After an interesting preseason, the Eagles first two games looked like a cake walk and then a tough match-up with a team that many believe will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. The cake walk didn’t exactly go as planned but the tough game ended up as advertised. In two short weeks, we’ve learned [...]

That was fun. Let’s do it again. In fact, let’s do it several more times. I’m thinking until at least the beginning of February. It sure was fun to have football again. However, I must admit I’m not thrilled about Thursday Night Football starting so soon…it doesn’t give me much time to get these articles [...]

Oh I’ve missed this. I’ve missed this dreadfully. Baseball is fun (though it’s been a tough year to be a Phils fan), basketball is alright, hockey is nice, NCAA football is fantastic….but none of them hold a candle to the NFL. Oh yes, it’s back baby! Professional football is here and it’s been far too [...]

One of the biggest problems with last year’s “Dream Team” was the inconsistent play at the linebacker position. You can blame it on the personnel, the first year defensive coordinator, or the shortened Training Camp due to the lockout. At the end of the day, there was just no consistency at the position. Coming into [...]

There are still two preseason games to be played, but there are already some legitimate concerns about the Eagles quarterback position this year. Michael Vick has played a total of 12 snaps in two games and has left each of them with an injury. He’s injured his thumb on Jason Kelce’s helmet and took a [...]

For the second preseason game in a row, Michael Vick’s night was ended after six snaps. This time around, Vick took a hard shot to the ribs while trying to scramble away from a defender. The good news is that x-rays turned out to be negative so it looks like he’ll only be experiencing some [...]

As summer continues to fly by, the Eagles time at Lehigh University has already done so. I feel like they just got there, but the Eagles are already done with their time in Bethlehem. Have we learned a lot about this team? I like to think so. However, I think a lot of questions still [...]

Well, we have one preseason game in the books. It was a pretty standard preseason game with ups and downs throughout the game. Some players impressed, some didn’t. In any preseason game, you have to take everything with a grain of salt. We see vanilla offenses and some guys who you know will make the [...]

There was a lot of anticipation for this year’s NFL draft and it came and went in a blink of an eye. Let’s take a quick second to reflect on all of the picks: Rd 1 (12) – Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State Rd 2 (46) – Mychal Kendricks, LB, California Rd 2 (59) – [...]

After what was regarded as a popular pick on the first day in Defensive Tackle Fletcher Cox, the Eagles drafted a few more highly regarded prospects with two second round picks and a third round pick. In the second round, the Eagles drafted linebacker Mychal Kendricks with the 46th overall pick. To read more extensively [...]

It almost feels weird that the Eagles drafted the person that we thought they would. Fletcher Cox was the popular choice for the Eagles in the first round, and that is who they ended up with. In order to move up to get Cox, they had to sacrifice a 4th and 6th round pick. The [...]

Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford. Aren’t you glad you were sitting down for this one? 2. Washington Redskins (From St. Louis) – Robert Griffin III, [...]

Not sure who the Eagles are going to draft in the first round? Neither am I. Over the last month or so, we’ve taken a closer look at some prospects who the Eagles may consider. Most of these are first round type targets, but there are also a number of players on the list who [...]
