  1. “First-year Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman is reportedly already seen by some NFL executives as a “shakedown artist” due to his ridiculously lofty early-offseason trade demands for QBs Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb.”
    Is this a surprise? It’s the fiscal-champion Eagles we’re talking about here.
    A couple million dollars saved/earned is more important to the Eagles brass than winning a championship. It’s been demonstrated time and again.

  2. just watched the video about the giants,why does mel kiper have a job? he f’n dumb.

  3. I don’t know if anyone else saw this in regard to the Redskins getting Sam Bradford. I heard someone ask Bradford that; because of his Native American heritage would he play for the Redskins? He responded, “I would ask them not to draft me.” I don’t know if anyone will read this post, but can someone respond to that?
