    Eagles are going balls to the wall this offseason. Super Bowl or bust.

    Do the words Ronnie Brown and talent belong in the same sentence? Roonie Brown never lived up to his potential and he sucked last year.

    I thought they were thin at RB. If he stays healthy I see him as a good addition to that backfield with Vick and McCoy.

    Ronnie Brown has a ton of talent. What he doesn't have is functional knees.

    He sure will make them better for 10-15 snaps in four and half games this year.

    You have the guy who basically started the Wildcat in the NFL, teamed up with guys who have run the wildcat last year in LeSean McCoy, Desean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, plus two of the most elusive QBs in NFL history. Nah, shouldn't pose a problem to anyone.

    Well we don't play the Eagles until week 12 of the season. There will be plenty of game film to see how they operate on the field. Unfortunately, Vick might be banged up at that point in the season. But as consolation, we'll get either him or Vince Young to give us plenty of entertainment.

    One of the many games to look forward to.

    GoodPosting. The Eagles will definitely be worse with Ronnie Brown.

    If Vick can keep improving and adding on on how to play QB and not RB,the Eagles could be a 14 or 15 win team.

    I'm sorry, could you clarify something for me?

    Aside from Vick, who are you referring to with this statement?

    Thats a HUGE "IF"

    Vick's biggest problem has always been that he thinks hes better than he actually is. He's refused to watch film. Refused to accept training, and instruction.


    We'll see if he takes more steps forward this year, or with another big deal, if its more of the same.

    By who? lol

    I barely hear him get mentioned outside of FFB talk as an annual "sleeper" (who obviously never pans out).

    The guy will make a solid RB2 for Philly. Right up there with any back up tailback so long as he is healthy.

    Who is our back up right now? Sammy Morris? :eek:

    vick fell of as the season went on. In the last few weeks he straight up sucked. He will get hurt, miss atleast 3 games and suck atleast 3 games..that said, I think Vince Young would do better anyway.

    I just dont think Vick is as good as people think. I;m not all on his schlong like a ton of other people..when you go from being a scumbag in jail, to a scumbag who runs around with a football, people think you are great..well, he's not that great. I think BB will draw up a game plan to shut him down without a problem.

    saying they go unbeaten is a joke, that team wont even win the NFC East.

    If Eagles aren't winning the NFC East then who is? That division went from one of the toughest divisions two years ago to what looks like an absolutely mockery this year. I bet the AFC West averages more wins and only the NFC West will get less.

    The Eagles are the only team I see improved, and they were pretty good last year, a few plays short of knocking the superbowl champions out of the playoffs.

    Honestly guys, this is just a name signing. It's not concerning nor should it change much at all.

    If Vick had the balls to swallow his ego and hand the ball off to LeSean McCoy more I'd be fairly concerned, but he won't and signing Ronnie Brown won't mean much at this point in time.

    The Eagles still haven't addressed their offensive line or their linebackers.

    Winning Championships is not about collecting talent. It's about building teams. The Eagles have gone the flashy talent collection route before to no avail... Reid keeps getting portrayed as this great HC who can pull it all together only he never really has. And that included when he had Jimmy Johnson coordinating his defense.
