    Feb 6, 2007, 12:30 PM EDT

    Football Food For Fans ~ Week 12, originally uploaded by Mark K_NJ With the Eagles playing a team from Seattle, what would Mark cook up in honor of the great Northwest? From Mark’s flickr page: So what I did was I took two nice pieces of salmon, did a beer batter using Anchor Steam beer,…

  2. Dawkins Doesnt Care About the Pro Bowl Either

    Feb 6, 2007, 11:48 AM EDT

    The NFC’s defense is looking a little less fierce than anticipated for this year’s Pro Bowl, with Brian Dawkins and Brian Urlacher stating they won’t be able to suit up. Urlacher hurt his toe in the Super Bowl, but Dawk pulled out for “personal reasons,” which one can only assume are “the Pro Bowl is…

  3. Are Philly Fans Magical?

    Feb 6, 2007, 10:16 AM EDT

    Science says: No. A very interesting article in the Washington Post takes a look at how fans believe they’re thinking is somehow responsible for their teams actions.  A psychologist at Princeton University observed a group of die hard Eagles fans before, during, and after their Super Bowl loss two years ago. At the end of…

  4. Bedard in Philly?

    Feb 6, 2007, 10:08 AM EDT

    I was more than a little surprised to hear the morning shows talking about a possible trade offer for Erik Bedard today, their source being the Metro. The commuter paper reports that Pat Gillick has offered Kyle Kendrick and Shane Victorino, plus two unnamed prospects, for Bedard, who was arguably the best starter in the…

  5. Flyers Get Wild on the Road

    Feb 6, 2007, 8:13 AM EDT

    Although there have been some struggles at home recently, the Flyers are keeping up with the Rangers and the surging Devils by winning away, with four straight wins on the road. Last night in Minnesota, the Jeff Carter line did the scoring, and backup goalie Antero Niittymaki had another solid night in net, with the…

  6. Iguodala’s Got Game

    Feb 6, 2007, 12:19 AM EDT

    The Sixers handed the Nets another tough loss last night at the Wachovia Center.  Andre Iguodala had a sick line, dropping a career high 15 assists to go along with his 23 points. The Sixers seem to like this thing they call winning.  I get the sense a certain player living near the Rockies had…

  7. Quotable: Favre vs. McNabb

    Feb 5, 2007, 10:17 PM EDT

    A comment from Chris on my last post in which I mentioned that John Clayton believes the Eagles should look at how well Favre has done in his "old age" when they decide on the fate of five. Allow me to put this in perspective. Clayton seems to forget: Favre is an NFL iron man.…

  8. Sir Charles Can Gamble

    Feb 5, 2007, 10:11 PM EDT

    Sir Charles likes to throw some money around.  How’d he do this weekend?  Up almost three quarters of a million — not too shabby. [Fanhouse]

  9. McNabb Practices, Should Be Ready For Giants This Week

    Feb 5, 2007, 3:38 PM EDT

    Number five returned to practice today with the Birds and should be the starting quarterback on Sunday against the Giants.  Mathematically speaking, the Eagles are not eliminated from the playoff hunt just yet, but realistically, most fans don’t believe the team will get there. This leads to the question of what the final four games…

  10. DMac Has Nothing on Cool J

    Feb 5, 2007, 2:51 PM EDT

    A snippet from the Orlando Sentinel blog about the ESPN party in Miami.  No commentary needed. Among those ushered onto the exclusive grounds: Alyssa Milano, Bonnie Bernstein, Donovan McNabb, Troy Smith, Tom Brady and Brady Quinn. Those people did not excite me, though. When LL Cool J took the stage, though … there is a…

  11. Puppy Bowl III

    Feb 5, 2007, 12:12 PM EDT

    I hear Puppy Bowl III was a tremendous game.  As MJD at Deadspin said "I couldn’t enjoy this more if they had a couple of black lab head coaches." Enjoy this video, complete with Harry the K play by play, via Philadelphia Will Do.

  12. J.E. Skeets is Good, STEPHEN A. IS NOT

    Feb 5, 2007, 11:09 AM EDT

    J.E. Skeets of The Basketball Jones has taken over the NBA Closer over at Deadspin.  This morning’s Closer is particularly amazing, done by NONE OTHER THAN STEPHEN A. SMITH.  Go check it out and then tell me you didn’t do the voice in your head while reading. [Deadspin]
