Even before he left the rams, it was rumored Steve Spagnuolo was coming to the Eagles to be the new defensive coordinator. Makes sense, he still has a home here, his wife is from here, and he says he loves it here.
The sixers are playing really well, winning seven of their last eight games. They are first in the Atlantic division, three games over the Celtics and two over the Knicks, and are off to their best start since 2000 (when they won ten in a row).
Most of the players and coaches don’t like him. Which actually means he is doing his job. Anyone can see that Hartnell is physical and takes shots at people making him an aggravating guy to play against.
Bill O’Brien asked the alumni at Penn State to give him a chance — and it looks like – finally — they are.

Today I sat down for lunch with Former Flyer Eric Lindros to talk about the state of the game and the leagues growing number of concussions.
So the Eagles kept the dream alive after beating the Miami Dolphins, 26-10. But they are still 5-8 and it would take about 19 different things to go their way to secure a playoff berth.
Life with out Pronger? So far this season Chris Pronger has been out with an eye injury, knee injury and a mysterious illness, which now looks like concussion like symptoms.
They started the week with a blow out loss to the Patriots and ended it with a blow out loss to the Seahawks.
So, the Sixers have decided to get rid of their mascot Hip Hop. Apparently the fans didn’t love him and so the new owners have retained Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and Raymond Entertainment Group to develop the team’s next mascot.
