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.

SuperBowl Facts and Firsts… 54…

January 31st, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Football, General, NFL, Sports, Trivia

In collaboration with CBS Sports

Super Bowl LIV, at its core, is a game that includes one of the best defenses in the league against the most explosive offense in the NFL. With a razor-thin point spread (Chiefs -1), the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are expected to take part in a close, classic battle this Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. We put on our hard hats and did some digging, and we came up with 54 things you should know about the 54th Super Bowl. From gambling insights to NFL records on the line, this list has everything you could want to know about the big game, and it will all go down this Sunday. 

Let’s not waste any time, we’ve got lots to go over:

1. The game will be played between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, marking the first time these two have met in a Super Bowl.

2. This is the first Super Bowl appearance for the Chiefs in 50 years. The last time Kansas City made it this far, it was Jan. 11, 1970, when the Chiefs topped the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV for their first — and only — Lombardi Trophy.

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!

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

December 14th, 2019 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TalkSportsPhilly

Click Image to go to Game Preview

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!
