What Would Buddy Do?
We are now officially one (1) Rocky Bernard KillShot ™ away from the Kevin Kolb era

sorry there alex smith
With Donovan McNabb doubtful, it looks like A.J. Feeley is the man for Sunday. Hopefully Adam Joshua has another big game in him, as the Eagles have a tough Nerdbirds team in town.

Also, let us all take a moment to reflect on the fact that quarterbacks do take shots, the Seattle defense can get to the quarterback, and we might be one big lick away from the start of the Kevin Kolb era. For the record, Seattle is not above the occasional KillShot ™. Alex Smith hasn’t been right since.

High drama indeed.

A 17-text-message affair
Posted on November 30th, 2007 at 7:20 pm by Cheesesteak Hoagie

Landed from the UK about two hours ago. The mobile phone doesn’t work overseas, and I hadn’t checked messages.

I had 17 text messages waiting for me. Every single one of them was from Sunday night.

I think that says a lot in a lot of different dimensions. For now I’ll try not to focus on the part where people only get in touch with me when the Eagles are playing well and say that the game must have been one entertaining TV show.

The cruelty of the mandatory mid-week press conference

At a certain point, one just starts to feel pity* for Donovan McNabb.

League rules require that he sit for a weekly press conference with the local (and occasionally national) blathermonkeys. Most of these affairs are pretty boring (I watch all of them; so what of it?), save for the occasional Stasi interrogation moments where they try to bamboozle him into saying something headline-worthy (where headline-worthy equals (a) throwing his receivers under the bus, (b) absorbing anything less than complete responsibility for the disappointment of all Eagles fans, or (c) anything about a certain former wide receiver).

Having watched so many of these things, I have to say that I’m impressed with his patience up there every week. It’s a testament to the guy’s professionalism that he manages to get through these things without rolling his eyes at every other question and/ or chucking a stapler at the blathermonkeys.

All of which makes his performance up there yesterday all the more disheartening.

We finally have a legit quarterback controversy

adam joshua made it real on sunday
Blathermonkeys of America (and specifically Philadelphia) rejoice: we finally have a legitimate quarterback controversy in the 2-1-5!

I’d been appropriately dismissive of the Kevin Kolb chatter throughout the season. Said chatter wasn’t actually about Kolb, it was more about “The Bright Shiny Object That Isn’t Named Donovan McNabb.” Add in that Dunavin is to the Philly papers what Britney Spears is to US Weekly — if you want to sell papers, put her on the cover, even if she didn’t do anything this week — and you had a lot of hot air about the Birds’ starting quarterback, and not very much substance.

That mos def changed Sunday.
