I'm touched you actually care about America's Team. but I'll pass. I'll just say as it has been since the 70's," we are always on your mind" and standard of the NFC east. Thanks for pretending to care though.
Dude I'm not your stereotypical "f Dallas" eagles fan. I'll give them props when they are the better team.
And right now, they are. They had the best regular season in the NFC last year. And they far exceeded most people's expectations for Dak and Zeke's first year.
Dak wasn't even really talked about much before he started playing.
I remember him doing the Gruden QB camp and he seemed like a good dude though. He's far more likeable to an opposing fan base then Tony Romo IMO. For whatever that's worth
And Zeke does hit the hole harder than anyone else in football right now. You could argue LeVeon Bell is a better overall back but he also tap dances waiting for an opening. It's a different style than Zeke's but effective in some areas and less in others
I'm sure your O line doesn't hurt his output but I think he would be tearing it up for pretty much any team right now
He is looking like the rare exception to the "don't draft a RB in the first round" ideology that is becoming commonplace in the NFL now
And I'll be the first to admit I subscribe to it
I'm hoping Wendell Smallwood will be the Eagles starter next year and he was a 5th round pick.
I'm a bit worn out of Ryan Matthews tbh. I wouldn't mind seeing him gone either. He isn't strong or fast enough to make you forget about his poor ball security and running style that always feels like he's taking more steps than he has to just to get upfield and actually get yards.
He'll like seek out opposing defenders just to prove how durable he is or something IDK. He has like the mind of a power back but I don't think opposing defenses are overly threatened by Ryan Matthews. Hope he leaves.
Smallwood would be our best bet at RB going forward for now, I'd rather draft a CB in the first round with the Alshon and Torrey Smith signings
Or an OLB. I don't really want Kendricks back either
If we put a stud OLB with Jordan Hicks I think we would go from an average defense to a really good one
