But the Eagles have a very solid machine in place, and Tom Heckert and the scouting department can handle this. I mean its not like they have to send a carrier pidgeon to get his input. Good thing for the Eagles is that they take care most of the pressing work (signing young talent) the season before, and always have a solid cap situation in place (with a plan).

It's certainly not what I would call "good," but its not the end of the world either.

I doubt it will set them WAY back considering the tear they went on, and they don't have many of their own players to resign (stallworth, Garcia, Juquas Thomas) and I'm sure they have their ideas on how hard they will go. according to Joe Banner (eagles president), the FA plan was pretty much established anyway.

I think it is going to be somewhat of a problem come draft time, but we shall see. His main role, from what I understand isn't picking the players per se, but in interviewing them--seeing if they will fit in with the philsoophies etc.


He's going to be back by the owners' meetings at the end of March. Heckert is a very good talent evaluator in his own right. Plus, Reid is going to be working from home.

This won't set the Eagles back as far as people think it would.

Yeah, I also heard today that he might come into the office a few times in that period as well.
