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 […]

Back To Eagles Football

Ah, the smell of burgers on the grill and the sight of leaves changing colors. The familiar chant of E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLESSSS rising out of the Linc is about to deafen opposing teams again. Yes, people. It is September once more, and football season is finally here. As we get prepared for another season filled with […]

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 […]

A Positive Spin

The following email came in to us yesterday by a listener.  It is too long to read on our show, but it is such a good read that we absolutely wanted to share it with our listeners and readers.  As Eric put it, “It is very thought-provoking and the positive spin on the situation is […]

Eagles Dream Team Lost

It’s Friday, and usually we are looking forward to watching the Eagles play in two days. Things have changed. Now it seems Philadelphia Eagles fans are looking at this game with much trepidation. Andy Reid, when pressed for answers in various press conferences and shows, reacts with impatience and with terse replies, if replying at […]

No More Dream Team Talk (Please)

Let’s start by throwing out the “Dream Team” tag. I never liked it to begin with.  Dream teams do not have major deficiencies in key positions. Sure the Eagles have three of the best Cornerbacks in the league, but also have Linebackers who cannot cover Tight Ends, or in the case of Casey Mathews on […]

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 […]

Watching the Eaglets Grow

After a long, tortuous off-season filled with owner lockouts and labor issues, football is officially back!  I know that training camps have been in full swing for almost two weeks now, but the first preseason game is what gets the juices flowing for me and what truly signifies the dawn of a new NFL season. […]

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 […]
