Eagles get Spikes!

BTW all, Feeley is a competent QB, so we did have 1.

Yeah, and they got 2 Pro Bowl seasons out of him before he got derailed with injuries.

I'm hoping he doesn't end up like Kearse.

It's a good trade for the Eagles. I think Spikes will do well, and we all know Holcumb will be the QB at some point.

I didn't say good, I just said competent. You think that's a stretch?

So who's going in the top five picks next month?

I was hearing the Browns were going to take Adrian Peterson, but now that they signed Jamal Lewis, they probably will go after someone else.

Brady Quinn will probably go in top 5, but I personally think he's a bit overrated and will only be an average at best NFL qb.

Jamarcus Russell out of LSU may go number 1 to Oakland.

Can't think of anyone else right now.

Paralyzed Ex-NFL Player Stingley Dies at 55
Pats Receiver Injured by Hit From Tatum in 1978
By SOPHIA TAREEN
AP Sports
CHICAGO (April 5) - Darryl Stingley, paralyzed after a vicious hit during an NFL exhibition game nearly 30 years ago, died Thursday. He was 55.

Stingley was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital after he was found unresponsive in his Chicago home, according to Tony Brucci, an investigator with the Cook County medical examiner's office.

The cause of death was not immediately available. An autopsy was scheduled.

Stingley, a star receiver with the New England Patriots , was left a quadriplegic after he was hit from behind by Oakland 's Jack Tatum while trying to catch a pass.

The hit on Aug. 12, 1978 broke Stingley's neck, and he spent the rest of his life in a wheelchair. Stingley regained limited movement in his right arm and operated his electric wheelchair on his own. Tatum's hit became a symbol of violence in the game.

Stingley was born and raised in Chicago. A star running back at John Marshall High School, he attended Purdue on a football scholarship. In 1973, he was a first-round draft pick of the Patriots , owned by Robert Kraft .

"On behalf of the Kraft family and the entire Patriots organization, we're deeply saddened by news of Darryl Stingley's death, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Stingley family at this time," team spokesman Stacey James said.

Stingley served as executive director of player personnel for the Patriots and often visited paralyzed patients. He wrote a book about his experiences entitled "Happy to Be Alive," published in 1983, and 10 years later started a nonprofit foundation in Chicago designed to help inner-city youth.

In a 1988 Associated Press interview, he talked about the day that changed his life.

"I have relived that moment over and over again," Stingley said. "I was 26 years old at the time and I remember thinking, 'What's going to happen to me? If I live, what am I going to be like?' And then there were all those whys, whys, whys?

"It was only after I stopped asking why, that I was able to regroup and go on my with my life," he said.
A great football player who's career was cut down, and a greater human being...sad news.

Vey sad indeed. Darryl deserved better. I wonder if Tatum will be paying his respects.

Fuck PacMan! He's the NFL's worst nightmare. If you were joking it's all good, but the guy's a menace.

I know I commend the NFL Players for taking the stand they have on policing.
