With Earl Thomas
It wouldn't be fair
I tried to tell em but no one would listen.
Seriously both the Giants and Eagles may go secondary in rd 1. I think it's a very good chance he winds up playing against us twice, instead of for us.
Giants maybe but if the Eagles look over any LB that falls into their lap they are punch drunk.
Next year Stewart Bradley will be back and Will Witherspoon is a good LB, so it's not a first round need. Atleast not enough to reach if a guy you like is there.
Even the starters who are hurt are average athletes and undersized. I hope they don't do anything about it but they need some help.
Stewart Bradley definately isn't undersized (6'4 255) and while he may be an averege athlete, he did have 100+ tackles in 08 (2nd year) before tearing his acl in training camp. This was a huge blow for the Eagles, and don't expect the Eagles to draft a LB to replace him.
Even Will Witherspoon (6'1 240) has good size and above averege athleticsm. They may go LB early but don't be suprised if the go secondary first
I would agree with this. Eagle LB's were rotten most of the game.
You're projecting Slate...but are probably right.
Didn't see many people disagreeing with you.......
I keep reading that some teams are looking at Earl as a CB... FWIW...
I'd love to have that guy in our secondary but I just don't think it's got any shot of happening. Someone else will likely snatch him up before we can get him.
earl will be a steeler or giant i imagine,unfortunately. will be a great pick for us if he's there but i just really doubt he will be. He might be one of the only players at a position who could get some playing time next year.
