Found December 27, 2011 on Mr. Irrelevant:
Here with a guest post is drewtabaga, who won our Redskins-Jets Predictions contest a while back. This past August ESPN ran a story claiming that Michael Vick’s 2010 MNF destruction of the Redskins was the greatest fantasy performance by a quarterback since 1950, besting even George Blanda and Y.A. Tittle’s seven-touchdown games from the 1960s. (Blanda and Tittle each would’ve earned 48 fantasy points by standard ESPN and Yahoo! scoring; Vick had 49.) That story had one glaring omission. On 11/10/1991, about 19 years prior to the 11/15/2010 Monday Night Massacre, Mark Rypien put up a stat line that looked like this: 16/31, 442 yards, six touchdowns, zero interceptions, four yards rushing and one rushing touchdown. So, if we bust out the calculator (25 passing yards = one point, one passing touchdown = four points, 10 rushing yards = one point, one rushing TD = six points), Ryp won some manually scoring fantasy nerd 48.08 points that day. Rypien’s day is more impressive when you con...

Eagles blew many chances this season

For all those super expectations, all the preseason hype, all the big-name additions, the Philadelphia Eagles are left to ponder all that went wrong. Despite their late-season surge - a three-game winning streak - the Eagles (7-8) aren't going to the playoffs. That's the reality for this Dream Team. So before they begin looking ahead to next season, they're thinking...

Eagles trying to finish at .500

A meaningless regular-season game for the Philadelphia Eagles usually means resting their starters for the playoffs. Not this year. The Eagles (7-8) are going home after their game Sunday against the Washington Redskins (5-10). It's the first time since 2007 they didn't make the playoffs and just the fourth time it's happened in coach Andy Reid's 13 seasons. That...

Why The Philadelphia Eagles Should Draft A QB Now

It's one year into the new Michael Vick era in Philly after trading away Kevin Kolb and all indications point to the eagles making the right call.So, the question before us is do the Philadelphia Eagles need to consider selecting a quarterback in the early rounds of the April 2012 NFL Draft?Absolutely. By no means is quarterback the only need in Philly. They need help at...

Hog Heaven Opponent Scouting: the Philadelphia Eagles, part two

Apparently, no one wants to face the Philadelphia Eagles right now.  Winners of three straight, the Eagles are flying high.  And are eliminated from the playoffs.  Not that we should let the facts get in the way of a fun story.And so the Washington Redskins will be the final opponent faced by the Philadelphia Dream Team in 2011.  That's not a guarantee I am making that the...

Eagles 2011: A Year that started with anticipation faulted too many times to recover

Michael Vick would be the starter for a full season. The defensive backfield of Nnamdi Asomugha, Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would make up for the inexperience and size of the linebackers.Nnamdi Asomugha was one of the premier free agent safeties in free agency and quickly after the lockout was settled, the Eagles signed him.And DeSean Jackson would play well enough...

Philadelphia Eagles 20, Dallas Cowboys 7

The Philadelphia Eagles knocked out Tony Romo early in this game and it was easy sailing after that.  Michael Vick was very solid throwing the ball as he connected on 18 of 32 passes for 293 yards with 2 TD passes and 0 INTs.  He also carried the ball 3 times for 10 yards (3.3 ypc) in this game.  Lesean McCoy (13 carries for 35 yards) and Ronnie Brown (8 carries for 33 yards)...

NFC East: Underrated But Still Dangerous

I reading and hearing a lot of NFC East bashing these days and I’m not quite sure if these people are just haters or complete morons. Yes, the NFC East had a down season. Any half-wit can see that. But they should also realize that the NFC East will be one of the league’s best divisions in 2012. Riddle me this….does anyone want to play Philadelphia this week? I don’t see...
