Why I Think The Eagles Win Today

Photo credit: Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports
[Verbal reasoning at 7:30 mark during my weekly pow-wow with BGN Radio’s John Barchard and James Seltzer on 97.5 The Fanatic this morning.]

The Patriots are banged up, without Gronk and Edelman (though Amendola is expected to play), and are coming off a short-ish week after a loss to the Broncos. The Eagles have had 10 days to prepare, it seems the Chip Kelly is leaving rumors have been squashed, and the matchup with Belichick is very much Kelly’s Super Bowl this year. You can bet this will be the best game plan Chip has to offer. And even the slugs in that locker room should be able to get up for a game against the Patriots in New England. Whether it’s for the team, or for their own futures, my guess is most of them show up to play today. And with the line moving in the Eagles’ direction (from +10 to +8…), I’m not the only one who thinks this game will be more hotly contested than it would appear on paper. After six consecutive weeks putting up 30 or more points, the Patriots’ supposedly dominant offense hasn’t cracked 30 in four straight weeks. Unlike the Bucs and Lions (no, really), the Patriots don’t have a dominant receiver to abuse the Eagles’ secondary. This is the start of Christmas Miracle Week in Philadelphia (Roy Halladay trade, Cliff Lee signing, DeSean Jaccson return, Snow Bowl). Eagles win, 24-21.

Please direct all post-game abuse to me on Twitter (@CrossingBroad) if the Eagles lose by 40.

  1. I work so hard. I have to get up early. I get very little sleep. Focus on me. Look only at me.

    1. Lollllllll.

      It really sucks; I actually thought Jillian was going to be the exception. The locally “famous” girl who didn’t need to resort to endless self-promotion and attention whoring. But no, she’s drug herself into the mire and I no longer can stand her. Her Instagram “inspiration quotes”, as you pointed out, are just the worst, along with the daily selfies and try-harding.

    2. My hat is off to you, Kyle. With 7 minutes left in this Patriots game, I never would have believed the Eagles would be up 3 touchdowns.
      The best part of the game when when that phaggot Brady pretends to fall rather than try to make a tackle on Jenkins after he intercepted that douchegbag.
      F@CK Brady.

  2. WHO WANTS EXTRA XMAS $$??????

    HEAVY HITTER NFL SUNDAY!
    FOUR 10 UNIT & FOUR 5 UNIT PLAYS!

    NFL ? 36-16, 27-13 & 18-9 runs in 10*s!
    $100 bettor is +$15,800 this season!

    1. Kyle can you do anything about this blatant spamming? It really blows when this identical comment is in every thread.

    1. Haha, you think Kelly is going to match wits with the evil Jedi “The Hoodie”? Nope, that’s why Kyle is wrong.

      1. HAHAHAHAHAA looks like he was right huh……….

        and you’re nowhere to be found HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA indeed.

  3. Now I’m going to write an article that is titled NONE OF THE FANS GIVE A SHIT WHAT THIS LIFELESS HEARTLESS PIECE OF SHIT TEAM DOES THE REST OF THIS YEAR

    1. I’m sure you weren’t watching when the eagles beat the pats tonight then…….

      thought so

  4. Thank you Mr. Scott for your recent shipment of The Man tshirts. Who is this person with strange birthmark on his face? No matter, my shirtless and hungry people are most grateful for the clothing donation.

    When can we expect your shipment of 500 orange long sleeve Legion of Doom sweaters? Our people could really use long sleeves as they forage for food and water.

    1. dear reigning prince of nigeria: when will kyle get his millions????

  5. Kyle is just elated that the porous Patriots offensive line, no Gronk, no Lewis, no Edelamn, no Hightower, and a barley recovered Amendola and Collins are storylines. If not, a 35 point beatdown would have been a possibility.

  6. Chip is a college coach. An NFL defensive coordinator told me that they have figured out his 5 plays.

    1. yet he’s making $40 mil and your sitting in your mom’s basement……..hmmmmm

  7. Look look look at MY team. that’s right…MY flyers are kicking ass in the NHL right now. So what if Fartsmell and Dumb Bob beat the fucking shit outta us last night. MY team is made up of WINNERS.

  8. Well, Kyle, you were right. The Eagles win.

    By the way, Paul Jolovitz Fan Club President is a flaming liberal and likes to suck c0ck!

  9. Don’t pat yourself on the back too hard. This is your typical pick a long shot, if you are wrong then all is forgotten by Tuesday, but if you are right you get to call yourself the next Jimmy The Greek. Picking a long shot once takes zero talent. Hit on a couple in a row and then you may be on to something.
