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.

Need To Know Betting Trends For The Eagles and Panthers

After seemingly getting back on track last Thursday night at MetLife Stadium, the Eagles will look to climb over the .500 mark when they host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. The Panthers, who are 1-4 all-time in regular season games played in Philadelphia, are looking for their first road victory of the season, and they will have their work cut out for them if they hope to get it.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Offering Up To $200 in Risk Free Bets This Weekend

When FanDuel Sportsbook first launched, we noted in our review that their initial deposit bonus – $100 – paled in comparison to what SugarHouse and BetStars were offering new players. We figured maybe they were resting on their brand recognition and felt they didn’t need to offer aggressive promotions to get new players to sign up. Whatever they’re doing is working, though, as evidenced by the fact that DraftKings and FanDuel are far and away

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.

 

This Team-Produced Eagles Documentary is Amazing

Kevin Kinkead - April 20, 2018

If you do one thing this weekend, carve out 45 minutes to watch this video, which is filled with exclusive locker room stuff that we hadn’t seen before.

It’s on Youtube:

Bud Light Gave Lane Johnson More Beer

Chris Jastrzembski - March 17, 2018

Lane Johnson loves beer. That’s obvious.

At the beginning of the season, he offered to buy the entire city beer for a Super Bowl parade if the Eagles won the big game (which they did). Bud Light later came in and said they would pick up the tab.

You know the rest. They won the Super Bowl, we had a parade, and free beer was given out.

Prior to the start of the new league year, Johnson agreed to restructure his contract to help the team’s salary cap situation. He’s still making the same amount of money, except his base salary for the season is now $790,000.

As a gift for his actions, Bud Light sent him more beer for helping his team out.

Where would Lane rank in the Bud Light royal family? He’s probably not the king (though he should be), but he’s definitely a knight.

I can’t wait for the eventual Bud Light Lane Johnson commercial to come out that has him saving the entire village from disaster.
