Yeah, that worked out really well with Goodwin.

Championship!

It's embarrassing to Payton and the coaching staff and it makes the team look bad.
It doesn't matter if a player once put up three hundred yards running on top of water. A guy coming back from an injury is just a guy coming back from an injury -particularly one to the lower extremities- until he proves himself for several games. That ain't gonna happen if there's not someone good hiking the ball in the first place. It makes much more sense to sign one of the guys already out there waiting than to trade the only back we know for sure is decent. Plus, Ingram came to the Saints a child. He's grown up quite a bit and hasn't done the tantrum thing in a couple of years now. He keeps running like he did last year and Payton'll keep taking him home for dinner.

It makes sense to trade Ingram for Kelce and the 4th rd draft pick the Eagles got for Eric Rowe that could possibly become a 3rd rounder. I don't think it happens right away because I think they want to see how Peterson looks first. I think replacing our center is more important than Ingram. Without a good line, we won't be able to run anyway.
If they are as desperate as you say, then yes, they had "dibs" (aka cap space, draft picks) to get any of a number of backs. Or are you really insinuating that the Eagles were waiting around for an injury opportunity so they could make a trade?

C'mon Will's brother, reveal yourself

Mangold's got a bad ankle. Doubt we sign him. We won't see any signings until the weekend or sometime next week at the soonest. If we do, I think it means Unger is headed to IR.

Although this could be the first almost, sorta, kinda, semi-intelligent pseudo-discussion we've had since the draft....

Ian Fullacrap, you are now zero for your life in "reporting anything accurate.
