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.

The Eagles Super Bowl DVD Drops Today and it’s Going to be Good

BWanksCB - March 6, 2018

The NFL Films Super Bowl LII DVD drops today, and I think I know what roughly 85 percent of Eagles fans will be doing when they get home from work tonight. If history gives any indication of its quality, then it’s going to be awesome, because those guys always crush it on these projects. I had an opportunity to speak with NFL Films senior producer and Temple alum Todd Schmidt, whose fingerprints are all over the film. I asked him what he thought fans would enjoy most about it. Here’s what he had to say:

“I think that fans will enjoy the last 17 minutes–the Super Bowl. All year the Eagles were a team that schemed really well and executed even better. The Super Bowl just paid off in such a big way. You really see and hear what’s going on behind the scenes and then the final minutes just take you over the moon. It’s a great payoff. Make sure to watch through the final credits for an extra surprise.”

Oh. I like surprises.

On a personal note, I previously had the opportunity to work alongside Schmidt during my time at NFL Films. No bullshit–the guy is flat-out one of the best storytellers there is. The film will be sure to add a timeless mystique to the season the way that only NFL Films can.

You can purchase the film on iTunes for $12.99 or rent it for $4.99, which seems ill-advised. You can also buy it on Amazon here [that’s an affiliate link], where it’s also as low as $12.99 to buy. You’re going to want to watch it again, and you know it. Now is not the time to be cheap.

If you’re into actually owning the DVD or Blu-Ray, you can head over to the Eagles Pro Shop at Lincoln Financial Field to pick it up, or you can order it online here.

The Eagles’ Super Bowl Victory Made it on to Wheel of Fortune

Chris Jastrzembski - March 5, 2018

Did you know the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl last month?

Well, they did. And many of us haven’t stopped mentioning it since. Now, Wheel of Fortune wanted to remind everyone which NFL team still reigns supreme.

The celebrations have died down in the past couple of weeks, but there’s still a little part of me that gets giddy when I think about the Eagles winning the Super Bowl.

And by the way, the team’s Super Bowl Championship movie comes out tomorrow.
