  1. A hungarian guy, so super bowl is guaranteed.
  2. Jimmy has an article explainig the situation perfectly. The eagles need to shed 15+m in salary before the new league year kicks in. https://www.phillyvoice.com/analyzing-report-eagles-will-let-nick-foles-walk-free-and-clear/ This is how Howie can pull of for example. Extend Nelson Agholor to a 3 year 21m deal with 9m signing bonus. Cap hits 5.5m, 6.5m, 9m for a 7m average is not a bad deal for him IMO. +3.9m Restructure Nigel Bradham. He barely has any guaranteed money, so give him a 6m signing bonus and move 4.5m to the last three years. +4.5m Restructure Michael Bennett. He has nil guaranteed money. Convert 5m base and 1m roster bonus into a signing bonus. +3m Restructure Timmy Jernigan. OTC is not updated, but he is supposed to have zero guaranteed and the 3 years are all option years for 10+m per. I think it is reasonable to achieve a relief for 2019 around +5m
  3. How do we feel about Jim Schwartz?

    Last year we had a top5 defense. This year, during the sudden-death period, Eagles had a top5 defense. Does he have flaws? Sure, but he is one of the reasons this team won a super bowl last year and was competing for one this year. On a side note, does he even have a contract? I was trying to find how many years he was signed initally, but couldn't find the info. Doug said all coordinators would be back, so presumably he has at least a 4th year in his contract, but beyond that year we may lose out on him...
  4. Offseason Outlook: Defense

    I think he is rather viewed as a corner. And I think he is Eagles rookie of the year over Goedert.
  5. Offseason Outlook: Defense

    Our defensive needs in my view are by far these three. 1) Safety - Schwartz likes to employ 3 safety sets, and with the uncertainty around McLeod (he can be still injured or he can be even cut) and the fact Jenkins did not miss a game in 5 years since he is an Eagle, we cannot bank on it this keeps on being true. Imagine our safety situation without him. An impact FA or at least a 2nd round pick needs to be invested in a safety - and I'm not talking 'bout a reach like Jaiquan Jarrett. 2) Defensive end. Worst case scenario, only Barnett remains from last year. I think this is not very likely, but it is still a possibility Graham does not re-sing, Long retires and Bennett is a cap casualty. I think Long most probably is gone, either retires or he is cut, as he is not brought back at 5+m a year. I think we should be able to re-sing Graham assuming he does not want to be paid like a top DE. 18 players earned more than 10m in 2018. If he settles around 10m per year, then can fit him under the cap. Otherwise he is not retained. Who knows what happened to Sweat, but that injury did not look too good, and he didn't show anyting on the field anyways. A blue-chip rookie needs to be added to the rotation. 3) Defensive tackle. This draft is loaded with talent, and even if Jernigan is brought back (must be at a reduced salary), there is a huge need to have a competent 3rd tackle. At one point in the season, we had Cox, Hester and freaking TY McGill on the roster with Ngata and Jernigan out. Jim even called the DT situation maybe even more alarming that how our corners looked like. Btw, I feel like I need to say how stupid you were last year, Daryl Worley. Imagine he does not have his DUI, we would have had another capable corner instead of Bausby and Chandon Sullivan. 4) Linebacker. If Hicks is brought back, then this is less of a need. If he is not taking the Eagles offer, we are pretty much screwed. Bradham is pretty good, but there is practically no young talent on this team. And Bradham can be a cap casualty each year going forward, as he as almost zero guaranteed money left. Which I think is gonna change, as that is one of the key moves Howie needs to make IMO to make some room for others. But still, 1 impact player in a position group is less than enough. 5) Cornerback. I think our corners are fine, even if they do not bring Darby back. One thing is for sure, when the roster is set, I do not want to see less than 6 corners making the team. In today's NFL, when 3 corners are practically playing the full game, it is an absolute must. A lower tier FA and a 3rd day pick should be enough. Including the offense, overall the needs are 1) Safety 2) Defensive end 3) Running back 4) Defensive tackle 5) Offensive line
  6. Good old Jim Washburn says hi! /Irony
  7. What I'd do - using the OTC calculator. Current cap space: (12)m Trade Nick Foles and 4th round pick to Jax for 2nd and 3rd round (via the Rams) picks . +18.8m Extend Nelson Agholor to a 3 year 21m deal with 9m signing bonus. Cap hits 5.5m, 6.5m, 9m for a 7m average is not a bad deal for him IMO. +3.9m Restructure Nigel Bradham. He barely has any guaranteed money, so give him a 6m signing bonus and move 4.5m to the last three years. +4.5m Restructure Michael Bennett. He has nil guaranteed money. Convert 5m base and 1m roster bonus into a signing bonus. +3m Restructure Timmy Jernigan. OTC is not updated, but he is supposed to have zero guaranteed and the 3 years are all option years for 10+m per. I think it is reasonable to achieve a relief for 2019 around +5m Chris Long retires. He was a pretty useful rotational player and hell of a teammate. As per reports he already contemplated the retirement before this season, so I think he hangs up. +5.3m Total: 40.5m Optional / worst case scenario moves Release Rodney McLeod. +5.1m Jason Peters retires. +8m Jason Kelce retires. 6.5m Total optional: 19.6m So the Eagles can free up to 60m in cap space which means they would be 48m under the cap.
  8. Oh, and forgot about Ajayi. Same for him, i hope he gets a 1 year deal as well. Tate is gone, I cannot see how they can get him under the cap. I would still give him a shot though.
  9. I can see BG taking a hometown discount, for around 10m per. Let's say 20m fully guaranteed for two years. I'd do that. Agholor is extended for another two years to decrease his 9m+ cap hit. Same goes to Bennett. He has no guaranteed money, so he is getting a signing bonus to decrease his hit. I think Long retires. I hope at least 1 out of Hicks / Darby / Hicks get a short term prove it deal. Would love to have all three back tbh. I cannot see any of these guys getting a long term contract from the Eagles at this point. Jernigan needs to take a paycut, otherwise he is cut for the cap savings. No guaranteed money any more for him. I think McLeod also gets the axe. Good player though, but not worth for his cap hit - especially after an injury. Foles will be traded.
  10. Fletcher Cox Appreciation Thread

    Wanted Kuechly that year in the draft, but Cox is not too shabby either.
  11. Divisional Round GDT Saints vs Eagles

    don't you have a better place to be?
  12. Divisional Round GDT Saints vs Eagles

  13. Divisional Round GDT Saints vs Eagles

    we will score a td here. and then the saints win with a fg.
  14. Divisional Round GDT Saints vs Eagles

    the eagles did not blitz at all in the first quarter at all. maybe change that?
  15. Divisional Round GDT Saints vs Eagles
