E-mail Philadelphia Eagles are on a long week Cheap Mike Wallace Jersey , which means we get to catch up and re-calibrate some opinions. Thats what we did on The Kist & Solak Show #27, where we take a deep dive into the coaches film of the 34-13 stomping of the New York Giants to see if it was just as impressive a win as it was when watching it live (hint: it was).Carson Wentz had a classic Wentz type game, throwing for 278 yards and 3 touchdowns, but is he back? Yeah, it sure looks like it, and the film backs that up. We dig into his play and the bounce back game for the offensive line, which was not perfect but a step above its recent struggles.On the defensive side of the ball we shout out Treyvon Hester, who according to Pro Football Focus recorded 2 run stops and 2 pressures on only 15 snaps. Fletcher Cox and Michael Bennett are up to their usual antics of being incredible at football, plus Derek Barnett is proving to be an excellent run defender. All that and how Jim Schwartz totally redeemed himself with a creative game-plan that led to Odell Beckham Jr.s second worst stat line against the Eagles.Stream it on the media player below or click here if the player doesnt load. FLY EAGLES FLY!Should the Eagles have interest in Josh Gordon? The Cleveland Browns made some big news on Saturday evening by surprisingly announcing theyre releasing Josh Gordon. But it appears they might not be releasing the 27-year-old after all. NFL insider Adam Schefter is reporting the Browns will actually be trading Gordon and Ian Rapoport says up to five teams are interested in acquiring him.With Philadelphia looking into wide receiver help recently Jason Peters Jersey , its only fair to ask: Should the Eagles take a shot on Gordon?The case for Josh GordonGordon is certainly an intriguing talent. At 6-3, 225 pounds, he boasts a good blend of size and athleticism. He had an incredible 2013 campaign with Cleveland when he logged 87 receptions for a whopping 1,646 yards (18.9 average!) and nine receiving touchdowns. He also rushed for 88 yards on five attempts that year. Gordon accomplished those numbers despite having the likes of Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden, and Brian Hoyer as his quarterbacks that year. If there are any doubts about his talent, which I doubt there are, just watch his highlights.Now for the part when the Eagles come in. Theyve obviously been looking receiver help recently. The Eagles showed interest in the following wide outs this week: Corey Coleman (signed with the Patriots), Breshad Perriman Cheap Derek Barnett Jersey , Kamar Aiken (signed with the Eagles), and Shane Wynn. Coleman and Perriman are worth highlighting as former first-round picks who flamed out with the teams that originally drafted them. Gordons situation isnt identical to theirs, of course, but its not totally dissimilar to that mold. The Eagles are interested in receiver help since their current corps isnt in great shape. Their current group of receivers combined for a mere 43 receiving yards on nine receptions (a putrid 4.7 yards per reception) in Week 1. Projected No. 1 receiver Alshon Jeffery returned to practice this week but he still hasnt been cleared for contact drills. Mack Hollins isnt eligible to return to the active roster until after Week 8 since he was placed on injured reserve. Shelton Gibson, who is questionable for Sundays game, popped up on the injury report with a knee injury. If he cant play, the Eagles will be down to the following receivers against the Buccaneers: Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, DeAndre Carter http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-nick-foles-jersey , and the aforementioned Aiken. Not ideal.Adding Gordon at a low-risk cost feels like the kind of move reigning NFL Executive of the Year Howie Roseman would make. The cap-strapped Eagles are in position to take a risk on Gordons affordable $790,001 cap hit this year. Not to mention that hes set to be a restricted free agent after this season, which means he should be relatively cheap and easy to retain for at least one more year beyond 2018. Again, if the cost is low, why not take a risk on Gordon?The case against Josh GordonAlthough talented, Gordon is clearly troubled. Hes played in just 11 out of 65 possible regular season games since the 2014 season. Gordon missed two entire seasons after being suspended for violating the leagues substance-abuse policy and then checking himself into a rehabilitation facility. After being patient with him for so long, the Browns finally decided theyre done with him. There are a number of reasons why that appears to be the case. A sampling:Gordon is just way too unreliable for the Eagles to give up any kind of significant resources to acquire him. And even though Philadelphias receiving corps situation might seem dire, all hope is not lost. Jeffery is expected to be back sooner than later. Hollins should be ready to play after Week 8. Wallace was held without a catch in Week 1, yes http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-corey-clement-jersey , but the speedy vet ran two of the top 10 fastest routes in the league per Sheil Kapadia. Agholor had a very strong training camp and theres reason to believe hell be more effective than he was against Atlanta. Carter and Gibson had good summers as well; they earned their roster spots. I think the Eagles can ultimately get by with the pass catchers they already have. The verdictAgain, if the Eagles can acquire Gordon for very little risk (like a sixth-round pick), then I guess sure, why not.Ultimately, though, I think the idea of Gordon is much more tantalizing than the reality of him. How can a team truly trust hes not going to get suspended for violating the leagues conduct policy once again? Hes skating on very, very thin ice. I think too often fans get obsessed with the idea of their team getting a steal. We see this in the draft every year with players falling lower than expected. Sometimes taking a chance on those guys works out. But there are many times when it just doesnt and in hindsight it wasnt hard to see why teams passed on those guys. Its fun to think about the Eagles adding Gordon at a low cost and him coming in and being this awesome weapon for the reigning Super Bowl champs. But I just think thats much more fantasy than it is reality. Besides, I think there are teams even more desperate for receiver help than the Eagles out there. Cant you just see the Cowboys going after Gordon? And then him ultimately not working out there just like a number of other troubled players theyve take chances on?
