The 2010 season brings a lot of new hope and excitement to the Eagles team, but the same goal still remains; winning a Super Bowl. However, the goals under Kevin Kolb seem to be much different than when McNabb was under center. Entering the 2010 season the fan base seems to be content with an [...]

There seems to be a different Andy Reid on the sidelines during this year’s training camp. No, Andy did not shed any pounds in the offseason, but his approach towards his players appears to be much different. With a young and inexperienced team, Andy has become much more hands on with certain players, specifically his [...]

After the Eagles ended the 2009 season in embarrassing fashion, there was a sense that a dramatic change was on the horizon. Sure enough, not too far after the season ended, franchise QB Donovan McNabb was traded within the division to the Washington Redskins. With the snap of a finger, all eyes turned to Kevin [...]

The Eagles come into the season with a front four on the defensive line that could be deadly. Currently the starting defensive line will consist of all-pro DE Trent Cole, DT Brodrick Bunkley, DT Mike Patterson, and either vertern DE Juqua Parker or high-motored Rookie DE Brandon Graham. There have been many departures on the [...]

It seems as though the unthinkable is truly going to happen. Andy Reid is more than likely going to trade his treasured QB, Donovan McNabb. The trade is now a matter of when, not if, it is going to happen. Over the past three months, McNabb’s name has been linked to about as many teams, [...]

Week 17 is upon us and sure enough, another intriguing matchup with the Dallas Cowboys to end the regular season. Last season the Eagles needed both the Bears and Bucs to lose and a victory over the Cowboys at home to sneak into the playoffs. Miraculously, with the Birds playing at 4:15 PM, we saw [...]

Last March, Eagles fans all throughout the country cringed at the fact that the heart and soul of the Philadelphia Eagles, Brian Dawkins, had just left his home for the Denver Broncos. This really left a bad taste in mouths of Eagles fans and was a terrible PR move. As the saying goes though, you [...]

The first 11 games of the 2009 season have brought extreme highs but also frustrating lows. The Eagles opened up the season down in Carolina with a 38-10 thumping of the Panthers. Things looked great until the 4th quarter when Donavon went down with broken ribs after scoring a touchdown. We didn’t know at the [...]

The Eagles opened the game with a risky call to attempt to recover an onsides kick. Not exactly sure what Andy was thinking but the Eagles failed miserably which led to an early Redskins touchdown. With this questionable decision by “Big Red”, it gave the Redskins all the confidence in the world that they could [...]

Today the Eagles have announced that they have signed offensive lineman to a 4-year extension. The details of the extension have not yet been released. This was the final season on Winston Justice’s rookie contract. I am not sure if there was anyone in Philadelphia who thought this would be possible after that dismal start [...]

Coming into the season, this figured to be a tough division filled with a lot of experience and fire power. The NFC East has always been viewed as a physical division and usually comes down to the final weekend to decide the division winner. The NFC East has endured great success over the last couple [...]

Brian Westbrook suffered another concussion in Sunday’s devastating loss to the Chargers. First thought that comes to mind is, where do the Eagles and Westbrook go from here? Was this concussion a direct result of not having fully recovered from the previous concussion that had occurred against the Washington Redskins? Westbrook has never played a [...]

Going into the season last year, it had seemed as if the window was closing quickly. However, with drastic changes on both sides of the ball, the Eagles became a much younger squad in a hurry. However, two large veteran statues remain; Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb. Andy Reid’s first draft pick was Donovan McNabb [...]
