The worlds of video games, social media and the National Football League are about to cross paths again.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Rovio Entertainment are launching an all-new version of the Angry Birds game, which will be available Sept. 4 exclusively on the NFL team’s Facebook page. Click Continue reading
It’s kind of amazing to me how people think sometimes. Bernard Hopkins has a big title fight coming up in 10 days, But first, he thought he would weigh in on Washington Redskins QB Donovan McNabb.
I want to stop right here and ask the question: Hopkins has a fight in 10 days. Doesn’t he have enough to do and look forward to in getting ready for a fight without wondering about McNabb’s skin color? I’m just asking here.
“Forget this,” said Hopkins, who is black, while pointing to his skin (via Philly.com). “He’s got a suntan. That’s all.”
Wow. I guess we should give Hopkins the benefit of the doubt right? I mean, he is from Philadelphia right?

Negative news still surrounds NFL QB Michael Vick.
Michael Vick has told federal investigators that he never used performance-enhancing drugs, but Plano steroids trafficker David Jacobs told The Dallas Morning News before his death that he was Vick’s supplier when Vick played for the Atlanta Falcons.
I would like to give Vick the benefit of the doubt here, and I wonder why the Dallas Morning News is dragging this story out, especially since Mr. Jacobs is no longer alive to attest to these “facts”.
The News did not publish Jacobs’ allegations against the NFL quarterback because authorities at the time declined to confirm Vick was part of the Jacobs investigation.
I don’t claim to be an attorney, but I have to wonder what the motivation for this story is. It’s my belief that Vick has indeed turned his life around and has been sincere and successful in doing so. I don’t mean to be funny here when I say isn’t it time we stop dog-piling on Michael Vick?

The demons are dead. Finally.
And what bettter way to exorcise demons than to beat your most hated rival 3 times in one season, the final game last night should not have left any doubt.
Man, where do I start?
How about setting the record straight?
The Cowboys’ 34-14 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday night was not just another wild-card victory in the club’s rich history. This win erased 156 months and 4,760 days of postseason failure. This win means the Cowboys are once again relevant in January.
Romo led an offense that sucked the life out of the Eagles by holding the ball more than 39 minutes. The Cowboys threw 27 points at the Eagles in the second quarter to erase any doubt.
So…..what I want to ask the Philly team and fans now is, who got stung? Can you speak up? I can’t hear you.
Don’t you feel bad for spitting on our Star now?
More later, but for now, let’s enjoy the victory, the domination and HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS!!!!!!!!!!
I am still enjoying the victory by the Cowboys over the Eagles yesterday. I always like reading the newspaper of the city the Cowboys beat, like the Philadelphia Inquirer. This was pretty funny to me.
There were hints that Reid, McDermott, and Marty Mornhinweg held back in game-planning. The Eagles did not blitz Dallas quarterback Tony Romo the way they needed to. Was that because they thought this was the best approach, or because they didn’t want to show all their cards?
The Eagles will officially name Sean McDermott as their defensive coordinator at a 1 p.m. news conference tomorrow.
McDermott, an assistant with the Eagles since 1999, replaces Jim Johnson, who is battling the metastatic melanoma that was discovered in his back during the Eagles’ playoff run last January.
Based on the Eagles’ defensive accomplishments during Johnson’s 10 seasons in Philadelphia, McDermott, the 35-year-old graduate of La Salle High School, has monumental shoes to fill.

Meet The …
Eagles, backed by two injury-prone, aging talents with yet another shot at fantasy greatness! Andy Reid and company have loaded up on new toys for Donovan McNabb. They are hoping to rekindle the memories of when a guy named T.O. was around. Finally, McNabb breathes deep and says, “Now I have enough playmakers.” However, will he and his homeboy Brian Westbrook actually be able to stay healthy?
