What About McCaffrey?

Posted: March 28th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 235 Comments »

We’ve talked about Leonard Fournette and Dalvin Cook as 1st round RB possibilities for the Eagles. What about Christian McCaffrey?

I think McCaffrey would be a great fit in the Eagles offense. He is incredibly versatile, with the ability to make plays as a runner, receiver and returner. McCaffrey can run inside or outside. He can line up in the slot and kill LBs. He was amazingly productive at Stanford and then had a tremendous showing at the Combine. McCaffrey is an outstanding prospect.

Put simply, he is a weapon.

That’s also kind of the problem.

McCaffrey reminds me a bit of Reggie Bush, who you may remember was also an amazing college player. Bush is one of the most dynamic college stars of all time. He had a solid NFL career, but never came close to being the same kind of player as he was in college. Check out his NFL stats.

The question isn’t whether I’d like McCaffrey to be an Eagle, but rather is he worth the #14 pick? You and I can make our case, but the real key here is Doug Pederson. He would have to have a plan for how to use McCaffrey. If you say “He’s a talented weapon, let’s add him to the mix”, then he’s not worth pick 14. If Pederson has a vision for how he wants the offense to look and McCaffrey is part of that, then there is a good case for him being worth a pick that high.

If you watch the following clips, you’ll certainly think McCaffrey is worth a high pick.

That most certainly is a Shady cut.


The argument against McCaffrey really boils down to value. Is he more icing than cake? Can a weapon be considered the kind of foundational player you build around?

The argument for him is that he immediately helps your running game and passing game. This isn’t just taking a RB at 14. Dalvin Cook is a good receiver, but he can’t line up in the slot and do things like that. As I think about it, you could find some similarities between Brian Westbrook and McCaffrey.

5-8, 200
26 reps
37-inch VJ
7.09 in the 3-cone

5-11, 202
10 reps
37.5 VJ

The Eagles drafted Westy to be a role player and he became much better than they ever anticipated. The Saints spent the #2 overall pick on Bush and he was a notch below Westrbook. He proved not to be worth a pick that high.

McCaffrey won’t go in the Top 5 and he won’t last to the 3rd round. Is he worth pick 14?

I don’t think so.

We’ll have to wait and find out what the Eagles think.

    I think he could probably smell the grass on that cutback in the second clip! How does an individual stop that quickly and get that low? That was impressive to say the least.

  2. 2 meteorologist said at 4:57 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Why did he need to bend so much? Shady would have been able to make the cut more explosively imo

  3. 3 Mitchell said at 10:06 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    No idea man, its crazy that he could though. I’m marveling at the feat itself more than the efficacy of the movement.

  4. 4 Howie Littlefinger said at 9:13 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    6.5 on the 3 cone drill is crazy good. I wouldn’t mind sliding back and picking him up around pick 20 if they believe in him that much.

  5. 5 bubqr said at 9:15 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    He looks like such a great fit for the Eagles, but I think the dropoff in talent/potential production compared to later in draft is not as steep for RB as it is for DE/DT/WRs/CBs, so I’d rather not spend 14.

  6. 6 Rellihcs said at 9:16 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    I am rarely on the “nay” side with talented players like this. But i can’t see wanting to spend anything higher than a 4th or a low 3 in this draft for him. I think he’s most definitely fun to watch. In college.

    I just think that there is much much better value in rounds 1-3, and there are other very good RB prospects.

  7. 7 Dan said at 1:39 AM on March 29th, 2017:

    What???? Have you seen him play? He is definitely a 1st round talent.

  8. 8 bdbd20 said at 9:17 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    If we hadn’t signed Jeffrey, I’d be more in favor of CMac. With not obvious OL at 14, it’s gotta be the CB they like best, or pass rusher.

  9. 9 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:20 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Don’t sleep on round 1 defensive tackle

  10. 10 Call Me Carlos the Dwarf said at 9:39 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    I think he’d be a great 2nd rounder, who’s going in the late first.

    Dude’s just too skinny to hold up with 15 carries a game…but I wouldn’t be surprised if he turns into an Edelman type guy in the slot.

  11. 11 A_T_G said at 10:14 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    Although I have fun picturing him confounding opposing defenses, I think this is probably accurate. He will be a player that other teams’ fans all wish they would have gotten, and his team’s fans will be wishing they hadn’t used such a high pick.

  12. 12 Ray888 said at 9:47 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    I’m not viewing selecting McCaffrey as a yes or no question, but rather a yes if:
    1. He’s obtained later in the 1st round on a trade back that produces an extra 3rd round pick
    2. A trade of Mathews(WR) that also produces an additional 3rd rounder
    There’d be a surplus of passing options if McCaffrey was selected w/o subtracting one of the existing WR’s. W/o a defensive deference maker @ #14, there needs to be more chances for solid upgrades on defense that 2 additional 3rd choices would provide.

  13. 13 Sb2bowl said at 9:58 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    Matthews won’t fetch a 3rd this year- perhaps a 5th at best; he’s going into his contract year

  14. 14 Ray888 said at 10:23 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    What team is Chip making personnel decisions for….. Did read someone (reasonably reputable) projecting that Mathews could be traded for a 4th now or for a 3rd on draft day. His next contract should be doable for most teams (just not the Eagles).

  15. 15 Nick C said at 10:26 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    Matthews* contract is doable for the Eagles if they want to keep him. Even if they extend Jeffery next year. I don’t think any of us will think the sky is falling if he is traded though. That being said, I would rather keep him if the return is minimal.

  16. 16 Sb2bowl said at 10:36 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    That’s the challenge- with what looks like a deep WR draft, and the fact that while productive, Matthews really isn’t a special talent. He’s consistent, a team guy, and someone that Wentz trusts- but will he be worth $8-$10m per year? His stats say yes, but he was fed the ball in the Kelly offense early. Last year as the primary option, he struggled.

    Will the addition of Jeffrey and Smith help him? Hopefully, and probably. But rather than spending money on someone that is a product of the system, why not allocate those resources to someone that helps to define the system.

  17. 17 greenblood0118 said at 3:57 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Matthews needs to learn some NFL WR fundamentals like catching and toe dragging…then I’ll feel better saying he’s trustworthy.

  18. 18 johhnyblaze said at 12:59 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I agree

  19. 19 D3FB said at 10:27 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    David Murphy? The guy who thinks signing Alshon to a comically reasonable deal is bad?

  20. 20 Sb2bowl said at 10:36 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    Perhaps Fox sports? I don’t think we could trade Matthews back to a college team, that’s not how the NFL works.

  21. 21 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:21 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I like the kid but I doubt he brings enough Value to spend the 14th pick on. I’d rather Get a starting DT in round 1 over a RB any day

  22. 22 Ray888 said at 12:38 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Question is starting be what, if any, at any position, is still going to be there at #14?

  23. 23 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:41 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Well you can bet that there are at least 14 players in this draft with legit round 1 grades. Personally I’ll be surprised to see McCaffrey to top 20
    Think it’s important that we spend the 14th pick on a kid who goes on to become one of our best players. I’ll take that at any position

  24. 24 A_T_G said at 10:09 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    “McCaffrey reminds me a bit of Reggie Bush.”

    That is not nice, Tommy. Not nice at all. Mainly because I can only think of one way to refute it, and I am not sure Bush’s lack of harmonica skills will allow me to rest comfortably.

  25. 25 Mac said at 1:26 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    The only thing I remember about Bush was him getting laid out by Sheldon Brown. To me, that sums up his career.


  26. 26 Gian GEAGLE said at 1:30 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Sheldon brown, the last time an Eagles front office successfully evaluated an outside CB prospect, and this city used to be known for a long history of quality corners

  27. 27 Mac said at 1:52 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I know there’s a lot of disagreement on this, but I am all in on Marlon Humphrey at 14. You can talk me out of it if Solomon Thomas is there… but he might be the only prospect I want more than Humphrey. And I’d like to see the team draft another CB prospect in the 3rd/4th.

  28. 28 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:17 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    im really poorly informed when it comes to this draft class, and generally CB is the position I hate trying to evaluate in round 1.I try to avoid round 1 corners at all costs. The past few years the only rd 1 corner prospects I truley ever believed in where Desmond Trufant and Marcus Peters. It’s just a position I hate trying to evaluate and I saw so many round 1 corners who failed to live up to the hype.
    With that said. I recognize that CB is currently like our weakest position And its one of the more valued positions in TODAYS NFL. it becomes even more important with all the WR talent in our division. So I would be thrilled if the Eagles see a CB as the BPA at #14 when its our turn to pick, but I would be mortified if they took a corner even tho there was better talent available.
    im really not familiar with this years crop of corners, I can only go by what I read, which is probably even worse because there are so many different conflicting opinions on each prospect.
    I read a steller review of the OSU kid Conley yesterday strongly endorsing him at #14, but I can’t remember who’s opinion it was. Conversly I also heard people say that he is being overrated and that he belongs in 45-60 range. So I have no idea what to think of this years CB prospects
    After Lattimore, I literaly have no clue who will be the next 3 corners off the board especially with Jones getting hurt. We been needing a true #1 CB for years now. if the Eagles see a CB at #14 they strongly believe can fill that role, Great! But Im Barely familiar with the top prospect at each position this year.

  29. 29 A_T_G said at 1:40 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    That is my favorite play of all time.

  30. 30 Ark87 said at 2:25 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I remember jumping off the couch jubilantly yelling profanities in that play. I clearly remember the gradual emotional drop off from that point on. OH MY GOD THAT WAS THE GREATEST HIT OF ALL TIME, AND THE FUMBLE WE ARE GOING TO WIN!!!! No? Not a fumble? Fine still one of the biggest hits ever, you don’t lose after making that kind of statement. And then we lost.

  31. 31 A_T_G said at 3:01 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Yep, I rode that same wave. Still, that play was the most pure, clean, perfect piece of football.

    He read it perfectly, reacted perfectly, and executed perfectly. Combine that with the aftermath of Bush struggling and failing to downplay the effects, but ultimately not being hurt, and the cardboard box comments afterwards and that is my all time favorite.

    The fact that it was ultimately meaningless in a game we ended up losing may say something about my fanhood, too.

  32. 32 Iskar36 said at 10:56 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    Spider chart comparisons by no means are a great way to compare players, but I did find this interesting:

    The two most comparable RBs to McCaffrey according to their spider chart are Wendell Smallwood and Kenjon Barner.

  33. 33 eaglefansocal-go Joe D said at 11:16 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    I think what it shows me is that if McCaffrey can add strength and a little muscle weight to his frame he could be a great player, pro bowl type.

  34. 34 Dan said at 1:36 AM on March 29th, 2017:

    Why if you want him whats trading back 4 picks going to get you vs losing the player you want.

    I don’t know what round those WR’s will be drafted but it appears something we’ve all been talking about — Eagles will target a WR in the draft.

  37. 37 ACViking said at 11:35 AM on March 28th, 2017:

    My sentiments exactly

  50. 50 Sb2bowl said at 12:01 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    He will provide depth and leadership- good upside signing and provides insurance in case Vinny can’t put it together again. Works for me, didn’t think we’d look for a veteran but it makes sense.

  51. 51 Nick C said at 12:06 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Time to add a bargain bin corner, and go into the draft to take the best player. Unless Howie has something up his sleeve besides overpaying backup QBs.

  52. 52 Sb2bowl said at 12:09 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Agreed but there’s not much left

  53. 53 D3FB said at 12:25 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Yea it’s pretty damn thin.

    It’s pretty much: Sam Shields, Altruan Verner, Patrick Robinson and Shareece Wright.

  54. 54 Insomniac said at 12:34 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Do you think there’s any more possible trade targets?

  55. 55 D3FB said at 12:50 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Fuller has to 100% be on the block.

    Darqueze Dennard would seem to be available perhaps but I don’t think he’s ever been good.

    I’m still skeptical the Falcons can keep Trufant long term, but even if they wanted out of it they would make you bleeeeeed and the money wouldn’t work either.

  56. 56 Insomniac said at 1:03 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    What do you think Fuller’s value is? Dennard should be cheap since he doesn’t get on the field much according to this graph.


    Seems like Fuller and Dennard are both potential guys at this point of their career.

  57. 57 D3FB said at 1:10 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Fuller has played well in the NFL though. Got hurt and been up and down since then. Maybe you’re buying Nate Allen, maybe he just needs a change of scenery. I can’t say I’ve watched any of the Bears or done the tape work on him since he came out (and some clips from his rookie year). My initial proposition was a 4 this year and a 4 next year but Chicago moved aggressively to replace him, so probably a framework of a 4th or 5th.

    I never liked Dennard. Always wayyyy to handsy. I wouldn’t really have interest.

  62. 62 Bert's Bells said at 1:42 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Bargain corner isn’t worth the price. The DBs have been bottom of the barrel for a couple years, if there’s any time to roll the dice on bottom of the roster guys/draft picks it’s now.

    Don’t even bother with the re-treads.

  63. 63 Bert's Bells said at 12:03 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Always good to load up on pass rushers.

  64. 64 D3FB said at 12:17 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Ehhhh would have prefered Devin Taylor over a 32 year old who produced pretty much exactly what Barwin did last year on similar snap counts.

  65. 65 Insomniac said at 12:27 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Taylor probably would have costed a bit more.

  66. 66 D3FB said at 12:32 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I mean at this point everybody is going to sign prove it deals. Taylors coming off 4.5 sacks, and has a career high of 7.

    I don’t think it’s going to be that much more, and you would hope that they could make the case that 500k-1million right now is less beneficial than going to play for the coach who drafted you and having a really strong year.

  67. 67 Insomniac said at 12:40 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Perhaps they were interested but neither side could agree on the money? Guys that last this long either want more money than they are worth or teams just aren’t interested until after the draft.

  68. 68 D3FB said at 1:05 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Ehhhh I would have held out for him. It’s not like if we had to play tomorrow the DE position is a dumpster fire. Plus with the draft there will be a point where we’re on the clock and a DE is the BPA. As it stands now it’s gonna be hard to find reps for anybody they don’t take really high.

  69. 69 Bert's Bells said at 1:39 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Fair enough. Still wouldn’t say it’s a bad move.

  70. 70 Brian Pillion said at 4:07 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    From what I’ve seen of Long publicly/politically, he seems to check a lot of the same locker-room leadership boxes Barwin did, on what I assume is an (effectively) one-year deal at much lower cost. And while I realize it’s probably a long shot at this point to expect anything super substantive growth-wise out of Marcus Smith (or to a lesser extent, Alex McCalister), the ideal long-term situation at DE is still probably that one of those two makes a jump to being at least a solid #3 you can control cheaply for a few years (you’d have to re-up Smith pre or in-season). Signing a vet like Long seems like a good: he can be a cheap & effective #2/3 guy for 1 to 2 yrs, has the right temperament to aid in extracting whatever might still be there in Smith/McCalister, and gives you more freedom to follow your draft board this April.

  71. 71 meteorologist said at 5:01 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    “… When we were able to get a guy who brings a lot of the same qualities [as Barwin] on and off the field and things that we value, we thought that it made us better not only now, but the legacy he can have going forward to the players on our team.”

    If they view him as a cheaper Barwin, it’s not so bad. It’s as if Barwin took the pay cut they were offering

  72. 72 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:14 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    No idea how much Long has left in the tank, but I image he is similar to Barwin at this stage of his career. It would have been really bad going into the draft having not replaced Barwin and Bennie. Hopefully they can make a modest signing at DT and CB which would allow us to go into the draft without having to desperately target and reach for certain positions. DL is too important to replace two starters with two in house backups.

  73. 73 xmbk said at 2:44 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Much more of a pass rusher, esp in this scheme.

  74. 74 Insomniac said at 12:25 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    “Is he more icing than cake?”

    I think he is. He’s not a foundational player. You’ll be using him for 15-20 touches a game like Sproles and Sproles is just an icing on the cake player. If we’re going to stick with the cake metaphor then the team would still be making the second layer of the cake right now. We still don’t know what flavor cake Doug wants.

  75. 75 D3FB said at 12:37 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    RBs with more than 20 touches a game last year: 5

    RBs with more than 18 touches a game last year: 9

    The days of 25 carries a game are gone

  76. 76 Insomniac said at 12:48 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Great info as always but do we really need another guy like that on the team? I would much rather have guys like Zeke or Bell at 14 than McCaffery.

  77. 77 D3FB said at 1:00 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Stylistically or volume?

    Volume for all the hype about Zeke putting the team on his back he had 23.4 touches a game (Bell had 28 but only played 12, so the staff figured he could handle a heavier load)

    Stylistically we are still a primary zone team. McCaffery is a stud zone RB.


  78. 78 D3FB said at 1:01 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    For the record I’m still anti RB round 1, but if we took one McCaffery would be the one I would want.

  79. 79 Insomniac said at 1:06 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Stylistically. I get the feeling that McCaffery will be the same runner at the next level.

  80. 80 D3FB said at 1:16 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    He’s got the best vision and burst, the two most important traits.

    Nobody is the same back they were in college.

    Zeke averaged 6.9 yards per carry in college.

    Of the early guys I’d rather have McCaffery than build my entire offense around Fournette, deal with character concerns with Mixon or Cook (and bad athleticism), or gamble that a guy who was the backup in college until the last 7 weeks is an NFL RB1

  81. 81 ACViking said at 1:52 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Coach –

    McCaffery has loads of nift, too.

    Mix vision with burst . . . you get nift.

  83. 83 Sb2bowl said at 2:48 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Not according to my research. See below


  84. 84 Insomniac said at 4:42 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I’d say Fournette has the best burst in the class, dude has unreal acceleration when he can get to his second gear. MIxon I’d say is arguably better as a prospect just due to his frame alone. Cook is completely off my list at this point.

  85. 85 Dan said at 1:34 AM on March 29th, 2017:

    On top of it, McCaffrey makes Matthews expendable and a replacement for Sproles which Pederson used heavily.

  86. 86 Dan said at 1:32 AM on March 29th, 2017:

    Hahaha ya of course I would like to have a top 2 RB as well. McCaffrey is worth the 14th overall pick. Others are as well. I wouldn’t mind Davis, Williams, McCaffrey or some D but I’d take McCaffrey over Cook in a heart beat.

  87. 87 Ark87 said at 12:44 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    He seems like the type of player you need to build wrinkles into your offense to maximize, I don’t want to say “build around”, but if the offense is going that way anyway… probably still not worth pick 14 to me. But Howie is a mover. If he gets tempted to move up for a top tier player that drops to around 10. And he can’t get it done, there’s a chance he trades down into a place where McCaffrey is in play ( not specifically to go after a different player, just that Howie doesn’t like just missing out on the top tier and staring at an ocean of second tier players, he’ll get value if he can).

  88. 88 Insomniac said at 12:55 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    IMO, he is exactly that type of player. While it would be nice to have him, it probably wouldn’t kill you to pass on him too. Howie does play the board very well but there’s a new element this year, Joe Douglas. I’m not sure if Douglas will be a big enough of a factor to influence Howie on trades.

  89. 89 Bert's Bells said at 1:25 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    mmmm….. Sproles….. mmmmm….

  90. 90 A_T_G said at 1:29 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Just so it isn’t one of those no-mix dump cakes. The last guy tried those.

  91. 91 Insomniac said at 4:44 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    “super quick, no-mix dump cakes.”

    the same material Ryan Mathews’s bones are made of?

  92. 92 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:36 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Do we know when the Eagles are expecting Ryan Mathews and Ron Brooks to be healthy?

  93. 93 Tumtum said at 1:51 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Think we will know on Ryan because they will release him according to Tommy.

  94. 94 Gian GEAGLE said at 1:52 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    That’s basically my point for asking, when do we think we will finally be able to get those contracts off the books? Tho I’d be down to hold on to Ron Brooks if he can be what he was before the injury. Nice special team player and I like the physicality he brought to the nickel spot. Obviously Ryan Mathews has to go ASAP
    Hope we don’t have to wait Til the draft to see Roseman execute trades.

  95. 95 Birds4Life said at 2:18 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Think I remember reading that Mathews’ next checkup will be in June or July, so he will be around at least until then.

  96. 96 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:34 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    That sucks. Wonder if he even plays in the NFL next season

  97. 97 Birds4Life said at 2:46 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I don’t think that he will. He was always hurt before this. He will turn 30 during next season. And now he has that major neck injury to add to the long list of other injuries he’s suffered. Think his career might be over.

  98. 98 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:48 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Yikes Teez Tabor ran a 4.7? He managed to run even slower than he did at the combine
    Still holding out hope that Roseman pulls a CB out his ass via a trade before the draft

  99. 99 Sb2bowl said at 1:17 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    The Black Hole?

    “The Black (Glory) Hole?

  101. 101 Insomniac said at 1:14 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Apparently Timmy Jernigan is on the trade block. Don’t know if he could play in a wide 9 but maybe it’s worth a discussion.

  102. 102 D3FB said at 1:18 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Draft Analysis:

    “The Ravens stay true to their board. His size is a
    three-technique, but he plays better as a nose tackle. The Ravens just
    got more stout inside.” — Mike Mayock

    He’s on the last year of his deal though. So you would just be trading a pick to have Jernigan and Allen on expiring contracts and not wanting to pay the NT.

  103. 103 Tumtum said at 1:49 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    what happened to the extension they were working up for beau?

  104. 104 D3FB said at 2:06 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Was likely mostly posturing.

    Plus DT market is all out of whack.

  105. 105 Insomniac said at 4:46 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Rumors has it they want like 3rd or 4th. He’s like 24 right now and he has been pretty productive. I don’t watch enough Ravens game to know how good Jernigan has been but I liked him a lot back then.

  106. 106 Sb2bowl said at 4:48 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    That’s a tough sell on a deal which expires after this year.

    Maybe we can trade them Matthews for Jernigan

  107. 107 Insomniac said at 4:51 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Joe Douglas needs to start hyping up Matthews then. I think I would be ok giving Jernigan the money they offered to Bennie.

  108. 108 scratcherk said at 1:22 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Theres a lot of Long Cox on our DL jokes going on over at BGN. My favorite is that if Hart stayed on the DL, it would have been Long Hart Cox.

  109. 109 Gian GEAGLE said at 1:27 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    We would need to find a Defensive tackle named “Black”, and slide Cox over to Right Defensive end

  110. 110 Nick C said at 1:29 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Something like a Hart Johnson is blocking a Graham of Long Cox? There has to be something there.

  111. 111 A_T_G said at 1:45 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Myself and my friend (Packers Fan) went to the Packers/Eagles Monday night game this past season and I wore my Black Cox Jersey and he had a Clinton-Dix jersey…. it was one phallic time lol

  113. 113 Tumtum said at 2:16 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Long was not resigning with NE for a more full-time role. Why would he sign here? Guess no one actually wanted him.

  114. 114 scratcherk said at 2:20 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Better SB odds.

  115. 115 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:29 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    We are a few weeks into free agency, he probably couldn’t find what he was looking for and settled for what he thought provided the best opportunity. we don’t have a single DE who registered more than 6 sacks last year, so it’s reasonable to think this was one of the paths of least resistence to earning himself playing time.
    Jonathon Hankins said he wanted a lucrative multi year deal, weeks have gone by and he hasn’t found that opportunity yet, when you get almost a month into free agency, might have to recalibrate your expectations

  116. 116 scratcherk said at 2:24 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    My last Eagles related dream was that Doug was going for it on fourth down on a very sketchy call. I have issues.

  117. 117 Bert's Bells said at 3:17 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Yards to go? Was Johnson suspended? Agholor on the field?

    A lot of factors here for proper analysis.

  118. 118 Mike said at 2:28 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I feel the year off from GM duties was beneficial for Howie and allowed him to gain new perspectives and strategies for team-building. If we speculate on Howie’s thought process, I wonder if these short-term deals are a deliberate approach going forward, or merely a result of the team’s current hand regarding cap room, age of roster, etc.

  119. 119 Mike said at 6:54 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Would expiring one-year contracts factor into the comp pick calculations?

  120. 120 scratcherk said at 2:41 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Cant wait to see how many QBs go early. This draft is going to be super entertaining and it’s going to be very difficult to explain to my wife why.

  121. 121 A Roy said at 5:15 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    After 30 years, my wife requires no explanation. I can remember when the draft was all Mel Kiper, Jr. all the time.

    March 24 2016 it was announced that The Rams were doing HardKnocks. I think that was during the owners meeting. We should be finding out soon if the Eagles will be on hardknocks, after last years dissapointing ratings, you would think HBO is interested in Wentz and the Eagles and we can be forced to do the show

  127. 127 nickross23 said at 3:51 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Like McCaffery a lot, love his hands and his ability to line up in the slot. Love his vison and burst through the hole. Really like the fact that he played in a pro style offense at Stanford and was the focal point of their offense. Teams knew that they had to slowdown and stop no.5 and he still produced especially this past season with Kevin Hogan gone. The only problem I could see is his build. His slender frame from with waist down gives me some pause for him at 14. Would really hate to see the Eagles invest the 14 overall pick in a player who couldn’t hold up during the course of a 16 gm season.

  128. 128 nickross23 said at 3:56 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I was wondering about the report from a couple of weeks back about the Eagles being aggressive with the rb position, could they pull a Washington and pick a RB in rd 1 then another let’s say with that second pick in rd 4.. or 5. And then there’s the matter of Smallwood. Would having a McCaffery and a Smallwood in the same backfield be redundant in terms of size and skill set? Smallwood isn’t the same receiver that McCaffery is but I would think that the Eagles would be looking for a little more size and thumping ability.

  129. 129 D3FB said at 4:12 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    One is very good.

    The other is JAG.

  130. 130 Mac said at 4:30 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    If I apply this logic to the o-line situation, then the signing of aging veterans to short term deals should not preclude the ability to draft an enticing prospect.

  131. 131 D3FB said at 4:38 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Sure it doesn’t. But there are big issues elsewhere on the roster. There are 5 guys I think are better T’s than Vaitai. You would have to spend 14 or 43 to get them.

    You can take a day 3 guard but there are opportunity cost issues.

  132. 132 Mac said at 6:05 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I’m still pretending the Eagles will draft one of: Lamp, Elflein, Pocic.

  133. 133 nickross23 said at 4:33 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    McCaffery hasn’t carried the ball yet in the NFL so at this point it’s all projections and speculation at this point. I would say it’s also a bit too early to suggest that Smallwood is JAG after 77 carries too.

  134. 134 D3FB said at 4:37 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    You’re right he’s actually better than Adrian Peterson.

    Come on.

    He’s a dime a dozen guy. He’s a low end RB2 or more of a RB3/4. He’s got bad vision. He’s a 205lbs one cut RB.

  135. 135 Sean Stott said at 4:41 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I heard Smallwood reads this blog. He’s probably crying right now dude… harsh…

  136. 136 D3FB said at 4:43 PM on March 28th, 2017:


  137. 137 nickross23 said at 4:49 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    And McCaffery is 202 so who cares that Smallwood is 205, as far as the vision I’ve seen the some video breakdowns of this and its an accurate assessment, my thing is that I’m holding out hope that he can improve his abilities from his rookie year to year 2

  138. 138 Media Mike said at 7:33 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Yet still better than Barner!

    But I agree RB3 is Smallwood’s best long term role.

  139. 139 Howie Littlefinger said at 5:45 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I was thinking the same thing. I actually thought Smallwood was our best RB last year for what thats worth lol

    McCaffrey is fun to watch. One of those players where he only really has a couple of negative attributes, but you worry about them…. he is light and has small hands. Any chance he makes it to our 2nd pick?

    The Colts had arguably the worst CBs starting last season. Are we that desperate?

  145. 145 Sean Stott said at 4:36 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    we had the worst. if they were second worst, that means we just got twice as good at CB.

  146. 146 Insomniac said at 4:43 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    They were starting 6th stringers at some point. I’d say Mills and Carroll were 5th stringers.

  148. 148 ChoTime said at 9:19 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Best case scenario, these prove-it-deal guys outplay their contracts and we can’t afford them next year. That’s not really a great place to be in. I’ll wait and see how the draft works out before calling it a season, but I’m not optimistic at this point. Defense has the exact same holes as last year…

  174. 174 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 5:34 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I think they are here to prevent us from depending on rookies to start. I think Alshon gets signed to a deal before the season ends.

  175. 175 RC5000 said at 5:43 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    They weren’t going to solve everything in one free agency period. They got two starting WRs. I personally didn’t really think they’d do anything that significant in free agency. I didn’t expect to get Alshon or a top CB.

  176. 176 xmbk said at 6:03 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Shoot, I’m fine with that. A season of guys outplaying their contracts? Looks like there won’t be nearly the problem with cap space next year.

  185. 185 GermanEagle said at 6:54 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Is it Trump approved?

  186. 186 BobSmith77 said at 6:56 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    White House Sub Shop advertises this readily on their website

    “91% Fat Free U.S.D.A. Choice Lean Top Round Steak Cut Fresh Daily”

    That is a good cut of meat for a steak sandwich. No where on Pat’s or Gino’s websites do they advertise what kind of meat they do but I guarantee it is USDA Select (lowest grade of steak meat). Nor do I bet they use a decent supplier of USDA select.

    You need a quality roll and meat in order to even hope of making a decent cheesesteak. Pat’s and Gino’s use neither.

  187. 187 laeagle said at 7:01 PM on March 28th, 2017:

  191. 191 Rellihcs said at 6:45 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    The best cheesesteak joint is a myth. It’s down to preference, and honestly, a very strong argument can be made that cheesesteaks are among the lower end of quality food in Philly – even in the sandwich category.

    But most will tell you some version of:

    Good stuff, but still weak. I wish they would relocate and expand. Pretty much have to drive down there and make it part of your workday which is not that easy for most people…

  194. 194 Insomniac said at 6:57 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Yea it really can be a trip. They could expand, business has been good for them lately.

  195. 195 BobSmith77 said at 7:13 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Still is busy now even with the expanded hours. Ever since they won the Macnow contest in ’08 and got featured on several food shows for their roast park sandwich.

    Prefer a good roast park sandwich with some long hots and provolone over a cheesesteak.

  196. 196 laeagle said at 7:00 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Absolutely on Dalessandros

  197. 197 BobSmith77 said at 7:05 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    Yeah. If someone is from Bucks/NE Philly, they might go with Joe’s Steaks (formerly Chink’s).

    I agree Jim’s is vastly overrated. Highly inconsistent and no way worth the sometimes 15-20 minute wait.

    This was the list from Macnow’s final rankings of 45 cheesesteaks sampled between West Chester to Atlantic City. It is a bit dated at this point (2008) but the list was

    1. John’s Roast Pork, Philadelphia

    2. Steve’s Prince of Steaks, Philadelphia

    3. Chink’s Steaks, Northeast (now Joe’s Steaks)

    4. Talk of the Town, South Philadelphia

    5. Grey Lodge Pub, Northeast

    6. Slack’s Hoagie Shack, Northeast

    7. Sonny’s Famous Steaks, Old City

    8. Tony Luke’s, South Philadelphia

    9. White House Sub Shop, Atlantic City

    10. Dalessandro’s, Roxborough

    If we’re repping West Chester, America’s Pie has the best sandwiches hands down in the burbs, and their flank steak cheese steaks are out of this world.

    Hell yea Jons Roast Pork!!

  200. 200 Insomniac said at 6:46 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    If you only have time to go to one place, I’d say John’s roast pork. Don’t let the name fool you, they have one of the best cheesesteaks and roast pork sandwiches in the city.

    Depending on the location, Jim’s lines can get pretty long and can be hit or miss. Pat’s is ok. I personally don’t recommend Geno’s. There’s a lot of good places to get a good cheesesteak so it’ll come down to personal preference.

  201. 201 Media Mike said at 6:47 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I’d agree on skipping Geno’s.

    Please go to the Augustiner Keller. Best beer in the world. Hands down.

    My final thoughts on McCaffery: I’m pretty sure he would have been our best WR in 2016. Best RB isn’t even a question.

    Is signing Robinson a third-level type strategic move by Roseman to secretly boost the confidence of Agholor and DGB in practice & camp?

  227. 227 Dave said at 9:21 PM on March 28th, 2017:

    I just watched the Lurie press conference on Twitter. A few points:

    He very much disliked Chip.

    Howie set up Bradford’s contract so the team would have “equity” due to the 2nd year of the contract and upfront money.

    The Eagles wanted Carson and tried very hard to trade up to #1 overall to get him.

    They were 99.95% sure the Rams were taking Goff and that is why they traded to #2.

    Pederson, Reich, and Fip were all blown away by Carson and told Lurie before the Colts preseason game that Carson was ready mentally and physically.

    Joe Douglas set the draft board and the BPA will be taken because the team looks at that player as not being a big contributor until their 3rd or 4th year.

    I got the impression that they are set on surrounding Carson with talent as the Colts did with Peyton Manning. They see Carson as Peyton version 2.0.

    It’s a good watch, I highly recommend. The bottom line is that Lurie feels barring injury, Carson is the real deal.

    Well that won’t be a RB for sure. Their career is half over by then…
