A whole lot of chirping coming out of the City of Brotherly Love over this Cody Parkey fellow.  I guess he hit a few chip shots in the preseason and has Eagles fans lusting over him more than David Akers and Chris Boniol combined.

I suppose that I can’t get too angry at our little (and definitely uglier) brother dreaming of kicking greatness.  Us Giants fans have been real spoiled with championships and kicking aces going back to the Jeff Feagles glory days.  Feagles straight to Weatherford.  And absolutely no one in between.  It’s another great day to bleed blue.

ESPN- The Philadelphia Eagles have signed Alejandro Villanueva, a 6-foot-9 defensive lineman who spent the past four years as an active member of the United States Army and most recently served as a U.S. Army Ranger.

The Eagles announced the move Monday, saying in a news release that Villanueva signed a rookie free-agent contract. 

The 277-pound Villanueva served three tours in Afghanistan. He was recently promoted to captain.

The Eagles watched Villanueva, 25, perform at a regional combine in Detroit last month. He last played football in 2009 for Army as a wide receiver, converting to that position before his senior season.

Villanueva served as the Black Knights’ offensive captain in 2009 and led the team in receptions (34), yards (522) and touchdowns (five). He began his career at Army as a reserve defensive lineman and transitioned to left tackle in 2008, starting all 12 games at that position as a junior.

I love this signing for the Eagles and hate it as a Giants fan.  This guy is a GIGANTIC football player who was also an Army ranger.  He played college football in West Point, NY and did so very well at a bunch of positions.  The closest team to West Point is named the GIANTS.  Match made in freaking heaven, right?  I don’t know what Jerry Reese was doing the last few months, but it wasn’t scouting local giant badass heroes.

I think most Giants fans can agree that the Eagles have been our biggest rival the last 15 years or so.  Every year I pay attention to their moves more than any other non-Giants team.  I was stoked when Chip Kelly turned them down, then crushed when he pulled a 180 and became their coach.  This isn’t a surefire signing for the Iggles, but I sure wish it was a Big Blue signing instead.  It’s not every day that a 6’9″ former US Army Ranger who is good at football is available to your team.
