He should be a nice backup/complement to Gore. Well, until he suffers a catastrophic injury in Week 10.

I knew he'd be back. Now I can only hope he has a stellar statistical season, gets to the Super Bowl, and single-handedly blows it.

I hope he makes it no farther than the NFC title game.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin was taken to a hospital by ambulance after collapsing at Thursday's practice, and coach Brad Childress said Harvin suffered another migraine headache attack.

Harvin, who has dealt with migraines most of his life, has been unable to practice for most of training camp because of the headaches and their debilitating symptoms.
I know migraines suck and all but is a "migraine headache attack" a real thing?

EDIT: Alright, Migraine attack is a real thing the adding the headache part in the middle made it sound weird.

Kolb not having a good game. Some really really bad throws. OL not having a good game also. People ***** about Asante yet anyone who replaces him cant do shyt. Hanson keeps getting burned. Allen started off rusty then ended VERY well. Smart player

Jackson leading his team again.

Maclin is hurt. Havent heard anything about him.


And Jean-Gilles is retarded.... how many times can you do the same wrong thing?

that ocho/TO interview might as well have been 5 minutes of them butt naked, stroking their own and each other's members.

I thought pre-season was supposed to try and find more guys who can play. So far the guy who has gotten the most work is the kicker.

Until this team can convert 3rd and short situations (see: ability to gain yards running the football) with some hint of regularity, nothing else will matter. The amount of drives that are going to stall because we can't get 1 or 2 yards on 3rd down is what's going to doom this team in the end (again). Hell, our first team offense still hasn't scored a TD yet (although they had one taken off the board tonight because of that dreaded illegal formation penalty... do our offensive linemen not know the rule, or something? I mean, I know there's more emphasis on it this season, but come on, get your **** together, you fat ****s). Looks like a career year for David Akers.

We just don't have the kind of personality that makes teams respect us -- we don't physically enforce our will upon the opponent. We're ******* (alternative word for cats) on the football field, and it's something for which I'll never forgive Andy Reid. I'm hoping once Mike Bell gets healthy, he can be the hammer who lowers the boom on opponents in the run game, but if our OL isn't up to the task, then we're screwed anyway.

I'm starting to feel pretty comfortable with Kolb. Obviously there are things he needs to work on and he'll make mistakes, but you can see that the guy can play and run an offense. I know this isn't exactly a staple of Philadelphia sports fans, but patience is a virtue... and it will be necessary to exercise said patience with Kevin Kolb. Give the kid a chance, and he WILL succeed.

PS - That Maclin injury looked bad. As soon as it happened and he motioned to the sidelines, I immediately thought he separated his shoulder. Any post-game reports? Even before that injury occurred, I did a total 180 on my prediction that Maclin would have a better statistical season than Desean. You can just see the kind of chemistry Kolb and Jackson have, and Desean pretty much has the ability to get open at will. He'll be catching a lot of passes this season.

PPS - Loved what I saw from the defense tonight. They were flying out there and swarming around the football, not to mention laying out some bone-crushing hits. I was really encouraged.

I think he is okay but MJG was making him look bad. When the guard doesnt get set properly it completely ****s the tackle. How did the kid from Northern Iowa play in the second half? He looked good in the other game with all those pancakes. I fell asleep for the second half.

Kolb and the running game I am not ready to judge because of how terrible the oline played. I think the tackles will be fine but they will look bad until the center and guards figure out how to play.

And not as the best LT in football? So, wait, he's going against the opinion of Andy Reid? What the hell is going on?! Look at the kind of money Peters is making, and then look at his performance so far as an Eagle (and to all those about to say he made the Pro Bowl last year, save it... if you think he deserved it based on his play, you didn't watch the games) -- it's nauseating.

Not being able to convert 3rd and shorts because we can't effectively run the football is going to cost us 2 wins this season, minimum.

Pro-Bowls aren't always the best barometer because if the first 12-13 LT's don't want or cannot go, then every LT in the conference is a Pro-Bowler. Donny was a pro-bowler last year because Drew Brees had better things to do.

Hence why I told any potential Jason Peters defenders not to cite his Pro Bowl appearance last season as an appropriate indication of his level of play....
