Angelo Cataldi announced Tuesday on 94.1 WIP that Wing Bowl, after much speculation, is officially over. After teasing a major announcement on Twitter, Cataldi and the Morning Crew announced WIP's Wing Bowl 26, which was held last February, was the annual event's last. The reasoning behind the decision, according to Cataldi, was because the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl. The tradition, which began in 1993, welcomed thousands of people to the Wells Fargo Center every year the weekend of the Super Bowl early Friday morning, to help ease the pain of the Eagles never winning the Super Bowl.Last year's Wing Bowl winner, Molly Schuyler, ate a total 501 wings.

PUBLISHED: 17:00 05 February 2018 A tweet from NFL UK of running back Jay Ayari celebrating Super Bowl victory with his parents (Pic: NFL UK) Archant London-born running back Jay Ajayi was draped in a Union Flag as he described winning Super Bowl LII with the Philadelphia Eagles as the “greatest feeling in the world”. The 24-year-old Arsenal fan played his part in Philly’s maiden Super Bowl victory with 57 rushing yards as the Eagles upset the New England Patriots 41-33 in Minnesota and denied them a third ring in four years and a sixth title in 17 seasons.Ajayi, who lived in England until moving to America at the age of seven, embraced London grime artist Stormzy pitchside before the game and said afterwards he wanted the victory, and his story, to motivate others in the country of his birth as he became the fifth Briton to win a Super Bowl.“Hopefully it will inspire some people, just from the journey, from the challenges that I’ve been through, the … [Read more...] about London-born Ajayi savours ‘greatest feeling in the world’ with Eagles Super Bowl win
A very special bird gang will be paying tribute to the Philadelphia Eagles' victory in Super Bowl LII on Wednesday night's episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." An inventive Season 13 continues with a trip to Minneapolis for the Eagles' historic 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots. It'll help you forget that the defending champs are currently sitting at 3-4. The episode comes a with a few twists. After last week's homage to "Seinfeld," Wednesday's episode will be a tribute to the Christmas classic "Home Alone." That's fitting, considering Macaulay Culkin is an Eagles fan himself. The trailer doesn't tease much about how the Eagles game will figure into the episode, but we do know that Charlie Kelly didn't make the trip to Minnesota with the rest of The Gang.We also know that there are guest appearances from two Eagles players. You can count on Jason Kelce being one of them. For the rest, you'll have to tune in Wednesday night at 10 p.m. on FXX. … [Read more...] about ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ tackles Eagles’ Super Bowl tonight
Talk about a hangover. Eagles fans are stumbling along, halfway through the season, with waning good feelings about the defending Super Bowl champs being 3-4 to start the season. The latest FanPulse survey revealed that just 38 percent of Eagles fans were confident about the direction of the team right now. So what’s wrong with the Eagles? You can point to a few different things. Big plays are one problem. The offense was the 15th best at generating them last season. This year, they were 22nd prior to a Week 7 loss to the Panthers. On the other side of the ball, the defense was the 4h best at preventing big plays; they’re 28th this year, so far. As you can see, it’s just a lot of blah on both sides of the ball. Carson Wentz is getting better since his return in September, but he’s still having a little trouble closing out games. He was 23-for-27 with 281 in the first three quarters of last week’s loss, but he was 6-for-9 with 29 yards and only two … [Read more...] about NFL Panic Index: Just how bad is the Eagles’ Super Bowl hangover?
On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles fell to 2-3 on the season with a 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings at home. For the defending Super Bowl champions, that matches their loss total from all of last year — and needless to say, the city of Philadelphia is getting restless.In some ways, it's almost like they never won the Super Bowl at all. Sure, there's still time for the Eagles to turn it around — although they won't have long to prepare for their next game at the Giants on Thursday night — but it seems that Philly fans are the only ones losing faith in Doug Pederson's team. It also appears that the Birds are losing favor among Vegas oddsmakers. The Westgate SuperBook, for instance, has dropped the Eagles' odds of winning the Super Bowl to 40-1. That's clearly not where the Eagles thought they'd be five games into the season, with a worse record than the Cleveland Browns (2-2-1). So who is to blame for the Birds' slow start? According to many, it begins at the … [Read more...] about What they’re saying: It’s open season on Doug Pederson as Eagles’ Super Bowl odds plummet
