I really don't spend enough time pointing out the fabulous work being done by the other football bloggers here at sports Blogs Nation. I should do that regularly, and today I will begin attempting to do just that.
So, let's go Touring the Nation.
Bolts From The Blue compares Philip Rivers first three seasons to Brett Favre
BFTB: "At this point in their careers, these two quarterbacks are similar. They each started strong, took a step back and exploded in their third seasons. I haven't found anyone else that could match that pattern, with this much improvement in their third season as a starting QB. So, could Favre's seasons following his third be a identifier of what to expect from Philip Rivers in the next few years? We should all hope so."
My take: I'm not buying the comparison until Rivers starts winning championships.
Mile High Report polls its readers about Brandon Marshall
More Denver fans want Marshall to remain with the team than you might think.
Donovan blogs about "Camp McNabb" in Arizona - Bleeding Green Nation
Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb hosted members of the Eagles, Packers, Jets, & Cardinals at his yearly camp in Arizona.
My take: Hey, Eli, this sounds like a really good idea.
Food Critique of Washington Redskins' Chris Cooley's Sandwich - Hogs Haven
"Chris Cooley invented his own sandwich (Peanut Butter/Ham/Mustard), which he mentioned on ESPN .. .I made 3 and took them to a DC bar for a random taste test. When I ate this sandwich, my mouth went dry faster than a ferret eating 13 cotton balls. Yes, that makes no sense, but a sandwich with peanut butter needs SOMETHING with moisture."
My take: Cooley's a great player, and a lot of fun as a blogger. As a chef, though, he apparently doesn't cut the mustard.
My take: I guess with Jake Delhomme at the helm it's probably not surprising Panthers' fans have a healthy amount of interest in Vick.
Ronde Barber Still Silent - Buc 'Em
Buc 'Em: "Earlier this off-season, Ronde Barber made it known that he was boycotting the media, due to their criticism of his play last year. He had/has no intentions of granting interviews or giving sound bites and is planning on "letting his play speak for itself".
My take: A Barber who won't talk to the media? Tiki's TV career is in the toilet. Maybe Ronde will do an interview with his brother to help him out.
2009 San Francisco 49ers: Best Case Scenario - Niners Nation
A look at the best case scenario for the 49ers in 2009.
My take: Niners Nation came up with 11-5 best-case for their team. That's not happening.
CSR Fan Poll: Michael Vick to Carolina? - Cat Scratch Reader
A Carolina Panther fan poll gauging fan interest in the Panthers signing QB Michael Vick.
NFL Scout on Bills' O-Line: "HORRIBLE" - Buffalo Rumblings
An NFL scout called the Buffalo Bills' re-tooled offensive line "HORRIBLE." Buffalo Rumblings doesn't necessarily blame him.
My take: Hmmm ... and Jason Peters is now playing for the Eagles. T.O. won't be catching many balls with Trent Edwards flat on his back.
