I don’t know about you, but I’m already tired of OTA’s. It’s way too much hoopla over what is ultimately not football. It’s football lite-lite. And we make a big deal out of how guys look running around in shorts with zero contact taking place. “Player X is looking great in OTA’s!” is something I will never say, nor care about if someone else says it. Would I prefer players look good rather than bad, sure. But tbh I really don’t give AF. Wake me up when they put pads on. Is that a fair thing to say? I can’t hear anyone so I’m guessing no one is reading. I’m just going to assume you would have said yes. With that positive affirmation in mind, let’s rock some news and notes — Eagles style. *That was so lame. Luckily, no one is reading this.*
If you only read one Eagles related thing today, which is obviously ridiculous but go with me, make it this piece on Jordan Matthews from my buddy BLG. It’s so good. Also, it backs up everything I’ve thought (and said) about JMatt. Definitely worth your time.
Speaking of Matthews, here’s an idea for what the Eagles could do with the receiver, courtesy of Jack “Don’t Call Me John” Fritz. Gotta say, I like where
John’s Fritzy’s head is at here. I find myself agreeing with everything he’s saying. Which kind of worries me. Let’s move on.
Are you a fan of chats? Me too. Everyone loves a good chat. And when I think of chats, I think of Jimmy Kempski. Enjoy.
Ben Natan projects the best offensive players (at each position) in the NFC East Offense. It will probably annoy you – aka it’s full of Cowboys. But it’s a good read and there’s quite a bit of Eagles love in there as well.
One area where the Eagles should be strong offensively is along the o-line. They have some high-end talent mixed with a ton of quality depth. I’m not sure where Chance Warmack fits in that equation, but he’s excited to play for his mentor. That can’t hurt, right?
A group of NFL executives graded each team’s offseason and gave the Eagles a B-minus (ESPN Insider). I’d probably give them a B-plus. In case you were wondering.
Lastly, if you ever own a professional sports franchise, don’t use the Lions as the template for how to treat your players – especially the star players.
Alright, we’ve reached that special time; the time where I have nothing left to say and am going to mail the rest of this bitch in — aka Twitter Time:
Kaepernick is better than the QBs on the Jets, Browns, Texans, Jaguars, Broncos, Bears, Eagles, Rams, 49ers.

This f*cking guy.
I don’t know whether Carson Wentz will be everything Eagles envisioned. I do know that w/even decent receivers, rookie numbers woulda been 💥

Also, if you don’t think Lane Johnson’s suspension affected Wentz or the Eagles’ season, you REALLY don’t know what you’re talking about…
