Howie Roseman is a monster this year... I knew he would do something but Jay Ajayi for a 4th? laugh.gif

Does this move make the Eagles better at RB?

I admit that I am not very familiar with Ajayi. Looking at his numbers, I don't see anything that indicates he is any better than Blount or Smallwood.

Perhaps he can block blitzes better. That has been a weak point.

Another consideration is Roseman was playing keep away with Dallas.

Jay Train went to the Pro Bowl last year as an alternate. He's a powerful runner who can catch the ball and is rated 19 of 44 in blitz pick up ... Smallwood is 44, Blount is 33. The Dolphins OL is rated something like 28th run blocking in the NFL.

Philly building for postseason. Great defense and stable of power backs. Weather proof.

Thanks for the blitz pickup info. That is what I was looking for. Any improvement in that area will go a long way.

Who is the odd man out? Barner? Smallwood? I think they keep Blount and Clement.

Barner's returning punts and doing a decent job.

Now, get some help for the O Line and they'll be in as good a position as they can be.

Getting more excited...

Damn! Wentz and Jeffery are starting to get on the same page. Mack is beginning to see PT and is playing well. The defense is playing lights out. And now they have two bad ass RBs to take it to the defense.

And the fourth they gave up wasn't the highest of the three they had. It will be a late fourth. Damn!

Ajayi has dealt with a knee injury this year, so that will be something to monitor. ESPN's Jeff Darlington said the Dolphins don't believe Ajayi "has much left in his knees." But he'll need to pass a physical upon arrival to complete the trade. If everything checks out, the Eagles just bolstered their offense with a Pro Bowler.

Salguero said the Dolphins view Ajayi's departure as "addition by subtraction." In other words, whatever ability he has on the field couldn't overshadow the off-field issues and behind-the-scenes hysterics that were detracting from the team.

On Monday, Eagles coach Doug Pederson preached cautioned with making a move before Tuesday's trade deadline. He said any player the club brought in would have to need to be the right fit from a chemistry standpoint because that's a big reason the Eagles are 7-1.

Perhaps Ajayi will change his tune now that he's joining what appears to be a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Unfortunately, most people don't change overnight.
Fingers crossed ...

Hopefully, the Eagles locker room is the right fit for Ajayi. Doug Pederson seems to be one of the most laidback coaches in the NFL.
