In the 4th round of the 2012 draft, with the 123rd overall selection the Philadelphia Eagles picked Brandon Boykin, a 5-9, 182 corner from Georgia.

Add to that he was a returner. He was one of the best dual returners in college football this year, so we welcome that skill onto our football team.

Many observers felt the Eagles' two biggest needs going into the draft were outside linebacker and safety. They addressed the first one early on in the draft, selecting speedy Mychael Kendricks of Cal, a three-down linebacker who will move to the head of the depth-chart line at SAM. But they didn't take a safety with any of their nine picks. They did sign one after the...

So, I watched T.O.’s appearance on Dr. Phil on Tuesday. And it was just sad.
It was sad seeing a man with little maturity and no sense of responsibility in the midst of ruining the lives four innocent children.
Four children by four different women. You have to ask questions about the decision-making abilities of all involved, especially baby mamas 3 and 4, but in the end, it’s...
