Sal Pal from ESPN will join us every Friday at 3:05 this football season to talk Eagles with us. Sal Pal covered last night's game at the Linc and began by saying that indeed, the Eagles do have a kicking problem. What can they do? Well, it's kind of late in the game to make any switches and the front office may just have to wait it out and hope Alex Henery catches fire. Sal Pal also said that the Eagles could be looking to move Mark Sanchez simply because his value wont get any higher as he wont be playing much in the regular season. Sal Pal also discusses the defense and where they stand now in camp with just one preseason game left.
Minnesota Timberwolves reporter for the Star Tribune called in to talk about the Thaddeus Young part of the Kevin Love, Andrew Wiggins trade. The Sixers netted Alexi Shved, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and a protected 2015 first round pick. Otherwise know as, not much. LRM is a mentor of sorts for Sixers center Joel Embiid and should serve in that role. Shved is a minor role player with an expiring contract that struggles to shoot the ball with any consistency.
