No. I think he just wants backs that move forward. Shady danced too much in the backfield.
Ameer Abdullah is a great fit for them IMO. Kinda a poor mans Ray Rice
Murray to Eagles heating up
Abdullahs my favorite back in the draft right now. I see a lot of Jamaal Charles.
Hes nasty running out of a spread formation. If you force a team to play nickle and dimes he can gash them at 5-10 yards a pop.
so he's an even less durable foles with a giant cap number. awesome.
he wants a guy who hits the hole quick instead of dancing around.
i dont know, i didnt notice any problems with the last rb the team had. except that he didnt fit kelly's lemming requirements for players.
Tell him I said what's up.
Murray, Matthews and Sproles...not a bad trio. Very interested to see what Murray does behind the Eagles O-Line compared to the Cowboys O-Line...
Not for nothing but he has averaged over 5 yards a carry twice in his career. Once with a terrible line in 2011 and once with a mediocre line in 2013. He doesnt need a dominant OL to be effective
He played at least 13 games in those seasons. Got 217 carries and over 1100 yards in 2013.
So at this point is DB still the No. 1 need in Philly or has it become the WR position?
For all the heat Kelly's getting for his moves, I hope the Eagles take it to the NFC championship (only to lose to the Cards) just to quiet the critics.
rumors swirling that mathis is being shopped for a WR.
Jeff Fisher said today that he had received first round offers for Bradford from other teams but wanted Foles. Wow...I guess Chip was honest in the press conference.
Or they're in cahoots!
How old is Mathis now?
I dont think you guys need a top WR, just a contributor. A #2 guy. I think Mathews is gonna blow up
Even Tony Dungy would lie during free agency or pre-draft.
I agree. And I'm sure Chip wasn't honest about everything, but there was no reason for Fisher to lie after the fact. That leads me to believe Kelly was probably being truthful.
I dunno. Fisher saying that is a head scratcher. Did he ever say who made those offers and what else was involved in the offer(s)? Injured or not, Bradford stunk it up in St. Louis and I don't think he was Fisher's guy. Still think it was a Shurmur directed draft pick and Shurmur directed trade. If the Eagles shirt the bed on offense it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to see Shurmur get axed while Kelly stays at the helm. Just guessin' on something I don't want to happen.
Bradford was a good QB when he was healthy but that has been very rare the past few years.
If the Eagles shirt the bed on offense, Chip is gone
