    Philly is the closest NFL city to me...I see plenty of Eagles games and plenty of Jackson. He's a fast player that can catch the ball from the quarterbacks he's had that can get the ball to him. He isn't good enough to beat out Marshall for the #1 spot, and I think Ginn would have been good enough in the 2nd spot at being a fast guy that can occasionally make a long catch if we hadn't gotten rid of him.

    Oh, and I hate Ohio State and hated the Ginn pick when we drafted him, so it's not like I'm some Ginn or OSU homer.

    OK I am confused. Lombardi is saying now that DeSean Jackson is franchised, the Eagles can trade him for whatever they want, but in the new CBA (Article 10, section 2(a)(i) if you want to check for yourself) it says compensation for a franchise player is 2 first round picks. Im eirther missing something or Lombardi forgot to read the new CBA and is going off the old CBA.

    A guy with 900+ yards every year he's been in the league is only a little better than Ted Ginn. Just when I thought I heard it all, holy ****.

    I believe that only refers to Non Exclusive Franchise tags (for restricted free agents). If they sign an offer sheet with another team, then you have to give up 2 first rounders. From what i understand its basically a super charded RFA tender.

    Most of the FA like Desean Jackson or Ray Rice who are set to be unrestricted free agents are slapped with the EXCLUSIVE Franchise Tag. Doesn't allow them to talk to other teams. and trade terms are subject to whatever the teams agree to, however, you better be prepared to reward the disgruntled franchised player with a long term lucrative deal

    1st pick-Nick Perry
    2nd-Best available tackle
    3rd-Best available guard
    4th-Michael egnew

    DJ would be the perfect compliment to BM ... Now, if we just had a QB to distribute the ball.
