Eight NFL teams that will take a step back in 2015

NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles

Who is the most intriguing team in free agency?: Philadelphia.

The Eagles now have at least $48 million in cap space available after releasing a slew of veterans and reaching an agreement to trading running back LeSean McCoy to Buffalo. These moves give head coach Chip Kelly ample room to continue revamping his roster.The NFC East is always highly competitive, and it’s always a gamble to project what will happen. The Dallas Cowboys look like potential Super Bowl contenders this upcoming year, and the New York Giants are almost certain to bounce back after a poor showing in 2014.Washington is…well, it’s going to stay in the cellar.

That leaves Philadelphia.

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has been like a mad scientist this offseason as he tinkers and toys with his roster, hoping to find just the right mixture to implement his grand plan.

He let Jeremy Maclin, the team’s leading receiver last year, jump ship to Kansas City. He jettisoned LeSean McCoy to Buffalo, getting linebacker Kiko Alonso in return. Kelly also let veteran pass-rusher Trent Cole go for salary-cap reasons, but it’s hard to imagine the team will replace his steady production on the edge.

He played quarterback carousel, trading Nick Foles for Sam Bradford, re-signing Mark Sanchez and then bringing in Tim Tebow, just to make it more interesting. Speaking of Tebow, Kelly might have designs onturning him into a two-point machine instead of relying on a kicker to convert extra points.

There are a lot of moving parts within Kelly’s machinations.

This grand experiment will either propel Philly into greatness or it will fail miserably.

We’re betting on the latter.

    What I love is watching, year after year, how absolutely backward conventional wisdom proves to be.

      Sage: So much for the so called “EXPERTS” who like to predict the opposite of what is “REALLY” going to happen and you are right, of course. 🙂

  2. Sage says:

    Can anyone give any particulars as to why “the Wells report” is so bad?

    All I can gather from the headlines is that Brady told Kraft he didn’t do anything wrong, and Kraft believes Brady. Therefore the Wells report is bad?

    I’ve heard people are troubled by the penalty based on the standard of “more likely than not.” Yet that is the same standard which decides every civil suit in America.

      Because it completely glossed over the environmental factors which seem to have played the largest part. It ignored that there were several of the Colt’s balls that were not regulation either. It placed no real blame on the officials who didn’t follow proper procedure and had improperly calibrated pressure gauges. It relied heavily upon assumptions and hearsay and seems that Ted Wells was especially unhappy that Tom Brady wouldn’t let him dig around through his smart phone for a second time without Tom or lawyers present.

      Roger Goodell is a terrible NFL commissioner, more wrong than right in his decision making. It is no surprise that he would have the incompetent and biased Ted Wells write up a ridiculous “investigation” that throws out any evidence supporting Brady or the Patriots and magnifies speculation. In an actual court of law the whole report would be thrown in the trash can and the judge would be asking for Wells to be disbarred.

      FIRE GOODELL

    Kraft elected to take the punishment and not appeal.

    Brady through through the NFLPA is going through with the appeal.

    And if you think for a minute that Brady is telling his side of the story truthfully go on that “Deflate Diet” it work without you even knowing it!

    The reason the Wells report is so bad is because the New England Patriots got caught cheating (again).

    I think it is sad that the NFL did not take away the Patriots Super Bowl win last year.

    I believe I heard that the Little league team from Chicago had their Little league trophy taken away because one or two of the children did not live in the part of the city the team represented.

    We are tougher on little children then grown men.

    • Infidel says:

      Maybe you should actually read the report rather than just read a headline and make your assumptions.

      Currently you are exactly like Ted Wells. No facts, just assumptions. Would you let someone you don’t know dig around through all your private information on your smart phone without you there or your lawyers? Who knows what kind of pervert Ted Wells could be. Wells’s conclusion is almost entirely based on Brady not letting him go looking for nude pics of Giselle on his phone.
