Just heard on NFL Network that as per the CBA, Zoe's estate/Guardian will receive $9,000 per month over the next 4 years, $48,000 the next year and then $52,000 a year until she turns 18 or 23 (depending on if she goes to college)

Plus it's said that the players on the Chiefs are trying to put something together for her as well. It's good to know that she'll be taken care of financially at least

Well the Eagles have been a nightmare ever since Vince Young called them the dream team last season.

All of their free agent signings have been busts.

The only thing to look forward to is a new coach and a new philosophy. Going forward it looks like Foles will be the guy. Vick will be dumped.

Who will want Vick? At his age and his athleticism is not what it once was. He is injury prone and can't read defenses.

The whole secondary needs to be looked at.

It seems odd to me though that Reid is making moves for the future already when his job is not guaranteed for next season.

It could just be that he wants to leave Philly and be remembered as a guy who did what was best for the franchise moving forward when he turns the keys over rather than playing to save his job.

Maclin should also be traded. They need a big physical true #1 receiver to compliment Desean Jackson's speed. Maclin is too similar to Jackson.

Riley Cooper is a good red zone guy but I don't know if he has the speed or route running ability to get open down field and play on a regular basis.

At least it looks like the Eagles will have one of the best backfield's in the league next year in McCoy and Bryce Brown that should help Foles to improve quicker as a qb.

I think it will be good for both Reid and the Eagles to mutually part ways. I'm sure Reid will get hired in San Diego when Norv Turner is fired.

The Eagles need a fiery coach like Tomlin or Harbaugh who's philsophy is physical smash mouth football. That's what the Philly fans want.

They want a team they can relate to who is tough and big and physical not based on flash and no substance. Laurie better not disappoint.

We'll take Maclin. Welker, Maclin, Edelman, Woodhead, Hernandez, who will the screen pass go to? no one will know! Sigh. That'd be nice.

Swap Byron Leftwich and Tom Brady's situations. Today Brady would be a UFA or on the Roughriders practice roster, Byron Leftwich would have 100 more wins than losses.

I think you guys also need a big receiver on the outside you already have enough slot guys. :lol:

Actually I don't mind Maclin as a slot guy but out wide they need a bigger body especially for the red zone. Hopefully Riley Cooper can become the true #1 receiver they have lacked since T.O.

A core of Maclin in the slot with Jackson and Cooper on the outside would really pressure defenses.

Avant isn't much of a threat right now in the slot after the catch because of his lack of speed but if they let Maclin loose in the slot with his speed he could really do some damage underneath along with Celek.

I'm really intrigued by Riley Cooper he runs a 4.5 40 at 6 foot 3 and 220 pounds and has a 40 inch vertical... pretty fly for a white guy no?

Could become the next great breakout receiver no has heard about yet if he develops in the off-season.

I really like the potential of the Eagles offence if Cooper develops and Foles continues his growth.

Whoever coaches this team next year will have plenty of talent on offence to work with. If the O-line is healthy it also is a solid unit despite the problems of this year.

The main problems with the Eagles is that defense. Off-season priority should clearly be on overhauling the defense.

Suggs will be out which will help.

IMO Raiders hiring Allen was a mistake, their previous staff wasn't bad enough to warrant a change. Teams got wet off Denver's defensive turnaround ( 32nd -22nd ), completely ignoring that they were still a bottom 10 unit and allowed an ungodly amount of points on a regular basis. 40+ more than any other team in the league. I think Del Rio is better, but I was praying they would take Mccoy instead, what a complete tool. The guy basically handed his playbook to the opposing teams last year, and now he somehow does the impossible in making a Peyton freaking Manning lead offense impotent for half of each game. Hopefully he pulls a McDaniels and rides Manning's coattails into a HC job next season.

Carson Palmer is a bum, not a bad Qb, just a complete bum. He's this years Kyle Orton. Looooser.

Von Miller is good at football.

Denver missing Kuper really showed, he ties that O-line together. The only guy Peyton is better at avoiding sacks than is Philip Rivers, that guys like the slowest human on earth. Kuper went down in week 16 last year and the O line was trash in the Playoffs vs NE, like a combo of this years Cardinals + Eagles 2nd stringers trash. Hopefully he's good to go soon.

Rahim Moore is much improved, still has gaffes, but soooo much better than last year.

Thomas is another big improvement, didnt think he would ever shake off the butterfingers, but he has. Going on a 6 or so game streak of legit play. Decker hasn't gotten any better. He's like a retarded Ed McCaffrey.

I agree 100% about Dennis Allen. The hire made no sense to me whatsoever.

Palmer is a bad Quarterback. But really, it's not his fault. The guy was literally on pace to become a top QB in this league and he got injuries that he never recovered him, namely his throwing ability and mobility.

As for Vick, honestly, I wouldn't mind him. If you can put an offensive line in front of him that can actually protect him, he's a good QB and has proven to be one.

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Price Brent was the driver in a fatal hit-and-run accident early Saturday morning that might have involved a teammate, according to three sources.

Who will want Vick? At his age and his athleticism is not what it once was. He is injury prone and can't read defenses.

I only watched maybe one or two Eagles games but in one of them, Vick was constantly pressured throughout the entire game. I'm not sure he's at fault mainly because his o-line sucks and he can't settle into the pocket with all that pressure. I think the o-line needs to be looked at first and foremost because if you can't score on the offence with that kind of o-line, then what's the point of even playing the game.

I remember that :(.

In fact I was at the Seahawks game when that happened. Seahawks actually lost to the Cardinals that day too.

I actually wore my Titans jersey to that game too. My friends were letting me have it whenever the score would come up on the scoreboard.
