Berry to the Browns

Posted: January 27th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 7 Comments »

Andrew Berry is no Frank Gore, but his tenure with the Eagles didn’t even last a full year. Berry got some big news on Monday.

Good for Berry. I think.

Cleveland has been a dysfunctional organization for a while now. Berry will be a first time GM and running a team with that kind of history can be quite challenging. On the other hand, the Browns are coming off a highly disappointing season and should be open to whatever ideas Berry has to offer.

Talent certainly isn’t the problem. They need a better team culture. Berry could certainly take some of what he saw in Philly and use those ideas in Cleveland.

We don’t know exactly what Berry did for the Eagles. They seemed to have him handling a variety of tasks. It will be interesting to see if they try to replace Berry or if they just saw him as someone special that they wanted as part of the organization.

The Eagles knew Berry wasn’t likely to stay long term. I’m sure they planned with the idea that he could be gone at any point in the offseason.

*****

The Eagles have their feature back in Miles Sanders.

Boston Scott can be a good role player, with his speed and burst.

Elijah Holyfield fascinates me. He is 5-10, 217. Could he replace Jordan Howard as the team’s power runner?

Doing that in college is one thing. Can Holyfield be a tough, physical runner in the NFL?

Good run.

Holyfield isn’t just physical. He has good vision and good feet.

It would be great to bring Howard back, but there are concerns. How much would he cost? Would Howard be happy as part of a RB trio? He was a workhorse for the Bears. This year he started off as the Eagles workhorse before giving way to Sanders.

If you feed the ball to Sanders and still want to get touches to the primary backup and Scott, there could be some games with minimal touches. Howard might prefer to go somewhere he could have more touches.

Holyfield is young, cheap and would embrace any role you gave him. There would be real logic to taking a chance on him.

The Eagles do need competition in the backfield. They could go for young RBs or add a veteran or two. And there still is the chance they bring Howard back. He was off to a very good start this year before his stinger injury.

    […] Beere zu den Braunen – Iggles BlitzEs wäre toll, Howard zurückzubringen, aber es gibt Bedenken. Wie viel würde er kosten? Würde Howard als Teil eines RB-Trios glücklich sein? Er war ein Arbeitstier für die Bären. Dieses Jahr begann er als das Arbeitstier der Eagles, bevor er nachgab Sanders. Wenn Sie den Ball zu füttern Sanders und immer noch an das primäre Backup herangehen wollen und Scott, könnte es einige Spiele mit minimalen Berührungen geben. Howard könnte es vorziehen, irgendwohin zu gehen, wo er mehr Berührungen haben könnte. Holyfield ist jung, billig und würde jede Rolle annehmen, die Sie ihm gegeben haben. Es wäre logisch, ein Risiko für ihn einzugehen. Die Eagles brauchen Konkurrenz im Backfield. Sie könnten für junge RBs gehen oder einen oder zwei Veteranen hinzufügen. Und es besteht immer noch die Möglichkeit, dass sie Howard zurückbringen. Vor seiner Stachelverletzung hatte er in diesem Jahr einen sehr guten Start hingelegt. […]

    […] Berry to the Browns – Iggles BlitzCe serait formidable de ramener Howard, mais il y a des préoccupations. Combien coûterait-il? Howard serait-il heureux dans le cadre d’un trio RB? Il était un cheval de bataille pour les ours. Cette année, il a commencé comme le cheval de bataille des Eagles avant de céder la place à Sanders. Si vous nourrissez le ballon Sanders et je veux toujours toucher la sauvegarde principale et Scott, il pourrait y avoir des jeux avec des touches minimales. Howard pourrait préférer aller quelque part où il pourrait avoir plus de contacts. Holyfield est jeune, bon marché et embrasserait n’importe quel rôle que vous lui avez donné. Il serait logique de tenter sa chance. Les Eagles ont besoin de compétition dans le champ arrière. Ils pourraient aller chercher de jeunes RBs ou ajouter un vétéran ou deux. Et il y a toujours la possibilité qu’ils ramènent Howard. Il a connu un très bon départ cette année avant sa blessure au dard. […]
