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.

Is a new era beginning tonight?
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.
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.
The Chip Kelly era begins tonight and finally we get to see what it can do, instead of just speculating about it.
Eagles fans are excited about the start of the Chip Kelly era, but the national analysts aren’t quite as bullish.
That is one of the many questions in front of us as the Chip Kelly era begins. Answers will begin arriving in haste.
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).
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 Philly.com 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:
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:
