You may have seen all the hullabaloo about the really awful Tom Brady courtroom sketch that emerged from the quarterback’s challenge to his suspension in the “Deflategate” case. But the weird art apparently helped Philadelphia Police solve one mystery — why the Eagles lost Super Bowl XXXIX: Read more »
Homefront: The Revolution is an upcoming video game where you play a resistance fighter in Philadelphia. But this isn’t a game set in the Revolutionary War. The plot, according to Kotaku: “Set in an alternate timeline where Korea and other Asian nations form a federation before invading the U.S., Homefront places you in the shoes of a fighter in the Philadelphia resistance.”
The game’s latest trailer actually shows the city rendered pretty faithfully, especially the skyline (though the placement of houses seems to be a bit wonky). That’s okay, though, because of something I spotted in recently-released gameplay footage. Read more »
Chip Kelly is not a racist.
But he apparently is oblivious to why some black players may think he’s tinged with a little racism when they unload those charges on their former coach after he has shown them the door.
If Kelly is as smart as we all think he is, he cannot therefore be blind to the fact that his support of wide receiver Riley Cooper has provided the undercurrent of all the sniping done by the likes of LeSean McCoy, Tre Thomas, ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, and, last but not least, recently deposed cornerback Brandon Boykin.
TMZ caught up with Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks outside an airport to ask him his take on the Meek Mill / Drake feud that’s set the Internet on fire over the past week.
He basically said Drake may not be welcome next time he comes to town, because Meek Mill, well, “he definitely runs Philly,” Kendricks said. Then he implied—likely in a playful way—that things could get ugly if the “Started From the Bottom” rapper paid a visit to the 215. “I wonder how it’s gonna be if Drake tries to come and perform there … ”
Check out the full interview above.
The feud between Drake and Meek Mill began last week when Meek, who was born and raised in Philly, tweeted that Drake didn’t write his own raps. The latter followed up by releasing two tracks that dissed Meek—and even took a jab at the Phillies.
As you’ll see in the video, Kendricks muses that the whole ordeal could be orchestrated to give the two rappers more publicity. But hey, at least it’s fun to watch.
The Internet has been going a bit nuts over this video of Eagles quarterback Tim Tebow getting some serious leg work in on a machine that seems to be half swing/half torture device. You can check out the video below. Just know: You will probably break into a sweat just watching him work so hard.
We doubt Chip Kelly will be writing up an Eagles-themed workout for you anytime soon (he’s a busy guy, after all), so the next best way to copy an Eagles player’s workout routine? Go to the Northern Liberties Pilates and yoga studio Ploome. Really!
From throwing snowballs at Santa to having a courtroom and jail installed under Veterans Stadium, Eagles fans have long brought passion to the world of sports — and occasional shame to the city they call home.
Now Sports Illustrated ranks them among their most hated people, places and things in the NFL, along with the most-hated team (the Patriots), head coach (Bill Belichick), player (Percy Harvin, by players, and Johnny Manziel, by fans), fan base (see below), announcer (“the one calling your game”), and other football-related categories.

Julie Johnston is a burgeoning star on the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, currently competing (and winning) in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Zach Ertz is an on-the-rise tight end for the Eagles, working hard to become the team’s most reliable pass catcher come the fall.
Zach went to Stanford, Julie to University of Santa Clara. The two met at a Stanford University baseball game a few years back, and now they’re dating, according to Ertz’s personal blog. Julie, at the time, was training for the U-20 Women’s World Cup, signifying to Zach that she was talented. Read more »
