Don’t Let The Door Hit You On The Way Out Carson….

The Eagles have traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts for a third round pick in 2021 and a second round pick in 2022 which could possibly turn into a first round pick.  I don’t think it’s a good deal for the Eagles.  It’s something they had to do because Carson didn’t want to go to Chicago.   It forced the Eagles to have to trade him to Indianapolis and it had gotten to the point where they had to make the deal or wind up being stuck with a reluctant Wentz for another year.

I don’t see how you can be enthusiastic about supporting Carson Wentz with the way that he leaves town.  You know that he started crying when he was benched after he was playing horribly all year long.  Doug Pederson had to sit him down, but Wentz still moped about being benched.  He threw more interceptions than any quarterback in the NFL this past season.

He sat out the last game of the season and he hasn’t said a thing since he was benched.  Why not stand up and admit that you played horribly.   His behavior for months has just came across like a spoiled brat.  I always was a supporter of Carson Wentz previously but with all the negative attitude that has come out has made me say,  GOOD RIDDANCE!!!

Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.  He’s definitely not a Philly guy because he doesn’t have the mental toughness to be a Philly guy.  I hope for the best for him, but he needs to get tougher mentally.  He’s going to be forced to be tougher in order to thrive in the NFL.  You’ve got to have mental toughness to be a good a leader, especially in a city like Philadelphia.  You’re going to have to face criticism.

I want to ask him if he thinks he should have been benched last year.  Refusing to talk after he was benched makes me think he didn’t think he should have been benched after being the worst starting quarterback in the NFL last season.  We didn’t hear from him when Pederson was fired and we didn’t hear from him with Sirianni was hired.

I’ll be very interested in seeing how he plays because the Indianapolis situation is IDEAL.  They have a great offensive line along with good playmakers and a very good defense.  If he plays the way he is capable of playing or the way he did in 2017, he could lead them to a Super Bowl title.  I’ll be very interested in seeing what style does he decide to play as.  Will he be the daring Carson who tries to run over linebackers or will he get the ball out of his hands and throw balls away when plays break down.  I will be very interested in seeing what he does.  In 2021, I will have one eye on the Eagles and the other eye on the Colts.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich is the right guy to get Wentz back on stride like he was in the Super Bowl season.  I’ll be interested in seeing whether Carson listens to Reich’s guidance.  Will he throw check downs to the running backs or will he hang onto the football like he did here in Philadelphia?

If you look at the Colts and their division, they are just about already in the playoffs.  They have Jacksonville and the Texans (without start QB Deshaun Watson) in their division.  Tennessee is the only other good football team in the AFC South.  There will be pressure on Wentz to produce immediately and they won’t be interested in excuses.  It’s time to step up big fella and the entire NFL and the nation will be watching.

February 18, 2021 12:29 pm

It is a good get…. time to move forward…

February 18, 2021 1:04 pm

I was at the coliseum game when wentz vs goff was a special occasion, now Botha trajectories are circumvent,. All I saw at that moment were two qbs taken 1-2 battling and with a staff of coaches (now departed) a ab in wentzilla who was balling . Howie is culpable of leaving Ames’s in aisle 11,and if he again picks a qb. Well they say 3 strikes “you’re out”

February 18, 2021 1:55 pm

Jalen Hurts has showed us a lot… He is a very humble dude. He is a leader. Very calm and has strong poise in the pocket. He has shown the ability to get better & better since his days at Bama. He has played in huge games.

Highly recommend you guys watch his youtube video on “How a NFL QB trains” pretty good watch on youtube.

I hope we give him a great WR in Chase at 6.

I just do not see it…I can see Lance being the pick @ 6 just to troll Wentz even further.

Bon Voyage, The Wentz Era lasted 5 Seasons where he compiled a Career Record of
35-32-1 Record as a Starter with 0 Playoff Wins and was just 17-21-1 his final 3 Seasons with the Eagles and was definitely not worthy of a Franchise level of QB Status or Contract

The Eagles will have to bite the Cap Hit for $33.8 Million for 2021 for the damage was already done when they extending his deal
but now they will save themselves from the remaining $80-$85 Million or so for any future compensation to #11 and get this bad contract off the books once and for all

Not an ideal situation for sure, but at least they are not saddling the New Coaching Staff with keeping Wentz and the Drama around which would have been a tough situation to start the Sirianna Era on the right path

Trade a few more Veterans and Draft Well and Rebuild the Roster from OL/DL out and add Skill Players
I wouldn’t mind seeing any player over 28 Years old Traded for Draft Capital in 2021 and or 2023
I mean everyone , Players like Z Ertz, F Cox, B Graham, B Brooks, L Johnson, R McLeod,
D-Jax ..add those 3rd,4th & 5th Round Selections the couple of Drafts

Top Coddled/Spoiled Athletes in Philadelphia Sports History

1) Carson Wentz
2) Eric Lindros

Competing at #3 is Joel Embiid and Bryce Harper ..

Maybe Allen Iverson belongs on this list too and just make it Top 5 Coddled Athletes

February 18, 2021 2:13 pm

Bryce Harper is a MAN and doesn’t belong on the list! He’s a stand up guy and takes responsibility. He wants to win and plays hard as hell.
Embiid is actually number ONE on that list!
Since you always go to the toxic how bout top 5 man up guys in Philly sports…

Yes, they will take a $33.8 Million Hit for 2021 and than be clear of any future financial obligation to him
If he was on the Roster March 19th ,
The Eagles would have not only paid a $10 Million Roster Bonus but his 2022 $25 Million Contact would have been Guaranteed
So it’s huge financially to move him now though this deal will not officially be announced until March 16th the NFL new 2021 calendar year begins
March 19th was always the drop-dead
date of moving him

Guard Brooks to the NY Jets for their 3rd Round Pick (#66th Pick) and 2022 5th Round Pick
DE Barnett to the Dolphins for their 2nd Round Pick (#50th Pick)

Eagles Now have the Following Draft Capital going into the 2021 Draft in the firs 3 Rounds

1st – #6 WR Ja’mar Chase LSU ( 6-0 208lbs)
2nd – #38 Safety Trevor Moehrig – TCU (6-2 209lbs)
2nd – #50 CB Thomas Graham – Oregon (5-11 195lbs)

3rd – #70 OL Dillon Radnuz – North Daklota St (6-6 300lbs)
3rd -#79 TE Hunter Long – Boston College (6-5 255lbs)

Use the Remainder of the Draft for LB,RB,DL,OL,WR
Sign Free-Agent QB Tyrod Taylor or Jacoby Brisset to a 2 Year Back-up Contract and let Jalen Hurts and let it rip

February 18, 2021 4:40 pm

Is Barnett under contract?
Nobody gonna pay for him… he’s expensive
I also believe ur over valuing Ertz …
I do agree it’s time to dump some players and let younger guys take over leadership BUT I believe they hold tight with OL Johnson and brooks…. a good OL allows them to sneak into playoffs

D Barnett has 1 more Season at $10 Million for 2021 as the Team picked up his 5th Year option from his Rookie Deal since he was a 1st Round Selection, If they Keep him, they will likely offer him a 3-4 Yeear Deal, Give him a lower Salary with some Pro-Rated Bonus $$$ which can be stretched out over the term of the Deal as they have done with many Players, Im not so sure they want to commit to him

Ertz is probably more of a 4th Rounder in Return so a 3rd Rounder is me bring overly optimistic because the Patriots are in deep need for TE/WR Help and Patriots HC Belichek has always been a fan of Ertz’s Play and Work ethicx

Lane Johnson’s Contract has been resturctured 2-3 Times so it makes it very Difficult to move him as he has High Dead Cap #’s in 2022 and 2023,

Brooks is due $10 million Salary and another $2.5 Million in in Bonuses,etc,etc for 2021,
I believe the Team has an “Opt Out” Option on his Deal after the 2021 Season before his the final 3 Years of his most recent Extension kicks in for 2022, 2023 & 2024 which would pay him $12-$13 Million a Season in Salary Plus $2 Million in Bonuses

Big Money in both these Players

February 18, 2021 7:21 pm

The Eagles need to keep Sweat and Barnett…both are young and will only get better.

The more I look at this trade the more I like it. The Eagles got rid of a player who wanted to be gone, and dumped his 40 million on the Colts for two draft picks. Most likely will be a 3rd and a last 1st. I think Colts make playoffs with that defense and OL.

Carson will be healthy and play over 70% of the snaps.

One can argue we won the trade. We did not destroy the Colts. Cause even if Wentz goes down… they are fine also.

Eagles did not Dump the $40 Million to the Colts, The Eagles are eating the $34.8 Million on their 2021 Cap Space as Dead Money as this amount was part of his Signing Bonus and New Extension that he signed in 2019
The Eagles own this Cap Hit and Not the Colts
The Colts are responsible for his 2021 Salary and any future bonuses but the Eagles just took the largest Cap Hit in NFL History by a huge margin …
The Rams just took a $22 Million Hit for Jared Goff and the Eagles eclipsed this by almost 50% so thry will feel the Pain

Think of it like this ,
The NFL just set the Salary Cap at $185 Million
per Team , the Eagles will be working with $151 Million to construct their Roster

Looking at the Eagles Salary Commitments for 2021 even with Wentz being gone , they still are Approx $40 Million over the $185 Cap Figure for 2021
The Eagles can or will Release/Trade
A Jeffrey, M Jackson, D-Jax, M Goodwin and Z Ertz at a minimum and still be close to the Cap Limit and this has nothing to do with them trying to sign any of their Own Free-Agents like A Singleton, B Scott , T Fulgham or J Mills not does this account for pursuing any Free-Agents that are out there around the NFL
Also each team needs to set aside money for heir Draft Class of 2021 so Howie’s off-season Work has really just begun and Fans will need to be patient as the Eagles Roster will be loaded with Draft Picks and Undrafted Free-Agents and cheapo 1 Year Deals with back-up Type of Players from other teams
It’s is what it is and this was coming down the pike 3 years ago as the Eagles felt their SB Window was still open.. Now it’s a Rebuild/Transition tine for the Organization
Fans and Local Media need to understand this
and be patient

Predicting health is impossible… one bad hit, a crazy twist or whatever… hopefully he plays well.. he’s been healthy for two straight years.
Eagles will rue this day… whatever the accountant did to piss him off.,, I hope it comes out

February 18, 2021 9:30 pm

With two very good off-seasons this team can be back in serious contention. It comes down to Drafting and Hurts obviously.

We have seen worse teams turn things around quickly. Raegor, Dallas G, Miles Sanders, Jordan Mailata/Dillard, and the young OL depth is starting to come around.

My slept on player in 2021 is JJ Arcega Whiteside. I think Nick Sirianni can turn him around in year 3. Will he be elite? No. But I think he is better then most think..Carson never gave him a chance, and injuries plagued his rookie campaign.

Draft Jamar Chase and suddenly you have quite the young offensive nucleus. The real issue will be the DL and secondary. Gotta get some depth on the back end and help Gannon out. DL finished top 3 in sacks and I think Cox has 2-3 more great years left. Javon started to pick things up as the season went on, and Brandon G is aging like fine whine.

Eagles can be back in this thing I have high faith in Jalen

Something just tells me though….Trey Lance will be the pick

I hope the Panthers at #8 or the Broncos at #9
Offer to trade up with the Eagles for the #6 Pick for QB Lance, who I believe is going to be a real project in the NFL..Eagles can gain at least another pick or 2 for doing so and still end up with a very Good Position Player at WR,OL or CB

I believe the Top QB is Lawrence who will go First to the Jags, then it’s a little Drop off with Wilson and Fields and then a larger drop off to Trey Lance, Mac Jones, Kyle Trask

I think the Top3 QB’s will be gone by the 4th Overall Pick when the Falcons select
At #th Spot, the Bengals will go OL or WR as they have their young QB already making the Eagles 6th Pick very valuable to Teams below them that have a need for a QB Prospect
(Panthers #8, Broncos #9 , 49ers #12 and Patriots #15 )
and could get some good Draft Capital by trading down a few Spots

Eagles in Trade Talks with multiple Teams on
Zach Ertz with the LA Chargers who will be losing Current TE Hunter Henry to Free Agency
Should be a good fit and target for Justin Herbert and their Offense
Reports have the Chargers offering Ertz a 2 Year Extension to secure the Deal and the
Eagles will receive a 4th Round Pick in 2021 in Return

Next on the Trading Blocks are Receivers D-Jax and M Goodwin as the Eagles continue to clear up Cap Space and try to add to their Draft Capital which would be late Round Draft Selections (a 6th or more likely 7th Round Picks in return)for these 2 aging WR at best

Also rumored is the Eagles are shopping DE Derek Barnett and OL A Dillard to see what their Trade Market may be …
Both are still Young and play critical positions that many Teams have needs for and would likely Return a 2nd or early 3rd Round Pick in Return..

Current Eagles Salary Cap Situation with Wentz Traded and Gone

2021 Cap Limit as Set by the NFL $185 Million Per Team
Eagles Roller Unused Cap $$$ from the 2020 Season is $22 Million
Adjusted Eagles Cap Space for 2021 is $185 + $22 for an approx $207 Million Total
Eagles Current Players under Contract for 2021 is Approx 224 Million
Dead Cap Space for 2021 (from Wentz Deal) is Approx $34 Million
Total Cap Amount for the Eagles in 2021 is $258 Million
Estimated Cap Space for 2021 – 50 Million (2nd Worse in the NFL behind the NO Saints)

The Top 10 Highest Paid Players Under Contract for the Eagles make up 70% of their Cap Space which is way out of whack and here they are with approx current Cap Hit Figures for 2021

1) Fletcher Cox – $24 Million
2) Brandon Graham – $18 Million
3) Lane Johnson – $18 Million
4) Darius Slay – $16 Million
5) Javon Hargrave – $15 Million
6) Brandon Brooks – $14.5 Million
7) Zach Ertz – $12 Million
8) Desean Jackson – $10 Million
9) Derek Barnett – $10 Million
10) Jason Kelce – $8 MIllion

Only 2 Players, J Hargrave and D Barnett, are under the Age of 30 Years Old, which is not a good balance for when you are now Re-Building your Roster during this new Transition for the Team, so expect some Trades and flat our Releases from the this list, Maybe Kelce Retires which I expect and saves $8 Million
Many of these PLayers have had their Contracts Restructured once or twice already (Cox,LJ, Graham, Brooks) so its pretty unlikely they can be re-structured again for this would be even more $$$ kicked further down the road in the form of future Dead $$$

I believe both J Hargrave and D Slay who signed new Contracts last Year will be asked to Re-Structured and hopefully will obliged but no guarantee that they will, many Players don’t like to re-structure when the Team is in a re-build mode, they are likely to do it for chasing a Championship, but not for a rebuild so could be a precarious situation when approaching these 2 Players when trying to build Team Chemistry

Lots of Moves have to happen this Off-Season and its going to be more Subraction than Addition

February 19, 2021 11:02 am

I don’t think its all doom and gloom cap wise. As stated in another thread teams that have success find themselves in this situation. Its a one year fickle. You have to pay the guys who are going to help you compete and ultimately with the NFL you find yourselves in terrible shape- its how they maintain a more level playing field …. look at some of the top teams from this last year who are traditional doormats: Buffalo, Browns, Miami, Tampa, even WFC-THATS GOOD FOR THE LEAGUE.
Conversely, traditionally good teams: Pats, Eagles, now the saints, Pitt are going through tough times- it is how the nfl operates and always keeps hope for bad teams- masterful marketing, masterful use of a hard cap, masterful use of the collective bargaining agreement… NFL knows their shit.

The Key to help minimize the Downturns that most Franchises will have from time to time is too hit on your Draft Picks, Develop Young Players to at least be competitive and of course, not have the Core of your Players get too old at the same time which is the Eagles Current Situation ..
A nice Balance of Solid Veterans along with Up and Coming Young Players is what every Team Strives for
but the Eagles have gotten too Veteran Heavy with their Roster and their Cap Situation since the Super Bowl and will finally cut the cord this Season on some Players as they are kind of forced too

For 2021 , since the Eagles are going with a New, Young Coaching Staff and Schemes and a New QB
(hopefully J Hurts) I would rather them take a step back and play as many Young Players as possible to develop the next Core of Players
I don’t want to see Players like Jason Peters, Vinny Curry, A Jeffrey, D-Jax, M Jackson, R Mcleod, Robey-Coleman, Corey Clement, Z Ertz, taking snaps from younger Players who may be part of the future Core of the Team
Whether the Eagles Win 4 Games or 6 Games in 2021 isn’t that much of a big deal to me, but I do want to see Improvement,Fight and Passion from the Younger Players to be able to determine who is the Future Core of Eagles
Players who are over 30 + (Cox,Graham,Brooks,LJ, Ertz,D-Jax,Kelce) are simply not the Future for the Eagles so why not move as many as them as Possible and move forward with the next generation of Eagles Players and get your future Cap Situation in great shape where you can target some free-agents to help fill holes in the Roster and to help Retain some of the Young Talent you have Drafted and Developed– Next Year, Players like D Goedart, M Sanders, J Sweat, D Barnett, J Mailata,, A Maddox will have their Contracts coming up..

Break the Roster Down and Re-Build it Back Up – The NFC has 3-4 Top Teams all with Aging QB’s who are not going to play more longer (Bucs, Packers, Rams with Stafford, Saints with Brees who is probably retiring this off-season) so start the Turn around Process in Full this Year and Next and be right in the mix with the WFT, NY Giants, Cardinals, 49ers, Panthers, Lions,Falcons who are going thru similar transitions or even a couple of these Teams started a year or two ago
Bottom line is that You have to Build your Team to Beat your Competition in your Own Division
Right Now the WFT, Cowboys, Giants all have the edge over the Eagles when looking at the Rosters
WFT is the most Physical Team in the Division, the Cowboys have the Best Receiver and QB in the Division and the Giants are probably the best Coached Team that w have in the NFL East
Eagles have the chance to overtake all these Teams in all of these areas but its going to take some time and patience and learning curves to do so..
The Big Question is will the Eagles Fan Base and Local Media be Patient to see this Transition thru ?

Panthers Release Starting Safety Tre Boston (Age 29) who had 2 Years of his Contract left..
A 7 Year Veteran and Popular Player , 5 Seasons with the Panthers and 2 Years with the Chargers, but ends up as another Cap Casualty as most Teams are shaving their Rosters of Older Players with decent Salaries for 2021 and beyond due to the reduced Cap Space across the NFL
(Cap Limit was $200 Million in 2020 and now it’s down to $185 Million in 2021 due loss revenue with Covid-19)

Here are some of the Top Free-Agents available in the NFL who are under the Age of 25

1) WR – Chris Godwin – TB Bucs
2) Safety – Marcus Williams – NO Saints
3) DE – Yannick Ngakoue – Ravens

6) WR – Curtis Samuel – Panthers
7) DE – Carl Lawson – Bengals
8) CB – Shaquille Griffin – Seahawks

10) CB – Chidowbie Awuzie – Cowboys

A Pretty Nice Group of Talented and still Young Players who are coming off their Rookie Deals and looking for that nice 2nd Lucrative Contract that will change their lives forever
I believe only JJ Shuster and Y Ngakoue were First Round Selections but I would have to research this

After Researching, None of these 10 Above Players were 1st Round Picks
They were all 2nd/3rd/4th Round Selections by their Repective Teams
(Ngakoue was a 3rd Round Draft Pick in 2016 Draft by the Jags and then Traded to the Ravens)

2nd Round Selections in the 2017 Draft were Marcus Williams, Curtis Samuel , JuJu Shuster, C Awuzie
3rd Round Selections in the 2017 Draft were Chris Godwin, Shaquille Griffin, John Johnson, Jonuu Smith
4th Round in 2017 was DE Carl Lawson

When looking back at that 2017 Draft, Wow , a ton of Very Good Players like QB’s Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, DE Myles Garrett, Safety Jamaal Adams,RB Chrisitan McCaffrey, CB Marshon Lattimore, CB Marlon Humphrey, CB Tre Daarius White, LB Hassan Reddick, DT Jonathon Allen, DE/LB TJ Watt, OL Ryan Ramczyk, Safety Budda Baker, RB Alvin Kamara, RB Joe Mixon, WR Cooper Cupp, RB Kareem Hunt, WR Kenny Golladay, Safety Eddie Jackson, LB Zac Cunningham, WR Josh Reynolds, RB Tarick Cohen, etc,etc
All these Players thru the first 3-4 Rounds ..

In Case anyone forgot, Here’s who the Eagles Drafted in 2017
Out of the 8 Players Selected, only Derek Barnett is under Contract for 2021 with the Eagles
3 Players were Released and on other Teams (Jones,Douglas, Hollins)
3 Players are out of Football (Pumphrey, Gibson and Qualls)
1 player future is very uncertain with the Eagles (N Gerry)

1st – DE Derek Barnett
2nd – CB Sidney Jones
3rd – CB Rasoul Douglas
4th – WR Mack Hollins
4th – RB Donnell Pumphrey
5th – WR Shelton Gibson
6th – LB Nathan Gerry
7th – DT Elijah Qualls

New Reports are that once the Eagles hired New Coach Nick Sirianna, Owner Llurie and GM Roseman were prepared to have Carson Wentz back as the Eagles QB ,but that Wentz further balked at returning to the Team making Lurie go thru the roof which he shortly decided afterwards that Wentz had to go and felt betrayed by Wentz and his Management that Coach Pedersen was the real issue with Wentz remaining, So Lurie already let go Pedersen and then had the Organization eat the $33.8 Million in Dead Money ..
Lurie/Roseman had the understanding with Wentz that if Coach Doug P Went, that Wentz would return which is why the Trading on Wentz had to happen and happen fast for Lurie lost all Trust and Respect for Wentz…
How did they get this entire situation so wrong with Wentz…
Howie Roseman is the root cause of Why Wentz no longer wanted to be a member of the Philadelphia Eagles
Its this simple …

eagles release Jackson saving $5M of cap space- getting under the cap will be simple, gotta rip the band-aid off a couple of older guys- piece of cake once you acknowledge that you aren’t going for broke- any fan panic or whining about the cap was simply fans being dramatic.

Packers released 2 starters… this is a reset year for a lot of teams…. the weird QB musical chairs, the reduced salary cap due to Covid I see a changing NFL. Dan Orlivsky says the QB position is changed where the QB used to have to make players around him better it’s now a league where the QB is actually the one being made better by those around him…. dunno but with so many teams unsettled at QB and so many QBs not happy with their teams .
I hope the eagles basically give the ball to hurts and let him sink or swim

The fraudman and media narrative that the eagles roster is old is false. Eagles average age is 25.7 the youngest in the division. This is according to football reference. In a weird twist you think of teams like the cardinals as young up and comers yet they are a year and 5 months older than the eagles…
I believe the eagles do get considerably younger BUT don’t look for wholesale changes on the OL or DL. A core value and their identity is strength upfront. Eagles will restructure Kelce one more time to reduce cap hit this year and give him an extra year at a good price then he walks off to the sunset…LJ has huge cap numbers … OL comes back as a strength, eagles contend for the division.

They will be much younger in 2031 as many 30 + Players will be gone
JP,D-Jax,A Jeffrey,Z Ertz, M Jackson,V Curry,
Kelce to retire, McLeod probably released
All Players over 30 + will be replaced with 22-24 Year Olds
But in 2019 and2020 the Eagles featured one the NFL’s oldest Starting lineups

Teams been 22-25-1 during this span

Everyone’s Franchise QB finished with a
35-32-1 Record in 5 Seasons with 0 Playoff Wins
Take the 11-2 Record from a great 2017 Season and he was. 24-30-1 , his other 4 Seasons , hardly a Franchise QB by any stretch, but Philly Fans/Media always over-rates their own players, always have and always will
To get a 3rd and 2nd which could convey LT to a 1st Round for an average, overpaid coddled Player and save some $70 Million from the remainder of his Contract was a pretty good deal considering the circumstances

February 20, 2021 10:02 am

Why would you take a stretch away? That makes zero sense? Take away his 3-8 record this year if you want to take something away? Then it’s 32-24-1. Of course that doesn’t fit your negative toxic nature. Or take away his rookie record…why would you arbitrarily pick games to take away? On,y reason to be a toxic cunt

It’s fair to say sixers need to show it in the playoffs(they were in eastern conference finals a couple years ago) but just toxic troll shit to devalue a really good game …you can only play who is on the schedule. Remember you saying the eagles got lucky to get thru the playoffs? Or Halliday no hitter and perfect game we’re against lesser teams? Or the phils were lucky they got to play the rays?

Owner Lurie & Roseman spend 2 + Weeks to Interview Potential HC Candidates with the biggest emphasis on how to fix QB Carson Wentz as the Focus of their Coaching Search,
Then 3 Weeks later, they decide to Trade him when there’s almost No Market for him,
Did they not have a sit down with Wentz after the Season to discuss the Future after this terrible Season for the Entire Organization?
What kind of thought process and planning is this?
It’s like both Lurie/Roseman shoot from the hip in almost every major decision they make and then put out media nuggets to a chosen few reporters to spread mor did-information
These Clowns should have worked with the Trump Organization!!
The Franchise has become a Joke since the Super Bowl, maybe Fans are satisfied and would take anything to get a SB Trophy,
Meanwhile the Franchise has become so dysfunctional and goodPlayers want out and there is going to be very few players attracted to coming to the Eagles for a while outside of receiving a Paycheck
If they took a few steps of turning over the Roster over the last 2 Off-seasons, then the current rebuild/transition would not be as long and painful as it will be for them over these next 2 Years..
Poor Planning and Roster Management once again by the Eagles
Anyone who believed that the SB Window was still open after the 2019 Season is/was foolish in terms of knowing the standing of the Eagles versus their NFL competition and just because they won the shitty NFC with 9-7, 9-7 Records in 2018 and 2019 was Fool’s Gold..

Since the fraud has no clue about sports let’s refer to the “no chance “ to win in 18&19…. anyone who has sprained an ankle, won a tough game, lost a tough game, watched a tough game knows that the SB champ ALWAYS comes down to who is playing the best at the right time. Only a dummy thinks “making the playoffs “ is worthless…. teams catch fire at the right time snd bang your win a SB…. but again you don’t care about winning so ….

February 20, 2021 2:26 pm

Super bowl is littered with teams that won, and some that lost that were cold at some point in the season, even into December then got some breaks, played great and got to the SB… athletes try to compete they try to win…they don’t look to the draft or free agents…they line up and try to win. Fraudman doesn’t know what competition is… doesn’t think teams should try, thinks the best team on paper should just mark down a win… dude doesn’t even understand sports… he would assume you check off wins/losses based on perceived rosters… what a toxic cunt

Eagles aren’t going to sniff the SB in the next 2 Years, they are in transition per Owner Lurie and Howie which means a “re-build”
If Hurts doesn’t work out next Seadon, they’ll have a Top 5 Pick on 2022 Draft and likely the Colts 1st Rounder as well and then they’ll go after one of QB Prospects in the 2022

Once again your desire to spew toxicity have clouded any semblance of analysis. The Raptors sent a double at Embiid every time he touched the ball. He actually did a very nice job getting the ball to the open man and last night wide open 3’s were missed- this is the way the NBA operates- 25 pts and 17 rebounds would of course get a negative post from the man who would win a million dollars and bitch about the taxes.
Embiid is a career 53% shooter from 2 pt range- Olajuwon is a 51% shooter from 2, Bill Russell 44%, Wilt 54%, — So in context those guys who are the greatest to play the game have had a 6-20 night-

Funny Olajuwon won his first championship at 30 and Wilt won his at 31 …Ben is 24 and Embiid is 26. I know facts don’t fit well with your negative narrative as usual.
Hakeem lost in the finals in his rookie year THEN 5 of the next 7 years eithe DID NOT make the playoffs or lost in round ONE. So once again your argument is foolish. The sixers (your hometown team) have two good players. They aren’t perfect but they are good players. The raptors have a nice team, had a good game plan and the nba is a “make or break league”… make your 3 pointers and you can win. Embiid “bad game was 25 and 17….
but again the fact that Hakeem and Wilt didn’t win till their 30’s is totally lost on the “the led team to championships and are winners”… matter of fact Wilt is anything but an ultimate winner.

Latest Reports have the Eagles flat out Releasing Zach Ertz, Jason Kelce and Marquise Goodwin as the Eagles have Tried to Trade any/all of them but there is such a soft Trade Market this Year for aging Veterans around the NFL due to the Salary Cap situations that most NFL Teams find themselves in.. Teams will wait until Players are Released first and then approach them once Free-Agency comes next Month as they won’t have to pay their current Contract Salary amount and would not have to give up any Draft Capital in return..
The Eagles will do right by their long-term players and release them sooner than later in this Process so that these Players can attempt to Sign on with another Team early in the Free-Agency Period as the Eagles will not be participating much in this years Free-Agency Market due to no $$$ and there will be a lot of Teams sitting on the sidelines so by April/May and after the Draft, there will be many Talented Players who still l have some gas in the tanks waiting to get quality Offers from Teams around the NFL …
When you look at the Eagles Situation, Why would long-term standing Players like F Cox, B Graham, LJ, Brooks, Kelce, McLeod want to be a part of the couple year Rebuild Process in Philadelphia ?
Most of these aging, highly-paid Players that are not going to be playing Football in 2-3 Seasons from now when the Eagles have built up their Roster enough in order to be able Compete for a Playoff Run but this is at least 2 Off-Seasons/Drafts away..

J Kelce go to the KC Chiefs to Play with his Brother and they could use a Center too.. (Colts have an All-Pro Center in Ryan Kelly and would have zero Interest or need with Kelce as Ive seen You-Tubers Blogs state..

Z Ertz could go out West to LA/Arizona or to the Packers and play with Aaron Rodgers or Indy and play with the Colts/Wentz..

Best Bet for Eagles this Season is to Draft the Best Positional Players this Draft and avoid Selecting a QB
anywhere High in this Draft, Play Hurts for the entire 2021 Season and see what you got and if he fails to perform as a Legitimate NFL QB Starter, then their Record will reflect this in 2021 and they will likely end up in with a Top 5 Draft Pick in 2022 Draft with a lot more Cap Space and the Colts potential 1st Round Pick for some Draft Capital to be able to move up and upgrade the QB Position with a Top QB Prospect in 2022
if they feel that Hurts is not the Guy, but they have to give the chance and Drafting a QB Early this 2021 Draft would be another mistake by Howie and the Eagles Organization …
Justin Fields, Trey Lance, Mac Jones and Kyle Trask are no better than what Hurts is right now, and a couple of these guys will nothing more than Back-Up QB’s at the NFL Level so why bother Drafting them at #6 and take a Stud Positional Player who can help you from Day 1 at the OL,Receiver, CB, DE Position
(This Draft is strong along the OL, WR, RB, LB & DB Positions, Not so much at the QB, TE,DE,DT Positions)

Give Hurts every opportunity to have success in 2021 just like they gave Wentz, and even if the Team WIns 4-5 Games.. Now If Hurts is the Guy and Plays well then keep adding Talent Next Year’s Draft and at least the Eagles can be players in Free-Agency in 2022 and maybe add a Player a Two but they cannot add much at all this 2021 Free-Agency period as they simply don’t have to Cap Space to add much

You’ve been the exact same bowl of positive energy regardless of success or failure. It’s not realism to criticize a team or a player after/during successful runs yet you do it. Embiid scores 50 you criticize, he scores 25 you criticize, teams win championships a d you criticize… you magically wipe out a period of great games a player has to emphasize other games. You attribute success to the other teams incompetence never skill of the home team. It’s a joke.. jealousy, insecurity etc.

Interesting things you can look at
Got to have Good Coaching, An OL and even a strong Running Game to help a Young QB
(Ravens,Rams, 49ers, Cowboys with Zeke in earlier Days and even Wentz in 2017 where the Eagles had a Top Rushing attack from a collection on RB’s, R Wilson and Big Ben in his early days all had solid rushing attacks)
But to expect Young QB’s to go back and sling the ball 40 + Times a game consistently doesn’t seem to pay off too well..

It also appears when Trading up to go get that QB hasn’t worked out real well either

Eagles should surround Hurts in 2021 with a good OL, solid Rushing attack and another Playmaker on the outside and build the Yeam from there , I hope they stay away from any of this Years QB’s with their Top Pick
If not Trevor Lawrence the next 4-5 Prospects wouldn’t even be rated as high as they are
In such a QB driven League
As we saw in the Super Bowl, if the Chiefs keep relying on Mahomes to throw 40 + times in a game they will shorten his career by a few years even as talented as he is..
I do think ZachWilson has potential but he has some ? about his maturity,entitlement and leadership and I am on the fence about him
But the others in Fields,Lance,Jones have a lot to work on before being considered any type of “Franchise Type QB” anytime soon..
This 2021 Draft is as much as a crap shoot as we’ve seen in many years in terms of disrupted seasons, workouts, level of competition and go with the most solid Players as possible
In terms of Talent, Receiving Top College Coaching and their Work ethic and Desire to be great NFL Players .
After the top 100 Prospects or so, who knows what’s out there, and I would be real careful on Players who opted out unless you really know what they’ve been doing and with whom over the last Year
in my opinion

February 23, 2021 4:15 pm

Unfortunately this isn’t really accurate… KC threw the ball roughly 40 times a game in the last two years during the playoffs..and never ran more than 25 . in 5 out of 6 of this games they had the lead at halftime, took the air out of the ball and ran it. Same thing with Tampa’s run to the SB…. they have no issue throwing 40 times… in nfc champ they ran it 22 times from mid 3 to the end of game…
Further proof that the run first narrative is STUPID is that in Buffalo 2 playoff wins they threw like 37 times a game and ran less than 20. In the AFC championship game they were down by 9 at half and threw it 48 times. It is insane that people don’t understand the run pass thing … it’s kinda like dummies on here wanted to dump Kelce cuz they wanted a fat 300 pound center… dummies.
Build around Hurts…. beef up line and skill guys… throw the hell out of the ball to get the lead and then tell the OL to win the game… it’s the nfl 2021, not the nfl 1972.

When did the rushes happen? Pay attention… you said you can’t throw 40 .. they almost all do… then they get a lead and run… go through the game log… it’s an easy exercise… the funny thing is the Tampa bay bucs had ELEVEN KNEEL DOWNS in the playoffs which account for more than 10% of their TOTAL RUNNING plays.., you can’t make this up also 50% of their runs have occurred in the fourth quarter with a lead…

2018 NFC champ game + SB Rams thru it 82 times and ran it 36 times
Running the ball is GREAT– i’m a firm believer in running the ball but in the nfl you have to have a lead. All the teams that lead the league in running year after year if you examine their run game you will find:
1. in games they lose they pass a bunch more– why? CUZ THEY ARE LOSING and have to catch up.
2. the bulk of their runs are after halftime when they are leading
a blanket statement of ‘run the ball more’ is not looking at the analytics of nfl running games- it ignores it — again this isn’t 1973– in the old days the adage was ‘set up the pass with the run’– in those days — run 8 straight and play action…. now its pass, pass, run, pass, run, pass, play action… its just different-
its ok fraudman you can change with the times– you don’t have to wear your hair in your 1970’s style… catch up to the game you profess to love

If you cannot run the ball…it does not matter what era you’re in. It comes down to taking the pounding off your QB and letting that OL control that game & clock.

The Eagles won it all, and we had the best running attack I have seen since I have been watching the Birds. (27 years old).

Opens up everything..Passing, Play Action, gets the defense tired. Since that SB our rushing attack has been a shell of its self.

Miles Sanders is gifted…has a lot of 70 yard TDs, but we need another back to be a bruiser. I miss having that Blount type of back.

With a QB like Hurts, if you can run the ball we will be very dangerous. People rave about Lamar Jackson, and rightfully so….. but give me Jalens arm talent over his any day. He can make every single throw.

17 eagles ran 473 pass 564 for a 42% run rate– 29 runs per game
18 eagles ran 398, pass 599 for a 40% run rate- – 25 runs per game
19 eagles ran 454 , pass 613 for a 43% run rate- 28 runs per game
20 eagles ran 403, pas 698 for a 40% run rate – 25 runs per game

You see that their run rate/runs per game are similar in all years- remembering in 17 they were in the ahead at halftime 12 times. NUMBERS BARE IT OUT
In 19 they actually ran the ball MORE–
its a lazy and stupid narrative
yes you have to run the ball effectively- you have to nail down the wins and its the best way to shorten the game, keep the ball from the other team.

The putrid 2020 eagles averaged 5 yards per rushing attempt and gained 2027 yards
The awesome 17 eagles averaged 4.5 yards per rushing attempt and gained 2115 yards
All this and the 17 eagles played most games with the lead and the 20 eagles played from behind.
Problem is a fan sees a team nailing down a win with a 12 play drive, 10 of them runs to ice a game and the common refrain is “they need to run more” but it is situational. Every coach at every level would love to snap the ball and have the QB turn around and hand to Henry 30 times a game. Problem there is only one of him and if he gets hurt you certainly don’t have another one.

Last 4 SB champs rushing attack:
TB, leading rusher Jones 14 carries per game team average 23 carries per game
KC, leading rusher Williams 10 carries per game team average 23 carries per game
NE, leading rusher Michel 16 carries per game team average 29 carries per game
Eagles, leading rusher Blount 10 carries per game team average 29 carries per game

Shitty 2020 eagles: sanders 14 rushes per game, team average 25 rushes per game….2020 eagles gained 500 more rushing yards than Tampa! 400 more yard than the 19 chiefs, 10 yards fewer than the 18 patriots,,

The name of the game is WHEN you run! The nfl is so specific with game clock etc…for example just in the last few years has it become common for teams winning the toss to defer to try to get the last possession of first half and first of second half. The team wants a lead halfway thru the third and then play keep away…I thought you guys paid attention

Eagles 2021 OL

Jumbo Package as the Base Offensive Package which changes the NFL
From L to R
Blocking TE Maliata, LT A Dillard, LG J Driscoll, Center I Seumalo, RG Brooks, RT L Johnson
with 2 RB’s (Sanders and Harris) 1 QB – Hurts and 1 Pass Catching TE – Goedart and 1 WR (Reagor/Fulgham/Watkins all Rotate)
Some formations will have Mailata coming off the Field and a 2nd WR comes on the Field
Some Formations will only have 1 RB having a 3rd WR on the Field..
This Power Formation and Play Calling will force Defenses to have stout LB Players who are strong versus the Run for most Teams Secondaries are not strong in Run Defense and many Teams in the NFL don’t even have great Run Defenders at the LB Corp on their Rosters as they been replaced by smaller, speedy Pass Coverage LB’s..

The “Sirianna Sunami” will be the Name of these new looking Offense and then copied around the NFL in 2 Years time after the Eagles Success of dominating the LOS, TOP and Checw up Yards and Clock
The Key is Finishing with TD’s once in the Red Zone and here is where Jalen Hurts comes in as that Extra Dual Threat … I have the Patent already Approved for “SS” Name with all Shirts, Hoodies, Caps Merchandise Sales

More Transition for the Eagles ,
Since the Eagles Offense is going to a more Power Rushing Attack, they will convert Greg Ward as the 3rd String QB since they have no Salary Cap Space and won’t need 6 WR’s so Greg Ward goes to Gadget Player, Emergency QB to save a Roster Spot and $$$.. Greg Ward was a very good College QB at the U of Houston for those who forgot …

“A” for effort on that one Paul. unfortunately even with ball control you won’t be able to outscore high powered offenses which are centered on the pass happy nfl rules. You would be able to stay in some games but teams would essentially have to make one stop and the game is over as you will never be able to catch up. It is however an interesting package if you get a lead. It would end up looking like the 1960 Bears vs the 1960 Packers– both teams in a big group in the middle of the field chewing up the turf down the middle.
I thought SF offense of a couple years ago was going to be a trend– big fast guys on the perimeter beating up the defenses smaller perimeter players. But as usual the nfl catches up- the 49ers went 6-10 this year- a few injuries and the best laid plans come crashing down.

Who’s High Scoring in the NFC East outside the Cowboys? Giants,Washington are Offensively challenged as are the Lions,Bears,Seahawks,49ers, Panthers,
who knows how the Saints Offense looks post Drew Brees,

The TB Bucs, Arizona,Packers & Cowboys look to be the High Scoring Teams in the NFC , then everyone else ?

on a side note to the dummies that think run, run , run and why don’t the eagles run more– that SF team that people love to point to as a run happy team had fewer than 2 attempts more than the eagles in 2020 and actually gained fewer yards– but in 19 when they had the lead they had 100 more carries than in 20– running games are great when you have the lead!

However his points are 100% accurate! He has astute knowledge of the game. Sees how the game has evolved…BtW did you know for being the best back in history, who played in a run first league he averaged only 20 runs per game? This from the most dominant, punishing back of all time! Funny how guys want a big punishing bell cow in 2021… must be the same dummies that wanted Kelce out of here because he wasn’t the ideal center for 3 yards and a cloud of dust…. these dummies would argue that the sky is t blue

Do Note that Games were a lot shoter time wise as the Clock was not stopped as often
Teams in the 1960’s averaged 50-55 Plays a Game where now they are running 65-70 PLays a Game for the more up-tempo pace of the game as well as all the clock stoppages and TV Time-outs over a the course of a 60 Minute NFL Game which exceed
3 + Hours of real time, Games were 2:15 Minutes back when Jim Brown was playing,
Teams ran it more and there were not as many total plays in a Game as today’s NFL has

Reports from NovaCare is that Howie and Eagles are discussing and close to Trading Players Derek Barnett, Jason Kelce & Darius Slay to various Teams for Mid to Late Round Draft Picks in 2021/2022 Draft which would free up approx $17-$18 Million off their Cap Space

Javon Hargrave is reportedly not very happy about being asked to re-structure his Deal that he just signed last year and may request a Trade per Sources

The Year of Discontent is Loud and Clear all around the NFL and especially in Philly where some Veterans don’t want to hang around Playing for a newbie Coaching Staff and a Rebuilding Season or Two

Reports have the Following

DE Barnett to the Tennessee Titans for a 2021 3rd Round Pick

Center Jason Kelce to the KC Chiefs for a 2021 6th Round Pick (he wants to Play with Brother if he’s going to Play at all)

CB Slay and a Eagles 2021 6th Round Draft Pick to the Jaguars for their 2021 4th Round and 2022 6th Round Pick Draft Pick

February 24, 2021 2:04 pm

The only one of those is Kelce possible who will sign an extension (that’s how it’s done) with KC. He and his brother finish together with a SB win.

BGN has a short film of about 10 throws Hurts made last year. Most in the run, different launch points etc. it’s an incredibly small sample but he makes those Wilson, Mahones type throws. I know evaluation is much more in depth than that but dammit solidify the line (look at Wilson and Mahones with bad lines) get him another target and let him ball out… I think he’s a good ol fashioned baller. Don’t overthink it… trade back and take the TE then get 2 defensive playmakers ….
Paul what would the eagles get in a trade back 6 to say 10?

I could see Kelce signing a 2 Year Extension with the Chiefs, I don’t believe he wants to go thru a Re-Build with Philly but with the potential of Brooks/LJ returning with Coach Stout back, he may want to make 1 more run at it and not finish his Eagles Career with the bad 2020 Season taste in his mouth..

I would say the Eagles Trading Back 3-4 Spots would net the Eagles a 3rd Round Pick which is not a bad way to go (Go from 6 to 9 and gain the #75th Overall Pick which would add another Quality Prospect to the Roster in my opinion and especially since the Eagles have No 4th Round Pick this Year which they traded to the Browns for Genard Avery a couple years back)

The Eagles can go in a dozen directions with this #6th Pick and I hope they avoid the temptation for Selecting at QB which would put the QB Position in flux again next Season which is not good for anyone
Make Hurts the QB1 for 2021 and see what he has, he has all the Intangibles, Leadership Skills and Maturity and just needs Reps and some Playmakers on the Outside and a Good OL in front of him which the Eagles should provide with the Return of Brooks/LJ and possible Kelce and the additions of younf OL in Herbig,Mailata,Driscoll and whatever Dillard can provide and would very likely be the strength of the Team and give them a fighters chance to be competitive in 2021
If they Draft a QB at #6 or worse, move up to get a QB and Trade Assets to get a QB Prospect, I believe this would be a huge mistake and only prolong the re-build and mess up the Jalen Hurts potential as the QB1
They Need Players all up and down this Roster and especially on Defense
