Will Sam Bradford Be Another Drew Brees?

Sam BradfordEagles head coach Chip Kelly made it clear that he’s gambling that former number one pick in the draft, Sam Bradford will be able to stay healthy going forward, just like Drew Brees did for the New Orleans Saints.  He knows that were it not for Bradford’s recent injuries, there’s no way in the world he would have been available.

“I’m concerned about anybody’s injuries”, Kelly said, “but you’re not going to get involved with anybody if not for his injuries. There aren’t too many people in this league who aren’t injured at this position.”

“The Saints, their revival had a lot to do with Drew Brees, who was hurt (shoulder injury). A lot of teams didn’t do enough due diligence with him. Give (Saints coach) Sean Payton and (general manager) Mickey Loomis credit. They didn’t count Drew Brees out and look how it paid off for them.

“We wouldn’t have traded for him if we didn’t believe he didn’t have a tremendous upside.”

The Saints were able to steal Brees from the San Diego Chargers because of an arm injury he had suffered.  Brees recovered and the rest is history.

The Eagles think they have done their due diligence with Bradford.  Kelly envisions the former Oklahoma Sooner being able to stay healthy and playing like everybody thought he would when he was selected with the first pick in the draft in 2010.

“He’s 6-4, he’s smart, he’s intelligent, he’s one of the most accurate throwers when you see him throw the football,” the Eagles head coach explained.

“I think he’s wired right. We had some inside information because (Eagles offensive coordinator) Pat Shurmur had an opportunity to coach him for a year (with the Rams), and he understands how he’s wired.”

“He’s an unbelievable competitor. I talked to Kevin Wilson, now head coach Indiana, who was his offensive coordinator (at Oklahoma). I talked to (Oklahoma head coach) Bob Stoops, and they both said the kid’s wired right.”

As for interest in Marcus Mariota, Kelly says he knew that wasn’t going to happen.

“Marcus is the best quarterback in the draft,” Kelly said. “But we will never mortgage our future to go all the way to get someone like that.”

Obviously, Kelly didn’t feel Nick Foles was in Bradford’s category as a quarterback and he never thought, he could win a championship with him.  Even if he hadn’t followed through with the Bradford trade, he was going to trade Foles elsewhere.

Kelly is gambling with Bradford and if he is right, he has himself a franchise quarterback.  If he turns out to be wrong, he got rid of a quarterback he didn’t think he would win with anyway.

G, lets not forget this, people can make fun all they want about Chip n his sports science n medical staff of mad scientists but Guess what? Maclin n Kelce both had ACL injuries with Kelce also having a sports hernia n they both came back better than ever, pro bowl better for Maclin with Kelce going back, I have faith n believe we’re gonna be good.

There is little doubt that Foles on his own would have returned a 2nd Round Pick
If he was Packaged with that 20th PIck, Kelly could have moved
down to Jets or even Titans in the early 1st Round with other Picks involved…
Chip Kelly, in the end, was not “all-in” for Mariota as most of you thought or wanted…

I don’t think he hated nick but as big as of a fan I am of foles he made some bonehead mistakes that made you say wtf foles. This all comes down to skill set for the system and Bradford has it. Look at his highlights on youtube especially the video of all his throws over 15 yards. Look at the accuracy and ball placement and tell me this dude doesn’t have tons of potential

Foles stinks and this is a good gamble! Chip went after the best available QB based on talent…there is no way he could guarantee that he could move high enough in the draft to get Mariota…so he improved the defense signed Sanchez who is just as good as Foles (they both stink) . So when you sum it all up we are at status quo at QB with a chance to be a lot better if Bradford is healthy, we are better on defense, even at running back and we still have room with the draft to get better at the Oline and wide receiver…and draft a QB to develop for the future!
Fuck what chip says in press conferences or his attitude….he has made moves that has improved the team
I’m not totally sold on Chip…but his moves in Free agency are good ones..

I’m tired of being saying “he will flourish in this system.”

All QBs will flourish in this system. The thing is the system can mask their problems against bad to mediocre teams. Against good teams, not so much.

You still need a GOOD not great but GOOD QB – Bradford, when healthy is “meh” – he’s underwhelming. Factor in he can’t stay on the field – and it’s all….

All I can hope for now is the skills positions get better and the defense is better. Cause QB – we don’t really have (that much) of an upgrade when all things are factored in.

They don’t need to draft a WR high. Huff and Matthews are fine, they used 2 of their top picks last year for a reason. Any one of us could succeed at WR in this offense. They need Olineman and DBs most importantly and if they can get a stud 3-4 Dlineman or a solid QB of the future in third, go for it.

March 11, 2015 8:05 pm

At first I loved hearing this Andrew. Then I read this:

Bucs will release S Dashon Goldson.
They’ve found a replacement in Chris Conte. The move saves $4 million, but also leaves behind $4 million in dead money. Signed to a five-year, $41.25 million contract in March 2013, Goldson was an abject failure both of his seasons in Tampa, performing as one of the league’s worst safeties. That, coupled with his advancing age (31 in September), made him a no-brainer release for a team that’s performed comically poorly in free agency in recent years. Despite his rough play the past two seasons, there should be no shortage of teams willing to take a flier on a player who was a first-team All-Pro in 2012.

Now I’m certain we get this guy.

This is the same coach who drafted Matt Barlkley and brought in Mark Sanchez. How did those two stud quarterbacks work out for the Eagles? Sanchez 4-4 and Barkley can’t get on the field, that makes Chip 0-2 on quarterbacks that he brought in. What makes us think his opinion of Bradford will be any better. This has nothing to do with Foles, I agree that this is not the best system for him. I just can’t see where all the “in Chip we trust” comes from, he’s done nothing to earn that trust yet. So far, he’s really no better or no worse than any other first time coach that was hired when he was. Spurrier 2.0 that’s how I see Chip working out.

$14 million into RBs?? Well….they would have had $15 mill in if Shady had been here…

So…

$15 mil for Shady and Sproles….

or

$15 mil for Murray, Matthews, Sproles and Alonzo

If they Sign Murray, then the Smart Move is to Trade Sproles since he has some Value as opposed to Polk who has none..
Sproles could return a 5th Round/6th Round Pick
Matthews should be able to handle Sprole’s Roles in the Offense as a 3rd Down/Scat Back
Huff then becomes the Punt Returner…

And I’m tired of the we shouldve kept shady

Shady is a east west runner, CHIP WANTS A NORTH SOUTH RUNNER

He wants a RB that will run guys over, a RB that hits the hole fast, not a dancer

Expect the Eagles to do all they can to sign Murray

Yeah..We all but have him now??? Demarco is wanted because he runs north and south..same as matthews..Chip wants guys that will take the 3 or 4 yard gain. Man all we seem to need now in the draft is WR OL S…Then just get best available. And a Qb project. Plus with Matthews there and sproles..he wont get overused. Get rid of barkely!!!

Shit Rhino why’d you bring his name up? Barkley can join Locker and Worilds and just quietly retire.

No SS, no 2nd CB (Thurmond is a slot CB, not a outside starter), no starting #1 WR, no RG, 2 wasted, busts at QB, absolutely no depth, so let’s bring in another RB, & waste money on him!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! You just can’t make this shit up?

I’m hearing that a deal is in place already between Murray and Eagles. That’s why hes coming here today

Supposedly an announcement will be made today (Thursday) after he arrives here in Philly

I can say I told you all so

Im confused again. Ive been told that the RB crop is very deep this year and that RB is the easiest position to fill. We have Sproles, Polk and Matthews plus a deep draft. Why in the hell would we now try to add Murray? We have no WR so wouldn’t it have been more logical to draft a RB and then just give Maclin the 2 million extra because we have no WR? Murray definelty is going to cost more than 2million a year we could of used Murrays money to sign Maclin. So we are going to have Matthews, Sproles and Polk standing on the sidelines while Murray is in the game with a pathetic set of WR? I don’t get it.

Or better yet you should of signed Murray and used the money you wasted on Matthews and resigned Maclin.

dag, I’m with you. I’d much rather have Murrary over Mathews and use Mathews’ money to resign Maclin. The draft is too deep at RB and if we’re going to go RBBC, I’d rather have a young, fresh set of legs to go with what we have.

I actually do not think they are going to sign him. I think this is a ploy to drive up the asking price with the Cowboys.

Letting Mac go for what amounts to peanuts was stupid. You overpay in free agency – that’s life.

But once again Kelly doesn’t value WR and RB like that. I’m curious to see what this Murray contract is gonna look like.

That will say a lot.

Hahaha, Bowe is a joke. He’s probably on the same level as Riley Cooper.

D Bowe Doesn’t play his Size, He’s a Poor Blocker and just not a Chip Kelly Guy and not a goof Fit in this Offense

I rather take a flyer on Kenny Britt, heck even Reggie Wayne over Bowe

**NFL Signings

Bears Sign WR Eddie Royal of the Chargers
Bears Sign Safety Antrel Rolle of the Giants (3 Years – $11 Million)
Titans Sign Safety Da’Norris Searcy of the Bills
Colts Re-Sign Safety Mike Adams

Rhaim Moore, Louis Delmas, Thomas DeCoud & Tashaun Gipsson are all still out there in a pretty weak Safety Group of Free-Agents

I can now see the Eagles possibly Re-Signing Nate Allen, but they are going to need to do it soon for Allen is probably getting many Offers..
