    Dude’s lookin’ comfortable! RT Desean Jackson, Garcon, D Hall, Wale in DC (via @Wale) — David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) April 1, 2014 The Redskins were listed as the oddsmaker’s favorite to land former Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson and if Monday night was any indication, Vegas sure is right a lot.

    The only thing Monday’s opening day down in Texas was missing was Chris Wheeler on your television calling baseball “goofy.” I’m not sure what was least expected: the Phillies bats erupting for 14 runs or Cliff Lee struggling mightily, allowing 8 earned runs on 11 hits over 5 innings of work. But at the end…

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

  4. Jimmy Rollins hits an opening day grand slam for his 200th career home run

    Mar 31, 2014, 3:10 PM EDT


    Jimmmmaaaaayyyy! Remember how fun this can be? Jimmy Rollins bashed a grand slam to the seats in right down in Texas in his second at-bat of the season. It just so happened to be the 200th home run of his career. It was the second major milestone Jimmy reached on the day. By making his…

  5. Reasons to get excited for Phillies baseball: At least we get to watch Cliff Lee every fifth day

    Looking, ummm, good there, Chase...

    They’re not really built to be a win now team. They haven’t been bad enough over the past few seasons to have promising young pieces to look ahead to a bright future. And their spring was one for the crapper. So aside from “it’s always nice to have baseball around” and “the lines at Citizens…

  6. Odds on who will sign DeSean Jackson: Skins and Raiders favorites

    Mar 31, 2014, 12:05 PM EDT


    DeSean Jackson is no longer a Philadelphia Eagle but chances are he’ll pop up somewhere and give Birds’ fans headaches. Kind of hopping it’s not the Redskins, who oddsmakers are placing as the favorite to sign the speedy wideout. Reports over the weekend said DeSean would be visiting DC today as the first stop on…

    DeSean Jackson

    You probably heard that a dozen times over the weekend. Whether you were the one being asked or the words were coming out of your mouth, Philadelphians everywhere want to know what really happened with DeSean Jackson. I don’t think the answer is as clear cut as some would like it to be. I don’t…

    It’s over. 26 games and exactly two months since the 76ers last experienced the joy of finishing a basketball game with more points than the dudes wearing the other unis, the Sixers are once again winners, triumphing over the Detroit Pistons tonight in front of a very appreciative Wells Fargo Center. The losing streak is…

    A strangely huge crowd of more than 17,000 showed up at Wells Fargo Center Saturday night expecting (hoping?) to see the Sixers set the NBA record for consecutive losses at 27. They forgot that the Detroit Pistons are a total dumpster fire. The Sixers beat the Pistons, 123-98, in an absolute laugher. It was the…

    It’s times like this where you have to force yourself to step back and look at a situation objectively, not through green-tinted glasses. The Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, and it is 100 percent Jackson’s fault. Look, I’m not going to attempt to spin Jackson’s release as the Eagles got better on the football field…
