Lol....wen u write about a playmaking saftey, Ed Reed tends to come to mind alot...
I can understand. I'm an LSU fan so I am familiar with Eric. But Ed is also from here so either one works .
Speaking of safeties, Kenny Vaccaro looks like he's going to be a great player and not that Tampa is an offensive juggernaut but the Saints held them to 7 points, 285 yards and forced 2 turnovers. Pretty nice performance once again.
In the annals of NFL what-ifs, here are two gigantic, NFC-altering ones.
According to a report from Adam Schefter, the Eagles were on the verge of trading a second-round pick for Colin Kaepernick before the 2012 draft. This was when the 49ers were coming off a conference championship appearance, and were prepared to go forward with Alex Smith, so Kaepernick was expendable.
Why didn't the trade go through? Schefter says the Eagles decided instead to take Russell Wilson in the 2012 draft. Philadelphia "geared their whole draft around" selecting Wilson in the third round, league sources said. But Seattle torpedoed that by taking Wilson 13 spots before Philly's pick, forcing the Eagles to settle for Nick Foles.
