Phil Sheridan: 76ers' Andrew Bynum is cause for concern

Sick of Sheridan's ability to state an ultra-obvious possible negative outcome, couched in hyperbole, while failing to even look at the other side of the story. Everyone knows Bynum has a massive expiring contract. If he can't play, we don't sign him, we have tons of cash, go after someone else. We're infinitely better off npw than we were 12 months ago. End of story.
No excuses for Vick in 2012

Ummm...the Atl game injury was him trying to run in a TD through two colliding defenders. All he had to do was slide at the 2 and let Shady do the rest, as every good QB would do in that situation. The Giants injury was him holding onto the ball too long and then Canty nailed him very late (and we got no flag). As for the Cardinals injury, I remember there were some questions as to when it actually occurred. The team called a press conference to say it was early in the game, but the players said it was much later (before they knew what the company line was). But IF it happened when the team said it did, then, yes, that one was due to poor protection. So of the 3 injuries, 2 of them were Vick's fault, one the O-line. I don't know what you're analyzing...

Take a look a look at the 49ers Red Zone TD % for some insight into why Akers has so many FGs this season. He is having a great season, undoubtedly, but the numbers can be misleading.

Funny that someone named "Judge" doesn't know what that symbol is. § is the character representing the word "Section", and is used (probably exclusively) in the legal/governmental world to refer to parts of statutes and regulations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_sign

Shawn Andrews was not a bad pick 2 Pro-bowls and gave B-West the best season of his career in '07. They had no idea he'd turn into a pathetic, gutless clown. Brining in his brother was the real mistake.

First off, Mudd is nowhere near an "average" O-line coach. His lines kept Petyon Manning's jersey clean almost every game. I'd argue 2 things won them that superbowl- Manning and his O-line. So if Mudd is "average", what have we been working with all this time? Second, EVERY team goes into any season with at least one big question mark- sometimes you have to make some adjustments and try out different guys in different special teams situations as seasons progress. its the nature of the game. Mac and Jax are penciled in now, but believe me the 4-5 guys are getting LOTS of work returning punts as we speak. We'll find a serviceable guy, if not a home run hitter, and protect our underpaid asset. Finally, the rest of the league has NO IDEA what to expect from Castillo, and thats a huge advantage that obviously played into the decision to make him D-Co. McDermott was just same system, different guy with much, much poorer in game adjustments and teams caught on real quick that he was just a less talented JJ clone and made us (and him) look like amateurs. I criticize Andy Reid as much as the next guy (draft pics, game management, play calling ,etc), but this season is different. Open your mind and just watch it play out.

Other team's "cast offs" can turn into gold for a different team with a different system. Watch Brandon Merriweather go to another pro bowl after being "cast off" by the Pats. Remember Brandob Lloyd last year- cast off as a huge bum by 3 different teams, comes in and puts up numbers with the right QB and the right system. Get a grip, people.

Guy was solid guard for our O-line coach during their super-bowl win with the Colts. He's a salary cap casualty and part of the line play overhaul in Indy after Mudd left. He's one of Mudd's prototypical guys, a class act, and a great addition to the team. Negadelphia creeps into every transaction.
Further, expecting Watkins to be a dominant guard right out of the gate given his relative lack of experience and lost teachings due to the lockout is a pipe dream. Everyone should reserve their disappointment until late season at the EARLIEST. People need to get real here.

Is it unfathomable to you that a player could improve at age 27? It happens all the time.

We could probably pick up a pretty good veteran right-handed bad from a team looking to dump a contract- either a 3b (to replace Valdez or Martinez) who will platoon with Polly until he is 100% (if he gets there) or an versatile OF to Platoon with Raul and Mayberry/Brown. We don't need a potential/former star to fill what we need in our offense, because we need to ride out Dom and Mayberry and see if they're the future. Get Heath Bell, then cherry pick a RH grinder who hits lefties for a late-inning replacement and the occasional start. That should be the plan.

These people are crazy man. There seems to be a contingent of a few hundred depressed sociopaths who come on here and spew negativity in every article. We have the best record in baseball and 3 of the best 7-8 pitchers in all of baseball, yet a guy in that top 8 isn't good enough for them. I'll never understand how a city so accustomed to losing can hate on a guy who has been here for our ascension to dominance and has played a huge part in it. Its just ridiculous.

Questioning Cole's resolve and competitive spirit is a pretty popular activity around here. The guy has done nothing but pitch well and be a friggin' hero to this city in our first championship win in 25 years. He's one of the best pitchers in baseball right now and is young enough to keep doing it for 10 years. He's probably the most valuable player on the team. Get over yourselves everyone.

Howard produces. Period. Anyone who can't see that because of RACE is blind and stupid. We want him to be more than he is because we believe he can have better at bats than he does the majority of the time. He could strike out less. He could see more pitches. He could stop taking monster cuts in close games. But he doesn't and he hasn't.
We either accept that he does things a different way than we want him to or we don't. But, the fact remains that the guy produces runs better than just about anyone in the league. Anyone who doesn't want him as a lifetime Phillie doesn't understand baseball.

Who has depth at center in the NBA? Like 3 teams.
On another note: If they traded Speights for Battier I would have lost my mind.
How Vick's trainer helped rejuvenate his career

I believe in this guy. He's not going anywhere.
1) Offense is young, and arguably the most talented in the league. Why would you leave the place where you career as a QB really took off after 1 actual season?
2) Andy Reid believed in him when no one else would- people don't just brush that off so easily, especially after what he went through.
3) Gotta love all the respectful, insightful fans who lack even the slightest shred of ignorant Bigotry.... /sarcasm
Seriously, people....where do you live that its o.k. to judge people based on race in a public forum? Please tell me so I can avoid it at all costs.
Wed., 12/22/10 - 23:41 PM
Yeah we left the whole "eye for an eye" code of law behind in the dark ages....You know, when most of us would be living to the age of 30 doing nothing but back breaking labor for no other reason than to pay the rent. You know what else they did in the dark ages? Fought dogs. Brutally.
So you detest something Vick has done as being barbaric...and suggest treating him with the same barbaric behavior as punishment. Sounds like someone needs to blow out the candle in their mud hut and do some thinking tonight.

Please edit the rush offense grade. The whole world rips on this team for not running enough, and McCoy has one of the best rushing performances we've seen (in terms of its effect on the game) in years, and you give it a B-?

This was big. Points: 1) Dimitri Patterson earned a nice new contract with his play over the past couple of weeks. 2) Maclin needs to make that catch every time. There is no excuse for that. 3) Chaney needs to be educated on how to cover the middle of the field...quick (if Bradley is going to be out next week- or longer). 4) Surprisingly, I'm really loving the play calling. 5) If we don't start seeing flags fly for some of these hits on Vick, there is a legit conspiracy- is this some undisclosed stipulation of his criminal sentence or something? Seriously, its getting absurd.

Trotter? They got rid of him and he blew out his knee and was never the same player. Owens? Is that serious? Romanowski? Maybe they didn't like his attitude and propensity to rape young girls. Dawkins and Reggie White are the only ones that really come to mind from earlier in the thread. I've also stumbled upon an unmentioned one: Derrek Burgess. Think of all the popular players we've let go at the right time: Lito Sheppard, Carlos Emmons, Brian Westbrook, Bobby Taylor, Deuce Staley, Darwin Walker...and the list goes on for guys who were under performing and didn't really ever get it back on other teams.

Brain and Dawkins.
