Player I’ll be watching
McManus: Brandon Boykin
Boykin made some pretty good memories during his last trip to AT&T Stadium. His interception of a Kyle Orton pass with under two minutes to play last December secured a 24-22 win that punched the Eagles’ ticket to the playoffs.
“It was a big interception and it clinched the division so in essence, yeah, it was the biggest moment of my career as far as making a play,” he said. “But I can’t live off of that, you know what I’m saying? I don’t really care about it anymore. That was last year just like six picks was last year, just like we were division champs last year. You can’t live in the past in this league.” Read more »

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to feel bad whenever someone who was visiting you took your neighbor’s parking space? (Or, heaven forbid, if your neighbor’s visitor took your spot, forcing you to park half a block from your house…) This Berwyn gem doesn’t have that problem: there’s room for eight cars. Additionally, the two garages have apartments above them, allowing you to host guests at a moment’s notice.
The home itself, designed by the extolled Rene Hoffman and built by David Semerjian, is situated among 22 acres of Brandywine Conservancy land and boasts wide-plank hardwood floors, imported stone, custom cabinetry and six fireplaces. Outside, the pool and pool house are accompanied by various living spaces and two fireplaces. Given the property’s extensive acreage, additional outbuildings or a tennis court are possible.
