  1. The trade itself. Sure, whatever we got some value out of him, i guess. But every Eagles fan should be irate about the way our FO handled the entirety of the situation. This was the same regime that preached emotional intelligence after firing Chip Kelly. The irony is palpable, and I say that as someone that also feels like there is a huge amount of accountability from Carson’s end in causing this situation.
  2. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are both pretty good examples of this too, albeit they were both older, but given Carson’s injury history, having a good backup is a very reasonable thing to prioritize. it’s come out recently that he didn’t talk to Doug Pederson for 8-9 weeks during the season. Hearing that is just comically pathetic, but also would make sense for just how unusually poor his performance was this past season. He literally played like he was trying to get people fired or himself traded. Well, mission accomplished I guess, he succeeded on both fronts. I’m not much of a
  3. Seems like a huge stretch to me. Also weird for him as the supposed face of the franchise to not even publicly comment around Doug’s departure, even if it is a canned PR statement. Just feels like a whole lot of passive aggressive nonsense from Wentz’s camp. Compounding that, is the irony of people defending him for being upset with the Hurts pick, when the sentiment was completely the opposite when he was first drafted and Bradford was the one complaining. I’m grateful for his contributions to the team and we would not have a SB without his performance in 2017, but man, what a
  4. I think two KC lineman blocked each other on that last play. That was unreal how quick they got in.
  5. I want a GM that gets his pick right, especially when he trades the farm to get his guy and then signs him to an extension. If you're making that bet on a player and you're wrong (short of the player having a career ending injury), I'm sorry, but you're out. Both drafting Hurts and trading Wentz now is conceding that he was wrong. How the coach and others get held accountable, but not Howie is baffling to me. We literally have to reset this franchise because Howie was wrong about that pick. And worst of all, we have to do it with the same guy that not a single fan should have a shred o
  6. But then you're looking at a crazy double standard considering he fired a SB winning coach and is trading the QB that set them up for the SB run. Not to mention the rest of the team at practically every single other position on the field has only aged and gotten worse. For what it is worth, I don't think Doug was/is a good coach. But, you cannot ignore that the overall talent on the team leaves a lot to be desired, outside of just the mess that Wentz has turned into.
  7. Posted this in the news forum... makes absolutely zero sense to retain Roseman if he is trading Wentz: How Howie Roseman has a job if they do trade Wentz is nothing short of baffling. You would think that the GMs job is tied to the franchise QB, considering the GM gave up this to get him: The Eagles get: The No. 2 pick in 2016 and a 2017 fourth-round pick. The Browns get: The No. 8 pick in 2016, the No. 77 pick (third round) in 2016, the No. 100 pick (fourth round) in 2016, a 2017 first-rounder and a 2018 second-rounder. But then again, this is the same GM that drafted a QB

  9. I mean Chip ran the RPO before Doug did here. I think Reich was a big factor, as was having an absolutely dominant offensive/defensive line. The latter was a big factor in the Giants winning 2 SBs as well.
  10. What wasn’t solid was his offense after some very slightly adjustments by the ravens defense.
  11. He’s made Tannehill look like a player, so he definitely deserves some credit. But he has a very advantageous team/situation to run play action with. Most teams that play the Titans are going to focus on the run. The Ravens did that and made some slight coverage adjustments in the first half and the Titans had no answer whatsoever. It’s one game, but it’s his biggest game to date and the play calling in general left a lot to be desired.
  12. After what I just witnessed against the Ravens... hard pass on Arthur Smith.
  13. I posted this in the news forum in response to Doug wanting out because he doesn’t want to be told what to do: “The irony is that Pederson was only hired In the first place so that Howie and Lurie could tell him what to do and influence his coaching staff. He had zero credentials to be hired as a HC in the NFL, he was literally coaching HS like 2 years prior. The SB win was the best and worst thing for him, it went straight to his head. “ Maybe winning the SB earned him some autonomy, but clearly that wasn’t going to happen with Howie as the GM. Also, when given the ability to h
  14. So when does Lurie just announce that Howie is the HC too? As for the QB situation, I think it has to be that they are rolling with Wentz. You don’t trade up in the draft and spend $100M on a guy and then not fire the GM, if he flops. Howie’s future has to be tied to Wentz.
  15. Easily the least appealing. Jeff fisher... here we come!
