Philly Police Solve Mystery of Super Bowl XXXIX

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 »

Eagles Win Super Bowl (in Alternate Dystopian Future)

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 »

LeSean McCoy, Stephen A. Smith, Tra Thomas and Brandon Boykin (outer photos, clockwise from top left) have all ascribed racial motivations to Chip Kelly’s (center) personnel decisions. Photos | Jeff Fusco except for Tra Thomas | Howard Smith, USA Today Sports

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.

And his response this week to the Riley issue was an insult to every reasonably minded fan in the Delaware Valley. Read more »

Eagles Linebacker Mychal Kendricks Says Drake May Have Trouble Next Time He’s in Philly

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.


Aw! Eagle Zach Ertz Is Dating U.S. World Cup Soccer Star Julie Johnston
