Eagles lose a terrible game

Sunday, October 24, 2010, 4:21 PM
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- This is a game the Eagles always seem to lose: on the road, against an AFC team with some credentials, just before the bye. It is something we have seen several times during Andy Reid's tenure. There is no explaining it, just like there is no explaining why their Septembers are... Read more

Phils even the series

Sunday, October 17, 2010, 11:22 PM
It’s a funny thing about the Phillies: they have lived in the October cauldron for 4 seasons now but they have usually managed to avoid the worst of the heat. The Phillies have front-run in almost every series in which they have played. The two series they lost -- that first one against Colorado... Read more

Sunday, October 17, 2010, 4:16 PM

Eagles survive 49ers

Sunday, October 10, 2010, 11:43 PM
SAN FRANCISCO -- The education of Kevin Kolb continues. It is what this season was supposed to be about, back when. We thought he would get the ball out quickly and accurately, but we did not know when he would learn to be a winner. That was going to be the process that consumed our attention. It... Read more

Where does Roy's no-no rank?

Thursday, October 7, 2010, 4:57 PM
Where does Roy Halladay's no-hitter rank in the pantheon -- a less-crowded pantheon than many, it must be acknowledged -- of Philadelphia greatest sports moments? Everybody's answer is different. Mine, not untypically, is a little bit complicated. We all have our own personal list -- Wilbert Mongomery's... Read more

About this blog
Rich Hofmann arrived at the Daily News in 1980 for a job whose status was officially designated as "full-time, temporary." A senior at Penn at the time, he was hired to fill in on the copy desk during a staff illness. The notion of him covering the Eagles or being a columnist did not exist in anyone's imagination. It was supposed to be six weeks and out, but he never left. It is only one of the reasons why so many people have concerns about him as a potential house guest. Rich has blogged the postseasons of the Flyers and Eagles. E-mail Rich at Reach Rich at
