Thanks to Johny Sacks on this one: Sal Pal had some good words this morning on the radio about the Eagles. He took a look at the Eagles Patriots game last season where the birds got creamed and basically pointed out that the Pats switched over to a man to man coverage for that game and hit heavy with the blitz giving #5 very little time to make the plays. Sal belives that if the Pats try this in the Big game they will be in big trouble becasue you can't cover TO in a man to man D. He also belives Westbrook will bring a ton of talent to the table. I can't wait to see the clips of the media circus today.
LeBron James to the Sixers. It would take a miracle, right?
Sure, but one MVP is in on the push for the four-time MVP landing in Philly.
Enter Mike Trout.
The Angels' star outfielder, a two-time AL MVP and native of Millville, New Jersey, took to Twitter on Thursday to make a quick pitch for the King. Trout, a well-known fan of Philadelphia sports teams, responded to a 94WIP tweet about reporter Howard Eskin shooting down the LeBron James chatter.

First, it was Ben Simmons tweeting James. That's really how all the buzz started and now the idea is taking on a mind of its own. Clearly, it's being talked about. And what Sixers fan wouldn't want a player like James putting "The Process" into hyperdrive?
And hey, once James comes to Philly, he can then return the favor: bringing Trout to the Phillies.
We can dream, right?
