    do you guys think that there is any chance that the Eagles trade for Chad Johnson or Roy Williams since they both seem to be availabel this offseason? I don't really think it will happen, but I would give anything for us to be able to get a really great #1 receiver.

    In my opinion the biggest problem with our offense is the WRs, if we got either of them and got Kenny Phillips in the draft I would think we would be one of the top teams in the NFC again. Especially with another offseason of rehab/training for McNabb. (Assuming he stays with the Eagles, which I also hope happens because I'm not a big fan of Kolb's)

      ahhhh the Lions give up one of their play makers and same with the Bungles, Carson to Chad, who knows what they have with Henry and his problems.

      Kenny would be amazing would it solve all our problems, no but it helps give a good future starter and depth.

      WR a play making speed guy is needed, the eagles can see that, they have westbrook but even he needs help, when he gets double covered or is having a off day. And they know they need help are the return position, but with the eagles you have no idea what the hell they are going to do. Hell we might end up with Campbell somehow.

        Carolina is also having similar problems with David Carr and Jake Delohmme
        Lions could for sure be a contender if Jon Kitna retires

        however there is a strong possibility that even if we want to rid our selves of Mcnabb that we will get stuck with him because of the amount of goof QBs in the draft
        Boller signed a 1 year extension. Looks like he'll get a chance to compete with Troy Smith for the starting job next year.

          I would say there is little chance that the Eagles will get either of those WR's because of the cost involved (high draft picks) and the money already invested in the WR core (Curtis was a big money FA, and Brown is on a long extension). It is possible that one of these guys is available, but don't you think the Redskins or many other teams would make that move before the Eagles would? I'd say so. Heck, I wouldn't be upset with a Roy or Chad on our team, but I just don't see it happening.

          That being said, Kenny Phillips is probably gone before the Eagles draft, unless they manage to trade up. If the Eagles went out and traded for a big time WR, that would cost a first rounder at least. Don't count on them getting either of these options.

            If LJ leaves I believe the eagles should go after John Carlson he is a stud i have seen him practice live and he was very impressive.

              I am 98% certain that LJ Smith will be on another NFL franchise in 2008. The Eagles tend to lock up their core guys before their contract year. LJ is also coming off injuries (as we know). I think he's a bit overrated by other teams, so the Eagles probably won't have the best offer for him. They also seem to really like Celek in their offense. McNabb went to him in some really key spots the last few weeks. I would be perfectly fine having Celek and Schobel next year as our TE's, but I do agree that another TE would be needed.

                Given the Eagles issues with depth and age at DB and at OT, they probably will spend their first round pick on a player in that area. Perhaps DE because I expect Howard and Kearse out the door.

                  I have seen a few mocks where the eagles get Calais Campbell do you think the eagles will take a shot on a project like him?

                    Campbell is a monster prospect with unreal skills. The Eagles have a potential hole at DE. I think that the team does an excellent job at being aggressive and going after the guys they want. If they like him best, they will get him if they can for a reasonable price. Past cases: McDougle, Andrews. Also traded Al Harris, which resulted in the Sheldon Brown pick.

                      I would love to see Campbell in Philly but i have to remind myself that the draft is still very far away and he could easily move back up draft boards.

                          Hasn't Calais Campbell had a bad senior season?

                          Even though he has loads of talent, he's not a safe pick.I'd rather see the eagles taking a DE in the 3rd round, so it could start up a rotation with Abiamiri, Juqua Thomas and this new guy. 2nd round I'd live either OT or DB, then in the 1st IMO we need a playmaker so someone like DeSean Jackson or even trade for a WR like CJ or Roy Williams. But if in the 1st round Kenny Philips is there, I'd love to take him also. Even Nic Harris if he comes out maybe we could trade down 5-10 picks and grab him.

                            There is no way the Eagles take an offensive playmaker in the first round. I think they're looking at the lines or maybe CB/safety. I think they like their current WR's, and I'm pretty sure they're comfortable with Schobel and Celek at TE next season. I guess they could take a guy like Carlson, but that is unlikely.

                              I agree that Campbell is a very risky potential pick, but the Eagles are pretty good at finding gems in the draft at DE. Cole and Thomas with later round or UDFA finds. Abriamiri looks like a solid run stuffer.

                                Again, I see OLine as the weakest position, with safety and CB depth also a need. The Eagles have generally played it safer with their first rounders under Reid/Banner/Heckert. That has led to minimal first round busts. Only Mitchell and McDougle busted since 1999, with McNabb, Simon, Sheppard, Andrews, Patterson, and Bunkley at least solid for a period of time.
