Random YouTube: Hulk Hogan Defends WWF Title in 1984 at the Spectrum

I remember my friend Brady used to read WWF message boards when we were younger.  I thought the kid wasn't exactly playing with a full deck.  I never really got into the WWF, but this video is a gem.  Not only does it take place at the Spectrum in 1984 but it displays how amazing the original WWF used to be with the Hulk defending the championship against Greg "The Hammer" Valentine.

Malcolm Jenkins says Eagles are the 'team to beat' in NFC East

Malcolm Jenkins says Eagles are the 'team to beat' in NFC East

The NFC East isn't exactly a powerhouse this season. The New York Giants look flat out bad. The Washington Redskins aren't a whole lot better. And the Dallas Cowboys got their butts kicked in week two.

So Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins didn't exactly go out on a limb when he said the Birds are the team to beat in the East this season after two weeks.

Jenkins sat down for a weekly chat with CBS Philly's Joe Santoliquito about the Eagles' defense looking better in their week two loss to the Kansas City Chiefs than they did in their week one victory over the Redskins.

“The communication was far better [against Kansas City] than it was the first week. For the most part, we had two passes that got away. The one from [Travis] Kelce involving in the beginning of the game and the one against Jalen [Mills] later in the game [on Chris Conley’s 35-yard reception with 4:42 left to play].

The Birds' defense held their own with a number of deeper roster guys in the secondary putting in impressive efforts in fill-in rolls for players who went down with injuries. 

The standings in the East are bunched after just two weeks but the Eagles host the Giants in Philly's home opener on Sunday. Jenkins likes the way things looks right about now.

“We’re home this week and we have the home opener, we have plenty of motivation this week with the New York Giants coming to our place,” Jenkins said. “If you ask me, I would say that we’re the team to beat [in the NFC East]. We obviously we have to prove that. I have confidence in these guys.”

I think Philly fans always appreciate when any player in town goes the Full Jimmy Rollins. Let's just hope this Eagles team can back it up the way J-Roll and those Phillies did.
