  1. I can tell you the Bucs and Jags aren't rivals, and based on your poor grammar you aren't the Baltimore Sun sports columnist (who incidentally I've heard say disparaging things about Philadelphia sports fans).
  2. Sean Payton became the first person associated with the NFL to be announced as having tested positive for the coronavirus. On a positive note, it appears he's only suffering from mild symptoms. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/28927492/saints-sean-payton-says-tested-positive-coronavirus There's no word as to whether Payton has put a bounty on the person or people who gave him the coronavirus.

    DeAndre Hopkins Traded to Arizona!

    Now that Nate Sudfeld is signed, the Eagles need to trade him and a 2nd round pick to Houston for Watson. Watson can throw to the Eagles receivers when Wentz gets hurt! 😄

    DeAndre Hopkins Traded to Arizona!

    O'Brien is beyond Chip Kelly territory. Texans fans should be terrified.

    SUPER BOWL LIV: 49ers vs. Chiefs

    That touchdown run was similar to the game-winning TD run by John Riggins against the Dolphins in Super Bowl 17.

    SUPER BOWL LIV: 49ers vs. Chiefs

    If you're talking about Super Bowl 39, that was on McNabb not being in good enough physical shape and getting too excited/caught up in the moment, not on Reid. And I say that as someone who is not even an Andy Reid fan (due to him continually coming up short in the NFCCG during his Eagles tenure, which cost the Eagles Super Bowl appearances, which in turn cost the Eagles possible Super Bowl wins).

    SUPER BOWL LIV: 49ers vs. Chiefs

    It seems obvious the 49ers' running game and pass rush pressure are the differences in this game so far. Also, the Chiefs are letting 49ers receivers get wide open frequently.

    Your top 3 worst Super Bowls since 2000

    Super Bowl 40 (Pittsburgh/Seattle) was a sloppy, horribly played and officiated game.

    Kevin Stefanski new Browns HC

    I hope Stefanski, a Philadelphia area native (his father Ed was the general manager for both the 76ers and Nets), does well, but for most of the last 20 years the Browns job has been the worst head coaching job in the NFL.

    Bill Cowher — HOF?

    IMO, Bill Cowher was a good coach, but not a Hall of Famer. In all honesty his career accomplishments are very, very similar to his successor in Pittsburgh, Mike Tomlin (another good but not great coach), who is usually perceived as being an inferior coach to Cowher. I'd be more impressed if Cowher took over another team and made them a regular playoff contender and/or took them to a Super Bowl appearance. Tony Dungy only ever appeared in (and won) one Super Bowl as a head coach, but at least he turned around a Buccaneers team that had been terrible for most of the 15 years prior to him becoming head coach, in addition to winning a Super Bowl with the Colts. Dan Reeves never won a Super Bowl, but he led the Broncos to three Super Bowl appearances and the Falcons to one Super Bowl appearance (and also turned around the New York Giants and took them to the playoffs after Ray Handley's disastrous two year tenure as the Giants' head coach). Cowher did improve the Steelers when he took over, but the franchise was already on solid ground, having made the playoffs in 1989 and finishing with a winning record in 1990, not long before Cowher took over in 1992. Cowher, much like Andy Reid, was a master at losing conference championship games at home, losing such games in Pittsburgh in 1994, 1997, 2001, and 2004. His only home AFC Championship Game win was by a 20-16 margin against a 9-7 Colts team after the 1995 season. Additionally, besides 2005, Cowher NEVER won a road playoff game in the rest of his NFL head coaching career.

    AFC Divisional: Titans @ Ravens

    Here's a somewhat related thought that directly relates to the Eagles: The Eagles have never lost to the New York Jets in the regular season. The Jets used to be nicknamed the Titans. The Eagles have also never lost to a team based in Houston, which includes the Houston Oilers. The Oilers eventually moved to Tennessee and became the Titans, a team the Eagles HAVE lost to. The bottom line is if teams have trouble beating the Eagles, they need to change their name to the Titans, and need to never change their name from the Titans. LOL. One other thing related to your original comment - the Chiefs' franchise last game played as the Dallas Texans was played against a team based in Houston (1962 AFL Championship Game).

    AFC Divisional: Titans @ Ravens

    In 2004 the Eagles largely didn't have to worry because the entire NFC excluding the Eagles sucked that year.

    Matt Rhule new Panthers HC

    Very pleased that Matt Rhule has achieved his dream of being an NFL head coach, though I have mixed feelings about him going to Carolina (for his sake I would have liked for him to go to the Giants, the native New Yorker's favorite team as a kid, but for my sake I'm glad I don't have to root against twice per season). On a related note, I'd love to see the two annual Carolina/Tampa Bay game broadcasts on TV when the announcers mention both teams are led by former Temple football head coaches, Panthers coach Matt Rhule (2013-2016; he was also an assistant coach at Temple from 2006-2011) and Bucs head coach Bruce Arians (1983-1988).

    Historic sites related to the NFL

    Some sites: 1) Obviously the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH (I was there in 2005, and it was well worth the visit). 2) The house where Eagles founder and former NFL commissioner Bert Bell lived in Narberth while he was commissioner in the late 1940s and 1950s. 3) Every site where the Eagles played home games: *Baker Bowl, 1933-1935 - also the Phillies' long-time home ballpark (1895-mid 1938), at the block bounded by 15th Street, Lehigh Avenue, Broad Street, and Huntingdon Street in north Philadelphia *Municipal Stadium (aka Sesquicentennial Stadium and JFK Stadium), 1936-1939 - was located where the Wells Fargo Center now stands *Shibe Park/Connie Mack Stadium, most of 1940-1957 period - also the A's (1909-1954) and Phillies' (mid 1938-1970) long-time home ballpark, at the block bounded by 21st Street, Somerset Street, 20th Street, and Lehigh Avenue in north Philadelphia; the Deliverance Evangelical Church now stands on the site *Franklin Field, 1958-1970 - used for 100+ years for Penn football and the Penn Relays, it still stands *Veterans Stadium, 1971-2002 - also the Phillies' home stadium (1971-2003), serves as a parking lot at the stadium complex, primarily for Citizens Bank Park 4) Original Yankee Stadium site, location of first sudden death overtime game in pro football history and Chuck Bednarik's famed tackle of Frank Gifford 5) Kezar Stadium in San Francisco, 49ers home stadium from 1946 to 1970, not far from famed Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, still stands as a downsized venue used for soccer and high school football 6) Dallas Love Field Airport - the site where Lamar Hunt (AFL founder and Kansas City Chiefs owner) and Tex Schramm (Dallas Cowboys general manager and then-NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle confidant) met to initially discuss the possibility of a merger between the AFL and NFL

    Most hated teams

    For me personally: 1) Steelers (they are in their own category; I lived in western Pennsylvania for almost 2 1/2 years and learned to despise all Pittsburgh teams) --------------------------- 2T) Cowboys (sometimes I hate the Cowboys more and sometimes I hate the Redskins more) 2T) Redskins (this has a lot to do with living in the DC area, though I started hating the Deadskins in the early 2000s before I moved to the DC area) ---------------------------- 4T) Packers (media darlings that are overhyped; would love to see them go back to their 1980s failures) 4T) Saints (also media darlings that are overhyped, plus their fans whine too much; would love to see them go back to their pre-2006 and especially pre-1987 failures) ---------------------------- 6) Ravens (their fans like to talk big, but I can't respect a fanbase that has almost no fans outside of their home state and/or more than 50 miles from their home city) 7) Chiefs (got very turned off by Andy Reid after about 2007 when he was with the Eagles and want to continue to see him fall short) Strangely enough, I respect rather than hate the Giants, though I have dealt with a couple of a-clown Giants fans in my past.
