Linky – June 19, 2011 – Bruce Allen would trade for McNabb again?

I'm going to give Bruce the benefit of the doubt by calling him a liar, which is better than being stupid.

Happy Father’s Day!


Eagles GM puts NFC East rivals, Cowboys on alert; says team will be aggressive in free agency – Rainer Sabin,

Financially, the Eagles are in the best position in the NFC East, by far, to make some serious moves in FA.

Bush, McCoy and the Eagles’ RBs – Sheil Kapadia,

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.

Jackson ranked 29 on NFL Network Top 100 – Eagles Mothership.

Michael Vick and DeMarcus Ware are the only 2 NFC East players yet to be named that made the list, I think.

The best 3rd down running back – Doug Farrar,

LeSean McCoy ranked 2nd.

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

Like Jeremy Shockey before him, Osi Umenyiora can force the Giants’ hands with new deal or trade – Ralph Vacchiano, NY Daily News

Good work here by Ralph.

Hey, anybody got a loan for Eli Manning – Ed Valentine, Big Blue View

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.

When the lockout is finally over… – Ralph Vacchiano, The Blue Screen

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.


How important is pass blocking for running backs? – OCC, Blogging the Boys

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.

What a surprise – Rafael Vela, Cowboys Nation

Rafael talks about the 2 reported AFC owners that are dragging their feet on a new deal.

Ranking: Ware among league’s elite pass rushers – Scott Crisp, NBC DFW

Didn’t really need a ranking to tell me that.

Keep or Cut: Roy Williams – Dave Halprin, Blogging the Boys

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?


Bruce Allen: Redskins would trade for McNabb again – Dan Steinberg, WaPost

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 guess…

Washington City Paper seeks dismissal of Dan Snyder’s defamation suit – Paul Farhi, WaPost

I hope I write something someday that gets as much mileage as that Dave McKenna piece.

London Fletcher mic’d up at players only practice – Matt Terl, Redskins Blog

Good stuff here.  Fletcher is going to coach in the NFL one day.

    I’d be willing to bet its the latter, I imagine a lot of people in D.C. can’t stand Snyder.

    “City Paper sought contributions from its readers to help pay for its legal defense. As of this week, it had raised $31,000, most of it coming in small donations of around $20, according to the newspaper.”
    So about 1550 people donated to to them. Either City Paper have a lot of loyal readers or a lot of people really hate Dan Snyder.
