I think its very likely we keep him as our third RB his competition is Booker and Mendenhall, I think he is favored for it. He is a veteran big back, which we don't have (outside of Weaver), and that is valuble for us.

Ahh yes i knew i would forget something thats what i get for trying to do that late last night, Although I counted again and I count 53, either way i need to change something to get MJG in there

It is 53, my bad, but IMO, I'd either get rid of the 2nd FB or Rashad Baker, just my opinion though. Weaver can do everything we need our FB to do, and Harris looks good so far, so Baker isn't necessary.

The more I think about it the more I have a little bit of hope for Lorenzo Booker. If he can develop some patience he will be golden. He is super fast and he has the skillset to succeed in the Eagles system (if he can pass block). I still have faith!

People raved about him in the preseason last year, maybe he can do it again this year, but transfer those skills to the field.

His skills are unquestionable, he is very naturally talented and every year he puts on a show in training camp. Like you said it is just a matter of him being able to bring that ability to the playing field.

----------------------------

Also as I look at the roster I am getting pumped. The offense has added a ton of speed and they can stretch defense a lot of different ways with speedy playmakers like Shady, Westy, Maclin, Jackson, Curtis, Celek and Ingram. But some stuff that really flew under the radar and is being forgotten is the size the Eagles have as well. Have you seen the Leonard Weaver pictures? He looks like he is going to maul some people and then you factor in the new guys along the line in Peters, Andrews, Tupou and Fanaika, it is crazy. The line is the best in football and it is the biggest as well, they look ready to smash the defense in the mouth.

Then you move to defense where not much has changed. Abiamiri will finally get a full training camp and make his move for the LE spot and Victor is STOUT. Hopefully Bunkley can learn how to get to the QB; he is great at stuffing the run but when it comes to rushing the passer Bunkley has 5 sacks in three years. Plus the secondary depth is insane, the Eagles have never had this type of depth. At CB there are 4 starting caliber guys and 3 young guys who could make another roster elsewhere (Ike has supposedly looked really good). Then at safety there are two young playmaking free safties in Demps and Macho along with a veteran in Rashad Baker. Then at SS there is Mikell and Jones. This season looks like a good one and to me the Eagles are the superbowl front-runners.

Just somthing I noticed while looking over the defense; Mike Patterson and Trevor Laws look MUCH bigger than 304 pounds and 292 pounds respectively.

They were for sure above their reported weights during the season. Over the offseason I remember seeing a video on philadelphiaeagles.com where Trevor Laws was talking about how he has been losing weight this offseason so he can be more mobile on the field. Patterson will most likely be as massive as ever. As long as our DT's stuff the run I'm happy. We get a lot of sacks as it is.

I think the 3rd RB spot is a closr race betwee LoBo, Eckel, and Mendenahall, I have Eckel winning it because he showed a lot of promise last year in his opportunities and is a big RB, which we don't have outside of Weaver. I think with our OL, Weaver as the lead blocker, and Eckel running it, we would have no excuses not to be able to make short yardage and goal line situations. I like what LoBo brings to the table as a receiver, but we have a player like that in McCoy, only better. I think it'll be tough, but he is #2 in that competition for #3 RB, IMO.

I've been pumped about the roster since The Cornelius Ingram and Macho Harris picks. (including Maclin and McCoy of course) So I am in complete agreement with you there. The offense has immense speed at the skill positions, with the exceptions of Celek and Avant, but they are strong and can make playes using their power. The offense is set to be dangerous, especially with Ingram impressing as much as he has. Speed everywhere, and that will really make the offense even more dynamic than it was.

The size is astounding. If Cole wins the starting C spot, that makes our OL even bigger, and our smallest OL will be Todd Herremans, and he would be a measly (lol) 327, IIRC. Cole is 350 lbs, and would make the OL average over 337 lbs, IIRC. You all know my love for Weaver by now, he truly is everything we need out of a FB in this offense. If it wasn't for the Peters trade, I would be saying this is the best acquisition of the off-season, including the draft. He is young yet, and is just a nasty player. He will allow our offense to be more efficient, as he is a threat in every aspect of the game. I've seen a lot of Leonard Weaver, and guys, you all are going to love him.

The D actually got better from the talent perspective. We may need a few guys to step in and take leadership roles, expect Mikell and Bradley to do so, but this is basically the same squad from a year ago, only with more experience. And last years defense was top 5! Demps brings more range back to the FS position that we lost with Dawk aging, and Abiamiri will make a huge impact for this defense. Thumper, as well as all of you, know how I feel on Abiamiri, he will be the Bunk of our DEs in terms of run stuffing. He will make a bigger impact in the pass rush as well. Don't worry about Bunk, he was brought in to free up space for the rest of the front 7, he wasn't known as a pass rush specialist, and he has done jsut that. I expect him to improve slightly as a pass rusher, but this is basically what you are going to get out of him. Check on Bunk's TFL's I'm sure you will be surprised by that.

But throughout this team there is depth galore. We have 6 legitimate receiving threats, as well as 3 legitimate threats in the backfield, 2 TEs who can be relied on, 8 or 9 OL that are starting quality, 5 starting quality DEs (as well as a young one with LOADS of potential) 2 starting calibur WLBs and MLBs, 4 or 5 starting calibur CBs, 3 starting calibur Safeties, and good backups. There is talent everywhere on this team and all along the depth chart.

Everybody's should be pretty much the same as the team is pretty well set, the only difference between yours and mine in 3rd RB and TE.

Here is the final 53 as I see it right now, after looking at the Preseason games.

Total: 3 (53 overall)

I really think Klecko should make the team, but this is just one of the ways I see it panning out. A few changes since this was last made, Vick (of course) in over Feeley, Buckley over Eckel and Booker, new TE Tony Curtis, Gibson makes the team, Jackson retains starting C spot, Justice wins RT over Tupou, Babin beats Bryan Smith for our 6th DE spot (I could see them keeping 5 DEs to keep Klecko, but with injury history of players at DE, I doubt it), as well as Gaither moves to MLB, and Fokou takes his spot.

Definitely more movement in there than anticipated, but injuries play a factor in this as well.

If Gibson doesn't make our team, he will be signed by someone else, there is no way we can put him on the PS and he will make it. He may be IRed or something, in which case I can see Klecko making the team. A few O-linemen may be IRed or PSed, and Bryan Smith may see the same thing, or they could let him go. Wilhelm will be let go, as well as TEs Rob (whatever his first name is) Meyers and Eugene Bright. Booker will be let go, as well as Eckel, and Mailai will be PSed. One of our CBs will be PSed if they are still eligible (Williams or Patterson).

I think Klecko makes it as we should keep 4 DTs. Yes we have a history of injuries at DE, but 4 backups for 2 spots at DE as opposed to 1 backup for 2 spots at DT? The team also apparently likes Fokou at MLB so I put him there and left Gaither at WLB.

For the most part, everything turned out as I expected. All the OL made the roster that I had anticipated, and I pretty much nailed the enitre defense except for the addition of Dixon and both White and Patterson beating out Tank and Ike.

I didn't anticipate keeping 7 WRs, or only keeping 2 TEs, but for now we can do it, though I think once Vick is back Reggie Brown will hit the road. I would feel better if we added another TE to the roster though, even if it is only for this season.
