Philadelphia Eagles Time Has Come

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles for winning this year's Super Bowl. While that may sound like music to our ears and maybe food for thought, but you know it feels good if you're a Philadelphia fan. That's something I've been saying year-after-year for almost 50 years to myself, family and friends. Well the Eagles winning the Super-Bowl statement isn't 100% true yet, the Eagles are positioning themselves to make multiple Super Bowl runs for quite a few years to come. I've been telling my sons for a couple of years now that the seasons from 2018 to 2023 may be one of the greatest sports eras in the history of Philadelphia sports. There's no better way to start the next great sports era run in Philadelphia sports than with the run that our Eagles have been on. One reason why I joke with my sons about our Philly teams winning championships over the next five years is because my wife and I are moving and it would be just our luck. I only say that because I had to watch our Philadelphia 76ers win the “83” championship after I moved out west in trying to further my basketball career. I watched our Philly teams make playoffs runs from a far distance.


Trying to get a real sense or pulse of Philadelphia through the national news media from out west was very difficult. Thankfully my mother did an awesome job of making me feel the heartbeat of Philly from the hundreds of dollars in phone bills. But that's okay because I was here when our Phillies gave us all some good times during the “08” season by shocking the world with a World Series championship and a parade that everyone will remember. This year the Philadelphia Eagles head push their fans passion button with such a determined season and now I'm raise the roof with a 2018 Super Bowl parents just take a night time drive around Philly and see places like Boathouse-Row, Wells Fargo Center showcasing Eagles green. Companies have gotten in on the excitement by allowing employees to wear their Eagles apparel to work. I have seen Eagle green face paintings on a numerous people during their normal commute to work. If you're paying attention to the local Philadelphia radio stations like WIP 94.1, The Fanatic 97.5 and local TV channels, the “Tried -True and Thru” real Philly fans are being heard everywhere. I firmly believe that green passion of Eagles nation has spread throughout this country.

If you ever heard anyone that scoffs, laughs or interject the phrase “Negadelphia” into a sentence towards a Philly fan, chances are they’re not a Philly fan. Those people are most likely wanna-be Philly fans that's been sitting on the fence. True Philly fans are more than just passionate people. Philly fans are knowledgeable, supporting and no-nonsense too. Yes, you can wear and root and show support for your team in Philly as long as you don't disrespect whatever is Philly around you. The Eagles are expecting true Eagle fans to tilt a neutral Super Bowl site into Eagles country, and I'm pretty sure these fans will do their best. If you know the history of the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, then you know it's just the Eagles versus the football World. The Philadelphia Eagles and fans are ready for the Super Bowl limelight to shock the world (not just this year), but a few more years to come. Some of the best years of Philly sports is just beginning again. You can see the young Sixers and Flyers are positioning themselves for a playoff run. The Phillies might be another year way but I can see a year when all four Philly teams will be winning national titles in the same year.

Yo Philly, #FlyEaglesFly

Underdog Eagles FlyEaglesFly

The Philadelphia Eagles and their fans have been waiting for this day way too long. Most questions will be answered later tonight as to who has the better defense, and just maybe who rightfully  has the best team. What will not be questioned is how relentless, loud and intense the Philadelphia fan base can be. No matter what local media outlet you choose, you can see and almost feel the enthusiasm and intensity around the tri-state area. From the schools with young kids to the homes of senior citizens, the Eagles fight song has been repeatedly heard loud and clear. The Eagles kickoff party started 6 a.m. Friday morning at South Philly Chickie's and Pete's. Then XFINITY Live took the party from 5pm to almost 2 a.m. into the night. After the night party fell close to 2 a.m., the Eagles Twitter and Facebook groups took over and it’s been ongoing ever since. Last night so many Eagle fans were very active   within their Eagle Facebook fan groups.   From about 2 a.m. to at least 5:30 a.m. they all were posting one the main theme:  "I can't sleep, I can't wait, come on Eagles let's do this. I only know this because I too was up watching all the eagle chatter since 2 a.m. even though I had to be at work at 6 a.m. The old adage saying of "let sleeping dogs lie" won't apply to the Philadelphia Eagles and their fan-base   this week. Thank-you football world waking up the dogs, "Underdogs" that is!


While many Eagle fans have already heard how they won't really affect the game, the Eagles football team has been dealing with their disrespectful media gestures too. Even though the Eagles kept finding ways to win while losing key starters along the way the loss of respect was louder than ever. After each game after the loss of QB Carson Wentz provided the Eagles not the opportunity to win but rather the opportunity to be underdogs, according to so called football people. The Eagles are the number one ranked defensive team in allowing the least amount of points in their home stadium. Even though many say that defense wins championships, apparently, it's still not enough as they've been titled the "Underdog" in both playoff games. Thank you, Vegas and others, for wanting the Eagles to be the NFL "Underdog Hero" rather than Cinderella.



As we all watch our Eagles play today, I have a couple things for everyone to remember.  much like I was telling everyone last week Nick Foles doesn't have to play a perfect game. Everybody wants to remember Nick Foles for having the perfect game in that one special year that he had with the Eagles. As long as he keeps his QB rating between 90 and 100, the Eagles will be just fine. Nick Foles has a not-so-good game like the one against the Raiders he normally plays well the next 3 games the Eagles have the better run game and offensive line if you're of the mindset the defense wins championships then we could be in for a good time these are the top two ranked defenses but remember once again that are Eagles defense give up the least amount of points at home (13 pts.). Assuming that all three phases of Eagles football (offense, defense, special teams) actions are accountable on the field, our Eagles will be in a great position. As long as the Eagles keep away from turnovers and penalties, the Eagles will win this game.


The Eagles would definitely appreciate all the noise. I'm not sure if the Vikings will appreciate all the noise, but I'm sure our Eagle players will. The Lincoln Financial Field should be rocking at a feverish pitch from start to end somehow I think the home field fans will find a way to raise the noise roof to another level we all knew how long was tonight game and crowd is going to be epic but wait until we take it all in doors at the Dome 



Eagles 20 – Vikings 13

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!
