Straight up? Short answer – Not even close. Kolb is a far more valuable asset than DRC.
LOL, silly Arizona paper, presenting a Sal Paolantonio report as near-fact.
Sheil proactively shoots down the inevitable “McNabb to Philly?” question that’s going to come up at some point.
Obviously, the expectations are that Watkins will start immediately at RG.
Obviously, not football related, but holy crap…
BEARS (Wait, what?)
Stumbled on this yesterday. I truly hate the Bears.
(Giants, Cowboys and Redskins news after the jump)…
See, B/R? You can publish a good article without a slideshow.
Didn’t overrate his favorite team, didn’t underrate a team I’m sure he loathes (the Eagles – in fact, might have them high), isn’t buying the Lions yet, and isn’t premature to jump on the Bucs’ bandwagon. Golf clap, my friend.
As of 9:54am on Friday, it’s 52% Beatty, 30% Andrews, and 16% Diehl. Wow. Lot’s of hope that Beatty is the real deal, and 30% for a guy that’s probably going to get cut, and has proven time and time and time and time and time again that he can’t stay on the football field? Seriously? If Shaun O’Hara is done, I can see the logic of sliding Diehl to LG, Seubert to C, and plug in Beatty at LT, but otherwise those poll results are based entirely on delusion.
Comment From mjd: How big a mistake was it to not extend Doug Free when they had the chance? Quality OTs just don’t hit free agency, and now the price will be bid waaay up!
Rainer Sabin: That’s a tough call. There was no way that the Cowboys could have predicted how well Free would have performed. He moved to left tackle last year after Flozell Adams was released and 2010 was the first season he started all 16 games. Had they decided to place franchise tag on Free, they would have had to pay him around $10.1 million this year.
Short-sighted. If you tag, Free, you control his rights. You keep him in place and then try to work out a long term deal that works for both sides. But this way, as the commenter notes, other teams around the league are going to drive his price WAY up.
Not sure about the “career year” part. Statistically, maybe. Sensi sounds like a man that thinks he had a better year than he did. If he’s expecting a big payday, he may be in for some disappointment. That said, I think the Cowboys would be smart to resign him if he’s willing to be more realistic about his worth.
Nick looks at Bills safety Donte Whitner as a possibility for the Cowboys in FA.
“The Giants cutting Burress when he went to jail was one of the 5 biggest bonehead moves in NFL history.” Ha, sorry about that. But seriously though, the Redskins drafted 3 WR’s, seem to be getting rid of their headaches, there are no shortage of other WR’s available in FA, and Cooley wants Burress? Stop playing GM, Chris.
Dan predicts the skins will stand pat with what they have. Not sure I agree – They’re going to cut McNabb, which leaves them with just Grossman (assuming they re-sign him) and Beck. Shanny will almost certainly pick up a 3rd QB.
You can buy Fed Ex Field seats for $250.
Again, not football related, but holy crap…
