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
Moments after the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles, Jessica Simpson tweeted "she never stopped rooting for the Cowboys" along with a picture of her wearing a cowboys sweatshirt.
Although Tony Romo and her split up earlier this year, Jessica and even her father Joe Simpson have not stopped supporting MY Dallas Cowboys.
One has to wonder what Jessica Simpson will tweet after the Dallas Cowboys play the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. I know Minnesota loves their Vikings, and Minnesota, you know I got love for you big time. However, you know this Sunday, I will be with team Simpson rooting for the Dallas Cowboys.
Here is a photo of Jessica returning back to Los Angeles on Monday. Man, she has some small wrists, doesn't she?
Jess, if you are going to be in Los Angeles on Sunday, let me know. I have a great place to watch the Cowboys at.-Dr.FB
I don't know about you but for the last 2 weeks, my local Fox networks have been airing commercials that starting New Years, Time Warner Cable will be dropping all Fox network shows.
Fox wants to start charging for it's local channels, which in Los Angeles, they have 2 and it would add up to about a $1.00 per month per cable subscriber. Time Warner had a battle with Nickelodeon in 2008 and was settled after the deadline. About 10 years ago, ABC and Time Warner got into it where Time Warner did pull ABC and ABC affiliated networks.
Time Warner has struck deals with everyone in the past but the NFL Network and in some way, this Fox deal has a lot to do with the NFL on Fox.
Fox owns DirecTV, which earlier this year renewed with the NFL to carry the games only on DirecTV. This makes the 3rd time this decade that before the deal was over, it was extended to where Time Warner and other cable companies could not bid to get the NFL package. This could be Time Warner not budging just in spite.
It makes Fox look greedy and no one in this economy is going to side with Fox if they knew what it was about. But they don't, which most likely has a lot of people signing up to keep Fox on Time Warner.
I am sure a deal will be in place before American Idol debuts it's new season on Fox in mid-Janaury. However, the bowl games and the NFL game that is expected to go to 80 percent of the nation this Sunday where the Philadelphia Eagles travel to play the Dallas Cowboys with the division and playoff positions are on the line, you just may not get.
The contract expires Thursday. Whose side do you take on this; Fox or Time Warner?-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
