“I want every piece of Dallas” – Nick Scioli (my brother) at 12:20 am on Facetime
Welp Nick its not Dallas. It’s the San Francisco 49ers. Led by Mr. Irrelevant Brock Purdy and Nick Bosa. After dismantling the New York Football Giants 38-7…that score look familiar?, on Saturday night the Birds head to their second NFC title game in 5 years.
The Eagles will enter their 8th NFC Championship game all time favored by 2.5 at home at The Linc this Sunday. The Birds look to get their second Super Bowl in 6 years. Which is sentence I think many Eagles fans still have trouble comprehending. Two times in 5 years! Some Browns fans out there may think I sound like an asshole for saying that but for me it’s still hard to believe.
The 49ers defense who has been much talked about this year led by DPOY front runner Nick Bosa and LB Fred Warner enter Sunday with a league leading 16.3 OPP PPG and a vicious running attack led by Olivia Culpo’s boyfriend. Being called the one of the most complete teams in the NFL all year the Eagles do have some trouble stopping the run allowing an average of 121.4 rush yards all season. A calling card to Kyle Shanahan’s offense.
What San Fran defense isn’t ready for is the man that has been blessed by the football gods. Arthur Juan Brown Sr. And a pissed off AJ Brown at that. After only having 3 receptions for 22 yards on Saturday Brown was visibly upset on the sideline and one can only guess that was the reason why. The man is competitor he wants to be great in big games. I’m happy he was pissed! He was later caught on camera on the bench saying “I’m good.” So that means the rest of us are good.
After watching AJ Brown every week for the last 18 weeks I fully believe in the Men In Black theory that aliens are all around us and now I think the major motion picture starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones is based on true events. In fact I think the Eagles should bring back the Alien Iverson giveaway dolls next year but have them be some form of an AJ Brown alien. You’re welcome Mr. Lurie you can have that idea. AJ Brown running across the middle on a slant has become an automatic 10 yards if not more this season and a safety play for Jalen. Having him fired up and ready to play is going to be dangerous.
Hassan Reddick is going make Brock Purdy truly become Mr. Irrelevant. I can’t believe some one that athletic and talented could come out of South Jersey. It makes me proud to say I grew up in South Jersey now!
Sunday is going to be beautiful. Game time 3pm with a high of 53 and the promise of a gorgeous sunset over 95 and the Miller Lite Philte Deck..that’s to the west right? If I were you i’d go right now and camp out for a spot in line at Xfinity Live like you’re waiting in line for an Iphone. I feel foolish being worried about last weeks game against the Giants, the Eagles proved me wrong almost instantly. My optimism for this game is high. I think the Eagles will win 31-24 and will be heading to Arizona for the Super Bowl
Maybe Kliff Kingsbury will be renting out his porno house that weekend and some lucky Eagles fans will have the chance to stay there.
