Back in 2010, we learned former Eagles fullback Kevin Turner had been diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. FoxSports.com’s Lisa Horne caught up with Turner at his home in Alabama, where he admits his body’s deterioration has been frustrating, though he remains surprisingly upbeat.

When the Wings host Buffalo today at 4 p.m., their shirts will don Twitter handles in place of the players’ names, supposedly becoming the first professional sports team in the world to adopt this fashion trend.

Super Bowl XLVI is here, and we’re watching.
Feb 3, 2012, 1:14 PM EDT
In case watching a rival go down in flames isn’t quite motivation enough, here are a few reasons you might get a modicum of enjoyment from a Patriots victory over the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI.

Like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover before him, Wayne Simmonds took down the Predators, drowning two goals to lead the Flyers, and it wasn’t just what showed up on the scoreboard that impressed.

Winnipeg’s Chris Thorburn on ending his 60-game goal scoring drought in last night’s 2-1 shootout victory over the Flyers: “You know what? I haven’t had that feeling in a while. I tell you what, there’s not many feelings like that. I actually turned to the corner for my celebration and no one came to me.…

Thoughts on the Eagles new secondary coach, Todd Bowles.

Is an All Star big man on the Sixers’ wish list? Could the target in question currently reside in their own division? CSN’s John Finger reports the 76ers have indeed contacted the rival New York Knicks about one Amare Stoudemire, who the team also was linked to in potential deals of years past.

Ordinarily we don’t put much stock in whatever Dave Spadaro has to say, but it’s hard to argue any writer is closer to the organization than he is. That’s why we found this little nugget about Juan Castillo’s job status interesting, buried halfway into Spud’s recent “News, Notes And Things I Think” post over at PE.com.

“Maybe you will never be convinced Joe Paterno was a good man who made one catastrophic mistake, but do you have time for just one story?” So begins ESPN.com’s Rick Reilly as he helps retell Adam Taliaferro’s tale.

The New York Giants are playing in Super Bowl XLvI, while the Philadelphia Eagles weren’t even invited to the party, spawning the predictable debate about the distance between the two franchises right now. Hate to say it, but the biggest difference between the two teams — Eli Manning.

Evidence that turnovers are the primary difference between losing, and have a strong correlation with defensive performance as well.

It must feel good to be home… and to play the Wild there. The Flyers made short work of the league’s second-worst offense, dispatching Minnesota 5-1 and dropping them to 0-8-2 on the road since December 10. That’s right, but for one minor hiccup, everything was coming up orange and black on Tuesday night.

“But now, with the final four set in stone, once again we see … defense wins in the postseason.” I’m probably not supposed to call out my colleagues at CSN. Then again, I couldn’t find any hard and fast rules that say otherwise, so… sorry, bud! Here’s all you need to know about the Divisional…

With seemingly everybody in Philadelphia firmly opposed to Juan Castillo remaining defensive coordinator, here is one man’s opinion that the pitch forks and torches are preposterous.
Jan 15, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT
Now that speculation over last week’s report suggesting Steve Spagnuolo was set to join the Philadelphia Eagles as their new defensive coordinator has quieted down some, let’s look at why you might consider tapping the breaks on that theory.

Chris Pronger broke his silence to release a brief statement on his state of mind.
Jan 11, 2012, 12:25 AM EDT
How did the Eagles blow five fourth-quarter leads this season? The simple answer many fans and those in the media have chosen to adopt is “Juan Castillo,” but it glosses over the fact that in every case, there were other elements at work that were equally responsible — maybe more so — for the mark that wound up in the loss column.

Ryan Madson is still a free agent, which suggests the Phils made the right call by going with Jonathan Papelbon.
Jan 9, 2012, 2:19 AM EDT
Over the weekend, the team announced it has parted ways with cornerbacks coach Johnnie Lynn, who joined the staff this past offseason. When you think about it, it was a predictable outcome given that the defense often failed to get the most out of its three Pro Bowl corners.

The Eagles may have a lot in common with the Houston Texans, who were 10-3 at one point and won a playoff game on Saturday, and are also remarkably similar to an Eagles team from the past.
Jan 7, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT
Danny Briere was a busy guy on Saturday. Not only did he score all three Flyers goals to earn his fifth career hat trick, but he even mixed it up in a good fight. Thanks to Briere’s toughness and outstanding all-around effort, the Flyers were able to outlast the Ottawa Senators, picking up their two points in the final seconds of overtime.

Penn State University is expected to announce on Saturday its coaching search has ended with the hiring of New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.
