Local Philadelphia Eagle, NASCAR and boys basketball

I wanted to make a quick post to link some stories I wrote this week. Pocono Mountain West graduate Mike Bamiro goes into his second year with the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeff Gordon is in a perfect position going into NASCAR’s last week off and Jon DeJesus is the new boys basketball coach at East Stroudsburg [...]

I was wrong, very wrong

I have no problem admitting when I’m wrong and I was very wrong about Chip Kelly. I knew Kelly was a very good football coach. His success as an offensive coordinator at both New Hampshire and Oregon, and as the head coach at Oregon was plain as day. His offenses were explosive, dynamic and a [...]

McNabb goes out as best Eagles QB

Pasted below is the column I wrote in Tuesday’s Pocono Record on Donovan McNabb, who retired as a Philadelphia Eagle on Monday and will have his No. 5 retired on Sept. 19. Enjoy. Donovan McNabb will never be the most popular athlete in Philadelphia, but there’s no question that he is the best quarterback in [...]

Eagles draft thoughts

Here is the column I wrote on the Eagles draft for Friday’s paper. While the returns from this year’s class won’t be known for a few years, the Eagles theoretically did quite well for themselves in last week’s NFL draft. I’m not much for grading picks, since none of the players selected has even taken [...]

Breakdown of Eagles free agent signings

I’m going to keep this short (I want to link a story more than anything), but here is a fantastic breakdown of the contracts the Eagles gave to the eight free agents they signed over the last week or so. Of the eight signings the only one I’m not a huge fan of is cornerback [...]

Checking my Eagles list

With it being Christmas and wish lists so prevalent at this time of year, I thought I’d share my list of Eagles players I’d keep after what has been the worst season I’ve seen since I became an Eagles fan in 1988. It’s been clear for months that Andy Reid won’t be back for a 15th season [...]

Reid is to blame

Enough is enough. Even though he tried to divert attention from his own failures by firing defensive coordinator Juan Castillo on Tuesday, there is no question that Eagles head coach Andy Reid is fully to blame for the dysfunctional football team he “runs.” His biggest blunder was putting Castillo, who had been the team’s offensive line coach [...]

What now for the Eagles

With one game left in an exceptionally disappointing season, the Eagles have little left to play for but pride. The funny thing is if they had any pride during the middle of the season Sunday’s home game against the Redskins game might actually mean something. Still, I’ll give them credit (just a little) that they’ve [...]

How to fix the Eagles

I debated whether or not I was qualified to write this, but if an offensive line coach who hadn’t coached any defensive football since 1989 at a Texas high school can become a defensive coordinator at the highest level of football more than 20 years later than it’s probably OK for me to give my [...]

Blog? Who me? That’s right me!

So it’s been more than two months since my last post. Yikes. Other media colleagues of mine blog daily or at least several times a week. I can’t promise that (and even if I did would you believe me anyway?), but I will do my best to keep up with blogging more, both here and [...]
