I'm an Eagles fan, so ANY bar I go into turns into an Eagles bar .

I like Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the games, if you are nice enough they put your game on one of the huge 15 foot? screens...Wings are usually very good. No smoking inside, outside has crappy TV's.

Goal Post is a nice bar but they rarely have the audio on the game you want....and no cheap beer specials. Food is pretty good, bartenders are hit or miss. Smoking allowed in the outdoor bar with nice TV's.

If you like dive bars, Q's Bar and Girl (not a misprint) will usually turn one of the two or three flat-screens on your channel with audio..cheap pitchers of beer but no food (they will give you a delivery menu though). That is a good place if you have 10 friends and want to find a place to sit at the bar and watch your game, and smoke inside...and order in food from your favorite place.

Port 'o Call is another dive bar, more busy than Q's but they have more TV's (every NFL game is on, but get there early to get a seat in front of the right TV), and they have a football pool on the 4 o'clock games. The pool is free to get into, and if you win you get free food and drinks the following Sunday in the back room while watching your game with audio on the big TV. Smoking allowed inside. Warning..this is certainly a dive bar.....

I've been to most bars around and these are my go-to football bars. I'm sure I am forgetting a couple though. I mention smoking cause I usually have money riding on the games, so I gotta smoke.

It really doesn't matter since you are a Raven's fan, you will have to sit in the back corner with a 13" TV and like it!

I thought I was the only Nascar fan left....During football season fuggetaboutit at bars. I'm looking to watch Nascar with someone that understands it though...send me a PM if you want to come over next weekend. I usually scream at the TV while my GF looks at me funny. To most people Nascar is like flushing a bunch of Skittles down the toilet....round and round.

By the way football fans, I run a pool every year. It is through Yahoo. PORT CHARLOTTE SHARKS GROUP ID# 27553...I just renewed it 2 minutes ago so I'm the only one registered so far, but we normally have about 20 people entered. I'm hoping for 40 this year. Free to enter but most get "in the pot", info will be posted before the year starts. This link may or may not get you to the sign up page...Password is "football". Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Pro Football Pickem - There was a problem

It is a "Pick'em" pool, not fantasy league...so it's easy, just pick the winners.

I won't sit in the back! I'll sit in the FRONT, with my pitcher of Yeungling, and expect - since your an Egals fan - that I'll have a battery chucked at my head. No worries though, when that happens I know its you! LOL

Forgive me! The season hasn't even started yet - its way to early for this kinda smack talk. ;-) I don't want to get smack talk started on this forum (unless its on the fishing thread.)

My niece is an Eagles fan, I can deal with that easier then a squeelers fan. .But when Vick gets hurt where will the Eagles be?

so glad I have a place to do some trash talk. Guess I will be sitting with Big House in the front, maybe my husband will even come join us.

I would love to see Vick on the bench. I'd rather see Foles or Edwards any day of the week. I never thought Vick was any good.

Vick and Reid are the weak links.
