The DeSean Story and the Media - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
Some of you are angry with Jimmy Bama. I love to joke around about him, but I’ll be serious for a minute. Jimmy worked hard and earned a spot at His job there is to write about the Eagles. They haven’t put any pressure on him to break news and be a reporter. Jimmy’s initial piece was speculation based on some evidence that was piling up. Jimmy never said "THEY’RE TRADING DESEAN!!!". Jimmy introduced the idea of the DeSean trade to the mainstream. We don’t know if he came up with the idea on his own or was given a hint, but either way I think the piece he wrote was fair and responsible. He made the case for why DeSean could be dealt, but also explained why that wouldn’t make sense. Jimmy had no agenda. He was simply sharing a theory. Jimmy isn’t anti-DeSean. Not even close.

A review of the Top 10 WRs in the upcoming draft - JimmyK,
Beckham's production in 2013 is particularly impressive, considering he shared targets with Jarvis Landry, another very talented receiver likely to be drafted reasonably high this year. Other receivers across the nation are the focal points of their offenses, and therefore have more gaudy numbers. Beckham has big, strong hands, great RAC ability (a common theme among this WR class), and would be a far more explosive big play threat than Jason Avant out of the slot. Beckham is also a dangerous kick and punt returner.

Eagles' silence speaks volumes - Les Bowen, Daily News
THE BIGGEST indicator that the Eagles are willing to trade DeSean Jackson remains the fact that the team hasn't responded to reports, or talked to Jackson about 2 weeks-plus of trade speculation, even after reading and hearing that Jackson is bothered by what he's hearing.

Kendricks Backs DeSean - Tim McManus, Birds 24/7
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks isn’t buying into the narrative that DeSean Jackson is a drag on the locker room, according to’s Marc Sessler. Kendricks went on to call Jackson "misunderstood," said that he was very focused last year and "didn’t give anybody problems."

Barwin: LB Braman Ready To Shine - Dave Spadaro,

Who is the greatest NFL quarterback of all-time? -
