Eagles Tweet of the Week: Jason Kelce’s Family Photo


It’s time for the grand tradition of the Eagles Tweet of the Week to make a comeback on Philly Sports Muse. It just awaited that perfect tweet, which has been identified. And, thankfully, it comes with photographic accompaniment.

This one speaks for itself. Continue reading ‘Eagles Tweet of the Week: Jason Kelce’s Family Photo’

Eagles Tweet of the Week: Working on a Dream


The joys of being Super Bowl champions are seemingly neverending. The knowledge that you are the best in the game and your hard work and talent have gotten you the highly coveted Lombardi trophy. For a year your team’s named is referred to as the “World Champion Team XYZ.”  You get to bask in the privilege of having your accomplishment honored by the President of the United States of America.

Of course, we wouldn’t know anything about this as Eagles fans. And it hurts like hell.

Seeing The Team That Won’t Be Named north of us on I-95 have the opportunity to meet and joke around with President Barack Obama on Friday over their accomplishment in February was maddening.  I lept up to turn off the TV at the sight of them at the White House with their ear-to-ear grins even though the remote control was right next to me. Slamming a button on a remote just doesn’t have the same, satisfying feeling.

Yeah, Philadelphia Eagles fans have a huge chip on our shoulders until we can cross the hurdle of having OUR team getting a Super Bowl win. Hoisting up that trophy. Getting that parade down Broad Street. Being announced for a year as the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles (I’m hoping the act of visualizing en masse will help to get us to this goal sooner rather than later).

CB Brandon Hughes saw the coverage of the Team Who Shall Not Be Named and is letting it fuel his dreams. Which happens to be our dream as well.  And for that, he has the Eagles Tweet of the Week.

Keep working on that dream.

Have a great weekend, Eagles fans!

Eagles Tweet of the Week: How’s About A Follow, Mike Vick?


Time for something that’s been on a bit of a hiatus–the Eagles Tweet of the Week. What better time to highlight tweets of Eagles players then when they have the opportunity to welcome a new member to their team?

The Twitter arms were outstretched to welcome new teammate Fletcher Cox, the  21-year old DT acquired by the Eagles in the 1st round of the 2012 draft.

Evan Mathis served up a helping of his usual Twitter wit:

Hmm. I wonder who he could be talking about?

Fellow DT Cullen Jenkins is a man of few words, but he said all that needed to be said:

DE Darryl Tapp invites the rookie to partake in some d-line bonding:

Jason Babin engaged in some hazing of young Cox by having some fun with his name. He’s gotta be used to it.  Admit it, we’ve all descended into giggles when hearing innocent comments combined with the name “Cox.” If I’m being honest, I burst out in laughter when reading Jim Washburn’s comments about Cox’s explosiveness (“He’s an exploder.”). Don’t judge me.

Back to the matter at hand…tweets. While the jokes and hospitality were great to see, a single tweet from Cox is my favorite. Because even though a team moved up to get you and you were picked in the first half of the first round of the 2012 draft, you haven’t really arrived until your team’s star quarterback follows you on Twitter.

So Vick. How about it?

Eagles Tweet of the Week: Decisions, Decisions


With their new-found freedom from practice schedules, travel, and games, Eagles  players may find themselves overwhelmed with all of their freedom. So many options–what should they do?

Shop. Eat. Sleep. Shop. Club. Watch TV. Play video games. Repeat.

It seems that the Birds squad has been engaged in all of the above. But what proportion is the right balance? Rookie OG Julian Vandervelde wrestles with exactly this issue.

That’s a lot of Words With Friends. But, hey–you only live once…

Happy Friday, Eagles fans. Whether your weekend be spent sleeping, on Skyrim, eating,  or playing WWF, enjoy it.

Eagles Tweet Of The Week: All Apologies


My head knows that there will be no more Eagles football until next fall (*sobs*), but somehow the realization hasn’t fully sunk in. And it probably won’t until this weekend, when I see other teams trying to make it to the Super Bowl and not the Eagles.

One of the many signs that it’s the offseason? The fact that the biggest story in Eagles news was related to a tweet.

It’s going to be a long offseason. Even selecting a Tweet of the Week was infinitely harder today than it was during the season because the players are tweeting up a storm during their free team. My Eagles Twitter list took ages to scroll through. A reminder, guys: It’s quality, not quantity that counts. I’ve got a feature to run here.

It was a tweet sent on New Year’s Day that makes this week’s Tweet of the Week honors.

That’s a loaded promise. But I respect Mike Vick for acknowledging how heavy our hearts were in disappointment that the team finished strong, but not strong enough.

It’s true–there is a lot of work that Mike Vick must put in this offseason. There is a lot of work all the Eagles must put in. I want to believe Vick, and I do think the Eagles will have a strong 2012, but there are so many variables that it simply isn’t Vick’s promise to make.

But with that said, I still love the tweet and what it represents: Responsibility, accountability, disappointment, and a fire to push harder in the future. Go ‘head, Vick.
