Eagles vs. Washington on Sunday.

RE: COVID, it’s gone from bad, to worse, to even worse, to holy cow who the hell is actually gonna be on the field for these guys?


21 players on the COVID list? That’s crazy. Then you add Taylor Heinicke, who is banged up, Chase Young (ACL), and Terry McLaurin (concussion protocol), and you’re looking at a totally ravaged team.

Wednesday morning, the Eagles were sitting as a -250 favorite with a -5.5 spread. That number moved to six later in the afternoon, and a quick check now shows the line moving all the way up to -9, with the Birds now -450 on the moneyline. The over/under is set at 43.5. That’s incredible movement, but not surprising.

Also, I’m not sure who coined the phrase “gaper delay,” but they used to say it hourly on KYW News Radio back in the day, so if you can remember who that was, holla and we’ll give them credit.
