New York Daily New's Manish Mehta reports DeSean Jackson is unwilling to restructure the $10.5 million he is scheduled to make in 2014.
Manish added a source told him, "Philly is trading him or cutting him. That's a fact. They don't want him." Cutting Jackson would save the Eagles around $6 million against the cap this season and, more importantly, about $11 million against the 2015 cap. The Eagles would obviously much rather trade Jackson, but his unwillingness to restructure and the Eagles' intention to cut him make a trade unlikely. The Jets and Panthers would lead the chase if/when Jackson is released.
If DeSean gets cut, it'll be a situation similar to Smitty's where he can take less money because his old team will still be paying him too. Maybe that's why Gettleman is slowplaying this (like everything else).
We had a hard ass schedule, hard division. We earned homefield but wont get it. Lets say that was us instead of the saints, would you like it then?
End of the day NFL teams dont create their own schedule. You beat the teams in front of you and should get rewarded for doing so. I could careless about the seeding, better record = homefield
Wildcard was added later. It's an incentive to get more people into the playoffs. If you didn't win your division, you certainly don't deserve to have homefield advantage. If we lost to a 7-9 team in the playoffs like the Saints did, then we don't deserve a Super Bowl anyway.
If we lose the division to the Saints, then no, we don't deserve homefield. Especially considering we lost to the Seahawks anyway.
I don't need a chart. If SF wins, we win and Seattle looses, SF wins the West, we beat SF in the first tiebreak category. We get the #1 seed.
He was just amazed at how there was only one likelihood for the Panthers getting the #1 seed. Calling someone an idiot when you can't use the correct form of "loses" is hilarious though, so please continue.
The biggest thing to note is that it's Cam's legs, along with the legs of other QBs mentioned, that extend a play from 2.5 seconds into 4-5 seconds to try and make a play or escape pressure only to find the entire line has failed them.
Watching the game, there's a reason you scream at the TV or in the stadium for the o-line to do its job.
I agree with the op. I love star.... i was meh on kwann short...but after that i completely say this draft is straight up dog turds. In gettleman we trust my ass. This might be(beyond the first two picks) the worst draft ever.
Last year I watched the board for round 1 and all I saw were posts of people complaining about Keek because WE ALREADY HAD 3 LINEBACKERS RABBLE RABBLE.
One year later, everyone's sucking everyone off over the pick and how he's the cornerstone of our defense.
This year, everyone's complaining because we don't have another 5 string CB but instead took a backup LB and a RB whose job will be to receive (something D-Will cannot do at all and J-Stew isn't amazing at)?
Some people are acting like not getting some defensive back that's been passed up by everyone in the draft for 4-5+ rounds is suddenly the end of the world.
Look at what the Giants did--a team that's won 2 Super Bowls recently and taught Gettleman how to draft. They took Ryan Nassib.
THEY HAVE ELI MANNING.
I doubt Giants fans are throwing crap at each other because a pick was spent on a QB despite their lineup.
The Panthers, stat-wise, were ranked 13th in least amount of passing yards allowed. And no, you can't say teams just ran on us because the Panthers ranked 14th in least amount of rushing yards allowed.
Our secondary is lacking flashy names. What did the Falcons with Asante get them? Destroyed by Russell Wilson AND Colin Kaepernick.
What did the Jets with Revis and Landry get them? Nothing.
Our team's front seven has been solidified and we will now be able to do more packages on defense.
Not getting a 5th round safety or cornerback is NOT the end of the world. I know this has been said before, but holy crap guys. Your bloody tampons are making it too hard to read the board.
