I do think we need to relax a bit. The win yesterday was pretty damn impressive. That was a top 5 defense that we moved up and down the field on methodically. We shortened the game. We minimized the chances the opposing team could exploit our weakness on defense and played from ahead the whole game. It was close but they got 2 big strikes on us and we still won by 8. 

No turnovers. 40 minutes of possession. And there's still room for improvement. Glass half full here. We have a formula on how to win. 

True.  Bears offense definitely sucks right now, but our defense played great overall.  

Still dont get the lack of moves before the deadline though.  To totally ignore wr and something for the defense seems criminal to me.  Yes I know they traded for that young de but cmon they probably could have done something more.

It was definitely an odd game for sure. They cane out exactly how I wanted but faltered late and looked like they did in past weeks. 

If Montgomery catches that screen who knows what happens.

We have like the 3rd highest paid WR unit and spent a 2 on a WR. You have to completely understand why they didn’t. 

I agree about the defense though but they did get Avery and I want to see more of him. He can move.

So now that the DeSean let down is final when he hits IR is Greg Ward the replacement? Any serviceable options out there at all? It’s not like it has to be a stud to make an impact on this roster.

Guy was in on 3 plays. Had 3 tackles and 1/2 sack. Need to play him a lot more.

Yeah protect the football and get a running game going. Seems like exactly what we've said here for weeks on time

I don't think they want to give up the draft capital at this point. If we had more picks maybe. We are in a bit of a cap issue (Not dire) where I don't think they want to ad anyone longterm who isn't young and on a huge deal.

Lets put it this way whoever is on the streets, you, me or my Cousin who has lower level Receiver experience in College would be just as good coming in for the next few weeks. However former player options and all I'd take Greg Ward or Marken Micheal over what is on the street. Both know the system and won't have to spend 2-3 weeks getting it down

Sadly some people are calling for him here in town. I don't think people understand. Yes he doesn't have a suspension right now but once he joins a team, the NFL is going to hit him with something. The Pats don't just drop a dude that can help them on the field unless they ####ed up and can't play. He's out because he will be suspended at least 4-6 games when he comes back anywhere.

Much like Gordon and Kaepernick etc they’re just names people are familiar with. Brown’s career is over but that won’t stop people clamoring for him to be brought back just like Ocho and T.O. were for years. 

No fixing our WR issues in 2019.

If his career is over, it isn't because of talent.

Me: No Way would I want that psycho Antonio Brown. He's gone completely crazy.

:If Eagles sign Brown:

Me :Holy crap. Wentz has Antonio Brown to throw to. One of the top 3 receivers in the game. Super Bowl, here we come!

That was argued with everyone else I mentioned. We have all been watching this game long enough to know it’s not based on talent alone

I put the over/under at 1 week before he turns on Wentz and/or management because they lightly criticized the color of his socks (or something to that effect).

I agree.  I honestly don't want him here. What's scary about Brown is he wet his entire career without being a problem. Then he had that incident last season where he threw the water cooler. It seemed way out character to me, but it was  a peak of things to come.  This preseason was seriously liek watching a mental patient descend farther and farther by the day.  Something happened inside Brown's head over the past year or so. Those things don't tend to heal themselves.

He's another reliable guy to catch balls in the 10-25 range at least. Less Hollins out there. Will make the defense have to defend another body.

Definitely.  Top 3 receiver on the planet and four guys barely of NFL talent. I just don't know about his mental decline. It's a scary proposition.

The only consolation I have with the Eagles looking at him is that he came in and lost his mind with Oakland then did the same in New England.  Both were able to dump him and both are doing find with no repercussions.

I don’t completely disagree. But....if Brown realizes this could be his only chance maybe, MAYBE he gives it his all. 

Thats all I got lol

**ETA**

And our WR’s need a kick in the ###. If Brown is the #1 everything else falls into place.

Where is this being reported about AB?

Is that the guy that's put out bad info before? Painted Lines sounds familiar.
Doesn't make sense that this guy would be the only one with this info.
Also, Brown's investigation is still open and he could end up on the exempt list, unable to play, if signed by a team.

Multiple sources tell The Painted Lines that the Eagles have offered a package including Zach Ertz to the Jaguars in exchange for Jalen Ramsey.

2:49 PM - 24 Sep 2019

Fake news.

This is what I was thinking of. Different guy, but also from Painted Lines.

I believe Brown recently said something to the effect that he doesn't even care about the game anymore.  He doesn't really even need to play.  This is not a guy who is going to "give it his all" at this stage of his career.
