    Feb 11, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT


    Would you rather have Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and highest-rated passer in the NFL Nick Foles under center, or Seattle Seahawks signal-caller and world champion Russell Wilson? There’s been an ongoing debate in Philadelphia as to how good Foles really is, whether mobile quarterbacks are better than pocket passers and, specifically in our comment section, where…

    Feb 4, 2014, 3:37 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

    Arnett Moultrie hasn’t played for the Philadelphia 76ers since last season.

Conditioning undoubtedly had a lot to do with Moultrie not stepping right…

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics

    Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown admitted on Monday that “It’s been an incredible surprise to have our team intact this late in the year.” From the sound of things, he might not want to get used to that feeling.

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT

    Peyton Manning,Cliff Avril

    “The way the game is today, none of these offensive records will last.” Those are the words of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning after he broke the NFL’s single-season record for touchdown passes back in Week 16. The five-time league MVP even quipped Tom Brady would “probably break it again next year.” Funny, but there…

    By and large, football fans across the country are picking the Denver Broncos to defeat the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.

  17. Is expanding the NFL playoffs a good or bad thing?

    Feb 1, 2014, 12:25 PM EDT


    It seems like everything is constantly growing in today’s super-size culture, especially in professional sports where it’s the rule, not the exception and the bubble never seems to burst. Major League Baseball added two teams to the postseason, inventing a dumbfounding one-game playoff in a sport that almost exclusively holds series of three games or…

  18. Jason Kelce, embarrassment to mankind, only eats 65 wings at Wing Bowl

    Jan 31, 2014, 10:32 AM EDT


    This tiny woman ate 363 wings. Matt Stairs was chugging beers like he’s Stone Cold Steve Austin in a Phillies jersey. What did Jason Kelce do? He ate 65 wings in 14 minutes. All that hype, and Kelce didn’t even qualify for the second round. Disgraceful. Doesn’t it seem like the center for the Philadelphia…

  19. Michael Vick expects to start in 2014, doesn’t seem to care where

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT


    In a matter of weeks, Michael Vick will become a free agent. Once upon a time, this would’ve been big news in the NFL, but with two career playoff wins and soon to be 34 years of age, he’ll probably have to be less than discriminating to find a starting job. That doesn’t seem to…

    Jan 29, 2014, 4:19 PM EDT


    Reports indicate free-agent right-hander A.J. Burnett will return to pitch a 16th season in the big leagues, which immediately led to speculation that the two-time World Series champion could be a fit for the Philadelphia Phillies.

  22. Keith Law calls Phillies’ recent draft ‘perhaps the best’ in MLB

    Jan 28, 2014, 12:21 PM EDT

    Phillies draft pick J.P. Crawford and his purple bowtie

    They might as well change the name from Citizens Bank Park to Jurassic Park since it will be home to the prehistoric Philadelphia Phillies in 2014. The roster is old in a way that’s both funny and sad at the same time, and nothing is going to change that right now. Help is on the…

    Jan 27, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT


    How is Jeremy Maclin’s recovery coming along? You be the judge.

    Jan 27, 2014, 6:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles

The quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles connected on seven of 10 pass attempts for 89 yards and a touchdown to Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan…

  25. Marlon Byrd claims Phillies aren’t old, needs a dictionary

    Jan 26, 2014, 11:06 AM EDT


    Say what you want about the Philadelphia Phillies and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., they’re not worried about perceptions. The organization’s relentless pursuit of players approaching their 40s is both funny and sad at the same time, but people affiliated with the team still seem to believe in what they’re doing, or at least they…
