Eagles are eliminated from the playoffs, but it’s not the end of the world

The headline says it all. Calm down Eagles fans! Seriously, it’s as if Andy Reid were still here. All I keep seeing are calls for either Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman to be fired (or both), or for the Eagles to trade everyone to move up to get Marcus Mariota in the draft. Anyone who believes they should do any of these three things is absolutely clueless. I know you’re mad, but that doesn’t mean … Continue reading

Eagles playoff scenarios: detailed situations of how they make the postseason

The Eagles stand at 9-5 after 15 weeks of the regular season, a very good record. Except this year, it may not be good enough to make the playoffs, even if they win the next two games. After a loss to the Cowboys on Sunday night, they relinquished their ability to control their own destiny into the playoffs, meaning they’ll need some help from other teams. Suddenly, the losses to San Francisco and Arizona are … Continue reading

Seahawks embarrass Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII

As long as I’ve been watching the Super Bowl, I have never seen one this lopsided and surprising. The last one I remember being this much of a blowout was when the Ravens beat the Giants for their first in franchise history, but that was over a decade ago. And this game was even more of a rout, with the Seahawks managing a 35 point victory by a score of 43-8. This game proved one … Continue reading

Super Bowl XLVIII prediction: Broncos vs. Seahawks

Ah, where to begin. The Super Bowl is the culmination of 20 weeks of NFL football, some teams playing only 16, but the lucky ones playing in more. The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks are the last two standing, and I can’t say I’m too surprised by this one. While it’s actually rare to have both #1 seeds in the Super Bowl, these two teams were just too dominant not to keep winning. This … Continue reading

2014 NFL Playoff predictions: Divisional Championship Round

After a wonderful week of games in the Wild Card Round, this round should bring equally exciting games with no matchup that should be a mismatch. Despite some serious differences in seeding, all teams have shed their seeds and proved that anything can happen once the playoffs roll around. Even though the home teams this week have a combined record of 29-3 at home, 3 of 4 of the home teams lost last round. There … Continue reading

2014 NFL Playoff results: Wild Card Round

This weekend produced an excellent group of NFL games that proved just how exciting playoff football can be. We saw a 28 point comeback, two game-winning FGs, and a “weak” 6th seed dismantle an AFC favorite. The lower seed won 3 of the 4 games, which just further proves how unimportant seeding and records become when the playoffs come. Records were being broken left and right and it created a wonderful four games of football. … Continue reading

Offense stalls, Eagles exit the playoffs early

In heartbreaking fashion, the Eagles lost to the Saints yesterday 26-24 and were eliminated in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. While it was an early exit, there is nothing to be ashamed of this season. The fact that the Eagles got this far is saying a lot, but it can’t mask the fact that they could’ve won this game and be playing another week. The offense, which was 2nd best in the league … Continue reading

It should be a good weekend of football. NFC (6) New Orleans Saints vs. (3) Philadelphia Eagles As I already … Continue reading

Here are the many reasons why the Eagles have a great chance at winning. … Continue reading
