Eagles 2-0, real challenge begins against Steelers

Before the season began, it was almost expected that the Eagles would win their first two games. Cleveland and Chicago aren’t very good. But before the season, Sam Bradford was supposed to be the one that led Philadelphia to a 2-0 start. Carson Wentz might not have put up the numbers he did against Cleveland […]

Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz won the city after one touchdown drive. It’s inappropriate to anoint Wentz as this chosen one after one game. Wentz hasn’t faced different defensive looks. He’s had one opportunity to showcase his abilities, and he passed. But no two opponents operate the same way. Chicago might not seem like this major defensive threat, […]

Let the Wentz Era begin

It wasn’t supposed to happen this quickly. Maybe if Sam Bradford suffered an injury midway through the season. Maybe if the Eagles didn’t have a chance to make the postseason come November. Maybe then Carson Wentz would start, but it doesn’t matter anymore. Wentz will make his first career start in his first career game. […]

Philly’s Offensive Outlook

Sam Bradford was accurate last Thursday, but he did so without throwing the ball down field. He’ll micromanage the game, especially if Philadelphia does not have the vertical threats necessary for a high-power offense. It’s the smart approach to this season, because the Eagles desperately need to win as many games as possible since they […]

Can Sam Bradford breakthrough?

Sam Bradford plays like an average quarterback. Ask anyone to describe Bradford. Mediocre probably best describes Bradford, while overpaid and overrated chronicle him, too. Bradford completed the most passes for a rookie in NFL history in 2010. He won Offensive Rookie of the Year later that season. The former Heisman trophy winner looked like one […]

Dario Saric Arrives

In some ways, Saric defines the Sam Hinkie Era. As much of a risk as the Joel Embiid selection was, Saric was a similar risk. Two years ago Dario Saric promised to be in Philadelphia, and after heavy speculation that he would change his mind for financial reasons, Saric fulfilled his initial promise arriving Thursday afternoon. […]

Ben Simmons

Players like Ben Simmons aren’t commonplace. A towering, rugged forward that handles the ball and passes to teammates in transition do not come along often. Watching Simmons this summer league provided the first glimpse of how his skill set translates to a bigger playing surface, and with better talent. This pass to Timothe Luwawu in […]

76ers free agency

Bryan Colangelo promised signings, and he delivered. Jerryd Bayless, Sergio Rodriguez and Gerald Henderson reportedly signed with the Philadelphia 76ers during the opening days of free agency. Bayless, who last season for the Milwaukee Bucks, averaged 10.4 points and 3.1 assists, while shooting 43.7 percent on 4.4 three-point attempts per game, signed a three-year, $27 […]

Thoughts about Durant joining Golden State

I’m a fan of competition. I’d like to see OKC-Golden State Part II next conference finals. So, for selfish reasons, I hate Kevin Durant joining the Warriors. When LeBron James left Cleveland to team up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, I was pissed. I remember going to Miami’s first game in Philadelphia, and booing […]
