    Getting Jonathan Joseph over Namdi Asomugha was the smart thing to do... Did anybody he how Victor Cruz abused Asomugha and burned him for that TD? I thought I saw a #25 Texans jersey on #24 for the Eagles there for a moment...

    Meanwhile back at the Hall of Shutdown, Joseph is having a pro bowl caliber year. Glad the Texans FO finally got one right when it come to FA...

    I think with ASO it is more of the entire teams play. They are merging quite a few new players. I thought it would be an issue but not this bad. Surprised they won last night the way Young began.

    Johnathan Joseph and Carlos Rogers have both considerably outperformed Asomugha.

    Eagles are tied for 4th in the NFL in sacks. Ahead of both the Texans and 49ers.

    Joseph was the right guy to sign. Best FA signing in the history of the franchise.

    Yep.

    IMO, Nnamdi has a LeBron'ish quality to him.

    Definitely, although I think Antonio Smith is under-rated as an acquisition.

    I'm watching our game vs Baltimore right now.

    Sending our LBs to blitz on every single play is making some easy throws underneath our corners & safeties.

    At the time, and we can go back to the threads for this if we have to, I said that I wanted us to make a concerted attempt to sign Nnamdi but I wanted to go for Joseph.

    Now.. I said that because I never thought Nnamdi was going to really want to come here and I wanted us to get the next highest rated player AND a good safety... which we did. And I was :hurrah: about that.

    But I never expected JJo to come here and make the difference he's made. He has been a freaking monster.

    Ditto. Especially when it became obvious that Nnamdi was playing the Texans FO.

    I think it was safe to say that the second we signed Manning that day too. Anyone still want Eric Weddle. He's not doing so great either.

    Asomugha was overrated, that much I've said!

    And yes, the Eagles have been playing quite a bit of cover 2 just like the Raiders did.

    And no, Aso doesn't shut down half of the field!

    I'm a huge Joseph fan, but I would have been totally fine with either him or Asomugha at the same price tag.

    Except Nnamdi's intelligent and isn't a dick.

    My vote would go to Foster. But if you meant biggest known commodity FA acquisition, then yeah I definitely agree. We've had some bad free agent signings over the years

    Bingo! I think Aso would have looked great in Wade's defense, as well.

    Remember Philly does not have a proven DC right now. And we, of all fan bases, should know how the results can be when a friend of a head coach is signed as a coordinator when he has no business being there to begin with...
