    Apparentlhy Philip Thomas is telling everyone that he never signed with Eagles and is signing with the Redskins but the Eagles say he has signed with them. I read elsewhere that his facebook was supposedly hacked and his twitter account says he's an Eagle but other sources say they've talked directly on the phone with Thomas and he is signing with WAS.

    They seem to like WR's
    "It was the balls fault" Raid 2010
    The 14 year reign of mismanagement is over, hope runs rampant once again.

    we are a heavy passing team... need a lot of camp fodder, for all these QB's to throw to.

    I have to admit, when I read the title of this thread... the first thing that popped into my head.. was whether we brought in another C. I'm surprised. lol

    On a side note, i'm still reeling a bit about Reid stating that he used McCoy a bit too much last year. The rushing TD's by McCoy was insane. And I keep thinking, this means Reid will go back to passing it more, and the redzone will turn into a bigger issue again. I think he would rather lose doing it his way, than win doing it another way at times. I hope.. it's just a smokescreen attempt.. or they want to lower his numbers for contract negotiating purposes.. or some such silliness... and that Reid might have grasped the importance of a running game. If we had had a 'defense' to go along with this - it's amazing what this team could have been.

    He's not really super fast (4.53 40 speed), but his body control is insane ... the kid does a great job of adjusting to the ball when it's in the air.

    Kid totally reminds me of Victor Cruz....has great hands and he sure looks much faster than his timed speed, he smokes everyone on the field my 5-10 yards every play! his moves in open field are sick!

    I think if Polk can stay healthy he makes this team as our Power back.

    Even the UDFAs are sick this year. I can see Polk and Harris fighting for a roster spot.
    Chip is the man!

    I like the mix. Cliff Harris could be a huge steal.
