Well, if you have been paying attention to the situation around the nfl, you will have noticed that the Eagles are primed to take over the NFC once again. No, I don’t mean on the field(even though that would be nice), I mean when it comes to cap room. Let’s talk about the amount of room your team has compared to the Philadelphia Eagles and the rosters(amount of starters from last year to this coming year).
The Philadelphia Eagles have 21 of 22 starters back this year under contract. Donte Stallworth and his un-godly contract for his half-hearted injured talent is the only one missing. Ok, Michael Lewis and Jeff Garcia are gone too, but I would say they were backups coming into this season anyway, behind Donavan McNabb and Considine. Any hoot, The Eagles replaced Stallworth with not only a tough, very quick receiver, but a standout in the community in former Rams receiver Kevin Curtis. So, the Eagles have roughly 4 million dollars left under the salary cap for this year with all the starters back. So a team that had numerous injuries that would devastate any other team won their division and won a playoff game. So adding back the injuried players and a good draft(I am a little spoiled since the drafts of late have been really good) should make this team in a great situation for the year with their cap numbers.
The thing that makes everyone here at salary cap land excited is the Philadelphia Eagles cap room in 2008. We are talking 21 of 22 projected starters (L.J. Smith the only one) under contract and the Eagles in the neighborhood of 25 million UNDER the salary cap. Are you kidding me? The Eagles are the class of the NFL when it comes to managing the cap. Does this mean championships. Well, no. It just means the Eagles will be competitve for a long time(in nfl standards, I would guess five more years). So, If you are a Dallas Cowboys fan, A NewYork Giants fan, or A Washington Redskins fan(so sorry for you), you will be chasing a monster for years to come. Good luck!!
Also, is there a more dominant young offensive line in the league. You can take away my tackles of John Runyan and William “tre” Thomas and I will stack this line up against anyone. Center Jamaal Jackson(get used to that name, he is a future 5 time pro bowler), Guard Shawn Andrews (future 10 time pro bowler), Todd Herramans (Moved to right tackle and would be a future pro bowler), Max Jean-Giles (moved to Guard replacing Herramans and future pro bowler), and Tackle Winston Justice(moved to tackle replacing Thomas). This line, in my opinion, could be together for ten years or more and has the potential to be one of the lines talked about for years to come.
I also wanted to run this site by any eagles fan that wants to go to Texas to see the Cowboys play the Eagles. They do a top notch job and you will be pleased with the whole package. Dallas Cowboy football game packages.
