Maxwell Football Club Pro Momentum Week 3

Maxwell Club Momentum

By Joseph Santoliquito
Maxwell Football Club Weekly Pro Football Preview – Week 3
 
Highlights of notable NFL performances for the week ending Sept. 20.
 
Special players want the ball when games are on the line in the fourth quarter. And if it seems as though games have been on the line more often this season, that’s because they have been.
 
Through two weeks, the 2021 season has produced 10 games decided by a field goal or less. That’s tied for the fourth-most such contests in NFL history through Week 2. Seven of the league’s 16 games last week were thrillers in that category.
 
Each of the Dallas Cowboys’ two games have been decided by three points or fewer, including their walk-off road win over the Chargers last week. The Cowboys (1-1), who host the Philadelphia Eagles (0-2) on Monday Night Football (8:15 PM ET, ESPN), have kept games close by leading the NFL in both takeaways (six) and turnover margin (plus-four).
 
Dallas’ opponent last week, the Los Angeles Chargers (1-1), travels to face the Kansas City Chiefs (1-1) on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, CBS). Each of the AFC West rivals has played two games this season decided by four points or less. Close games are the culture in the NFL, so as the league enters Week 3, get ready for special players to seize the day.
 
A Rush Of Rookies Under Center
 
Six rookie quarterbacks – Chicago’s Justin Fields, New England’s Mac Jones, San Francisco’s Trey Lance, Jacksonville’s Trevor Lawrence, Houston’s Davis Mills and the New York Jets’ Zach Wilson – have attempted a pass this season, tied with 1971 (six) for the most rookie quarterbacks to attempt a pass in the first two weeks of a season since the league merger in 1970. Five of those rookies could start this week, which would make Week 3 of the 2021 season the second time in the Super Bowl era, excluding the strike-shortened 1987 season, in which five rookie quarterbacks started in the same week within the first three weeks of a season. It also happened in 2012.

Eagles Schedule 2021 plus Prediction

September 17th, 2021 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports, TSP Radio

Well, Football season is underway for 2021 and the Eagles stand a chance to win the division in the weak NFC East Division.  Jalen Hurts and the Offense looked good in the week one win over the Falcons for a 1-0 start.  The right start for the New Head Coach and hopes of continued success.  TalkSportsPhilly and particularly myself hold the season prediction as 9-7 with strong chance at Division Title.  Maybe a bit optimistic but the Eagles seem to have a little more in them than first thought, Lets See!!

Below is the Eagles Schedule for the 2021 Season:

Eagles vs Browns Preview and Prediction 2020

November 22nd, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TSP Radio


This week the Eagles face a much improved Cleveland Browns team holding a 6-3 record in a much tougher division than the Eagles.  As we saw last game against the Giants, the Eagles fell flat on their face with an ugly 27-17 loss.  Now the Eagles head into Cleveland with a 3-5-1 record and still in first place in the horrid NFC East.

Once again, within the horrid NFC East, even if the Eagles lose again this week, they will still hold 1st in the Division because it’s the Giants bye week this week.  With Dallas and Washington at 2-7, even if they win and Eagles lose, the Eagles still hold 1st place.

Here is a listing of the Eagles injury report for the Browns game:

Leo Interviews Vince “The Invincible” Papale on TSP Radio

July 10th, 2019 by Leo | Comments Off on Leo Interviews Vince “The Invincible” Papale on TSP Radio | Filed in Eagles, General, Interviews, PhillyWood, TSP Radio

In TalkSportsPhilly’s history I had a chance to talk with and interview Vince Papale on TalkSportsPhilly radio.  Vince has a lot of great advice to bestow in his book and in the interview.  I was impressed on how humble and friendly Vince is, he has a genuine interest in others and their success.  The “Invincible” movie very much similar to TalkSportsPhilly’s bid to talk sports and entertainment in Philadelphia.

In this interview we talk about his book “Be Invincible”, the movie, the Eagles, and future projects for Vince.  So take a listen and enjoy what Vince has to say.

Phillies sign Bryce, That’s Nice

March 1st, 2019 by Leo | Comments Off on Phillies sign Bryce, That’s Nice | Filed in Baseball, General, MLB, Phillies

After months and months of talk here in the Philly area about signing Bryce Harper, finally the Phillies and Bryce signed a contract! The contract is for 13 years and $330 million dollars and Harper, 26, will be 39 when this contract runs out.  But the $25 million AAV of the deal means Harper could possibly be traded at some point in his career. After the announcement of the signing the Phillies sold over 100,000 tickets already for the upcoming season.

Harper has dominated the NL East throughout his career. He’s hit 96 home runs in his career vs. NL East opponents, with an OPS of .909.  In Harper’s 50 career games at Citizen’s Bank Park, he has a .930 OPS with 14 home runs.  With the most home runs being hit in Citizen’s Bank Park, that should mean the Phillies and the fans will have a lot to cheer about in the upcoming years. One thing that seems odd is a no opt-out in the contract, the Boras deal doesn’t have any opt-outs for the player or the Phillies.  Considering Boras typically adds that into the deals, you begin to wonder what actually happened behind closed doors while negotiating the contract.

Why did it take so long? Not really sure other than he was holding out for a better deal even though a lot of people felt deals of this magnitude as “stupid money”.  There are some concerns with Harper’s career so far, he has missed time with injuries, he’s amounted to fewer than 2.0 bWAR in three of his seven big-league seasons. Harper has had inconsistent defense and he struck out a career-high 169 times in 2018.

It should be interesting to see how Harper is received in Washington this year and what other moves the Phillies will make in their bid to win the NL East.  If you would like to check out Harper’s stats you can see them on the Baseball Reference site.  By signing the biggest contract ever you know he made some kind of history, Harper surpasses Giancarlo Stanton for total contract value.  Stanton signed a $325 million extension with the Miami Marlins but Harper will probably hold this title for quite some time.

Some other notable links to brush up on your Harper stats and information, here is a list:
