"Smile" was a mysterious album produced and recorded by Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys long ago that never got distributed by Capitol Records. It allegedly was the Beach Boys' greatest musical achievement. For some reason it got hung up in contract disputes and red tape. Brian Wilson's declining health at the time did not help.
"Smile" was also once a great defensive end and speed rusher who played for Michigan and briefly for the Philadelphia Eagles. He got derailed by some weight issues and also extended rehab time away from the game due to microfracture surgery.
But unlike the Beach Boys', Brandon Graham's "Smile" is back in distribution.
Brandon Graham can smile again...drafted #1 by the Eagles in 2010 (10th overall) out of Michigan, 6-2, 265, it looked like his career was headed nowhere coming out of a disastrous year in 2011.
Graham came through wit...

For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Howie Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season’s end. I also hear a lot of people seemingly angry at Jeff Lurie for not coming out and addressing the media about the state of the franchise (or firing Reid before the end of the year).
Just this morning, these two subjects were...

Now if that's not a helmet to helmet penalty I don't know what is. This went down in the Thursday night football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals. It was ugly last night and Eagles’ Brandon Graham and Bengals’ Andre Smith made it even uglier. Never seen anything like this before.

Apparently we missed a heluva game while we were getting drunk at the company Christmas party last night. The Bengals outscored the Eagles 24-0 in the second half en route to a 34-13 road victory.
The goat? Eagles running back Bryce Brown who had a solid night, going for 34 yards on 16 carries. Oh, and a pretty big fumble which got returned for a TD.
Eagles fans were not happy. ...
The Philadelphia Eagles, who were riding a temporary high after a 23-21 win over Tampa Bay last week, quickly crashed landed on the cold, hard ground in Lincoln Financial Field Thursday night, losing to the Cincinnati Bengals 34-13. Turnovers were once again the story of the night, and the Philadelphia Eagles had five of them. On top of that, they had a punt blocked. The rest is...

Today in his next-day press conference, Eagles Coach For Too Many Days That End In Y Andy Reid pointed out how turnovers killed his team in last night's game against Cincy, how you just can't have that, and how he takes complete responsibility for the team doing this, as if it were a new problem, rather than something that's been systemic. And...
Last week, we showed you an amazing catch from Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant but this catch from Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson might be the best of the year.
It happened in the third quarter of the Bills loss to the Seahawks as Johnson caught a pass that appeared to be going over his head with an incredible one-handed snag:

Judge…audience…people of the jury. What we have here today in front of us is a case so vile…so heinous…so uncomfortably dramatized by the writer that we must bring it to light so that others might find a way to ease this poor man’s suffering.
