    I love this kid but i wish we went Linebacker. I fear we will have to score 30pts a game to win.

    Looking very deep at alot of positions, they are building a beast. LB and OG could use another solid player. Id like go get a S but we can wait with 3 pretty solid-good ones. I dont conpletely trust Gerry, Nelson, or Fort and would like another option at LB. Same with Pryor at OG, Brooks might not be able to start the season. Even if he can he will probably miss camp and need to get up to speed. A solid blocker that can shift from OG to C would be ideal but id take a OG if i couldnt get that.

    If Carson Wentz doesn't take us to the Super Bowl in 2 years I will my personal opinion is we made a mistake about not keeping Nikki Sixx. I'm not saying that's so that he's got to win the Super Bowl but he's got to get to the Super Bowl we have so much talent on our team now it's just a matter of having the right coaching staff to bring it all together and that's probably what makes other teams different. Just imagine if Chip Kelly was the coach today with the guys we have it would be an utter disaster we win games but we wouldn't go too far because you're beat tension inside the locker room. And I remember all the people on the local radio putting Doug Pederson down that he sound like a goofball when he talked he look like a goofball he's not a good coach he'll never win a Superbowl and now they're kissing his ass.

      This Foles worship is getting insane. What did Nick do? Played 2 GREAT games. Thats it. Wentz took you 11 and 2 with a bye. Everyone wants it all. Wonder what you are gunna say when Foles goes 6 and 10? Fickle Fans

    Sanders will have a breakout season next year. He'll only see 25 percent of the offensive snaps this year. I doubt Eagles resign Howard after this year. Howard seems to be a one year rental.

    • Tahkeem Hilton2.0
      Tahkeem Hilton2.0 2 months ago

      @Fredy Villalobos Josh Adams might get stashed on the practice squad this year. And i can see Wendell Smallwood getting resigned with a bigger role.

    Ok Doug Pederson has no excuse to not use the run game this year. No pass heavy crap. Protect Wentz and mix it up for him.

    • Brenden Knowles
      Brenden Knowles 5 months ago

      It isnt the fact of them being pass happy that is the issue the issue is wentz making unecessary runs unless the game is on line and he has to run to get the first down.there is way to much weapons for him to be running or doug to call running plays for him.

      @Josh Cotterell well he was healthy enough to take a big shit on the cheating fuck Cheatriots and Stinky Tom Brady for a Superbowl Championship and be Superbowl MVP so, that's healthy enough for me and it's a level of health Carson will never get to

    • Stick32
      Stick32 5 months ago +1

      Wentz will not be able to stay healthy, not the way he plays the game. In order for him to stay "healthy" and play the way he likes to play, he would have to be built like Daunte Culpepper, Donovan McNabb, or Big Ben and my all time Eagles favorite quarterback, Scrambling Randall Cunningham! He's too light in the ass too want to take off and scramble the way he does. When he was hurt in back 🔙 seasons, my first thought was "quarterback controversy"!

    • Josh Cotterell

      sorry to break it to you but Wentz has never been healthy in high school, college, or NFL, and never will be. Foles was your savior and you cast him off

      Nah smallwood doesnt suck he isnt a franchise running back but he is good enough to be in a three running back rotation he was the eagles most consitent rb last season and he played in all the games last season.

    One thing won't happen Vander Esch for the cowgirls doesn't have a chance in solo tackling Sanders in the backfield like he did to Clement last year in our loss at the Linc on a crucial 3rd down in the fourth quarter. That was one play that had me screaming we need better talent at running back and has it ever showed up I can't wait fly eagles fly!

    He'll be a impact rookie. Once he gets a grip; on how a wanna be 3 down back must pass protect in NFL. The QB especially, the one that was the 2nd overall pick the in 2016. The Philadelphia Eagles offense is LOADED, more than any other team in the NFC East. They don't need Sanders to be Barkley, or Elliot. They just need him to be a legit, & respected, threat out the backfield. Last year coordinators and defenders had ZERO RESPECT for the eagles running game, which impacted the pass game in mainly 2 big noticing ways.
    1st thing I noticed most impacted by the lack of a run threat, was the play action game (obviously). Guy's simply weren't buying it from the eagles. So that in reality makes pass blocking even harder. You have the whole defensive line; just coming for you. Also with Carson coming back from that injury, he didn't do the thing that made him more special among other quarterbacks in the NFL. He wasn't extending plays that he wouldn't of hesitated to extend in 2017. I understand some of that is being smart, but it took away a element defenses couldn't game plan a 6'5 240lbs QB scrambling around the pocket and throwing a 54 yard dart on 3rd and 19 like he did last year.
    So now not only do defenses know we have no running game (seriously consider who last year as a running back would the opposing defense waste time game planning for) having a respected threat in the backfield now...IT'S GONNA MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE
    the unit that benefits the most out of all this I think is the defense... They shouldn't have to play as many snaps this year as they did it year if they do something went wrong with the eagle offense most likely

      this sude Sanders weighs 180-190 lbs. In today's NFL he could get hit once and decide he's never gonna run hard again. RBs drop like flies, most replaceable and least important position in the NFL

    Dillard, Sanders and Arcega is a very nice haul so far considering they started with the 25th pick.
    Sanders can do everything well and his running style reminds me of a young Shady.
    I was hoping the Eagles would pick him as he is my favorite RB in this draft.

  • TheNoEqualRecords
    TheNoEqualRecords 5 months ago +6

    Now we can get rid of Donnell and Smallwood keep Howard, sanders, clement and Adams. Howard and Adams are power runners clement and sanders I feel are versatile in the back field and receiving.

    • Tahkeem Hilton2.0
      Tahkeem Hilton2.0 5 months ago

      @TheNoEqualRecords Smallwood has special teams experience and can catch the ball and has gotten better at blocking. All Adams does is run between the tackles and has no special teams value. Being a running back in the NFL is more than just running the ball between the tackles. Only reason Smallwood wasnt getting as many touches as Adams last year because the coaching staff (Deuce Staley) werent big on his blocking skills. Not to mention Darren Sproles was taking third down reps from Smallwood because he is a better 3rd down value at running back catching the ball out of the backfield and making defenders miss tackles in open space. If anything Adams is expandable this training camp if he doesnt bring more to the offense. Adams needs to show he can be a well rounded running back this training camp. Smallwood needs to show consistency in his 4th year in the league. If Smallwood can show he's that well rounded 4th year veteran running back that can do it all then he'll essentially be taking Darren Sproles role on offense and a lock for that 4th running back spot on the roster. No more Sproles means Smallwood can become the backup punt returner and starting kick returner. Smallwood is more valuable then you think and will show it in his 4th year in the Eagles system. Adams at this point is a one year one trick pony that has no value on special teams, blocking, catching out of the backfield, and has to show reliability when it comes to ball security.

    • TheNoEqualRecords
      TheNoEqualRecords 5 months ago

      Ryley Opielski Smallwood is not better than Adams also Adams came in and took Smallwood reps because he’s better. Smallwood been here three years and hasn’t taken the next step. He’s good on special teams but the draft helped there a lot. I like Smallwood but he’s not better than Adams. Adams runs lower than Smallwood and his hips are more fluid in the hole, Adams has a stronger lower body and has more weight for the grind of a Rb in the NFL. But as training camp starts we shall see who fairs better but my money would be Adams with a full training camp and more knowledge of the offense.

    • Tahkeem Hilton2.0
      Tahkeem Hilton2.0 5 months ago

      Not sure about that. Smallwood has special team value and can put it all together in the offense (blocking & screen game) this year after getting his feet wet the last 3 years in Philly.

      What will piss me off this upcoming season is if doug still calls qb runs or sneaks for wentz either hand the ball of or get rid of it if no one is open no need for wentz to run with the ball less hits will equal a longer carreer

    • Adam Cocozza
      Adam Cocozza 5 months ago

      @Stick32 We might trade Wendell, and Josh is probably hitting the practice squad and will be called upon if there are injuries. They might tell Sproles to hold off and they will sign him if 2 guys get hurt. He could be like our Kenjon Barner insurance. Break in case of emergency!

    • Stick32
      Stick32 5 months ago +1

      @Adam Cocozza I think Sproles best years are behind him. He should not be a factor in the decision of running back. As a life long fan of Philly (Eagles, 76ers, Phillies, and Flyers) teams, I like the Steinbrenner approach. Stop with the nickle and dime process to building teams. You want to make money you have to spend money. And understand that this is a business it's not personal. When you have a new car you do understand that you have to keep it in "running" order. Tires get bald, oil needs to be replaced, air and oil filters, etc. I wrote all of this to say every team OWES it's city the best team that can be fielded. And we all know that the Eagles are a Superbowl caliber team. Let's do this!!!!!!

    Love the pick! And kudos to the staff who made this video possible. It’s one of those things you can take for granted. But these guys/gals have no idea who the Eagles will pick. So think about the amount of work it takes to be prepared for a video like this to be posted within an hour of the Eagles selecting the player. They probably have to prep for a couple hundred players and only actually talk about 4. Thanks guys!

      Honest answer why the bears got rid of Jordan Howard > he was not happy with not getting the ball and that made him a no fit for coach Nagy's mismatch offensive scheme. Bears traded his attitude despite his talent and production .

      SmithN' Wesson I’m sure it was a mixture of power/speed ratio and lack cap space, but still. He’s a great running back and will almost definitely rack up 1000 yards this season.
