Following a brutal loss to Miami, there has been a lot of talk about whether the Eagles should just tank the rest of the way or not. I believe that they should and here’s why:⠀ ⠀ Coming into this week, the Eagles has the easiest schedule for the rest of the season. With the a Cowboys struggling it was looking like the Eagles could win the division, but then this happened. We are still one game back from the Cowboys, and we still do have a decent chance at the division, but it is time to hit the reset button and rebuild. There’s no reason to risk falling short of the playoffs in which you would probably get blow in our in the first round while also giving up your high first round pick.⠀ ⠀ We need to give JJAW, Andre Dillard, Vaitai, and Miles Sanders as many snaps as possible, develop the young players we already have on both sides of the ball and let them do what they can for the remainder of the year. With JJAW, we need to see if he can perform, because if not that could indicate the amount of receivers we should draft/add in free agency. ⠀ ⠀ Speaking of the draft, I think the Eagles should tank the rest of the season, landing the highest pick they possibly can, then trading that pick along with others to get Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb. I really like these guys. I would rather attack the receiver position through the draft because I want guys who fit Carson’s timeline and have young legs. Free agency can be for corners and other positions. You could also try and trade up for Okudah, who will be your franchise CB, then go with a receiver such as DeVonta Smith, Tyler Johnson, or Jalen Reagor in the second round. I would rather attack receiver in the first though then corner in the second. ⠀ ⠀ I will be talking more about the draft as we hopefully begin to start tanking. Let me know what you guys think about all of this- should the Eagles start tanking and if so, who do want in the draft?
