So Monday Howie had you obsessively touching yourself post Hargrave but now that he didn't also get Players  B, C, D and E you wanted, He's lost?

You guys crack me up. 

Hargrave was a out of left field signing that in the context of holes being filled properly was great. but in this new reality where all of our top 4 needs aren't being  addressed it's a weird move.

Dude, the secondary is an absolute travesty. It's undoubtedly the worst in the NFL. It's Bradley Fletcher, Cary Williams, Leodis McKelvin, Nolan Carroll level bad. When Rodney McLeod is the best and most stabilizing force in your secondary, that's a major major issue. This is all being said with the obvious thought that they're not done adding there. But what options are left that will make any real tangible difference? If I'm Jeffrey Lurie right now, Howie better have some answers. That super bowl shine is dulling, and his strikes are adding up. You don't punt seasons with Carson ******* Wentz at quarterback. That's what's up.

Who was the last High end FA CB the Eagles signed? Think back and tell me that debacle hasn't soured his opinion on Paying top dollar for a CB?

Howie is more apt to trade for a CB or draft a CB then signing every supposed top dog out there. His history suggests that.

He traded for Darby, who then got hurt

He drafted Sidney who has never not been hurt

Drafted Mills who always gets hurt

He drafted Rasul, drafted Maddox

He's so GD shell shocked with disappointment after disappointment it's made him gun shy when it comes to the position, rightfully so IMO.

His last CB trade and drafted cb also didnt work at all shouldnt he be against those too?

Only the eagles could enter FA with the worst secondary in the NFL and somehow have it be worse 3 days later.

Should give you insight as to what to expect from the man, that's all I'm saying. You guys are flipping out and he's proven year in year out this is his approach. 

Maybe this is the year a Lito Sheppard, Sheldon Brown is actually found and taken by the Eagles in the draft? Doubtful but so is the idiotic idea Howie Roseman of all people was going to drop 90M on a CB. That's laughable.

Dl, OL, QB and CB are the four spots you spend resources in team building. So it made perfect sense to spend money there.

So he's done exactly what you just suggested in 3 of the 4 categories the past two years but since CB hasn't been addressed YET, the Man's an idiot? 👌Makes sense!

This isn't Monopoly.

In a Piss poor draft for DT after the 1st 2 DT are off the board (before #21). Who says we dont need DT given the litany of injuries last year to Malik, Cox, Timmy, ect? 

We Won the SB having one of the Best DL rotations in the NFL with a Average Secondary,  let's be real!!! Problem the past two years is, We've had Average DL play to go along with a horrific secondary. Primarily do to injury to both! 

It's clear they think highly of Mills, Sidney, Maddox and  Leblanc.  Right,  wrong, indifferent it is what it is. It still doesn't mean they have No plan!!! Just not the plan that coincides with many of your guys Mock Draft Prowless.

Get over the Hargrave signing. It was good. It upgraded our DL. Not signing anyone else is bad. The two are not tied together. We had plenty of cap for Trufant left after the Hargave deal.

It kept him off Dallas. That alone is worth 13M (And only 5.6 against the cap this year! keep that in mind). There is no context where adding Hargrave to your DT rotation isn't good. We didn't add Hargave at the cost of not signing a CB, and that's how you are looking at it. Howie could have still signed a CB. And a LB. And a S. He just didn't, period.
