Giroux Out, Couturier In...

Giroux Out, Couturier In...

...of Chateau Briere.

The Briere household never appears to be a quiet place, what with Claude Giroux living there along with Danny's three sons last season, and 18-year-old Sean Couturier looking to get a room this year.

Giroux has moved up in the world, and has his own pad this season, but Couturier appears set to move in in the near future.

“Danny offered me to stay at his place and I’ll probably go there for
awhile,” said Couturier, who contributed to the Flyers’ 5-4 win over
Vancouver on Wednesday night by setting up Jakub Voracek’s second-period
goal for his first NHL point in his third game. “I’m told I can stay
there all year.”

The youngster's play has been pretty damn good so far this season. He found himself killing a number of penalties last night and notched his first point as a Flyer. Watching him play last night, I was reminding myself over and over in awe that the kid is only 18.

There's a bright right future for him in Philly.

Eagles fans, get Malcolm Jenkins that petition on Pete Morelli

Eagles fans, get Malcolm Jenkins that petition on Pete Morelli

The online petition to ban Pete Morelli from officiating Eagles games is rapidly gaining signatures.

Count Malcolm Jenkins for one.

"I would definitely sign that petition if it came across my desk," Jenkins said with a laugh to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark on Monday at the safety's Blitz, Bow Ties and Bourbon charity event.

The Eagles beat the Panthers, 28-23, last Thursday night despite a significant discrepancy in penalty yards. It was a game officiated by Morelli's crew — and you can see why that's notable by clicking right here.

"We felt like a lot of those were ticky-tack, or weren’t good calls," Jenkins said after the game. "For us, adversity is nothing new for us. We just kind of strap up and keep playing, and hunker down. We continue to play aggressively, that is the biggest thing. We don’t want that to take away our aggression, or our ability to make plays. So we just go to the next play."

What about the next signature? 

Eagles fans just need to get that petition to Jenkins' desk.
