i am happy to get him but i dont understand your points above.
I am happy that the Eagles niether recieved the best pass-rusher availible as well as a top rated safety. That to me is a sucess
I honestly don't know what we would have done with those picks had we kept them, but I am sure judging by the Eagles' past late-to-mid round picks that they are going to pick players that won't significantly improve thier team. They are good early-round drafters (sans this draft) but terrible late round drafters. You may not see this as a success, but the fact that I believe that the Eagles will not do anything significant with the picks we gave to get Spencer is success enough to me.
The Fact that they took Kolb is a success to me because he is a terrible pick for them. They already have Kelly Holcombe and A.J. feely; this helps proves my point; they already have 4 qb's! Becuase they picked him, they lose the opportunity to pick an impact player on defense, which is a sucess for the Cowboys' offense when we face them.
Spencer is also a Monster Talent; Go look up my past posts, as I have been pimping this dude for well over a month. He is going to be great for this team, not great for the Eagles.
When Spencer improves our sack-total by 15-10 by his own impact and his mere prescence taking up attention by offensive lineman, you will see that he was well worth the value of those picks given up.
I have spent too much time on this subject. Bye.
