Weigmann is still a chef really, when you think about it.

Once you don that crayon-red and urine-yellow, you're tainted for life ... unless you win a Super Bowl like Neil Smith


We shouldda kept Chris Myers ...

I think you have your "facts" wrong here, Rev. They like Booker so much he barely touched the ball last season. Come on, you know that. We paid Buck more than they were willing to, that's the beginning, middle, and end of the story. The Eagles draw lines in the sand and don't cross them.

I'm not particularly worried about Buckhalter. He'll be part of a rotation and at best will probably get the 3rd most touches behind Moreno and Hillis.

The Eagles offered Buckhalter zero dollars. So yes, we paid more than they were willing to.

RB stable when they let Buck go:

Westbrook getting older and more injury prone
Lorenzo Booker

Also, they gave up more for Booker than they had to acquire Buck.

Now here's an important part of that organization that you're flat out missing:

The Eagles, as you well know, avoid playing players new to the system as much as possible.
