Saying Thank You To A Legend

Legend (noun) “One that inspires legends or achieves legendary fame” The word “legend” is thrown about all too often. In fact, that last sentence is too.  Who, though, would dare argue that Brian Dawkins is not worthy of the title? I talked episode 135 about why Brian Dawkins is so special to me as an Eagle […]

The Value Of A Win

Each win is worth the same at the end of the season, but this one means so much right now. Despite turnovers and penalties, the Eagles are finding a way to win and, as we all know, winning becomes a habit. The performance last week was embarrassingly poor, but it all changed on Sunday. The […]

Playoff Bound!

As an Eagles fan living in the UK, timezones can be a real issue. Primetime games start at 1.20am and keeping in touch with friends in Philadelphia is difficult because when I want to chat during the evening, they’re still at work or spending time with the family. However, there are advantages. 1pm and 4.15pm […]

NFC East Prediction 2011

This time last year I was talking about the new era under Kevin Kolb and how the Eagles could well be a team in transition. Now, Kolb’s career in Philly is over. Blink and you’ll have missed it! Was last year a transitional season? I think it was meant to be. I don’t think that […]

NFC East Prediction 2010 – Review

Back in September, I attempted to predict the 2010 NFC East regular season standings based on the previous decades’ records for each of the teams. You can read the original article by clicking here. After much number crunching, I came up with:- Eagles    10-6 Giants     9-7 Cowboys    9-7 Redskins   7-9 How accurate did this method […]

More Vick-tims On The Schedule

With 10 games gone in the season, the Eagles have hold of a very respectable 7-3 record. So what’s in store for the rest of the year? Are we cruising towards a 13-3 NFC East domination or heading into the face of a 7-9 collapse? Here are my thoughts. Of the 10 games so far, […]

Just Another Game?

And so it’s almost here. Week 4. Donovan McNabb’s return to Philly. Will he get cheered? Will he get booed? If I’m honest, as long as he’s on the losing team I don’t really care although a good reception would be the classy thing to do. And then boo the living daylights out of him as […]

NFC East Prediction 2010

It’s a new era for our Philadelphia Eagles. Donovan McNabb has headed off to Washington and our fate now largely rests in the talented, yet unproven hands of Kevin Kolb. I’ve heard predictions for the 2010 season ranging from 6-10 all the way to Superbowl champs, so what does history suggest is in store over […]

Home Tweet Home

So it’s finally time for training camp and as I’m stuck over here in the UK, I can’t pop down to Bethlehem and interview any players – even if I did manage to scrape together some sort of press credentials! Luckily for me though, many of our Eagles have been Tweeting away throughout the week […]

The Best Roster In The League!

“I feel this year we have the best roster in the league” said Joe Banner on July 26th 2009. As we now know, that roster didn’t fulfill its potential to win a Super Bowl. It didn’t even come close. Does getting rid of ten players back up Banner’s previous assessment or blow it out of […]
