Mike Missanelli Went in HARD on “Water Boy” Howard Eskin

Kevin Kinkead - October 21, 2019

Jesus.

All it takes is one bad loss to the Dallas Cowboys and the Delaware Valley is in utter chaos.

First we had Howard Eskin naming Alshon Jeffery as Josina Anderson’s source. Anderson COUNTERED, saying Eskin is full of baloney. Then we listened to Jeff McLane shade Eskin in the middle of Doug Pederson’s press conference.

Now Mike Missanelli is jumping into the fray with these comments made about Eskin during the second hour of today’s show:

Jeff McLane Asked Doug Pederson If Howard Eskin Leaks Information for the Eagles

Kevin Kinkead - October 21, 2019

Never a dull moment with the Philadelphia Eagles press corps.

So earlier today Howard Eskin went on Angelo Cataldi’s show and revealed that Alshon Jeffery is Josina Anderson’s mystery Eagles source. Anderson parried that claim by saying that Eskin “has zero knowledge” of whom her anonymous source is.

That took us into today’s Doug Pederson press conference, where the head ball coach was asked specifically about Eskin’s comments by the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane. Here’s the exchange:

Howard Eskin Says Alshon Jeffery is the Anonymous Eagles Source (updated)

Kevin Kinkead - October 21, 2019

Let’s get it back to the Eagles.

Howard Eskin, aka “The King,” went on Cataldi’s show this morning and was asked about the Josina Anderson anonymous source nonsense from last week (and last year).

Here’s part of their exchange:

Lane Johnson Suggests that Players Have Been Late to Meetings and Practices

Kevin Kinkead - October 21, 2019

Welp.

Here’s Lane Johnson last night after that pathetic loss, explaining where the Birds go from here. He alludes to the idea that players have been cutting corners and showing a lack of accountability during the week:

“Little stuff that slides during the week.”

Yeah, not good. Gotta snuff that out. Need Doug Pederson to put a foot up somebody’s ass.

Stinkadelphia – Ten Takeaways from Cowboys 37, Eagles 10

Kevin Kinkead - October 21, 2019

Apologies if you read anything in this column that doesn’t make sense. I woke up Sunday in Oklahoma, got dicked out of a flight by American Airlines, drove to Texas instead, and then got into Philly at 9:15 p.m after another flight delay. It was the worst traveling and customer service experience I’ve ever had.

But it wasn’t nearly as bad as last night’s Eagles performance. Good God was that hideous. Before I even got off the plane they had turned the ball over twice while the defense put up as much resistance as a wet paper bag en route to a 14-0 deficit. They looked unprepared and, even worse, uninterested.

It’s clear that Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman were trying to send a message with the Zach Brown release earlier this week. Doug’s “we’re gonna win” comments from Monday were also meant to light a fire under these players asses, yet they came out flat and played even worse than they did the week before. And this was against a division rival!

Outrageous.

Does it feel to you like this team never really embraced the “new norm” thing? They started 4-6 last year, when they were supposed to be defending their title, then couldn’t wait to fall back on the “underdogs” card when everybody started to point out that they were playing like dog poop. The running theory was that last year was a “hangover” year, just a down season following the Super Bowl. Carson Wentz was injured and blah blah. This year they were supposed to be healthy and focused and rejuvenated, right? Nah. It’s the same exact team as last year. It’s ‘meh.’ This team is ‘meh’ personified.

What’s worse is that each crappy performance just adds more fuel to the “they got hot in 2017” narrative/fire. Nick Foles came in, caught lightning in a bottle, and the home field advantage-plus-disrespect angle created the perfect storm of motivation to get the job done and finally win a title.

But when anything is expected of the Eagles, when the talent is there on paper, they crumble. They show zero heart and zero effort, unlike the resident soccer team, which dug deep on Sunday to complete a 4-3 comeback playoff win. It’s appalling to think that the Union would go balls out to win a game while the Eagles just half-assed their way through another malodorous loss.

This team is really depressing to watch. Smelly and fetid. Let’s dive in anyway. Whatever.

DeMarcus Lawrence Tells Doug Pederson To “shut his ass up”

Kyle Scott - October 18, 2019

OH YEAH COWBOYS WEEK! INJECT THAT BUDDY RYAN VIBE DIRECTLY INTO THE NEWS CIRCUIT.

As you may recall, last Sunday Doug Pederson potentially put his foot in his mouth by declaring that the Eagles were going to beat the Cowboys on Sunday.

The quote went mostly under-the-radar all week… until today, when Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence decided to shoot back at Crusher:

“Tell him to come on. We ready,” Lawrence said. “Can he play the game? So he might want to shut his ass up and stay on the sideline. He can’t play the game for them. The Eagles got to play them and he’s supposed to sit on the sideline and do whatever he wants to do. But he can’t play the game for them, so we’ll see.”

Dems fightin’ words from dem boys.

Looks like we have ourselves a rivalry game, folks.

Watch The Chiefs’ Super Bowl Odds Crater in Real Time

Kyle Scott - October 18, 2019

No sense in setting the table on what happened last night. The Chiefs, who had just lost two games in a row, saw Patrick Mahomes go down with a dislocated knee.

We thought it would be a good time to take a look at our new proprietary tool, which charts historical odds at legal sportsbooks, to see what happened to the Chiefs’ Super Bowl odds after the losses, Mahomes’ injury, and then following an Adam Schefter Tweet that a “best case” scenario would be only three weeks on the shelf:

Here’s what it looked like throughout the night as we learned more about Mahomes’ injury. Odds are courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook and in Greenwich Mean Time:

Schefter moved the odds -400 points with a single, speculatory Tweet.

If Mahomes comes back or the Emergency QB Rule existed, the Chiefs represent an excellent value right now. Or, Andy Reid is the coach and you shouldn’t bet on them anyway.

Presenting The Emergency QB Rule

Kyle Scott - October 18, 2019

Patrick Mahomes had his kneecap popped into back place live on national television as the Chiefs, a Super Bowl contender, saw their season flash before their eyes.

It’s hard to imagine a more significant injury, to a more significant body part, than the arguably the best quarterback in the game on a contending team having his knee knocked out of alignment.

For far too many teams, for far too many years, their seasons have hinged on the health and fate of a starting quarterback. Removing the 1990 Giants and the 2017 Eagles, who managed to win the Super Bowl with a capable backup, a significant injury to a starting quarterback has torpedoed many a team’s chances.

When this happens, millions of dollars for owners and cities are flushed down the drain, or more aptly, redistributed to another team that is able to capitalize on the misfortune and advance further than they should. The point is, injuries to NFL quarterbacks affect more than just the player– they impact the team, coach, owner, fan base, city, and the rest of the league. A lot is at stake, not the least of which is money. It’s that last one that might compel NFL owners and executives to take a long, hard look at what I’m going to call the Emergency QB Rule.

Emergency QB Rule

While I make no claim to be a European soccer expert, we are all aware of their loan system, where players unable to get playing time on their current squad are loaned out to another one so they can play, develop, and further advance their careers.

Imagine if we allowed the same in the NFL.

This season has already chewed up Drew Brees and Patrick Mahomes. Last year, it was Aaron Rodgers. And the year before, it was Carson Wentz.

What if their teams were able to grab another top flight quarterback off the shelf at the end of the season to give themselves a fighting chance to continue their trajectory?

My proposed Emergency QB Rule would be as follows: Continue Reading
