The Future Of Fletcher Cox As An Eagle

With the 2021 NFL season approaching, Eagles Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox is at a crossroads in his Birds career because of four key factors: his huge yearly salary, his declining production on the field, the Birds unsettled quarterback situation and the team’s new coaching staff.

With the departure of quarterback Carson Wentz, Cox is now the highest paid Eagles with guaranteed salaries of $23.9 million dollars in 2021 and $23.8 million dollars in 2022, despite the fact that there haven’t been glowing reports about his play coming from the Eagles NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia.  Don’t get me wrong, he’s still a Pro Bowl level defensive tackle who requires consistent double teams, but his production has been going the wrong way since the Eagles Super Bowl Championship victory in 2017-18.

In 2020, opposing offensive lines continued to double team Cox every chance they got.  He was still able to register 6.5 quarterback sacks and 9 tackles for loss.  Unfortunately for Cox, the Rams Aaron Donald, is the guy whom he is compared to, and the Los Angeles dynamo more than doubled Cox’ pass rushing stats with 13.5 quarterback sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss in 2020.

A few weeks ago, Philadelphia Inquirer Eagles reporter Jeff McLane, wrote an article about the perception amongst the Birds front office that his production is half of Donald’s because Cox is a far less motivated worker than the Rams’ undersized superstar.  One of the criticisms McLane reported on was number 91’s habit of taking plays off.   Bottomline, there are Eagles football people who don’t think the team is getting what they paid for from Cox.

Due to the Eagles quarterback situation, I believe the Birds are in a rebuilding process whether they want to admit it or not.  It’s very simple to me, NFL teams that don’t know how their quarterback is going to play are in a rebuilding process.  You can’t win in the National Football League without a quality quarterback, who can make all the throws, read coverages and stay away from turnovers.  If Jalen Hurts blossoms this year and shows everybody that he’s going to be a star quarterback in this league, then the Eagles will be out of the rebuilding process and they will immediately start stocking a roster to try to win right now.

On the other hand, if the second-year signal caller struggles and the Birds realize that the quarterback who will lead them back to the top is not on the roster yet, they will be tempted to start listening to trade offers for their talented veterans.  This will affect the future of Cox with the Eagles.

The perennial Pro Bowler is 30 years old and qualifies as one of the team’s most valuable players, who still has the ability to take over a game.  Nothing disrupts a quarterback like pressure up the middle and that’s what Cox is able to produce when he is on top of his game.   A few years ago in nearly every Eagles game, we were treated to a play with Cox running over a guard or center, then chasing the opposing quarterback, who was running for his life.

The potential of Cox to dominate will make it likely that he will be sought after, if the Birds are in a rebuilding mold during the offseason following the 2021 season.  Therefore the future of the veteran defensive tackle in Philadelphia is unquestionably tied to the play of their young quarterback.

The final factor that could weigh in on the future of Cox here in Philadelphia is the new Nick Sirianni coaching staff.  The Doug Pederson coaching staff had seen the veteran defensive tackle dominate opponents and make his yearly trip to the Pro Bowl.  Of course they also saw him help them win a Super Bowl Title.  They had a loyalty to him.  The Sirianni coaching staff doesn’t have that history with Cox.  If he continues to decline in performance, this coaching staff will have no problem with Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman deciding to move him.

This is a very important season for Cox and the Eagles.  If it goes well, the veteran defensive tackle could play another five or six years here and retire as an Eagle.  If it doesn’t go well this year, it could easily be his final season as a Bird.

  1. Fletcher Cox’s biggest issue is his Conditionibg and Weight, he needs to lose a good 20lbs and cone into Camp in tip too physical shape ans not what he’s done tre last 2 Years where he “plays” his way into shape which just doesn’t cut it in the NFL
    He’s lost his Explosiveness, Quickness and overall Stamina in recent years and he is no longer a Top 10 DT in the NFL and nowhere close to the Top 3 no matter what Eagles Fan say and is not doubled-team on every Play like everyone says and like he used to be
    It’s also a big Season for RT Lane Johnson who is paid as a Too LT would be in the NFL and is coming off 2 often injured Seasons and no longer the Player he once was either
    I’m not beating down on these Pkayers but the reality is that they have played a ton of games from day 1 for many Seasons including many Playoff Games over their Careers but Football is a young mans game in the Trenches and yes some Lineman can play for a long time but these guys bodies are breaking down and are in the twilight of their Careers
    In terms of Trade Value, the Eagles most known Pkayers are highly paid, Aging so there is not going to be good Value in Trafing them as we see with TE Ertz who is coming off a down year with injuries
    At $23 Million, No Team is paying Fletcher Cox for 2 More Years for 4-6 Sacks a Season with 5-10 Tackled for loss, he’s just not the impact Player he once was
    Unless he restructures his deal where it’s a lower Salary for the next 2/3 Seasons, the Eagles will find themselves in the same situation thry we’re with A Jeffrey, Z Ertz, M Jackson where they are either stuck keeping them or eating a large amount of $$$ to Cut/Release them ..
    it i what it is with the 3-4 Highest Paid Players on the Eagles right now (Cox, L Johnson, B Graham and B Brooks, all very good Playere in their primes but Father Time waits for No One and the Eagles shouldn’t either during this Transition Season

  2. There are a bunch of different ways to measure salary in the nfl and given the complexity of the salary cap it is very difficult to argue salary. Using base salary LJ is the fourth highest paid RT. So that’s not out of line. He’s would be the fifth highest paid LT. The notion that LT is more a premium than RT is outdated in today’s nfl. Miless Garrett, frank Clark, Joey Bosa the best and highest paid DEs primarily line up on the defensive left side so RT is damn important. You’re thinking of the old days when statue QBs need their blind side protected. The difference in th eagles record when LJ plays vs when he doesn’t shows how Important he is.

    1. He was among the his best paid OL when he signed his extension 2 Years Ago..
      bottom line is that he’s been I busted with Ankle issues the last 2 Seasons and who knows if he ever recovers fully to become one of the Top OL again…
      I’m not saying he can’t but I also don’t think everyone can assume that aWith Brooks and LJ returning that they both will be what they were 2-3 Years ago, history tells us No
      and it’s unlikely that either player will be playing when the Eagles are positioned to compete for Deep Playoff Runs/Championships again 2-3 Years time
      You can probably say the same thing for
      Cox & BG on the Defensive side of the Ball
      Good Players for sure, but not T the stage of their Career’s where you are going to build around for the Future but there is value of having proving Players on your Roster, but I’m note sure at the level they are being paid for it’s way above market value for what they actually produce on the Field

  3. I do agree with the advent of more Mobile/Scrambling QB’s in the NFL coming in every Season that all OL across the Front
    Need to be more athletic and have the ability to move as the Defenses put out more Athletic Defenders to slow down these Athletic QB’s
    So definitely not as much as a disparity of importance between LT and RT in Todays NFL

    1. Wow a borderline concession from PM. A Gcobb first. He is deservedly a top paid tackle. He’s good and 30 year old good players at premium positions get paid. Hopefully they can ride the 3 vets as long as possible BUT remember they drafted. LT in round one, developed a monster tackle and drafted the best interior OL in this draft. Howie deserves his share of criticism but he understands the importance of OL. They had a bunch of guys get experience and have 3 studs waiting in the wings

      1. Brandon Graham is tied for the 53rd highest base salary at DE. Tied with similar over 30 year old rotation players such as V. Curry etc. they extended him out which yes that bill will come due but it’s the business. No need for doom and gloom. M. Jackson is the 44th highest paid DT and all the guys around that number are the same age, have the same nicks and bruises. It is simply the business of the NFL. The eagles regardless of how this season plays out are essentially out of cap hell… which you guys whine about every single year…. my old friend HAC used to say….”don’t worry about the funny money, it’s a mirage and the GM can deal with it”… he was 100% correct.

  4. With BG restricted deal
    He has a $34 million in Dead $ Cap Hit in 2021
    A $24 Million Dead $ Cap Hit in 2022
    A $18 Million Dead $ Cap Hit for 2023
    A $10 Million Dead $ Cap Hit for 2024 when he’s 36 which is just insane
    Howie just exited his Deal for 3 Years for $40
    Million as he keeps kicking major Cap Space down the Road ..

    1. Dead cap is only bad if not helping? I thought u considered yourself GM material…. Yet you fail to comprehend the business side…. I never understand that. You somehow think the te
      Am should always w
      In a negotiation…. It’s not about winning
      It always surprises me
      You don’t get it…. You want cheap underpaid players…. You must be
      Retarded

      1. Eagles had more than $50 Million of Dead $$$ for 2021 in the Wentz,A Jeffrey, M Jackson and D-Jax Contracts.. In other words, $50 Million Paid to Players that are no longer on the Team
        That’s Poor Roster/Contract Management any way you want to look at it and a Big Reason why they can’t add a CB,LB or Safety of any consequence .. Don’t blame Covid Year with less Cap Space, its the shitty Contract that Roseman has been giving out the last Few Years that were poor Football Decisions plain and simple

        1. dummy everyone knows the covid thing has hamstrung a lot of teams. you can’t say it didn’t – thats stupid- also stupid is throwing Wentz in there- standard operating procedure is to lock up you QB who you throw the weight of your franchise behind- no one, not you, me or them predicted Carson would go sideways! We also didn’t predict Covid.
          Wentz is currently the 10th highest paid QB so its at market value. of course he will drop probably to 15 or 16 when the next batch of young guys get signed– you don’t understand the business and in your rush to throw your “favorite” team under the bus you don’t care to learn. You just like to sit and criticize– learn a little- this is the big leagues with real money– teams spend, make good/bad signings and move on– not dwell like a little sissy

          1. There goes mr white trash calling names again. What a pure piece of trash. I’d bet my net worth this uneducated white trash scum bag voted for trump.

            1. There is a $500,000 minimum at this table…. you need to pass and find the $2.00 tables BOY

              1. Well take your 500,000 and go get an education and some class. White trash is curable.

              2. I’m not sure what you consider “well educated” but you just lost your net worth if a bachelors and masters degree = well educated.

              3. Scratch that you’re just a dumb, hopeless , white trash blockhead and the spawn of uneducated white trash scum.

              4. You keep changing your tune. You have no convictions, no balls, no original thought. Sucks being you

              5. Tune is the same. You that dumb? Tune is you’re white trash and uneducated and so is your mother.

                Dumb assed maga freak

              6. MAGA? Now I know you’ve run out of shit to say…. you were never witty but if you were on this site during Dumps chaotic and criminal “presidency” you would know that I’m far from MAGA. I think those fucks are traitors and criminals!
                And you are a coward mofo talking about a mans mom behind the safety of your keyboard, sitting in mommy’s basement. You would not say that shit to my or any mans face…BOY, punk ass

              7. No MAGA asshole would call trump a fucking idiot. Sorry pal lifelong Delawarean….voted for Joe for Senate many many times… met him a bunch. He spoke at a graduation of a school where I was principal (he went on forever).
                Sorry I’m not trash and definitely not a MAGA SOB

                In the words of our doubly impeached whiner in chief “fake news”.

              9. Internet tough guy… talking bout a guys mom from mommy’s basement … hide behind behind a keyboard. Definition of PUSSY

              10. I’d ragdoll your white trash ass and smack you in you’re classless mouth. Then I’d spank yo mommas ass. #100

              11. Keyboard tough guy…. I guess we will never know cuz you hide in mommy’s basement with the keyboard … “mom I want some meatloaf”…. if only you’d come out of the basement….

        2. RT Ryan Ramcek just signed the richest deal for a RT in history. This from Paul’s beloved Saints. Contract pays him till he’s 32, if Winston actually becomes a franchise QB and has to get paid you will see that deal get kicked down the road…. big boys play big stakes with real money.

          1. A Big Contract for RT Ramczyk who is the Highest Rated RT in all of Football and in his Prime at 27 Years Old right now.. He’s missed 1 game in the 4 Year NFL Career so obviously very durable and one of the Best OT In the NFL
            His Contract Extension is for 5 Years at $96 Million ($19.2 Avg per Year) with $60 Million in Guaranteed $$ (which really means this is a 3 Year Deal in reality – always look at the Guaranteed $$ and this will tell you how long the Contract really is) so by the time he’s 31, the Guaranteed $$$ will basically gone..

            Now the Panthers have to Sign their Top RT (Taylor Moton) who is the 2nd Highest Rated RT in the NFL and was franchised-tagged for $14 Million for 2021 Season to a long-term extension and I’m sure his price just jumped up

            Other Top RT in the NFL today – TB Bucs – Tristian Wirfs, Cleveland Browns – Jack Conklin, Colts – Braden Smith, 49ers – Mike McGlinchey
            We’ll see if Lane Johnson can bounce into form from Injuries and Play at a High level again in 2021 as his Run-Blocking Grades have slipped the last 2 Years

  5. I’ve mentioned this before but the eagles, during Howie’s exile hired a consultant who worked for Manchester United (I think). His model is quick corrections, quick change of direction and don’t get bogged down. Since then we’ve seen a week 15 firing of chip, hiring of a coach no one had on their A list (Doug), aggressive move up to get Wentz, a super bowl, a total meltdown, a very quick firing of a SB coach, a trade of a disgruntled franchise QB, hiring another non A list coach, more aggression on the draft board. All this done in an effort to never get weighted down …. they are looking at this from a different lense …. this is similar to how you mistakenly thought RT was a much more valuable player than LT….that’s old school.
    Vegas has the over under at 6.5…. I don’t bet much but damn that looks tempting.

  6. Never said RT was more valuable than LT, You had it backwards …
    Whether its from Soccer or Not, the bottom line for any Successful Sports and Business Organizational is be
    flexible, decisiveness (with data and facts backing your Options and Decisions) and always forward thinking,
    What Worked 2-3-5 Years ago, does not necessarily means it works in the Future.. I believe all smart people in whatever walk of like realize this .. Planning and Anticipating different Scenarios helps your plan your Options
    better and any well-run Organzation understands and preaches this as part of their overall Philosophy
    Early during Luries Ownership – He had Joe Banner doing things against the “Norms” of the NFL such as
    using Analytics, Grading Certain Positions based on being impactful, Staying away for 30 + Year Old Players
    as history says they get injured more often and are paid higher than a 26 Year old… Allocating Resources to best suit a 53 Man Team under Cap Constraints, etc,etc… Joe Banner was 10 Years ahead of most NFL Executives/GM and really has been under-appreciated in contributing to the Success of the Eagles Franchise
    He gives great Insight on his Guest Visits on various pod-casts and I could listen to him for Hours

    Most NFL Teams and Sport Teams have all moved or attempting to move in this Direction, only the older, Family Owned and run Franchises still cling onto the old ways of doing things…

    1. This guy is more ahead of the curve than Banner. And you are correct he is way under appreciated

      1. Who Howie Roseman? I disagree ?
        Joe Banner runs Circles around Howie in Terms of Contract/Roster Management, Unfortunately Banner’s abrasive personality turned off many in NFL Circles so he was never able to build the Relationships around the League and with Players Agents that Howie has done and to Howie’s Credit for this is a big part of any Leadership/Executive Position in any Industry is to know and understand how others operate and to build relationships with as many competitors as your can…

        1. No the consultant they hired from Manchester United. They have flipped the switch. They are going at team direction entirely different.
          If u go back to when Howie came back from the dead he talked about how he searched the world and talked to successful soccer, formula one teams, cricket, etc… they have a different look than they did… they will cut ties, change etc quickly….
          These contracts u whine about they could care less cuz if they bite them in there ass they are prepared to move….

          1. Whats this Guys Name from MU ? Ill have to check him out and do some research

            On a Side Note
            I’m calling the Eagles Trading TE Ertz along with their 2023 7th Round Draft Pick to the
            Buffalo Bills for their 2022 5th Round Draft Pick ..
            Let see how close I am…

            1. Paul I don’t remember I believe he is now part of a company and other teams in all sports have hired them. Again, it was hush hush and it wasn’t a consultant like John Dorsey was a consultant for talent eval or Morningwig was a offensive consultant. This was a management consultant/organization/philosophy type thing. How u do business guy… it really showed in cutting Carson and Doug loose… somehow their vision didn’t mesh

              1. I’ll check into it, and see who he or who he works for
                Do you recall if he was American or English/European ?
                I’m interested in learning more about him/their Group/who their working for, etc..
                sounds like a Robert Ludlum Novel!! Ha!!

              2. It’s like a “Black Ops” mission. I believe he is British…. again the model is t specific to football so he’s not a football guy. I’ve tried to find out more but it was broken by McClane or one of those guys. I would describe it as being light on your feet, stay ahead of trends etc. apparently this guy has worked with Indy/formula 1 teams etc…

  7. I am also calling for a Trade of DE Derek Barnett to the Cleveland Browns for CB Greedy Williams
    during Camp … Browns are stacked at CB and could use another Pass Rusher
    Barnett will leave the Eagles after 2021 IN free-Agency so they may as well get a starting Caliber, Young CB in return who will be CB2 opposite Slay

    1. I don’t see them trading Barnett. They need DE and value DE. He is in a contract year and he has a lot to prove. I think they have a bunch of young guys at CB and you have to develop an internal guy. Maybe not a guy with a pedigree but it happens all over the nfl get the right guy with the right attitude and make him into a player

      1. Plus if Barnett leaves in FA I’m pretty sure they would get a round 3 compensatory pick.

        1. No guarantees in Compensatory Pick which are measures between the difference of how many Players you lose as a Team versus how many Players you sign
          Example – Eagles lose Starting Players in Free Agency but Sign 3 Starting Players in Free-Agency, They would get Zero Compensatory Picks so it’s based on the aggregate gain/loss of Players in Free Agency not any 1 particular Player on his own
          Next off-season with actual Cap Space the Eagles will likely Sign a few Defensive Players (CB, Safety,LB) so losing D Barnett does not guarantee a Compensatory Pick in Return
          And of course it also depends how productive a player is too
          So a player like Barnett getting 5-6 Sacks and let’s say misses his usual 3-4 Games probably means a lower Grade in CP based on the Net Gain/Less on the their
          Free-Agents activity so a lot of unknowns and nothing you can’t on as a Team
          If you make a Trade, then you know what your actual compensation will be…
          I read every year, let this guy or that guy walk and we’ll get this x Comp Pick in Return and rarely is it true ..

          1. I believe that salary/contract determines a large part of compensatory picks– the nfl formula for that is a big secret so …
            anyway the eagles history shows they are more inclined to go young/no pedigree at corner than DE– they aint turning over what they consider extremely hi value positions to rookies in the rotation.. they aren’t going with Kerrigan, Graham and rooks- DB will not be traded– if they do they would be soooo stupid- only a true dummy would propose such a disaster

            1. It’s about the Players Production and the net Gain/Loss with a Team
              in their Free-Agency period that determines Compensatory Picks
              A Player’s last Salary and who moves on in Free-Agency has Zero to do with this Process !!

  8. I see the Draft Picks M Williams and T Jackson as fortifying the DE Spot as M Williams will likely play both inside out similar to what Michael Bennett did during his Eagles time

    1. I will say, looking at the eagles roster the 2 most glaring errors of the past few years is the drafting of Douglass and Jones. It would be nice to have some home grown DB talent back there. My hope is Macpherson can be developed along with maybe an undrafted guy- the secondary needs to reworked. Luckily secondaries can turn around quickly and unheralded guys can step up–

      1. I’d say it was more the Coachibg and Scheme that the Eagles tried to employ with Douglas,Jones more than the lack of Talent they possessed
        Douglas would do well in a press-Coverage Scheme and Jones probably would be a better suited as Slot/Nickel CB than an outside CB due to his lack of physicality
        But what CB’s have looked consistently Good under Secondary Coach Corey Undlin and Jim Schwartz during his time as DC ?
        Darby, Mills, Maddox ?

  9. “Joe Banner runs circles around Howie”.. Dunno bout that– I am a Banner fan and recognize the good he did- But in a 16 year NFL career at the highest level he didn’t win a SB– I understand PM doesn’t care about winning on the field- PM plays the SB in March, April and May– but Howie won his SB in February– in the real world that would be considered running circles around the other guy.

    1. Howie didn’t Win the SB, The Players/Coaches on the Field Won the Super Bowl as always..
      Joe Banner had a few Rules that he stuck by
      and that were very good for his time during the Eagles, some of which wouldn’t relate to Today’s as game as players are playing into their early-mid 30’s due to year round Training, better nutrition and more rules added to the Sport to advance Safety issues but in terms of Roster Management, Draft, Contracts, He was very Good and one the bet in the NFL in his tenure…
      Howie’s very aggressive which is needed in Today’s Sports, but his Contracts, Drafts and Roster Management have not been as consistent or strong as Banner’s in my opinion

      1. Your dumbest take he built a super bowl winning roster…. That really is just u being passive aggressive and really dumb. For all you talk about off season maneuvering etc u know damn well he won a SB. That really is a dumb hot take after years and years of them

        1. Ive never seen a GM of a NFL Franchise Win anything in the Off-Season or In-Season,
          It’s always about the Players and Coaches and now, so much more than ever…

          1. Though I’ve seen plenty of GM’s lose it for a Team by what they do or don’t do
            whether is Poor Draft Selections, Poor Player Contracts and Extensions,
            Mis-managing the Salary/Cap Space, Roster Management

            A Good GM facilates the Coaches Vision and adds Talent to what the Coaches are looking for the Team’s Success.. Its up to the Coaches to put Players in Positions to Succeed and then up to the Players to Execute these Schemes and Game Plans to the Best of their Ability in the framework of Team Ball where all members of the Team (Coaches/Players) are flexible, versatile enough to switch gears and learn new strategies and schemes.. All Part of the Game, What works this week doesn’t mean its going to work Next Week, Good Teams/Coaches have to continually evolve as a Team, as an Offense and Defense ..
            Hopefully we’ll see some of this from Coach Sirianna and Staff..

            1. you are all about who wins the off season! you say it all the time–this year you declared New England the off season winners- you liar!

              1. The Off-Season is just not the first Week of Free-Agency in Mid-March BOZO !!! Get with the Program !!
                Patriots Won the First Week of Free-Agency.. That’s what I said then and I Stand By This Statement for it was True, They Signed 5/6 Starting Quality Players the first Week in Free-Agency …

                The “Off-Season” consists on Free-Agency , the Draft, Post Draft, All Summer Long which makes an Off-Season last months and months…

              2. But your earlier comment the GM wins nothing is now contradicted with declaring off season winners/losers– after all it is the GM playing this game- its flip flop/have your cake and eat it too/play both sides/predict success in one post, failure in another (same thread)– years and years and years of fraudulent posts!

            2. The eagles have totally shifted the “gm facilitates the coaches vision”– the eagles as i’ve indicated are run differently now, hence dougs departure. The coach is actually now supposed to facilitate the organizations vision. The owner/GM/organization have a vision of how to be successful both competitively and financially and the coach must conform to this vision. He will obviously be given a wide berth to include his strengths, philosophies etc but in the end the organizations vision is what is important in the eagles case- for the record I’m not 100% on board but they didn’t seek my input– but that is their structure.

          2. you are all about who wins the off season! you say it all the time–this year you declared New England the off season winners- you liar!

            1. I did not Declare the Patiots as Off-Season Winner, there are many Teams who have improved their Chances for 2021 with their Off-Seasons moves..

              I may have stated the Patriots won the 1st Wave of Free-Agency .. but not the Off-Season which also includes Draft Selections, Cap Management, Coaching Staff Hires/Hires, etc,etc

              Teams in the AFC who improved their themselves the most – Chiefs, Browns,Ravens, Patriots, Titans, Chargers, Colts, Dolphins, Jets/Jaguars

              Teams in the NFC who improved themselves the most – Washington FT,
              NY Giants, Carolina, Detroit, Minnesota, 49ers, Rams, Seahawks and Cardinals and yes the TB Bucs

              Teams that have taken a Step Back

              AFC – Steelers, Texans & Raiders
              NFC – Saints, Eagles & Falcons

              1. “I may have declared them early off season winners”… meanwhile you contradict your earlier posts..
                You have no way of telling who actually improved themselves because as you previously said…. “the players and coaches have to go on the field and perform”.. flip flop

              2. Patriots,,Browns & TB Bucs won the early Free-Agency period which is part of the Off-Season but not the entire off-Season as you also have the Draft, Un-Drafted Free-Agency anc then late Signings thru the Summer
                Duh!! When have I mentioned the Patriots after the first week of Free-Agency in late March ?

  10. Only Aaron Donald has played better over the past five years at the position, but Cox has a huge 2022 cap hit and the Eagles will be forced to either extend the future Hall of Famer or move on and hit the reset button.

    1. What a Player did 3-4-5 Years ago means very little for 2021 and beyond.
      Fletcher Cox has not been the dominant DL he was from 2-3 Years ago mostly due to his lack of his Conditioning
      He’s put on some 20-25 Lbs, Lost some Explosion,Stamina and Endurance…
      Younger, Hungrier DT’s Aaron Donald, Chris Jones, D Bruckner, Grady Jarrett, Cam Haywrd, Leonard Williams, Kenny Clark, Akeem Hicks, have been more impactful and consistent with their play than Fletcher Cox and there are a few younger DT’s really elevating their Games like Jeff Simmons of Titans, Vita Vea of TB Bucs, Derrick Brown of the Panthers…
      Cox is in the twilight of his Career as N Suh is, G Atkins is, etc, and yes he can still play and be effective but but probably over a full Game or Season unless he re-commits himself and gets into the best shape of his life and we’ll know at the 1st Day of Summer Camp in a few weeks if he’s serous about completing his Carreer as an Eagle and cementing his Legacy as an All-Time Great DT in the NFL
      If He comes into Camp at 315lbs and in tip-top shape, raring to go from Day 1 hen he can have 2-3 More productive Seasons, but If he comes in at 330 or more and wants to use Camp to play his way into football shape, then this will be his final Season as an Eagle

  11. Since someone mentioned Donald I did some checking on the rams. They will be in a very strange cap situation, similar to the eagles current (without the Covid cap hit) but they put their eggs in the Stanford basket but he needs a new contract and will be 34, Donald’s contract is winding down, they have a high dollar 40 year old LT, there very good 30 year old LT is nearing the end of his contract … they will try to keep this window open but it’s gonna cost them.

  12. Rams lost 3-4 Very Goid Players off their Defense plus their Defensive Coordinator who took the Chargers Job and brought some Staff with him…
    Starting Safety Joe Johnson, Starting CB Tony Hill Jr, Starting DT M Brockers, Rotational Pass Rusher Morgan Fox and a LB to go along with losing 3rd WR Josh Reynolds and some others.. Rams will have to Win Shoot Outs this Season with QB Stafford as their Defense will not be as good as last Season for sure and they will struggle to Win that Tough NFC West Division as all the other Teams have improved while they took a step back this off-season

    1. They would argue their upgrade at the most important position will make up for it. It’s amazing to me how harshly they judged Goff. They saw his weaknesses in neon lights. So they feel they got to SB despite his weaknesses yet Detroit couldn’t even get to the playoffs with a much superior QB…

      1. Yes they will argue this for sure that Stafford is superior to Goff, it will be interesting to see how Matt Stafford handles the pressure of actually having Expectations, their Offense should be more explosive led by 2nd Year RB Cam Akers to go along with those WR’s in Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Van Jefferson, D-Jax, Draft Pick T Atwell and TE T Higbee , but the Rams OL and TE Depth is kinda of thin.

  13. Weird

    The Timberwolves “will be in on” potential trade discussions involving Ben Simmons as well as “a number of other players” according to a report in The Athletic.
    In addition to Friday’s report in The Athletic, Minnesota-based reported Dane Moore tweeted that “Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas and 76ers General Manager Elton Brand met in Chicago during the NBA combine, sources say, where a Ben Simmons trade to Minnesota was discussed.” However, Moore does add that “negotiations are not substantive at this time.”

    WEIRD NO IT ALL PAUL AND WHITE TRASH HAC TOLD ME ELTON ISNT DOING THIS AND MOREY IS. STRANGE

    1. They don’t operate in a vacuum dummy– are you retarded or just coked up? you said Morey was hands off and in charge of game day popcorn sales not personnel– Morey directly contradicted you the next day– you also said if Morey is in personnel that they were wasting money on Brand= I pointed out that wasn’t true– Brand isn’t in a broom closet! But he doesn’t have total say, not final say on personnel. you are really an angry boy living in mommy’s basement– I wish you’d show your face i’d beat you back to mommy’s breast

      1. Never said that you illiterate white trash idiot.

        Uh yea I’m not white trash like you. I don’t want to fight people on the internet. That’s for white trash poor people with nothing to lose which clearly fits you. Not me sir nope i don’t fit that bill.

        1. You did say that bozo… oh you were talking tough … talking bout another guys mother then you try to take the hi road… you are an amateur.. nothing piece of shit.

          Unfortunately Elton brand is gm not morey.

          Morey is pres of operations

          President of Basketball Operations is a broader title. They typically oversee administrative and legal issues, public relations, and game day logistics in addition to personnel. It’s a higher position than GM but less involved with specific decisions.

          If morey making deals then Elton does nothing but stealing money from Sixers again

          And I quote u loser

          1. Paul clearly stated brand is involved but Morey pulls the trigger. You went off like the smelly cunt you are…

        2. Where i say this

          You illiterate white trash spawn of whites trash? you said “Morey was hands off and in charge of game day popcorn sales not personnel”

          I’ll wait you illiterate white trash poor scumbag

          1. It’s called hyperbole. Since you are poorly educated allow me to explain. Hyperbole is an exaggerated statement not to be taken literally. An author can use hyperbole to emphasize the absurd.
            In this case you were pointing out that Morey is more involved in “game day logistics”…seeing that your statement is ludicrous I used a literary device called hyperbole to emphasize your lack of understanding as to how Sixers personnel decisions are made.
            Mama should let you out of the basement once in awhile …. Read a book frustrated one!

    2. So Brand is doing his due diligence and gathering information from various Clubs about a potential package for Simmons,
      So what ? He will talk to a dozen Teams about this Roster but it’s Morey who will have the final say, the yay or nay on any Deal and anyone who thinks differently is an idiot

      The VP of Basketball Operations (Morey) authority and decision making supersedes
      that of GM Elton Brand who is still under “training” as a True GM.

      What’s so difficult to understand this ?

      1. Elton is not just the errand boy as Paul states. He has a seat at the adult table for sure but “pres of basketball operations” has his finger on the trigger. The title alone tells you the pecking order in personnel. The coke head was on a bender and being combative…. Mom didn’t cut the crust off his PB. &J

  14. Mr. coke head, I’m currently about 5 miles off the coast heading to the tuna grounds. I may lose service so my last post for awhile…although if I get service and the fishing is slow maybe I will respond again.
    After reading your posts I realize I was too hard on you. You obviously don’t comprehend thoughtful debate. You resort to short bursts of one syllable words. You take trashy “your mom” approach when you’ve been clearly outwitted. Using “your mom” in a debate is a sure sign of an immature, limited vocabulary, dim witted rube.
    Oh I want to point out that when you challenged me with a bet of your entire net worth (or however you put it) you were kind of using hyperbole there. You had zero intention of actually betting me your baseball card collection… you were exaggerating to make a point.
    Hey it’s Saturday maybe mommy will put some chocolate chips in your pancakes

    1. 4am and this white trash freak is thinking about me. Yikes. Get a life you insecure freak.

      1. Guaranteed this white trash freak is sitting on the side of the Delaware trying to catch catfish for dinner. You ain’t on no tuna boat unless it’s one of those poor people party boats for like 100 people

        1. I will give you the ends after I cut up the filets… ur mommy can make some fresh tuna salad and make you a sandwich…. Make sure mommy cuts the crust off. Your a pussy

            1. Here is some free advice….when engaging in debate switch up your writing style a bit. Try to use wit, subtleties and a change of pattern. Sticking to one mundane, elementary form of writing shows lack of imagination, creativity and it bores the reader. It is the surest way to show how dull your thinking is.
              It’s time for recess boy…. head outside and get some vitamin D…

              1. Free advise from me. Normal educated folk like me don’t take advise from classless, uneducated , whites trash folk.

              2. Keep pecking away at the keyboard junior. Glad you are enjoying summer vacation in mommy’s basement. You argue from a very shallow pool, you have zero to offer in there form of debate.
                Time for milk and cookies boy

  15. Nfl insiders just came out with a ranking that Cox is the 5th best interior lineman in football. Some say his down year last year was due to being on a terrible defense/team. He is the first player a team must account for. Expect a huge year from him this year.

  17. While the doom and gloom salary cap hand wringers are doing their idiotic salary cap analysis they’ve totally missed the sneaky manner in which the eagles have put together a 10 man OL with 3 pro bowl guys winding down and 7 young guys. Herbig turned 23 today, he has dropped 30 pounds, didn’t allow a sack the last 8 weeks of the season has apparently impressed Stoutland. This could lead to a brooks trade or just keep both for depth… they will figure out which is best. Dickerson will be a 12 year starter an institution. Dillard is new and improved, Malaita a 7th round contributor. Still only 24. Seumolo is 27
    I know a lot of it is off season hype and anticipation but as a fan happy they have paid attention to the OL

    1. Wasn’t it Stan Walters ?

      I envision a 2022 OL as this
      LT – Dillard
      LG – Seumalo
      Center – Herbig
      RG – Dickerson
      RT – Mailata

      Backups – Clark, Driscoll, Opeta and 2022 Draft Pick

      Out with the Old and In with the New !!

      1. It is Walters …
        I see LJ for a couple more and brooks as well. The only exception would be if they can move one of them for salary relief not that they really need it… salary cap “trouble” is pretty much a myth, created to keep the nfl in the news cycle. Taking the strange way Tampa was built around the goat hi priced FA aren’t necessary… it’s always the mid to low end trade or FA that fits a teams culture that make a difference. Even Tampa’s FA were cheap for the most part.
        Pay your own guys…..

        1. I think from the Veteran Gang of 3 on the OL (Kelce,Brooks and LJ) that 2 of these 3 Players won’t be back in 2022 (Probably Kelce/Brooks)
          LJ’s Contract makes it almost impossible to Trade which is similar to Fletcher Cox’s

          I still think Dickerson will ultimately Play Guard for the Eagles with Herbig end up playing Center seeing where Herbig/Driscoll gets reps at the most this Summer will be interesting to see
          I’m not sure Dickerson will even participate this Summer Camp at all and think he may end up being red-shirted his Rookie Year to get 100 % Healthy or at least Start the 2021 Season on the short-term IR list meaning he can’t be activated until Week 6 or 7 which would be the smart thing to do as the Eagles have some Depth along the OL and let Dickerson get 100% healthy and get his body right for the Future

          1. Eagles have about $30 Million of Cap Space heading into Next Off-Season but do have approx half their Roster with Players coming up as Free-Agents Next Off-Season

            Offense –
            QB J Flacco and N Mullins
            RB K Johnson, B Scott & R Howard
            OL J Mailata, M Pryor (who likely doesn’t make the 53 Man Roster this Year
            and La’Raven Clark
            TE D Goedart and R Rodgers
            WR G Ward

            Defense
            DE _ D Barnett, J Sweat, R Kerrigan
            DT – H Ridgeway
            LB – E Wilson, A Singleton, G Avery, TJ Edwards
            CB – A Maddox, C James
            Safety – A Harris, R McLeod, A Adams

            So we will see a Roster Turnover next Off-Season which is why its critical that some one the Young Players form 2019/2020 Draft , develop and contribute this Season as much as possible to become the next Core of Players for the Future

            1. I compared the age/health of the eagles OL with the division winners around the league. They are pretty much consistent throughout football OL are typically banged up, rare to have an intact OL. It happens to the young and old. Most teams have a couple guys in their 30s. LJ just turned 31, BB turns 32 during camp it isn’t as ancient as some pessimistic “fans” would have you believe.
              Eagles will weigh youth vs experience in camp. Knowing them they are going to want the big 3 vets to carry the load BUT they will be loaded behind them.

              1. There’s a Couple of the Younger Players behind the Big 3 that they need to find out about too… Even though Kelce/Brooks/LJ are still early 30’s , they have played in a lot of Games so far in their Careers, as all 3 became became Starters in their 1st Seasons which usually doesn’t occur and have played extra Playoffs Games, etc,etc .. Their Bodies can only take so much before they start breaking down..
                I think LJ if Ankle if back close to 100% can play 3 solid More Seasons and Brooks can too as he takes fantastic care of himself..
                Kelce is about done and will probably hang it up this Year
                The ? for Brooks/LJ is do you continue to Pay them Top $$ when you have cheaper, younger capable Players behind them ?

              2. Kelce will be 34 (which isn’t all that old for a C) and hasn’t missed a game in like 6 years. As you point out that’s a lot of ball but in the other hand having no injury history is a plus. The question with him isn’t his ability he is still a top C and will be again, with his career and profile how much desire does he have for the constant nagging injuries? He can walk right into tv or radio in a cushy spot. He’s so well liked and respected (remember Pm wanted to trade him for a 5th). Thee trade Kelce posts were big in this site for a few years Paul and his old pal cliff were the leaders. Throwing Unknowledgeable shitty opinions against the wall. Guy is HOF potential and the off season warriors wanted him gone.
                I hope he goes this year even tho our play could drop. I want to see him go out healthy.

  18. I like the Phillies Top Draft Pick from last Night, Big Starting RHP from Florida
    With a fluid motion and has 3-4 Pitches in his arsenal already as a Senior in High School with a Scholarship to the am of Florida

    1. They’ve drafted 2 HS big RH pitchers the last 2 years. I dunno that means they are years from contributing. Baseball draft is a crapshoot ….

      1. A good 3-4 Years away I’m sure , but you have to Start somewhere in rebuilding the Farm Team and especially with Pitching

  19. hello!,I love your writing very a lot! percentage we keep in touch more about your post on AOL? I require a specialist on this area to solve my problem. Maybe that’s you! Looking ahead to look you.

  20. I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

  21. Wow, incredible weblog structure! How long have you been blogging for? you make running a blog look easy. The total glance of your site is magnificent, as smartly as the content!

  22. Thanks for your helpful post. In recent times, I have been able to understand that the symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by a build up of fluid involving the lining of the lung and the upper body cavity. The illness may start inside chest location and propagate to other body parts. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include fat reduction, severe breathing trouble, throwing up, difficulty swallowing, and puffiness of the face and neck areas. It needs to be noted that some people existing with the disease don’t experience any serious indications at all.

  23. I have noticed that in cameras, exceptional devices help to focus automatically. These sensors connected with some cams change in in the area of contrast, while others work with a beam involving infra-red (IR) light, specifically in low light. Higher standards cameras occasionally use a mixture of both devices and might have Face Priority AF where the camera can ‘See’ the face and concentrate only on that. Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this blog site.
