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: (more…)

The Eagles Perfect 20/20 Vision for 2020

May 13th, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports

TSP has been watching from the sidelines for most of 2020 as the world fights off the worst pandemic in a century. Especially hit hard are the Sports and Entertainment worlds, as they count on Social gathering and crowds to flourish.  Most of us are left wondering what will happen to sports for the next year and sports and entertainment in general.  There may have to be a paradigm shift in the way we approach Sports in order to adapt to conditions on the ground and overcome the obstacles that the Corona-virus has created.

This brings us to the point of this article, the Eagles 2020 season and the schedule.  TSP believes there will be a season and it can be managed safely even if the crowd aspect is diminished.  As with anything there is risk involved and should conditions warrant an adjustment during the season, then the NFL and Players have to be willing and able to do so.  Petty bickering over contracts and money between billionaires and millionaires just isn’t gonna fly during a pandemic where people are losing everything and wondering what they will do to survive.  Being sore winners in not a good look to the peasants.

With all that said, below is a graphic of the Eagles 2020 Schedule and TSP thinks it’s going to be a tough one.  I’m gonna go with a 10-6 or 9-7 record with the Division Title and hope for better if possible.

Report: Jordan Howard healthy, ready to play

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!

What are the odds the Eagles will win SuperBowl 54

February 21st, 2019 by Leo | Comments Off on What are the odds the Eagles will win SuperBowl 54 | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

The 2018-19 season ended on a sour note as the Eagles made their bid to win back to back SuperBowls.  Typically it is a hard feat to do with the added pressure and being the main target for every team wanting to beat the Champs.  With Carson Wentz falling to injury for the second season in a row, good ole St. Nick stepped in to get the Eagles into the playoffs, beating the Rams in the process.  The Eagles fans thought another miracle was in the making with a double doink win over the Bears in the wildcard, but St. Nick fell short in a fourth quarter comeback against the Saints with a pass through the hands of Alshon Jeffrey that became a interception. It was an exciting ride for a bit and one pass/drive away from the NFC Championship game.

Well, with last season behind us and the New England Patriots winning another SuperBowl, the question arises on what chance the Eagles have to win SuperBowl 54.  If you want to check out the Eagles stats and figures for last year and upcoming news check out the Philadelphia Eagles page on NFL.com.

According to one source, the Eagles have the best Super Bowl 54 odds in the NFC East at +1800, narrowly ahead of Dallas (+2000). If they can bolster the backfield in free agency, they should be even shorter by Week 1. Philly was ranked 27th in rushing efficiency by Football Outsiders and 28th in rushing by Pro Football Focus last year, even though PFF graded the O-line as the 5th-best run-blocking unit. Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Corey Clement: all the RBs left meat on the bone, and the team never found a suitable replacement for Jay Ajayi. Le’Veon Bell would obviously come with huge off-field concerns, but putting his hyper-patient running style behind this offensive line would produce instant results. Lets see what the off-season brings.

The Prodigy Returns

September 23rd, 2018 by Leo | Comments Off on The Prodigy Returns | Filed in Eagles, Football, NFL

Carson Wentz’s return from injury will be one of the greatest moments in Philadelphia sports history.

Make no mistake about it, Carson Wentz turned the Eagles franchise around and brought them their first championship in six decades. Sure, Nick Foles stepped into the role and had a marvelous run, quarterbacking the team through the playoffs and an electrifying Super Bowl win. But Foles and his teammates rode Wentz’s spirit to victory. They followed the path blazed by Wentz, and were infused with the confidence that can only be inspired by a player endowed with divine abilities. Carson Wentz took a team, and a city for that matter, that had been so demoralized from fifty-seven years of losing, and changed their DNA. He changed their destiny.

So, on Sunday, September 23rd, 2018 at 1:00 p.m., savor what you are witnessing. Listen to the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field when Carson Wentz trots out of the tunnel onto the hallowed grass of his home turf. There will be a roar you will not hear again in your lifetime. Because the fans know innately what this wunderkind did. Generations feel it in their marrow. And they will welcome back their young, gridiron general with the enthusiasm and reverence reserved for only the greatest of warriors. It will be, well, let’s call it a religious experience.

That’s what Carson Wentz means to Philadelphia.

To take a peek back, it’s hard to believe what Wentz has accomplished in less than two years as a pro.
