The PHLY Zone: Sixers-Nets showdown, Super Bowl memories, and school reopenings

Frank Franklin II/AP

In this episode of The PHLY Zone, the team talks about how the Sixers have matched up against tough competition this year, the team’s offensive identity without Embiid, look toward the showdown with the Nets, discuss Eagles Super Bowl memories, and take a closer look at the schools reopening in the city.

In marquee matchups with the Lakers and Pacers, the stars, coaches, and the bench rose to the occasion. Whether it was Embiid’s 28 points, six rebounds, and four assists against the Lakers, Tobias’ game-winning shot in the same game, or Simmons’ 21 points against the Pacers, the team has responded.

In the Lakers game, Doc drew up a play to get Tobias on a switch. In the Pacers game, he switched to zone. He also won Eastern Conference Coach of the Month. The team will need that coaching against the Nets this weekend. We looked into how the Sixers matchup against the three-headed monster of Harden, Durant, and Irving.

The Philadelphia Eagles hired Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their new head coach. Drawing a close on their widely cast coaching search, Sirianni brings an NFL resume full of experience to the Eagles. Sirianni, 39, previously worked on both the Chiefs (offensive quality control, assistant quarterbacks coach, and wide receivers coach) and Chargers (offensive quality control, quarterbacks coach, and wide receivers coach).In the past three seasons, the Colts offense under Reich and Sirianni ranked: 10th, 19th, and 12th.

We examine the coaching hire and coaching search.

Philadelphia’s teachers union doesn’t believe buildings aren’t safe for occupancy. On Wednesday night, Philadelphia Federation of Teachers President Jerry Jordan said he had called on the city to appoint a third-party mediator to arbitrate the dispute, an option made available to both the union and the school district by a memorandum of agreement they signed last fall.

The district is currently installing over a thousand window fans in classrooms to increase airflow. The images have drawn public outcry. On Thursday, 119 School District of Philadelphia nurses released a letter calling on the district to delay reopening buildings until all school-based staff is vaccinated.

We dive into if the schools should reopen and the teachers’ options.
