It’s okay to call Eagles “Boy Dogs” again…

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog It’s okay to call Eagles “Boy Dogs” again… We had a regular reader and occasional commentator here back in the day, her name was Lana from Valdosta, Georgia. She was one of the two regular female fans who hung round these parts. The other was French Lady Fan, who hailed from Northern Italy. Lana was proud of her local high school team—the Valdosta Wildcats, arguably the winningest high school team in amateur football history. Lana coined the phrase “Stay on Football!” whenever anyone here (including myself) inquired about her social status as an...

Minny Magic to meet Philly Dilly Sorcery…and a look at Falcons’ side of loss to Eagles

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog Minny Magic to meet Philly Dilly Sorcery…and a look at Falcons’ side of loss to Eagles Welp, throw away the scouting report on Drew Brees and the Saints…Moose and Squirrel (Case Keenum and Stefon Diggs) are coming to town after all. In Minnesota they are celebrating a “miracle win”…in New Orleans they are celebrating anyway—after all, it’s New Orleans!—but they are playing the blues for a game they let get away. In other words, did Minnesota win the game?—or did the Saints blow it? They’re having a similar debate in Atlanta today. Yeah,...

Let’s do this….Eagles take on Falcons in title game

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog Let’s do this….Eagles take on Falcons in title game It’s been 9 years since the Philadelphia Eagles won a playoff game. That’s the invisible hurdle to leap today. The Atlanta Falcons are the tangible obstacle. On the injury front, defensive end Brandon Graham (ankle) will play this afternoon. Cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) are both listed as questionable. Left tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) practiced fully this week and is expected to go this afternoon. The weather? Brisk and a tad windy. Both teams will face falling temperatures with the mercury...

Eagles could use a Sky Pilot for playoff battle with Atlanta

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog Eagles could use a Sky Pilot for playoff battle with Atlanta Okay, it’s “just football”, not a real military battle with deadly consequences. But a sense of inspiration going into this big game is a help when you are 2.5 point underdogs in your own house. The Atlanta Falcons are relying upon a paid mercenary as their Sky Pilot, the professional wrassler Ric Flair, the original “60 Minute Man”. Flair has angered many of his Philly-area fans by shamelessly taking money from the Falcons in exchange for his motivational pre-game speech to be...

Ultimate love-hate conflict for an Eagles fan heading into playoffs

The Sports Daily > Eagles Eye Blog Ultimate love-hate conflict for an Eagles fan heading into playoffs As a life-long Eagles fan I will try to explain my love-hate complex which is numbing my expectations for the NFC Divisional showdown with Atlanta this Saturday: I love that we’re in this situation. Home game, week of rest on the Bye, Atlanta is very good but very beatable… I hate that we’re not at full strength personnel-wise. I hate that we’re without our best guys at LT, MLB, PR and QB. Last time we were in this type game, with all the...
