The Eagles entered Sunday’s game coming off a bye and a bad taste in their mouth after letting a game slip out of their fingertips the previous week. You knew the Eagles were going to be geared up for this one, but I don’t think we expected such a fast start. The Eagles quickly jumped [...]

This was supposed to be the season where Kevin Kolb makes his mark on the NFL. This was supposed to be the classic rebuilding year after the dismissal of many impact players that had been around for the last decade. This was supposed to be the year that the Eagles would struggle in the NFC [...]

Coming off an extremely disappointing game against the Tennessee Titans, the Eagles enter the bye week with a record of 4-3. The game against the Titans was a very winnable game and the Eagles missed out on a great opportunity to take control of the NFC East. With that being said it’s time to point [...]

With Vick ruled out for the game against the 49ers, Kevin Kolb stepped back into the starting role for the first time since Week 1. This was Kolb’s chance to once again prove himself to the NFL that he has what it takes to be an efficient quarterback in this league. As if there wasn’t [...]

As if there wasn’t enough quarterback controversy to begin the season, Sunday added another element to the situation. Donovan McNabb returned to Philadelphia for the first time since being traded to the Washington Redskins in the off season. McNabb was a franchise player for the Eagles for 11 seasons and he was given a standing [...]

Coming into the season, we knew that the offensive line was going to be a bit shaky based on their performance in Training Camp and in the preseason. What we didn’t know, was that the offensive line struggles would force a dramatic quarterback change by Week Three. On Tuesday, Andy Reid shocked much of the [...]

Let me start off by saying that Kevin Kolb is the QB of this team until he can prove that he cannot handle the situation. Vick has really stepped up his game but let’s face it, the Eagles are not a Super Bowl team this year. Therefore, we have to find out what we have [...]

After the trade of Donovan McNabb, I thought all of the quarterback controversy would be put to rest. Boy was I wrong. Just one week into the 2010 season, there appears to be a split in opinion to have Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick run the offense. Kolb did not do his best to win [...]

Over the last couple of years concussions have become a major issue throughout the league. The league has made it clear that they are trying to crack down to reduce concussions. As a result, the league has installed certain rules to help minimize concussions. The players are required to pass certain medical tests in order [...]

With the NFL season set to begin on Thursday, it’s time to make some predictions on the NFC East. As always it will again be another interesting season for the East, especially since McNabb was traded within the division. The last two division titles have been won in the last week of the regular season [...]

This summer was an interesting one for second string quarterback Michael Vick. Vick was involved in an off the field issue when he decided to throw a 30th birthday party that eventually involved a shooting. Although Vick’s name was eventually cleared, it did not help an already tarnished image. Aside from all the drama, many [...]

With two preseason games in the books, we have seen some of the same problems that the Eagles faced last season: short yardage and the red zone. The Eagles first team offense has yet to score an offensive touchdown in the preseason thus far. We need to see some improvement here. In Friday’s game against [...]

Coming off a strong performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first preseason game, the Eagles’ secondary will face a much greater challenge against the Cincinnati Bengals. With the addition of T.O. and Antonio Bryant, the Bengals have added great depth to the wide receiver position. Pairing these two up with the entertaining Chad OchoCinco [...]
