Linky – June 7, 2011 – Reese expects Jacobs to stick with Giants

GIANTS

Giants should bring Plax back – Steve Serby, NY Post

Part of the reasoning is to keep him away from the Eagles or Jets, which is a silly premise.  You either think he can help your team, or you don’t.  You don’t go signing players because a rival team might make a run at him.

Scout: Plax will catch on, but star days behind him – Paul Schwartz, NY Post

“The scouts I’m talking to are saying he was losing his speed even before he got into the deal with the gun.”

Reese expects Jacobs to be with Giants this year – Ohm, ESPN

I haven’t completely made up my mind on whether or not Jacobs should stay on the team or not.  The money saved on Jacobs could be spent elsewhere in free agency.

Giants holding larger workout – Paul Schwartz, NY Post

Some rookies attending now, but still kinda weak, in comparison to the Skins and Cowboys.

(Cowboys, Redskins, and Eagles news after the jump)…

COWBOYS

Should the Cowboys use the no huddle more in 2011? – OCC, Blogging the Boys

Nice statistical analysis.

Lawyer: Dez Bryant still owes more than $600K to Texas jeweler – nfl.c0m

Oof.

Eagles SS heavy on experience – Nick Eatman, Cowboys Mothership

Q isn’t playing special teams anymore, but otherwise Nick mostly gets it right.  I think Q would actually be a great fit in Dallas, although I’d hate to see it.

Cowboys draft pick: DeMarco Murray – Calvin Watkins, ESPN

Interview with Murray’s RB coach at OU.

REDSKINS

Redskins taking some seats out in favor of party decks at FedEx Field – Rich Campbell, Washington Times

Somehow, some way, even though a “party deck” sounds fun, I can’t help but jump to the conclusion that this will be a project aimed at putting more money in Dan Snyder’s pockets.

Reason #12,343,434 I’m not a Cowboys fan – Kevin Ewoldt, Hogs Haven

Video, and a must watch.

Redskins usually aggressive in free agency -Gary Fitzgerald, Redskins Mothership

A look at all the Redskins free agent signings since 2000.  Gary is comically under-critical in the analysis.

Beck already a folk hero, but can he play – Eric Edholm, Pro Football Weekly

I’m going to Vegas on Friday.  I think I’m going to try to have a sportsbook give me custom odds on some sort of John Beck bet.

EAGLES

Burress a ‘dirty’ player – Tim Mahon, philly.com

Apparently, his prison cell was filthy.

Running backs from 2009 class are still working to prove worth – Steve Wyche, nfl.com

LeSean McCoy is by far and away the best RB in that draft class so far.

More on DeSean, little on Asante – Brian Solomon, McNabb or Kolb

Brian dismisses my labor intensive film work 🙁

Graham: Knee at 75% – Jonathan Tamari, philly.com

I love when athletes assign a percentage to their healing injuries.  Does Graham have a digital contraption attached to his knee that measures his progress?

    Jimmy, I thought the original logo was just awesome, why the change?
