Philadelphia Sports: The era of disappointment


The identity of the Philadelphia fan; it’s been reduced to a patient bystander, circling a future date in the 2020’s that one of the four teams will contend for a championship.
Lacking credible substance, draft positioning and the acquisition of future assets has become the obsession. Patience, rebuild, process, not a request but a demand from […]

Eagles 7-round mock draft


Round 1 (Pick 14)-Dalvin Cook, RB-Florida State
In a deep running back class, the argument will be made that the Eagles could wait on a three down running back, but Cook is exactly the type of explosive play-maker needed for this offense.  He has the vision and big play potential that would flourish as both a […]

Do the deal 2.0


Pick #14 of the 2017 draft should be sent to the New Orleans Saints in return for wide receiver Brandin Cooks.  Since the start of the Andy Reid era, “two” receivers (Jackson-2008, Maclin-2009) have been drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles who were both playmakers and had the ability to play the outside receiving role.  By […]

Eagles Pre-Combine Thoughts


The NFL Combine is set to begin, manipulating draft boards and mock drafts after men in snug fitted shirts and shorts go through a plethora of drills.  Sprinkle in the start of the NFL tampering period prior to the new league beginning on March 9th, the potential to improve the underwhelming Philadelphia Eagles roster is […]

Tank-a-thon 4.0


The Philadelphia 76ers, they have returned to their losing ways.  It’s time for the fans that have not already done so; shift from 8th seed playoff mindset and digest the reality of the situation. The high of a ten win January led by Joel Embiid which included a Friday night nationally televised game against the […]

How will Eagles respond in second half of 2016?

Doug Pederson has yet to sport a losing record as the Eagles head coach; that is likely to change if recent history fails to correct itself.  The Eagles have only salvaged a single victory in the last six weeks if you want to count the bye week, and a combination of turnovers, questionable play-calling, dropped […]

Can Brian Dawkins impact the Steelers game?


The Pittsburgh Steelers entered the 2016 season as a Super Bowl contender while the Philadelphia Eagles were a team in rebuild mode.  These two  undefeated teams meet on Sunday, who leaves Lincoln Financial field with their first loss?
The last time the Steelers were in Philadelphia for a regular season game was 2008, a 15-6 win […]

Bigger statement: 2013 Chip Kelly or 2016 Carson Wentz?


Still shy of a full week since the Carson Wentz era began, his performance against the Cleveland Browns continues to gain steam both locally and nationally.  The rookie was poised, in control, making throws of a seasoned quarterback.   Experts on ESPN have since gushed with excitement for the rookie. The president of the United States […]

Embracing the rookie quarterback


Carson Wentz will start week one against the Cleveland Browns.  A new era begins for the Philadelphia Eagles.  This storyline was “fiction” two weeks ago, but a devastating injury to quarterback Teddy Bridgewater rerouted the all but certain redshirt season.
Rookie quarterbacks generally struggle. They provide small glimpses of what the future holds for the franchise, […]

Eagles vs. Steelers: What to watch for


Do the wide receivers want to play? 
Philadelphia fans have an eye for talent; but their sense of smell can sniff out guys who don’t have the “desire” to play. Watching the likes of Rueben Randle, Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff and Chris Givens last week was dreadful.  As if going through the motion of non-contact […]
