McNabb Weighs in on Eagles Signings and 'Problems'

McNabb Weighs in on Eagles Signings and 'Problems'

I guess we shouldn't be too surprised that Donovan McNabb has weighed in
on the Eagles' continued domination of the free agency news cycle. He
was likely asked point blank about it, so it's hard to condemn him for
commenting at all. But, at least in print, his comments are tinged with a
taste of bitterness, if not also some reality.

Per ProFootballTalk, a report by Clark Judge of CBS quotes McNabb as follows:

“I was there for 11 years, and the biggest thing we brought in was T.O.,” McNabb told Clark Judge of  “Now they’re getting the so-called ‘Dream Team.’  It’s amazing, but I look back on my career and what they’re doing now . . . that’s great; that’s excellent.  But you’re seeing another side. You’re seeing Andy [Reid] taking that chance.  It’s not just taking that chance on one guy.  They’re taking a chance on a bunch of guys.  And they’re spending money.  That’s amazing.  Ever since the lockout [ended], teams have to spend money.”

“[Y]ou’ve got to worry about DeSean [Jackson],” McNabb said.  “When he comes back are you going to give DeSean the ball or throw it to [Jeremy] Maclin?  Remember, you have to give LeSean McCoy the ball, too.  And then at the end you still have to pay Mike Vick.  They have more problems than people are looking at.”

Although I don't think we've "got to worry," McNabb's not necessarily wrong about there still being a lot that needs to go right with all the new pieces, and along with former defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, it's understandable for him to be having a WTF moment as the Eagles do something they never did during his time here. Hell, when was the last time we saw any team put together an off-season like this?

But the wiser choice probably would have been to give a non-answer. Some things haven't changed since Donny's time as an Eagle.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, there was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Eagles and Cowboys will face off on Sunday Night Football, when we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
