Sporting News/PFT don't understand "Bold"

In a recent column on SportingNews.com,  ProFootballTalk.com blogger Mike Florio, seems to struggle with what the word "Bold" means.

The column is titled, 10 bold predictions for the NFL offseason

Keep in mind bold predictions... His #4 bold prediction?

"4. Eagles could trade McNabb"

Indeed a bold prediction on his part. A team could trade a player. Maybe in his explanation he was more actually bold.

There's too much smoke not to believe McNabb is available for the right price. That doesn't mean a trade definitely will happen, but it means a trade definitely could happen.

A bold prediction would have been "The Eagles WILL trade McNabb" or "McNabb will NOT be traded." Bottom line is... don't title your column "10 Bold predictions" if you aren't willing to make, you know... bold predictions.
