Yeah but if they move him, they are going to take a HUGE cap hit. Unless they throw in a draft pick and negotiate for the new team to absorb some of the contract money.

Probably something along the lines of - that's unfortunate and part of the game.

out of 263 teams that started 2-7 we are the first and only team to make the playoffs. And I think it is a fair thing to say that our team might have been further along with a normal off-season, (NYG too in all honesty), and a few early losses may have been wins.

It's not the same. Steelers have the playoffs, so I get them resting some guys so they are healthy for a run at the SB.

I'm not down on the Eagles for resting their banged up players, but J Hurts wasn't banged up. Sudfeld was a significant drop-off in talent and effectiveness. Pederson pulled the rug out from underneath every other player on that team that fought for three quarters.

And if Sudfeld led them to a W people would be calling Pederson a genius today. Honestly I could care less about all this drama. We won, game over. On to Tampa.

Re: Week 17 NFC EAST Championship Game Day Thread

Pulling on Hurts was ... odd.

Eagles had 2 QB questions. Big one - do they fully commit to 2nd round rookie Jalen Hurts in 2021? Do they continue to carry FA Sudfeld as their QB3 on their active roster as they have for a few years now?

I think they Eagles saw enough to answer "yes" to question 1 - they are committing to Hurts. So why not get a last look at Sudfeld. Whose poor play makes his decision easy.

Theyve answered the 2 QB questions and secured the no. 6 overall pick .. a Jamaar Chse or D Smith or Sewell or Parsons etc
-------------

4th and goal decision - no problem with that. Hurts completes that and its brilliant.

I'm pretty sure if the Eagles were playing either the Cowboys or Giants last night, and it was Washington depending on the win, what the Eagles did would not have been a big deal or not widely discussed.

No it would be ďwhy was your starting QB for next year playing in bad conditions in a meaningless gameĒ. Itís easy to second guess or criticize any decision made when you arenít responsible for it.

Tampa will be without LB Devin White for the Wild Card game against Washington but the news sounds good for WR Mike Evans. MRI reveals no structural damage, per @JayGlazer
, and Evans seems on track to play Saturday night

^^ Devin White is cleared of covid protocol on Sunday .. game is Saturday. Hes the Bucs leading tackler, big blow.

He literally lifted Settle off of the ground. That said, Settle needs to be flailing his arms to get the attention of the refs.

Refs did everything they could to help the Giants last night. If the game had been called on the level, we win in a blow out. Blatant uncalled holding fouls by the Philly OL all night long. Not one single call. Not one. The first Eagles TD drive was a travesty. We stopped them three or four times, only to have bogus penalties called to extend the drive. The one pass interference call at the sideline on third and long was outright criminal. The only penalties called on Philly all night were 2 or 3 obvious off-sides, one obvious block in the back, and a holding on a punt play where the Eagle tackled our wide man right off the snap. Even on that punt play, since the obvious penalty occurred pre-kick, it could have, and probably should have, been called defensive holding, giving us a first down. The player is an eligible receiver until the ball is kicked. That is why you will often hear the ref say "after the kick" or "before the kick" when announcing penalties, because before the kick it is a defensive foul and after the kick it is a return team foul.

There was at least 2 missed holding calls on the Eagles o-line last night, the Settle one and there was another play where one of our linemen got literally tackled on an outside rollout and they didn't call it.

I'm not one to blame the refs when we take an L but the officiating was terrible last night.
