The Eagles Are Once Again Being Linked To A Deshaun Watson Trade

Another report stating the Philadelphia Eagles have interest in acquiring Texans star QB Deshaun Watson. Mike Fisher reported this morning that a trade can happen anytime after the draft. The obvious roadblock in preventing a trade is Watson’s legal issues. Watson is currently facing 21 allegations of sexual assault. One case has been dismissed but we are a long ways away from this issue being resolved. Innocent or not this process will be very exhausting. It will be long and won’t be solved anytime soon.

The Eagles continue to monitor the situation which shows the teams interest and willingness to acquire Watson. Jeff McLane dropped a report 2 or 3 weeks ago stating Eagles GM Howie Roseman ‘is willing to give up everything he has’ for the star QB.

While there’s obvious interest on Philly’s end, we’ve yet to here about the Texans being willing to trade the 25 year old QB. Watson has given in a formal trade request but the Texans front office isn’t budging. Before all these allegations came in, the Texans showed they had no interest in trading Watson…but we don’t know if these allegations change the teams mind. Stay tuned for more on the Watson situation and what the Eagles are willing to do.

How Far Can The Eagles Really Go?

As the Philadelphia Eagles start training camp one of the biggest questions that looms is how far can this team really go? Talent isn’t an issue with a top 10 offense and a top 10 defense. The big concern is schedule difficulty and how stacked the NFC is. The Cowboys, 49ers, Saints, Seahawks, Packers, Buccaneers, Vikings are all big threats to the Eagles. The eagles are projected to win 9-10 games and the question is will it be enough. Yea it might get a playoff birth but chances are the Eagles will have to work in the playoffs away from home. Will our secondary be able to stop the stacked offenses we will face. Or the offense be able to do enough against the amazing defenses we will play. All these questions will end of being the difference of being eliminated in the wild card round or winning a Superbowl. The Eagles also can’t lose games we are expected to win. So we will have to take care of business when it matters and not let any games we should win get away from us. The Eagles will also need to have a good balance of the running game and passing game. We also need a good balance of good offense and good defense. As week one inches closer the Eagles have to be ready to come out the gates flying as we are favorites to win 4 out of our first 6 games. We have a favorable first half of the season and need to do good so we don’t have many must wins against really good teams. Well those are the questions that the Eagles face going into the 2020 NFL season. Let’s get this thing rolling! Fly Eagles Fly!
