Look, there isn’t any one thing this team can fix other than wanting it more than the other team this week. Malcolm Jenkins talked about it this week, check out the video below. The football gods have given us yet another chance to get back into this damn thing. The Cowboys knocked off the Redskins on Thanksgiving putting us just a game back if we can win this week. It’s time to step up and take care of business.
Although this team isn’t playing like the team that won the Super Bowl last year they still have a chance. Amazingly there is still hope to get into the playoffs and make a run at a second title. The division is not that good and even if they lose this game they can still make a run. Doug Pederson promised us a new norm, now he needs to make good on that promise.
8 More games to go and the Eagles are loading up to make a run. This past week the Birds made a trade to acquire another offensive threat in Golden Tate. The Eagles look to have a second half season run starting with a division foe, the Dallas Cowboys.
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.
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.
It’s been a week since that terrible loss for the birds and I am still not over it. The birds had them beat and let them off the hook. The defense looked terrible and the secondary looked pedestrian at best. Hopefully, they have put that behind them and are looking at starting on a new foot this week.
Carson Wentz is back!!!!!!!!! The Birds get their number one QB back this week against the Colts. This is a perfect game for him to come back in as the Colts are not that good on the defensive side of the ball. The only downfall is that Carson has to make B and C level receivers look good. That will be difficult. Let’s get to the Breakdown:
Thursday may have been the hottest goddamn game I have ever been to. The parking lot was full the drinks were cool and the stadium was rocking. Game one of the 2018 season felt like a playoff game and had you on edge all night. In the end, the Eagles were able to pull out a win that looked a lot like last years victory over the Falcons with Matty Ice not being able to get Julio Jones the ball on the last play. So let’s see how we made out on the Pre-Game Write Up.
I will be away for business during this one but Beer Under the Big Top looks like a blast. This event is taking place 2 June 2018, with VIP starting at 12:30 and regulars common folk at 1:30. Who cares which ticket you get they have over a 150 Beers being served and a ton of other things going on. I am actually pissed that I can’t attend this one. DAMN WORK!!!! I need to hit the lottery and just be able to travel the world like I won’t to. I am sulking right now, deep breath in, stare at the ceiling, eyes back to the screen, sip of my coffee, ok I am back now.
What a great week. I attempted or am still attempting to brew my first batch of beer. The wife got the confirmation for her new job that she starts next week. St. Paddy’s day was yesterday so you know I got hammered. Oh and I got to see the Lombardi Trophy, and do some “Chalk Talk ” with Eagles new receivers Coach Gunter Brewer. It was cool to see my pop get to see the trophy. This week is going to be hard to top but I’ll give it shot. Man is it a good time to be alive.
