Full Version: Eagles considering Tannehill?

Rumor has the Eagles considering the idea of going after Tannehill. Do you guys think that is likely? Vick still has gas in the tank, and a couple of years left on his contract. And Tannehill is going to go awful high...probably higher than he is worth.

Still, Reid is considered a QB's coach in many parts of the league.

I just wonder if drafting somebody like Brock Osweiler in a lower round and developing him for a year or two wouldn't make more sense in ya'lls situation.

Only one thing is for sure - we're DEF drafting a WR or two

We need Linebackers...which makes taking Tannehill a lock.

linebackers are stupid. Even if you like LBs, there is no chance the Eagles take one.

As for Vick, he has at most 2 seasons left. If Tannehill is any good then by all means we should take him.

Reid has previous for drafting in advance of a need arising, and usually does so at the expense of a more pressing problem.

QB is such an important position that it does make sense to get someone in for a year or two before they take over to make sure that they are the right fit.

Tannehill is not getting past Miami at 8. I don't think the Eagles would give up what it takes to move ahead of them. They're just doing their diligence in case he slips.

I am pretty certain that it is nothing more than a smoke screen to mask their true intentions. They like to show serious interest in several players and then draft someone they did not even talk to........devious bastards...lol

And that's what I mean about overpaying...

I've watched Tannehill play down here, and he has a lot of potential, but there is no way i would have EVER considered him a top ten pick while watching him play.

I agree with you and RF. I believe they're really after Cox and Kuechly as a plan B. The Eagles need defense NOW and can get a developmental QB later. Besides, I don't think they want to mess with Vick's head by moving up for a "premium" QB.

fuck this, take kolb back from the cards and lets get some fucking linebackers already. We need to stop thinking of the future and double down on now. Vick is our ticket to winning the superbowl and if we undermind his value then we will be waiting in line for the lombardi another 10 years.

Forget that, it would be a waste we are fine in the QB department.

agreed. after this season will be the time to make such a decision. No need pulling the trigger on another "Kolb" considering no one past Luck and Griffin is really worth drafting that high (IMO).

15 should be a contingency plan for Kuechly and if Stephen Hill is available.... then they can get him with a later pick. Or something. A need that isn't QB.
