    You really think he'll take 75% of the snaps next year?
    I suppose the Colts' OL will protect him well, but he'll still likely find a way to get hurt, benched or both.
    The odds are good. He’s only taken less once in his career. He’d have to miss four or five games.

    Counterpoint: He's due to miss a full season after getting hurt in camp.  ;)

    Hey man, if he ends up missing a ton of games due to injury again or gets benched for 4 or more games...kinda emphasizes they were right to get what they could for him now right? And if he plays well, the Eagles get a first rounder out of it.

    Believe me, this is a disaster. lol. Pissed at how we ended up in this spot, but I think the haul isn't bad considering nobody else had significant interest in him.

    And the thing that no one is talking about but is absolutely the main issue going forward is: Howie bought himself three years right? If they still suck by then he can't not be fired right?

    I know the money was part of the issue but I kind of think they jumped the gun.  If they waited longer some desperate team might have offered more closer to draft when options are more limited. I think the play this year with supposedly so many QBs available is to wait it out.

    Seeing these reports that Indy's GM Ballard gave the Birds an expiration on the Wentz trade is just great, and shows how much Howie was bent over a barrell.

    So between my question above and the news re: the trade negotiations w/ Indy - and for as much credit I give Howie for being the biggest reason this team finally won a Super Bowl - I am itching at a reason to start trashing this guy. All I can hope for is that he proves us all wrong.
