  1. Ok Mr. Eyesight - let's revisit this conversation at the end of the 2021 season. I will gladly eat crow if I am wrong.
  2. From where I'm sitting, this team is probably as poorly situated as I've seen in over 20 years. At least during the Rhodes era, there was some leftover talent for Andy to build a core around. The Reid years, but for a blip here and there, were good years. Chip had two 10 win seasons and brought in some good talent. The team made history when Joe Douglas signed some great short term veteran contracts, and they caught lightening in a bottle in 2017. And now, a largely aging and depleted roster with many holes, and an upside down cap. An unknown quantity at QB who appears to have a ceiling. An uber young and unproven coaching staff. And worst of all, a front office that is poor at evaluating talent. Call me a pessimist, but I'm not seeing anything that is giving me any reason to be enthusiastic about this team. 2020 cut the rug out from under this team, and I'm not sure when things will be on an upswing again for the Eagles. Doesn't appear to be anytime soon.
  3. We don't know what goes on or does not go on behind closed doors. But that's quite a leap you're making blaming the parent for the kids' problems.
  4. If the return is a First and Third, it's not so bad. In 2016, Eagles traded a first in 2017 and a second in 2018 in exchange for a swap of first round picks in 2016 along with the Browns 3rd and 4th round picks in 2016. There was also the heist with Miami where the Eagles dumped the contracts of Byron Maxwell and Kiko Alonso and moved up five spots in the first round. The bigger disappointment is all the time and energy devoted to Wentz development just to see it blow up in the team's face. Lion's share of the fault goes to team coaching and management on this one.
  5. If you look at his entire body of work throughout his pro career, 2020 was really an outlier. The bigger concern coming into last season was injuries.
  6. I'm just resigned to the fact that the Eagles are going to be a bad team for a few seasons - and we're talking NY Giant/NY Jet level bad.
  7. While he wasn't drafted in the first round, Steve Young was a former first pick in the USFL star studded supplemental draft and was brought in to compete with Joe Montana.
  8. My theory on Wentz' break with the organization goes to the year 2020 during the riots this summer. If you remember, pro locker rooms became a cauldron for social justice. Let's face it, Wentz is not the poster boy sjw. Guy has Republican written all over his face. We saw what happened to Drew Brees. Wentz didn't have the stature of Brees. I would think that a large chunk of the locker room gravitated away from him and made his life miserable. I wouldn't be surprised if there were any outlandish threats that we didn't hear about. People can forget how crazy last June and its aftermath got.
  9. Here's the kicker - Wentz is best positioned to bounce back in Indy. It's a perfect situation for him - familiarity with his old OC and old QB Coach, good OL, small town Midwestern market. Combine that with starting out with a clean slate, new teammates, no back biting Philly media and fans. With a situation like that, it's much more likely that he plays good again. If you look at the big picture, 2020 was an aberration in so many ways.
  10. From what I've read, while the cap hit is massive, the Colts are paying his salary. https://theeagleswire.usatoday.com/2021/02/18/philadelphia-eagles-dead-cap-hit-nfl-history-wentz-trade-colts/
  11. Well when you think about it, the trade SAVES the Eagles a considerable amount of money. Looks like you're referring to the cap hit.
  12. Look at the QB carousel this year. We'll see if Hurts is the real deal. I'm not sold yet. If not, there are multiple ways to get a good QB onto the roster. An elite QB is a different story.
  13. This Wentz trade was Hinkiesque if you ask me - acquiring assets for a salary dump. And moving on from a talented player to boot. It's common knowledge that the Birds are taking a huge cap hit this year by trading Wentz. My question for the capologists out there is, how does the team's cap look in 2022 and thereafter?
  14. Look for the Eagles to be a bad team for at least 3 years. I hope to Gd the team doesn't use its first round pick to select a QB
  15. If his coach wants Wentz, he's not playing it too smart. Eagles are very capable of sitting on their hands or dealing him elsewhere.
