Eagles text alerts are really specific; Don't fantasy draft Vince Young

A few months ago I was browsing through the Eagles website and found out that I could get free text alerts from the team. Cool right? When the Eagles signed Kevin Curtis I got a text alert an hour or so later letting me know. Same with Montae Reagor and Takeo Spikes.

Since then, however, I've been getting some extremely random texts from them. Like today...

LB Takeo Spikes has landed in Philadelphia to take part in team's conditioning program.

If I were stalking Takeo, these alerts would be very useful!

For fantasy geeks out there... I'd think twice about drafting Vince Young on your team, and not just because he had the lowest QB rating in the NFL! It looks like he'll be the this year's Madden cover boy.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young will be on the cover of the EA Sports Madden 2008 video game.

A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Young's gracing the cover of the game to The City Paper. Efforts to reach EA Sports were unsuccessful on Monday.

An official announcement is expected on Tuesday and Young will appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" as part of the kickoff promotion for the newest version the popular NFL video game that is endorsed by NFL Hall of Fame coach and analyst John Madden.

Apparently we'll be seeing lots of commercials  for EA sports new Madden game featuring Vince Young during the NFL draft.
