I think it's highly unlikely that a team with this many needs, a new coach, a new scheme (possibly on both sides of the ball), a non-committment at QB, high priced aging contracts, etc. would look to plan for next year by getting rid of our best pieces/picks this draft. We aren't the Rams. Ownership expects to win now.
I'm not saying the trade is bogus, I'm saying the idea of it being realistic is, IMO. Of course, i could be wrong.
Get Well Soon Romo
Thoughts on Matt Flynn?
Look at what the Falcons gave up for Julio and what the Redskins gave for RG3. The Cowboys gave their second rounder last year IIRC to move up like 2 or 3 spots. No matter how good or bad the draft is, picks are still highly valued.
Also like I said yesterday holes can easily be hidden if you have a game changing type play maker, like AP last year. We have that in Shady, all we needa do is fix up that o-line and use that weapon effectively which I think Chip can do.
So for example a possible trade can be, our 4th pick for say the 10th pick and a first next year. So we pick 10th this year and have 2 firsts next year and still keep all our current picks this year.
Then next year we'll have our own first and the first we get from the team we traded with. So if we want whatever stud there is and the team with a top 3 pick is willing to trade back we have the best possible ammunition to doing so. It's the type of trades the Patriots make and since Chip hangs out with Belicheck a lot, he could've learned this from him for all we know.
So apparently the Jets want to move Revis this offseason, with that said assuming the Eagles decide to part ways with Vick would....
1. you do a straight up Vick for Revis trade, if not why?
2. you trust Revis coming off a knee injury?
3. the Jets even consider this?
Just curious to see what you all would think. I'd be willing to go for it if we have decided we are done with Vick.
Flynn wouldn't work because we have Foles now....just silly
And I don't know why the jets would want to ride of Revis that's just silly. And if they do I would trade Vick for Revis in a heart beat. Goodness
** edit seeing reports now....go get Revis. Revis + Aso

Imagine losing Nnamdi's contract next year for Revis lol. That would be awesome.
But I'd do it this year,
Maclin, Nate Allen and a mid round pick.
I'd include DeRoCro to but he's a FA and I wanna have him opposite of Revis.
i dunno man I would kind of rather have Aso and Revis personally esp if Aso is willing to restructure. I still feel Aso didnt fall off that cliff.... i think he was being a selfish diva and threw in the towel
Anyone else realize that Shawne Merriman is a Free-Agent this offseason??? If the Eagles are moving from a 4-3 to a 3-4 he may be worth serious consideration. He flourishes in a 3-4, that's what he played in Maryland and San Diego. He would be a great OLB in the Eagles new 3-4 system!!!
Merriman is finished.
