It was a tough pill to swallow. All week we were anticipating a great game and an eventual win by the Eagles. Neither of these happened. Instead we saw a lackluster performance from both teams for the majority of the game and a disappointing Eagles loss. What can we take from this game? We’ll start [...]

Week Four presents plenty of story lines. Donovan McNabb makes his return to Philadelphia and will do everything in his power to try and prove to the Eagles that they shouldn’t have traded him. New Eagles quarterback, Michael Vick, will look to continue his success and help prove that the Eagles are just fine without [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

For many young players, people expect them to show improvement after getting a year under the belt. However, no one ever talks about coaching doing the same thing. In 2010, I expect the Eagles coaching staff to improve their performance. The first person I look at is Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. Last season, he [...]

Eagles head coach Andy Reid answered a number of questions in an interview with Dave Spadaro today. One of the things Spadaro asked him about was the media’s perspective of the 2010 Eagles. It was noted that the Eagles were considered as a front runner for the Super Bowl over the past few years, but [...]

Andy Reid made quite the unusual move when he decided to trade his franchise quarterback for the last decade inside the division. Reid and Donovan McNabb spent their entire Eagles careers together so now there is a lot of question of how they will do without each other. It’s easy to say that Reid and [...]

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, [...]

This defense needs a lot of work. There is no question about that. However, when Andy Reid had nothing but praise for defensive coordinator Sean McDermott: “I thought that guy, my hat is off to him. That’s a tough thing that he did. He’s not into excuses. I’m not into excuses, but just looking at [...]

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 [...]

Keep Brian Westbrook in some function as an Eagle I haven’t heard much about Westbrook after he was shelved after his second concussion. I expect him to retire and deservedly so. He shouldn’t risk his health any further; like with Joe Frazier after his fight with prime Muhammad Ali, it may be time to hang [...]

After a satisfactory win by the Philadelphia Eagles over the San Francisco 49ers, the Eagles clinched the playoffs for the eighth time in ten years. Quite an impressive feat. However, the Dallas Cowboys are not too far behind. Tony Romo will seek redemption in the month of December, and it has already begun with a [...]

Before Sunday’s game starts with the Giants, the Eagles will know whether they’re playing for sole possession of first place in the division or looking to stay tied. Dallas has a tough matchup with the Chargers so the Eagles could very well be playing to stand alone atop the NFC East. This can’t be their [...]
