With a poor draft class there will be no shortage of suitors willing to give up picks for him. Eagles are up against it salary cap wise so they have no choice really but to move him on.

but can the Eagles trust Wentz to stay healthy and is Foles actually a better fit to there scheme.

the other issue is what kind of money would a QB needy team give up for a 30 year old who can only survive in the Reid system,if Keenum can get paid last year would $50m be a bottom line.

Defeat with honour. A good defence of the title in the end. Playing 5 high intensity games in 5 weeks caught up with us and the injuries tonight showed it. Plus New Orleans are a very good all round team.

Come on Andy Reid.
nearly forgot,why did the Eagles even snap the ball.they could have took the 2 minute warning and still controlled the clock and maybe get the winning score.

Presumably we liked the alignment and went for it. 49 times out of 50 Jeffrey comes down with the ball and it's all good.

Foles can buy his way to free agency for $2m. So unless it's a tag and trade, which I don't see us doing, it won't be a trade unless he can't get more money than his current contract but someone's happy with it for 1 year or something weird like that. Give him a line and some receivers and he'll do his thing for you like he did for us. Legend.

It will be Wentz long-term. He has more strings to his bow and can do more with less. There were several times yesterday where the pass rush got overly aggressive and a healthy Wentz would have made them pay with his legs either extending the play or running.

With the Vikings not in the playoffs, it was nice to watch the games from a neutral perspective as I have no preference no who wins any of the games.

I was impressed with the Saints. Went 14-0 down, never panicked and even got creative with the fake punt to get a first down and get things moving.

The Saints showed balls that I have not seen from the Vikings since Zimmer took over, I get that he is a defensive coach but sometimes you need to do something to get back into a game - another great example was when it was 4 and 1 at the Eagles 5. It was only the first quarter still - a more conservative team would have kicked the field goal put 3 points up and took the attitude that there's plenty of time left - the Saints went for it and put up 7 instead.

No guts no glory.

well it looks like Sean Payton was rocking the barstool "goodell clown face" t-shirt today at his end of season presser.

seems the NFL also didn't come out last Monday(or since) and comment on the blown call as they wheren't happy with Payton coming out after the game and talking about his conversation with Riveron.
