Cushing loses bet, wears Washington gear

College football gear bets are extremely popular among NFL players, and one of last week’s biggest upsets led to an extremely dour-looking Brian Cushing wearing a full Washington outfit. Cushing’s USC Trojans lost to teammate Chris Polk’s Huskies 17-12 last Thursday, and over the weekend, he had to pay up on their bet. Man..I tried to tell my boy @brian56cushing...

Steelers Should Poke Around On Polk

Earning $1.542 million a season in 2015 as a backup running back in the NFL is probably not a bad gig if you can get it, but that payday wasn’t evidently big enough for Chris Polk to sign his restricted tender prior to the start of the Philadelphia Eagles offseason program. As a result of […] Steelers Should Poke Around On Polk is a post from: The post Steelers Should Poke...

Odd man out: What should the Philadelphia Eagles do with Chris Polk?

Last offseason when former Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman chose to keep running back Chris Polk rather than adding Kenjon Barner or Henry Josey to the roster (both of whom shined in the preseason) he felt compelled to defend his decision publicly. Now, his conquering overlord Chip Kelly may have to do the same this year if Polk is still around on September 1st...

Chris Polk tries to gift a ball to fan, but toss hits another woman

Sometimes, it doesn't pay to be nice. Philadelphia Eagles running back Chris Polk pulled off a nifty run for a touchdown on Sunday against the Houston Texans. And when he reached the end zone, he thought he would do a favor for some Eagles fans sitting in the end zone seats, by tossing them the ball. But there's a reason why Polk doesn't play quarterback: His toss veered right instead...

Philadelphia Eagles GM defends choice to keep Chris Polk on roster

In my opinion the most perplexing move for the Philadelphia Eagles this week came when they decided to keep running back Chris Polk on the final 53 man roster, even after he did not play a single snap this preseason and several other backs made quite an impression. Matthew Tucker scored four touchdowns in August and that only earned him a spot on the team’s practice squad. Henry...

Polk already has 2 TDs for Philly - on 9 carries

Chris Polk heard of the player, he just didn't know about the stat. When the Philadelphia Eagles second-year running back scored on a 38-yard touchdown run in a 34-20 win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday, it was his second touchdown on his ninth career carry. The last Eagles running back to score twice that quickly was Charlie Garner, who scored two touchdowns on his first five...
