  1. Staph infection outbreak could force NFL to move Eagles-Bucs game

    Oct 11, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    rjs

    Crazy news coming out of Tampa Bay on Friday. Three players on the Buccaneers roster have contracted MRSA—a strain of staph infection that’s resistant to some antibiotics—including two new cases just this week. How serious is the outbreak? The NFL may have to move Sunday’s Bucs-Eagles tilt. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Players Association…

  2. Caution: 5 reasons the Tampa Bay Bucs could upset the Eagles

    Oct 10, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-mccoy

    It sure seemed like the Eagles were catching a break when I first saw Tampa Bay on the schedule. The Buccaneers will be searching for their first win of the season on Sunday. They’re mostly in the news these days because of a messy divorce with their former franchise quarterback. From an outsider’s perspective, they…

  3. Flyers players talk about Laviolette’s firing, Berube to try new lines and defensive pairings

    Oct 8, 2013, 5:32 PM EDT

    berube

    In the video above we have Cluade Giroux, Braydon Coburn, and Scott Hartnell discussing the departure of Peter Laviolette, who was ousted from his post as head coach of the Flyers on Monday. Obviously there are a lot of mixed feelings in the dressing room right now, but everybody seems to understand they weren’t getting…

  4. Doug Collins reflects on coaching run in Philly, Bynum trade, still pulling for the 76ers

    Oct 8, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    While the 76ers prepare to embark on a season where 10 wins sounds like a lofty goal, Doug Collins is settling back into his role as an NBA analyst for ESPN. That hardly seems fair. There is absolutely no question Collings poured his heart and soul into coaching the Sixers though—at least until he realized…

  5. DeSean Jackson: ‘I don’t think [Darrelle Revis] can run with me’ [UPDATED w/ video]

    Oct 8, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    desean-giants-td

    If Darrelle Revis is experiencing any ill effects from his ACL tear from last September, he hasn’t allowed it to slow him down on the football field this season. Revis Island may have moved in the offseason, but just like that place from the TV show Lost, it’s still somewhere wide receivers can disappear for…

  6. Eagles defense deserves credit for taking advantage of limited offenses

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    eagles-d-gang-tackle-giants

    You wouldn’t think it just to look at the group on paper, but the Eagles’ defense has played well more often than it has not this season. To reiterate, they’ve had more good games so far than bad. Yes, I’m aware Philadelphia is ranked 31st overall in total defense and 30th in points allowed. Yes,…

  7. Chip Shots: If Foles throws 27 TDs in Tampa Bay, he can win job

    Oct 7, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-bucs

    Nick Foles may get the start in Tampa Bay, but Michael Vick is still the Birds’ quarterback. At least that’s the way Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is looking at the situation the day after Foles replaced an injured Vick and led Philadelphia to a 36-21 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Actually,…

  8. Quarterback controversy? Nick Foles leads Eagles to victory in New York

    Oct 6, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-desean

    When Michael Vick left the game with a hamstring injury and less than two minutes remaining in the first half, the Eagles were ahead 16-7, and Nick Foles quickly led the offense on a scoring drive to tack on three. But midway through the third quarter, the New York Giants had retaken the lead, and…

  9. Eagles look to get back on track versus woeful Giants

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    shady-giants

    Philadelphia is 1-3, coming off the heels of a 52-20 loss in Denver. New York is still winless and has been outscored 69-7 in their last two games. Your classic battle for NFC East supremacy, this is not. Although for what it’s worth—nothing if you ask Chip Kelly—the Eagles have a good chance to move…

  10. Danny Briere on Montreal’s win over Flyers: ‘I got them tonight’

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:45 AM EDT

    briere-mtl

    Not the start to the 2013-14 season the Flyers were hoping for. There weren’t many positives to draw on from the club’s 4-1 loss in Montreal on Saturday night. They didn’t get a lot of great scoring chances, not to mention had trouble generating much in the way of a sustained attack at all or…

  11. Why Jake Voracek wasn’t on the top line with Claude Giroux on Wednesday

    Oct 5, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    giroux-voracek

    If you were wondering why Jakub Voracek did not skate on Claude Giroux’s line in the Fleyrs’ season opener, you weren’t alone. Both CSN’s Tim Panaccio and Sam Carchidi for the Inquirer wrote about Peter Laviolette’s perplexing decision for Saturday, so while for all we know the arrangement was only for one game, the aftershock…

  12. Chip Shots: Kelly chastises McCoy for interruption, asks NFL for trophy

    Oct 3, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    chip-wave

    The Eagles may be off to a 1-3 start under Chip Kelly, but if the pressure of the NFL is starting to get to the head coach, you wouldn’t know it from watching him. Chip was his typical snarky self at Thursday’s press conference. When somebody mentioned Philadelphia could move into first place in the…

  13. Lecavalier’s Flyers debut spoiled by Bernier, Maple Leafs

    Oct 3, 2013, 12:30 AM EDT

    lecav-debut

    It didn’t take long for new Flyer Vincent Lecavalier to make his mark in Philadelphia. As the final seconds were ticking down on the opening period of Wednesday night’s season premiere at the Wells Fargo Center, Lecavalier collected his first point in Orange & Black off of a sweet dish to Brayden Schenn to put…

  14. Are 2013-14 Flyers pulling in too many different directions?

    Oct 2, 2013, 4:09 PM EDT

    giroux-lecav-streit

    A new season is dawning for the Flyers, and with any new season comes hope. The road to the Stanley Cup Playoffs is a long one, and there surely will be bumps along the way, but if the Orange & Black can return to the postseason, anything can happen in the NHL. Are the Flyers…

  15. Is the worst already over for the Philadelphia Eagles?

    Oct 1, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    avant

    In case you’re still searching for silver linings from the Eagles’ 52-20 drubbing in Denver two days ago—their third consecutive loss, and looking increasingly less competitive with each passing week—well the good news is there actually are some reasons to remain upbeat. Go ahead and scoff at the mere implication the sky isn’t falling. If…

  16. Peter Laviolette the odds-on favorite to be first NHL coach fired this season

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    lavvy

    If you asked Flyers chairman Ed Snider if head coach Peter Laviolette is on the hot seat, he would tell you unequivocally no. In fact, he did just that back in September, one day after the club opened training camp. “As far as Peter [Laviolette] is concerned, last year was an anomaly. He’s been a…

  17. Flyers finalize roster, add Hal Gill—puck drops on Wednesday

    Oct 1, 2013, 1:08 PM EDT

    hall-gill-flyers

    The Flyers had some hoops to jump through, but they managed to slip below the NHL salary cap just in time for Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline. With that hurdle cleared, the front office went back to work on adding the final pieces of the puzzle that is the club’s 23-man roster. They wasted no time…

  18. Amaro: Phillies front office will incorporate analytics into personnel evaluations

    Sep 30, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) rubenamarojr.png for post 485464

    Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. didn’t need to tell anybody that he didn’t have a very good year. His team finished with the seventh-worst record in Major League Baseball at 73-89, 23 games out of first place in the same NL East the club once presided over for five consecutive seasons. Amaro accepted his…

  19. NFL.com analyst names Chip Kelly a top candidate for USC job

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    chip-kelly-hat

    One of the true destination jobs in all of college football opened up over the weekend when the University of Southern California fired head coach Lane Kiffin. It’s easy to land top recruits, you’re living on the beach—where do I send a resume? At least one analyst believes Chip Kelly might be asking the same…

  20. ANNIHILATED: Broncos humiliate Eagles 52-20 in Denver

    Sep 29, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    broncos-humiliate-eagles

    Well, we told you there was a chance to win. Actually, I said it, and I stand by it. I also said what actually wound up happening—an embarrassing 52-20 loss—would not surprise anyone either. The Denver Broncos are an amazing football team, which should be fairly obvious to everybody by now. The next defense that…

    DeSean Jackson vs. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie John Gonzalez had a nice story some days back about these two flashy stars renewing their rivalry. Not only were they going at each other in practice every day over the previous two seasons, they actually have some history on the field. DeSean Jackson and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie crossed paths twice…

  22. Casper Wells’ dad was thoroughly unimpressed by son’s performance

    Sep 28, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Casper Wells

    Hey, do you remember that time about a month ago when Casper Wells went 0 for 7 at the plate and surrendered five runs on the mound in the longest game in Phillies history? Of course you do – it’s history! Yes, Casper Wells is a person who played for the Phillies this season, which…

  23. Stunning photos and video of agonizing Brayden Schenn fight

    Sep 28, 2013, 10:34 AM EDT

    schenn-loss-3

    The Flyers wrapped up their preseason on Friday night with a slobberknocker in our nation’s capital. The Washington Capitals won the game 6-3, but the result was more of an afterthought than usual for a game of ice hockey in September. Zac Rinaldo was ejected midway through the third first period for elbowing Caps center…

  24. 3 reasons the Eagles could upset the Denver Broncos on Sunday

    Sep 27, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    shady-29

    Somewhat lost amid all of the hoopla over the buzzsaw known as Peyton Manning is the fact that the Eagles are an NFL team with a chance to win a football game this Sunday. Sure, you hear a few people touting this idea, but it sure seems like most are chalking this up as a…

  25. What time is it in Denver? Check your Rolex

    Sep 26, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly and Bill Belichick

    (What, you don’t have a Rolex? That’s weird. Bloggers always own a Rolex or two…) Chip Kelly has no shortage of unique methods, from music at practice and personalized smoothies to his entire approach to offense. He even has a way of acclimating his players to the time difference on a west-coast trip, like the…
