It doesn’t matter if you’re a franchise quarterback, one of the best running backs in the NFL, an All-Pro center, or a draft bust, everybody can be moved. Now it sounds like another...

The Marcus Smith answer in Philly is simple— convert him to an H-back on offense…

This is the article I should have saved for April Fool’s Day— but with “the future of Marcus Smith” hysteria so rampant in the Delaware Valley right now, it’s time to administer the vaccine. Move Marcus to the other side of the ball. Smith is a quarterback trapped in the mind of a defensive end. This is biological fact! Thus, it is decreed that Marcus Smith is the perfect...

Coming of age moment for Eagles’ Marcus Smith against G-Men…

Well, the Eagles have officially ruled out ILB Mychal Kendricks for Sunday night’s game against the Giants.
