Jackson: ‘I Was Sitting There Waiting For a Reason Why’

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

When DeSean Jackson picked up the phone last Friday, Chip Kelly was on the other line telling him he was being released.

But according to Jackson, the Eagles’ head coach didn’t offer up any specific explanation.


"The conversation I had with Chip Kelly was a deep, personal conversation," Jackson said during an interview with Stephen A. Smith on ESPN. "But at the same time, when he called me, it was basically like, ‘We’re moving forward. I think it’s best for the team. I think it’s best for yourself.' I was sitting there waiting for a reason why, but that’s really all I can say from the conversation was: 'We’re moving forward and I think it’s best for us and I think it’s best for you so basically we’re going to let you go negotiate with 31 other teams.'

"The first time, once he told me, I sat there and was like… I want to hear what he’s gonna say, so waiting and waiting and waiting. And he came back with the same reason. It was more going in a new direction. And he felt it was best for me, best for him, so that’s kind of where we left it. I got off the phone, I was like, ‘You sure? That’s it?’ And we hung up. And that was it."

Four days before his release, Jackson got another call from Kelly, who was down at the owners meetings in Orlando. After that conversation, Jackson seemed to think everything was good with his head coach.

But obviously they weren't. According to a CBS Philly report, Jackson cussed Kelly out several times in front of the team and was generally insubordinate. But Jackson didn't think he and Kelly had any major issues.

"I think I had a good relationship with Chip Kelly," he said. "I think when he came into Philadelphia and did in one year, had some great success there. I felt everything went good last year. I had one of the best years of my career so there’s no negativity there. I’m not here to bad-mouth him or say anything to put dirt on his name. It’s once again a business that we play in."

Asked to compare Kelly to Andy Reid, Jackson said: "Andy Reid was a father figure in my life. He came in and stepped up and drafted me when I felt I slipped in the draft and gave me the opportunity to come to Philadelphia and put my talents on the field and on that level to go out there and do some great things. He embraced me like almost his son. He was familiar with where I was from. He was a California guy as well. And I kind of supported him with his situation too with his kids and things like that. So it kind of goes back and forth. But me and Andy Reid still to this day, throughout this whole process, he was a shoulder I leaned on through this and he helped me."

Smith read the following CBS Philly quote to Jackson.

"The fact is, [Jackson] was a ‘me-guy’ with an attitude problem and [Maclin] is the complete opposite, a team guy, a great character guy you go to war with,” said one source. “Funny how [Jackson] has this anti-bully thing and he thought he could push [Kelly] around; he found out otherwise. His being cut had nothing to do with the gang stuff. The team knew it. Everyone knew he had ‘ties.’ Those were his guys. That’s okay. What put him out was his selfishness. He can try and spin it all he wants how he’s ‘a team player.’ He’s not."

Smith attributed the quote to one of Jackson's former teammates, even though the article did not specify the source.

Asked to respond, Jackson said: "It’s an allegation once again. We’re dealing with someone who has an opinion. How much of that truth to the opinion is real? I don’t live my life going out there and really worrying what the other people say. I try to do things the right way. I try to go out there and be a professional when I’m doing it. Have I always been perfect? Have I always done things the right way? No. Have I learned and found out a better way of doing things? Yes. I think that goes throughout a career. Me coming into the NFL at 20-years-old, being very young, not knowing the right/wrong thing to do, I had to learn. I’m not perfect. No one is. But at the end of the day, I’m gonna learn how to do it the right way and I’m gonna do it the right way."

Jackson added that he's probably missed one meeting in his entire career.

"For sure I have been late," he said. "I’m not gonna lie about that. I’ve been late to meetings before. I missed one meeting probably out of my whole career. But at the end of the day, once again, we’re not perfect. Things happen.

"Since Day One, since I entered Philadelphia, since I stepped in that locker room first, I put it on the line for my teammates. I feel like I’m always a team guy. I never have not once been a team guy. Everything I do on the field is for my team. It’s not an individual goal that I go out there and catch these passes and score these touchdowns and at the end of the day I’m winning, it’s DeSean Jackson winning. It’s the Philadelphia Eagles that’s winning. So how I feel about that is I don’t think it’s real, I don’t think it’s right. So there you have it."

Much of the interview focused on the NJ.com story about Jackson's gang affiliation.

Asked if he felt the Eagles might have leaked that story, he said: "I would hope not."

Pushed to clarify, he said: "That’s a no."

As for his overall feelings when learning of the NJ.com report, Jackson revealed that he knew the article was coming before it was published.

"I actually got a chance to hear about it before it came out," he said. "A couple days before the story came out, I got a call from a guy that I have a great relationship with. And right after he got off the phone with me, then my agent called me as well too and said that’s what the Eagles reported, of some article that was coming out.

"About the article, how I feel about NJ.com, I think it was from my point of view very disrespectful. I don’t think it was right, straight up. The allegations and the things that were said within the article were things from a long time ago that I felt the club and the organization knew about previous years before that. So to sit there come 2014 and you hear all these crazy allegations and crazy stories that half wasn’t even true or whatever the case may be, I was just very disturbed and didn’t like that at all. It was one of them things like, ‘Here we go.’ "

Jackson spoke well of the connection he formed with fans in Philadelphia.

"I was definitely hurt," he said of being released.

"...I think the fans have embraced me like no other in Philadelphia. We all know about the Philadelphia fans. And there was just something about them that made me feel great every time I went out onto the field. All the things that I’ve done on the field, it just made me feel great about it. So to be released, it was a humbling experience at the same time, but it definitely hurt because I was at the peak of my career. I came off the best year of six years in the NFL so I can definitely say it hurt, but it’s a business. It’s the NFL."

  • Adam G

    Just like Billy Hoyle would say, Desean would “rather look good and lose than look bad and win.”

    • anon

      Was he terrible on the sidelines this year? The Minny game sticks out but we were losing. I’m Just asking, am probably seeing with rose colored glasses.

      • borntosuffer

        No, I don’t think it was any more obvious than that. I mean, if you blow up like that on occasion then make you apologies, indicate you were out of line, and show appropriate respect, the stuff that we saw DeSean do was nothing fatal. I am guessing it didn’t play out that way.

      • BleedGreenJames

        He was petulant in the loss to Dallas, while Foles is out there struggling he is just throwing his hands up and pouting every time he didn’t get the ball. Did the same thing in the loss to NYG. When Barkley got put in Vick and DeSean were just over on the bench pouting together. Instead of trying to encourage the guys filling in for his best friend (Vick), he continues his typical front running, if-things-aren’t-going-my-way-I-quit behavior.

  • Gil

    Lousy interview for Jackson, he basically admitted he hangs with gang members (but not when they doing negative things) and says he was late for meetings and hung out with other problem people, but said that was years ago.
    DeSean said he went to the jail and picked up the gang member when he was released from prison.
    He also said Kelly told him three days BEFORE the nj.com article that he was going to be released. Yet the next day DeSean told everyone that Kelly said everything is fine and he will play for Eagles this season….Huh?

    • Kev_H

      Your timeline is mixed up Kelly didn’t tell him he was released until he was already released.

  • Ale (Brazil)

    Let’s move on from this, shall we?

    The Philadelphia Eagles are bigger than DeSean Jackson.

    • BleedGreenJames

      Amen

    • bsn

      Any normal sized man is bigger than Desean Jackson.

  • Hiral(GM)

    I have to be honest I just re watched the Playoff game saints vs eagles, and honestly I hate to admit but I think we will be fine. I really believe it’s chips scheme that makes this ship float. I’m glad to be an eagle fan and I wish DeSean the best. Just get some Dfense chip and we can move on from this. I will be watching how long it takes foles to get rid of the ball this year. Also how many balls maclin catches this year. I’m going to trust in chip… Good luck DeSean

    I’m so sick of Reuben Frank running his fat mouth, his writing sucks and maybe he said go to Washington along with the punk.

    “….I feel like I’m always a team guy. I never have not once been a team guy….” Except when there’s a contract at stake…

  • Adam

    Is this all we’re going to see on this site about that CBS Philly article? It’s actually a pretty big deal IMO.

  • Brian

    I love commas and double negatives. “I never have, not once, been a team guy.”

    Finally, he tells the truth.

  • Rick H

    This so old!!! I “personally” feel Jackson is not very intelligent plus just listening to him (the words that come out of his mouth) are just so disingenuous. He seems to even lie to himself in attempt to avoid blame and his lack of accountability.
    Let’s talk draft Tim & Sheil in all future articles.

    • Adam

      A mock draft would actually be a nice change of pace. never thought I’d hear myself say that before… but here we are.

      • cliff henny

        want my all WR mock draft? Howie said it could be case receiver is bpa every round

        • oreofestar

          trade up….

        • borntosuffer

          That’s f’in awesome.

  • cliff henny

    man, if i’m Washington and listening to Jax, the real scary part is I think he thinks he telling the truth. no nfl team just tosses aside 1350/9 without a real good reason. hope jax handled the not being teamplayer/attitude and questionable ties heck of alot better w/’skins management than he did w/ SAS. he just seemed like a greedy lying liitte dickbag to me.

    • Will

      Well it’s Dan Synder… Likely to go down an another not so great decision of his.

    • GEAGLE

      Yup

  • Brazilnut

    Funny how he doesn’t actually deny any of the allegations in the quote. Instead of saying “I didn’t do those things” he goes with a vague “How much can you trust allegations?”.

    • Kev_H

      “half wasn’t even true, or whatever the case may be.” That’s like Jerry Sandusky saying the stories didn’t get all the details right.

      • GEAGLE

        What’s funny is he tries to act like it’s ok to hang out and take pictures with anyone he wants….rich white dudes won’t take to kindly to a key player In their company taking pictures wit murder suspects….people act Iike that’s no big deal, and he should be allowed to hang with whoever he wants, but life doesn’t work that way….I bet if McManus yesterday would have tweeted pics of him with his arm around Jerry Sandusky, he probably wouldn’t have a job working for philly Mag today( sorry McManus for using you and that creep in an example, I meant no harm

        • anon

          Cmon. Politicians played with gangsters all the time. Everyone knows ballers want to be rappers.

          it’s not like hes a kid from the burbs these are the people he knew growing up. For a guy with no record and clearly no father figure now there’s a lot of dirt being thrown on his name about that stuff.

          Desean had professionalism issues obviously. He’s immature for certain. He owned up to it as much as anyone will. I think with someone he relates to taking him under their wing he can fix some of that stuff but those guys are gone from the eagles. And so he’s gone. It is what it is but I don’t get why everyone has to go with all the ad hominem attacks – guy made a lot of highlights for the team. Helped win a lot of games.

  • Scott J

    As long as he’s in Washington now, I hope he never learns and never changes.

  • Tom w

    How bout cause your cursed off your head coach in front of the team on multiple occasions, blew up in the sidelines at the wr coach, wouldn’t speak to your wr coach, and were generally disliked by your entire team ….. Give me a freaking break. So happy this clown is gone after I heard this shit. Team will be here forever. He won’t. Waiting for apologies for those crying about why eagles did what they did

    Gives a little insight into the locker room and views of Djax

  • djack10

    this locker room will be incredibly different this year. no vick. no desean. no avant. maclin back. it feels a lot more like a crew that is all business. mccoy seems like one of the bigger punks on the team now, despite his amazing skills.

    • anon

      Avant was a straight leader, Vick too. Avant was the one that got cooper dj2 and ertz working the juggs machine everyday after practice.

      Djax is different and frankly on the same level to me as McCoy in terms of no leaadership and off the field stuff I think djax getting cut sends a message to everyone else.

      I can tell you we aren’t drafting anyone that needs a mentor or vet leadership. Everyone is going to be a blue chip guy for another year or two. I think it’s good even if it means we pass on guys like honey badger. looking back at the last couple of years our lockerroom has been mess.

      • Kev_H

        To me, at the core, there are players who want to carry their teams and players who understand what it takes to win as a team. The guys who see their role as carrying the team hold it back. During his brief hot streak as an Eagle, teammates reported that Vick would say things like “I’m taking us to the end zone. Who’s with me?” which fired everyone up and is a kind of leadership, but when you are competing with the best, it sets the team back. On paper, the skill guys the Eagles had from 2010-2012 were good enough to be the dream team and dynasty they called themselves. But too many guys saw their roles as putting up individual numbers and carrying their teammates. Having to learn about or even care about other positions must have been completely foreign to Jackson because it doesn’t do anything directly for his numbers. Likewise Vick felt winning the day and competing in practice made it harder for him to prepare for games, not realizing that a team can’t effectively prepare unless its parts are all there and all in every day. The way Vick prepares himself for a successful Vick show conflicts with how a team prepares to win. Interpersonally, Vick is clearly great. But I don’t think he ever grasped how a team needs to prepare.

      • Mr. Magee

        That locker room was a direct reflection on Andy… Wow, did he ever lose his way, in so many ways.

      • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

        I cannot disagree more about Shady. The bus incident does not put him anywhere near djax.

        You’re too focused on off-the-field stuff. Shady may not be a terrific man, but he seemed to buy in waaaay more than djax.
        And talent wise, they’re not even comparable.

        He’ll be just fine

  • Kev_H

    I never really got why the NJ.com story was such a big deal. TMZ was reporting the same things for weeks/months. If Stephen A. addressed the real issues, he could have turned it into a modern ‘talkin practice’ viral sensation.

  • Jerry Pomroy

    My wife grew up a Skins fan & so is her whole father’s side of the family. She cheers for the Eagles now but still keeps loose ties to the Skins. So anyway I just said to her, “We got Thrash & Mitchell. You got McNabb on last leg & DeSean. I think we won.” She agreed… :-)

    • oreofestar

      Thrash was a beat so….they could have gotten Calvin and it wouldn’t have mattered

      • Jerry Pomroy

        I’m tempted to torture my brother in laws.

  • GEAGLE

    Ok, I’m convinced the eagles are going to try and draft Cal’s Deandre Coleman. Hopefully we are able to snatch up, because I know Chip,Howie,Azz and gamble will want this kid. Most teams that will consider him, probably do so at 5technique, but we are going to try and draft this kid to backup Logan at NT, I’m convinced of it….

    Played in the PAC 12
    Known as tough, durable, play thru injuries
    6’5, 315lbs, 34.5 long arms, 10.25 Hands, Broad shoulders to add weight
    Strong Anchor against double teams
    Clogs up lanes
    Plays tough and hard
    versatile, experienced playing every position on a 3man line
    …,
    Needs to improve how he uses his hands, and needs to improve his pass rush. Like I said, most teams will use him as their two gap 5tec, but he will be a NT for us..

    This kid is listed anywhere from round 3 to round 6…..I think the eagles will try and get him in the 4th or 5th….as 5 tec, there are some sexier prospects who can provide a better pass rush…at NT, there are some much Bigger prospects like McCullers…but our scheme doesn’t use the typical 340lb NT….this kid is perfect to backup Logan…
    ….
    Now someone told me to look at Shamar Stephen, and I watched 4 games so far and read up on him..”underachiever traits” “disappears for stretches”….Now this kid is 4-3/3-4 versatile so he would appeal to our Multi front defense, the problem is I think he would appeal to us as a 5tec, and I’m not sure if he can play NT for us.

    Like Coleman he is 6’5, Coleman weighs 316lbs, Shamar weighs 309lbs..both are undersized as TRADITIONAL NTs, but our scheme doesn’t call for a traditional, NT..
    Tho they are similar in size, Shamar doesn’t have the freakishly long arms that help Logan be successful while lacking traditional size. Coleman has those Bennie Logan. Freakishly long arms, Shamar doesn’t…Shamar also doesn’t have the ridiculuosly strong legs and core which makes Coleman able to anchor against two defenders…Shamar has good Charecter and is team captain, but he plays lethargic, disappears, underachievs…while Coleman plays tough as all hell….

    although they are similar on paper, in our scheme, Coleman would play NT, while also backing up Thornton in emergency situations…but Shamar would have to be our backup 5tec, and I doubt he can back up our NT

    People need to start watching this Coleman kid…I really have a strong feeling we are going to try and get this kid!!

    • oreofestar

      I am sorry wasn’t paying attention, I was looking at Evan’s tape :P

      • GEAGLE

        Huh? Evan who?

        • oreofestar

          *Evans’ you know Calvin Johnson III

          • GEAGLE

            Oh, I literally haven’t spent a single moment watching him
            Him. As in I haven’t seen him catch a single pass…I try to pretend he doesn’t exist…no point in me going crazy, drooling over a kid we have no shot at….
            .
            Then again this time last year, I refused to talk to anyone about Zack Ertz…I loved him as a prospect and I though there was absolutely NO SHOT of falling out of round 1, so I refused to talk about him, and I tried to pretend he didn’t even exist….then by some heavenly miracle he fell out of round 1 and became an eagle

            So half of me pretends Evans doesn’t exist because I don’t want to be heartbroken when he isn’t an eagle….the other half of me is being superstitious, in that if I don’t watch any film on him or ever talk about drafting him the way I did with Ertz, maybe we get lucky again and he falls into our laps like Ertz did…

    So where are all the staunch DeSean sympathizers now? His own teammates are more than happy to see him gone. Maybe they should take value in the words of those that actually know that he was in fact an ass.

      • GEAGLE

        Who says the closed the book on him? Wasn’t it closed yesterday? Yet they till managed 5 new Desean posts today smh

    • RIP illa

      Since I’m/I’ll be lumped into that category…I’m still here and not going anywhere. Sorry I had a busy day yesterday and couldn’t get on. Hope that’s alright with you! I couldn’t care less, if his teammates liked him, or if he was a loner, or a diva. This we already knew! As long as he came in and worked hard, played hard (vast majority of the time), and put up production that helped this team. If he was cussing out Kelly at all and especially in front of the team, then yeah…his ass had to go. Can’t do that shit, just like you can’t keep bringing negativity, from your outside life, into work. However, while not completely dismissing the CBS philly report, I’m not gonna take it as gospel either. Too many holes can be poked and seems a little shaky and also the timing, but hey whatevs. He’s already been gone!!!

      And for the people commenting on the way he dressed during the interview…you guys are being ridiculous. Heaven forbid he’s in anything other than “thuggish” attire!!! Glasses were a bit much, but I’ve been saying that about anybody that puts them on, for the sole reasons of fashion, since that trend started like 3-4 years ago! Plus, a lot of athletes and people in General started to dress that way along ago. Including DJax, who particularly started to dress like that after he got his contract from the Eagles in 2012.

      So I’m still at the same spot that I always have been. The team will move on and I except them to do just fine without him (offensively). Still think that we could have had something really great with him added to what we have and are getting in the draft. And I still think that no one is innocent and all parties are to blame. Some more than others.

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Yes, but RIP you are the exception and actually not in that category. I’m talking about those that jump to DJax defense, just to be defensive. Those that turn a blind eye to his own actions merely because they have such an overwhelming personal connection to the player. Those that think he can do no wrong or feel that the Eagles should just grin and bare it, because he is so supremely talented and without flaws. You are at least a realist and although you obviously have a link to DJax, can accept that he’s not without blame and can be somewhat level headed about it.

        I’m talking about the same type of individuals that stomped their feet and said that Vick should start when he returned from injury last season even though Foles was on a tear, the team was winning & Vick himself said that Nick should remain the starter. They only lived in the moments to see Vick being heralded and return as starter just for the sake of being the starter, not looking at the team succeeding. You are not in that category my friend.

    What trading back first pick might look like…

    Round 2 Pick 11 (NYG): Xavier Su’a-Filo, OG, UCLA (A)

    Round 4 Pick 22: Craig Loston, SS, LSU (A)
    Round 5 Pick 22: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana (B)
    Round 7 Pick 22: Cairo Santos, K, Tulane (B)

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Are you drafting Shazier for ROLB? I don’t like him, not even a little bit, as an OLB in a 3-4. 4-3 SAM/WILL, 4-3U SAM he will be an absolute BEAST. He could probably also be a really good WILL ILB in 3-4. But he is just too small to be a point of attack OLB going up against NFL LTs. Don’t get me wrong, I love him as a player. Just not for us at OLB.

      • Will

        no just went BPA…

      I am sorry I do not like the whole giving up a future 2nd thing, trading d own 17 spots in 3rd will not get you an extra 5 and 6 and some of the spots those players were picked at are generous

      • GEAGLE

        Dude, trading down in the 3rd isn’t getting you much more than that
        ….
        And you don’t have to like trading away our future pick, hopefully the eagles like it :)
        ..
        Who doesn’t belong in what round?

        • oreofestar

          I actually thought we would get less for trading down in the 3rd…

          I hope they don’t like it too :P

          And I just think some player like Marcus, Exum, Taylor would go a little higher

          • GEAGLE

            Less? You are trading 20 spots, from one round to the next…at the very least you will get a 5th for that…..maybe you don’t get the 6th also…but you can always do something like included your 7th, so they throw in a 6th

          • oreofestar

            Oh to be honest if trading down 15-20 spots nets us an extra 5 and 7 I am still all for it

          • oreofestar

            and I actually love the trading out of 86 thing I have suggested it but to get that 5 and 6 I want we will have to trade into around 115-125

          • GEAGLE

            Taylor hart is also really tough to figure out. Think he is talented enough to go as high as round 3, but this draft is stacked, and since he has been hurt and is missing the entire draft process, I can see him falling down the board…don’t know what’s realistic for him..think round 3 is out of the question for Hart and Exum. Possibly 4th, but I think he ends up as a 5th…I guess

          • oreofestar

            I am hearing mid 4th – early 5th for him, but I don’t really know

          • GEAGLE

            Marcus also gets talked about in early round 4, round 3…..I rarely see him in round 2, I just usually mock him in round 2….but that’s how the game went, so I drafted them….

          • oreofestar

            AAAH well if I take Cooks or Evans (I refuse to leave his name out) OR ODB round 1 and Smith is there at 54 I freaking take him

          • GEAGLE

            Yeah but in first pick you don’t have to take Marcus 54…he always lasts til 3rd

          • oreofestar

            I know first pick but it is flawed :P I did not even know that you were just playing first pick then I would no have said anything I thought that was just your mock

          • GEAGLE

            Oh no….I was doing the game….I just try to make the moves fit real life scenario….
            ….
            Like in the game, I accepted a trade down for 22 that got me 40 and two 3rd round picks…that would never happen in real life, but I accepted it, because it’s the same think As trading down From 22 to 40 getting an Extra 3rd, AND trading next years 2′for an extra 3rd….
            ..
            The game doesn’t let me trade nxt years 2nd round, so I had to accept a trade for two 3rd rounders, and I just pretend I traded next years two for the second 3rd

          • oreofestar

            ok….I guess my thing is simple I have no problem with our first 2 picks I believe the way the OLB and WR class are, barring the worst of the worst happening with Steelers and Jets taking ODB and COOKS and leaving Benjamin and Lee, I think we can get a good player at both spots not even incldiing the inevitable Shariff Floyd who I hope is Barr, my problem is we do not have enough of those mid picks in that 3-5 range and that is where I want to trade down and do damage I am fine with 22 and 54

          • GEAGLE

            Btw, typically I’m against trading away future pics…but there is always a special circumstance.
            ….
            One of the deepest drafts we will ever see, and we have less pick then we had in years?.. We also need to take advantage of our coach knowing these prospects all the way back to their highschool days…Chip won’t always have this advantage, need to strike while the iron is hot….
            ..
            And even if you trade away 2015picks, as long as you don’t trade away your first rounder, you can always use that first rounder next year to trade back and try and recoup the pick we traded away

          • GEAGLE

            Exum Is pretty much impossible to figure out what round he comes off in…someone could believe in him enough to get back to his junior level and take him In the 3rd or could fall to 5th…impossible to figure him out

          • oreofestar

            I would say our 4th like 122

    • Andy124

      A-Rob!!!

      • GEAGLE

        Think he will be seriously considered by Chip…..he has the size/speed that our HC defines as ELITE potential…one of the better projects at beating press man coverage, which we know is important to our coach….and the kid is literally as good as it gets when it comes to coming down with Jump Balls….he reminds me a lot of Anquan BOldin, only he is taller and bigger than BOldin.l.people don’t realize that Anquan is only like 6ft tall…he just plays really big….
        ..
        Think A Rob and Coop on the outside, blocking the hell out of DB, and going up and coming down with jump balls!!, I like, I like

        • oreofestar

          A-ROB, Benjamin, Moncrief, Adams, Seferian-Jenkins AND MATTHEWS!!! no way all are gone at 54

          • Andy124

            Good case for drafting OLB in round 1.

          • oreofestar

            exactly now if hey like Cooks or ODB alot then sure I have no problem but look if Ealy is there I think you take him he is Aldon Smith 2.0 I love him

          • Andy124

            I totally confess, I want 6’2″+ plus at WR. I deserve any criticism I get, but there it is. I’m owning it. I know the board is having a love-fest with ODB. I’d rather trade back and get more picks and take A-Rob, Moncrief, Matthews, Bryant etc.

            Many question if Ealy is suited to play OLB in the 3-4, thinking he is a pure 4-3 DE. At this point, I trust the Eagles to make the right call on that.

          • oreofestar

            I think he can play 3-4 OLB but yeah it is the Eagles’s call but I like him WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more than Ford, maybe if Barr really slides like Floyd and he is in that 13-17 range they give a future pick

          • GEAGLE

            I actually totally agree with you….I love ODB, but I want what our Offensive genius defines as elite ceiling, WR with size and speed…want our WRs to he ATleast 6’2, no lighter than 210lbs..no slower than 4.55….there are so many quality big boy WR with serious potential, I don’t see why we have to settle for smaller WR especially in the early rounds…..if we are going to add a small, burner I would prefer it being in the later rounds…I would be ok making an exception for Dirt mcGirt
            ….
            And I’m finding it hard to project Kony to OLB. Seems like a DE to me. And there is a good chance he is picked in top 20
            ..
            I’m starting to get a feeling that Dee Ford is a Fraud, but even if he is legit, I’m not so sure he would appeal to us…He could work as a rookie, replacing Cole as our Nickle pass rusher(tho I worry about him against left tackles) since we have an elite run defender like Cole to man our base defense….but we will all want Coles contract gone at the end of the season..if we are going to get that albatross of a contract off our books, then the kid we draft this year has to be Ready to be a 3 down OLB by the beginning of the 2015 season…and I think there are a handful of ROLB prospects who will be ready to become 3 down players sooner than Ford. 8

          • GEAGLE

            I suspect that Ford won’t ready to play all 3′downs til his 3rd season…guys like Marcus Smith. Attaboy, Murphy and Demarcus Lawrence have a better chance than Ford to be ready to take over for Cole in 2015….Chip always talks bout the importance of setting the edge and playing the run…and I think Marcus and Attaboy are way ahead of
            Ford in that regard and I view them as similar pass rushes…so I would much rather draft Marcus,attaboy,Demarcus instead of Ford….I’d rather draft Kony instead of Ford, and I’m not even sure Kony can play OLB

          • GEAGLE

            There are none…Dee Ford won’t appeal to the Eagles…there are no OLBs to draft…..best bet is to trade out of round 1, or settle for a WR,TE or DL…..

        • Andy124

          His 40 time may not have been great, but he plays faster than that. He runs precise routes and has two years of NFL level coaching under his belt. Makes all the tough catches, occasionally drops an easy one, but enough to be of concern. And he’s a Penn Stater!

          • GEAGLE

            Sounds about right!!!….

            We are drafting two WR, or should I say pass catchers(because I believe Sefarian Jenkins will be in play)
            ..
            If we are going to take a Raw Super Talent, who will probably have a quiet rookie season, and then show up like a Monster Alshon Jeffries in year two. Donte Moncrief,Devante KB comes to mind….then the other pass catcher we add will need to be polished and NFL ready…so it would be someone like Sevarian Jenkins. Jordan Mathews, A Rob, ODB is the only one who lacks elite size that’s good enough to draft IMO

    • cliff henny

      not bad, but way too defensive loaded. 11 picks and think Kelly’s taking 3 O guys, not a chance. toss a safety out, dowling, insert DAT and either urban or hart, one needs to be oline.
      .
      I would love the volume though. need to trade with SF

    • anon

      I don’t think Lyerla has a chance of being on this team.

      • oreofestar

        I agree but fun to mock him though :)

  • oreofestar

    1. Kony Ealy
    2.Jordan Matthews
    3. Trade down about 30 spots get extra 5 and 6
    4. Antone Exum
    4..Dontae Johnson
    5.Bruce Ellington
    5.Deandre Coleman
    6.Colt Lyerla
    7. Trey Hopkins

    BOOM!

    • oreofestar

      2 WRS, 1 TE, 1 OG, 2 CB/S, 1 OLB,1 DT/DE

    • cliff henny

      hate bruce ellington. Landry w/ 4.7 40 falls to 4th and DJ will be there in 5th, then BOOM!

      • oreofestar

        OH…. :P

      • oreofestar

        I like you Cliff so the mock shall be changed just for you

        • anon

          This is pretty good mainly b/c it gets my two fav players (Ealy and Landry). I could do without drops McGee though.

  • mark hoban

    I just watched the espn video interview.

    I’m just curious…to all the devoted eagles fans out there who follow the team just as must in the offseason as they do during the season…

    Have any of you ever seen 10 wear:

    A collared shirt?
    A tie?
    A vest?
    Glasses?

    Maybe I’m being vindictive, but that video smells funny…

    • oreofestar

      simple he wants to clean up his image after the reports nothing wrong…

      • mark hoban

        Yea…I know. Just doesn’t seem real.

        • oreofestar

          I mean it is fine with me, seemed like he was trying a little too hard but I like Desean too much to say much

          • mark hoban

            I hear ya. I feel the same way.

            It scares me because I guess I was hoping he wasn’t actually humbled by this. Starting to think he’s not going to be a problem for Washington in the locker room.

          • oreofestar

            Oh it will be a problem but Desean is not stupid enough to act Desean like in a TV interview shortly after all of this

          • PhillySean

            That’s what I think too. You don’t change your world view and approach to life over night.

          • anon

            I hope it’s a wake up call for him. I hope Eagles aren’t getting the post-Eagles Chris Carter. Honestly, the on the field brovado and show boating was loved by this philly fan, i thought it was great when TO did it. Some call it bad sportsmanship, but I say if you’re going to be a sore loser, don’t lose. I especially LOVE sticking to the other teams in the division. I feel like it enhances the rivalry.

          • RIP illa

            Agreed about the on field stuff. Was down with most TO stuff, except for him standing on the star. Although it was against the cowboys, there’s still lines that need to be drawn and shouldn’t be crossed.

            DJax needs to learn that he can’t be a jackass at work. Plain and simple. You can’t act like Kanye West, when you ain’t making Kanye money and are still an employee. I still don’t think he was a cancer, but if more and more reports start to surface, from credible reporters, like the CBSP one…then he obviously was. And he needs to wake up and stop that shit too. He’s just gotta keep his down and handle business. Well maybe a little more than that, Cuz now if there’s reports I him being a loner in WAS even if he’s not being a cancer, that will reflect negatively on him also. So now he’s gonna have to play the game to a certain extent. Like that one journalist wrote an article about how it should be easy for him to prove the Eagles and doubters wrong, just by acting like a well adjusted individual. Anyway, wish him luck as a man, and really hope we shut him down come future Sundays!

          • mark hoban

            I’m watching it as we speak. The philly fans part gave me chills.

      These are so ridiculous I can’t even look at them anymore.

      • oreofestar

        but they are fun :P

        • Joe L

          Just sets me up for disappointment though.

          • oreofestar

            Nah it is just fun really sometimes Barr falls to 22, it is fun to dream

          • Joe L

            Barr stock has been sinking, so that wouldn’t shock me if it happened in real life.

          • oreofestar

            yeah on PTD yesterday Jeremiah said some scouts told him they were really down on Barr and apparently a slide is not out of the question, I really hope so if we can get him at 22, Jesus Christ the draft is already a success

          • Joe L

            He’s got chicken legs, so he struggles to generate any power when he engages lineman. You can only win so many times with pure speed. Is he pretty awesome for a guy with only two years of experience playing D? For sure. But that doesn’t mean a lot if he can’t produce consistently at the next level.

          • oreofestar

            the fact that he is so raw and has little experience means h has even more upsde and potential and his ceiling is ridiculous, he has bus potential but he is better than Dion coming out and his ceiling is dangerous like 15 sacks a year dangerous

          • Joe L

            I agree. I just think it’s going to take longer than a lot of people are willing to wait.

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      double the # of picks? I can’t take any of these serious

    • oreofestar

      I remember fighting with someone that the Saints would love Dee and not Ealy so he can slip, also tried to convince them Rams are not taking Evans and that they would take Gilbert but NOOOOO also Nix fell…hard

    • RIP illa

      Nice. Think more WRs will go earlier in the 2nd so I doubt Matthews will be there. That and I’m basing it off of if I like a player, the Eagles will not draft him :-) From the end of the college season till now, most of the names haven’t changed for me. Meaning the guys I like and have been talking about the most. It’s just that they are now, and have been, shooting up the boards. Matthews is one of those players.

      • oreofestar

        yeah I agree I thought Matthews would be gone so I was thinking Moncrief but then there was a Tackle run

    Just been trading back to get a feel for what it might look like not so sure how realistic this is….weird my first 2 picks match the mock below…lol..

    • Tom w

      The trades on that site are horribly overcompensating and way way way off the nfl trade chart. I emailed the website asking them to get the trades more in line w. The trade chart. Otherwise I don’t do any trades except the worst one in the fifth to get a sixth back. Otherwise the software is good except tons of guys won’t last as long but I guess that is the luck if drafts.

      • GEAGLE

        You can always give compensation back trading up,,,trick is to give enough compensation back, trading up and try to even it out so that it was realistic

  • Ascher Levy

    It’s sad that at his age, he has no insight into why he was let go. He was a team cancer and diva. Let’s hope his addition to Washington is a subtraction for their team.

    “Honestly, I feel very confident that my agent will work something out,” Jackson said. “I feel like I have a great agent, that’s what he’s for, that’s what his job is, all I have to really worry about is staying out of trouble and keeping my nose clean and doing the things I need to do, working on my craft and playing football.” from Franks on CSNphilly.com, 1/6/2014

      that’s hilarious. up vote for the outrageousness.

      • cliff henny

        makes perfect sense to me.

  • PaoliBulldog

    Funny how so many players praise Kelly in particular for his communication skills, and yet DJax professes to have no clue why the Eagles dumped him.

    • Will

      Didn’t refute anything so best to play dumb…

      • PaoliBulldog

        If Kelly *had* articulated the team’s reasons, I doubt DJax would have wanted to share them with the rest of us.

    • 76mustang

      Because DJaccx has ZERO listening skills…

  • ODBorBustAllDay

    I’m sure you’ve seen by now that Tampa traded Mike Williams to the bills for a 6th. If they’re was Any doubt about them going wr at pick 7, it’s gone now. Mike Evans fans, sorry. They’ll have Josh McCown set up with 2 big targets just like he had in Chicago. Tampa’ s done a nice job this off season.

    • Will

      yup…Lovie Smith is no dummy…likes his defense so we might make out..doesn’t look good for us…

      • ODBorBustAllDay

        Even if you’re scenario played out and we got the 11th, those wrs would have to run the gauntlet to make it to 11. St Lou, Tampa, Minn, Buff, Tenn@11, and I wouldn’t count out ATL between Roddy’s age and losing Gonzo-who wouldn’t want a Julio&Sammy combo? Or a Julio&Evans combo, even tho they should go Def.

        • Will

          ATL needs OL men…

      • ODBorBustAllDay

        They’ve got shit for weapon’s after Vjack. The young TE, Tim somebody, was ok. Ebrons not a top 10 talent. Not over guys like Evans&Barr. I think wrs a must after they dump Williams tho. There’s ZERO chance they’re taking a QB with McCown, and Glennon, who honestly played well enough to compete for the job last season; 19to9 just under 60% completion as a rookie. They dumped a good amount into the defense in FA, if one of those wrs is there they’re taking him.

        • ODBorBustAllDay

          Tim Wright, and they signed Brandon Myers. No chance they go TE that early either.

    • GEAGLE

      Defense is always in play for a Lovie coached team…I’m sure Ebron will be considered….not to mention, they could take a QB…
      ,,,
      Stevie Johnson counts 8.5 against the Bills cap and they added Mike Williams to Rob woods and Goodwin,

      Ravens re signed mount Cody. There are officially no DL left to sign…Eagles are going to find a way to add Deandre Coleman in the draft. He has to backup Bennie Logan. Ravens signed TE Owen Daniels for cheap..,Daniels and Pitta forms a decent tandem…

      Blazing WR Jacoby Ford signed with the Jets…anyone see the money he signed for?

      OLB Rob Jaccson re signed with foreskins….there are no veteran stop gap OLB left to sign…

  • Will

    I wonder if eagles have any interst in Chris Johnson …CK 2000 and McCoy…

    There you have it. He basically admitted there was no wrong doing on philly’s behalf and that he was a “less than perfect” teammate. I wouldn’t be surprised if the quote came from Carry Williams. He’s doesn’t take bleep from anyone and was raised on one of the tightest teams in Baltimore. But maybe it also came from someone who played with Maclin before.

    So, I haven’t been watching film on any of these prospects. Just seemed like useful film was a too good to be true thing, so I never bothered looking for myself. Boy was I wrong. Just watched Barr against USC. Had 2 sacks but did not look like a first round pick. Not stupid enough to base an opinion off of one game fortunately.

    One sack was 1 on 1 against a TE. The other was a legit spin move back inside against the tackle. He got stoned most of the game though. Not just not getting sacks, but not getting pressure. Stoned as Cheech. Didn’t look like a liability in the run game or coverage though. Got a little out of position in the run game at times, but wasn’t getting blown off the ball or anything.

    Can’t wait to watch more. My eyes have been opened. Hopefully I can find time to check out At-At too.

    • GEAGLE

      Welcome to the film geek club…
      ..
      What film are you watching? For example, say you want to watch Anthony Barr…are you watching UCLA vs. USC? Or are you watching Anthony Barr vs. USC?

      • Andy124

        The latter. Google lead me to draft breakdown.com

        • Andy124

          Shocked that it’s free.

          • GEAGLE

            Oh ok,..I don’t even know what that site is, I’ll check it out….yeah most of the Time I’m watching Player vs, Team film….every once in a while I go back and watch ntire games if the two teams featured a bunch of prospects I liked

  • GEAGLE

    Just tried to play the draft game as realistic as I could, sticking to BPA with an eye on our needs, and chips desires at each position. I didn’t do any trades so I just had the 6 picks to work with. I think Chips draft picks will be versatile, BIG for their position, length, top athletes…Really exiting Chip to add some serious size to our team with this draft..

    1. #22) Kony Ealy ROLB 6’4, 275lbs, 34.25 arms…Top combine score in the 3 cone(which is pretty damn important for pass rushers, Big. Long. Aldon Smith type
    ..
    2) Austin Sefarian Jenkins TE 6’5, 265lbs 33.75 arms. Round two TEs in back to back years? When they are this talented. You almost have to. Jenkins is one of the most well rounded. He can do a lot of what Ertz does in the passing game, but he is also that bruising, Tough SOB Celek type in line blocker…pairing him with Ertz and you will have the two headed Patriots TE monster type potential…btw, Jenkins spent time on Washington States basketball team :)

    3) Donte Moncreif. We can debate if he isn’t worth a first or even second round pick. But with the 22nd pick In the 3rd round, we have to be fools to pass on giving Chip Kelly this type of WR talent. First of all, this baby Monster will only be a 21yr old rookie. He is a friggin Baby. If we have an offensive Genius, who values blocking for the run game, values size. Freak athletic ability, how could anyone not want to see what Chip can do with a baby monster who is 6’2, 220lbs ran a 4.4 flat..earned top scores at the combine out of All the WRs In broad jump, tied for 3rd best in speed and vertical leap. I just don’t see how Chip can pass on this type of young talent in round 3. How much more talent can you ever hope to see in a 3rd round prospect?

    4) Christian Jones OLB/ILB 6’3, 240lbs 33.5 arms. Kony Ealy is no Barwin in coverage, but he is a better athlete than Trent Cole, and will be more capable dropping into some zone, but if we are going to add an Ealy type, it’s important to add a ILB/OLB hybrid type who is strong in coverage and be a subpackage alternative to Kony..someone like KVN,Kirksey,Telvin smith…C.Jones is able to sub in for Meco or Ealy/Cole…

    5) Deandre Coleman..I’m convinced he will be Bennie Logan’s backup. 6’5, 315lbs, LONG ASS ARMS 34(3/8)..Quality two gapper, Frame that can easily add more weight..Most people will look at him as a 5Tec…remind you of Logan? That’s the point. PAC 12. Chip knows him
    .,
    6) I’ll bet anything we aquire a 6th round pick

    7) Safety from Western Kentucky Jonathon Dowling. 6’3, 190lbs 33(1/8) arms(long for safety)..This kid is Lanky, rangy, Long and his frame will allow him to add bulk and carry it well. TOP COMBINE SCORES out of the safeties: ran a 4.52 which is pretty fast for a 6’3 safety, and he had top score In the 60 yard shuttle….now if you are ready to write him off as some combine warrior, DONT..kid has a knack for making plays, plucking 8 INTs and Forcing 8 Fumbles these past two years…
    ..
    That is a realistic and Quality draft, we added size, versatile and athleticism everywhere..infusion of size 6’2 WR, 6’5 TE to our arsenal of weapons…
    ..
    Added 3 BIG athletes to our front 7:
    6’4 275lbs
    6’3 240lbs
    6’5 315lbs
    ..
    Added another tall, long athlete to our secondary 6’3 safety, 190lbs, but will probably end up playing around 205lbs when he is done developing

    • George

      If this happens…I will be very happy, esp. if we could get something for Gharam, bryce

      • George

        Imagine our arsenal…
        Mac
        Coop
        Shady
        Ertz
        ASJ
        Sproles
        Moncrief
        Benn(Still convinced He can contribute)
        Celek
        Am I missing anyone??? I’m a little braindead today

        • cliff henny

          brown? DAT in 7th, good draft, needs more weapons

        • GEAGLE

          It would be insane. FYI I’m a HUGE Rejus Benn fan. If by some sports science miracle he can stay healthy for one season dude could have have a nice role on this team…
          ..
          Everyone in philly is obsessed with 3 fingers,…I want the “slut package” aka Chip holds up 4 fingers lol…Ertz and Casey flanked out wide one one each side,,.Celek and Sefarian Jenkins one on each side of the line,,,with Sproles as the tailback..,,I have no clue how you guard that…if you use a bunch of DBs, we will smash you with tiny Sproles hiding behind 4 TEs…and every single LB you put on the field will be a mismatch…you can’t possible have enough LB who can keep up with Casey!Ertz,Celek.jebkins and Sproles…..
          ….
          This is still Andy’s team…but after this draft we will be half way into our transition to the Chip era,,.no undersized players from bumble Flock university…..when we walk thru airports, we will look like a football team, with players who are above average in size and length at every position, who will also be the best athletes, high Charecter, committed to do

          • GEAGLE

            Committed to make whatever Sacrafice for team success,,,,,

            We will be smart, physical, versatile, big, long and athletic at every position…and our draft picks will have played against the best competition…SEC, PAC 12…we won’t be drafting slow safeties from temple

    • oreofestar

    Think the Eagles go crazy at WR and target Evans, Benjamin and Coleman? Chip likes bigger people and Howie said draft was deep at WR. What do you think Geagle?

    • cliff henny

      YES!!! more more more WEAPONS!

  • George

    OK, so I Know This is a bit (Read:REALLY) Unrealistic, due to Chip & Howie’s love of draft picks, But I got a HAUL. Here we go.
    1.I mortgaged our future for Sammy Watkins. He fell to 12, and I gave our 1st, 2nd, and 2015 first to the ginas for #12 and the right to Sammy. How he fell this far, I’m not quite sure. There was a run on tackles, and I think three corners went. But anyway. He is a STUD. if we got him, along with Mac, Coop, Celek, Ertz, Shady, and Sproles, Our offense would literally be unstopable. So I had to do it, even if it was a tad (ok, more than a tad) unrealistic.
    3.I traded our 3rd to indy for their third and a 5th, to replenish some of our picks. Demarcus Lawrence fell, and I scooped him up. Some people think he will go in the late first, and I personally love him from the little tape ive watched. Having him and watkins would be a coup, and I think it would solve all our problems at WR/OLB. I think lawrence could be that good with some coaching.
    *NOTE: I traed out of the 4th round for the 1st picks in the 5th and 6th rds I think these extra picks would equal compensation for BG, plus the trade down with indy was quasi-realistic.
    5. With my first pick in this round, I took antone exum. I love him, and he is a big, lanky corner, which chip will appreciate. With pick #2, I took Justin Ellis from LA Tech. A HUGE body to clog the middle, should billy want that Nothing more than a run-stopper, but I think he could posess some value. And with indy’s pick, I grabbed Ahmad dixon. He will provide good depth, and is a good value here.
    6.I took Deandre Coleman. Geags is in love, and I think chip will be as well. Pac12 Guy who is similar to logan, I think we scoop him up.
    7. Aaron Colvin. Probably wont be here, but if he is, A no brained. 1st rd talent, I think a rdshirt year with sports science would do wonders for him. He can be ELITE, and I thin he would be in an eagle uniform, just not in 2014.

    So, what do you guys think. I would be Stoked if we landed this draft, Even though It won’t happen. Maybe substitute Evans for watkins, and I would still be exited.

    • GEAGLE

      Dude I’d friggin love that…you practically drafted all my favorite players..
      ..
      Sammy isn’t THAT unrealistic…well it is becuse we would never do it. But if we were willing to trade 1, 2 and next years 1, I’d bet someone would take that trade and let is draft him, ii just doubt we would be willing to part with all that.
      ..
      Lawrence is mad under rated. I love that dude, just worry about his Charecter…I don’t know if he has issue or not, but he has been suspended multiple times….that kid could become a stud at the next levels

      Exum is probably my fav DB in this entire draft. If another year removed from the injury and our sports science gets him his speed and athleticism back, then he will develop into a better Cary Williams,type who will battle you in press, and also provide,quality tackling,,if he can’t regain his pre injury form, Billy can easily move,him back to safety where he,played 3! Years. Right now he weighing around 213lbs, but he is capable of going up to a chizzled 220lbs …he fits the mold for a Chip CB
      ,,,
      I believe we will target Deandre Coleman,but I also really like Justin Ellis’s and both!are versatile enough to play nose!and end in 3-4, but I’d rather stick Deandre in at NT with his freakishly long Bennie Logan arms..

      Not crazy about Dixon

      • George

        I wasnt crazy about dixon either, but I wasn’t about anybody at that spot, and he was the best value

        • GEAGLE

          Take a look at Jonathon Dowling, western kentucky

          • George

            will do

          • George

            are we still doing this mock draft??

          • GEAGLE

            I’m here…anyone else confirming it for right now? I’m just sitting here watching the final four, so I’m in anytime the next twos Hours if can get people. 5 people total would be great, we can do it with 4

      • GEAGLE

        I would love Colvin..and we have 3 safeties and 4 CB we are comfortable playing so we can afford to IR a serious talent like him…problem is, we don’t have many picks…and a team like the niner has too many picks, so they can afford to draft him sooner in the draft than we can, so we basically have n shot at him, which sucks

      • Will

        just wanted to traded back for picks…

        • George

          we couldnt turn 6 picks into 16 in a normal year, and this is being labeled as the deepest draft in atleast the last decade, one person said its the deepest in the last 30 years. Si thats just unrealistic

          • Will

            8 picks…used 2014 & 2015 first RD picks…

          • GEAGLE

            Rams pulled a power move…they traded out, someone gave them a pick to grab a WR, and the Rams still came away with elite WR

          • oreofestar

            the Rams are nasty on draft day :P

          • oreofestar

            that back and forth last year was intense

          • Will

            Gnats select DT Aaron Donald…

          • GEAGLE

            Rams take CJ mosley

            lol you just want Pryor to fall

          • George

            im not taking pryor @ 22, seems as if eagles dont value secondary, so I doubt the pick is in the secondary unless he can seriously contribute on ST

          • oreofestar

            make sure to listen to trade offers ;)

          • George

            oh dont worry

            I asked for a trade!!! :P

          • GEAGLE

            Sorry my comp slow…you will have to ask Howie for a trade :)

          • oreofestar

            last year should be the blueprint for a team with 2 1st rounder

          • George

            amen

          • oreofestar

            Use one to go up and get elite player use other to go back and pick up what you lost they came away with Austin and Ogletree and essentially lost nothing

          • George

            The RGKnee trade gave them so many options

          • GEAGLE

            Yup…titans on clock

          • oreofestar

            I took Barr no one wanted the pick

          • George

            Geags you on clock with rams

          • oreofestar

            I am Titans, the pick is being shopped

          • oreofestar

            it seems as if no one is interested so I shall take Bar

          • GEAGLE

            Bills take Ebron

          • oreofestar

            Oh yeah that is what I have been thinking

          • oreofestar

            I was deadset on taking Clowney at 3 and you ruined it

          • oreofestar

            I was hoping Clowney was here Jags take Mack

          • Will

            Browns select Greg Robinson OT Auburn…

          • GEAGLE

            Good pick…raiders take manziel

          • oreofestar

            ….

          • GEAGLE

            I was supposed to make that pick right? Flacons on clock

          • George

            Yeah they got Matthews… and i have rams too

          • oreofestar

            I am gonna go Will on you I am the Titans can I trade up from my 3rd round pick and give you firsts for the next decade (jk)

          • George

            haha nah were taking evans

          • oreofestar

            !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • George

            Rams need to know if bradford is guy…top tackles off, so they get him another big body to win jumpballs

          • oreofestar

            Evans was supposed to slide to 22

          • George

            i wish but not gonna happen, better to start preparing now

          • oreofestar

            no no noo he has an agreement with Chip he is gonna fail a drug test so he can slide

          • Will

            how do you go twice mattews then evans?

          • George

            falcons then i traded back from #2

          • oreofestar

            Because I was the Bucs and traded up

          • oreofestar

            its your pick go Vikes

          • oreofestar

            yeah you were I am just surprised by it

          • GEAGLE

            I bet the raiders wanna do something crazy like trade back to 11 and draft Brandin Cooks!! I hate Manziel…I wanted to make sure I sent him to a hell hole :)

          • oreofestar

            lol

          • oreofestar

            these QBs already slidin’

          • George

            if watkins were on the board hed be all over it lol

          • GEAGLE

            Lucky rams keep trading back and getting more ammunition

  • GEAGLE

    Green Bay takes Pryor…sorry

    • George

      Trades for 22? The more unrealistic the better :)

      • oreofestar

        Tell everyone to back the hell off you can have a 3rd but it is going to be 94 and not 77 and I will toss in our first 7th rounder with the 31st pick

        • George

          Leaning twoards kony right now so If you want him make a good offer

          • oreofestar

            then take Kony I love him lol

          • oreofestar

            unless someone wants to trade then I will just kill them

          • Will

            did he take Kony?

          • oreofestar

            Yeah look up top

          • George

            If im howie and im here Id try to get denver and cincy interested and statr a bidding war… rather have a 1, 3,4 than kony

          • oreofestar

            but we are being realistic this is not 3 and 4 range

          • George

            OK

          • oreofestar

            I mean I know the class was weaker but Rams went down from 22 to 30 for a low 4th which is like a low 3 in this draft

          • George

            yeah but if they really want kony, who IMO is the last of the top teir pass rushers in this draft, could get a bidding war started and land a haul

          • Will

            AR takes Marquise Lee WR

  • GEAGLE

    You can tell we were realistic about it…both safeties off the board, no Barr, no Evans, NO ODB :)

    • oreofestar

      no Cooks, no Ford either

  • George

    Kony Ealy to eagles… Have him sit behind cole for a year, get coached up, and then we have an aldon smith thyp player rushing the passer

    • oreofestar

      I shall trade with myself I am jumping the Bengals….49ers receiver 23rd pick Chiefs receive 30th pick and 94th pick, 49ers select Darqueze Dennard

  • Will

            Rams received 3rd and 5th round picks, and Chiefs 94th pick

  • GEAGLE

    We should all plan one of these…we will set it up a week in advance so everyone knows the exact date and times, and we will get 16 people, everyone is assigned two teams and we will do 7 rounds with trades

    • George

      Thatd be fun….im down

      • GEAGLE

        Let’s set it up for next Sunday, so we will spend this week getting guys invOlved

        • George

          OK, lets do it

  • oreofestar

    So we’re done for the night?

    • George

      Yea

      • oreofestar

        so when should we continue tomorrow

        • George

          IDK, but I just made a word doccument with all the picks that ill paste into the thread tmr for refrence

          • oreofestar

    Ryan Shazier, Jace Amaro, Austin SJ, Bradley Roby, Carlos Hyde, Morgan Moses, Xavier Su’a-Filo, Allen Robinson, Derek Carr, Jason Verrett, Deonne Bucannon some of the notable names still available

    • GEAGLE

      Can the Texans actually take Carr if they didn’t get a QB in round 1? Lol

      • oreofestar

        no they are not allowed to

  • borntosuffer

    I know it’s only been a bit over a day. But, man, will I ever be happy to NOT see the headline: “Jackson: I was sitting there waiting for a reason why” at the top of Birds 24/7.

  • GEAGLE

    Come on man….Yous had this same thread up since Friday….geez

  • GEAGLE

    LAwlor did his first Mock…meh
    ,,
    1) Kyle fuller
    2)Jordan mathews
    3) Marcus smith
    4) Brent Urban
    5) Isaiah Lewis S
    7 ) trey Hopkins….
    ….
    Not crazy about this mock…I like Fuller, but I don’t like him as the 22nd pick in a deep CB draft

    I like Jordan Mathews, I just don’t like the pick if we are only drafting 1 WR

    Marcus Smith, LOVE the pick…I just don’t know that I would wait til the 3rd to pluck him
    ..
    Brent Urban is a really solid pick…not only do I like it, but I suspect the Eagles will be high on him…he gives is a quality backup to Ced
    ….
    Isaiah Lewis I hate….ok player, limited upside, great at nothing…..rather go with someone raw but with a lot of potential for our coaches to work with like Dowling

    Don’t know anything about the OT

    From 1999 to 2013 Dan Snyder signed free agents who combined for 77 probowls before they signed with the Skins…out of all those players, ONLY Deangello CANDY BAR Hall made the probowl as a deadskin lol

    De Sean, I hope you run your way to a championship someday. I hope it doesn’t come at the expense if the Eagles, but the idiots in the front office have no one to blame but themselves if you do. And now I have another reason to make the Redskins my second favorite team.

    Strictly from a football operations move this was a boneheaded move.
    Properly handled, Jackson should have returned to the Iggles a third round choice at the least.
    Its now gone from Gangsta ties to missing meetings to bad locker room vibes.
    Everything is innuendo and guesswork.

    The facts are these:
    Jackson was the #1 receiver.
    His speed and big play potential opened up opportunities for other players.
    Today, the Iggs are a weaker team without Jackson AND they’re going to have to make adjustments in the draft.
    In a sense the defense just took a hit as well because they won’t be able to focus just on the D in the draft.

    But, the real bottom line plays out next year.
    Chip Kelly has had one good year in the NFL…
