Howie Roseman is wasting zero time trying to correct the mistakes made by Chip Kelly a year ago.

The legal tampering period started at 12:00 pm, and already the Eagles are reportedly making big waves around the league. According to multiple reports, the Eagles are trading Byron Maxwell and Kiko Alonso to the Miami Dolphins for undisclosed draft picks.

The trade was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

Johnny G’s Week 13 Thursday Night Pick

December 3rd, 2009 by Johnny G | 21 Comments | Filed in Football, General

Thursday Night

After a Sunday split, my record now stands at 9-3 on the season. Picks for Sunday will be posted by Saturday Morning. Enjoy the game and the winnings.

Buffalo Bills (+3) over New York Jets/ 8:20 PM NFL Network

After stepping in for Trent Edwards, Harvard graduate Ryan Fitzpatrick has surprisingly thrived in the once stagnant Bills offense. After years and years of throwing his quarterbacks under the bus, what does Terrell Owens have to say about journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick? “He is allowing us to make plays that weren’t there before.” That’s some pretty high praise from a Wide Receiver who was not satisfied with Donovan Mcnabb, Tony Romo, or Jeff Garcia. After turning the offense over to Fitzpatrick and firing Head Coach Dick Jauron, the Bills have also replaced Marshawn Lynch as the starting tailback with the explosive and dynamic Fred Jackson. Now that Fitzpatrick has figured out a way to get Owens more involved in the offense, the offense is also much more dynamic. Coming off an impressive victory over the Miami Dolphins, where the Bills defense rattled Dolphins’ QB Chad Henne, the team is clicking on all cylinders and is looking as good as it has all season.

On the other hand you have a Jets team who comes in with rookie QB Mark Sanchez, who continues to struggle with turnovers and is single handedly holding his team back from competing week in and week out. Expect the Bills defense to follow the same script that each defense has used against Sanchez and the Jets all season. Blitz, blitz, and blitz some more. Each week Sanchez has looked more and more like a rookie and I don’t see the trend stopping this week. Just last week Sanchez was throwing late over the middle and off of his back foot against the blitz, which are both cardinal sins at the quarterback position.

Johnny G’s Week 12 Picks

November 29th, 2009 by Johnny G | 2 Comments | Filed in General

   After a tough loss on Thanksgiving with the Raiders, my record now stands at 8-2. This is a light football card, so there will only be two picks this week.

Miami Dolphins(-3.5) Over Buffalo Bills
Coming off an impressive Thursday night win over the Carolina Panthers, the Dolphins enter this game clicking on all cylinders. Chad Henne is effectively running a traditional offense and Ricky Williams looks like he did five years ago. The Bills come into this game in a state of turmoil after head coach Dick Jauron was fired and their new interim head coach has decided to yet again switch quarterbacks. The Bills will not be able to stop Williams on the ground and the Dolphins cover the 3.5 on the road. Roll with the fish.

Double Your Money Pick of The Week

Seattle Seahawks (-4) over St. Louis Rams
With Marc Bulger out of this contest and Steven Jackson currently listed as questionable, the Seahawks should not have much of a problem with this horrific Rams team. Matt Hasselback along with Julius Jones should be able to muster up enough offense to get the job done and with Kyle Boller now leading the Rams, they very well may get shutout. This is a pretty easy winner. Take the Seahawks laying four on the road.
