Different year, same result. That’s the story of the Philadelphia Eagles when it comes to the red zone. The Eagles have phenomenal talent on the offensive side of the ball, but for some reason the coaching staff does not know how to utilize their weapons when it matters most.

One of the biggest needs for the Philadelphia Eagles heading into the 2011 draft is offensive line . Andy Reid failed to draft any offensive lineman last year, but I can guarantee that this is in area that will be heavily targeted come April 28. The offensive line proved to be inconsistent last season and […]

After battling back from a torn ACL from the previous season, Jackson once again was shelved on the IR. Mike McGlynn stepped in for the injured Jackson, […]

Entering the 2010 season, the Eagles found themselves still trying to fill the void of losing Brian Dawkins to the Broncos a couple season ago. The Eagles tried to address that situation by drafting Nate Allen with their second round pick in the 2010 draft. There was some solid play from both the free safety […]

The Eagles entered the 2010 season looking to find some consistency in the cornerback position despite losing all-pro corner Sheldon Brown in a trade to Cleveland. The departure of Brown left a huge question mark as to who would play right corner during the season. This seemed to be a common theme all season for […]

It was evident that the most consistent production this season came from the wide receiver position. There were significant strides made this season for DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and even Riley Cooper. Although Jackson was involved in some unforgettable moments, it was the play of Jeremy Maclin that spoke volumes this season. DeSean […]

If you said the Eagles would have won the NFC East division and hold a home playoff game in the beginning of the season, many people would have said you were crazy. If you said Michael Vick would have resurrected to be a Pro Bowl quarterback again people again would have said you were crazy. […]

The Eagles will start the playoffs with the same opponent they started with in the regular season, the Green Bay Packers. Although the first game has absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming game, the reason that Michael Vick is starting as quarterback began with the Week 1 loss to the Packers. If you remember, […]

Let’s be honest, when we found out Donovan McNabb was being traded we were thrilled. When we heard McNabb was traded to the Redskins we were confused, angry, and we even worried a bit. Why would Andy Reid make a trade within the division when the Eagles knew he would face us twice a year? […]

The Eagles received an early Christmas present this past Sunday when they miraculously came back to stun the Giants. This game will forever live in infamy as one of the greatest endings to a game to ever be played in the NFL. However, when the Eagles look at the film they will see that they […]

LeSean “Shady” McCoy is the complete package. In fact at this point in his career, McCoy is the most productive offensive player in Eagles’ history. LeSean McCoy now has 2,455 yards from scrimmage which passes DeSean Jackson for the most yards from scrimmage in his first two seasons. McCoy was the main reason the Eagles […]

Say what you want about Andy Reid, but when it comes to developing a quarterback, Andy Reid is brilliant. This is not just about the recent success of Michael Vick; this is about the development of the quarterbacks under Andy Reid during the past 11 seasons. Prior to coming to the Eagles, Reid was an […]
