So they’ll probably be pretty good this year. What say you, Bill Simmons?
Oh shut the fuck up.
Oh God, so much sour grapes.
I wanna punch Simmons in the cock for trying to lay that reverse jinx bullshit on us. Fuck man.
That being said, I like our chances this year. I mean, it’s not the lock that some among us think, because I still think we have offensive line issues and Vick isn’t going to break every busted protection out for a 10+ yard run. But let’s say he gets some time to throw, and the d-line doesn’t shit the bed like they did last year… looking good for us.
At least he didn’t join the Cowboys.
no way they wont win? so andy reids finally gone?
I’d like to think we did America a huge solid by not letting him go to fucking Dallas.
I’m happy if they beat the Cowgirls twice.
If you do punch him in the cock, PLEASE film it.
Fuck now if they don’t win you know he’s taking full credit.
I won’t get within 50 yards before Tawmmy from Quinzee tackles me and keeps me from harming Boston’s national treasure of journalism.
Thanks for keeping him away from the fucking Jets. Although the idea of Rex trying to say “Nnamdi” is pretty funny.
And fuck the Cowboys.
P.S. Do whatever you want to Simmons. That fartknocker is a prep school asshat from CT.
No one denies this!
I can actually see him high-fiving House and J-Bug after making that tweet.
Thank god that’s over.
But what do the Emo Eagles fans think?????
Simmons can shampoo my crotch with his “nuggets”. Memo to Eagles fans, don’t bet the farm on Vick starting all 16 games. Oh and who is your backup? Vince Young.
Besides, Andy Reid is still your coach. Sooner or later – he will cost you.
Simmons dickrides his own team? Flame him.
Simmons dickrides someone else’s team? Flame him.
Ok. As long as we’re clear.
Fuck your nuggets, Sill Bimmons. FUCK. YOUR. NUGGETS.
On a brighter note…
Is there any sadder excuse for ownership than that of the Cincinnati Bengals?
Fuck sake, there’s their DC wondering out loud what the hell they’re going to do now that the team’s best DB, a guy he thought was coming back, is in East Texas and not Southern Ohio.
After letting the decent QB who could have net them draft picks or cash rot on the shelf as a matter of principle.
After not letting the equally idiotic Dan Snyder gift him TWO first round draft picks for the already declining Chad Ochostinko.
Cop One (observing Mike Brown): This may very well be the stupidest man alive.
Cop Two (observing Mike Brown): Perhaps we should shoot him.
/ht Ruthless People
It’s gotten to the point where I actually feel sorry for their assclown fans.
They should call it “Cincinutty.”
If I was one of those pussified Eagles fans who dropped them last year because they signed the “murderer” Vick, I’d choose this very moment to quit being a bitch. Whatever the Bill Simmonses of the world have to say, the Eagles should be fun to watch.
Not much press, but I think defensive end Jason Babin will help that team tremendously. Reid is fun to bash, but he has a good team every year and many times has been an inch away (not from the table). One of these times they may get there. The FA moves, their draft and who they’ve keep make them pretty formidable. Jussayin.
Plus his sons are fun guys…..
I can’t read Simmons so I don’t know if he has a sense of humor somewhere: is he being sarcastic in that tweet?
If I would have written the same thing it would have been sarcastic.
/Pardon my ignorance.
Timeout. I just thought of something: When to the liveblogs start? No HoF game, no Hard Knocks… I’m so confused/enraged I could shoot up a small Finnish island!
The front office makes great moves to bring in quality players. Unfortunately, actual in-game decision-making is done by Andy Fucking Reid, one of the worst game managers in the league.
DAMMIT DAMMIT GODDAMMIT
The Giants better sign Plax or else we have 2 more losses coming from these assholes this year :(
I would think if that were really the case (yeah, I’ve seen a few) they would lose a lot more games and he wouldn’t of lasted this long. Wade Phillips when he coached the Broncos, now there is a good case of poor game management skills.
But if you absololutely must hate Andy Reid, then you need it. Cheers.
Fuck Simmons with a butcher knife for believing that his jinxes and reverse jinxes actually have power to affect the events of everyday life. Utter narcissism.
Jason Babin? You mean the guy who rediscovered how to play DE properly at age 30 in a contract year? Yeah, I am sure he will produce huge. It’s not like the Eagles ever had him on their team before… Oh, wait.
Still, nothing beats the fact that Philly’s defensive coordinator was their offensive line coach last year. There is absolutely no way that could fail.
From what I gather Shatland has offices. I’d love to see a day or two in those lofty halls, watch Simmons bully his staff into seeing his way.
Nnamdi, Asante, Dominique…sounds kinda like finalists for a Diddy “Making the Band” episode.
Personally, I’m giddy with excitement for the day the camera pans to a sweating, confused Andy Reid trying to explain a play to Vince Young late in a playoff game. With no timeouts.
@Chris Henry’s Ghost: That was Norway, dammit! There’s a whole country in between those two!
Yes, I’m upset by the geographical mistake, not the taste of the joke.
/De gustibus non est disputandum
//Read yo’ Horace, fools
What’s the big deal? I say this to Philly fans every year and just watch the self doubt from catholic upbringings eat away with every incompletion thrown and misused timeout. It’s a wonderful sight. Plus, Vick’s not quite done with his modern morality play on hubris just yet.
Pirates fans actually feel pity for Bengals fans.
Andy Reid wasn’t sure whether to call a time out or throw a challenge flag on this tweet, so he did both.
I’m sure this dickhead’s acting career is really gonna catch fire in Phila-fucking-delphia. Not that they don’t have some delicious cheesesteak down there, mind you.
Or is it possible that he maybe, just maybe, made a football decision instead of pursuing a pipe dream?
I hate the fucking Eagles, man.
No way Simmons is this confident in his prediction if Nnamdi goes to NY because NO DAHKIE CAN BEAT OW-AH FOOTBALL BRUINS!
@Chad Henne: Or is it possible that he maybe, just maybe, made a football decision instead of pursuing a pipe dream?
Don’t speak to me of rational decision making in a time like this.
I am not a fan of the Eagles; I just think they have improved themselves more than the other teams in the division; I know that view does not fit in with irrational hatred (nothing wrong with that in sports).
HOWEVER; it appears that several of these teams, Eggles, Cowgirls, DaBeerz, etc. are ignoring their O-lines. There is still plenty of time, but with big money QBs getting HAMMERED and injured, you’d think teams would make it a bit more of a priority.
@Say Queensbridge; I know you have to hate and I don’t want to interfere with that; he is a one year wonder and I am thinking that in the Eggles system he can reproduce last year. You may be right to be skeptical since with his stats 12.5 sacks is an aberration, but sometimes people do learn.
The worst part of all of this is that the Eagles’ fan base doesn’t deserve Nnamdi. They don’t deserve any good players, nor do they deserve a winning football team. They’re a bunch of entitled assholes. When I heard that signing, that was the first thing that came to mind…
Wet me swee swome wittle twears, you cunt.
Ah, it looks like Iggles fans are making an early and vigorous push to wrest the title of most obnoxious fans in the NFL away from New England. I always knew with their natural talent and skills (racism, mastery of the battery, chanting, arrogance, predisposition for violence and regional accent), they could do it. Go, you beautiful savages!
Belichik must have known something that no one else knows to let him go to another team. Let’s see how this plays out down the road, guys.
You sure it’s not Sill Bimmons showing up in crafty disguise like clockwork wherever he gets mocked?
I hate it when Simmons tweets shit like this…Is it just a Boston thing to be a whiny mouth competitive asshole?
Well the Patriots play the Eagles 11/27, who are you rooting for:
D) Plague Outback
As an Eagles fan, I’m not sure what to think of this. Mostly I’m just enjoying the Jets and Cowboys fans’ angst.
Sure, he’s probably the best or second best corner in the League…but they already had two pretty good ones, at least on paper. Obviously, that’s no reason not to take Asomugha if you can hit him with some ether, shoot his security guard, and book, but a blockbuster contract against motivated bidders?
Fortunately, we long ago became acquainted with the limits of Andy Reid’s competence, sparing us from having to pretend puzzling moves are strokes of genius before we see the results. I can say with swaggering, cocksure partisan certainty that this will turn out better than the time he cut all the punt returners at the end of training camp:
And the arms race in the NFC East just got to megaton level…
Bluerat- actually it was my reaction to the comment by Vince Young that the Iggles are a “dream team”. Just thought some fuel needed to thrown on the fire. I grew up in the 60’s. They taught bomb throwing at my grade school in Mass. True story.
Belichik must have known something that no one else knows to let him go to another team.
Is that an implication that Nnamdi would have been a Pat but YOUAH COACH KNEW BETTAH? Arrogant fucking fuckity fuck.
I just saw an interview with Fat Al on the pats website. He said he is approaching this season as if he is a rookie. A new beginning he called it. He also said he was pumped that it was all football all the time in Pats camp and he loved it.
Oh Al, it feels so good, don’t stop. Yeah that’s it, a little faster, more saliva, that’s it. (courtesy tap)
Lord RevisIsle – forget that meeting. What happens if they do end up meeting in the Super Bowl? I’m afraid that ‘smug’ episode of South Park may actually become a reality. And Eagles fans will still boo their team as they come out of the tunnel…
Most of the time I can separate the fan base from the team, partly because I was an NFL fan before this damn internet thing and you could more easily ignore the fan base. I have not been to other stadiums, so that experience is not there. I’ll keep trying.
@Brutus – My comments were made independant of yours. I was mocking Simmons treatment of Belichick as some kind of football ninja/jedi. If he makes a trade its because he’s a genius with superhuman insight, if he doesn’t it’s also because he knew to pass.
@Spanky – The other side of the Belichick coin is the “he’ll always out plan another team, no matter how good they are” thought process that I hear on the B.S. Report any time they talk about the Patriots. No wan can out coach ow-ah coach. (as proven by their undefeated record for the last several seasons…. oh, wait…)
And just as I’m re-reading this tweet, fuck Bill Simmons. After his team gets one of the splashiest names on the market (Haynesworth) and was expected to sign another big name, no recent talent player (Chad Ocho Cinco) that the Patriots are “staying quiet” and waiting to make moves this off season so they can get good value later, and then tweets this asinine shit that I can ONLY interpret is his reaction to Philly fans being excited they just scored the marquee player of the off season and that it could help them on the field this year. I’m sure some of them went overboard and got annoying quickly (especially if they are calling themselves “The Dream Team”, but fuck it. Let them enjoy it for a day or two before breaking out the condescending reverse-jinx bullshit grade school shenanigans.
that should read”after his team gets… He said on his podcast that the Patriots are ‘staying quiet’…”
I can’t believe I care this much about this. I don’t give a fuck about the Eagles or the Patriots. I will now get off the internet. Good bye.
All I know is that right now is the perfect time to bet on either the Cowboys or the Giants to win that division. There is no way Andy Reid pulls that off, even with this much “talent”.
Sorry, UM, but no one in their right mind would put $ on the Redskins…
Nearly all the draft picks are signed? That can’t be right….
Bluerat – you seem to be drinking, or perhaps it drugs. That’s encouraged here, but try to not argue with yourself.
Just kidding dude.
OK, Stupid question- Why pick up a 3rd (although #1) shutdown corner?
I think the NFC east is a run first division and neither will support the run.
Phucking Philly Phans screaming next year for Vick, Favre and McRib’s ass.
Fuck you too Mike Golic, how’s that salad?
Rookies-, we got sick of the drama (holdouts, missed camp, agents in the news) while Jamarcus Fatass (and Ryan Leaf?) are still getting paychecks guaranteed.
Do something in the NFL to earn a living.
And be happy you are paying taxes for yesterday’s players who played a much less controlled violent game only to pave the way to your pussy ass non-contact practices.
Where’s your hair-gel?
Who the fuck follows Simmons tweets?
And i don’t wanna hear excuses about autofeeds or it was emailed or whatfuckingever. He’s a cunt. Don’t follow his twitter and don’t respond to his tweets and don’t broadcast them like they’re important.
If someone else mentions anything about a Simmons tweet a response along the lines of “yeah, only other cunts give a fuck what that cunt has to say” is more than enough.
I wish he’d have picked the Jets. Sanchez is more fail than Reid.
LOOKS LIKE THE PACKERS WILL PLAY THE EAGLES IN THE SUPERBOWL
As an Eagles fan, I can say with confidence that this season has 13 wins and a crushingly disappointing conference finals loss written all over it. But I’m not sure why we fans are being vilified for being excited about the signing of football Cliff Lee. Simmons is a dick, the Ealges will be good, and someone else will win the Super Bowl. I’m pretty sure all of that was true 72 hours ago as well.
Just filed to myself, Eagles sign another big-nam Free Agent, Simmons still a douche about it. [twitter.com]
Vick is still going to be dead by week 4 and Andy “Jolly Walrus” Reid is still the coach.
And the best team on paper ALWAYS wins the Super Bowl!
wasn’t Simmons deepthroating the Miami Heat at about this time a year ago?
I draft Simmons as my FF team’s tackling dummy/Vick herpes jock scrubber
Just like the Jets last year, the Vikings the year prior, Patriots/Chargers the two years prior, and the Redskins every year, the best team in august will win it all. It’s just too much talent in one team!
Having watched Nnamdi kill my damn team twice a year; he is great in run support, not afraid to stick his nose in there against a pulling guard and has very good read and react skills. Plus since you don’t have to double that side it frees up a safety for run support.
I know I’m supposed to hate; but the Eggles getting better, makes for better games in the NFC east (except, of course, for the Deadskins) and for better playoff games. But as some banned user said; FA signing don’t make the team, but it appears to me that in all areas they are helping themselves right now.
Also Cullen Jenkins is a solid player, also signed.
Where are the people (who can type) from Raider Nation?
Three in a row; get a life. Just heard all the Manning hype; MB must be creaming his vagina right now.
At what age do elite corners lose a step? Nnamdi is 30 and this will be his ninth season.
Deion Sanders played until age 38 for a total of fifteen seasons. Deion was never known as a hitter (understatement) so he didn’t really use up his body but I would say he lost a step in his ninth or tenth year.
Nnamdi has a good four years left; Bailey has lost a step but is better at reading routes and knows WRs better than when he was younger and they seem similar to me. I’m sure Nnandi Damndi won’t play out the entire contract.
This whole FA scramble has got me pumped, even though I should be downtown looking at women in jean shorts.
DeSean: please dont lump Simmons in with the rest of us Massholes. Even we are getting sick of him.
“They should call it “Cincinutty.””
Oh Chip; you rascal.
Are you saying that Bruce Gradkowski may not lead them to the promised land?
Had Bill Simmons been on Twitter in 2006:
THE FACKIN SAWX JUST INKED THAT NIP DICE-K TO A SIX YEAR DEAL GUARANTEEIN AWR DAWMINANCE! FACK YOU YANKEES! MARK IT DOWN–SIX WARLD SERIES TITLES!
No, he was too busy crucifying himself with Cleveland’s angst.
@shootme: “The worst part of all of this is that the Eagles’ fan base doesn’t deserve Nnamdi. They don’t deserve any good players, nor do they deserve a winning football team. ”
“ENTITLED”? Seriously? Are you new to the American sports landscape or are you just retarded?
