Eagles RT reoported to be suspended

Eagles RT reoported to be suspended 


Reportedly  for 4 games due to PID's....

Hmmmm.  I always thought it was a little strange that he went from a  HS QB, to a University TE, and then in a span of a year or two to a University LT.

Makes me like Justin Pugh even more.

Of course he could have been taking nothing more then something from some place like GNC that happens to be on the "bad" list. But, we bust on our picks for scratching their bums in the wrong way--and this guy was last year's overall  #4 pick.

He under-performed for them last year, or at least didn't have as easy a transition as,possible.
. I wonder if Pugh has a great upside and how that draft will look five years from now. Last year at this time they were moving Pugh around and comments were that he was being abused by Moore and sundry.
I was critical of a Giant pick for the first time and, of course, the kid proved me wrong.

When you think of it...
Pugh (at this writing at least) looks better than top five pick Johnson; they took Graham ( a def. End) and left us JPP; they gave up a pick to jump up for Michlin and left us Nicks, they gave up cap space to sign Stephen Smith and the safety with microsurgery.
Ahhh but they've knocked us out of the playoffs twice so maybe it evens out. That strange "wind" game when Eli played so badly and we would have had the dome team cards at home on the following week and a Pitt team we'd already beaten in their house. Hmmm

I wondered about Pugh as well, but I did think it was an "honest" pick at the time--i.e. the draft is a crap shoot he seemed to be a reasonable/safe pick.  That and what the heck do I know about evaluating talent?  Personally, I kindof think that in five years we're going to be screaming for mgmt. to re-sign the guy--probably not because we perceive him as going to Canton on roller skates but because we'll see him as a solid, dependable. Giant football player--maybe even more. . .

Sorry to the board that I didn't know Lane Johnson's name.  I can't remember our 2nd round draft picks' name Winston????? -----, but I have a really GOOD feeling about him. Just a gut feeling.  Hope I'm right.

As for Johnson, too much weight too fast. I'm impressed with Chip Kelly but Johnson could be his first major boo-boo.  (Well second if you count LeSean Jackson's release)
