  “Thanksgiving, man.  Not a good day to be my pants.” – Kevin James   I’m not happy about the Eagles playing on Thanksgiving.  What is normally a battery recharge holiday with no stress, a little wine, a lot of food, a couple naps and a long weekend of decorating, hanging with the kids and friends is, this year, something else entirely. ...
As of last week, my "Final 4" take on the NFL was: Pats, Broncos, Cardinals, Packers. After that pathetic home performance by Green Bay — and the beatdown the Panthers laid on the Cowboys in Dallas — I'll swap the Packers and the Panthers. I hate to flip so abruptly after prime-time performances, but Week 12 really exposed the...
Week 8 is upon us, and it honestly feels like we've already watched an entire season of football. Maybe it's because the Eagles season has been so enjoyable, that we've been watching it in slow motion. After spending the last five years in a 4-sport exile, maybe we've learned to appreciate every week. Every moment. Every play. Every real...
Week 16 of the NFL regular season, and the playoff table still isn't set. Buckle up, buckaroos. I feel really good about the Eagles beating the Redskins this week. It's a HOME "do or die" game, and you don't come out flat for that. Even if they "DO" against the Redskins, they can still "DIE" against the Giants in...
Week 9 was a very good one for the Voodoo team, but it was admittedly a pretty predictable week after seeing the results in my personal office pool. I had a 14-1 mark, and lost to someone who had a perfect 15-0 pool... and I even had 42 points as my Monday Night Football total score tiebreaker (game ended...
  'Life is tough.  But it's tougher if you're stupid." - John Wayne   People from Philadelphia, New York and Boston all think they are the toughest around. “Hey, pal, I’m a New Yawka.  Beat it.”  “Yeah, I’m from Phillufia.  I’ll kick yer ass.”  “Who you feckin’ kiddin?  Toss off, I’m from Bahston.” WRONG! A tougher breed does not exist than the people who...
Three weeks in to the season, and we have a three-way tie for first place. Last week, Voodoo led the way with a 10-5 mark. Darren, Mike, and Mike all came in at 9-6. Note: There were only 15 games accounted for because I forgot to list the Jacksonville game. HERE ARE THE STANDINGS AFTER WEEK 3: Voodoo Brown: 28-17 Darren...
I am writing the Bombs this week. I hate me writing the Bombs, I like me reading the Bombs. I’ll do it so I never get asked again. The opening part is a dead on take on something or someone awful in NFL related at the moment. Like the Fan Duels one, that was great. We won’t be...
Congratulations, Mike Procopio, on winning the VoodooBrown Office Pool for the third time in four years. I don't know what they're putting in the water up in Boston, but whatever it is, it cranks out championships. Mike posted a 174-82 record (68%), which is better than pretty much every pundit from ESPN/Fox/CBS that put their picks on record. Good job,...
  This weekend's playoff matchups are pretty amazing. Every game is intriguing, and every team is worthy of SBL. Sidenote: I really wish the NCAA would instill a 16-team playoff (at least 8 teams). I still can't understand why they haven't figured it out. Four teams voted into a BS bracket is not a "playoff". If human votes can eliminate...
