    Eagles Splash in FA

    Eagles Make Kenny Philips Highest paid player ever in the OMFL, Moments Later they also Landed Aaron Ross

    Coach Vishal said " it wasnt planned this way, we targeted both players and really wanted to add one, so we decide we would make strong bids and end up with one, maybe too strong , now i will have to make some tough moves going foward but i expect minimal change in our starting lineups but our Depth is our weakness",

    Phillips contract = Barry Zito contract. Good luck on him living up to expectations just not against the Dolphins this year. =-)

    When you got the Dolphins and Pats on your schedule you need all hands on deck.

    Eh, it isn't too bad, I was looking at your stratagy, you only seem to be 7-8 players away with about 4 cap points. a few more proper cuts, you'll be fine... Just looks like your high end draft picks might not end up worth their weight in dirt. lol.

    There will be no dumping of draft picks allowed just because you are in cap trouble. Just an FYI.

    if its a fair trade he can dump them. btw, dont forget to check out the new system on what rookies will cost you, because the first round doesnt go by overall, it goes by draft position.

    last season, if I remember correctly, most of the top bids were at least in the 30s, nothing like these ridiculous high 40s and 60s

    Think the bidding is higher because this will be the last season of this game. That is also why so many draft choices are changing hands as well some teams are going for it now as opposed to thinking long term. Just my opinion...

    365, i was incorrect the other day.
    Also, we should be able to get 2 seasons in before we kickoff Madden11!
    Also again, the bids are much lower than last year, last year they were almost all in the high 30s and 40's, and this year there has only been a few players go that high.
