Anquan Boldin Is Roy Williams

Actually we all know that Boldin is a better WR than Williams. Just look at the numbers...it's not even a close comparison. Such facts should mean the end of the cries to bring Boldin to Philadelphia this off-season via a trade.

Thank you Jerry Jones, you have screwed us Eagles' fans (just one more reason to hate the Dallas Cowboys). Why? Well if Roy Williams requires a team to give up picks in the 1st, 3rd, 6th, 7th rounds, plus a $45 million contract (with $20 million guaranteed) how much do you think it will cost to pry a WR with Boldin's ability?

The answer...more than the draft pick hoarding, salary cap saving Eagles are willing to fork over. So rumors of Boldin coming to Philly may make for good headlines in these long winter months, but the reality is that when training camp rolls around in August Curtis and Jackson will still be #1 and #2 on the depth chart.

You can do a lot worse than Jackson and Curtis at 1 and 2 though (see Tennessee, Miami, Jacksonville, Oakland, Chicago, San Fransisco, Minnesota)

That's great, if we're shooting for the Eagles to be as good as Jacksonville, Oakland, Chicago, San Fran, and Minnesota...which I am guessing we aren't.
