This is no surprise, as it was really just a matter of time. The Eagles had until February 24th to use the franchise tag on Michael Vick but chose to place the tag on him today. Placing the franchise tag on Vick means he will stay with the team in 2011. However, both Vick and [...]

When the Eagles brought in Bobby April, many people were excited about the Eagles developing strong special teams units. However, the team started very slow out of the gate. With a lot of youth on special teams, the coverage units were not very impressive early in the season. However, as time went on, they improved [...]

The 2010 Eagles season is now behind us and we have nothing to do but look forward to 2011. As is the case every season, there will be faces that leave the team and new faces that join it. Today I want to look at some of the biggest needs the Eagles will have moving [...]

Twitter is an amazing experience. One week ago the people whom I follow we all abuzz with talk of Kevin Kolb finally being a good QB and the defense rising to the occasion. What a difference a week makes. Now Michael Vick should be the starter, Kolb shouldn’t even be allowed to play in the [...]

The disappointing loss has had a day to sink in, so now it’s time to reflect. It seems as though the Eagles were two different teams on Sunday. The team in the first half wasn’t brilliant, but it was doing what it had to in order to win the football game. In the second half, [...]

The Eagles have one more game before they go into the bye week and it’s a big one. On Sunday, the Eagles will take on the 4-2 Tennessee Titans in what may be their toughest challenge so far this season. The Titans have an offense that features one of the most explosive players in the [...]

The Eagles welcomed a very talented Falcons team to Philadelphia on Sunday and took it to them from the start. After a lot of talk about the play of DeSean Jackson when Kevin Kolb is in the game, the Eagles got him involved early in the game. In the first quarter, he was able to [...]
