DeSean Still Feeling Effects of Concussion?!?

By this time you have either heard or read about DeSean Jackson's First Take Interview.

I really don't put much stock into anything DeSean does off the field.  As long as the guy steps up on Sundays (heck, I'd even take him staying on the field) I am OK with ignoring his rap albums, back flips into pools, and unwarranted support of Michael Vick as the Eagles starting QB this season.

What I do have a hard time overlooking is his comment about the Eagles being a top-5 team in the NFL this season.  Um, hello...last season's record was 4-12, not 12-4.  Did this guy learn nothing from the idiotic comments made in past seasons by Vince Young (Dream Team!) and Michael Vick (Dynasty!).

Hopefully unlike past seasons, the play on the field this season generates reviews as positive as the preseason reviews.  Otherwise it might not just be Michael Vick that the team gets rid of after this season.  Also out the door might be a supposedly #1 WR with putrid numbers of 45 catches, 700 yards, 2 TDs, and -7 rushing yards.

Less talk, more production.





Excitement...Welcome Back

Bleed Eagles Green lives on. 

Andy Reid might have put a serious damper on the Eagles passion and excitement that lives in this body and blood, but he could not kill it (just put it in hibernation for a few years!).

Like so many other fans, the change from Reid to Chipper has me excited for the first time in years about an upcoming Eagles season.  And not just a little excited, no, I am talking about Brian Dawkins pre-game excited!

I look forward to sharing this excitement (and any knowledge I may have picked up over these past few years) with you in the upcoming weeks and months.

I am BACK!!

Top Tips for Football Betting

Football betting can be a game of luck, but knowing your stuff always helps. The more you know about the game, the more exciting betting can be and the better the results.

An important thing to make clear when starting out with betting is to be responsible. Know your limits and know how you can prevent any mishaps. It is a good idea to check out online betting sites to make sure they offer deposit limits; bwin.com and paddypower.com do offer these and remember that it makes the experience a lot more enjoyable.

It’s always a good idea when making a bet to make sure you are placing your bet at the best place, this way you get the most from your money. It does tend to be very beneficial to bet online, simply because of the many offers available. Compare football odds over the Internet and bet at the best prices for your chosen market. Check to see if there are any money back specials at the time of placing your bet, which means you don’t have to lose a penny.

By now you should have a clear grasp on the different markets available out there to bet on. So depending on what you bet on, it is best to research around the area. If you’re fancying placing your bets on a certain player scoring first, have you had a look at their recent performances? The same applies with betting on a team to win, your team may be clear winners but are they really doing that well at the minute? When betting on these areas it is a good idea to look at the formbook, many teams also have their own page dedicated to team data so keep updated with this before you place any bets. Having prior knowledge and idea of statistics will not hinder your chances!

 If you are more of a horse race betting man then make sure you check out the grand-national.me.uk to get the latest free bets offers.

Review of Football themed Casino Games

Alongside playing Fantasy Football, casino games based on the game are great diversions from the emotional strain of following your team through the season, and this probably accounts for the huge popularity of both activities. Again like Fantasy Football, there are a number of different options open to those who want football themed casino games – although one of the best known is probably $5 Million Touchdown.

This five reel, nine pay line game, which features a video bonus game, is named after the size of the maximum jackpot available – which goes a long way to explaining why you should enjoy playing it. However, beyond that it also offers a brilliant NFL themed slots experience, particularly when it comes to the bonus game. This game involves you having to pass the football from one player to another, until you either fumble it (in which case you lose) or you score a touchdown (which sees you win). With each pass you successfully make, you increase your bonus credits, and this game goes a long way towards capturing the excitement of an actual NFL game.

It isn’t the only American football slots game available though, with probably the most notable rival to it being Pigskin Payout – the name referring to the football itself. This game features fine graphics, depicting a stadium backdrop, with the actual reels designed to look like a scoreboard. As with $5 Million Touchdown, the reel icons are all familiar sights from a typical NFL game, including a quarterback, referee, cheerleader, and the 50 yard line, while should you score a winning reel, you will see the cheerleader dance, the player avoid a tackle and the referee blow his whistle. Pigskin Payout also offers the chance of a really big payout – perhaps not the size of $5 Million, but still bigger than most slots games – thanks to its Jackpot Can’t Lose bonus feature. Both of these online casino games should prove just as fun as playing NFL Fantasy Football, for fans of the league and of betting.
