About The Eagles, As I Was Saying…

vick sacked

Eagles 16, Chiefs 26, Thursday, September 19, 2013 Turnovers, to quote BGN, are not good. And boy howdy, was last night NOT good. Five, if I counted correctly. It was like, "We don't want the ball. No really, we insist - you take it. Please." all night long. Stud of the week: Jason Avant, Mr. Hands, who not only got in the end zone for the first time since 2011 and made at least one key tackle (that I recall) on yet another Vick pick, but accomplished a truly impressive circus catch, tipping an uncatchable ball back to himself and coming down with it. We had a week in which the D progressed (5 sacks, at least covering some of the receivers some of the time), while the  O and … [Read more...]

A Super Bowl Ticket Costs How Much???

super-bowl-tickets

As a reward to all you fans who faithfully support your team and spend your hard-earned money on season tickets and paraphernalia, the NFL has finally found a way to repay you for your loyalty, should your squad make it to the big game this season. They're hiking up the price of already ridiculously expensive Super Bowl tickets. Oh you reaaally shouldn't have! According to an article in the Wall St. Journal, the league is fed up with scalpers and third-party ticket websites making enormous profits off of Super Bowl ticket resales. So, instead of finding a way to stick it to the resellers, the league will instead stick it to the little guy. Here's the latest from the WSJ: According … [Read more...]

NFL Wives Club: Kristin Cavallari Debuts Fashion Line

We came to know her as "that beeyatch from Laguna Beach." Then, she evolved into "that beeyatch from The Hills." Following a few stints in bad movies and on bad TV shows, Kristin Cavallari has finally found a role we can get behind: designer of fabulous female football fan apparel. It's a venture that makes sense, given her innate fashion sense and the fact that she's literally married to the game. Cavallari is the wife of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. She recently unveiled her new line, in partnership with Junk Food Clothing, at New York Fashion Week. As for what inspired her to design female fan apparel, she says: "Football is a huge part of my life and fashion is a huge … [Read more...]

Evolution of the End Zone Dance

touchdown dance

Remember back in the day when football players could have fun after they scored a touchdown? I think they called it something like a "touchdown dance"? From T.O.'s pom-pom shake with a cheerleader to Joe Horn's "Can You Hear Me Now" moment, touchdown dances were often times the best part of the game. So leave it to Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake to pay tribute to this relic in football history with a little something they call: "The Evolution of End Zone Dancing". … [Read more...]

Wake Me Up Before You Go Go: Packers Come Up Short

Green Bay Packers v Kansas City Chiefs

While starters for both teams stayed on the sidelines, the 2nd and 3rd string teams were left to battle it out in this Preseason finale. With roster cuts due August 31st at 6:00pm, this was the chance for players in the balance to make one final impression and hopefully make the 53-man team. This is very important for the players, but for the fans (myself more specifically), nothing could be more uneventful. However, there were some points worthy of discussion… In the first play of the game, starting cornerback Tramon Williams intercepted a pass thrown by Chase Daniels. Williams was held out for the entire preseason due to a bruised bone. I am hoping that this play is a sign that he will … [Read more...]
