  1. I've done the green legion tailgate a few times, it's really good IMO. All you can eat and drink for $40, and they have some craft beers. And the food is always themed based off the opponent. For example went to the redskins game and they did a pig roast. At the Dolphins game they had mahi mahi tacos. And then they have other stuff like wings. Soft Pretzels etc...

    Disgruntled Nick Foles skips OTAs (ORIG POST: 6/1/2016)

    Lol no it's not true. That is your opinion and frankly it's not based in reality. When have the Philly fans ever adored that type of personality??? we currently have a head coach with an "aw shucks" personality, and the fans make fun of him because of it. Wait, you're telling me that some fans didn't like a guy who had tortured and killed a bunch of dogs??? And please all it took was a couple of touchdown passes early in the 2010 season for fans to get on the Vick train.

    Who's denying anything? Yes, 2013 for Foles clearly ended up being lightning in a bottle. Just like 2010 was lightning in the bottle for Vick. My point was in regard to your "reasoning" as to why Foles became a fan favorite. Any 24 year old QB having the season he had would have instantly become a fan favorite. Your "reasoning" that Foles because he was a "lilly white choir boy" is absurd on so many levels I don't even know where to start.

    Hmmm that's interesting. I thought fans liked Foles after the 2013 season because he was a 24 year old QB who lead this team to an 8-2 record in 10 games while throwing for 27 tds and 2 interceptions and putting up the 3rd highest QB rating in the history of the NFL. But now I see, it was because he was a "lilly-white choir boy". And clearly, history shows that Eagles' fans are drawn to that type of personality. I mean, just look at guys like Dawkins, Trotter, Westbrook, Runyan, Reggie White, Wes Hopkins, Jerome Brown, Andrew Waters, Jason Peters....that's a bunch of lilly white choir boys if I ever saw one............

    I think here are two of Foles' biggest problems: 1) He hasn't corrected his inconsistent mechanics. Everything starts with the feet for a QB, and you can only get away with inconsistent footwork for so long before it catches up to you. 2) His game relies too much on the big play. You can't always rely on getting a 20-yard, 30-yard, or 40+ yard passing play on a drive. You have to be able to move the football down the field methodically with the short and intermediate game as well, and he has struggled to do this the past two years.

    Bad move on his part. He's in no position to be skipping any sort of workouts.

    I'd like those ten minutes of my life back. I love how the guy talks about how had Carr thrown the ball inside, it would have been broken up, but since he threw it to the corner is was a TD.....as he's showing the play unfold and the ball was thrown inside forcing Holmes to have to wait for the ball to get to him.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Thank you for the clarification regarding the cut down to 10. I was wrong there. Monk was top 10 in receiving yards 3 times in his career, and was top 10 in tds only once. He was a stat accumulator, not a dominant force. I guarantee it will not take 10+ years for Owens to make the hall of fame. Wont take close to that long. Maybe it might take more than 2 more years, but certainly not more than 5.

    Again, name me one player who was a hall of fame finalist in his first year of eligibility and then had to wait 10+ years to get in. Monk waited 8, and his career isn't on par with Owens. There is no "cut down to 10". They get it down to 15 finalists and then they vote on who gets in from that group. And Owens was one of the 15 finalists. He will be in the HOF by 2018 at the latest.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    You realize Owens played wide receiver, and not offensive lineman, right? So if you're saying he never had speed to begin with, then that means by the time he got to his mid 30s, he'd be even slower than he was in his early 20s, and just not able to play anymore because of how slow he was. Yet even in his mid to late 30s, we see him catching deep bombs for touchdowns and taking slant routes to the house. So your theory doesn't match up with what happened in reality. And lol at it taking 10+ years for TO to make the HOF. He was a finalist in his first year. Guys who were finalists in their first year don't wait 10+ years to get in. For example, Marvin Harrison was a finalist in 2014, and got in 2016. Orlando Pace was a finalist in 2015, and got in 2016. Go ahead and find one player who was a finalist in their first year of eligibility who then had to wait 10+ years to get in.

    TO will be in the hall of fame within two years, if not next year. The only reason he wasn't a first ballot hall of famer is because of his attitude issues.

    LOLoL yeah Owens drop in numbers when he turned 36 has nothin to do with age....sure..... On one hand you say he has no talent, and not the other hand you expect him to continue to put up 1200+ yards seasons as he nears 40....something only extremely talented players can do.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    While 34 years old and playing for Dallas, TO had his 3rd most yards and 2nd most touchdowns in a season in his career. Yeah his numbers really declined all right........ Wait wait wait, you're telling me that at the age of 36 years old, his numbers plummeted in Buffalo? Clearly this means that once the only system he can have success in is the WCO and that he needs his coaches to scheme him open, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he was 36 years old, right? Randy Moss' numbers plummeted when he went to San Fran. 430 yards and 2 tds. Half of TOs production in Buffalo. This means he was a product of the system he played in then, right? Have you seen Isaac Bruces' numbers when he went to San Fran at age 36? Identical to TO's in Buffalo. He must have no talent too!!! And it's weird, Marvin Harrison didn't even switch teams, yet at age 36 in Indy, his numbers took a dive as well. That no talent fool! And Chris Carter, what happened to ye? At age 36 in Minnesota (again not even switching teams) his numbers dropped down to 871 yards and 6 tds. How could this be??? Hmmmmmm I wonder I wonder, do we think age played a role in TO not being able to put up a 1200 yard 13 TD season in Buffalo at the age of 36?
  15. Eh, if the reporter was just trying to get a good quote of Chip talking about the legacy of San Fran, or the fans, or whatnot, he could have just asked him a question about the city, or about the team. By asking Chip to compare the two, I think he was looking for something where he could make a catchy gotcha headline for click bait. Chip doesn't fall for stuff like that. And frankly chip just doesn't like talking about non football related stuff during press conferences. He'll break down a play, he'll explain what happened on a play, explain how it was set up, or explain what went wrong, probably in more detail than almost any other coach. But he doesn't like talking about stuff that doesn't relate to what actually happens on the field. And so when he gets questions like that, he responds with a sarcastic answer.
