I wonder how Marc Bulger's career would've gone if he'd played in Philly his whole career instead of STL. I don't think this would be a great move for the Rams but it would be better than sinking a bunch of money into Sam Bradford.
Marc Bulger without Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce, Orlando Pace, and Marshall Faulk/Steven Jackson? His career would have been more of a disaster than it already has been.
I would see it as a good move, especially if they are sold on not taking a QB at #1. McNabb is is a top 10 QB, a bit underrated being that Brady, Manning, Big Ben, Brees, and Rivers are currently in the upper echelon of QB's. The Eagles can move on and insert Kolb into the lineup, and the Rams would get a good stop-gap for a few years till they can groom a QB for the future (whether they draft on this year or next, or get a young player like a Josh Johnson or something).
so you think they wont have to give up their 2nd round pick?
i dont think so. not at the point right before the draft, when teams value them a lot more than they do before a season starts. i could see a third and a fifth. or a player like Carriker that isnt having a great career so far?
I'm on my phone so I'll keep it brief and I'll elaborate on why I like it later when I'm able to use a CPU, but I think a lot of you are under the impression the Eagles want to give McNabb away, they aren't in any sort of rush to get McNabb off of their hands, Andy actually wants to keep Donovan. If McNabb is traded there will be significant compensation, like their 2nd and a 5th or a 3rd and a combination of players likely including someone like Chris Long.
The Eagles know they can with McNabb and probably make the playoffs, he won't come cheap.
They could still draft a QB say in the 2nd round and let him sit behind McNabb and nab Suh or Berry in the first
This is proven franchise QB we are talking about here, he will get more then a 3rd round pick, the Eagles are by no means desperate to trade him. However, if the right offer comes or they get their asking price I don’t doubt they pull the trigger. But for only a 3rd round pick?? If they do that I will be pissed.
They should trade for Vick instead. Who is McNabb going to throw to? I'm sure he will be really happy if this happens.
You think McNabb would rather play for the St. Louis Rams who had the worst record in the league, then a team he has been playing for his whole career who are one of the teams we most frequently see in the playoffs? He has a great connection with Reid to, despite all the crazy Philly fans, McNabb wants to stay. He doesn’t let these crazy fans get to him. If he gets traded to the Rams the chances of him winning a ring in his career diminish significantly considering the Eagles can definitely contend.
