three 1st + CMC + Burns + Brown?

 

LOL, that's just as absurd as the people throwing out proposals of 2 first rounders and Teddy

You can watch it on You Tube.

I'm at work, planning to watch it later for sure but a brief synopsis in the meantime would be nice...

I'll trade the 8 and CMC...anything further, outside of a day 3 pick, and I'm looking elsewhere.

 

Remember DW ain't on a rookie deal any longer.

what was the context?

The context was about how some people criticized him for making too many changes too quickly as an owner and that others criticized him for not doing enough like "getting rid of Rivera" sooner.

He said he would do three 1st + CMC + Burns.   I was just taking it to the next step and what point he would say no.

Scott Fowler asked him a question about having "his guys" in charge now.

Tepper mentioned that he got some criticism for his moves early on citing that some people "said I got rid of Rivera too early...moved on from Rivera too early".

He did acknowledge that the team is now run by people he chose rather than people he inherited. As such, there's no one else to blame if things go wrong.

You are surmising intent when it isn't known. If I was to do similar, I could say only Chinn was worthy of contacting and that isn't what he said at all. 

Don't read the tea leaves too much. They just make tea.

That's not what I'm doing.  He was asked if he spoke with any players and he said Chinn had contacted him.  He wasn't explicitly asked about Chinn the way he was asked specifically about CMC and TB. Then he mentions CMC and then omits TB from that, insinuating that TB isn't a team leader or core player (which he isn't).

That combined with "It's starts with a quarterback" and also "A QB needs to be able to win the game when the game is on the line in the 4th quarter."  Serves as more then enough evidence to make what I said more then tea leaves.

Combine that with Tepper's statements and I think you're just refusing to hear the truth.

Yeah but he didn't mention Brian Burns. Does that mean he is going to get traded? How about Shaq Thompson? DJ Moore?

Like I said, don't read into it too much. It could be something but it could just as easily be nothing. The things that made me think we are moving on is precisely what you are talking about with the elite QB attributes. I don't know if those were directed at Teddy intentionally but I do know that he doesn't have those qualities.

Jonathan Jones said it would take at least McCaffrey and Brian Burns plus picks to make that trade.

    • I honestly wouldn't take it to mean much.
    • Here's Florio's summary of the full article... The Eagles reportedly treated former coach Doug Pederson like “a baby,” according to unnamed sources who claim that Pederson was beaten down by relentless second guessing. In 2019, for example, after a Thursday night win at Green Bay, Pederson was grilled by owner Jeffrey Lurie (an analytics aficionado) over the fact that Pederson hadn’t called more passes. “[Pederson] was ridiculed and criticized for every decision,” an unnamed source told TheAthletic.com. “If you won by three, it wasn’t enough. If you lost on a last-second field goal, you’re the worst coach in history.” Said another unnamed source, “The fact that Doug had the success he did with all the poo going on in the building, sometimes I look at our Super Bowl rings, and I’m like, ‘Holy cow, I don’t know how we did it.'” Per the report, the undermining of Pederson began in only his second season, which ended with a Super Bowl victory. Prior to the start of the 2017 campaign, word spread through the organization of a three-hour meeting between Lurie and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Multiple unnamed sources told TheAthletic.com that “there was a feeling around the team that Lurie was vetting an in-house replacement for Pederson in the event the Eagles got off to a slow start.” The article points to tensions between football and analytics, a dynamic hardly unique to the Eagles. One unnamed source described the team’s analytics department to TheAthletic.com as a “clandestine, Black Ops department that doesn’t answer to anybody except the owner.” That’s how it currently works in plenty of NFL front offices. And it’s why so many coaches have embraced analytics. If they don’t, the analytics employees tell ownership that, if the coach had done what the analytics called for, the team would have won. Complicating matters in Philly is that owner Jeffrey Lurie is very involved in the draft preparations, and he always has been. But that’s his right, as the owner of the team, to be as involved or uninvolved as he wants. With most if not all owners finding a way to state preferences when it comes to huge decisions, it’s better if those owners actually have put in the work. In Philadephia, enough work was put in to win a Super Bowl. That’s the good news. The bad news is that things have collapsed quickly. Chances are that the failures in Philadelphia bear plenty of fingerprints.
