This Sean Loves the Eagle’s DeSean!

McFraud

As the Redskin’s coach Shanahan sells garbage about how great McFraud looks in mini camp, I laugh! He is or was a great coach and I understand how he has to back his present QB and convince fans about his team to sell tickets.

But seriously this is a joke. You national NFL fans see the nice guy McNabb from the outside and most think he is a great QB. As an insider who had season tix’s and never missed a snap, I see otherwise. Good at best and at crucial times, just plain horrific!

This leads to  the latest great Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson’s comments. He stated “he see’s no loss in losing McNabb.” And “he was happy with the decision to go with Kolb!” My spin is the super fast Jackson was tired of being a sitting duck crossing the middle as Donnie constantly threw behind him, over him or at his feet!

People thought TO was crazy! Yes, he might be an ego maniac, but will go down as one of the top 5 receivers ever! He stated after the Super Bowl against the Patriot’s when the Eagles had victory in sight, “talk to #5 about the last drive, I was not the one throwing up or tired!” This comes from a guy who was advised by three doctors to not play in the Super Bowl for risk of ending his career after breaking his leg 6 weeks earlier! He still came out with 12 catches for 111 yards.

Rua Knocks Out Machida

May 9th, 2010 by Christian | 6 Comments | Filed in General

Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua knocked out previously undefeated Lyoto Machida last night to claim the UFC Light Heavyweight Title.

CAUTION: The video is pretty brutal, so if you don’t like violence, don’t watch it. The right hand drops Machida, then additional punches on the ground knock him out cold.

Double Trouble

May 9th, 2010 by Christian | 5 Comments | Filed in General

Polanco Goes 3 for 4 in Loss

The Bad: The Phillies hit into three double plays and score only one run on nine hits. Nine base runners were stranded.

The Good: Joe Blanton had another decent outing in his second start back from rehab.  He did not surrender a hit until the fifth inning, before giving up three runs in the sixth.   Placido Polanco went 3 for 4. Shane Victorino (4) and Jayson Werth (2) each stole a base.

Commentary: Teams are going to lose some games over the course of a 162 game season. This was one of them. Poor hitting with runners on base will get you every time.

Next Game: Today vs. Atlanta at The Bank
Game Time: 1:35 p.m. ET
Pitching Matchup: Cole Hamels (2-2, 4.42) vs. Kenshin Kawakami (0-5, 5.47)
