AFC North Headline Of The Day...


There are two reasons to go with this headline today.

1. This is a sign that we really are in that black hole of suck between the Super Bowl and the draft, when this can actually be considered "news."

2. What is Dan Orlovsky hoping to accomplish by this market testing?

I mean, does Dan Orlovsky not remember that he's probably one of the only QBs to actually run out of his own end zone unknowingly, for a safety? He must not if he thinks he's going to get a decent deal anywhere else. Well, ok, I guess that's not completely true. San Fran might give him a shot. Hell, last year they named JT O'Sullivan their starter over Alex Smith (not that it wasn't the right move, either). There really isn't anywhere for them to go but up.

Anyways, the real point here is - Who cares?

Not me, I know that much.

Harrison is 36 man, would the eagles really want him?

Now Jeff Saturday on the other hand.....

Jerry Rice had 92 receptions for 1211 yards when he was 40. I could see Harrison putting up those numbers again too.

besides the Eagles are trying to win now. take a gamble and when they fail. then rebuild.

If I were Orlovsky, I'd definitely be looking to be a backup for a better team. Luckily for him, every other team is a better team.

doug ~ Funny you should mention that. Domski and I were just talking about that Eagles mentality yesterday. I'm glad you made the point.

asshole ~ +1. Well done as usual.
