Some thoughts about the draft
Under Reid, the Eagles have used their first round pick on offense one
year and defense the next, except the 2002 draft where they acted
completely out of the box. They never have drafted any player who had
any kind of criminal past, so that means no winston justice or gabe
watson. So while I think they will use their first round pick on the
offensive side, I see them trading down because there are no tackles
who are worth the 14th pick. They have to draft a OT in one of the
first 2 rounds. Tra and Runyon are not going to be around much longer
and Herremans's has a limited upside. I don't see him as having the
speed or arm length to be a good left tackle, same with andrews. If
they stay where they are I see them drafting chad jackson. If they
trade down I think they will take marcus Mcneil. in the second round
nick mangold or maurice stovall look like guys they would pick.

... But given his track record of having built the cornerstones of this franchise with great first round selections, picks that were mostly in the mid 20s to early 30s, it's more reasonable to think he's not very happy about having lost such an important draft pick. ... you really have failed to make a case to support your position other than to cite Marino's opinion and calling mine asinine. ... But to rephrase, you're making the argument that BB knew in advance that losing one of the highest valued picks in the entire draft, dolling out half a million out of his own pocket, having the team doll out a quarter million dollars in fines, disgracing himself, his team and the franchise in the national media, embarrassing his highly respected owner in the national spotlight, calling into question the past achievements of this dynasty were all worth the unstated advantages of filming the Jets, a team he and his team happened to blow-out followed by another blow-out of a team most considered equal or superior the Pats prior to the game without the benefits in both blow-outs of any advantages gained from signal stealing or video taping?! ...
