Although he had a lot of success protecting Ryan Tannehill, Luke Joeckel really made a name in 2012 as he was protecting the blindside of Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Manziel. Standing at 6-6 and 306 pounds, he was a rock all year for Manziel on the left side. When watching tape of Joeckel, you won’t [...]

Going into Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay, there were two things I wanted to see out of the Eagles. First and foremost was improvement out of Nick Foles. The second was improvement from the defense. Win or lose, I didn’t care too much as long as I saw those things. Let’s start with Foles. Week [...]

The saying “the season is over” is a common one in football. It comes out when a key player goes down or when a team knows they have little to no playoff hopes. I think “the season is over” is a common mindset among Eagles fans right now. However, there are still six games remaining. [...]

Another week in the books, and the story remains the same. Michael Vick continues to play poorly but Andy Reid is sticking with him. Even with the team’s struggles, SportsBetting.ag shows the Eagles as just three point underdogs on the road in New Orleans in the always hostile Superdome. The Saints have shown some struggles [...]

My self inflicted curse wasn’t quite as bad as I feared it would be. Last week I did okay. Not great. No terrible. There are some teams who are getting very easy to figure out. There are other teams that I’m prepared to give up on trying to figure out. Like the Bills. But, nonetheless, [...]

I feel like I’m starting to hit my stride. After an embarrassing week three (6-10), I’ve gone two weeks in a row with a minimum of 11 games called right. Even a league as crazy as the NFL can be figured out. With that said, I’ve likely ensured myself another terrible week. Let the curse [...]

Remember how dominant the Eagles defensive line was in the preseason? No matter who was out there, they were getting to the quarterback early and often. They racked up a ton of sacks and it looked like in a 16 game season they may be able record roughly one million. However, we’re five games into [...]

Another Eagles game is in the books, and so is another close outcome. However, the Eagles ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard this game. For the first time this season, the Eagles came into the game as an underdog. Despite being the dogs, I still felt this was a very winnable game [...]

Hey guys. I’ve had absolutely no time this week. So here’s my picks. No witty rambling to accompany it. My picks are in italics. Let’s hit it. Cardinals @ Rams – Yes, you just have to believe me. Dolphins @ Bengals Packers @ Colts Ravens @ Chiefs Browns @ Giants Eagles @ Steelers Falcons [...]

I was going to start this article with a rant about the replacement officials, Roger Goodell, the owners, and Nickelback. Well, the replacement official issue has been resolved. So there goes that. Oh wait….Niceklback. Yeah, they suck. So I’m having a rough season so far. Really rough. But I’ve still got time to turn it [...]

After two narrow victories in the first two weeks, the Eagles got a reality check in a 27-6 road loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It’s still very early in the season and there is still a lot of football to be played. There are still a lot of question marks about this team. Can Michael [...]

This is a guest post from Lucas McMillan of FootballSchedule.me. Through the first two games of the season, Michael Vick turned the ball over six times, yet the Eagles were 2-0. However, after the Eagles’ devastating Week 3 loss against the Arizona Cardinals, in which they turned the ball over three times, it’s clear that [...]

Week two is in the books and I’ve improved by one whole game. I’m a big boy now. Time for week three. Are you excited? I am. I’m super duper excited. I’m feeling a little goofy as I write this, in case you haven’t noticed. With two weeks down, I’m starting to get a feel [...]
