"@Jeff_McLane: Chip Kelly on trading up for Marcus Mariota: "Let's dispel this now. I think this stuff is crazy." Looks like it's between Sanchez and Bradford after all..

Also "@EaglesInsider: Kelly said #Eagles were offered a first-round pick this morning for Bradford" if this is true and isn't a smoke truck then I'm seriously wondering as to why we haven't accepted:

Chip lied his way thru the presser.....even if one were to assume he was telling the truth, don't assume the "first round pick" was much better than #20.

Funny, his "cut off the sportswriter's question right at the end and talk really fast" seem to start wearing on people.

I'm not so sure we're out on Mariota yet, as unlikely as it seems.

Yeah, get a 5th and give up our 4th.....have Sam Bradford give a press conference (presumably to announce he's a bargaining chip).....and I heard Chip said he was offered a first round pick for Bradford. I heard him scoff at the idea of giving up '20 picks' for MM.

I'm starting to see it now - this is all just a smokescreen to fool everyone into thinking we aren't getting MM.....wow, he really IS a genius!

Just accept it - it's over. Bradford is our QB.

You're likely right. I agree. But would anything surprise you with this guy at this point?

We signed Ryan Mathews and now people are talking about us signing Demarco Murray. Everything seems possible. Everything.

Nope. It's certainly been unpredictable.

He said these moves are salary cap based yet traded for Sam Bradford and his torn ACL and 13M contract

I hope that this is just a smoke screen. I'm not interested in acquiring Murray, even as talented as he is.

If Chip thinks he is a guy that can keep the chains moving, I have no reason to believe that isn't the case. That's really all I care about at this point.

Agreed. I was just speaking from a fan perspective. If he's wearing the laundry, I will cheer for him.

Considering that Foles was just trade, with a similar type injury history, your "logic" doesn't hold water.

Bradford's Injuries (Back To Back Torn ACLs) >>> Foles's Injuries (Broken Collarbone, Broken Hand)

We went with the player with the higher percentage to be injured this season...

I hear that on your third ACL tear you get a free yogurt... We'll have to see if Kiko or Bradford gets there first

Has Foles been healthy for an entire NFL season?

concussions > knee injuries ... Just ask the NFLPA

Concussions have only been pretend-important since the last 5 years... and that's only because the players are looking for an easy paycheck since they didn't save a dime. I remember the good old days when Bradshaw would go out there and throw 5 Touchdowns with 3 Concussions... all in one game! Back when men were men! ac6.gif
