Expect The Eagles Tight Ends To Take On Bigger Role

After watching the Eagles practice this off season the significance of the Birds tight end position is becoming very obvious.  Last year, Birds tight end Zach Ertz was their go to guy much of the time on third down and in the red zone.   The former Stanford tight end caught 74 passes during the […]

Eagles Had Everybody On Hand For Mandatory Workout

The Eagles had everybody present for yesterday’s mandatory workout at the Novacare Complex.  There were quite a few players who were there physically, but not practicing.
Head coach Doug Pederson made it clear that Nick Foles is the team’s starting quarterback right now.  He still thinks this is Carson Wentz team, but Foles would be the […]

Pederson Sets Exact Time For The Eagles To Turn The Page

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he wants to turn the page to the 2018 season after the Birds ring ceremony on June 15th.  He talked about all of the celebrating that has continued after the Birds stunned the football world and upset the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
I understand what Pederson is […]

Sixers Finally Part Ways With Bryan Colangelo & HIs Wife

It took longer than everyone expected but finally, the Sixers and General Manager Bryan Colangelo have parted ways.  Colangelo’s wife Barbara Bottini took responsibility for the Twitter accounts that were critical of numerous 76ers players and which distributed sensitive information about the organization.

I Agree With The NFL National Anthem Policy

The NFL has come out with a policy, which requires NFL players to stand for the National Anthem.  I agree with the policy because there are a lot of NFL fans who are totally turned off by the players kneeling.  Many of the people I know who have been life long NFL fans and especially […]

Eagles Hall of Fame safety Brian Dawkins, who was working in the Birds front office in the player evaluation area, has decided that he’s going to leave that position and begin a philanthropic endeavor of some kind.
Dawk, who is very serious about his Christian faith, believes the Lord Jesus Christ wants him to set up […]

Finally, Eagles Release Linebacker Mychal Kendricks

It wasn’t a shock yesterday, but the Eagles released former second round draft pick and six-year linebacker Mychal Kendricks.  One of the keys to why this move was made is the fact that the Eagles saved $4.4 million dollars from releasing the linebacker.  I think that money might be used to extend the contract of […]

Thoughts On Matt Jones Signing


On Wednesday morning, the Philadelphia Eagles made another move to add to their running back situation, signing former Washington Redskins’ third-round pick Matt Jones.
The Eagles worked out Jones and former Baltimore Raven Terrance West, but ended up coming to terms with Jones. Of the two, Jones probably has the bigger upside, but West was more […]

Sixers Must Make A Commitment To Play Defense

The threes weren’t falling last night for the Sixers, but it was their lack of consistency on the defensive side of the ball that doomed them.  Brett Brown and his troops must commit themselves to each other on the defensive side of the floor.  They must commit to each other that they will play hard […]

Thoughts On The Eagles’ 2018 Draft

On Trading Out Of The First Round
The Eagles’ biggest decision of the weekend came on Thursday night, when they elected to trade the 32nd overall pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for their second-rounder this year, the ability move up seven spots in the fourth round, and their second-round pick next year.
I was alright […]
