You may have heard a thing or two about the Eagles being interested in Chip Kelly as their next head coach. If you were following the "drama", it was a showdown between Joe Banner and the Browns and Jeff Lurie and the Eagles. Neither won. Chip Kelly is heading back... Continue reading

The 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season comes to an end this week. It's been a long, torturous season in the aspect of watching this team fail, but the suffering will soon end. Then, a new kind of suffering begins...that of no Eagles football until August! Though some folks might be glad... Continue reading

What is with everyone that thinks Howie Roseman should be fired and Jeff Lurie is disrespecting the fans by not addressing the media? For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season's end. I... Continue reading

Is the perfect storm brewing that could ultimately keep Andy Reid in town as the head coach of the Eagles? I'm sure nobody really wants to hear this, or even think about it, but there is a scenario brewing that could ultimately keep Reid in Philly... Let's take into consideration... Continue reading

Ever since Michael Vick went down with his concussion, I've been pounding the drum that Nick Foles should remain the Eagles' starting QB for the rest of the season, regardless of how he or the team performs. I even went so far as to say that Andy Reid would be... Continue reading

If there is anymore excitement to be generated from the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles, it will be due to the play of rookie QB Nick Foles. The remainder of this season should be all about whether or not Foles is the future of this franchise. Assuming he plays for the rest... Continue reading

Photo: Getty Images Getting ready Philadelphia, the Eagles are about to embark on the Nick Foles era. Okay, maybe it's not quite that significant. However, Foles is slated to make his first career start this week against Washington in what will be a battle of the rookie quarterbacks. I've already... Continue reading

At this point, it's almost a foregone conclusion that Andy Reid will be relieved of his duties as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles at season's end. And unless the Mayan prophecy comes true next month, that's exactly what will happen come January. Although, I will throw out the disclaimer... Continue reading

From Day 1, Andy Reid's reputation has been as a man with a plan. He was the guy in control and knew what to do for any situation that arose. Reid was a relative unknown at the time he was hired in 1999 because he was just a quarterbacks coach... Continue reading

Is this Eagles team good enough to win a championship? Are Michael Vick and Andy Reid good enough to be considered a potential Super Bowl-winning coach and quarterback? We've all thought and talked about these types of things for a while now. The ultimate goal of every NFL team is... Continue reading

Photo: Vinny Curry, a second-round pick by the Eagles this year, has yet to be active for a regular season game. Through seven games this year, the supposed great Eagles pass rush has accounted for exactly eight of the defense's nine total sacks. The "wide-nine" has been wide-ly ineffective... Continue reading

Maclin, getting some YAC! Unfortuantely this photo is from 2010. Yards after the catch is perhaps one of he most under-appreciated stats for receivers in the NFL. It's a great indicator of a player's physical ability and his skills with the football in his hands. For a talented group of... Continue reading

Photo: Daily News via The 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season reminds me of two movies: Armageddon and Groundhog Day. This team's problems are a lot of the same things over and over again, which usually leads to disaster in Philadelphia. The Eagles are 3-3 and in the midst of their... Continue reading

However, don't blame Castillo, the blame here lies at the feet of the Big Man. Castillo ultimately became a victim of his own ambition. Because of his desire to advance up... Continue reading

Justin K. Aller - Getty Images The Philadelphia Eagles lost an epic battle of the Keystone State versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, 16-14, on a last second walk-off field goal. Okay, maybe it wasn't really epic as the game was marred by penalties and low scoring. However, it was a battle... Continue reading

The Philadelphia Eagles are taking their nice, shiny 3-1 record to Heinz Field where they're sure to get a few ketchup stains on their uniforms. The Steelers are a hard team to figure out right now, but I certainly think they are a better team than their 1-2 record would... Continue reading

Gregory Shamus/Getty Images Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg was peppered with questions this week about the run-pass ratio and whether or not they should run the ball more in the first half. After looking at his answers, and then going through the numbers myself, there is a little discrepancy... Continue reading

The Eagles out-gained the Cardinals in total offensive yards, 308 - 292, but that's about the only number that came out in their favor.... Continue reading
