Kelce isn't done for the year. It is being reported that he has partial tear in ACL and full MCL and is having a diagnostic scope sometime soon. Reid said they will take it from there, but there is a chance he goes on the designated IR list, in which he can reactivated later. The outlook doesn't seem great, but there is a chance he will play again this year.

King Dunlap's injury also isn't too serious. He would immediately return to being the starter if he can go this week. Bell did a good job replacing him though.

Not that it matters, but how come the Eagles don't have captain C's on their jerseys? It seems like every other team does.

Most teams have static designated captains based on leadership/tenure, some teams have captains appointed weekly. The Eagles are in the latter category.

Anyone catch Ray Lewis insisting Vick's incomplete pass was a fumble in his post game rant? I live in Virginia, so there's a small amount of Raven's fans down here and they were all going on and on about how they got screwed by the refs. I thought it was pretty clear that it was an incomplete pass when I saw the replay.

My girlfriend is a Ravens fan, and thought it was pretty conclusively a pass. The Ravens fanbase in general seems to have a big persecution complex when it comes to reffing, based on what I've encountered.

Edit: It's even worse than my fellow Virginia Tech fans...I suspect that with the crap quality of ACC reffing, every fanbase in the conference thinks the zebras are out to get them though.

There were a few questionable calls...but that wasn't one of them.

What's great on that play is the replay of the referee looking square at the ground behind Vick's feet on the throw... not at him, not at the line--the ground.

I caught that. He is straight up staring at Vick's feet, and doesn't begin to look up until the ball is gone. We rewound that a few times.

Stealing from a FB friend:

'My favorite part of last Sunday was seeing all the random lead officials who were pulled out of their random jobs, then thrown into a baziillion-dollar league and forced to explain calls 25 to 30 times per game to a stadium of 60,000 people as well as a TV audience of millions. I thought the announcers should have said their real jobs every time they threw it to them, as in …

"To find out if the touchdown has been overturned, let's go to Jerry Smith, the general manager of three Chik-fil-A's in Orlando."

"Was it a fumble? Let's hear from Bob Johnson, who owns his own insurance agency in Plano, Texas."'
-Bill Simmons

I don't know how it is in NOVA, but this statement couldn't be any more true for Raven's fans in Va Beach. They act like all they do is live in the shadows of the Redskins. I haven't encountered a fanbase that loves to feel like they get the "little brother" treatment quite like Raven's fans.

Every Ravens fan I know despises the Redskins, and I can't figure it out. I've had it explained to me as intense bitterness over Colts fans switching over to the Skins when that team was moved, or something. I think that's pretty spiteful.

I think you're right about the Little Brother deal...they're sandwiched between some major fanbases with Pitt, Washington and Philly basically surrounding them and making them a very regional team.

It's odd considering their success over the last ten+ years though. You would think eventually they would just point at the Skins and laugh.

Either way, big win for the Eagles. I didn't think they would be discipline enough to beat the Ravens. Well, they were undisciplined as hell and still managed to win. I don't know anything anymore.

Julio Jones was projected for 12 points tonight in my one league. I needed two to win. That bum only gets 1 points and nets me a tie.

Don't feel too bad. Many years ago, I had Sexy Rexy as my starting QB. I needed .5 points to win. He got -2.7.

Where did this rumor even begin? I am having trouble finding it.

Also Kelce is done for 2012, I guess he has decided to have the surgery to repair his torn MCL and ACL. Long recovery ahead of him.

He tweeted that he didn't want to miss his flight to Philly.

Do the eagles coaches lube up the eagles players' gloves before each game?
