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.

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.
