Ginn would be great if he were still there for your Eagles, but safety help is obvioulsy necessary. Nelson is one of my guys in this year's class, but people have to realize that he cant really tackle. He's a playmaker and has natural instincts when the ball is in the air, and would give the Eagles D some big play ability.

Ideally, the Eagles wouldn't need a safety that hits like a truck. Unfortunately, they desperately need one because their front seven can't stop the run.

Michael Lewis went too far towards hitting, and couldn't cover anyone. Considine seems to wind up on his ass after every play. It would be refreshing to see another safety who can make some plays back there with Dawkins.

It wouldn't surprise me at all to hear the Eagles are shopping Moats... what would surprise me is if anyone was actually interested. Any team that would be interested in Moats, and I'm not sure why they would be, has to assume there's a good chance he's going to get cut in training camp.

Maybe the Giants? Moats ripped them apart in 2005, his best game as a pro. And their two backs, Jacobs and Droughns, are both big guys, they could use a little, quick guy as a change-of-pace back.

Do you think the Eagles would deal with the Giants? I wonder...

I think if it's a choice between cutting Moats or getting a pick from the Giants, they'd deal with them. This all depends on whether they're really targeting an RB who can contribute in the draft.

I really dont think teams have policies about trading in division. If they wanna trade then they're going to.

In a few cases, I think organizations won't trade with other organizations. The Yanks/Sox have in the past, but I don't see it happening these days. There are other examples where extreme owners just won't OK a trade to a rival.

In this case, I doubt the Eagles have any such rules. They approach pretty much all personnel decisions with a sometimes cold business sense. If it makes sense, where the player is going is probably of little concern.

For the fans, of course, it's a different story.
