Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Brian Dawkins will never do this again in an Eagles uniform. Just typing this is very sad for me.  I'm a born and bred die-hard Philadelphia sports fan and we love our Iggles.  The thought of Brian Dawkins, BDawk, Weapon X, on a different team in a different uniform is unfathomable.  ...

Jerry Jones: My Way or the Highway!

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

It's been the way of the Cowboys ever since Jerry Jones bought the team two decades ago -- Jones will bring in great football people, allow them to build teams with relatively minimal interference, and swoop in when the deed is done to take all the credit. Then, there's the inevitable ...

Shawn Springs Talks About the Final Cut

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Free agency isn't just about the huge contracts given to players like Albert Haynesworth - it's also about players getting cut so that teams can overpay for other players! Example?

Will New England Be The Fountain Of Youth For Fred Taylor?

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Rodney Harrison and Junior Seau drank Bill Belichick's Ponce de Leon Kool-Aid.  Looks like Fred Taylor is next.  One of the more unheralded deals on the first day of free agency was the Patriots signing Fred Taylor to a two year deal.  The starting job for the Patriots is wide ...

Dominique Foxworth Joins The (Still?) Big Bad Ravens Defense

Friday, February 27th, 2009

The Baltimore Ravens clearly have every intention of getting younger on defense, and in the secondary in particular. After cutting the high-priced Chris McCallister recently, and with CB Samari Rolle set to most likely join another team, the AFC runner-up made a move on Day 1 of 2009 NFL Free ...
