    One school of thought is that 1st and 2nd round picks should demonstrate capability to make immediate contribution to the team their rookie year. Why would Philly draft a high profile QB when (except for injury replacement) that guy will most likely not take a first string snap for 5 years? Are the Eagles re-thinking the traditional QB role and would they have in essence two QBs in the backfield in certain down and distance situations? My good friend Joe says "Love the athlete, hate the pick". Eagles have multiple defensive gaps to fill and speculation is they will address that through trades (Alshon Jeffrey, although he carries a lot of dead money). Paul, I remember the WEEI days "Let's go to Tony in Revere". There's no Red Sox to whine about full time so you've got your imploding Patriots getting everyone's attention. No wonder everyone is distracted: we should be deep into hockey playoffs, watching the Phils stink it up, and drinking gin and tonics. When do 202 NFL schedules come out?

    My conspiracy theory, they're dumping Wentz for Love once the escape clause comes due in '21. A young QB named Love, in the City of Brotherly Love, with the world's most cultured & forgiving fans, has all the makings of a Hallmark TV movie!

    Btw, everyone is universally praising the Boys draft. My "glass is half empty" mentality when it comes to the Silver & Blue leads me to conclude that we're hosed!

    Wasn't Philly the only team in the NFL not to keep ANY of its' 2019 draft picks?

    On a side note, losing TB12 is the least of NE's worries - they have much bigger holes to fill.

    Sanders did a great job and is universally liked. Great future. Dillard was trade bait and he will have the opportunity to earn it or lose it on the field this year. JJ A-W underwhelmed everyone but is still with the team as well. They loaded up on receiver talent and my guess they will use the excess capacity after training camp to get more LB and DB help. Eagles drafted a lot of speed.

    EVERYONE drafted speed. Denver, SD, Oak - to keep up with KC.
    Oh - who didn't? Green Bay.

    He played 9 games and was sacked 29 times. Here's an idea, find an OL to keep the young man upright, keep Guice healthy, find a warm body at WR other than McLaurin, and then let's see what he can do. Better yet, don't, my Boys need a breather two games per year!

    They say Cam is waiting for the season to start and then join a team that loses their starter to injury. In the case of Washington, it could be if Haskins falls flat.

    How long would it take him to join a team, learn the playbook, get familiar with his skill players, etc.
    Add on top of that that ODAs, training camp, etc. may be cut short thank to COVID-19, and sounds like a
    risky plan to me...T

    Burrows or not, Bengals have a few more years of irrelevance I fear barring a mid-career renaissance by a healthy AJ Green...T

    One of the local hosts said last week he would rather have Dalton than McCarron. Although I'm not sure how to make the judgment call.
