Every well-run company does a yearly inventory check. In this eight-part series, I will break down, position-by-position, where the Eagles stand, how long-term their current situation is and the likelihood of a draft pick being spent on that position. Next up: The running backs. The Starter: Shady McCoy is a total stud. 1,607 rushing yards, […]
The Eagles are in a peculiar position for the 2014 NFL draft. Defensive back is their biggest need, but many people have been mocking a wide receiver to the Eagles in the wake of the DeSean Jackson release. This is a very deep draft for both wide receivers and defensive backs, so they can go […]

Every well-run company does a yearly inventory check. In this eight-part series, I will break down, position-by-position, where the Eagles stand, how long-term their current situation is and the likelihood of a draft pick being spent on that position. We start with the quarterbacks. The Starter: Nicky Numbers lit it up to the tune of […]
PLACE YOUR BETS! PLACE YOUR BETS! Per KTAR.com: PHOENIX — Former National Football League quarterback Donovan McNabb has been arrested in Mesa, Ariz., police said. Looking a little rough around the edges there, Donnie. The early reports do not give a reason for an arrest, just a confirmation of said arrest. This begs us to […]
Per ESPN: Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has agreed with the Washington Redskins. Jackson will join Washington on a three-year deal, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The deal is worth $24 million, including $16 million guaranteed, sources told Schefter. HAHA! Wow Redskins, big mistake, you stepped right into it. I don’t […]
After weeks of speculation, the Eagles announced Friday that they’ve parted ways with receiver DeSean Jackson. According to the Eagles, they informed Jackson of their decision to release him after “careful consideration.” The announcement came soon after a chilling NJ.com report stated that the Eagles were concerned with “Jackson’s continued association with reputed Los Angeles […]
After perhaps the most impressive season of any NFL running back in 2013 from Philadelphia Eagles’ back LeSean McCoy, some fans were shocked when his team went ahead and gave up a fifth round draft pick to the New Orleans Saints in order to sign Darren Sproles. We’ve heard it all before, star running backs […]
Whatever your feelings on Nate Allen may be, bringing the 26-year old safety back on a one-year, $2 million deal was a no-brainer. I get that Allen isn’t the most popular Eagle. Frankly, I wouldn’t have complained if Allen never put on the Midnight Green ever again. But there are just too many reasons why […]
New Orleans messed up big-time this off-season with Darren Sproles. They misjudged the market and got much less for Sproles than they could have. The Saints falsely assumed that Sproles, a 31-year old player at a position where 30-year olds are typically sent to the family farm, wouldn’t generate much interest from other teams. They […]
Brian Mitchell came to the Eagles in 2000. He had spent 10 years as a dynamic punt return/kick return/running back/slot receiver. Multi-faceted and dangerous in each aspect, Mitchell was already a known player. He had nine return touchdowns while putting up nearly 4,000 yards and 12 touchdowns from scrimmage in Washington. But at 32, seemed […]
The Eagles fan base is nationally recognized as one of the smartest and most passionate and this is why… I was having a brief conversation about free agency with my friend and Giants fan who, for his own protection, will remain nameless. Here is a brief excerpt from our conversation. First things first, he lives […]
Free agency is always a good time. We wait and wait for the gun to sound, and then they’re off. The 2014 free agency period came with no lack of excitement. When the whistle sounded, the deals started coming in rapidly. John Clayton of ESPN was following the free agency market closely and tweeted out […]
The Eagles added Malcolm Jenkins on the first day of Free Agency, and it’s definitely an upgrade to a bad group of Safeties that has been a team weakness since Brian Dawkins left. But is Malcolm Jenkins the difference maker that will turn the group around? Questionable. Jenkins was a terrific college player at Ohio […]
