Boldin Feels Much Better, Will Play Sunday

Arizona receiver Anquan Boldin practiced Wednesday, and says he will play in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles.logocardinals

This doesn’t bode well for the Eagle secondary as they will already have their hands full trying to contain Larry Fitzgerald.   I expect to see Asante Samuel man up on Larry Fitzgerald and Sheldon Brown to take on Quan.  Look for B Dawk and the Q’s, Mikell and Demps, to be helping out all day on this explosive wide receiving corps.

As my buddy Matt said yesterday on the email chain, ‘I’m more excited for Sunday, then any Christmas as a kid.”

Sunday can’t come soon enough.

B West Resting up for G-Men

Birds running back Brian Westbrook did not practice Wednesday and might be limited for the rest of the week.  Westbrook is nursing a badly b-west1sprained right ankle and swollen left knee, said Wednesday that he probably won’t practice much this week.  Instead he will prepare for the Eagles’ divisional-round playoff game against NFC East rival, the New York Giants with an intensive regimen of weightlifting, stretching and running in a pool.

Westbrook said he will start against the Giants on Sunday, but only after taking a round of anti-inflammatory medication on Saturday night and Sunday morning to get the pain and swelling to a tolerable level.  Look for B West to torch the G-Men as he usually does.
GO BIRDS!

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.

preview

I will be in attendance in a lovely luxury box thanks to my wonderful girlfriend and her father as the Sixers look to move above .500 again this season.  Should be a great game between two of the best bigs in the East in Elton and Dwight.  Pretty excited to see Dwight in person as it will be my first time ever, not to mention Elton as I have yet to make it down to a game this season.  Hopefully this will be the first of many.

Enjoy the game, I know I sure will and everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the food, football and beers.  I will be back and ready to post come Monday morn barring an unforeseen sports happenings that I need to rant about.

LET’S GO EAGLES for fucks sake! Arizona Cardinals at the Birds, tomorrow at 8:15 pm on NFL Network.

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……

Ocho Cinco Credits McNabb for Attitude Change

Chad Ocho Cinco is crediting Donnie McNabb with helping him adjust his attitude during training camp. donnie-to-ocho-td

Ocho Cinco, who had spent the offseason criticizing Bengals management and proclaiming to the media that he would appreciate a trade out of Cincy, said McNabb helped convince him to put his teammates first and forget about his personal disappointments.

Ocho Cinco, calling McNabb a close friend, said McNabb reminded him that while he might feel miserable, millions of people would gladly trade places with him.

God I wish we coulda signed this guy.  Imagine Chad running flys and catching Donnie’s bombs.  Hey Chad, get back to complaining this off-season and come help us out in the NFC East.  We the fans WILL LOVE YOU and show you all the support you need.  PS, send me a jersey.
