Peppers, tags, Vick and combine invites

Friday, February 12, 2010, 3:01 PM
Happened to catch John Clayton on "SportsCenter" and on "NFL Live" on ESPN last night. The volume of specluation about the Eagles' quarterbacks is unreal and will continue for a while, we figure. Clayton thinks the Eagles will trade McNabb and release Michael Vick, by the way. On... Read more

Lots of QB Queries for Birds; Nothing Close

Sunday, February 7, 2010, 4:07 PM
If there is one day in the NFL year when we ought to be free of worrying about Donovan McNabb and the Eagles, it should be Super Bowl Sunday. Alas, such is not the case.
