Eagles vs. Raiders Preseason Live-Blogging

The HOF game is set to take place 8:00 PM tonight, and I will be here discussing the game live throughout the night. In the event I perish before the game tonight, the live-blogging will go on a scheduled. That's how I would've wanted it.


David Akers' performance last year against the Raiders, was the greatest by any kicker. You heard me, New England.

HA HA HA Akers- Great. You crack me up kiddo

Creek! said...

Watching the pregame on the NFL Network. Just got DirecTV yesterday, and it's working out nicely thus far.

Steve Mariucci is the other pregame guy with Rich Eisen. How long 'till he gets another coaching job?

1 hour until gametime.

Creek! said...

Brian Dawkins crontract extension through '08 makes me overjoyed. He's absolutely the heart & soul of the team.

Creek! said...

Al Davis pwning Adam Schefter was good fun. My grandfather was so much like Al Davis it's amazing.

Apparently Rich Eisen & Schefter put a piano in front of Mooch's door last night. Then they raced back to the Delta house for a toga party.

Toga, toga, toga!

Creek! said...

What is it about a camera that makes people wave? Are we supposed to wave back? I don't get it.

So the guys at the NFL Network don't have to stand for the national anthem? That's not fair, if we have to stand for that lame, played out song, every one else does.

Creek! said...

Holy crap on a stick... The Eagles are going to be playing football again. God, how I missed this. I Missed Jeremiah Trotter, Brian Dawkins, Donovan McNabb... New season, new hope. One city, one team, one dream. Play ball.

Creek! said...

The butterflies are back, baby!

My stretch of a few months as a reasonable, sane human being are done. I am once again reduced to a sub-human fanboy, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Whoever decided the Eagles should be in the 1st preseason game is openly trying to kill me.

wikkidpissah said...

did u take ur ritalin, creekie?

Creek! said...

Nope, I'm as nervous & excited as an amish boy buying his 1st hooker.

wikkidpissah said...

i hear that's an electric feeling for the amish

Creek! said...

For some reason the addition of Darren Howard slipped my mind until the introductions. Another interesting subplot for the Iggles this year.

Creek! said...

Great push by Darren howard. Great way to open the game.

And by the way, anyone expecting me to talk about the Raiders is crazy. I'm a homer, and damn proud.

wikkidpissah said...

what kinda snax does a diabetic have at football games?

Creek! said...

I usually chow down on Doritos or chips & salsa.

Been on a bit of a diet this summer though, lost about 15 pounds. No chips until the regular season.

What DOESN'T a 400+ pound 50 year old, down on his luck, ex-poker dealer eat during a football game?

Creek! said...

Seeing Donnie in the shotgun is very weird. they started running it last year a bit last year before he got hurt.

wikkidpissah said...

well, i had a nice bowl of green chile fettucine b4 the game & now i'm just cruncin on some roasted virgin fingernails as i watch.

go iggles. i'm a Baskett case!

Creek! said...

Holy crap. I hope Coach Reid isn't teasing me with all those running plays this drive. This could be a fun year after all...

Creek! said...

I had some skeds & meatballs that filled me up quite sufficiently. And get away from my hand!

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

westy looked nice, the defense looked strong, baskett and brown making catches. perfect drive

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

arch is one of the only LR members that hasn't been on the NFFL draft today and he is the only one to make a pick so far

Creek! said...

T. Cole, baby!

He's gonna be a stud in a couple years.

Reno Mahe is my perfect punt returner. May not be a homerun guy, but always gets yards, and is smart.

Creek! said...

Good, get Donnie out of there.

Creek! said...

As for the NFFL draft, I'm up 11th, who do you think will be available that I should take?

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

definitely creek, I read an article about what JJ is doing as coordinator this year and he said this is the fastest defense he has had here and he has some new and exciting things that he is doing with a 3 man line. it makes me excited

wikkidpissah said...

i'd be lookin to go frerotte @ 11 & echemandu @ 14

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

as for your pick creek, I would target maybe edge if he slips, westbrook would prolly be my pick especially because of the ppr. Rudi Johnson is another good option

Creek! said...

You're a dick, Wikkid.

Nice to see J.R. Reed out there. Hopefully he's returning kickoffs.

JBond said...

Man, this website sort of blows. Anyways, Raiders don't look so good. Looks like my sleeper team is crapping it up.

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

interception YESSSSSSS

wikkidpissah said...

that's what makes me a wikkidpissah!

Creek! said...

Remember when Rod Hood made Randy Moss his bitch on MNF a few years back?

I <3 Reno Mahe.

JBond said...

And yes, Jeff Garcia still sucks...

Creek! said...

Jeff Garcia threw that pass like a gay.

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

interception NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

the guy that is up in my draft hasn't been on the site for almost a week.

Creek! said...

Here's hoping Ty wins LCS.

Wikkid, found a new place to work, every other wednesday. Starting with this upcoming one.

JBond said...

Does anyone else HATE how the NFFL site is set up? Ugh, setting up the draft card blows and I can't figure anything out.

Creek! said...

You in the USFL, Bond? On the same site, so I've dealt with this type of draft before.

I thought C. Anderson would be a huge sleeper last year. Had 2 tds the 1st week, then shit.

wikkidpissah said...

its an odd setup, jbond. i just hope there arent a lot of glitches cuz its such a great idea & draft glitches would just cave it in.

cool, creekie - where is it?

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

Jbond, NFFL site is set up wierd, but to accomadate 192 teams it has to be difficult, I understand your thoughts about the draft card. I used this site before, but we did a live draft and then inputted the information

JBond said...

Errr...I think I'm in the NFFL? Pittsburgh 4? I'm confused by everything on their. Real weird, but it is a GREAT idea.


Anyways, when do I get to write on this thing?

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

if you want to search my team out on that site is RHD, click on it then hold the mouse over my leagues and then check out 2002 and 2003, I was league champ and runner up as T & A

Creek! said...

Deerfield. Right near my dad's office, so it's pretty convenient. It's a sports bar, but one of my comic friends started an open mic all the serious local guys that happens more frequent than once a month. Don't have to bring any guests either.

JBond said...

Time to go eat some wings, I'll catch up later

Creek! said...

Reno Mahe is better than you.

Why don't we have any bigger backs this year, Prof?

wikkidpissah said...

good deal, lil buddy

so much goin on - this, nffl draft & a friend/customer is in 33rd place in the WSOP

Creek! said...

One thing about Garcia, he throws a nice dump off pass. Almost the opposite of McNabb.

wikkidpissah said...

wow, rotoworld just advertised on 60 mins!

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

I think that andy is real high on perry and buck being our big guy backs, I still think we should get john wells.

Creek! said...

David Akers, like gangbusters, bitch.

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

akers is money even without koy as the holder

wikkidpissah said...

that's it, lil buddy - take akers @ 11!

Creek! said...

I've grown a neck beard in memory of our boy, Koy.

wikkidpissah said...

aikman's sooo cute when he cries

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

jbond what is with pitt 3 taking steven jackson over LT

Creek! said...

Justin Fargas, mediocre Michigan safety, turns into the starting running back on USC's 1st nation title team of the 00's. The prick.

wikkidpissah said...

awright - here's my boyee. andy makes probowl b4 creek gets laid

i just had a pw that, phonetically, spelt vijay's boner

Creek! said...

If only I thought I could win that bet...

wikkidpissah said...

maybe the answer is in vijay's boner

Creek! said...

Donnie's Jeff Garcia's roomie?

"Nighty night, keep ya butthole tight."

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

jeff garcia is awful

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

fargas' dad is Huggy Bear

Creek! said...

Justin Fargas' dad is Snoop Dogg?

Ahahaha! I'm so young & ignoran!

Southie Savant aka jimed said...

Was up bitches? Its 4 am & I'm goin to bed, but had to pop in & say hey.

Pat, knock em dead on open mic night.
Boss, get a job
Prof, Was up?

That NFFL site blows.....

Nighty nighty

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

sleep tight jim

wikkidpissah said...

sleep tight - dont let the stingers bite!

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

that was the best thing that chris collingsworth has ever said about the eagles

JBond said...

I don't know, I don't know what any other Pittsburgh teams are doing. Man, I'm going crazy...

wikkidpissah said...

when will bucky be ready?

"Dude, you get that link? No, not the Rotoworld one, the one with soaking wet asian teenagers riding merry-go-rounds... You got it? Pretty freakin' hot, heh?!?!?!

mr ellipsis said...

Too early for pro ball, already agitated waiting for #2 to pick.

24 hour timer my ass ...

mr ellipsis said...

Patty boy, congrats on the gig.

You are so in the bag for the Iggles, it's kinda cute.

Hail to the Redskins!

Creek! said...

'Skins are my SB pick for this year, unfortunately.

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

I haven't even come close to my first round pick

still waiting for #2 overall to pick

wikkidpissah said...

s'new, ahem?

wikkidpissah said...

one guy in front of me, hopin he takes p-man, rudi, ned...i can smell the edge from here

mr ellipsis said...

Creek, I got Caddy at #11 in my pre-draft rankings, with Edge just before and Willis just after.

Looks like you'll be waiting for a while ...

Creek! said...

Matt McCoy looks good. Has more speed than I remember.

Creek! said...

J.R. Reed in the hizzouse.

Professor Ellis D Trails said...

timmy chang baby, hawaii is in da house

Creek! said...

Baseketball reference!!!

God bless Bob Costas.

Looks like this discussion is over. Thanks to those of you who stopped by. Happy football.

mr ellipsis said...

I watched about 90 seconds of Tiu at QB, that's about all I can stand.

Speaking of unwatchable, the NFFL draft reminds me of a snail I watched one day, just for fun ...

mr ellipsis said...

NFFL update ... Peyton Manning has been drafted:

- 5th in draft 1
- 8th in draft 3
- 7th in draft 10

The first one really is too much. Next guy is counting his blessings with Tiki at #6.

JBond said...

Looks like Bruce Perry just lost his season again. Definite shame

mr ellipsis said...

How did Lamont Jordan look tonight? Did I miss anything?

JBond said...

Lamont didn't do much, but he had one real nice run where he hurdled a guy and broke a tackle. Looking good.
