  1. Even your phone thinks Nick Foles is the best QB in the NFL

    Dec 4, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT

    foles9

    Computers can’t lie. They’re all 1′s and 0′s and all that. Nick Foles is all TDs and zero interceptions. But give it a shot for yourself. Ask your phone who it thinks the best quarterback in the NFL is. No wonder Chip Kelly wants him to be quarterback of the Eagles for the next 1,000…

  2. Sometimes you get kicked in the face by an old man

    Dec 4, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    facekick

    Fights at sporting venues across the world have been happening since the days when Romans made people battle with actual lions and tigers and stuff. They’re nothing new. But every now and then a video of an older gentleman kicking a younger kid in the face pop up and you just have to watch. Arizona…

  3. Your Tankapalooza update: Not the best/worst

    Sixers Dream Team Final Auditions 07/17

    The Sixers went on a nice long stretch of losing over the past few weeks. They’re simply awful on the road, it seems. But they’ve bounced back a bit and earned a very hard fought double overtime victory on Tuesday night over the equally scrappy Magic — those dudes would NOT go away. So where…

  4. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar: On the half life of Folenium

    Dec 4, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

    Smiths Logo - Bar

    The winner of this week’s $25 gift card to Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse is regular commenter psudrozz who won mostly because we didn’t know what he was talking about despite it sounding intelligent and perhaps even funny/clever. Not sure. But this is what he said on Chip Kelly naming Nick Foles the Eagles…

  5. Erik Kratz traded for Brad Lincoln: Let’s all watch the turkey bacon commercial one last time

    Dec 4, 2013, 9:05 AM EDT

    Kratz.Turkey.bacon

    “Hey, you’re Erik Kratz, the catcher for Philadelphia, right?” the cartoon turkey wearing a pig’s costume innocently asks. In the fun and exciting world of television commercials, Erik Kratz still answers that question affirmatively. But we’re not W.B. Mason and we don’t live in jingles. After Tuesday’s wild day in Major League Baseball, the spokesman…

  6. Drexel beats Villanova in huuuuge upset

    Dec 4, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT

    The.Cup.2

    If you’re one of those people in the Philadelphia area who has to wake up really early in the morning — like, before 10:00 am — and have to sit in traffic while maneuvering an automobile while attempting to drink enough coffee as to not be a total zombie on your way to a fun…

  7. Quotable: Ruben Amaro on John Mayberry Jr.

    Dec 3, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Mayberry4

    “Didn’t think about it all,” the Phillies’ GM said when asked if he considered non-tendering Mayberry. “He was not a non-tender candidate for us. Any player who can hit 14 home runs in this day and age off the bench in limited at-bats and have the versatility he does … there was no thought to…

  8. Link Dump: Pat Croce’s mansion, DeSean dating Ashanti, Ruf times, and high fives

    Dec 3, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    croce1

    Pat Croce’s Main Line mansion can be yours for just under $8 million as the former Sixers exec has listed his Villanova home for sale. You can check out some photos of the pad above. The Jolly Roger bar stools are a bit much. [6ABC] DeSean Jackson is apparently dating Ashanti. [Philly Mag] Swearing while…

  9. CAKE CAKE CAKE: What taste better? DeSean Jackson’s Benz or the stack of Benjamins?

    Dec 2, 2013, 6:58 PM EDT

    Sheesh.Djacc.benz.cake

    DeSean Jackson celebrated his 27th birthday on Sunday with a nice Philadelphia Eagles victory over the Arizona Cardinals. As if the gluttony of Thanksgiving wasn’t enough, DeSean Jackson was treated to the sweet treats you see below. Yes, those are two different birthday cakes made to look like a Mercedes-Benz and a stack of $100…

  10. Michael Carter-Williams doesn’t see a dime of his NBA salary… yet

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    mcw.bulls.rose

    Tales of pro athletes burning through the millions they’ve made are too commonplace these days. The one about Allen Iverson never bringing bags on the road and purchasing new clothes in every city they went to is a personal wtf/fave of mine. But every now and then a guy comes along and wins Player of…

  11. Chip Kelly’s all like, “do you even know what a wildcat is?”

    Dec 2, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    brad.smith

    Chip Kelly is a beautiful man. A football genius. Bringer of joy to South Philadelphia. He’s a swell guy by all accounts. But even Chip Kelly makes mistakes. Like when he removed red hot Nick Foles from the quarterback position for one play on Sunday in favor of… Brad Smith. The guy has been on…

  12. Eagles players celebrate victory over Arizona in style

    I told you Jason Peters Instagram is the best. pic.twitter.com/OJL3cKKNEi — Connor Barwin (@ConnorBarwin98) December 1, 2013 Sports are supposed to be fun and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having a little fun after a victory. So it was good to see Renaissance man Connor Barwin and his boys doing just that after the Philadelphia…

  13. GIF: Riley Cooper’s amazing one-handed catch

    Dec 1, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Riley Cooper

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper made the catch of the first half when he went up way high for a Nick Foles ball and managed to wrangle it in with one hand. But the highlight reel play didn’t end there as Cooper put on a spin move that Shady McCoy would be proud of…

  14. Curt Schilling and Howard Eskin take to Twitter to rip each other over Hall of Fame

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    The Baseball Hall of Fame will go through their voting process in the coming weeks to induct the next class of ball players to get their mug on a plaque in Cooperstown. You may have been reminded of this when the folks over at Deadspin made a mockery of the process by purchasing one baseball…

  15. #AskFakeWIPCaller: A Philly Sports Mailbag

    Nov 27, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    buddy

    With the Eagles on their bye week, the Phillies assembling a squad of over-35 All-Stars and the Sixers completely ruining their future by trying hard and winning, I figured we’d try something different this week: It’s the first-ever @FakeWIPCaller Philly sports mailbag. @FakeWIPCaller @The700Level how many Super Bowls would Jim Johnson have won if he…

  16. President Barack Obama reveals he was once a 76ers fan, noted Republican Spencer Hawes reacts

    We recently wrote about Dr. J appearing on the Colbert Report television program and telling a tale of how he was once set to play a basketball game with President Obama and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. So it was extra interesting today to learn that the President was once a 76ers fan, probably back when Julius…

  17. Video: DeSean Jackson helping one victim of bullying

    Nov 26, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT

    Desean.bullying

    DeSean Jackson is something of a lightning rod athlete in the city of Philadelphia. He electrifies on the field with his speed but also raises some eyebrows at times with some of the things he does or says. We stumbled upon this video of DeSean making the effort to help one local kid who was…

  18. Video: Carlos Ruiz surprises local 6-year-old boy battling leukemia

    Nov 25, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    chooch

    The Philadelphia Phillies made the re-signing of catcher Carlos Ruiz official last week. And while the specifics of his 3-year contract are up for debate among the baseball savvy, the awesomeness of Chooch off the field is most certainly not. He added to his awesomeness in a special way last week. Chooch showed up to…

  19. Eagles still control their own playoff destiny but wildcard now viable; plus black jerseys Sunday

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    eagles.unis

    Prior to this weekend’s action, it was commonly believed that the Birds would have to win the NFC East in order to earn a spot in the playoffs. After an exciting weekend of football around the NFL, however, it’s actually possible they could sneak in with a wildcard spot. Phil Sheridan blogging for ESPN explains…

  20. Nick Foles had a historic month of November

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT

    foles

    Nick Foles has been downright impressive as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles — especially so over his past few games. Just how impressive has Foles been over the last few weeks? Check out this QB rating nugget for the month of November that was dug up by the NFL’s Director of NFC Football…

  21. The Cowboys won and there’s an Andy Reid / butt GIF going around

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT

    reidriversbuttbump

    The Eagles may have been off relaxing in the warm weather — we’re looking at you, Conor Barwin (okay, maybe not you exactly) — but there was plenty of great football to keep us entertained on Sunday. Unfortunately, the Cowboys eeked out a victory over the Giants to jump the Eagles as leaders of the…

  22. Mike Vick says Nick Foles should remain the starter

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    foles-vick-presser

    For whatever reason, Chip Kelly doesn’t seem to be a fan of naming a starting QB. All of his intimations are that Nick Foles will be his guy. Nick is winning games and taking great care of the ball. That’s what Chip values at the position. So pretty much everybody agrees that Nick Foles should…

  23. You can purchase Shane Victorino’s scraggily beard hair on eBay

    Just felt the need to point that out to you. It’s true. You can, in fact, purchase the beard hair of Red Sox players Shane Victorino and David Ortiz on eBay. Mike Oz of Yahoo!’s Big League Stew explains, “The items come with autographed razors used at the post-World Series ceremonial shaving that both Ortiz and Victorino…

  24. Joe Biden is a crazy person, also a Phillies fan

    Nov 21, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    biden

    Joe Biden was talking some smack on your favorite sandwich today down in Washington, DC. Some Delaware sandwich shop opened up a DC location and the Veep was there to talk some smack on Philly’s finest. That’s crazy talk. But then he also kinda stood up for Phillies fans, I think. So we’ll give him…

  25. Chip Kelly and Nick Foles mic’d up for the Redskins game is awesome

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Riley Cooper, Nick Foles

    The Sound FX clip over on the Eagles website of Chip Kelly and Nick Foles being mic’d up for Sunday’s win over the Redskins is fantastic. You get a glimpse into what the coach who loves speed is like on the sidelines and how everyone else, from the Eagles quarterback to the referees on the…
