Ben Simmons, Still Here

Ben Simmons, Still Here

Like every other 76ers fan, I had hoped this situation resolved itself. Long before training camp and the preseason began. Wishful thinking, sure, since every report this summer was more of the same: the reality a trade wasn’t ever close. We’re a weekend away from media day where questions will only be about Ben Simmons, [...]

Joel Embiid, Alone

Joel Embiid, Alone

Nobody feels bad for the 76ers. Why should they. Context, of course, matters. So much has happened with this franchise since Sam Hinkie took over in 2013.

It’s possible that’s where it [...]

The Eagles Hire a New Coach

The Eagles Hire a New Coach

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 [...]

Something Out of Nothing

Something Out of Nothing

In late September 2016, Carson Wentz scrambled to his right. Philadelphia had won its first two games that season, home against Cleveland and on the road in Chicago. Neither all that impressive. As Wentz moved toward the sidelines, the Eagles held a 10-point lead against the always tough Pittsburgh Steelers. It felt like backyard football [...]
