    Brian Dawkins

    How would you guys feel about bring Dawk back? He's a UFA and raise the D's level up a notch simply by him being in the locker room. Would love for him to retire an Eagle.

    For the 80th time- Dawkins' family is in school, and entrenched in Denver, and has no interest in coming back to Philly again!

    As I said when we let him go: I do not wish to watch him die on the field.

    truth be told...hes better than anything we can put out on the field. We shouldnt have let him go the first time. Is he just about finished...probably. Would i rather have the guy from the dolphins (im drawing a blank) yes. If he came back at a silly price...would i turn him down? No

    I'd bring BDawk back in a heartbeat, but he would be my Strong Safety, not my FS.

    Dawkins is better than anything we have. Even at his age he can still hit. I would definately move him to strong safety and it wouldn't shock me to see him do well.

    And yet some of you oppose drafting a blue chip SS.
    Chip is the man!

    How many players have you seen Reid give up on after 1 year, no matter how badly they sucked?

    As far as Dawkins goes, that ship has sailed.

    I said it before he was draftes and ill say it again...Jarrett will be a pro bowl safety before too long.

    Dawk has already said he is playing for Denver or no one.

    Please tell me what brings you to this conclusion?

    Jarrett cant hit, he cant cover, he cant tackle. Hes like a backup punter, he has no value or purpose. I hope he pans out but if he repeats his rookie uear hes gonna be a TC cut next year. Im starting to warm to the barran at 15 idea.

    I guess im starting to open up to the idea of taking the best in an unexciting bunch.

    Copples
    Barron
    Kirkpatrick
    Brockers (my least favorite, saw way too much footage of him getting abused by guards. Hes gonna get owned in the nfl run game)
    Poe (the dt i actually think is the best git for the wide 9)

    We need a hard hitting angry safety a quick aggressive sam backer and a hog at dt next to jenkins 320+ lbs.

    You can pickup a big run stuffer DT in late rounds.

    Trade down and take Barrons or take Smith in rd 2.
    You could take a SAM with a late pick in Round 1.

    Either way, I like LB, SS, and DT.

    Deano I'm on Board with Barron at #15..... I think if JJ pans out great we have solid depth and a special teamer as well.....Barron is a difference maker.

    That's almost as bad of a statement as you thinking Courtney Upshaw was going to run faster than any other LB at the combine. Upshaw was never known for his speed.

    Anyway on to Jarrett, I didn't like the pick back then, felt we reached hard to get him. But this guy can hit and tackle very well, though coverage is not his strength. Regardless, you can't give up on the kid after one year and keep drafting rookie safeties high expecting them to start, then if they suck keep drafting another one high the next year.
