  1. I understand that they can somehow put his name on some sort of "no buy" list, but I can't figure out how they could police the entrance ways to prevent some random guy (him) fifteen years from now walking into the stadium with a ticket that someone else purchased for him. There's just now way those temp employees who scan tickets will be keeping their eyes out for a specific face from fifteen years ago (now).

    Week 6 Open Discussion.

    Primary focus will be on the Redskins and Cowboys games. Obviously want them to lose. Will watch a lot of the Bengals/Steelers game (because it's on opposite the Redskins game) and root for the Bengals. Rooting for the Bucs to lose, the Rams to lose, the Bears to lose, the Vikings to lose...and at night for the Chiefs to beat the Patriots. Beyond that, eh, I guess the Browns winning would be nice. Will be rooting for the Packers tomorrow night even though that's not the "correct" way to root...for potential future financial interests only. Suicide Pool pick.
  4. Out of curiosity, did you sit in section 214 after mistakenly sitting in section 213 initially?

    Week 4: Chiefs @ Broncos

    That's actually the real term for it. But so many people never seemed to get the "ladder" part of it right and "lateral" sort of became the common phrasing. It's wrong though.

    There was one guy on the Cowboys board who actually knew what he was talking about, and he went into nice detail as to why it was clearly a catch.

    But the Falcons and Vikings were in the NFL in 1966, the season the Super Bowl began, so fans of those teams have a legitimate argument. Texans fans, not so much.

    Week 3: Jets @ Browns

    Actually, if they were that bad, I'd probably like it if they sprinkled in a couple wins against the Cowboys and Redskins along the way.

    Not even close to being the case. Collinsworth offers actual insight. Gruden just praises everybody, which gets tiresome to listen to pretty quickly.

    Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears

    It was embarrassing that the announcers didn't seem to understand that. It was also embarrassing that the fans booed, as though they thought they deserved something better than having the ball be spotted at the one yard line. Knowing basic rules isn't that hard.

    The only game I really care about is the Eagles/Bucs game.

    DALLASS.....

    You forgot a healthy MLB. That's what really killed him last year. Sean Lee being out.

    I gotta say this in defense of Carr. He does throw some of the prettiest interception balls I've ever seen. You really can see the arm talent in those throws.

    Week 1: Jets @ Lions

    I normally hate rooting for the Jets, but for the Eagles sake, I think it's best to root for an AFC team whenever they're playing an NFC team. You never know how seedings and tie breaks will work out. Better for us to have the Lions lose.

    He's definitely a passionate guy.

    I read that entire thread a few months ago. Enjoyed looking at that site from time to time during the season. I actually found it when the Eagles and Dolphins were practicing together in training camp last summer. Thought it would be interesting to get the take from the other team's fans. I distinctly remember one fan complaining about the Dolphins problems with the Eagles (I think it was during the practices but it could have been during the game itself) because, according to him, the Eagles were a trash team. Several Miami fans quickly came to the Eagles defense by arguing that they were in fact a decent team.

    Gene Steratore Retires

    A few years ago, Peter King did an in depth behind-the-scenes article about an NFL referee's work week. It was an excellent read. It was Steratore's crew they followed. I've been a fan of his since. Very good ref. Was happy when I learned he was going to handle Super Bowl LII.

    When the Eagles were chasing a playoff berth in 2008...

    The Eagles needed the Bucs to lose to the Raiders, and have ONE of the other two games go their way. It was the Bears losing to the Texans or the Vikings losing to the Giants. They had the option of showing either game. They were both equally important. It just so happened that the one that was televised didn't go the way we needed but the other one did. I was a the stadium that afternoon, and both games (well, all three when you include the Bucs game) were shown on the screens on the concourse.
  22. Kellen Winslow (the father) sat directly across the aisle from me at an Eagles-Bucs game a few years ago when he son played for the Bucs. He was pretty quiet. Said hello to the fans who recognized him but pretty much kept a low profile.

    Andrew Luck

    I don't agree with that at all. I thought he looked fantastic. They're a below average team without him, yet he took a couple of those teams to the playoffs.
