This Eagles team is more special than “super”…

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog This Eagles team is more special than “super”… I owe the Philadelphia Eagles an apology. I’m sorry I underestimated them as a team when back in August I predicted them to finish at 9-7 and maybe—maybe—qualify for a wild-card playoff spot. I owe Mychal Kendricks an apology, too. In my pre-game review for the NFC Championship game, I referred to the difference between the talent levels of Mychal and his brother Eric (who plays LB for the Vikings). I gave Eric the edge, symbolic of the overall defensive edge I felt the...

Vikings vs. Eagles will test your mind and heart as a Philly fan

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog Vikings vs. Eagles will test your mind and heart as a Philly fan This is it. You wanted playoff football? You got it.

Granted (no pun intended), we’ve been running a lot of conservative RPO stuff since Nick Foles took over at QB.  But today, it will be revealed that Case Keenum will be reduced to the same stratagem. You see, the Eagles defense has the Vikings offense figured out. The Minnesota offensive line...

A case for “suspended animation” of Eagles season…

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog A case for “suspended animation” of Eagles season… I’m enjoying the fact that our Eagles are in the NFC Championship game so much that I don’t want to let it go. I hesitate to talk about it much. If for some cataclysmic reason the season ended today and the Big Game were never played, I’d be satisfied with this season’s ending exactly as it is now. Compounding my current brain freeze is the realization that the Minnesota Vikings are a very likeable team. There’s no residual rivalry, no lingering hatred or envy between...

It’s okay to call Eagles “Boy Dogs” again…

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog It’s okay to call Eagles “Boy Dogs” again… We had a regular reader and occasional commentator here back in the day, her name was Lana from Valdosta, Georgia. She was one of the two regular female fans who hung round these parts. The other was French Lady Fan, who hailed from Northern Italy. Lana was proud of her local high school team—the Valdosta Wildcats, arguably the winningest high school team in amateur football history. Lana coined the phrase “Stay on Football!” whenever anyone here (including myself) inquired about her social status as an...
