I'm wondering if Jerry Jones wishes he could return Terrell Owens today?

Boy that was a great Christmas present from our Birds.  Not sure how much posting we'll be doing today/this week.  Here are some links to help you get through Tuesday.

  • I'd just like to point out the fact that Terrell Owens got beat by the Eagles with both Donovan McNabb and Jeff Garcia at the helm.  Isn't it ironic, don't ya think?
  • The Inquirer has a nice photo album of yesterday's Christmas in Dallas.  Photo number 13 appears on the cover of today's Inquirer with the headline "Laughing all the way." [Inquirer]
  • Are people fearing the Eagles? From the Chicago Tribune, "The Eagles' surge is reminiscent of last year's December charge by
    the Pittsburgh Steelers, who won four straight to end their regular
    season before winning three road playoff games to get to the Super Bowl." [Chicago Tribune]
  • Terrell Owens just keeps talking.  He makes excuses for dropping balls and is embarrassed at the Cowgirls offense. [ESPN]
  • Not a single game involving a Philly team made Sports Illustrated's list of the top 25 games of the year. [Sports Illustrated]
  • Ryan Howard was in the running for AP male athlete of the year but a number of people finished in front of him, including Tiger Woods who won the honor. [NYTimes]

Michal Neuvirth pays tribute to Flyers greats Bernie Parent, Ron Hextall, Roman Cechmanek (!)

Michal Neuvirth pays tribute to Flyers greats Bernie Parent, Ron Hextall, Roman Cechmanek (!)

Michal Neuvirth has a new mask — let's hope it helps him stop more pucks.

Neuvirth will debut a new lid Saturday night, when the Flyers return to game action after their five-day bye week against the New Jersey Devils at the Wells Fargo Center.

The new mask pays tribute to Flyers goaltending greats, such as Bernie Parent (two Stanley Cups), Ron Hextall (current GM, 1987 Vezina Trophy and Conn Smythe Trophy winner) and Roman Cechmanek (why not?). Neuvirth will get the start tonight over Steve Mason.

In 13 games — 10 starts — this season, Neuvirth is 6-3 with a 3.30 goals-against average and .877 save percentage. Don't read too much into Neuvirth's start tonight, however.

The Flyers have a back-to-back beginning tonight, against New Jersey and the New York Islanders. The safe bet is to see Mason in net on Sunday night in Brooklyn.

But tonight, keep an eye out to see if Neuvirth can make a Cechmanek-esque head save.
