The Morning After

Eagles 24 Bears 20: The Birds finally pulled out a close one, taking down the Bears 24-20 in Soldier Field.  Doc was at the game and can hopefully fill us in on the Chicago atmosphere – I get the feeling they don’t really like this Cutler guy.  Was it me, or did the fans boo EVERY running play called?  It was great.  Anyway, I actually liked what I saw from the offense last night.  Solid running game, Donovan on point (for the most part), and good play from the O-line.  The turnovers were a huge problem in the second half, but it was good to see LeSean McCoy not let his fumble bother him too much on their next possession. McCoy should have had his first career 100-yard rushing game, but on the Eagles last running play he lost a yard and finished with 99 on the day.  Doc – you lost 4 points in fantasy on that one play, if you lose by 4 or less,  you know who to blame.  Donovan was 23-32 for 244 yards on the night - DeSean Jackson caught 8 of those balls for 107 yards. Next week is the Redskins, should be a blowout.


No.6 Villanova 79 Ole Miss 67:  Scottie Reynolds scored 21 points to help the Wildcats beat Mississippi 79-67 on Sunday night. Corey Stokes dropped 18 and Antonio Pena added 17 points and 16 rebounds on the way to ‘Nova winning the Puerto Rico Tip-Off in San Juan.  The Big East favorites held Ole Miss to 29.6 percent shooting from the field on their way to improving to 5-0 on the season.  On an unrelated note, I had no idea Taylor King was white until last night.    


No.7 Purdue 85 St. Joe’s 60: JaJuan Johnson had 18 points and 10 rebounds and the No.7 ranked Boilermakers used a 23-3 run after halftime to pull away and beat St. Joseph's 85-60 on Sunday night in the Paradise Jam. The Hawks had a nine-point lead in the first half, but missed nine of their first ten shots in the second half and let Purdue pull away for the big win. Garrett Williamson led all St.Joe’s scorers with 12 points.

  1. Could you imagine what the announcers would have been saying if the Eagles fans were booing like that after every throw?

    They would used the words "snowball", "Santa Claus" and "Michael Irvin neck injury" over and over again to show what bad fans we are.

    But, I guess it's okay to do that in Chicago...
