Phillies Fans Will Have To Face Up To The Truth

If the Phillies offensive struggles during spring training wasn’t enough of an indication as to what fans should expect from this season’s Fightins, then their 2.3 rpg in the Pirates season factored in by their two-run output against the Marlins in game one of that series should convince the Philly faithful that this team is […]

The Sixers Play Basketball The Old Fashioned Way – As A Team

They don’t have a thirty-point scorer like Allen Iverson.  There’s no championship-level head coach like Larry Brown. You could even make a case for them not having five players over the age of 26, but somehow, some way with just ten games into the season, the Sixers find themselves atop of the Atlantic Division with […]

Hopefully Eagles Defense Will Be More Prepared Than New England Game

It’s been a long time since the 2011 Eagles entered the aftermath of the NFL’s lockout with more optimism than any other team in the league. After landing a slew of big name stars mostly on the defensive side of the ball, the Birds were picked as the preseason favorite to represent the NFC in […]

Defensive Line Set The Stage For Eagles Victory

I was hesitant to say that the Eagles were facing a make it or break it situation heading into their 34-7 pasting of the division-rival Dallas Cowboys, but it was in fact a game that will hopefully set the tone for the rest of the season for the Birds.
After showing off an impressive defensive […]

Eagles Defense Made Niners 32nd Ranked Offense Look Great

Going into this past Sunday’s matchup against the NFC West San Francisco 49ers, there wasn’t a worry in the world that the Eagles would come out on top. The Birds would finally figure out things on defense under defensive coordinator Juan Castillo which in turn would finally take him out of the hot seat for […]

Eagles D Looks To Tackle This Week Instead Of Playing “Two-Hand” Touch

After seemingly playing “two-hand” touch football last week against the conference rival Giants, the Eagles defense will look to rebound this week. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. A team filled of collegiate level safeties and linebackers could have tackled better in their 29-16 loss to the G-Men.
At this point the […]

Castillo And His Group Got The Job Done, But They Must Get Better

“Will the Eagles defense be ready to handle the Rams dynamic offense come week 1?” That was the question people were asking before the season’s first game.
The Birds answered some of these types of questions this weekend in their 31-13 victory against St. Louis. Yes, the same defense that includes a mix of savvy […]

Eagles Defense Ready To Stop Bradford And Jackson

While most of the focus recently has been directed toward the Eagles offensive line this week as the Eagles approach their season opener against the Rams, spectators should not overlook all the money and player signings that have been inserted into their newly revamped defense. The Birds have boasted about their much improved roster and […]
