The Eagles and Patriots really love to trade with each other

Danny Watkins, Andy Reid AP

One of the weirdest draft stats we saw over the last month: The Patriots and Eagles have made a trade in every single draft since Bill Belichick took over in New England.

The streak apparently means more to the teams than we thought.

The Patriots sent the No. 193 pick in the draft to Philadelphia for . . .  (wait for it) . . . the No. 194 pick.

That’s so dorky, we sorta love it.

    Best 2 franchise’s in the NFL

    Hate it. What’s the point? “We do what’s best for the team”?

    Trading down one spot isn’t bad for the team and obviously they weren’t going to lose out on “their” player by making the trade. It does show how well aware they are of the frequency of their draft trades.

    Few people care what the NFL is doing anymore now that the lockout has been reimplemented by the league. Withthe draft over, expect fan interest in the NFL to largely disappear. Good job, Goodell. You killed the Golden Goose.

    Berman interviewed BB yesterday and mentioned this weird streak of trades w/ Phi. to him. BB laughed.

    Wouldn’t one of the criteria for claiming best franchise in the NFL include winning a Super Bowl at some point in the history of the franchise?

    DeMo Smith the ambulance chaser just filed a lawsuit against the Patriots and Eagles for……….wait for it………….. COLLUSION!

    This to me is a more interesting trade than CLE’s fleecing of ATL

    Good to know these guys can keep their senses of humor while the rest of us fuss about pass rushers.

    Does every Eagles fan suddenly look at this and think their team just somehow got screwed by BB ????

  12. oldpftusernewname says: Apr 30, 2011 4:21 PM

    Sorry cdjones34, the Steelers have the Eagles beat in that category. And I’m not a Steelers fan, just pointing out that they have had remarkable stability, good player acquisitions *and* the trophies.

    What a buncha fruits.

  14. hobartbaker says: Apr 30, 2011 4:26 PM

    Belichick also gets a first rounder in 2012 with the deal.

  15. stealthjunk says: Apr 30, 2011 4:34 PM

    Why would they trade #193 for #194? There must have been another pick in that trade.

    It’s all sheets and giggles until it comes time to win a playoff game.

    “Berman interviewed BB yesterday and mentioned this weird streak of trades w/ Phi. to him. BB laughed.”

    ……..and some people try to say that Belichick doesn’t have a sense of humor.

    “Wouldn’t one of the criteria for claiming best franchise in the NFL include winning a Super Bowl at some point in the history of the franchise?”

    What’s really funny is their lone contribution to Super Bowl lore was their QB blowing chunks on the field.

    Hilarious – just shows that by Day 3 even Belichick is feeling a little goofy!

  20. tblitz25 says: Apr 30, 2011 5:38 PM

    You guys are missing the point. The Eagles got pick 194 from the Jets. So BB wanted the Jets pick to select a player from that pick. A little draft day fun for the hoody.

  21. jgrange says: Apr 30, 2011 5:58 PM

    @seanmmartin – Thanks. I knew there was probably a singular word for it but didn’t feel like looking it up.

  22. visnovsky says: Apr 30, 2011 6:47 PM

    This is hilarious.

  23. 2dimesandanickelback says: Apr 30, 2011 7:43 PM

    Obviously BB made the trade due to money concerns. Figured he’d drop down a slot and save the team a few thousand dollars when they sign the man they drafted.

  24. krow101 says: Apr 30, 2011 8:58 PM

    … and both had crappy drafts.

    This isnt the 1st time something like this happened. Ron Wolf when he was with the Packers did the same thing in a trade with Al Davis…..

    Funny thing is crazy Al still thinks the Raiders are the “team of the decades” and Jeffry Laurie thinks the E-Girls are the NFL’s “gold standard”….

    In the spirit of all this giveing to others going around…..and since they will never see one of their own. Mike Tomlin wanted his cross state rivals to know they can visit Steeler HQ any time. They have a few Lombardi’s lying around the place….

    It would be hard to argue with the fact that the Eagles Pats steelers and maybe even the packers are the best teams in the league as far as personel.

    These 4 teams have a chance every year over the past decade. I would throw the colts in as well but imo take away Manning and they have 4-6 losing season in the past decade.

    Someone said that the Eagles and Pats had “bad” drafts. I am not sure how you can say this since both teams filled most of their needs and gained players who imo will be really good players, considering neither team had a top 15 pick in this draft i’d say both teams did very well with free angency still to come and both teams being places players want to play because of the coaches that coach there.

    I agree with the person who said they made this pick so the pats could take a player who could have went to the jets. The hoody likes to mess with them and i could be wrong but wasn’t the pick Cannon who if he can get healthy will be the best interior gaurd in this draft

    One of them is. The other one THINKS they are, but hasn’t done anything for 50+ years.

    They used the pick to select Markell Carter actually…but I like your idea better.

    And I LOVE the thought that BB might have swapped that pick to tweak the NYJ. :D

    endzone…you are an under educated moron. You are obviously a communist. The NFL at fault? . By what stretch of your feebel imagination brings you to that opinion. The players are employees and always will be. When you get past 4th grade, give me a call
