Happ and two prospects, rumored to be Vance Worley and Anthony Gose, to Houston and will get Oswalt and $10 million from the Astros. More updates and reactions as news comes in. According ...

Allen signs, Cooper impresses, offensive line issues

The first three days of training camp are in the books and what have we seen so far? Honestly, not much. First round pick Brandon Graham still has yet to sign a contract, and contrary to his words from a couple of weeks ago, he's a camp no- show. While I am still confident that this isn't ...

Training camp preview: quarterbacks and receivers

With just a day from the start of training camp at Lehigh, it's time for us to bring you the second installment in our preview series. A few days ago we looked at the pros and cons of the offensive line going into camp, and now it's time to focus on some of the guys they're trying to protect ...

The Sixers fork in the road

The Sixers may have benefited from a short lived buzz due to the drafting of Evan Turner, the work is not finished.  In all reality, the work may not be finished before the start of the 2010/11 campaign. The Sixers have reached the proverbial  "fork in the road." It's where decisions must be made, like it or not. Mainly, the Sixers ...

Something Missing

Posted by Chris Shafer on January - 22 - 2009
Danny Briere is the Flyers highest paid player currently on the roster but has missed most of this season due to injury. There is absolutely no question that the Flyers can win games. Tonight they welcomed a hot Atlanta Thrashers team to the Wachovia Center once again ending the Thrashers winning streak and sending them packing. It marks the 12th straight win for backup goaltender Antero Niittymaki against his childhood rival...

Photo Credit: JasonB3 on Flickr The 2008 Eagles season was a wild ride and reminiscent of a song you may know by Katy Perry: “Cause you’re hot then you’re cold You’re yes then you’re no You’re in and you’re out You’re up and you’re down” You get the picture. Even though we didn’t make the Super Bowl, we had a memorable season filled with great Eagles moments....

Hartnell (LW) scoring in an earlier meeting between the Penguins and the Flyers. While the Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Washington Capitals all seem to be growing into a three-sided war, the rivalry really began in the state of Pennsylvania at the end of a Flyers’ postseason birth. The Penguins had defeated the Flyers in the Eastern Conference Finals earning the right to play for the Stanley Cup. This...

Flyers Go Unrecognized For Winning

Posted by Chris Shafer on January - 11 - 2009
Luca Sbisa (D) was selected by the Flyers in the first round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and has become a star at the age of 18. The Philadelphia Flyers have become the epitome of underappreciated as the NHL hands out its mid-season honors to the players it feels have exemplified the best of the best out on the ice. It’s not unlike the league to ignore some of its more talented players in favor of bigger names, but this...

Winning Is For The Birds

Posted by Chris Shafer on January - 11 - 2009
The Eagles defense forces two turnovers on downs and even more punts in their 23-11 win over the Giants. Winning is clearly for the birds even though it seems that every major newspaper will have an article with such a headline. This weekend the Eagles and Cardinals have both pulled off upsets leading them into a matchup that the Eagles have already seen this season. That may have been a different Cardinals team though as...
THE RIVALRY STILL LIVES Cole (PHI) and Howard (PHI) attack quarterback Eli Manning (NYG). It has been a while for the Philadelphia Eagles. Everyone remembers the thrill of the NFC Championship. Those same people also remember the frustration of losing 4 straight. Either way it has been a while since the Eagles could say that they were in the running for the Super Bowl. This rivalry game against the Giants stems all the way...
