I was going to start this article with a rant about the replacement officials, Roger Goodell, the owners, and Nickelback. Well, the replacement official issue has been resolved. So there goes that. Oh wait….Niceklback. Yeah, they suck. So I’m having a rough season so far. Really rough. But I’ve still got time to turn it [...]

That was fun. Let’s do it again. In fact, let’s do it several more times. I’m thinking until at least the beginning of February. It sure was fun to have football again. However, I must admit I’m not thrilled about Thursday Night Football starting so soon…it doesn’t give me much time to get these articles [...]

Oh I’ve missed this. I’ve missed this dreadfully. Baseball is fun (though it’s been a tough year to be a Phils fan), basketball is alright, hockey is nice, NCAA football is fantastic….but none of them hold a candle to the NFL. Oh yes, it’s back baby! Professional football is here and it’s been far too [...]

Well, we’ve known who the Eagles were going to play for quite some time now. However, the NFL has announced the regular season schedule, so now we know when each game will be. Here is the Eagles 2012 regular season schedule: Week 1 – Eagles @ Browns – September 9th, 1:00PM Week 2 – Ravens [...]

With the addition of DeMeco Ryans, the Eagles may likely hold off drafting a linebacker in the first round. If they do, one option that may be available to them is North Carolina linebacker Zach Brown. Brown stands at 6-1, 244 pounds and has outstanding speed. At the NFL Combine this year, Brown recorded a [...]

Although I’m looking forward to the championship games this Sunday, it’s still a little sad. No, not because the Eagles aren’t there. I’m over that. It’s sad because it’s the last weekend of the season where we’ll get to watch multiple NFL games on a Sunday. Oh well, we still have the Flyers and Sixers [...]

Since we’re just about crossing the halfway point of the NFL season, I wanted to take stock of the entire league by dishing out my thoughts in a power ranking setup. Mainly, I’m doing this because I would love to hear your guys’ comments and whether you agree or (most likely) disagree with anyone’s placement [...]

I will apologize upfront for not getting a league recap article out to you this week. I’m afraid that’s one of the many side effects of taking almost a full course load of production based classes. Last week I managed to scrape out another 12-4 record. I sensing a pattern here. As always, my picks [...]

Welcome to favorites week at BirdsFan.com! If you want to make your life easy by skipping this article, I’ll go ahead and tell you that I’m not taking a single underdog. I know, I know. It’s very boring of me. But, what can I say? I’m not going to pick someone I don’t think will [...]

This may be one of my best starts yet. Normally I stumble during one of the first two weeks. This season I went 12-4 each week. Here’s hoping the streak continues. It was a fun week 2 in the NFL with lots of points scored and not a lot of defense. However, where there was [...]

The giddiness is still very much alive. I just love this time of year. We have baseball and division races all over the place. We have college football (Go Temple! Beat Penn State!). And most importantly, we have the NFL. The giddiness will last all season. As with each week, I’m here to bring you [...]

Talk about a wild week one. You had some great defenses, some brilliant offenses, upsets, games coming down to the wire, and record setting performances. Man, I missed the NFL. Sign me up for ten more years of this. All in all, yours truly had a pretty good week. I’m not pleased with a few [...]

It’s been far too long. Seriously. It’s been too long. I’ve missed you all dearly. But now…FOOTBALL IS BACK! Oh yes, it is the most wonderful time of the year. You should know the drill by now. However, if you’re new, just relax. Every week I’m going to come at you with my weekly picks. [...]
