    His 2011 stats are misleading....

    He throws a lot of interceptions in an offense that stressed the dink and dunk pass. His mid range and long passes hang too much and will get picked off in the pros. An ESPN analyst who used to QB for the Eagles even sees him as a later pick and a project. You wanted somebody who could become the Vick backup right away, and then become a team leader within 2 years. I don't see him becoming the backup anytime soon.

    He left MSU because he wasn't good enough to start, instead of staying and learning. That tells me that he won't listen to coaching. Personally, I believe he'll trip over his own personality on this particular pro team.

    He's the Rodney Stuckey of College Football...........:)

    I do enjoy getting a reaction out of you, but really feel this guy was a bad pick.....Remember...I'm estatic about your first round guy.......but that's it as far as this draft goes.

    Rascoe seems to be holding his own in Baseball fantasy. I'm 9-1 to start the Day Saturday. That would be nice to hold onto those numbers.........:)

    You're right. They should have picked up Andrew Luck. I think he is going to be good. Who would you have grabbed, nemo?

    Vinny Curry grew up a philly fan. He is so pumped to be an Eagle. Fantastic addition.He just met Brian Dawkins and his friend Boykins just joined the team.

    Brandon Boykin is a great pick at corner back.

    The Eagles are doing fantastic. The only mistake so far was drafting Foles over Cousins. But that might be a biggie.

    It looks like they will have great chemistry this season.

    I'm hoping that things align for the Eagles this season. They finished strong last year after an abysmal start.
    I agree with you that the new QB has the least potential of all their draft picks so far.

    Who is THIS guy, fish fry?? Good enough to make a good team with good wide receivers?? I would imagine they think he has a chance, or maybe they just needed a warm body to push the other receivers this summer?

    WR Elvis Akpa of Montana State

    The Eagles have reached terms with eight undrafted rookies, and two of them – WR Damaris Johnson of Tulsa and CB Cliff Harris of Oregon – are return specialists. The others: RB Chris Polk of Washington, S Phillip Thomas of Syracuse, WR Elvis Akpa of Montana State, WR Darnell Williams of Louisiana College, FB Emil Ikegwuonu of Massachusetts and TE Chase Ford of Miami.

    Polk (RB) is supposed to be very good. Interesting story with him. He claims the shoulder won't affect him or be a lingering issue. We shall see.

    The Philadelphia Eagles are trying to out stupid The Lions!

    Why is Michael Vick talking about the Eagles having the potential to be a dynasty? Did he learn nothing from Vince Young and the DREAM TEAM disaster last year? Dynasty! They can't even make the playoffs. Dynasty my arse! Just play football Michael. Keep your STUPID mouth shut and just play football.

    You should be sneaky and draft him in the first round just to spite me. I will pay anything for him. You sly fox , you. Always a step ahead of me, you are.

    Lucky you. La De. Maybe take your wife out to celebrate!

    I wasn't aware of those facts and I truly don't care. I like my team and I do what I can try and improve it. I make a lot of trades and work the free-agent list a lot. Every decision I make is not going to be a good one. I've taken the regular season not once not twice but three times on the forum by approximately two dozen games . I've also won two consecutive championships in the past on the forum. So when you have equaled that get back to me.

    Th
    The thing is Nemo, if you view my team as a threat you root for beach. However, if you plan to get a bye, you will need to root for me. It all depends on where you plan to be. I don't think you need to see my team as a threat. But you may be playing for a bye. A Hobsons choice. Maybe you can hope we tie.
