Who Has the Most Talented Team in What Sport?!

Who Has the Most Talented Team in What Sport?!

Would it surprise you to learn it might be the Eagles?

Over the weekend, NFL Total Access posed the question, 'Which is the most-talented team in the league?' Dream team label aside, former journeyman fullback Heath Evans claims it's still the Birds. How could that be, you ask?

Let me give you the list of game-changing players, offense starting: Vick, McCoy, Jackson, Maclin, Celek, Jason Peters -- yes, injured, but listen. Defense: Nnamdi, Babin, Cole, Ryans -- now DeMeco Ryans, we can't talk about how huge of an addition that is -- Cullen Jenkins. There's just not many rosters where you can put the list together like this and say, 'These are players who strike fear in opposing players' hearts.'

The most-talented team is a label many observers thought the Eagles carried into last season, and we all saw how that worked out. They are returning much of the same core, only with some notable additions, so if you felt that way a year ago, it's still plausible today. Former Patriots and Browns outside linebacker Willie McGinnest adds later that it's not all about talent though, and in doing so, maybe touches on part of the problem last season.

You can assemble a whole bunch of talent, we've seen it over the years, but unless the team plays together -- they can gel, they can co-exist amongst each other -- you have to have the right fit and the right personalities or you could put a great amount of talent together, and it will never work.

The Eagles, of course, signed a ton of free agents as training camp began last summer, many of whom did more harm than good. The theme for this offseason was building around the pieces that were already in place.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, their was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Cowboys and Eagles will face off on Sunday Night Football, where we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
