Watching national coverage of sporting events involving Philadelphia teams the past several days has revealed a disturbing pattern: An upsetting amount of inexplicable cheesesteak references. Sports broadcasters, the fans of Philadelphia sports teams implore you: Learn something more about Philadelphia other than the fact that cheesesteaks are eaten in this city.
We may be seeing the future of the Philadelphia Eagles. And that future is green, silver, and slick. A photo of what is purported to be the new uniform for the team when Nike takes over the contract for NFL uniforms in 2012 has emerged, possibly providing a glimpse into the future outfit for the team.
What an emotional weekend. Both 2010 Super Bowl teams are out. The team once talked about as being possible a 2011 Super Bowl contender, Mike Vick and the Eagles, are out. We all predicted this, right?
It was a tumultuous weekend around the NFL. It's the reason football fans love the game and the kind of uncertainty that peaks the curiosity of the casual observer.
If you somehow haven't already heard about it, prepare yourself to hear about it all day. All week. And for the rest of your life. I am talking about the Miracle at the Meadowlands, part deux. The Eagles overcame a 21 point deficit in the fourth quarter of yesterday's game to win for the 6th straight time against the New York Giants with a 38-31 victory. The win was epic. Historic. The Eagles became the only team in NFL history to score 28 points in the fourth quarter of a game.
So much football, so little time. As always it was a busy and exciting weekend for NFL action, so let's get to it.

The second week of the 2010 football season is ending. In my eyes, it's going to be hard to top it. After last week's failings, both of my teams pulled through this week for wins. Though it wasn't pretty, the Eagles won with Michael Vick as quarterback. Even though "only" over Detroit, it is still a win. Big bro showed little bro who was boss in the Manning Bowl, and in so doing made me forget the pain that was the Colts season opener/slaughter by the Texans.
