V is for Victory, Not Vicodin

That is what remained of a Terrell Owens jersey in the parking lot before the game on Sunday.   I don't think we really want to know what was done to it.

Yesterday was one of the most exciting games I've ever attended.  The atmosphere at the Linc was comparable, in my opinion, only to the NFC Championship game which I was at in 2004.  Eagles fans were loud all day long.  This game lived up to the hype and the Birds came away with a victory.  Let's all be thankful that Drew Bledsoe is not a good quarterback.

And let's not forget about number 5.  He stepped up in a big game.  The throw he made to Baskett while almost being in the grasp of a defender was pinpoint accurate 40 yards down the field.  Where are the McNabb haters now?

After only watching the game in person from rather high up, I'd say the D-line kept pressure on Bledsoe all day and allowed the secondary to step up and shut down Terrell Owens.  This is exactly what I thought the key to the game would be.

As far as how the fans handled T.O.'s return, I didn't notice anything Ray Didinger would have been ashamed of.  I didn't notice too many vulgar signs or hear too many comments which were horribly inappropriate.  At one point late in the game, it sounded as if the entire stadium was doing the "Ohhhhh D, Ohhhhhhh D, O.D." chant in unison.  The view of T.O. flipping out on the sideline set to the tune of 60,000 rabid Eagles fans chanting "O.D." made for a truly stellar Sunday in Philadelphia.

NFL Notes: Redskins name offensive, defensive coordinators

NFL Notes: Redskins name offensive, defensive coordinators

ASHBURN, Va. — The Washington Redskins turned to internal candidates to fill two critical vacancies, promoting Matt Cavanaugh to offensive coordinator and Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator.

Cavanaugh was the team's quarterbacks coach and Manusky its outside linebackers coach last season. The Redskins announced the promotions Monday along with the hires of Kevin O'Connell as quarterbacks coach and Jim Tomsula as defensive line coach.

It has been an offseason of upheaval for the coaching staff after the Redskins fired defensive coordinator Joe Barry and a few assistants and offensive coordinator Sean McVay left to become head coach of the Los Angeles Rams.

In its efforts to replace Barry after ranking 28th defensively in consecutive seasons, Washington interviewed former Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley, former Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine and former Buffalo Bills assistant Rob Ryan before opting for Manusky. The 50-year-old Manusky has been defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers and 49ers and worked with Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan in San Francisco.

Known for his fiery personality and booming voice on the practice fields, Manusky had only been on coach Jay Gruden's staff for one season as outside linebackers coach. Middle linebacker Will Compton tweeted: "Congrats to Coach Manusky!" when players were informed of his promotion.

Cavanaugh was Washington's quarterbacks coach for the past two years as Kirk Cousins twice set the franchise record for passing yards in a season. Cousins' status for 2017 remains in doubt after playing last season on the franchise tag, but with McVay gone he'll have a familiar face as his offensive coordinator.

Is this Canadian model Joel Embiid's celeb crush?

Is this Canadian model Joel Embiid's celeb crush?

The Sixers earned another last second win on Friday night while Joel Embiid was sitting on the bench after banging up his knee against the Portland Trailblazers.

So with Embiid on the bench, someone else had to step up and be the MVP.

And then Embiid tweeted something mysterious following the game.

Who is this Danielle and why is she the MVP?

The folks over at CSNPhilly's Breakfast on Broad did some digging this morning and may have unearthed who the "Danielle" Embiid was referring to was.

This is her on Friday night.

After going through the game footage, they found this shot of Embiid with a very pretty young lady who they believe to be Canadian model Danielle Knudson. Now, her Wiki page says she was dating some tenis player as of a year or so ago. But times and dating habbits can change.

Could Danielle Knudson be Embiid celebrity crush?

You'll also notice Embiid's latest Instagram was posted from the location listed as "Danielle's."

They see us rolling.. Another big time win #TheProcess

Another possible theory: Joel Embiid is messing with all of us regarding his "celebrity crush" and getting a date by making the All-Star game.
