Let's get to the links:

Referee whining about fast paced offenses is much ado about nothing - Jimmy Kempski, Philly.com
Jimmy proves that there's nothing to worry about, Eagles fans. And as BGN commenter KJ Brophy said, "No one can stop Chip Kelly."

The Case For CB Brandon Boykin - Danta Klaus, PhiladelphiaEagles.com
Boykin doesn't have a preference playing inside or outside saying "wherever the coaches need me, that's where I'll be." Right now, he's playing like a guy who deserves to start as one of the two outside cornerbacks. Despite Boykin's height (5-foot-10), he plays a physical, feisty style and has the requisite vertical jump (40-plus inches) and wingspan (72 inches) to contend with bigger wide receivers.

As this lineup shows, it doesn't take much for the wrong team to spend too much on the wrong player. (Spoiler alert: The Cowboys made this list twice.)

If not McNabb, Eagles would have drafted James - Rueben Frank, CSN Philly
It had always been assumed that if the Eagles hadn’t taken McNabb, they would have taken either Culpepper, Couch, Cade McNown or Akili Smith, one of the other quarterbacks projected as possible top-10 picks that year.

Read-option a possibility for Bears | ProFootballTalk
The biggest current trend in offense could be making it’s way to a franchise known traditionally for its defense. And, more recently, for having a quarterback who lacks the mobility to pull off the biggest current trend in offense. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, however, the Bears apparently plan to roll out the read-option in 2013.
