Adam Schefter was the first to break the story per usual.

Yep, you read that right. Alonso will be traded to Philadelphia in exchange for running back LeSean McCoy. He will be reunited with Chip Kelly and about 30 of his former college teammates. Eagles fans may not fancy the trade upon first glance but I view it as a proactive one. With the running back position now being regarded as the most expendable in all of football, and with McCoy's humungous salary, it makes sense. However, the Eagles best offensive player at the moment is…Riley Cooper.

After briefly scanning through Bleeding Green Nation, the reaction from Eagles fans hasn't been positive. I think Jordan Selmer sums up the overall vibe over there.

Fuck this I'm sorry but this Oregon bias is ridiculous and proven with this move

The dude is fucking coming off of a hug injury fuck this

There you have it. What's your reaction to the trade?
