Half-time in Oakland

Sunday, October 18, 2009, 5:44 PM
I'd love to be privy to what's going on in the Eagles locker room right now. Can't be many happy people in there. Against an Oakland Raiders team that has been outscored 96-16 the last three weeks, the Eagles trail 10-6. They've looked discombobulated in all three phases of the game. The offensive... Read more

Not the king

Sunday, October 18, 2009, 5:35 PM
Richard Seymour is punishing King Dunlap. Reminds me of the Giants versus Winston Justice a couple of years back. Dunlap, the second-year left tackle out of Auburn, is in because Jason Peters got injured early in the game, and he's really got no shot against the veteran Seymour, who has two sacks for...

Down in the district

Sunday, October 18, 2009, 5:12 PM
Not to get ahead of ourselves here, because the Eagles certainly have their hands full with the Raiders (it's now 10-3 after a Sebastian Janikowski field goal) but next week the Eagles could end Jim Zorn's stay in Washington. It's been ugly in the district, with former players ripping Zorn for being... Read more

Early life from Raiders

Sunday, October 18, 2009, 4:55 PM
Uh oh. Maybe this won't be a nothing burger. The Raiders actually look mean, not at all like a team that's just running through a scrimmage. That was Antonio Pierce's assessment after the Giants crushed Oakland 44-7 last week, and it seemed to have resonnated with the Raiders. They're getting pressure... Read more

Not all Russell

Sunday, October 18, 2009, 4:31 PM
JaMarcus Russell has been skewered lately for his work ethic, his talent, his confidence (or lack thereof), and just about everything else imaginable. And he's taken a lot of the heat for the Oakland Raiders' poor start. But if the first quarter against the Eagles is any indication, it's not all Russell... Read more

end game

Sunday, September 27, 2009, 3:51 PM
Looks like Jeff Garcia will come into the game. Not sure if this Chiefs defense will provide any sort of test for him. They just flashed Garcia's headshot. He looks more like a punter than a quarterback. Or maybe a trainer. He fumbled the second snap.That, my dear radio-callers, is why Kolb is starting... Read more

A defenseless Cassel

Sunday, September 27, 2009, 3:35 PM
If anyone still doesn't believe the system is more valuable than the player, I give you Matt Cassel. An all-pro-caliber QB with the Patriots, he will soon be a cripple with the Chiefs. ... DeSean Jackson could end up being one of the Eagles great second-round picks of all time. ... If the NFL wants... Read more
