Rob Chakler—Editor for Upper Moreland and Lower Moreland Patches. Rob is also a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Thomas Sunnergren—Editor of the Phoenixville Patch. Tom gets to cover "Blobfest" since Phoenixville is where the legendary movie "The Blob" was filmed. He's also a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles.

James Boyle—Editor of the Warminster Patch. He's also a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Jesseka Kadylak—Editor of Northampton Patch. Having grown up in the Steel City of Pittsburgh, she has been a die-hard Steelers fan since birth (heck, she even snuck her Terrible Towel in her wedding photos).

Just curious about something...if a majority of the editors predicting these games are Eagles fans, why are the Giants listed first and are the only team bolded? Doesn't seem right.
Dino Ciliberti (Editor) September 21, 2012 at 08:45 PM
Oh Nick, it's just a coding thing. They were the first game of the week. And being a true Eagles fan, I picked against them! But we'll beat them next week!
Jesseka Kadylak (Editor) September 21, 2012 at 08:45 PM
@Nick—Whichever team wins gets their name bolded after the game. The Giants won last night. And the games are listed in order from Thursday to Sunday to Monday games—not in order of favorites.
Daryl Nerl (Editor) September 27, 2012 at 05:45 AM
No you won't, Dino. If you ask me, the defending Super Bowl champs ought to be listed first every week.
