Sandberg Looking For Phillies to Play Small Ball This Year

Even though Citizens Bank Park is a hitter’s park look for the hometown Phillies to lead the league in bunts and not homers this summer.  As the team starts to rebuild manager Ryne Sandberg is changing the offensive approach and playing more ‘small ball’. Sandberg is looking for more bunts, hit-and-runs, and stolen bases this […]


Eagles Mock Draft 2.0

Well, to say a lot has changed since I issued my first mock draft, would be a monumental understatement.  Herremans, McCoy, Foles, Maclin, Cole, Fletcher, Allen, and Williams are all gone.  Enter Alonso, Murray, Mathews, Bradford, Thurmond, and Maxwell to remold this team into a smash mouth team built on a power running game and […]



“They don’t make ‘em like they used to.” That quote, while cliche, doesn’t apply more to anyone man than Philadelphia Eagles legend Chuck Bednarik, who passed away this morning at the age of 89. Bednarik, known as “Concrete Charlie,” epitomized the tough-guy linebacker and also was an outstanding center for the Eagles from 1949 to […]

Why Tim Tebow is Working Out in Philadelphia

Foles & Picks for Bradford: The Day After

I woke up in a cold sweat this morning after having a nightmare that the Eagles traded Nick Foles and a 2nd round pick for the oft injured Sam Bradford.  Oh wait, that actually happened.  As a lot of people sat on Twitter, ESPN, and ProFootballTalk.com, we were awaiting the 4 o’clock hour to hit […]


Kelly Sees Green, Not Black or White

Following a TV tirade by Stephen A. Smith who used to regularly write for the Inquirer, people now wonder if the moves made by Eagles head coach Chip Kelly are driven by race.  This could not be farther from the truth. Kelly does make his personnel decisions based on color.  The color he sees is […]
