McNabb Headed To TV, Kafka Works Out For Pats, Hanson A Raider

It looks like Donovan McNabb is close to signing a deal with the NFL Network to do a couple of cable shows this season.  Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal says the former Eagles signal caller will soon be part of the network.

McNabb had been hoping to sign a contract with a NFL team and get the chance to play another year, but obviously he didn’t get the interest he had wanted.

Former Eagles quarterback Mike Kafka worked out for the New England Patriots today, according to Jason LaConfora.  He still has practice squad eligibility, so he could wind up on the Patriots’ practice squad or the practice squad of another team. You never know what will happen after you’ve been released in the NFL, so this opportunity could be a good thing for Kafka.

Yesterday, rookie nickel back Brandon Boykin told me he got a call the other day from Joselio Hanson, whom he beat out for the Birds nickel position.  Hanson was one of the first to tell Boykin that he was going to be the team’s top slot corner.

It was a nice jester by Hanson, who called Boykin to congratulate him and wish him the best of luck.

I know Boykin has to be feeling good for Hanson today because the veteran has signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.

I was waiting for this move by Donovan. He was given every chance during his career to do the wrong thing by the media and always took the high road. They owe him a career beings that alot of them made theirs harrassing the guy.

Come-on “G”. Your writing is terrible, even for just blogging. Do you ever proofread what you type?!?!

Kind of sad it this is truly the end of the road for number 5. Kafka gets a look from the Pats, Kolb gets big money from the Cards, and McNabb is still better than either.
I wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors. He gave me a lot of exciting Sunday afternoons.

No he isn’t still better, than anyone. Thus no team wanting him. IT’S OVER!
Now we don’t have to hear all of the pom-pom wavers idiocy, about bringing him back here to back-up. He was cooked when we got rid of him. Top 2 all time Eagle QB’s, but it’s over!

Who cares about the errors in his writing. Go to a grammar seminar if that is what gets you off.

If you can’t say what you mean, you can’t mean what you say. Especially in this text-only medium, writing well is very important.
jester = gesture, etc.

Wow! Slow day for the start of the season. I just wanted to chime in my expectations for the Eagles record this year. They will win on Sunday. Thats a stone cold mortal lock. If they lose on Sunday, we can look forward to the Andy Reid farewell tour because its a wrap. They will also definitely beat Atl after the bye, home vs. Dallas and home vs. Wash. Ariz is a trap game only if they beat Balt. If they lose the home opener they burry Ariz. I still say they win a close one in Ariz even if they beat Balt. I actually expect them to start 4-0. The Steelers is almost a definite loss after the emotion of B Dawk night and beating the defending champs/bitter rival. They will beat Detroit in a shootout. Then after a 6-1 start they will limp to a 5-4 finish. They lose to the Saints. Thats a lock. After beating Dallas at home, they lose in DC. They beat Carolina and then win in Dallas to go into the final quarter at 9-3. They struggle with win in Tampa, then lose the annual head scratcher as the offense struggles against the Bengals. They hammer Wash before losing finale in NYG. 11-5. The key to this whole thing is very simple. If they lose to Clev you can pack it in right away because there is no way this is a playoff team. But the real test is Balt, Pitt and NO. If they lose all three of those games, i would bet my life that they DO NOT make the SB. That will show that Andy still cannot beat quality opponents and there is no hope to succeed in the playoffs. By November 4th we will know if this team is worth getting excited about or they are a pretender yet again.

jbird, I should have specified my top 2, or 3 favorites. He may be statistically, 1 of our best, but I’m a huge Randall & Jaws fan. I couldn’t stand McNabb. He was a whiny, Momma’s boy, smacked @$$, that never warmed up to us!!!! I still don’t think he’s over the draft booing. Nitwit!!!!
