Their contracts are basically the same for the next two years. Wentz is several years younger, so in theory you could sustain something with him on your roster. 

 

Stafford is higher on my list, though.

I did read Stafford was only being paid 9.5 Mill next year though. That is by Spotrac.

Don't know why people think the only thing an OC does is call plays...

If Marcus Brady is a no go, I would not be opposed to consider Marty Mornhinweg.   During his career as an offensive coordinator, Mornhinweg's offenses have finished 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th,

Seems like it’s McDaniels’ job to back out of. Good to have Sirianni as a backup option.

well man out of the 8 plays you show, there are 12 verts.  That’s a lot.  I don’t know why you’d run mesh without a clear out.  I wasn’t aware that was done.

 

In general most pass plays have at least one vertical option, right? Doesn't mean the vertical route is the first read, or that you have to wait for the vertical route to develop before someone else is open.

Salary. He has a $10m roster bonus and a $500k workout bonus. His total cap hit to a new team would be $20m in 2021. Assuming he doesn't get a new deal.

Thanks for the info, I am still trying to learn how these contracts work lol.

Which begs the question... If you trade for him, do you prefer him to stay on his current contract or would you be willing to give him more money and extend the contract with 2 more years?

I'd prefer to wait until after 2021 before guaranteeing him more money.

Same, what if he demands new contract as a condition for the trade? 

 

He doesn't have a no trade clause, so I don't know how much leverage he has. But negotiations can be had if that's what he wants.

Ouch.... That's all nerves right there. He's usually much more clear and concise than that.

I'm sure he'll get it together. He better, Philly fans will eat their own lol. 

He's got a tough job in front of him.

Agreed. He’s not used to attention like that, the first time is always the hardest with interviewing. Still better than Gase’s Jets introduction.

Sirriani says they want a smarter football team.  So to accomplish that, he wants to simplify the system and playbook to make it easier to learn, so the talent can take over.  LOL.  I know what he means, but that's a strange way to word it.

 

Sounds like in his first professional presser, he's already laying the groundwork for Hurts to take over.

 

A decision objectively made of course.

For whatever it’s worth....

 

Nick Sirianni will not be the first NFL HC to take over a franchise and simplify things so players do more playing and less thinking. 
 

Perhaps he didn’t say it all that well, but what he’s inherited is not uncommon.  Some coaches overthink things and players don’t perform as well as expected.   Too much thinking, not enough playing.

We were a victim to over thinking quite a few times this year, if we are being honest.

 

Wish Nick, nothing but success.

You’ll get no argument from me on that.  
 

But the distinction id make is the over-thinking we experienced came from decisions made on the sidelines during a game. 
 

And not the system we ran forthe players to execute.   I think the system was fine, even when the in-game decisions made seemed like real head scratchers.

Yeah no doubt. Definitely was from a coaching aspect.

I was thinking that Philly's problem is that they are old and were injured, not necessarily too young and inexperienced.  So the old vets grasping the O that's been there for 4 years wouldn't be what he meant.

 

I think it was directed at Hurts.  So it would make it easier for him to win the starting job by playing well with a simplified O.

 

Because Wentz is going to be traded.....

You realize the league wide perception is that Sirianni was viewed as the next best thing to Reich, so the Eagles hired him to fix Wentz, not trade Wentz? 

Yeah I don’t get the assumption that Wentz is available, Sirianni went to Eagles to rejuvenate Wentz’s career not trade him to colts.

    • Row is an interesting guy. I like his resume, but it is a bit confusing.   His latest stop (App St) was only a year, but if anyone is interested in their scheme, Here's a decent read. https://matchquarters.com/2020/07/06/mq-film-study-app-state-vs-unc-2019/   Hard to know exactly what scheme he feels at home in given his career hops. Regardless, I'm sure he's here to carry out Flus's scheme. I know App St played 2 high and also rip/liz (similar to us). The front was different though (3-4 with anchor/dog).   My biggest hope is that he either is successful at transitioning RYS from a press man guy to a zone guy, or finds a new role for him, be it as NB, dime, or S. Would also love to see what he can do with Rodgers.
    • I think Wentz should be happy to be a Colt.  He shouldn’t need to ask to wear number 11.  I know he asked Pitman and was shot down and took it like a champ. I appreciate that Wentz didn’t scream Im a Diva and I have to have number 11.  But Wentz performance last season was awful.  Doesn’t matter if philly WR sucks or there Oline sucks etc..  Wentz just needs to put on whatever the number/Jersey is handed to him and go out there and show the world you are an Elite QB and That Philly was the problem.  
    • I don’t care what formation we run.  I would like to see the Carson Wentz that comes to the line and audibles plays left and right to confuse the defense.  I’m not sure if he changed plays at all during that MVP run year he had with Philly but that’s what I want to see!
    • I would not be surprised if we draft his latest project at CB on the 3rd day of the draft.....  Shemar Jean-Charles   "2020: First-team All-American by Walter Camp Football Foundation (first FBS first-team All-American in school history) ... Second-team All-American and the Sun Belt Player of the Year by PFF College … Second-team All-American by Sporting News and third-team All-American via Phil Steele ... Semifinalist for the Bednarik Award (nation’s top defender) and Thorpe Award (nation’s top defensive back) … First-team All-Sun Belt … Led nation as a senior with 16 PBUs and 17 passes defended (with one interception) in 12 games as a senior … Started all 12 games at cornerback and intercepted a pass at Texas State … Recorded 37 tackles, tying a career high of eight against Charlotte and posting six more against Arkansas State … ESPN’s No. 3 breakout player in 2020 (behind BYU QB Zach Wilson and Alabama QB Mac Jones) … According to PFF, had the rare accomplishment of recording a higher forced incompletion rate (34.6%) than catch rate allowed (32.7%) ... Targeted 35 times in single coverage and allowed only five catches while forcing 18 incompletions, according to PFF … Part of a tandem with Shaun Jolly, helped App State have the best CB tandem in college according to PFF College, as the Mountaineers had an FBS-leading 74 passes defended … Part of only FBS team that allowed its opponents to complete less than 50 percent of its passes (47.9 percent) … During regular season, second in the FBS in yards per coverage snap allowed on the outside … PFF College’s national Defensive MVP of the Week after recording a career-high four pass breakups, eight tackles and one forced fumble against Charlotte … Recorded three PBUs at ULM and two apiece against Marshall, Campbell and Louisiana."
    • I sat in endzone couple times.  It's nice when the offense is coming toward you inside the RedZone....but can't say I liked it when the offense is moving away from you on opposite side of field over 100 yards away.   But I did see Andre Rison's TD vs dolphins in Miami. We were in endzone and colts were driving toward us and rison scored a TD that was voted Top 100 TD's ever, I think. And we saw it in  person not too far away from our seats.   I think I seen another top 100 td, but can't remember for sure, lol. I think it was a Ricky Williams run?  Such a long time ago
