It was evident that the most consistent production this season came from the wide receiver position. There were significant strides made this season for DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and even Riley Cooper. Although Jackson was involved in some unforgettable moments, it was the play of Jeremy Maclin that spoke volumes this season. DeSean [...]

When the Eagles really needed a win, the team never quit on Sunday. It took a lot of guts for the Eagles to climb back into that game and put themselves in a position to win. As everyone seemed to step it up in the fourth quarter, the Eagles were able to escape the new [...]

It was ugly, make no mistake. The score indicates that the Eagles were in it all the way but the score lies. The Eagles fell to the Bears 31-26 in what was one of the worst defensive performances I’ve seen in recent years. As always, I’m here to highlight the highs and lows of the [...]

I don’t think anyone saw this coming. The Eagles traveled to Solider Field to take on a team who many, including myself, didn’t think were as good as their record indicated. However, the Bears had a nice game plan in effect to slow down the Eagles explosive offense and really stepped up in the red [...]

The saying is as old as time – “A win is a win.” The Eagles got the win against the rival New York Giants and it was a solid win. It was an ugly win in many cases but it was a win. However, unlike the win against the 49ers (truly ugly, hideous even) this [...]

That was fun. That was really fun. As of now, life is grand for Eagles fans. Life is more than grand, life is fun. I can’t remember a year that was quite as fun as this and I’m including the 2004 season in that. Obviously that year was a ton of fun but there’s something [...]

I hate losing prior to a bye week, but I should be used to it by now. I hate it because I get to spend two weeks thinking about everything that went wrong. One week of that is bad enough! However, we’re normally granted some solace because of Reid’s perfect record after the bye week. [...]

In this corner we have former starter, turned backup, turned starter due to injury! In this corner we have the exact same thing, just with a slightly different back story. Yes, the men I am referring to are Michael Vick of the Eagles and Shaun Hill of the Lions. The is the Battle of the [...]

The preseason is officially more than halfway done now. In their third preseason game with the Chiefs, the Eagles were a tale of two teams. We saw a defense who looked like they could be the best in the league, then a defense who looked terrible. The Eagles never looked stellar on offense, but there [...]

With two preseason games in the books, we have seen some of the same problems that the Eagles faced last season: short yardage and the red zone. The Eagles first team offense has yet to score an offensive touchdown in the preseason thus far. We need to see some improvement here. In Friday’s game against [...]

When people speak about the Eagles wide receivers, the focus tends to be on the one-two combination of DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. You can’t really blame them, but Jason Avant is just as big of a part of this wide receiver group as the other two. Avant is the workhorse of the wide receiver [...]

Red zone production is an area the Eagles have struggled in for some time now. They’ve found a lot of success in the big home run plays, but have struggled to punch it in when they get inside the 20. In 2010, I expect to see an improvement. One thing to think about is the [...]

It’s been a week since the free agency period started and the Eagles didn’t make the type of splash that many thought they would. There were a few big name veterans floating around out there and many of them have found new homes. For those who haven’t, it doesn’t look like Philadelphia will be a [...]
