NFL Football 2010/2011 Season

Did a search and didn't see any topics. I know it is early but there has been a big trade already.

Donovan McNabb to the Redskins!

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=5055346

I really didn't think the Eagles would trade him...


Can't wait for the Draft now!!!!

I kinda thought that the raiders would have bucked up and snagged him.

I highly recommend www.profootballtalk.com for all of you NFL fans out there. They are usually spot on with their rumors. They seem to be connected pretty well to NFL front offices and Player agents.

Wow.

As a Philadelphian, all I can say is that Kolb better freakin' rock.

I cheered when McNabb was drafted. I have been a fan, and was always mad he wasn't given some decent receivers. The one year he had a top 10 receiver, they went to the Super Bowl.

What a mess. And I was in a good mood thanks to the Flyers sticking it to the Red Wings. That lasted 8 hours? 6 maybe?

Thanks for the link....


I didn't think he would get traded at all personally I thought they would stick it out and he would retire an eagle! This is big, the redskins just jumped up a few more in the rankings in my book. New coach and now a seasoned quarterback. They could be really good this year especially in the NFC East.

I still like my Cowboys thou!

Didn't think I'd ever say this, but Dan Snyder actually made a smart move in the offseason for a change.

Well, it's going to be an interesting draft.

The Eagles need to do something huge to appease the fans after the McNabb departure. To Washington. Ick.

Broncos still have Marshall, and neither side likes each other.

But on the bright side, I got to watch (and rewatch) the destruction of Texas stadium, which I enjoyed thoroughly.

The Jets are buidling a team that has a real chance to make some noise this year. The Pats are in somewhat of a rebuilding phase, which gives NY the perfect opportunity to take the division. They are collecting veteran talent that doesn't neccesarily help them out in the long run, but definitely gives them a fighting chance this season. Rex Ryan is a smart guy, and I love what his general attitude and demeanor is doing for the game.

The Steelers traded Santonio Holmes.

Slightly surprising, but won't matter much. Mike Wallace is better anyway.

As a Jets fan this is definitely exciting for me.. They are taking last years momentum and building on it. Should be a fun season

Holmes takes the double team pressure off Edwards, and on top of them, you get Cotchery back in the slot (where he belongs). That's a great WR tandem, as long as Sophomore Sanchez can hit his targets!

For the record, I'm a die-hard Pats fan, but the Jets moves in the past year are going to make for some exciting matchups, for sure.

The only reason for the hole in the roof is so all those texans can fit their massive egos in there.

The scientific reason: hot air rises. If the hole wasn't there it'd probably float away.

I loves me some Jets football. So many moves this off-season. They're making a run to win a championship now.

I approve.

Looks like big Ben got a lucky break today. Although he probably should be brought up on rape charges.

I hate this time of year when every NFL-oriented website runs the same tired draft stories over and over again.

"All time best picks [at #XX]"
"Best Draft Picks Ever"
"Mock Draft X.X"
"All-Time Biggest Busts" <--- although this one might get interesting if writers grow some balls and start including Jamarcus Russell and/or Reggie Bush.

One of the biggest (no pun intended) busts of all time.....
