Looks like Ed and I agree.
Heh heh, he said “unit.” Rich also looks at the TE’s here, who I agree are very “meh.”
I’m thoroughly sick of this “Top 100” list, and yet I link to something about it like 2-3 times/week. It’s hypnotically appealing in its irrationality. Anyway, Kirwan and Brooks mention Eli, La Canfora mentions Osi.
Signing Kiwi to a 1-year deal to see if his neck holds up is fine and good for the Giants, but they’ll need the 31 other teams league-wide to cooperate.
Cowboys, Redskins, and Eagles news after the jump)…
Carter tore his ACL on Nov. 20 last season. Every player is going to say they’re ready to go. It can certainly be done, but the Cowboys might be wise to take it slow with the rookie.
In case you don’t know, I’m an Eagles fan. Grew up in South Jersey, moved to North Jersey to work. If I ever go to a bar up here, and my beer is in a glass with a Giants logo on it, I ask for a different glass. I won’t even touch it. I’ll ask the bartender if he’ll/she’ll pour it into another glass. After they laugh, I usually need to explain that I’m dead serious.
I lived in Hoboken at one point and used to get a cup of coffee at Dunkin Donuts every morning… until they slapped a Giants logo on all the cups. I can’t live without coffee, but there was no way I was walking to the Path Station holding a Giants cup. No way. Bye Dunkies. Hello Keurig machine.
When I bought my house, there was this decoration in the shape of a star on the side of the house. Immediately broke out the ladder, ripped it off the house, sledgehammered it to mess up its shape, and threw it in the trash.
When I put stuff in the microwave, I’ll only plug in times that coincide with Eagles players’ numbers. My wife even knows to ask me how long to put stuff in there before she serves me food that’s been nuked. She’ll ask (with a highly annoyed tone), “How long should I put this leftover Mac and Cheese in for?” I’ll tell her, “Give me a Leonard Weaver,” and she’ll know to put it in for 43 seconds. If I need to microwave a pat of butter, I’ll never do 10 for DeSean Jackson because he wears the same number as Eli Manning. There are all sorts of rules.
So OK, I’m obviously more than just just a tad psychotic. Anyway, the point here is that I’ll never support Marvel Comics. Thank God I don’t really give a rat’s ass about Marvel Comics. But if the South Park kids ever became huge Cowboys fans, I’d be devastated.
Covered this yesterday, just like everyone else and their mother. Let’s take a brief moment away from clowning Roy to note something that has gone largely overlooked – The girl is effing hot. I’d probably be afraid to propose to her in person too. She totally would have gotten the “I like you, do you like me note.” On the downside, it looks like she has the classic awful chick throw.
Lol. Silly Shanny. It’s amazing how badly ego can cloud judgement.
No, Redskins, NOOOOOOOOO!!!! This one wreaks of the “same ol’, same ol’.” As the players around the league say, “Washington is the place you go when you want to get paid.” Jenkins has his ring, now it’s time to make that bank account swell. I hate this signing for the Skins. The guy is 30, and has a recent history of injuries. Build with youth guys… Youth. This is a step in the wrong direction.
Among the names floated in this piece – Nnamdi Asomugha, Jonathan Joseph, Randy Moss, Plaxico Burress and Carson Palmer. Oof.
Similar players in a lot of ways, but let’s tap the breaks on that one, Marty.
I read somewhere else that it’s T.O. (“Terrell O’Neal” or something like that on the show, I think), his mom, sister, a few baby mommas, and four kids. Not 100% on those details (and sorry, I don’t feel like researching it), but call me crazy… I won’t actually seek it out, but if I happen to stumble on it, I’d watch that.
LOL. Nnamdi’s obviously a great player and there are a lot of dumb teams out there, but there’s a 0% chance he gets paid that much.
In 2010, the Eagles’ defense gave up a franchise-record 31 touchdown passes. Only the Cowboys and Texans allowed more (33 apiece).
And opponents scored on 78.26 percent of their trips inside the red zone against the Eagles. That was by far the worst mark in the NFL. The Texans were second-worst at 67.8 percent.
Oof. Sheil also lists how many TD’s each defender gave up, which is interesting stuff.
