Screen Shot 2013-09-09 at 9.08.20 AM
Tonight, we have football. Reader Jared is ready, and so is everyone else.

Let’s hit it!


But first, a word from our sponsors:

Cheesesteaks. Check out Jersey’s newest steak joint, Just Steaks, in the Merchantville Shopping Center. Ask for “The Crossing Broad”: $7 for a steak, fries and a bottled drink.

Crushes. My two, Darin Ruf and Cody Asche, will be at the Sports Vault in the King of Prussia Mall from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 21.

Tailgate. Football season is here– time to get your K Lot All-Stars t-shirt from Philly Phaithful.

TicketsPhiladelphia Eagles tickets for the Chargers game start at $85.


The roundup:

Is a new era beginning tonight?

Bob Brookover says so:

A new era in Eagles football is set to launch, and after all the talk about Chip Kelly’s innovative, imaginative, supercool offense, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the new coach entered FedEx Field Monday night riding atop an actual rocket ship.

Ed Kracz says so:

The Eagles are one of those games, with the Chip Kelly era dawning outside of Washington, D.C., against the Redskins on Monday night (6:55/ESPN). The Houston Texans will play at the San Diego Chargers in the second game of this coast-to-coast doubleheader at 10:30.

John Smallwood says so:

The Chip Kelly era begins tonight and finally we get to see what it can do, instead of just speculating about it.

CSN Philly staff says so:

Eagles fans are excited about the start of the Chip Kelly era, but the national analysts aren’t quite as bullish.

Brad Wilson says so:

The Chip Kelly era in Philadelphia may have opened in January, but it really gets underway tonight in Washington when Kelly’s retooled Eagles take on theRedskins in both teams’ season opener.

Tim McManus says so:

That is one of the many questions in front of us as the Chip Kelly era begins. Answers will begin arriving in haste.

Bob Grotz says so:

The Chip Kelly Era begins tonight with the Eagles testing the defending NFC East champion Washington Redskins at newly sodded FedEx Field (7 o’clock, Channel 6, WYSP 94.1-FM).

Les Bowen says so:

I’VE HAD A fair number of people ask me if I agree that Michael Vick should be starting for the Eagles tonight, when the Chip Kelly era begins at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.

And you wonder why we do things… a little bit different around here.

The season has been such a long time coming that Eagles reporters have actually written themselves in circle. Chip Kelly is so unconventional and different! Chip Kelly is not different at all!says Paul Domowitch: [once again, this excerpt brought to you in one long, run-on paragraph because the code monkeys at still haven’t figured out how to format text– really, I’m surprised this paragraph isn’t encrypted]

THOMAS EDISON invented the light bulb. Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. Chip Kelly? Despite all of the attention his offense has been getting since he joined the NFL head-coaching fraternity 8 1/2 months ago, still not a damn thing. The whole up-tempo thing? Nah. Teams have been running no-huddle offenses for more than two decades. Spread formations? Old news. The read option? Been there done that. Inside and outside zone runs? Same thing. Bubble screens? Teams were running them when dinosaurs walked the earth.

I’m told that Lisa Hillary will be leaving the Flyers beat at CSN to become a rinkside reporter for the Ducks. So, as such, here’s the dress Hillary wore to the Mid-Atlantic Emmy’s, via her Twitter:

Marcus Hayes still doesn’t know how to use Twitter, probably still hates white people, too:

Ray Lewis made the perfect analyst for an Aaron Hernandez discussion on the Worldwide Leader.

Good Cole Hamels Q&A with Leslie Gudel. Cole loves talking to Leslie [part 1] [part 2]. 

Andy Reid finally figured out the red zone offense, winning 28-2… good thing he didn’t look like the Kool-Aid man or a Tomato:

  1. Well, Big Red did have the advantage of facing the Jaguars who, from what I saw yesterday, could challenge Oakland for the odious distinction of going 0-16 this season. And don’t go dissing Deadskins fans for getting an early start on the tailgate, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if Eagles fans are parked outside the Linc at 12:01 a.m. this coming Sunday. Oh, by the way, didn’t watch so much as ONE inning of Phillies baseball this weekend. And I’m proud of that too.

  2. Kylie almost made it through a morning without mentioning his man crush Marcus Hayes….almost.

    1. Oh yeah!! Just down the road from the Clip Joint! A number 1 on the sides and a great steak!

  3. I heard Hillary was losing it. She got done fucking all the flyers n phantoms and started drunk dialing Tocchet, Murray craven to fuck….. Waiting on approval
