Watch: Malcolm Jenkins' ride along with the Philly Police Department

Watch: Malcolm Jenkins' ride along with the Philly Police Department

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins made news last season for his protests during the National Anthem in a show of solidarity with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. They were just two NFL players among many trying to stand up for social injustice in African American communities.

But those who follow the Eagles closely know that Jenkins is about more than simply protesting. He wants to be active in finding a solution to many of the problems facing our communities today.

At the Super Bowl he was presented the Byron "Whizzer" White award for his charitable efforts. And today, thanks to a feature done by Vice Sports, we got a look at a ride along Jenkins did in North Philadelphia with members of the Philly Police Department.

He also sat down with Police Commissioner Richard Ross and active members of local community organizations to try and find common ground.

"I think both sides are frustrated," Jenkins said. "The minute that we can both take ownership in the situation. Both be honest about our own feelings, our own shortcomings, our own victories, that's when we can get through stuff."

"You can be pro-police and pro-justice at the same time. You can stand for people that are being wronged without disrespecting police officers or without disrespecting law enforcement."

Local law enforcement knows there is work to be done on their side as well.

"We want our communities to respect us but we have to do the same for them," Commissioner Ross said.

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 next season for the festivities.

That'll be special.

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

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.
