  1. “Running back doesn’t appear to be a problem for the Eagles.”

    Running back hasn’t been an Eagles problem for a long time. Their problem is that Andy would rather lose passing than win running because he wants to be seen as some sorta QB guru. Can’t prop up that “QB guru” crap by handing off.

  2. The Texans plan to use Jacoby Jones as a kick returner for the first time in the preseason on Saturday.

    I think with the new rule this should read:
    The Texans plan to use Jacoby Jones as their designated touchback receiver for the first time in the preseason on Saturday.

  3. Regarding the Browns – Maybe if you’d take a little time to coach and practice special teams drills there wouldn’t be so many mistakes. Special teams has been nothing more than an afterthought throughout Browns training camp. Sorry Shurm, but special teams and field position is a rather important part of the game. Hopefully we’ll see a little work done in that area over the next couple of weeks.

  4. Chester Taylor needs to be cut. He has done nothing since joining the Bears! I’d like to see Bell get a shot behind Forte/Barber. Give Forte Taylor’s money…

  5. There were a lot of garbage QBs taken before Tyrod Taylor. How did that guy slide so far? Is he pretty small? I feel like I saw him on Sportscenter every Sunday in college football season for like 4 years. VT will miss him this year for sure. No more pulling a rabbit of the hat.
