  1. with the ninth pick in the 2010 nfl entry draft the buffalo bills select…….(insert the next bust’s name here).
    trent williams doesnt have to worry really about getting stuck in buffalo, if he’s the 9th best player, and still on the board, the bills will most certainly reach for someone slated to go in the 2nd round.

  2. Alex Brown also owns a pro volley ball team in Puerto Rico, he might like being in Tampa cause he’d be closer to his boys….

  3. “During Tuesday’s introductory press conference with the Redskins, QB Donovan McNabb thanked the same Philadelphia fans who booed him on draft day for their support over the last 11 years.”
    you must be kidding me. the “fans” didn’t boo him, a group of douchebags who were sent to the draft by a radio station in philadelphia that florio frequently appears on with the specific purpose of booing mcnabb booed mcnabb. FANS didn’t boo him. knuckleheads did. despite what you’d think, more people here supported him than not.

  4. They weren’t even booing McNabb – they were booing the team didn’t take Rickey.
    I can see why you were relegated to the one-liners Silva. Hopefully your time here will be short lived.

  5. Right, they didn’t boo McNabb just like they didn’t cheer Irvin’s neck injury.

    In all fairness, cheering Irvin’s neck injury is not all that unreasonable. I’m not going to stand up for Philly fans, but I’ll bet an Irvin injury would be cheered in more than half NFL stadiums. The guy’s a turd.
