Riley Cooper N-Word Controversy

January 1st, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in 94WIP, Eagles, General, NFL, Video

Thinking about all the Racism and Discrimination as the main topic of this year’s discussions besides COVID-19 has brought back the thought of the Riley Cooper incident at Lincoln Financial Field.  It garnered a lot of attention then for insensitivity, I wonder what people think of this now during the current climate??

TSP Eagles Analysis by 94 WIP

As I read this article by Eliot Shorr-Parks, I inquired to him earlier about comment and talk about the last Eagles game, Eliot never got back to TSP to answer, We do agree that Howard coming back will plug a huge whole in the Eagles lineup.  A strong runner is the key to opening up this whole Eagles offense, what there is left of it though. Lets keep our fingers crossed and TSP thanks Eliot and 94WIP for their contribution to this article, hopefully further collaboration happens in the future.  Another Game review will be released before game on Sunday against the Giants.  Happy Holidays to all!

Eagles Final Spoiler Hurdle vs the Cowboys, Division and Playoffs on the Line

December 21st, 2019 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports, TSP Radio

As hard as it may be to believe, the Eagles are one step away from winning the NFC East Division and a Playoff birth.  The same applies to the Dallas Cowboys as well making this head to head match-up the game of the week.  One of the most passionate rivalries in the NFL, this should prove to be a playoff type feel and all on the line play by both sides. 

It is my belief the Eagles can win this game!  A few keys to victory are: Carson Wentz has to step up and lead as the Franchise QB he is.  The defense will tell the tale on both sides, the Eagles have to stop the run game or severely limit it and the corners can’t give up the deep pass.  As long as everyone else holds their own and produces like they should and establish some type of running game then, the Eagles will come away with the Victory!  Should the Eagles fail in these areas then it will be a long Monday in Philadelphia.

Here is the current Injury and Status report for the game on Sunday:

Eagles vs Redskins Spoiler Game Hurdle #3

Well, once again the Eagles still hold their fate in their hands.  Somehow they managed to make it by spoiler game hurdle #2 and face the Redskins this week in spoiler game hurdle #3.  This time the lowly Redskins (3-10) get a chance to spoil the Eagles run for the playoffs and as I always note, anything can happen in inter-division games, no guarantees. 

This is the time that Carson Wentz needs to show his franchise QB status, this is where the great ones step up and lead their team to the playoffs even with any shortcomings of the team.  As I said all the way thru the Eagles SuperBowl Run in 2018, if the players and lines hold their own, that’s it, they should win this game no problem.  Unfortunately, the Eagles have had a problem doing that this year.  

The way I see it, if the Eagles D-line gets to Haskins and several sacks, get Ertz to have a productive day, and establish a running game combined with Wentz’s leadership, the prediction I will make is the Eagles will win 34-24.

Giants vs Eagles, Spoiler Game Hurdle #2

December 9th, 2019 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports

At the beginning of the season everyone picked the Eagles to have a winning season of at least 10-6 and above.  Needless to say those aspirations didn’t come true and as of last week the Eagles needed to win out to take the division because there is no way else to get to the playoffs.  Luckily, even after a ugly loss to the Dolphins the Eagles (5-7) still hold their fate in their own hands thanks to Dallas (6-7) having a loss themselves.  So, somehow we survived spoiler hurdle #1.

Now the Giants are in position to play spoiler this week, even going as far as bringing in Eli Manning to try and bring a win.  A risky venture for Eli because if he loses this game then he will have a losing QB record for his career, currently standing at an even win-loss record of 116-116.

Eli Manning Career Stats

Even though the Eagles should win this game no problem, this year you can’t count on anything and with the rest of the games being inter-division, anything could happen.  Lets keep our fingers crossed and see if the Eagles can clear hurdle #2. Here is a listing of the Injury report for tonight’s game.  Fly Eagles Fly!
