(SportsNetwork.com) - The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference and that, perhaps more than anything else, explains Marcus Smith's reality in Philadelphia. After spending two days at the Eagles OTAs, you can't help but get the feeling that the team's 2014 first-round pick was used as a pawn by Chip Kelly in his power struggle with ex-general manager Howie Roseman...
