Ok take a gander at the roster and look at the ages. Who on this team is under 30 that you really feel good about moving forward?

Let's look

QB- Carson Wentz (27)- The beginning of this season has shaken my confidence but push comes to shove I think he is a top 12 QB

RB- Miles Sanders (23) Stud

WR- Jalen Reagor (21) Certainly can't tell much after these two games, but I believe in him, so I'll put him on the list

TE- Dallas Goedart (25)- Looks like another stud TE in the making. 

DE- Josh Sweat (23) Looks good in flashes. I have more faith in him than Barnett

DT- Fletcher Cox (29)- Still a beast but for how much longer. Barely under the threshold here

DT- Javon Hargrave (27)- Haven't seen it in Philly yet, but I'll put him here anyway

CB- Darius Slay (29)- a top CB and there is a noticable difference with him back there, but just under the cut off. How much longer does he got?

 

That's it man. That's all I got. Even past that there aren't many players that I am just holding out blind faith for at this stage.

Dillard? Maybe, hopefully but hard to get excited after this brutal start to his career. Ertz is 29 but I don't really see a long term future here anymore. I liked Hightower, Driscoll and Wallace coming out, but nothing to really report there yet. Will Parks? Is he a something? Who knows.

 

Point is.....yikes. Old, hurt and crappy. Not a good combo.

 

Yup, on first glance that looks awful... but lets compare to another team. Now I'm not going to take a team like the 49ers who obviously have more young talent than most, they just won 13 games and made playoffs for 1st time last year. Cowboys seem pretty far. I believe we have the same record, maybe 1 game give or take, since 2018.

 

QB- Dak (27)- Top 12 QB 

RB- Zeke (25)- Stud, all we can do is hope he slows down and falls off a cliff after all these carries he's accumulated.

WR- Cooper (26)- Top 15 WR

WR- Gallup (24) - Not sure where he'd rank but certainly a major asset and could get better.

WR - CeDee Lamb (21)- Best looking rookie WR thus far. 

OG- Zack Martin (29)- Will be 30 in a few months, but has been pretty injury free and iOL seem to have longevity so you can count him in future plans.

OT- Tyron Smith (29)- Will also be 30 in a few months, don't really think he should be considered part of future plans given injury history, especially if we're not going to include Lane for Eagles.

OT- La'El Collins (27) - Very good tackle. 

DE- DeMarcus Lawrence (28) - Similar to Cox, nearing end of his prime and lately seems best days may be behind him.

LB- LVE (24) - Stud, but bad luck prone like his predecessor Lee. Still easily gets a mention.

LB- Jaylon Smith (25)- Stud.

CB- Trevon Diggs (23)- Hasn't done anything but if we're including Reagor and Lamb as core, I think their 2nd rounder deserves a mention.

 

 

Yeah, they blow us away. Going to be a long few years for us until we ever field a great team again like in 2017. 3 years minimum I would say, but obviously could be over a decade as there was a pretty big gap before that 2017 team.

I'm actually starting to wonder if Cox is already washed. 

Give him some linebackers and he'll be good

Don't think it works that way.

Trevor Lawrence is our future.

Can he throw, catch, block, rush the passer, cover WRs and coach? If so, we are set.

Not after the tie he's not. Thanks Doug.

We will still probably be 0-5-1 after 6 games. We are still in the running.

I think he is. Or at least past his prime. The last two years playing such a high snap count took a toll on him.

He played better today.
