    “The Vikings have slashed 78 players from their draft list.”
    An Easter miracle for 78 kids.

    You have to love the eagles one liner, penned by that unbiased non-partsian model of journalistic integrity himself. Mr. Dave SPINdaro…

    It says Corey Simon was a hit… The Eagles DT’s have never been their strong point in recent years, Corey Simon was a bust. How does Spadaro manage to write this garbage with his so far up Reid’s ass?

    “Jeff Blair!!!! Of the Toronto Globe & Mail predicts” anything about Football, is like Mike Florio and PFT predicting that the latest strain of Bird Flu will be more hazardous then the last!!!!!!! Its ridiculous. Jeff Blair knows no more about the Bills than his own wife’s bra size. He knows there IS a team in Buffalo, and vaguely what they look like. Jeeez!! His news just ain’t news!!!

    Sounds like something RICK Stroud wrote this morning in the St Pete Times yesterday.

    I predict that the Bills will continue to fleece Toronto of tens of millions of dollars annually while dangling the carrot of potentially getting them there full time, which will never happen. Suck on that, Jeff Blair!
