    All I know is the draft is a huge crap shoot and the Eagles aren't that good at it. I can't get all aggravated about Hurts. No reason to believe they would have made a more useful pick.
    If you want to make the point that Howie and CO blow at drafting then yes I agree with you there. He has a history of terrible drafting so no idicaton that we would have picked a useful player with that 2nd rounder and not another bum. It is scary that this franchise's core is pretty much toast and we don't have young talent to replace them, spare a few players. They went for it after the SB to try and win another one but now we are fucked. No real stud young players on the OLine, Dline, Secondary, LB, etc. As far as stud players you can rely on under 26 you have Sanders, Goedert, Hargraves (27) let's throw Reagor in there, Barnett (maybe) ... Maddox, LeBlanc and K Wallace are wildcards. That is very thin as a team going forward when you compare it to other teams who have drafted well.

    there was so much talent in this draft. They could have moved up and got a player, helped the Oline, Dline, WR, CB, S LB everywhere. No need for a project that sat on the fucking sidelines week 1 when we were down starters!

    No one wanted JJAW but Howie. Reminder he is smarter than everyone! Names drafted after JJAW just to name 2 DK Metcalf, Terry McLaurin.

    Also, didn't this idiot spend a 2nd on a possible boom or bust the great Sidney Jones and how did that work out.

    Can't pay a franchise QB and burn 2nd round picks on pet projects. No fucking way anyone believes Hurts is a franchise QB. They took him for gimmick and misdirection plays so he could figure out his next Philly Special!

    Not when you just paid your QB $35M per year you build around our franchise QB. Otherwise, see my above post for an explanation.

    Not confusing at all. They could be wrong but they think he can be an elite NFL quarterback. That's a valuable commodity.

    Did you think Mahones or Jackson where franchise QB’s. Maybe the concept of a traditional franchise QB is outdated.
    1st off Mahomes is once in a lifetime period. 2nd, one year of Jackson doesn't prove much but he was great in college. Hurts was good in college but please do not put him in the same sentence as Mahomes or even Jackson. Everyone had Hurts going round 3 or 4. If bet my left nut he isn't a franchise QB

    Edit to add: 4 QB's went before him in the 1st round only Burrow won the Heisman so not sure why Phillyphilz thinks that makes a difference. If he was the answer, he would have been chosen to lead a franchise not run a gimmick package

    why not? Heismann winner. Way better college numbers than Wentz in the toughest college conference... said the same about Lamar

    just as confusing, why was Hurts drafted? Not like we needed talent to compete this year I mean we have the best roster in the league we can afford to blow a 2nd round pick on a gimmick / gadget player who isn't even active week 1

    Wentz can't hit receivers.

    He is Sheldon Gibson.
