    • I think Wilson makes the team because of his value to special teams.

      Thanks Eaglez.Fan

          Offense:

          QB: McNabb, Kolb, Feeley
          RB: Westy, Bucky, Booker
          FB: Davis
          WR: Curtis, Brown, Jackson, Avant, Baskett
          TE: Smith, Celek, Schoebel
          LT: Thomas, Dunlap
          LG: Herremans, Young
          C: Jackson, Cole
          RG: Andrews, MJG
          RT: Runyan, Justice

          Total: 25

          Defense:

          LDE: Abiamiri, Parker, Clemons
          RDE: Cole, Howard, McDougle
          DT: Bunkley, Patterson, Laws, Klecko
          WLB: Gaither, Jordan
          MLB: Bradley, Mays
          SLB: Gocong, Boiman
          CB: Samuel, Brown, Sheppard, Hanson
          FS: Dawkins, Reed, Demps
          SS: Mikell, Considine

          Total: 25

          Special Teams:
          K: Akers
          P: Rocca
          LS: Dorenbos

          Total: 53
          Young guys IRed or put on the practice squad:
          RB/FB Tony Hunt
          OL: Mike McGlynn
          RDE: Bryan Smith
          SLB: Andy Studebaker
          S: Marcus Paschal (eligibility: ?)
          CB: Nick Graham (eligibilty: ?)
          There are others, those are just some of the fringe guys that I thought I'd bring up.

          Some things I could see going the other way:

          Greg Lewis may make the team as a 6th WR, but that would put one of the Free Safeties out, IMO. Most likely Reed. Either that or Reed is moved to SS and Considine is cut. Reed is versatile enough to play either S, IMO.

          McGlynn getting the spot over Scott Young

          Studebaker getting the backup SLB over Boiman

          Bryan Smith making the roster and putting either McDougle or Howard out of a job.

          Abiamiri beign put on IR from his wrist and Smith making it as a RDE, putting Howard or McDougle at LDE.

          Tony Hunt winning the FB position.

          Wilson wins the third TE position.

          Graham makes the team as the 5th CB, putting in a similar situation if GLew makes the team. Either Reed or Considine would go.
          I guess I was pretty close, but there wasn't much to screw up

          The only changes:

          Hunt is the FB

          GLew is on the team, taking the tackle (Dunlap) out

          Dunlap was IRed

          McGlynn wasn't IRed and beat out Scott Young

          Smith beat out McDougle.

          Guys I expect on the practice squad:

          FB Jed Collins

          One or two of the WRs, maybe McBride will be in there

          DT Mike Marquart

          SLB Andy Studebaker

          One of the CBs, Either Arrington or Fontenot. Maybe both.

          That leaves two spots left, maybe the LB Roland will be there too.

          • I'm a little surprised no one posted in here since saturday.
            Well McDougle is with the Giants, I hope that doesn't come back to bite us. I don't expect him to bloom into a superstar, but I just hope he succeeds, just not against us, haha.

              Collins is on

              McBride is on

              Willie Reid is the other WR.

              Marquart is on

              Studebaker is on

              Arrington is on

              A tackle was added from somewhere else (Forget name, AGAIN)

              I forget who the other member of the PS is, I'll check it.

              • I saw on Comcast the Eagles signed Tank Daniels, the LB we had a few years back who was with the Giants. I'm not sure if he is on the PS or is taking over one of the bvackup roles, will check that too.

                • Trae Williams, CB is the last guy on the PS, and Chris Patrick is the tackle. Tanks Daniels took Boiman's roster spot, one thing I am very happy about, I was nbot a big fan of his.

                  • Agreed, Daniels is a much better STer and even looked great on D his rookie year, I'm happy about that move.

                    • Plus he is younger, hopefully we can keep him around longer too, unless Studey continues to develop and takes over for him.

                          best in the East imo.

                          i have concerns about Dallas's ILBs I think they can be had. But Philly is lights out across the board.

                            Really, my only concern is Gocong, i just don't like him as olb for the 4-3. I don't think he would do much as a 4-3 end, so I guess olb is the way for him, just we could get someone better.

                            Other than that I like all the other Lbs even the backups are beast.

                              in that scheme, the sam is just a run stopper or a pass rusher anyway. he does it well.

                              I think Gaither is a very good WILL, and Bradley is a PB caliber MIKE. Its hard to compare them to the Cowboys bc the scheme is totally different, but pound for pound I like Philly's backers better.

                              In fact, I think pound for pound Philly has a better defense period. Philly scares me this year. I think Philly could have the best team in the East.

                                Hard to say. On one hand they could be the best in the East like BBD said, and on the other hand they could be a pretty big disappointment if they don't live up to their potential.

                                Stewart Bradley could either be a future pro bowler or a borderline starter/backup. He has great size but isn't fast by any means. His first start last year he had a sack, an int, and like 8 tackles, hopefully he continues that trend going into this season.

                                With Omar Gaither you know you have a solid starter but nothing is outstanding about him. He isn't overly athletic or big but is around the ball a lot and led the team in tackles last year.

                                Chris Gocong could be the best blitzer of the bunch and could even line up at DE if needed. Not the best in coverage but has great size obviously as a former DE and has been a pleasant surprise in run defense.

                                At backup we'll start with Akeem Jordan, he has good size and athleticism and Jim Johnson has said if something happens to Gaither he wouldn't have a problem at all putting Jordan in at WILL, and he doesn't say that about a lot of players.

                                Rookie Joe Mays is the backup MLB and looks like a beast, draws comparisons to London Fletcher at 5'11 but runs down hill very well and is a tackling machine and even lead the league in tackles in preseason with 30 I believe. Could use a lot of work in pass coverage.

                                Tank Daniels at backup SAM as previously mentioned is a very solid backup and was even competing for starter at SAM against Gocong early last year but didn't win the battle, Bradley being a SAM at the time we didn't have enough spots so he didn't make the cut which is why he ended up with the giants.

                                All in all LB could end up being a strength of the team which is a far cry from the days of Keith Adams and Nate Wayne, albeit Jeremiah Trotter was a beast back then.
