Well first off I want to say that im damn proud with what the Eagles did this season. I know there were many mistakes but that is what this post is about.This is how I would make the Eagles into Superbowl favorites for the 2011-2012 season (assuming no lockout.)

1. Sign Mike Vick to a 4 year contract for 45 million, 20 of it guaranteed. This will make him happy and be relatively cheap too.

2. Resign these players

  • RB Jerome Harrison for 2 yrs , He is a solid backup to LeSean McCoy and he deserves to play here for the next few years
  • WR DeSean Jackson for 5 yrs 50 million 20 guaranteed, lock him up and keep him for a loooong time
  • ILB Stewart Bradley 3 yrs, he should be our starter next year
  • ILB Akeem Jordan 2 yrs, backup purposes
  • PK David Akers 5 yrs, he will remain here for the rest of his career
  • CB Dimitri Patterson 3 yrs, ehh backup/ platoon with Trevard Lindley and Joselio Hanson
  • S Quinten Mikell 3 yrs, he is the best safety on our team
  • OG Max Jean Giles 4 yrs
  • P Sav Rocca 2 yrs

3.Release the following

  • DE Victor Abiamiri
  • OG Nick Cole
  • CB Ellis Hobbs
  • OLB Ernie Simms
  • ILB Omar Gaither
  • CB Antoine Harris
  • OG Reggie Wells

4. Next up is to trade Kevin Kolb. This bit of news came out and suggested Kolb would prefer to be traded than playing backup to Vick.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d81d96de0/article/eagles-backup-qb-kolb-i-want-to-be-starting-somewhere

 My preffered trade would be the following

Eagles give up: QB  Kevin Kolb (1 yr left 1.4 million) , Pick round 4 ( 119 0verall) for

Vikings QB Joe Webb, Pick round 1 ( 12th overall), Pick round 4 (108 overall)

This Trade would bring in a backup QB for Vick who is his clone. Aftor mentoring under Vick he can be ready to fill in when Vick gets injured. Plus the Eagles get a first and third round upgrade.

5. Free Agency

Eagles sign these players

  • CB Champ Bailey (den), With every team focused on the Raiders Nnamdi Asomuhga, the Eagles has a fairly good chance at landing Bailey for 3-4 years. He should be excellent across from Asante Samuel
  • ILB Desmond Bishop (gb) he likely wont return to gb and the Iggles need to replace Omar Gaithier.... he looks to be a pro bowler in the next few years
  • RG Ryan Cook (min) will provide better protection than Vick has seen before, can play for Dunlap

Draft!!!!

  • Rnd 1 (pick 12) from Vikings: Janoris Jenkins CB Florida, Eagles need better long term cbs so he is the answer  correction OT Gabe Carimi Wisconson, with Jenkins not leaving Florida he is key
  • Rnd 1 (pick 23) OT Joeseph Barksdale LSU, he will solidify our line protecting Vick  correction CB Davon House  New Mexico St.this will help our relatively weak CB corps
  • Rnd 2 (pick 55) DE Jabaal Sheard Pittsburgh, The fo loves local de's so why not?
  • Rnd 3 (pick 87) S Marcus Gilchrist Clemson, we need more depth at safety
  • Rnd 4 (pick 103) from Dmac Trade: OG Caleb Schlauderaff Utah, more oline help
  • Rnd 4 (pick 108) from Vikings: QB Scott Tolzein Wisconson, In case Joe Webb, Mike Kafka doesnt work
  • Rnd 5 (pick 146) from San Diego: RB Delone Carter Syracuse
  • Rnd 5 (pick 152) C Jordan Holmes Oregon
  • Rnd 6 (pick 179) trade from TB: TE Virgil Green Nevada
  • Rnd 7 (pick 212) trade from Seattle: OLB Malcom Smith USC
