Your Monday Morning Roundup

I don’t like Led Zeppelin, never have. I know they’re considered one of the best groups of all-time, but I always felt their songs – including Stairway To Heaven – hovered in neutral for too many minutes before turning out one memorable refrain. The term boring comes to mind. I know I’m in the minority here, but it’s just how I feel.

That’s sort of what the Eagles-Steelers game reminded me of: a Led Zepplin song. It seemed to drag on forever, nothing too exciting happened, and while you recognize some of the positive takeaways, ultimately the game left you feeling disappointed. Even the Steelers game-winning field goal was as anticlimactic as it comes. 

We can blame Andy Reid – again – for allowing Vick to try to run into the end zone (that worked earlier this season), or for his fourth down decisions (which paid off). We can blame Vick, for fumbling, but he eventually gave the Eagles a chance to win. Or we can blame the defense for softening up when it mattered most. But that all comes with the territory and, in the end, the Eagles lost a sloppy road game to a perennial AFC powerhouse. It happens. 

Let’s hit it.


But first, a word from our sponsors:

– Drinker’s West features a $10 all-you-can-eat football tailgate menu every Sunday and Monday. Tacos, fried ravs, bbq pork and more coupled with NFL RedZone. There’s really no better place to watch the games. Details.

– Sports Vault is the exclusive provider of signed Brian Dawkins memorabilia. Check it all out here.

– The Brian Dawkins Weapon X t-shirt from Philly Phaithful is a hot seller right now. Shop for that and other great jams from Philly’s number one sports apparel company… hither.


The roundup:

– Michael Vick, who, at 8:42 a.m., just dropped another football, has no explanation for his fumbles.

– The highlight of the game was quite possibly Kurt Coleman throwing Antonio Brown’s shoe off the field:

– Tim McManus goes on a search for Eagles sacks.

– EDP, whose videos now feature ads, was surprisingly calm over the loss… but the offensive line and Andy Reid’s decision to try a QB draw with Vick didn’t quite escape his wrath. Have to wonder if the success is going to EDP’s head a bit. Motherfucker seems to be losing his edge. We’ll keep an eye on this next week:

Penn State received a top 25 vote.

– Mila Kunis was named sexiest woman alive.

– The folks at Busted Coverage put together the hottest MLB playoff WAGs… by position

– Finally, here’s video of the wedding brawl in Philly that led to a death this weekend:

  1. Can’t win with Vick Hahahahahhaha.
    DL is overrated Hahahahahhaha
    Ashamui sucks Hahahaha
    Andy Reid hates timeouts Hahahaha

  2. Your Zeppelin analogy was awful. If you think every Zeppelin song was like Stairway then I question your taste in music.

  3. Eagles games this season have been a lot like Star Trek movies: every other one’s a good one.

  4. Retard. It’s Led ZeppElin and I seriously doubt you even know what a refrain is.
    EDP is not funny or entertaining, glad you start to realize this A YEAR TOO LATE after e-sucking his dick for clicks.
    Andy Reid needs fatal ass cancer.

    “HE SUCKED DICK ALL GAME ….. BUUUUUUTTTTT he gave them a chance to win at the end”
    NO ASSHOLES – if he didnt suck all fuckin game it would’ve never came to that.

  6. Foles is a better QB. Remember how he actually would score us touchdowns with great throws. Then Reid may balance the offense too which make us better for two reasons… 1) We give the ball to the best RB in the game… 2) Because we give the ball to shady more that would open up the passing game and we would have a more accurate QB who can’t possibly turn it over at this rate. I give Vick one more week. If we’re 3-3 at the bye that’s same winning percentage of last years mess. You know the mess that has Andy ‘maybe’ on the hot seat. Talent over loyalty Andy. We need a good passing QB, not a good running QB. We already have the best runner behind him. You’re only taking rushes away from shady…

  7. I don’t like Crosing Broad, never have. I know it’s considered one of the gayest blogs of all-time, but I always felt their posts – including EDP recaps – hovered in I played a lot of Madden with my frat for too many paragraphs before turning out one original piece. The term boring comes to mind. I know I’m in the majority here, but it’s just how readers feel.

  8. “It happens”
    “Gave them a chance to win”
    No, Vick didn’t give them a chance to win. If you fumble into the endzone on a first and goal, you are doing the exact opposite of “giving them a chance to win”
    I don’t get it – McNabb gets smoked on this site and by a ton of fans for a few tough games – however Vick has been AWFUL for almost 2 years now, and it’s always someone elses fault? He is just a bad Quarterback, accept it.

  9. “I don’t like Led Zepplin”, typed the faggot in his Dave Matthews Band pajamas.

  10. “Foles is a better QB. Remember how he actually would score us touchdowns with great throws.”

  11. Kyle thinks he’s too hipster to like Led Zeppelin. “Oh man, mainstream society likes them, so I must consider them mediocre…”

  12. You were conceived to “Dazed and Confused” you little prick. Show some respect for the band that got your Father in my pants in the back seat of his Camaro (well that and Mad dog 20/20 mixed with what was likely Xanex). Yes you were conceived to “Dazed and confused” in a 1970 something Camaro rolling on Cragar SS rims you ungrateful shit. Now bring your mother some liquor!
    BTW Andy Reid is a fucktard.

  13. I agree with Kyle, Zeppelin sucks. All Zeppelin fans are trash and the same goes for Pink Floyd and their fans. WYSP is gone, listen to real music ass-wipes!

  14. Anyone who doesn’t like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, or the Beatles AKA the 3 greatest rock bands of all-time is a retard that know’s nothing of real music. That’s not an opinion, that’s a fact.

  15. Bands Kyle Does Like:
    Deathcab For Cutie, for when he’s sad
    Mumford & Sons, for when he’s hip
    Petshop Boys, for when he’s catching

  16. Zep and Floyd in your top 3 greatest rock bands of all time? You are stupid and insane. Please shut up.

  17. Regarding old school British rock bands, I’d put The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and The Who ahead of Led Zeppelin, but that’s just my opinion.
    Meanwhile, even though Mike Vick screwed the pooch with more turnovers yesterday, the defense needs to be raked over the coals because they sucked when it counted, unable to even come remotely close to stopping Pittsburgh on their game winning final drive. No pressure, no sacks, no turnovers, no nothing. Unacceptable! Juan Castillo needs to be called to task for yesterday’s failure.

  18. Yeah, Led Zeppelin’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll” takes a long time getting going. Same with “Immigrant Song.”

  19. Kyle added the E in the first Zepplin but forgot to fix the rest.
    What a dumb cumguzzler.

  20. I agree with Kyle, Zeppelin sucks. All Zeppelin fans are trash and the same goes for Pink Floyd and their fans. WYSP is gone, listen to real music ass-wipes!

    This might be the single dumbest, moronic, incredibly ignorant post I’ve ever read on any sports site ever. Whoever posted this, you would of been much better off swallowed as a blowjob by your birth-mother. It’s seriously unfortunate that you walk the Earth with other humans.

  21. this probably could have been posted without the super not funny LZ rip.
    EDP needs some hooked on phonics, special edition.

  22. By the way, if DRC actually left the Linc looking like THAT, then he’s ten times the fool I thought he was.

  23. Led Zeppelin stole the majority of their music from other bands, the same 4 songs are played on constant loop on radio and their b sides make me want to sleep. Black Sabbath destroys them.
