I know that criticizing anything Sean Taylor related is now taboo, but I always felt that laying out a punter in the Pro Bowl was total dick move.
Update – Had a bad link there initially… now fixed.
The Redskins can’t let Rocky McIntosh get away.
Title is pretty much all you need.
Come on, Kev… Deadspin? I’m not that negative on the Skins.
(Eagles, Giants and Redskins news after the jump)…
The crux of this is that the Eagles’ players might re-think their loyalty with Reid for disassociating himself with the player-backing NFLCA statement made about a week ago, which is a major stretch. For one, how many Eagles players are even paying attention to Reid’s comments… at all? And secondly, just because Reid (or any other coach for that matter) distanced himself from a statement which he had no part of issuing doesn’t mean he’s a puppet for the owners – I can certainly understand not wanting someone speaking on your behalf without authorization.
Can we just get to free agency already?
He’s right, although I’m not holding my breath. I think even more important to the Eagles than getting a deal done for Kolb is getting the 15 or so 2nd year guys and 10 rookies into camp. These are guys that have never had a full NFL offseason, and it’s like half the roster.
The Eagles seem to have a lot less participation in these offseason workouts than a number of other teams, including the Redskins and Cowboys in the NFL East.
The other side of the “Burress wants to go to Philly” report above.
I would have thought the Eagles and Giants would have been the 2 teams that seem to have their act together a little more this offseason. Oops.
As a self-proclaimed expert on Shawn Andrews, I agree with Ed that the Giants should cut him.
“In the first eight games of the 2010 season, with Wade Phillips as their head coach, the Cowboys ran the ball 169 times and threw 326 passes.” Valid point, although the all three of those backs rushed for fewer than 4 yards per carry during that stretch, not to mention they were often playing from behind, so abandoning the run is understandable. I think it’s more about fixing the OL (something they finally addressed this offseason) than figuring out the right formula of how to use the backs.
Try harder, or better yet, just end the lockout. Until then, shut up.
“The top five consists of some of the usual suspects: Green Bay, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, New England and Philadelphia. Philadelphia? Yeah, ok, they’ve been consistently in the hunt for a Super Bowl over the last decade or so, but that Trophy Case is still empty!”
