How Much Do Single-Family Homes in Media Cost? Here Are 5 Good Answers

Media is the county seat of Delaware County, and is about a half an hour from Philadelphia. With a population just over 5,000, you’d think it would feel like a small town. But you can actually get many of the comforts of life in Media, like decent Thai food and trolley service to Center City.

Media was also apparently the first Fair Trade town in America. How ’bout that.

    Just one of the five homes above is actually in the borough of Media. Also, there is a regional rail station just outside Media Borough, but well within walking distance of any location in the borough, which runs to center city. The trolley is not the only option for getting to center city. In fact the trolley will take you only to 69th street transportation center, from where you will have to take the Market Frankford El or a bus to get to center city.

    Start Earl Wolff. I don’t care if he’s a rookie. At least he will hit someone. At least he will tackle someone. Nate Allen sucks.

    Another failed pick by Andy Reid

  • JBrooks

    Seems like its just another WR for camp. Chip mentioned already that they need some guys for practices but that they already had enough WRs to start the season. Makes a lot of sense, he knows how Kelly practices, might surprise some of the current guys on the bubble and help them kick it into gear. Either way it cant hurt! #BleedGreen

  • Richard Colton

    One of the regular posters predicted this move over a week ago. It was Jeff or Rob (I think?). Will someone step forward for credit and to tell us a little more why you liked this guy.

    Vick deep to Jackson, Vick rifles one to Jackson. Vick unleashes a bomb to Jackson.

    Not hearing a lot of Foles rifling anything to Jackson. I don’t think Foles can get Jackson the ball, which is what we have to do. Jackson is as important to our offense as he has ever been and Foles’ arm is too weak to hit him deep. Foles would use him on intermediate routes which would get him laid out over the middle

    • notAvickhater

      No one ever said Vick doesn’t have a strong arm. I think the argument for the pro Foles camp is which is the better QB.

      • #7

        The numbers in the first game and in practice says Vick is better. It will play out. I’m glad they are competing for the job. Brings or the best in Vick and makes Foles a better player if we need him off the bench

        As Shiel has said, seems like this has happened 2,324 times lol. Shiel is not being biased and I love it

  • cliff henny

    ok howie, you got the trading and ex duck part correct, just wrong player. now, go call Buffalo and pry Byrd away from them

  • DunedinEagle

    Can’t help but wonder what the texans see in Menkin. Having zero faith in the Eagles personnel department will do that to a fan.

  • Fly High

    OK, I think there are some inaccurate thought about Maehl here. He is not just some Will Murphy Oregon camp body. Maehl was a 2 star DB recruit who turned into a dominant receiver in college. He had a slow 40 time, but the fastest shuttle time in the combine, as I remember. Maehl has great hands, runs great routes and is very shifty. He could be a very good receiver that never got a chance with Houston. For what we gave up, that was a brilliant deal. Maehl could make the team, even though he got here late, and I think even has a chance to be the #2 WR this year.

    • BlindChow

      I don’t know, Houston has been looking for a viable #2 receiver to draw attention away from Andre Johnson for awhile. If he couldn’t make it there…

  • d.j

    Now make a trade for another Duck.. pry Boyett off the colts. next year, Wolff at strong, boyett at free.. – problem finally solved.

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    Who called it? I know someone did?

  • Brian

    Momah = disappointment

  • BDAWKS

    the more i look into this kid the better this deal looks he was tops in a lot of agility and quickness drills. broke the record of 11+ years in the 3 cone drill which is done by WR TE and RB’s 12 TDs in his senior yr over 1,000 receiving yrds. plays hard great hands plus was a 3 star recruit at safety coming out of H.S.as bad as our safeties are playing maybe he can comeback to the D couldn’t be any worse could he? lol

  • GEagle

    I don’t ask for much,,,,just give me 16 games from our starting Olineman and 16 games for Desean and I will be happy..

    On the defense, Just give me 16 Games from Barwin and Meco(two guys I see no replacements for)…By week 10, If Kendrick’s goes down, Knott should be an adequate band aid by then….There is no friggin way we keep Jamar Chaney over Jake Knott..I guess Ancho is probably his real competition

    As for Vinny Curry, if you can get to the QB there will always be a role and snaps for you…The extent of his role will be determined by how he develops against the run..

    I was blown away by Benny Logan….word on him was that LSU held him back, and I had NO IDEA he had that type of agility and motor. I did not know he was capable of getting after it like that. I expected him to be a sound, dirty work, strong mike Patterson type…but he flashed more potential than that on Friday…I’m praying he has a similar performance against Carolina’s 1’s..

    I heard my first Damien Square as an Eagle interview yesterday, and the moment he was done talking, right away I thought….SOLD!!!! Lol He is labeled as a technician with limited athletic ability. he is also labeled as a high Charecter guy, but you can just hear the intensity, the rage and tenacity in his voice and I haven’t heard too many people talk like that around these parts. I think our coaches really like him and I will be shocked if he doesn’t make this roster…Who knows, two years of an NFL strength and conditioning program might bring us a pretty decent rotational guy.

    As For Antonio Dixon? what ya gonna do brother? the young puppies stepped up and put themselves on the map last week. Whatever injury your body is dealing with, you gonna have to suite up and play through it Brah, and you better show up and make an impact!!! Logan,Square,Curry will all be elevated and get some extra opportunities…If they show up against 1’s, and you don’t make some noise….it’s over for you. STEP YO GAME UP SON!!! Lol

    • Token

      Did you take a leave of absence because of the Benn injury? I hope you had enough time to grieve properly.

  • Jack Waggoner

    Kelce is a born leader and it’s something you notice right away about him.
