Yesterday's win was impressive. Being down 18 points had me wondering if our hopes for the Eagles' season were going to be crushed much like the Phillies. The Eagles are defending NFC Champs and they don't allow teams to just roll over them. With the exception of the first drive of the game where K.C. manhandled the lackadaisical birds, the defense played pretty damn well. Sheldon Brown, Brian Dawkins, and Mike Paterson were getting their name called over and over. With Paul Grasmanis being lost for the season, Mike Paterson looks like he can step it up. The defense really strapped it on after a slow start and allowed Donovan and company to do their thing and get the birds back in it.
Andy Reid showed he doesn't care if they have to abandon the run by calling 50 passing plays to 13 run plays. Donovan played exceptional, minus his token 3 or 4 horrible throws to open guys, throwing for over 300 yards for the third straight week. L.J. Smith and Terrell Owens seemed to be wide open every other play.
It started out real ugly but the horrible start made the great finish that much more enjoyable. They take a 3-1 record into Dallas, their final game before a bye. 4-1 with a bye sounds good to me.
Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.

The fan was later removed from his seat and probably told to act like a decent human.
