Him?

Him?

I can't help but take note of the recent insanity being espoused by a large segment of local sports radio, in which certain talk-show hosts on both stations are clamoring that the Eagles should seriously consider trying to make a trade for disgruntled Denver quarterback Jay Cutler, or at least entertaining this notion as not an altogether bad one. (As expected, there is no shortage of callers to parrot these feelings, either.)

Quoth theKrisheim:

just think what would happen if mcnabb did go to denver and won a super bowl with dawkins and buck

spend a minute with that thought...all the sadists would have a field day

Amen. Meanwhile, re: Cutler -- am I missing something here? Just what in hell is so special
about this guy that people would be willing to jettison McNabb and
several draft picks to get him? Last time I checked, Cutler has never
made the playoffs while leading the Broncos (hell, I don't think he's had a
winning season as a starter). And that's while playing in the AFC West, for God's sake! Yes, I have seen his numbers over the last two seasons, and they are quite impressive, without question... but then so were Drew Brees', and neither quarterback took a postseason snap in either 2007 or 2008.

Meanwhile, Donovan McNabb's overall performance has not slid that far down the mountain that I'd consider rolling the dice with someone who in my opinion has yet to prove he's capable of leading a team to the promised land. Well, has McNabb done it, you might ask? Of course not. But he's gotten damned close several times. And his numbers over the last two seasons are as good as any he's had in his career, not counting the gaudy statistics he put up in 2004.

Furthermore, not to sound too insensitive here but Cutler is diabetic, and who
really knows what kind of career length such a medical condition could dictate.

Furtherfurthermore, are we to expect the Eagles front office to
sacrifice selecting the very linemen Cutler would need for
protection? Those comparisons Cutler made between himself and John Elway would bear little substance if he finds himself staring at the clouds five or more times per game.

And furtherfurtherfurthermore, Cutler is by most accounts a whiny, paranoid bitch who has done everything he can to turn
what was once a small, internal rift into a mighty canyon. Yes please, let's bring that sort of personality
on board immediately, where he will be warmly received by both fans and the media. I see nothing that can go wrong with this. SuperBowl XLIV, here we come!

Best of NHL: Trocheck's last-second goal lifts Panthers past Blues

Best of NHL: Trocheck's last-second goal lifts Panthers past Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Vincent Trocheck scored with just under 5 seconds remaining to lift the Florida Panthers to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.

Jonathan Marchessault also scored and James Reimer stopped 26 shots to help the Panthers complete a 5-0 road trip -- their first perfect trip of at least that many games in franchise history.

Reimer has won five straight decisions and has not lost in regulation since Jan. 7 against Boston, going 6-0-1 since.

The Panthers moved into a tie with Boston for third place in the Atlantic Division, but have the edge because they have a game in hand on the Bruins.

Kyle Brodziak, playing for the second time after missing 10 games due to a broken foot, scored for the Blues and Jake Allen finished with 31 saves. St. Louis lost its second straight since winning six in a row (see full recap).

Coyotes use three-goal 1st period to beat Ducks
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Radim Vrbata capped Arizona's three-goal first period and the Coyotes held on for 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

Christian Dvorak and Jakob Chychrun also scored for Arizona, and starting goalie Mike Smith had 27 saves before leaving about 4 1/2 minutes into the third period after a collision in the net. Marek Langhamer helped kill a power play after being pressed into action for his NHL debut and stopped six of the seven shots he faced.

The Coyotes have won four of their last six.

Langhamer gave up Ryan Getzlaf's second goal of the night with 26.8 seconds to play, but thwarted two quality shots in the final seconds.

Jonathan Bernier gave up three goals on six shots in the first period for the Ducks. John Gibson came on to start the second and stopped all 14 shots he faced (see full recap).

Joel Embiid admits to reaggravating foot injury after 2014 surgery, almost quitting

Joel Embiid admits to reaggravating foot injury after 2014 surgery, almost quitting

Joel Embiid trusts the Process, more so than anyone — the process of patience.

After sitting out two whole seasons because of foot injuries, Embiid learned the importance of patience the hard way.

Appearing on NBA TV's Open Court, Joel Embiid opened up about how he reaggravated the fracture in his foot that cost him the 2015-16 season.

"I didn't know how to deal with patience," Embiid said on the roundtable discussion. "I just wanted to do stuff, that's why I think I needed a second surgery, because after my first one, I just wanted to play basketball again. I just wanted to be on the court and I pushed through what I wasn't supposed to.

"At one point I thought about quitting. I just wanted to come back home and just forget everything."

Embiid goes on to discuss the Sixers' turnaround this season and his mindset during his recovery. Watch the full clip below. 

Embiid also said he models his game after Hakeem Olajuwon.
