Carson Wentz with a McNabb-like avoid-and-heave for the early amazing TD

Wow! That's not a bad way to start a season for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

After a missed deep ball on the first play of the Eagles' offensive season, Wentz redeemed himself in an absolutely huge way on third and long.

Carson had decent time in the pocket but the pass coverage from the Redskins was pretty good. After his protection broke down a bit, Wentz made a couple of Redskins pass rushers miss in wildly impressive fashion before finding a wide open Nelson Agholor for the 58-yard touchdown.

It reminded me of the famous McNabb scramble and TD against the Dallas Cowboys back in the day.

7-0 Birds early in the first quarter and Eagles fans are feeling the excitement early!

This is... this is just embarrassing.

Maybe we'd be better off with Joe Lunchpail from the 700 level running Washington.

And Tony Williams should know better as he represents parts of South and West Philadelphia in his senate district.

We can probably give the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, a pass? Maybe? 

I don't know. This is just bad form.

This video from KYW's Mike DeNardo comes from an opening of a grocery store in the Grays Ferry section of Philadelphia. The politicos were trying to show some team spirit with the Eagles hosting the Vikings this week in the NFC Championship game. Hopefully, that game goes much better than this horrific chant attempt.

Philly police preparing for potential Super Bowl madness

Be prepared.

That’s the Boy Scout's motto, but it’s also the motto for the Philadelphia Police Department heading into this weekend’s NFC Championship Game at the Linc between the Eagles and Vikings.

Win or lose, there’s going to be a big reaction from fans once the game goes final and one of the locations the police expect a lot of activity is in the area of Frankford and Cottman Avenues.

Here’s the notice that was sent two days ago that was posted on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook Page.

Hopefully the fans will be out in full force to celebrate after the game this Sunday, but either way, we hope no people, property, or horses are harmed. However, it’s good to take these steps to be ready.
