Eagles Acquire OT Peters From Bills

Well 1 of the 5 trades from the article I wrote the other day has just happened. The Eagles dealt Buffalo a 1st round draft pick for OT Jason Peters after Buffalo could not agree on terms with Peters as reported by

Now lets just wait and see what happens with Edwards, Boldin, and Ochocinco.

Also everyone pray that Miles Austin gets that long term contract that we are hearing about.

5 Possible Trades That Could Affect The NFC East

NFCI was browsing and found this article on 5 possible trades that could happen and almost every one could affect the NFC East.

1. Braylon Edwards from Clevland to either the Giants or Eagles who have the highest need for a reciever at this point in the league.

2. Jason Peters from Buffalo to the Eagles who are currently having a huge hole at tackle and Peters could solve that issue for them, but there is the issue with him wanting to be the highest paid tackle in the league which caused a hold-out in Buffalo last year so there is no clear cut case on wether the Eagles will pay him the 11 million per year he wants or not.

3. Julius Peppers from Carolina to New England. I included this off the list because of all the rumors that he may end up in Dallas, which I highly doubt but if he did some how end up in Dallas he would be a perfect compliment to Olshanky on the other side.

4. Chad Ochocinco from Cincinnati to the Eagles or Giants, although with the drama these teams recieved from Terrell Owens and Plaxico Burress neither of these two teams would be to inclined to go for him unless they cant get Edwards from Clevland or Boldin from Arizona.

5. Anquan Boldin from Arizona to the Eagles or Giants, who ever does not get Edwards will go for Boldin and if they dont like Arizonas asking price look for Ochocinco to end up with one of these two teams for 2009.

Cowboys-Bengals… Oh yea and a guy named “Chad Ochocinco”

Good Afternoon Cowboy Fans…

Looking ahead to the Dallas Cowboys-Cincinnati Bengals game this Sunday, I look at this game as just another step on the Cowboy’s journey to Tampa and the Super Bowl. Over the next four weeks, the Cowboys host the Bengals, travel to Arizona, St. Louis, and back home to play the Buccaneers. I really feel the Cowboys even though not playing well this past Sunday against the Redskins’, have a great opportunity to be 7-1 when they make their annual stop to the beautiful confines of Giants Stadium for their game with the Super Bowl champs.

But first things first, The Cincinnati Bengals. On paper the Bengals are not a very good team. This team possesses a lot of talent, but year after year they seem to always find a way to hang around the cellar of their division. It would not be fair to the Bengals though without mentioning that even though there are in the cellar, they are not alone as they share the room with their cross state rivals the Browns.

The Bengals come into Dallas on Sunday ranked 30th in offense and 24th in defense. That is not good news for Cincinnati fans when they will be facing the # 1 offense, and the 9th best defense in the NFL. That can only be a recipe for disaster and an opportunity for a lot of fans to beat the traffic leaving Texas Stadium.

Now I will enjoy the game as I enjoy all the Cowboy’s games (well didn’t enjoy last Sunday much), but we can just keep on kicking that dog over and over. I will be paying very close attention to a guy named “Chad Ochocinco” formally an artist known as Chad Johnson. “Chad Ochocinco”…hmm… Kind of sounds familiar I guess. There used to be a guy called “Prince” that became an artist formally known as “Prince”, then just “Prince” again. Man this is getting confusing to say the least. Of course, we also had a sport’s icon named Cassius Marcellus Clay who later became Muhammad Ali, but never confuse Chad Johnson aka “Chad Ochocinco” with the great one Ali!! Johnson changed is surname to “Ochocinco” which is Spanish for eight five, which is the number he wears.

Chad Johnson or “Chad Ochocinco” (I love saying that name) is off to a very rocky start. Johnson has 11 catches for 116 yds and one touchdown in the first 4 games, and has one end zone celebration. A lot of Bengals fans believe that when Johnson changed his name it put some kind of curse on him. When I researched for this story, I noticed that he has been known to get off to slow starts, but nothing compared to this year. Johnson is a very talented receiver and has led the AFC in receiving the last 4 years. Not to mention he has been to 5 Pro-Bowls.

I just often think the real problem with Johnson is that he spends more time worrying about himself than winning football games. In the past he has changed his teeth (or his grill he likes to call it), “mohawked” and colored his hair (blonde I might add) and has had his share of gilded earrings. In 2006 he was voted by Fox Sports as one of the top ten showboats in professional sports. Lastly, I remember one of his most memorable moments in 2007 during a Monday Night game against the Ravens. Johnson caught the first touchdown of the night, proceeded to grab a jacket resembling a Hall of Fame inductee and pranced up and down the Bengal’s sideline to the cheers of all his adoring fans.

The Bengals will come into “Big D” ready to play and with the new insurgence of Chris Perry at tailback, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Carson Palmer and “Chad Ochocinco”; they will not be a team to look past. I just think at the end of the day, the Cowboys will add another victory notch to their belt and continue their journey to reach that pinnacle of being the first team in NFL history to win 6 Super Bowls.

Oh by the way Chad… in case you did not know, the real spelling is actually “Ochenta Y Cinco”, but I guess that is not easy to spell when you write a check. So whether you like “Chad Ochocinco” or not it should be interesting to see if he can out-do our showman, T.O..
