Even field Negroes like to play.

Monday Morning Quarterbacking

Like I didn't see this coming: Yes my iggles got their asses kicked last night, and the scary thing is, it could have been worse. I mean wasn't it just a two years ago that their defense was dominating the NFC? And don't get me wrong, the rookie from LSU, Joseph Addai is a nice runner, but the last time I checked Jim Brown retired from football. Or did he? Was that Jimmy B I saw last night gashing the iggles for seven and eight yards a pop last night? Sad indeed!

And please, I don't want to hear about McNabb being hurt and the T.O. effect still lingering from last year. Let's face it Eagle Nation; it's OVER for this team! Oh, and before I forget; let me be the first to say it right now: Jimmy Johnson, our defensive coordinator must go! Yes, it's time. I am sorry Jimmy, you served this town and the iggles well, but the game has passed you by. All the other coordinators have caught up to you and know just how to beat you now. Maybe if you had a little more talent you could cover up some of your deficiencies, but you don't so you must go!

Nice to see the G-Man collapse against the Titans. I am eating a little crow today. I said previously on this blog that Vince Young should not be starting this year in the NFL. Well, it seems I was wrong. Hey Jeff Fisher, that's why you are the coach and I am not.

Now let's talk some college football real quick. If their is a faster team on both sides of the ball than USC, I would like to see them. I loved how they put a serious ass whopping on my least favorite team in all of football-pros and college- those sorry ass "domers". Yeah Brady Quinn is alright, and he will play on Sundays, but they have never seen speed like SC's all year, and maybe next time they will play a real schedhule instead of loading up with the Army Navies of the world.

And oh how the mighty have fallen. FSU and Miami's total record is 12-12, and Wake freaking Forest is sitting on top of the ACC. Not to mention Rutgers with only one loss and a shot at the Big East title. Cue in Twilight Zone music here please.

I hope USC and Ohio play for the National Championship-Michigan you had your shot-, and I don't want to hear anybody even mention Florida in the same breath as OSU, USC, and Michigan, they don't even belong in the same stadium with those teams.

Have the Flyers left the cellar yet?

Suicide Watch!

Folks, that splashing sound you here is that of my fellow Philadelphians jumping off the Ben Franklin Bridge. Yes my friends, the "Chunky Soup Man" D Mc is out for the season, and possibly for some of next season as well. Talk about Black Sunday, this was it! Not only did the iggles stink up the joint against the lowly Titans, but they didn't even come to play. They made Vince Young look like Fran Tarkenton out there. -I bet he was having USC Texas flashbacks all game. The iggles D must have looked like SoCal in that championship game to him- And the defense was gashed over and over by big plays. Oh, and I think Pac Man Jones is still running!

The iggles were unprepared, undisciplined, out of sync, and unmotivated. I hate to say it Andy, but you have one more year. Actually, if they -the birds-lose out this year, it could be your last in Philly town. We appreciate the five straight trips to the NFC championship game, the Super Bowl appearance, and being in the NFC East hunt damn near every year that you have been here. But what have you done for us lately?

Oh, and the news gets worse. Former Eagle, Andre Waters, died suddenly today-maybe he saw the game on Sunday-No I shouldn't joke about that. This is serious, my condolences to his family.

Oh, and the Sixers and the Flyers lost-so what else is new?- C-Web is bitching about playing time. The guy makes 20 million per year and bitches about playing time. Pay me 20 million a year to sit on the bench and cheer on my team mates. Go A.I. Go!!!!! Sh%*. I will be the best damn cheer leader in the history of the NBA.

One good thing came out of this dreadful weekend, and that is that Ryan Howard won the National League MVP today. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think it's the first time someone in the National League won the rookie of the year award, and come back and win the MVP the following year. I know Cal Ripkin did it in the American League, but I don't think it's ever been done on the senior circuit.

But that's where the good news ends. Because the Phils lost the bidding war for Alfonso Soriano to the stinking Cubs. Looks like he did get his eight year deal after all. One day the Phillies are going to realize that they are a Major League team competing with the big boys, and not some double A farm team in Altoona some damn where!!

Now I gotta go, I have an appointment with my shrink.

The Week That Was

So my iggles finally broke their losing streak with a nice win over the Skins-who was that left handed impostor of Mark Brunell playing QB for Washington Sunday?-The D looked good, and they finally ran the damn ball. Dante Stallworth looks like the real deal, he runs nice patterns, and has world class speed. Now if he can just stay healthy.

Lovie's Bears might be for real after all. The put a nice ass whupping on the G men, even though half of their line was out, it was still a nice win for da Bears. Did anyone catch the San Diego Cincinnati game? Hey, I thought Marvin Lewis was supposed to preach defense?
Indy is still undefeated, so what else is new. They will win twelve or thirteen games this year, and lose in the playoffs before they can get to the big game again. Why you say? I will tell you why: He is called Peyton, and that guy could never win the big one. He had to leave Tennessee for them to get a National Championship.

I want to switch gears real quick, and talk about the General. Now this is a tough one for me, because I loved John Chaney when he was coaching, and I saw him grab his players all the time. But Bobby Knight has a history, and he should know better than thumping a player on his chin in the middle of a fuc*&%g game. The man has some serious anger management problems. But hey, if the player or his parents didn't have a problem with it, I am going to leave it alone.
But I love the hypocrites who were screaming at the University of Miami President for her to do something about her players after that fight, but have no problem with the Texas Tech administration staying quiet on this one. Hey, is that crickets I hear?

Looking forward to Michigan Ohio State this Saturday, I am not sure if Super Mario is playing or not. If he is, I am taking Michigan in a squeaker. If not, I am going with The Ohio State University.

What? An African didn't win the NYC Marathon? Just WTF is the world coming to?

Monday Morning Quarterback

My iggles didn't play yesterday, so I almost played a round of golf and ignore the "no fun league." At the last minute my buddy called and canceled our game-wife issues- and I was forced to watch some of the games. Now I am glad I did. The thriller in DC. between the pokes and the skins was probably the best game so far this year. The way that game ended; to quote the Master Card people, was priceless!

And memo to my man T.O. I loved the end zone celebration-going to sleep with the football as a pillow-but you have got to catch those bombs from your QB. If you are going to complain that you want the damn ball, when you get it, you had better deliver. They are paying you a whole lot of money down there in Big D.

Sorry, I am still not feeling Indy. something about the makeup of that team just tells me that they will choke in January. Sorry Lovie, da Bears are still not legit on offense. I was never a big Rex Grossman fan, and after watching his performance against the fish at home, I have to wonder. Oh, and WTF is wrong with the Steelers, maybe Lynn Swann running for governor jinxed them. I saw start my man Charlie Batch until Big Ben gets healthy again.

Can we talk hoops for a minute? Is my man A.I. the truth or what? Thirty one and thirteen dimes to go with it on almost 50% shooting from the floor. Yeah I know it's early, but the Sixers are 3-0. I think Mo really has them playing some D now, and the rookie they drafter looks pretty decent. He actually played some nice D on Tamia's man at the end of the Magic game in Orlando, which helped the Sixers get that win.

As for the Flyers....well, they stink! There is just no other way to put it. I will be surprised if they make the playoffs this year. And in the NHL, missing the playoffs is hard to do.

And I am starting to wonder about Mike Shula. Hey, you cannot lose to Mississippi State at home. I don't care what the circumstances are. Nice win for Crooms, and it's always good to see an African American head coach do well in college. But does he have to do it at the tide's expense?

The field is out!
