For the third year in a row, Mike Burzawa of BearGogglesOn.com was kind enough to spend some time answering some questions for me prior to an Eagles and Bears matchup. This time around, he spends some time talking about Gabe Carimi, the Bears rookie who may return to a key role in the offense this [...]

The Eagles will be back in the national spotlight again this week as they host the Bears on Monday Night Football. They played well under the bright lights last week and will look to pull their record back up to the .500 mark. The Bears are coming off a bye week so they’re well rested. [...]

Michael Vick has struggled this season. I think it’s pretty fair to say that. However, when the Eagles needed him most, in a must win divisional game against the Cowboys, Vick brought his A-game. Without a question, this was by far Vick’s best game of the season. Statistically, he completed 75% of his passes, while [...]

Although it seems like this has been the scenario just about every week so far this year, the Eagles were facing a must win game. It seemed the Eagles were very aware of this as they came out firing on all cylinders from the very first snap. Michael Vick had a very impressive game. He [...]

Yet again, the Eagles head into another “must win” type of matchup. The fact that the NFC East has been playing inconsistently as a whole means the Eagles still have a chance to win the division. However, they have a lot of work to do, and the first hurdle is taking down the Cowboys this [...]

It’s Eagles-Cowboys week! In the spirit of the rivalry, I was able to speak with Jeric Griffin of TheCowboysCentral.com. He spoke on his thoughts of the Eagles during the offseason as compared to now, the performance of DeMarco Murray, and where both teams will have an advantage come Sunday. To end, Jeric gives a prediction [...]

There’s no denying the fact that the majority of the Eagles struggles have come on the defensive side of the ball this year. The offense hasn’t been stellar, but the defense has been far worse. Although the defense has struggled in all aspects, the most glaring has been their run defense. They made some adjustments [...]

During the 2010 season, Brandon Graham didn’t perform at the level everyone hoped he would. The Eagles made him their guy when they traded up to get him in the draft, and this set the bar very high. To add to Graham’s disappointing 2010 campaign, he had his season cut short when he suffered a [...]

I wanted to write a full write up here. But honestly, what do we say? Too many turnovers. Awful penalty at the end of the game. I’m packing it in for the year. Please leave a comment if you feel any different.

Do you think anyone wishes they could turn back time more than Vince Young? Dream Team. Two little words that put the media in a stir and has kept them spinning through the first four weeks of the Eagles season. When Young spoke those words, it put a target on the Eagles backs. However, as [...]

Although Michael Vick’s injury status was seriously downgraded when it was determined his hand is actually bruised not broken, you still have to wonder how this team would function without him. At this point, it’s not guaranteed that Vick will play on Sunday against the 49ers. Indications are that he will play, and you have [...]

After suffering a concussion last weekend, Michael Vick suffered yet another injury in the loss to the Giants. Vick has broken his non-throwing hand, and his status moving forward is unknown. Before the season started, everyone was aware that the backup quarterback position was an important one for the Eagles. With Vick’s style of play, [...]

Let me preface this whole piece by saying that I’ve never been this upset by an Eagles loss in a long time. Last week was the kind of game that I could have seen the Eagles losing and I wouldn’t have been super upset. This game is the opposite. I’ve spoken to people on the [...]
