Les Bowen, of the Philadelphia Daily News, reports Philadelphia Eagles DT Corey Simon, the team's franchise player, is still looking for a long-term deal and does not like the idea of risking a career-altering injury without the compensation of a large signing bonus. He said he recently discussed the situation with Eagles head coach Andy Reid. However, he said Philadelphia has not shown any interest in offering him a long-term deal.
Eagles | Simon Trade Talks with Ravens Dead? - from http://www.KFFL.com Tue, 5 Apr 2005 09:39:37 -0700
Les Bowen, of the Philadelphia Daily News, reports trade talks between the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens regarding Eagles' DT Corey Simon have already broken down per a league source. Simon confirmed there had been some conversation but later said there is nothing going on at this time. The Ravens are reportedly no longer interested because the long-term deal Simon is looking for is more than they are interested in paying. Reuben Frank, of PhillyBurbs.com, reports Simon said he has not received an offer from the Ravens.
trade talks may be down, but I still think they're not out. He'll come around.

How are they favorites? Indy, SD, Pats, and Pitt really should all be given the same odds as the Ravens, considering the Ravens didn't even make the playoffs last year. I love the moves they made, but in a tough AFC that doesn't make a previous non-playoff team automatic superbowl favorites.

I don't see that team being so good as to hand them the conference, let alone their division.
defense and matt stover can score our points, just like they did in 2000. by the way, our defense (not a balanced team) took us to and won us a superbowl...
