There may be no guarantee for an NFL season next year, but I can’t help but look forward to it. After last year, it’s hard to believe the Eagles can’t win another division title. There were some serious holes the team needed to address, and they haven’t had the ability to do so without free [...]

In every draft, you have expectations for your picks. Clearly, players that are taken in the earlier rounds are expected to make immediate impacts or be groomed so they’ll make a strong impact for many years to come.

Many things can be taken away from the NFL Draft each year. This year wasn’t any different. Each year we project what the Eagles are going to do. We get some aspects right, but at the same time, the team has plans that we don’t know about. However, the draft helps to make things clear. [...]

The 2011 NFL Draft is over. We had three days of football action, and now it’s uncertain as to the next time we’ll be able to see anymore football action. So for the time being, we have to cling to the draft as much as we can. For the second year in a row, the [...]

With their first pick in the 2011 NFL Draft the Eagles took offensive linemen Danny Watkins from Baylor. This pick has already received a ton of criticism from fans and sport talk show hosts, but I’m here to clear the air and explain why this is nothing short of an excellent pick. Today, I discuss [...]

As it does every year, the NFL Draft brought plenty of unexpected twists and turns throughout the night. Many expected quarterbacks to fly off the board early, and they did.
