Eagles align with Angry Birds

Maybe this is the real reason why Joe Banner quit.

The Eagles have announced a partnership with Rovio Entertainment, which makes Angry Birds the official time-wasting-finger-sliding game, or something, of the Eagles.

For those of you not familiar with Angry Birds, it’s a puzzle game that allows the user to slingshot wingless birds into green pigs of various shapes an sizes.

The connection is obvious (must . . . resist . . . urge . . . to make . . . green pig joke), although it’s unknown whether the Cardinals, Seahawks, Ravens, or Falcons passed.

The video announcing the partnership hints at the possible incorporation of the Eagles into the Angry Birds game.  As Gantt points out (I won’t start stealing his lines until he has at least a week on the job), millions of kids will be disappointed when they realize that they can beat everything but the final level.

  1. what’s the over / under on an official Angry Birds NFL game starting with the Eagles and the Redskins are the pigs?

    I say 6 weeks.

  2. That last line is harmful! Lol.

    I also noticed that Reid’s cartoon doppelganger looked more Hulk and less Kool-aid Man… OH YEAHHH!

  3. “millions of kids will be disappointed when they realize that they can beat everything but the final level.”

    No better way to groom them as eagles fans

  4. I thought the Angry Birds were the hosts of the WIP Morning Show. The lead Bird: Angelo Cataldi!

  5. Philadelphia Eagles will win the Super Bowl this year . Remember the name . The Eagles have the most talented team in the NFL , bar none . The Giants will be looked at as the favorites in the East , but let’s be realistic , NY got hot at the right time . I mean the Redskins beat them twice . The Eagles finished the year on a 4 game winning streak , finished 5-1 in the division & made their team better by adding Demeco Ryans and Mychael Kendricks at linebacker . Graham & Allen are healthy and their team looks ready to dominate . …. E-A-G-L-E-S , EAGLES!!!!!!!

  6. They totally missed the best marketing promo for the NFL. The best angry bird still belongs to Bud Adams.

  7. Why not? It’s all sports “entertainment” anyway.
    At times the league takes it’s self too seriously anyway.

    This will probably help expand their fan base.

    I’m never playing Angry Birds again… and now I have to throw out my shirts.”

    Why in the world do you have multiple shirts that have Angry Birds on them?

  9. @jacksaysfu….. I appreciate the love and devotion you have for your team. I really do….but please stop with the June SB predictions. I like your additions. Philly has shored up some defensive deficiencies and, if healthy, they could make some noise come January. The problem here is that the insecurities of both your team and fanbase has led to countless “guarantees” over the years. We understand that your team has underperformed and come within a hairs breath of glory, but until your QB proves he can stay healthy and not absorb Running Back type punishment and your defense proves they can gel into a cohesive unit, then you’re still the 3rd best team in the East. Sorry bro. Talent isn’t the issue. They’ve gotta prove it on the field.

  10. @jacksaysfu

    I have been saying the same thing for almost 30 years……let’s wait and see to make any predictions.


    I agree accept the Eagles have not been the 3rd best team in the NFC East for a long time…..I really do think they have been the best team in the division for quite a number of years (even though the giants are the champs)…..it always comes down to some bonehead decision or mistakes. It really is a question of leadership that haunts the eagles. Besides, I can see how you can make the argument for 2nd best in the east, but noway can you include the Cowboys in the discussion along with Eagles and Giants as far as dominance.

  11. @b1rdbath… I said 3rd best because the ‘Boys and G-Men took it to the wire last year. Trust me when I say that it pains me deeply to give the Cowboys any love. Lol. I think your Eagles are more talented than Dallas though. I also really do like your Offseason additions. I hope for your sake that Ryans steps up as a leader immediately. Good luck.
