Default I'm going to miss you Doo-Doo

He's one of my favorite Eagles because he is such a great hitter. Totally fearless. But it's usually the FO's way to move guys who bitch about their contract. Welburn, Hollis, and Lito come to mind just to name a few. They don't like guys who aren't happy campers, especially after the Lito mess last year. Can't say as I could blame them with Sheldon. You can't have one of your leaders bad mouthing the organization.

great hitter, not great in coverage though. I'd like him back, but in my mind he is not a guy we can't live without

weird how these union delegate guys are so vocal. How'd that work out for Troy and the rest of his career when he left?

Anywho, whether we like it or not the NFL is moving more towards cover corners and safeties and away from the physical guys. That's whay Dawk is gone and a guy like Roy Williams is still available

Agreed, but loosing Dawk and Sheldon is a heck of a lot of run support. Maybe our first pick shouldl be a DT!

total agree. Losing Dawk also kills the killer instinct and forced turnovers. Abiamiri should help a bit. The LBers are younger and faster. Asante and Hanson are fast. No idea what to expect out of Jones.

with Bunkley, Patterson, and Laws....I don't think we need a DT. Though maybe a Samie Lee Hill will slip to a late pick and he could really help.

There is no doubt we may want to add a pass rushing DE, a ball hawk corner and a cover safety in this draft.

I'd still like to keep Brown. But if we can get any day 1 pick (3rd rounder?) we should do it! Corner is deep in this draft

Sheldon is staying this year. How it plays out is certainly yet to be seen but I can easily see Andy telling him (or his agent) that he will bury him if he acts up. Much as he did with Lito. Now, Lito got out as he wanted but is is yet to be seen if he hits a big payday.
Myself, I hope both sides put there egos aside and work out a deal.

I don't want Doo Doo going thru the whole season with a bad attitude. I would LIKE if they would get together and actually TALK, and see if they can't find some sort of middle ground. I like Sheldon, I like him as an Eagle, and I think he is very valuable to us. FOr me as a fan, that is pretty much all that matters.
