Vince Young's remarks put added pressure on the Philadelphia Eagles and the 'dream' could turn into a nightmare if the O-line can't protect Vick
Now that the Eagles’ best place kicker in history, David Akers, is kicking for the 49ers, the Eagles’ kicking game is a major question mark. The duties will be handled by rookies — Alex Henery, the kicker and Chas Henry, the punter. Neither of them looked like world-beaters in the pre-season. My guess is that Akers will be missed.
The coverage units should be solid again this year, and third string back, rookie Dion Lewis, might be a special talent on kickoff and punt returns. He was one of the most impressive Eagles in the pre-season.
Eagles 2011-2012 Schedule
The game-by-game breakdown: With two dome games on the road and the O-line concerns, I look for a win over the Rams in week one, followed by a loss at Atlanta. The Eagles come home to beat the Giants and 49ers (welcome back David Akers), then should beat the Bills in Buffalo and the Redskins in Washington for an impressive 5-1 start. After the bye week, they will beat the Cowboys and Bears, and give Kevin Kolb a rude reception as they defeat the Cardinals. Next will be a loss on the road to the Giants and at home to the Patriots. They will beat the Seahawks and Dolphins on the road, then lose at home to the Jets, followed by a loss on the road at Dallas. They will finish the regular season with a win at home over Washington. That’s 11-5.
Call me crazy, but I expect them to make to the NFC Championship game, win it over the Packers, and lose to the AFC champions, Pittsburgh. I did go there, a Keystone State Super Bowl.

There are lots of cool storylines in the Big Game again, and plenty of local places that make for a fun hangout — even if you care more about the commercials than the contest itself.
Since football season started, Harry’s has been a popular place for game watching both indoors, where it feature a 40-seat bar with nine HDTV flat-screens and several adjacent cocktail tables, and an outdoor bar/patio area that’s been a hit with those who prefer al fresco football watching.
There are a lot of amateur pigskin prognosticators out there and when the football season arrives, area casinos afford numerous opportunities to cash in on your football knowledge with various “pick-the-winners” promotions.
Head coach Andy Reid and the rest of the brass hate when a certain “R” word is used to describe the 2010-11 Philadelphia Eagles. That dreaded word is “rebuilding.”
Including shots from Taste of the Quarter, Eagles Cheerleaders at Margate fundraiser, Guitar Shorty on the A.C. Boardwalk, the Atlantic City Air Show, Stevie Nicks, and more.

Sunday night we found out that the Redskins have made Donovan McNabb their starting quarterback.
They might be unknowns on the West Coast or in Texas, but in the Delaware Valley, comedian and WIP radio late-night host Big Daddy Graham, and comedian-impressionist Joe Conklin are regional treasure...
