Brian Westbrook’s New Backup Looks Good in Debut LeSean McCoy looked solid in his time playing with the Philadelphia Eagles 1st team offense in their game last Thursday night vs. the New England Patriots. McCoy had 10 rushing attempts for 55 yards and 2 receptions for 12 yards on three drives for the Eagles. The drives last 11 plays, 9 plays and 10 plays, respectively, so McCoy was used on 40% of the Eagles plays on those three drives. Don’t forget McCoy on draft day, especially if y

Tom Cable Punches Raiders Assistant

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Oakland Raiders Head Coach Tom Cable is Out of Control “You’re out of control, Cable,” shouted Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis to his head coach, “I’m taking your badge.” That’s how I imagine Oakland Raiders Training Camp going right about now, after it was revealed Monday, August 17th that Tom Cable had punched one of his defensive assistants, Randy Hanson, on August 5th. The punch broke Hanson’s jaw and forced him to make a trip to the emergency r

Michael Turner Impressive in Preseason Debut Michael Turner put on a show in the first preseason game for the Atlanta Falcons, posting 63 yards and 1 TD on 6 carries, including his 40-yard touchdown run. This is pretty much how Michael Turner’s 2008 season began, with a big game against a lousy Detroit Lions team. Keep in mind this is the Lions we’re talking about, but it looks like Michael “the Burner” Turner still has what it takes. Roddy White Fantasy Football News On

Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson Fantasy Football News

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson Battle for Browns Starting Job Eric Mangini still hasn’t declared a winner in the quarterback battle in Cleveland between Brady Quinn and Derrick Anderson. Both quarterbacks have had their moments in camp and each has their reasons they might claim the job, but I’m assuming Brady Quinn has the inside track for two reasons. Brady Quinn Fits Mangini’s Offensive Style – Brady Quinn has a quarterbacking style that most fits Eric Mangini’

Brett Favre Changes His Mind…Again We might not be free of the Brett Favre Retirement Curse just yet. According to Jay Glazier, Brett Favre is likely to return to the NFL and play for the Minnesota Vikings once preseason is over with. I know this sounds like a cruel joke, but I’m not making this up. At this point, Brett Favre is like one of those villains in the slasher movies, who simply refuses to stay dead. Don’t get me wrong. I have Brad Childress as a head coach in a keepe
