Eagles News: Why Davon House fits in Philadelphia

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 3/6/2015.

Let's get to the links...

The 2012 Week 1 Eagles: Who's left? - PhillyVoice
With the trade of LeSean McCoy, and the releases of Trent Cole and Todd Herremans, let's take a look at the 2012 Week 1 roster to see how many survivors are left from the Andy Reid era.

Mystery of ILB - Iggles Blitz
I could also see the Eagles going cheap, with Polk, Sproles and a rookie sharing carries. And don’t forget that Matthew Tucker and Kenjon Barner are on the roster as well. Tucker has 2 years of practice squad experience. He might be ready to earn a job this year. Ingram is the middle option. I’m not sure I see the value in going for the middle option. Go get the star if the price is right. Or go with RB-by-committee and really save money. I’ll watch some Ingram and see if he’s good enough to get excited about. I’m sure he’s good, but is he worth handing a decent deal to? This is a loaded RB class. The rookie might be the way to go.

All-22: Why CB Davon House Would Be a Fit - Birds 24/7
House is not great in run support, but he's not a liability either. And he's a sound tackler in coverage. House has all the tools to be a quality starting cornerback in the Eagles' scheme. He's young, has good size, can play man coverage and has shown flashes of being a really good player. In a perfect world, the Eagles would be able to sign Byron Maxwell and House. But if the bidding for Maxwell gets too rich for their liking, don't be surprised if the Birds quickly shift their attention to bringing House in as a starter.

Chip Kelly's plan like Belichick's, sans Brady - Inquirer
Trying to figure out Chip Kelly's plan for the Eagles is like trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle whose 1,000 pieces have been strewn and hidden about the house. You have to know where to search just to find the pieces themselves, and it will take a while before you have any idea what the picture is supposed to look like.

Porter: Chip Is Starting To Build His Dynasty, Just Like Bill And Pete Did - CBS Philly
Only three NFL coaches have complete control of all personnel decisions: New England’s Bill Belichick, Seattle’s Pete Carroll, and Philadelphia’s own Chip Kelly. That’s desirable company for Kelly to be in, considering the success of the other two. Kelly, of course, isn’t quite there yet. Yet.

Greg Cosell's analysis: Breaking down the Eagles-Bills trade - Yahoo!
The Philadelphia Eagles are a fascinating team this offseason, and their big trade this week makes them even more interesting. Let’s assume Eagles coach Chip Kelly wants to draft University of Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. That’s a reasonable assumption, considering all that has been said about it. What that ultimately means is that if the Eagles have any chance of moving up to draft Mariota, they have to give up draft picks, and likely draft picks from this season. A team positioned high enough in the draft for the Eagles to take Mariota will want to get better right away.

What does Eagles shakeup mean for Jeremy Maclin? - CSN Philly
Madness. Among others, Todd Herremans, Darren Sproles and Emmanuel Acho all had thoughts on the madness. And now, along with many other questions, we’re left to wonder what Jeremy Maclin makes of all this.

Eagles A Strong Sell In Free Agency - PE.com
This is an off-season of stages, and we are upon another: Starting Saturday NFL teams can start their sales pitches to players scheduled to be unrestricted free agents on March 10. We take a pause from the recent spate of official roster adjustments -- four veterans released and one veteran signed -- and consider what is directly ahead for the Eagles.

The best bargains in NFL free agency - SB Nation
We all know the big names that'll get huge dollars when free agency gets underway on Tuesday, but Matt Ufford digs a little deeper to find the hidden gems that could provide the most bang for your team's buck.
