Hugh Douglas Calls Out McNabb

Hugh Douglas Calls Out McNabb

Hugh Douglas thinks Donovan can lead on the field, but in the locker room, he can't get in anyone's face:

"The thing that Donovan needs — it's been proven, especially this year
— he needs other people to lead," Douglas told WIP-AM (610). "He's not
a leader. He doesn't want to lead. He is the leader on the field as a
quarterback; he isn't a team leader. He needs a good supporting cast."

When contacted by the Philadelphia Inquirer later Tuesday, Douglas
said, "In order to be a leader, you have to be in people's face; if
that is what you think, he isn't that guy. Donovan will lead on the
football field, and if you need him to give a Vince Lombardi speech, he
won't."

Perhaps the best thing to come out of the MSNBC article is Sheldon Brown stepping up and going after Hugh a bit:

"To me, that is disrespecting guys he played
with," Brown told the newspaper. "How can you say guys like Brian
Dawkins or Jon Runyan aren't leaders? It's a comment that doesn't speak
fairly to guys we have in the locker room, and I think that is just
radio talk.

"I
don't care what Hugh says," Brown said. "Quite frankly, the guys I am
playing with I trust, and I trust the leaders we have. I am around them
every day, and Hugh isn't around them every day."

It seems like football players are tearing into other players when it really doesn't matter.  No offense to Hugh Douglas, but he is no longer a football player, no longer a team mate of Donovan.  It's nice to see one of Donovan's team mates stick up for the team and number 5.  Sheldon Brown, if he isn't already, will be a leader.

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract. 

Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.  

In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015. 

Thomas (6-5, 315 pounds) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing against the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016. 

In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries. 

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.

Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.

Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.

"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.

Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.

It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
