Orlando Scandrick did some backpedaling Monday on FS1’s Undisputed

Oh boy, this guy again. 

Orlando Scandrick, the former Eagles cornerback,known best for skewering his former team earlier this season on FS1’s Undisputed after he was cut (see story), is back to talking about the Eagles again. 

Except this time, it looks like he has been humbled as he backpedaled a bit on his words from earlier this season. 

“That Eagles team, I have to take my hat off and tip it to them,” Scandrick said on Monday’s show. “The Cowboys and the Eagles are two organizations going in complete total opposite directions. I hope they get it figured out in Dallas, I'm a little concerned."

Though hilariously, Skip Bayless called him out for “turning the Eagles' season around," because “he re-lit a fire in it the Eagles locker room.” Not only this, he called him a “dry snitch." It’s pretty amazing to actually agree with Bayless on something, but here we are. 

Here’s the whole exchange from the show. 

Scandrick even had to pay up with a bet with Shannon Sharpe over who would win the NFC East. Spoiler alert: Scandrick picked the Cowboys, who very much did not win the division. Looks like he owed Sharpe two bottles of liquor, which he presented on set during the show. 

Scandrick, we would also like an apology to the city of Philadelphia, if we’re paying up for things right now. 

Ah, there’s nothing like the sweet, sweet sound of someone being wrong. Even sweeter that it happens to be a Cowboys supporter.

Carson Wentz reveals his baby’s gender in classic Carson Wentz style

Did we expect anything less from Carson Wentz?

If you haven’t been following our beloved quarterback’s personal life, Carson Wentz and his wife Madison announced on Thanksgiving morning that they are expecting their first child. 

On Tuesday, Wentz posted an Instagram video from their gender reveal party, where the couple found out the sex of their baby in the most Wentz way possible — by throwing a football full of colored powder into the air and skeet shooting it down to reveal the colored powder.

The football doesn’t lie. It’s a girl! 

Baby Girl Wentz is due this spring and we can’t wait. Let’s begin the name guessing now. 

Celtics troll Ben Simmons over 3-point shooting

Celtics troll Ben Simmons over 3-point shooting

Apparently, the Celtics team hasn’t heard that the whole “Ben Simmons doesn’t shoot threes” joke is kinda over. According to what they have nicknamed one of their rookies, it looks like Boston still has yet to find a new slant when it comes to trolling the Sixers. 

During postgame availability on Monday after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Celtics felt it was necessary to let the whole world know their special nickname for rookie Grant Williams. 

After the rookie struggled for the first quarter of the season to hit a three-pointer, his Celtics teammates gave him the nickname “Ben Simmons.”

First of all, how dare you. Our beloved point guard is a perfect 2-2 from beyond the three point line, in addition to overall stellar play the past week, including setting a new career-high of 34 points in 26 minutes on the floor. 

"Yeah, we were calling him Ben Simmons for the longest," said Jaylen Brown said. “"But he's knocking (threes) down and Ben's knocking them down, too. So shout out to both of those guys."
I suppose Brown makes it slightly better that he acknowledged Simmons’ shooting. Here’s the full quote in the video below. 

Whatever, find a new slant.

We’re looking forward to a matchup this week on Thursday with this added fuel to the fire. See ya then, Celtics.
