The Los Angeles Rams stole headlines on Monday by making a blockbuster trade for Denver Broncos edge rusher Von Miller. The Rams are plainly pushing their chips all in, giving up two Working day 2 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft to total the go. The Rams now have a protection that options Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Donald, and Miller. Fairly insane.
This trade unquestionably isn’t great news for the Philadelphia Eagles’ odds of competing for the Tremendous Bowl this calendar year. Of course, that was by no means a very likely expectation in any case.
Nevertheless, this trade IS excellent information for the Eagles when it will come to their chances of producing the playoffs. The Birds will not have to facial area Miller when they vacation to participate in the Broncos in Week 10. That game figures to be extra winnable now.
Playoffs? Yeah, I completely get it. You might not want to hear about a postseason force considering the team is 3-5 and is not necessarily again on monitor just due to the fact they roundhouse kicked the Detroit Lions.
But offered how the NFC playoff image is best weighty (contrary to the AFC), it’s not unthinkable to imagine the Eagles as a seventh seed. The 4-4 Carolina Panthers are now in that spot and they’re rather uninspiring with Sam Darnold at the helm. The other groups proper powering the Panthers and in advance of the Eagles: the Minnesota Vikings (just misplaced to COOPER Rush), the San Francisco 49ers (Jimmy G ain’t scaring nobody), and the Atlanta Falcons (the Eagles blew them out).
The Eagles have one particular of the less difficult remaining schedules in the NFL. On paper, at minimum. And the Miller trade only serves to help their odds of profitable in two months.
