NGT: Article on Eagles DE's on bubble

John in CharlotteNC : 8/28/2008 8:17 am
Interesting group of players, and their roster status.

link - ( New Window )
RIZZBIZZ : 8/28/2008 8:24 am : link
worth a look.
I think  
dgirard4 : 8/28/2008 8:34 am : link
McDougle would be a steal ... especially since he would be more familiar with our defense coming from JJ defense
i swear  
MTDizzle : 8/28/2008 8:36 am : link
i read somewhere yesterday that Mcdougle was IRed....hopefully not I would love for us to acquire him off of waivers.
dgirard4 : 8/28/2008 8:38 am : link
No waivers ... he becomes a Free Agent because of how long he has been in the league ... He gets to pick the team he signs with ... Hopefully us having Spags factors in his decision
Can we please stop with all of this love for Jerome McDougle?  
eclipz928 : 8/28/2008 8:50 am : link
He's been in the league for 5 years now and hasn't accomplished anything, along with being injury-prone. And when is the last time the Eagles ever cut a player that amounted to anything on another team (not counting T.O.)?

The Giants are not that desperate for a DE that they would pick up just any scrub off of the street. Tuck will be fine, Kiwi will be fine, and I'd personally take someone like Renaldo Wynn over McDougle or any other piece of garbage that the Eagles would decide to leave by the curb.

Please, let's stop getting into a frenzy over what DE's will be available - there will be no one out there, even after cuts, worth getting remotely excited about. We're going to miss Osi, but the Giants are not in as bad of shape as some of you think.
Here's a probably unanswerable question, but  
Montreal Man : 8/28/2008 8:54 am : link
let's say we had Osi still, and Stray, who among the remaining DE's would McDougal be comparable to? Who would be the McDougal WE would get rid of to complete the roster?
I'm asking because I don't remember having noticed his play and am trying to get a comparison to the guys I have noticed more, namely, ours.

I watched a little of the Eagle/Pats game replay last night....I'll tell you I think the Eagles got help in the draft this year.

There's a MLB named Hayes?(51) who was ballin' and WR Jackson seemed to know his way around. This year was not your typical draft for Philly.

I think the Giants would contact Mcdougle if he got released,  
Jim in Forest Hills : 8/28/2008 9:07 am : link
as would many other teams. I don't see him coming here, the only thing is if he loves Spags, otherwise go somewhere you have a chance to start in a year or two.
on second thought  
MTDizzle : 8/28/2008 9:13 am : link
this guy is more injury prone than Kevin Nash....and he's almost 30, Maybe were just better off with Wynn/Tollefson
blue42 : 8/28/2008 9:14 am : link
on this defense would be a good way to jump start your career.
I would think we'd be an attractive choice.
I would think any Eagle DE the Giants show  
ZogZerg : 8/28/2008 9:36 am : link
interest in would sign with us to for "revenge" purposes since they would play the Eagles twice.
If McDougle  
AcidTest : 8/28/2008 9:38 am : link
is really having a good camp then I would definitely make an inquiry. And from his perspective, the Giants could be a good place to restart his career. He would be the third end, but would also at times be working when one or both of Tuck and Kiwi are on the field. Since either or both of them are likely to draw double teams, McDougle would get only one blocker, a fact which might allow him to get more sacks, hurries, etc. then he otherwise would. This would increase his value in the marketplace if he moved on after this season. Not to mention the fact that he would be able to play the Eagles twice a year.
Jump starting your career/starting.....  
Giantfan in skinland : 8/28/2008 9:41 am : link
I think the point about this being an attractive destination is dead on. We have a coordinator that the players rave about (and in this case, a former coach in the same system the player in discussion came from). He's being brought in for depth, but also to challenge for a spot in a rotation that used the third DE EXTENSIVELY last year.

On top of that,it means playing in New York, for the superbowl champs, and the added bonus of getting philly twice.

I would think we'd be a VERY attractive spot for him if we're interested.
They really dropped the ball with Tony Hunt.  
j_rud : 8/28/2008 9:44 am : link
It was a head scratcher of a pick because you just knew they werent going to use him. What a waste of a 3rd rounder.
jaenyg : 8/28/2008 9:50 am : link
Kawika Mitcell type one year deal that benefits both sides of the party
Signing McDougle wouldn't be an alternative to Tollefson and Wynn  
BSIMatt : 8/28/2008 10:45 am : link
it would just improve our depth. Knock Tollefson down to 5th DE where he belongs.
Montreal Man : 8/28/2008 11:06 am : link
and keeping everyone fresh. Do it if we can.
Why should we stop with the McDougle love??  
Curtis in MD : 8/28/2008 11:13 am : link
Its an issue. We should talk about it.
Two Words  
DDBB : 8/28/2008 11:16 am : link
Dave Tollefson......the second coming of Frank Ferrara??
Jerome McDougle?  
Joey in VA : 8/28/2008 11:20 am : link
Really? Why don't we drool all over Mitch Marrow and Mike Mamula while we're at it.
God, remember when we played  
Slick : 8/28/2008 11:50 am : link
Hammer at DE for a year or 2? I miss that big fella...
Here I have been  
Mike fr Warwick : 8/28/2008 12:05 pm : link
hoping all out he would get another contract(reworked) and stick with the Eagles now that Parker or Thomas (whatever his name is) was hurt. Contract with the Eagles.
