    Trades for Wentz, Darby, Ajayi. FA signings like Jeffrey and T Smith. Meanwhile, we sign Paea and Nolan Carroll and make no trades. And reach for guys like Taco...

    Perhaps this organization still needs to get better at the gm position. But.....

    Wentz isn't a good example when we got an equally good franchise QB without having to trade up.

    It's a process though.

    Not close to equally good, one is an MVP candidate, the other is just a dude.

    Defensively I agree the most. Think that our Offense can be as talented as theirs.

    When you give up 4th round picks for guys averaging 3.3 ypc and 0 tds with a crickety knee...it isn't hard to do.

    Man I am as big of a Dak fan as the rest, and I hate the eagles. But I wouldn’t consider Wentz just a dude.

    That’s going a bit far.

    Wow, the eagles hit a win streak, all of a sudden the fans of an organization with 5 sb wins is jealous of the 0 wins of the sb club.

    Think about that.

    The eagles have to win one before i buy this crap, and i had to have to listen to their propaganda for years.

    Eagles FA department is killing ours. Didn't we waste a 5th rounder on a cb who barely plays. Smh.

    One team was 13-3. One team was 6-10 (that last game was a joke, we would have won if we didn't bench our starters).

    The 13-3 team headed into the offseason and this was their plan:

    - Added Nolan Carroll
    - Added Stephen Paea
    - Added Damontre Moore

    The 6-10 team headed into the offseason and this is what they did:

    - Swapped third rounders to get Jernigan who is playing lights out for them
    - Traded a slot WR and mid round pick for Darby
    - Signed Jeffrey to a one year deal with no long term cap problems

    And this is on top of the previous offseason where they traded two bad contracts to swap #1s that allowed them to then get Wentz. Then they turned around and got a #1 back from Minnesota for Bradford and that turned into Derek Barnett.

    I mean it's a completely and utter joke at this point. One FO is creative, aggressive. The other is boring, slow and steady like a Rod Marinelli defense.

    It's no surprise one team is on the cusp of making a run in the NFC and the other is doing what it always does............. ride the rollercoaster right back to mediocrity.

    There is nothing dumber than the "we have 5 SBs" angle.

    Great, what are those 5 SBs getting us this year? Or next year? Or the year after that?

    Nothing. I have no idea if the Eagles will win a SB but what I do know is that one franchise is closer to winning one in the future than the other.

    Living on success from 20+ years ago doesn't really mean much, man. Half of the members on this board weren't even alive the last time this team did anything worth talking about.

    The Eagles get a pass for playing practically no one. When the Cowboys had their 11 game winning streak last year, they weren't given the benefit of the doubt that the Eagles are. Yeah, their front office is great until they get exposed like they do every year.

    While I agree that the QB position was arguably a push, I think the actual point being made by the OP is that their aggressive posture (and not the passive one we often take) is paying dividends and that they’re now doubling down when a SB is in sight. The point about Wentz is they “went and got their man” and didn’t stand pat saying “we’re good” with Bradford - for whom they gave up quite a bit. Got to respect to aggressiveness paying off.
