  • Eagle sighting

    I was standing on the deck this morning and a big black eagle flew overhead....... it was big with something like a 5 foot wing span....

    I came back in and looked it up in my bird guide and it turns out to be a Turkey Vulture. I found this funny.
    Perhaps it is a sign..... who knows.....

    Yeah...that means the buzzards are already circling over St. Louis in preparation of the disappointing loss the Rams will have Monday night. They sure aren't circling over the 13-1 Eagles!

        You are obviously not a birder, Utter. Mistaking a turkey vulture for an eagle (bald or golden). Sheesh!

          I only saw it from underneath, and it was too big to be a hawk. It was impressive looking.

          JTrotter, this vulture is no where near St Louis. It is actually much closer to Eagle territory. The 13-1 Eagles could use a loss right about now to knock them down a little in preparation for a decent playoff run.

            I think he might have been circling over Martz' house!


            Seahawks, Eagles, Cardinals... I hate birds.

              Philadelphia no shoo in
              by txramsfan

              An ominous omen for a season with all the potential to fulfill promises, or an excuse for frantic Eagles fans to fret?

              Whether or not the sore right shoulder of Donovan McNabb proves to be a serious injury, the Eagles are hopeful McNabb can carry their offense in 2004. And after three consecutive failed attempts to journey beyond the NFC title game, the Eagles know any trip to Jacksonville is contingent on McNabb’s health.

              Andy Reid says he’s not worried. Even after a pair of organized team activities in which Jeff Blake was the team’s No. 1 quarterback (No. 2 QB Koy Detmer recently underwent knee surgery), Reid believes nothing that happens in June can hinder the team in January. Always spinning positives, Reid told the media the injuries to the top two quarterbacks allowed them to get Blake the prescribed number of reps.

              Sure, there is a lot of white space on the calendar between today and July 30, when veterans report to Eagles training camp, and we’re a full three months clear of the Eagles-Giants season opener. But the pressure of three failed bids to win the NFC title continues to build. If the Eagles’ window of opportunity is to remain open, Philadelphia has to show its fans the promised land.

              The Eagles have broken from their usual financial strategy of spending only on their own emerging, under-30 stars in the offseason. The additions of impact free-agent talent that includes DE Jevon Kearse and WR Terrell Owens cost the Eagles $26.3 million up front, two players who haven’t played a full season in either of their last two. But their impact could be profound, and it must be for the Eagles to realize their Super Bowl dreams in Jacksonville. Owens’ presence should benefit the offense twofold. Obviously, he gives the Eagles a much-needed No. 1 target. With Todd Pinkston and James Thrash serving as McNabb’s top options in years past, Owens is a major upgrade. With Champ Bailey out of the division, McNabb should never enter a Tuesday film session fretting over a divisional matchup with Bailey. The best corner in the division is probably second-year Cowboys LCB Terence Newman unless Will Peterson comes back at 100 percent for the Giants.

              Without the aid of an elite cornerback, every division foe should be expected to provide help in the form of a free safety or extra defensive back. Banking on steady double-teams on Owens is a major reason the Eagles are so amped about their running game. With a tremendous line of run blockers, expect breakout seasons from Correll Buckhalter and Brian Westbrook. Buckhalter has the build of an every-down back without being considered an upper-echelon runner. Reid and offensive coordinator Brad Childress plan to continue a rotation at the position, using scatback Westbrook as a change-of-pace back and do-it-all type. Reno Mahe...

              [Eagles] A DAY AFTER ... TIME TO REGROUP

              As Terrell Owens moves one day closer to surgery on his injured right ankle/leg, the Eagles have a game against St. Louis to prepare for and a playoff season to face without T.O.
              Reaction among the players to the news that Owens will be lost through the NFC playoffs was dramatic and the mood was upbeat: The Eagles will move on.

              "We know what T.O. means to the team. He's a great player and we hope he comes back and helps us," said wide receiver Freddie Mitchell, who is expected to start in Owens' absence. "At the same time, we're a team. We have other great players to step up in and fill the void. That's our approach. The games continue. We didn't get to 13-1 because of one player. We've had this situation before and we know how to overcome these kinds of injuries."

              Players like Greg Lewis have to step up
              Head coach Andy Reid has yet to announce his plans for the two remaining regular season games -- at St. Louis on Monday night and home with the Bengals on January 2. He'll want to look at his offense, one would presume, without Owens.

              That means the Eagles may continue to play quarterback Donovan McNabb a bit to develop timing and rhythm with other receivers, specifically second-year man Billy McMullen, who could hae a significant role in the final two games here.

              "That's the approach I would take," said ESPN analyst and former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski. "You want to have a little something going once you get to the playoffs. You don't want to be right there in a playoff situation not having any kind of game experience to fall back on. So I would imagine Andy will play Donovan a little bit on Monday night, just so he can get a few throws out to his new group of receivers.

              "I think it's a blow to lose T.O., but the Eagles are still the best team in the NFC. They still have weapons on offense. Brian Westbrook is still there. Andy and his staff are as good as anybody at scheming and coming up with favorable matchups. Not having T.O. makes it more difficult, but the coaching staff will find a way."

              Said wide receiver Greg Lewis: "Obviously T.O. is a big part of our team, but this just means we have other players who need to contribute. You have to be ready in the NFL. They always say you're one play away. The time is now to take the next step. We don't have T.O. around for a while to make plays. It's on us."

              These final regular season games are meaningless as far as the standings go, but they will provide a great testing group for the Eagles and the offense. Mitchell, Lewis, Todd Pinkston and McMullen now must be an even more integral part of the passing game.

              While it's unlikely the Eagles will unveil any new tricks in the next two weeks, they do want to have confidence in the attack...

              Too Little, Too Late For T.O.

              T.O. apologizes, but Eagles won't take him back

     news services

              Terrell Owens wants to return to the Eagles, but the team won't have him.

              A contrite Owens, hoping to overturn his dismissal from the Philadelphia Eagles, on Tuesday apologized to coach Andy Reid, quarterback Donovan McNabb, the team's owner and president, and fans.

              ESPN's Sal Paolantonio spoke to a top Eagles official, who told Paolantonio that Owens will not be rejoining the team. The official added that even if Owens' suspension is not upheld by an arbitrator, Owens will still not play for the Eagles this season.

              His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Owens was making a public apology in hopes of returning to the Eagles immediately.

              "We hope he plays again for the Philadelphia Eagles," Rosenhaus said.

              "I fight for what I think is right. In doing so, I alienated a lot of my fans and my teammates," Owens said, reading a statement outside his house in Moorestown, N.J., outside Philadelphia.

              "It really hurts me not to be a part of this team anymore," Owens said.

              Rosenhaus said Owens wants to return to the Eagles "ASAP."

              Owens on Monday was told by the team not to return this season. The decision resulted from "a large number of situations that accumulated over a long period of time, during which Terrell had been warned repeatedly about the consequences of his actions," Reid said.

              The All-Pro wide receiver didn't play in Sunday night's 17-10 loss at Washington, and will remain suspended for three more games without pay. After that, the Eagles plan to deactivate him for the rest of the season.

              He was suspended Saturday, two days after he said the Eagles showed "a lack of class" for not publicly recognizing his 100th career touchdown catch in a game on Oct. 23. In the same interview with on Thursday, Owens said the Eagles would be better off with Green Bay's Brett Favre at quarterback instead of McNabb.

              Owens apologized specifically to Reid, McNabb, Eagles president Joe Banner, owner Jeffrey Lurie and to fans.

              To McNabb, Owens said, "I apologize to him for any comments that may have been negative."

              And about this Philly crap!!!
              by RamWraith
              f I here one more media/football guru say how Philly gave us the game on Monday night I am going to puke and maybe even go postal!!

              Last time I checked we won against Philly's #1 defense. The only person that sat from that game was Kearse on that side of the ball. We have beat this team how many other times with the same exact offense that is on the field now. Without Owens the Eagles are the exact team we have been beating since 1999.

              So put that in your pipe and smoke it!!

              The Eagles should have beaten us on Monday night.
              by Rambos
              This could really come back and bit them. We are not the same team we where then just three weeks ago, not sure we belonged with the best of the best. But after the Eagles played soft against us and we won that game, here we are. We are a young, healthy, confident playoff team that has really just one two-playoff game in a row. We have momentum and we are getting better every week. The Eagles had the chance but decided to rest player. I’m not sure but we have won a big game ot two and with no TO hmmmm.
