I think a marketing ploy must be pretty effective when you don’t know if it’s ingenious or offensive.

Both CSN reporter D-Gunn and Philadelphia Eagles corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie call the CB’s new look a “green mohawk,” but I’m not so sure. It’s not really a mohawk per se. It’s more of a green racing stripe down the top of an otherwise normal haircut, yes?

The eternal battle for Philadelphia’s column inches continued on Wednesday, as the Eagles refused to let the Phillies and Cole Hamels hog the spotlight. They went out and made a headline-stealing splash with the acquisition of one Mat McBriar, punter. We can’t wait to see the cover of the Daily News tomorrow!

While they are constantly tinkering with the 90-man roster, it’s not always the Eagles make a move of consequence in late July. This week, there might be two.
The Birds tried out four punters on Monday, including two-time Pro Bowler and former Dallas Cowboy Mat McBriar, who Reuben Frank believes will eventually sign in Philadelphia.
