Jaws joined me as well as Roy Burton and Kris Domingo of the Broad Street Line podcast to talk Eagles quarterbacks, Chip Kelly, his famous nickname and its connection with the Philadelphia Sixers and and an exciting announcement about the Philadelphia Soul. You’ll ...

I don’t see the big deal about this, I use to eat lunch in my car all the time when I was working in corporate America. Sometimes you do need some “me time” away from your bosses.
It appears from the report by Pro Football Talk, some of Nnamdi teammates didn’t like his quirky and aloof ways and are now leaking them to the media. They are doing it anonymously of course.

After 8 seasons with the Oakland Raiders–3 of which he went to the Pro Bowl–Asomugha was thought to be the biggest free agent signing during the 2011 offseason as he was among many headline acquisitions by the Eagles. He joined a secondary that already included former...
