Philadelphia, Pa. (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...

Extra Points: Race-based criticism of Kelly is off the mark

By The Sports Network, 1 month 4 weeks ago

By The Sports Network, 2 months 4 days ago
(SportsNetwork.com) - Let's just say the quarterback position has been a problem in Nashville since the late Steve McNair left for Baltimore in 2006. It's not like the Tennessee Titans haven't tried to fix things, drafting Vince Young at No. 3 overall in 2006 and Jake Locker at No. 8 in 2011, but nothing was worked.
