Les Bowen of Philly.com, reports that Eagles former defensive line coach, Rory Segrest, is looking for a new job down in Mobile, Alabama at the Senior Bowl. Segrest thought he did a good job for the Birds during his time here.
“I thought we did some pretty good things this past year,” said Segrest, who is still being paid by the Eagles because he’s got another year on his contract.
According to Bowen, Segrest feels like Eagles new defensive line coach Jim Washburn had more freedom to let his defensive linemen rush the quarterback.
My former teammate, and former Eagles running back Herschel Walker says he wants to return the NFL at 48 years of age. Walker is involved with MMA now, so I think this is all part of a promotions package. He’s trying to get attention.
He probably could go out there and play a few plays, but you know he doesn’t have his speed and he wouldn’t be able to recover from all the hitting to play a game every week.
For players who don’t talk to the media, I give you Quintin Mikell. Quintin is a decent player, but nothing to write home about. He didn’t have a great year in 2010 but because of the way he makes himself available to the media, he was voted to the All-Pro 2nd team.
I’m not saying he’s a bad player, but nobody could seriously say he had an All-Pro year. The Eagles secondary surrendered over 30 touchdown passes and he played on the worst red zone defense in the last 25 years.
All I can say is congratulations, Quintin and this should be a lesson to all the players who don’t like being bothered with the media.
What was Chicago Bears GM, Jerry Angelo talking about when he brought the union up to defend Jay Cutler?
“I think it’s crap,” Angelo said. “I thought they were a union. If that’s the way they unionize, they’ve got bigger issues than the ones they have with the owners. I’m very disappointed. That to me is dirty pool.”
This is what’s wrong with unions. Let’s take a quick look at the teacher’s unions. The teachers who can’t teach are protected by the good teachers. In New Jersey, all teachers get tenure after teaching for two years. The city of Philadelphia has an abundance of “Drop Out Factories” because there are thousands of teachers who should be fired.
NFL players were just calling it the way they saw it. If you’re in a union does that mean that you shouldn’t be honest.
