The Morning After- Eagles beat the 49ers for playoff berth

"Bookmark



Morning campers,TMA logo

If you live anywhere in the Northeast part of the country, I feel your pain... the pain that can only come from shoveling over two feet of the white stuff... I can honestly say that if I hear that classic holiday song right about now... well, it could get ugly.

Let it snow my A##!

Ok, let's get to getting...

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHIP-MAS...Herr's
In what is arguably the biggest news to come out of yesterday (aside from Brittany Murphy's  untimely and shocking passing) was the fact that MQ and I have a new favorite potato chip. Scoff if you will, but in the world of gametime munchies, this is breaking news of epic proportions.

Not even Nosh-tradamus could've predicted this one...

The new #1 chip? Cue the drumroll... I give you Herr's Cheddar Horseradish. If you have not nibbled on these babies yet... trust MQ and I and go get yourself some today.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MY TWO BIG HANDS...
Santa came earlier to the Mikell house... Good Lord was that really Quintin Mikell making a spectacular interception in the 1Q? This is the same man, that if he were in room of sick people couldn't catch the flu we're talking about.

Hell, he almost another one later in the game, too.

Next thing you'll tell me is the Sixers will beat the Celtics in Boston...

I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS...
You have a better chance of seeing that than of seeing Q-Mike's secondary partner Sean Jones actually show some agression in his tackling... talk about passive. Dude makes Stuart Smalley look like Rambo.

Sean, boobie... I think it's time we send you to see Don Corleone so he can lay the "Johnny Fontane" on you... "YOU CAN ACT LIKE A MAN!"2 turtle doves

ON THE 2ND DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME, TWO ALEX SMITHS...
So let's check in and see how their Alex Smith did agaisnt our Alex Smith.

Their Alex: 20/37 177 yards, 1TD, 3INT
Our Alex: 1 catch for 3 yards

Wow, that's really too close to call...

ROCKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE...
Clearly that's what the Niners secondary was doing instead of covering DeSean Jackson... Of course they were not the only team to somehow and most-inexplicably forget to pick up #10's whereabouts.

Yeah, it was a real Winter Wonderland for DeSean for most of last night...sorry, couldn't resist.

GIDDY UP, GIDDY UP, GIDDY UP LET'S GO...
Flipping channels -- that's what MQ and I do, in case you forgot, we landed at one point on Celebrity Skiing. I kid you not... We tuned in just in time to see Patrick Warburton face off against some other "C" level celebrity. Puddy

And you do know who Patrick Warburton is... you do, right? 

Ugh... you're killing me. Here's a hint... (see pic) 

And next week, don't miss Celebrity Luge... I like Roseanne over Arsenio Hall.

CHESTNUTS ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE...
Donnie Mac throws one more "Are you kidding me INT" and #5's chestnuts were up for strong roasting consideration...

Yes, he made some very good throws, had a nice run for TD but the two INTs (and it should have been 3) he threw were downright roast-worty... throwing across his body on one and into triple coverage on another.

SILENT NIGHT, WEAVER NIGHT...
Len, may I call you Len? The next time an opposing player tells you your mom wears army boots or some other egregious offensive remark... walk away... especially when your team has no time outs left and is trying to stop the clock!

Just make a mental note of that will you, Lenny? Thanks pal.

GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN...ups
The mountain is pretty much where I want all those damn UPS whiteboard commercials to go... now.

I don't know about you, but I've pretty much had enough.

They were clever... two years ago. Jeezus, check the expiration date would you please? I think they're stale...

IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE... A SPOT PASS?
First, he revolutionized the greeting card industry. Then he brought his brilliance to government... and now?

MQ has done it again.His last idea is to implement the Spot Pass into football ASAP.

What is the Spot Pass? Well, if you've ever played touch football in a street or driveway, you know the term Spot Pass. Here's how it works:

One team kicks off or punts to another team. The person receiving the kick has the option of yelling "Spot" as soon he catches the ball. If he calls this out, he can throw a forward pass to a teammate to advance the ball further up the field. The one caveat is that as soon he yells "Spot" he cannot move, he must stand in the spot (no pun intended) and make his pass from where he stands.

I tell you, this could and would change the entire game... the man is sheer brilliance... sheer brilliance I tell you.

DO THEY KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS?
I sure hope so but do they also know...

*Why the Niners stopped giving the ball to Frank Gore? He averaged over 6.5 yards a carry, which ain't bad come to think of it...
*Jay Cutler of the Bears had a QB Rating of 9.7 yesterday in the Bears game vs. the Ravens... 9.7. That's just 9.7 higher than what I had.
*Why Andy Reid decided to go for it on 4th and short so deep in their own territory? Lack of respect for the Niners Offense or superior belief in the Eagles Defense?
*There was no flag thrown on the Niners for a late hit on DeSean Jackson in the 4Q?
*The Eagles clinched a playoff spot with the win? And no one cares... I sure don't. Yes, it's nice and looks great on paper but given this team's history...

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS...
I would like to wish everyone a safe and joyous Christmas. May Santa leave everything you want under your tree...

Ok, that's it for this week.

Til next time.

Time's yours. Food's mine.
