Social media pick wrong eatery to put in doghouse Not on the menu. Owner Danny Cheng said he’s never served cat or dog meat. And the accusations are giving him a headache. George Bengal still won’t reveal the name of the West Philadelphia eatery that butchered cats and dogs and sold their meat. But here’s a hint: It’s not Danny’s Wok. After a Metro story told of a restaurant getting shut down after being caught serving dog and cat meat, neighborhood gossip queens decided Danny’s was the restaurant in question and spread their assumptions throughout Facebook. “Every day I get at least 100 calls,” said Danny Cheng, owner of the Chinese restaurant on the 5000 block of Baltimore Avenue that’s known for its wings. “I get headache!” Bengal, director of law enforcement for the Pennsylvania SPCA, said he won’t name the restaurant because it “re-opened under a new name, and a new owner, so I don’t know that I want to do that and open up another can of worms.” The original restaurant was shut down by the health department 11 years ago. It’s no longer in operation. And the SPCA

Glad

I never Ate from there,and I will never eat from any other Chinese restaurant!!” •

Cheng responded: “I don’t have a basement!”

Mason did not return a Facebook message requesting comment.

Twitter threats. Teen gets four years for witness intimidation High school student Nasheen Anderson, 17, was sentenced to four years in juvenile lockup Monday for posting information on Twitter that included victim photos and statements made to detectives. Anderson, of East Germantown, wrote “EXPOSE ALL RATS”

said it has not issued a cruelty to animals citation to a restaurant since. Cheng said people call from New York, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.. “I don’t know why,” he said. “A week ago, people called and asked, ‘Are you still open?’” He said: “Yeah, what do you want?” And then they hung up. The next day, the same person called back: “You’re not shut down? Tell me why.” Cheng told the caller it’s all “nonsense.” “OK,” the caller said. “You send me the cat and dog meal.” In Pennsylvania, it is illegal for restaurants to sell and serve cat or dog meat. However, it is legal for a person to kill a dog or cat and eat it, as long as it is all done humanely and in the privacy of their homes. A bill making its way through the state legislature would make it illegal to breed and kill dogs or cats just to eat their meat. Cheng said he’s never served that kind of meat and never will. He’s owned the restaurant for 18 years. He emigrated from China and opened Danny’s Wok in 1995. “I have no problem [for 18 years],” he said. “It gives me a headache. Usually it’s very busy. Right now, [we] have no people coming for the lunch and the dinner.”

SLS International, a project planned for Broad and Spruce streets, could be a “catalyst” for future development in south Center City, said architect Gene Kohn, of Kohn Pedersen Fox. But Mayor Michael Nutter urged Kohn, developer Carl Dranoff and SBE hotels magnate Sam Nazarian recognize the history of their project’s proposed location — 301-311 S. Broad St., the longtime home of Philadelphia In-

ternational Records, as well as former Mayor F. Wilson Goode’s offices. Dranoff said the $200 million project was named “International” in a nod to Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff’s label, famous for the “Philadelphia sound.” “I think it helps keep the memory of what happened here, and gives it more of an attraction,” Gamble said of keeping the name. Passersby on the street had a variety of reactions to the look and location of the project. “They’re going to put that here? Wow,” said Benjamin St. Fort, 18, after seeing a rendering. “I guess it’s good, if they think it will help us.”

John Kerry plays down tensions with China Maritime disputes. U.S. secretary of state is in Southeast Asia to talk with regional allies. Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday played down tension with China over the East China Sea, saying U.S. efforts to strengthen maritime security in Southeast Asia were part of a normal process to help allies defend themselves better. Kerry said maritime disputes between countries should be resolved peacefully through arbitration and the U.S. would speak out when a country, such as China, took unilateral action that raised the potential for conflict.

A day after the United States gave $32.5 million to stiffen maritime security in Southeast Asia, the bulk of it for Vietnam, Kerry said the United States would provide $40 million to the Philippines to build its capacity to police the South China Sea. “We don’t view the situation as one of rising tensions and we don’t want rising tensions,” Kerry told a news conference with his Philippine counterpart Albert del Rosario. “What we are involved in are normal processes by which we work with other countries in order to raise their maritime protection capacity.” He said the U.S. had not taken a position on any claims by countries in disputed seas, but did not agree with the way China has responded in the dispute with Japan.

The need is much greater this holiday For the rest of this year, every dollar donated to the Philabundance virtual food drive, a donor — who has not been named — will match that amount up to $100,000. Needless to say, Bill Clark, the nonprofit’s executive director, hopes people are extra giving this holiday season. But he also hopes the giving doesn’t stop once the ball drops. Food pantries throughout Philadel-

phia are shrinking, and the number of hungry families is growing. Most of that is due to severe Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program cuts that went into effect on Nov. 1. Clark said with the reduction in food stamps, families are running out of food around the third week of the month — and

that meant Thanksgiving and next week, during Christmas week. How does Philabundance prepare for the influx of hungry children and their families not only during the holidays but in the wake of cuts? “You really don’t,� Clark said. “You try the best you can. We’re talking about a wave of need that’s being generated in terms of congressional inaction, that’s just going to knock us off of our feet.�

Clark is also referring to unemployment compensation and how very soon, nearly 87,000 people will be cut off. And even though Philabundance is collecting a record amount of food, the pressure is on. There are still ways to donate this holiday season. The easiest way is to write a check. “That’s always important,� Clark said. A donor can even specify where he or she wants his or her

So, we use a huge amount of volunteers to sort through that.� You might be surprised

The parents have to feed them and that puts a huge amount of pressure on the household.� With recent SNAP and upcoming benefit cuts, the need will be that much greater, Clark added.

What if I told you that Shia LaBeouf had actually written and directed a smart, sensitive short film? Kind of changes the way you see the loud, erratic star, doesn’t it? OK, now what if I told you that pretty much the entire film is a rip-off of an indie graphic novel? Aaaaand the world we know snaps back into place. LaBeouf’s short film, “HowardCantour. com,� about a film critic, premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival to critical praise. Yesterday it was released online, where fans immediately noticed its similarities to “Justin M. Damiano,� a comic by indie artist Daniel Clowes. And not just small, coincidental similarities, either. “Every word from the four-page

LaBeouf has since apologized (ish) on Twitter. “Copying isn’t particularly creative work. Being inspired by someone else’s idea to produce something new and different is creative work,� he wrote. How could things get worse? What if I told you this apology is strikingly similar to one written by a Yahoo!

Just before our chat with “Saving Mr. Banks� star Emma Thompson, the British actress had wowed a press conference audience with a rather athletic entrance, vaulting herself high over the table to get to her seat. The display was a far cry from P.L. Travers, her terse onscreen alter ego in “Banks.� But then, there’s a lot they don’t have in common.

I found it a bit distracting in this ďŹ lm that you’re far too young for the part. Well, I’m not far too young. I’m 54 and she was 66 at the time. I also think I look suitably and properly old. Travers herself liked to divide a woman’s life into three main parts: nymph, mother and crone. So I said, “Why don’t we just play her on that cusp between mother and

crone?â€? There’s still a kind of an erotic possibility for her, but you can see it’s never going to happen because she’s too closed up. That’s more interesting because you can see the possibility, and you’re not playing a crotchety old lady who’s more easy — because of the way our world works — to dismiss. You’ve mentioned a problem with ďŹ nding heroic historical female

characters to look to. There’s two questions: What is heroism? Is it action? Does it have to be action-based? As I started to [work] in cinema I realized that I would identify with Marlon Brando because he was the one getting to do things and that women seemed to be the ones saying, “No, don’t do that brave thing, stay here with me.� I remain frustrated with that because it’s still a very

common trope. I turned down role after role in my 30s which were ... the sort of marshmallow-y stuff that wasn’t even allowed to be inhabited in any real way. But the problem with female heroism is not one that’s easy to answer because if the actions are the same as the male hero, then what do you do? You stick a gun in their hands. What’s the point of that? It’s the same old, same old. It’s a real conundrum.

The “Anchorman” team hits the 1980s in their second outing. / PARAMOUNT PICTURES Review

Sequel. It’s a pretty crazy ‘Anchorman 2’

Director: Adam McKay

There’s a marked difference between the Will Ferrell in for-hire movies, like “Blades of Glory” and “The Campaign,” and the Will Ferrell who writes with director Adam McKay. “Anchorman,” from 2004, was the first of these, and one can detect in it, ‘”Talladega Nights,” “Step Brothers” and “The Other Guys” a next-level creativity that comes with working with someone even more in love the absurd and surreal. “Anchorman” was an odd movie, but “Anchor-

man 2” goes even further. Now somewhere in the early 1980s, Ferrell’s wellcoifed, haughty but incompetent Ron Burgundy has transplanted to New York City. He loses his job and his wife (Christina Applegate), but suddenly finds himself working with a new channel launching a dangerous, crazy-sounding concept called “24-hour news.” Despite their love for them, topical jokes have never been Ferrell and McKay’s true strengths. Nonsense and nonsequiturs are. They lead a

Chaos reigns in ‘American Hustle’ True tall tale. With his latest, director David O. Russell tries to bring his love of disorder to the keyed-up “Goodfellas” genre. A decade ago, David O. Russell was a “difficult” filmmaker, prone to eccentric projects (“I Heart Huckabees”) and scandalous on-set outbursts. He’s pulled an impressive 180, albeit by churning out films that wouldn’t seem to interest such an iconoclast: an inspirational sports saga (“The Fighter”) and a feel-good dramedy about mental illness (“Silver Linings Playbook”). True, he’s forced those projects to fit his own disorder-loving brand. But they still smack of compromise. Without assuming too

much, it’s likely he identifies a lot with the characters of “American Hustle,” about the larger-than-life Abscam operation of the ’70s and ’80s. Christian Bale and Amy Adams play con artists blackmailed by the feds — including Bradley Cooper’s overzealous agent — into entrapping a connected but decent mayor (Jeremy Renner). But each character is forced to become someone he or she is not. The narration track brims over with statements about having to adapt and reinvent and generReview ‘American Hustle’ Director: David O. Russell Stars: Christian Bale, Amy Adams Rating: R

ally mask one’s true self to get by. Is Russell trying to say something? He remains a desperate artist in a business that turns on you with the first hint of failure. This is his “Goodfellas” movie, filled with whiplash camera moves and pop songs. In truth, he meets the genre halfway. Russell is not Martin Scorsese. He doesn’t do “cool shots.” His passion is for observing actors, giving them the space to create chaos that his frames struggle to contain. There’s a push-pull between its director’s style and the material’s own requisite style. Keyed-up camera pans become Russell’s own brand of long takes, where actors step over each other’s lines, shouting and screaming to be heard. Only one person could have made this.

“Breaking Bad”

TV. Metro staffers pick the best shows of this past year.

“Orange Is the New Black” “House of Cards” “Arrested Development”

“This is rather pathetic, but I still have a soft spot in my heart for ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ You may as well be asking your mother what is hip.”

Tie: “Game of Thrones” and “Homeland”

DOROTHY ROBINSON

Seriously, “Game of Thrones” totally went there.

22

/ HELEN SLOAN

“I kind of feel like Christina’s take-down of Meredith, re: ‘I am moving past you, and that’s OK,’ was one of the single best scenes I’ve seen on TV this season. Really an apt and concise dialogueopener in the ongoing ‘Can women have it all, and what does that even mean?’ discourse.” T. MICHELLE MURPHY “I’m really glad we didn’t neglect ‘Arrested Development.’ I can’t tell you how many people told me they turned it off after the fourth episode — RIGHT before the first Tobias story, which took it from passable to mindmeltingly brilliant. Even more so than the original run, it requires you get into its singular groove. Then it’s hard to quit.” MATT PRIGGE

“‘Arrested Development’ was so bad. It was like going back to a high school reunion and being feverish to see an old crush only to find him weird and off-key. The original chemistry you longed for so much just died with time.” DR “I just wanna go on the record saying that ‘Orange Is the New Black’ is kinda lame. There’s too much cuteness and it’s also super hokey, but people don’t really realize that because it’s based in a prison and there are so many ‘tough’ women, but when she left the phone call with her fiance to chase the chicken is when I left the show.” PAT HEALY “You clearly missed the episode where the crazy meth head walks into an abortion clinic with a shotgun and becomes a poster child for the Evangelistic church. Yeah, it might be hokey at times (it’s TV!) but it’s dark, too, and the storyline is refreshing compared to the usual female-centric, girlin-the-big-city or girl-raisesbaby-on-her-own sitcom. #NodisrespecttoGilmoreGirls/TheMindyProject” TINA CHADHA

Staff save

“SAVE for ‘Scandal’! You have not seen passion until you’ve watched Olivia and the president get down in the Oval Office!” TC

Spacey stars in “House of Cards.” / MELINDA SUE GORDON

“Sad to see ‘Breaking Bad’ come to an end, but at least it went out on a high note. HA! High note! Get it? See what I did there? Pun on HIGH? Nevermind.” MEREDITH ENGEL

“I didn’t watch ‘Breaking Bad’ because it was too dark and made me sad about the world, which made it perfect for me to catch this last season when I wasn’t emotionally involved in the least. This is all to say that ‘Breaking Bad’ can even draw in a person who can’t stand violence or bleak worldviews that had no idea who Heisenberg was.” JULIA FURLAN

“I’m just impressed you all can afford cable.” DR

I apologize on behalf of my colleagues, who put “Game of Thrones” in fifth and last spot — and at a tie no less! (Full disclosure: I have never seen an episode of “Homeland.” I know, I know. *slaps own wrist.* I’m one of those people who can’t start watching a show once every single other person I’ve ever known is already multiple seasons deep. It’s a real problem, I’m working on it. It’s the same reason I didn’t watch “Breaking Bad.” *slaps wrist twice*) Anyway, to make an outdated Kanye joke, Imma let the rest of the staff finish, but “Game of Thrones” had the best season ever. What other show has the balls to ruthlessly — and awesomely — kill off so many main characters like it ain’t no thing? “GoT” reigns supreme. See what I did there?

‘House of Cards’

Other than HBO (and FX and A&E and — damn, seems like television is killing huh?) Netflix is putting out some of the most exciting and game-changing programs of the moment. “House of Cards” is utterly captivating — and this comes from a person that, full disclosure, doesn’t even vote. *applies ice to swollen wrist* But this show has it all: intrigue, sex, violence, scandal and Kevin Spacey.

Nathan Fielder wants to fix your business. / DANNY FELD teen moms, people who have sex with inanimate objects — I watch it all. But “Project Runway” (technically a reality competition, which is higherbrow) is a quality show. The contestants are actually talented (for the most part), the challenges are exciting and there’s still enough catfighting to sate my appetite for low-brow reality crap. Plus, it’s got the best panel of famous people ever (no offense to “The Voice”). (Just kidding, total offense meant.)

I don’t care what anybody says, Lena Dunham is a genius, and she’s likeable despite airing her flaws (both emotional and physical) for the whole world. Sure, season two didn’t quite meet the very

high bar the first set — it was a little depressing — but as a 20-something girl myself (OK FINE, 29, IT STILL COUNTS) I can totally relate to almost everything that is said and done on this show. Don’t judge me.

‘Nathan for You’

Nathan Fielder is one of the funniest dudes on TV. (Although I’ll add a shout-out to Billy Eichner of “Billy on the Street.” ) Comedy Central’s docu-reality comedy series features Fielder using his “business background” to help failing companies. Spoiler alert: He is not helpful.

Beyond the yellow Theater. Walking Fish is performing three lesser-known tales from “Wizard of Oz” author L. Frank Baum. “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” is such an iconic children’s story that it has long eclipsed the rest of author L. Frank Baum’s extensive body of work. One year after Dorothy first followed the yellow brick road, for instance, Baum published “American Fairy Tales,” a collection of 12 stories meant as a homegrown complement to familiar European tales. “I think he may have been competing with the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales, though these stories are not nearly as gruesome,” says Michelle Pauls, who is co-directing a production of three of Baum’s stories for Walking Fish

Theatre’s annual holiday offering. “They’re kind of sweet and old-fashioned.” The stories were adapted by Stan Heleva, Pauls’ co-artistic director of Walking Fish’s resident B. Someday Productions and co-director of the show. The directors discovered Baum’s stories after another of his books, “The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus,” served as the inspiration for last year’s far less family-friendly Christmas show, “The Early Adventures of Santa Claus – A Yuletide Burlesque.” The tales seemed a If you go

good fit for the theater’s intimate space and for the interactivity that they like to integrate into their family shows, which includes joining in a dance sequence, singing along with seasonal favorites and becoming the victims of (temporary) larceny during “The Box of Robbers.” The stories chosen for the production also include “The Queen of Quok” and “The Girl Who Owned a Bear” — little-known, certainly, but not wholly unfamiliar for anyone who’s read or seen the film based on Baum’s best-known work. “In two of the stories, there are girl protagonists who are left alone by their families,” Pauls says. “They have very rich imaginations like Dorothy. You’re left wondering at the end if everything really happened or if they just dreamed it all up.”

South Philly Head here for blinged out stoops and windows, especially on 13th Street between Morris and Tasker and around 9th and Wharton.

This upscale neighborhood is heavy on highrise doorman buildings and ritzy stores, meaning most of the decorations you’ll see have that generic, vaguely corporate feel. But stroll through Rittenhouse Square itself — or heat up with a hot toddy at one of the restaurants lining it — and just try not to feel warm and cozy gazing at that tall tree strung with white lights.

For the party-planner, fun with trays doesn’t just stop at serving food and drinks. “I love displaying various sized candles on one and placing it on a coee table,â€? says Weiss. “I also love to buy little trays to put in the guest bathroom with perfumes, towels and a small votive candle.â€? With large trays, she gets a little more creative. “I love to place glass apothecary jars [on a tray] to make a mini candy shop, and I often use a large tray to make a hot fudge sundae bar for the family.â€?

“A live plant is something that people can enjoy year-round, but many people don’t naturally have a green thumb,â€? says Seo, who clearly knows our friends. For plants that require little to no upkeep, he suggests owering succulents, colorful cacti, mini olive trees and even potted evergreens. “These can be left outside during the winter months and planted when spring comes around,â€? he says.

Alice Smith doesn’t ‘speak makeup’ Beauty. The soul singer loves her products — she just doesn’t always like wearing them. She tells us about her sacred picks, “Ramona Quimby” hair and her trick for never waking up with dry skin. Alice Smith’s deep lyrical voice is so soothing it could almost put you to sleep. Luckily, the Grammy-nominee won’t take offense if you do. Why? Because she believes that sleep is nature’s way of helping you look pretty and freshfaced. “Eye-bags are a sign that you either need to take a break or go to sleep. So If I’m working late one night, I just make sure I drink a lot of water and go straight to bed. That’s it,” she explains from her home in Brooklyn. And for

those rare moments when shut-eye isn’t enough? “In that case I’ll use a little bit of MAC Studio Finish Concealer,” she adds.

Her ‘Ramona Quimby’ hair

“I used to dye my hair in college, and it was, like, orange! I don’t think it was meant to be that color. But I liked it. I had a fringe and a short bob, which made me look like Ramona Quimby!”

Letting her skin make its own oil: “I wash my face with Sothys Cleansing Cream twice a day, and in the morning I follow up with their Hydradvance Light Hydrating Cream. I don’t put anything on at night because that’s when your skin is busy working and making oil. You just have to make sure you use really good stuff. So far, I’ve never woken up with dry skin. I also see my facialist, Mamie McDonald, about once every six weeks and she just does what she needs to do. I always leave with a really clean face!”

Her beauty icons: “I love Sade. She’s so beautiful.”

ALICE SMITH IS A BROWS, LASHES AND LIPS KINDA GIRL. ALEX ELENA

Not needing foundation – ever: “I love makeup, but I don’t speak makeup. I don’t wear a lot of it because it’s not good for your complexion. But if I feel a little washed out, I’ll do my eyebrows up a little and put some mascara on. But I never wear founda-

I always carry a tin of Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with me.”

Her new album ‘She’ and making it through the music industry unscathed:

“I’ve always had a lot of support. My family and my friends have always been there for me. I have a 3-year-old daughter now, and she’s made me reevaluate and reexamine who I am and who I need to be. For me, it’s about what kind of person I’m trying to encourage her to be — how to be successful, how to care for herself. And because the only way to teach things is to show, I need to be able to show her how to do all that.”

Hip bridge on ball

1 2 3

Lying on your back, place your feet up on a medicine ball. If you don’t have a medicine ball, use an ottoman or a couch (we used a desk chair!). With your hands by your side, using your core, thrust your hips up.

Your winter workout We don’t blame you for wanting to curl up under the covers, but not so fast: You can still do a solid workout in the comfort of your living room — no machines necessary. Gunnar Peterson, who has whipped the Kardashians and J.Lo into shape, taught us this indoor workout. Do 12-20 reps of each move depending on your fitness level, unless otherwise noted. MEREDITH

4 5 6 Do 50-100 skips with a jump rope

Hinge crunches with feet on ball with roll-in

With your feet on the medicine ball, perform a crunch, and while you curl in, pull the ball in with your feet.

Lying on your back holding dumbbells overhead, bend at the elbow and lower the dumbbells so they touch the floor vertically. Press them back up. In the up position, the dumbbells should be horizontal.

Side plank rotations and side hip bridge

Try playing up the footwork if you get bored easily. Remember that jumping high isn’t the goal — you just need to jump enough to clear the rope.

Resistance band pull-down, rear lunges

Dumbbell triceps extension

Banded 4x4s

Tie the resistance band around your calves. Enter into a squat. Take 10 lateral steps to the left, then do 10 more to the right. Take 10 steps forward with the bands on, and 10 back.

Hold a resistance band behind your head so that you feel tension. Step backward and perform a lunge, pulling the band. Repeat on the other leg.

EAT, DRINK AND BE HEALTHY The holidays are a time to burn the candle at both ends, but you have to be careful not to flame out. The pressure and stress of the season can easily weaken or overwhelm your immune system. The usual seasonal increase in colds and flu at this time of year makes it even more important to do everything you can to avoid illness when you can least afford to be down and out.

Eating Make sure you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat too much or too little. Overindulging will not only put on a few extra holiday pounds, but it makes you more likely to develop esophageal reflux. This overnight trickle of stomach acid bubbling up into the back of your throat while lying flat in bed can not only cause heartburn but may also

lead to a sore throat or cough. This nuisance is often mistaken for an upper respiratory infection (common cold), and it may increase your odds of getting a sinus infection or bronchitis. Eating too little may make you more likely to get intoxicated if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drinking, as alcohol is absorbed much more quickly from an empty stomach.

erationâ&#x20AC;? should be your motto. Try to drink a glass of water with each alcoholic beverage. No matter your sex, weight or drink, if you have two or more drinks in under two hours, you will likely be impaired. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink and drive, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your friends do so. Work out a designated driver in advance, take a taxi or public transportation and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to ask if you can sleep over at your friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s if driving under the influence is your only other option.

The 2013-14 ďŹ&#x201A;u season has oďŹ&#x192;cially arrived, and there is a variety of cold viruses around causing sore throats, nasal congestion and coughs. Shaking hands, kissing under the mistletoe (or anywhere else) and traveling on a plane can all spread illness rapidly. Get a ďŹ&#x201A;u shot, wash your hands frequently, keep them away from your face and blow kisses where you can. Lastly, if you happen to hook up, use condoms â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no one wants an STD for Christmas.

At long last, have you lost your sense of decency, Metro? Re: ‘Top pop culture moments of 2013’ (Metro, Dec. 16) I get that your entertainment pages aim for a funny, snarky tone, but I thought some of the commentators for your “Top pop culture moments in 2013” piece crossed the line from clever to offensive regarding the deaths of Online

Paul Walker and Cory Monteith. Rachel Vigoda’s pithy “Did anyone actually care about Paul Walker?” ignores both his fans and the daughter he left behind, while Tina Chadha’s “the world lost a really pretty face” is obnoxiously shallow. Meredith Engel praises Cory Monteith’s “sweet voice” and “piercing eyes” but then references Lea Michele “beard[ing]” for him, a bizarre and ill-conceived attempt at gay rumormongering that flies in the face of “Glee”’s anti-bullying, pro-LGBT stance.

Eagles, Bears both in ‘just win’ mode NFL. Philly and Chicago control their own fates with 10 NFC teams still in the mix. Football fans with Math anxiety don’t entirely appreciate this time of year. There are currently endless scenarios for the 19 NFL teams still jockeying for a playoff spot or a particular seed. The Eagles’ situation is a somewhat complicated one in that Sunday night’s game against the Bears could prove to be somewhat meaningless for them if Dallas beats the Redskins earlier in the afternoon. A Cowboys win would force a winner-take-all showdown against the Eagles in Week 17 no matter what happens Sunday night. A Cowboys loss in D.C. would give the Eagles a chance to wrap up the division with a win over Chicago and make Week 17 meaningless. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has already nixed the idea of resting his starters should Dallas win. “We have to get back on a winning track,” Kelly said this week. The Bears, mean-

McCoy gave bad info on flight home

“We can’t feel overconfident. ... I’m glad we lost. We needed to get knocked off so we can re-evaluate what we’ve got going on here.” Eagles cornerback Cary Williams

while, will be looking to punish Kelly’s squad on Sunday night regardless. Chicago would clinch the NFC North with a win over the Eagles and losses by the Packers and Lions earlier in the day. The Bears play the Packers in Week 17. As it stands right now, the Eagles are the No. 3 seed in the NFC and would host San Francisco

in the wild card round. The Bears are the No. 4 seed and would host the Panthers in early January. But the chances of things staying pat are slim to none, and slim just got a migraine by looking at all the possible scenarios.

MATT BURKE

matthew.burke@metro.us

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy sidestepped the truth on the flight home from Minnesota Sunday the same way he typically sidesteps outside linebackers. McCoy told WIP radio that he was the only one with Internet access on the Eagles’ plane early Sunday night and that he decided to relay some bad information, regarding the PackersCowboys game, to his teammates as a rib. “I said, ‘Yeah [Tony] Romo threw a 37-yard pass, touchdown.’ They’re like, ‘Really?!’ I’m like ‘Nah, he threw a pick actually,” McCoy said. “Because nobody knew except for me, so whatever I said they had to believe.” Knowledge was most certainly power for McCoy as the Eagles back said that the Cowboys brutal loss lifted Philadelphia’s morale. “It definitely did [help our spirits],” McCoy told WIP.

Sixers coming NBA. Philadelphia has allowed 21 3-pointers in back-to-back games as they struggle to stop teams. Head coach Brett Brown didn’t exactly throw up his hands out of frustration, but his agitation was apparent after watching the 76ers allow 130 points for the second straight game Monday at Brooklyn. “We can’t guard anybody,” Brown said. “We can’t guard our own man. It starts with individual breakdowns and we were just trying to put out fires all behind it.” The game Monday was the latest loss during a seven-game losing streak, one that saw the 76ers reach new depths of defensive ineptitude for the second time in three days. After allowing 139 points on 21 3-pointers against Portland, the 76ers again allowed 21 3-pointers and 130 points to the Nets. The manner in which they did that particularly peeved Brown, who had an up close seat to Joe Johnson’s 29-point display on eight 3-pointers in the third quarter alone. Some of them were contested, but the 76ers were mostly helpless to get a hand in his face as Johnson caught and shot each of the 3-pointers. Perhaps the most embarrassing defensive effort came when Johnson rebounded a missed shot, went coast-to-coast and easily knocked down a 3-pointer. Another low moment occurred when a defender tried to contest a corner 3-pointer but overran Johnson and wound up out of bounds. That lack of defense marked the first time since April 1994 that the 76ers allowed 130 points in consecutive games. That was when Fred Carter was coaching and the starting lineup was populated by Tim Perry and Clarence Weatherspoon. “Right now we’re just scrambling all over the place and guys are getting wide-open looks,”

The Sixers are giving up historically bad numbers over their seven-game losing streak. / GETTY IMAGES By the numbers

The Sixers rank 30th — last — in the league in points per game allowed at 111.2 per game.

7.3

The Sixers’ points per game allowed total is 7.3 points more than the 29th-ranked team, the Lakers. The gap from seventh to 29th is just 6.5 points per game.

38.3

Opponents’ 3-point shooting percentage against the Sixers is 38.3 percent, 27th in the NBA.

8.5

The Sixers are eighth in the NBA in steals per game, largely due to Michael Carter-Williams.

forward Thaddeus Young said. Open looks are how a defense allows 42 3-pointers in two games, gives up at least 120 points in six games, at least 130 in three games and at least 15 3-pointers in an NBArecord six games. That’s all part of the defensive problem that has seen them allow a league-high 273 3-pointers. Besides a talent gap, that lack of defense is the reason for the seven-game losing streak and a stretch of 19 losses in 23 games after the 76ers surprised the league with a 3-0 start. After Monday’s loss, the 76ers have allowed over 100 points in 23 games and have the second-worst defensive rating at 109.2 points per 100 possessions. Through Monday, Philadelphia has allowed a league-worst 1,078 baskets and, not surprisingly, a leaguehigh 712 of those have occurred with an assist. “Everyone is just moving the ball against us good and we kind of get broken down into a scramble and when we scramble it’s not a good thing,” guard James Anderson said. Anderson and the 76ers found themselves in scramble mode during a 42-point third quarter. That marked the fourth time an opponent dropped 40 in a quarter and

49ers (10-4)

Chiefs (11-3)

Eagles (8-6)

The Seahawks are two wins away from posting the best record in franchise history. They have at least three players making strong cases for overall league MVP â&#x20AC;&#x201D; cornerback Richard Sherman, safety Earl Thomas and running back Marshawn Lynch (did you see that touchdown against the Giants?) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and they possess that rare blend of conďŹ dence and swagger. The only real question left, can they win a Super Bowl played outdoors in frigid New Jersey?

Well, this has to suck for Jim Harbaugh, right? The 49ers, barring a collapse by the Seahawks, will probably be the No. 6 seed and a slate of road playoďŹ&#x20AC; games.

We got a good chuckle over watching Jamaal Charles shred the Raiders for ďŹ ve touchdowns, as he dashed the fantasy football dreams of one of our loyal readers.

Chip Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst game of the season, from the bad play-calling to the decision to go for a fourth down inside his own 30-yard line. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t college, coach.

Jay Cutler got the win, but somehow we would feel a lot more comfortable with Josh McCown under center â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and something tells me Bears fans agree.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said it before and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying it again: Can the NFL ďŹ gure out a way to get three teams in from the NFC West? This team is fun to watch.

Philip Rivers has been just as good as Peyton Manning this year. Dead serious. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on pace to shatter career highs in yards and completions.

Ravens (8-6)

Lions (7-7)

New Orleans has bounced in and out of the Top 5, rising as high as No. 2. Still, they are 3-4 away from home and must win in Carolina.

Cincinnati woke up in an old school house of horrors, only Pittsburgh isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Freddy Krueger anymore. The Bengals blew an opportunity.

Keep an eye on Joe Flaccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ankle. Is there any chance Baltimore does not make the postseason? Only if Flacco is seriously hurt.

When Calvin Johnson starts dropping passes on Monday Night Football, maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not your year. Get the resume ready, Jim Schwartz.

Colts (9-5)

Dolphins (8-6)

Last week was the type of trap game Cam Newton probably loses in previous seasons. Not anymore. This Carolina team can make a title run.

Ahh yes, Houston, the solution for all that ails you. Perhaps Indy can build oďŹ&#x20AC; that productive ďŹ rst half and wake up a once-proliďŹ c oďŹ&#x20AC;ense.

Can we consider Joe Philbin for Coach of the Year? He kept the team aďŹ&#x201A;oat after Hazing Gate. Of course, Hazing Gate mightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been his fault.

Nerlens Noel: I may not be done for year NBA. The Sixers rookie went a little off script in telling the media he may return from ACL surgery this year. Nerlens Noel apparently hasn’t been studying his tanking handbook. In an interview with SiriusXM Radio, the Sixers rookie said he may not be out for the season after all. “There’s a possibility,” Noel told the Sirius XM NBA station when asked if there was a chance he’d return sometime during the 2013-14 season. Head coach Brett Brown said Noel was un-

likely to play this season on Oct. 21 as he rehabs from a torn ACL suffered in February while playing for Kentucky. He was

drafted on June 27, as the No. 6 overall pick and acquired by the 76ers with them fully aware he’d be out for at least a significant chunk of the season. Noel himself has been very quiet, not speaking with the media since the October announcement he’s out for the year, prior to the Sirius XM interview. “We’re just taking our time with it, being cautious with things,” Noel said on the station. “I’m definitely worried about my health, but regards to the whole season, that decision hasn’t been made up.”

Sooner rather than later

Tanaka wants to pitch in MLB Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka says he wants to pitch in the

U.S. sooner rather than later. Now he just needs his Japanese team to post him. The 25-year-old was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA in

2013, but his club, the Rakuten Golden Eagles, say they do not want him to leave. He would be a free agent after the 2015 season. METRO

Bogg-ed down

Report: Phillies look at Boggs The Phillies are not content with their bullpen. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported the

team is interested in former Cardinals and Rockies middle reliever Mitchell Boggs. Boggs pitched in just 27 games with an 8.10 ERA last season, but

had a 3.08 ERA over the previous three seasons with the Cardinals. Rosenthal said there are five other teams interested in signing Boggs. METRO
