  1. Any Eagles sitting this weekend?

    Every fantasy expert in town is saying that McNabb and Westbrook are going to get benched. Reid knows that the only way to win without Owens will be to get his players in a groove going into the playoffs. Maybe MAYBE they get benched in Week 17, but this week he's got to see what they can do. It probably doesn't really "help" McNabb that much; he'll pass less but run more. Westbrook could be the f-n man though. This guy was THE guy last year without TO.
  2. Cowboy accomplishments this year

    Cowboys - HC Parcells Sticking With QB Testaverde Jaime Aron, AP Bill Parcells still thinks Vinny Testaverde gives the Dallas Cowboys the best chance to win, so he's keeping the 41-year-old as his starting quarterback. Parcells put off the decision until Wednesday, drawing speculation he was finally going to turn to one of his youngsters, either highly touted rookie Drew Henson or Tony Romo, who was promoted to second string last week.
  3. NE vs. Jets

    The jets suck. They won't win next week or any playoff game.
  4. Colts to announce new stadium deal

    I don't owe anyone anything. I bet you 2 clowns share a 2 headed dildo.
  5. Colts to announce new stadium deal

    I wonder what they will call this new stadium. Maybe they could do a special tribute for Captain and Swerski for being the biggest nutsuckers to hang form Manning sack.
  6. Teams destined to disappoint

    Am I reading this wrong? Don't I have another game to be played?
  7. Steelers at Jaguars

    Leftwich looked solid last week but a late fumble cost them the game. This week they are desperate because at 6-5 they are barely holding on to playoff hopes but if they lose this one, they're done. That means getting back to business this week. The Steelers have been getting by lately on their run game with Roethlisberger putting up mediocore numbers but the Jags have only allowed 2 100 rushers all season, so I dont think the Steelers will have as much success on the ground and will be forced into 3rd and longs. Look for a solid dose of Taylor followed by a few deep balls to Jimmy Smith. Jags by 3
  8. Maurice Hicks: No Player Projections?

    Kevan Barlow remains the starter for at least another week, although the team figures to get Maurice Hicks a fair amount of work against St. Louis, too. Hicks is averaging 4.6 yards a carry since coming off the practice squad three weeks ago, while Barlow is mired at 2.2 per carry since that point.
  9. Urlacher should play vs. Vikes

    Is that when he plays or is on the bench?
  10. While Parcells said he would prefer not to give Jones 30 carries a game, fullback Richie Anderson's probable return to the lineup Monday night against Seattle should give the rookie running back some rest. Anderson was inactive for the Bears game after suffering a concussion in the Cowboys' 30-10 loss to the Ravens. Anderson was still feeling the effects of the concussion in the three days between the Ravens game and last Thursday's win over Chicago. "We just held him out because it was short week, but he should be able to practice," Parcells said.
  11. Portis riding the pine this week?

    local sports talk radio show this evening had a blurb about that and said that the Redskins had totally discounted the report. For what its worth, Portis should get his 10-12 carries this week!
  12. Ahman news?

    By Rob Demovsky Two weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers were down to their last running back. Now, it appears they will have their full stable of backs for Sunday’s game at Philadelphia. Ahman Green returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since he bruised his ribs against Houston on Nov. 21. He missed Monday night’s win over St. Louis, but Najeh Davenport (who missed the Houston game) returned and rushed for a career-high 178 yards against the Rams. Though the Packers practiced Wednesday in shorts and without pads, Green wore protective pads on his ribs and reported no trouble getting through the 90-minute workout. “I’ll just see how it feels with contact,” Green said after practice. “It’s getting better every day.” Green said the protective pad he wore in practice is not unlike what many quarterbacks wear on a regular basis. “I think Michael Vick wears them,” Green said. Davenport, who has missed four games this season due to two separate hamstring injuries, also has bruised ribs. Coach Mike Sherman said Davenport got hit in the ribs early in the Rams’ game. Davenport practiced on Wednesday. “It’s like I said to him, the nice thing about the rib injury is it takes his mind off the hamstrings,” Sherman said. “So he doesn’t have to worry about that as much. He played the game with (bruised ribs), so I don’t think it’s going to be a factor.” The Packers had their top two running backs available last season against the Eagles, and it proved to be a potent combination. In the two games a year ago, the Packers rushed for 241 yards and 210 yards against Philadelphia. However, they lost both games. The problem in the regular-season game — when Green had 192 yards and Davenport added 24 — was on third down. The Packers converted just 3 of 14 third downs in the 17-14 loss at Lambeau Field. In the 20-17 overtime playoff loss at Philadelphia, the Packers were only 1 of 3 in red zone despite 156 yards from Green and 42 yards from Davenport. “Usually, statistics kind of give you an indication of the score to a certain degree, but in some cases that’s not true,” Packers quarterback Brett Favre said. “Both games last year we rushed for 200, which is fine, but you have to score points. We had some big plays on them in both games, but not big enough.” Looking back: Sherman either has convinced his players not to dwell on last year’s playoff loss to the Eagles, or they have indeed gotten over the sting of the loss that included the Packers’ failure to stop the Eagles on fourth-and-26 and Favre’s interception in overtime. Players in the locker room on Wednesday insisted that game won’t be the motivating factor on Sunday. “We’ve put that behind us,” Favre said. “Obviously, it comes up a lot this week, but that’s past tense. “Really, there shouldn’t be any revenge. That should never cross our minds. To say because they ended our season we owe them one, that’s untrue.” After Monday’s win over the Rams, Sherman said there was a good chance he wouldn’t even mention last year’s loss to the Eagles to his team. “They’ve got to be worried about what we do this year,” Sherman said. “You can’t go back and undo what’s done. When we hit the field and go back into Philly’s stadium, will there be a little something extra in their gut? I hope so. But as far as our preparation is concerned, it’s totally focused on what we’re trying to accomplish this year. We had our opportunity last year. We didn’t take advantage of it.” 11 vs. 10: Perhaps former Packers safety Antuan Edwards wasn’t completely to blame for giving up a 29-yard reception to tight end Bubba Franks on Monday night. Though Edwards, who was picked up by the Rams after the Dolphins cut him in midseason, was on Franks, he was the only safety on the field for St. Louis. The Rams had only 10 men on the field. “I didn’t see a middle safety,” Franks said. “I knew all I had to do was beat Antuan. He was having to cover two guys.” The completion to Franks, which set up a 10-yard touchdown pass to Javon Walker on the next play, came with the Packers in a two-tight-end formation. Ben Steele ran the same seam route on the other side of the field. “Ben was wide open, too,” Franks said. “He could have thrown it to Ben or me. I’ll take 11 on 10 every time.” Etc: Safeties Bhawoh Jue (hip flexor) and safety Darren Sharper (knee) were held out of practice on Wednesday, but Sherman said he expected both to work out today. Receiver Robert Ferguson (twisted foot) also missed practice. Cornerback Al Harris did not practice, but the reason was not disclosed. … Receiver Jamal Jones was signed to the practice squad. The 6-foot, 214-pound rookie was with the Rams in the preseason. He played college football at North Carolina A&T.
  13. Thomas Jones

    Bear RB Thomas Jones didn’t practice Wednesday because the team coaches wanted to keep him off the artificial surface the club practices on, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Jones isn’t listed on the injury report, so he should be fine for the weekend.
  14. Urlacher should play vs. Vikes

    Urlacher is most over rated player in the NFL.
