Avonte Maddox Has The Skills To Play Slot Corner

After watching some footage of Pittsburgh cornerback Avonte Maddox, the first of the Eagles fourth round draft picks, I’m thinking the Eagles are drafting a slot corner.  He’s definitely got the quickness and toughness to play that position.
The Eagles definitely have a need at that position with Patrick Robinson signing with the Saints and Jalen […]

Dallas Goetert Could Be Asked To Replace Both Brent Celek and Trey Burton

I can’t say definitely that the Dallas Cowboys wanted to draft a tight end in the second round of this year’s draft, but all of the talk about the possible retirement of their long-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten had everybody thinking tight end for them in the second round.  Clearly the Eagles had […]

The Quarterbacks Will Tell The Story Of The 2018 NFL Draft

The key to anticipating what’s going to happen in this year’s NFL draft is to keep an eye on the quarterbacks.  NFL general managers and head coaches start to sweat more and more the closer they get to the draft.  They sweat because they start thinking about their lack of job security and how quickly […]

Sixers Should Make It Clear From The Start

The Sixers need to close this series out tonight against the Miami Heat.  They must exhibit the “killer instinct”.  I want them to jump on the Heat from the start to let them know this is going to end tonight.
They can’t play around with the Heat and let them leave Philadelphia with any “playoff life” […]

The Sixers Path To The NBA Finals Is Wide Open

We knew it was going to happen, but nobody expected the Philadelphia 76ers to be going to the NBA Finals in 2018, but it’s definitely possible as I look at the way the Eastern Conference playoffs at the moment. I’m not awed by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Toronto Raptors or the […]

The Eagles Will Be Trusting In Romance With The 32nd Pick

The Eagles will be trusting that romance or bromance will help them as the 32nd pick in the draft approaches on Thursday night in Dallas, Texas, which is where the 2018 NFL Draft will take place.  The Birds need a team to fall in love with a player on the board at that time, so […]

Thoughts On The Eagles’ 2018 Schedule

Week 1 vs Atlanta
I’m shocked that the season opener didn’t turn out to be against the Minnesota Vikings or Dallas Cowboys. On paper, I’d think those would make for much more compelling season-opening matchups. But instead the Eagles will take on Falcons in a rematch of the Divisional Round playoff game. Matt Ryan and the […]

Blount Signs With Lions, As Eagles Release Curry, Who Signs With Bucs

Yesterday the Eagles lost two starters from their Super Bowl Championship squad.  They released veteran defensive end Vinny Curry after trying to restructure and reduce his deal.  The Birds biggest and most physical running back from a year ago, LeGarrette Blount, was in Detroit on Friday and he signed a deal with the Lions.
According to […]

Eagles Sign Bradham, Ngata and Nelson

Yesterday Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham signed a five-year $40 million dollar deal with the Birds.  I think this was a great move by the Birds because I thought Bradham was surely headed elsewhere.  He said two other teams had shown a serious desire to acquire his services.   and he emphasized his trust in team […]

Phillies Sign Cubs Ace Jake Arrieta To A Three-Year Deal

It’s amazing how the sports atmosphere in Philadelphia has changed so much since the Eagles won the Super Bowl.  The players for the Sixers, Flyers and Phillies have been inspired to step up and take the challenge.  Both the Sixers and Flyers went on winning streaks.  In addition, the front offices of those teams are […]
