    Hey, I get (and like) how each player’s name is linked to their stats page but you should remove the link for Chris Henry here considering it goes to the other Chris Henry.

    And then he “unleashed hell” on the youngster, pummeling him with downy pillows until the lad was laughing so hard he could no longer fight back.

    Well, it does make sense to throw it to the guy who can get open and not drop the ball.

    You dont understand how MAD I was when the Eagles traded out of the first round again and didnt draft Desean Jackson. I was cursing the team I was pissed. Then I seen a bunch of the top WRS come off the board but no one picked Desean and I knew the Eagles had to get Jackson when their pick comes up. THEN THEY DRAFTER TREVOR LAWS. It looked like Merrill Reese was about to Shat him self when he heard that. But then a couple of picks later they Picked Desean. Merrill and Spadaro went nuts like me.
    I dont pay attention to College players usually and only really learn about them a month before the draft. Desean was different tho I knew he was gonna be great and I knew the Eagles had to pick him. I cant believe all the other teams didnt see it in this kid. Its only his 2nd year and hes already one of the best WRS in the league. I cant wait to see him in his 3rd year. Which everyone knows is when players take a huge step forward.
