Is That All There Is?

Free agency seems to be trickling to a close. We all know what the Eagles have lost -- a whole bunch of veteran savvy and leadership. They've gained an offensive tackle, where they probably needed two, and a couple of safeties. Fullback Leonard Weaver remains unsigned. His courtship with the Eagles... Read more

Before the fan base gets too fired up about the (as far as I can tell) nonexistent possibility of trading Donovan McNabb for Jay Cutler, here's a good take on Cutler from CBSsportsline's Clark Judge, a guy whose opinion I respect a lot.

Boldin and the Draft
