If the Eagles get the 1st, it means Wentz impressed the Colts enough to warrant that first.
which will also mean that 1st will be in the bottom 1/3 of the 1st round as well.

Eagles actually made out fine with the trade considering no other team was in the running for Wentz. Move forward with the 6th pick and get Hurts some help whether it's o-line for protection or a real WR. Defense is also on the table, just don't draft a QB

Or he was just less shitty than he was this past season. Playing better, but being an avg starting QB will still get him the allotted playing time needed to kick it into a 1st. On paper it looks like they will have a difficult schedule. If they see themselves as a playoff team, they will need to roll with him as they literally don't have a backup. If the Colts play well and make the playoffs, I'll still be glad with a pick in the low 20's when they were bidding against themselves.

I thought Ertz woulda been part of this deal
He might end up there. Probably dont want his contract.

moe allie cox is a fa, trey burton is a FA, and jack doyle has an out in his contract this off season. They can cut him for 1.5 million hit and save 4.25 million.

Moe allie cox was intriguing, but he lost snaps as the season went on. Burton never was what they hoped, and doyle has been less than spectacular, especially at close to 6 million.

Yeah sounds like Ertz in some creative financial way could still end up in Indy. Indy is already really interesting, Ertz and one of these FA wide receivers would really elevate them to another level. Of course I’m tossing this all out without being completely aware of their financial situation

I'd bet Indy never lets him see 70% of the snaps, if just less than shitty. If Eagles get that 1st a lot of Eagles fans, especially the Wentz fan boys, will be loud in their displeasure.

Isn't there a clause that lower percentage gets first too if indy makes playoffs?

I hope we get a 1st. Getting a pick in the 20's is better than the 50's. Even still there is a scenario where Wentz plays well(avg starter) and they miss the playoffs, given their schedule. If their in the playoff hunt, they aren't going to bench him.

Yes, but he still has to play a certain amount of snaps. If he looks ablittle less than shitty, their probably struggling to win games and are on the outside looking in so they they make a change at QB, so Wentz doesnt get the snaps in

Condition 2 is, if Wentz plays 75% of the snaps the 2nd becomes a 1st regardless of the Colts record. Conditions 2 is if Wentz plays 70% and Colts make the playoffs that 2 is now a 1.

So around weeks 5-7 the Colts will make a decision on Wentz's playing time.

Considering nobody else wanted him, getting at minimum a 3rd and 2nd, is a good job. They made the mistake of extending him and got what they could for him.

I like the idea the Egles now have a chance to develop Nate Suddifield into a potential starter. QB controversy coming next year

“Not thrilled,” ESPN NFL Nation Eagles Reporter Tim McManus said Friday on Get Up! about how the Eagles feel in the aftermath of the trade. “They recognize the return they got vs. what they invested in (Wentz) does not match up

It’s funny seeing some Eagles fans seeing this as a good return. What they gave up for him to trade up, his value at his peak, etc. Fas and the team valued him as a franchise QB and not too long ago they probably thought a Watson return or close was the only return suited. With all the dead cap...this isn’t anything close to a win. The only way this can somewhat be healed for now is if Hurts becomes the real deal, which doesn’t seem very likely.

I agree getting the 1st is much better than a 2nd, and no I don't think you'll be one to bitch about the trade, as you were never a fan boy, and for the most part your pretty level headed. I agree if their in the hunt they wont bench him, but it probably also means he's not playing a little less than shitty..

I think some are saying they got a pretty good return considering Indy was the only buyer.

It is a far cry from the 3 1st's some once claimed they'd get.
