Hayes: Pederson should bench McLeod, Ertz for soft play

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 07:21:29 GMT2016-12-06T07:21:29Z

LITTLE ELSE turns the stomach like watching football players quit. Their job is brutal; their nature, brutish. Yet they choose this life and they are paid like princes to perform, and they never turn down their paychecks. It is their job to fight and flail and finish.



McLane: Wentz's woes tough to fix during season

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 07:19:56 GMT2016-12-06T07:19:56Z

The Eagles, like many NFL teams, identified a few mechanical flaws in Carson Wentz's delivery during their predraft evaluations. They were considered minor. Almost every quarterback who has made the jump from the collegiate ranks to the pros has had his throwing motion adjusted.



Smallwood: Sixers need threat of relegation like another Harris team

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 04:30:13 GMT2016-12-06T04:30:13Z

'SOMETIMES you have to look at the level I am working at. We are not a dominant club, so results are going to have ups and downs. The inconsistencies are why some players don't play at top clubs.



Bowen: Eagles' Wentz playing like a rookie

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 02:09:04 GMT2016-12-06T02:09:04Z

DOUG PEDERSON says he isn't worried about Carson Wentz, but that doesn't mean we can't be. Sunday's game was alarming, and the short, uncomfortable postgame media session with the rookie quarterback didn't provide any reassurances.



Sielski: How is Pederson being judged?

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 00:47:45 GMT2016-12-06T00:47:45Z

Once a week, Doug Pederson joins Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman for a meeting of the power people atop the Eagles' organization - even if, relatively speaking within the franchise's hierarchy, Pederson has a center cubicle without a view. These meetings,



Murphy: Wentz's game reminds us he's a rookie

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 23:40:09 GMT2016-12-05T23:40:09Z

CINCINNATI - The thought is one that all rookie quarterbacks force upon their fan bases. Usually, it occurs well before Week 13. You want the upside and excitement of a high-reward investment? This comes with it. More often than not, it comes well before now. The first hint of a downside, the crystallization of risk. On a gloomy day in a gloomy city, the Eagles confronted their own mortality. His name was Carson Wentz, and he was really, really bad.



Bowen: Eagles claim they haven't quit, but it looks that way

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:02:54 GMT2016-12-05T14:02:54Z

CINCINNATI - Several Eagles declared their team never quit Sunday, in a 32-14 loss to a Cincinnati Bengals group that set a season scoring high, and led 29-0 in the third quarter.



Ford: Loss to Bengals casts shadow on seasons to come

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:57:52 GMT2016-12-05T12:57:52Z

CINCINNATI - The Eagles didn't just lose a game or whatever hope lingered for their season on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. They lost, or should have, the organization's belief that better days are right around the corner.



Brookover: Wentz wagon's wheels fall off

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:48:37 GMT2016-12-05T12:48:37Z

CINCINNATI - Carson Wentz's first pass Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium was rejected at the line of scrimmage. His second pass, one play later, slipped through the hands of linebacker Vincent Rey, a rare drop that actually benefited the Eagles, but also a clear sign of what was about to unfold for a quarterback and team that have helplessly watched a once promising season spiral in the wrong direction.



McLane: Pederson must prove he's up to task

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 08:52:55 GMT2016-12-05T08:52:55Z

CINCINNATI - Doug Pederson needed an unusually long amount of time before he took the podium. He is typically on the later side when it comes to postgame news conferences, but his extended absence seemed abnormal, except for maybe the fact that the Eagles had just delivered the worst performance of Pederson's first season as coach.



Domo: Eagles' 'D' even makes Dalton look good

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 08:52:27 GMT2016-12-05T08:52:27Z

CINCINNATI - This wasn't catch-me-if-you-can Russell Wilson, throwing bubble screens and quick hitches and eluding pass rushers until his receivers got open.



Cooney: Answers to some pressing Sixers questions

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 02:30:20 GMT2016-12-05T02:30:20Z

THE SIXERS extended their losing streak to six games over the weekend. Joel Embiid impressed once again on Friday, and tickled the imagination of what could be when on the court with Jahlil Okafor, but the team gave a horrible effort in a 105-88 loss to the Orlando Magic, a team that was in the middle of a five-game road trip and had lost the night before in Memphis.



Pompey: Jerryd Bayless should consider surgery now

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 01:37:04 GMT2016-12-05T01:37:04Z

Jerryd Bayless is adamant that season-ending surgery will be his last option. For now, the 76ers point guard is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Denver Nuggets at the Wells Fargo Center. Bayless has already missed four straight games and 17 of the Sixers' 20 contests with a torn ligament in his left wrist.



Jensen: Owls make an emphatic statement

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:35:31 GMT2016-12-04T22:35:31Z

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Scenes from a championship: A Temple defensive back cruised around the checkerboard end zone, arms out as if he was flying. A receiver went over to some defensive linemen and pointed to his gloved hand, to his ring finger. A bunch of Owls players jumped up to the stands, to sit in front as Temple's band played Temple's fight song. Players grabbed souvenir signs, carried them around the place, high-fiving Temple fans who strung out along the whole sideline.
