Ray Didinger and Marcus Hayes Go At It On DNL

Ray Didinger and Marcus Hayes Go At It On DNL

The Daily News Live gang was discussing the effectiveness of the Eagles running game when Hall of Fame writer Ray Didinger didn't like the way Philadelphia Daily News columnist Marcus Hayes responded to what Diddy had to say.

Didinger is known for being balanced and measured, a veritable Eagles encyclopedia, as well as someone who tries to deal only in the realm of fact and reasonable opinion, rather than being reactionary or writing to stir his audience to visceral reactions. Hayes is no slouch either, but at least in my opinion, he often seeks to stir the pot on both DNL and with his columns (one example here).

Diddy brought out the fact the Eagles averaged 6+ yards per carry in the first half against the Patriots -- a stat Hayes thinks doesn't mean all that much. Hayes believes that when teams know the Eagles are going to run, they've been successful in stopping them. Is this true? Hard to say without looking into it further. But Diddy then says you should pass when they're lined up with nine men in the box. Makes sense?

Hayes lets out a big sigh which leads to Diddy saying, "Please, don't roll your eyes at me, okay?"

See, the Eagles' putrid season brings out the sometimes-flimsy arguments of guys like Hayes which in turn angers legends like Ray Diddy. At least we get this entertaining quasi-smackdown as a result.

I tend to think Diddy makes a stronger argument here. I was watching from the second deck with a beer in hand on Sunday, but was Vince Young "atrocious?"

One particular Twitterer was quite entertained:

Eagles fan who ran into subway pole alive!

Eagles fan who ran into subway pole alive!

Updated: 6:31 p.m.

An Eagles fan whose attempt to rally subway passengers for a playoff game ended with him running into a concrete pole says he's doing OK and a viral video shows the "passion" of Philly fans.

Jigar Desai said his pain eased with the Eagles' 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game Sunday night.

The mishap occurred while Desai was heading to the game after having a few drinks while watching the New England Patriots defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game.

The 42-year-old Eagles season ticket holder from suburban Philadelphia said he got pumped up watching a group of Eagles fans on a train heading in the opposite direction and wanted to get them excited. Video captured Desai, wearing a Brian Dawkins jersey, running with the train car — then hitting the pole and bumping into the train.

"Yeah, I hit the pole, but the passion is there," Desai said. "It reflects the passion of the entire city. We are good fans. Yeah, there are a couple of bad apples in the mix, in any city you're going to find that, but I think as a whole we have supported this team for years and years and years. I think this city is ready to bring home the hardware."

The Eagles will face the Patriots, the reigning NFL champions, in the Super Bowl on Feb. 4. It'll be the 10th appearance in the Super Bowl for the Patriots but just the third for the Eagles, who've never won it.

Desai, who described himself as a "10-pound baby from India" who moved to Pennsylvania when he was a child, said his postgame celebration was a lot tamer and he went to his job at a pharmaceutical company on Monday, although he was a bit sore. He said he may go to the doctor on Tuesday.

The subway platform run was perhaps the most viral moment from Sunday's festivities in Philadelphia, which included video of fans climbing light poles slicked with Crisco, Eagles fans throwing beer at Vikings fans and a fan arrested for punching a police horse.

"I'm not throwing bottles or punching horses," Desai said. "It was just running into a pole."

If you somehow haven't seen the video, or want to see it again, here it is.

Here's something you may not have seen, that's right, a second angle!
