Carson Wentz gets emotional while honoring Landon Solberg, who lost life to cancer

Carson Wentz came to the podium on Wednesday afternoon wearing a T-shirt that read "Landon's Light" on it and went on to explain the significance of the shirt and the life that inspired it.

"For those that don't know Landon [Solberg], he actually threw out the first pitch at the [Carson Wentz] Charity Softball game. He lost his life to cancer yesterday. Trying not to get emotional, but a good kid like that who was able to go through our AO1 Foundation's program, we got to know him really well and his family. To see his fight and his faith through his fight, his faith in Jesus, really inspired me," Wentz said.

"My prayers have been with his family. I know Landon's up there celebrating with Jesus. So that's something we can celebrate."

Wentz also posted a video and moving message to his social media accounts:

We are so thankful to have known this special young man and will always cherish the memories we have been able to make with him. His confident hope, unwavering faith and unquenchable joy has pointed so many to Jesus. He is the true definition of a conqueror: in the darkest of moments, he kept his focus fixed on the light — JESUS.⁣

Our hearts ache for the Solberg family and all those who had the privilege of knowing Landon. Let us cling to the same HOPE Landon held so tightly to - the hope of Jesus!⁣

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
