Rob Senior Offers His Games Not To Bet In The NFL and NCAA For Week 6.
Gabe Kapler is still the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies. Should he be? We look into the pros and the cons and consider if we trust the organization to make the right "tough" call.
It’s Week 5 of the NFL season and the Birds have made their statement. A big win in Green Bay seems to have altered the course of the season and the lowly Jets are in town this weekend. Are we ready for a roll? We discuss, as well as get into our typical hijinks of Games Not to Bet and Survival Football. We also will carve into the potentially landmark decision in California to let college athletes make some money and it’s potentia... Read more
As of this recording (Wednesday), the Eagles are a ghastly 1-2, with back-to-back tough losses, most recently at home. While panic might be strong, with two conference losses and the NFC looking somewhat strong with parity there is an early hole to consider. There is a lingering Phillies bitterness that is coming into play here, but is the organization and its coaches already on a hot seat? Meanwhile, some Philly fans are rescuing ... Read more
The Eli Manning era is over … again. Not that it seems to have much impact on the Eagles’ season, but we will discuss him either way. Where does he rank in his generation and among those of the past? …. Something that sort of is affecting the Eagles, aside from injuries, is the potential to acquire a certain cornerback out of Jacksonville. We discuss this as well, along with Games Not To Bet and the Survivor Football Manifesto for ... Read more
We are two weeks into 2019 and Antonio Brown has “represented” two NFL teams. With legal troubles now added to his pot of stew, can he make it a third team by Week 3, or might he be done in the NFL altogether for a bit? The first week of the season provided its own drama as well. The Birds started slow, but finished off the Skins quickly after that, D-Jax made a triumphant return and aside from the D looking a bit meek all is well... Read more
The NFL is back! And so are the Eagles! And so is Carson Wentz! And so are The Jabronis! We’re podcasting live at Nippers Bar and Pizza, and we’ve got our NFL preview show. We’ll discuss some of what went down in the offseason, and give some predictions on the Birds and others around the league. And, of course, we will open the debates of Games Not to Bet and Survivor Football. Listen!
“Tomorrow” has finally arrived in Philadelphia – Bryce Harper is evidently a Philly on a “team-friendly” contract with no opt-out years and enough money to buy the world. How do we feel about this exhausting free agency period? Where does this put the Phils, who were already having an active offseason, on the MLB map. We discuss, live from Nippers. Listen!
If you had to bet your life on which franchise in professional sports would never win a championship, who would you take? We peel the onion on this thought-provoking question, because our life depends on it. Try to figure out if you can make any sense of our rationale, and say your prayers (and send those prayers along to us as well, you know, if any of these teams start winning). Recorded live at Nippers. Listen!
The 76ers have rebuilt their squad, but the Lakers, namely Magic Johnson and cough, cough Lebron James may be trying to pull a sneaky sneaky. Ben Simmons is apparently prime for the picking … how worried should we be? At least we know Aaron Nola is here to stay for a bit. Good job Phillies. We will discuss both developments and find some way to get into NFL happenings. Recorded live at Nippers. Listen!
Who needs the NFL when you have the NBA trade deadline and a sort of percolating MLB hot stove. It’s been a whirlwind of a 48 hours in Philadelphia, starting with the 76ers pulling off some major trades and planting their flag in the “all in” bin in the Eastern Conference. Tobias Harris is in and Markelle Fultz is out. And then there are the equally aggressive Phillies, who are not sitting on their hands waiting for certain free ag... Read more
We are a week away from the Super Bowl and lord knows how long until we know about the prospects of Bryce Harper. We take some time to talk some baseball on this Football Thursday, and of course we can expect our resident “Patriots fans” to gloat. It’s our unofficial Super Bowl and Bryce Harper preview, recorded live at Nippers. Listen!
A contentious Championship Sunday in the NFL has set up a Super Bowl that nobody saw coming and that few people may be wanting to watch. Ticket sales are reportedly sagging, Saints fans are still crying and the Kansas City Chiefs defense is still trying to figure out how to not “rough” a passer. The Jabronis will try to make sense of it all and harken back to the olden days of what seemed to be consistently bad Super Bowls as we pr... Read more
The Philadelphia Eagles finally ran out of magic in the NFC Divisional Round in New Orleans, but they certainly kept it interesting up until almost the last minute. We break down the most recent of gut-churning games for the Birds, make our peace with the ending of what in some ways will be an era and get our act together in time to dissect who we will be rooting for the rest of the way. Will it be the former coach? Will it be the... Read more
Yes, the Eagles are Super Bowl champions. Yes, they beat the scumbag Patriots last year for the city’s first bowl title in a game that will be emotionally impossible to duplicate let alone surpass. And then last week’s game in Chicago happened. We relive our game watches and try to figure out if the one-week-at-a-time mentality can work as the Birds prep for their playoff in New Orleans. Plus we take a guess at the weekend’s other ... Read more
The Philadelphia Eagles have done the (almost) unthinkable. They have officially earned the right to defend their Super Bowl title with some Week 17 magic, and a little help from their “friends” in Minnesota. Or were the friends in Chicago? Either way, Chicago is now the enemy as we gear up for the postseason. We dissect the Birds’ chances at a repeat and take a look at the playoff tree. Plus, some Game(s) Not To Bet. Recorded live...

It’s the NFL’s version of the spirit of giving - a winners take (almost) all Week 17. The Eagles and Vikings will try to win their respective games Sunday afternoon for a ticket to the NFL playoffs. For the Birds, it’s a chance to defend a Super Bowl title and recreate another improbable playoff run. We also lament on fantasy Football and discuss the MVP race. Recorded live at Nippers!
The legend of Nick Foles is back with a vengeance in Philadelphia, and the Eagles continue to have a pulse in the NFC wild card race. We are here to make sense of what is another fascinating football situation in Philadelphia and prognosticate what is about to be “finals week” in fantasy football. And some of our usual hijinks, including Games Not to Bet. Plus, we talk some Manny Machado. Recorded live from Nippers.
Quite the hectic week in Philly, eh? The Eagles lose, only to see their season “survive” with the Minnesota loss. And just as we brace for Los Angeles, we learn that Carson Wentz is hurt. Out again for the duration, it seems. And that’s only the half of it. We try to make sense of the last 7 days and what the near (and perhaps distant) future holds. Recorded live at Nippers. Listen!
By virtue of their win over the Redskins on Monday night, the Philadelphia Eagles get to play a truly meaningful game in Dallas this coming Sunday. The season will (almost) assuredly come down to this matchup. How do the Jabronis feel about the Birds’ prospects? Can we even harbor thoughts of a wild card if they lose to the Cowboys. … Also, has trash talk official lost its edge? And just what the heck was Kareem Hunt thinking? We d... Read more
