Report: Andy Reid Stays Unless He Fires Castillo

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk believes there is a way that Andy Reid could remain the head coach of the Eagles. Per a league source, Reid’s future will hinge on his willingness to admit that it was a mistake to shift Juan Castillo from offensive line coach to defensive coordinator.  If Reid concedes that he erred, and rectifies the blunder by firing Castillo, Reid will stay...

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch continues torrid pace in win over Eagles

The Seattle Seahawks delivered another blow to the reeling Philadelphia Eagles with a 31-14 defeat while RB Marshawn Lynch continued his torrid pace in the victory. The Seattle Seahawks intercepted Philadelphia Eagles QB Vince Young four times, returning the last one for an interception on their way to winning their third game in four tries last night. Seattle RB Marshawn...

Who Will Replace Andy Reid?

After last night’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, its looks like Reid has lost control of the Eagles. He's had his fair share of chances and it tenure has run its course. He has to do a better job yet never does. He hired former Offensive Line Coach Juan Castillo to run his defense. What is he doing? But who will replace the most successful coach in the history of the franchise...

Marshawn Lynch: Pavlovian Skittle Beast

“TASTE THE RAIN MOE! GIMME ALL DAT BAG! GONE SKIT SKIT SKIT SKIT SKIT SKIT” In conclusion, if you reward your child with candy for every positive deed, they’ll either grow up to be a mentally warped fatty with a skewed set of extrinsic motivations or a borderline deranged NFL running back. I’ll take those odds. [via]

Lynch rewarded by Skittles for following the rainbow

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch rocked the Eagles on Thursday night and generated some laughs by snacking on Skittles following his first-quarter touchdown burst. Now the candy makers are taking pains to ensure he never runs out.

Is There a Better Way to Celebrate a Touchdown Than Eat Some Skittles?

If your a football fan you know the Eagles got swamped 31-14 last night by the Seahawks.  You also know Marshawn Lynch has been on fire during the second half of the season and is a must start in fantasy.  No better way to celebrate one of his two touchdowns last night than grab a bag of sugar filled skittles and go to town.

Marshawn Lynch’s blow-away run, seen through many eyes

SEATTLE, Wash. -- In a game where the Seattle Seahawks beat the tar out of the Philadelphia Eagles to the tune of a 31-14 score and ran for 178 yards on 33 carries in the process, Marshawn Lynch's 15-yard touchdown run with 9:19 remaining in the first quarter may have been the definitive play. It typified the way Lynch has been running over the last month — as physically as...

Lynch guides Seahawks past error-prone Eagles

Marshawn Lynch ran for 148 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns as the Seattle Seahawks beat the Philadelphia Eagles 31-14 on Thursday night.

Eagles Should Watch Remember the Titans

Video has surfaced of Andy Reid and DeSean Jackson talking in Training Camp about his effort. Seeing how the season has played out, it all makes sense now. Minus the racist stuff.   In all seriousness, it is amazing how his Eagles team is going through the same problems they try to teach to high school kids in Disney movies. Effort. Playing together. Lack of leadership. It's...

Beast Mode Is Back

In a touchdown run that drew immediate comparisons to his score on the New Orleans Saints in last year's playoffs, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch found the goal line using pure tenacity and forced NFL Network broadcaster Brad Nessler to eat his "he'll get nothing" words. It drew first blood for Seattle and made a game thusfar...

Final: Hawks 31, Eagles 14

The Seattle Seahawks rebounded nicely from a tough loss against Washington last week by defeating a talented, but wounded Philadelphia Eagles’ squad 31-14. Seattle was solid in all three phases of the game, but this one belonged to Marshawn Lynch, who finished with a season-high 148 rushing yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns. Lynch ran over, around and through Philadelphia...

Vick’s contract will be a factor in Reid’s status

Earlier this week, the word on the NFL street was that, despite the implosion of the Dream Team, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie would keep coach Andy Reid. After last night’s sleepwalk in Seattle, it’s hard to feel good about Reid’s future in Philly. But then there’s this.  Quarterback Mike Vick has a fully guaranteed base…

Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 13 Predictions

Dave B. is back and better than ever with his Week 13 NFL fantasy football forecast for the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks matchup. Ben Obomanu could be in line for a breakout game. Marshawn Lynch will do what he does. Sidney Rice was put on IR today. Mike Williams is questionable to play but I am projecting like he will start. Get our Seahawks fantasy expert predictions every week…

Sleepy (and sore) in Seattle... Eagles must run the Time Zone gauntlet... ...

I happened to be on air with former NFL players Jonathan Ogden and Stan White a few days ago on WBAL-AM, and they both told me it takes at least four days after a game for most players just to get their bodies back to equilibrium in time to prepare for the next game... And yet, the NFL continues to put teams through the Thursday-after-a-Sunday game gauntlet... What makes it even...

Week 13 - Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

The Seahawks just improved to 5-7, and looked reasonably good doing it.  Browner managed to cut down on the penalties, Golden Tate and Zach Miller both got involved in the passing game, and Marshawn Lynch did his level best to earn that fat new contract he wants the Seahawks to give him when his current one expires at the end of the season.  What more could you ask for?
