You wanted the bulls-eye you got the bulls-eye. It was only a preseason game but it lead off Sportscenter. The NFL dream team the Philadelphia Eagles got beat by the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-14 in a game where Michael Vick threw 3 interceptions in the first quarter. It's only preseason though right? Kinda like Allen Iverson n practice.
The Miami Heat of the NFL is showing us something, even if it is preseason. They are showing us there is a pretty good chance they are not going to handle the pressure of being the most hated team in the NFL.
I am going to say it loud and clear; the Eagles are overrated. Take it from a Dallas Cowboys fan who had to hear for the past 3 of 5 years that the Cowboys are going to be Super Bowl favorites only to see that star get smacked off the helmet year in and year out.
The Eagles come off as such douchebags that the Patriots are being ignored and loved, all at the same time. Tom Brady gets the supermodel wife and Ocho Cinco? Michael Vick was already in hot water this week when Vick said he wanted to sign with other teams and not the Eagles, but Goodell lead him to Philly. Sounds fishy. What if they actually win the Super Bowl? Already karma is working against them.
The Green Bay Packers are built to get back into the playoffs and defend their championship. The NFC East where the Eagles are at? It will be the Cowboys coming out in that division. They have a new head coach in Jason Garrett who has 2 super bowl rings to motivate Romo, Whitten, Austin, Dez, Felix, Choice, Ware, Spears, Ratliff and more.
It was only preseason but if you can't handle a preseason game being the target, how can you handle the regular season? See me in January and let's see if the Eagles are still being talked about in the Super Bowl.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Keep Dreaming
BET is about to give Michael Vick his own reality show.
What do you think about that?-Dr.FB
OK, so here we are week 2 of the season and time for me to make more predictions or what not...just for fun.
Let's see if anything I said last week is true yet;
I said Tom Brady would be Tom Brady and he has. I said Donavon McNabb would get hurt sometime this season and Vick would start. Mcnabb is not playing tomorrow because he is hurt. Michael Vick, however, cannot play until week 3. I picked San Francisco to upset the NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals and they did. So far, you can call me butter because I am on a roll.
Now, let's get to some questions? Are the Panthers that bad? Are the Eagles that good? We will find out with Carolina this week but since the Eagles do not have Donavon, we won't know.
The game of the week is Cowboys/Giants. It would have been Saints/Eagles if not for McNabb. Tony Romo and the Cowboys open the new Texas Stadium with over a 100,000 fans and the site of the 2011 Super Bowl.
Upsets of the week: Jags over Cards, Rams over Washington, and Baltimore over San Diego. (I really wanted to choose Miami over Indy tomorrow but since it is a Monday Night Game, I chose the Ravens.)
If the Jets didn't talk so much smack, I woulda picked them to upset the Patriots. But talking smack about Tom Brady and the Patriots before a game is like breaking wind on a first date in the presence of your date; You. Just. Don't. Do. It.
Again, this is all in fun and if you have anything you want to add regarding football and the games, please go ahead and do.
Bon Jovi still has not been announced as performers of this years halftime show. Let's make it happen! Have a great Sunday and Go Cowboys!-Dr.FB
We are happy to say that Hank Baskett, after being released from the Eagles to make room for Michael Vick, is now a Colt.
The wide receiver signed with the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday and I am sure Kendra Wilkinson is relieved, although I bet she wishes he was a San Diego Charger, her favorite team.
On paper, the Colts are a more successful team, and with the division they have, do have a chance of making it. The Eagles are already the cream of the crop with a lot of experts picking them to make to the NFC Championship and possibly the Super Bowl.
Regardless, we are happy for Kendra and Hank that he is now employed again.-Dr.FB
With a baby on board, it's not good when your husband loses his job and that is what happened to Girls Next Door Playboy superstar Kendra Wilkinson man yesterday.
Michael Vick of the Philadelphia Eagles was activated yesterday to be on the roster, but they can only have 53 players on the roster, and Hank Baskett, Kendr'a man, was cut from the team. Ouch.
I am sure with Kendra's show and other ventures she is doing, they will be fine. Baskett's career is not close to over but it will be a game of wait and see if another wide receiver from another team gets cut or not.
We hope that Hank gets picked up soon for his sake and the baby's sake.-Dr.FB
Football season is here...finally. I have some thoughts and predictions to share with you and I want to know your favorite team. Mine is the Dallas Cowboys and they are going.....nowhere. Here are some other predictions and things I am looking forward to;
SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW: BON JOVI
Hear. Me. Out. You can knock Bon Jovi all you want but you know they have more hits than an adult film site. They have earned their due and if they are not the Halftime Show this year, it will be highly disappointing. The boys from Jersey baby.
THE MADDEN CURSE LIVES: Troy from the Pittsburgh Steelers is on the cover. He is out 6 weeks and it is a painful injury.
BRETT FAVRE's CONSECUTIVE GAME STREAKS ENDS SOMETIME THIS YEAR: Favre's record will fall as he will get hurt.
DETROIT LIONS WIN FIRST GAME IN WEEK 3: The Lions will beat the Washington Redskins week 3 and upset the Bears in week 4. Just watch.
TOM BRADY WILL BE TOM BRADY: The New England Patriots will be the team they were before Tom left. Speaking of which, when do you win 11 games and miss the playoffs? Wow.
FANTASY FOOTBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Aaron Rodgers. You guys are going to laugh now but the guy is going to get you over 30 td's and 5-7 rushing td's. Packers are scary. Super Bowl scary.
MICHAEL VICK WILL START A GAME FOR THE EAGLES: When was the last time McNabb was healthy for 2 years in a row? Just sayin'.
AFC DIVISION WINNERS: New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers, (Wild Card: Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills)
NFC Division Winners: Dallas Cowboys (not really but it's my team!), Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, (Wild Card: Minnesota Vikings, San Francisco 49ers)
You won't believe who I have in the Super Bowl but one of the teams will have my fantasy football player of the year on it.
WEEK 1 UPSETS: Carolina over Philly, Jacksonville over Indy, San Francisco over Arizona.
I am doing this for fun, so you guys can give me some hell over it, but a lot of what I say will happen. Peace! Bon Jovi in 2010 baby!-Dr.FB
(Good luck to everyone's team!)
Wow. An NFL team actually signed Michael Vick. The Philadelphia Eagles signed Michael Vick to a two year contract. Guess we know now where PETA will be protesting.
He will get $1.6 million this year and if they resign him, $5.2 million next year.
Michael Vick served 23 months in prison for the killing of dogs and dog fighting.
What do you think of this?-Dr.FB
