Spencer…. Hmmm… Spencer for Hire? They’re thinking about tagging Spencer for Hire? Or maybe the terrible mall store with useless crap, Spencers? No, that doesn’t make any sense. Not sure who else they could be talking about. Wait… not Anthony Spencer. The Cowboys can’t possibly be considering paying Anthony Spencer $9 million this season, can they? Anthony, word of advice… If the Cowboys send you a franchise tag tender, sign that thing and file it with the league immediately.
The chances of the Cowboys attempting to sign Randy Moss seems highly unlikely. Receiver is one of the few areas the franchise doesn’t need an upgrade and re-signing Laurent Robinson should be a higher priority than adding a receiver that turned 35 on Monday.
But with Jerry Jones running the show you never really know.
I love that these article, previously written with Al Davis in mind, have now moved over to Jerry Jones.
Gosselin: The Cowboys should be flattered anyone’s even talking about them. They’ve been inconsequential. The fact that the Giants are going to talk about the Cowboys, they beat the Cowboys twice. The Cowboys couldn’t beat the Giants or the Eagles, they were the third team in the division. They ought to be flattered that the world champions are talking about them.
I was going to make some sort of snarky comment about Routt and Mike Jenkins breaking records for pass interference, but I looked up Jenkins’ 2011 penalties, and found that he didn’t have a single penalty. Not one. Wow. So why do I have the idea in my head that he’s a pass interference machine? Oh… he had 8 in 2010. Good job by Jenkins turning that around.
I did a bit of a double-take when John suggested that Flynn won’t get as much money as Kyle Orton in free agency. I would have liked to have heard more from John on that one.
Lol, this guy leads with this sentence:
Evidently, the amateur general managers that pose as reporters believe we need their opinion on the subject.
And then, a mere 4 paragraphs down, he must have forgotten the theme of his own post, as he played a little round of “amateur GM” himself:
Washington has the capability to improve the offense greatly, especially if Manning signs to a two-year deal. They can bring in a Marques Colston or Vincent Jackson in free agency. They might pick up a Justin Blackmon with the sixth pick. Do you not think Colston, Blackmon, Santana Moss, and Fred Davis make up a solid core?
Lost in Bradshaw’s mini-rant about the Cowboys never being able to win with Tony Romo at the helm, was this quote about the Skins. It’s funny how perspective works. The Skins spanked the Giants this season… twice. They didn’t just beat them. Again, they spanked them. Of course, they only won 3 other games. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess Bradshaw didn’t see the majority of those.
Fun with homonyms.
There’s no way the Giants are paying him $4.9 million, and there’s no chance anyone else is, either. He played in only 26.6% of the Giants’ offensive snaps in 2011, despite not being injured. And when he did play, he averaged just 3.8 yards per carry, albeit behind a line that couldn’t open up holes. This is a good job by his agent, who knows that a pay cut is better than being cut.
Eli haz a sad.
Of course he is.
Eagles are reportedly “curious.”
After apparently talking about the idea with friends for about a month, wide receiver Randy Moss celebrated his 35th birthday Monday by announcing his intentions to return to the NFL. One big question is whether Moss can reignite the passion with the team he has so openly adored over the years.
Yes, the New England Patriots could use Moss in a serious way. In addition, according to a source close to Moss, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Jets are at least curious and the San Francisco 49ers could look to fill a hole if they let go of Josh Morgan in free agency. A source with one of those teams conveyed via text it would be “intriguing” to see what Moss has left in the tank after a year away from the game.
The Eagles made a very strong run at Moss the season after he lit up the league for 23 TD’s, so it would make some sense from that perspective. At the very least, he couldn’t possibly be any worse than Steve Smith… Right?
If the Eagles’ mood on Moss is upgraded from “curious” to “pondering,” I’ll be all over it. Wait… I’m getting word that Joe Buck is “disgusted.”
Love that Cris Collinsworth thinks it’s funny, but Buck cuts him off.
