Nnamdi is a little poor against the run, but I think this signing does make the Eagles a SB favorite. Really going to miss him with the Raiders, nobody is going to throw to that side of the field, but you guys also have Samuel, so where are they gonna throw?
Probably to the TE/RB in the middle of the field that our LB's can't cover and safeties can't tackle. Or they say screw it and just run it all day long.
Carlos mothereffin Emmons. We need a good sam who can cover TEs.
This team ain't winning squat yet. We're like the Washington Caps of the NFL, they have a ton of big names and skills, but games are won in the trenches. Who goes in the trenches? Offensive Line, Defensive line, power running backs, and the linebacking core. We have none of them right now (maybe we do have the D-Line but it could use a little more help inside.)

Is Kafka able to throw a Football? Never see him throwing one ball.
The Nnamdi signing is nice, but this team is so weak up the middle on defense, they will be eaten alive by good rushing and short pass teams. What is the projected LB corp? Do they even have a ROLB? And they still haven't upgraded the DTs or safeties. Can Dixon do what he did last year? Can they count on rookies and second year players all year?
Eagles will be making a trade soon to free up some money and it will be a CB that is traded and not any of the two they just picked up...........
Keep in mind the Eagles had cap credits from last season, so they had more money than most think.
And im saying that Asante maybe traded cause he is being payed BIG BUCKS................
I think the general consensus is that Asante will at least be attempted to be moved. I doubt he would play the nickel for the amount of cash he's getting. Hopefully the Birds can work some more of the magic they've been producing this offseason and flip him for something good.
