Flying Into The Unknown

Well — here it is, the beginning of another NFL season.  Last night's Steelers-Titans game was pretty entertaining to watch, though certain of the Steelers faithful must have had their hearts in their throats at certain points, I imagine. Going into the last several seasons, I used to think I knew where the Eagles would…

Vick-tim of Circumstance?

One of the other things I missed getting to post about while I was on vacation occurred on the day we flew to the east coast.  In a move shocking to many, the Philadelphia Eagles signed Michael Vick as their back-up QB.  Certainly, I was surprised and the headlines were in a pretty large font…

As the Pro Bowl (such as it is) completed the 2008-9 NFL season yesterday, it seemed appropriate to share something a friend of mine sent to me.  Awesome (and awesomely depressing) because it's so right on target… Classic This DVD comes jam-packed with the following bonus features:  Donovan McNabb's regurgitations in 3-D  TO's unedited driveway…

Force a TO on defense and have enough sputtering offense to keep it close. 3. Make half-time adjustments and take control in the 3rd quarter 4. Use feral defense late in the…

Mission Improbable

So about a month ago, I stopped really writing about the Eagles.  After a demoralizing loss to the Ravens, the Birdz were at 5-5-1.  They’d benched Donovan McNabb after two really egregious performances.  After “earning” a tie with the hapless Bengals, I wrote: On Sunday November 16th, we are finally able to put this Eagles…

Happy Birthday, Donovan

Today is Donovan McNabb’s 32nd birthday.  I can’t imagine it’s a very happy one.  He was benched last week (first time in his career, though rightfully so) midway through the Eagles humiliating loss to the Ravens which was on the heels of a truly wretched performance versus the Bengals. Sidelined Donovan’s played his whole 10-year…
