Extra Points: Marcus Smith, from pawn to player?

By The Sports Network, 1 year 9 months ago
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: Foles brings a different mentality to Rams

By The Sports Network, 1 year 9 months ago
(SportsNetwork.com) - Philadelphia can have the arm talent, the St. Louis Rams want the intangibles for a change. Legendary NFL personnel executive Gil Brandt has always believed in Sam Bradford. Back in 2010, the long-time Cowboys front-office man, who now works for NFL Media, called Bradford's pro day one of the best he's ever seen by a quarterback. "Sam Bradford's workout Monday...

Extra Points: Bradford takes first step with Eagles

By The Sports Network, 1 year 10 months ago
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Take your pick ... Sam Bradford is either a legitimate franchise quarterback derailed by some terrible luck or the last of the bonus-baby draft busts, a player destined to go down as a disappointment. Judging by Chip Kelly's actions since acquiring Bradford from the St. Louis Rams for Nick Foles and a second-round pick, even the Eagles coach doesn't...

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

By The Sports Network, 1 year 10 months ago
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. Chip Kelly is a polarizing presence in professional football with a style that is often described as innovative by supporters and overrated by critics. The camp you decide to place your own lawn chair is inconsequential, but the one thing we should all be able to agree upon is that there is absolutely...

LeSean McCoy on Chip Kelly: He Got Rid of the 'Good Black Players'

By Jasmine Watkins, 1 year 10 months ago
LeSean McCoy will no longer be playing the state of Pennsylvania, and that's a hard concept to grasp for some. The Bills running back is speaking out on his former coach Chip Kelly and the way things went down in Philadelphia. From the beginning it seems McCoy and Kelly never had a good relationship. "The relationship was never really great," McCoy told ESPN. "...

Extra Points: Desperate Titans ignore the suitors

By The Sports Network, 1 year 11 months 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. So maybe the third time will be the charm. Of all the places Marcus...

Philadelphia Eagles 2015 Draft Preview

By The Sports Network, 1 year 11 months ago
(SportsNetwork.com) - Chip Kelly seems to be collecting quarterbacks but the apple of his eye isn't in Philadelphia, at least not yet. When using a traditional NFL mindset it seems less than likely that Kelly has the ammunition to get up from No. 20 overall to reunite with quarterback Marcus Mariota, who Kelly recruited to the University of Oregon. Until Sam Bradford signs an extension in...

Extra Points: Tebow signing exposes Kelly

By The Sports Network, 1 year 11 months ago
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - From a pure football sense, Tim Tebow's arrival in Philadelphia means virtually nothing. The best-case scenario is that everyone's favorite mechanical mess at the quarterback position turns into a third-string option and a valuable specialist in a system that should play to his perceived strengths. At worst, it's a misguided distraction serving as a...
