Hail Mary

There you have it. I’ve laid it all out on the line. I’ve thrown the bomb as time expired. From the back of the future in Jordan Howard to a recently premature retiree and everything in between, I’ve showcased the best realistic options for the Eagles should they choose to make a move before the trade deadline on Oct. 30.

The fact of the matter is that the NFL trade block is a tricky one and you never really know what is going to happen until it’s all said and done. Finagling the pieces so that each team feels they benefit enough to make a deal happen is a process that mirrors the 76ers rebuilding process in which we all trusted and continue to trust in. It’s long, it’s painful and it ain’t pretty (I’m talking to you MCW).

The Eagles may very well choose to spare themselves the trouble and finagle around the pieces they already possess. Though a questionable move to waive a promising defensive tackle in exchange for the addition of a glorified special teams player is their latest attempt at “making an adjustment”, I hold faith that Howie, Doug and the rest of the front office will do what’s best for the team and the city of Philadelphia.

They are aware that last year’s achievements don’t satisfy the never-ending hunger for victory in Philadelphia and now that we’ve dipped our feet in the water, we want to dive headfirst into the pool of dynasty alongside the greats.

Next. Why didn’t the Philadelphia Eagles trade for Carlos Hyde?. dark

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We need to just take it one step at a time, continue to improve and only then can we make a run deep into the playoffs, take down every team in our path and sit atop our throne once again as Super Bowl Champions, owning the title of the first ever Underdog Dynasty (I’m patenting that immediately.
