Your Tuesday Morning Roundup

Another day, more discouraging news for Sixers fans.

Brett Brown said at Monday’s practice that the team plans to limit Joel Embiid to just 20 minutes or less to start the season:

“I don’t really know if there’s a solid number. I can tell if you were to choose a number, it’s somewhere in the teens.”

“There will be some minutes restrictions, but it’s also a judgment of how is the game being played, not just looking at rote, rigid number,” Brown said.

Embiid, who apparently found out about this minute restriction from the media, reacted to the news:

It’s doubtful he’ll be able to sway the team’s decision, but he did look good in practice while FOX 29’s Gary Cobb was recording a report:

The Sixers open up the season against the Wizards TOMORROW NIGHT! Our Sixers reporter, Kevin Kinkead, knows the games now count and is not playing around. All business:

The Roundup:

Sticking with the Sixers, there’s a silver lining to Markelle Fultz coming off the bench.

Start your day off with Doug Pederson’s locker room speech from after the Carolina win. I’m starting to really like his motivational words:

Over 40,000 signatures are on a petition to not have Pete Morelli officiate another Eagles game.

The Eagles overcame Morelli’s whistle last week and are now the odds-on favorite to win the NFC:

However, the betting folks aren’t as confident in the Eagles against the Redskins as they previously were:

Still, this is a very winnable game for the Eagles, who are actually a very good team, and it’s okay if you want to apologize to Doug Pederson now.

Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz should get a lot of credit, too, as the Eagles defense is one of the best in the league:

You see the Birds are now first in that YPG number and first in attempts per game, because they essentially shut down your running game and force you to throw the ball.

They lead the league in making opponents one-dimensional.

They’re only 9th in points allowed per game (20.3), 19th in total yards allowed per game (339.2), and 29th in pass yards allowed per game (273.5). That’s a natural tilt created by a dominant run defense that often plays with a lead. Cam Newton threw the ball a career-high 52 times on Thursday night. Carson Palmer threw it 44 times last week and Eli Manning threw it 47 times earlier this year.

The fans are fully on the Wentz Wagon after this great start:

The Yankees beat the Astros 8-1 last night to make it 2-1 in the ALCS. The NLCS continues tonight with the Dodgers leading the Cubs two games to none.

The latest Crossing Broadcast is now out and is a MUST listen, as always.

Aaron Rodgers had surgery on his collarbone yesterday. The Packers aren’t closing the door on a return this season, but that appears to be doubtful. Bad for the Pack, good for the Eagles.

The Delaware 87ers have new threads:

In non-sports news…

Bowe Bergdahl pled guilty to charges of desertion.

The U.S. struck ISIS yesterday.

And be sure to look both ways and up at the sky before your cross the street today:

“North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador warned Monday that the situation on the Korean peninsula “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”

  1. Can’t Wait!!

    Just a couple of days and we can start the process of watching limited minutes for a “special player”. Watch a number one pick sit the bench and another first rounder turn the ball over and commit offensive fouls as he loses his dribble trying to get to the basket.

    Love this process. In a few more years, we will be close!! I may not know hoops, but I am a hipster, so I love Sam!!

      1. Maybe there is a new definition for ironic. I don’t really think it matters what the color of the players are. I think the fake love for basketball is more about supporting Sam, than actually liking the game.

        Being racist or basing your allegiance on race isn’t ironic, it’s just stupid. It’s even more stupid than supporting the process because of Sam.

  2. Just booked my flight for Blizzcon… Overwatch, Heroes, and StarCraft World finals… sign me up.

    Oh and I will be at the Sixers home opener on Friday… 50 games the Sixers will win.
