    Sheil & Tim, I want to congradulate both of you for doing the most comprehensive/interesting/interactive reporting ever on the Philadelphia Eagles!!! I have watched and read about all Philadelphia sports teams for 50 plus years. You guys have been really outstanding!

    My official round one prediction….we trade back to the 11th pick with SD and draft either Star Lotulelei or Chance Warmack.

    Star

    Twitter or Facebook?! #%$@! Why?!

    • theycallmerob

      heard that.

  • borntosuffer

    Hard to argue too much. We have already seen what happens when 3 starters in the O-line go down.

  • theycallmerob

    goal line package…..”OT (#?= Johnson) subs in as an eligible receiver”

  • Sensei

    :(

    If we were going to go Oline, there were only 2 good choices…Lane Johnson, and Jonathon Cooper….Raiders FOCKED everything up, but we still came away with a kid with ALL PRO potential, so WE should be happy!…we didnt take one of these safe but limited kids…we swung for the fences and went with BIG TIME potential…Cant be mad at that! I dont think there was another defender worth it at #4…we would have had to trade back to take a defender

    • BrickSquadMonopoly

      haha u mad no dion

      • cliff henny

        i was little dissapointed. but it was johnson, cooper or tradedown.

        • GEagle

          I actually took it a lot better than I would have thought…..the only thing that would have really pissed me off, was to see Dion on the board and us pass on him…but with Chip as our coach, how mad could I really be?…….once Pugh and Long got drafted, then I was really really excited about Lane

      • GEagle

        I was aggrivated because I didn’t expect Miami to do that, and I wasn’t sure what we were gig to do with that pick..I liked guys like Ziggy,Mingo and the Tackles…BUT NOT AT#4…I Genuinly would have drafted Lane over both Joekel and Fisher, so I can’t say that I’m mad, They didn’t play it safe, they took one of the few top 10 picks with legit ALL WORLD POTENTIAL. I wanted to swing for the fences, and they did that….I also thought Pugh and Long would have made it to 35…Had I known that the only 2 Olineman to last to round 2 were Menelek and Terron, than I probably would have been more excited about Oline..

        cooper and Lane, IMO were the only two Lineman worry of a top 10 pick(in terms of upside), we got one, we improved ourselves in the trenches, which is something I swear by…so I can’t really be mad, you know?…can’t control what other teams do, all I can do is judge us on what we do with our picks, and it certainly was NOT a BAD pick…Dudes probably more athletic than Jason Peters…I mean. Philly should be excited

  • Max Lightfoot

    Sheil and Tim are the best – period! I now have great respect for Chip Kelly. He didn’t take the sexy, popular choice that fans so often want, but he made the right selection. This is exactly the kind of lineman we have needed for at least a decade. It all starts (or ends, quickly and violently) with the O-line. I am so happy with this pick! Go Eags!!

    No, you can’t have my number.

    Order my steaks rare.

    Now let’s get to work.”

  • xlGmanlx

    Not upset, the proof will be in the pudding. I think he gives you options in goal line as well, as a receiver big body type.

  • GEagle

    I think Kansas City and Jaxonville are going to regret last night…maybe not next year, but 3 years from now, they will be kicking themselves. I would sooo love to know had Fisher, Joekel, and Lane all been on the board, who we would have drafted
