I embrace I was completely wrong on the Eagles draft intentions....

It is depressing because they have set themselves up badly for the future unless they strike gold in all their FA signings.

They get their QB but it means that they won't get anything else until the 3rd round this year...and next year they won't have a first......and they wasted about 12% of cap this year....(although I am told by some here that cap doesn't matter.lol)

I can only hope that they did the right thing......

Striking gold is what matters, whether it is in FA or by draft picks. #crapshoot

What's the difference between this and before they made the trade?

12% of the cap on the QB position doesn't seem so bad, what do teams normally spend on their QB depth?

Embraceable you. biggrin.gif

I have no idea why you and others are so bent out of shape about this. I'm not jumping up and down for joy or in anger but it's nice that they did what they felt they needed to do to get the friggin team over the hill and win a Super Bowl. They may be right or they may be wrong - I doubt anyone here KNOWS one way or the other - but I like that they did what they thought they had to do.

It ain't over 'til it's over!

I don't mind the trade and I don't mind them signing Bradford...I mind them doing both.......regardless of all the "the cap doesn't matter" nitwits...it really does.....it is why Maxwell is in Miami.....and they could have use that money to sign another high priced FA at a position of need.....I am thinking that could have bought a pretty nice player or 2....

That is the only problem I have....
JeeQ
Fuck me... every time I think this team can't really be that fucking stupid they raise the fucking bar
