Starting Lineups: Set The DVR’s On Thursday To Relive The 1984 NFL Draft

This is a sorta kinda programming note. I’m not going to tell you to change the channel from the NBA or the NHL playoffs, because you know…playoffs. However, I am going to encourage you to set your DVR’s and make sure that it is set to the NFL Network for prime recording. No, I’m...

A Farewell To DeSean Jackson

My girlfriend broke up with me the day before my graduation. It was also the day before our one-year anniversary. This isn’t about her — she’s married with a child, and I couldn’t be happier for her. This is about what happened that weekend. I felt awful through the process of graduation and...

Chip Kelly, Jason Garrett And The ‘VP Of Common Sense’

Let me get this out of the way right from the start: There is not a head football coach at any level from high school on up — and most likely pee-wee football, if I’m being honest — alive who knows less about football than me or any other everyday football fan out there. Every single high...

On Life, Family And The Constant Love Of Your Team

My 8-year-old nephew went to his first Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday. Like me – and his two brothers – he was systematically brainwashed by a relative before he knew any better. At a certain age, he received Eagles merchandise for birthdays and Christmases. In 1995, a Randall Cunningham wrestling...

The 5 Reasons Why The Philadelphia Eagles Being In First Place Makes No Damn Sense

This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Philadelphia Eagles, the ushering in of a new regime, a new era and a new philosophy for the organization.

Two Dallas Cowboys Fans And Their Shared Hatred For The Philadelphia Eagles

Starting Lineups: Flyers-Penguins, Eagles-Cowboys And Some Thoughts On Rivalries

Donovan McNabb Appreciation Night And The (Official) End Of An Era

Last night, in a location that tends to make me scratch my head countless times, the Philadelphia Eagles showed me, once again, why they are appropriately called The City of Brotherly Love. See, when it comes to family, there are times when heads bump, philosophies collide and opinions vary. Your family...

Awkward At Best: Andy Reid’s Return To Philadelphia

I guess it takes 14 years, 130 wins, six NFC East titles and an NFC Championship to shape a legacy. For a franchise without a Super Bowl, Andy Reid came closest to a gold standard. Thursday night, he’ll return to Lincoln Financial Field. It’s a narrative all of us Eagles fans saw coming when schedules...

NFL Week 2 Winners And Losers: The Single Confetti In Buffalo Edition

In football at least, Buffalo is the place where dreams go to die. Some don’t even let their imaginations run too wild at this point. As with any team that’s suffered years, decades or even centuries of misery, there are arbitrary starting points for that pain, signature losses and heartbreaks...

Michael Vick Left An Imprint From The Start

I’ve been in many stadiums and traveled to various fields. My eyes have seen great players and even better plays. Overtimes, milestones and blowouts are nothing new. At the ripe old age of 26, I know that I’ll never see anything as magical as Sept. 4, 1999 – Michael Vick’s first game as Virginia...

By Jesse Taylor of Warriors World / @JesseTaylor74 I don’t really know where this article is going yet, but it’s something I need to just write out to get this Riley Cooper issue off my mind. It won’t be about the Warriors, though I’m sure I’ll find a way to weave them into this. As sports...

Merrill Reese Is A Better Rapper Than DeSean Jackson Without Even Rapping

Chip Kelly Is Different And No One Knows If That’s A Good Thing

When Andy Reid lost his job, it was clear things would be different for the Philadelphia Eagles. After 14 years of the same mind-boggling timeout decisions, change was afoot. At some point last season, amid the losing and joking, the die hard in me came to a conclusion. It was a final decision that...
