That headline about Jake Scott actually comes from BriSuksEgg FF League President JB-Sage-Lion, who it turns out has been churning out entertaining pearls of humor and wisdom in his running commentary at the ESPN league office. I just discovered the link to the actual FF league office thanks to Sage-Lion... if you hit this link, you will be taken to a satellite world of football fun and information JB-style:
Here's a sample of JB's running commentary: "We shoulda signed [tackle/guard] Jake Scott a month ago..." [he's right!]...Former Champ Jerked Angora Rabbit wins The Bri Ass Hat for a 3rd week in a row! Amazing! 3-way tie this week.... Jerked Angora Rabbit sat Stafford and his 36... Bri Lion and Dem sat Andy Dalton and his 36.... and Spliffy sat Rivers and his 36! 3 way tie! Amazing! "Huds Strumpets coming on strong behind AD, The Muscle Hamster and his powerful D's!!...

The Philadelphia Eagles have two highly touted corners in Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie whose futures with the team are uncertain after this season.
Rodgers-Cromartie is set to become a free agent. However, making a deal with him or any other player is not a priority for the Birds at the moment. With a 3-6 record and preparing to start a rookie quarterback on Sunday...
Actor Bradley Cooper plays Pat Solitano in his upcoming movie Silver Linings Playbook alongside Robert De Niro, who plays Cooper's obsessed Philadelphia Eagles father in the movie. Cooper said he and his father, who has since passed, were huge Eagles fans, which helped with his role in the movie.
"Anytime you can make a connection with your own life and your role, it...
Michael Vick isn’t expected to play tackle football this weekend, as the Eagles turn to Nick Foles while Vick attempts to recover from a concussion.
It’s uncertain when — or even if — Vick will return this season. If he doesn’t, there’s a chance that he doesn’t even return to Philadelphia. He’s shown flashes of brilliance at times in Philly, but the overall body of...
There’s no question that the Philadelphia Eagles have been a big disappointment this season. One of their biggest problems on the defensive side of the ball has been the play of Nnamdi Asomugha who still hasn’t lived up to the free agent mega deal he signed last season.
There’s a chance that the eagles might cut Asomugha this offseason if he doesn’t take a pay cut.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that the Philadelphia Eagles will most likely begin the process of cleaning house after the season.
McLane mentions that the Eagles are projected to be close to $18 million over the salary cap next season, so it makes sense that they would begin to address some of their high-salaried players.
Has a $15 million...
Nick Foles practiced with the first team this week and stuck around for extra film work.
He's ready to make his first career NFL start for the Philadelphia Eagles.
All he needs now is to officially and publicly be named the starter. The Eagles again practiced another day without injured quarterback Michael Vick. The veteran has sat out since suffering a severe concussion in...
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will miss Sunday's game vs. the Washington Redskins due to the effects of a concussion.
Rookie Nick Foles, who replaced Vick during the 38-23 loss to Dallas on Sunday, and who practiced with the first team all week, will get his first NFL start in a battle of 3-6 teams fighting to save their seasons.

Since Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Nick Foles is slated to make his first career start this Sunday, and perhaps play the remainder of the 2012 season, I’ve had a few people bring up the David Carr debate as a reason not to let him play yet.
What do I mean by that? In case you didn’t know or need a memory refresher, David Carr was the No. 1 overall pick...
Last week: 18 (-3)
It was a very smart of Andy Reid to “rest” Michael Vick the rest of the way. He’s not making the playoffs, but he can still save his job if Nick Foles goes say 4-3. He can blame their slow start on Vick and his history developing quarterbacks will probably convince management to let Reid stick around and develop the promising young quarterback...
I’ll never fumble this Juan…
The disdain of all fantasy owners is the amount of touches that LeSean McCoy gets. We all see what he is capable of when he gets the ball in his hands. We will see an increase in touches with Nick Foles behind center. Maybe not.
OC Marty Mornhinweg: “I think LeSean is eighth in carries and fourth in total touches; I don’t think there’s...
When Michael Vick got concussed in the second quarter of the Eagles’ 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, first it is a real shame for such a gamer.
It might be a blessing in disguise for Philadelphia Eagle fans.
Not that Nick Foles will definitely be a World Beater, but the dude is 6’6”, 243 pounds, compared to Michael Vicks’ 6-0, 215 pounds.
Foles in size and stature is closest...
