@_Lexluger asks: Does Carson Wentz gets overall more tds (passing rushing) than the eagles whole DLine group gets sacks this year?

@GLCrandall asks: What's the most exciting play/thing you witnessed during minicamp?

@JuanLGalaviz asks: Are we done at CB this off-season? And can we come to terms that Jason Kelce and Mychal Kendircks are staying one more year? 

@Gravity702 asks: How much stake are you putting in to these OTA, Training Camp in terms of potential signs of growth for Wentz?

@Gravity702 asks: What's you over/under for games Jason Peters will play this year?

@notmyrealemails asks: Is the Jason Peters extension more about lack of LT talent in draft or more about near term competitive window? If he is still pro bowl level...keep him!

@MattGrumbrecht asks: If you could do another job that didn't have anything to do with what you do now what would it be? Follow up. What was the worst job you ever had?
