State of the Eagles-Defense

Jodan Hicks

Can the 2016 Philadelphia Eagles defense be dominant?  There have been significant roster changes. A new defensive coordinator that will run a 4-3 based scheme has people excited.

The potential to be a top ten unit in terms of sacks and takeaways is there for the taking with the off-season hire of Jim Schwartz.  The focus for Schwartz is to get pressure on the opposing quarterback and interrupt his pass attempts.  The scheme focuses more on spacing and using player strengths to their advantage.  It’s not necessarily about dialing up the blitzes, but correctly scheming when to send additional pressure.

It’s rather straight forward with Schwartz which is not only refreshing to hear, but it helps to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the defensive line, the linebackers and the secondary.

Howie Roseman stated that free agent upgrades allowed him to part with draft picks in the deal with the Browns.  With that being said, the change from a 3-4 to a 4-3 defense changed “need” areas for position groups.

The success of the defense will likely come down to the current players on the roster.  After parting with a third and fourth round selection in the trade with the Cleveland Browns, the Eagles are limited with remaining draft picks.  With arguably more holes to fill on offense then defense, it’s quite possible that day three of the draft (round 5-7) is when depth is added to the defense.

Defensive Tackle

Fletcher Cox was a dominating force last season and the thoughts of what havoc he may cause under Schwartz has double digit sacks totals as a real possibility.  Bennie Logan doesn’t receive enough credit for his success as an undersized nose tackle. Like Cox, he should also capitalize in the sack department as a pure defensive tackle.  The issue becomes the defensive tackles behind Cox and Logan, the cupboard is thin. The only name recognizable name being Beau Allen.

The Eagles have had success over the years with finding defensive line help that go undrafted, with Hollis Thomas and Cedric Thorton two notable names.  Adam Gotsis out of Georgia Tech is likely to go undrafted due to a knee injury sustained in 2015, but Gotsis is one of those tough/high motor guys that fill out the bottom of the depth chart at the defensive tackle position.

Defensive End

At defensive end, the Eagles resigned Vinnie Curry to a “starters” contract, 2016 should be his coming out party.  It’s been a long wait for Curry, and for the money he received, the Eagles are “banking” on the player that recorded nine sacks in 2014.

Brandon Graham and Connor Barwin will rotate at defensive end after both starting at outside linebacker last season.  Neither player fits the typical defensive end mold that Schwartz looks for, but Schwartz is creative and will find ways to get both players on the field at the same time.  The long term plan for Barwin and Graham is likely to be decided by the end of the 2017 season, when both contracts make it expendable for the Eagles to part ways.

Marcus Smith, any type of contribution out of him would be terrific, but he is merely a rotational player at best with limited expectations talent wise.

The Eagles have looked at a few defensive ends in the fifth round area, which is a round that they drafted Trent Cole in 2005.  Yannick Ngakoue out of Maryland has been on the Eagles radar; has the tools to succeed at the professional level and would be a solid selection in the fifth round.

Cornerback

There is certainly “depth” at the cornerback position, but exactly how talented is the group?  The Eagles replaced Maxwell with McKelvin.  Nolan Carroll was resigned after a respectable showing in 2015.  Eric Rowe went through the rookie learning curve.  Ron Brooks adds a veteran presence as a fourth cornerback.

And then the list of unknowns, almost a full depth chart of rookies with what the Eagles know about these players.  Former Eagles fourth rounder Jaylen Watkins, likely his last chance to earn a spot on the 53 man roster.  There are the two 6th round selections from last season with Shepherd and Evans, plus undrafted free agent Denzel Rice.  The Eagles even dipped into the CFL for cornerback depth, signing Aaron Grymes.

It’s difficult to project the potential starting lineup, but with a total of nine cornerbacks on the roster.  Could the Eagles get away without drafting a cornerback this season, simply gamble on finding out what they already have under a new defensive coordinator?

It’s likely the Eagles will add another cornerback in the draft.  Without the limitations of a specific height and weight per the Chip Kelly guidelines, a larger pool of talent is available if the Eagles identify a prospect they like.

James Bradberry (Samford) in round 5 or Daryl Worley (West Virginia) in round 6 as possible players the Eagles target.

Safety

It’s been a long time since the Eagles had two safeties that were reliable.  The addition of McLeod to play alongside Jenkins finally puts an end to the safety search.

The guys behind the starters in Maragos, Couplin and Reynold are better suited for special team roles.  With having guys like McKelvin and Watkins who have some experience playing safety, and the limited number of draft picks remaining after the trade with Cleveland,  it’s difficult to think the Eagles will use a draft pick on a safety in the upcoming draft.  Jordan Lucas who played at Penn State is likely to go undrafted, but could be a guy the Eagles invite to training camp.

The Eagles don’t have a ton of cap room left, and limited draft picks to fill necessary depth on the defense.  Linebacker and defensive tackle could desperately use veteran additions at low cost one year deals.

Reuniting with two ex-Eagles for depth would make sense.  Former 2008 6th round selection Joe Mays has played all three linebacker positions in his career.  Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins could provide a veteran presence at the defensive tackle position.

The optimism surrounding the 2016 Eagles defense is much higher than the state of the offense.  Finding a defensive sleeper that championship NFL level teams locate late in the draft is exactly what Howie and company need to pull off.

  1. With Graham, Barwin & MSII all moving to DE on the Depth Charts
    the Real Position of Need for this Eagles Defense is OLB…
    Right Now the Eagles will line up Bradham at SAM (Strong Side) Kendricks at WILL (Weakside) and Jordon Hicks at the MIKE Position (Middle)
    The Eagles have Najee Goode to Back-Up Hicks but are awful think at both other OLB Positions with Bryan Braman, Brandon Hepburn, Travis Long, Stephen Means & Deontae Skinner who I liked a lot last Summer Camp

    I believe the Eagles will use that #79 Pick of the Draft in the 3rd Round to Draft an OLB as they made some moves to bolster their OL already in Free-Agency with Brooks, Wisnewski and Barret Jones who was a late pick-up after the Season ended to go with Youngsters like Malcolm Bunch, Brett Boyko, Josh Andrews, Andrew Gardner, Matt Tobin and Alan Barbree that they should be better across the board along their OL

    Some LB’s who should be on the Board at #79 that should be worth checking out for the Eagles…
    By the way, Jim Schwartz just loves his LB’s and likes them long, athletic, physical and fast

    Jaylon Smith – Notre Dame (6-2 225lbs) Was Just a Superman last Year until his Injury, most likely will miss the entire 2016 but would have been a Top #10 Pick if Healthy.. Can You Draft him now and wait until 2017 for him to get on the Field which is hard to do with limited Draft Picks to begin with.
    Long Range, could be a Great Pick

    Kyle Fackrell – Utah State (6-5 245lbs) – Smart, versatile, Has Size and good all-Around Athleticism but not what you would call Explosive..

    Jordan Jenkins – Georgia (6-3 259lbs) – Athletic, Versatile, Long-armed and very good droping back in Pass Coverages… a Real Sleeper in my book as his fellow LB Teammate at Georgia, Leonard Floyd, gets most of the Press because of his Sacks, but I think Jordan Jenkins is the better Pro Prospect and a 3 Down LB that would fit Schwartz Schemes very well …

    Yannick Nagkoue – Maryland (6-2 252lbs) – Athletic, a little raw and stiff in his Drop Backs and in Pass-Coverage .. Maybe more of a Inside LB at the NFL Level, Very strong,explosive at the Point of Attack.. Not sure how instinctive he is when out in space

    BJ Goodson – Clemson (6-1 245lbs) – A real thumper who plays ILB, lacks great Size, but has Speed, Athleticism, Plays Physical & Tough

  2. Eagles Currently have 3 DT’s listed on their Roster
    Fletcher Cox, Bennie Logan and Beau Allen
    I expect them to move both Talyor Hart (6-6 285lbs) and Travis Raciti (6-4 292lbs) to inside to play DT giving them 5 to Start OTA’s

    The Key to the 2016 Eagles Defense is how Well their DE’s Play
    Vinny Curry, Connor Barwin, Brandon Graham and Marcus Smith II must all play at the High Level and earn their Pay… If things are going well all 4 Players should rotate in and out to keep everyone Fresh through0out a Game and Season…
    The Eagles have some $25 Million Dollars tied between these 4 Player and they need to get 7-10 Sacks Each or around 40 as a Group

    Moving Forward, the Eagles Need to Address their Front 7 at OLB, DE and add to the DT Depth, maybe some of the Young Players will step up and surprise in Camp like a DL Travis Raciti, LB Travis Long LB Dontae Skinner but the Eagles definitely need to add to the Talent Level & Depth to their Front 7

  3. Appreciate that summary Pman.

    Don’t sleep on Marcus smith just yet!! He never truely got his chance under Chip and company. He was behind guys like graham and barwin and was not gonna out duel some of the veterans..especially when we all knew he was raw when we drafted him.

    He was Howies guy Right? Expect him to get his shot. He’s added on muscle and has improved. I watched the tape on the meaningless Giants game and he was getting pressure.

    Another eagle to look out for under the new 4-3 who could flourish is Bryan Braman who has been out best special teams ace past few seasons. Kid is physcotic, physical and wants to kill everything.

    Big time highlight was when his helmet felL off and he kept running and made the tackle. Wouldn’t be surprised if he balled out.

    • CT, I agree with you on MSII, I think he will show that he can get after the QB and be productive. He was completely lost in the linebacker role. Watching MSII at Louisville, he was able to play DE, watching the last game against the Giants, he showed that he could get off the edge. MSII is my defensive surprise player for 2016. OG Malcom Bunche is my surprise offensive player.

  4. CT, Ray diddy and gcobb in csnphilly saying Bradford’s career has been a series of excuses

  5. I’m surprised how locked in the media has been with Wentz and how little Goff is mentioned. From multiple sources it has been stated that Rams prefer Goff, but I’m not convinced until it’s been released by the Rams or when the first selection of the draft has been made.

    Is anyone concerned?

    • I’m not its wentz. Howie pretty much straight up said I know who the Rams are picking. He also met with wentz 5+ times. It’s wentz… If it wasn’t I think Howie would’ve used different words… Also think wentz is a tougher sell in LA the Cali kid they all know. Also I think wentz has all the tools but legit needs a year to learn the offense unlike goff…

  6. Why is Peter’s on this team they are clearly trying to rebuild send him off to Seattle for two 3’s and a 4th

  7. The Washington Post reports the Redskins have made an offer to free agent CB Josh Norman.
    ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Norman is fielding five-year deals worth between $14-$15 million annually. With an estimated $11.6 million in cap space, the Redskins would have to get slightly creative with the structure of the deal or do some mild cap gymnastics to fit that size contract under the salary limit, but the cap is not a real concern. Norman is meeting with the Redskins on Friday. The 49ers are thought to be the other team seriously involved in negotiations.
    Related: 49ers, Redskins

    Brutal. No star d player going to San Fran

  8. HAC everything I mention about Sam is facts
    And reality.

    Mark my words. He will be one of those quarterbacks who are late bloomers. Similar to what rich Gannon and Drew Bree’s did etc.

    Wait till he gets his true shot. I pray to god he stays and mentors the young guy along with chase. He will play lights out this year whether it’s in Philly, ny or Denver. It’s all about getting confidence in that knee.

    Mark my words. U don’t gotta believe it. U can think it’s a joke all u want.

    He will have multiple pro bowl appearances in the future and will have a very bright ending to his career in his 30s.

    Watch. Some of u think it’s impossible for a 28 year old to improve who had been plagued by injuries and being on a shitty team with no supporting cast whatsoever Ina tough division.

    • “Wait till he gets his true shot”. CT, you sound like Linus putting his hope, dreams and faith in the appearance of the great pumpkin. Bradford has had 6 years in the league. He has had true shots, he just has not capitalized on them. How long are you going to wait for Sam to get in the perfect situation. The perfect O line, stud wr’s, a great running back, a top 5 defense, a great coaching staff, top flight special teams. When does Bradford make his true shot…his true shot? # responsibility and leadership through performance!

      • When he isn’t on a shitty team. I’m not saying all time great. I’m saying a TEAM. IF u wanna call that rams squad he was on a team then go ahead.

        Wanna kno what’s funny? All this talk about carson wentz and jared goff, watch Paxton Lynch be the best QB in the draft. LOL..no wouldn’t that be a fairy tell ending for philly? I can see it now.

        With the #2 pick in the nfl draft, the philadelphia eagles select jalen Ramsey.

        All this qb talk is a smokescreen. Lmao

    • Agreed CT. I have a feeling that will be the case if he stays healthy

  9. I believe eagles should go Paul Perkins, rb ucla round 3.

    • Jeff, I like Paul Perkins, but he may be available in the 5th. Besides, there are a myriad of quality RB’s coming out next year. A WR I want next year is Quincy Adeboyejo. Every hole will not be filled this year, so I am already looking at 2017 prospects.

      • I agree EHL,
        With the limited amount of Picks the Eagles have, they really need to sure up 3-4 Positions with Young Talent .. An OLB, DT,OT & CB
        They may have to sign a Veteran RB forDepth or get 1-2 From the Undrafted Lost to help fill out the RB Corp’s which likely be by committee for 2016..

  10. Great QBs make shitty teams into good teams or good teams into very good teams….good luck ct/kb

    • Great qbs have a great supporting cast..cannot name me 1 great qb who took a team to a superbowl and won without a supporting cast. Period.

  11. That’s why the Eagles should trade Peters,sproles and Graham get what you can for them…now instead of letting them for for nothing your not winning the bowl this yr so why keep them Bradford also..

  12. Silly chatter about rebuild. Predictable and pathetic.

    This is not the NBA. You dont tank!!

    Peters finishes out as an eagle and in general the eagles go into 2016/17 with a chance to compete. Sam gets a chance to shine and im calling out anyone on here who roots against this team.

  13. On a Side Note and some NBA News
    Washington Wizards sign Coach Scottie Brooks to a 5 Year – $35 Million Deal
    I am predicting that Kevin Durant will follow Him to the Wizards .. Durant’s Mom’s Family is from the DC area and Brooks Coached Durant during his best Years with Oklahoma City …

    • I wouldn’t mind adding Cullen jenkins for d Line depth, he was fine here before and really does a good of rushing the passed from inside, creates nice rotation

  14. Jenkins wtf isn’t he like 50

    • Depth signing gloomy Jesus everybody can’t be 20

      • This is a Real Deep DT Class this Draft and Decent, rotational ones can be had in the 5th Rounds or Later…

        DT Adolphous Washington – Ohio State (6-3 305lbs – 4th/5th Rounder)
        DT DJ Reader – Clemson (6-3 327lbs – 4th/5th Rounder (Character Red Flags)
        DT Willie Henry – Michigan (6-3 305lbs) 5th Rounder
        DT Matt Ioannidis – Temple (6-3 300lbs 5th/6th Rounder
        DT Greg Milhouse – Campbell (6-1 300lbs) 6th Rounder
        DT Nile Lawrence-Stample – Fla State (6-1 320lbs) 6th Rounder
        DT Vincent Valentin – NEbraska (6-4 330lbs) 6th/7th Rounder
        DT Trevon Coley – FLorida Atlantic (6-1 305lbs) 7th Rounder/UDFA
        DT Darius Latham – INdiana (6-4 310lbs) 7th Rounder/UDFA

        I really like Reader, Henry, Ioannidis & Milhouse as Rotational Depth Players who will bring Energy, Athleticism and High Motors

        • anyone have the list of prospects the eagles have met with? as of 4/13 im seeing the list included 0 D Lineman and only 1 O Lineman.

          • That’s weird… You would think both would be High on the List..
            I believe the Eagles think that both Taylor Hart and Travis Raciti can Play DT in Schwartz’s 4-3 Scheme.. I have DL Travis Raciti, LB Dontae Skinner and Safety Jerome Couplin as my Summer Camp/Preseason Players who Shine this Year on Defense..

            OL is very Crowded and will have a lot of Competition this Summer

            Center – Kelce, Barrett Jones, Wisnewski

            Guards – Brooks, Andrews, Barbree, Wisnewski, Tobin, Kelly, Malcolm Bunche & Brett Boyko

            Tackle – Peters, Lane Johnson, Barbree, Kelly & Tobin

  15. *********** EAGLES NEWS *********

    ACCORDING TO MY SUPER DUPER EXCLUSIVE PERSONAL SOURCE IN LEAGUE CIRCLES Eagles signed WR T.J. Graham.

    ******** CONFIRMED***************

    LMFAO

  16. TJ Graham 6-0 180lbs from NC State University who was Drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the 3rd Round of the 2012 Draft and is strictly a Speed WR and can also Return Punts/Kick-Offs..
    He ran a 4.41 Time in the 40 Yard Dash with 10′ Long Jump an 34′ Vertical
    with 8 Reps Lifted at 225lbs at his College Combine..
    He’ played for the Bills, Titans, Jets & Saints

    Career Receptions : 61 for 794 Yards and 4 TD’s

      • With 3 Veteran Signings at WR in Randle, Givens and now TJ Graham to go along with Matthews,Agholor & Huff, and with last Years Practice Squad Receivers in Rasheed Bailey, Freddie Martino & Jonathon Krause the Eagles likely won’t even Draft a Receiver, Maybe sign 1-2 Undrafted WR’s to invie into Camp

  17. Regarding carson wentz, isn’t it a bit scary that a qb only had 62% completion percentage in the weak conference he played in?

    And when his backup came in when he was injured, didn’t he play just as good as wentz?

    We’re talking about a qb who barely a threw in his conference.

    Shouldn’t we hope the rams take wentz?

  18. “And when his backup came in when he was injured, didn’t he play just as good as wentz?”

    7 starts 130 for 208 for 1651yrds 17tds 4 ints

    8 starts 90 of 147 for 1144 yrds 13tds 4 ints

    So ya…no dropoff at all….

    BTW Koolbreeze, why do you post as CT?

  19. Are the Eagles certain that Wentz will be the pick at #2? I’m hearing that the Rams are leaning more towards Wentz than Goff. Some are saying that it’s already a done deal with the Rams. So maybe we are getting Goff..

    • Eagles like both QB’s. They would not have done the deal if they didn’t. When asked at the presser to discuss the move up from 8 to 2, he stated that you have to connect the dots. The truth is both Wentz and Goff have the same agent. The Eagles found out who the Rams were taking from the agent….trust and believe that. That is why Howie said he was pretty sure that the guy they want will be there at pick 2.
      Most reports, the vast majority of them are saying the Rams had decided on Goff when they privately worked him out.

      • New Mock Draft

        1) Rams – QB Goff
        2) EAGLES – QB Wentz
        3) Chargers – OT L Tunsil
        4) Cowboys – DB J Ramsey
        5) Jaguars – DE J Bosa
        6) Ravens – DL D Buckner
        7) 49ers – LB M Jack
        8) Browns – OT R Stanley
        9) TB Bucs – CB V Hargeaves
        10) NY GIants – OT J Conklin
        11) Bears – DE S Lawson
        12) Saints – DT S Rankins
        13) Dolphins – RB Zeke Elliot
        14) Raiders – CB William Jackson
        15) Titans – WR L Treadwell

  20. Gonna be a real treat watching josh Norman facing Jordan Matthews and Sam bradturd this year. Lol

    • I’m not on the anti wentz train at all. I’m just asking questions. I am a very rational fan aND will root the kid..

      There is not a thing in the world to hate about the guy. I’ve been watching tape on him and highlights non stop. He has the skill and every thing u want.

      And after more research, it’s very clear the Eagles have no mortgaged there future. Howie did it in a way to where everything is separated throughout the next 3 years. There isn’t one draft that is crippled.

      Not a bad idea to potentially get a stud.

      But the question is, which qb should we prefer? One that played in a tougher conference, or the small town kid?

  21. Wentz should start, he is the number two pick in the entire draft. He should be a day one starter. They need to find a deal for Bradford asap and move on from him. Bradford maybe a lot of things but he’s not dumb, he knows he’s a lame duck quarterback with no future here now. Wentz is ready he ran a pro style offense, if he’s a player he will take his lumps and improve. If he’s a chump we will find out soon enough.

    • Nah, McNabb was the number two overall pick and did not start from day 1. Sit him and let him watch and learn. I trust that blue print. Patience will pay off at the end. I hope Bradford plays his butt off this season so we can flip him and recoup that second round pick we gave up. Bradford is a lame duck QB, but he needs to be a leader and team player like people on here was saying he was prior to the move up. Let Bradford earn that franchise mega-contract. It’s a win win!

  22. Mariota and Winston were day one starters, for those who compared him to them so lets go.

    • Situations involving Mariota and Winston were completely different. Neither team had a QB with Bradford’s pedigree on the roster. Bradford was the #1 overall pick in 2010. He is a franchise caliber QB 🙂 let him start, let Wentz learn.

  23. Aaron Rodgers was the 24th pick in the draft…not the second pick…GB didn’t give up a boatload of drafts picks to get him…the notion that the second round pick in the draft has to sit a year to “learn” is absolutely ridiculous.
    When you draft a guy that high and move up to get him…he has to play and the best way to learn is by getting reps, making mistakes…learning from those mistakes and getting better.
    Wentz should be the starting QB-Day 1 and what we should see is steady improvement….will he have some terrible games…of course…but how does he bounce back. Will he make bad decisions…absolutely…but does he learn and improve.
    By the end of the year if he is the real deal he will be better and next year he will be ready to show off the talent, he will know the receivers better…
    But sitting him on the bench is ridiculous…you gave up too much for the kid to sit him on the bench…he has to play!!
    Trade Bradford and Play the kid…bottom line.

    • Donnovan was the second overall pick and sat for the first nine games. LOL, as if where Rodgers being picked 24th matters, there is no draft scale to dictate if a player should sit and for how long. No, Brett Favre is why Aaron sat for so long..and you know it so stop with the bullshit about giving up draft picks…kool, you don’t get to dictate or set the rules…The Eagles are not listening to you, they have tuned you out…nah, you were never tuned in.

      And hey, for the record, we have the pedigreed, franchise QB in Bradford (snicker snicker, giggle giggle) to keep the seat warm for the future starting franchise QB. The Eagles have already rejected your plan as it relates to Bradford being the franchise future QB, had nothing to due with injuries either….now you think you know how the Eagles should handle their franchise QB….lmao..ok!.They did not listen to you then, they ain’t listening to you now…YOU REAL MAD BRO!!!

    • Amen Kool, I do believe Eagle fans would be patient with him during his growth period. The Boo birds won’t come out until his second year.

  24. Koolbreeze, you like quoting Doug Pederson,well here is a quote for you.

    This is what Doug Pederson said about what he thinks about what Sam Bradford might think if the Eagles drafted a QB in the first round. This presser was on March 30, 2016.

    “And honestly, if you’re the starter, who cares? Who cares? Why are you looking over your shoulder, if you’re the starter. And that’s the way Sam has to approach this. Even with Chase [Daniel] there. And even if we go out and draft a quarterback this year. If you’re the guy, you’re the guy. You’re looking forward and not behind. If you’re constantly looking behind, that’s a problem.”

    Sam Bradford is the guy, he’s the starting QB THIS YEAR….it’s what you wanted, well…you got it!! Be careful what you wish for son..CTFU!!!

    • Pederson also says “I think in our situation we’ve go two solid quarterbacks so if he were to be on our roster, he may not have to play right away, so that’s the beauty of having two veteran guys in front of him,” he said, when asked about Wentz’s lack of in-game experience. “But you dive into him as a person, his work ethic, his off-the-field attitude, how he handles his media, how he handles his teammates, puts him kind of into elite status when it comes to quarterback.”

      • EHL, you guys are incredible flip-flop specialists

        I’ve been consistent

        I have said on a number of occasions that if the Eagles had an opportunity to draft a Jameis Winston or a Andrew Luck

        Bye-Bye Bradford

        I’m sticking to that position because obviously Coach Pederson believes this kid is of that caliber looking at what you gave up to move to the second round of the draft.

        Now I strongly disagree with their assessment…I dont believe Wentz is a franchise QB but I’m not the QB guru, and more importantly, my ass is not on the line.

        So bye-bye Bradford…he has to go…

        And when you give up what you give up…the kid has to play

        If Pederson is right and the kid is the next Joe Flacco cool

        But if he is the next Nick Foles we are is serious,big time trouble

  25. Quit the pissing and moaning. If wentz develops he is our qb through 2030. 20 fuckin 30!!! Acting like kids on Christmas if that’s what Doug thinks is best for our long term success then let the man do what’s best. Come week 10 when we 3-7 with bradturd lets reassess

  26. “he has to play and the best way to learn is by getting reps,”

    So now you are an NFL quarterbacks coach who knows the “best way” to develop QBs??

    Both your former heroes were #1 pick busts that may have benefited from not being thrown into the breach right away, getting shellshocked and never recovering.

    One never learned how not to be a one read and run loser.
    The other turned into a chech down machine because he plays scared.

    Perhaps had they not been thrown to the dogs day 1 they could have developed into something.

    So you might want to re-think your position.

    He’ll play when the Eagles coaches feel he’s ready to play.

  27. abracadabra … Howie waived his magic wand and the Eagles are repaired.
    Pay Vinny Curry a boat load of money for playing only 1 out of every 3 plays.
    Hire the unemployed Jim Schwartz and add a bunch of his former Buffalo Bill bench players . The same Buffalo Bills who couldn’t stop Sam Bradford from actually winning a game. Eagles are going to have to put up 30 plus points a game to win next season.

  28. BS!!! Spare me

    You didn’t give up a bunch of picks to draft McNabb…

    The team McNabb was on was awful with a terrible offensive line and shabby defense..so rather than send McNabb out to get slaughtered right away…like Dallas did Troy Aikman…they waited a few games…played him in some blowouts and then started McNabb in the end of the year.

    This team is way better than the team McNabb played on…with a better offensive line that’s been improved in free agency.

    Vinniedafoolass mancrushes-Nick Foles and Kevin Kolb- spent plenty of time on the bench, getting instructions they still sucked.

    When you give up what you gave up to get the QB, you are telling us he is special…if he is special he should play immediately…take his lumps, get better, and we will see the rise of a franchise QB.

    But if he sucks, when he takes the lumps his confidence will be destroyed, he wont improved…he will become like Nick Foles…a guy with the physical tools to play the position but lacking the heart and fortitude to play.

    The vast and overwhelming majority of Players get better by playing the game not sitting on the damm bench.

    It Wentz has what it takes, if he is great like a Manning, a Troy Aikman, and other great QB’s, he will take some lumps and grow

    Either you have it or you dont!

    Bradford has to go…the decision has been made…no hedging or fudging now…

    Get Wentz ass on the field and let the kid grow by playing…not sitting on the damm bench.

      Dumb, Desperate, and Delusional

      Sam Bradford is the Starting QB..get used, settle in…and stop the madness

      LMAO…Sam is the starting QB kool…you were right all along..Get used to it buddy, I am! LOL

    • Koolbreeze, stop bitching, moaning, whining and crying about how the Eagles have to start Carson Wentz..or whoever, the coach who you called the QB expert will make that call, and he has made it clear Sam Bradford will start. Sam is the franchise QB with that massive contract…follow the money. You repeatedly quoted Pederson as it came to Sam being a top notch QB, now, you don’t want to listen to coach…Coach said Sam is the starting QB..get used to it..Sam ain’t going nowhere..he is the starting QB..
      Book It

      LMAO!!! Your words coming back to bite you in the ass!!!

      • EHL, you lame flip-flopper

        My words are consistent

        I stand by them

        I’m not a cut a run, bitch and moan guy

        The Eagles are drafting a QB

        The second pick in the draft, and traded a valuable picks to get him

        They say he is on the level of Winston

        Look back at my words…I said if the Eagles could get Winston…’Bye, Bye Sam”

        I’m going with the Coach…he says this guy is a Franchise QB

        Bye, Bye Sam!

        Its you that bitching, scared, whining

        You wanted him gone now you got the guy you want and you want to wimp out and sit him on the bench

        Your bitching up…scared…dont want the kid to take any lumps…

        Bullshit…stop being a scared rabbit, flip-flopping

        The situation is different…get rid of Sam and start the kid!

        • Koolbreeze, your desperate and delusional. Desperate because you are mad that a franchise rook is coming in to replace your mancrush Bradfraud so you want him to fail at all cost. Delusional because you think coach Pederson would actually develop his franchise QB under such a stupid lame brain plan.

          Koolbreeze …LMAO and CTFU, nobody cares what you think the Eagles should do, you were wrong about what the Eagles thought about Bradford, you were wrong about the Eagles not wanting to take a QB in the first. You thought they would take a Dak Prescott or Kevin Hogan in the later rounds.You repeatedly blustered and blow harded how Sam was the franchise QB. Now you don’t want Sam to be the starting QB since your heart has been broken and you’ve been proved wrong..your feelongs are hurt as your Bradford House has come crumbling down around you in a heap of heartache.
          Fact is, whether I want Wentz to start or not is irrelevant, Doug Pederson’s plan is to let Wentz sit and watch….that was the plan all along…get used to it..accept the reality. All your bitching, whining, crying and moaning about it is not going to change a thing. You are delusional, you think that the Eagles should follow your lame plan…nope.
          I never flip flopped, I always wanted the Eagles to draft a QB early..you gave me shit for it…I liked both Goff and Wentz, wanted Bradford gone. Well, Bradford is here, he is the starter for this year..follow the $, it’s a one year deal..I told you the what the plan should be in March..you said I was desperate and delusional…low and behold, what I said should happen is manifesting, and the Eagles have rejected your lame ass plan.

          Koolbreeze, aka Smokescreen…LMAO, you’ re full of bullshit liar, you said for the past two several months that the Eagles were not going to take a QB at 8 or in the first round period. Now you are flip flopping saying they are taking a QB in the first round. You flip flopping liar. You’re cutting and running from what you repeatedly said was not going to happen..You said Sam Bradford is the QB, no QB, Wentz or Goff will be drafted even if they are available at 8..blah blah blah. Now you’re back tracking as the reality of the situation becomes clear to you, now you are compelled to take a new position, but you are saying that you are maintaining consistency..where?. LMAO…You have flipped flopped like a fish out of water….hey Koolbreeze, you should change your name to smokescreen!
          Stay consistent, say that Sam is the guy and the Eagles are not taking a QB in the first, don’t cave in now…maybe the Eagles are blowing smokescreens for some strange reason. Your whole world has crumbled around you, you are despondent and confused, you do not know what to say or where to go as you have been living in a alternate universe and finally are awakening out of it and your slumber as the reality has smacked you in the face.

          Remember, you told macdolo that you had the Hate Sam Crew right where you wanted them…do you still have us right where you want us…lame ass lying flip flopper?

          Lean back Smokescreen, lean back!!

        • Who in the Eagles org said he is on the level of Winston and when? I know I said that but never seen a Eagles employee say it

  29. Koolbreeze, you’re still talking about Nick Foles…how lame!

    • Make that 2 Franco dingers

      And the flyers goalie stood on his head

      • A QB sitting for a year can only help the rook. I mean why not?

        Let’s go into the season with the thought we are going to start sam.
        Let’s see this rookie in practice first and see if the kid can ball or not.
        If the coaching staff, and players believe he is out performing bradford then make the call to NY, San fran, or Denver to get 4th rounder for sam.

        If sam starts so what? It can only help the rookie to know what it is like to go thru a nfl season spectating learning everything possible. They are looking forward to the next 15-20 years right? No need to rush.

        Since philly will suck this year and only win 4 games, they will start the rooone by week 12 latest

        • Excellent post CT

          It’s the Reid, McNabb blue print.
          Besides…no team is trading for Sam Bradford right now. Especially with that contract…no other team will pay him that money as they are not desperate enough.
          Let Sam play his massive contract out this year. Hopefully he plays really well…then we can trade him for a high draft pick. Like deserteagle said..Bradford is an asset. This makes sense…cutting him does not help the team in the big picture given what has transpired over the last few days.

        • why does he gave to sit for a year if he is as good as Mariota and Winston?

          • pdiddy, there is no right or wrong way to develop the QB as it relates to sitting him or playing him. It all depends on the situation and the philosophy of the coach.
            This is what coach Pederson says “I think in our situation we’ve go two solid quarterbacks so if he (Wentz) were to be on our roster, he may not have to play right away, so that’s the beauty of having two veteran guys in front of him,” he said, when asked about Wentz’s lack of in-game experience. “But you dive into him as a person, his work ethic, his off-the-field attitude, how he handles his media, how he handles his teammates, puts him kind of into elite status when it comes to quarterback.”

            It’s the Reid, McNabb model
            It will benefit the rookie QB to watch from the sideline so he can learn via observation. He gets to understand the nuances, subtleties of the game as well as observe various forms of pro defenses. Now, Wentz will have to get used to the speed of the game by playing, but he can learn plenty by watching. He has the physical abilities and skills to play in the NFL as well as the temperament and intelligence.
            The fact is Sam is here for 1 year, he’s not going anywhere. He is getting paid a handsome amount of money. Sam has to play, you can’t trade him with that contract as it stands. Next year Sam’s salary is not as trade prohibitive. I hope Sam plays very well, that will increase his trade value.

            As far as Winston and Mariota, they were thrown into the fire because they were drafted with no QB’ in front of them that were deemed worthy of playing of being competitive, nor was there a QB on either team established enough to be considered a QB that could teach either Mariota or Winston.

            • Bull!!

              what a bunch of doubletalk from you EHL

              You dont deem Bradford has worthy….

              You develop a Franchise QB by playing him, by giving him the reps

              By all accounts this is a very smart kid with a lot of fortitude

              You learn by playing…ALL QB’s have taken lumps…and the good ones take the lumps, learn and grow.

              Winston was thrown in the fire in his very first game against a tough Carolina defense…he had 4 turnovers in the game. The next week he bounced back against Jacksonville…he learned he grew…he developed…

              In making the trade, you are saying that these QB’s are on that level…they need to play. What Carson Wentz needs is experience…not sitting on the bench watching…getting on the field and learning…experience is the best teacher!

              • What a bunch of doubletalk from you EHL..LMAO…

                Call it what you want, take it up with the coach…it’s his plan to develop and bring whoever the QB is. Unfortunately for you, the coach does not see it your way, nor do I!

                Bradford is a bridge QB like I said, he has to perform his role in this big picture. He is good for that role..Sam Bridgfeford. The rook will get in the game at certain times, but, not for the beginning of the season.

                We will see the rook in pre-season, after that, to the sideline to look and learn. Excellent plan by coach Pederson. Hopefully Bradford plays well so we can trade him next year for a high pick.

                signed EH.ELL

                You’r just mad…I understand, but get over it…the coach has spoken..and so has Howie! Get on board..stop hating..be an Eagles fan..lol!

              • CTFU…what a lame flip-flopper you are EHL

                You whined for months about Bradford being on the team

                You cried like a baby never wanting to give the Coach a chance when he didn’t see it your way

                You stomped, moaned and bitched about Bradford

                Now, presto…you are a Pederson supporter

                Bullshit…you are a flip-flopper

                I am being consistent…I support the team…I have declared openly and taken a position…

                Like I said…pass the mustard on the crow I will eat if Wentz turns out to be a franchise QB that leads us to the Super Bowl

                I would duck, bitch, run and hide like you do on here EHL when you are wrong….

                I’m still here and I’m not cutting and running because I was wrong about the Eagles moves on the QB position. I didn’t expect that a team would spend $34 million dollars in guaranteed money and THEN trade a bunch of picks to draft a Division 1-AA player who has only thrown 615 passes in his career and is slow reading defenses…

                In the history of the NFL, no one has ever made this kind of move, you nor anyone else can point to a situation like this one…its unique.

                So now with the new situation, I’m stating the obvious and being consistent with what I said before…I’m being consistent because I told you EHL directly

                “If Jameis Winston was available to the Eagles to get somehow-Bye Bye Sam”

                Now Carson Wentz is the QB the Coach wants…he believes he is a Franchise QB…

                Bye Bye Sam…we need draft picks, we dont need a disgruntled vet on the team, we dont need any QB controversies, we need to take a chance now on Sam getting hurt and we dont get anything for him since we are going with the rookie as the future Franchise QB.

                We need the rookie to develop like what we saw in Jameis Winston…a rookie who got better as the season progressed.

                Let the rookie take his lumps, get better, and lead us to a SuperBowl

                Or let the rookie take his lumps, fall apart, and we fire Howie and Pederson and start all over again.

                Now they do something that you like…presto…you are suddenly a Eagles fan…

              • Koolbreeze…aka Smokescreen, let me bust your bubble real fast. This is what I discussed regarding drafting and sitting the QB on March 10. Then you replied. No flip flopping on my part.

                The Eagles are perfectly set to take a QB at 8. They have Bradford as the competitive QB to hold things down until he is gone, then you have Daniel to teach the rook the offense. No player the Eagles draft at 8 is going to get them to the playoffs..that falls on Bradford. The o line will be better and the receivers should not have a worse year than last. It would ha e been a disaster if we took Manziel..but I said he could not play….Wentz and Goff can play in this league, and a couple of years of watching will only help like it did for Aaron Rodgers. Just because Johnny football( the disaster you liked) blew up in your face does not mean that other QB’s will suffer the same fate. The fact is kool whether you like it or not the Eagles have to draft a realistic possible QB of the future..and that is not a late round prospect. Bradford can be cut after this year…the Eagles have to have a viable option in the wings to be the franchise QB, i.e. long term solution.

                EHL…the Eagles are not wasting a high pick on Wentz , Goff, or Lynch…that would be the height of foolishness. They grabbed Daniels to protect against injury to Bradford…the thing Bradford has to prove is can he stay healthy. If he stays healthy he is your franchise QB and the Eagles are trying to win…now…
                If a QB they like …I’m hearing they like Dak Prescott …is available in the 4th or 5th round…they will take a flier on him and let him learn…but spending a high draft pick at #8 on one of these low rated QB is simply ridiculous.
                If Bradford stays healthy…and that is a big if…but if he stays healthy and the Eagles make the playoffs over the next couple of years he will be resigned to another big mega deal
                Book it!
                EHL, theJohnny Manziel argument is lame…he would have been a good pick and fit in the Eagles offense under Chip Kelly…but no one can predict a guy being an alcoholic..are you going to set here and tell me that you have been %100 right on every prospect that you predicted could play?
                You and I know that’s bullshit and no one on here is right all of the time.

                None of the Qb’s in this draft are projected as ‘cant-miss’ prospects…these guys are not in the class of an Andrew Luck, Mariotta, or Winston…none of them…Bradford is the franchise QB and they got Daniels as the backup and insurance against Bradford getting hurt…and they will pick up .
                Face…and let it go…Bradford is the guy…bottom line and the only thing that will probably get him out of the job is injury. Short of that he is going to play, he will play well…the question is will the other aspects of the team perform on a high level…We win the division this year…Bradford takes us to the playoffs…he will get a new megacontract…

                Book it!…just like I told you and predicted all along…

                Obviously I wrote that before the trade. No flip flopping on my part…it’s what I believed made sense…sit down son..I just schooled you!

                I just busted that asssss!!!!!

  30. Wentz/Goff will Play when Coach Pederson feels they are Ready to Play regardless if they were selected #2, #8 or #13 .. The Coach is not going to toss out a Rookie QB before they are ready, especially when you gave 2 Veteran QB ahead of him onthe depth chart… Because a Player is Chosen 1,2,8 or 13 doesn’t mean they are Day 1 Starters in the NFL , obviously being selected higher in the Draft means you are more Talented and further along and gave greater upside to be Succesful at the NFL but it’s no guarantee for instant success… Let the kid learn and Play when he’s ready as determined by his Coachs not where he was selected in the Draft which means nothing..

    • Seriously. What a joke this is.

      “Throw him right in there!” “If he dies…he dies…..”

      Its a guy with 23 starts at Div II. He is being drafted on his abilities, smarts, and potential.

      And already Koolidiot and crew are screaming “DALLAS GAME” before he’s even played!!

      Completely ridiculous.

      Get him in there in TC. Playing against NFL coverages. Then introduce him to blitz concepts. Preseason action. Then let Sideways start the season and do what he always does. Meanwhile the kid studies, practices, acclimates himself,a dn coaches put him in when he is ready, and not before.

      If coaches had done that with your two failed heroes and they hadn’t become shellshocked in their first years, perhaps they could have developed into something other than the great disappointments they both are/were.

      • Bull, Vinnie…

        Cream rises to the top…if this kid is a Franchise QB like Andrew Luck, like Jameis Winston, like Peyton Manning, like Troy Aikman…then you start him and let him takes lumps…

        The kid will take lumps no matter how long you sit his ass on the bench to ‘teach’ and ‘instruct’ him. Part of the reason you drafted him this high is that you believe in his intelligence, his ability to persevere in adversity, and his mental toughness.

        You dont believe he’s Nick Foles…you think he is Andrew Luck.

        There is no point in sitting him on the bench and starting Bradford you can”t have a lame duck Qb leading your team. Wasn’t Jeff Lurie talking about “emotional intelligence”…do the Eagles have a clue.

        Never in the history of the NFL have you ever seen a situation where a team spends $22 million in guaranteed money on a QB to turn around and then trade away a bunch of picks to move up in the draft to get a ‘franchise Qb’.

        You have to cut the loss and trade Bradford and let the kid take his lumps. If he is truly a franchise QB you will see what we saw in Winston last year…flashes of good steady play, improvement

        You have to create a supportive environment around the kid …why have him sitting behind a disgruntled QB who now hates your organization and not on board with your direction.

        Trade Bradford and play the kid.

        Plus Gloomysmitty is right..now you are in a situation were you cant keep Bradford and take the chance on him getting hurt…then he has no value. You signed him to the short make good deal because of his injury history anyway. Since you have given away valuable picks that you need to have around the franchise QB….you need to trade Bradford now…eat the money and
        You develop a franchise QB by getting him reps, having him in a supportive environment, having his teammates believe in him. You dont create a situation where the team is divided and part of the team believing and supporting a lame duck and the other part wanting to go with the kid.
        Most of you believed Bradford stunk ass and the Eagles were going to lose a bunch of games anyway. Now you want Bradford to play…to ‘ease’ the kid in…bullshit!

        Get his ass on the field…play the kid and let him develop…let him take his lumps and if he aint Nick Foles, if he is truly a franchise QB he will prove it this year by getting better….just like Bradford did last year.

  31. I wonder if the Eagles would take Jalen Smith in the 3rd rd

    • Eagles got burned drafting injured players in the past trying to nab perceived 1st round talent in the mid rounds. ( Jake Ikegwuonu, Ricky Sapp, and Cornelius Ingram). I think they scratched that philosophy and red tag those injured players now.

  32. As I look around the league not many teams are gonna need a qb next yr most teams already have there qb either in house or there gonna get in this yrs draft…
    Saints- took one last yr 3rd Rd
    Pats- Jimmy Garofalo
    Cowboys- they will probably get there guy this yr
    Giants- same thing with them
    Chargers- they just signed phillip rivers so there not letting him go for bumford
    Ect……
    So the time to strike is now for a team that don’t get there qb this yr…49ers,bills,denver,and the Jets Bradford’s value is high now, if you bring him back and he gets hurt then you get nothing…

    • We all know that a Years Time us a eternity in Professional Sports and especially in the NFL where things can and will often change due to Player Injuries, Contract Status, Changes in the Front Office or Head Coaches or Staff
      Look at some Teams withHighly Paid QB’s who just haven’t Won or made the Playoffs recently , Bears with Cutler, Rivers with Chargers, Falcons with Ryan and Stafford with the Lions… Are all these Players/QB’s Safe, are there Coaching Staffs??

      Falcons with

  33. 2016 Eagle Defense —
    Malcolm Jenkins and Fletcher Cox are studs.
    Bennie Logan, Connor Barwin, & Jordan Hicks are above average starters.
    Mychal Kendricks & Nolan Carrol are average starters.
    Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, & Eric Rowe are below average starters.
    —-
    I haven’t watch enough of their games to be sure but I would rate:
    Rodney McLeod as an average starter.
    Leodis McKelvin, Nigel Bradham & Ron Brooks as below average starters.

  34. I’ve never seen Carson Wentz play, can’t wait.
    I hope I don’t have to wait until the 4th quarter in the preseason to see him. If that tiny little midget knob swabber Chase Daniels is playing before Wentz in the preseason I’m booing Howie and Pederson at the game. If I have to accept Sam Bradford is day one starter, so be it but I completely reject Doug Pederson’s ball licker ( Chase Daniels ) playing ahead of Wentz.

  35. It is being reported that the Broncos are more interested in trading up in the draft to draft Paxton Lynch than trading for Sam Bradford, even after the Eagles pay the second part of his salary. Broncos just are not interested. Wow, a QB starved and needy team not interested in a pedigree, stud, franchise QB (hahahaha) such as Bradford…I can’t believe it.
    The Broncos are in win now mode, they have all the pieces except the QB, and they don’t want Sham Bradfraud, I mean Sam Bridgeford..WTF is wrong with John Elway?!?! He should want to take our garbage, I mean franchise QB.
    Howie, use your smokescreen Jedi mind tricks!!!

  36. Later for that

    The Day One Starter should be your Franchise QB who you believe will lead the team to a Super Bowl in the future Carson Wentz!

    This is different from 1999…where you had a horrible offensive line and a bum QB-Doug Pederson as you QB.

    No one at that time believed in Pederson…you eased McNabb in a little but eventually you got him in there as your oline became a little more stable

    Here your offensive line is much better…you can ease the kid in by running the ball more early…

    You have to try and pull off a deal…the Jets, Denver, or any QB needy team…trade Sam now while he is healthy, eat the money so its less of a risk for the other team.

    No of course you risk looking completely stupid if this kid sucks ass and Bradford goes on to a great career…So what…

    You need to find out as soon as possible if this kid can handle the pressure of being a Qb here in Philly.

    Is this kid Andrew Luck or Nick Foles

    Is he Jameis Winston or Kevin Kolb.

    This kid needs to get reps, get used to the NFL speed

    We need to see this kid get knocked on his ass and what happens…does he fall apart…or does he have the competitiveness, the determination to get up and fight.

    The vast majority of Franchise QB’s got better by playing through adversity…not sitting on the bench watching.

    Get the kid in the there…get rid of Bradford for the highest pick you can get

    and Pray that Howie and Pederson knows what they are doing in selecting this kid!

    • All of a sudden the Eagles have a good o line… Too funny. Your mv7 is clear

      • the Eagles have added better players in free agency to the O-line…your keeping Peters banking on him being better…and you’ve added Brandon Brooks and Stefen Wisniewski…who are better than what you had at guard last year

        You guys kill me…all this time you cried and whined about how much Bradford sucks…now we are about to draft a franchise QB and now you want to sit him on the bench and let Bradford play…

        The best thing you can do is get rid of the disgruntled Bradford…and put the kid in there and let him develop. If he is the player is is worthy of being the second pick in the draft he will get better as the season progresses…just like Winston and Mariotta got better.

        You cant say out of one side of your mouth that the kid is just as good as Winston and Marriota who started Day 1 and then advocate the kid sitting on the bench for this upcoming season.

        The kid needs to play…we have to accept that he will struggle and have bad games…but if he truly is the future he will overcome that and get better. If he’s not a Franchise QB and the Eagles have messed up…we will know that sooner rather than later…

        • Hey Smokescreen…Waaaah, waaah, waaaah, stop crying and complaining, nobody wants to hear your incessant moaning and whining about the rook not starting!

          • LMAO…a little nervous already EHL

            No confidence in the kid…why not?

            Wentz is a franchise QB…let’s get the kid on the field…

            I’ve already given the kid a pass…I’ve already said he is going to struggle

            You predicted that Bradford would struggle too because he sucks

            Using your reasoning, why should we watch the guy who sucks who we know is not going to be around, who will probably get hurt…according to all of your arguments before getting this No#2 draft pick…

            Be consistent…stop flip-flopping…get your own position…take a stand and stop bitchin…if he is your guy stand up for the kid

            I’m giving the kid the fair shot…let him start and struggle…let him have the games where he throws 4 picks and lets us see him overcome that…

            Lets see this kid get knocked around..and get up and answer the challenge and stay competititve

            Lets see him do what franchise QB’s have done early in their career..make a lot of mistakes, but also make some great plays too…

            Dont get scared now…dont get nervous now EHL…

            This is just what you wanted…you got it…so lets stand up

            Stop bitching…

        • Hot air to be clear you are giving Carson Wentz 6 years to prove he is not a bust, correct?

          • Hell no! havablunt…you will run out of brain cells by that time with all the weed you smoke…I’m not putting any time constraints on the kid…he has to get on the field…and what we will see when he first gets out there…whether it would be 1 year, 2 years, or 3 years from now is a QB that struggles…
            If he is a franchise QB we will see signs of him improving and getting better….may or may not translate into wins…but we will see him getting better, making plays as he plays more and gets more experience.
            If he sucks, his confidence will be shot and we will see a guy who tries and works hard…but his confidence wont let him be better…we will see him nervous and shaky in the pocket…not going thru progressions…
            We will see him metamorphosis into Nick Foles…this is who the kid reminds me off…Foles with more athleticism…he had a good offensive line in Division 1AA, but his main problem was slow decision making…a smart kid, knew the offense…but was slow in processing…
            In the NFL, that can be a big problem
            Sitting on the bench is not going to resolve that problem…he needs experience, he needs to play…

            • So if he fails and his confident sags we will see sammy

              • You sound like a retarded imbecile if you think the kid reminds you of foles. Have you only watched 3 quarterbacks in your life?

                This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever read here. You gotta be some form of slow saying that dumb shit.

                Lmfao this is unreal. You fuckin with people right?

            • You are such a putz.

              Sorry….such a petulant angry putz. Eagles fan indeed…throwing his new QB (not some retread loser – but a brand new shiny draft pick) under the bus before he’s even donned a jersey.

              Seriously man….you hated it when foles took a 1-4 team to the Playoffs. railed against it the entire way “Dallas Game!!”

              And now you’re done yourself one better…screaming “Dallas Game!” before the kid has even stepped on the field.

              I can;t wait till he throws his first pick, just to watch your head explode.

              “Put him on the field!!!!!” Watch him improve over the course of the year like Mariotta nd Winston!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

              That’s your line right??

              You do know that both Mariotta and Winston struggled down the stretch don’t you? Or did you miss that??

              Did you miss that their play got worse as the season continued, or did you just ignore it because it doesn;t fit your childish narrative?

              Did you miss Mariotta having 13 tds to 5 ints by week 8…..and then fading badly over the second half??

              Did you see his comp% decrease ? His TD rate decrease? His ints increase?? His sacks increase?

              Did you see what happened to Winston over the last 6 weeks of the season? After his big game against the Birds??

              Did you see his comp% decrease ? His TD rate decrease? His ints increase?? His sacks increase?

              Those guys didn’t improve….they got worse….will this have a long term effect on them? I dunno. I don;t think so….but you never know.

              So STFU “QB guru” because you know nothing? Some Qbs need some seasoning…some start right away.

              But almost none succeed right away. The vast majority strggle mightily. Its to be expected.

              but not from a petulant 13 year old like yourself. You’ll be screaming bloody murder the moment he takes his first sack.

              Go put in a Falcons “highlight” tape from 2001 and be done with it.

              Better yet…why don’t you go watch the tape of your hero folding like a little bitch in the 2004 NFC champ game getting beat by the QB who sat on the bench 2/3 of his first season learning.

              And man…don’t go away mad…..just go away…..

              • Wentz nor Goff has been drafted, not in the league, not taken 1 snap in an NFL training camp and Smokescreen already has them as busts. You know he is greasing the skids, got the old koolbreeze book of complaints out…but, he is going to give the kid a shot, a fair chance…LMAO koolbreeze his perturbed right now, you can feel it..desperate and mad as he has been forced out of his delusional haze of Bradfraud fairy tale land.
                It’s fine, because Wentz or Goff, whichever will step up and play very well..some bumps and bruises along the way when coach Pederson gets him in there..then kool will make up all kinds of excuses as to why the QB is playing well.

              • Do note that both Winston & Mariota hit that old Rookie Wall by December…
                Remember all these Rookies doing their Bowl Games, Senoir Bowl Week, Training for Combine, then College Team workouts and then Individual Team Workouts and this is all by the Draft and then once Drafted they are off to a Rookie OTA’s and Team OTA’s and then ready for Summer Camp so sooner or later these Rookies bodies are just going to slow up & not be at peak performance… You look at a couple of Rookies who finished their Rookie Seasons Strong and you look at Atodd Gurley who did workout/practice in the Summer, and was held out the first 4-5 Games of the Rams Season and then went on to Win the ROY.. Look at the Panthers WR D afunchess who Bradley played the first half of his Season for it took him a while to learn the Playbook and then came on strong the final 6-8 Weeks of the Season…
                It’s very difficult for Rookies to have a consistent strong Rookie Season as they have so much to learn while also learning how to take care of their bodies.. The smart ones pace themselves for a long Season and get stronger and stronger as they get more comfortable in their Roles ..

  37. Kool,, aww damn you got me..I’m real scared, so nervous I don’t know what to do…LMAO at your juvenile post… psychology 101. Do you honestly realize how lame that post is…pathetic..smdh & laughing @ you @ the same time. Embarrassed for you!!
    Carson Wentz will be a stud! Unlike you, I am willing to follow the plan that I laid out on March 10, yeah I reposted it, rather prophetic on my part.
    You mad bro!!!

  38. I’m with Kool. I want to see Carson Wentz play.
    I have no interest in watching the dingy dunky Sam Bradford 1 yard passes ever again nor that little midget girlfriend QB of the new Head Coach.

    • You will see him play…as soon as the coach decides to put him in..maybe game 1. Maybe game 9…maybe game 13. Coach will do it when he is comfortable. I am happy knowing we are getting a young qb for the future.

  39. I wonder if the Jets would trade rentals straight up.

    Bradford for Wilkerson

    2 years of a Starting NFL QB for a known amount of money for a guy that may give the Eagles one year and disappear.

    I would just love to see Cox and Wilkerson side by side for a year.

    • They’re not trading Sam unfortunately. Howie said it and they’re just not gonna do it. And it makes no sense to, to get a 4th for him just isn’t worth it. Play him , pray he plays better than last year and get a 2nd for him next year.

      ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini doesn’t see Sam Bradford as an option for New York.
      The Jets have been getting nowhere in talks with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bradford wants out of Philly after the Eagles traded up to draft his successor with the No. 2 pick. In theory, that would make the Eagles and Jets a perfect match. Of course, acquiring Bradford wouldn’t be that simple. He’s due $24 million over the next two seasons with $11 million guaranteed and trading for him would likely require New York to part with a third or fourth-round pick. Meanwhile, Philadelphia has no plans to trade Bradford and the Jets are still focused on re-signing Fitzpatrick. Bradford to the Jets is a pipe dream at this point. Apr 23 – 2:18 PM

  40. I wish the Eagles the best of luck Thursday night. If the pick is Wentz I hope he turns out to be a great pro. Go birds.

  41. There’s more and more chatter that the Rams are going to Select Wentz at #1 leaving Jared Goff for the Eagles who I am not as excited about ..

    • could you provide a link to that “chatter”?

      • Boomer Esiason said it

      • Charles White, Bucky Brooks of the NFL Channel
        White states that the Rams and Jeff Fisher are going to follow the blue print for his best years which was Drafting a big physical QB from a Division 2 School who has the physical attributes, the leadership skills and the maturity to lead the Team. This is what attracted Fisher to QB Todd McNair some 20 + years ago and what he’s been trying to duplicate ever since.. Carson Wentz has more of these same characteristics of McNair over Jared Goff
        Charles White also says the simplistic, Rush first offense of the Rams and the fact that they play in the most physical division (NFC West) requires that their QB be a Physical tough kid… Wentz checks off all the box for Jeff Fisher more than Jared Goff who most NFL Scouts would be better suited for a West-Coast Offense which Fisher & the Rams don’t do but that the Eagles and Pederson do run a variation of….
        Maybe the Eagles were always after QB Jared Goff!!

    • I listened to Dave Spadaro Interview Howie Roseman after the trade. The interview is on the Eagles website. Roseman talked about being excited to have the opportunity to draft either Goff or Wentz, he discussed their attributes. But, I picked up on something specific Howie said as he was talking about Wentz that makes me believe they already know he is going to be their guy. I will not reveal what it is he said, if you want you can go onto the Eagles website and listen to it. You may catch it too.

      • Another interesting nugget, Howie said that the Eagles had been planning since January to move up in the draft. They wanted a QB. They had already looked at the 2017 and 2018 QB class was not interested in the prospects so they wanted to get one this year.
        This shows that the plan was to bring in a rookie who could be the franchise QB. Signing Bradford was always just a stop gap plan. Bradford was NEVER EVER seen as “THEE GUY”. More of a plan B if they could not move up to get a QB. But the plan was to always move up and get the future franchise QB. So much for follow the money myth and the massive contract nonsense indicating Bradford was the franchise guy!

      • What a cliff hanger. Can you just post what he said? I’m out

  42. people.

    Speaking on WHIP Radio in Philadelphia, Esiason said he believes that the Los Angeles Rams will be taking Wentz with the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, and that will leave Cal quarterback Jared Goff to fall to the Eagles.

    “The only reason I think they (did) it is because they (knew) Jared Goff would be there,” Esiason said. “That’s what I believe.”

    Esiason is certainly in the minority thinking Wentz will go No. 1, as nearly every NFL reporter and analyst has either reported or said they think Goff will be going to the Rams.

    One interesting tie Esiason has to the Eagles’ organization, however, is that he was college roommates with the team’s new offensive coordinator, Frank Reich.

    Does Esiason know something nobody else does?

    “I still think it’s going to be Wentz and then Goff,” Esiason said, “I think the Eagles would be ecstatic if that were the case.”

  43. Most of the NFL Channel Guys say the same thing that Goff is more ready to play NFL QB for hisExperience and playing inanathletic Conference where the passing game is pretty wide openand so are the athletes on the field..
    But these same guys all say Wentz is the better long-term QB due to his physicality, maturity and big arm and his ability to move better and to extend plays without legs which we all know happens about 20% of all Plays where a QB has to buy time and slip and slide through-out the Pocket..

  44. NJ.com’s Jordan Raanan hears that there is a 99.9% chance the Rams select Cal QB Jared Goff with the first overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.
    Not only does Raanan report that the Rams are 99.9% set on drafting Goff, he also wrote that “the entire league knows it.” We had heard previously that part of the reason the Eagles traded for the No. 2 pick is that they were already working off the expectation that the Rams would draft Goff. If everything unfolds as expected, the Eagles will be selecting North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz with that second pick.

    • The Rams held a private workout with Goff. It was raining during the workout. Reported that Goff ripped and performed so well throwing the ball in the inclement weather..that sold the Rams on Goff. They moved up to number 1 shortly after that workout. All this other talk is a true smokescreen to create suspense and intrigue for the draft.

  45. I hope the Rams Select Goff at #1 as he can step right in and be their Starter Day 1 and then the Eagles can Select Wentz at #2 and Start the Grooming Process..
    You know who Goff reminds me of coming out of College, believe it or not,
    Sam Bradford.. They are built similar, have similar throwing mechanics and arm strength, rely on their quick release’s , but get them on the move and then they are not so good.. Many NFL Plays require that the QBbe able to throw on the move , it’s where many big plays occur when the Routes and Coverage is broken down and it’s keeping your eyes open downfield and making a play..

  46. It would be a total disaster if the Rams decided to stick it us and grab Wentz! It’s already a bad move and a terrible risk. It would get even worse by being stuck with Goff who played in that pop-gun, spread offense.
    It is still a reckless gamble with both of the QB’s,but with Wentz we can see why a lot scouts and football people have fell in love with the kid. He does have all the physical tools and played in a pro-style offense as opposed to the gimmick offense that Goff played in where he never takes a snap from center. .
    If you listened closely to Pederson, Wentz is clearly the guy he really likes..this is the guy he really wants…if the Rams take Wentz…its going to be a big blow.
    Maybe there is chance…if the Rams stick it to us, we maybe able to trade out and recover what we have loss in this terrible move!
    If the Rams grab Wentz…trade out would be the best move!

    • koolbreeze, The Eagles disagree with you assessments. Listen to the Dave Spadaro interview Howie Roseman on the Eagles website. They are comfortable drafting either one of the QB’s and will be happy with Wentz or Goff. Funny, now you prefer Wentz, who you called a more athletic Nick Foles. You’re all over the place, utterly confused, baffled, in complete disarray. Now that you’re coming out of your haze with your delusions of grandeur with Sam Bridgeford…I mean Sham Bradfraud, I mean Sam Bradford being the franchise QB with his massive mega-contract lean back and let the football experts take care of what happens with the QB position.
      BTW, your boy Manziel was indicted on assault charges…great choice by you…glad Chip did not get your guy!!! What a disaster…for real!!!

    • …if the Rams take Wentz…its going to be a big blow.
      Maybe there is chance…if the Rams stick it to us, we maybe able to trade out and recover what we have loss in this terrible move!
      If the Rams grab Wentz…trade out would be the best move!..

      LMAO, you are desperate, grasping at straws. Hoping and praying that somehow the Rams take Wentz, then the Eagles decide to trade out, although they have publicly stated that they will take either QB…translation..whichever QB the Rams don’t like. That’s how much they like both of them. They never would have traded into the second spot if this was not the case. Give it up kool, you are only swimming in quicksand, hanging onto a last shred of hope string . It’s over for you, you were wrong…completely wrong. Accept reality, there will be no trade backs, hope and pray all you want. It’s clear, the Eagles have rejected your assessment!!! The Eagle will take either Wentz or Goff and is fine with making both of them the future face of the franchise. Listen to the Howie interview on the Eagles website, he makes it clear…stop with the false hope, your only making yourself look more and more ridiculous!!!

  47. Watched Fox Sports Sunday,Howard Eskin and Dave Spadaro discussed upcoming Eagles draft. Spadarro stated that the Eagles were never going to draft Ezikiel Elliot and all of the Zeke talk was the smokescreen put out by the Eagles.
    Spadaro stated that he believes Goff goes to the Rams and Wentz is then drafted by the Eagles. Also, the plan is to sit Wentz for 2016.
    In the 3rd round the Eagles will target an offensive or defensive lineman.

  48. What??

    10 mins ago Wentz was a “more athletic” Nick Foles who couldn’t make “quick decisions” on the field and was guaranteed to be a bust??

    Now its a “disaster” if the Eagles aren’t going to get Wentz??

    Give it a rest pretender.

    You know little more than Jack and Shit.

    Don your MV7 jersey. Cuddle your Mv7 bobblehead. Re-watch your 2001 MV7 “highlight” film and STFU already.

    Oh….and don’t go away mad….just go away…….

    • Vinniedafool…why do you insist on lying, misrepresentation, and falsehood to put forth your pathetic position?

      Never did I say it was “guaranteed” that Wentz, Goff, or any QB prospect in this draft would be a “bust”

      I say they are NOT can’t miss prospects on the level of Andrew Luck or Jameis Winston…they are not….they can be bust…and Wentz had some of the same difficulties that Nick Foles had…except Wentz had it against Division 1 AA opponents…

      He holds the ball too long, he doesn’t always make quick reads and decisions and has a QB who only threw 615 passes in his career and didn’t play QB in high school until he was a senior…that MAY bite him in the ass playing in the NFL.

      He needs reps, experience…he needs to play!!

      I dont care if he sits one year, two years, or three years…when he gets on the field he is going to struggle a bit, go through learning pains that all QB’s go through…and then we will see

      Will he overcome…like the great QB’s do…or

      will he be like your mancrush-Nick Foles…and fall completely apart under the pressure?

      I DONT KNOW…and neither do the Eagles..and we gave up too much for such a risk!

  49. Sam Bradford has not asked for a trade from the Philadelphia Eagles and has no plans to do so, two sources close to the quarterback have told Yahoo Sports.

    While Philadelphia could still deal Bradford during the draft or ensuing offseason, the sources said Bradford is prepared to prove to the Eagles that he’s a franchise quarterback. He’ll embrace the challenge if he remains in Philadelphia, sources said, despite being upset that the team surrendered draft assets that could have helped him.

    ..

    .Sam Bradford (AP)
    Sam Bradford (AP)

    As for the Eagles’ current quarterback designs, a league source said the team is ready to essentially redshirt a rookie quarterback next season, allowing him to learn and grow inside coach Doug Pederson’s offense. That player will likely be North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz, who is expected to be on the board for the Eagles at No. 2 overall. The Eagles carrying three quarterbacks – Bradford, Chase Daniel and Wentz – appears to be a requirement to secure a patient growth plan for Wentz. Should Bradford go down with injury next season, the Eagles would need a capable backup as an insurance policy against Wentz being forced into a starting role before he’s ready. That’s why the design calls for both veterans to remain.

    Bradford hasn’t taken any steps to disrupt that, sources said. That’s not a surprising development, considering he’s set to earn $22 million guaranteed no matter what happens next season. Indeed, an argument could be made that Bradford is in an ideal situation. Not only does he have another highly paid season to prove to NFL teams that he remains an attractive commodity, but a strong season could turn him into an attractive trade chip in the 2017 offseason. Should that happen, it’s likely any team looking to acquire Bradford would want to negotiate a long-term extension beforehand.

    Interesting…we will see…we will see!

    ..
    It’s also not out of the realm of possibility that Bradford plays well enough to convince the Eagles to keep him for the length of his full two-year contract. While it’s assumed Philadelphia will want to turn to Wentz in 2017, the Eagles will surely keep their options open if Bradford suddenly excels and creates a situation similar to the San Diego Chargers in 2004. That year, Drew Brees broke through as an elite player for the Chargers, despite the team having acquired Philip Rivers, the fourth overall pick in that season’s draft. While most assumed Brees’ 2004 season would be his last with the Chargers, the team ended up using the franchise tag to keep him an additional year, forcing Rivers to spend an additional season waiting in the wings.

    That situation in San Diego provides some unique perspective into how next season’s quarterback mix could work for the Eagles. Most forget that in Rivers’ rookie season, the Chargers had both Brees and Doug Flutie ahead of Rivers on the depth chart. In Year 2, Rivers ascended to the backup spot behind Brees. Rivers then took the team over in 2006, after Brees departed to the New Orleans Saints via a lucrative free-agent contract.

    While holding Wentz back for two seasons might not be the ideal situation for the Eagles, an NFL source said the team is more concerned with fostering his growth while also being competitive. Having Bradford and Daniel on the roster allows for both of those desires to be served in the interim. And if Wentz’s growth curve is more accelerated than expected, the Eagles will surely have opportunities to deal their veterans.

    There is no indication that anyone is under pressure to break up the Eagles’ quarterback depth chart. Both Pederson and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have strong job security, and there is every reason to believe that team owner Jeffrey Lurie has played a part in each step of this plan. At the moment, Bradford has $22 million guaranteed to keep him from forcing an issue and the motivation of history to believe he can still control his future

    • koolbreeze…Once again, you are completely baffled, confused, stumbling and bumbling!!!
      Poor koolbreeze, you don’t know what to do…still in shock.

      Lol, what’s the purpose of posting this story. Last week after the trade you were on here railing about how the Eagles have to trade Bradford.
      I said no, the best thing is to let Bradford be the bridge QB, if he plays well then he will be an asset. Now you post this article that is stating what I said, which was antithetical to what you felt should happen regarding Bradford.
      You’re all over the place koolbreeze, completely obfuscated and in a daze..lean back and hush Smokescreen..you were wrong!

      That story shows your desperation..still grasping at straws, holding out hope, groping like a blind man in the dark, searching for a glimmer of light in a collasped cave…smdh! You are looking for anything to salvage what you blustered on here about relating to Sam Bradford..LMAO!!!

  50. EHL, you are baffled and befuddled from all of your flip-flopping buffoonery…you are illogical.

    First your were bashing the Coach and the Eagles for keeping Sam Bradford, who you attack over and over again. Coach Pederson had no credibility according to you with his assessment of the position with Bradford…now…suddenly ‘flip-flop’…Coach Pederson has become the paragon of perfection since they have made the stupid move up that you agree with ironically because you see it as replacing Bradford!

    Now- ‘flip-flop’, you are insisting on what the Coach says…

    LMAO….

    The reality is simple and my position has been consistent. I dont agree with the Eagles evaluation of these Quarterbacks. They are both projects who are NOT cant-miss NFL prospects.
    In saying that they are not ‘cant-miss’ prospects, no one is saying that it is impossible for them to have success. Russell Wilson was not a ‘cant-miss’ prospect-which is why he was drafted so low-Dak Prescott may go on to a better NFL career than both Wentz and Goff…who knows.
    My point is simple. the Eagles have made a decision, therefore, I want to follow the logical course of that decision. To give up a ton of draft picks…to move up means you believe these are cant-miss prospects.

    As such, it makes no sense to keep Bradford, and you get any rookie you draft as a ‘cant miss’ prospect better by giving him reps. You play the kid, you let him develop on the job, you believe in his character, work ethic, and skills…you let him play.

    I’m consistent…I said to you earlier if Jameis Winston was in this draft and we had a chance to get him…bye-bye Sam!!

    I said that BEFORE the trade. So the Eagles believe that Wentz and Goff are can’t miss…Bye-Bye Sam…my position is the same

    Not flip-flopping around…

    • koolbreeze, you’re lying again. Post one post where I bashed Doug pederson for keeping Sam Bradford. Just like you said I liked the danny Watkins and MSII pick. Still waiting on you to post that too. You lie to try to make yourself look good. You are a complete fraud. I just proved you wrong two days ago. You said I was flip flopping on Sam Bradford after the trade when I said keep him as a bridge. I posted that I posted the same plan on March 10th..proving that I did not presto chango change my mind after the trade up to two. You make claims, accusations..but can never prove them because you intentionally lie! You have no credibility! FLIP FLOPPER!!

      • koolbreeze, just in case you forgot about the lie you posted in reference to me flip flopping, let me remind you.

        CTFU…what a lame flip-flopper you are EHL
        You whined for months about Bradford being on the team
        You cried like a baby never wanting to give the Coach a chance when he didn’t see it your way
        You stomped, moaned and bitched about Bradford
        Now, presto…you are a Pederson supporter
        Bullshit…you are a flip-flopper
        I am being consistent…I support the team…I have declared openly and taken a position…
        Like I said…pass the mustard on the crow I will eat if Wentz turns out to be a franchise QB that leads us to the Super Bowl
        I would duck, bitch, run and hide like you do on here EHL when you are wrong….
        I’m still here and I’m not cutting and running because I was wrong about the Eagles moves on the QB position. I didn’t expect that a team would spend $34 million dollars in guaranteed money and THEN trade a bunch of picks to draft a Division 1-AA player who has only thrown 615 passes in his career and is slow reading defenses…
        In the history of the NFL, no one has ever made this kind of move, you nor anyone else can point to a situation like this one…its unique.
        So now with the new situation, I’m stating the obvious and being consistent with what I said before…I’m being consistent because I told you EHL directly
        “If Jameis Winston was available to the Eagles to get somehow-Bye Bye Sam”
        Now Carson Wentz is the QB the Coach wants…he believes he is a Franchise QB…
        Bye Bye Sam…we need draft picks, we dont need a disgruntled vet on the team, we dont need any QB controversies, we need to take a chance now on Sam getting hurt and we dont get anything for him since we are going with the rookie as the future Franchise QB.
        We need the rookie to develop like what we saw in Jameis Winston…a rookie who got better as the season progressed.
        Let the rookie take his lumps, get better, and lead us to a SuperBowl
        Or let the rookie take his lumps, fall apart, and we fire Howie and Pederson and start all over again.
        Now they do something that you like…presto…you are suddenly a Eagles fan…

        You are a complete joke…the joke of gcobb..aka…clownbreeze!!!

    • Koolbreeze let me bust your bubble again and catch you in another lie. This is what I discussed regarding drafting and sitting the QB on March 10. Then you replied.

      The Eagles are perfectly set to take a QB at 8. They have Bradford as the competitive QB to hold things down until he is gone, then you have Daniel to teach the rook the offense. No player the Eagles draft at 8 is going to get them to the playoffs..that falls on Bradford. The o line will be better and the receivers should not have a worse year than last. It would ha e been a disaster if we took Manziel..but I said he could not play….Wentz and Goff can play in this league, and a couple of years of watching will only help like it did for Aaron Rodgers. Just because Johnny football( the disaster you liked) blew up in your face does not mean that other QB’s will suffer the same fate. The fact is kool whether you like it or not the Eagles have to draft a realistic possible QB of the future..and that is not a late round prospect. Bradford can be cut after this year…the Eagles have to have a viable option in the wings to be the franchise QB, i.e. long term solution.

      EHL…the Eagles are not wasting a high pick on Wentz , Goff, or Lynch…that would be the height of foolishness. They grabbed Daniels to protect against injury to Bradford…the thing Bradford has to prove is can he stay healthy. If he stays healthy he is your franchise QB and the Eagles are trying to win…now…
      If a QB they like …I’m hearing they like Dak Prescott …is available in the 4th or 5th round…they will take a flier on him and let him learn…but spending a high draft pick at #8 on one of these low rated QB is simply ridiculous.
      If Bradford stays healthy…and that is a big if…but if he stays healthy and the Eagles make the playoffs over the next couple of years he will be resigned to another big mega deal
      Book it!
      EHL, theJohnny Manziel argument is lame…he would have been a good pick and fit in the Eagles offense under Chip Kelly…but no one can predict a guy being an alcoholic..are you going to set here and tell me that you have been %100 right on every prospect that you predicted could play?
      You and I know that’s bullshit and no one on here is right all of the time.
      None of the Qb’s in this draft are projected as ‘cant-miss’ prospects…these guys are not in the class of an Andrew Luck, Mariotta, or Winston…none of them…Bradford is the franchise QB and they got Daniels as the backup and insurance against Bradford getting hurt…and they will pick up .
      Face…and let it go…Bradford is the guy…bottom line and the only thing that will probably get him out of the job is injury. Short of that he is going to play, he will play well…the question is will the other aspects of the team perform on a high level…We win the division this year…Bradford takes us to the playoffs…he will get a new megacontract…
      Book it!…just like I told you and predicted all along…
      Obviously I wrote that before the trade. No flip flopping on my part…it’s what I believed made sense…sit down son..I just schooled you!

  51. hmmmmm I wonder why Sam hasnt requested a trade. it probably has something to do with the fact that no other team wants him. B

    God damn chips a moron

    • If chip cookies was being honest when he said he turned down a first for Sam then he’s an absolute jackass, literally dumb as fuck. Sanchez is no worse than Sam, matter of fact his resume says he’s better. Fkn chip man , what a fraud.

  52. Kool u really need to stop with the baffled, befuddled, confused and fool stuff man. Nobody has been more wrong about their opinions on this site and at qb then you. If the people you describe with those adjectives and those peoples are those things you call them then what’s that make you.

  53. And you didn’t flip flop at all when you went on record as saying Howie is a moron to singing his praises after he signed one of the biggest qb busts ever…

  54. I have this image of Koolidiot in one of those glass tubes where all the dollar bills get blown around and the hapless contestant scramblesa around grasping at the $$.

    Except he’s blindfolded.

    And instead of dollar bills, straws are swirling around him.

    Koolbreeze in the centre, blindfolded and flailing madly at the straws, trying to catch one that he can desperately hold on to.

  55. Just in case anyone (Koolbreeze) has a glimmer of false hope that the Eagles will trade out of 2 if Wentz is drafted first..let me crush your dreams for you..as Howie addresses that scenario!

    Howie Roseman: Eagles have to have a franchise quarterback

    Posted by Michael David Smith on April 25, 2016, 8:45 AM EDT

    AP
    Eagles Executive V.P. of Football Operations Howie Roseman says the decision to trade up to the No. 2 overall pick in the draft was all about a belief that the way to win in the NFL is to get a long-term franchise quarterback.

    “You have to have a winning franchise quarterback to compete over a long period of time,” Roseman said this morning on PFT Live. “One impact player at that position can change a team.”

    So will that quarterback be Cal’s Jared Goff or North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz? Roseman said the Eagles will be happy with taking whichever quarterback the Rams don’t take first overall.

    “You have to be comfortable with both guys at one and two,” Roseman said. “You don’t have that control when you’re picking second. We’re very comfortable with both quarterbacks, and that was the reason we were able to make this trade.”

    Although Roseman said he discussed the trade with owner Jeffrey Lurie, coach Doug Pederson and others in the organization, ultimately it was Roseman alone who had to make the call.

    “This decision was mine,” Roseman said. “At the end of the day, this was my decision.”

    Roseman said the Eagles had previously identified 10 players they liked a lot and were worried none would still be there at No. 13, so they traded up to the Dolphins’ first-round pick at No. 8. At that point they saw the opportunity to move up to No. 2.

    “There are unique opportunities where you have to take chances to be great,” Roseman said. “One great player can change a team.”

    With the Rams appearing poised to draft Goff, Eagles fans have to hope that one great player is Wentz.

  56. There’s no rules on how a NFL team should use a rookie quarterback, and there’s no such thing as a can’t miss rookie quarterback.

    koolbreez, you talk like Winston and Mariota are proof of how to use a high first round quarterback…. Clearly your experience doesn’t go back very far… Throwing a rookie quarterback in as a starter (no matter where he was picked) is not always the norm… There have been many that started their career just like McNabb… Used sparingly for the first couple months of the season.

    Another thing – Winston and Mariota have not proven themselves to be quality NFL franchise quarterbacks yet… Neither of them started off as well as RG3 or Sam Bradford – and we see how those losers turned-out….

  57. the mother fucker gets it

    Carson Wentz on #Eagles fans:”Donovan McNabb.He’s a legend,theyd even get on him.Thats just the way they are in Philadelphia.I’d embrace it”

  58. DAMN WENTZ IS A WRITER TOO… KOOL TAKE NOTES, THIS IS HAVING IT, NOT DOING THE MAKING IT RAIN SIGN ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD, NOT BEING BIG MAN ON CAMPUS, NOT HAVING TMZ TWEET UR EVERY MOVEMENT. I FUCKING LOVE THIS KID ALREADY

    You don’t get through winters with an average temperature of 12.8° without being a certain kind of tough — the cracked-skin-dried-blood kind of tough.

    That toughness comes in handy in a place like North Dakota. You see, up there, jamming your numb fingers against someone’s ice-cold helmet happens every practice. Getting decked on the cement-like dirt is just how a play ends.

    And here’s the thing: I love it.

    Because in North Dakota, we don’t care for flash or dazzle. That’s not our game. We don’t do things the fanciest way. We do them the right way.

    Going through the draft process, you find yourself answering a lot of the same questions over and over. I get it. This is basically a very long, very public job interview. But the question that seems to come up the most is one that almost makes me laugh at this point:

    Carson, coming from North Dakota, are you worried about playing against tougher competition in the NFL?

    There’s this belief that I’m at some sort of disadvantage coming into the league because of where I’m from. But if you get to know me, you’ll understand that being from North Dakota isn’t a disadvantage. Not even close. In fact, having been raised in North Dakota is probably one of my greatest strengths.

    Let me tell you right now — football is football, no matter if it’s played in the Rose Bowl or on a dusty field in Bismarck. Those warm southern states may produce the most NFL talent, but there’s a special brand of football going on up north.

    When I started out in the Bismarck youth football league, I was a running back. Now, I wasn’t a shifty, finesse running back. I was an up-the-gut, everyone-knows-where-the-ball-is-going, punch-you-in-the-mouth running back. Since I was a kid, I’ve had the mentality that if you’re going to tackle me … well, I’m going to make sure it hurts. I was pretty skinny — lanky even — but you can get away with that when you play hard and aren’t afraid of contact. And contact was always my favorite part of the game — still is. It was kind of funny, honestly. I was this crazy, string-bean kid trying to truck kids into the end zone. And a lot of the time, I did.

    Growing up, everyone was always outside competing in just about every sport you can imagine. If I wasn’t the best at a sport I took that as a challenge. I was never scared of putting in the work to get better. And to keep me on my toes, I had the best motivation you could ask for: an older brother who was better than me at just about everything.

    When I was a kid, I didn’t necessarily dream about winning Super Bowls or national championships. I wanted to beat Zach.

    Baseball, football, checkers, number of plates consumed at a buffet — it did not matter what we were doing, everything was a competition. Zach was my benchmark. Knowing he was successful in baseball, football and hockey, and given that he’s three years older than me, I knew that if I could match up with him and even sometimes beat him, then I must be pretty darn good myself.

    Granted, I didn’t beat him a whole lot.

    But I never quit trying to replace him as our household’s best athlete, even if it meant begging him for rematches constantly. Some of my competitiveness is God-given — but a whole lot of it was developed during weekend wiffle ball games with big bro.

    When I got to high school, my focus really turned to football. I always wanted to stay on the field, so I would change positions all the time. One day I would be at corner, another day I’d be returning kicks — wherever I was needed, I played. I saw the field a lot, but as a freshman, I wasn’t much to look at. I came in at 5′ 8″ and about 125 pounds (depending on what I ate for lunch that day). But playing all those different positions as a kid made me grasp the game so much better. The best way to understand the mentality of a safety is to play snaps there. When I eventually hit my growth spurt, they moved me to quarterback, and I stuck.

    In North Dakota, people generally choose one of three favorite teams: the Broncos, the Packers or the Vikings.

    That preference is usually inherited through your family, but whatever allegiance you do have, it’s taken pretty seriously. I grew up a Vikings fan. Jerseys, hats, posters on my wall — all of that. But despite that, I always loved watching Brett Favre. I just admired the way he played football. Nobody ever questioned how serious or competitive he was, and the way he showed off those qualities is what made me love him. The guy would get licked and then get back up, throw a 40-yard bomb and run around the field jumping and laughing like a little kid. He wasn’t out there to manage the game. He was a gunslinger. The guy flat out made plays. That’s the quarterback that I wanted to be.

    Playing in high school taught me a lot, but it also had its fair share of disappointment. Every year, we made it to the semifinals of the state playoffs — and lost. Even worse, three out of the four years we lost to the same team, Fargo High.

    There’s no love lost between the cities of Fargo and Bismarck, I can assure you that. God, we wanted to beat those guys.

    My senior year I really thought we had them, but they ended up scoring a touchdown with six seconds left in the game to go ahead by one. That’s still the most heartbreaking loss of my life.

    In high school, I learned how to lead a team for the first time. And in college, I learned how to win championships.

    North Dakota State football is a perfect representation of the grit and work ethic that makes where I’m from a special place.

    Our offense might have reminded you a bit of Alabama or Stanford.We were going to start out running the ball, and then we were going to run it again, and then when you think we couldn’t possibly do it again, we were going to run some more. And when you’re sick of getting dirty with us, we’ll get heavy personnel and run with power and move you guys. We love to bring the boom. By the time we ran play-action and went over the top for a touchdown, your defense was just relieved they didn’t have to swap paint with us for one more play. Then, the next time we got the ball, we would show you completely different sets. We’d start slinging it around like Baylor. It was tough to defend.

    The best way to learn how to win is to be around winners. There wasn’t one game at North Dakota State where the entire team did not prepare with the mentality that we’re going to win. Even if we were playing a power five school that had us completely outmatched on paper, we expected to win.

    And we pretty much always did.

    The positive results were almost entirely because of the work put in by guys before they ever set foot on the field. Probably 90% or more of the incoming freshmen at NDSU redshirt. And during that year, the staff makes it clear just how importantit is for them to develop. We may be an FCS school, but our strength and conditioning program is as rigorous and productive as any other school in the country. And everyone buys into it. We approach it with that distinct North Dakotan mentality. We weren’t upset about not playing early, or waking up at 5 a.m. to lift. We were excited about getting bigger and better. Because we knew that when it was our team, we’d be ready.

    By the time I took over the starting quarterback job as a junior, I was fully prepared. And I was done losing in the semifinals. My first year as a starter, we won our FCS playoff semifinal 35–3. My senior year we won in the semifinals 33–7. We won the championship both years, just like we expected.

    So am I worried about whether I can have the same success at the next level? Of course not. I’m excited to show people exactly what I can do.

    After competing at All-Star games and the combine, I know that I have much more in common with guys who played FBS football than I have differences. Heck, we even beat a few of their teams while I was in college. Like I said before, football is football. At North Dakota State, I was taught to recognize the same zone pressures, blitzes, stunts and twists as the other guys in the draft. Our offense would run the ball with no receivers and then spread it out wide with five guys. We did it all.

    The speed will be an adjustment, but it is for everybody, whether you’re coming from the SEC or Division III. I’m as ready for it as I can possibly be.

    But I still approach the game of football the same way I did when I was a 5′ 8″ beanstalk flying around the field in Bismarck. The difference now is that I’m 6′ 5″, 237 pounds, and have been carefully developed into one of the best football prospects in America.

    So what do I say to all the people who wonder if I’m ready for the NFL?

    I’ve been getting ready my whole life.

    Contradicting reports, last night a report comes out that Sam does not want to be traded, now Schefter reports that Sammy ‘Seven’ Sleeves wants to
    traded. LMAO..the drama.

    • I just cant see sam saying/doing this so question is – is it his agent or is it the eagles making it up

      • If it’s him or his agent, I would let Sammy find a trade partner, I need a second round pick back, or a 3rd and a futures pick at 2 or 3. If it’s the Eagles putting this out there..then they are greasing the skids to trade him anyway.
        Go Eagles!!!

        • id be stunned if its anything higher than a 3rd. but looking at past trades and what teams got (ie cutler, bledsoe, and carson palmer) i could see more

  63. NFL draft insider Tony Pauline passes along “a belief” that the league is “pressuring” the Rams to keep their quarterback target quiet in an effort to “build speculation” regarding the No. 1 overall pick.
    “The NFL Draft has become such big business that the league hopes to build speculation around who will ultimately end up as the top selection,” wrote Pauline. Unfortunately for the league, the secret appears to be out. The Rams are fully expect to drafted Jared Goff, leaving Carson Wentz for the Eagles.

  66. Whoever drafts Jared Goff will be getting a great rookie quarterback… It’s very close between him and Carson Wentz, in my mind.

    I would prefer Wentz over Jared Goff, but I would not be too disappointed with Goff…

  67. Breaking News..US Supreme Court has reinstated Tom Brady’s suspension for deflate gate.
    Also, Johnny Manziel has been indicted on assault charges stemming from an alleged attack on his ex girlfriend.

  68. IF SAM IS GOING TO BE TRADED HE WILL 10000000000% BE TRADED BY THURSDAY AS HIS DEAD CAP THIS YEAR IF TRADED PRE DRAFT WILL BE 11 MILL FOR US. AND IF ITS A POST DRAFT TRADE ITS 5.5 DEAD THIS YEAR AND ANOTHER 5.5 DEAD NEXT YEAR. NO SENSE IN SPREADING IT OUT OVER 2 YEARS AT ALL

    ALSO THE ACQUIRING TEAM WOULD HAVE TO BE ABLE TO ABSORB 7 MILL CAP HIT IT THIS YEAR FOR SAM

    • That’s sounds more like it on in terms of Bradford’s Deal
      The Jets can afford Bradford, but I don’t think they are interested
      The Bronco’s I don’t think they can squeeze him in under the Cap Situation
      The Browns are not interested as they signed RG3 to a 2 Year Deal and will Draft QB in this Upcoming Draft in the 2nd Round

      The 49ers are about the only Team which would be a fit for him and that’s only if they get rid of Kaerpernick first, who is now being linked to the Bills to reunite with OC Greg Roman…

      I see Bradford as an Eagle for 2016 Season, though it will be awkward for him, the Team and us Fans…

    • CORRECTION THAT TRADE WOULD HAVE TO GO DOWN BEFORE 6/1 NOT DRAFT NIGHT

  69. You have to get rid of Sam…cant have a disgruntled vet poisoning your locker room…leading your team…eat the money and trade him…try to get a pick back for him.

    • just makes no sense to me to put this out there. like i dont see any team in the nfl wanting him

      people will say the jets – but why? fitzpatrick is better than him, and his teammates love fitz and want him back. and their back up geno is basically the same as sam.

      the browns? i mean i guess but why? they are committed to rebuilding through the draft and have rg3 and mccown who are both probably better than him..

      I could see the texans but they just gave osweiler some ridiculous amount of money like a bunch of fools so they are too committed to trade for him

      denver? eh i guess maybe denver could want him but i dont think elways a retard so theyre out.. or maybe theyre so desperate they would? idk but i dont see it

      49ers – well they have the dumbass coach who just may be dumb enough to not believe his own eyes last year and get him. san fran has a ton of draft picks and an imbecile coach so if he goes anywhere i guess its there. they just gotta trade krapnick first. san fran has to be up to something. they let krapernick visit denver. they have a trillion draft picks and didnt make a play for wentz/golf. hopefully chipper gonna hook us up

  70. Jeff McLane tweeted that Tom Condon must got something in the works where another team would do something and give him up

    You got give Sam up…get him off of the team and lets go with the kid they draft..

  71. How can Sam Bradford poison a locker room? The man doesn’t speak. Sits alone.

    His teammates had to call him up to invite themselves over to play Xbox?

    Koolidiot still in the glass case as the straws swirl around him….

    • Vinniedafool…

      Sam Bradford was the leader of the offense…even Malcolm Jenkins talked about how vocal Bradford came…he took the leadership

      The situation is falling apart, so an idiot like Vinnydafool cant see it

      There is heavy talk that the Rams will be taking Wentz leaving the Eagles holding the bag with Goff a spread QB, who never played under center, never had a fullback or tight end, playing in a gimmick offense…

      A disaster because the Eagles made a dumb move in going up in the draft for these two overrated, hyped up QB’s so we might be getting NOT a ‘franchise’ QB but a flat out bust who didn’t really do much in college…he lost all of the big games…

      Goff wasn’t even first team Pac-12…

      We are messed up…big time!!

      • MALCOLM JENKINS SAID SAM WAS A LEADER – HAAAAAAAAAAAAA DEFENSIVE GUYS WERENT EVEN ALLOWED IN THE OFFENSIVE MEETINGS UNDER CHIP. PLEASE.

        THERE WAS 1 PERSON SAYING WENTZ COULD BE GOING 1ST OVERALL LAST WEEK. 1 PERSON OUT OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE REPORTING. AND NOW THAT 1 PERSON CHANGED HIS STANCE AND IS SAYING ITS GOLFF GOING 1. SO NOW EVERY REPORTER IS SAYING ITS GOFF NOW. SO NO THERE IS NO HEAVY TALK

        YOU SOUND LIKE AN IDIOT

        YOU LITERALLY DO NO RESEARCH AND JUST TALK… YOURE WRONG WAY TO MUCH TO BE MAKING THESE PREDICTIONS…

        FALL BACK

      • There has never been a bigger gimmick spread offense than the one at Oregon which Mariota came out of. You never bitched about the spread offense then…now it’s a problem. Your agenda is so clear it’s laughable.

  72. I’m not sure anyone wants Sam Bradford… If the Eagles can’t trade him, I guess he will have to retire – or play….

    Sam signed a contract…. He has absolutely no leg to stand on… I would let him sit-out the season and not pay him a dime.

    • Seriously after the sub par career filled with injuries how can he be mad we are making sure we get a franchise qb, shut the hell up u down syndrome looking fool and ball the fuck out, that’s how u beat this Sammy, not by being a bitch in requesting trades,I hope this is bs and its just the media being dumb as usual

  73. What an absolute waste Bradford was. Give up a 2. Give up a QB who actually won games for the Eagles.

    Now he’s demanding out, meaning his “trade value” which was almost nil to begin with is dropping further.

    But….Eagles can’t just cut him because his cap hit being cut jumps from 12 to 18…Eagles only currently have 11 million in space….adding 6 by cutting sideways leaves them with only 5…not enough for their rookies!

    So Eagles now being squeezed by this loser. Hopefully they’ll get something, but every team in the league knows the Eagles now in a “n-win” situation.

    What a disaster. For 7 stupid wins….and the 7th an unwelcome win at that when ole Sideways turned in his best performance of the year.

    That’s a lot Sideways.

  74. lol Sam Bradford has been given shit from day one of his NFL career. Put a little roadblock in his way and the bitch wants a trade. He is no leader, nor is he worth the trouble. Get rid of this no heart having bum once and for all. He has a real set of balls bitching about this with the W/L record this bum has. Not a leader, not worth a damn. Anything Howie can get for this guy is a win plain and simple. Eagles will be a better team by subtraction, believe that.

  75. hmmmmmmmm with brady out the 1st 4 games it wouldnt shock me if they made a play for him. 7 mill for a backup qb who will start the 1st 4 games, then cut him after the year.

  76. If Sam quits now he will be in rare company….

    Sam will have the fewest wins of any quarterback ever drafted with the 1st pick of the 1st round – with the exception of Jamarcus Russell, David Carr, and Tim Couch.

    That’s going back to 1964…..

  77. All kind of stuff is coming out now…

    Bradford thought he was being given a fair shot at being the franchise Qb of the team…he justified the short term deal because of his injury history…and the Eagles made up for it by giving him more than what he would have gotten if they franchised him…

    Like I said when the deal was done…fair deal for both sides…

    But now Bradford feels he was burnt…so now he is a poison..welcome to the NFL Coach Pederson….

    I wonder how Sam’s teammates are responding to this…the organization is not inspiring a lot of confidence at all…its all messed up!!

    • koolbreeze, you are wondering what Sham’s teammates are responding to this..well here is a tweet Chase Daniel just put out after practice..which Sam was a no show:

      Great first day Phase 2 of the off-season program….offense looked sharp as ever! Still a long way to go, but a great start! #FlyEaglesFly

      LMAO, don’t sound to bad to me!!!

  78. Bucky Brooks tweets..Sam’s request to be traded lets the world know about his competitive nature..or lack thereof! That sums Sam up perfectly.

    Shammy Bradfraud is used to having everything handed to him, afraid of competition and do not want to earn anything. Sam Bradford has done nothing in the NFL to demand or feel a sense of entitlement. He is soft!!!

    • he always was soft, frail and awful. everyone knew it at eagles hq, throughout nfl circles, the casual fans, the wives of football of fans and kids everywhere. everyone knew he was shit except for 1 man and only 1 man. lmfao. koolbreeze always last to know

    • Eaglehasl~, It’s true… Look at what Brett Favre did when the Packers drafted Aaron Rodgers…. He keep Rodgers on the bench for 3 years. And Favre was 36 years-old – Rodgers was a much bigger threat to Favre…

  79. CTFU….

    Dumb mhenski

    There were all kind of reports from defensive and offensive players last year about Sam Bradford’s leadership Idiot ass!!!

    Matthews, Johnson, Ertz all made references to Bradford’s leadership in the locker room…all kinds of reports came out about half time speeches and his vocal leadership!!

    You are a complete and utter idiot ass m-multiplepersonality-racist-pervert-henski!

    • kool, that was last year, this is this year. The fact is so what, players like Ertz, Matthews, Jason Peters and DeMeco Ryans came out and spoke highly of Nick Foles. Who cares, players do it, it’s not as if this is something unique to Sam Bradford…grasping, clutching, clawing at anything to prove how special Sam is..ROTF..LMAO!!!

      • idiot ass – haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa what are you 4? there was that time when sam pumped up his team in the showers -haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. i dont believe PR quotes i believe what i see with my eyes. and there was not 1 time bradturd led on the field or on the sidelines last year.

        STOP IT WITH THE EXCUSES OF A COLOSSAL NFL BUST AND AN AWFUL TRADE BY KELLY U SOUND DUMB

        • AND YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY

          IF YOU A LEADER BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND NOT ON THE FIELD YEA YOURE A LEADER ALL RIGHT A CHEER LEADER

          • MORE HOT TAKES FROM KOOL

            GOFF CANT PLAY IN THE NFL BECAUSE HE PLAYED IN A GIMMICK OFFENSE

            GET YOUR GUY CHIP BUST A MOVE, MARCUS MARRIOTA IS A LEGEND

    • IM AN IDIOT YET YOU ON RECORD SAYING:

      SHALL I CONTINUE.

      YOURE THE DUMBEST MOFO IN HERE.

  80. Apparently SAMs ego is weaker than his knees.

  81. HOT TAKES

    Brandon Lee Gowton ‏@BrandonGowton 1h1 hour ago

    Reminder that Sam Bradford’s fabled #SevenGameStretch was only the 21st best #SevenGameStretch of any QB last year.

  82. Brandon Lee Gowton ‏@BrandonGowton 2h2 hours ago

    So much for Bradford being a “leader.” True leader doesn’t abandon their team like this.

  83. wow Kool you really are going down with the ship lol. Do me a favor and forget the life jacket lol.

  84. EHL, you are so delusional….it is well known that Players went to management and asked them to resign Sam Bradford…The Players believed that Sam would give them a chance to win…
    It is one of the reasons why the Eagles gave the guy $22 million in guaranteed money
    Donovan McNabb made an excellent point today in saying that the two QB’s were overrated…and now you are bringing one of them into a toxic situation with a disgruntled starting QB and rookie Head Coach…
    Sam has to go…we are stuck like chuck
    You are going to have to start the rookie and get rid of Sam…basically pay him to go away because caustic situations like this can destroy your team
    Dumb and Dumber…it is stupid that the Eagles management didn’t have the foresight to see this coming….

    • Koolbreeze, yeah I’m delusional, says Mr. Smokescreen who repeatedly stated and believed Sam was the future franchise because Ertz and Matthews went out to Oklahoma to toss some balls around..and because he got a massive, juggernaut, mega contract for a hefty two years…Kool, just give it up, lean back, come back under another name and hit the reset button. You’re done..up in smokescreens!!!
      CTFU and ROTF @ you you poor soul! No one has NEVER EVER been more wrong on this site than you!

      • I CAN SEE IT NOW. JASON PETERS, KELCE, LANE JOHNSON, JORDAN MATTHEWS, NELSON A…. ALL OF THEM ARM AND ARM MARCH INTO HOWIES OFFENSE AND DEMAND HE RESIGN SAM BRADFORD. SIGN SAM OR WE OUT. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

        “it is well known that Players went to management and asked them to resign Sam Bradford”

        HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    • Funny – I just listened to an interview from Dec. 2013 of Donovan McNabb on the sprotshub… A local STL reporter asked Donovan what he thought of Sam Bradford… At the time Sam had just tore his ACL… Donovan said, “I think it’s time for the Rams to move in a different direction”. “You can’t count on Sam to be your franchise quarterback”.

      As we all know, the Rams did move in a different direction.

      The point is – I have never heard a kind word from Donovan about any young quarterback…. ever..

  85. “it is well known that Players went to management and asked them to resign Sam Bradford”

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  86. HILARIOUS ON THE DAY SAM QUITS ON HIS TEAM, STARTS POUTING AND REFUSES TO PRACTICE

    KOOL UP IN HERE SAYING HE A LEADER

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    • Sam needs to take a page out of Brett Favre’s or Drew Brees’ book. When their replacements were drafted in the first round, they did not bitch up and look to cut and run in the hills. They let their play in the face of adversity speak for them..not their agents. Sam needs to go se the Wizard of Oz for some heart…freakin tenderfoot soft hearted slumped should Sham Brafraud…smdh. he’s quitting on his teammates who demanded that he be re-signed. Along with the coaches who were like please..please re-sign Sam Bradford..CTFU!!!

  87. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    ON THE DAY SAM BRADFORD DECIDED TO CRY

    Great first day Phase 2 of the off-season program….offense looked sharp as ever! Still a long way to go, but a great start! #FlyEaglesFly
    — Chase Daniel (@ChaseDaniel) April 25, 2016

    BEST THEYVE LOOKED SO FAR AND SAM WASNT THERE. WHO WOULDVE THOUGHT?

  88. Come on now guys, we need to have sympathy for those that are simple minded. Reality is hard for some to accept, even though everyone else saw this a year ago and many miles away. Lol toxic….Dude comes out of college and is given the starting job and 50 million….first time he is challenged he pouts and leaves….WEAK. Stop the delusion, get off your meds and join the rest of us. Better yet keep it up, makes me laugh a lot.

    Anybody else feel that Sam Bradford doesn’t have the clout to demand a trade?

    LMFAO

  90. Sam Bradford Has “The Eye of The Tiger”. It’s just always pointed the wrong way!!!

  91. Twig, slumpy shoulders, head bowed, excuse machine

    And now……

    Afraid of a 23 year old rookie.

  92. Jeee-zus.

    What a pussy. But damn he’s put the Eagles in a bind. He can’t be cut as it will mean Eagles won’t have anough room left to sign rookies (let alone Cox) and can he even be traded???

    His value was at nil…lowered when he demanded out…and has now lowered even more with the league now realizing what a tiny little fraidy-can the guys is…won’t even compete against Chase Daniels and a rookie.

    Again….runs away from competing against Chase Daniel and a rookie.

    What coach wants a chicken-shit like that leading his team?

    Koolidiot….do you play in a flag football league somewhere….we may have found your new QB!

    Gotta be a way to suspend this guy. Let him sit all year in Oaklahoma playing his xbox. All he wants to do anyway.

    And if there is trouble with the salary, just put a couple bins out front of the link on gamedays. Drop in a dollar to pay Sam’s salary to keep him at home. Will collect that $22 mil easy.
