Chip Kelly's plan like Belichick's, sans Brady

philly.com — Trying to figure out Chip Kelly's plan for the Eagles is like trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle whose 1,000 pieces have been strewn and hidden about the house. You have to know where to search just to find the pieces themselves, and it will take a while before you have any idea what the picture is supposed to look like.

Why a loss in OKC makes sense for the Sixers

philly.com — Posted: Wednesday, March 4, 2015, 3:01 AM For any NBA team that won't make the playoffs, and even for some teams that will, an 82-game regular season can be a slog, and the 76ers' regular season - by design, remember - has been sloggier than most.

Eagles' many moves are strictly business decisions

philly.com — People say they understand that sports is a business. Most people don't really mean it. Most people want to buy the jerseys and watch the highlights and feel a kinship with the athletes and coaches and personalities, and they want every once in a while to

Can Embiid live up to the Sixers' hype?

philly.com — Posted: Monday, March 2, 2015, 3:01 AM Until Sam Hinkie decided to trade Michael Carter-Williams and K.J.

Dunphy, Temple live on the bubble

philly.com — Posted: Thursday, February 26, 2015, 1:08 AM Over his 26 years as a head college basketball coach, first at Penn, then at Temple, Fran Dunphy has guided 15 teams to the NCAA tournament, and some of those journeys were easier than others.

Villanova dominating the new Big East

philly.com — They had just finished introducing Darrun Hilliard and JayVaugh Pinkston on senior night at Villanova, and the noise inside the Pavilion had risen to a level that made having a casual conversation almost impossible.
