When in the hell did the Eagles sign Foles? I completely missed that. Is he really a better option than Daniels?

Patriots look loaded again, another strong off season for them and they have to be the Superbowl favorite to start the season.

How strong is the market for AP right now? The Raiders are apparently trying to convince Beast Mode to unretire. Ouch.

Lynch is an Oakland native and his dream was to play for the Raiders. He and the Raiders have talked and there's interest there. Wouldn't surprise me if it happens. To put things into perspective Peterson is a year older and coming off major surgery compared to Lynch who has lower mileage and just had a year of rest. Personally I would rather the Raiders just draft a RB in what is a deep draft at the position but if it has to be one or the other I would take Lynch because AP isn't a great pass blocker and doesn't run well out of the shotgun which is a common formation for the Raiders offense.

In my opinion, yes. Foles might not be great but he's one of the better backups in the league. Daniel was hot garbage.

EDIT: Also Daniel asked for his release so he could find a team that would pay him to be a starter which is ####ing hilarious.

Hadn't heard about his request for a release. Figured we shelled out enough dough last year at least we could have gotten two years out of him. Haven't looked to see what the cap implications were to keep him. I don't mind Foles just seems rather lateral.

Brutal news from former 49er great and part of "the Catch"... Dwight Clark

Quote:
"In September of 2015, I started feeling weakness in my left hand," Clark wrote. "I was mildly paying attention to it because since my playing days, I've constantly had pain in my neck. I was thinking it was related to some kind of nerve damage because it would just come and go.

"After months of tests and treatment, I got some bad news," he continued. "I was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. I have ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Those words are still very hard for me to say."
Ugh.

Some "chatter" about Revis going back to the Pats on another one year show me deal full of incentives.

Tom Brady's stolen jersey was found in Mexico, stolen by a credentialed member of the media. The wall just got 10 feet higher.

Lol, most unexpected moment at a political hearing I can remember: FBI director uses metaphor that involves the fact he hates the Patriots.
