  1. I really would like to see how some of our guys will be showing out in the nickel and dime sets. They really need to consider putting Kazee in there though.
  2. Yeah, that's right. We're going 0-16 from what I heard! Well, then next year's draft should really be interesting then!
  3. My "First" planned live game... Monday Night Football - November 19, 1973 was 'supposed' to be my first Falcons game. Back in the early days of MNF with everyone's favorite analyst to hate, one Howard Cosell. You always saw posters in the stadiums ragging Cosell and this night would be no different. I had spent the entire weekend making mine. I used a "MAD" magazine that I had which had one of their funny drawings of Cosell in it and I finally got it just right on top of the body of a turkey. The words were big and bold: "THURSDAY'S DINNER!". Everyone that came and saw it that Sunday, thought it was the funniest poster that could go into a MNF game at the time. Then the bad news, my then Brother-In-Law who was supposed to take me to the game, came down sick and couldn't take me as planned. I couldn't help but shed a few tears after all the work put into the poster. But I did watch that game at home against the Vikings and watched the Falcons earn a hard earned victory which kind of made it even more bittersweet in some ways. It would be quite a while before I did get to go see my first game. So, as a result, my first game was in 1986 at home against the Rams. The Rams' QB that day: Steve Bartkowski. We beat those Rams 26-14 that Sunday afternoon. Our QB that year was David Archer with Riggs as the RB. We still had Van Note, Mike Kenn and Bill Fralic on the OL. On defense we had the 'bug man' John Rade, Scott Case, Bobby Butler and Tim Green that year. They gave ol' Bartkowski a run for his money that day! But I still wished I had gone to that Vikings game in '73.
  4. Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery could start season on PUP list Print By Chris Wesseling Around the NFL Writer Published: Aug. 13, 2018 at 01:57 p.m. Updated: Aug. 13, 2018 at 04:01 p.m. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz might beat his No. 1 receiver back to the starting lineup. Due to the timing of his shoulder surgery following Super Bowl LII, Alshon Jeffery is no lock to be ready for the NFL Kickoff Game versus the Falcons on Sept. 6, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the situation. In fact, there's a chance that Jeffery will remain on the physically unable to perform list to start the season, Rapoport added. In which case, the seventh-year veteran would miss at least the first six weeks of 2018. Jeffery is one of a handful of key Eagles players recovering from surgery, joining Wentz (torn ACL, LCL), running back Darren Sproles (torn ACL), left tackle Jason Peters (torn ACL), defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (back), pass rusher Brandon Graham (ankle), middle linebacker Jordan Hicks (Achilles) and special-teams ace Chris Maragos (knee). Although Jeffery failed to record a single 100-yard performance in Doug Pederson's spread-the-wealth aerial attack, he came up big in the postseason, hauling in three touchdowns in the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl. After originally landing in Philadelphia on a one-year deal last offseason, the Eagles rewarded Jeffery with a $52 million extension in December. Should Jeffery miss the start of the season, the Eagles' wide-receiver depth will be tested beyond deep threat Mike Wallace and slot weapon Nelson Agholor. Expect Wentz to lean heavily on his tight-end tandem of Zach Ertz and promising second-round rookie Dallas Goedert as he attempts to recapture his own pre-injury form. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000947616/article/eagles-wr-alshon-jeffery-could-start-season-on-pup-list
  5. Read it all because like him, I have endured it all and then some before they were fans. There's so much more that can be added prior to '89 (when they started). And of course, now quite a bit since the article was written. But the bottom line of it is, that sometimes your 'team' hasn't obviously been nowhere near as successful as maybe more than half the league. Over 50 years and still 'aching' for just that one SB trophy, that somehow still didn't make it our way early last year, just so that we finally made it to the pinnacle of this sport. Time is running out for me I know, but if there's one thing I would like to see before I go, is for the city of Atlanta to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. One other thing I know, I will die an Atlanta Falcons fan having endured the heartbreaks and humiliations that this team has provided since Tommy Nobis was picked.
  6. Markakis is killing it. And he does have four other 40+ doubles years when he was with Baltimore.
  7. Looks like the bald guy directly behind Murphy is Tim Hudson. The guy wearing the cap on the second row kind of resembles Chris Chambliss. The tall guy on the right, Marvin Freeman.
  8. Yeah, I recall a recent interview with Murphy saying that he had a son playing with the Rams.
  9. I see Bruuuuuuuuce Benedict on the front row. Kind of hard to get a good look at some of the others.
  10. Yeah! Hope we stay there this time! Go Braves!
  11. 94 pitches with 71 strikes! He was nailing that strike zone consistently. Awesome win and looking like Phillies about to drop one in San Diego. Down 2-0 going into the ninth. Go Padres!
  12. But didn't Debo make every single play on the first series?
  13. And I thought it was a case of the Jets players with gas... "Take a whiff of this Duke!"
  14. It should be noted that on Debo's 3 snaps, he made the play/tackle on each one! He was killing it.
  15. A lot of butthurt though...
