Me sorry. Bizarro Lupes is writing this blurgg... Wartching the Miami Heat crush the OKC Thunder in Game 5 turned regular Lupes into "Garbage" (the extra-sensitive superhero) who transforms into Bizarro Lupes when times are uncomfortable...
Bizarro Lupes cannot comprehend how the Miami Heat now have their 2nd Championship title and the Eagles are still shy of their first NFL championship title since 1960-61...
Listening to LeBron rant on about how his feelings were hurt after last season's NBA loss in the playoffs was revolting to Bizarro Lupes... try stepping into some Iggles fans' shoes, LeBron, and you will get to know what time-tested hurt feelings are all about...
It didn't help much when the NFLN Network was simultaneously showing clips from the infamous "Fog Bowl" of the December 31, 1988 playoff game between the Eagles and the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
What a rip that game was... The game should have been called on account of FOG!!--- but since da Bears grabbed the early lead before the fog rolled in from Lake Michigan, the gutless referee crew carried on with a steadfast commitment to finish the game. I think we lost 20-12... what a joke. Players came off the field to the sideline with coaches asking "What happened on that play--- we couldn't see anything!"
Jump cut to now...
Former Chicago Bears college scouting director Greg Gabriel is back in the NFL.
Gabriel has been hired as a senior college scout by the Eagles. He will work primarily in the Midwest. Gabriel served under former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo from 2001 through the 2010 draft before he was fired. Angelo ran off Gabriel and pro personnel director Bobby DePaul to create a job for Tim Ruskell. The Angelo/Ruskell front office lasted two seasons before Angelo was fired two days after the end of the 2011 season.
Gabriel's main task will be in playing an instrumental role in the development of the Eagles draft plan. His first four drafts with Chicago yielded 18 players who started at least one game for the Bears in 2005, including first-time Pro Bowl selections Lance Briggs, Nathan Vasher and Tommie Harris, named an all-star starter in just his second NFL season. Nine of 22 opening-day starters last year were drafted during Gabriel’s tenure with the team.
Gabriel came to Chicago after serving as the Director of Player Development for the New York Giants. The Buffalo native joined the Giants scouting department during the 1985 off-season after serving as an area scout for an NFL scouting combine in the Great Lakes area. During his tenure with the Giants, the team went to three Super Bowls, winning two. Gabriel began his NFL career with two years working in Buffalo’s scouting and film grading department. Prior to entering football, Gabriel was an account executive with Prudential-Bach and later with Dean Witter Reynolds while working part-time in the scouting department of the Bills.
A native of Buffalo where he was born in 1951, Gabriel prepped at Bishop Neumann High School in Williamsville, N.Y. He was a running back at Canisius College for three seasons while earning his bachelor of science degree. Gabriel played eight seasons for the Twin City Geminis, a semi-pro team in the Buffalo area where he also coached the running backs and special teams for one season.
Gabriel and his wife, Robin, married following the 2004 NFL Draft. Gabriel has three daughters (Liza, Ryan and Kelsey), two stepsons (Ryan and Nolan), one stepdaughter (Emily) and two grandsons (Jordan and Herman).
But I for one am happy to see the Eagles recruiting an eccentric genius for their scouting department. If you're going to win the big one, you might as well start with a scouting department that thinks big--- and the Eagles are in the perfect position to think big outside the box.
I would love to catch with all of you if I get the chance to. I love travel and meeting crazy people
Yep plan is now..Falcons...Maybe N.O., just to see Bourbon Street I guess...Since I will be down In Orlando, I might go for a Road trip across... Or Summit...
Then, DALLAS, Washington at home, Then Panthers so I get to see Cam Newton get pizzled by Cole a few times. 4 or 5 games...The Year the Igggz got the Silverware...
Beans... if you make youre way to the pats stadium, let me know, youll be in my (and blasphemers) neck of the woods. After we piss on gillete stadium, wich ive dun well take a ride up to provisence and find a nice whore house.
Never paid for it, actually did pay for it once when I was working at the mines... I had a shower and fell asleep for the whole Hour!!! THEN told her to fuck off for another hour when she woke me up....320 for a kip in a dirty old brothel bed!!!! Can't make that up...
Beano......I been to Da Linc 7 or 8 times.
The Vet was better experience.
But I wasn't the one trying to run around on that AstroTurf.....so I decided to let the players choose which they liked the best.
I blew some big cash on close to sideline tix.. But I want a section that has a good Value view of the game and a big screen...Which section is your pick?
@beanstalk back at the Vet....my favorite seats were right behind the goal post....and wartched many games there, about 5 rows up. TBT....you can see Brozer, and his wifey, amonst the masses, on the television replay of the season opener in 2001 against the Rams, as they kicked the game winning FG, right at Broz's spot. My forth or fiff game I attended there, we got 50 yard line seats pretty low.....but didn't enjoy them nearly as much, although they were much more expensive. The circular stadium made the 50 yard line seats feel very far away from the action to me.
At the Linc.....the seats are closer (although there's less elbow room). I've only sat behind the goalposts at The Linc. It just depends on how you like watching the game. If your at the 50 yard line...you can watch the RB make progress.....and distances of passes are easier to appreciate. But I prefer behind the posts....even though a 2 yard run and a 7 yard run often look the same....same wiff a 5 yard pass vs a 15 yard pass. But you get to see the plays develop better.....blocking and what nots. And you get a GREAT view of red zone plays when they are right in front of you.
@atvcar Eff all that. Things would be different for some posters here iffin there was fresh football topics to discuss. But there's not so we have fun. We rip on each other for fun. Some peeps can't handle that. They can't handle the truth!
@PPW Oh I'm just a lighting rod... Always have been... I used to it... It don't bother me none. Just don't like seeing good folks like you and Dutchy taking collateral damage cause of me.
@atvcar Man that whole thing is so overblown. It seems like petty jealousy to me. I like what I like. Don't like something? Walk on home boy.
@PPW Careful... You'll be labeled a rebel and get in trouble in these parts liking me... You've been warned...
@atvcar Why yes I did! Unfortunately I was too late to comment. Breakfast Club. I think my favorite was the signiture at the end "N2B2 #3"
@Brozer8 @beanstalk You know me... I LOVE it... Pissing off those 80,000... Priceless. As you can maybe imagine... I can be quite vocal and a smartass... I'm the perfect guy to send behind enemy lines
@beanstalk @Brozer8 I'm going to the iggles game in Dallas this year... Dec 2nd.... Who's going to be there to party wiff?
@Brozer8Hmmm. The plan is to catch more than One game now..So forkin out 800 bucks per game is silly... Would rather stay for a couple of months and check the US out a bit.. Falcons then Saints... Do I really want to go to New Orleans tho? I am more scared of the Superdome than a 6 metre shark when I am surfing...
DALLAS the following week... I got Make a Jerry Jones is da Debil sign,,,
low endzone seats are my fav, but while they are cheaper than low 50 yard line, they aren't cheap. at the Linc.....if I wanted a good deal, I'd sacrifice going up higher, vs a low seat at the corner of the stadium. Endzone or 50 yardline, up in the higher sections, would probably be a good deal.
Well.... I gots some sleep to still catch up on from earlier this week when I was on sick kid watch... God speed on healing that ankle Beans
@beanstalk Wish I could help ya out... But I have never been. Last time I saw the iggles in Philly was still at the Vet
@atvcar So Bri is pitching a fit? Why? Cause we had a little fun with the points? Come on now. He can't be that shallow .
Actually, there is a point. You kept banging on being aggressive to Nat.. Now I still think she fucked up, but the Bored pointed out that we did too.
Even TJ explained that to you directly.
The points thing was funny to me, because it has no value, but for the wily Vet's. As long as ya admitted it, the cheating for fun bit, Which you did, so I don't care..
It the Blight, and I am just gonna keep laughing while I can...
Funnily enough, Being actually STUCK here sorta sucks..
@beanstalk I have no clue... I posted about no news on our RB's... And outta the blue BAM he rips into me like a monkey into a cupcake... Then same thing below talking about the deepest team and that story on Kirwin... I didn't even know he was lurking, and BAM again another unprovoked onslaught... Then I suppose he gets his panties in a wad cause I don't say "Thanks Mr. Bri for that post where you didn't even read or comprehend my post and then called me stupid... I shall perk up for you... Please please forgive me".... Plus, he's all bent outta shape over the likes and points thing here... Like it matters? But I can't help pushing buttons so I make as bg a deal as I can about it at every turn to annoy him specifically... And is also why Dutchy gave me all those likes... It's funny getting him ranting and name calling like Nat. Least she has the excuse of being a woman for acting all womanly.
Why are you two poofs going at it for anyways?
