Reading that he might be released. If he is, what do you guys think of the Giants bringing him in? Would be a great fill in and second string guy if one of our guys goes down. We could use some depth for our interior lineman. What do you guys think?? I would like him to come in our training camp, couldn't hurt

We already have two former Eagles now to get through camp. He's a former first round pick who lost his job. I'd pass

No way. He's awful and a complete bust. The fact he was a 1st round pick just 2 years ago and isn't good enough to play on the Eagles' terrible line, tells you all you need to know.

Is there any player who gets released that doesn't prompt a thread like this?

Man, what an awful draft pick for the Eagles . . . .

I wonder if somewhere in a parallel universe there's an Eagles' message board, and someone started a thread on signing David Diehl if the Giants release him.

Do you know how hard you have to suck in order to be a 1st Round Draft Pick and get cut after year 2? I'm trying to think of 1 other 1st rounder that didn't make it to year 3...and he has no off the field issues, and seems to be an outstanding citizen.

Nevermind, don't think his back is the problem. He just isn't good at football.

That was the draft that got Reid fired, IMO.

2nd round pick they drafted Jaiquann Jarrett, who already was waived.
3rd round they drafted Curtis Marsh, who almost never plays on defense.
4th round they drafted Casey Matthews (who has been benched) and a kicker
5th round they drafted Dion Lewis who they traded to the browns, and a guard who they waived
6th round they drafted their starting center, but lost him to an ACL and MCL tear. Also drafted LB Rolle who they waived
7th round they drafted a FB and LB, both of which got waived.


And people complain about the giants drafts.

This will be a thread on the eagles boards in two years with Pugh instead of Watkins

I disagree. Watkins came into the league at 26 years old, and Pugh is coming in at 22. Pugh has some growing and "muscling up" to do, and by the time he is 26, he will have been a better player at that age than Watkins was. His ceiling is higher and his collegiate tape is better than Watkins' as well.

This is awesome! hahah

I have never seen the WHOLE Giants message board unanimously disagree on a single thread. It seems as though every single person is agaisnt this idea hahaha.

moving on to my comment: This post is ridiculous! before they start which i'm sure one of these is already out there.
- We should bring in T.O
- We should bring in Chad Ochocinco
- WE SHOULD SIGN ANY RELEASED FREE AGENT

1- article is pure speculation
2- Watkins is a bust and hasn't shown that he can be a starter in the league
3- any other trash you'd like to recycle?
