Eagles vs Giants…Titans of the East Battle in Jersey

November 15th, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TSP Radio

Well, here we are as Eagles fans coming off a much needed bye week and the Eagles still sit atop of the NFC East with a whopping 3-4-1 record.  The Giants come into the game with an even worse record at 2-7.  This doesn’t mean the Eagles are going to skate in with an easy victory at the Meadowlands.

Once again, the Eagles keys to winning the game are the Lines, both in protecting Wentz from sacks and putting pressure and getting sacks on their young QB Daniel Jones.  Carson Wentz will once again have to avoid giving up interceptions and holding on to the ball too long, and of course accuracy.  If the Eagles can establish a running game early, it will open up the passing game and Carson will hit his targets today if the Line can give good protection.

The Eagles will have right tackle Lane Johnson, running back Miles Sanders, tight end Dallas Goedert and wide receivers Alshon Jeffrey and Jalen Reagor playing this time around, which should make a big difference in the Eagles offensive scheme for the game.

Below is the Injury report for the Eagles this week:

Cowboys and Eagles Battle for 1st in NFC East

November 1st, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TSP Radio

Needless to say to those in the know, thank God the Eagles are in the NFC East.  For most teams the season would be pretty much over and sights set on a rebuilding year and spoiler roles.  Fortunately, the Eagles have a helping hand from above currently with being in 1st place in the NFC East with a poultry 2-4-1 record.

The Cowboys come in with even a less impressive record of 2-5 and believe it or not, whoever wins this Sunday Night Football game will be in 1st place.  Many predict a 6-8 win season will be good enough to be the NFC Champs.  Below is the injury report for the Cowboys vs Eagles game.

Maxwell Football Club and The Ertz Foundation Team Up

October 20th, 2020 by FootballWiz | No Comments | Filed in College Sports, Football, General, NFL, Sports

The Maxwell Football Club Partners with the Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner to Host Free Combine for Philadelphia High School Football Players.

The Philadelphia Public High School Football League won’t be playing football this fall, even though most of the state of Pennsylvania is playing on Friday nights. For many of these high school football players, football is their safe place, their lifeline, it’s their family, and it’s a potential vehicle that could change the trajectory of their lives. For these Seniors, not playing football this year could negatively impact their chances of playing college football, making it that much harder to pursue their dreams. In an effort to provide hope to a community in need, The Maxwell Football Club partnered with The Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner to host The Beyond The Field Senior Showcase, which was a free, state-of-the-art combine for Philadelphia high school football players. The participant fees were completely covered by donations from The Maxwell Football Club, The Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner – so every high school athlete who participated was able to do so without charge.

The combine was held on Saturday, October 17th, and proved to be a huge success. There were approximately 150 high school football players who attended the combine to display their skills in front of scouts and college coaches. There were more than 40 college coaches from 32 different universities who attended the combine. There were also 15 high school coaches working with the players, 7 of which have coached in at least one state championship game. These high school athletes had the opportunity to record times for the 40-yard dash, the pro shuttle, vertical jump and also performed on the field drills. Due to the pandemic, safety was of the utmost importance during the combine. The Maxwell Football Club provided athletic trainers and followed strict COVID-19 precautions – including temperature checks and masks for all combine attendees.

Eagles dominate NFL East as they meet the undefeated Steelers

October 11th, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TalkSportsPhilly

Yes, I know the headline is a bit off if you have been watching the Eagles season in 2020.  Somehow with their first win this year against San Francisco, it lifted the Eagles to 1st place in the Division with a 1-2-1 record.  The Steelers are 3-0 and looking strong with Big Ben still at the helm.

The Eagles have to bring their A-game if they stand a chance of beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh.  If the Offensive line can’t stop the Steelers from sacking Wentz, it looks to be a long day for the Eagles.  Everyone has to step up and the Eagles have to produce a few turnovers if there is a prayer to win.

Here is some of the stats and injuries on today’s game…

Do or Die for the season by Game 3 for Eagles

September 27th, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports

Do or Die for the Eagles by Game 3 in the season.  Most Eagles fans once again felt they had a Division winning team and playoff bound at the beginning of the season.  As per 2020, that appears not to be in the cards.  With an 0-2 start, the Eagles are already facing must win games and the bid for the division and playoffs on the line.  With terrible performances in the first 2 games and tons of sacks and mistakes and shoddy play by Carson Wentz leaves the Philly fan base bedazzled as the Eagles enter Game 3 against the lowly Bengals who are also 0-2 and once again the Eagles are expected to Win.

Carson Wentz has assured the fans that he is ready to play and focused on the game and believes the Eagles will rebound with a win and a chance to get back in the hunt.

The keys to the game as far as I see it are: Read the rest of this entry »

Maxwell College Football Weekly Update

September 17th, 2020 by FootballWiz | No Comments | Filed in Football, General, NCAA, Sports
Maxwell Football Club
Weekly College Football Update
Week 2  
By Rich Cirminiello

Highlights of notable Maxwell Award candidates
for the week ending Sept. 12  
   
Who’s Hot  

WR Jonathan Adams, Arkansas State  

The abbreviated September slate is providing a bigger spotlight to the Sun Belt Conference… and the league is capitalizing on it. The Red Wolves went into Manhattan and shocked Kansas State, 35-31, for just their second-ever win over a Power 5 opponent. Adams led the way with three TD catches, including a spectacular one-handed grab and the game-winner with 38 seconds left.

QB Micale Cunningham, Louisville

Cunningham has picked up where he left off in 2019. And that’s going to make for some exciting times this fall in Louisville. There are still some kinks and a little rust, but the junior still accounted for 367 total yards and four scores in Saturday’s 35-21 win over a dangerous Western Kentucky squad. Cunningham’s 70-yard scoring strike to Dez Fitzpatrick put the game out of reach in the third quarter.

QB Sam Ehlinger, Texas 

UTEP was on the other side of the ball, so no one should get too carried away after one weekend. But the Longhorn passing game was potent in Saturday’s 59-3 rout, despite using a slew of new and young receivers. Chemistry was no problem for Ehlinger, who completed 25-of-33 for 426 yards and five touchdown passes to five different teammates.
