To the surprise of no one, the Eagles placed the franchise tag on wide receiver DeSean Jackson. This was something that had been talked about for a long time, and although I thought they might wait until closer to the deadline, it was a move I was just about certain they’d have to make. The [...]

DeSean Jackson has hit a bit of a rough patch. He’s been criticized, questioned, and it seems his frustration is starting to get the best of him. I never really believed that there was a possibility of the Eagles not resigning him until a few weeks ago. They have depth at the position, but I [...]

I’ve felt that this season has been over for a while now, but there have been people with more faith than me. At this point though, it’s over. The sad news is there are still five more games left. So what can you do when your season is over? You learn as much as you [...]

Many people probably put this game down as a loss when they tried to predict the Eagles schedule in the beginning of the year. What they probably didn’t predict is that they’d enter that game with a record of 4-6. It’s been a very rough season and yesterday was a very rough game. Here are [...]

Well, I certainly feel a lot better than I did about a year ago. Last season the Eagles got rocked by the Packers in Philadelphia, lost Kevin Kolb and Stewart Bradley to injury, and lost a close game. It was far different Sunday, with the Eagles beating down the Rams 31-13. Each week I’ll be [...]

I don’t know if there has ever been another season for the Eagles where the expectations have been so high. From all of the additions the team made this offseason, to labeling themselves as a “dream team,” the bar has been set very high. The Eagles opened the game by receiving the ball, and the [...]

Today, the Eagles will take the field in their season opener today in St. Louis against the Rams. Former Eagles assistant coach Steve Spagnuolo will face the Eagles again as the Rams head coach. Talent does not win games, but who has more talent at each position? Quarterback: Eagles: The Eagles will have 2010 MVP [...]

Pinch me. Seriously, pinch me. Football’s back? It seems like so long ago that we were all in panic mode over the CBA negotiations. Everyone was questioning if the season would start on time. Oh how the times have changed. Football. Is. Back. Every week, I’ll be giving you wonderful people a very long and [...]

Do you believe it? It almost doesn’t feel real. However, football is back and it’s time to get pumped. To start the show, we reflect on the Eagles preseason, taking a quick look at all the new acquisitions and how they’ve all looked thus far. Despite being a “Dream Team,” we take an in-depth look [...]

Michael Vick has agreed to a six year, $100 million deal to continue to play with the Philadelphia Eagles per Andrew Brandt via twitter. Vick will earn $16.7 mil per year since the contract is not fully backloaded, but will make less than he would have on the franchise tag for the first two years. [...]

Today, birdsfan.com took a trip to Lehigh to watch camp. We fed live updates from twitter with play by play action. We saw a good day of camp (not too hot), and a few fights broke out, so here is the analysis from today’s practice from the Philadelphia Eagles. Who was impressive today: To start, [...]
