The pressure of playing in a big market is new to Michael Carter-Williams. The thing is, the small market he played before this may have been even tougher for an athlete.
The Eagles go into Sunday’s game with Washington having lost 10 consecutive games at Lincoln Financial Field. Though there have been many theories, there seems to be no real explanation for the team’s poor play at home, save for last season’s poor play pretty much everywhere.
The 94WIP Morning Show announced their Winners and Weasels for the week of October 25, 2013.
Though Charles Barkley and Michael Vick played different sports, with different degrees of success in Philadelphia, they will both go down in Philadelphia sports history together in one particular category: lightning rods.
Confession time: I was worried about my pick last week. For those who missed it, I had the Chargers on the road in Jacksonville. At the time, I was concerned about the Chargers’ inconsistent play (they hadn’t won back-to-back games), their short week combined with a trip across the country and a puzzling seven-point spread.
Most of the talk about the Eagles ugly, 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, has been about the quarterback. Nick Foles was by all accounts, terrible, missing receivers, and often times holding the ball far too long. Foles was inaccurate and ineffective.
For five weeks I’ve been walking on eggshells around the NFL schedule trying to avoid the landmine game that would blow me out of the 94WIP Suicide Pool.
I’m looking at five games in week 5 for us to pick from. Depending on which teams you’ve used to keep your pulse steady, your choice may differ. Or you could pick a different game entirely, who am I to stop you? If you are one of the more than 9,000 left above water that means you’re doing something right.
Billy Wagner did not have a good relationship with Phillies fans, and that’s putting it lightly.
Eagles players were heard yelling ‘Papa John’s,” prior to Manning snapping the ball during the Broncos 52-20 win. Manning is featured in Papa John’s commercials, and owns several franchise locations of the pizza delivery restaurant.
Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis knows what he’s facing, and what people are saying, and the team is using it as motivation.
Still watching every game, Charlie Manuel talks about the current state of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Even though the Cleveland Bronws surprised everyone and won their last game in shootout fashion against the Vikings, it’s still widely believed they’re planning for the future. The first shoe to drop was obviously their trade of Trent Richardson to the Colts in exchange for a 2014 first round pick.
The Eagles suffered a disappointing 26-16 loss to Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs last night, falling to 1-2 on the season.
94WIP’s Marc Farzetta says his relationship with fans is why Andy Reid is respected, but not loved.
