I mean in a Madden sense what a lot of fun. 

In a completely bat ish crazy way? Yeah again lots of fun. 

But no thanks.

This is the same franchise that took a chance on Michael Vick in 2009 while they already had Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb on the roster.

While I think it's still highly unlikely that Cam Newton becomes an Eagle, you can't rule out anything with this team.

And let's not forget... The Eagles are a QB factory.

He's been pretty beat up the last couple years I think most understand he is a better QB when he can run and take on tacklers. If he can't do those things he is just another bad QB

He's accomplished more than Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston yet is still unsigned. There definitely has to be concerns about his health and/or his willingness to be a QB2, but I think Cam can afford to wait this out.

The Jaguars don't have much behind Gardner Minshew and it remains to be seen if he's the real deal or just a one-year wonder. The Patriots may come back around to Newton if Jarrett Stidham turns out to not be that good after all. There's always the potential for a surprise QB injury to a team with no good backup options, but playoff aspirations when their QB1 is healthy (Seahawks?).

yeah he is probably just waiting for a team in panic mode, that way he can demand his price

Would he and Kapernick battle for the back up spot?

With Hurts on the practice squad 😂

That statement is going to rank up there with Gold Standard and Dream Team.  

I swear, these people in this organization, they just can't help themselves ... they open their mouths and birds fly out.

Well, much like how the Dream Team hype led to the downfall of many of the Eagles players and coaches associated with that 2011 team, I think this "QB Factory" phrase and the Jalen Hurts selection will be tied to Howie Roseman's future as the GM (at least in the traditional sense).

I don't think Jeffrey Lurie would outright fire Roseman if Hurts busts (nor should he), given the recent Super Bowl win, but I can certainly see him restructuring the front office with another "football mind" in charge of the draft and player evaluations, while Howie manages the salary cap, trade negotiations, etc... similar to what they did with Joe Douglas. Considering that Douglas was in the front office during the Super Bowl run, it shouldn't be a huge surprise if Howie makes more draft blunders without a traditional GM type on board to provide input.

Has to right? I mean in fact for me it's worse. It's worse on the basis that the point of the NFL is not to be a QB factory so it really makes no sense.

None of the draft picks during joe Douglas era have proven to be any better. It was the free agents and draft picks before joe that were the core of the super bowl run.

Did he kneel at the national anthem?

Just kidding.

Actually I think after the initial wave of free agency it seems there are lots of good players out there, but teams are waiting to see what happens.  Clowney, Jason Peters, etc.

Signed with the Patriots.

It looks like a deal was in the works for some time, but they needed to iron out the details. Good for him.
