    I cant believe all the grief over us not signing an almost over the hill CB to major bucks. I believe we could pick up someone else and be just as good. He only played one side of the field, he wouldnt have solved our problems and would cost more than our QB. Its a very good non sign.

    Man this just sucks. Thanks for the info...

    Any idea of back story on why Nnamdi would do this to Ryan(besides money of course)?

    No idea.....all I know is that the Iggles must be the best salary cap managed team in the business......because every single year they seem to be able to sign a big name FA or two.....now I know they haven't won anything but they are competitive year in and year out as a result.

    I don't mind that we didn't sign him, I'm just pissed that we have to face the eagles secondary 2x a year. Other than the SS, their secondary is loaded.

    Stephen Jones in the opening press conference talked about how you dealt with first options, uncertainty and moving on to second options. He basically said that at a certain point you have to make your best offer and give a dealine.

    Very well could be what happened. We gave our best offer someone else trumped it. Now we can move on before its too late.

    Who's going to willingly be the third corner? Could have some dissension on their hands unless Samuel accepts that role. ... But really, why should he when he's a Pro Bowl performer as a starter?

    Eagles will probably fleece a team for Samuel.

    Their GM said they plan to keep all three, but that could be just to drive up the price on Samuel.

    I can't see them keeping all three without someone moving to safety, which I don't see happening. There's just too much pride at stake for one of them to accept a lesser role. If that's not the case, I will really be surprised.

    Who's makes up the Eagles OL, DL, and Linebackers?

    You do not pay age in the NFL. You do not win that way.

    They have two Pro Bowl DE's but the rest of their front 7 is pretty mediocre. A power running game/effective screens are the way to beat the Iggles this season. I'd have Free or Tyron pulling every down for the first few series just looking for a Pro Bowl CB to lay out.

    They still don't have the personnel to stop the 22 package so I'm not too worried about them. I'm more worried about the fact that OTHER teams can't play them like we will, allowing them to accrue more wins.

    After listening to the Eagles GM I get the idea Nnamdi really wanted to play for the Eagles, and this is why we were left at the altar with no warning.

    Agent and Eagles probably had an agreement to touch base when the dust had settled on all other offers, then they topped it or possibly simply matched it.

    I hate the Eagles even more now. I have gone from being on the verge of getting a Nnamdi jersey to hoping he gets burned like Jaques Reeves.

    And I love your lack of reading comprehension. I know that there are plenty of players making more than $12 million per season. And most of them are at the positions I mentioned in my post that I would be okay with a team paying top money for -- quarterback, defensive line and offensive line. Like I said before, I would never want my team to pay that kind of money for a cornerback, safety, wide receiver, running back or linebacker in a 4-3 system. Those positions can be schemed out by a good gameplan or in the case of running back be replaced by a player giving you similar performance at a fraction of the cost.

    Yes, paying players $12 million a season can be done and can fit within a team's salary cap, but you're fooling yourself if you don't think that paying a player that much money doesn't mean that a team won't have to cut back at other positions. If they're able to hit in the draft and fill those positions with cheap, quality players, then it'll work out for them. Go ahead and sniff the Eagle's jock all you want. For all their smart front office moves, they don't have a single Super Bowl trophy to show for it. Regular season success and playoff disappointments are hardly what I want as a fan. The Giants are the class of the NFC East, having gone to two Super Bowls in the past decade and winning one. I'd much rather have my team emulate them than the Eagles.
