it planned before hand anyway, putting Chaney in his spot, well if they thought Chaney was good enough to play there he'd have been there from the start. Same ole' pathwork bullcrap as always. Any one of the players igy mentioned would be twice as good as any player they have right now. With the money they had available it's a crime not to have addressed the linebacking situation. It makes me want to break stuff.

Correct.  Just the thought of all the defensive busts this FO has drafted makes one sick to their stomach.  Tatupu or Morrison would have been perfect.  Tatupu could be the next Kurt Gouveia who came in here later in his career under Ray Rhodes and had three great years.

With Rolle, Chaney and Fokou starting Sunday against the 49ers, this will be the 45th different linebacker combination the Eagles have used in 13 years under Reid.

And we'll probably see 45 more over the next two years.

  So the Browns are dumber than the Eagles.  Small consolation for our sad sack LBs.  Maybe Rolle will help.  He seems stout but I wonder how he will cover a RB or TE out of the backfield.  He looks short.

Curry was widely believed to be the best linebacker available in the 2009 NFL Draft.[8] Considered a "safe pick", he was even in the debate for the No. 1 pick overall.[9] ESPN′s Mel Kiper, Jr. compared Curry to Keith Bulluck.[10]
Curry was drafted fourth overall by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2009 NFL Draft. He was the highest drafted linebacker since LaVar Arrington went second overall in the 2000 NFL Draft to the Washington taterskins, and the highest Wake Forest Demon Deacon since Norm Snead went second overall to the Washington taterskins in the 1961 NFL Draft.[11]

shtein did he fall fast.  From fourth overall pick to trade bait in two years.

Don't know where else to throw this but Asante Samuel should be benched in favor of DRC. It's bad enough he can't tackle for shtein, but his I don't give a farg attitude is so obvious by his play on the field this season that's it's a slap in the face. At least before he was getting turnovers but now he's a total liability. At least DRC hustles and acts like he gives a shtein. If there's any market for him get rid of him now to a contender.

How does anyone expect a player to react to that question after a loss? They're pissed to start with and the media expects them to stand before them and bear thier soul. So when they get even more pissed they take heat for answering a question the same way any of us would have answered it. I actually thought he handled is well considering the circumstances.

It's funny that when I read the AP or live wire reports I'm seeing a lot of teams working out LB's, and I just cant believe the Eagles would not bring anyone in for a workout.

Granted these guys are coming off injury and have been cut for various reasons, but you would think that even if their intent is to never sign any of them at least light the fire under someones ass that your position is not safe. These guys are skipping around the locker room talking about buying a summer house in avalon their job is so secure.

Vicks gonna' be lucky to make it to halftime. I can't help it, I watch the games just waiting for his next injury. You know what any defense is thinking. They're thinking HURT Mike Vick. HURT him and we win. Like wolves to raw meat. When they get any chance at him at all they're trying to take his head off. He's, and I've been saying this since Kolb got knocked out, the only qb in the league that can survive behind this line.

Well....maybe Cam Newton now. But I wouldn't bet on it.

In an average draft you should be able to net 3 players who can contribute. They don't have to be pro bowlers but they should be good enough to fill a need. So far his list includes Nate Allen and to a way lesser extent Jamar Chaney. The rest of his draft picks are horrendus. The 2011 draft class was really, really, bad.

The problem starts and ends with the system, instead of picking players who have talent they pick guys who fit their 'system'. Add into it the fact that Howie doesn't know shtein about football and it's a recipe for disaster.

Yep...they go system over true BPA.

They go BPA for their system. They're all about the "fastball" DEs and CBs. Safety and LB are afterthoughts.

And they blatantly ignore the fact that their prized DL coach hire employs a system that requires those gaping holes to be plugged by LBs who can stick their face in there and hit someone. Not only did they ignore LB in the draft but they didn't touch it in FA either.

Kirk Morrison, Nick Barnett, Barrett Ruud and Stephen Tulloch....don't need ya! Casey Matthews and Moise Fokou are just fine!

Or because he's being hit while throwing the ball. The O-line is a sieve and he's running for his life every other play.

Probably.  I've already chalked this season up as a loss.  They probably need to go 9-2 to win the division and get into the playoffs.  Wild card ain't coming out of the east this year.   South and North have that taken care of.  And even if Dawk plays like it's 2001 and causes some sort of revival among the team and the Eagles get in, it won't mean shtein when Reid gets out coached again in the first round.  Great coaches can compensate for average talent but it's not very often when great talent can compensate for average coaching.  95 Cowboys might be the exception to that rule. 

So since the season is lost, might as well have our last hoorah with Dawk.

Heard about this one too.  Basically, Kelce walked up to them and asked them to take down the sign and the sign holder(s) did.  Later he basically said that people are entitled to their opinion, blah blah blah and asks that they keep those opinions in the media, blogs, etc, etc and not put them up near the practice facility.

Yeah, so I get what he's asking.  He wants to go to work and not be heckled or have his teammates/coaches heckled.  He's also an idiot for asking it, no matter how politely he may have done so.  Then again, he probably just got himself a 10 year contract so maybe he's not an idiot after all.  Either way, he's still not a very good football player.

There was no politeness about it Rome.

Mathis said if he didn't take the sign down that sign mans 20 yr old son would have to deal with him. They arguing quite a bit.

Kelce and Mathis figured if this could somehow get on WIP Andy would hear about it, get all gushy because someone really does think he's a great coach and they wouldn't get cut.



Not sure where you got that from.

Quote
Mathis and Kelce approached the fane and asked them to remove the banner. The players have said that they did not threaten the fans; they merely asked them to take the sign down, and the fans complied.


Quote
"I support our fans," Kelce told Philly.com's Jonathan Tamari. "I support everyone that roots for us, everyone that comes to the games. That's the wrong message that's being displayed right now. I support freedom of speech," said Kelce. "If you want to go out to talk bad stuff about the coaches or things like that do it on a blog, do it wherever you want, but don't bring it to our front door right now when we're 1-4 trying to get better we don't need that kind of division on the team right now."

Having a much better understanding of the story now, specifically that it was Sign Man, I would not be the least bit surprised if word didn't trickle down from Banner's office and Kecle and Watkins were told to "take care of it."  How else could you explain the fact that 2 rookies were able to walk however far it was they had to go and none of the coaches or anyone did anything about it.  Am I supposed to believe that rookies are allowed to wonder around aimlessly?

The whole story just smells like Hoyda. Why would they care about some dick w/ a sign. Are they really that fragile of an organization? I guess yes, the softness just trickles on down from Owner, FO to Colt Anderson. farg this whole team.

Avant simply could not judge Vick. "Three years ago, anybody you'd talk to would crucify him," Avant said. "He's changing. He's not there yet, but he recognizes that he made a mistake.

New-school Eagles resisting Mudd’s old-school style
Posted by Mike Florio on October 15, 2011, 1:46 PM EDT

When dissecting the offseason decisions made by Eagles coach Andy Reid, most of the attention focuses on Reid’s choice to move Juan Castillo from offensive line coach to defensive coordinator.  Apart from the challenges Castillo would face in changing to the other side of the ball (especially during a season in which a looming lockout threatened to — and ultimately did — reduce the window for preparation), the move forced Reid to hire a new offensive line coach.

Reid hired Howard Mudd, who most recently coached the offensive line in Indianapolis from 1998 through 2009.  Though Mudd has a great reputation and years of experience and accomplishments, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us that some of the players on offense aren’t embracing Mudd’s methods.

As the source explained it, it’s a classic old-school/new-school generation gap.  The players on the Philadelphia offensive line, along with the rest of the offense, are predominantly young.  Mudd, 69, has been involved in the NFL since before all of them were born.  Then there’s the fact that the unit is struggling, which serves only to create and/or increase tensions between the position coach, the offensive linemen, and the other players on offense.

Complicating matters is that Mudd and the players have had limited time to get acquainted, due to the lockout.  They’ll been together for roughly 2.5 months, and the team’s struggles surely have made it hard for everyone to come together they way they should.

Our advice to the Eagles players?  Buy quickly what Mudd is selling.  The guy knows what he’s doing, and if it’s not getting done, it’s not because his techniques and strategies don’t work.

They traded 2 1st round picks for him. Then the next year they traded back with a team almost the exact same draft slots they traded to move up for him, except they only took a 3rd. The press asked Kotite why he would do that when he traded a 1st to move up the previous season and he said it was because the draft was only half the rounds it was the previous year (from 12 to 8). You can't make this crap up.

At the end of one of the seasons they had Lester Holmes at RG and Davis at RT and it looked like Davis was turning a corner, then they moved him to Guard and he blew. I'll never forget the Monday night game when Charles Mann took him to school.

better trade him at this point because he if he doesnt get moved his effort in the second half of the season will be approximately 10%

to me they are moving him to get rid of his contract and i wouldnt be surpised if they get a pick for him

Did you know Asante Samuel is a business entity? Third person reference!

Asante Samuel says the Eagles don’t want him
Posted by Mike Florio on October 22, 2011, 12:53 PM EDT
Eagles' Samuel knocks the ball away from taterskins' Moss in the end zone during their NFL football game in Landover Reuters

The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles seem to make news every week, so why not make some news on their bye week, too?

Cornerback Asante Samuel joined Tim McManus and Pat Callahan of 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly earlier today.  And Samuel made it clear that he’s not happy with the team’s reported willingness to trade him.

“Definitely, it doesn’t sit well with me,” Samuel said.  “Definitely, I’ve been nothing but what they expected me to be when they brought me there. . . .  Definitely, it doesn’t sit well with me.  And obviously they don’t want me there, so life goes on.  So we’ll see where I’ll be at.”

Samuel says that knowing the team doesn’t want him won’t affect his play.

“Well, as long as I’m getting paid I’m gonna do my job,” Samuel said.  “So whoever [is] cutting the check, I do my job. . . . So I’m not worried about that.  I just know in the back of my head they don’t want me there.  So, you know, that’s not gonna leave.  They put it out there so everybody could know that, so I know that and everybody knows that.  So it’s in the back of my head.  And Asante Samuel is a business entity first, so I’m going to make sure I handle my business accordingly.”

Samuel was the subject of trade rumors after the Eagles acquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnadmi Asomugha in the days after the lockout ended.  Last week, those rumors resurfaced before the annual trading deadline.

Samuel joined the Eagles on the first day of free agency in 2008, only weeks after dropping what would have been a perfect-season-clinching interception for the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.  Signed through 2013, Samuel’s salary spikes from $5.9 million this year to $8.4 million next season.  He’s due to earn $10.4 million in base salary in the final year of the deal.

Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: Munson on October 22, 2011, 08:09:38 PM
I meant to bring that up the other day and forgot. And further, is there anyone left who thinks DeSean is better then Maclin? Maclin is the complete WR, capable of the big play but also can do the GRITty shtein. Reminds me a lot of Reggie Wayne in that aspect.
Title: Re: Random Eagles Information Still Not Worthy of a New Thread
Post by: BobbyT on October 22, 2011, 09:19:02 PM
Avant has stepped up and if Steve Smith gets rid of the concrete hands then DeSean could be gone. Should be about 10 mil floating around once Asante hits the road in the offseason

Maclin is easily the more polished and versatile receiver who will likely have a longer, more productive career.  But defensive coordinators don't lose sleep over game planning for him. 

He's Cris Carter to Pimp's Moss. 

Given a choice between the 2, I'd prefer Maclin over the long term.

No, I compared him to Cris Carter.  And in terms of versatility as opposed to their explosive, but somewhat limited counterparts, it's a fair comparison. 

In terms of actual game, no.  Carter has an entire HOF career to be judged by, Maclin has like 3 years.  So there is no comparison.

I think it's awesome that neither of you have said squat about him getting paid all season but now when the subject is brought up you pull the usual nonsense. The reason you haven't said squat is because at no point this season have you said to yourself "we have to keep this guy". He's been pretty average by Desean standards. I hope the guy gets a new deal, I'd still be fine with him getting similar to the 5 year $50 million deal Holmes got. I guess I just miss the fake outrage about him having to play for only
