  1. you lead this section with a CFL team? why?
    the bills are in the CFL and play in Canada – all of Buffalo is worthless. what a terrible city.

  2. Florio –
    How the heck you can say Caldwell said “Talent is overrated” and publish it is beyond words.
    You took a small chunk of words OUT OF CONTEXT for glamor. That’s sick!
    I’d have thought you’d moved beyond that.
    Anyone reading this would agree…
    Caldwell stated that talent alone is not good enough, one must work hard to maximize their potential.
    Well done Florio…another reason to ignore what you say…

  3. What are the odds of the Eagles going after Mawae since Jackson is out so long (and not that good)?

  4. Free agent RB Chester Taylor, who appears likely to leave Minnesota, is expected to target a contract similar to the four-year, $14 million pact he signed in 2006.
    If I was a team in need of a starting running back I would have no problem paying Chester Taylor $3.5 million per year for 4 years with about $4 million guarenteed.
    Aslong as they pay off the gauranteed money in the 1st 2 years and backload the contract I dont see how this is alot of money for a 30 year old running back who has spent most of his career on the bench.
    He might be a good fit for the Eagles as competion for Lesean McCoy as the starter or as the 2 in a 1 2 punch.
    I would love to see them sign Chester Taylor in free agency and then target a running back in the 4th round with their 5th or 6th pick.
    Otherwise they will be forced to take a runningback early in the draft Which depending on who they pick early could take away from DE, FS, or SLB.
