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.

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??

Leave your thoughts in a comment if you wish…

TalkSportsPhilly does not support Racism of any kind…

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!

Soul to the ArenaBowl 2019

August 8th, 2019 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Football, General, Soul, Sports

GAME PREVIEW: ARENABOWL 32

After defeating the defending-champion Washington Valor in both games of the first-round home-and-home series, the Philadelphia Soul will travel to Albany to take on the top-seeded Empire in ArenaBowl 32. This marks the Soul’s sixth title game appearance and third in the last four years. Fans can watch this weekend’s matchup live on ESPN2 or listen to the action on 97.5 The Fanatic.

The Philadelphia defense contained Washington’s dual-threat quarterback Arvell Nelson, the league leader in total offense this season. Over the two-game series, the Second Team All-Arena selection threw five interceptions and was sacked seven times. Leading the way was recent pickup Malik Forrester. The defensive lineman has a league-leading 4.5 sacks this postseason, including three on Sunday. He and the defensive line will look to get pressure on Albany quarterback Tommy Grady, who has been taken to the turf just one time this season.

That sack came at the hands of Soul lineman Sean Daniels during the team’s Week 10 win over the Empire. Philadelphia’s pass rush appeared to rattle Grady, who completed just eight of 18 passes in the second half while throwing two picks. This week, the Soul will attempt to get pressure on Grady while limiting the impact of his favorite target, 2019 Wide Receiver of the Year Malachi Jones.

Having dismantled the Washington defense, the Soul’s high-powered offense will face an Albany team that allowed just 47 points in its two playoff games against the Baltimore Brigade. Philadelphia quarterback Dan Raudabaugh is no stranger to the ArenaBowl, having led the team to four previous appearances and two titles. The nine-year veteran ranks second in passing yards and touchdowns in ArenaBowl history behind only Nick Davila.
