  1. LOL!

    Boy, they’re desperate. This guy has been essentially cooked for 2 years. It’s why in house depth is pretty vital.

  2. I always liked Joseph and think this is a good signing for the Eagles. But I’m curious if the Eagles reached out to Suh?

  3. Good guy and an expert against the interior run, something exposed on the Eagles defense Monday.

  4. One of my favorite players. If memory serves correct he had a long TD run vs the Eagles when he played for the Vikes (and needed oxygen on the sidelines after).

  5. We were told that the Washington game wasn’t going to provide a blueprint on how to take down the Philthies.

  6. I don’t understand how a so-called championship defense falls apart with one player missing! Will a 34 year old player who’s been sitting on the couch all year fix that?!
