Who would have thought that through the midpoint of the season, we’d be complaining about the Eagles offense and praising the defense? Not me, but that’s just where we are right now. The Eagles hit the halfway point with a record of 3-5 and a ton of questions about their offense. Although the Eagles’ ground […]

After an extremely disappointing showing against Dallas, the Eagles will look to bounce back and take down the Giants for the second time this season. It would be nice to see the Birds pick up their first home win of the year and their first home win in what feels like a lifetime. Earlier this […]

The performance by Nick Foles and the offense in the loss to the Cowboys was disappointing to say the least. The thing that may be the most disappointing is that they performed that way and the defense played very well. Dallas had the second highest scoring offense coming into Sunday and the Eagles defense only […]

What a spectacle the NFC East has been so far this season. Two teams will enter Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday with a 3-3 record and the winner will take over sole control of the division. The first six weeks have been ugly for all the teams in the division, but it’s time to look […]

The Eagles have had a number of problems this season. However, they finally have a good problem. They have two very capable quarterbacks who can win football games. The only issue is which quarterback to go with moving forward. It used to be an unwritten rule that you couldn’t lose your job due to injury. […]

Michael Vick and Nick Foles entered Eagles Training Camp this year to compete for the starting quarterback position. Although it seemed like both quarterbacks struggled to pick up the new system at first, Vick began to pull away from Foles and won the job. This could potentially be Foles’ opportunity to get some revenge. During […]

Boy that went fast. A month of football is already in the books. The Eagles finished the month of September with a record of 1-3 but are still very much alive in the NFC East division race. Today we take a closer look at the guy running the offense, quarterback Michael Vick, and his performance […]

It’s been a crazy three weeks in the NFL. If you told me before the season started that the Eagles would have the same record as San Fransisco, Green Bay, and Atlanta after the first three weeks, I’d think that was incredible. However, those three teams are not where I thought they would be in […]

After opening the season with two dominant quarters, the Eagles defense seem to have showed their true colors over the last six quarters. Against the Redskins, they had a large lead and shifted towards a “let’s try not to blow this” mentality. Against the Chargers, they were horrific from beginning to end. Just how bad […]

I didn’t think that the Eagles would enter week two the way they did. This isn’t to say that I’m complaining or anything, but I’m trying to keep a level-head after an impressive Week One performance. Looking ahead to Sunday, they face a Chargers team who has a bad taste in their mouth after a […]

Well that was fun, wasn’t it? The Eagles opened the game by driving the ball all the way down the field in dominant fashion before a deflected lateral ended up being returned for a Redskins touchdown. Despite the ultimate buzzkill, the Birds shook it off and again showed their dominance on the offensive side of […]

In the third round, the Eagles drafted Bennie Logan, a defensive tackle out of LSU. Scouts have mixed emotions on him. He has a strong upper body and has played very well at times. However, he is known to lack a ton of consistency at times. Logan stands 6-3 and 295 pounds and it seems […]

With their second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Eagles have selected tight end Zach Ertz out of Stanford. Ertz stands at 6-6 and 249 pounds and should be the red zone threat the Eagles have lacked over the years. Many gave him a first round grade and many ranked him higher than […]
