This isn’t said that often, but maybe it should be. Once you’re a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, you’ll always be a member of the Birds. Then again, we probably shouldn’t do that.

If we make that type of proclamation, we’ll have to include guys like Vince Young, Cullen Jenkins, and Jason Babin. Those guys aren’t Eagles. They were mercenaries.

You get the idea though. It’s nice to see that college atmosphere in the NFL sometimes, and it’s fun to see guys who made a name for themselves in the kelly or midnight green still supporting the franchise and the City of Brotherly Love.

Seriously, how cool was it to see Jason Kelce in that Mummer outfit or Jason Peters in that Brian Dawkins jersey at the Eagles Super Bowl parade?

One Philadelphia Eagles legend thinks the 76ers are making the NBA Finals.

April’s third full weekend was a big one for Philly sports. The Philadelphia Phillies and 76ers both won on Friday, and on Sunday, everyone, including the Eagles, celebrated the Philly Phanatic’s birthday.

The ‘love’ the city of Philadelphia is known for spilled over into Monday as one of the greatest Eagles running backs ever made a declaration about where he thinks the Sixers are headed. Take a look.

Hey, if Brian Westbrook said it, that’s good enough for us. We don’t need any stats or highlight film.

Now, for 36’s premonition to hold, that would mean that Doc Rivers, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and company will have to knock off some of the favorites in the Eastern Conference like the high-powered Brooklyn Nets, the Milwaukee Bucks, and dare we say the Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks?

light. Trending. Nick Sirianni’s staff has its first hiccup

The Eastern Conference sure isn’t what it used to be, is it? ‘The process’ took longer than we were told it would, but it’s good to see some good basketball being played at the Wells Fargo Center these days. Who knows? We may even see Jalen Hurts ringing the bell once the NBA’s postseason begins.
