Next Thursday will finally be the end of all of the Marcus Mariota to the Eagles speculation, so then we can move on to other topics. Or not. Also there are no other topics.

According to Jason La Canfora at CBS Sports, Mariota could be picked at number two by the Tennessee Titans, and still end up as an Eagle:

The Tennessee Titans will be open to exploring any deal that makes sense for them. The Eagles, Browns, Chargers and possibly Rams will all have at least some degree of interest, and there is ample potential for a swap to occur before the Titans make their selection …

It could just as well occur sometime after, whether it sometime later during the first round of the draft next Thursday, or even perhaps days or weeks after [Ed. note: Weeeeeeeks]. Surely, a few wrinkles could get a bit more tricky in the aftermath of the Titans using the pick, though even then a corresponding transaction would be hardly impossible.

As Bleeding Green Nation points out, the “picking a player first and then trading him” is more of an NBA-style move than NFL, “but if there was ever a time for an unconventional trade to be made, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Chip Kelly involved in it.” So basically it comes down to this: The Eagles could make the trade for the number two pick tomorrow. Or on draft night. Or they could trade for Mariota after he’s picked. Or weeks later. Or after his second season. Or never. This will never end.

Not these women


DESEAN JACKSON: HOME TEAM — Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is at the top of his game as one of the most talked about and watched players in the NFL today. That means eyes are always on him— waiting for him to score touchdowns and waiting for him to drop the ball off the field. Even though he has the money and the fame, DeSean’s life is actually run by a core group of women including his “momager” Gayle, his sister and assistant A’Dreea, his publicist Denise and his new girlfriend, Kayla. Produced by Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate Television. Eli Frankel, Ryan Holcomb, Elise Duran, Desean Jackson and Byron Jackson serve as executive producers. Jay Fragus and Lawrence Bell serve as co-executive producers.

The Eagles Become the Latest Local Team to Partner with a Daily Fantasy Site

The Eagles (and half the league) have announced a partnership with FanDuel. From the Philadelphia Business Journal:

The Eagles’ sponsorship agreement features branding for FanDuel at Lincoln Financial Field, including a “fantasy tower” in the northwest corner of the stadium and on the Pattison Avenue marquee. The tower will delver fantasy stats to fans during games. The sponsorship also includes the Eagles and FanDuel offering unique hospitality experiences for FanDuel participants, such as meeting the team’s first-round draft pick, watching the team run onto the field during a regular season home game and competing in a flag football game with 20 friends at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles were one of 14 NFL teams to sign a marketing deal with FanDuel Inc., the New York Business Journal reports. FanDuel now has agreements with 15 NFL teams, as it announced a multiyear deal with the New York Jets at the Super Bowl in February.

I’m just going to keep writing this, because I want my told-you-so to have high SEO value when it comes true: When online sports gambling gets legalized, it’ll be Draft Kings and FanDuel that step forward and raise their hands and say, “We have millions of credit cards on file and can handle this sort of thing securely.”

Oh hey and speaking of: PLAY IN DRAFT KINGS’ $60K MOONSHOT LEAGUE TONIGHT. I’m in. Only $3 to enter. Finished GREEN in my first contest of the season last week– $3… which means I’ve already earned more profit this season than the Phils.

The Tim Tebow Signing of Course Got Lampooned on Fallon

Or, waking up and realizing that Riley Cooper might be your best wide receiver.

Some Weirdo Sent Evan Mathis a Conspiracy-Laden Email about Tim Tebow

Warning: There’s a lot of salty language towards Jewish people written by a crazy person below.


Evan Mathis is a bit of a man of the people. He’s very active on twitter, opens himself up to fans, and apparently reads their crazy conspiracy emails. Mathis posted an email he received (asking Mathis to pass it on to Chip Kelly) that is insane and amazing and makes it worth signing Tebow based on this alone. All of that above is totally, one thousand percent, insane. For ease of reading purposes, here’s an excerpt of my favorite part:

“I was so impressed by Tebow and the Lord winning games together despite the obstacles in 2011 that I read the Bible and reclaimed my soul after decades of foolishness and decadence. The fascinating stuff in the Bible that no one ever told me about in my lifetime at religious schools was going to be the next conspiracy e-mail I was going to send you but I was afraid it might blow your mind during the season like it blew mine …

Tebow’s time with he Jets was to get him to NYC to get him to sell-out and join the Illuminati/New World Order. It was a chance to try to get Tebow hooked on drugs, drinking, gambling and/or sluts in NYC. It was also a time to try to get Tebow injured by playing him out of position at punt protector. {Imagine the Media firestorm if they tried with a gay or minority qb.)”

I was also impressed by Tebow and the Lord winning games together. It’s just too bad the Patriots are stronger than the Lord. But then again, maybe he began to become addicted to the gambling and/or sluts in Denver towards the end.


The Eagles are Apparently Looking to Repeat … Something?


This season, according to, the Eagles are trying to repeat. Repeat what? No one knows. Not making the post-season? Having a season derailed by injuries? Putting up a playoff-caliber record but not going anywhere? Putting together a fun but overall anti-climactic season? Yeah, let’s repeat that.

The Eagles are on the Road for Week Three Thanks to the Pope

There’s a lot going on in Philadelphia coming up. The Phillies play a bunch of games, the Democratic National Convention is coming, the Eagles schedule was just released, and the Pope is on his way. Some of those are more connected than others.

According to Peter King, the Eagles play the Jets in New York Jersey in Week 3 because of the Pope.

Phillies conflicts in Weeks 1 and 4, and a letter from Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput to commissioner Roger Goodell (the archbishop spelled it “Rodger”) last July 8 respectfully requested the NFL not play in Philadelphia on the Sunday of Week 3, the day Pope Francis is scheduled to hold a mass for an estimated 2 million people on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway outside the Philadelphia Art Museum. In October, Katz wrote the archbishop to say the Eagles would be out of town that weekend … 93 miles up the New Jersey Turnpike to play the Jets on that afternoon, Sept. 27.

“Yes,” [NFL senior vice president of broadcasting Howard] Katz said, finally able to relax Tuesday evening in his scheduling den. “The pope did influence the NFL schedule. My name may be Katz, but I wasn’t taking any chances.”

How much of a conflict is there really with the Phillies? Plus, Tim Tebow and the Pope can’t be in the same place at the same time. I’m sure that’s written somewhere.
