With the Eagles having a bye week, it allows us to shift our attention around the league. Although we always have to keep an eye on the NFC East, we’ll take a closer look today. As it stands, the Eagles are currently tied second in the division with a record of 4-3. They’re just a [...]

With the NFL season set to begin on Thursday, it’s time to make some predictions on the NFC East. As always it will again be another interesting season for the East, especially since McNabb was traded within the division. The last two division titles have been won in the last week of the regular season [...]

Week 17 is upon us and sure enough, another intriguing matchup with the Dallas Cowboys to end the regular season. Last season the Eagles needed both the Bears and Bucs to lose and a victory over the Cowboys at home to sneak into the playoffs. Miraculously, with the Birds playing at 4:15 PM, we saw [...]

When the Eagles started this game they knew that if they won they would stand alone in first place of the NFC East. They received the ball first Sunday night and it looked as they knew this and were poised and ready to take advantage of the opportunity they were given. The Birds scored on [...]

From the start of this game, you could see some points were going to be scored. Little did we know that this would be the largest amount of points scored in a match up between the two teams. The offense came out hot and scored on their first possession and the defense came out and [...]

The Eagles are in the thick of a playoff race right now and a win today would be huge. It’s not a do or die game but the Birds should approach it like it is. Winning tonight will keep the Eagles at least tied for the division lead and put them in a great position [...]

Before Sunday’s game starts with the Giants, the Eagles will know whether they’re playing for sole possession of first place in the division or looking to stay tied. Dallas has a tough matchup with the Chargers so the Eagles could very well be playing to stand alone atop the NFC East. This can’t be their [...]

When the New York Giants came to Philadelphia this year, everyone expected your typical NFC East battle. However, shortly after the game had started, everyone could tell this wasn’t going to be the case. A few seconds into the second quarter, the Eagles had jumped out to a 16-0 lead and had the Giants scratching [...]

Coming into the season, this figured to be a tough division filled with a lot of experience and fire power. The NFC East has always been viewed as a physical division and usually comes down to the final weekend to decide the division winner. The NFC East has endured great success over the last couple [...]

Welcome to our Week Eight edition of the Friday Five Pack. The Eagles take on their divisional rival, the New York Giants, on Sunday and will be looking for a big win. Both teams have shown flashes of brilliance, but at the same time have come out and played sloppy football in other weeks. This [...]

I don’t know how many of you got to see the Giants and Cardinals game on Sunday night, but the Giants offense looked terrible. Eli Manning threw for three interceptions and of their two touchdowns, one came on a total fluke play. Manning wasn’t able to get anything going because the Cardinals called a great [...]

Well we are finally to the point in the schedule that many people, including myself, were looking forward to. When you saw the early part of the schedule you saw there were no early challenges besides the Saints in Week Two and figured the Eagles should come into this game at 5-1 at the worst. [...]
