Eagles Training Camp Day 1 Recap: Everyone healthy, no new injuries

FINALLY. After what has seemed like an eternity, the Eagles were on the field for the start of training camp, practicing in pads as a team for the first time since the end of the season. It wasn’t the most eventful day in terms of on-the-field action, but that’s often a good thing, as it meant there were no new injuries or players holding out. The biggest news might have been about the Brandon Boykin … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 2015 schedule preview: Weeks 10-16

Yesterday I made predictions for each game in the first half of the season, giving them a 6-2 record with losses to the Cowboys in Dallas and to the Jets. With a relatively easy schedule, the Eagles should have no problem rolling to a hot start. Here are my predictions for the second half of the year: Week 10: Eagles vs. Dolphins The Dolphins have been stuck in mediocrity for what seems like an eternity, … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 2015 schedule preview: Weeks 1-9

With training camp just a few days away, everyone anxiously awaits one of the most fun and exciting parts of the season: roster construction. There will be 90 guys out there, but only just over half will actually make it on the final roster. Until then, I’m going to preview the regular season, going game by game and finishing with an overall record prediction. Here we go: Week 1: Eagles at Falcons (Monday Night Football) … Continue reading

Top 40 Chart: Philadelphia Eagles roster edition (Part 2)

After ranking players 21-40 on the Eagles’ roster yesterday, I ranked the top 20 guys on the team here. Like I mentioned before, this was a difficult task and I’m willing to hear arguments to move players around, but here’s what I had: UPDATE: After some discussion on Twitter, I switched the guys at #2 and #3. 20. RB Ryan Mathews Mathews has been a starter in the past and has been great when healthy. … Continue reading

Top 40 Chart: Philadelphia Eagles roster edition (Part 1)

Ranking the players on the Philadelphia Eagles roster is a daunting task, but fun at the same time. This will almost surely spark some sort of debate, as this is just a first draft of my rankings. Feel free to make your arguments for or against certain players’ positions in the rankings. Ranking players together who are asked to do completely different tasks for a team is hard, but in the end, everyone likes rankings. … Continue reading

Vinny Curry is the most underrated player on the Eagles

For a while, Eagles’ pass-rushing defensive end Vinny Curry has been one of my favorite players on the Eagles. He seems to quietly outplay most teams’ backup defensive ends, but because of the fact that he is indeed a backup, it’s hard for him to get the recognition he deserves. Now, calling somebody the “best backup in the league” is kind of a strange compliment, and when it comes down to it, isn’t all that … Continue reading

Summer Sixers Recap: Philadelphia finishes 1-2 in Utah

It may be the middle of the summer, but #SummerSixers were in full force this past week or so, finishing up their three-game stretch in the Utah Summer League. After falling to the host Jazz team last night, 84-78 in overtime, they will now look to focus on the most important part of summer league: Las Vegas. But, before they move into that, let’s recap a bit and give an overview and analysis of how … Continue reading

Sixers fall to Spurs in Utah Summer League opener

Most Sixers fans only turned on the TV Monday night to watch Jahlil Okafor play his first game as a member of the team. They were likely not disappointed. Okafor put up 20 points, nine rebounds and two blocks on the night, but it still wasn’t enough to take down the Spurs in Salt Lake City. He had a bit of a rough start, going 3/11 in the first half, but he bounced back with … Continue reading

Ranking the most overpaid and underpaid players on Eagles

For various reasons, it’s quite difficult to accurately pay a player based on his performance and future expectations. Things such as leverage (which can go both ways), agent, past performance/experience, age, etc. have an effect on how much a player is going to be paid. Sometimes, players are overpaid basically because the team doesn’t have the money to spend on anyone else (see Nate Allen in Oakland). With just under a month before Eagles training … Continue reading

Recap and analysis of the Sixers picks in 2015 NBA draft

I’m not going to lie, nothing seemed to go the Sixers’ way last night during the NBA draft. I can’t help but feel a bit underwhelmed with what they came away with. The Lakers threw a wrench into their plans when they selected Ohio State point guard D’Angelo Russell with the second pick in the draft, despite many rumors that the Lakers were “locked in” at drafting Jahlil Okafor. Here’s a recap and analysis of … Continue reading
