    Eagles are high on the food chain, but they are still no match for humans.

    Bird hunting is good in Texas. :shoot:

    Best thing you can have is Pasta and Grilled Chicken-Water or Gatorade.
    Right before you go out eat a granola bar or gatorade bar.

    Playing us here for the 1st game was a bad idea, NO DOUBT IN MY MIND we beat you like you stole something. I hope you dont fly down here for the game you will just whind up wasting your money.

    I have an idea just give your money to Mr.McNair before the game and tell him thanks for the seats and then take your
    0-1 record back to Philly with you.:woot2 :boxing: :muscles:

    I don't know if I would eat anything "right" before a game other than some light fruit. Wouldn't want to get sick and have an episode like on the Replacements. LOL, now that is funny, I don't care who you are...:chicken:

    Pretty much the only thing you want to avoid before a game is salads and other vegetables. They don't digest as fast as other foods and they linger in your stomache.

    Pastas and meats are good options if you have them 3-4 hours out. A cup of banana and apples would set you well about 30 min. before gametime. At half time, chow down on oragnes and bananas. Avoid chugging the gatorade, it tends to make you feel bloated right after that. Enjoy it or chug your water.

    O, and the only thing I make sure I have on game day is my cherios with strawberries and bananas in the morning.

    According to the Texans nutritionist, it is best to eat your meal about 4 hours before game time, a combination of easy to digest carbs and some protein and not much fat. Fatty foods are hard to digest and deal with when you are doing lots of activity and cause upset stomachs.

    What they do is open the cafeteria early on game day and provide a wide variety of foods. Because food is an emotional thing, and a lot of guys figure they need their magic food that they have always eaten. There is some nutrition truth to that as if you always eat the same food before a game, you have a sense if it agrees with you.


    But, going back to the original hypothetical? I would choose linebacker because I would get to hit people, and I would choose scrambled eggs (with one whole egg and the rest whites), wheat toast, a little oatmeal, orange juice and lots of water.

    I know for a fact that the Eagles eat Cambles chucky soup before every game.
