The Eagles and Carson Wentz Part Ways

Finally, after much delegation, annoying leaks and ostensibly never-ending nonsense, Carson Wentz has been traded to the Indianapolis Colts. As disastrous as it is—seriously what a calamity for a prideful organization—there’s a sense of closure now. A clean break for both parties. Winning a Super Bowl with a backup quarterback. It’s possible that’s where it

The Eagles Hire a New Coach

Three years ago to the day the Philadelphia Eagles advanced to the Super Bowl they’ve reportedly hired the replacement of the guy who led them there. Nobody really knows anything when it comes to coaching hires. I won’t repeat what’s been said before.  I was firmly in the “anyone but Josh McDaniels” camp. Although, I

Mickey and The Bear

I’ve never been to Montana. I haven’t been to plenty of places in the United States. Mickey and the Bear isn’t necessarily about Montana. It’s about people in these tricky, somewhat no-win situations across the country. Stuff that so many people go through. Money is tight. Opportunity is barren. The only plausible life direction points

A Playlist for February 2020

Somehow, it’s the end of February. It’s a bit cliché to begin any conversation with this idea that time is fleeting. Even though it often feels like it is. I’m making it a priority to write more on this website. It’s not that difficult to sit down for an hour and write about interesting things,
