    As the NHL prepares its last-ditch effort to save this season, some of you might be wondering, “Who cares?” Well, we do, and it’s because of moments like Claude Giroux’s overtime goal in Game 3 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals. Giroux’s ecstasy was captured in this painting by Ari Lankin, a West Chester, PA…

  2. NHLs CBA Proposal Has January 11 Drop-dead Date

    Dec 29, 2012, 1:38 PM EDT

    Late Thursday night, the NHL took perhaps its biggest step to date in attempting to end the lockout, making several concessions in the latest proposal to the players’ association. It’s starting to look like this is close to the best deal the players are going get. But for the first time, the league attached a…

  3. Vick Insists Offensive Line Partly to Blame for Decline, but Not in the Way You Might Think

    Dec 28, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT

    As Michael Vick prepares for what is quite possibly his final game in an Eagles uniform, this week has been a sort of time of reflection. How did the quarterback’s play decline so rapidly after being named Comeback Player of the Year in 2010? We all know an offensive line that was decimated by injuries…

  4. Are Nick Foles, Chip Kelly, and the NFL a Match?

    Dec 27, 2012, 5:38 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/970447.jpg

    They have yet to conduct so much as one formal interview, or even fire Andy Reid for that matter, but it sure sounds like the Eagles have a great deal of interest in Chip Kelly. The rumor reached fever pitch over the past few days since CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported the Birds are…

  5. In the Tradition of Festivus, Jason Babin Airs His Grievances with the Eagles

    Dec 26, 2012, 3:28 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/950729.jpg

    The Eagles released Jason Babin four weeks ago, which might seem like an eternity, but apparently wasn’t long enough for the wide-9 specialist to get over it. As his Jacksonville Jaguars prepare for their Week 17 finale in Tennessee – one of many stops in Babin’s nine-year NFL career – he simply couldn’t refrain from…

  6. Foles Season Is Over, Vick Likely to Start Finale

    Dec 24, 2012, 12:45 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/969191.jpg

    So that injury to Nick Foles’ throwing hand on Sunday, the one that he played through for at least the entire second half? Fairly serious after all. An X-ray on Monday morning revealed a hairline fracture, which will keep him out of the Week 17 finale in New York. The news on Foles seems to…

  7. No Foles Magic This Time: Eagles Lose in Sadder-Than-Usual Fashion

    Dec 23, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/968831.jpg

    For the second time in three weeks, Nick Foles had a chance to demonstrate a flare for the dramatic. Only on this occasion, he came up short – then quite literally threw the game away. Foles underthrew a wide-open Jeremy Maclin in the end zone with 23 seconds left, a wobbly duck that sent its…

  8. Eagles Attempt to Spoil Redskins Playoff Run in Reids Last Home Game (Most Likely)

    Dec 23, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/968655.jpg

    So, this is it, eh? After months of waiting – years in some cases – we’ve reached the end of the line. Today Andy Reid will almost certainly coach his final game from the home sidelines at Lincoln Financial Field. Hold me. There’s been some discussion this week about the type of reaction Reid might…

  9. NHLs Season Officially Circling the Drain

    Dec 21, 2012, 3:58 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/904935.jpg

    You might say they’re on the home stretch, except that implies the end is near. In the case of the NHL lockout, there is most definitely a finish line, but that doesn’t mean either side will cross it in time to save this season. The league announced on Thursday its decision to cancel games through…

  10. Is Nate Allen the Latest to Join Recent Eagles Draft Busts?

    Dec 20, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/967049.jpg

    He’ll always be remembered in Philadelphia as the “McNabb pick,” the player the Eagles selected with the second-round draft choice sent from Washington in exchange for Donovan in 2010. Otherwise, Nate Allen might be on the verge of becoming completely forgettable. Allen revealed on Wednesday that he will be on the bench when the Redskins…

  11. Is Atlantas Dirk Koetter the Head Coach for Nick Foles?

    Dec 20, 2012, 2:40 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/966727.jpg

    Within a matter of weeks, Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman will be interviewing a number of qualified candidates for the Eagles’ head coaching job. Among the high-profile names already rumored to be in line for the position are Super Bowl XXXVII champion Jon Gruden, and the innovative Chip Kelly at the University of Oregon. More…

    Dec 19, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/966277.jpg

    As this awful chapter in Philly sports known as 2012 finally winds down, we are all about looking ahead these days. As we prepare to embark on a new year, will our teams rebound and give us something to cheer for in the months ahead? We examine the tough questions that will still loom large…

  13. Andy Reid Explains Why LeSean McCoy Will Play on Sunday

    Dec 19, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/944481.jpg

    When LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion on a running play in the final two minutes of a 31-6 loss in Washington, Andy Reid told reporters his star back was still in the game because the Eagles were, “Trying to catch up and win the game.” One month after the fact, the head coach had to…

  14. Charlie Manuel Sitting Front Row for Monday Night RAW

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/965505.jpg

    The WWE came to town last night, holding their prestigious Slammy Awards show at the Wells Fargo Center. John Cena won Superstar of the Year, while the legendary Ric Flair paid the squared circle a visit, and talked up the city of Philadelphia quite a bit we’ll add. As you can see from the photograph…

    We’ve all seen those commercials for albums filled with nothing but Christmas carols. Now here’s one just for sports fans — and it’s hilarious.

  16. Will Vick or McCoy Be in Uniform on Sunday?

    Dec 18, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/965425.jpg

    Both Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy passed the final stage in concussion testing, and are cleared for action this week versus Washington. Whether either one of them are activated on Sunday – or for any of the brief remnants of this season for that matter – remains to be seen. McCoy, on the other hand,…

  17. Andy Reid Says Sons Decisions Didn’t Affect the Eagles Football Team

    Dec 17, 2012, 2:51 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/926907.jpg

    With the news that Andy Reid’s son Garrett was in possession of steroids at the time of his death, it’s tempting to leap to conclusions. In a statement through the Philadelphia Eagles, the head coach attempted to squash such an association. “As you all know, my son Garrett battled addiction for many years. While there…

  18. Phillies Sign a Starter and a Setup Man

    Dec 15, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/963865.jpg

    While the corner outfielders still remain something of a mystery, the Phillies went about filling some of their last remaining needs for 2013 with a pair of free-agent additions to their pitching staff. Long-time Washington National John Lannan replaces Vance Worley as a low-price hand at the back end of the rotation, while Mike Adams…

  19. What Got into the Defensive Line?

    Dec 14, 2012, 1:32 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/963335.jpg

    There wasn’t much of substance to take away from Thursday night’s pitiful loss to the Bengals, besides the fact that the Eagles are an incredibly undisciplined team. You couldn’t pick a single player out of a lineup and charge him with the crime of setting off the bomb that leveled the crowd at Lincoln Financial…

  20. Reid Wants to Coach Next Year

    Dec 14, 2012, 3:21 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/926445.jpg

    Don’t worry, gang. That’s Andy Reid saying he wants to coach next year… somewhere. Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports managed to track down the Eagles’ head coach of 14 seasons somewhere in the outgoing bin on Jeffrey Lurie’s antique desk this week. Asked point blank whether he might take a year off if – excuse…

  21. Eagles a Comedy of Errors in Thursday Night Blowout

    Dec 14, 2012, 12:36 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/962937.jpg

    This was the definition of giving a game away. Every single point the Cincinnati Bengals scored in a 34-13 win against the Eagles was the direct result of a hilariously unacceptable mistake – and the act went on just one minute into the game • Next series: Following a three-and-out, there is some confusion getting…

  22. Eagles-Bengals: Coming Down with Foles Fever on a Thursday Night

    Dec 13, 2012, 8:08 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/962749.jpg

    I’ve taken my lumps this week over a few of the descriptions of Nick Foles’ encouraging performance in Tampa Bay, but the truth is it’s a hard not to feel a little enthusiastic right now. This football season had been slogging along for over two months since anything even remotely thrilling transpired on the gridiron,…

  23. Tougher Task Awaits Foles Tonight

    Dec 13, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/962495.jpg

    Tampa Bay entered their Week 14 contest against the Eagles with 18 sacks, the third-lowest total in the NFL. By the time 60 minutes had passed, they had hauled Nick Foles to the turf six times, all on four-man rushes. That Philly’s offensive line has sieve-like properties is no new discovery, but if the Bucs…

  24. Ranking the Rookie Quarterbacks

    Dec 12, 2012, 3:51 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/961849.jpg

    It’s beginning to look like the 2012 draft class is shaping up to be a banner year for quarterbacks. Obviously it’s too early to tell for sure about a few of these guys (hint: Nick Foles), but there are currently seven rookies starting at the most visible position in football. Now we want to know…

  25. Why Tampas Last-Place Pass Defense Should Not Detract from Foles Breakout Performance

    Dec 12, 2012, 3:54 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/961543.jpg

    Believe me when I tell you the Tampa Bay Buccaneers claiming ownership of the NFL’s 32nd-ranked passing defense was not lost on us here. Now having finally acknowledged that piece of information, it has done little to dissuade from my sentiment that Nick Foles made a breakthrough on Sunday. What’s in a number anyway? The…
