Day 2 Setback-Eagles pass on starters, add to depth chart

TALLAHASSEE, FL – SEPTEMBER 08: Florida State Seminoles defensive back Asante Samuel Jr. (26) checks with his coaches during the game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Samford Bulldogs at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Florida on September 8th, 2018. (Photo by Logan Stanford/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images)

First impressions, feelings of joy, that excitement can quickly fade over time.  In the case of the Philadelphia Eagles, it took a mere 24 hours for that feeling to kick in.  I’m not ok as an Eagles Fan with what went down on the second day of the NFL draft.  This was a full Howie show, the live footage of an Eagles top scout recognizing the cornerback from UCF was a named he begged the Eagles to select.  Why would their be a fist bump or high five, for Howie sticking to his board for a rotational defensive tackle and a 6th round pick from the Carolina Panthers?  For a second consecutive draft, the Eagles ignored the present needs of the team, the staring cornerback positions were not addressed.   Howie stuck to his board, a sacred value chart of numbers that he adores and one which has final say.

What message does that send to the starters on the roster and the team as a whole?  Imagine how a starting cornerback trio of Darius Slay, Asante Samuel Jr and Aaron Robinson would look with Anthony Harris and McCleod/K’von Wallace at safety.  The Eagles secondary would have been transformed and Howie could have done anything he wanted rounds 4-7, he would be talk of the turn, for all the ‘right’ reasons.  Instead, the Eagles added depth for the future and did so at two position groups the Eagles allocate 20.9% of their 182.5-million-dollar salary cap towards.

Is Howie making good business decisions?   I’m putting Howie supporters on the defensive stand since he felt like ignoring the starting secondary was the right call.

OH THE HORROR

Eagles selected Louisiana Tech DT Milton Williams with the No. 73 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Williams (6’4/278) was a fairly unheralded two-star recruit who was basically invisible with a national ranking of 2,651th from the 2017 high school class, accepting his lone FBS scholarship offer to Louisiana Tech. A converted basketball player, Williams worked diligently at putting weight onto his lean, muscular frame until he got a shot to play in 2019, posting 59 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 35 pressures and 36 stops in 760 snaps. His play really elevated over the last half of 2020, as he created 17 pressures, 17 stops and 3.5 sacks in his last five games. His torrid closing stretch led to Williams earning an elite 90.8 overall PFF defensive grade and vaulting the rocked up lineman into draft consideration. If his production weren’t enough to pique your interest, he ran a blazing 4.63 second 40-yard dash, posted an absurd 38 ½” vertical and ripped off 34 bench press reps at his pro day workout while weighing in at 284 pounds. Williams has the potential to evolve into a scary three tech similar to former KC Chiefs second-rounder Turk McBride. He’ll start out in a sub-package role behind Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave.

Jeff what analysis have you done and what games have you watched that makes you want Asante? Is it just because of his daddy or because you evaluated him? Lemme guess the former?

Here’s a pro evaluators evaluation.

Chargers selected Florida State CB Asante Samuel Jr. with the No. 47 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Samuel (5’10/184) is yet another CB in this class with some NFL pedigree, as his father was a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champ. A short, scrappy cornerback, Samuel is a bit of a loose cannon whose game revolves around being aggressive towards the ball in the air. Samuel has some issues dealing with strength from bigger WRs, though he does try commendably to play bigger than he is, and can be susceptible to being thrown off-balance as result of some sloppy footwork. Samuel is best playing off-coverage, either man or zone, and being allowed to trigger on what is in front of him (4.09s short-shuttle), rather than try to fight and run with a WR at the line of scrimmage. Moving him to the slot full-time could help quell the issue of dealing with bigger, stronger receivers, too. Samuel has some glimpses of Donte Jackson to his skillset, and should immediately be deployed as a rotational corner in nickel packages for Los Angeles

OH THE HORROR. SO MUCH PAIN. SHEEP SAY FIRE HOWIE

Eagles selected Alabama OL Landon Dickerson with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Dickerson (6’6/326), transferred from Florida State, where he’d become the first true freshman offensive lineman to start a home opener in more than 30 years. Dickerson went on to win the Rimington Trophy (nation’s best center) while being named a first-team All-American in 2020. But his December ACL tear in the SEC title game was his fourth season-ending injury in five collegiate seasons. Dickerson has a wide, rangy frame for the interior, a physical force of a pivot with a cruise ship anchor. In 871 pass-blocking snaps over the last three seasons, he allowed only one sack and eight hurries. Dickerson is an animal in the run-game, a phone booth goliath that gets lower than you expect, with legs churn through the echo of the whistle. An exciting interior prospect for gap/power teams with legitimate three-position starting versatility, Dickerson’s biggest questions marks are his medicals and a lack of elite athleticism. As a glass-chewing, tough-as-nails center with a bully streak hailing from the SEC, he gives serious Frank Ragnow vibes. Dickerson is “on schedule” in his rehab and has been cleared to resume workouts. The Eagles are hoping to have him for Week 1.

I see Samuel Jr as aSlot CB in the NFL and have states so all Spring, He can be a good one too but you don’t Draft Slot CB’s in the 2nd Round as they are a dime a dozen and can be found in the Mid-late Rounds

DT Williams is an athletic freak who will generate a pass rush from the Interior which the Eagles can really use,
Dana Brugler of CBS Sports, who’s a sharp Draft Analyst ranked Williams as the 4th Rated DT in this Class
I liken Williams style and size to an Ed Oliver type of the Buffalo Bills, quick,explosive and can make some plays on the interior
Oliver was a late 1st or early 2nd Rounder of the Bills a couple of Drafts ago
I like this Pick .. but it will take a year or two to develop and will get valuable Snaps in 2021
Behind Cox,Hargrove and Ridgeway as a Interior Pass Rusher on obvious passing downs

I give zero shits about Howie roseman. But if ur gonna cry fire Howie on draft day it better be because you evaluated players on your own and you know he missed on talent. It can’t be because he didn’t pick some corner who pro scouts say has the upside (at best) of a slot corner. It also can’t be because he’s the child of a former eagle.

If you wanna criticize past drafts fine. If you wanna cry because Wentz was trash fine. Cry away on past picks that have shown who they are

But crying cuz he didn’t pick a former players son is pathetic, lazy and ignorant. I’ve seen tweens make better arguments.

I also find it quite comical that according to an unpaid writer on a blog that 3 people read Howie is not a football guy yet same unpaid writer somehow knows more than a professional football gm. Too fucking funny

You should just tweet bro because objective blogging / writing isn’t bringing your uninformed temper tantrums to the table.

All teams add youth and talent on draft day. The hope is we got a star and 3 starters and 4-5 solid contributors

Above you literally try to roast howie for sticking to his / our draft which is the exact same thing every single team in the nfl does. Yet you think this is some special thing only Eagles do. It’s beyond comprehension that an Eagles writer could try to make a point that the team should abandon their hard work and ditch their draft board and just wing it based solely on need and their daddy’s name. I’m blown away at the ignorance of this point. Lmfao so silly

15 year old me certainly thought similar things but then i grew up and educated myself. I’m also smart enough not to say we should’ve drafted x or y person cuz i know a grand total of zero about college prospects nor how to evaluate talent

Paulman Reflects on Draft
Paulman Reflects on Draft
May 1, 2021 9:29 pm

Well the 2021 Draft is Over,
Eagles added some Talent and boy did they add athleticism to the DL with the Williams,Tutu, Jackson Selections
I really like the RB K Gainwell and Safety/LB J Stevens picks.
RB Gainwell can do it all and is very explosive out in space, Good Runner, great pass receiver and can actually block too, he’ll upgrade the RB Room and will push to get onto the field and eventually replace Boston Scott and bring a more athletic Player to the Field.
LB/Safety Stevens reminds me of a poor mans JOK, long, wiry build with a knack of being around the Ball and may just end up being that pass-coverage specialists from the LB Position that the Eagles really needs in order to match up with these Athletic TE’s and Backs out of the Backfield in time

CB McPherson is a quality CB Prospect but I see him more of a Nickel and Slot CB than Playing on the Outside, but that’s ok too for Everyone Team needs 5-6 CB’s in Today’s NFL

Last Selection DE Patrick Johnson is smaller at 6-2 and 240lbs probably best suited in
a 3-4 Scheme as an OLB but he is relentless to the ball and could have a shot as a outside LB/Special Teamer, practice squad player for 2021 as he develops

If OL Dickerson, can stay Healthy which is a big if, then this Draft Class could turn out to be a solid Foundation for the Future as I think DT Milton Williams will surprise some people and get on the field on a rotational basis in 2021

I was disappointed that a True Outside CB wasn’t selected in the 2nd/3rd Rounds and also that a true Safety wasn’t selected at all thought Howie would use more of the later Round Picks in a Package Trade get another Selection in that sweet spot of 60-100
I was also surprised that another Interior OL wasn’t selected in the later Rounds just to develop in case Dickerson ends up injured

No one knows how any of these Players will do as none of us even know what Coach Sirianna’s Offense and Jonathon Gannons Defense will look like scheme/formation wise and what thry will focus on, etc,etc

I do believe they added Talent,Athleticism and Players that love to Play the Game of Football
A few of these Players Drafted were Team Captains on their College Teams so they have High Football IQ, maturity,leadership which seems to be a common theme throughout this first Draft under the new Coaching Staff and second Draft under Andy Wadl..

To Give a Grade on potential is kind of senseless but in terms of working the Board after the First Round, Drafting for Value and the Trades that Howie made pre-Draft and in
I would give Howie and Company a Solid B with the potential to be a B + If Dickerson stays healthy thru his Rookie Contract

There will be a ton on Competition along the DL this summer as all players will be learning new schemes under DC Gannon
They definitely got quicker and more athletic across the DL.. some big name Veterans will need to come to Camp in tip top shape and be ready to compete for these young guys will be bringing it and you can probably say this across the Board with every Position Group so this Summer Camp may be the most exciting one to follow in year with a New Coaching Staff that isn’t going to be tied to some of the older Players like the previous Coaching Staff were … Exciting Times ahead !!
WR Room, RB Room, OL with a lot of Young Guys who played last year aren’t just going to concede playing time to returning Veterans off injury … LB Group has lots of young Players so it will be competition everywhere
CB and Safety Positions are wide open too

Sports happens dumb dumb. I guess to fit your narrative you use actual results to determine if they contend or don’t.

If results dictate who is contending then i guess there is no contending there are just champions.

Cool narrative on Embiid although completely misleading as he was drafted to not play year 1 and had a season ender setback year 2 and of course u include that because you’re a emo cunt hater that hates ur home team. Since those 2 years he plays exactly what you would expect in today’s nba where stars are rested and sit out for longer than needed. According to your dumb logic kawhi and klay or tissue soft too. Aka they’re not ur just Whiney hater.

In fairness to the process people the sixers have the 1 seed and their 2 biggest pieces are their own draft picks a bit like the Warriors a few years back who had several of their big pieces were their own picks.
The nets who have lost 3-4 in a row with their ‘recruits’ all missing time for various in grown toe nails or whatever are still an issue. The Simmons half court game is still an issue.

And they did not contend in 2020! They were swept in round 1. Results matter! They seem to have a chance to contend this year. Paul mans point is correct… multiple tanks for 2 players one a part time MVP candidate, one all world defensive player who won’t take a YMCA jumper. Charging full price for years of a D league roster. Hinkie Stinky was more interested in assets than wins… you can’t play what if because you have no idea what he would do if he stayed in charge… think about this he’s the only GM in the history of sports that the commissioner (who works for the owners) had to step in… that is fucking embarrassing … the sixers are a joke

The process as you are well aware is all about championships. Nothing less. The sixers are playing great there is no denying it. Win a championship and the process is a huge success … until that day we had a professional sports team playing to lose think about that playing season after season to lose. Could you imagine telling your child to go out there and lose? Could you play on a team that loses on purpose?

This ain’t little league t ball. This isn’t play for the love of the game. This is a business and the business model is win a title not have fun and let’s have juice boxes after the game. You slow ?

Also process been over for years. Let it go or are you some psycho that has a kill list of people who gave you wedgies in middle school?

You forgot the orange slices.
No need to call names. That is typically what 8th graders do so grow up. It’s a simple disagreement or as I stated a while back it’s generational. The losing on purpose is a horrible precedent. If they get a title in the next 5 years I will eat my words gladly. American sports are so ingrained with analytics they are becoming unwatchable…. in baseball there have been 4 no hitters so far, most teams have 3-5 guys hitting at the Mendoza line. The constant shifts, using 4-5 pitchers a game, the swing for the fences every at bat… it’s killing it. Basketball has tankers and contenders …. stars sit for no reason because analytics say “we don’t need this game”….at least the league MVP plays every game… Jokic is a throw back

Holding grudges, pouting about what 3 gms ago decided to do and letting that impact this team, these players and this front office is something a emo tween female would do. So grow up, grow a pair and move on ya big dumb emo baby.

Ain’t nobody said hinkie was great ya idiot.

But speaking of hypocrites you routinely roast paulman for playing mmqb and roast him for criticizing Andy, howie, amaro,etc. but here you are year after year after year roasting this Sixers team because of actions of 3 gms ago. Never once did you articulate a plan for Sixers being good enough to get a 1 seeed. So if ya got a mirror take a look son and in it you’ll see a crybaby hypocrite. That’s straight facts

Well I don’t agree… I’ve stated: 1 losing on purpose is horrible (true) 2. Embiid is an incredible part time player (true) and 3. Simmons lack of shooting is an Achilles heal (true) 4. Given their limitations I don’t believe they are not built to win a title (remains to be seen)
I’ve also stated that rivers is a terrific coach, Thybulle and Maxey were great picks . Also the Morey brand combination is looking to win and that’s a pleasant change

Where’s the plan?

THATS NOT A PLAN DUMMY

The facts are nba product is shit because of the how the league is ran. Players have all the control and nba commish office don’t care about FairPlay and competitive balance.

There’s only a few ways to win in nba

1. Catch lightning in a bottle – bucks with gianis and Steph and klay in Holden state and Luka

2. Pray super stars picks your city to build a super team (ie Miami with lebron and bosh. Golden state with kd, nets with kyrie, clippers with George and kawaiii

3. Be a beautiful city so stars just want to come ie LA Miami.

4. Or tank

It ain’t fun but nba don’t care about fans. They allow players like brow force trades to lakers. They allow a bullshit nets trade for harden and they gave up nothing. Then the nba got bull shit buyout rules that allows good players to just walk away free just b4 playoffs and of course they’ll all Wanna go to the best current team (ie blake, Jordan…)

It’s a horribly managed league and it’s a joke.

It’s simple
It’s simple
May 9, 2021 4:29 pm

All that said Philly ain’t Miami or la so stars coming to this ugly city and freezing their dicks off Lightning in a bottle ain’t a plan it’s a prayer which left us no choice but to tank unless ur ok with being ass forever

So hate on the process all ya want but unless u had an alternate plan shuddafuckup

N Maton has been a nice player and find and has played well and doesn’t appear overmatched or the opportunity too big like Kingery/Moniak seem to have …
Phil’s need an Everyday CF & 2 legitimate arms for the back end of the Bullpen
When’s this Bradley die to return ?
Is Dominguez out for the Season?

Trade Bait would be Segura who is a quality MLB Player, Kingery if any interest is out there,

Well I agree with 99% of your post. The nba is a shit league… my hate in the process is hate on the league much more than hate in the sixers. You and I are actually more aligned… you can’t get out of the way of your own whining to see,that.
The sixers took one in the ass to try to compete. You correctly point out there are only a couple ways to do it.. and getting ass fucked with no lube is one of the ways.
If you look historically at everything I’ve ever said about the process it’s due to the nba being shit, Embiid resting every other day…it’s the way of of the shit nba. Your venom is misplaced

Well Paul saying watch out for the knocks is typical… everyone knows there are only a few teams with a chance and the knicks ain’t close.

yes; he along with Thybulle and Shake sat because the #1 seed is locked up and so there is / was nothing to play for so you sit your stars and get them rest and fresh for the playoffs as they do in every sport on gods green earth.

good news is Ben was incredible last night.

so in a nutshell calm down slappy; its sports and its how the game is played

Monday Night (9/27) at Dallas Cowboys
Thursday Night (10/14) at Home vs TB Bucs

That’s it, I remember Paulman stated the NFL would penalize the Eagles this Season with their Schedule and cut a National Game or two for the Eagles tanking that Final Game vs Washington last season
I hate to admit, but that Paulman is alright sometimes.

Sixers played their worst basketball of the year. Embiid is invisible for the first time this year.
