Michael Silva of Yahoo has written some negative stories about Roseman as well.

Didn't they also state that they put too much of a burden on him with line calls and they'd be going to Kelce. Which meant we'd see improvement in blitz pickup and overall effectiveness about Vick since he'd be thinking less. Well, that didn't seem evident in the first game. So either Vick still has a prominent role in identifying blitzes and coverages or Kelce just plain sucks at it.

I read through all the goodbye posts from all four of you and it was truly a sad day reading everything. I meant to comment immediately after, but life and work take up my time as well. The moment I heard McD was out, I constantly refreshed the blog hoping even one of you may be tempted to make a few comments. Alas, it truly seems our marriage is over. The Eagles are all abuzz only a week after a defeat and there is no more action at igglesblog. I want to thank you first and foremost, Derek. I came across this site from a link on ColdHardFootballFacts.com at least 3 years ago. I'm not sure on the exact time frame, but I probably starting reading/commenting here a few months after you began. To see this thing grow so much is really amazing. Just like you, I too need to try to get on twitter more often. I've had an account for a few months, but rarely sign in. I'm hoping some site fills my dark void in my soul now. :) Hopefully Tommy is the answer. I'll miss your insights most of all, but your banter on the comments was truly second to none. Gabe, I started reading BB after Derek started linking to it. It was always amusing and you never disappointed after your move here. Thank you. Sam, nothing more can be said that has not already been said. You are really amazing. I've learned a lot more about football from you outside of the actual game that's played on the field. Tommy, I look forward to continue my reading of whatever you can produce. I appreciate your inside information. Hopefully you can keep up the game reviews and respond to comments and questions on upcoming draft picks. All in all, thank you for a great site. It's a shame that I'll have to delete it from my favorites, but at some point it'll be done. It'll still remain a great reference to return to for future Eagles' seasons ahead. Brian, hopefully you keep up on McNabb or Kolb. I enjoy your writing a lot.

This draft will be so different. They can't even trade around with players for picks. Where we are now is where we are on draft day. Sam, can they trade picks on draft day as long as players are not involved?

Does he really undervalue certain positions? I guess you can argue he doesn't put much investment in linebackers considering their lack of higher draft picks there. But I guarantee you if Jim Johnson told him he needed a 1st round linebacker, Andy wouldn't ignore him. Look at the roster. A lot of it is first round picks, low round/undrafted All-Pros and, arguably, top free agents.

Jevon Kearse? Still? Sheldon can't shell out $200 to his sister or whatever for a new(er) jersey? Or at least a quality, well-liked former player.

Another wasted timeout. I said they'd score on the first play after the timeout. Andy knows how bad they are down there. Let them be confused or unprepared. They'd probably be better off down there.

Another 3rd and one that's wasted. They lucked out with that fumble.

So, just like the Giants game, they decide to black out my screen during the game.

This team has a 2 to 3 year window with Vick anyway, right? You figure Asante can hold up too for another 2 years. Pair them together and have Vick leading the offense and you got a shot every week.

Rodgers was basically doing nothing through 2 quarters in the opener. Never know what will happen in this game.

I didn't read through the comments yet but do we think it might be a good idea to run more of a 4-2-5 against Green Bay with their lack of a running game? That's assuming we have the safeties to pull it off. Although Clayton could be the 3rd.

yukijersey.com All the authentics I have or my friends have purchased look as real to me as you can get.

Haha. I got the Kelly Green Celek and Kolb (avatar pic) over the summer. I am still pumped to purchase a Weaver jersey, but I'm waiting on whether he'll ever play football again.

I actually didn't get any odd Eagles' apparel. I got the traditional towel, blanket, shirt, umbrella and pillow combination. This is actually the first Eagles' stuff someone bought me in several years. I actually made the biggest faux pas of any fan. When I moved back home from several years in college and living in Maryland, I threw away a lot of old Eagles' knickknacks I had in my room in high school. Shame on me.

So Eli is better than McNabb because he won a Super Bowl, right?

He thought he was facing Penn State's zone defense.

So the Eagles may have to play 3 games in 13 days. 12 days if the Wild Card game is on a Saturday.

You mean MNF doesn't want to lose.

Moving my comment. So... how are this team's chances to beat Dallas next week on 4 days rest to Dallas' 7 days. They just got a huge screw job by the NFL.

Gabe, Maclin must read this blog. I saw the printouts of the pictures you put on here of Mosley's weird faces in his locker while being interviewed. It was pretty funny while I was watching it. I thought, "haha, is that the same pics Gabe posted?"

Off topic here. Tommy, my Uncle called me and said some of the DC/Maryland papers have been mentioning Shannon Breen out of West Virginia Wesleyan College as a sleeper OG/C in this year's draft. He said they mentioned the Eagles and Lions have showed up at a workout. Have you heard anything on this guy?

I'm pretty sure Baldinger has a man crush on Chaney.
