  • Sheldon Brown has gone from being one of my favorite players to one of my least favorite in a matter of days.

    • I really hope this isn't as big a deal as everyone is making it out to be, but if it is, I think top priority in the rest of the off season should be to get our players happy. Whether it be contractual or something else, we don't want this type of environment for the team, especially with so many young players around.

        There is none anymore.
        Once a player signs a humongous contract, IE: Peters, other self-proclaimed 'best' left tackles in the NFL will command a new contract, feeling as if they are better and are worth more. If the team does not grant their wish to get a new deal, they may demand a trade, hold out, whatever. This is the situation the Bills were put in. They didn't feel that Peters was worth the money he was demanding, so they had to get rid of him so they could get something in return, instead of having to deal with a potential holdout (yet again).

        There lies one of the problems in the league. All Peters had to do was wait it out, and command a new deal with an outrageous salary. Since the Bills didn't feel he was worth it, they shipped him out, granting him his wish. Hopefully this doesn't become the usual from this point on...

        • I think it is one of the many things that may have to be addressed in the new CBA.

          • Well I'm releived about something, the Eagles are starting to release smokescreens about not necessarily taking a RB in the first round. I was beginning to think, since all we've heard is that they will, that was a smokescreen for selecting something else. Read in in my paper this morning, so that is one less thing I have to worry about.

              • Do you mean that is a smokescreen? I'm confused by the wording, the first time i read it I interpreted it as Shawn is in the process of being traded.

                • Either way, Shawn and Sheldon are staying, this is all a bunch of bs right now...

                  • If Shawn Andrews is injured goods, it might be best to trade him. Also, Sheldon Brown is getting old isn't he? I may be wrong. Either way, he's making waves. You would have to at least explore the possibilities.

                      Both are elite, and are valuable to the team. OL and CB are two of the most valued position on our team. I'm pretty sure (just have a feeling) that the Shawn Andrews rumor was instigated from an NFC East rival. Sheldon is 30, but his style of play won't be effected if he loses a bit of speed. Sheldon was our best CB last year, and Shawn, when healthy, is our best OL, they are too valuable for the team to trade. Lets also not forget they have cheap salaries for the next 4+ years. Crazier things have happened, but these two getting traded is extrememly unlikely.

                      • something to keep our eyes on Dallas drafted David Buehler a kicker in the 5th round so unless they keep 2 kickers either him or folk could come available and we cant afford to pass on a quality kicker with a vendetta against dallas.

                        Thanks Eaglez.Fan

                          There is 0% chance that Dallas gets rid of Nick Folk unless there is a freak accident and he has to have his kicking leg amputated. He has been awesome for them and kicked in the 90% range last season if I remember correctly. Dallas just drafted idiotically this year so maybe we can pick up their Buehler after they cut him.

                            I meant either of the two but it sounded like I was talking more about Folk.

                            • They drafted Buehler to be a kick off specialist so they'll most likely keep both. However the eagles did sign Sam Swank UDFA out of Wake so he could be competition for Akers.

                              • There is no chance the Eagles trade Shawn Andrews. He will be back and ready to go playing with his brother. I think they brought in Stacy because he is a talent and because he will help Shawn out with his emotional issues. I expect the Eagles OLine to be rather dominant this year, with excellent depth.
