Eagles 20, Broncos 52, Sunday, September 29, 2013 Why the title of this post? That was my thought when John Fox took Peyton Manning out of the game early in the fourth quarter. I mean, come on, we all knew this was going to be ugly. But this was UGLY. U-G-L-Y you ain’t got no alibi UGLY. Stud of the week: seriously, dude, I don’t even know. Everything was a mess. The offense couldn’t score in the red zone. Alex Henery missed another field goal. The defense was like: “Did you see Peyton Manning? He’s so DREAMY…” when they weren’t celebrating the fact that, I don’t know, they actually managed to make a tackle for once. Jeff Maehl? And I can’t even find a picture of his TD, so I guess you’ll just have to enjoy this photo from training camp. We’re in the midst of getting our floors refinished, so Chef Spouse moved both the TVs and his iMac down to my Philadelphia Eagles woman cave. Which means we were able to watch all three of the NFC East games in the 4 pm timeslot yesterday. After watching the Giants get whupped by the Chiefs at 1 (mark my words, Andy Reid will sweep the NFC East this year). I gotta say: our division is NOT GOOD. Going into the season, I was hoping the Eagles would go 8-8. One, if they can manage that, they might just win the division. Two, I’m increasingly uncertain they can even go 8-8. Every phase was a failure. OK, I get it: they’ve won a divisional game, lost to two 4-0 teams, and dropped a game they could’ve won to the 2-2 Chargers. It was the tough part of the schedule. And the NFC East is so putrid this year that the Eagles could grab six wins in the division (it’s not impossible). And, going from bad to worse, how exactly did we manage to draw the idiot twins to cover the game, with the Cowboys playing the Chargers in San Diego? BGN points out that Joe Buck is just unlikable, and Troy Aikman sounds “sleepy.” Uh, he was the Cowboys QB in ’90s. He’s not sleepy – he’s not bored – he’s STONED.
