Thanks Sixx, i wanted to see what people had to say about Moose and all of the sudden Westy hijacks the thread ;-D

I bet Muhammed's price tag will end up being too high unless he absolutely wants to play for Philly. From the sound of it though, I think he's going to the highest bidder, which is more likely to be someone like Baltimore. If I were a Philly fan, I'd much rather have Porter, a young, deep threat who would open the field up tremendously for TO, Smith, etc. And get rid of Pinkston.

I would rather have porter as well. muhammed is too old, too expensive (which is why i personally left it that)

As for pinky -- he ain't going anywhere. He does get big plays. Its the smaller ones he seems to be a wimp about. He ain't that expensive, he is fast and can jump. Those are worth having around, even if his role is limited -- kind of how az hakem was with st. louis. if you had a situation where you groomed lewis and were able to throw out on a spread offense owens, porter/muhammed, pinkston, g. lewis and had westbrook, lj smith on the field too -- you could peridocially hit some homeruns. even with three of them on the field.

If todd "t rex" pinkston were the #3, he would be very valuable (to the eagles)

I think muhammed is staying in carolina to be honest. porter will go to minnesota, wouldn't eb surprised to see the ravens or jets end up with him either.

They do need a power running game.....perhaps the 40 or so yards during the super bowl will attest to that.....running up the middle is not such a bad thing?? :-]

for what its worth, I agree that sometimes you just need to force your will -- you need a power element to your game.

That said, its not like the eagles neglected this idea. I don't think the absence of lewis is the be all and end all, but his blocking skills were certianly missed. And over the course of the season, losing buckhalter, ritchie, shaun andrews certainly didn't help.

I think I want them to sign atrain to be honest.

Yeah, me being an Eagles hater would actually be happy to see the Eagles spend their cap space on Shaun Alexander or Edge, because that keeps Westbrook off the field more often plus it prevents them from signing a free agent wide receiver which is actually a bigger need.

If they sign Anthony Thomas I'm going to be pissed, because I think Thomas is a very underated running back and would compliment Westbrook perfectly, and they could probably get him relatively cheap.

i think you would see westbrook on the field concurrently with any rb they would sign though. play him as a hybrid slot/te pass catcher role -- innovate to get him against the Lb's and so forth.

that said, alexander is overrated.

Ok, I will take the bait. I see you fishing Eaglesrule. How exactly is Alexander overrated?
