How did the Eagles fleece us when we didn't give up any picks??

There's always the chance the Eagles seriously botched this situation. Time will tell.

I would like to emphasize this piece in particular. The Eagles became known as a franchise that made all the smart decisions, getting rid of players before they got too old and hit their decline, drafting intelligently and supplementing with free agents, etc. etc. But just as Bruce Allen has come in and provided a major change from the Vinny era, so have the Eagles. They became known for all those smart decisions in the 2000s under Andy Reid and Joe Banner. Now they're under Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman. It's an entirely different administration and they deserve none of the benefit of the doubt that Banner and Reid earned all those years.

There's no reason to think they didn't just do something stupid.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

A couple of things.

1) Once teams knew that the Eagles possibly would release him, the trade value had to go down. You know he's going to want money, but why take a deal that another team had written that he had made comments about. On top of that why give any pick if you think he will be free. The only team that might have done that was Oakland, but they did it once already for Schaub.

2) I think way too much is made of the former coach issue but only time will make show, or it may never really be known.

3) I think the Skins played their cards real close, and other teams felt like there would be a market and DJax tour. Once he was released, I think the Skins acted swiftly and obviously definitively to make him know he was welcome and wanted here.

4) Kudos to BA especially for working through it without (so it appears) panicking.

That is awesome. Amazing how when I didnt think we had a chance I hated this guy. Now - different story. Those boneheaded plays going into the endzone still bother me, but Im pretty sure I hated him mostly for the fact that he was a great player on a division rival. Oh well hatred is an ugly emotion anyway. He was just misunderstood.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

I really liked the 2nd part of Louis Riddick's article regarding DJ, I hope JG/BA have a plan in place for how to handle working with him and all the possible disappointing scenarios. I know this wasn't a move expected this offseason and it might be a case of "oooh new shiny toy on the shelf let's play with it" but I hope they are prepared in case his attitude springs up again. Also gotta give them major props for the contract, talk about a great deal for us. I saw a report that said we were committing huge money, so I was thinking it would be in the 10/mil year range, but seriously, way to go FO on getting him to sign for a reasonable deal.
