  1. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2014/12/31/claims-regarding-obamas-use-of-executive-orders-and-presidential-memoranda/ “That tally is almost entirely irrelevant to this dispute [over executive action] because executive orders are only one way a presidential administration can take action without congressional approval,” he said, noting for instance the use of presidential memoranda. In fact, many of Obama’s most controversial actions on immigration and gun rights also did not involve executive orders.
  2. Pick 2: non-ppr D Walker W Snead B Cooks S Diggs
  3. Han recognized who she was. He might have never met her....but he knew she was Luke's kid. I think so too. Cutting away from Han/Maz at the exact moment she asks him who Rey is and then going straight to the Luke lightsaber scene sure seems a pretty big whopping clue about who she is. I agree Han knew and that's why he asked her to join him and Chewie. For whatever reason (which we're bound to learn) Han couldn't tell Rey who she was but this was his way of trying to protect his niece. An understated act of heroism which was always his preferred way of operating. Really good point pack. You just made me realize that Maz suddenly wants to give up the lightsaber after all these years and ironically right after she asked Han who she was. Rey's acid trip after touching it was just icing on the cake.Plus there's the stuff from the trailers that got cut like the "Who are you?" "I've seen eyes like yours (paraphrasing)" and the let the force in stuff all from Maz. Maybe it was cut because Abrams thought it would give too much away too soon and too clearly about who Rey was. ETA - I'm pretty sure Maz also wouldn't wanna give Luke's lightsaber to just anyone who might have the force. It would have to be someone special and someone strongly connected to Luke. I don't think I've seen this mentioned (but I haven't read every page), but there are also Luke's lines from the 2nd trailer that were cut. Something like "the force is strong in my family. My father has it, I have it, my sister has it, and you have that power too". To me, that sounds like Luke talking to Rey. Not only is he telling her that she is strong with the force, but that she is his daughter. It just doesn't sound like those lines would have ever been made for the movie so he could talk to his niece.
  4. Seriously, and he was the last year of the monster guaranteed contracts. Dude is loaded and has done nothing. Why would it cause anyone to break into a cold sweat? The only way he gets that $18 million for year 2 is if he has a very productive year 1 and stays healthy. At that point he was worth the $13 in year 1. At this point I think as Eagle fans we should be happy if he ends up getting $31 million for 2 years. No cold sweat here.
  5. @marcsesslernfl: Feels like the Foles/Bradford trade is part of a three-team swap. We just don't know the third team yet.@mattlombardo97.5: Bill Polian on ESPN: "Keep an eye on Philadelphia, there is another shoe to drop. There is another shoe to drop" I'm not blowing out my hope candle until the first offensive snap of week 1 and Bradford is under center. Until then i wont believe it. I would love to believe all of that, but I just don't see how it makes any sense. If Bradford was moving to another team, it would have to happen now. He couldn't wait until the draft and hope it works out. If Bradford isn't moving, what does he do with Bradford, Sanchez, and MM? It is Bradford and Sanchez for 2015. Can't believe I just typed that.
  6. Well, that's one way to get people to stop talking about you being a racist.
  7. So Cobb goes 4/40. Rumor had Eagles at 9/yr with Maclin wanting 11/yr. Does Cobbs deal help them get it done or does it put big $ in Maclin's eyes knowing he is the top WR left?
  8. One thing that is really disappointing about this year is that I was hoping we would get a full season to watch Foles. He was really cut short this year just when the offensive line was starting to come together. That said, I can't believe some of the comments I have heard on national ESPN radio regarding the Eagles and our QB situation. It's as if Chip was counting on turning Sanchez's career around and now the Eagles have no idea where to turn. I heard Joe Theismann (I know) on one of the shows today and he lumped the Eagles in with teams that are unsettled at the QB position. Hello out there??? I put this together myself, so I might have something wrong, but you get the point. Eagles under Chip when Foles starts and finishes the game over the last 2 years (including the playoff game) = 13-4 Against teams that finished at or below .500 = 10-2 Losses @ Vikings in 2013 and @ SF in 2014. The Vikings loss was a bad one. SF is a 'good' bad team. Either way, both on the road. I think we all would take this kind of record moving forward. Against teams that finished over .500 = 3-2 Wins 2013 - @GB (no Rodgers and they were barely over .500 so this isn't as impressive as it sounds) 2013 - AZ (good home win against a good team) 2014 - @IND on Monday night (Foles leads game tying drive starting at 5:00 and game winning FG drive starting at 2:00) Losses 2013 - NO playoff game (Foles leaves field after TD drive to get the lead, never touches ball again) 2014 - @AZ (Foles leads FG drive to take the lead at 2:00. Then, after the defense blows it, he gets team to the AZ 16 after starting at his own 20 with 1:21 remaining) I really don't know if Foles is the answer or not. The above is just too small of a sample size. However, even in the 2 losses Foles had the team in position to win. I can't seem to figure out how anyone doesn't think that the Eagles have their QB for at least next year and that there is still great reason for optimism about the position. The Eagles have their starter. Fix the other stuff on the team. Draft a QB to groom as a backup.

  10. Yea. For all the whining, we actually got the parameters of what we wanted. There wasn't much to complain about here. Nothing they could do about HaHa unless you think they should have given up a 3rd rounder to move up two spots. Some people probably would want to do that. I can see the gripe but otherwise, I like who they got regardless of where we got them. On one hand yeah 3rds are valuable and can turn into solid players. On the other hand they turned that 3rd into Huff. Given who they turned it into, I'd much rather have Clinton-Dix right now. False analogies like this are what drive me crazy about people complaining about the draft. Sure, they could have used their 1st and 3rd to move up and get Clinton-Dix. Instead, they used their 1st to get a different 1st and an additional 3rd. They then flipped one of their 3rds into a 4th and a 5th. Your scenario = use 1st and 3rd and get Clinton-Dix Their scenario = Get Smith, Huff, Watkins, and Hart. So it wasn't Clinton-Dix vs Huff. You can disagree with the move, but at least be honest about what the decision was.
  11. I don't know anything about the guy, but I am on board with the pick. - we all wanted a playmaker on D - he is versatile - position fills a need - I would guess he is a smart football player since he played QB - who cares where he was projected. 2nd round was a few picks away. This isn't the old staff. You can argue some moves this offseason, but they have yet to show on the field we can't trust them. - we got him and a 3rd round pick in the 1st!!
  12. Try this one: http://www.seatoy.com/home.php Nobody better. Haven't fished with him in years, but you could drop this guy in the middle of a strange ocean blindfolded and he would put you on fish.
  13. Eagles Super Bowl wins last 20 years........ Yeah, guess which one I want to see more?
  14. This is all I needed to see. Do what you have to do and continue to build this thing the way Chip wants it built. That is what the Eagles are paying him for. Sink or swim, but make a decision and if you go down, go down doing it your way.
  15. I was happy to see him get a national interview this morning on Mike & Mike. Then they started the interview with a question about Vick and spent what seemed like half their time on him.
