(or Quick! Everyone Panic!  Kolb fails to win Super Bowl in week 1.) There’s no getting around it: Kolb was absolutely dreadful on Sunday. 5 for 10 passing, 24 yards, 2 sacks, and a 56.3 rating. Not only were the stats bad, he looked jittery and confused in the pocket, something that we were told [...]

Reid and McNabb: More fool’s gold for Philly fans

That poor pooch had a rough couple of weeks as he’d already been screwed repeatedly by McNabb in previous quarters. Every Eagles fan [...]

Favor: The Gift and The Curse

Eagles Fan Looks Back at Texas Stadium Memories

Posted December 19, 2008 by kevinrmcguire

As an Eagles fan it is somewhat bittersweet to see the Cowboys play their final home game in Texas Stadium on Saturday. There were some good Eagles memories in the stadium, and there were bad ones as well (more bad ones than good I’d say). While I feel that there is no place I would [...]
