    I like Gary Guyton but, run stopper? I don't think I'd go out of my way to get Gary Guyton to stop the run....

    Disable Jersey

    :confused:


    Is Guyton going to bring Spikes with him for running plays, or something?

    I'm not sure you guys appreciate how bad the Eagles run defense is. Guyton would shore up their run D (and that's saying something) (stirring the pot).

    Jared Allen would be an interesting one but he's not worth a 1st round pick at his age.

    I would drive to Minnesota if necessary to get Jared Allen.

    I hate to give up 1st round picks, but we are not talking about
    Jared from Subway.

    We are talking about Jared Allen !

    Go get the beast !

    If by cornerback Brandt meant safety, I agree.

    Wow Jared Allen has 8.5 sacks in 5 games. Give up like a 2nd and maybe a 4th? Dunno why minnesota would unload him but that would be huge.

    I enjoy listening to Brandt on Sirius but this sounds like something one would pull off in a fantasy football league.

    Maybe we can trade that 1st round pick for two 2nd round picks
    and draft another Cunningham and Brace.

    Much rather have Jared Allen.

    Ya, seriously. The first for Allen is a waste, too.

    If we're giving up draft picks I sure as hell hope it's for a viable safety next to Chung.

    Or maybe another Rob Gronkowski.

    No thanks to Allen.

    i would pick up allen for a 2nd and an extra lower pick at most....would NOT give up anderson to do it, i want them both

    CB is not a prob right now, we have good CB's, we just need them to execute....philly has rodgers, asomogha and asante and they STILL cant stop the pass...ill take a safety from somewhere b4 a CB

    would love to be able to finally have a pass rush, the guys we have cause more and more pressure every week, so we're improving, but Jared can play some serious ball (he did bad last season, was he injured? monster season 2 yrs ago though)

    and we really really really could use a coverage (free) safety, above anything else really

    offense is obviously great, hopefully Ocho is our secret playoff weapon, so keep him

    Already gave my thoughts in that other thread. Basically, there's no way Belichick gives a 1st for Allen and THEN plays him $30M for 2.6 seasons. One or the other is worth it for a player of his caliber, but nowhere close to both. Adding DRC is a kneejerk reaction to McCourty struggling in man coverage. DRC isn't beating out Bodden or Arrington for snaps in zone coverage, and right now McCourty wouldn't start over Dowling in man coverage. With DRC on the Pats, either McCourty would lose his starting spot or DRC wouldn't be starting, and that makes no sense.

    You also have to find an extra $9M a year to pay Allen as opposed to two second round draft picks on their rookie contracts. Who does that $9M come at the expense of; Chung, Mayo, Gronkowski, Hernandez, or Vollmer?:confused:

    Part of the problem with Philly's defense is that Nnamdi is being asked to play out of position and to Asante's strength (zone)...or what used to be. They should have flipped Asante "I am only comfortable as the LCB in zone coverage" Samuel once they signed DRC and Nnamdi to fill another area of weakness... But instead of admitting they have a poorly constructed roster they are looking for a defensive consultant (supposedly Mangini was their first choice) to prop up their overwhelmed scapegoat DC.

    Exactly. Samuel needs to be the odd one out there, not DRC. The problem is that he's been on the block for over a year, but nobody wants his contract, his unwillingness to tackle, or his attitude.

    Made me laugh. I don't think they lack pass rushers as much as focus on defense. Carter and anderson are fine IMO.

    They need a safety.

    Brandt is a great football guy, but he's old and i sense he's been mailing it in for years. Guyton as a run stopper? Come on now.
