  • Yeah, that's hardly something to wish he was off the team about. Especially considering that would leave Ellis Hobbs and Joselio Hanson as the starters at CB.

    • Yeah the everyone on the team could improve. Fans talk about how Reid sucks at calling plays at times, running a more balance offense. Front office making bonehead moves and trades, letting players go that are the teams face. And the players well complain about them all the time as well.

        Alright here is the story, http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/...t_be_easy.html

        Andy Reid says:


        and Asante Samuel responds...
        http://www.csnphilly.com/pages/landi...594&feedID=692


        Asante Samuel **** you.
        Really you are the prime example of why people think Philly fans are a bunch of nuts. The Eagles have done very little to improve this off season and nothing Asante said was a lie. FO has done very little to improve the team which was really 4 Players away from being one of the best in the NFl. A interior Offensive line man, A DE, An OLB and a good safety. We cut Will, close to trading of McNabb, Kinda improved at DE with Tapp and taking a risk as safety then traded off Brown. Really i can't blame Asante for saying what he did. This team was close now We are not retooling we are rebuilding when you put that much stock into draft picks.

        Reid is a good coach but makes bonehead calls. That is a given he doesn't run the ball much look at the end of not this season but the last when the eagles ran the ball more. They were hard to stop. Now also Asante does need to work on his tackling but really you want to run off one of the better corners in the league because he speaks his mind?

        Thumper please quit running your mouth like a madman. I am sorry but you don't know what bad seasons in Philly are like. The last time the Eagles really stunk you were still figuring out what side of the sandbox smelled the best.

        • Okay, I realize what Samuel said was completely right and that is why I'm a little ticked about it. Regardless of whether or not you think the coach is doing a good job, you don't go text a reporter that the Coach needs to get better, the frontoffice needs to get better etc. etc. You don't do that stuff and if he does do that stuff, I really can believe that Samuel ignored Sean McDermott when Sean told him to press Miles Austin. And Samuel really does need to shut the **** up, all Andy did was ask you to tackle, is that such a hard thing to do? Asante was the worst tackling corner in the NFL last year and it cost the Eagles big time on occasion. Yeah Asante, you can get interceptions, but remember all times that he completely ditched his assignment and jumped routes? I do, it sure led to some nice highlights, but he also got burned a few times doing it. All Andy wants you to do is tackle and its sad that he has to do that seeing as Asante is kind of a defender.

          You just don't question the coaches authority.

          And the team has improved, they added a veteran secondary presence in Marlin Jackson and whether or no he starts he is certainly an upgrade in terms of back-ups and he would be a valuable role player as well lining up at Nickel, FS and occasionally SS. Darryl Tapp is significantly better than Chris Clemons, he was one of the best run defenders in the NFL, he had 13 QB hurries and 15 QB hits (he is 5th in the NFL in this category). And then on offense, they added one of the best short yardage specialists in the NFL in Mike Bell. And while he seems like a lousy compensation to Sheldon Brown, Alex Hall is actually fairly decent in space, or at least better than Gocong in that regard and he is a good special teamer.

          Plus you've got to take into account the natural progression of the players, DeSean Jackson, Brent Celek, Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy and the offensive line will all be better. I know the offensive line improving might not seem true, but after having a year to gel, they'll pull it together this season, you could see with all the injuries and missed time that the line lacked chemistry and they didn't know what the person next to them was going to do, that will change this year once everyone is used to each other. And on defense, again you have to account for the natural progression of players, Moses Fokou struggled with the mental aspect of the game but he showed us nothing that says he lacks ability. Macho Harris was in his first year playing FS and he didn't have a good feel for it yet. And Stewart Bradley is coming back, that is the biggest addition of the offseason for the defense, Stewart Bradley is coming back, he was on the verge of becoming an all-pro in his first season starting according to some.

          This team hasn't gotten worse, the only real loss has been Sheldon Brown, Witherspoon can be replaced by Akeem Jordan, Clemons/Howard are replaced by Tapp. Gocong is replaced by Hall and Fokou. Westbrook's production will be replaced by LeSean McCoy, Mike Bell and Leonard Weaver. Kevin Curtis' production will be completely blown away yet again by Jeremy Maclin. The Eagles still have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL.

          And there hasn't even been a draft yet, if this team can continue to build on the already super strong supporting cast around Kolb, this team can go to the playoffs. The Eagles will be choosing between 3-4 corners on draft day in round 1 and there is a ton of depth at that spot as well.

          And I might have been young when the Eagles were bad, but I still know more than you do so get out of here with that crap. I know damn well how terrible the Eagles were under Ray Rhodes and I really don't need to see a terrible team to appreciate all the success the Eagles have had.

          • He is just asking the whole organization to act better and be up the their potential. He probably like why you pointing me out only, this was a team effort.

            • Thumper I know that in the 70's the Eagles were horrible. I see it on TV, and read it from time to time online. I did not witness first hand how that felt, and the humilation that comes with being the worst team in all the league. The way things were under Ray Rhodes, as a passionate Eagle fan can demoralize you. I am in no way shape or form insulting your intelegence. What ever happened to the Eagles in the 70's to me is of no emotional significanse, cause I did not live in the era. Losing sucks and when endure it so much, you apreciate this team much more. You are a bright and well knowlegable poster, and can win many debates on the forum. But losing is something you are not familiar with. Dont take this personal, im just sharing a little of my pain I have been put through by our team.

                • *bangs head against wall*

                  The Redskins? Really? Why within the division? I can't believe this...smh

                  • Kolb, if you fail I am going to be so uber pissed.


                    And as for McNabb leaving, I don't care at this point, I knew he was gone since the third quarter of the Dallas game in the playoffs. It was a nice run but not nice enough. I really do like McNabb and I appreciate everything he did for Philadelphia and everything he did for the franchise. He has been nothing but a class act in the face of the most adversity probably ever faced by a QB. I really do enjoy McNabb, I'm glad I got to watch him for so many seasons. This chapter of Eagles history is closed and it was a good chapter, not a great one, but a good one. Thanks McNabb for being a good guy on the field and off the field.

                    • McNabb and Shanny might make a pretty good pair. Roll outs and bootlegs, he may even resign with them.

                      Really why trade in division though?

                              • I'm sorry, but there's really no positive spin I can put on this.

                                The Eagles are completely screwed next unless Kolb turns into the next freaking Tom Brady.
