Executive summary of the Wentz extension:

1. It's effectively only $66M guaranteed, including guaranteed salary from his current contract of $31M. So, the Eagles wrapped up Wentz an additional 4 years for only an additional $35M guaranteed.

2. Eagles still have $22M in cap space this season. Extending now allows the Eagles to roll some of the extension into this season's and next's cap, which could lower the average of the extension to ~$27M.

3. Extending now allows the Eagles to set the market before Goff, Prescott, and Mahomes sign extensions.

By this time next season the Wentz deal will be regarded as a great deal for the Eagles as a TEAM
as we watch Mahomes and Prescott clean house and destroy their franchises (see: Flacco deal)
The Ravens went .500 for 5 years after making Flacco the highest paid player

You can't do that sh!t and win

here's a list from April - count the Superbowl winners...
(after they signed the BIG deals and the teams had to let the talent on the roster walk)

1. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson: $35 million
2. Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger: $34 million
3. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: $33.5 million
4. Falcons QB Matt Ryan: $30 million
5. Vikings QB Kirk Cousins: $28 million
6. 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo: $27.5 million
7. Lions QB Matthew Stafford: $27 million
8. Raiders QB Derek Carr: $25 million
9. Saints QB Drew Brees: $25 million
10. Colts QB Andrew Luck: $24.6 million

Wentz gets his preseason work in in the first half against the Redskins.

Eagles dominate the second half, scoring 25 unanswered points and possessing the ball for 22 minutes in the half.

1-0. 4th quarter was cruise control.

Anyone wondering if the Eagles kept the right quarterback, the one they didn't keep got a broken collarbone today.

I wish Nick well, but you never know when injuries will happen, so you always go with the guy with the most upside.

It was a tale of two halves, all right. Good to see DeSean Jackson back in epic form. Eagles have some work to do on D, but it’s still early.

I got two words: DeSean Jackson

:shock:

There is nothing wrong with the Redskins secondary - it's got talent
but he made them look bad (and they aren't bad)

The Eagles have needs on defense, they made Case Keemun look good.

Long season, and when all is said and done, the most important thing is winning. Eagles did that yesterday, and stayed relatively healthy doing it. Just take it one W at a time and it will all work out in the end. Let's go and put the Falcons in a mighty deep 0-2 hole next week and keep things rolling. Team looks really good.

Watching some of the Cowboys/Giants game, there were showing flashbacks to big NFC East games and it made me realize that the NFC East is the only division to have all four teams win Super Bowls. Isn't that correct?

Yup, despite having some really good years, the Eagles were the laggard and hadn't won a Super Bowl (NFL championships pre-Super Bowl didn't count in that math). Once they knocked off the Pats in LII, the NFC East was the only one with that distinction. Two others are close, AFC West just needs the Chargers to win (Raiders had those good years in the 70's, the Chiefs won Super Bowl 4, and the Broncos won recently) and the AFC East just needs the Bills to win (Jets won with Namath and the Dolphins about the same time - a long time ago). I don't think either are going to happen anytime soon.

Well that was a bit of a mini bodybag game for the Birds.

I really thought Wentz might have a cracked rib again after that hard but clean hit in the first quarter. He was on his ass way too much last night.

The secondary is brutal. Schwartz at least kept them in the game by dialing up the right pressure.

The Eagles need to figure out how to actually get an early lead. They've been playing from behind for two years now, and that's on Pederson and Wentz.

That downfield block by the ATL lineman on the winning Julio Jones TD was a thing of beauty, even if it cost my team the game. Wow. :lol: :notworthy:

I really thought they were going to pull it out last night. Not a good weekend for football in my house. UVA was the only winner.

A win would have made all the injuries seem less daunting.

Now it seems like a real disaster.

Lose to the Lions on Sunday, and it could become one.

However, I feel like the Eagles are going to open a can of whoop ass on the Lions, like they always do.

Sometimes minor injuries early can help a team and a coaching staff
The key is "early" in the season... so they can measure the depth and skill sets of the bench

as long as the Eagles come out of September no worse than 2-2 they're fine

Agreed. No one is lost long term (that I know of) right now so nothing tragic at this moment. Teams lose games from time to time - no one had the Eagles winning all 16. Pretty sure the Eagles were 1-1 with a road loss back in the Super Bowl season as well. Gotta get things shored up, though, before that stretch in October with the road games. I have faith in Dougie though, guy can coach, so all's good.

Can’t say too much as Broncos are 0-2, but Eagles have issues on defense. Made Keenum look good last week and Ryan picked them apart pretty good last night

Looks like Jernigan could be lost for 4-6 weeks - report is broken foot, no surgery. He's replacing Malik Jackson who's lost for the year. Thin at DT.

Call me a negative Nancy two weeks in but the Eagles are looking like a wildcard team. Dallas is strong & now they'll play the Saints with Bridgewater at QB...

The Eagles will most likely need to sweep the Cowboys to win the division.

Early “body bag” games are never a good thing, particularly where key positions (WR, DT) are concerned.
