Freaky sunday

By | Sep 27, 2011

I don’t know why so many bizarre football games were played this past Sunday but things got really weird in the NFL during Week 3. Consider: the previously struggling, injury prone New York Giants upset the Philadelphia Eagles 14-13 and knocked out Michael Vick in the process with what’s apparently a bruised hand. The Minnesota…

If a lockout happens in the middle of an NFL season and no one cares, is it still a lockout?

By | Sep 24, 2011

This past week, the NBA announced that it’s postponing the start of training camp and cancelling every single preseason game scheduled between October 9 and October 15. As I pointed out in my last post, this probably doesn’t mean all that much to the average sports fan. It’s only when actual regular-season games start getting…

Not just any given Sunday

By | Sep 11, 2011

Today is opening day for the National Football League. More importantly, it’s also the 1oth anniversary of 9/11. Of those two things, I only feel comfortable talking about the less important of the two. But today is not a day to write about what’s more comfortable. Don’t get me wrong, I think one of the…

While we were away

By | Sep 6, 2011

Summer is one of those times of the year where it can seem like there isn’t an awful lot going on in sports, at least compared to other seasons. The NFL season is already long over and by Independence Day, so are the the NBA and NHL seasons. MLB is a couple months away from…

Point Blank: The NFC Stinks!

By | Oct 30, 2010

The two teams that share the best record in the NFC currently are the New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons. Neither of those squads would be playoff teams in the AFC. Period. It’s been a trend over the past decade and a half that the AFC has been the better conference in the NFL. Well,…

Thoughts On Much Anticipated McNabb Return

By | Oct 5, 2010

After a week long of speculation about how Donovan McNabb would be received by his former fan base, what actually happened was not a shock, even though the other way would’ve been more fitting. McNabb was cheered and given a standing ovation when his named was announced to the crowd. It was a classy gesture…

Too Boo or Not To Boo…That Is The Question

By | Oct 3, 2010

It seemed like yesterday during that April Saturday in 1999 when 30 die heart Eagles fans appropriately dubbed “The Dirty 30” booed Donovan McNabb on draft day. Twelve years later, that moment is still brought up in several conversations regarding the now Washington Redskins quarterback. It’s used to stereotype Philadelphia fans as distasteful and give…

For Thos Who Didn’t Know, Andy Reid is Really a Politician

By | Sep 24, 2010

Point blank fact – Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is a politician. He’s not  a football coach. He’s not a talent evaluator. He’s a back stabbing politician looking to have his own butt and job security. Following the Eagles 35-32 victory over the Detroit Lions last Sunday with then back-up quarterback Michael Vick leading…

Kevin Kolb Should Start When He Returns

By | Sep 19, 2010

It’s no secret Michael Vick was sensational when he entered the Eagles/Packers game in week one of the NFL. As a matter of fact, he was substantially better than his teammate Kevin Kolb. He was exciting, making plays down field, running for first downs and bringing the Eagles back from a large deficit against a…

A Fresh Start

By | Sep 12, 2010

There’s always that “buzz” in a new beginning, no matter what the circumstance is. The start of a new job has a buzz. The first time you go out with a particular girl or guy has a buzz. The opening to a new school year, for a select few at least, has a buzz. Well…
