In Case You Were Wondering: Billy McMullen

Times must be tough in Seattle as the Seahawks have announced the signing of former Eagles WR Billy McMullen. The team's WR group has been desimated by injuries.

As an Eagle, McMullen had 22 receptions, 294 yards, and one TD. However, we can best remember McMullen for bringing Hank Baskett to the Eagles. During the 2006 off-season the two WRs were traded for each other, with McMullen going to the Vikings.

Looks like a good deal for the Eagles. Baskett is one of only 6 NFL players in the history of the game to have three career catches of 85 yards or more.

Oh and in case you were wondering, following their Week 1 performance and the injury to Tom Brady, the Eagles have moved up from 25-1 odds to 14-1 odds to win the Super Bowl this season.

The NFC West doesn't deserve to send a team to the playoffs this year! Let 'em get a BCS slot instead (vs. East Carolina sounds about right!).
