Linky – June 8, 2011 – Albert, put down the newspaper in meetings

Mmmmm... titties

Cowboys free agent DE Stephen Bowen acting as if future is in Dallas – Rainer Sabin, dallasnews.com

Bowen should want to stay in Dallas – It’s one of the few places he can realistically start.

Cowboys stadium not a tough venue – Todd Archer, ESPN

These helmet rankings, stadium rankings etc are stupid.

Could Quintin Mikell solve Cowboys’ safety problems? Ashley Bolton, Landry Hat

Not sure about the part where Mikell is taking a discount because he’s not as recognizable of a name as Michael Huff.

Cowboys draft pick: Bruce Carter -Todd Archer, ESPN

Interview with Butch Davis

Offseason Head Scratcher: Will Kyle Kosier play left guard for the Cowboys in 2011? – Rabble, Blogging the Boys

You play Jerry Jones.

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

REDSKINS

Haslett: Haynesworth doesn’t want to do anything – Rich Tandler, Real Redskins

He can do almost anything he wants. He doesn’t want to do anything. To me that’s the issue. He’s one of those guys you walk in a meeting and you tell him, ‘Put down the phone.’ The next day you have to tell him to put down the phone. The next day, you tell him to put down the phone.

You tell him, ‘Don’t read the newspaper in meetings.’ The next day you have to tell him the same thing. It doesn’t stick; it’s an everyday thing.

‘Don’t read the newspaper in meetings’ – LOL.  No mention of whether Haslett had to repeatedly remind Haynesworth not to fondle titties.

Bowen, Gannon defend Kyle Shanahan – Rich Tandler, Real Redskins

Two links for Tandler today.  Look, PFT is what it is.  Everyone that says they hate it checks it 3 times/day, and you can include me in that mix.  Their ‘analysis’ of the news as it pertains to football (particularly by Florio himself) is pure garbage – The trick is to ignore that aspect of the site, and just appreciate it for it’s ability to aggregate the latest news 24/7.  What they do isn’t really all that difficult.  It’s only a matter of time before another major media outlets puts some money into developing a similar format, hopefully with analysis that’s designed less to generate traffic, and more to be… you know… good.

Grossman extols virtues of Redskins offense, wants to remain – nfl.com

Of course he wants to stay.  Where the hell else is he going to start?

Summing up the Mike Shanahan era via game shows – Kevin Ewoldt, Hogs Haven

Photoshop goodness.

EAGLES

Avant: Burress could help Eagles – Jonathan Tamari, philly.com

Avant would have the most to lose with Burress’ arrival.

Drew Rosenhaus visited by the ghost of TO past – Andrew Kulp, 700level

One of the things I realized with the Eagles is that there’s an approach that works with them and an approach that doesn’t work. And the approach that doesn’t work is to try and strongarm them and allow it to become public and take them on.

Nice going, dipshit.  I could have told you that in 2005.

Asomugha not high on Eagles’ wishlist – Clark Judge, CBS

They tell me there is an indifference toward Asomughha, mostly because he will cost a fortune but partly because he’s a press cornerback who plays only the right-cornerback position.

Asomugha may or may not be a target for Philly, but the above except from Judge’s report makes little sense.  In the Eagles’ defense, one corner plays one side, the other corner plays the other side.  They don’t match up against a certain receiver and follow him all over the field.  Asante Samuel plays strictly on the left side, while the Eagles could slide Asomugha neatly into the RCB spot.  No fuss, no muss.  With Juan Castillo as the new DC, that philosophy could change of course, but it would still be a dumb reason not to pursue Nnamdi.

McCoy must repay nearly $8,200 – Brad Biggs, NFP

Apparently, you better send a bus to be able to fit Shady’s entourage.

GIANTS

Kiwanuka among 39 quiet Giants at workout – Paul Schwartz, NY Post

They’re now in 3rd in the NFC East player organized offseason lockout-induced power rankings, pushing the Eagles to 4th.  I got out of work early to stop by Bergen Catholic to check it out, but they were gone already.

A list of the guys in attendance – Big Blue Interactive

QB Eli Manning, QB Sage Rosenfels, WR Hakeem Nicks, WR Domenik Hixon, WR Ramses Barden, WR Victor Cruz, WR Jerrel Jernigan, WR Devin Thomas, WR Duke Calhoun, WR Sam Giguere, WR/HB Darius Reynaud, HB D.J. Ware, HB Da’Rel Scott, TE/FB Bear Pascoe, TE Jake Ballard, OT David Diehl, OT Will Beatty, OG Chris Snee, OG Rich Seubert, OG Kevin Boothe, OG Mitch Petrus, OC Shaun O’Hara,  OC Adam Koets, OC Jim Cordle, OL Jamon Meredith, DE Mathias Kiwanuka, DT Marvin Austin, LB Jonathan Goff, LB Michael Boley, LB Clint Sintim, LB Chase Blackburn, LB Adrian Tracy, LB Greg Jones, CB Prince Amukamara, CB/S Brian Jackson, CB Bruce Johnson, P Matt Dodge, Lawrence Tynes, and long snapper Zak DeOssie.

Giants with and without Plax – Charles Costello, giantsfootballblog.com

Spoiler – Statistically, they were very, very good with him, very meh without him.

Jerry Reese removes any doubt about Brandon Jacobs – Brad Biggs, NFP

The “Unemotional GM” says that’s a mistake.

    “Men, we are here to win championships. We are NOT here to fondle titties.”

  3. CarverM says:

    So that’s where this coaching staff went wrong with Fat Al. They forgot to remind him not to fondle titties.

    1. The “Don’t fondle titties” speech should be DAY ONE of camp. Any good coach should know that.

  4. The Legend says:

    It doesn’t really surprise me to read that about Haynesworth because he wanted no part of that defense & he wanted out of Washington. I would be surprised if he did that with Washburn in Tennesee since he respects him so much
