Ron Jaworski Garoppolo Is Like Young & Montana He Can Be A Hall Of Famer!

9/8/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Garoppolo's only started five games for the 49ers, but that's all Ron Jaworski's needed to see -- 'cause he's telling TMZ Sports the S.F. QB "absolutely" can be a Hall of Famer!!

"When I see a Garoppolo," Jaws says, "I see a guy that the sky is the limit."

The ex-Eagles QB tells us he loves the way Jimmy plays with his mind, arm and legs ... and says he's basically a cross between TWO Niners legends.

"You've got a Joe Montana, Steve Young kind of guy in San Francisco right now, and that's going to be the pillar of that football team for a good decade," Jaworski says.

FYI ... Jimmy's only thrown 272 passes in his five-year NFL career and only has 12 passing touchdowns.

Sooo ... too early for the lofty praise?? Maybe ... but we know of at least one person who probably agrees with Ron ...

Ron Jaworski Nick Foles Can't Win Eagles' QB Job ... No Matter How He Plays!!

9/6/2018 3:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There is not a thing Nick Foles can do this season to take Philadelphia's starting QB job away from a healthy Carson Wentz ... so says Eagles legend Ron Jaworski.

"The Eagles have made it crystal clear their franchise quarterback is Carson Wentz," Jaws tells TMZ Sports.

"He's the guy that's going to be the quarterback for the next decade."

Of course, Foles -- who Jaws says will one day have a statue outside the Linc -- is getting the starting nod tonight against the Falcons and perhaps for even a few more games after that -- as Wentz tries to return from a torn ACL.

But ... according to Jaws -- even if Foles balls out of his mind in Wentz's stead ... there will be no QB controversy when Carson gets back.

BTW ... Ron -- who predicted the Eagles SB run last year AFTER Wentz went down -- put on his Nostradamus hat again and gave us his prediction for tonight's NFL opener ... and while you probably can guess who he thinks will win, his score might surprise you!!

Mychal Kendricks Sold Out Ex-Eagles Teammates ... To Browns

8/30/2018 6:13 AM PDT
Breaking News

Before Mychal Kendricks was charged with insider trading, he sold out his ex-Philadelphia Eagles teammates to the Browns ... giving a full scouting report on the guys he played with last year. 

It was all captured on HBO's "Hard Knocks" -- when defensive coordinator asked the linebacker to come up with a list of weaknesses he learned about his teammates during his time in Philly. 

Kendricks didn't even hesitate -- putting together a Eagles cheat sheet like a double agent ... and then presented all of his info during a team meeting before they clashed in last week's preseason game. 

Here's the info ... 

"Uh, let's start with Nick Foles. Playing with Nick Foles, I realized on his long balls, his deep balls, he has like a teardrop effect. He's tall and he likes to drop that literally from the sky. So corners, and the timing's just a little slower on that ball coming in."

"86 [Zach Ertz], I think, is the best receiver on the team. Notice I said 'receiver.' When it comes to blocking, you f*cking hit his ass over and over, he doesn't want any smoke."

"Big V, Vaitai. He's so big that his size allows him to do what he does. You see, but he doesn't have the quickest feet and he's not the strongest. He doesn't trust his feet at all. You get on him, his confidence will go down."

Look, we get it ... sometimes teams will bring in players for their knowledge about their former team -- but this one felt especially snitchy. 

And, now that Kendricks has been cut by the Browns after he was hit with federal criminal charges -- he's gotta ask himself ... was it worth it? 

Eagles Fans Troll Patriots With Flying Super Bowl Banner

8/16/2018 4:37 PM PDT
Breaking News

It's been 192 days since Super Bowl LII ... but in case anybody in New England forgot what happened that game -- Eagles fans have them covered WITH A BIG-ASS FLYING BANNER!!

The Pats and Eagles play in a little S.B. rematch Thursday night ... and Philly fans were kind enough to remind New England how their last go-around went -- with an airplane over Gillette Stadium.

The sign -- in big, bold, red letters -- reads, "41-33 Philly Philly SB LII."

Of course ... the Eagles whooped the Pats, 41-33, to win their first-ever Super Bowl back in February.

A lot less is on the line in preseason Week 2 ... but we're pretty sure Tom Brady's still pissed.

Mayor Of Philadelphia Wants Nick Foles to Start ... Week 1

8/14/2018 12:13 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Mayor of Philadelphia knows his football -- and tells TMZ Sports when the Eagles kick off the regular season, he wants to see Nick Foles under center ... not Carson Wentz

Of course, there's a bit of a QB controversy in Philly -- Wentz is an absolute stud but Foles got the job done in the playoffs and was named MVP of the Super Bowl. 

But, Mayor Jim Kenney says it's not a debate in his mind -- he wants to see Foles as the starter ... no disrespect to Wentz. 

In fact, Kenney says he knows Wentz is still nursing that knee injury -- and he doesn't want to see Carson rush back before he's absolutely 100% healthy. 

In a way, it's actually a compliment to Carson. 

Either way, a problem choosing between 2 studs is a good problem to have. 

Eddie Alvarez Gets $143,000 Van For Eagles Tailgate Party

7/28/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Pay attention, tailgaters ... UFC star Eddie Alavarez is about to show you how it's done -- 'cause he just copped the most awesome $143k tailgating machine ever!!

Here's the thing ... Alvarez is from Philly and he's a HUGE Eagles fan ... who loves to tailgate before football games.

How do you do that if you're a big-time UFC star?

You do it in a Winnebago Era (new ones starts at $142,925) ... which is a tricked out luxury leisure machine built on a Mercedes Sprinter van chassis ... which Eddie hooked up with a TV.

"Hell yeah man, we got a RV now. I got a RV where I can head down to the stadium to tailgate," Alvarez told us.

"It's pretty. It's real pretty. We took it to a concert about a week ago and it was the talk of the town. Everyone was surrounding it."

Of course, the cost ain't a thing for Eddie ... he's the main event at UFC on FOX 30 Saturday where he's fighting Dustin Poirier, and we're guessing he'll make his scratch back. 

Fly Birds, fly!

Terrell Owens Belichick, Brady & Pats Are Cheaters!!

7/17/2018 2:39 PM PDT
Breaking News

Terrell Owens says Tom Brady is a cheater. Ditto for Bill Belichick and the rest of the Patriots ... and it's all on video. 

T.O. was playing some pickup basketball with Sam Cassell -- and, while joking around after the game, he playfully accused Sam of cheating. That's when the anti-Pats trash talk began.

"You sound like the Patriots. You know what I mean?" T.O. says ... "I don't care about the Patriots. Belichick, Brady -- they cheaters. They cheated. They cheated."

So, why the attack?

Well, the Pats beat T.O.'s Eagles in Owens' only Super Bowl appearance back in 2005 -- and just a few years later ... they were busted for Spygate.

Owens still seems to have a soft spot for Brady, though ... 'cause when Sam says he'd be a Pro Bowl player TODAY if he were playin' with the G.O.A.T. -- Owens doesn't disagree.

EXCLUSIVE

Mark Wahlberg says he believes in Baker Mayfield -- so he placed a REAL bet on the Cleveland Browns to win 6 games in 2018. 

Yeah, he's being serious. 

Don't worry, he also made some less risky wagers -- betting on the Patriots and the Eagles to get back to the Super Bowl this season.  

Wahlberg also bet on Ronda Rousey -- casting her in his new movie, "Mile 22" ... and he's super fired up about her role in the flick. 

Mark raves about Ronda's performance and says she's more than just an action star -- she's a legit actress who nailed her dramatic scenes like a boss!!!

The movie -- which opens next month -- will be Ronda's most important Hollywood role yet. Of course, she starred in the "Entourage" movie ... but played herself. 

Now, she's got a real shot to follow stars like The Rock ... and parlay action sports stardom into a real Hollywood career. 

... and Mark Wahlberg is clearly a fan. 

Tom Brady Congratulates LeGarrette Blount On Eagles Super Bowl Ring

6/18/2018 4:04 PM PDT
Breaking News

Here's a classy move from Tom Brady ... praising his former teammate, LeGarrette Blount, on the new Super Bowl ring he got by BEATING the Patriots!

Remember, Blount won 2 rings during his time as a running back in New England -- and it seems he and Brady got along pretty well. 

But, Blount signed with the Eagles last season and was a key member of the squad that beat the Patriots in Super Bowl 52. 

So, when LB posted his 3 rings on Instagram, Brady felt compelled to comment -- saying, "You have EARNED them my brother!"

By the way, Blount is making a run to catch his friend in the ring department ... Brady only has 2 more Super Bowl rings than he does.

Breaking News

The Philadelphia Eagles got their diamond-studded Super Bowl rings at a massive party Thursday night with a very special guest performer ... Meek Mill!

The rapper -- along with Rick Ross -- busted out song after song while the players rocked out in the crowd -- a special moment because his "Dreams and Nightmares" song was the team's anthem.

During the set at Noto nightclub, Meek grabbed the mic and told the players, "If I ever had to say I had my best night in prison it was the day the Eagles won the f*cking Super Bowl."

The players loved it -- with guys like Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, Corey Clement, LeGarrette Blount and Torrey Smith having the time of their lives. Lil Uzi Vert was also there! 

As for the rings, they're dope -- 10-karat white gold with 219 diamonds and 17 rare green sapphires.

The 127 diamonds on the bezel represent the combined jersey numbers of the three players who touched the football during the Philly Special play -- Corey Clement (30), Trey Burton (88) and Nick Foles (9).

Cool, right?

There's also an underdog mask inscribed on the inside of the ring. 

Congrats!!!

Terry Bradshaw is sticking up for the Philadelphia Eagles ... telling TMZ Sports he supports their decision to not go to the White House -- saying, "1st Amendment rights, I totally believe in it."

The "FOX NFL Sunday" star didn't mince his words when we asked about the issue -- telling us, "I agree with the Eagles. Totally. 100 percent." 

When asked about Donald Trump specifically, Bradshaw said ... "Trump just needs to ... he just needs to go somewhere and enjoy the money he's got."

Bradshaw continued ... "You know what's so bad about that whole event? Was how they were portrayed as protesting, kneeling, during the national anthem when they were praying. That is just wrong."

For the record, FOX News issued a statement after that incident -- saying, "We apologize for the error."

Ben Simmons Hits Same Club as Tinashe ... Reconciling?

6/8/2018 9:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

With Kendall Jenner apparently out of the picture, Ben Simmons MIGHT be trying to rekindle things with Tinashe ... because the two hit the same nightclub on Thursday. 

The 21-year-old Philadelphia 76ers star and the 25-year-old singer both hit up Poppy nightclub in West Hollywood ... and left right around the same time. 

Ben left solo at 1:37 AM on Friday morning and Tinashe left about 20 minutes later at 1:56 AM. 

The two had dated for a couple of months before recently splitting -- Ben was seen out a short time later going on dates with Kendall. 

But, Kendall was sucking face with Anwar Hadid in New York City earlier this week -- a sign it's probably over with Ben -- and now, he coincidentally shows up at the same club as his ex?

Hmmmm ...

Shocking statement from Terrell Owens ... who says he has officially TURNED DOWN his invitation to attend his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony. 

Owens says he will NOT go to Canton, Ohio for the ceremony in August -- instead, he will "celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere."

T.O. did not explain the reason behind his decision -- he did, however, praise the NFL and the H.O.F.

"While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton."

"I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere. At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction."

"I would also like to thank the San Francisco 49ers, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys, the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals for the time I was granted with each organization. I am thankful for the relationships forged and the lessons learned while part of each team."

"I wish to congratulate all past, current and future inductees. It is quite an honor to be part of such elite company. This honor is something that I will cherish forever."
