Happy Father’s Day!
Financially, the Eagles are in the best position in the NFC East, by far, to make some serious moves in FA.
Sheil’s argument against Bush, or rather his argument that Bush might not be interested in Philly, is that there aren’t enough footballs to go around with guys like McCoy, Jackson, Maclin, Celek, Avant, etc etc all being major contributors. My counter to that would be that Bush comes from an offense in New Orleans that was also jam-packed with contributors, so he’s used to not being THE guy. Some players like being part of the mix instead of being the guy. Maybe that’s Reggie Bush. Maybe it’s not.
Michael Vick and DeMarcus Ware are the only 2 NFC East players yet to be named that made the list, I think.
LeSean McCoy ranked 2nd.
(Giants, Cowboys, and Redskins news after the jump)…
Good work here by Ralph.
It doesn’t seem right that, to be honest, that a second-year quarterback who has not yet accomplished nearly what Manning has now brings in more cash than Manning does. That, however, is the nature of the business.
It also doesn’t seem right that Manning makes a lot more than a guys like Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, and Phillip Rivers, to name a few, that are all better than him.
Personally, I think the OL needs to be objective 1, 2, and 3. If the Giants don’t get serious help along the OL, it could be a season killer.
Good read. Frankly, if you’re a RB in the NFL and you can’t pass block, you’ll be riding the pine. For years, the NFC East had two of the best in the league in Brian Westbrook and Clinton Portis.
Rafael talks about the 2 reported AFC owners that are dragging their feet on a new deal.
Didn’t really need a ranking to tell me that.
It’ll actually cost the Cowboys more toward the cap in 2011 if they cut than if they keep him. Even still, I’d just cut him already and give his snaps to someone that can grow within the offense. How many more years do you really want to watch this guy get shut down by one-on-one coverage?
Most reporters are basically laughing at this one, and killing Allen (Dan doesn’t do that here), but really, what’s Allen going to say? That he wishes they didn’t make the deal? Clearly, they’d love to take a mulligan on that one. There’s really no debate there. But McNabb is still on the roster, and I’m sure the Redskins are holding onto the remote glimmer of hope that they can trade McNabb for something… anything. Not sure if anyone will be biting with McNabb’s high contract, but you can’t go around bashing a guy you’re hoping to trade.
I hope I write something someday that gets as much mileage as that Dave McKenna piece.
Good stuff here. Fletcher is going to coach in the NFL one day.
