Week 15 – Dallas @ Philadelphia: Embedded with the “screaming idiots”

It takes a brave man to wear a Dallas Cowboys’ jersey into Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field. But Matt Walsh did just that and emerged from the madness to pen this story for us.

Week 14 – Seattle @ Philadelphia: ‘Hawks returning to championship form

We knew that Seattle @ Philadelphia would be a big game, and James Caughlin says the result may be ominous for the rest of the NFL as the Seahawks start to find some serious form.

About James Caughlin

Growing up in Brisbane Australia, James got into the NFL during the 2000 season thanks to the Madden NFL video game. His cousins told him to use the Patriots (as a prank on him) but 3 Super Bowls and multiple winning season’s later, he has had the last laugh. Now you will hear him yelling at the TV around 4am on a Monday morning watching every Patriots game live.

Week 12 – Tennessee @ Philadelphia: Dismember the Titans, now it’s Dallas week!

After missing last week’s loss to Green Bay (deliberate?), Philadelphia fan Scott Langford is back with another entertaining Eagles’ tale. It’s a win over Tennessee just ahead of a huge Thanksgiving Day clash with Dallas.

Week 10 – Carolina @ Philadelphia: Monday night massacre

Great story/multi-media presentation by Philadelphia fan Scott Langford, who had plenty of time on his hands while his Eagles were destroying the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football.

Week 9 – Philadelphia @ Houston: Mark Sanchez: Should I be scared or excited?

Philadelphia fan Scott Langford says you can call him crazy but he thinks the Eagles are strong enough to survive an injury to starting quarterback Nick Foles.

Week 8 – Philadelphia @ Arizona: Disappointment in the desert

Love this line from Philadelphia fan Scott Langford: “If you want to get to Arizona in February, you might need to go through Arizona in January.” Oh and by the way, his Eagles had every chance to win this weekend.

Week 6 – Eagles vs Giants Pre-Game Q&A

Philadelphia Eagles’ fan Scott Langford and New York Giants’ fan Cody Royle have a (very civilized, I must point out) debate about the big upcoming rivalry game between their two teams.

Week 5 – St. Louis @ Philadelphia: What it really means to bleed midnight green

Scott Langford lives through another tense, high-scoring battle, but says it’s all part of being a Philadelphia Eagles’ fan.

Week 3 – Washington @ Philadelphia: Hillbillies and Croissants (the view from Cameroon)

Michael Viljoen’s amazing report on the Eagles victory over the Redskins from the jungles of Cameroon!
[As well written as it is improbable. An Almanac classic – Thanks Michael. Ed]

About Michael Viljoen

My work (Christian missions) has allowed me to visit and live in different countries and continents, but none near America. I think I hold the world record for having the most number of American friends without ever setting foot in America. Consequently I am obliged to know something about the NFL. I view the game itself as a curious combination of testosterone and chess. I like it.

Week 3 – Washington @ Philidelphia. New beginnings and missed opportunities.

Watching from his new home in Boston, Jordan Breust watches Kirk Cousins’ breakout game end in disappointment.

Week 3 – Washington @ Philadelphia: The Return

Scott Langford says that the return of former Eagle DeSean Jackson was the main storyline going into the game with Washington, but ultimately it would end up taking a back seat to another Philly victory.

Week 1 – Jacksonville @ Philadelphia: Right Result, Wrong Method

It took awhile and by his own admission it certainly didn’t go according to script, but Scott Langford’s Philadelphia Eagles finally pulled away from the underdog Jacksonville Jaguars.

Week 1 – Jacksonville @ Philadelphia: London Jaguars fade after half

Sir Damon, US-born but UK-bred, checks in on “London’s team” the Jacksonville Jaguars, who after taking an early lead against Philadelphia, collapsed in the second half.

About Sir Damon

Sir Damon (may or may not be his real name) grew up in Los Angeles but has spent most of his life riding the Hammersmith & City line from Wood Lane to Baker Street. He was a fan of the old Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe and while highly skeptical that the Jacksonville Jaguars will become “London’s team,” he’s willing to give it a shot.
