Eagles Make It Two in a Row!

Eagles 31, Buccaneers 20, Sunday, October 13, 2013 Two in row! Winning streak! At .500! And I think I figured out the key to Eagles wins in 2013:  they just have to only play teams that have no wins yet. That shouldn't be *too* hard, right? There are a whole...three teams with no wins! And the Eagles get to play...one of them! Woo? Stud of the week: Did you know that the Eagles have a guy named Riley Cooper at wideout? I can understand if you didn't, because, as Jimmy Kempski points out, in weeks 1-5, Riley had 8 catches for 93 yards and 1 TD. Yesterday, he had 4 catches for 120 yards and a TD. Two of his catch and runs were for more than 40 yards. Where has that guy been … [Read more...]

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 … [Read more...]

Saints vs. Bucs: 2 and O-M-F-G!

Remember the good ole days when the New Orleans Saints would open up a 40 point can of whoop ass on some team and you could kick your feet up for the second half of a game? So umm, I won't be greedy and ask that we do that every week but if we could not have every game come down to the final freaking play in the final freaking second, that would be just super. Thanks! In the division match up between the Saints and the Bucs on Sunday, it seemed at times like neither team wanted to win. The Saints made it to the red zone enough times to make it a blowout. But the team settled for a field goal early on in the first quarter, missed a field goal, and got stood up on a 4th and goal at the … [Read more...]
