  1. We wish Miguel Cabrera really was ‘property of Philadelphia’

    Nov 2, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    cabrera-voracek

    No offense to Cody Asche or Maikel Franco, but Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera would look awfully good in red pinstripes. Likewise, you wouldn’t hear many arguments if the Phillies somehow unloaded Ryan Howard’s contract and stuck the 2012 American League Triple Crown Winner over at first base. No, Cabrera is not a free…

    NHL: Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers

    The Washington Capitals embarrassed the Flyers on their home ice on Friday night, a 7-0 shutout at the Wells Fargo Center. That was without Alexander Ovechkin by the way, the reigning NHL MVP a scratch due to an upper-body injury. With the loss, the Flyers dropped to 3-9-0 on the season, their six points good…

  3. Catching up on some big Eagles storylines heading into Week 9: Foles starting, Sopoaga traded and winning the division

    Oct 31, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    eagles-logo

    The Eagles are coming off of back-to-back losses to division rivals at the Linc by a combined score of 32-10. Chip Kelly’s offense has not produced a touchdown since October 13 against the winless Tampa Bay Bucs. We’re at the midway point in the season, and the buzz around Philadelphia has clearly shifted as many…

  4. Peter King: Eagles ‘the disappointment of the season’

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:13 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Expectations were low for the Eagles heading into the season, although I’m not sure anybody thought a Chip Kelly offense would go one game without scoring a touchdown, let alone two in a row. Still, Philadelphia wasn’t exactly thinking Super Bowl this year, and most didn’t have them this team in the playoffs, so a…

  5. Reminder for Chip Kelly: the Broncos won games with Tim Tebow at QB

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    barkley

    Practically every Eagles fan understands this team in all likelihood does not have its franchise quarterback. For all the words that were spent on Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley and which one should or should not start, there are legitimate doubts that any one of them could ever be the man in Philadelphia. Chip…

  6. Offensive: Eagles offense held without a touchdown for second straight week

    Oct 27, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    vick-herremans

    As bad as things got in Andy Reid’s final season in Philadelphia, never did the Eagles go two full games without scoring a touchdown on offense. Even without 80 percent of the starters along the offensive line, even with LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson missing in the end, whether it was Michael Vick or Nick…

  7. Video: Vinny Lecavalier gets first Flyers hat trick in win over Isles

    Oct 27, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Vincent Lecavalier

    The Flyers’ offense finally scored more than two goals in a game for the first time all season on Saturday. In fact, Vincent Lecavalier did it by himself. Yes, it still counts. Lecavalier paced Philly’s offense with three goals in the 5-2 win over the New York Islanders, giving Orange & Black its second win…

  8. Phil Simms names Eagles offense one of NFL’s five worst units

    Oct 25, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Phil Simms

    In terms of quality, there isn’t much separation between the offenses for the Eagles and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger—that’s the NFL according to Phil Simms. The former New York Giants quarterback and CBS analyst was listing the top and bottom five units in the league on Showtime’s Inside the NFL this…

  9. Flyers beat Rangers, Wayne Simmonds beats on Brandon Mashinter (video)

    Oct 25, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Wayne Simmonds, Brandon Mashinter

    No matter how bad the Flyers’ season is going, you’ll always take a scrappy win over the New York Rangers—even and especially when the Rangers aren’t very good either. Orange & Black’s 2-1 victory over the Rags at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday was in many ways a throwback. The rivals brawled—a lot—and even…

  10. Will Michael Vick be effective if he can’t run?

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    vick-run-gmen

    The good news for the Eagles is Michael Vick is expected to play on Sunday—at least that’s the consensus among reporters. Chip Kelly sounds far less convinced, although who knows how much of that is gamesmanship on the head coach’s part. The bad news is Vick’s hamstring still may not be 100 percent by Sunday…

  11. Vinny Lecavalier joins Claude Giroux on Flyers’ top line

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    giroux-lecav-streit

    This is certainly one way to help the captain and franchise player snap his goal-less streak. Reports from Tuesday’s morning practice have four-time All Star Vincent Lecavalier skating with Claude Giroux on the top line, a look that should debut when the Orange & Black return to action against the New York Rangers on Thursday.…

  12. Dom Brown changes his tune: ‘I know the Philly fans love me’

    Oct 22, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    dom-cowboys

    Domonic Brown caught some flak this week after Tweeting a photo of himself wearing a Cowboys jersey at the Linc on Sunday. He seemingly made matters worse by replying to fans with pouty statements such as, “Philly doesn’t love me,” and intimating he wouldn’t mind being traded. So Dom went on 97.5 The Fanatic on…

  13. Fan poll in favor of firing Paul Holmgren ‘doesn’t mean anything’ to Flyers

    Oct 21, 2013, 4:08 PM EDT

    Paul Holmgren

    Do you think Paul Holmgren should be relieved of his duties as general manager of the Flyers? Do ya? Well, guess what—the Flyers don’t care. According to Peter Luukko, president of Comcast-Spectacor, that is the organization’s official opinion of a Philly.com poll where nearly 93 percent of the 4,400 respondents voted yes for Holmgren’s dismissal.…

  14. Dom Brown wears Cowboys jersey to the Linc, pouts over backlash

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    dom-cowboys

    The fact that Domonic Brown is a Cowboys fan isn’t a big deal. Sure, Phillies fans may find it distasteful, but most rational people understand professional athletes come from all over the place and have their own rooting interests. Keep showing up for work every day, don’t rub it in, and nobody would even notice…

  15. Injuries muddy Eagles quarterback situation for Week 8

    Oct 21, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Vick and Foles

    Philadelphia’s quarterback controversy may have been laid to rest, but as of Monday it still isn’t clear who will start against the Giants in Week 8. If healthy, it will be Michael Vick—but that’s a big if. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly refused to name a starter during his day-after press conference on the grounds…

  16. Busted: Nick Foles plays worst game as a pro on big stage versus Dallas

    Oct 20, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-dallas

    Chip Kelly’s analysis of Nick Foles’ performance in a 17-3 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys: “He was off.” You can say that again. And again. And again. Amid calls from fans and writers (such as myself) for Foles to take over the reins as the Eagles’ starting quarterback from Michael Vick, the second-year quarterback…

  17. Report: Ban on home plate collisions ‘likely’

    Oct 19, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT

    utley-smash2

    Opposing catchers such as Dioner Navarro for the Chicago Cubs know what they’re in for when they see Chase Utley rounding third base. If the ball beats Utley to the plate, they better brace themselves for impact. But not for long. One of the most exciting plays in baseball sounds like it’s on the verge…

  18. Jerry Jones: Tony Romo ‘the best in the business in the fourth quarter’

    Oct 19, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Image (1) romodown.gif for post 485118

    There’s been some discussion in Philadelphia this week about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo not getting enough credit for being one of the premier passers in the NFL. And actually, I agree with that premise. Romo has been putting up some gaudy numbers the last bunch of seasons. The reason he tends to go overlooked…

  19. Giroux: Flyers will ‘bring the fans back on our side’ against Penguins

    Oct 17, 2013, 4:54 PM EDT

    giroux

    With just two points in the standings, the Flyers are the worst team in the NHL seven games into the 2013-14 season. You can’t blame fans for being dismissive or downright pissed off with the direction of the franchise at the moment. Meanwhile, Claude Giroux is struggling to meet what are perhaps some unrealistic expectations…

  20. Video: Vick and Foles deliver joint press conference, won’t let job ruin the friendship

    Oct 17, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    foles-vick-presser

    The big news to come out of Michael Vick and Nick Foles’ historic joint press conference on Thursday was… wait—historic joint press conference? Yes, love was in the air as the two quarterbacks took the stage together to speak to the press—an NFL first according to Vick—and I’m sure there wasn’t a dry eye in…

  21. Could LeBron James be playing for the 76ers next season?

    Oct 17, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    lebron

    Of course not. Don’t be ridiculous. Technically, it is possible though—and not just in an alternate reality. LeBron James could use the early termination clause in his contract with the Miami Heat to become a free agent in 2014, at which point 30 NBA general managers would sprint to the nearest phone and call his…

  22. Video: Scott Hartnell goes from This Is 40 to parody web videos

    Oct 15, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Image (1) hartnelldownielupolrichardshockey.jpg for post 487181

    How the mighty have fallen. Scott Hartnell is still searching for his scoring touch on the ice—not to mention a little luck avoiding injuries. Hartsy has zero points five games into this season, and now he’s out for 2-4 weeks with an upper body injury. Just how bad have things gotten for Hartnell? Even his…

  23. Paul Holmgren admits Chris Pronger will never play again

    Oct 15, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    pronger

    By now, pretty much everybody was already resigned to the fact that Chris Pronger was never going to appear in an NHL game again. That much isn’t news. The Flyers finally acknowledging the elephant in the room on the other hand… In a story filed by Ken Campbell to The Hockey News, Flyers general manager…

  24. DeMarcus Ware, DeMarco Murray likely out for Dallas vs. Eagles

    Oct 14, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    d-ware

    The Eagles are riding a wave of momentum into their battle for NFC East supremacy against Dallas in Week 7. Now they might be catching a couple of breaks, too. The Cowboys did not escape their 31-16 win over Washington on Sunday night unscathed. Injuries reared their ugly head for a pair of key starters…

  25. 5 statistics that should (but won’t) end Eagles quarterback debate

    Oct 14, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    vick-foles

    The trendy stat of the day for Michael Vick supporters, Nick Foles detractors, and fence-sitters everywhere: opponents’ record. The opponents in games Vick has started and “finished” (technically he was pulled from the Denver game, but the result was not in question) are 15-7. The record of the two teams Foles has beaten is 0-11.…
