Your Monday Morning Roundup

I'm Andy Reid's parting gift, ask me anything!

I’m Andy Reid’s parting gift, ask me anything!

The Eagles are 5-5 and tied for first place with a big home game against the Redskins looming next week. They end the season on the road, at Dallas, with a chance to control their own destiny in case the teams are tied going into the final week. Nick Foles has put together the best two-week QB rating ever, in the history of Forever and Always Taylor Swift, of all-time. He’s one week away from becoming the Eagles’ quarterback of the future. We’re not there yet, but getting close. He doesn’t make mistakes and has a good arm. Flash in the pans usually only have one or the other. Foles has both.

That’s your good news.

Now, the other news: The last four quarterbacks the Eagles have faced are Terrelle Pryor, Matt McGloin, Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien. Frighteningly enough, Tolzien may be the best of that bunch. The Raiders are a joke and the Packers were without their best player. The last time the Eagles played the Cowboys, they embarrassed themselves. They haven’t won at home in roughly 400 days.

Let’s hit it!

 

But first, a word from our sponsors:

Boykin. Meet Brandon Boykin and Mychal Kendricks at the Sports Vault in the King of Prussia Mall on Wednesday, November 20 from 7 – 8 p.m. Details and tickets here.

Great seats. I bought tickets at the last minute on Friday night for $63 for the Flyers-Oilers using Crossing Broad Tickets. I sat here:

T-shirts. Stock up for the holiday with great t-shirts from Philly Phaithful.

 

The roundup:

DeSean Jackson says fans can’t boo the Eagles next week:

“We gotta get it going. We gotta get back in the swing of things at home,” Jackson said Sunday. “Our fans deserve it, things like that. So, hopefully, we can collect something together, figure out what it is and just win in front of our home fans.

“But there’s gotta be support. We can’t be coming into the game, first quarter, getting boos and all that type of stuff. [The fans] just gotta work with us throughout the game.

“I think as long as everybody is doing their job and doing what they need to do, we’ll be all right.”

Cue the faux outrage!

I actually don’t have a problem with that. DeSean’s backed up his talk this year and had another good game yesterday. And he’s right– the Eagles, at 5-5, have at least earned one game from overreaction boos stemming from a three-and-out. If it’s 24-0? Sure, boo. But if it’s 7-7 in the second quarter and the Eagles are struggling on offense? Stick with it. WE ACTUALLY HAVE A FIRST PLACE TEAM IN PHILADELPHIA– don’t look at the gift horse’s gums sitch… just embrace it, ride it, at least for a week. YA HERR MEH?

Did Tom McCarthy shout about the Eagles yesterday? He did. He was the radio broadcaster for Westwood One, the radio network that everyone knows by name but has no idea what they actually do.

Jay Glazer’s interview with Richie Incognito. I couldn’t be any more over this story.

Jamie Moyer’s wife has launched a website for spouses in sports to gather and talk about how rich they are and if they should just put up with the cheating. [I am not implying Jamie Moyer cheats on his wife. I’m speaking generally.]

Bill Simmons calls former Flyer Tom Sestito, “Richie IncogSestito”:

Bryz on his way to Atlanta, presumably for some conditioning work before joining the Oilers and their awful goaltenders:

A bunch of people told me I ruined the Eagles’ season by posting that Riley Cooper video. And now, articles like this:

Out of nowhere, out of an incident that could have torn the Eagles apart before Chip Kelly had coached his first game, Cooper has emerged as perhaps the most pleasant surprise of their season: 28 receptions; seven touchdowns; a gaudy 19.8 yards per catch; and, most important, a group of teammates who were willing to accept him again.

“I’m so proud of him,” wide receiver Jason Avant said. “Only he and I know some of the conversations we’ve had or some of the things that transpired that could have had him down. But he’s definitely overcome a lot of things.”

Season status: not ruined.

John Cena pooped himself in the ring once.

Giants fans booed a dog. But we booed Santa Claus that one time 407 years ago.

A bartender stabbed patrons during a brawl in West Philly.

Manning face, sort of.

A lot of people traded in Andrew Bynum jerseys for a chance to boo him.

Kacie McDonnell and Aaron Murrary– who knew?

Voila_Capture507

Shocked at how genuinely sweet and nice all the comments are on Murray’s Instagram. Not one vulgar one. Meanwhile, if I post a headshot of someone even resembling a female, at least two commenters will offer her cunnilingus.

I love the military gear players and coaches wore yesterday, especially this baby:

You can get one here.

Finally, the story Chip Kelly told the team in the hotel on Saturday, as told by Najee Goode to Eagles 24/7:

A New York businessman who has fallen on hard times walks into Central Park and takes a seat on a bench next to an old man. Eventually he proceeds to tell the old man about his struggles.

After listening to his story, the old man gets out his check book and writes the businessman a check for $500,000.

“Take this, and kindly pay me back in one year,” said the old man. “Your business will be fine.”

On the check read the name: Warren Buffet.

The businessman put the check in a safe and went about building his business back up. It was a success and he never touched the money. After a year he went to return the check to the old man, who was accompanied by a nurse.

“I’m glad you didn’t try and cash that check,” the nurse said. “This old man is from a nursing home. He sometimes dresses up and pretends he is Warren Buffet but he is really not.”

Did Chip Kelly do something unconventional today? He did.

The logo: The overwhelming majority of you voted for a contest to design a new one. We might do that, but it will take some time (a few days) to plan and organize, if that’s what we wind up doing. For now, we stripped down the original logo to make it a bit simpler and cleaner. I think it looks much better.

    HALLELUJAH!! The classic CB logo is back! I’m relieved! Okay! Let’s hit it!

    Regarding Desean Jackson’s comments about fans booing the Eagles at home, he’s a fucking moron. Maybe if the team didn’t shit the bed on the Linc’s field and played like champs instead of chumps, then the fans wouldn’t have anything to boo about and would support them. The problem here is that today’s modern athlete has had his ass relentlessly kissed by family, friends and hangers on from day one and is much too used to praise ALL the time, whether it’s deserved or not, and when they don’t get that praise, they whine like spoiled children. Desean should know by now that he’s not in the Midwest where fans are always nice, or the west coast where fans mostly don’t care, he’s in Philadelphia, he plays in a northeast corridor city like New York or Boston where fans DO care and expect a lot from their teams, given the tremendous amounts of money they spend to watch them, and when teams play like shit, the fans will let you know, in spades. If the players think and worry too much about how the fans react to them, then THEY’RE fucking weak. End of story. Bottom line: the fans absolutely should NOT apologize for expressing themselves when they watch players fail to get the goddamn job done.

      Exactly. If the fans boo, they boo the performance, not the player necessarily.

      Your vaunted Chip Kelly offense got shut out, at home, by a last place team…are we supposed be happy about that? Or just say, “Aw shucks guys…poor baby’s…it’s ok, we’ll get em’ next time guys!” Fuck that noise. You’re a grown ass man making a fuckgillion dollars a year to play a game. Show up and do your job.

    I have to agree with Flash. De-jac should just be happy that his fans even give enough of a shit to boo after going 400 days without a home win. Weak sauce bro, weak sauce. Any time you mention fans, just talk about how great they are, that’s all you have to do. Stop the fucking baby ass whining dude. Are you a man or a fuckin’ punk who lets some boos bother you? Prove it Sally.

      DeSean needs to understand that the players aren’t being booed, their performance is. We know what they’re capable of. To see what this offense can do and has done and then to see them do absolutely nothing? If they don’t show up and look like dog shit, I’m booing them and that would happen in any stadium in the entire NFL. Sorry, not sorry.

      Yeah let me get up and cheer the three first downs they had by half time in that turd of a game.

    Outside of the first DeSean TD, Foles didn’t have a bad throw all day. That DeSean TD should’ve been picked off though. I do wonder if the wind had some effect on the throw though. There was some screwy winds in that stadium in the first half and both kickers missed FG’s.

    GB has a decent enough defense…and he carved him up. More importantly, Shady just ran all over them. They have to get him the ball 20+ times a week. I was sad to see them get inside the 10 and ignore him again, but those plays will come in time. We’ll see how they look this week at home, where this offense has been completely terrible all year.

    Phil Simms still thinks they’re a bottom 3 offense.

    “GB has a decent enough defense…and he carved him up.”

    Green Bay has the 20th ranked pass defense, their best corner left the game in the second quarter and their best player couldn’t do anything because of the giant club on his hand. Foles played well, but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

    the Philly fox morning show is smart…they put kacie on directly after that disgustingly fat beached whale sue serio, so the viewer’s get that fat pig sue and her fat face out of their minds. Kacie takes a lot of heat on this site, and I really don’t understand the hatred. I bang her (and finish) in a New York minute

    Not sure why there is so much hype around that Kacie chick. Her teeth are way too big and she looks like your typical South Philly harlet (short with a terrible fake tan). I would still rather bang that Alycia Lane if we are talking Philly newscasters.
