Although a lot of focus in the offseason was spent talking about the loss of long-time Eagle Donovan McNabb, the Eagles lost another long-time player in Brian Westbrook. His final season in Philadelphia wasn’t so great, but it did give LeSean McCoy the opportunity to get some serious play time and set the Eagles rookie [...]

The Eagles found themselves in a familiar situation in Week Seventeen. They would be playing the Cowboys in the final game of the regular season with plenty at steak. Unlike the year before, both teams had already clinched playoff berths. At this point now, the two teams were fighting for the division title and the [...]

It’s been a big offseason for quarterbacks in Philadelphia. We’ve seen the exit of a franchise quarterback, plenty of talk about his heir, and then there’s Michael Vick. Many didn’t think he’d even be on the Eagles roster at this point of the year, but he’s in OTA’s and making some headlines for himself. Vick [...]

There was no doubt that the secondary competition in Training Camp was going to be something everyone would have their eyes on. However, with some of the developments taking place this week, the competition may be more interesting then we first expected. Macho Harris, who originally was listed to be in the competition for free [...]

The Eagles walked into Week Sixteen with a playoff berth already under their belt, but that was far from the main headline of the week. When the schedule came out, this was the game that immediately received everyone’s attention. This would be the return of Brian Dawkins to Philadelphia. At this point in the season, [...]

There’s been plenty of fan talk over the years about the Eagles moving to a 3-4 formation. The team seems to always draft players who would fit better in the 3-4 format rather than the 4-3 that the Eagles use. This year has been no different and there is plenty of buzz going around about [...]

DeSean Jackson has been finding himself in the headlines a lot this week. One interview with the Sporting News has turned into a giant fiasco, pitting Jackson against his former quarterback and his offensive coordinator. When Jackson took the interview, I don’t think he had any intentions of bad mouthing, throwing under the bus, or [...]

The Eagles played host to the San Francisco 49ers in Week Fifteen with large mounds of snow in the parking lot and freezing temperatures in the stadium. Despite the poor weather, the Birds knew that they could clinch a playoff birth with a victory. Keeping that in mind, the Eagles came out with an impressive [...]

Let me start by saying that I’m writing this with no disrespect to Donovan McNabb and I’m not one of the “haters.” However, I truly believe that Kevin Kolb will have better numbers and a more successful season in Philadelphia than Donovan McNabb will have in Washington. Here’s why: To start, Kevin Kolb is just [...]

In two years with Donovan McNabb, we’ve seen DeSean Jackson make plays with his blazing speed time after time. In two games in the 2009 season, we’ve seen Kevin Kolb throw for over 300 yards in both efforts. Now, the two players will consistently line up next to one another and try to make magic [...]

Over the past few seasons, we’ve seen some players come out of the draft and make immediate impacts for the team. Although this isn’t always expected, it’s very nice when it happens. The Eagles are hoping that some of their 2010 draft picks will see significant play time come the opener against Green Bay. The [...]

There’s no denying it, there is a new look to the Eagles now. A lot of this is because the Birds traded away their franchise quarterback that was a staple in the organization for a decade. His heir, Kevin Kolb, will take over the offense and is surrounded by loads of young weapons. This young [...]

The Eagles traveled to East Rutherford to play the Giants for the final time in Giants Stadium. Earlier in the season, the Eagles really took it to the G-men and would look to do it again. With a win, the Eagles would move back into first place in the NFC East. After a scoring frenzy [...]
