  1. Terrell’s Payday to Shrink; LeCharles Bentley

    Mar 3, 2006, 1:41 AM EDT

    The free agency period in the NFL was set to start today, but issues with the collective bargaining agreement has pushed it back 3 days.  What does all of this mean?  How does it impact the Eagles?  To put it simply, the Eagles are in a pretty favorable situation, being favorably under the cap.  The…

  2. Iguodala Stepping Out of Iversons Shadow

    Mar 2, 2006, 12:37 PM EDT

    Apparently Andre Iguodala and company want nothing to do with Greg Oden. It took dealing the league’s leading scorer and removing any delusions that the Sixers were trying to contend rather than rebuild to happen, but AI9 looks like he’s finally taking his game to the level we’ve expected for the last two years. Iguodala…

  3. Larry Bowa Has Crush on Bobby Abreu

    Mar 2, 2006, 9:44 AM EDT

    I always liked Larry Bowa.  Philly seemed to give him a lot of crap, but it was nice having a Phillies legend be our manager.  I enjoyed his addition to ESPN’s baseball crew and loved when he commented on the Phillies.  Now Larry is is New York.  It’s pretty weird. Bowa looked at the list…

  4. Brian Westbrook is Underrated

    Mar 1, 2006, 5:34 PM EDT

    I felt the need to vent a little bit over at the Fanhouse about how Brian Westbrook doesn’t always get the credit he deserves as one the games truly elite players. Fanhouse: Brian Westbrook is Underrated

  5. Must. Stuff. Ballot.

    Mar 1, 2006, 2:50 PM EDT

    ESPN’s Page 2 is having a competition of sorts to vote for the best mascot in sports.  They broke it down into strange categories and are calling the Phillie Phanatic a cartoon.  I don’t know if the big green guy would take to that real nicely. So anyway, go vote for Philly’s finest.

  6. 10 Years Ago Today

    Mar 1, 2006, 2:28 PM EDT

    I’m a Philly sports nut, but if there’s anything I was ever more passionate about it was music.  I think it’s safe to say I was a Phish head at multiple points in my life — perhaps even ’til this day. It all started 10 years ago today at the Spectrum.  It was one of…

  7. Quite Frankly, Stephen A. Wants You

    Mar 1, 2006, 5:09 AM EDT

    I recently got an email from representatives at ESPN2 inviting me to appear on Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith to chat with Phillies great Mike Schmidt.  No. Wait.  They wanted to give me an exclusive invite only available to high profile sports bloggers to sit in on a viewing.  No. Wait.  They wanted to…

  8. WATN: Donald Brashear

    Feb 28, 2006, 3:44 PM EDT

    It was a sad day in Flyers history when Donald Brashear was released last off-season, but it almost seemed necessary at the time. The Flyers lost in the playoffs last season because they were still too big, slow, and prone to penalties; the league had gone to the burners, with obstruction calls handed out like…

  9. Center Court with Chris Webber

    Feb 28, 2006, 1:19 PM EDT

    Chris Webber is loved in Sacramento where he played seven years of all star quality ball.  In Philly, fans treat him like the overpaid player he has become.  The Sixers got handled last night in Sacramento but CWebb received nice ovations from the crowd despite only scoring four points.  Perhaps he spent to much time…

  10. Iverson Shafted

    Feb 28, 2006, 10:52 AM EDT

    A pretty great headline on the back of the Daily News today.  It looks like Allen Iverson got the shaft from playing in the 2008 Olympics for team USA.  I can’t say I am surprised, but I am a little disappointed.  It is still unclear as to why Iverson wasn’t given the nod, but it…

  11. Support Villanova: Buy or Sell?

    Feb 28, 2006, 6:45 AM EDT

    When Jameer Nelson, Delonte West, and Phil Martelli lead St. Joes into the NCAA tournament a few years back as a number one seed it seemed to me that all of Philadelphia was pulling for them.  This year, Villanova, baring a collapse in the Big East Tournament, will be a number one seed as well,…

  12. Jeff Garcia Mania?

    Feb 28, 2006, 2:14 AM EDT

    Jeff Garcia has taken this Eagles team from wondering what kind of draft pick they could get to the brink of a division title with a very good chance of making a Super Bowl run to boot.  There is no arguing he has performed better than all of our expectations.  His acuracy has been something…
