Let’s Improve Ourselves in 2019, Philadelphia

Coggin Toboggan - January 4, 2019

Ahhh it’s a New Year in Philadelphia. The sky is brighter. The people are friendlier. The puke stench from New Year’s Eve is finally dissipating from the 8th and Market PATCO stop, but the urine funk is still holding strong. It’s 2019. It’s a new year with new horizons and new opportunities to better ourselves and our city.

This is the year, Philadelphia. Can you feel it? This is the year we pull ourselves up from this stink hole and really make a difference. I’m not saying this city isn’t already great, or its denizens pitch perfect, but we can all stand to improve and better our lives for the benefit of us and the loved ones we hold so dear.

Even the best of us can improve. Take the venerable John Middleton, for instance. Maybe this year he can resolve to stop saying stupid shit before the opening of free agency that gets everyone’s hopes up for the signing of Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, while it becomes increasingly obvious that neither of them want to play here. Maybe don’t show your hand before the chips are pushed into the pot, John? And hell, maybe have the doors ready and open to Citizens Bank Park when your #1 target actually deems you worthy of a visit and not leave him and his pissed off wife outside in the cold to be accosted by South Philly electricians, right? What do I know, I’m just spit balling here.

Or hey, even Carson Wentz should have a resolution. He has room for improvement, right? Maybe in 2019 he can resolve to stop getting hurt and force us into this never ending quagmire of a discussion on whether he or Nick Foles is the future of the Eagles franchise. I’ve fucking had it. Carson, either get healthy and take this city by the balls or stay hurt and let Foles and his massive genitalia lead us to the promised land. Mother of God.

But it’s time to look at ourselves in this city, starting first at this site. What can we do better, as people and as fans? What are our resolutions for a better 2019 at Crossing Broad?

The Eagles Were Open-Hand Slapped in the Face

Coggin Toboggan - November 19, 2018

When it can be argued that Alex Smith had a less painful weekend than the Philadelphia Eagles, you know things didn’t go to well for the Birds on Sunday afternoon.

We all knew it had the potential to be bad, but this bad? A 48-7 massacre of the Super Bowl winners was the worst defeat in the history of the NFL for a defending champion.

The Eagles weren’t so much punched in the mouth yesterday as they were open-hand slapped across the face. A punch would have been more dignified. A punch would have left this team snoring on the ground with their eyes rolled up into the back of their head, oblivious to the horrors around them.

The Saints did not allow them such mercy. The Saints reared back and slapped the Eagles across the face as hard as they could. They weren’t allowed the dignity of being knocked out, they were left to whimper and sob softly to themselves as snot and tears drained from their orifices, a sad slick of failure smeared into their stinging cheeks as they pathetically looked up at the Saints looming over them.

Report: Nick Foles to Start Week 1

Chris Jastrzembski - September 1, 2018

Per Ian Rapoport:

It makes the most sense to be patient with your franchise quarterback. Why rush him and risk getting him injured again, perhaps even worse? He’s the future of the franchise.

He’s apparently very close to returning, which is a good sign.

What the “verge of starting” is I don’t know. But my gut thinks either Week 2 against Tampa Bay or Week 3 against Indianapolis.

Getting in Those Honeymoon Workouts

Kevin Kinkead - July 26, 2018

Ah yes, Eagles training camp began today. We didn’t forget about it.

I’ll write up some notes momentarily, but the most important thing to happen was someone (I think Martin Frank) asking Carson Wentz what kind of rehab he was able to do during his recent honeymoon:

“I got some workouts in… in the fitness center.”

Get your mind out of the gutter you disgusting people.

I also appreciated this guy scaling the fence on the far side of NovaCare:

Good for him.

Carson Wentz Is a Married Man

Kevin Kinkead - July 16, 2018

Eagles training camp begins in 10 days, so it’s important to get life’s minor details out the way.

Carson Wentz got married this weekend at the Lakehouse Inn in East Rockhill Township:

Carson Wentz Looks Pretty Good…

Kevin Kinkead - May 22, 2018

The Birds are practicing indoors today.

Biggest takeaway from the start of OTAs? It’s gotta be Carson Wentz, who is doing a lot of drills:

Nice.

Lemme get out the eye emoji:

More Carson:

Carson Wentz is Throwing Footballs

Kevin Kinkead - March 19, 2018

I don’t really “get” the no sleeves/hood combination, but that’s not important.

What’s important is that Carson Wentz is throwing a football again, and putting some weight on that surgically repaired left knee:

That’s from an Instagram story he posted this morning.

Looks good.

BUT – if he can’t go for the season opener, the Birds will just have to fall back on Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.

That’s the worst case scenario.

(Ginger) Jesus Saves the National Prayer Breakfast Dinner

Russ Joy - February 7, 2018

We know Carson Wentz is a guy who leans heavily on his faith, having founded the AO1 Foundation with the purpose of “[demonstrating] the love of God by providing opportunities and support for the less fortunate and those in need.” Now, he’ll take center stage at one of the marquee events where politics, business, and faith meet.
