The Patriots Used Meek Mill in a Hype Video

Kevin Kinkead - February 1, 2019

I know that Meek Mill is close with Bob Kraft, and the pair are involved with a new criminal justice reform group, but what the hell is this? –

Pretty bad.

Rams by a million.

Super Bowl 53 “Who to Root For” Guide for Apathetic Eagles Fans

Kevin Kinkead - February 1, 2019

If you’re like me, you probably don’t give a shit about the Super Bowl. My interest level is maybe a 0.3 out of 10, because it’s the Patriots versus the Rams.

I know some people are cheering for the Patriots because they want the Eagles’ 2018 victory to stand out a little bit more. It’s the idea of, “well, the Eagles did what the Falcons, Seahawks, and Rams couldn’t do.” People believe that Super Bowl 52 means more if the Birds’ win isn’t diluted by other teams accomplishing the same feat.

Personally, I’d like to see the Pats get annihilated, because they’re disgusting cheaters. That’s the other way to approach this game from a neutral standpoint. And if the Rams win, Eagles fans can say their team beat the Super Bowl champions in their home stadium.

Here’s your brief Super Bowl 53 rooting guide.

The Bud Light Eagles Statue is Nick Foles and Doug Pederson Calling the “Philly Special”

Kevin Kinkead - September 4, 2018

Looks like the Bud Light statue outside of Lincoln Financial Field does indeed appear to be Doug Pederson and Nick Foles deciding on the “Philly Special” play call during Super Bowl 52.

We did a short post a few minutes ago featuring a picture of the statue with a cover draped over it, but here’s an image of the statue sans veil below:

Looks like Pederson holding a play sheet. The crane is moving crusher Doug into position on the pedestal next to Foles.

Pretty gnarly, yeah? I assume this will only be up for Thursday night before eventually being moved, but I say we replace the Rocky statue at the Art Museum with this masterpiece instead.

Kevin Kinkead - August 31, 2018

Hey, guess what?

We’ve arrived at the regular season.

The Eagles open with the Falcons at home next Thursday and the NFL Network is highlighting your Super Bowl champions with a pair of specials on the eve of the big game.

The second is called “America’s Game: 2017 Eagles” and will air immediately after the first one at 9 p.m, so if you were looking for the right time to sit on your ass and relive the Super Bowl season, this is your opportunity.

Here’s a blurb from the press release:

Jon Dorenbos Got His Super Bowl LII Ring

Chris Jastrzembski - June 21, 2018

Another former Eagle got a ring. This time, it was everybody’s favorite long snapper Jon Dorenbos.

No disrespect to Rick Lovato who did a hell of a job last season, but Dorenbos should have arguably been on this team. He was due about $1 million last year before being traded to the Saints. That’s when team doctors made a lifesaving discovery that he had an aortic aneurysm.

He never played football again, but remained close to the Eagles organization during their playoff run. He and his wife traveled to Minnesota with the Eagles and got a picture with the Lombardi Trophy after the win.

Owner Jeffrey Lurie promised Dorenbos he’d get a ring. He finally got his today. Video after the jump. Continue Reading

Brandon Graham Apparently Stripped Tom Brady on a Bum Hammy

Kevin Kinkead - June 7, 2018

Oh yeah, the Eagles practiced today.

Apparently Brandon Graham is even more of a beast than originally thought:

Not sure if you saw the play, but Graham’s strip sack of Tom Brady basically won the Super Bowl for the Eagles.

Here’s the play, just in case you didn’t see it:

Time’s yours.

FOX News Apologized

Kevin Kinkead - June 5, 2018

Kyle wrote this morning about the Fox News clip that misrepresented Eagles players as taking a knee during the national anthem when they were praying instead.

Fox apologized a few minutes ago:

 

There you have it.

Time’s yours.

The Birds Received Their Super Bowl Game Balls

Pretty rad:

Get that bad boy in a glass display case and put it front and center on the mantle.
