    I hate to rain on the collective parade of Philadelphia, but Stacy Andrews is not very good, and certainly not worth 7 mil per year. He gave up more sacks that any other Cincinnati offensive lineman in 2008, and this line included such turnstiles as Levi Jones and Eric Ghiaciuc. Furthermore, that was in a contract year! If he can't motivate himself to elevate his level of play in a contract year, than good luck when he has a long-term deal.

    You can rationalize his poor performance to being a Bengal, if you like. However, there is much more to it than that. If you take into account his poor performance, the fact that he now has one bad knee, and that he has always had trouble keeping his weight under control - I think Philly cuts him after 2 disappointing seasons and eats his considerable cap number.
    If you could point out this "parade", that'd be much appreciated. I've already stated that the Eagles overpaid and that he's a mediocre player, but hey, ignore facts in the midst of your good time.

    "Parade", nice call.

      I think it would be a huge mistake on the Eagles part to waste a first round pick on Brandon Pettigrew. For a second rounder, Philadelphia must me kicking themselves that Tampa Bay got Kellen Winslow. That Philly offense would be sick with K2 sprinkled in there.

      Brandon Pettigrew just doesn't seem like a guy with much of a ceiling. His athleticism leaves a lot to be desired, so his offensive game may be a bit limited. I do agree that they go RB with one, for sure, and they might grab a OT, which wouldn't be that bad of an idea depending on who is dropping.

        Philly should be happy with whatever TE they can get in Round 2. Nelson, Ingram, Beckum, Coffman, Casey...some great options.

          Call me crazy but I liked what I saw from Celek at TE for the Eagles. I think he could be all right. Tough break for the Eagles though, with Jermaine Gresham deciding to stay in school. You'd have to think he'd be a guy they'd want in round 1.

            Ya, Celek did well. I like Pettigrew, but part of me thinks Pettigrew just won't make it...

              It would've been a good signing if it was to a team that planned on putting him at RG. He was a monster at RG, at RT he was not good. I think this is a mistake, I wanted the Bengals to re-sign him but for depth and future at RG.

                Good for the Eagles, Anderews is a player I've always liked and pulled for hope he does well.

                  He has a ton of potential though, and with Juan Castillo coaching him he can be really good at RT.

                    He'll be 28 when next season starts, the potential train is leaving town. He's good at guard, not so much at tackle. Our team might struggle with certain things but they can develop Oline talent, he wasn't working out at RT at all. I would've been disappointed if we brought him back at any kind of contract to start as our RT. In the run game at RG he just destroys people.

                      Reid didn't even say which position he will be played at, he said he can play LG or RT and they didn't pick one or the other yet, so even if he starts the season at RT he could always be moved.

                          A lot of a tackles blocking requires some help from the tight end and his guards on the inside, none of which the Bengals have.

                          Not only that but really, they had a lot of roster alterations at running back and quarterback. Not getting any help, ever on your side of the line and not getting any help from a running back if there's a bandit breaks through and probably a QB holding on to the ball too long trying to get something going down a few points, Tackles will give up more sacks.

                            Yep, having his brother next to him will help him tremendously, as will a QB that can move very well in the pocket.

                              Willie Anderson went to Hawaii year after year with Bobbie Williams to the left of him. They destroyed teams in the running game. Reggie Kelly is one of the better blocking TE's in the league. Andrews had both (last year and the year before) and was not very productive at RT. Help was not an issue.

                              All Ryan Fitzpatrick did was move in the pocket, many times it was running from the guy who beat Levi or Andrews. Bobbie Williams is a very solid RG.

                                This is a good move by the iggles. Regardless of which position he plays, he can be a monster. It was clear he didn't want to be here this past season and I think he can be very good at either guard or tackle.
