What ... just ... happened?

As the rumors continued to grow, no one really thought the Vikings would have traded for Sam Bradford. And NO ONE thought they would do it for a first round pick.

There might not have been a plan to trade Bradford like this, but the "optionality" of the roster made this possible.

The Carson Wentz era starts now, how have your expectations for this season changed?

At what point are other NFL general managers going to realize that they are probably at the wrong end of a deal when negotiating with Howie Roseman?

Why Chase Daniel shouldn’t start any games unless Wentz isn’t healthy.

Eric Rowe is still here, but this is an odd situation

If Rowe does get moved at some point … is his value only worth a Dennis Kelly type?

One surprise cut: Najee Goode

Paul Turner makes the squad! (for now)

With the conditions of the trade, are you rooting for Sammy Sleeves to head to the Super Bowl so the Eagles can get a 2018 2nd AND a 2017 1st or do you just want a 1st round pick in the 15-20 range?

This trade allows you to build around Wentz and give you a small insurance policy on him

Matt: "Imagine if the Vikings just end up being horrible and you traded Sam Bradford for the 4th overall pick ..."

John: "Well, mark this down … if that happens I am showing up to the draft buck ass naked. They can take me to jail."

With the Eagles season coming up, our sponsor, Clippit, has some great news for the BGN community.

The Sanchize is in Big D and the Cowboys might actually be in hot water for trying to signing him too early
