Snow Bowl!

Shady2

Eagles 34, Lions 20, Sunday, December 8, 2013 Five game winning streak! Can I get an "amen"? Stud of the week: LeSean McCoy. Duh. The previously (I believe) #3 ranked run defense in the NFL, anchored by Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley held him in check for more than 30 minutes. Unfortunately for them, the game had another half, and Shady RAN WILD. 217 rushing yards. 2 TDs. Another set of 2013 Eagles game gear to Canton. It was unreal. (Oh, by the way, HUGE shoutout to the O-line, who opened up those holes with TOTAL DOMINATION.) The whole game was, of course, totally wacky. You literally COULD NOT see what was happening in the first half in near white-out conditions. Sloppy play … [Read more...]

2013 Week 14 Picks

The Eagles enter the final push of a three game stretch against the NFC North and then the Cowboys with a home game against the Lions. In the Eagles' favor: the weather. Sunday's supposed to be a mess, which is not going to favor a dome team. Also, Nick-folesian Dynamite. And Shady. And D-Jax. And Donnie Jones (don't under-estimate the value of field position on what's likely to be a sloppy day). And an improving defense. And snapping the homefield curse. Then again, the Lions have Ndamukong Suh. And a top-ranked run defense. And Reggie Bush. And Calvin Johnson. Who is too tall for the Eagles' secondary to cover effectively. Of course, the Lions are nothing if not inconsistent, … [Read more...]

Eagles Chick’s Week 3 NFL Picks

chiefs-eagles-football

Note to Eagles fans: the Chiefs are not the Redskins or the Chargers. In fact, although it's early on, their defense is looking outstanding and continued to do so last night. It pained me to watch what they did to my Eagles in Andy Reid's epic return, but I can't say I didn't see it coming. Thanks to Reid, the Chiefs are playing smart, disciplined football on either side of the ball (kind of like the Eagles used to do in Andy's early years in Philly). So yeah, the Chiefs won. Big woop. Nothing to see here. And now...the rest of the matchups: Texans at Ravens - Both of these teams are struggling more than I expected them to so far, but I give the edge to the Texans, who are at … [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

k cavallari

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...]
