Moon slams Eagles over McNabb

Count Warren Moon, who was traded by the Houston Oilers to make room for a younger replacement, among those wondering why the Eagles wound up as central players in the Donovan McNabb soap opera. "I don't know why you would get rid of a quarterback who is in the prime of his career in Donovan and go with an unknown in a young quarterback like a Kevin Kolb or a Michael Vick," Moon said. "If they're going to make a deal with the Raiders, go ahead and make the deal. What are they waiting on? It seems the longer they wait, the worse deal they're going to get closer to the draft."

NBA gives fans 1/125th of MVP vote

Going beyond the realm of affecting mere showcase performances, the NBA will become the first major professional sport in the United States to give voice to fans in naming its season MVP. The cumulative fan vote will account for one of the 125 MVP votes. The other 124 voters are writers and broadcasters in the U.S. and Canada. "This helps fans feel involved given the passion by behind some NBA fans," six-time MVP Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said. "They all have a passionately-held opinion, and this is a great way to try and include them." (USA Today) Comment

Kelly:  Irish 'stink right now'

The fourth day of spring football practice found head coach Brian Kelly in no mood for compliments. "We stink right now," the Irish first-year head coach said in a response to a rather benign/generic warm-up question. "We're just so far from where we need to be in terms of attention to detail. This is a step back today. ... You're an 18-, 19-, 20-year old and you're playing at Notre Dame and it's 70 degrees out and I've got to motivate you? That's why we're not on the same page yet." He went on to describe No. 1 quarterback Dayne Crist's fundamentals ???as sloppy as they come,??? the slot receiver position as one without any candidates he's comfortable with, and claimed to have enough unpleasant spring surprises to fill 20 minutes with the media.
