Into The Unknown

Tonight begins the new NFL season.  That’s something I’m usually pretty excited for, but this year there’s something sort of missing.  Every year for the last decade at this time, I’d be looking at the Philadelphia Eagles and deciding whether Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook, and Brian Dawkins could win the division, win the NFC, or…

Third Time’s A Cha— oh, wait.

One thing that was odd about being on the road for three weeks and being very busy and distracted while we were in Virginia was that the end of the NFL season came and went without a chance to opine on it here. When I left, the Eagles had beaten the Giants to take control…

Good Til The Last Drop

In an immensely entertaining game, the Dallas Cowboys won their home opener on Monday night, beating the Philadelphia Eagles 41-37 in a barnburner of a game that had just about a little bit of everything. Kick-return for a touchdown?  Check. T.O. big bomb for TD? Check. Half-a-dozen lead changes? Check. End-zone fumble resulting in TD?…

2007 Philadelphia Eagles — The Best of the Worst

That’s right.  I’m stating it here.  The Philadelphia Eagles are the last place team that no one wants to play.  Compared to their other last place brethren (below are the records and season point differential), the Birdz are a juggernaut.
