Since we’re just about crossing the halfway point of the NFL season, I wanted to take stock of the entire league by dishing out my thoughts in a power ranking setup. Mainly, I’m doing this because I would love to hear your guys’ comments and whether you agree or (most likely) disagree with anyone’s placement [...]

How ‘bout dem Cowboys?? Studs and duds is back!! After a two-month-long hiatus (mostly due to poor play by the Eagles pissing this writer off so bad that it was impossible to even write about it), let’s take a look at the best and worst performers from the Eagles thrashing of the ‘Boys on Sunday [...]

Sunday’s win was necessary on so many levels. After four straight losses, the Eagles were staring a 1-5 start directly in the face. At 1-4, your chances of making the playoffs are extremely slim, but it’s happened before. But, at 1-5, you can start planning your OTAs and Training Camp right then. Also, this was [...]

Pissed off. Frustrated. Furious. Angry. Embarrassed. Hopeless. These are the different emotions I have felt since the Eagles 31-24 loss in Buffalo. I’m sure many of you feel the same. Every single one of them is justified. This team is in a complete state of disarray. They are flailing. They’re a wounded deer waiting to [...]

Studs Jason Peters Peters was a beast on Sunday night, pure and simple. He owned Ray Edwards all night. He got downfield in the passing game, including Maclin’s 35-yard touchdown catch where he paved the way with a great block. He dominated in the run game as well, consistently giving McCoy lanes to run to [...]

First off, I’d like to say it’s great to be back. An NFL Sunday just has a different feel than any other sport, and it was good to see the Birds get off on the right foot this week. With that said, the good news first: Studs Michael Vick It’s no secret that the Eagles’ [...]

With the Eagles struggles at right cornerback having been well documented, it seems very logical that they would go in the direction of corner at this year’s draft. The draft is the way the Eagles have built their previous two dynamic secondaries in the past decade that lifted them to unprecedented success in team history. [...]

Note: Keep in mind that no trades can happen until a new CBA is agreed upon. Saying that, these scenarios outlined below are under the assumption that a CBA will be in place before the 2011 Draft. Most people would argue that the Eagles are not only set at the QB position, but that they [...]

The 2010 season saw more ups than downs in terms of the performance of the coaching staff, but they still aren’t close to where they need to be to win a championship. As for the head coach, love him or hate him, you have to admit this was one of Andy Reid’s best coaching jobs. [...]

The tight end play of the 2010 Eagles was solid overall. Brent Celek took a step back from his Pro Bowl-caliber 2009 campaign, but was still a solid contributor. He had 42 receptions for 511 yards and 4 TDs, good for a 12.2 YPC average, which ranked him 11th among all NFL tight ends. Meanwhile, [...]

If you followed the Eagles this year, you know that the QB position has been an extremely hot topic with the Birds all season long. First, this was Kevin Kolb’s team. He went through OTAs and all of training camp as the undisputed starter. This was supposed to be the beginning of a new era [...]

Everyone reading this knows two things about the Eagles this season: their offense is their strength, and their defense is their weakness. No mystery there. This is an Eagles’ offense that set a franchise record for points scored in a season, has a quarterback who is in the top two of the MVP discussion in [...]

Since there are so many running backs with so many different styles playing today, it’s hard to determine one back who is the “best running back” in the NFL. Some analysts prefer the power and straight-ahead nature of Adrian Peterson, while others prefer the quickness and versatility of Arian Foster. Maybe this is because I [...]
