Posted in Blogroll on September 16th, 2008 by Ron Glover

In a highly entertaining contest which saw both teams combine for 54 points at the intermission, the Dallas Cowboys capitalized on a fumbled handoff late in the game to outlast the Philadelphia Eagles 41-37.

The Rivalry That Is The Philadelphia Eagles vs. The Dallas Cowboys: Through My Eyes

Posted in Blogroll on September 15th, 2008 by Ron Glover

Tonight marks the Philadelphia Eagles final visit to Texas Stadium (barring a playoff match up), the site of many great battles between the Birds and the ‘Boys. With both teams sights locked on Tampa in February, this early season battle will add another chapter to one of the NFL’s most bitter rivalries. But for yours truly, it will be one more game where I keep the TUMS within arms reach.

Obama Waffles? Racist Republicans Pull Out All the Stops

Posted in Blogroll on September 14th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Video was on auto play so it had to go, but this is disgusting. I’m not posting a pic.

When are these people going to speak on the issues?

It’s funny how this election is pulling people’s yeah I’m a racist so what card. Seriously, Black people don’t do this stuff. It’s either you are for America changing or not.

Satire my ass!

Ron Glover’s Week 2 NFL Predictions

Posted in Blogroll on September 12th, 2008 by Ron Glover

The egg on my face from last week’s Giants/Redskins match up is finally gone. This week we have a schedule full of bitter rival match ups. Expect some physical games as teams try to grab a psychological edge early in the season.

Here are some rivalries of note: Green Bay at Detroit, Oakland at Kansas City, San Diego at Denver, N.Y. Jets at New England, wrapping it up Monday night in Dallas will be the Eagles taking on the Cowboys.

*Note the Ravens/Texans game has been postponed until November 9th because of Hurricane Ike.

Friday Fire: Vince Young, Whatcha Gonna Do Bruh?

Posted in Blogroll, Ernie Johnson on September 12th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

I swore I wasn’t writing anything about this non-story and a lot of people–including you Jason Whitlock–are not going to like what I have to say because I go hard on a brotha. I’m taking a hardcore peace stand just in case no one else does. I don’t write like this all the time obviously, but when I see bs? I’m gonna call it exactly what it is….bs.

I think it’s crazy that a grown man can’t go to his boy’s house to watch Monday night football without the cops being called.

Maybe they thought he was gonna rob somebody of their hubcaps or something and his gold chain was going to get caught in the wheel well as he ran from the cops.

TBR’s Week 2 NFL Power Rankings

Posted in Blogroll on September 11th, 2008 by Ron Glover

I would first like to apologize for not putting out my predictions for last week’s games as well as my season predictions (Thanks for backing me up Mizzo!). I was holed up in jury duty for the week. After my Thursday night prediction maybe it was a good thing 🙂

Nevertheless here are my Week 2 NFL Power Rankings:

September 11th 2001: Where Were You? What Were Your Thoughts?

Posted in Blogroll on September 11th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

My sincerest condolences to anyone here who lost a family member, friend or co worker on that fateful day or to anyone who happens to stop by for that matter.

When traveling to New York from Philly, the New York skyline is amazing to see simply because of how huge it is. Philly is nothing to shake a stick at, but it pales in comparison. The best part was when you are about to enter the Lincoln Tunnel and as you are coming off the ramp, the skyline smacks you in the face. It’s so close at that point and then in a flash it’s gone.

The size of those two buildings was almost frightening.

But they’re gone…

Still to this day, whenever I see a plane flying overhead I think of the twin towers.

What really happened and why? I’m sure we all have our thoughts.

Personally that day was the true shock and awe.

The Courage, Resolve and Responsibility of Reggie Williams

Posted in Blogroll on September 10th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

(Photo: NY Times)

Rehab has become a never ending theme in Reggie Williams’ life

Imagine overcoming a severe hearing disability just to become a “regular” kid. Imagine growing up in Flint and dreaming of playing for the University of Michigan to no avail because you are labeled too small by its Hall of Fame head coach. Imagine being told by your high school counselor, shortly after Bo Schembechler turns you away, you aren’t intelligent enough to attend Dartmouth.

Hunting For the God Particle Via The Large Hadron Collider: Are You Cool With This?

Posted in Blogroll on September 9th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

I came across this while doing some research and thought I’d pass it along. On September 9th, there will be an experiment that concerns me quite a bit. Now, I’m no scientist, but I’m concerned enough to find out more about this landmark experiment and get your opinion.

I’m all for finding out how it all came to be but damn man.

Please check it out and pass it along. This is something that must be discussed.

Donovan McNabb, DeSean Jackson and the Philadelphia Eagles Put the NFL On Notice

Posted in Blogroll on September 9th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Yeah it’s early but…

You all know how we Philly get down here. 4 of us write from in or in close proximity to the COBL, so what else would it be? At least one of us will be covering Eagles home games so we’ll have quotes from whoever chooses to speak.

Philly ran up, around and through a crazy over matched Rams defense. When Leonard Little went out, St. Louis could not apply any professional pressure and Donovan picked them apart. He had 293 yards in the first half–a caveat the networks failed to report. I know I know, the story was Tom Brady and to a lesser extent Vince Young, but when the hell is Donovan going to get the historical respect he deserved. Besides Brady he is the most accomplished playoff QB (overall, not rings…get it right) in the entire league. Something has to be said for that. He also became the NFL quarterback of record with the lowest interception ratio ever.

What!

NFL Week One Schedule and Predictions

Posted in Blogroll on September 5th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

So…it’s that time again. I can’t wait to hear the planes fly overhead, the snot smacks, the grunts, blocked punts, runbacks, pick six’s, busted plays, Randy Moss all day, Ocho Cinco’s first score, Mendenhall lore, Parcell chores….yeah yeah, give me some more.

This period between the NBA and the NFL is growing longer and longer and longer. It was so bad that the only thing I looked forward to was what happened in politics.

Yo, that’s crazy!

No more my friends because I can’t wait for that first Heineken burp. You know the one after the wings are gone and your mouth is hot.

Mmm, I love it a lot.

Flip the coin man. I’m ready to go like now.Lets Get It NFL! Lets Get It! We also will be covering games in the Iledelph from the press box this season, so check for that. Big games will be live blogged. Starting off with a clean slate here. Don’t hate 😉

Friday Fire: How Does the 2008 NFL Season Shake Out?

Posted in Blogroll on September 5th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

CJ will wreck the league this year

Can’t believe it’s time for the NFL. Are you ready? Last night the season kicked off with a snore as Brandon Jacobs, Plaxico Burress and the New York Giants bullied a Washington Redskins team in total disarray 16-7. BJ gave the Skins that cold rock stuff didn’t he? Why wasn’t Santana Moss’ catch challenged? Play blown dead?

Here’s how think the 2008 NFL season will go down.

John McCain Addresses the Republican National Convention

Posted in Blogroll on September 5th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Is John McCain done speaking yet?

John McCain was predictably John McCain in his speech. Nothing special. He wasn’t going to shock and awe anyone with his oratory skills anyway.

Yeah he spoke again about what he did for this country.

Where were his stories about keeping America safe? Where were his economic solution stories?

He’s banking on Sarah Palin to do his dirty work across the nation in attempts to cancel out Barack Obama’s star power.

They are probably still briefing Palin on foreign policy and will be doing so until we all vote in November.

Yeah McCain did call out his party. Yeah he did give Barack Obama respect.

So what…

Who do I think wins the election?
