Well, THAT Sucked.

DeSean Jackson TD against the Vikings, 12/15/13

Eagles 30, Vikings 48, Sunday, December 15, 2013 Both Chef Spouse and I have managed to come down with horrible colds. Being sick during the holidays is an extra drag. Not only do you feel bad, but you miss things like holiday parties with your industry colleagues, your co-workers, longtime friends, and your fellow belly dancers. Boo! Loss of fun! You know what's even more of a drag? Watching your team get blown out by a 3 (now 4) - 9 - 1 team WHILE coughing up a lung. You know how I was all "no way this is a trap game"? Yeah, turns out I was wrong-wrong-wrong. Stud of the week: DJax. 10 catches for nearly 200 yards and a TD (which would have been two other than Nicky's bad … [Read more...]

2013 Week 15 Picks

First place with three to go. This week, the Eagles travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. Yeah, I know, Matt Cassel, Adrian Peterson, dome, those noisy Viking horn-thingies, trap game, blah blah blah. There's no way the Vikings win this game. Their scoring defense is second only to the Redskins...in suckitude.  While they'll put up some points themselves, no doubt, particularly if AP plays, I don't see them having any success shutting down the Eagles red-hot offense. In other words, if you have any Eagles offensive players on your fantasy team, play 'em. The Vikings are in the bottom 10 in rushing defense and the bottom three in passing defense. DJax and Riley Cooper are … [Read more...]

Malice in Minnesota: Packers vs. Vikings

aaronrodgers2

Growing up, my Grandmother always told me that if I was going to talk mess, that I had to be willing to stand behind what I said: good or bad. So at the conclusion of the 44-31 Packers victory, only one thing was on my mind…Greg Jennings must face Aaron Rodgers. So they talked...well it was more like Greg talked and Aaron listened. However, it gave me hope that a possible reconciliation was on the horizon. But holding hands and signing “Kumbaya” will in no way, shape, or form change the fact that Christian Ponder is Jennings’ new Quarterback…that is his sad reality. Luckily for Packers fans, Aaron Rodgers is our Quarterback…and boy, what a Quarterback he is! Rodgers is considered … [Read more...]

Packers vs. Browns: My Bittersweet Report

finleyap244557145449

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. The Bears lost against the Redskins and the Packers won against the Browns. The Packers have established a fairly balanced offense with 253 passing yards and 104 rushing yards. Top performers included rookie Running back Eddie Lacy (22 carries, 82 yards, 1 TD) and Wide Receiver Jarrett Boykin (8 receptions, 103 yards, 1 TD). The defense also did their part with multiple players making key stops. Linebacker AJ Hawk has definitely stepped up during the absence of Clay Matthews and racked up 12 tackles yesterday. Also, Linebacker Jamari Lattimore achieved a career high with 12 tackles, 9 solos and 1 sack against the Browns. Even with such great … [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...]
