Jon Dorenbos trade reaction: Eagles teammates show love, fans upset

Jon Dorenbos has completed his final act as a member of the Eagles. On Monday night, Dorenbos, who signed with the Eagles nearly 11 years ago and played in 162 games for the team, was traded to the New Orleans Saints for a seventh-round pick in 2019 (see story).

A fan favorite because of his personality, third-place finish on America’s Got Talent for his magic act, and his play on the field (a two-time Pro Bowler), there was a very strong reaction on social media to the move.

His now ex-teammates sent messages of support.

The fan reaction, however, was as negative as we have seen in recent memory for a trade. Here’s a sampling of how the fans are reacting to the move.

Dorenbos was actually the second long snapper traded today as the Colts traded for long snapper Thomas Hennessy. Howie Roseman must like the value of a draft pick for the 37-year-old Dorenbos, but he’ll hear from a lot of angry fans should the Eagles have any snapping issues this season.

Howard, Rollins, Utley, Manuel connected again in fun way

This was pretty darn cool.

The core members from the greatest run in Phillies franchise history were all connected in a way on Wednesday night.

Jimmy Rollins, who has been performing in-studio analysis for TBS during the MLB postseason, was joined by special guest Ryan Howard.

The ballgame they watched and analyzed? Game 4 of the Dodgers-Cubs NLCS, featuring old friend and teammate Chase Utley.

And then beloved former manager Charlie Manuel joined the fun. Let's just say he was a fan of the TBS crew.

Next season marks the 10-year anniversary of the 2008 world champion club.

Let's hope all four can reunite at Citizens Bank Park for the festivities.

That'll be special.

Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws

Oh man, oh man, oh man. It's finally here. The 2017-18 Sixers season is underway with our squad locked in a pretty tightly contested game down in Washington after a quarter of play.

We've already seen Joel Embiid attempt to destroy the world -- and get fouled.

But the most buzzed about moment from the first frame of the Sixers' young season was clearly when Markelle Fultz went to the foul line and... well, tossed up some ugly bricks.

This isn't the first time we've seen this but it is the first time non-preseason Sixers fans are seeing it. We wondered aloud if the Sixers were doing the right thing with Fulz prior to tonight's game. The lack of information on his injuries is troubling. So what's the deal with that form?

Well, Twitter had a field day with it.

Although Fultz's shoulder looked perfectly fine on this delicious block! He also had a couple of early buckets.

It's a long season, rook. Just please work on that free throw motion.
