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.

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 | No Comments | 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.

Philly Sports News: Revisiting some memorable Eagles-Steelers games

September 22nd, 2016 by Kyle Lutz | Comments Off on Philly Sports News: Revisiting some memorable Eagles-Steelers games | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports

Over the years, despite the fact that neither team plays in the same conference as the other, the Steelers and Eagles have had some memorable games. This is in addition to the fact that, 73 years ago, the Eagles and Steelers temporarily combined to be one team, the Steagles, due to both teams having lost many of their players to World War II. Since both teams started playing each other in 1933, surprisingly, the Eagles have a 46-28-3 record vs. Pittsburgh. One of the 77 games was added to the Eagles’ 10 greatest games DVD that came out seven-years ago.

On November 12th, 2000, at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium, the Eagles put together a late fourth-quarter comeback to win in overtime, 26-23. With 3:55 left in the game, trailing 20-13, the Eagles were able to stop Hall of Fame halfback Jerome Bettis on 3rd down. Despite the stop, 13 seconds later, Pittsburgh kicker Kris Brown kicked a 40-yard field goal to increase their lead to 10. Kick returner and running back Brian Mitchell ran back the ensuing kick for 23 yards. After three-straight completions, and a lucky unnecessary-roughness call, on a fade route, Donovan McNabb caught Mitchell for 13 yards and a touchdown.

Then the Eagles successfully executed an onside-kick attempt, recovered the ball, and, as time expired, went on to tie the game at 23 all. During their last two drives, they were able to score 10 points in just two-and-a-half minutes. That year, the Steelers’ defense only allowed 13 passing touchdowns (McNabb had two of them that game, and 0 turnovers), and their unit ranked in the top 10 in several categories, including takeaways. 10:44 into overtime, with a 42-yard field goal, Eagles’ kicker David Akers won the game.

2000- Final Score- Eagles 26-23

In 1947, the 8-4 Steelers suffered their first ever playoff loss, 21-0 to the Eagles. A year later, vs. Chicago, the Eagles would win their first-ever championship. In that 1947 season, Pittsburgh was an even-keeled team, on both offense and defense. They ranked seventh in the league in both points for and points against (240-259). In October of that season, at Forbes Field, Pittsburgh beat Philadelphia 35-24, despite Eagles’ Hall of Fame halfback Steve Van Buren rushing for 133 yards. Leading up to their December divisional-round postseason game, the Steelers that season had three games with 30 or more points, including 38 at the Polo Grounds, yet in their playoff loss, they were shut out and only mustered 154 total yards. Two Pro Football Hall of Famers started that day for the Eagles (halfback Steve Van Buren and center/defensive end Alex Wojciechowic).
