Sixers make short work of Heat as 'The Process' advances to second round

Meek Mill's nightmare comes to an end as Sixers' dream season continues

Before playing in Super Bowl LII, the Philadelphia Eagles trotted onto the field to the tune of "Dreams and Nightmares." The Meek Mill tune hyped the team so much that they proudly won a championship for Meek's home town while the rapper sat in a prison cell, stuck there after being...

Eagles' Nick Foles is happy, but could be happier

It's still a little jarring to consider that Nick Foles won Super Bowl MVP. After being traded away from the Eagles three years ago. And then nearly retiring from professional football. And then the emergence of Carson Wentz as an MVP-candidate quarterback. Even the man himself is still trying...

Jason Kelce's gives look inside epic Super Bowl parade speech

Are Eagles actually going to visit the White House?

It's no secret that the Eagles are a progressive locker room. Led by Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long and recently departed Torrey Smith, several Eagles' players have suggested that they would not accept an invitation to the White House.  It is, of course, customary for the Super Bowl...

What will it take for Sixers to close out Heat in 5?

It's been a season of firsts for the Sixers.  The first playoff berth since 2012, the first team to win 50-plus games since 2001, the first rookie to have 12 triple doubles since 1961, and the first playoff series for the fruits of The Process — Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Dario Saric...

NFL Rumors: Are Eagles clearing cap space for Dez Bryant?

In technicality, there is no actual penalty for NFL teams if they are over the salary cap. Teams have a limit of around $177 million to spend on players in the 2018 season, and the NFL will, presumably, make any transaction that goes over the cam threshhold invalid. That being said, the Eagles...

Glen Macnow: Flyers off-season should start with search for new coach

In the end, for the 43rd season in a row, the Flyers skated off the ice as losers. Even as some of the gray-haired heroes of those prehistoric Stanley Cup days watched from the rafters in South Philadelphia, angry fans spotted the ice with beer cans. Let’s agree it was a handful of idiots...

Flyers blow two leads, end season in Game 6 disappointment

  In a memorable (but for many, also forgettable) Game 6 in Philadelphia, the Penguins proved too opportunistic — and talented — for the fledgling Flyers to defeat to force a Game 7, faltering 8-5 to end their up and down season. If nothing else, Sunday afternoon's tilt...

Phillies are right at home at Citizens Bank Park this season

Sixers' Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid already playing like legends

Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are rising stars. Probably All-Stars. Even potentially Hall of Famers, though that’s to be determined. The magnitude of the playoffs doesn't seem to be too much for the 76ers’ dynamic duo. They’re thriving in every way imaginable. Embiid had 14...

Sixers explode in fourth, down Heat in Joel Embiid's return

Prior to Thursday night's Game 3 tilt, the Sixers hadn't won a game in Miami since 2014. After faltering at home in the second game of their seven-game series against the Heat, Philly needed some firepower to bring it to South Florida and a shot in the arm from a returning Joel Embiid was...

Eagles 2018 full schedule: Eagles play five primetime games

It doesn't seem too long ago that Eagles fans were adding "February 4, 2018" onto their sports calendar.  Months after the Eagles hoisted their first ever Lombardi trophy, the calender is turning — literally — as a new slate of 16 games was announced for all 32 NFL...

Why undrafted free agents will be key, again, for Eagles in 2018

Most of the buzz leading up to next week's 2018 NFL Draft will be about what order the quarterbacks go in the top five, where Saquan Barkley will land and — more locally — what the Eagles will do with the 32nd overall pick. Lacking any picks on Day 2 (in the second or third rounds...

Penguins playing at championship level in playoffs against Flyers

The Pittsburgh Penguins didn’t look this good during the regular season. They didn’t even look this good in any of the four regular season games when they swept and outscored the Flyers, 20-11. They weren’t this fast. They weren’t this strong along the boards. They weren...
