*Official 2015 Philadelphia Eagles* - Winning when it doesnt count

Recommended Posts

Is all this QB upheaval and what seems like an over fondness for aging veterans reminding anyone else of Ray Rhodes?

JK mostly, but the thought did occur to me.

It's almost 8 o'clock at night. Has Chip Kelly tried to sign or release you today? If so, please contact @PhillyDNSports.

A team with even an above average QB will always be appealing and Luck is much more than that. Understandable on Gore's part if that's the way it goes.

Are agents leaking all these deals w/ details as kind of a "Last Call!" in case anyone else is interested?

I would bet you have a little bit of everything. Some players may actually regret a deal after signing it and with this new tampering period you're giving the player that option. Or you just have a d-bag like Rosenhouse who wants a little extra money from an overzealous Chip.

Didn't a couple people do something like this last year?

Who was that Saints center that did that to us a few year back and ended up getting hurt??

Justin Forsett, anyone?

Seeing what we gave up money wise for Gore a guy like Murray can't be far away. But who knows...

I'm thinking now way this happens, but Eagles could turn around and back out of the McCoy deal.

I was kind of looking forward to seeing Gore in this offense, but I'm not upset about this one. You can find competent NFL RB's at your local TGI Friday's.

I agree with your first sentence but, LOL What? The Eagles have a pretty clear direction. Gore is at the end of his career so yes Indy is the better choice if he is after a Superbowl. Better he change his mind now than regretting it. All Chip wants is a downhill runner that won't give up negative yards. The good news is there are plenty other backs. Personally I thought we overpaid for Gore so all I can really say is thank you Gore.

Really? Seems like they're taking cap $$ and putting in on the defensive side, to hope scheme can make up the difference on the offensive side.

they probably overpaid maxwell, and they re-signed graham while losing cole --- what else have they done?

Doubt it but not re-signing Maclin may have had a hand in it. If as it stood you knew the receiver core was Mathews, Cooper and Huff wouldn't you be like "WTF!?"

If Gore backs out he's signing with Indy and they won't grab Murray.

At this point I hope the Eagles aren't leaving it up to Gore and have already set their sights elsewhere. Wish you luck Frank. I want no part of him if he decides to stay now.

Don't just assume #Jaguars are where DeMarco Murray lands. The #Colts have been looking for a centerpiece back, too. He should have options. Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) March 10, 2015

What if Gore back out, Chip signs Spiller or another RB and then the Colts sign Murray?

Rather have Spiller than Gore.

The offense on paper looks to be a mess.wr core is avg at best and no idea who the qb could be. Could be a rookie. Sproles is ok but what other legitimate proven playmaker on offense? If I was a vet looking for a place to win now, colts are in a much better spot.

With the offseason and draft now complete, I totally agree. The Eagles offense is a mess. Maybe they can fix that next offseason.

@EliotShorrParks: Cross Davon House off #Eagles watch list, even though they never showed interest, which is surprising.

@EliotShorrParks: House gets $6.5 per year for 4 years from Jags, according to multiple reports. Thats a good deal for both sides.

Frank Gore told people he 'wasn't comfortable' with Eagles prior to backing out of deal with team

Less than a full day after agreeing to sign with the Eagles during the league's legal tampering period, running back Frank Gore reconsidered and pulled out of his deal with the team Monday.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, it wasn't just about the money for the veteran running back who reportedly is strongly considering signing with the Indianapolis Colts when the league year officially opens Tuesday at 4 pm.

"He was telling people, I am going to the Eagles," Schefter said Tuesday during an appearance on ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike In The Morning. "I have a deal in place."

However, after thinking about his decision, Schefter says that Gore started to have second thoughts sometime Monday.

"Yesterday morning, I got a phone call saying 'you need to track Gore, he's getting cold feet here.'" Schefter explained. "Now, the Eagles are onto other running backs. The Colts are onto Frank Gore as they were on Saturday, when they were talking about numbers but not exchanging offers. The Colts at that time had big money on the table. The Eagles came along and said we have even more big money on the table.

"On Sunday night [Gore] called some people and said 'I'm not feeling this' I should feel happy, I should feel excited right now and I'm not feeling it.'" According to Schefter.

"A lot of people when you make a decision you listen to your gut and he obviously wasn't feeling it. So, now Frank Gore is back on the market and a lot of guys are back on the market."

For Gore, 31, this is likely the final chance for the running back who rushed for 1,106 yards and four touchdowns last season to cash in via free agency.

The deal that the Eagles and Gore agreed to over the weekend was reported to be a three-year contract with $7.5 million in guarantees. While contracts cannot become official until free agency opens Tuesday afternoon it appears that the allure of playing in the AFC South and with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was too alluring for Gore to pass up.

Sounds like he was set on the Colts then we offered more money and he came here before deciding back on Indy.

I'm personally hoping for the Eagles to sign either or both of Spiller and Crabtree. Maybe it's because I have both on my dynasty team, but all kidding aside. Spiller can do some of what McCoy did and he's got lots of tread left. Crabtree I think was in the same draft as Maclin and the #6 overall player. he hasn't been a star, but no one has looked great in SF with Smith and Kaep the past few years. He could help the Eagles and is only 27.

Of course it is, if being compensated well, there's 0 reason for both of them not to go to Indy. Philly is a complete toss up right now, and many transactions to come. Indy is set, kind of a no brainer IMO.

Nope. Plus he seems like the type that would goto a team on the brink and hold them up for a ton of cash to get them over the hump. I'd say Indy but I don't know of they have the cap space.
