My life as a Philly fan the last month or so

Sept. 11, 2011 – Eagles-Rams – Meh.  The Rams are barely a speed bump in route to a deep playoff run.  No need to get all fired up over that one.  1-0, as we should be.  Got my eyes on bigger things, like a 1 or 2 seed.

Sept. 18, 2011 – Eagles-Falcons – Meh again. No way the Eagles lose this game if Michael Vick doesn’t get knocked out. None. No way, no how. This team is talented as hell. Flukey loss. If anything, I’m more encouraged after this one, albeit annoyed.

Sept. 25, 2011 – Eagles-Giants – “Are you shitting me, Andy? (Throws remote against wall, breaking it into 30 pieces) 1st and G from the 2, and you go Owen Schmitt, QB sneak with your concussed QB, and then Owen Schmitt again?”

“Calm down, honey. You’re scaring Charlie and Butters.”

Oct. 2, 2011 – Eagles-Niners – Ronnie… Wha… I can’t even… Just…

Oct. 2, 2011 (later that night) – “Oh well.  At least the Phillies are the best team in baseball, and it’s not even close. Honey, make sure you save a couple vacation days for the parade. You’ll need one for the parade itself, and then one for the sweet glorious recovery the next day.”

Oct. 7, 2011 – Phillies-Cardinals Game 5 – Eff.

Oct. 9, 2011 – Eagles-Bills – Lol, Juqua Parker. Well, at least I have the Flyers and Sixers on the horizon.

  8. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  9. I started playing restaurant when I was 6 years old handing out little menus to my family. All I knew how to cook was eggs but to me it was so much fun.

    I remember when Buddy Ryan was the Eagles coach and as a lifeling Eagle fan, I rooted against the Eagles just to hope Buddy would be fired. I’m getting to that point now with Andy. Just take a look at the last couple of years:
    - What do we have to show for the top 4 picks in the last 2 drafts?
    - Drafted a kicker and got rid of Akers. How did that work out?
    - Takes an O line coach and makes him a defensive coordinator. Nothing like bringing in a plumber to do an electrician’s job.
    - Does not believe in linebackers. And it shows. How about a competent safety too.
    - Play calling still has you scratching your head. The red zone offense has been terrible for years. And how about their success with a yard to go….Horrendous.
    I could go on and on. It’s time for Andy to go!!!!!

    1. Smitty2K3 says:

      I am okay with most of your points.

      But how can you judge the top 4 picks in the last 2 drafts?

      Brandon Graham – played fairly well for a rookie, then tore his ACL.

      Nate Allen – showed some promise as a rookie, then ruptured his patella tendon.

      And as for drafting a kicker to replace Akers. That’s also too early to tell “how that worked out.” Akers got a good deal from SF and we might’ve gotten our franchise kicker for the next decade. He’s only a rookie.

      Danny Watkins – Too early to tell.

      Jaiquan Jarrett – Too early to tell.

      1. Smitty2K3 says:

        I don’t know why Danny and Jaiquan ended up below that kicker paragraph. I didn’t type it that way… oh well, you get the point.

      2. TruBlu2theCore says:

        about the kicker…..we told ourselves the same thing with Beuhler….hopefully Bailey isn’t just a mirage of an oasis at an otherwise barren position for us for so long…

      3. retiredjim says:

        My comments about the draft picks is what are they doing today. Right now, there is no contribution at all this year. I don’t have the time and resources to check all of the other teams but my money would say that most if not all teams have some current contributions from their top picks the last two years.
        Maybe Jimmy could do a review of the NFC East.
        Also, I do understand that it is too early to kow the success or lack of same.

        1. Gary says:

          How is there no contribution this year? We have a starting guard who looked good yesterday besides 1 penalty, starting safety who is our best safety right now, a defensive end who is injured but returns in a few weeks, and another safety who hasn’t played much other than special teams which can probably be attributed to a shortened offseason.

      4. JoeW says:

        Danny Watkins – Too early to tell. Are kidding me? He is 26 yrs old and his rookie contract will be done when he is in he 30′s. One of the selling points to the fanbase for drafting a 26 yr old was that he is ‘really to play now’. He was only able to sniff some playing time because of injuries. Watkins will be marginal at best.

        1. fiftyfourd says:

          I thought he started this week because they pulled DeVan? I actually think he did alright in the game. I’d have to go back and rewatch it to know for sure, but I can’t bring myself to do that….

        2. Gary says:

          Sniff some time because of injuries? DeVan was benched in favor of him and I’m willing to bet Watkins will start the rest of the season.

    2. Brian says:

      And yet he won 10 games last year and 11 the year before.

      Even with the deficiencies you listed, we were still a pretty good team. There’s no denying that.

      Playoffs are a crapshoot (in all sports except basketball) and always have been so don’t give me the whole “he never won a championship” gripe.

      I think you have to look at the overall body of work, which, until the past 4 weeks has been elite in comparison to the rest of the league.

  14. Gary says:

    Somehow, we (Eagles) are a pk at Washington this week. I may have to lay some cash on the Skins.

    1. Smitty2K3 says:

      Whyyyyyy

  15. Imp says:

    You named your cat/dog Butters?

    1. Dog – Charlie
      Cat – Butters

    Hilarious Jimmy!!!

  17. JoeW says:

    Reid needs to go! Broke the bank on Free Agents but failed to address the LB’s – Casey Matthews pick was a leap of faith based on his family name…failure. Allows Washburn to run a ‘wide 9′ scheme which only works when you have competent LB’s to plug the holes.
    Castillo… need I say more… season killing mistake on Reid’s part.
    Drafted a 26 yr old O-Lineman who was suppose to be ready to play now. How did he look yesterday after not being ‘ready’ to play the first 4 weeks of the season?
    They team fails to execute week in and week out. Reid needs to go!

  18. Macc says:

    If AR wants to be in Miami I’ll help him pack.

  19. Immynimmy says:

    Andy Reid will be in Miami week 1 of next season. MARK. MY. WORDS.

    1. JoeW says:

      As long as he isn’t in Philly.

    2. Jay Walker (GIB) says:

      Eagles playing Miami week 1 next year?

  20. Jason-E says:

    I’m just flabbergasted.

  21. Macc says:

    Does 5-11 get the Fat Man canned?

    1. So hard to predict what that front office thinks, but I’d have to imagine 5-11 would do it, yeah.

  22. samson9 says:

    Jimmy, U know the stages well. I had similar feelings:

    @ATL: Stage 1.: Denial – “No problem, It’s bad luck. It’s not even real a loss, we had the game…”

    NYG: Stage 2: Anger- “Whaaaa, Juan!! Whoooaaa, Andy! Are you f’ing nuts?!”

    SF: Stage 3: Bargaining – “Ok, the the NFC East is bad. We will make it. Cowboys upset was worse then ours. NYG played bad football….and, yeah Rex Grossman is Rex Grossman”

    @BUF: Acceptance – “Ok, we are simply not a good fotball team. We knew we had to “gel”, but during the “geling process” we lost too many games….”

  23. BigBad Joe says:

    the eagles this year are looking alot like the Cowboys last year…..i have felt your pain….btw, as far as baseball goes, could be worse, Im a Cubbies Fan.

  24. Tracer Bullet says:

    I console myself by saying every pathetic loss, every inexplicable decision, every absolutely brain dead mistake brings us closer to that glorious day when Andy Reid is given the shoe. I know Banner will be here as long as Lurie owns the team (why couldn’t we have gotten a ruthless plutocrat?) but if Reid takes Roseman with him, so much the better.

    1. Smitty2K3 says:

      I don’t understand why you want Banner gone. Do you have a clue? You do realize that he’s probably the best cap manager in the league, right? Why do you think we were able to sign all of these free agents this year? It was because of Banner and Banner alone. Clearly, the moves haven’t paid off. And probably won’t. But Banner isn’t the problem.

      1. Tracer Bullet says:

        Banner is part of the brain trust that built this terrible team. He’s fine as a cap-and-contracts guy, but he and his protege Rosemen, need to stay the hell out of the muscle side of the family.

        1. Tracer Bullet says:

          A grammatical error and a misspelling. Why to go, dipshit.

          1. Tracer Bullet says:

            I give up.

  25. Jubmar says:

    Let’s go Sixers! Oh wait, there is no nba season. :(

  26. Euler.is.a.pimp says:

    This game feels like the Atlanta loss to me.

  27. Skinsational says:

    PhiLOLy. Sorry.
