EARLIER on another post I wrote that "I am DYING to put up some Eagles stuff."

So too is Dave Spadaro, I think.

He is seriously reaching to have something to print. He has a front page article up there about a CFL DE, who's rehabbing a season ending knee injury. 

This is an excerpt:

McCoy, 6-3, 261, is coming off of a two-year stint (2011-12) with the CFL's Calgary Stampeders, where he registered 29 tackles and 5.0 sacks. He recorded 3.0 sacks for the Stampeders in 2012 before suffering a season-ending knee injury. McCoy recently indicated that his rehab is "moving at a fast pace."

McCoy was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL Draft and spent his rookie season on the practice squads of the Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans. He then signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 2011 offseason, but was released prior to the season opener.

Why is this even worth a mention? What are the odds that this guy even makes the final cutdown, let alone the roster?!

The only reason this article ever saw the light of day is because there is a massive vacuum out here regarding the Eagles. Nature apparently abhors it so much that its even desperate enough to try and fill it with something Spuds wrote. 

It's been said that the only bad press, is no press. If that's true then it seems that the Eagles are hard at work ruining their rep through irrelevance.
