By far the two most frequent Philly sports questions to be raised at Christmas Eve gatherings across the Delaware Valley last night while relatives threw back a few beverages were "so what's the deal with Andrew Bynum?" and "who do you like to replace Andy Reid?" Opinions on both situations vary greatly, but CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora threw another log on the fire regarding a potential Andy Reid replacement:
The Philadelphia Eagles
will consider Chip Kelly to replace Andy Reid, according to league
sources, and multiple executives with rival teams anticipate
Philadelphia making a heavy push to land the Oregon head coach.
A lot of fans immediately point to Kelly's unique and high-powered offensive scheme at Oregon not being suited to the skillset of likely Eagles starting quarterback in 2013, Nick Foles.
Kelly would likely not bring the same exact scheme to the NFL but the point is one worth debating.
Do you like the idea of Chip Kelly replacing Andy Reid in Philadelphia?
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Former University of Kansas basketball player Josh Jackson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation for backing into a car and driving away.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Jackson entered his plea Tuesday in Lawrence Municipal Court to striking an unattended vehicle. Two other charges, inattentive driving and improper backing, were dismissed.
Jackson, who is expected to be a top draft pick in next month's NBA draft, will be on probation for six months and must pay a $250 fine. If he violates his probation, Jackson would have to serve 30 days in jail.
Coach Bill Self suspended Jackson for the opening game of the Big 12 Tournament because of the incident.
The 6-foot-8 Jackson has now resolved two cases that had dogged him during his lone year at Kansas. He earlier reached a diversion agreement that requires him to attend anger management classes, write a letter of apology and refrain from using alcohol or recreational drugs for a year for his confrontation with a Jayhawks women's basketball player last year.
Jackson had pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of criminal property damage after he argued with McKenzie Calvert on Dec. 9 outside a bar in Lawrence. He signed the diversion agreement on April 26.
It appears the Big3 League media blitz is already underway.
Allen Iverson and his Killer 3s team doesn't start play until the end of June and doesn't roll through Philadelphia until the middle of July, but that hasn't stopped the Answer from doing a little promo for the gimicky league.
A.I. sat down with actor and general hoops junkie Michael Rapaport for Fox Sports 1 for a segment that will air next month but they shared a teaser online.
In it, the topic of trash talking comes up. Iverson says he wasn't much of a talker himself but witnessed plenty from the likes of Michael Jordan who used intimidation to get to Aaron McKie.
