      Just go through the names. You know all them. AD, Jamaal, etc.
      I think the contributions of Marshawn Lynch, Frank Gore and Ray Rice to their respective teams over the past few years make your argument very shaky. Do you know the last time a year's league-leading passer won the SB in that same year? I'll tell you. Never. Does that mean QBs aren't important? (also, not to nitpick, but the last time a league-leading RB won the SB in that same year was TD in 1998. Not 22 or 23 years ago but 17. )

      Also, your cap-space argument would be more compelling if the Eagles were cap-strapped. But they aren't. They had something like $40 million in cap space BEFORE they made this deal. Making cap-freindly deals are nice, but not if they aren't necessary and rob you of an elite payer.

      No, what this is is Chip Kelly thinking he's smarter than the rest of the world, thinking that he only needs his own college guys to win in almost an Spurrier-like way. And I'm not sure that's the case. He took an offense that was top ten six of the previous seven seasons and made it ... a top ten offense. His defense, on the other hand, went from being a top half defense all of the previous seven seasons to 29th his first year and 28th this year. Frankly, the man doesn't coach defense, so maybe he's hoping his old college LB can save him, despite the fact that he's now got a bad wheel. We all know all to well how a bad knee can de-rail a career.

      This was a real head-scratcher of a move for the Eagles. If they were hurting for cap space and trying to rebuild MAYBE I could see jettisoning a 26-year-old elite RB for a 25 year-old LB coming off knee surgery like this, but even then I'd demand a pick or two as well. The ONLY way (if I were an Eagle fan) I could justify liking this move would be to rationalize it away by thinking Chip Kelly's A Genius who can make seemingly completely irrational moves which turn out to be brilliant.

      And that may be the case, but I'm not convinced.
