Monday Night Football Week #2 Live-Blog: Washington at Philly Pregame/1st Quarter

Monday, September 17, 2007


Wow I log on just in time to catch this exchange on "Boiling Points".....

"One of those two seasons we went 0 and 2 was the strike year."- Parcells
"Oh I get it....so it was okay to go 0 and 2?"- Mortensen

Maybe I should watch this segment more often. Not because of exchanges like this, but because Ditka didn't really say much at all....that's a good thing. Thanks for joining me this fine evening....glad to have you and your comments. We'll kick this thing off as soon as the Eagles fans stop booing and chanting "EMM-ITT!"

"AA, I propose a new pool. Who is the first player from Michigan that Mike Tirico points out, and when does he do it? My vote is Jason Avant, 10 minutes into the game."- Anon

Okay I take that bet....I'm betting Jon Jansen's injury is mentioned before Avant.

"Let's send it to the Monday Night Football booth where they have all the answers"- Stu Scott
"We do? We're stupid has he not me all of us?- Mike Tirico

8:08- I think I like Ron Jaworski the on-air analyst rather than the on-camera personality. He's a little to "in everyone's face" when on television.

"Wolverine is strong. Wolverine is fast. Wolverine is ferocious. SO AM I."- Brian Dawkins

"at some point, i am going to live-blog your live-blog."- Lozo

I welcome it Lozo....why not start tonight? It's going to be fun.

"I love scrapple, I love snapper soup?, I love tasty cakes, and I love Philadelphia."- Bill Parcells

8:43- Kickoff time......thanks for joining me for this NFC tilt tonight folks. Great to have you. Let's do this thing.

Nevermind what was previously written in this spot.....I'm a dumbass. I'm up-to-date now, and the Skins pick up a third down on a nice pickup on the blitz by the o-line.

"Did you say exotic blitz scheme, like from a foreign Country?"- TK, just get the unfunny out of the way quick Tony.

Offsides on the Iggles, and unfortunately Eddie Gunz doesn't do two games in a row. Bad pass by Campbell on third down as he overthrows Cooley. Ugh. The Busboy is back to return and his fair-catch fake fools no one. D-McNabb's ball from his own five.

"
Exotic Blitzing. Wasn't that the name of the Viking Sex Boat party?"-Anon

I don't care who you are.....

8:57- Eagles Run on first down and get nothing. A quick slant for 6 to Curtis and it's third and short for Philly. Nice play over the middle to Westbrook and a first down. They've got that all day.

McNabb tries to pick on Carlos Rogers and it's incomplete.

"White Lightning Kevin Curtis."- Donovan McNabb, Hahaha....why didn't I think of that?

A holding penalty and a short pass get the Eagles to 3rd and long....this is where they're going to have to be for the Skins to keep this close. A pass to "White Lightning" is short of the first and the Iggles are punting. Rocca knocks it down inside the 20 and we're on to the Skins 2nd possession.

"I thought that Kevin Curtis was a "dependable possession receiver."- Anon

"White Lightning is always dependable."

9:05- A Portis run nets about 4 on first down. Another run gets another 4 and it's 4th and a long 2. Mike Sellers breaks two tough tackles and gets a well-deserved first down.

Ron and Tony are already talking over each other as Betts picks up another 5 yards.

"Please let me get back to that after this play."- Jaws
"Okay."- Tony K

Jaws is the analyst! Break yo'self!!!

Incomplete on Third and Two and another punt after some good gains by the Skins. Eagles ball at their own 29.

"The only thing that makes me happier than hearing "FORMER EAGLE James Thrash" would be "Former Eagle Sean Considine"."- RUTS, Oh okay, you're starting early Philly fans! It's on RUTS.

I love the bickering with Tony and Jaws already....it's like Joe never left the booth!

9:11- Incomplete on first down. A nice Westbrook 5 yard run on 2nd and the Eagles are in 3rd and long again. McNabb gets about 4 hours to throw the ball and is sacked by Marcus Washington. Eagles punt again.

Randle El muffs it! And he recovers his own miscue (Whew. All homerisms will be in parentheticals)

9:15- JC throws a gem to Moss for 48 yards on 1st down and the Skins finally make the first move. Nowhere for Portis on 1st down in Eagles territory and Yoder who gets one pass again drops it.

Thanks for the Shane Matthews reference Tirico. Dick.

Portis gets a catch for five up the middle to setup the FG

Tony talks about the View and I get sick to my stomach

"Elizabeth Hasselbeck is worth the turn of the dial wouldn't you say?"- TK

Hey guys....there's a Field Goal attempt going on. Too bad they missed it.

3-0 Skins.

"Hey everybody, there's a party over here so you might as well be here. Don't hold back..."- Anon

The Competitive Balance Is Fair!!!!

"Booo either give us erin andrews or give us nothing! viva la resistance!"- Razzledazzle

There's a lot of stuff in there you wouldn't normally ingest.

ESPN is now producing promo material for McNabb?

How much did he pay them for that?

The coin toss doesn't matter anymore, ESPN pimping something, anything, does.

Another reference to the Eagles fans cheering Reno Mahe. If that happened on a Sunday night, they'd be Keith's "Worst Person in the World."

Pittsburgh is my favorite racist Northern city. Also, Primanti sandwiches are the greatest late night drunk food ever.

Sep 17, 2007, 8:51:00 PM  

I love the commercial where the little kid is thrilled Michael Strahan came to his school. "My favwet pawt was evweefing!"

Yes, I know he's like seven.

Mitch Williams and Ron Hextall are the best Philly sports figures ever. Funny, crazy, kind of talented, and shitting the bed at the most inopportune times.

Sep 17, 2007, 8:53:00 PM  

just because someone dumped a beer on Korky's head doesn't mean it's a racist city.

there are other things that may cause that.

Primantis cure hangovers. Gabbagool and cheese.

Mmmmmm.

Vincent's pizza out on ardmore is good for that too...

Donovan is racist.

Thomas Tapeh should not be allowed to touch the ball. He'd drop his own balls if they weren't attached.

Sep 17, 2007, 8:55:00 PM  

Steak and cheese -- #2 best seller.

Sep 17, 2007, 8:56:00 PM  

I thought that Kevin Curtis was a "dependable possession receiver."

I'm partial to Dave Schultz.

// I thought that Kevin Curtis was a "dependable possession receiver." //

No, you're clearly thinking of Cris T. Jones.

Sep 17, 2007, 8:58:00 PM  

The steak in that steak and cheese has as much taste as the Italian bread.

Go with the pastrami or kolbassi.

I'll be in Da Burgh for the 9ers game, I'll have one for ya.

The only thing that makes me happier than hearing "FORMER EAGLE James Thrash" would be "Former Eagle Sean Considine".

Does Tony K. realize how shitty and undependable Santana Moss and Randle El are? Have you ever owned Santana in fantasy football? It's 13 weeks of 2 catches, 13 yards and three 150+ yard games.

Sep 17, 2007, 9:00:00 PM  

Cris Carter was another great Philly Sports Legend. Almost.

No, I just like Cris T. Jones references. Really, it was him or Na Brown.

You know why I really miss Pittsburgh? Those assholes even put french fries in salads.

Sep 17, 2007, 9:02:00 PM  

i would have started tonight, but i actually had things to do. since that usually isn't the case, i can almost guarantee a live-blog live-blog in the next 15 weeks.

It was the receivers' fault that McNabb completed 15 of 33 passes last week.

fortunately, you can get real cheese on steaks at places like pat's if you ask.

McNabb's 3rd down pass in the end zone is about 10 feet too high.

Let me guess. The receiver should have tried to jump on the defender's shoulders.
