Westbrook Misses Practice

B West sat out of practice for a second straight day Thursday because of a rib injury sustained early in the game against Washington on Sunday.  Westbrook broke two ribs but was able to return after an injection of painkillers.

GOOD.  Take all the time you need buddy.  We need you 110% going into Week 8 against Atlanta.  With a bye in Week 7, two weeks of rest is a must in my mind.  We play San Fran this week and I think we should be able to move the ball against a mediocre defense at best.  Mike Martz’s offense however will definitely be a test for our D as he and JT O’Sullivan have been slanging the ball pretty nicely on the left coast.

B West Just Rest

Eagles’ coach Andy Reid revealed Monday that superstar running back Brian Westbrook fractured two ribs in the opening quarter of the Eagles loss to the Redskins on Sunday as reported earlier by my cohort, the 215 Sportsguy.  His status for Sunday’s game in San Francisco is uncertain at the moment but dont worry, we expect his little bro Byron Westbrook to release his diagnosis on Wednesday.

If it were my call; Do NOT play him.  We all realize that the Birds have already dug themselves into a hole, but unless they feel they are already in panic mode there is no reason to trot him out there.  And like the Bears match up (which is actually making me rethink this whole train of thought, shit put him out there, we’re already tanking) if the Eagles cannot beat the 49ers WITHOUT Brian why was there all of this Super Bowl or bust talk coming out of Lehigh?

Westbrook Breaks Two Ribs in Loss to Skin’s

Well it appears Brian Westbrook’s return to the Eagles’ lineup may be very short-lived.

Big Red said in his press conference Monday that Westbrook, who was back in the lineup after sitting out last week against Chicago with an ankle injury, broke two ribs on the eighth play of the Eagles’ 23-17 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Westbrook went to the sidenline holding his chest after the play, but after a few stretches and some trainer assistance was back out on the field for the next series.  He managed to finish the game with 12 carries for 33 yards and six catches for 51 yards.

When Andy Reid was asked about Westbrook’s availability for next week against the 49ers, he was his usual “I’m not disclosing anything” – self:

We’ll see how it works out for him.

B West on B West

News out of Washington has surfaced in regards to how little brother Byron Westbrook feels about his brothers injury.  According to talks with his brother, Brian will be out a lot longer then your Philadelphia Eagles are leading on.

In an article from yesterday’s Washington Post, Byron stated, “I don’t think he’ll play.  The ankle injury is more serious than what the Eagles put out. You know how Andy Reid is about injuries and giving out information. Just watching him on the sidelines after he turned his ankle [against Pittsburgh two weeks ago], it didn’t look good.”

Thanks Byron, what have you just told us that the majority of us are not already thinking?  I have to think, we, as true-blooded Eagles fans, are fully aware of that happening considering he hasn’t practiced all week?

Just stick to pretending to be big bro in practice (Byron simulates BWest36 on the Skins practice squad leading up to games against Philadelphia) and don’t set up these headlines acting like your dishing out some inside scoop to get us even more worried about the most important Westbrook …  Brian.

McNabb and Westbrook Expect to Play Sunday

Big Red said this morning that quarterback Donovan McNabb (chest contusion), running back Brian Westbrook (ankle), tight end L.J. Smith (back), fullback Tony Hunt (concussion) and guard Shawn Andrews (back) would all miss practice this afternoon.

McNabb said was still sore but expected to play Sunday against the Chicago Bears. B West is also holding out hope that he’ll be recovered enough from the injury to his right ankle to play.

I’m optimistic about getting out there and being able to play.  I’ve been rehabbing pretty agressively, doing everything I can to be out there on the field Sunday night.

Brian Westbrook is Officially Day to Day

Andy Reid held a press conference Monday and updated the media as to the severity of Brian Westbrook’s injury, or lack thereof.  Westbrook left the Pittsburgh game after he stepped on his own teammate and landed awkwardly on his other ankle.  Although Westbrook limped off the field, it didn’t look too serious.

During the press conference, Big Red stated that there was no ligament or tendon damage.  Reid stated that Westbrook’s status is day-to-day.  The injury is being listed as a sprain and Westbrook hasn’t been ruled out for this Sunday night’s game against the Chicago Bears.

Personally, I think the Eagles play this one safe and plan for the Chicago Bears without Westbrook in the lineup and let him get back to 100%.  I think we can handle the Bears without him and this will give some key reserves the reps they desperately need.

My Thoughts on Eagles Cowboys Game

First of all, that could have possibly been the most entertaining professional football game I have ever seen.  The first half was incredible, back and forth, score for score, up and down the field, no holds barred, offensive showdown.  It was truly incredible.

Now I have Terrell Owens in my fantasy league and he single handedly won this weeks match for me, which I had already conceded in my mind, hoping for an Eagles victory and some stellar defense on TO.  But a 72 yard TD catch later and I had a fantasy win and my head in my hands.

Sean Considine – What on Earth are you doing out there?

Big Red – Why on Earth do you have Sean Considine in the game?  Why are you running a zone prevent in the first quarter?  Why are you not blitzing Tony Romo?

Anyway after that Brian Westbrook came back and showed Dallas what a real running back is.  B West shook everyone out there shoes and cruised down the field on a screen here, a draw there, and a little screen to the outside to score.  Oh and what the fuck is up with these NFL referees this year?  How many facemask penalties were missed last night?  I counted at least 3, possibly 4.  Basically the only way the Cowboys can tackle #36 is by illegally grabbing the shit out of his grill piece.

And then the Donovan McNabb fumble.  What the hell was that Donnie?  You faked out your own running back and then tried shoving it into his hands and ended up slamming it into his side as B West is already getting hit by the Dallas D.  Come on man, your smarter then that.  And why dont you throw the ball away when your outside of the pocket and about to get sacked.  Instead you take a 7 or 8 yard loss which eventually led to the following situation.

Andy Reid down 4, needs to score a touchdown, 4th and 12 and he throws the ole hook and ladder short of the first down hopping to catch the Dallas D sleeping.  Not quite Andy.  Piss poor play call at the end.  It makes me pretty nervous knowing that Andy Reid has to rely on trick plays to stay in a close game at the end.  Blows my mind.

All in all, a positive effort from the Eagles minus the a-fore-mentioned.  We proved we are top dawgs in the NFL alongside Dallas and our offense is back with a healthy Donovan and we look pretty damn unstoppable.  I cannot wait to see what happens when we get Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown back.  Oh and DeSean Jackson, your the man, but SCORE THE fucking TOUCHDOWN before you start to celebrate.  Jesus Christ man.

Eagles Cowboys Prediction

Written by Guest Writer, Chris Rak.

Final Score : Eagles  33   CowGirls  14

The Scoring Summary Please:

  • Demps 98 yard KO Return to start the game.  7-0 Eags out to an early lead.
  • Owens pours popcorn in his eyes after his only TD (cause I need him to score just one for me to win fantasy this week) and blinds himself with the butter out for the game, 7-7.
  • DeSean Jackson, 43 yard TD catch burning Pacman Jones.  14-7 Birds.
  • Then Jessica Simpson tries to distract the Eagles Defense by flashing her tatters on the big board, however she only distracts Romo who’s never ACTUALLY seen her naked.  Pacman instantly starts making it rain throwing hundred dollar bills in the air towards the big screen she’s on from the sidelines distracting TO who can’t believe Pacman is back to the same old shit.   Lito picks off the pass and heads towards the endzone.  While returning for a touchdown he picks up each and every one of those hundo’s Pacman is raining cause we all know he thinks hes underpaid.   21-7 Eagles.
  • Before the half Donnie runs for a 34 yard scramble and scores a touchdown.

HALFTIME: Eagles  28   CowGirls  7

  • Opening kick off of the second half Pacman tries to make up for first half blunders and returns the kickoff to the 10.
  • Next play Dawkins blitzes.  Picks up Romo completely off the ground throws him 7 yards back into the end zone safety.  30-7 Eagles.
  • Then, Lito showing he’s not joking about paying him, lets Felix Jones (also on my fantasy squad so if he or TO score I win, yes I don’t know how I have too many cowboys, trust me, I’ve tried trading them) run right past him without even budging, just staring at Joe Banner.  30-14.
  • 0:37 left in the game B West breaks a 44 yarder then just falls down at the 1 yard line (we’ve all seen it before), but this time Lito calls a timeout with 1 second left to spite the Birds.  Its ok, pad the stats, David Akers bangs the field goal.

GAME SET MATCH:  Eagles  33   CowGirls  14

Well Chris, now that would be awesome and quite possibly the single most entertaining football game of all time, but I see otherwise.  I still see a very entertaining game, minus all the hoopla and shenanigans.  I see Donovan McNabb being on point, a healthy Brian Westbrook making defenders miss, and a solid effort by our revamped Defensive unit, giving the Eagles a winner in a thriller, 31 – 24.

Are You Ready for some Football?

Bring BOLDIN Aboard!

In a Pacman Jones-like turn of events, Arizona Cardinals’ star wide receiver Anquan ‘the Phenomenon’ Boldin is reportedly seeking a trade from the team after contract negotiations have seemed to sour.

Boldin’s agent Drew Rosenhaus (yes, the infamous Drew Rosenhaus) had already asked for a new contract shortly after fellow wide out Larry Fitzgerald signed a four-year, $40 million deal last spring.  By the time training camp opened, however, Boldin still had no contract and blamed the Cardinal brass for not making good on promises of restructuring a contract extension he signed three years ago.

Under his current contract, Boldin is making $4 million a year, while Fitzgerald is making $10 million (BALLER).   Boldin was reportedly seeking a contract equal to or more than that of Fitzgerald’s.

Boldin and Rosenhaus have made it clear that he no longer wants a new contract.  He wants to leave the team.

Last time I checked we have a plethora of cornerbacks and Arizona could use a few good ones.  Here is our golden opportunity to package Lito and a pick for a TOP NOTCH WIDEOUT.  Boldin would be a FORCE to be reckoned with in our offense and with McNabb throwing bullets to him.  Donovan with Boldin and Kevin Curtis lined up wide.  B West behind him and Reggie Brown and LJ Smith in the slots.  I LIKE IT, A LOT!

BRING BOLDIN ABOARD!  THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL STARTS HERE.

From the Hills of Lehigh

Some headlines coming out of Eagles camp:

  • Westbrook: No Deal, no play? Reuben Frank, Intelligencer
  • On the same day Jim Johnson appointed Victor Abiamiri the starting left defensive end, the lineman injured his hand and will require surgery and could put his season in jeopardy.
