Doug Pederson made statements recently that the pressure was off. That they can get back to just doing what the Eagles do. I couldn’t disagree more. If the Eagles lose this week in London then they are in some serious trouble to not make it back to the playoffs. Doug Pederson has to find a way to right the ship and show that this is a talented team that will make championship runs now and into the future.
Since the 2010 Super Bowl where Aaron Rodgers became the most loved QB in all of football, the Packers have struggled to get back to the big dance. Yes, they have been close and yes each year Rodgers is healthy they have a shot but that’s just it, it’s a shot. The year following their Super Bowl they went 15-1 and lost in the playoffs. They have been up and down since and Aaron Rodgers has struggled to stay healthy. It shows how difficult it can be to get back. I am greedy and want to see more Championships while we can.
This week’s DOW comes from North Carolina. The boys from HI-Wire Brewing Company rock a circus theme for their brews. This week we are trying out their Lo-Pitch Juicy IPA and the Hi-Wire lager. Their Hi-Wire took first place at the NC Brewers cup for German Style Pilsner. I am super excited to give these guys a try. Onto the Facts: Cheers!!!!!
The Eagles blew a 17-0 lead to lose the game 24-21. Once again the defense gave up late touchdowns to the Panthers and the offense couldn’t find a way to get back into it. There were mistakes made on both sides of the football and if they don’t fix it soon the Eagles could be on the outside looking in this year.
That’s right the “Pummeling at the PAL” was such a “HIT”, see what I did there, that Frankie Paul has decided to return to the ring once again. His last battle left a bad taste in his mouth and he wants to show everyone that he can truly throw down. On December 1st your holiday wishes will come true once again at the Hockessin PAL Center.
Last week I said that last weeks game against the Giants was going to kick start the season. Well, they steamrolled those boys in blue. This week the Birds have to travel to North Carolina to face the Panthers who are coming off of a bad loss. One team is down and one team is up, who will take it this week?
These dudes have been killing beer for nearly 25 years. They have raked in awards and are one of the best brewpubs in the U.S. Sly Fox Brewing Company makes a wide array of brews ranging from Irish Style Stouts, American Lagers, to German Pilsners. There are far too many for me to try in one week, but I will give four of them hell this week. They have too many awards to list but I think the coolest thing is their 360-degree lid, MIND BLOWN! Onto the FACTS, Cheers!!!!!!
Well the Eagles got their first no doubt about it win this season by blowing out the Giants 34 – 13, my prediction by the way was 28-13. I was so close this week. Carson looked great tossing 278 yards and 3 TD’s. The running game was effective with 29 carries and 94 yards between Smallwood and Clement. The O-Line still struggled with Lane Johnson getting pushed around and Jason Peters getting owned. All in All this was the win we needed and now with a ten-day layoff the Birds can get healthy and really get this thing moving.
One thing is for sure the Eagles love to use the Giants to get the season rolling. Last year it was a 61 yard bomb field goal that got things going. Now that may have been week three and we are now in week 6, but there is no difference. We are coming off a bad loss, it’s a short week, and the Giants stink. The birds have to win this football game. Their is no option in the matter, the Eagles have to get a W against a division opponent before things get to out of hand.
What goes great with cheese, hell yeah your right, beer. From the great state of Wisconsin, we bring you Central Waters Brewing Company. These guys have been making beer for 20 years after becoming beasties in college. This week I am excited to be trying their Honey Blonde Ale and their HHG (Horseshoes and Hand Grenades) APA, which scored 90 Points with Beer Connoisseur. Onto the drinks:
