Eagles Pinkston Out For The Year: Heres your break TO .... hold out now and you will have the Eagles held hostage .

In the lead-in to this story Friday night on ESPNews, J.L. Stewart said (not an exact quote, but damn close): "Philly fans won't have Todd Pinkston to kick around this season...the man known most for dropping passes and avoiding contact is out for the season after tearing his Achilles tendon after tripping on a sideline route in camp today..." Maybe a bit harsh for a guy who just lost his whole freakin' season.

Harsh but still truthfully funny . The fact that he avoids contact then gets a year ending injury tripping is kind of kismet or at the least poetic justice . Bites ya one way or another .

Pinkston stinks. Plain and simple. I've made my feelings on contract holdouts known many times, but I will admit, the Eagles need T.O. badly. Their other receivers, including the big mouth they let go in the off-season, are absolutely terrible.
