El Rumor Mill

My sources tell me...

NFL
  • There seems to be something brewing between the 49ers and Eagles that could possibly have Kevin Kolb landing in the Bay. Talks seem to have started out with the Eagles wanting the 49ers 1st round pick (7th overall) in exchange for the former University of Houston QB. I feel like this may be a little bit high for Kolb considering that in 5 starts last year, Kolb through an equal number of INT's-TD's (7-7) and actually had a lower QB Rating than Alex Smith (76.1 to Smith's 82.1). I definitely view Kolb as a better QB than Smith, and perhaps a change of scenery would do him well, but I don't know if he is worth the #7 overall pick in the 2011 draft.

  • The NFL and the Players Union entered into their second day of talks with a federal mediator in what seems to be a last ditch attempt to get an agreement ironed out before the CBA runs out in about two weeks. Both the owners and the Player's Association keep crying foul over each other being "greedy". None of this should matter to the average fan. All is irrelevant until all beer sizes are created unequal! (See Below)

NBA
  • Carmelo blah blah blah Knicks blah blah blah Nets blah blah blah Eddy Curry is fat.
Soccer
  • FC Barcelona seems poised to try and make a play this summer for Arsenal winger Samir Nasri. These rumors seem to have picked up after Arsenal bested Barcelona 2-1 in Champions League play earlier in the week. Barca boss Pep Guardiola seems poised to drop as much as $60 million on the young Frenchman. The second leg of the Arsenal-Barcelona duel will be played in Barcelona on March 8th.
