Westbrook on the Move and Chattin’ With Celek

After flirting with the Rams a couple weeks ago, Brian Westbrook is now heading to Washington for a visit. Westy and McNabb together again? Maybe. Who’s next, Tra Thomas and Jon Runyan?

Adding Westbrook makes little sense considering the ‘Skins already have Portis, Larry Johnson and Willie Parker. But Mike Shanahan is a genius, so he must know what he’s doing. Wink, wink.


I love Live Chats on NFL.com. Especially when it’s a player doing the chatting. Earlier today Brent Celek conducted a thirty minute Q&A session and I was there to take it in. It took a few attempts until one of my brilliant queries got through, but Brent was happy to respond.

I’ll have you know, I was the only one to get a “great question” from Brent. I rule.

BC also chimed in about the Philly media and his favorite cheesesteak joint.

The media tells the truth? No way!

He surprised me with the Jim’s Steaks answer, but having sampled one there a couple years ago, I can honestly say they are pretty damn tasty. Maybe not the best I ever had, but very, very close.

    Nice! Jim’s makes, by and large, the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia, yet never seems to get the recognition it deserves. I think Celek has now eclipsed Trent Cole as my favorite Eagle. Good stuff.

    I’ve always loved Brent the player. He’s on his way to being one of the best tight ends in the league. This off-season he’s really gone out of the way to prove how cool he is off the field.

    He simply gets it. He’s all over twitter and facebook reaching out to fans and making up contests to give away free stuff. I can’t remember a player specifically reaching out to engage the fans the way he has.

    Brent is the man. I’m trying to score an interview with him. Should be fun if I can get him.
