Male Jet Fan Punches Female Pats Fan In Face

Herrrrrrrrrrrreee it is. Men definitely shouldn't punch chicks in the face. But if they do they should knock them out or at least down. This guy has to be 225-240 and hits a 115-135(can't tell far away) and he barely deters her. Too bad she hit him first or she could press charges.

Byrd battling injury

I wonder if he's doing this bc he's injured or bc he hasn't got his extension. I know plantars fasciitis can be serious. It also can be easy to treat. With that said I wouldn't pay this guy anywhere near what he wants until it was solved. Long lasting cases can be degenerative and make a player play in constant pain if at all. Here is a link for more about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantar_fasciitis

Trade Rumors: Harbor to the Patriots

2

Per ESPN insider: It's been an interesting offseason for Philadelphia Eagles TE Clay Harbor. There was a report on his potentially switching to OLB, and more recently, he was mentioned as a potential trade target for the New England Patriots, who will not have Aaron Hernandez on their roster this season, and may not have Rob Gronkowski for some time. As the week has continued, there's been more talk of a potential trade. In the midst of some stream of consciousness tweets on other topics, Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News added fuel to the Harbor-to-Patriots fire: "Prediction: Eagles TE @clayharbs82 will catch 50-plus passes this season. For the New England Patriots." It's not immediately clear what kind of ransom the Eagles will demand for Harbor, given that he appears to be on the roster bubble, but a late-round 2014 draft pick would seem like a reasonable price to pay.

Chip Kelly Makes List of Top Up and Coming Coaches

+

from espn insider Chip Kelly, head coach, Philadelphia Eagles Only 49 years old, Kelly knows his offense. And while it probably will take him a year or so to process how the NFL game is played, he understands offensive football and how to exploit matchups. Coming from Oregon, he's in touch with the new mold of NFL player and has a good relationship with them. He's confident enough to think he'll succeed in the NFL, but he also understands that the QB of the future in Philadelphia may not even be on that roster yet. Kelly will have a system in place, but he's figured out that he needs the players to fit the system and not vice-versa. He'll go through some growing pains transitioning to a 3-4 D this season, but I expect him to have a bright future in Philadelphia.

Chip Kelly COULD be penalized by the NFL

3

NFL has precedence in suspending a coach coming from college who had broken college rules and was being suspended. Jim Tressel, former Ohio State coach was given a 6 game suspension. I don't think Chips misdoings follow him to the NFL but it COULD happen.

Pro Bowler Jon Beason Concedes to Kuechly

4

The NFL is running The Top 100 Players in the NFL and Kuechly was ranked 79. In his second year, Kuechly has taken over the defense from Pro Bowler Beason. Not bad for a kid who a lot of BGN'ers said would fail in the league or not be very good. I wonder what players who we thought would suck or be great will be the opposite this year. Any guesses?

Darrelle Revis has agreed to a six-year, $96 million contract as part of Sunday's trade that sends the cornerback from the New York Jets to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Yahoo! Sports has learned. According to the Buccaneers' web site, Tampa Bay sent its 2013 first-round draft pick (No. 13 overall) and a conditional 2014 pick that could become a third- or fourth-rounder.

Draft Players on the Down Spin

+

Fallers on offense Mike Glennon, QB, North Carolina State The arm strength is there, but everything else has been up and down for Glennon, who is simply too inconsistent in his reads, and doesn't pick up things quickly enough for some evaluators. He may simply need the reps, but he's no longer a first-round pick, which is something I thought we could see if you asked me in December. Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina His versatility is there, but given his small stature, the speed needs to be a little better for teams to consider him in the late-first or early-second. He at one time challenged to be the top RB on my board, but is now likely a third-rounder. Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State This fall actually started before January. He quit the team in Pullman, and there are questions about his work rate, as well as strength and speed. He's probably going to be a steal, but I once saw him as a likely second-rounder, and now that won't be the case. Jordan Reed, TE, Florida He needed to show off elite speed for the position, because he checked in at just 236 pounds in Indy. A 4.72 in the 40 hurt, and several tight ends passed him. A good player, but we're not sure he's quite the matchup threat we once thought he could be. Ricky Wagner, T, Wisconsin Your market dips as an offensive lineman when your biggest question mark is pass-blocking. Once a good bet for the second round, he could be off the board in the fourth. Fallers on defense Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State He took a tumble at the combine, where he looked pretty stiff in workouts and didn't show off any elite athletic traits. What Werner has is a year of really high productivity, but teams aren't convinced he can scare defenses. He could go in the late first or early second, but I once viewed him as top-10 pick. Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M Moore arrived in Indy as a good pass-rushing prospect in either a 3-4 or 4-3, and left with questions about how well he fits in either. He's not as fast or with the cover skills you want in a 3-4, nor is he strong enough to play three downs in a 4-3. He could be a steal, because he sure produced in college. But he could be out of Round 1 entirely on most boards. Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU He didn't interview well, and needed to be more productive to ease the concerns of some teams. No longer near the first round. Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi St. Hasn't been bad during this process, but just was surpassed by some other corners. He could be a good value in Round 2, but no longer in the late-first picture on my board. Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma Another player who could be a good NFL safety, but has dipped because of how much so many others have shown during the evaluation process. More likely a mid-round pick now.

Rising Draft Prospects Post Combine/Pro Days

+

Risers on offense Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma He's not in the first-round discussion, but Jones has recovered some in the eyes of a number of teams who once might have seen him as a talented lost cause. When he's fundamentally sound, he shows off a ton of arm talent. Once a likely mid-to-late rounder, I wouldn't be shocked if someone took him in the late second round. Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama At one time I know some teams saw him as third-rounder, but he could sneak his way into the late first. He's got a big frame, great feet and is the most explosive running back who can come close to an "every-down" label. Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia You loved the tape, but was the speed real? Well, his 4.34 40 time in Indy combined with good straight-line speed, very good hands and route-running chops have solidified him as a mid-first rounder. Lane Johnson, T, Oklahoma The junior college quarterback clearly made the right call when he moved to offensive tackle. Teams that once saw him as a talented natural at the position but with plenty of development, now see him as a potential top-10 pick. He has made a huge jump in a few months. Gavin Escobar, TE, San Diego State It's a tight-end crazy league, and outside of Tyler Eifert, nobody in the draft class has a better set of hands than Escobar. He'll look like a power forward splitting the seam, and where I once saw a mid-round sleeper, I now see a safe bet for Round 2. Risers on defense [+] Enlarge AP Photo/Michael Conroy Florida DT Shariff Floyd could be a top-five pick. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU Once teams got comfortable with his future position to go with the freakish athleticism, his stock really took off. He came into January as a late-first, early-second developmental talent; now he could go as high as No. 5. Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida A late-season surge helped his stock, and Floyd has aced the draft process. I had a mid-first grade on him most of the season, but he's now comfortably in the top-five mix. That may not seem like a huge leap, but it counts for more in a deep D-tackle class. Sio Moore, OLB, UConn I highlighted him during the season as a prospect to watch, and Moore has moved from the mid-round mix to a good bet for Round 2. He offers some versatility at outside linebacker. Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington He crushed the Senior Bowl, then backed it up with a great run in Indy. Trufant is versatile and able to mirror receivers outside, but adept in zone. You can draft him without scheme concerns -- he'll produce. Once a likely third, he's now in the first-round mix. Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International He's now right there with Kenny Vaccaro (Texas) and Matt Elam (Florida) on my board. Cyprien turned heads at the Senior Bowl once he got a chance to play with so many good players. It wouldn't surprise me if he's taken in Round 1.
