Matt Barkley Impressive in Eagle's Offseason Workouts

While there is no doubt that the QB battle in Philadelphia will be between Michael Vick and Nick Foles, Eagles fans have to be happy with initial reports from the National Football Post that Matt Barkley has looked very good so far during workouts. Matt Barkley who many thought would be drafted in the top 3 in the 2012 draft if he elected to go, instead opted to stay another year in USC and fell all the way to the fourth round in the 2013 draft. However this could be a blessing for Barkley as he will get time to develop into a NFL caliber QB instead of being thrown into the fire. You don't become rated as a top 3 player in the draft (even if it was the past) without there being talent. Maybe the Eagles struck gold with their mid pick and he becomes the franchise QB of the future. What do you guys think? Click on the arrows to see his 2012 highlights. Photo Credit: CSNPhilly

NFL Dads Tackle Hair Styling In This Pantene Campaign.
Every year, major sponsors shell out some serious cash to grab our attention during the Super Bowl, by far the largest single sporting event of the year. They enlist A-List celebrities, bust out the CGI, and have the ability to transform a typical 30-second spot into a minute long movie of epic proportions. However, if there's one thing that these companies can learn from haircare brand Pantene this year, it's that turning on America's feels doesn't have to be that complicated - just bring in the adorableness of some NFL kids! Pantene's 'Dad-Do' Super Bowl campaign features a number of popular NFL fathers taking a stab at styling their daughters' hair with Pantene products. Like you could probably guess, they definitely struggle through it, but with some adorable encouragement from their daughters, the results are very much 'aww'-worthy. (My personal favorite is pictured above: DeAngelo Williams of the Pittsburgh Steelers versus his daughter Rhiya's braids and bows.) Benjamin Watson, tight end for the New Orleans Saints, displayed some pigtail game earning an impressed high five from his daughter, Grace. (He tried to argue that bigger hands make it hard for athletes to style hair, but he didn't do too bad for a first-timer!) The Dallas Cowboys' Jason Witten's adorable daughter Landry was SUPPOSED to get a braided ballerina bun, but let's just say there were some complications on the way. (Hey, if there's anything the Cowboys learned this season, it's that you can't win 'em all!) Click the video above for a look at the finished 30-second Super Bowl ad, or visit Pantene's official YouTube Channel to watch the full styling videos from each athlete. So how do you think they did? Was this concept just as adorable to you as it was to me? Let me know in the comments below and for more trending videos from across the web, follow my YouTube Nation collection!
Some Thoughts From the Thanksgiving Games
Not the best games ever but a great day of football nonetheless. Here's what I saw today. How about you? The Lions Offense Awakens: Stafford nearly threw for 400 yards, Megatron catches 11 passes for 146 yards and 2 TDs, and the running game materialised in the form of Joique Bell. They have been criticized for their lack of offense for the past few weeks but they found the answer and showed why they can't be disregarded in this year's playoff race. The Bears Defense stinks: They simply got shredded in all aspects tonight and on the road the Bears defense is simply terrible. They will not win games with this defense hands down. The Bears Offense Talented but No Results: The Bears were contained all night with the lone exception of Alshon Jeffrey's two TDs in the first half. Forte only got 6 carries for 5 yards and you simply cannot just give up on the run like that no matter how good the opponent's run defense is... unless you are Tom Brady and the Pats. The Cowboys Defense is a Liability: The Cowboys defense has been pretty good for most of the season, doing enough to win, but they have been exposed by the Giants last week and the Eagles this week. The Cowboys offense may be vaunted but they need to be perfect if they want to win with this defense. The Seahawks Back To Championship Form: My Niners were lost today but you have to give the Seahawks a lot of the credit. They came to play and simply outplayed the Niners in all facets of the game. The Seahawks defense was playing sound and Beast Mode was back at it today pounding for hard earned yards. The Niners chances of making it to the playoffs took a big hit while the Seahawks look to make some noise this year once again.
Love It Or Hate It: Live Sporting Events?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about SELFIE STICKS. It was an EXTREMELY tight vote, but out of the 60 who gave your opinion, 33 of you said that they're actually kind of useful! Soooo... SELFIE STICKS WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about attending live sports games? Spectator sports have been around since the days of Ancient Greece, but the ones we know and love today came into being in the mid 19th century! The number of Americans that attend at least one live sporting event annually is easily in the tens of millions. However, the amount of them that find said sporting event COMPLETELY BORING is still widely unknown. How do YOU feel about spectator sports? Are they tons of fun or brutally boring? Debate, debate, debate! @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx
