Linky – June 15, 2011 – Pressure’s on, Tony (as if it wasn’t already)

The assertion that Tony Romo will be judged differently because the Mavs won a title is a little silly

GIANTS

Giants’ Perry Fewell awaits chance to coach rookies Prince Amukamara, Marvin Austin – Zach Berman, Star Ledger

More on drafting for perceived value over dire need later today here.

Plaxico, Giants better off without each other – Ed Valentine, Big Blue View

Agreed.

Coaches Association brief didn’t speak for Giants – Ralph Vacchiano, The Blue Screen

TC becomes the 4th and final NFC East coach to disassociate himself from this.

Eli Manning golfs to raise money for guide dogs – John Fennelly, Giantsfootballblog.com

Oh, yeah, well I played shuffleboard for hearing aids.  OK, that’s a dumb joke.  Sorry.  (In Mad Dog voice) “That’s a good job by Eli.”

More on the recently-completed, player-organized mini-camp – Eric, bigblueinteractive.com

I get a little crazy with the hyphenated words sometimes too, Eric.

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

COWBOYS

Dirk has shown Tony Romo that the ring is the thing – Jean-Jacques Taylor, dallasnews.com

I don’t think the Mavs winning it all changes anything for Romo.  He was going to be judged on post-season success whether the local basketball team won a Championship or not.

Where does Free rank among NFL left tackles? – Todd Archer, ESPN

Both Free and Jason Peters are too low on that list.

Cowboys outlook:Jason Garrett’s culture change doesn’t guarantee instant success – Sporting News

They predict the Cowboys to finish 3rd in the NFC East.

Romo eliminated from golf tourney – dallasnews.com

REDSKINS

Williams still camp no-show – John Keim, Washington Examiner

Left tackle Trent Williams has yet to show up to any offseason workouts. Attending these sessions does not mean a player has been working hard. Rookie Maurice Hurt doesn’t appear to have spent a ton of time working out yet he’s been to four of these sessions. However, the knock on Williams in college was that he didn’t work, or study, hard enough. It would be smart to make an appearance here just to stay sharp with his playbook if nothing else.

HOF’er.
Internet, ay?  Maude, ay?

So it’s simply an average of how many pressures a lineman gives up per pass-protection snap.  The key here, and the most subjective part of the statistic, is that it relies upon PFF’s film analysis, which we can’t see or judge for ourselves. So basically, we just have to take their word for it.  But it is what it is.

Amen brother.
EAGLES

A slice over 200 pounds, the newest Eagles safety can bench 365 pounds. Squat 505. Power clean 325. And yeah, opponents feel every bit of that.

Can’t wait to watch Jarrett in camp.
Sheil just got married and on his honeymoon, but he’s back now.

Asante Samuel will start at left cornerback. Beyond that, there is uncertainty.

PFF: Jason Peters was one of the best pass blocking LT’s in the NFL last year – Jason Brewer, BGN

Peters came in 7th.  Also of note – Doug Free came in 5th.

Turning the red zone offense from very good to great – Chris McPherson, Eagles Mothership

Not to get into semantics here, but “very good” is probably being a little too kind.
