When the Eagles picked up Mike Bell, I was very excited. Today, the Eagles traded Mike Bell, and I’m equally as excited. In return for Bell, the Eagles acquired Browns running back Jerome Harrison. My first thought on the trade is, what a surprise, another trade with Cleveland. Beyond that, it seems like both running [...]

Although everyone’s initial focus was on the rib injury Michael Vick suffered against the Redskins, a lot of attention has been turned towards another rib injury. Without anyone really knowing, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy suffered a rib injury in the second quarter of the game but stayed on the field. Despite being able to [...]

Friday’s game against the Chiefs is not one the Eagles should be happy about. Sure, they won the game and winning is always better than losing. However, this was the last game we’ll see the starters play in before the big Week One match-up with the Packers. The game on Friday was very much a [...]

Tonight will be the best preseason game to watch out of them all. The starters will play for a full three quarters, and any questions we’ve had about the starting units should be answered tonight. On the offensive side of the ball, the biggest thing I’ll be looking for is red zone scoring. I want [...]

When the Eagles signed Mike Bell, I was quite happy with the move. His size and power are a great compliment to LeSean McCoy who is more of a shifty runner. Also, he has only spent four years in the NFL, so he has plenty of tread left on the tires. However, we have yet [...]

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 [...]

Organized team activities give new players the chance to meet their new teammates and the chance to start learning a new system. So far this year, there have been a lot of opportunities for the new Eagles to get increased reps. When Marlin Jackson went down in OTA’s, Eagles second round pick Nate Allen started [...]

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 [...]

Although a lot of focus in the offseason was spent talking about the loss of long-time Eagle Donovan McNabb, the Eagles lost another long-time player in Brian Westbrook. His final season in Philadelphia wasn’t so great, but it did give LeSean McCoy the opportunity to get some serious play time and set the Eagles rookie [...]

I saw comments all over the place last week with people weighing in on whether or not they thought Mike Bell was a good signing for the Eagles. It seemed like a pretty even split with people liking the move and people not liking the move. Personally, I think it’s a good addition for the [...]
