We’re looking for anything (babies, basketball and even the MLS) to take our minds off the Eagles after their 22–17 loss to the Cleveland Browns yesterday.
The GIST: We’re looking for anything (babies, basketball and even the MLS) to take our minds off the Eagles after their 22–17 loss to the Cleveland Browns yesterday.
🏈Same sh!t, different day: It’s never good when the first score of a game is a pick-six off your QB. Unfortunately, that set the tone for the game as QB Carson Wentz threw another interception early in the second quarter. That brings his season total to 14, the most of any QB in the league. Wentz struggled yesterday, but it was not entirely his fault: he faced constant pressure, with the offensive line allowing four sacks. Ouch.
- Defensively, the Birds tired against the Browns’ relentless rushing offense, giving up 15 points in the second half.
- With all NFC East teams at three wins, and the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers up next, we’re definitely nervous about the Eagles’ playoff chances.
🏀Signed, sealed, delivered: After the glitz and the glam of the NBA Draft, the Sixers started free agency period with a bang, signing former LA Laker Dwight Howard to a one-year deal. We’re excited, even if the relationship started out on an awkward note.
- Then, yesterday afternoon, the Sixers traded Zhaire Smith to the Detroit Pistons for Tony Bradley, adding yet another big man to the roster. There are lots of free agents still on the market, and we’re excited to see what, if any, moves Philly will make.
