Spike Eskin Says
Last week, it was a quarterback conversation. This week, after Nick Foles’ performance in Tampa, it’s a full-fledged quarterback controversy. This thing is still gaining speed. If Foles has another big-time game against the Cowboys, look out.
Not only has the last year or two in Philadelphia sports been pretty terrible, it seems like there’s always a new reminder of just how terrible it’s been.
In today’s hypothetical trade, the Sixers acquire Kentavious Caldwell-Pope from the Pistons.
I want the Eagles to take a chance on Josh Freeman. I can’t imagine this is going to happen, but I would be elated if it did.
Andy Reid returned to Lincoln Financial Field last night, and brought the 2012 Eagles with him.
With Chip Kelly’s offense being the talk of the town this week, I applaud the creativity exhibited in today’s made-up trade.
The long summer of discontent is over, and football is here. I feel like we celebrate the return of football like 75 times a year, but this is really it. It’s not mini-camp or the start of training camp or the preseason or the draft, it’s actually football.
Getting fired was the best thing to ever happen to Charlie Manuel in Philadelphia. Imagine he plays out the season, and the Phillies continue to play as poorly as they had. Charlie leaves, everyone is miserable, the season sort of fades away into nothingness.
This is the part of the Eagles preseason that is usually pretty tough to get through. It’s like coming down off of a caffeine high. When training camp starts, everyone is so fired up. Then there’s the first preseason game, and everyone’s fired up. And then we have to wait an entire month through terrible football and lesser storylines until we get an actual game.
Check out a potential four-team trade for the Sixers that involves the Lakers, Warriors and Rockets.
The top three most loved and hated sports figures this week in Philadelphia.
Another week, another controversy. With that, another controversy that doesn’t really matter.Sixers owner Josh Harris wants to buy the Devils. Cue the outrage.
A new era in Eagles football starts tonight, and that is a super big deal. I mean, it will be a big deal for about a quarter, and then the game will devolve into preseason slop like it always does, but it’s still football.
Two weeks ago in Philadelphia, there was a whole lot of nothing going on in sports. It was clearly the calm before the storm. Though the Phillies still did a whole lot of nothing, at least they made some news doing it this week.
This team is in real, serious trouble. And it’s not the sort of trouble they can spend their way out of.
