Farewell, Malcolm Jenkins

Over the past six years, the Philadelphia Eagles have experienced dramatic change. Chip Kelly. Sam Bradford. Doug Pederson. Carson Wentz. The one constant has been Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles have played 102 games during the past six seasons. Jenkins never missed one. He’s barely missed snaps, playing nearly 99 percent of them since signing in

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.

Boban the 76er (Tobias, too)

It’s a trade that seemingly came out of nowhere. Reports afterwards indicated that for months Philadelphia had been enamored with Tobias Harris. At 26, Harris fits in line with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. His skillset as an efficient, medium-volume shooter should complement Simmons, Embiid and Jimmy Butler perfectly. Here’s a 6-9 wing who doesn’t
