Maybes - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
Let’s say the Eagles went out and signed Darrelle Revis and DeMarcus Ware. Guess what? They would have been maybes as well. All roster moves involve projection. All of them. Rookies, free agents, trades. Adding stars, ascending players, fading players, or just solid veterans. All moves involve projection. After the 2011 free agency period, how many people thought Evan Mathis was the prize signing and not Nnamdi? How many people thought Juqua Parker would have more sacks as an Eagle than the man who suggest the Eagles sign him, Jevon Kearse?

Eagles' Kelly breaking the mold, but not the rules - Mark Saltveit,
Chip Kelly is using innovative technology – including radio-controlled cars on the practice field – to get the most out of pre-season workouts, despite strict rules limiting them. This has led to media speculation over whether his efforts violate the spirit or letter of regulations banning the involvement of most coaches in early (Phase 1) conditioning workouts.

The Evolution Of ‘Murderleg’ - Sheil Kapadia, Birds 24/7
Carey Spear hadn’t heard the nickname until last week. "From what I was told, it was written in a blog somewhere," old Murderleg told Birds 24/7 Wednesday. "And it was pretty humorous hearing that and seeing how the city just kind of rallied around that nickname a little bit. So I never heard it at Vanderbilt."

Eagles show off latest upgrades at the Linc - Derrick Gunn, CSN Philly
Lincoln Financial Field is no longer just a football stadium. It has evolved into a sports entertainment venue. Last year, prior to the start of the Eagles' regular season, phase one of a stadium facelift was completed -- a $35 million project that entailed a new wi-fi system, concession stand upgrades, pro shop expansions, historical imagery, and touchdown club and suite revitalization. Now, the Linc is in the $90 million phase two portion of the project, which started immediately after the Eagles' season ended in January. The long harsh winter slightly interrupted work days but didn’t push workers too far off course.

Jordan Matthews, The 1.01 And Structural Bias - Davis Mattek, RotoViz
Jordan Matthews is the most productive WR that the SEC has ever seen. In the toughest football conference in the country, Matthews played for 4 years and set conference records for catches and for receiving yards, while catching passes from FOURTEEN different quarterbacks. Matthews destroyed the combine and landed in what is, ostensibly, one of the best scenarios for any offensive player in the entire league. We’ve seen some course correction on our communities evaluation, with Matthews getting selected somewhere in the top half of the 1st round of rookie drafts, but it is my contention that you can’t afford to pass him up with the 1.01.

For Huff, Kelly More Than Head Coach - Dave Spadaro,
Josh Huff is the first member of his family to attend college and to graduate. He's in the NFL. He's on the rise. And he knows that having Chip Kelly in his life has made a world of difference ...

Watch Jon Stewart rail on all Philadelphia holds dear: cheesesteaks, Rocky, the Phillie Phanatic - The700Level
"A great New York restaurant is being slandered by some jagoff from Philadelphia," Jon Stewart said last night on The Daily Show before he launched into a vicious tirade against the loving city we live in.

The actual worst places to host a Super Bowl - Ryan Nanni, SB Nation NFL
You are already familiar with the pattern. A Super Bowl is awarded to some city other than San Diego, New Orleans, or Miami, and the harrumphs of the multitudes echo across the nation. The weather stinks! They don't have enough hotels! I don't know which restaurants to expense! Don't you remember how we nearly died in Jacksonville?!?! Let's try to have a little perspective here, people. Minneapolis isn't the worst place to hold the Super Bowl. In fact, it's not even on the top ten.
