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…

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…

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?…

I Have The Audacity to Hope – The 2008 Philadelphia Eagles

The Summer Olympics provided a wonderful distraction to training-camp antics and the dog-days of baseball’s summer, but now that September is here, can you feel the onset of the NFL season?   Regardless of whether there’s any crispness in the air, the for-real season begins this Thursday in an NFC match-up between the Championship-defending Giants and…

Good Job, Eli

There.  I said it. In a fascinating and wonderfully entertaining game, Eli Manning – yes, the same Eli Manning maligned here throughout this (and last) NFL season – lead his team into a frigid Lambeau Field where they defeated the Green Bay Packers 23-20 in overtime to win the NFC Championship. Manning Wins Eli kept…

An NFC East Fan’s Dilemma

Who do you root for (or more appropriately root against more…) this weekend when the hated Cowboys play the hated Giants? Let’s see: Everyones Sweetheart Romo The Cowboys still try to lay claim to the title of America’s Team and were incredibly easy to hate whenever Michael Irvin took the field. Though I would argue…
