Eagles and Bills: Major Trade

Recommended Posts

Great trade by Philly imo. You get rid of McCoy, who you would probably cut in a year or 2 anyways for a young, stud LB. The Eagles offense is a little concerning though. We'll see what Chip does this off season to compensate.

They will have Kiko and Spiller for the same price as McCoy

True but Spiller isn't half the running back McCoy is.

MLB is the new cushy soft spot for players with little athletic ability to land a career. Just wait for the DL to engage then land on the pile and earn a tackle. Those half tackles adds up. Kuechly is sneaky.

I like to believe you couldn't possibly post anything even stupider than what you've already done in the past.

And yet somehow you manage... :wacko:

I really doubt he cares.

Rumor has it that they are going to try and land Mark Ingram

Why should he be any different than the rest of us?

The bills and panthers have 2 things in common. They both have the best MLBs and they both had a losing record. What a joke! Neither NE nor Seattle have best MLBs. Heck, MLBs are just an afterthought for most good teams in the league.

 

Lol Wagner and Mayo might disagree with you there. Do you even watch football?

Wrong on pretty much every count :lol:

 

The Seahawks actually have one of the best middle linebackers in the league, Bobby Wagner.  Likewise, the Patriots thought enough of the position to use their first round pick in 2008 (10th overall) on Jerod Mayo, who won defensive rookie of the year that season.

 

As far as the Bills losing last year. part of the reason why is that they actually didn't have Alonso because he tore his ACL.  They inserted Brandon Spikes in that spot and, for the record, actually finished 9-7.

 

Every team that plays a 4-3 makes sure they have a good middle linebacker.

 

 

I'm keeping tab on him falling on that pile tho.

 

Leave the pile alone, Keek! lol

 

I like how the announcers try their best to put a good spin on by saying Keek is just finishing the play. The play has been finished. lol

 

He led the league in tackles two years in a row.

 

Good grief, you know absolutely nothing about football :wacko:

He could write down everything he knows about football and it wouldn't fill a post-it note.

 

But his hatred of Luke actually has more to do with, shall we say, shading.

Nobody call Wagner 'the best' MLB like they're calling Keuchly and Kiko.

 

Actually, more people would call Wagner one of the league's best MLBs than would Alonso.

 

I realize you don't know anything of what you're talking about, but you could at least try and fake it with Google or something :rolleyes:

That's why the announcers keep mentioning he always finish the play. He would run 15-20 yard to land on a pile that ended 5 seconds ago. I bet he didn't think I would notice that. Sneaky Luke. That's his new nickname, Sneaky Luke. Guys like Wagner are too athletically proud to do that. But not Luke.

 

I have to wonder if this nonsense has anything to do with the race of the said football player?

 

 

If you can't see that Luke is the best 43 MLB in the game, then you cannot be helped.

What team won anything with that much cap space. McCoy is a weapon all over the field. The dude catch deep passes and then line up run for 15. Don't you understand, the bills had a top 5 defense last year without Alonso. He did nothing for the bills but hide behind that DL.

 

I don't understand why people keep trying to turn this into a McCoy vs Alonso argument. 

 

This wasn't a trade where each team was trying to get the better player.  This trade was about the Eagles getting rid of a bad contract.  Picking up a quality player with two years left on a rookie contract was just a bonus. 

 

Can they replace his production with the 8-10 million they are saving?  What if they replace 90% of his production for 10% of the cost.  That is a lot of money left over to improve other areas.

 

What if the trade was McCoy for Alonso and Maclin or Alonso and Hardy?  Would people have a different opinion then?

Quick hint: Don't take him too seriously.  He has no idea what he's talking about and his evaluation of players is based more on, shall we say, what they look like than how well they play.

    • If they would have had the #5 pick then they could have had so many teams trying to trade up there for a QB. They'd be ahead of the Chargers and Dolphins who both need QB's. The Dolphins have 3 first round draft picks this year. That would have been such a good haul, potentially grabbing those picks had they won more games. They'd have to leapfrog several teams. Unfortunately at #7 both the chargers and the Dolphins don't need to move up. The only scenario i'd see is if they pick the QB's they need and the Dolphins pull the trigger on a OT to protect their QB, the Panthers would get the 18th and 26th, plus a lower round pick to move up to #7 if the draft board falls to where no OT was taken prior to the Panthers pick.      The thing is, that if the Panthers decide to stay with Cam, they need to protect his blind side and if the best OT is on the board, I don't think they would give up that pick for 2 first rounders. I wouldn't. Especially when it's the best tackle of the draft. I don't know.    IF they stay at the pick and Brown is available or Thomas...Take Thomas. 
    • Becton went 4th Ovr in Daniel jeremiahs last mock- I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he isn’t available in the third  
    • This has all been thoroughly debated examined and tested by people who are experts in the field. Noll is not one guy out on a limb. The bottom line is the consensus amongst respected experts is that sports stadiums do not provide the economic impact they claim to. https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/page1-econ/2017-05-01/the-economics-of-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ https://ritholtz.com/2017/07/economics-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ That article was written by a member of the Federal Reserve. Surely he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to money and economic impact. Here are a few quotes from that article I would particularly draw to your attention:  "When surveyed, 86 percent of economists agreed that “local and state governments in the U.S. should eliminate subsidies to professional sports franchises.” "In a 2017 poll, 83 percent of the economists surveyed agreed that “Providing state and local subsidies to build stadiums for professional sports teams is likely to cost the relevant taxpayers more than any local economic benefits that are generated.” It's not that stadiums don't bring in any money, or have any economic impact, no one is arguing that. But the reality is that the numbers show that impact is less than the cost of the subsidies provided, by large margins. This is why the vast majority of economists say they should be discontinued. Your math about tickets is irrelevant because all of that revenue goes into the private owners pockets. The point is that fewer games means fewer times people are coming to the area and having that impact you are talking about. That's why more games has more impact. Ticket prices and sales are irrelevant because we're talking about the impact on the economy, not actual ticket sales. It's not about how many tickets are bought at what prices, it's about how many times people stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, etc etc etc. And the people who measure these things and look at the data far more than you or I say it's not close, stadiums are a bad deal for taxpayers as an economic investment. Bottom line, if a cardiologist tells you you'd better stop eating fried foods or you're not likely to last another five years, do you do what the highly trained expert says, or do you sit there and argue with him about whether the burgers you cook on the grill should count or not?
