  1. Eagles great at drafting for future

    Mar 28, 2005, 10:20 AM EDT

    There is a nice little piece today over at Foxsports talking about the Eagles efficiency in recent years at drafting for the future, and not necessarily current need.  They use Lito and Mr. Brown as examples to replace Troy and Bobby. An AFC executive says that by the second year, high draft picks should be…

  2. Phillies roster spots coming down to wire

    Mar 28, 2005, 6:12 AM EDT

    With only a week left until opening day, it’s nearing that time for the Phillies to be finalizing their roster for opening day.  Kenny Lofton and Marlon Byrd are likely to open the season on the DL, which leaves 2 likely spots open with a few players fighting for a spot.  I would love to…

  3. Iverson hits game winner against Toronto

    Mar 25, 2005, 11:47 PM EDT

    Donyell Marshall only had 7 three pointers this time around and that wasn’t enough.  A.I. hit the game winner with 2 seconds left to give the Sixers a 103-101 win over Toronto. C-Webb had a nice game with 32 points, second to Iverson’s 36.  Can both superstars actually work together?  Tonight is a good example…

  4. McNabb lobbied for Plax

    Mar 25, 2005, 9:26 AM EDT

    When McNabb lobbied for T.O. last off season it worked.. his attempt to lobby for Plax this off season didn’t.  Foxsports is reporting that Donovan tried to convince the Eagles management that Plax would look good in green.  You can’t argue with DonnyMac, but the price tag the Giants paid was a bit high.

  5. Philadelphia ranks 34th

    Mar 24, 2005, 3:19 PM EDT

    Some website ranks city skylines and Philadelphia came in at 34th globally.  The criteria is kind of whacked, but who really cares? Completely unrelated: You can purchase jerseys which Eagles players wore in the NFCC game against Atlanta.

  6. Iggy is The Man: Trip Dub

    Mar 24, 2005, 11:20 AM EDT

    When the Sixers drafted Andre Iguodala last year, Sixers fans didn’t really know him, now he is a fan favorite.  The guy has hops, throwing down huge jams night in and night out.  But he isn’t just a leaper, the kid has game.  He became the first rookie this season to pull off a tripple…

  7. Reid takes vacation, Doesn’t remember pants

    Mar 24, 2005, 11:13 AM EDT

    Ok, So maybe I made up the part about the pants, but he did take a nice vacation.  I’m sure it was much nicer than your last vacation.. Sure tops the beating I took in Vegas. He does actually open up a little in this piece and enjoys a few whale blowings. Link: Philadelphia Daily…

  8. Iverson a hog? Not exactly new news.

    Mar 24, 2005, 2:35 AM EDT

    I don’t know if many of you read this article about Iverson being a ball hog on ESPN Insider, but who gives a shit about a players "usage rate"?  This is like the guy Eskin has on his shows on Fridays to predict games over the weekend.  "When Bayside High plays a revenge game against…

  9. Randy Wolf needs a haircut.

    Mar 23, 2005, 12:23 PM EDT

    Randy Wolf needs a haircut, but he is having a decent spring. The Phillies are expecting big things from Wolfy this year.. or the Wolf Pack may not show up all season. Link: Philadelphia Phillies : News : Philadelphia Phillies News. His day ended nearly 30 minutes earlier amid the quiet of the Carpenter Complex,…

  10. No more outfield for Howard

    Mar 23, 2005, 9:23 AM EDT

    The Phillies have pulled the plug on trying to teach Ryan Howard to play outfield.  Simply put, Howard did not look good at all when trying to catch fly balls.  He looked very uncomfortable and the Phillies figured it wasn’t worth the time and effort to help him assimilate to the new position.  So don’t…

  11. Eagles open season on MNF in Atlanta

    Mar 22, 2005, 4:37 PM EDT

    The Falcons appear to have bulked their roster up with a few nice off season pickups.  The Eagles will travel down their to open the season on monday night.  This is definitely not a walk over game for the Birds.  This should be a great match up.
