Comedic actor Jamie Kennedy: My Eagles will win

Fri, Jan 7

Here's 10 reasons why my Philadelphia Eagles will beat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday:

1. The Packers just have cheese. The Eagles have cheesesteak. That added protein makes it a meal for men. Not just rats.

2. The real McCoy. Everyone is talking Michael Vick. But the true linchpin to victory is LeSean McCoy. He's got to pick up the blitzes and also run the classic Eagles screen play that former running back Brian Westbrook did so well. Then he needs to pound the ball in the fourth quarter, which he's done a great job at this season. This will take pressure off Vick and the offensive line, opening up the passing lanes and setting up the long ball.


3. Eagles helmets are badass. They have the kind of helmets a daredevil can wear jumping 150 busses full of Cheeseheads. The Packers' helmet is just bad: a day-glow yellow helmet. The kind a kid wears when his class goes on a field trip so the teacher doesn't lose him at the zoo.

4. Vick must get the ball out of his hands quickly. He needs to eliminate the Packers' blitz. He needs to neutralize Clay Matthews. The Eagles will accomplish this by keeping in max protection with McCoy and tight end Brent Celek. Vick needs to hit his hot routes (to McCoy). He should run a few quarterback draws (since he's been driven out of the pocket anyway). He might as well own his own destiny.
