    Brett Myers admitted to reaching the 250 mark when last season ended but a better diet and renewed work out regimen has him at a lean 218. “I started (working out) a little earlier this year and I haven’t been able to fit into this suit in two years now and I finally made my…

    Feb 6, 2007, 3:12 PM EDT

    You may remember a week or so ago when I asked my old pal from The Hub for his thoughts on the Eagles near defeat of the Mighty Patriots.  (See: "Masshole Responds")  Well he’s back and this time I didn’t ask him for it.  This one came unsolicited.  But this friend is one of those…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.…
