The Eagles Should Not Pursue Amari Cooper!!!

I don’t want to see the Eagles go after the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper.  Yes, he’s got tremendous talent.  He’s got average size at 6’1″ 203 pounds, good speed 4.42 and he runs just about the whole route tree.   Most of the time, he’s able to get open, but a Amari Cooper has got no heart.  He’s not a fighter.  He doesn’t have that “Dog in Him”.

He doesn’t play with passion especially when things get competitive.   Last year against the New England Patriots when he was being covered by Stephon Gilmore, who was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, he not only did not catch any passes in a game where they needed him desperately.  Gilmore ate him up in front of the nation and Cooper didn’t compete.  He didn’t fight Gilmore and Philadelphia fans would not put up with that.  Not only did Gilmore hold him to zero catches, but Gilmore picked off a pass.  The cornerback who was covering Cooper caught more passes than he did in a matchup, which the entire league was waiting to see.

I could have been able to deal with him being outplayed, but I can’t deal with the fact that he didn’t compete.  HE DIDN’T FIGHT!!!   If you want to be a championship team, you must have fighters on your ball club.  You must have leaders who want to compete and who are willing to compete, when the season is on the line.  Cooper didn’t compete with the Cowboys season on the line.

If he were to come to the Eagles he would get a huge contract and that will make him a team leader.   He would be a leader on the team regardless of whether Doug Pederson and his staff wanted him to be a leader or not because the guys that are making the most money on the team are considered leaders. Cooper would be a leader on the Eagles, but he does not have that “Dog in Him”.   He’s soft.  His leadership would hurt the entire team.  I would rather see the Birds look elsewhere.

Cooper is the type of guy, who flourishes when things are going well. He doesn’t shine when the team is in a challenging situation and somebody needs to step up.  He had the same problem in Oakland with the Raiders.  The guy has all the talent in the world, but he doesn’t have that “Dog in Him”!!!  The wide out will get eaten up here in Philly, if the Birds were to acquire him.

We’ve seen it before.  Look at what’s going on with the Sixers.   They have guys, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, who are very talented, but if they don’t have that “Dog in Them”, they don’t win championships and they don’t take the team to the championship level.   It’s not good to have guys on your team who are your best players, but they don’t have that “Dog in Them”.  Amari Cooper is clearly one of those guys.

Look at the Cowboys last year.  They had some of the best talent in the league, but their biggest problem is guys like Cooper, who didn’t compete when the game or their season was on the line.  Do you remember the Eagles-Cowboys game for the playoffs?  It was the end of the game with the season on the line, Amari takes himself out of the game.  Yes, you had the final play with the Cowboys at the Eagles twenty-five or thirty yard line with the time running out, Cooper is standing on the sidelines.  We don’t need to bring a guy like that into Philadelphia because he will get eaten alive because he doesn’t have that “Dog in Him”.

When the season was on the line he would not compete against the best players in the league.   You need your best receiver to take over and dominate.  I don’t want to see the Eagles go after Cooper because it was set at a mindset on this team of guys not competing and not being fighters.

The fact that the Eagles won a Super Bowl a few years ago means, the Birds fans are not going to be content with anything but winning titles.  They’ve got to win championships.  The fans are not going to be happy with anything less. Amari Cooper may be able to help the Eagles put up numbers, but he won’t help them win championships. The guy is not a fighter.  He is a nice guy but he’s not a fighter.   It’s that simple!!!

I will take a close look at the other NFL wide receivers, who are available for signing and identify some better prospects for the Birds.

Stay Away from the Underachieving Amari Cooper and the Big $$ he will get on the Open Market.

The WR Position for the Eagles is certainly in transition as they have to decide on whether to bring
back Veterans Alshon Jeffrey and D-Jax for 2020 who are both Under Contract but not a certainty to return..
They will move on from Nelson Agholor and will not offer him a Contract as he leaves in Free-Agency

I would Prefer the Eagles look at the following Younger WR’s in Free-Agency who could develop into solid NFL WR’s without spending Big $$ for them as they should add at least 1-2 Experienced WR’s in Free-Agency and then Draft 1-2 WR’s in the Draft

WR Robbie Anderson from the NY Jets – 6-3″ 190lbs , Legitimate Deep Speed, 27 Years Old, Local Temple kid.
WR Rashard Higgins from the Browns – 6-1″ 200lbs – 25 Years Old (had a Solid 2018 Season but regressed last Season and missed some Games and the odd man out playing behind Odell Beckham/Jarvis Landry in Cleveland
WR Tajae Sharpe from the Titans – 6-2″ 200lbs – 25 Years Old , Not many Opportunities in the run heavy Titan Offense and also playing as 3rd WR behind Corey Davis and AJ Brown so a change of scenery may be good

A Couple of Veterans out there who could maybe help for the short term if the Eagles move on from big target Alshon Jeffrey

WR AJ Green – from the Bengals – missed all of last Season due to Injury but will still likely command big $$$
WR Devon Funchess from the Colts – (6-4 235lbs) He only Played 1 Game last year before injuring Collarbone and was placed on season ending IR.. Should be available for a 1 Year Prove It Deal at a reasonable Salary
and does provide a big Target and is a Physical WR who can help in the Run game, 3rd Downs and the Red-Zone

Draft Wise this is a very Deep and Talented WR Class in 2020 with Big Receivers, Small Fast Receivers and many in-between which I would like to see the Eagles Draft 2 WR’s within the first 4 Rounds
Could the Eagles in the 1st Round with the #21st Pick, be looking at Tee Higgins of Clemson or Laviska Shenault of Colorado and then maybe Select a WR again in the 3rd Round with Receivers like Tyler Johnson of Minnesota, Denzel Mims of Baylor, Michael Pittman of USC, Bryan Edwards of South Carolina, Gabriel Davis of UCF or Collin Johnson of Texas or Lynn Bowden of Kentucky, Chase Claypool of Notre Dame etc,etc be possibly available in that 3rd Round (Pick #85 or the Compensatory Pick they will get for losing QB Nick Foles in Free Agency last Off-Season which will likely come at the end of the 3rd Round (Around #100 Selection or so)

2020 Draft Class is Deepest at WR, OL, Edge/OLB’s & Developmental QB Positions but not so Deep at DL,CB & Safety, RB Positions as in Past Drafts in my Opinion, so always Draft from the Strength of the Draft Class

Nice reasoning Paul… What’s up man?!

I would also veto pursuing Amari Cooper…I’d rather they used that type of money to improve the pass rush ; I want them to bring in both Jadaveon Clowney, and Yannick Ngakoue. You know how I feel about Brandon Graham – totally overrated – Good football player, but nothing special, and our pass rush suffered from that, as well as not having aggressive, athletic Linebackers…Howie had got to move on from the special teams Linebackers, being sufficient on a Championship team…..just stupid

At WR…..Robbie Anderson, is my Free Agent Target, to team with DeSean Jackson….I know how much you hate DJack…..my other FA Targets:

De’vondre Campbell ILB
James Bradberry CB
Justin Simmons S (if possible)

but I’m drafting 3 WR’s …I would like to see Howie trade up to trade down for even more picks in the 2nd,3rd, and 4th Rounds Perhaps with the Jets at 11 Malcolm Jenkins, Alshon, Arcega Whiteside 3 #1’s – 2021, 2022, 2024, a conditional 2nd in 2023, 4th, and 6th in 2022, and 2023…..if possible without giving up the 21st pick….for the #11 pick, and Jamal Adams

I would like to get Jerry Jeudy or Henry Ruggs,- my preference would be Jeudy Jalen Reagor, and Gabriel Davis at that position – all 3 of them.

We’ve got to get some Linebackers in this draft…maybe use that 21st pick to draft Kenny Murray, as an OLB, Anfernee Jennings, as a study under Campbell as an OLB in the 3rd, and I like Willie Gay Jr in the 4th, and Cam Brown in the 5th

I like Cameron Dantzler, Jeff Gladney, Bryce Hall, and Reggie Robinson as my CB draft targets – would like to have all 4, but would take 3 of the 4.

Safety – Kyle Digger, and Jeremy Chinn of Southern Illinois

TE – Adam Troutman
RB – Darius Anderson, and Patrick Taylor Jr
QB – Jake Luton, Oregon State, and Brandon Davidson, Princeton
DE – Khalil Kareem, Notre Dame, and Nasir Player

I’m also all for trading for Darius Slay, or Patrick Peterson

I do think we need Offensive Line Depth, but I’m more confident in the Eagles bringing in competent UDFA’s than outright drafting.

And Goode, and Breman were nothing more than special teams players…..Kendricks was the fastest of the 4, and he was coming off a torn ACL from the previous year……they need more aggressive and, athletic Linebackers than they’ve had in the past…….Kenneth Murray, Jordan Brooks, Anfernee Jennings, Willie Gay Jr, Cam Brown, etc….. You’re content with the BS Howie’s brought in the past…..Free Agents – Cory Littleton, and De’vondre Campbell, should be the fast, aggressive and athletic Linebackers we should be targeting…….But I’m sure your smart ass has better players in mind because I’m so uneducated……laughable jack ass…..

And we should be able to go into the season with TJ Edwards, Nate Gerry, and Duke Riley as starters!!???…..Do us all a favor and shut up….it’s clear that you’re the dumbass…….

Who cares they were fortunate enough to get by with what they had…. How’d that work out the last 3 years afterwards???….. Exactly!!… exactly my point…..I mentioned Kenneth Murray, Willie Gay Jr, and Anfernee Jennings….I already know this is a pipedream, but Isaiah Simmons would look great in Midnight Green .

Lol…..My degrees are as legitimate as the Eagles Super Bowl win……..the haters never ceases to amuse me….in your uneducated evaluation of my statement, you neglected to emphasize the word…. Perhaps…..

The point was to move up the board to trade down for more picks…

Btw, the Jets are #11 in terms of salary cap space genius; they have plenty of space. Jamal Adams has stated that he doesn’t want to be with the team, and they would have traded him but no one was giving them 2 #1’s..

The Eagles could create a deal with the Giants, Browns, etc. . Perhaps….if they would be open to it…

And that Linebacking core that you proudly reped was average at best in 2017, and we were a little lucky to win in spite of that.

My opinion, as usual is I could care less about your criticism. My question is what would be your plan…… lol ☺️…..I can’t wait to hear how smart you are….

so give up 3 players, 3 number 1’s, a 2, a 4 and 6 for 11 and a player who will be a FA in a year or two??
Stick to intramural flag football at the parks and rec you manage. == the jets don’t want those players even a little bit– they will gladly take the pics for 11 and adams– hilarious.

Hey GMCliff, Hope all is Well with You and it’s good hearing from You
Eagles need to Draft 2 WR’s from this Talented WR Draft Class
in the First 3 Rounds
1 has to be a definite Speed and Big Play Receiver (Riggs, Lambe or the WR’s from TCU and Arizona State) and the other one an accomplished Route Runner who can run the Route Tree already
(Tyler Johnson of Minnesota or Mims of Baylor)

The Eagles also need to rebuild both the Secondary and LB Corps
I stay away from Patrick Petersen and Darius Slay for it would cost too much Draft Capitol and this is the first Draft since Wentz that the Eagles actually have some zdraft Capitol and I’d rather see the Eagles add youth and athleticism to their Roster than trade away assets now or for the Future for stop gap Players whose best years are probably behind them
Do note with 3 New Coaching Staffs in the NFC East with totally new systems to implement should give the Eagles a nice Edge for the 2020 Season as far as competing and winning the NFC East in 2020
They do need to Add a proven Pass Rusher and LB in Free Agency and maybe a Safety if Thry can’t work anything out with Malcom Jenkins
I would have Avonte Maddox Replace the role of McLeod and maybe look at a Tre Boston in Free Agency to Replace Jenkins if he wants out

Yes and Valid Point and this is True across the Board, as it is across all NFL Teams and we will have a clearer picture after Free-Agency to see where the most Depth is going to be needed which is the WR,RB,DT,LB & Secondary Oositions as of Today and also Backup QB ..
Eagles probably have the most Depth across their OL right now but if Peters is not resigned and Big V signs elsewhere for a chance to Start then they will need to add some OL also.. especially with Brooks/LJ coming off Injuries and Center Kelce another year older.. so a swing OT and Future Center could be added for sure

Background Checks for all these young Athletes is very important too which is where much of the Homework has to be done and most of these Athletes will look good during the Combine…
But many Players can show off their athleticism,explosion,natural instincts and attention to detail at the Combine which is a great start for them as they start to begin the Process for their Professional Careers

I still believe the Eagles will Draft for “need” more often than the “BPA” and especially with their first 2-3 Picks . it’s not like the Eagles will Draft a TE or OT or QB or RB at #21
With their First Pick even if that Player is rated at the Top on the Draft Board when they are on the Clock

I believe they will go DB or WR or possibly a DE/DT depending whose available when are on the Clock at #21 and #53

Hey Paul,

The Eagles always do what the Eagles are going to do, and that cannot be predicted accurately.

Regardless, I’m just going to emphasize my personal vision to improve the Eagles.

There are a lot of so called experienced evaluators, that do nothing but recycle the same old vision of championship team building – with the same old results- They’re no better than you, or I.

As I mentioned I would like to see them trade up to trade down for more picks, and trade garbage like Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas, JJ Arcega Whiteside, and serviceable players like Malcolm Jenkins, Alshon Jeffrey.

you just admitted all positions are a position of need. they won’t draft a qb at 21 that is true and that is because it is not a NEED– RB they just don’t value it that much– I was surprised they used a 2 on one– so if by “need’ you mean positions they value-which I would agree is part of the evaluation. outside of that– they value CB, OL, WR I guess–whatever they need to get it right no matter what position– remember they are all positions of need

I would go all in for DE Yannick Ngakoue and would pass on J Clowney and Ziggy Ansah who can’t seem to stay healthy.. I would also Pursue a Robert Quinn and Markus Golden on a short-term Deal,
At DT – I like Michael Brockers and Jaran Reed
At LB – I like Littleton but he will get a huge Payday and will be too expensive for the Eagles, I kinda of like Joe Shoebert who only makes tackles it seems each and every Season and De’Vondrene Campbell too
At CB – I stay away from Bradbury who plays too soft in my opinion and prefer a more physical Defender like Bashaud Breeland, Kendall Fuller
At Safety – Jimmie Ward and or Tre Boston
At WR Position – I would use this Draft to Select 2 Promising Young WR’s within their first 4 Draft Selections and Coach them up and have hem grow with Wentz and maybe pick-up speedster Robbie Anderson only if the Eagles are going to move on from D-Jax, as there no sense in having both Robbie Anderson and D-Jax on your Roster and then Drafting a Young Speedster (Ruggs/Aiyuck) only to wait in the wings..

In Terms of Trades – Brandon Graham has little to no Trade Value at this stage of his Career, Disappointing Young Players like S Jones, JJAC and R Douglas are not going to bring much either in terms of Value or real Draft Capitol , WR A Jeffrey Salary and Cap Hit and Current Injury Status where he may not even be available to Practice/Play until September make it very unlikely to Trade for anything

The 3-4 Players who do have strong Trade Value would be Players like OT Lane Johnson, Safety M Jenkins and TE Z Ertz but doubtful outside of Malcolm Jenkins that the Eagles would part ways…

Naaah,, I’ve always felt Robert Quinn was overrated, and Brockers brings nothing as far as I’m concerned. But that’s how we roll sometimes buddy – We’ll agree to disagree…

Drafting well is the key to getting younger, and staying competitive by bringing in younger acsending players in the Secondary, Linebacking, and DE positions like Ngakoue, Clowney, Littleton, Campbell, Bradberry – who I also feel is much better than the penalty machines you preferred, – and Jamal Adams who I would try to bring in the fold, to upgrade Malcolm – He’s too old to make more than he does at his position. He, and Rodney McCleod, made too many mistakes last year in coverage. That doesn’t deserve a raise, it deserves to be upgraded.

What has D-Jax done in the last 4-5 Seasons, I just don’t live in the past and expect very little production if any from him moving forward.. If fans want to cling onto him, fine, but look at what hes done since 2015 (180 Receptions and 17 TD’s ) which averages to about 40 Receptions a Year and less than 4 TD’s a Year… That’s just not Playmaker type of Production

Remember they just signed a former high draft pick if the Chargers. His name escapes me, but he’ll probably be more in the conversation than Craig James.

Yes, Sign CB Craig James on a cheap Deal for Depth/Special Teams Purposes, He’s not a Starter by any Stretch but you would like to have some Players in your Secondary familiar with your Team and System although the do have a new Secondary Coach who has a nice track record of developing Young DB’s

I haven’t heard or read anything on Dillard, Hope he’s ok, but He needs to be on the Field and Play in 2020
Peters needs to Retire, maybe he can be an Asst OL Coach if he still wants to be around the Game ..

I agree with you about Peters absolutely, but Craig James, I seriously doubt it, because if you get 2 new starters, for sake of argument Bradberry, and Slay,….and you draft 2 New CB’s, and you still have Avonte Maddox, and Crevon Le’Blanc, the only thing he’ll be signed to is the practice squad….

even if they play Maddox at Safety, they still have Rudy Ford, and another speedy player, whose name I can’t remember. Point is, Craig James is pretty much has no chance to make the 53 man roster Paul buddy.

I don’t think the Eagles are going to Sign both CB J Bradberry who is average at best and overrated to a long-term big deal which is what he’s wanting and also Trade and give up Future Draft Pick Assets for Darius Slay who also is up for a NEw Contract … I just don’t see the Eagles going down this path
They will sign 1 Free-Agent CB (Breeland I hope) and then they will Draft 1-2 CB’s (CJ Henderson hopefully) and then have LeBlanc to play the Slot CB and then have Sydney Jones,R Douglas and James and whoever else they Draft battle it out for Depth from there ..

Darius Slay would cost the Eagles a 4th round pick, and yes pay him afterwards…They would have been willing to do it anyway as they were looking to trade for him last year….. . knowing that they were going to have to pay him.

I think Breeland is a penalty waiting to happen. I flat out would say no to him.

The Eagles have been horrible in drafting Cornerbacks in recent years. I wouldn’t trust putting a rookie in that position to start.

I would draft Jeff Gladney, Cameron Dantzler, Reggie Robinson, and let them grow behind Bradberry and Slay, and have them step into a starting role forsakebif injury, or until they’ve proven they’re ready…

I would rather realecate money to use to upgrade some positions like DE…I don’t think Brandon Graham is worth the money he gets- and never had been. Forget his trade value – his salary is what I want to use to our advantage to sign a better player like Jadaveon Clowney… Also they were going to go after Yannick Ngakoue anyway those are better bookend Defensive Ends with Barnett, and Gerard Avery coming off the bench is 50 times better than what we have now..

Not signing Malcom, and allocating the money he wants to a younger, ascending player would just be the smarter plan…..

Yes and his Trade Value will never be higher plus clears big Cap Space to address other more needed Positions .. No Team Pays their RT what the Eagles are have been paying for LJ over his Career.. If Eagles Bring back Peters, what do they do with Dillard ? Slide Peters inside to LG, Move Suemalo who can Play RT, or Re-sigh Big V who can then Play RT, or Jordon Malatai that everyone has been high on for 2-3 Years .. Lots of Options

Maybe the Eagles can simply Trade A Dillard if they are discouraged with him and get a 2nd Round Pick in return if they are planning to bring Peters back for 2020 and then would need to Re-Sign Big V as the swing OT

Lots of Options and the Eagles should not be afraid to look into any of them .. Good Solid RT’s are a dime a dozen and half the salary that LJ earns ..

I think we can all agree that the Draft and Free-Agency are a crap Shoot
The key is Drafting and Coaching well to what your Teams philosophy is to match what these new Players (Rookies or Free-Agents) can do in terms of what to what their strengths are , are coachable too and are willing to put the time,work in to meet and excel to what the Teams System and Philosophy is..
Coach Pedersen, similar to Andy Reid is going to be an Offensive Team First and rely that their QB’s will make the best decisions and plays when it matters the most, but you have to have Playmakers to surround the QB and right now the Eagles have 2 Playmakers in TE Ertz and RB Sanders, everyone else at the WR and RB are not experienced enough or injured too often to be relied on

Talent on the field- since he has taken over for the guy who re-invented football he has done a good job- I listed 5 years (one of those years may have been kelly) and a substantial number of picks have contributed-
A real GM evaluates 24/7/365– obviously you will not give a smidge of credit in that for the last two years Howie and his staff along with the coaching staff has been masterful at finding TALENT, undrafted talent and plugged them in for injured players- contributing in a big way into making it to the playoffs– I guess you call that horse manure- thats cuz your a dummy and winning isn’t important to you– only fake evaluation — picking 200 players a year and when 50 of them turn out to be decent say “see I told you so”

One thing to take notice about the Eagles most Recent Run of Success these last 4 Years of making the Post-Season is how Weak and Dysfunctional their Opponents have been in the NFC East — The Giants, Redskins and Cowboys from their Ownership, Front Offices, Coaching Staffs and down to their Players have been pretty bad and definite underachievers in recent Years, so though the Eagles have Won the NFC East in 2 of the last 3 Seasons, its not like they have been far superior to their weaker Divisional Opponents, it’s almost as if the Eagles have been Winning the NFC East by default, in recent seasons ..
But in the end, it’s always better to Win your Division and have a chance in the Post-Season than not..

Do Watch for Improvements from both the Redskins under Ron Rivera and the Cowboys under HC Mike McCarthy who will bring some more creativity to their Offense than Jason Garrett ever did
The NY Giants can only go up and have some nice Young Offensive Players (RB,WR & QB) to build around but their Defense has a long, long ways to go but the Eagles should be able to take full advantage of these Coaching and System Changes for their other 3 Teams in the NFC East and the Eagles have made some important Coaching Changes as well to their Offense so we’ll see how it goes..

Right Now – the Class of the NFC is with the 49ers, Saints, Seahawks & Packers with the Vikings, Eagles and Rams along with the Bears and Cowboys trying to climb in with some surprise Teams likely to enter the Playoff Race for the 2020 Season (TB Bucs, Falcons)

I think trading is a real obstacle for some people..

I never said Howie Roseman wasn’t a good GM. I said his Achilles heel has always been his talent evaluation
That’s not even debatable, because it’s common knowledge around the media, and the NFL.

No need to further reason on the matter, he outright admitted his approach to this process had to change. But that’s not saying he’s a bad GM. If he could identify better talent in the draft, signing free agents wouldn’t be a necessity to make up for mistakes in the draft……that’s all.

I’d rather have Howie than most current GM’s managing my cap. That being said u wish Howie had some if their eyes for better talent.

Contributions yes…impact no. Because overall we have drafted at this point mediocre talent.

I personally like some of what’s on that list like Carson, Barnett -who I still think is going to be a good player. Goedert, and Miles Sanders……everyone else is underwhelming to me, as it also is with most.

That being said the other than the 3 I mentioned, all the others contribution is minimal. No need to feel we’re okay….mainly because we’re not.

We can get Younger, and faster if his talent evaluation was better.

Just because your content with his level of quality of talent since drafting Carson, doesn’t mean I have to agree gullubbly, knowing that point of view is assinine considering our play, our defense, our speed, our age for the last 3 years.

They were piss poor in their overall performance this year, and now they’re too old, and slow, and the rest of the division, and the league is getting better……and we’re still stuck in 2017…

RB Darryton Evans
LB Akeem Davis-Gaithers

GmCliff
GmCliff
March 6, 2020 9:53 am

These two prospects are right from your backyard.

Saw both at the combine, and have watched film on both.

Evans reminds me of a poor man’s Frank Gore, but shorter, really needs to work on his blocking, and perhaps a little bit stronger for the NFL. Other than that, it’s what you expect for smaller school prospects. Evans has good quickness, and is fast. I believe he ran a 4.4 at the combine. Excellent in the passing game. If he were taller, and played at a power 5 school he would be drafted higher 4-6 Round.

Davis – Gaither, is the better prospect of the 2. Good Range, advanced in his angles. Very instinctive, very violent in his playing temperament – that’s what you want in a Linebacker. His concerns are his ability to shed blocks, his speed could be better, but plays faster than his click time. Could be a career Backup, could spell a starter if injured for a significant period of time as he grows in experience at the NFL Level. He does possess the mental drive to become, an eventual starter. 3-4 Round.

Good Analysis GMCliff as i’ve watched both these Players here at App State grown over the last 3 Seasons or so…. RB Evans also can pay dividends in the Return Game as a Kick/Punt Returner , he is a little light in the pants and will need to get strong as all young Players do, but he has Speed, Burst and Shiftiness that I can think he can make a 53 Man Roster as a 3rd RB/Special-Teamer and Provide Value and Depth and even a change of pace from the Top 2 RB’s on Most Teams

LB Davis-Gaither is again on the smaller side but has excellent Instincts and heart of a lion when Playing.. He has the Frame to get up to about 235-240lbs in 2 Years Time without losing any of his Quickness and I see him being used as a Situational LB in the Passing Game as well as a Special Teamer

HAC is Fine with me and brings up Good Points
from time to time ..
He admits he doesn’t follow the College Game/Players much, so he isn’t going to toss our prospects out there too often…
He is incorrect though that the Eagles Draft “BPA” when all Teams Draft for Needs when they have to replace aging Players, Players they will lose in Free-Agency or Players who simply aren’t getting it done which every Team has to deal with.
We’ve see it Year after Year with all Teams
and their Picks .. especially the Top 3 Rounds Selections which are about filling Needs and not Drafting the BPA which begins to happen in the later Rounds as the Prospects start to thin out

you already admitted in the nfl all positions are a position of need dummy.
recent high draft picks include a TE and LT — both positions were currently being manned by pro bowl guys- they were not immediate needs- A WR after signing 30 million in WR– if you want to say they drafted those guys to develop behind the pro bowl guys i would agree– but they weren’t plugged into a NEED-
BPA available in positions held important–

You Need 2 TE’s in Today’s NFL so Drafting Dallas Goedert was a need as B Celek was approaching Retirement and the Eagles didn’t want the Cowboys to Select him so they Grabbed him just before their Pick if my Memory serves me well
LT J Peters was 36/37 Years Old before last Years Draft so Drafting a LT was a Big Need for the Eagles
You rarely have any Draft Pick step right in an perform at a High Level in Year 1 and especially at the Most important Positions as QB, LT, Center,WR, DE,CB,etc,etc

So by your Logic, when the Eagles come to #21 in the 1st Round on Draft Night and there’s a QB or TE or OT who is their Highest Rated Player on their Draft Board at that moment, Do You think the Eagles would/should take this Player or Address one of there many other pressing Needs like WR.. They typically have Drafted with their Highest Rated Player for their specific Needs and especially at those Critical Positions DE,CB or OL or in this years case, at WR to get “Playmakers” which Howie has been saying all off-season, “We have to Surround Wentz with Playmakers , that’s my Job” ..

No dummy when you have one all pro tight end you don’t NEED another… another is a luxury.

HAC has an identity crisis??? are you insane (rhetorical question)? – You come on a blog and claim to be a trained and accomplished evaluator of professional athletes– if you step back and i guess if you weren’t insane you would realize how completely ridiculous that is. HAC points out you aren’t trained or accomplished- you can say you are but you can’t prove it– if you were an evaluator the eagles have lost 2 big names from their personnel dept in the last couple of years- you aren’t even entry level– you aren’t accomplished
Fraudman- it has nothing to do with doing something wrong- HAC’s point is that those teams are in the fray- in the mix- you sit around and throw crap against wall (Hac’s term) – HAC doesn’t forgive all wrongs- some things work in the real world some don’t- you will name 200 players who you “like” in the next month– when a couple work out you will say “like fraudman said”-
the fans analysis has ZERO to do with success- he pointed out that the eagles were one of the winningest teams, with a a recent SB yet you don’t care about wins– you only care to nitpick each thing that doesn’ t work out.and how you can do better–

Paul, i think we’re both high on Gabriel Davis, Kyle Dugger, and Jeremy Chinn.

Not all WR’s that run a 4.4 or better, will Excel in the NFL. If you watch the drills with some of those WR prospects, some are really overrated ad prospects. Gabriel Davis would be a steal in the 3rd, or 4th round, and a mistake for the Eagles to pass on him.

Dugger, and Chinn could be the future Safety tandem for the Eagles. I wouldn’t bring back Malcolm Jenkins, but if they did, they would be smart to draft both of them continuing the theme of younger and faster that Howie’s speaking of.

They certainly can’t come in and start, but it would be smart proactive thinking for them to have those two waiting in the wings.

Talking about Vrabel and the Titans rise with Ryan Tannehill of all QB’s, wonder if QB Marcus Mariota would entertain coming to the Eagles as a Back-Up or if Coach Pedersen even has an interest in him .. Mariota appears to be damaged goods almost at this point in his Career

Yeah right, you have selective memory, because the guys I’ve mocked have a higher percentage of success than Howie’s picks over the years, and Andy Reid…..

You’re not even close to accurate.

You’ve mentioned some mistakes but give Howie props, then ignore that large amount of misses in comparison just being the complete asshole you are……..what else is new….lol….what a hypothetical jackass you are.

Cliff things in the real world are measure in wins. You don’t care about wins. If u judge someone as more gifted and talented you don’t care about wins. You picked loomis and Payton …sexy names, excellent football lifers…solid choices for sure… but their championship winning % is worse than Howie and Doug…. you said this 3 qbs were mediocre..
Fact is you were 0-3… you just have no idea what u r talking about because to you it’s not wins that matter it’s raw talent.

All LB Joe Schobert does is make Tackles
408 of them in his first 4 Seasons in the NFL along with his 2017 Pro-Bowl to go along with 20 Pass Break-Ups, 6 Int’s and 7 Forced Fumbles and 8.5 Sacks in his Career though he’s not a Pass-Rusher by any means but more of an Inside LB who can diagnose Plays quickly and Play sideline and make Tackles besides being good locker room/teammate
He seems to me to worth an investment of a 3 Year Deal that isn’t going to break any Bank and he is in his Prime now and turns just 27 in November so he has a good 4-5 Years left in him barring any major injuries and would be an excellent mentor to all the Young LB’s on Eagles Roster moving forward

I like Tre Boston and think he’s a solid Player, He’s not Stud or a Pro-Bowler or anything like that but again would bring in some stability to the back end if Eagles move on from both Safeties McLeod and Jenkins ..
I do envision Avonte Maddox moving to the Free-Safety role vacated by McLeod departure and be that kind of that Centerfielder on the back end and the Eagles adding a Safety in the Draft (McKinney or Winfield Jr, Dugger or Chinn) so having a Veteran like Boston can by the Eagles a season or two until the young Players learn
Boston will be 28 this Summer and has been a relatively healthy Player in his Career

Paul I will tell a story as to why I don’t say much about coaching, player development that is beyond my level of accomplishment… when I first got into coaching I had a D1 coach come in to talk to me and the head coach about a player they were recruiting. I was very excited, I was the kids position coach and the D cord. It was cool, I ran my mouth for what felt like 20 minutes. I was telling the coach about how I projected him in their scheme, what position I thought he should play, what his best moves were, how we used him etc… he stopped me, “coach I really appreciate your input and all you’ve done for him but we have our own criteria, we use our own measurable to slot them into positions etc”. My head coach said after the meeting…. “people who have never done ‘it’ at the next level up shouldn’t project, judge, criticize above them… it’s like a pop warner coach criticizing us”… it was a valuable lesson… the people who put their time in are all trying to get it right… the guys on the internet… all of them, even the ones getting paid for their opinion are just blowing smoke…they know nothing.
I enjoy your posts, u know your a goofy guy slinging shit. For some reason the other one actually thinks he’s a good GM or evaluator… it’s bizarre and retarded.

March 7, 2020 7:53 pm

And all that you said is irrelevant, to someone who has a better understanding of Front Office Football Operations than the normal guy walking the street…..

Like you said that coach told you they ” have their own criteria”…..you were inexperienced in how that coach went about doing things, thus you didn’t have a leg to stand on to have freedom of speech – based upon that coaches personal criteria.

A lot of College coaches don’t have NFL experience, but they have, and understand both the foundation, the mechanics, and the science if the game to adapt, if they were educated in the game on a level higher than let’s say a pop Warner coach – as yourself – maybe.

I don’t work for a professional organization, because I was disabled before I had an opportunity to use my qualifications to pursue that opportunity. However, just because I don’t fit your uneducated criteria doesn’t mean I’m not qualified – That’s the flaw with your narrative.

Your real issue is you don’t believe it… So what?…..I still understand the foundation, mechanics, and science of front office football operations better than you, – because I do have a leg to stand on, thus have freedom of speech to speak, and offer my opinion on the subject, whether you can handle that or not, – like or not.

And that doesn’t prevent people like Paul, or yourself from offering their personal opinion on Gcobb.com, because there are no qualifications necessary to do so. So who are you to criticize someone else’s opinion – do you really have a leg to stand on, considering you just admitted you don’t know much about coaching, player development, corporate finance, analytical perceptions, business forecasting, etc…..so no one can have expectations of your opinions when they don’t present themselves as reasonable?? So you offer nothing on topic purposely, because you really know nothing…so no one can criticize you…..right??

No you don’t otherwise you would see that great coaches and great GMs have their ups and downs… some take years and years for everything to fall in place… Payton and Loomis who you have coveted are no better or worse than the top half of GM/coach combos.
The point of the story is that people who have done something in the field of athletics don’t sit back and toot their own horn and criticize those that do it because they understand there are many variables with each play or player… you don’t get it… it’s ok, the fact that you don’t understand is the big story.

Whatever, and you don’t listen, and can’t read.

I’ve never said GM’s don’t have their ups, and downs that’s what you said. Paul, and I have been wrong on players because there is no exact science to identifying talent, some of it is what’s inside the prospects themselves.

Everybody criticizes the GM, fans, media alike, and not all of them have front office experience, but some things are common sense.

Like when the strength of the draft is on the Defensive side of the ball, and you draft a wide receiver that would have been there in the 4th round – and the wrong WR, and an offensive lineman – which I understand – in the first two rounds.

but we needed to be proactive in our thinking knowing that Malcolm, and McCleod were declining, and coming off an injury in McCleod’s case. The Safety from Maryland whose name escapes me, and Nasir Adderley are on the board – and years before GMCliff, kept insisting on drafting Justin Simmons.

Also, when Brandon Graham had proven inconsistent, and refuse to see it, and give him a raise.Years before GMCliff kept screaming Yannick Ngakoue in the draft in the 3rd round that year to replace him….I can see he’s never been all that, and many totally overate him.

Criticizing comes with the territory but each GM, and scout has their own individual vision of a professional. If you’d ask Ozzie Newsome what he saw in all his draft picks that no other GM saw, the other 31 GM’s would probably beg to differ. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder- and no one would question him.

And you should take your own advice, and just respect the opinions if others that differ from yours as well.

Paul, I believe the entire secondary with the exception of Le Blanc, and Maddox should all be replaced and upgraded…..and Maddox isn’t that great but in the slot, he’s tolerable.

We need two new young Linebackers with speed, and need to draft -at least – 3, but one high to start, and two to develop to start.

We need Pass Rush in a major way. Trading for Ngakoue should be priority, and I want to get rid of Brandon Graham, and use his salary to use to get Clowney….Younger, Faster, Dominating DE’s backed up by Barnett, and Avery.

GM Cliff,
I don’t see how you Rebuild the Secondary,
the LB and then address the WR Corps in one Draft/Free-Agency Period
I think they Sign 1 Free Agent at CB,LB and possibly Safety depending on Malcom Jenkins situation) and 1 WR for sure this Free-Agency period, then Address the WR,Secondary,DL Positions with their first 4-5 Draft Picks
Or at least I hope they do..

So by my count that’s 6 defensive backs, 3 LB, 2 high priced DE (sacrifice a medium price DE)… that’s 11 players… assuming 8 are expected to have immediate impact… should be easy to do…or maybe impossible to do… I don’t think Howie has enough experience to pull all that off.

Do the Eagles with their 10 Draft Picks move up to get their Targeted Player .
Maybe Trade WR Jeffrey with a re-worked Contract & their 1st and 3rd Round Picks Pick to move up 4-7 Spots? The Jets or Raiders as possibilities with the Eagles having good relationships with Their GM’s Joe Douglas and Mike Mayock
If they Target or Covet WR’s Lambe or Jeudy perhaps..

Or do they sit back and Draft as many Players as they can with these Top 6-7 Selections in the first 4 Rounds
I think they stay put and add quantity with quality in this first half of the Draft
They currently have 4 Selections in the Top 100 Picks
And then they 3 more Selections in the 4th Round between 120 and 140 or so !! Meaning the Eagles would have some real Salary Cap Flexibility the following 2-3 Years or so with so many young Players under Rookie Deals if they select the right Players of course..

shame on me for my continual bullying of the boy in the special class but here goes!
plan for the eagles moving forward:
They have 10 draft picks and some cap flexibility -details of that flexibility are complicated and beyond the comprehension of anyone not directly involved with the NFL agreements-
So go into the draft looking to pick up 2 starters- positions? all positions are needed so for sake of argument- a DB (safety or CB), and a WR– if they get that its a win- of the other draft picks you need 5 that will contribute as depth and spec. teams.
FA= I would say a couple of second tier guys in the mold of Jenkins 5-6 years ago- not the top FA but next level down-
Thats the plan

Let Coach Pederson and Staff Coach these 8-10 Draft Picks to surround the Core of Eagles for a good run in the next 3-4 Years
I would Re-Sign/Extend Malcom Jenkins for a new 2-3 Year Deal
Let Jason. peters walk and attemp to Re-Sign Big V as the 3rd OT behind LJ and Dillard

All valid Points

Big V is looking for an opportunity to Start as well as aNice Salary which he won’t get as a Back-Up… I would Offer him a 2-3 Year woth about $5-$6 Million , if he wants more $$ and longer Term Deal, then would go to Plan B

CB Breeland will likely get overpaid with his Success in the Playoffs for the Super Bowl Champ Chiefs and the fact that there are not many Quality Free Agent CB’s out there nor is this a Deep CB Draft so he will be overpaid .. I would Offer a 3 Year – $35 Million Deal —

LB J Schobert I would offer a 3 Year $25 Million Deal — Would be a Great Player to man the middle of the Eagles Defense for Schwartz I believe.. Schobert doesn’t say much and just comes to work every Day and every Game and produces on the Field

WR R Anderson – I would Offer a 3 Year $25 – $30 Million Deal with Incentives — Do Note that the WR Draft Class is super Deep this Draft with lots of Speed Players too so there may not be as many suitors or Big $$$ flying around for Free-Agent WR’s this year in the NFL as Years past..
If any of these 3 Above Players want or offered more $$$ , then I would move over to other Free-Agents .. I star far away for CB Byron Jones or James Bradberry as they are overrated and will be paid much higher than what they produce as the CB Market is upside down
I would not Trade High Picks for CB Darius Slay or Patrick Peterson, I stay away from DE Jadaveon Clowney as far as I could ..
I also have rad some reports about LA Chargers FA RB Melvin Gordon, No Thanks !!
