There is no time better than the present. Eagles fans are frustrated, confused, excited, and undecided.

The Philadelphia Eagles have approximately $48 million in salary cap space. That's the third largest in the National Football League, next to Tampa Bay at $61 million.

So the question is, where and how do we spend it?

I've come up with some ideas that might enlighten us all.

The first ideal investment would be in the coaching staff.

Sean McDermott's success on defense came against teams that had sub-.500 records. Jim Johnson's boots were hard to fill, and he will be hard to be replace.

There are a lot of unsigned defensive coaches in the league that would pounce on the opportunity to coach a defensive group like the Eagles.

Moreover, the release of various players this past week has created a buzz around Philadelphia, leaving fans puzzled with the state of the franchise.

My guess is the Eagles are looking for an impact player to bring in for the 2010-2011 year.

If this doesn't occur, the Eagles will most likely hold off until next year.

Overall, I feel the state of the franchise is going under a rebuilding process. Whether it's a positive direction or negative one, time will tell.

Like the old saying goes, "more money, more problems," and the Eagles organization has spent money over the past few years on big signings.

With that said, maybe it's time we watch and see what it's like to sign players with smaller roles to fill in the gaps we were lacking in previous years.
