Nick Foles next? John DeFilippo, who coached in Philly, lands with Jaguars as their new OC

One of the easiest connections to make is Foles to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have a lot of talent but nothing at quarterback. Then on Wednesday the Jaguars agreed to hire John DeFilippo to be their new offensive coordinator, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Before failing with the Minnesota Vikings last season, DeFilippo became a hot name coaching the Eagles quarterbacks, including Foles, two seasons ago.

Pederson reiterates Wentz is Philly’s No. 1 QB

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Eagles coach Doug Pederson reiterated Tuesday that Carson Wentz will be the team’s starting quarterback in 2019. Wentz missed the final three games of the regular season and two playoff games because of a back injury. Nick Foles led Philadelphia to four straight wins and was 27 yards away from taking the […]

Signs you’re Philadelphian

Wherever they are in the world, Philadelphians stick out like sore thumbs — the snarky tone, the accent, and the undying love for our city give us away every time. A source of pride for all who hail from the City of Brotherly Love, here are 10 dead giveaways that you’re from Philly. 1. Everything you own just happens to be Eagles green. Look, it’s not intentional, mostly. Yes, you bought that fresh Malcolm Jenkins jersey at the start of the season, but the fact that almost every other T-shi...

New commentary at The American Conservative makes the case for "Why Conservatives Should Oppose the Death Penalty"

In prior posts here and here and here, I highlighted a series of lengthy articles in The American Conservative that were part of "a collaborative series with the R Street Institute exploring conservative approaches to criminal justice reform."   These folks are at it again with this new lengthy essay titled simply "Why Conservatives Should Oppose the Death Penalty."  The extendded essay, authored by Arthur Rizer and Marc Hyden of R Street Institute, merits a full read, and here are some excerpts...

Kartje: Nick Foles is defying logic again in second run at Super Bowl

The strangest chapter of perhaps the strangest career in NFL history began, rather fittingly, with a phone call from Jeff Fisher. It was late July 2016. The Rams had just move to Los Angeles and drafted a ew, new quarterback, much to the chagrin of the old, new quarterback, who had just signed a two-year, $24.5 million extension a year before. In spite of that deal, no one expected Nick Foles at the Rams facilities that offseason. Fisher had benched Foles in favor of Case Keenum the previous Oct...

Why Did All The Bells On Philly’s Avenue Of The Arts Stop Ringing?

In 1996, when a multimillion-dollar renovation of South Broad Street was completed, sound artist Robert Coburn attached 39 small bronze bells to lampposts along the newly-christened “Avenue of the Arts.” For a year or so, they played melodies fed from an electronic terminal, but they’ve been silent for two decades now. A reporter found out why. — The Philadelphia Inquirer

Nick Foles knows his time in Philly is likely nearing an end

Nick Foles is in a unique situation, a Super Bowl MVP trying to lead his team to a second straight championship knowing he will most likely play somewhere else next season. Nothing about what Foles has done for the Philadelphia Eagles is ordinary. ''I'm not worried about the future but I understand where I stand and every time I wear that jersey is special,'' Foles said Wednesday.

Losing Streak Hits Eight For The Philadelphia Flyers

from Sam Carchidi of, The Flyers set an NHL record Tuesday night at Capital One Arena. The bad news: It was an unwanted record — seven goalies used in a team’s first 43 games. The worse news: The new goalie, the well-traveled Mike McKenna, couldn’t stop the Flyers' spiral as they lost their eighth straight, falling to the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals, 5-3, at Capital One Arena. McKenna, 35, played decently as he became the seventh Flyers go...

I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be joining the Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs Accelerator, Powered by Techstars as Managing Director in Philadelphia in 2019!

Hurricanes Have Big 2nd to Top Struggling Flyers

PHILADELPHIA — Dougie Hamilton, Justin Williams and Teuvo Teravainen scored second-period goals to lead the Carolina Hurricanes past the woeful Philadelphia Flyers, 5-3 on Thursday night. The Flyers fired coach Dave Hakstol and general manager Ron Hextall last month and the shake-up has yet to spark any kind of sign of playoff life for a franchise that hasn’t won a Stanley Cup since 1975. The Flyers lost their fifth straight game and fell to 3-5-1 under interim coach Scott Gordon since his promo...

New Year’s resolutions Philadelphia

Every year, we Philadelphians reflect on the improvements we want to make in our lives, just after we get home from Two Street on New Year’s Day.

Flyers Showing Signs of Life in Midst of Struggles

As the halfway point of the National Hockey League season approaches, the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves in a tough spot. A tumultuous stretch of play led to big changes within the organization with desperate hopes of turning things around on the ice. Now, with those changes taking root, the Flyers are taking some steps forward yet still take too many back. When Scott Gordon was named interim head coach earlier in the month, it brought a breath of fresh air to the locker room. The cal...

A hasty review of the SL&P year that was 2018

Year in review stories are catnip to me, so I figured I might as well use an unexpected little pocket of free time to create my own listing of big events in 2018 based on a lightning quick review of blog posts from the past year.  This listing is not representative or even all that reflective, and I welcome reader input on stories forgotten or unmentioned (or poorly ranked).  So, for giggles and comment, here is a list of post titles and links providing an imperfect, too-quick review of some not...
