Bills’ Mafia is AFC Championship Bound

Josh Philo 1

The time has come in Philadelphia Fans have been clamoring for it. Media gasbags have been pontificating about it. And I have been dreading the reality of it— I Jalen Hurts, the 2nd round pick, is now the starting quarterback for the Eagles. His reward for “answering the call?” A […]

Rams Finally Get Revenge on Patriots

Whitney Dowds

The New England Patriots playoff chances took a major hit last night, thanks to the Rams wire to wire 24-3 victory. The Rams avenged their Super Bowl 53 loss at the hands of Bill Belichick, thanks to a huge night from their running game and bruising defense that never allowed […]

Don’t start Jalen Hurts. Please.

Josh Philo

Week 13 is here and the Eags are…breaking my heart! In a division that bodes a 36% win percentage (which is good for a TIE for 1st, by the way) the Eagles find themselves in the bottom half. I was holding onto hope that the football gods would shine down […]

The Heisman Hopeful List

Ladies and Gents, It’s time once again for another edition of “Eag Bowl”  and I couldn’t be more terrified. Philly hosts Seattle on Monday Night Football—a game that will feature the best and worst play at the quarterback position. On one end of the spectrum we have Russell Wilson, who […]

Eagles vs Browns Week 11

Josh Philo

Something is wrong in Philadelphia. No, not the vote count—-the team is not clicking and they need to right the ship. How? A shake up at quarterback ? Hand the play calls over to Deuce—or let Carson call his own plays?? The Eags need a spark!! How do you lose […]

USC vs Arizona Preview and Prediction

mattblively

If there is even a 1 percent chance of the USC Trojans making the College Football Playoff, it can only happen if they go undefeated and win the PAC 12 Championship. Trailing by two possessions last week to Arizona State with less than three minutes to play, the dream looked all but over. But a touchdown, onside kick and last minute score got the Trojans the dub.
