I think he wouldn't be saying this if we still had McNabb. He's always been a Reid hater too.
Remember how there were no Eagles on the list last week, save for Norm Van Brocklin? Well, with #51-60 released, another old-time Eagle makes the list. It's a somewhat surprising one, perhaps, but not unwarranted as Van Buren was a HOF running back who led the Eagles to two championships in the 1940's. He was not in the fans' top 100. The three players who rank behind him are Mike Ditka, Jack Ham, and LaDanian Tomlinson.
He brings a very refreshing perspective. It's well worth the read for Eagles fans...or anyone else for that matter.
So, looks like Max Jean-Gilles has a chance to start at right guard in place of Nick Cole (knee). Not a good sign for Reggie Wells. Confirmation:: Max Jean-Gilles has taken reps at first-team RG as Nick Cole is missing practice time with a knee injury. Cole is questionable for SundayPer Jordan Raanan
Not sure who's worse... Cataldi, or the 30 mindless dopes that'll be doing his mindless bidding...
BTW, in the side mini-column I love how Simmons uses Survivor to create an argument that Jimmy Johnson was an overrated coach.
Finally the best description of how the average Eagles fan feels about Mcnabb and his tenure in Philly
Matt Mosley reports that 'Skins players have said this week that a defensive back will spy Michael Vick at all times. It'll be interesting to see who the spy usually is. Just means one less guy covering the likes of DeSean and Jeremy.
But this is just ridiculous. Then again, no one has ever really pegged Charles Barkley for being a genius (with all due respect to his years spent as a 76er).
From his guest blog post on The Washington Post's Box Seats: Despite the incredible level of play by Michael Vick-- and no quarterback in the NFL is playing better-- we miss Donovan. (click the link) Zoikes!
