So psyched I wanted the Eagles to draft him in 06, but he was gone. I think he's gonna be a beast in this defense. Damn I hope so.

How many WLB does that give the Eagles now 3? And still not one SLB.

He is going to be looking for a contract now. Idk, from Lions fans he overruns a lot of plays and only played good when he had a big body in front of him to take up the linemen.

He has his moments. But he got injured... lost his spot to a rookie... and that was on the worst D in the NFL for the past 3 years. He's not a defense changer. He's been slipping the past year or two.

Does this mean Bunkley is the only 2006 FSU 1st round defender to not be traded this offseason? Haha wow. I am excited about the move, he could be very good in the right system with talent around him.

I like the move, not love it, getting Sims after only giving up a 5th rounder is a move you can't go wrong with, but I don't know If Sims will be the player that some of you are expecting. I think with the D-line in front of him he can be better than he was in Detroit, but I don't expect a monster season out of him. This pretty much wipes out the possibility of the Eagles drafting any WILL in this draft, it'll either be a SLB or MLB if the team plans on sliding Bradley over, which I doubt.

I wouldn't mind grabbing a Donald Butler or AJ Edds in the 3rd-4th round to play SLB. Our LB corps could be quite a bit improved.

I'd like Edds, but unless you are talking about sliding Bradley out to SLB, I don't think Butler would be a good fit at SLB. He isn't stout at the POS and does take on or shed blockers well, which is what we need out of our SLB. Once I saw we got Sims, my thought process took me to this.

If we drafted Brandon Spikes in the late third or early 4th to be the SLB, I would be all for it. He has questions about being a 3 down LB, but we haven't had a 3 down SLB as long as I can remember, and SLBs are the first one off in nickel and dime packages anyway. Spikes has everything you want in terms of his ability against the run and as a pass rusher, which is how the Eagles use their SLBs the most. I think he would be a great pick depending on when he would be picked, and who else is available.

True, I guess my reasoning for Butler is I really want someone to match up against TEs (especially in this division) in coverage, but Ernie Sims can probably be that guy.

The problem is, our Safeties, SLB, or CBs are usually the ones that match up against our opponents TEs. I wish we would see our WLBs or even Bradley in coverage (if he has his range) more. Sims can cover the TE's but keep in mind he is short, and even if he is ticking on the TE like glue, Witten, Boss and Cooley are almost a half foot taller than him and can still make those tough catches.

nooo, but you can say youth movement. Oldest players are now Akers and Parker.

Also looking at Sims stats, Sniper will be happy to bring back the term pile jumper.

The Ernie Sims deal has potential, he is only 25 and he still oozes potential, especially in an agressive scheme like the Eagles. Ernie Sims is super fast, super athletic and is a huge hitter but at this point he is kind of like the Roy Williams of linebackers, his form tackling is iffy, he isn't good in run support, he overruns plays, he gets washed out and he can't get through the trash in the front 7.


Crazy athlete, tons of potential but the Eagles really have some work to do. One thing that I did like that I read was that one of his former coaches (or maybe it was Millen) said that when he first got into the NFL he would give his all so much that he would hit the hardest he could until he would black out. I can't really express how much of a freak he is, his workout numbers would be really good for a WR, but he is a 230 pound linebacker. Hopefully he gets into the habit of smashing Felix Jones. I can't wait to see Ernie Sims lay the lumber, he can really hit.

But the move is so low risk, a 5th round pick for a 25 year old former 9th overall pick? Done deal. He is better than anything Andy Reid was likely to find in the fifth and at the very least the Eagles just got a hellacious special teams player.

Can you say championship?!
You all know how I feel about McNabb and Kolb so I'm just going to leave that one alone. But, today LeSean McCoy said Kevin Kolb was the next big thing. I like hearing encouraging things from his teammates who also say he is a natural leader. Shawn Andrews is not a loss, he was a waste of space. LeSean McCoy was better than Westy who was always nicked up and Witherspoon is replaced by Stewart Bradley/Akeem Jordan/ Ernie Sims. The losses haven't been huge aside from Sheldon Brown but if the Eagles can get Joe Haden or Devin McCourty it won't be as big of a loss.

Maybe its just me, but you never seem satisfied with ANY move the Eagles make. Do you spend a lot of your time calling into the radio?

He played in Detroit. Look at the guys he played behind. Lets at least give him a chance in the Eagles system before we write him off. He definitely did not fit Schwartz's cover 2 scheme.

And to the people that say "ZOMGZ NOES SLB!!!1", SLB in this defense has changed. Its not what it was with JJ. SLB is not a guy who can cover well and playing the run is his best asset. We dont need a guy thats the size of a mack truck and runs like a gazelle if he cant cover.

Not to mention, we rotate our LBs a ridiculous amount. Ernie Sims > any 5th round LB we would have taken.

Crazy athlete, tons of potential but the Eagles really have some work to do. One thing that I did like that I read was that one of his former coaches (or maybe it was Millen) said that when he first got into the NFL he would give his all so much that he would hit the hardest he could until he would black out. I can't really express how much of a freak he is, his workout numbers would be really good for a WR, but he is a 230 pound linebacker. Hopefully he gets into the habit of smashing Felix Jones. I can't wait to see Ernie Sims lay the lumber, he can really hit.

But the move is so low risk, a 5th round pick for a 25 year old former 9th overall pick? Done deal. He is better than anything Andy Reid was likely to find in the fifth and at the very least the Eagles just got a hellacious special teams player.
That's why I like the deal. No we aren't getting the value that the Jets got for Holmes, but there is very little risk here for the Eagles, and the potential rewards are great.

I copywrited that word, you didn't ask permission... ;).
