This is interesting, I would bet that Carson Wentz and Nick Foles for instance; were Trump voters.
The Chris Long’s, Malcolm Jenkins’ types are such a part of this problem.
The World Champions are a disrespectful group that do not care about alienating their customers. I cannot wait to root against them for their embarrassing bullshit in 2018.
The Philadelphia Eagles have made a couple quiet but savvy moves early in free agency, bringing back Nick Foles on a two-year contract and signing stud guard Chance Warmack (former top 10 pick in the draft) to a one-year $2 million dollar deal.
Warmack is a road grader blocking guard; who should help in the run game and reunites with former OL coach Doug Pederson. Foles had a near MVP as the starter in Philadelphia and should Carson Wentz miss any time, he’s an excellent back-up quarterback with the experience he has.
I’ve always liked Albert Breer, and he’s in podcast form now straight out of The MMQB talking about how they went and got Carson Wentz in last year’s draft.
The good dialogue starts around the 22:40 mark in the audio clip above.
To be honest it sounds like Roseman just sounds relieved to have Wentz. He compares the Eagles now to the spots the 2004 Giants, Chargers, and Steelers have put themselves in to where they’re still building around the guy they drafted back in that draft some 13+ years ago.
And the Eagles are starting to build around their guy. There are still rumors of them doing something to get Brandon Cooks from the New Orleans Saints.

This past season, the love I had for NFL just seems to disappear. All I cared about was who I had money on, or who I needed for my pick em’. I didn’t even put that much effort into fantasy football. I just didn’t really care. I thought it was a combination of things. Having a two year old and a newborn might have been it. The Kaepernick and anthem bullshit made me feel betrayed. But I just wasn’t inspired and didn’t care. The NFL did something to turn me off, spare a few nights when I really thought it was great.
One of those nights I felt invested was on December 22nd, a few days before Christmas when the Eagles played the Giants and won 24-19 in Philadelphia. The Eagles pulled off a nice upset, and while Wentz didn’t have a great game, he really showed toughness in the win. I said to myself I really like this kid a lot after a season of up’s and down’s.
He hit Nelson Agholor for a 40-yard touchdown early in the game, and I said ‘what an arm’.
Today I purchased a pre-order of the Carson Wentz figure coming out next year.
I need a new horse, so badly. Someone that really interests me week in and week out. Wentz could be that guy, easily. The Eagles could be a reason I buy Madden one more time.
This is something to keep an eye on. This could bring this blog back to life.
