Eytan Shander: Doc Rivers, Daryl Morey showing how to take Sixers from rebuild to contenders

If you can’t beat ‘em, you lose as many games as possible, draft a couple of young stars, and once things start coming together you upgrade the staff. It’s the NBA, it’s what they do. It’s far from any indictment on the coach charged with tanking and then rebuilding, rather showing how vital this upgrade process is and why it truly works.

Eytan Shander: Don't blame Roseman for this Wentz debacle, blame Lurie

Can we please stop blaming Howie Roseman for all of this? It’s not his fault. He doesn’t write the checks.

Eytan Shander: Just get the Carson Wentz trade over with so we can take a season off

Just end this damn thing already. Stop the car, let me out. I’ll wait for you outside, just tell me how the movie ends.

Eytan Shander: Joel Embiid isn't just the NBA MVP, he's the most important athlete in Philadelphia

Embiid established something else in this early season of domination in the NBA; he’s now the most important athlete in the entire city of Philadelphia. Protect this man at all costs.

Eytan Shander: No matter who they hire, the next Eagles coach is being set up to fail

Does it even matter? I don’t even care anymore at this point. Just get it over with and put me out of my misery.

Eytan Shander: Doug Pederson was Eagles' latest scapegoat, but he won't be the last

Doug Pederson deserved better. We all did. This is just another chapter in the book on subterfuge, masterfully crafted by Jeff Lurie and executed through Howie Roseman. The same one that could serve as a textbook for most universities.

Eytan Shander: Eagles DC Jim Schwartz saw the writing on the wall

Jim Schwartz turned out to be the smartest person in the room. I don’t know if you had him in your pool — not many did to win that award. The decision by the now former DC to take at least a year off should come as little surprise, especially to anyone paying attention to how this team handles “departures” of any sort.

Eytan Shander: Wentz should start Eagles' finale for same reason Hurts replaced him

This season continues to amaze me. Every single week. It’s like the Philadelphia Eagles are tanking – but not on the field, rather with their front office. How is this even possible? How can people be so tone deaf to the very things they’ve put in motion?

Eytan Shander: 'If we are having this conversation in the first place, Wentz has already lost'

You don’t come back from multiple quarterbacks successfully taking over your job, and you don’t get over damaging reports coming from inside the building each year. You won’t win back countless fans who decided to listen to ignorance and move on from your multiple accomplishments. Please, for your own sake, truly push this team to find a great fit for a fresh start. You deserve it.
