Philadelphia Eagles Fans Supporting Home Field Advantage

Hello Philadelphia fans and welcome to another opportunity to show our Eagles some home field love. We’ve all heard by now how some of the so-called NFL experts have disrespected the Philadelphia Eagles by calling them a long shot to win, making them an underdog in polls, placing them last in football power rankings and so on. Our Eagles players and staff have locked their inner circle and now operate under the “We All We Have – We All We Need” understanding. Every week as our Eagles feel the disrespect, they keep proving their unbelievers wrong. Once again, our Eagles are being disrespected vs the Vikings by not being favored to win at home. The crazier thing is now we have national and local reporters under estimating our Philadelphia fan home base. Yes while at work I will listen to the local radio airwaves to hear what’s being said on “WIP” and the “Fanatic” radio stations.

I couldn’t believe that a local journalist came back onto our local Philly airwaves to clear up what he thought that was okay to say about our Philadelphia fanbase as it relates to “Home Field Advantage”. Also clear across the country was the same media guy that disrespected our coach Doug Pederson (saying he wasn’t qualified to be a NFL coach) also chimed in his thoughts about the minimal impact that our fans could have in the game. The Philly reporter made his argument around another guy that used some analytic numbers who also pointed out that Philly fans impact was one of the worst of all the teams. Ok, so I will NOT try to insult our Philadelphia Eagles fan base intelligence with these two-people news blog on trying to analyze the Eagles fan base. You know what, just as point of reference you can see them by Clicking Here 1st and Clicking Here 2nd when you have some time to waste. Nope even better, read them about 12 hrs. before the game and use them as your pre-game get pumped fuel.

What I do want you to do is listen to our local Philly journalist on WIP the other day trying to defend himself by Clicking Here Now. While analytics may tell you many things, I don’t know how well it can show you someone’s passion, desire and mindset. What I do know is that our Eagles fans are some of the most knowledgeable, dedicated, passionate, supportive, well-traveled and loud fans around the league. If you don’t believe me go back and recap a few road games like the Chargers, Rams, Cowboys and Giants. Our Eagle fans took over these stadiums, hotels and restaurants and help made our Eagles team feel like it was a home game. When our Eagle players analyzed the support and noise that they received when they were Home Away from Home, they all said how great that made them feel and how much they wanted to not let their fans down.

If you don’t think the Eagles fans can impact a game, just ask Eli Manning how the Eagles fans impacted their game results on their home field. Actually, you can see Eli press conference where he said it for himself. You don’t have to understand rocket science or analytics (for that matter) to understand that if players can’t hear each other on the field, things can go wrong.  One thing that I loved from the past game was that Eagle fans (as a whole) didn’t boo the team first half slow start. Even though the Eagle haters, doubters and analyzers thought they would, our Eagles fans stayed with them to the end. Win, Lose or Draw (sorry McNabb, it can end in a tie), our fans will always be as passionate, supportive and truthful as can be. We have the best fans, team and owner in the game.

Hello Philadelphia fans, this is your hump-day wake-up call. Falcon fans thought last week was the loudest legitimate stadium cheering they’ve ever heard. We want our home field advantage against the Vikings to be felt through every clap, chant and song! Why am I saying all of this when we have one of the best guy to do this below.  Analyze This!

Click it, Watch it, Feel it then get ready to Do it this Sunday!

Philadelphia Eagles – Believe it PhillyDilly

Our Philadelphia Eagles will be defending their Super Bowl opportunity against the Minnesota Vikings in the next chapter of a storybook season.  Whatever the book title you want to give it "From Good to Great, Next Man Up, We're All We Got – We're All We Need, the chapters are still being written game by game. Against the odds of enormous key injuries and the unbelieving of so many so-called NFL experts, the Philadelphia Eagles keep finding a way to win. When your offense, defense, and special teams lose their most impactful key players, people stepped up their doubts. Most doubts started at the beginning of the season when Owner Jeffrey Lurie went back to basics with his reorganization of leaders that started with starting with Howie Roseman. The next doubt then focused on 2nd year head coach Doug Pederson of whether he could guide their 2nd year franchise quarterback, make game time adjustments and keep a team together.

 

Say what you want about our Eagles coach Doug Peterson, he has his team where they should be. Because of so many injuries to key veterans, Doug Peterson has the young guys stepping up and playing very well. While so-called NFL reporting experts came out and said that "Doug Peterson is not a worthy candidate of being a head coach" his coaches and players have been proving the naysayers wrong all season. Our Eagles have won more games this year with more key player losses than any other team in the league. Doug Pederson halftime adjustments has been very good all season. One of his most notable adjustments came when it counted the most in Eagles playoff win versus the Falcons. You can believe what you want but believe me that Doug Pederson should be the NFL coach of the year.

 

 

 

While our Philadelphia Eagles may not have reached their Greatness yet, they have positively taken ownership of Doug Pederson (and the coaching staff) "Next Man Up" mentality. When you lose multiple Pro-Bowlers and All-Pro players on both sides of the ball, many of the young players have "Stepped in and Stepped Up" beyond what so many people in the national media could've ever believed. While the Eagles were still winning games after their All Pro QB Carson Wentz (who should be the NFL MVP) went down, the media disrespect really took onto a higher level. Actually, that was kind of okay because it unraveled the deeper inner core belief of what our Eagles team mentality is now of "We're All We Got – We're All We Need". Yes, it's the new version of "It's us against the world" 

 

The Philadelphia Eagles team couldn't have picked a better theme. This theme is something that the core group Eagles fans can and will identify with. This theme is the other part of our Philadelphia “Rocky – UnderDog” mindset. If you're a true 4 for 4 Philly fan, you know what I'm talking about. You had to have witness it the last time our Phillies, Sixers and Flyers made their championship runs. The euphoric fandemonium was felt not only throughout the city but in many other cities around the country. Philadelphia might be known as the city of Brotherly Love until competitive sports come into play. When competition happens, we shift to the "Rocky and UnderDog" mentality. Yo Eagles, you got this! Hey Eagles, the true fans that show up at home and to your road games got your back. Great and special times are ahead for this organization and the fans for many years to come.

 

You don't have to believe me because our Philadelphia Eagles believe that "We All We Got – We All We Need". This is not just a saying, it’s our Eagles new way of life

Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys

Tonight's Sunday football game will feature the Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys. This is one of football beat rivalry over the past 20 years and this has the making of what should provide a even game. Unfortunately because the Eagles come into this game with the better record people (including some Dallas fans) that the Eagles will win this game. Many non-Eagles supporters are giving the Eagles a automatic win because they believe that everything is falling into place because of the Cowboys injured players". 

Yes the Cowboy's have lost 3 key starting players that includes their running back,  offensive lineman and linebacker. Well guess what, the Eagles also lost the same key players at the same key positions. I think that makes it even except that Eagles lost their top cornerback early in the season too. Even though this cornerback will try to play today without being in gamed football shape, this game will be played in Texas – so once again we're even. 

But with all that being said, our Philadelphia Eagles and fans are not making excuses because our Eagles Soar above all that noise. When our Eagles men go down its Next Man Up. Both teams have suffered key injuries and both teams are playing with banged up players. Both teams have 53 men on their roster but one team is leading the division without making excuses. The Eagles have to play this game in a hostile environment, with field refs that seemed to have favor the home-team and after not having played football in almost 2 weeks. 

Make no excuses, the team that play better will win with what they have on the field. Make no mistake that the Eagles should win this game. Understand that when a key Eagles player goes down the Next Man Up rises to the occasion. That's what Eagles do!

Enjoy the short Eagles vs Dallas song

Philly Excites the NFL and Fans

The 2017 NFL draft event that was held in Philadelphia the City of Brotherly Love was as much historic as it was memorable. Whether you were the commissioner Roger Goodell or ex-Cowboys Drew Pearson, you felt and embraced the football fans of Philadelphia like never before. What was once skeptical in the minds of the sports media throughout the TV and radio networks was met with thousands of passionate Eagles fans. The three Day event is still being talked about by reporters, players, fans of every news source that they represent. If you weren't there to experience the excitement of each twist and turn of events, then I'm sorry that you couldn't be there. As of this day, I still catch myself pumping out the Philadelphia Eagles fight song at the thought of Westbrook and Dawkins speech.

It's a great time to be excited about Philadelphia sports, especially our Philadelphia Eagles. I think it's the first time in a long while that many Eagles fans have been this excited about an Philadelphia Eagles draft. We all knew that going into 2017 that we needed more production out of our offense and defense. Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas added a few key pieces for coach Doug Pederson around Carson Wentz. Then Howie and Joe gave coach Schwartz a little more defensive support. I think these guys had a real productive draft this year. They took a draft rebuilding idea from the past and implemented it beautifully. They were able to draft key productive talent not only in some areas of need but that actually fit the Eagles system. This new drafted and undrafted players class has the opportunity to impact all 3 major levels of our Eagles team.

Too many times we get caught up in the false environment of the NFL Combine and its numbers. The NFL Combine numbers are important but I think the numbers that these players produced on the field should never take back seat. The NFL Combine numbers can project some things. One thing for sure it cannot measure someone football IQ, mental toughness, willingness, dedication and their love of the game. These traits when added to physical talent is what allows a player to consistently produce solid results.  One example has been the discussion of the selection of Allen or Jones over Barnett. They believe the other two players may have presented a slightly better "NFL Combine test numbers". I honestly am not sure if Allen or Jones even fit the Eagles defensive system and scheme as well. If you're going by the numbers, I love what Barnett was able to produce on the field. His on the field production was as good as anyone's and better than most. When you put these lineman in the same game environment against similar top talent, all Barnett did was produce. The theme of the Eagles draft choices this year seemed to be about players that demonstrated high motor, high IQ that consistently produced at a high level.

 

             

The Eagles new line rotation of Fletcher Cox, Tim-Jernigan, Vinny Curry, Brandon Graham, Chris Long and Derek Barnett should be able to create enough QB pressure in a domino effect to help the linebackers and cornerbacks.  The Eagles have improved their defensive secondary through the draft with the selection of Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas. Sidney Jones without a doubt was considered  a 1st round pick while many had him rated as the top rated or #2 cornerback in the draft (based on production). Yes he will miss some game time with his injury. If players like Suggs and Jason Peters came back, I think the young 20yr old player Sidney Jones can recover as well. Sidney Jones is considered the lock-down cornerback that the Eagles haven't had in a long time. He's another baller that consistenly produces and isn't afraid of any challenge. Welcome to Philly Sidney and Rasul.

 

I believe that our offensive game just got a little better than last year with the draft selection of Mack Hollins. The amount of yards after the catch and touchdowns is something that you really need to recognize. The speed that he brings to our receiving core as a deep threat should be a welcomed benefit. Add that threat to what Alshon Jeffrey, Torrey Smith and Jordan Mathews brings will be something special to see.

 

My sleeper Eagles draft picks on offense are Donnel Pumphreys and Shelton Gibson. Gibson just may be one of the fastest and quickest wide receiver you'll want to see. The excitement that he brings may just remind you of an ex-Eagle  that now with Tampa. As far as Donnel Pumphrey goes, there simply wasn't a more productive college running back ever in college than him. Small but mighty, tough as nails that simply just run and scores.

  

 Are we excited about our Philadelphia Eagles finishing with more wins than last year while making the playoffs? We sure are because they're an improved team across the board from last year. Are they done with tweaking their roster, I don't think so. Are exciting times ahead, you better believe it. They're finally building a winning team the right way. Right now every Philadelphia fan of all sports should be excited. There's nothing like Eagles playoffs except for when all four teams are competing in the playoffs during the same calendar year. That excitement started with the Eagles draft and now our Sixers, Flyers and Phillies are next. Our Sixers could end up with 2 picks in the top 10 selections on June 22. Then two days later our Flyers will be selecting the 2nd overall lottery draft pick. Eagles you're still front and center, so keep it going in the right direction this off season…

 

Fly Eagles Fly!

Adding new offensive weapons that have a similar mindset, heart and desires like Wentz would be amazing.
