    Wow… Kelly turned out to be a bitch. Got butthurt on being shown his own words on Twitter and bitched up like a cupcake.

    • No Punt Intended

      That’s not even the only reason for being butthurt I’m sure.

  • mike5790

    I don’t understand why NBC wasted so much opportunity costs in advertising the Olympics and their own shows. They had all game to do interstitials instead of $5 mil lost every 30 second Olympic commercial, and some of those other show commercials seemed like 60 seconds. 15 seconds and out. The ads weren’t worth watching this year. They only ones memorable were the Tide ads. And why does the NFL waste money on nothing commercials that serve no purpose? I’m sure some business consultant, after taking NBCs money, told them it was a solid choice.

  • Steve Thomas

    Hey Scamp, here’s one thing to talk about – Alex Smith. Move along; new post: http://www.thehogsty.com/2018/02/05/lets-talk-about-alex-smith/

  • HTTRsince65

    saw some rugby on Saturday, no idea the rules, but those guys are insane. all that hitting, no pads..no sllding to avoid contact etc…

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Watch the Premiership League, best pro rugby, IMO.

  • Big Buck64

    Even the greatest QB in the history of the world needs a little defensive help. It’s either that or he can’t carry the team on his back .

    • mike5790

      Sincerely,

      Dan Marino

  • SCamp

    So what do we talk about for the next month?

    • MJ45

      Politics!

      • SCamp

        No thanks… how about Eli’s dancing

        • MJ45

          Sorry, sarcasim font wasn’t added.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Suspicions confirmed…

    • Josh RosenSquinns

      We’ll have plentt to talk about in the next week or so when the Skins tag Cousins.

      • walter_in_fallschurch

        cousins will not be “it”. why would we tag him?

        and, no tag-backs.

        • Josh RosenSquinns

          I think its all a rouse, but Sheft said it could happen!

    • alex35332

      Mock Drafts, Zach Brown, and who Alex Smiths Dreamy Eyes.

    • AustinSkin

      RGIII. Should we kick the tires and bring him back on the cheap?

  • SCamp

    So… did Philthy get what it deserved and burn down over night?

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Stone and steel buildings are resilient.

      • SCamp

        I see some carrying steel light poles down the street…

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Yeah, I saw that.

    • btg

      One of their fans ate horse feces on camera

      So there’s that

      • SCamp

        AHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

      • No Punt Intended

        SPAULDING !!!

      • walter_in_fallschurch

        no way, greg. no way…. i mean… even philly fan…

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Yes way, Garth, way

      • mike5790

        Mmmm…. this one is a bit peatey… but this one over here… this one got that hint of oak and alfalfa… top notch…
        back to you in the studio

    We are talking about sports riots, that’s wimpy stuff.
    Rioting over something political is very different, we do that better than anyone.

  • Kelly

    I’ll be back when you guys have finished getting your feelings about Philadelphia out of your system. Later.

    • No Punt Intended

      Lighten up Francis.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      My bad. We’re just jealous.

    • btg

      Let them burn it to the ground

      Hopefully in the process some of them are caught up in the flames

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        I’d be flipping out if my kids were out there.

    • No Punt Intended

      BULLSHIT!

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Horseshit!

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Though they say it’s a gateway drug, he’ll most likely move on to bullshit.

  • No Punt Intended

    James Harrison has nothing left. He had a couple bull-rush-pressures but aside from that, he should not be on an NFL field anymore because he is now a weak link, a liability and inevitability, a target.

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      And he played almost every snap. Says more about the Pats than Harrison

      • No Punt Intended

        Agreed. They had no one better to put at that position apparently. JH ended up on the ground half the time it seemed.

  • Back to the good ol daysBruce

    Sooo are the Lions having buyers remorse? Yikes

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Pats needed Hightower and D Rivers

      • Back to the good ol daysBruce

        Dudes were uncovered on the outside at the LOS. Was more than a Hightower or Butler absence

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          I’m thinking they struggled to read the play, all night. Pederson got some nasty shit going on.

      • Different_Cat

        I respect BB’s track record, letting expensive player’s go before their second contracts, but I think he messed up when he didn’t re-sign Chandler Jones.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Or replace him with the younger/cheaper version, which is the only way his strategy works.

      • Back to the good ol daysBruce

        And they play AR twice a year. And Keenum. Definitely not the AFC East

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          That’s true

    • mike5790

      I don’t think he’ll be a good head coach, but that’s based on some snap judgement and not obviously a deep dive

  • btg

    I can count to potato- BCooks

    • Kelly

      That kid got his world rocked

    • No Punt Intended
    • walter_in_fallschurch

      shockingly, that play was not a penalty.

      • Back to the good ol daysBruce

        Runner

        • walter_in_fallschurch

          helmet to helmet.

          • Back to the good ol daysBruce

            Not when you’re a runner. Look it up

          • walter_in_fallschurch

            hhhmmmm…. i see what you’re saying. seems like a helmet to helmet hit like that is just as dangerous as any other helmet to helmet hit. that’s a weird loophole, imo.

          • Back to the good ol daysBruce

            This is why WRs fall down purposefully in the open field at times. Unsure what’s coming so it’s self protection. We think it’s them being biatches but Cooks proved otherwise

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        He ran around in a circle first…

      • No Punt Intended

        Why should it be a penalty WIF? Because he got crushed? It was his own fault. On an NFL field, if you lose your bearings or don’t know exactly where the fuck you are, that’s what happens.

        It was a clean shot and the Cooks got himself hurt.

  • No Punt Intended

    If the Pats went down the field and tied the game and went to OT, there would have been a great chance Brady would have thrown for 600 yards.

    • mike5790

      Unless the Eagles scored a TD (were they to win the toss)

      • No Punt Intended

        Yeah, big “if” but I would have never thought I’d see the day when a dude lights up the best D in the lig, in the SB, for 600.

  • walter_in_fallschurch

    would you rather be the patriots* or the eagles heading into next season?

    • No Punt Intended

      Rather be SB champs…so…yeah.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Lol

    • mike5790

      the Patriots are losing their OC and DC and don’t have the lines the Eagles do. The Eagles also have the ability to put a SB MVP on the trade block and get potentially even better through the draft.

    • alex35332

      I’d like to be the king of England.

          • No Punt Intended

            Philly Philly!

  • walter_in_fallschurch

    i’ll just go ahead and put it out there that when the redskins win their next super bowl (what…? stop laughing!) dc won’t riot.

    (well… maybe just the fans who are maryland fans and skins fans…)

    • alex35332

      DC isn’t a rioting type city.
      We are all about pretending to have class and dignity.
      What we will do is go and intercourse our mistresses like crazy.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        We’ll march on that bridge again – Southeast

      • Kelly

        You must be too young to remember Mt. Pleasant/Adams Morgan. That shit was crazy.

  • mike5790

    At times Tom Brady looked awful. Poor ball placement, and inaccurate. Not giving his WRs much run after catch.
    And dude still threw for 500+ yards.
    Did not take as much of a beating as I thought he would.

    But I did foresee the end. That game felt like the Eagles-Rams game where you thought the Rams were going to finish them on the final drive, instead the Eagles D finished them.

    But the Pats totally goobered that final drive. Wasted too much time and effort on that first first down. Should have taken several 10 yard completions rather than 3 wasted long shot tries. And that reverse. I mean, I love Burkhead, but he doesn’t have the NFL speed to take that very far even if he had broke it. Risk not worth reward.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      I think that hit he took to the chest rocked his ass.

    • Different_Cat

      Not for nuthin’, but Brady finished with 505 yds. passing (a SB, if not post-season record), 3 TDs, and 0 INTs, for a QB rating of 115.4.

      • Kelly

        And 1 loss

        • Different_Cat

          I’d have to put that on the defense’s total inability to stop anything more than TB … much as I’d like to blame Brady.

      • mike5790

        I’m just saying we often nit pick our QBs when we watch them play, and Brady through some really average passes during long stretches of the game. And some of his WRs were inexplicably wide open, and Gronk is always open. Not saying he had a terrible game, but we should remember these things when we critique our QBs.

        And maybe I’ve done as such with Sam Darnold?

  • Back to the good ol daysBruce

    Guy walking around in an eagles jersey at a place with at least 1600 pats fans. This is kind of great…

  • No Punt Intended

    Philly is even more trashed this morning than it normally is. Knocked down traffic lights, a looted MACY’s and other local small businesses (way to go geniuses) and generally trashing their own town.

    What a bunch of morons.

    • mike5790

      I was expecting more. Like Watts riots more.

      • No Punt Intended

        They had to get home and beat the ever loving hell out of their wives/girlfriends.

      • Kelly

        Philly is celebrating the same way everyone else does when they win their first. The trend toward rioting/looting was happening before Philly, it will happen after Philly. This isn’t a Philly thing.

        • No Punt Intended

          Oh sure it is. This shit didn’t happen in Boston or Seattle or even Baltimore of all places and Baltimore is just barely less dumpy than Philly and they didn’t trash their town.

          It’s college bullshit is what it is. It’s a sign of someone that has no clue what it’s like to “be there”.

          • Kelly

            Yeah, history says its all Philly…

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sports_riot

          • No Punt Intended

            Who said it’s all Philly? You did.

            I said it’s “so Philly” and I am 1000% correct and you are not.

          • Kelly

            Lord almighty, I can’t even with you today.

        • HTTRsince65

          it is deranged Criminal Activity. And I think those people need to be Arrested plenty of cameras to track them down.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Hey Greg, you see any barbarians running around up there yet?

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      apparently some wildlings made it past the wall:

      “In New England territory, six people were arrested and a number of injuries were reported as approximately 2,000 people congregated at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst after the game. According to the University, medical calls included head injuries, lacerations and alcohol intoxication.

      UMass Police reported that fights broke out shortly after the game ended, and the crowd threw objects and set off smoke bombs and firecrackers. Police issued multiple dispersal orders before using pepper spray to clear the disturbance.

      UMass Police are proceeding with criminal charges and the university will also initiate a conduct review.”

  • Coach JS

    This has probably been discussed, but thoughts on tagging Cousins?

    • Kelly

      Don’t.

    • Lbsand

      Very, very risky. I’d prefer to move on down the road and not look back.

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      TP has his opinion…woops he dropped another one
      https://twitter.com/terrellepryor/status/960217559743303682

    • mike5790

      tagging Cousins allows him to freely (with permission) go seek offers from teams right now, win for him
      it allows prob some small compensation for the Redskins

      Cousins is going to get more than 34 million cash, so that isn’t as much of a factor. Stafford got 51 million last year, maybe Kirk doesn’t get that much, but a 15 or so mil salary with a 25 mil signing bonus isn’t out of the question once they flip that FT into a LTD. This is not that dis-similar to what the Chiefs did for Smith.

      • Different_Cat

        The Kirk is not impatient.

        • mike5790

          Yes, but LIKE the Skins, getting this “done” before FA helps his future team in their off-season. How much is that worth? 2nd round pick swap and a conditional 2019 pick? not much, but compared to the potential of nothing? my point was, it could be something both teams would want to do. a little for me, certainty and timing for you. and businesses value that. and Kirk still gets his free agency, in a way.

  • btg

    No I didn’t hear about the thing with Malcolm Butler?
    What happened?

    Relishing in their misery

    • Different_Cat

      He only played on special teams. BB won’t say why, other than “football reasons.”

      • walter_in_fallschurch

        “football reasons” or he was sick all week, or who knows?

      • Back to the good ol daysBruce

        Probably some dumb ass punitive reason. BB can be beyond stubborn at times but he has power to do whatever he wants

  • AustinSkin

    US and European banks banning the purchase of Bitcoin with credit cards. Good. Buying any investment on credit cards isn’t really a bright move.

    Bitcoin tanking. Sub 8,000

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      I was sitting adjacent to a friend m at a bar a few days ago while she was on her phone trying to buy crypto currency. And in 5 min after transaction her bank rejected attempted transfer of money. She was miffed.

      • Different_Cat

        As a friend you shoulda slapped her off her stool.

          There goes another lawsuit.
          Leave handprints all across you.

  • Back to the good ol daysBruce

    I’ve never heard it so quiet in pats nation after a Sunday like that. These guys are just bummed. I’m thinking to myself you’ve had 17 dynamic years and multiple championships. Shut it…

    • btg

      They are starting to turn on each other
      Love it

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Throw a stick on the fire whenever no one’s looking.

    • Different_Cat

      They had a historic run, but the writing’s on the wall. Might be able to cobble together a couple more campaigns, but I think that will be it.

      • Back to the good ol daysBruce

        I’m never counting out a BB lead team. But they’ve had a helluva run

        • AustinSkin

          One of the keys to BB’s success is that he has been an OC, DC and ST coordinator at different points in his career, so he intimately understands the importance of each role.

          • mike5790

            and what a good coach looks like in each role

  • walter_in_fallschurch

    did foles just play out of his mind, or is that who he is? he did have that magical season under chip kelly, but nothing much else until the last few games.

    • Different_Cat

      Seems like he’s a guy who can run just one system (RPO heavy), but he can run the shit out of it.

      • Back to the good ol daysBruce

        Bullshit. Dude ran several WC pays. They mixed it up well. was a helluva TX H.S. athlete in his day…

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          I call it the “Pederson WC RPO shithammer deluxe”

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Your DLine won’t know which way to go, your linebackers will get gassed, your DBs will lose a step…… it’ll shithammer you.

        • Different_Cat

          He’s got a pretty good track record by now. When he’s in an offense that runs a fair amount of spread concepts he’s been deadly. When he isn’t he’s been average.

  • Lbsand

    2018: Foles is under contract for $7.6M/$5.4 dead after playing this year for $1.6. Very attractive contract for a starter, exorbitant for a back-up. Especially for a team that has quite a few tough decisions coming up. The big question is: when will Wentz be ready? Roseman might just have to keep Foles, unless you buy that Suds could hold down the fort.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Probably can’t make that work, and if you can get a good pick….why not, to replace another big contract?

    • kon, for now

      The thing is is….if they don’t trade, his contract turns void in its third year. Which is a year from now.

      • Lbsand

        Yup, basically on a 1 year contract now.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    The three Eagles fans at work, that’s right, three, are more cerebral right now, tearful, even. They must not be from Philly.

    • WHY3

      They can’t be. A true philly eagles fan would still be at home having the dry heaves this morning.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        They’re gracious in victory, for now anyway.

        • WHY3

          Their team deserved to win. They were the better team last night and overall, the best team in the regular season.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Agreed

          • kon, for now

            They were the more fortunate team. Not prepared to say they were better.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            That’s your own issue.

          • kon, for now

            I don’t need anyone telling me about my issues. My therapist gave me the list already.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Second on the list, take that pill 🙂

          • kon, for now

            Oh oh right. Thanks for the reminder.

      • Different_Cat

        Be in the parking lot burning their own cars.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Or yours, a pink VW screams “Vandalize Me!!!” 🙂

          • Different_Cat

            Sorry, it screams, “FAAAABULOUS!”

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Lol, that too

    • Josh RosenSquinns

      Fire them and bring them back down to earth.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Meh…I just hope Snyder was paying attention to the Chip/Roseman thing.

    • Kelly

      It turns out, contrary to The Hog Sty’s opinion, that Eagles fans are just people.

  • kon, for now

    Trading the guy who just won you the Super Bowl, in a town that sets fires….would be a disaster.

    • Josh RosenSquinns

      Or would it?

    • Flounder

      They have a better QB.

    • HTTRQGC

      Don’t see it happening. Wentz wont play til October

  • btg

    When things go south for the Pat’s such as what is happening now it’s simply joyous
    Gronk might retire
    Butler is furious
    Locker room is divided

    Ankle pants for me

    • WHY3

      I’d trade that for the smack all those ignorant Eagles fans will be talking for the next year.

      • kon, for now

        There will be no tolerating them now

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      I saw Gronk last night, he looked defeated.

      • btg

        That concussion scared him

        Might be a play for more money

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          His interview was telling. You know this all ends with Bill and Brady. Remember the old Pats, lol

          • walter_in_fallschurch

            the old pats* were much more lovable.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            And sucky

  • Josh RosenSquinns

    Why the hell did the Pats not play Malcolm Butler , especially after their D was getting torched?

    • Flounder

      Not sure we will ever know the real reason.

  • kon, for now

    $9.2 million

    That’s the number OvertheCap has the eagles over their salary cap going into next season.

    And, no picks in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      And a Ring, not thinking they give a fuck right now.

    • Flounder

      Yeah they sold out to win the SB but they will have so harsh years coming up.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        Bullshit; they’ll figure it out. Not too many holes on their team right now.

        • WHY3

          Good teams always figure it out. Remember when Dallas was in “cap hell?” They seemed to do OK.

        • kon, for now

          The holes will happen when they have to make cuts to get under the cap. And, can’t retain their best FAs.

    • HTTRQGC

      Maybe we go the Philly route…get the young QB and build out from there. SB trumps cap

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        Nah.

        -Alex Smith

        • HTTRQGC

          Lol. Alex may not be here…

  • Josh RosenSquinns

    While the Skins are happy with a slow and steady 20 year re-build, Eagles go from the dumps to winning the SB in basically two years.

    • Flounder

      I don’t think anyone is happy.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        I’m just tired of hearing we’re in a re-build. We’ve been in a “re-build” the whole time Shanny was here and we’ve been in a re-build the whole time Gruden has been coach, and quite frankly, the roster ain’t all that right now.

        • HTTRQGC

          Yep. Been that for years…rebuild…what an excuse

      • WHY3

        I wish Snyder would get angry and have an honest look at the team and FO. But I think he’s too cozy with Bruce and Bruce is too cozy with Jay.

        • walter_in_fallschurch

          the value of the team has quadrupled since he bought it. he gets to hang out with matthew mcohnehay (sp?) and dexter manley and stuff. snyder is likely pleased with how it’s going.

    • WHY3

      And really, they’ve been a contender since Andy Reid was coaching there.

    • HTTRQGC

      Eating dust is the norm anymore.

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      slow and steady wins the race! you know – if it’s not really a race and stuff.

  • Lbsand

    Foles has played great, at least since Peterson and staff poured over his game film his 1st time at Philly when he was successful and customized the play calling to what he does best. What a novel idea. Great coaching matters.

    • Flounder

      Which is why if your going to trade for him you better have or design an offense that fits his game.

      • Lbsand

        The main point being: that’s exactly what good coaches do.

      • HTTRQGC

        Cant design clutch. Foles was clutch.

    • Josh RosenSquinns

      Huh?

      -Gruden

    • WHY3

      And I also wonder if Patricia had partially checked out.

  • walter_in_fallschurch

    is there a qb controversy in philly?

    • Flounder

      No they will trade Foles and get a 1st or 2nd for him.

    • Josh RosenSquinns

      No, they’ll roll with Wentz. Get a first for Foles.

    • WHY3

      They won’t get a first, but a second is absolutely conceivable. I can see a team like the Jets doing that.

  • btg

    Foles was dialed in last night
    My gosh

    • Josh RosenSquinns

      He was the same against Minny.

    • WHY3

      He’d be silly to accept a backup role now. If I’m the Eagles, I trade him.

      • kon, for now

        Trading the SBMVP….is crazy

        Fuck them for the luxury of having that choice

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      RPO, Pederson is badass

  • Josh RosenSquinns

    The hit on Cooks. How the hell was that not a helmet to helmet call?

    • Flounder

      They said he had become a runner.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        So helmet to helmet is ok if you’re a runner?

        I think there is an outright ban on helmet to helmet hits period.

  • Josh RosenSquinns

    Love how the Pats tried a pass to Brady and failed. Eagles do the same for a TD. Talk about in your face.

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      well, gizelle has mentioned how he can’t throw them AND catch them. she was certainly right about the catching part.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Epic troll

  • HTTRQGC

    Doug Pederson: ‘ Being aggressive wins Super Bowls. Being conservative gets you 8-8.’
    Thats is real coach speak right there. Closing those 3rd and 4th downs was huge. Same thing Philly did to Skins…no let up on the pedal to the metal. Gruden hopefully took notes.

  • walter_in_fallschurch

    the 3 times in my life i’ve rooted for the belichick*/brady* patriots*, they have lost.

    • Lbsand

      You’re hired.

    • AustinSkin

      I see a trend here. Please stop rooting for the Redskins.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        Meh. He’s not a real fan anyway.

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      on the other hand, it would really suck if the pats* had 8 superb owls.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        I think it would be cool just to have one superb owl.

      • AustinSkin

        Flounder?

        • walter_in_fallschurch

          misspelling “super bowl” with “superb owl” is just a game i play.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Hand

        • Flounder

          Fuck the Eagles.

          • AustinSkin

            You tell ’em, potty mouth.

  • walter_in_fallschurch

    i cannot believe that just happened. i woke up and wondered if it were just a nightmare.

  • Josh RosenSquinns

    Soooo, ummmm… uh, can we… uh… trade Smith for Foles?

    • Kelly

      We don’t technically have Smith. How about Fuller and a 3rd for Foles?

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Can we downgrade that to Dunbar? Or, how ’bout everything for Pederson?

        • HTTRQGC

          This ^^^^

    • AustinSkin

      It will be tough going from Super Bowl MVP to Wentz’s backup.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        They’ll have to trade him….

        Dude balled for them. They gotta go let him go to start somewhere next year.

  • mike5790

    Chris Russell was on the Junkies a few min ago, and they all tripped over themselves trying to figure out the potential Kirk FT thing.
    Why would Cousins want to help the Redskins? The Redskins stabbed him in the back. Cousins can’t talk to teams.

    It would work exactly how this worked for Smith. Kirk would have early Free Agency. I don’t understand why they don’t understand that. There’s risk for sure, but they’re making it out to be something really complex and conspiratorial.

    The real problem Chris has with it is that that they want to hate on Bruce Allen, and if Bruce gets more than a ham sammich back for Kirk, that’s harder to do.

    • Kelly

      Snyder is a Trump guy and a businessman. He sees this stuff in terms of bottom line and winning deals. He has shown zero understanding of chemistry or treating people decently. Fans aren’t rooting for the most ruthlessly successful negotiators, fans are rooting for a team. A team is made up of people who trust each other to watch each others backs so they can focus on getting the job done on the field.

      The tone at Redskins park, based on basically every account from people who have ever worked there in the last 20 years, is that there is no loyalty, there is no trust, there is no team concept. I wish Snyder would just go back to doing Johnny Rockets or whatever, but unfortunately he’s got control of the team I love and he’s going to run it the only way he knows how, which is the wrong way.

      • kon, for now

        Be a damn shame for his limo to be run into a ditch. Followed by a fuel bomb on wheels. Just, tragic.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        He also eats his corn the long way…….and, the long way is the wrong way.

      • mike5790

        If you really look around the pro sports, it is mostly, if you don’t perform, you have to go. Patriots and Steelers did it in the last two months.

        my criticism of the current FO is that they seem to be trying to put together a good team all the way around, but don’t seem to have a lot of identity. that would seem to lead to a lot of 9-7 type seasons because you can’t develop the mismatch advantage in an area or two vs playoff teams. you’re just simply better than most of the league but not playoff caliber.

        And last night should have been a dead give-away at the beginning of the game when Michaels/Collinsworth were talking about this matchup and said, the Eagles have the best OL and DL… and there you go. Everyone should have known that Eagles should have had a real chance with that statement.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        Ate at a Johnny Rockets this weekend. Nod bad.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    I would look at Jaylen Samuels in the middle rounds. Jay could exploit the shit outta him if he is receptive to coaching. NoVaMike has been drafting this guy.

    • mike5790

      Jay doesn’t use a FB/H-back/SlotWR

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        He should. Put that dude out there and A Smith has his check down, 50/50 with CT.
        And if you had a dollar for every time peeps up here told you “Jay doesn’t”, well….

  • AustinSkin

    ..

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Well, we’re down a pick so two DTs in the draft is unlikely.

      • AustinSkin

        D DT/Ioannidis/J. Allen
        McGee/Lanier/Francis(other) works fine for me

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          I’m more for picking up two.

          • AustinSkin

            POONA!

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            There’s one.

      • mike5790

        if they went 1st round true DT, they certainly could pick up a DE/DT later in the draft. That pesticide kid from South Florida might be a nice pick if the mid to late round firstpick grade isn’t totally fake.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    What say you?
    FA DT
    FA WR
    D DT
    D OG
    D RB
    Critical path?

    • AustinSkin

      What say you?

      FA DT – Not too excited about that. Hasn’t worked out well in the past few years
      FA WR – Possible, but spendy for the right candidate
      D DT – A must
      D OG – A must
      D RB – Possibly, if the right one

      The whole world has become a more toxic place, this shit happens all the time nowadays.

  • kon, for now

    I feel like some dark forces are at work. Something unnatural has happened that allowed the eagles to win a super bowl. I suspect, an eagles fan from the future has come back in time and used advanced technology to manipulate events in order for that win to be possible.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Probably Daniel Snyder’s biological father…

  • HTTRsince65

    Happy Monday!

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Hpy Hpy!

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Nick Fole’s play was the key. That game gets too big for him, they don’t win. He falters, and Bill beats Pederson. Pederson trusted his QB and let it all hang out, it paid off in Spades.

    • Kelly

      I called the Patriots to win it because I didn’t think Foles could handle playing on that stage. I was wrong.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        As did I, but I don’t mind it, maybe Dan Snyder was watching and is re-evaluating some folks.

        • Kelly

          Hopefully he’s re-evaluating his exec staff.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Amen.

    • kon, for now

      If his play was the key, giving him all damn day to throw was the key to the pat’s defeat.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Meh…the kid rose up, down the stretch. I’m not taking anything from him. We need to do better, deal with it.

      • HTTRsince65

        He did have all day…..
        Know why? Eagles have great lines! Offense and defensive. I have been saying that’s what we need to do too.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Yeah, but he preformed well through the end of the season, did his part. The eagles could very well have fallen.

          • HTTRsince65

            yes he performed very well but part of that was because he had a long time to throw all quarterbacks at this level will make completions if given enough time.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            We can argue any point, I’m not gonna. They won, he won. If DLinemen don’t know what’s coming, hard to pin their ears back.
            The Doug Pederson WC RPO busted that ass.

          • HTTRsince65

            I’m definitely not arguing I’m just pointing out what I would like our team to do build both lines please.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            I definitely won’t argue against that.

          • Kelly

            Amen to that.

    With the Eagles winning yesterday, the NFC East is now the only division that can proudly boast that all four of its teams have been Super Bowl Champions. No other division in football has this legacy.

    • Flounder

      Yeah they also have the most SB’s 13 of any conference by a wide margin.

    • kon, for now

      The 20th century was a long frign time ago.

  • Flounder

    Philly will also be able to turn Foles into at worst a 2nd round pick they might even get a 1st round pick.

  • Flounder

    Yuck the Eagles are super bowl champions I hate all the other NFC East teams with a passion.

  • p1funk

    On the positive side, it’s certainly satisfying to see that Belijerk and Brady lost the big one. What an atrocious defensive plan. Was that Belicheat’s great idea? As time goes it’s clear that the “Patriot’s Way” is Belichik trying some jagazz moves while relying on Brady to bail them all out.

    On the negative side, my Eagles-fan brother-in-law now has something to chirp about.

    On the positive side of the negative side, though, my brother-in-law isn’t generally a big jerk, so I don’t think he’ll be too obnoxious. And there’s currently an ocean separating us.

      Having things to hang over Eagles fans heads isn’t important. Having a good team is important.

      • DC-Dan

        We don’t have a good team though

        • Kelly

          We sure don’t.

      • Different_Cat

        Disagree. 🙂

    • Rufus_T_Firefly_Jr

      It isn’t over quite yet

  • Kelly

    Might be the last we’ve seen Brady.

  • Rufus_T_Firefly_Jr

    I may be nuts, but I really don’t think the Eagles can go conservative here.

  • kon, for now

    We’ve seen the eagles do that at the end of a game before

  • HTTRQGC

    Brady folding like an accordion…smh. Lawnchair bound.

  • Different_Cat

    Fitting end to a horrible season I guess.

  • Kelly

    First sack is the game clincher… almost

    Zero fckn defense. Kinda sux in a sense.

    That was the most blatant pass interference ever

    • No Punt Intended

      They almost never call it on 2-point tries.

    Comes down to Brady at the end once again

    • HTTRQGC

    Blast

  • No Punt Intended

    Collinsworth is such a drip.

  • King Kerry

    catch was complete and then he made a “football move”

  • Kelly

    It wasn’t a diving catch, he caught, took 3 steps and dove.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Right

  • Rufus_T_Firefly_Jr

    He was a runner. He dove for the end zone, which is a football play

  • N_A_V_I

    No catch

      Always wrong son.

  • Kelly

    My wife: “He clearly had it for, like, ages” (English accent, I love her!)

    That can not be a catch. He lost it after being touched.

    Wtf is Collinsworth talking about? It’s a TD. Ball crossed plane

    • TWISI

      Reciver going to ground or runner is the question

  • No Punt Intended

    He was a runner.

    • TWISI

      Yes

    did anyone make a call?

    or are they going straight to review?

    He was touched. Lost it. After being touched.

    • HTTRQGC

      I hear you. Be rough if Philly does win.

      • MJ45

        Ha, probably.

    HOGAN BROTHER!!!!!

  • Kelly

    Patriots are characteristically not going away.

  • N_A_V_I

    Cox failed to fill that hole.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Cox has been getting double teamed

      • Kelly

        Usually, the double-teaming is done by Cox.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Not in my world

    • No Punt Intended

      Cox broke his protection and came early.

      • N_A_V_I

        Came hard

  • Kelly

    Cousins and Smith are both better QBs than Foles, but Foles is more clutch in big games.

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      Meh foles has barely played enough games

    Now following @Blacture on Twitter. Interesting in seeing where they take this.

    For folks who were wishing the Redskins hadn’t pulled the trigger on the Alex Smith deal, take heart – they still haven’t, technically.

    • HTTRQGC

      They talking KC tag and trade now…should have played that card 1st

      • Big Buck64

        Clown show . Embarrassing

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      Amazing people praising Smith and damning Cousins for on field play. Both guys are equally mediocre IMO

      • HTTRQGC

        Smith puts up more Ws. Other side of mediocre fwiw

        • Back to the good ol daysBruce

          He’s had a ton of help

          Smith doesn’t put up W’s. His team does

            He beat us.

          • DC-Dan

          Ahhh there it is. Prince getting fucked by bad contractual agreements even beyond the grave.

  • Different_Cat

    The guy from The Office is going to play Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan? Interesting choice.

    • Kelly

      It’s Jim!

    • No Punt Intended

      Rainn Wilson?

  • MJ45

    It looks like the halftime show was filmed a week ago.

  • Kelly

    That kid was so blown away he couldn’t do anything but stare at his phone. Even though clearly the plan was for JT to come up to that spot and do a selfie with him.

  • TWISI

    Not bad.

  • DC-Dan

    That last song was very 90s boy band

    • Different_Cat

      Disney movie

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Daughter is flipping out to this song right now, lmfao

  • King Kerry

    and they just keep going, they won’t stop…

  • Kelly

    Okay, that made me cry when they turned the city purple

    • Different_Cat

      Very cool

    • No Punt Intended

      JF Christ

      • Lbsand

        Yes?

  • Lbsand

    That’s better: just keyed up Zeppelin’s ‘Physical Graffiti’. The Wanton Song.

    • kon, for now

      Good choice

  • Kelly

    I have recognized one song so far – Get yer sexy on

  • Lbsand

    OK, sound off now…

  • N_A_V_I

    Worst outfits on set

  • Lbsand

    The best ‘not my genre’ halftime show was Bruno Mars. I had no idea he was so good.

    • DC-Dan

      He was a heck of a lot better than this

      • Lbsand

        >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

  • kon, for now

    I’d rather see the iggles run the score up

  • Different_Cat

    Sound is screwed up.

  • kon, for now

    Not my wheelhouse

    At all

  • Lbsand

    Definitely NOT my genre…but he’s talented as hell.

  • kon, for now

    It’s important right now to be the one with the remote control

  • N_A_V_I

    Of course I’m at a pats SB party. Quiet as a mouse in the biatch

    • kon, for now

      As long as it’s not one of those leave your shoes at the door parties

  • TWISI

    No defense necessary

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Eli’s pilot

  • Lbsand

    Peterson with the ballsiest SB call since S. Payton’s onside kick. A high school play at that.

    • kon, for now

      Didn’t look ballsy to me

      Just dumb luck is all

      • Lbsand

        Dude.

        • kon, for now

          Yea

          I said it

          • Lbsand

            LOL. Stupid, but yeah you did.

          • kon, for now

            And I’d do it again!

          • Lbsand

            Now I just spewed whiskey on my keyboard! Good one, k0n.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        BS, ran their own play back at them, from closer in.

      • Kelly

        Ballsier than a bukkake shoot. He ran a trick play on 4th down with the lead, with 3 easy points on the table. If that didn’t work, he looks like an idiot.

        • kon, for now

          Thanks for saying why it wasn’t ballsy

          • Kelly

            You’re alone on this one, but I applaud you for standing your ground.

          • Lbsand

            Drinking ‘Texas Tea’ tonight?

  • Kelly

    I dunno what Eli was doing, but I enjoyed it

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Practice

  • kon, for now

    Whatever the final score, the iggles shit their wad to get here

    They’re not going to be the same team next season

    • HTTRQGC

      They have lotta talent. Wont lose them all.

      • Kelly

        They have a good organization.

    • N_A_V_I

      20 of 22 starters are signed through next year.

      • kon, for now

        They’re over the cap

        Can’t bring back there top FAs without drastic cuts or dumping guys in trades for peanuts

  • Back to the good ol daysBruce

    Pederson is a good fckn coach. Damnit

  • HTTRQGC

    Brady looks awful rickety running the ball. He should just fold up before taking off…

  • N_A_V_I

    Padding the stats

  • Different_Cat

    Pats are still going to win.

    • Kelly

      It’s shaping up to be a great finish

  • DC-Dan

    Well, that’s one thing Brady does like a 40 year old…run

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Pederson with the ultimate troll.

    • kon, for now

      Right?

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Brady lawn chaired

  • Different_Cat

    BB chooses to kick a FG on 4th and short inside the 5, Pederson pulls the gadget play out of his ass….

  • Back to the good ol daysBruce

    Welp. That’s what you do when you playin the pats. Take chances

  • King Kerry

    yeah, Foles is a bit more athletic than Brady.

    • kon, for now

      A bit

  • N_A_V_I

    Lions might fire Patercia during half time

  • DC-Dan

    It sucks that Pederson is in our division

    • kon, for now

      I’m more worried about Jay being in the division

      • DC-Dan

        That too

  • Kelly

    Pardon me while I hire a hire a forklift to move Pederson’s balls.

  • DC-Dan

    That’s a SB winning call right there

    OMG what play was that?

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Woooooweeeeeee

  • King Kerry

  • N_A_V_I

    Good no call

    • Kelly

      Yeah, after the replay, I agree

  • TWISI

    I like the aggression

  • Kelly

    No flag?

    • HTTRsince65

      There was no pasz interference so why would there be a flag

  • MJ45

    Patricia’s defense is worthy of him getting a head coaching gig?

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      Yes. He’s a good coach.

  • Kelly

    This Clemenns/Clements kid gives zero fucks

  • HTTRQGC

    Sproles may be expendable.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    What the fuck kinda tackling was that?

  • N_A_V_I

    Tackle anyone?

  • MJ45

    Foles the next $30 million per year man

  • Kelly

    Who is that guy? He just trucked a safety.

  • HTTRQGC

    Nice execution

    • No Punt Intended

      TY.

      – Texas

  • DC-Dan

    The tackling has been less than stellar tonight

  • Kelly

    I think that’s a catch and a football move and a fumble.

  • HTTRQGC

    Pats get the ball 1st 2nd half. Eagles need to score before half to keep pace.

  • Kelly

    WTF is Persil? I thought this was a Tide game.

    Surprised Michelob Ultra went with the “What is your name, Bud?” line. Risky move there.

  • HTTRsince65

    Alshon Jeffery, a former Gamecock, having the game of his life. I told you their defense is strong and so is a rushing attack that’s why I figured 37 to 19 or 39 to 17 or whatever I predicted earlier today

    • Kelly

      I didn’t see your prediction earlier 🙁

    • Big Buck64

      no you didn’t . never happened

      • HTTRsince65

  • MJ45

    Is Foles a FA after this game?

    • DC-Dan

      Negative

      • Different_Cat

        Philly’s gonna trade him after the game.

        • MJ45

          They still have suds correct?

          • Different_Cat

            yep

    • DC-Dan

      He looked awful running the ball in preseason and I’d be surprised if he ever sees the field in an NFL game. I have no issue with being wrong though

    • No Punt Intended

      He’s probably still that 4.2 speedster after ripping his patellar tendon.

  • AustinSkin

    Close out the scoring for the 1st quarter right now = $125

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      I’m wondering what square board you got on where you could buy all the threes.

      • AustinSkin

        I bought 8 squares and ran the Pats with 3

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Yeah, I remember you posted it.

          • AustinSkin

    first drives often don’t mean anything, however, I’m afraid my prediction may be true. The Eagles defense and rushing attack is strong.

  • Rick Deez

    New Orleans
    Miami
    Houston
    Dallas
    L.A.
    LasVegas

    ….those are the only cities that should have Super Bowls.

      Jacksonville?

        Oh yeah…Tampa….not Jacksonville…they don’t have the infrastructure and everything closes up early.

    • kon, for now

      Houston?

      No thank you. That place is a carcinogenic cesspool.

    I think the Eagles could actually blow out the Patriots…They’ve got good pressure up front. Having said that….Patriots 27 Eagles 23.

      They should also report that Justin Timberlake could retire after halftime, and that Trump could resign in the 3rd quarter.

            He overthinks situations, often to his detriment.

        • Different_Cat

      Denver won 5 games and once they pay Cousins will have no money to fix their awful o-line.

    Kelli, could not disagree with you more about Mass being terrible from a sports perspective. Unless you’re not a fan of the local teams. If you are, then you’re looking at your 11th Championship parade since 2001, pats 6 times, sox 3 times, celtics once soon to be twice, and the Bruins once.
