    Sproles wouldve been perfect on our team.
    Give me 1 super bowl championship over 100 division titles ANY day.

    Show class, be a Giants fan.

      New Orleans acquired a 2014 fifth-round pick from Philadelphia in exchange for RB Darren Sproles.

        Yes but we have the same amount of superbowl wins as the Eagles, Skins and Cowboys have playoff wins combined since 2007. Which is better?
        WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

            yes it was tough enough last season. now they add Sproles to the mix... speed speed speed
            Football has been very, very good to us.
            After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
            But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

            # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

            1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
            2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
            3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
            4-New York Giants!!!
            5-NE
            Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

              Love the move.

              Lower McCoy's touches and incorporate a guy who isn't exactly in his prime.

              These are the kinds of moves that I just don't fear. Dominant pass rusher or DT signed? Okay, you got better. An actual number 1 WR for the Eagles? They'd get better. An older luxury player that's not even as good as your current guy? Let him eat up the cap space.

                Not worried at all, to me the move makes no sense at all... they have Mccoy, and I bet he is not happy about this.

                  I agree with everything you just said, I would much rather see the ball in Sproles hands then Mccoy.

                      On paper, it's a good move for the Eagles because it gives them another weapon on offense. But McCoy is still the engine that makes the Eagles offense run. If you can try to limit McCoy's impact on the field you slow the Eagles down.
                      One of these teams is not like the others

                        I've overreacted to Jets/Eagles off-season moves in the past, I fell for "Dream Team" hook/line/sinker. Pissed and moaned about the Giants lack of big moves in FA. That season ended with the Lombardi in the NYG trophy case, so I'm gonna bite my lip for now...

                          sounds like we might have to get creative with Will Hill, Beason will get burned every time in coverage. Could be a Westbroke vs. Pierce situation.....

                            He is. He was really frustrating to watch last year (as a Saints fan). He was noticeably slower and it really limited what we could do on offense. The burst simply isn't there anymore. I've always been a fan of his and was excited when he came to New Orleans and produced (though never as a KR/PR like I'd hoped), but last year it was pretty evident that the decline was starting.

                            Any touches he takes away from McCoy is a net gain. But I suspect he'll be split out a bit more or used catching passes out of the backfield. He was a nice option on the wheel routes, but he wasn't effective in the screen game consistently. He can be a decent option, but he's not the threat/weapon that he's been in the past.

                            The NFC East shouldn't feel all that threatened.

                            And the Malcolm Jenkins signing should have the NFC East elated. So glad to see him go.

                              That's almost exactly how I see it, too. I'll be honest, I'm not sure if it's clouding my judgment on this move, but it just feels like yet another gimmick from the Eagles.

                              Mobile QB!
                              Blitz ALL the time!
                              Wild Cat formation with Vick!
                              DREAM TEAM!
                              Chip Kelly, Team speed, no huddle. Go. GO. GOO!!
                              Back field speed overload!

                              Just... build a team that can line up and compete traditionally and you may go far, Eagles. Build a hard nosed team that can blow people up off the line of scrimmage without some kind of new crazy scheme. Get some depth in important positions like DL and OL to form a nice rotation. And get a legitimate number 1, big bodied receiver that can allow DJax to be the weapon that he is.

                                Kind of reminds me of when we acquired Deion back in the 90s. I expected him to be a dynamic return guy. He had some flashes, but overall I just wasn't impressed.

                                Anyway, thanks for the input Saints fan. I was amazed at the job Ryan did with your defense last year. I criticized him in the offseason, but it seems as though Jerry was the dumb one (yet again).
