What’s up Y’all

Been a long time coming since I’ve posted up on this here Philadelphia Sports blog.  But I’m back.  I’m working on moving the site to a new domain and philadelphia-eagles-logohosting a philadelphia sports forum as well.  Here’s hoping ehh.  Hope I can find the time.

Anyway, Eagles… They got the Saints this weekend and god I hope we can shut down Drew Brees.  I hope the Eagle Defense doesnt get too flustered in going from one of the worst quarterbacks in the league, Jake Delhomme, to arguably the best, Drew Brees.   I think we can slow down their running attack which means more passing, and hopefully Sheldon, Asante, Quintin and the Macho Man can handle that shit.

That then brings me to the next not-so-fun point.  Kevin Kolb is most likely getting the start…. Kevin Kolb fuckin’ sucks.  Ok maybe he doesnt suck that bad, but damn he needs to show me something this week.  Hey, no pressure Kevin, this may be the only chance you get for a long time with Michael Vick in town.  So play your heart out bud.

Speaking of Michael Vick, I cannot wait to see what he brings to this Eagles offense.  Really trying to get some tickets to that this upcoming week.

Prediction:    Saints 24   Eagles 17.  I don’t see McNabb playing, Kolb blows.  Brees goes deep for 3.  Westbrook scores.

Housh Wants to Wear Green

Free agent T.J. Houshmandzadeh sent a text message to ESPN 950 saying “If they want me I’d be an Eagle tomorrow.” philadelphia-eagles-logo

Houshmandzadeh seems to be still waiting it out to schedule any visits, but he’s the type to take less to play for a winner. He’s also made it clear that he’d love to play with Donovan McNabb. The interest may not be mutual.

McNabb’s Arizona Home Vandalized

A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed a report on Yahoo yesterday that “Go Cards” and similar messages were burned into the front lawn of Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb’s home in Chandler, Ariz., at some point last week.

The report said that McNabb’s wife, Roxie, and his three children were staying at the house, but the source said it was not clear if they were at the home at the time of the incident.

The website’s report said that McNabb took a photo of the damaged lawn and used it as a motivating factor for the NFC title game against the Cardinals.

According to the report, one of the culprits was identified after leaving a box at the scene with his mailing label attached.

Westbrook Secures Wild Card Win

After a long, tight, and tough game to watch from an fan’s standpoint Brian Westbrook finally broke one.

B West caught a screen pass out of the backfield and bursted through the Minny D for a devastating 71-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, securing the Eagles victory in the Metrodome Sunday night.

Philadelphia will play next Sunday in the Meadowlands against NFC East rival and defending champion New York Giants, where they won 20-14 on Dec. 7.  With the win, Arizona will now face Carolina in the other NFC semifinal Saturday.

McNabb’s Last Season with the Eagles

As Justin Timberlake and ‘NSYNC once said, ” BYE BYE BYE, BYE BYE!”

Donovan McNabb was pulled from a game for the first time in his career after two awful quarters of football in Sunday’s 36-7 loss at Baltimore. The Birds only trailed 10-7 at the time, but Big Red thought second-year backup Kevin Kolb gave the team a better chance to win a game it desperately needed to maintain its slim playoff hopes.  And at the time, I did too.  And right now, I still think it was the right move.  Donovan doesnt understand how awful he really is playing lately and has always been let off the leash easy because of his inseperable bond with his coach, Andy Reid.  Andy made the right call on Sunday after two quarters of gut wrenching, sickening and downright pathetic football to watch from a fan’s standpoint.

Unless Donnie comes out guns a blazing over the course of the rest of the season, I think he is gone and here’s why.

McNabb isn’t getting any younger or faster and turns 32 on Tuesday.  He is signed through 2013 and is scheduled to earn $9.2 million next year (with I think a bonus of about 900k – 1 mil).  Eagle Brass is exceptionally frugal with the checkbook as we all have seen over there years and in my mind there is no chance they will pay him that kinda coin to be a backup.  Even as a starting QB, I cant justify that Donovan’s performances have been worth anything near that number.  Not to mention the fact that he’s only 22-21-1 as a starter since leading Philadelphia to four straight NFC championship games from 2001-04.

With that, we bid you adieu Donovan.  This is a business first and foremost and right now YOU my friend are killing our bottom line.

What…..The…… _______________?

The end of an era?  The closing of a chapter in Eagles lore?  Add another one to the, what could’ve been?  Simply embarrassing? All of the above appear to be yes.  In what can only be describe as pathetic, the Eagles TIED the one win Bengals in a joke of an offensive performance, as Donovan McNabb missed on THIRTY OF FIFTY EIGHT PASSES yesterday.

And what is even more embarrassing then the 30 incompletions in one game, even more embarrassing then the fact that McNabb turned the ball over four times (and it easily should’ve been six), what is even more embarrassing then the fact that McNabb didn’t know the game was going to end in a tie at the end of overtime, is the fact that head coach Andy Reid called 58 pass plays, with arguably the best player in football as his RUNNING back, to which he only touched the ball seventeen times, fourteen of them on running plays.

Something needs to change.  Whatever the “philosophy” the Eagles are using is NOT working.  If everyone watching can see it EXCEPT the men in charge, something is wrong. “From watching film, other teams in the league have been successful against them,” said Bengal corner back Jonathan Joseph, “They may have a lot of yards or whatever, but teams have been successful getting them off the field. They have tendencies you can pick up on and you have a good idea of what’s going on….they run those 14-yard curl routes (over and over), they ran them like five times today.”

There is no more proof then that my friends that something needs to change.  The player callers, the game planner, the philosophy, something needs to change, because teams know what the Eagles are going to do before the play happens, how can you win when that happens?

Well, at least you can tie?

Times yours……
