It’s all going wrong.
FREEFALL. That’s the only word to describe our guest pickers performance these past few weeks. We’re getting killed, KILLED in these stupid predictions after just completely flying out of the gates. Three straight incorrect win/loss predictions and two straight against the spread.
Frankly, I’m embarrassed that we’ve chosen these pickers to come on our website, give you, the reader, some important gambling predictions, only to have them completely blow it and make a mockery of everything we hold dear.
But do you feel it? I feel it. A change in the air. Let’s turn this sinking ship around with the Eagles (+1.5) vs. The Vikings in Philadelphia this weekend. It’s the return of Sammy Sleeves, which can only mean one thing….
Win/loss prediction results: 2-3
Against the spread: 3-2
The man, the myth, the legend, Pete Gas.
Pete Gasparino aka Pete Gas of the Mean Street Posse and friend of the Coggin Toboggan has a BOOK FOR SALE on Amazon about his life, his experiences wrestling for the WWE during the Attitude Era, and his career defining interview with The Coggin Toboggan earlier this year (probably).
His book, Looking at the Lights: My Path from Fan to a Wrestling Heel, can be found on Amazon (here’s the link) or at a book store near you. It will be released on March 7, 2017, but you can pre-order now.
Even though he dodged our hard hitting question about his favorite Val Venis film, Pete was a cool guy and one of the more open people we’ve interviewed on this site. Gas was definitely a better interview than those TIGHT LIPPED comedians we have on every now and again. Jesus Christ, I’m not asking you to give us material, just how about answering our silly questions with more than ONE SENTENCE. You’re supposed to be eloquent and our readers want to know what your favorite Tecmo Super Bowl team was….DON’T SASS ME.
Mike Zimmer is looking for an edge in Philadelphia.
Minneapolis, Minnesota – Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer said he would not hesitate to go to Sam Bradford for extra information as the Vikings travel to Philadelphia for a week 7 matchup.
Bradford of course spent last season with the Eagles before being traded to Minnesota prior to the start of the 2016-2017 season.
“Why wouldn’t we ask Sam about Philly? He spent an entire year there, he knows the ins and outs of Philadelphia…he knows all the best hot spots to hit up in Old City, the best sandwich places, and he totally told us about this one place on South Street that will sell you dime bags if you tell the guy a secret code word by the poster section…that’s inside information you can’t get from watching tape,” Zimmer said.
Well that’s it. It was fun while it lasted. Carson Wentz is officially a bust and the Eagles are a bunch of frauds. Sure they’re 3-2, but they’ll probably lose out for the rest of the season and finish 3-13. WE’RE BACK TO THE DARK DAYS, PEOPLE. Get down on your knees and pray to the God of your choice, because nothing is going to help us now.
I’m not in Philadelphia, but I’m sure Angelo Cataldi has already had multiple on air heart attacks and a debilitating stroke about the Eagles loss. Did he try and blame Malcolm Jenkins for DARING to raise his hand during the National Anthem a few weeks ago? I’m sure he did.
It’s all over people. It was a good few weeks wasn’t it? We were all feeling great about the Eagles, feeling our oats, crowing about our franchise QB….now we lose to a team with a racist name who didn’t even have their best player on offense.
The answer? Nobody special. I’m currently in Chicago (BOOOOOOOOO) for work and didn’t have time to line up a guest picker. SUCKS TO BE ME.
Right now whoever is running this conference is blasting songs that all have Chicago in the title, but has not played anything by Chicago yet. Oh sweet irony, you are a fickle mistress.
Eagles (-2) will look to get back on the winning track against the Washington Redskins. We are not a classy site, so yeah, we’ll say Redskins.
PREDICTION: Eagles 37, Skins 17.
Second year head coach Dave Hakstol is looking to improve upon a successful, inaugural season behind the Flyers bench.
But what can be expected of the second year coach? What are the pros and cons of the man who only has one year of experience?
The Coggin Toboggan is going to delve into what Dave Hakstol brings to the table and what the coach can improve upon in the 2016-2017 season.
Angelo Cataldi is taking a stand against San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Chip Kelly’s decision to bench quarterback Blaine Gabbert in favor of Colin Kaepernick, who has drawn national attention to his National Anthem protests this season.
The boisterous 94 WIP Morning Host said he would also take a stand and protest Kaepernick’s presence on the football field.
