  1. Darren Daulton Looks Pretty Good for a Guy Who Had Brain Surgery

    Aug 3, 2013, 12:54 PM EDT

    Darren Daulton

    Even though they got spanked again 6-4 by the Atlanta Braves on Friday night, it must have been a cool game to attend. The Phillies held their annual alumni night and welcomed Curt Schilling into the Wall of Fame, but the man who stole the show was Darren Daulton. It was Daulton’s first major public…

  2. Alec Halaby and the Rise of Analytics in the Eagles’ Front Office

    Aug 1, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    eagles-logo

    As analytics become increasingly mainstream in professional sports, it should come as no surprise the Eagles have embraced the movement. Everything about the franchise these days speaks to an open-minded approach toward the game, from something as simple as strength and conditioning programs to the complexities of offensive and defensive schemes. The shift toward analytics…

  3. Bird Droppings: Controversies and Non-Controversies at Eagles Training Camp

    Aug 1, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    camp

    Perhaps the most overblown story of the offseason so far is about the NFL’s V.P. of officiating coming down on up-tempo offenses like what the Eagles plan to run under Chip Kelly this season. Let’s hear what he has to say: “We have to make sure teams understand that they don’t control the tempo, our…

  4. Teammates React to Riley Cooper’s Racial Slur, Apology

    Aug 1, 2013, 12:21 AM EDT

    cooper

    Video of Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper using a racial slur went viral late Wednesday afternoon. It’s sensational enough without commentary. Obviously the 25-year-old’s words were terribly insensitive to say the least, and he’s probably lucky to get off with just a fine – however expensive it may be – much less keep his job.…

  5. 3B Cody Asche Promoted to Phillies: What’s Next for Michael Young?

    Jul 30, 2013, 3:20 PM EDT

    asche

    So it begins. With the Phillies mired in an ugly eight-game losing streak, and any designs on making the playoffs this season dashed along with it, the organization has promoted third-base prospect Cody Asche to the big club. It was only the first in what is likely to be a series of moves made in…

  6. Observations and Practice Notes from Week One at Eagles Training Camp

    Jul 30, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    barkley-ertz

    When Chip Kelly says the depth chart is written in sand, that every player on the Eagles’ roster must compete for their spot on a daily basis, he’s not kidding. There are few positions where it’s obvious who will be the starter come September 9 in Washington based on practice reps. LeSean McCoy is the…

  7. Donovan McNabb Pick Could Have Been Edgerrin James

    Jul 30, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT

    edgerrin

    Imagine if Donovan McNabb had been chosen first overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 1999 NFL Draft instead Tim Couch. Say what you want about Five, but in hindsight that’s definitely what should have happened. Well, where would that have left the Eagles? Probably not where you would expect. Team owner Jeffrey Lurie shared…

  8. Eagles Practice at the Linc Not a Smash Hit, but Still a Success

    Jul 29, 2013, 7:30 AM EDT

    linc

    For being Chip Kelly’s first full-contact practice, there wasn’t much hitting going on at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday. In fact, there wasn’t any tackling at all. Other than the players wearing pads for the first time this summer, and the bells and whistles that only a stadium experience can offer, this practice wasn’t very…

  9. Eagles Need Not Look Outside the Organization to Replace Jeremy Maclin

    Jul 28, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

    Benn.Cooper

    Given the terrible luck that’s befallen Jeremy Maclin, it’s not surprising many fans and some in the media immediately looked to the pool of free agents or racked their brains over potential trades to unearth a solution for the sudden void that was created in the Eagles’ offense. The simple fact of the matter is…

  10. Jeremy Maclin Tears ACL, Likely Out for the Season

    Jul 27, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    maclin-camp

    What a terrible break for the Eagles and Jeremy Maclin. The fifth-year wide receiver had just slipped past the secondary and hauled in a picture-perfect deep pass at practice on Saturday, then the next thing you know he was laying on the grass in a heap. The news, predictably, was not good. Maclin reportedly has…

  11. Phillies Give Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez 6 Years, $48 Million… Wait, Who?

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:00 PM EDT

    Bless their hearts. The Phillies may be mired in a season-worst six-game losing streak after falling 2-1 to the Tigers in Detroit on Friday night, but Ruben Amaro Jr. is still making moves. In this case though, we’re not talking about some chintzy deadline deal that won’t get this club over the top, but instead…

  12. Jason Peters Guarantees Eagles Win More Than Four Games This Season

    Jul 27, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

    peters

    In 2011 it was Dream Team. In 2012, Dynasty. This year the Eagles’ rallying cry is… more than four wins? Hooray? Okay, maybe not, but Jason Peters set the bar a lot lower than some of his predecessors, or even teammate Isaac Sopoaga, who claimed the Birds were going to “shock the world” after signing…

  13. Tight Ends Coach Ted Williams: Eagles’ Offense Will Look Like Oregon

    Jul 25, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    chip-ducks

    The full 90-man roster has reported to training camp in Philadelphia, which means preparation for the 2013 season is about to begin in earnest for the Eagles. Before veterans started rolling into the NovaCare Complex on Thursday though, assistant coaches were made available to speak to the media in the morning, and there will no…

  14. What Should the Phillies Do with Chase Utley?

    Jul 25, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    utley throw

    In the midst of a four-game losing streak with less than a week to go until the trade deadline, it would seem the Phillies are sliding comfortably into “seller” territory. However, Ruben Amaro Jr. has exhibited reluctance when it comes to the notion of moving some of the club’s biggest pieces. Cliff Lee’s name had…

  15. Donovan McNabb Says Jim Thome Had a Rough Time Dealing with Philly Fans

    Jul 24, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    thome

    In an interview with Paul Domowitch that’s set to run in full inside Thursday’s edition of the Daily News, Donovan McNabb touches on a number of topics related to his Eagles career – his opinion of Philly fans, whether or not he’ll be booed at his retirement ceremony at the Linc this September, and some…

  16. Pulling Back the Curtain on Eagles Sports Science Coordinator Shaun Huls

    Jul 24, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Shaun Huls

    When Chip Kelly introduced his coaching staff back in February, we saw the newly created position of sports science coordinator and wondered what exactly Shaun Huls does. Is that a glorified strength and conditioning coach? Is he the one responsible for the smoothies? Sadly, Chip offered little in the way of insight, and Huls’ role…

  17. Mike Vick: Starter or Not, Eagles and Chip Kelly Are Best Opportunity

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    Michael Vick’s motives are pure. If a 33-year-old quarterback entering his 11th NFL season doesn’t realize the days of shoe deals and video game covers are either over or at least coming to an end, then he’s probably the recipient of some bad advice (DeSean Jackson apparently thinks that’s unlikely for what it’s worth –…

  18. Ruben Amaro Gets Indignant Over… Prospect Rankings?

    Jul 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    indignant-amaro

    Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is under a great deal of pressure these days, with the trade deadline looming and an aging squad that seems neither capable of winning consistently nor freefalling from the playoff race altogether. In addition to his stressful work environment, Amaro is also constantly under fire from fans and in…

  19. Quotable: Phil Mickelson Used Merion as Motivation to Win British Open

    Jul 22, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    mickelson-british-open-win

    Phil Mickelson came up a little short in his bid to win the 2013 U.S. Open in June, so instead he went out and won a different major tournament for the first time ever. With a historic final round on Sunday, Lefty was victorious at the British Open to secure his fifth major championship. Afterwards…

  20. Matt Harvey Owns the Phillies

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    matt-harvey

    How did the Phillies lose two of three in a series to the Mets, you ask? It’s almost not even fair when Matt Harvey gets to pitch one of those games. Harvey has started 30 games in the Major Leagues since his call-up last July, five of those against the Phils already – more than…

  21. Roy Halladay Threw From the Mound on Sunday

    Jul 22, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    halladay-mound

    If there were any encouraging developments to take from the Phillies’ weekend series in New York – other than not losing ground on first place in the NL East despite dropping two of three to the Mets – it was a bullpen session. Specifically it was Roy Halladay’s bullpen session, the first of its kind…

  22. Eagles Get Lane Johnson Under Contract, Now Let’s Go Camping

    Jul 21, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Lane Johnson NFL Draft

    The Birds got their first-round pick to ink his new deal, and with time to spare. After much hand-wringing over “offset language,” Lane Johnson agreed to a four-year contract worth close to $20 million late Saturday night. Johnson was the club’s last rookie left to sign. He will report to training camp on Monday, along…

  23. Dallas Cowboys Intend to Sign Demetress Bell – Celebrate Good Times C’mon!

    Jul 19, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    demetress-bell

    Cowboys fans better pray neither of the team’s offensive tackles gets injured this season. It’s not like they have a Jason Peters or some other All-Pro type down there. No, the problem is Demetress Bell could be on their bench. An ESPN Dallas report says the club intends to sign Bell after he passes a…

  24. NHL Releases 2013-14 Schedule, Flyers to Play in “Metropolitan Division”

    Jul 19, 2013, 1:32 PM EDT

    flyers

    The NHL decided to keep the name Atlantic Division in their realignment. Unfortunately, the Flyers and their main rivals are no longer a part of it. When the puck drops in Philadelphia on October 2, the Orange & Black will be competing for the Metropolitan Division championship. That’s the name of the new grouping that…

  25. Five Tough Questions for Eagles Training Camp: Safety

    Jul 18, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    nate-allen

    We pick up our training camp preview at safety, where it appears the Eagles have an even more wide-open competition than at quarterback. It’s anybody’s guess who will be starting come Week 1.
