  1. People, Vick Really Is Out with a Concussion

    A couple weeks back, a very good friend of mine came to me and asked, “So when are you gonna break the big story?” About what, I wondered. “You know, about Mike Vick not really being out with a concussion.” I pooh-poohed the idea, and eventually he left it go. Too bad for ESPN it…

  2. Thanks, NHL

    Imagine you work for a company that manufactures and distributes a variety of products – hey, maybe you do! Each product is unique in some way, and therefore assembled at a different factory, perhaps even at locations spread across the continent. You might explain to friends and family that you work for whatever particular brand…

  3. Place Your Bets: The When Will Andy Reid Get Fired Pool

    Nov 29, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/926275.jpg

    The 2012 Eagles have been reduced to the NFL’s version of enhancement talent. They’re down to two healthy starters on offense, and have already begun chopping off limbs on defense. Honestly, what more is there left to say? At this point, we’re just counting down the days until it’s over – in my case, quite…

  4. B.J. Upton, Thought to Be Phillies Target in Free Agency, Signs with Atlanta

    Nov 28, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/936201.jpg

    A big-name centerfielder is officially off the free agent market. Former Tampa Bay Ray B.J. Upton is headed to the NL East, but he won’t be wearing red pinstripes. The 28 year old has reportedly agreed to a five-year contract worth $75 million with the Atlanta Braves. Looks like we’ll have plenty of opportunities to…

  5. Babin Claimed by Jacksonville, So You Should Root for His Production to Improve Over the Next Five Weeks

    Nov 28, 2012, 4:41 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/951667.jpg

    In one of the many interviews Jason Babin gave during his whirlwind media tour immediately following his release, the two-time Pro Bowler said that he wanted to sack quarterbacks and play for winner. The NFL genie certainly did not grant his second wish. The Jacksonville Jaguars, one of the only remaining teams with a worse…

  6. Poll: Is Curt Schilling a Hall of Famer?

    Nov 28, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/951559.jpg

    The 2013 Baseball Writers’ Hall of Fame ballot was released on Wednesday, and among the first-year candidates making their debut, the most prevalent player to do a stretch with the Phillies would be none other than Curt Schilling. Schilling spent parts of 20 seasons in the big leagues, nine of those with Philadelphia, though he’s…

  7. What to Make of Babins Abrupt Departure

    Nov 28, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/943949.jpg

    Just when you think the Eagles’ rapidly-decomposing season couldn’t take any more unexpected turns, the team announces on Tuesday they’ve parted ways with a high-profile veteran with five games remaining. That Jason Babin will not be in Philadelphia in 2013 was not the surprise here though. Actually, that much was probably inevitable. Babin was signed…

  8. Sacked: Eagles RELEASE Jason Babin

    Nov 27, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

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

    In an absolutely stunning move, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced the release of defensive end Jason Babin. Andy Reid released this statement on the development: “We appreciate everything that Jason has given this team over the last couple of years. We wish him all the best as he continues his career. By releasing him, this…

  9. Two Random Thoughts on Andy Reid Continuing to Coach the Eagles

    Nov 27, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/949607.jpg

    Another day, another round of speculation on when Andy Reid will be fired, why Andy Reid should be fired. Patience, my friends. Andy’s time will soon come, but the reality is he is still the man for the job. Seriously, hear me out on this. 1. The Eagles are a freight train. Nothing can stop…

  10. Piling On: DeSean Jacksons Season Over

    Nov 27, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/950583.jpg

    The Eagles’ offense was dealt yet another blow on Monday night. Andy Reid announced at his day-after press conference that DeSean Jackson will hit injured reserve after suffering multiple fractures to his ribs in the 30-22 loss to Carolina. Jackson is the fourth starter on offense to be placed on IR, along with Jason Peters,…

  11. Are You Ready for Some (Really Bad) Football? Eagles-Panthers On Monday Night in Philly

    Nov 26, 2012, 3:26 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/949753.jpg

    Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy have been ruled out for Monday Night Football. The 2-8 Carolina Panthers are three-point favorites against the 3-7 Eagles at home. This is as low as it gets. The action in the stands legitimately could be more intriguing to watch unfold than anything that takes place on the field tonight.…

  12. The Time Team Richards Downed Team Hartnell at Boardwalk Hall In Front of Most Eclectic Spectators Ever

    Nov 25, 2012, 3:14 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/948935.png

    There were almost equal parts Flyers and Rangers fans, mixed with a healthy Devils contingency, then your token smattering of Penguins jerseys. There were Capitals fans, Bruins fans, Maple Leafs fans, Canucks fans. There was even a dude wearing an NHLPA sweater, apparently showing his support of union workers. Hockey fans from all walks descended…

  13. Who Are the Eagles Still Better Than? Searching Searching Ah, the Chiefs!

    Nov 23, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/947737.jpg

    Naturally, the Eagles were a hot topic at Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. The conversation starters ranged from your typical So what’s wrong with the Eagles? and Are Andy Reid and Michael Vick gone at the end of the year? to the almost sympathetic Did you actually have to watch that game against the Redskins on Sunday?…

  14. Kevin Frandsen Has Competition?

    Nov 23, 2012, 1:06 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/899765.jpg

    Folks who are hopeful the Phillies would add a credible third baseman this offseason got half of their wish on Friday. According to Matt Gelb, the team signed 2004 first-round pick Josh Fields to a minor-league contract. Formerly the 18th overall pick by the Chicago White Sox, Fields hit 23 homers in 100 games as…

  15. Jaws Thinks Foles Will Be Good Starter, Calls 2013 Quarterback Class Not Great

    Nov 20, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/886259.jpg

    Former Eagles quarterback turned ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski thinks the organization already has a good starting quarterback on the roster. That’s good news, because Jaws is also hearing this year’s draft class is nothing special. Speaking to reporters during a conference call on Tuesday (via PhiladelphiaEagles.com), Jaworski praised rookie Nick Foles despite somewhat of a…

  16. Good News, Everyone! The Eagles Will Still Play Dallas in Primetime

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:15 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/945719.jpg

    Believe it or not, your 3-7 Philadelphia Eagles will be featured in primetime in three of the next four weeks. Unlike the suckers at ESPN and the NFL Network however, NBC could get out of showing an awful game to a national-television audience. Unfortunately, they opted not to. We’re at that time of the year…

  17. Steven Stamkos, Marty Brodeur Join Team Philly in Atlantic City for Operation Hat Trick

    Nov 19, 2012, 9:58 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/945295.jpg

    Scott Hartnell wanted to hold an exhibition game for charity, and an All-Star game broke out. In addition to the 11 current or former Flyers participating in Operation Hat Trick, a grand total of 12 NHL All Stars will skate to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief. Hartnell will be joined on Team Philly by…

  18. Maryland and Rutgers Expected to Join the Big Ten

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/944961.jpg

    Just two years after adding Nebraska to reach 12 teams, the Big Ten will continue expanding their reach. Maryland has agreed to leave the ACC and become a member of the conference beginning in 2014, and reports are Rutgers will follow suit by exiting the Big East next. Poor Big East. Just when they complete…

  19. Vick to Start At Quarterback Whenever He Is Able

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:38 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/944793.jpg

    If Nick Foles is in fact the future of the Eagles’ franchise, then that future will have to wait. At his day-after press conference, Andy Reid left little doubt that Michael Vick will be the starter whenever he’s able to return from a concussion, which might be as soon as next Monday night against Carolina.…

  20. Juan Pierre to the Marlins

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:25 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/944523.jpg

    One of the few bright spots for the Phillies last season turned out to be Juan Pierre. Now in his mid-30s, Pierre is a limited ball player, but put up good numbers while remaining a consummate professional during what was a trying year in Philadelphia. Things went so well for the 35 year old, there…

  21. Reid: McCoy Injured in Final Minutes of Blowout Because Eagles Were trying to catch up

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:01 AM EDT

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

    As if things couldn’t get any worse this season, All-Pro running back and last remaining beacon of light LeSean McCoy sustained a concussion while the Eagles were running meaningless plays in the final moments of a humiliating 31-6 loss in Washington. It’s early, so there is no word yet on how severe it is, but…

  22. ROCK BOTTOM: Redskins Annihilate Eagles

    Nov 18, 2012, 4:14 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/943949.jpg

    It’s official. The Philadelphia Eagles are not just a bad team. They are one of the most pathetic teams in the National Football League. With a 31-6 loss in Washington on Sunday – their sixth loss in a row – the Eagles fall to 3-7 on the season. They drop to dead last in the…

  23. Nick Foles Makes First NFL Start Against RG3-Led Redskins

    Nov 18, 2012, 11:14 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/943839.jpg

    It’s safe to say the Eagles aren’t going anywhere this year after losing five consecutive games, and their season appeared to be circling the drain weeks ago. You can’t complain that there is no intrigue left for the Birds in 2012 though. Nick Foles is set to make his first NFL start in Washington today,…

  24. McGloin-Robinson Connection Runs Wild in PSU Win, but Mauti Takes Cart Ride

    Nov 17, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/943399.jpg

    Penn State defeated Indiana on the gridiron for the 16th time in 16 tries thanks in large part to outstanding performances by Matt McGloin and Allen Robinson. Unfortunately, their huge afternoon was marred by an injury to the heart and soul of the football team. Senior linebacker Michael Mauti went down with a serious-looking knee…

  25. The Reading Phillies Are Now the Reading Fightin Phils, Mascot Is an Ostrich for Some Reason

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/943361.jpg

    After 46 years, the Reading Phillies are no more. Philadelphia’s Class AA affiliate unveiled the end result of its re-branding process to anxious fans on Saturday. Say hello to the Reading Fightin Phils. The Fightin Phils moniker should ease some of the angst over the name change at least, as it does further the franchise’s…
