    Feels like the Eagles are getting talked about a lot but they are the team making all the big moves.

    Former Packers DT Cullen Jenkins has signed with the Eagles.


    Mike Sims-Walker signed with the St. Louis Rams.

      Sims-Walker to St. Louis is huge.

      If you remember back to the begining of the season, the Rams aquired WR Mark Clayton from the Ravens (I think) just before the season started. With Bradford throwing the ball, Clayton exploded as one othe top WRs then got injured in week 3 or 4 ending his season. With Clayton back to full and now adding Sims-Walker, the Rams have a very potent receiving duo.

      By the way, Arizona, with Kolb, isn't even going to win the division, much less make the playoffs. The Rams are going to win the NFC West and surprize alot of people.

        Kreutz likely not coming back to Bears. Already telling others on team he won't be back. More trouble on the O-line.

          WTF, Bears!

          I know he's aging, not Pro Bowl caliber these days, but experience is invaluable on the O-line, especially at center, where Kreutz routinely called the adjustments and hot reads. Not to mention, he ruled in the locker room. It would be sad to see a true leader walk.

              Kreutz even said he would take a one year deal for less than he made last year, but Bears said no. Door is still open, until he signs elsewhere, but it doesn't look good. Now they'll have to figure out what to do there.

              Then they go and sign another Dallas castoff, Marion Barber. But at least that should be an upgrade from Chester Taylor. Also got DT Amobi Okoye from Houston

                  If ind it funny that apparently working with Reid makes Vince Young good, but not Kolb.

                    Roy Williams stunk up the joint in Dallas, but he had good years in Detroit. He's big and could answer the challenge. I think it was worth the Bears gambling.

                        • Brandon Marshall has Borderline Personality Disorder:

                          The Dolphins' wide receiver says he was diagnosed earlier this year with borderline personality disorder, which has been known to stem from things such as unstable personal relationships, a negative self-image and a fear of failure. He made the decision to go public with the issue to raise awareness, and says he plans to eventually lobby Congress for funding to assist research efforts.

                          "For so long, I've been just trying to get help. I've been seeking help," Marshall said after practice Sunday during an interview session where he spoke for more than 30 minutes, the first 20 or so without taking a single question. "I've been talking with doctors since I've been in the NFL. No one has ever helped me. So I was praying there was a treatment out there for what I suffered from and there was."

                          Marshall told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel for a story published Sunday that he has spent $60,000 on treatment for the disorder, which according to the National Institute on Mental Health is "a serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior."

                          "BPD is a well understood psychological disorder. It's not a form of misbehavior," Mary Zanarini, a professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School who treated Marshall this summer, told the newspaper.

                          The NIMH says the disorder affects about 1 in 50 adults, making it more common than schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

                          "There comes a time in a guy like myself's life, with everything that I've been through, that you become bulletproof to the critics and to what the world thinks of you," Marshall said. "Right now, today, I am vulnerable. I am making myself vulnerable. And I want it to be clear that this is the opposite of damage control. The only reason why I'm standing here today is to use my story to help others who may suffer from what I suffer from."

                            That's funny:

                            Drew Brees: Height: 6-0
                            Mike Vick: Height: 6-0

                            Oh right. Vick killed precious dogs so he doesn't get the Ben idol treatment.
