North Stars

As well as Mello and I get along here in vox-land, we were squarely in opposing cheering sections today as the Philadelphia Eagles traveled to Minnesota to face the NFC North champion Vikings in a Wild-Card playoff match-up. As an Eagles fan, it was a tense game.  Even with the Eagles leading (16-14) 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…

On Sunday November 16th, we are finally able to put this Eagles season to rest.  The end came in the unexpected form of a 13-13 tie (yes, a tie) against the hapless (1-8) Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. As someone that has truly appreciated all that the Andy Reid-Donovan McNabb Era has brought to…

Giant Disappointment

The New York Giants rolled into Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and rolled through the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football, winning 37-31. The Eagles looked to get out to a quick start, intercepting an Eli Manning pass and quickly turning it into a TD in the game’s opening moments.  The Giants responded quickly – marching…

Bird On Bird Violence

The Eagles are making a strong case that they're the best bird-team in the NFL after back-to-back victories against the Atlanta Falcons and the Seattle Seahawks.  Ryan Sacked The Eagles improved to 5-3, doing something they've occasionally faltered doing under Andy Reid: beating teams they should.   The offense has been more productive (though it…

Back From The Brink

So, I’m lucky that the Eagles are a fairly “big-name” team in the NFL.  They get a fair number of nationally televised broadcasts.  The problem comes when they’re not covered; because I always end up watching the scrolling scores on the games that are being shown, or like yesterday – “watching” the live updates on…

It’s Not Easy Being Green

So, some of you may be aware of the friendly wager that’s been going on between Grandma-P and me over games played between the Eagles and the Redskins – with lunch provided to the winner.  We split last season and carried the practice over to this year, too.   In fact, some of you may have…

Eagles “D” Produces Treats

I have a friend at work.  Her name is Lisa.  She’s nice.  Works hard.  Cheerful.  Smart.  Witty. She also happens to be a Steelers fan.  So, while we were out at a get together the other day in honor of someone from our group that’s leaving, we got to talking about football, specifically this week’s…

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?…
