What Went Wrong With Philadelphia Eagles After 3-0 Start?

December 6, 2016

Embed from Getty Images   Sunday’s 32-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals was the final nail in the coffin for the 2016 Philadelphia Eagles. They trailed 29-0 to a team that entered the day 4-7-1; some late garbage-time scores from the Eagles shouldn’t hide what was an all-around embarrassing effort. At two games under .500 in the NFC’s most competitive division, it would take an absolute miracle for Doug Pederson’s…

November 11, 2016

Embed from Getty Images   Carson Wentz has an extremely bright future with the Philadelphia Eagles. We saw what he did in his first three NFL games, when he became the first quarterback in league history to win each of his first three starts without throwing an interception.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman Early Favorite for Executive of the Year

October 3, 2016

Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz.  I could write his name 500 times in a row, 100 times for each touchdown pass he’s thrown so far this season, and it would probably be one of the best articles some of you have ever read. Maybe that reflects on my writing style, but I think it’s more proof that this city is completely infatuated with its new…

How Good Can Eagles’ Rookie Quarterback Carson Wentz Be?

September 21, 2016

He’s led the Eagles to a 2-0 record. He’s thrown for three touchdowns without an interception, the only rookie in league history to win his first two starts without committing a turnover. He’s calm, confident and poised, already drawing comparisons to both Aaron Rodgers, by All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters, and Brett Favre, by head coach Doug Pederson. His jersey is the top seller in the country, and he’s already…

5 Key Matchups to Watch for in Philadelphia Eagles’ Opener vs. Cleveland Browns

September 10, 2016

Embed from Getty Images Despite a 7-9 record in 2015, there’s strong reason for optimism among the Philadelphia fanbase. GM Howie Roseman pulled off a remarkable trade when he shipped Sam Bradford to Minnesota for a first-round pick, and that means the Carson Wentz era starts sooner than expected. Wentz played sparingly in the preseason but got the starting nod from head coach Doug Pederson. It’s a favorable matchup for…

Making Sense of the Minnesota Vikings’ Trade for Philadelphia Eagles’ QB Sam Bradford

September 3, 2016

Robbery. That’s the only word to describe what Eagles general manager Howie Roseman did to the Minnesota Vikings. Just days after the Vikings lost Teddy Bridgewater for the season, and possibly beyond, to a torn ACL and dislocated knee, Minnesota traded a 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 conditional fourth-round pick to the Eagles for Sam Bradford. (The pick could turn into a third-round pick if the Vikings reach the…

Philadelphia Eagles Add High-Upside Wide Receiver Dorial Green-Beckham

August 16, 2016

Embed from Getty Images   The Philadelphia Eagles made an interesting move on Tuesday when they acquired second-year wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham from the Tennessee Titans in exchange for backup guard/tackle Dennis Kelly. DGB, the 40th overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, had already fallen out of favor with the Titans’ current coaching staff, but will get the opportunity to compete for a starting role in Philly. If you…

One Question for Each Philadelphia Eagles’ Positional Unit Heading Into 2016 Season

August 11, 2016

It’s been a relatively quiet training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles through the first two weeks. And that’s perfectly fine. This is a team that frequently dominates the headlines during the offseason, lately for moves that haven’t worked out the way they should.  A few months ago, the Eagles stole headlines when they engineered a massive trade to move up to the number two overall pick, where they selected North…

Why Buddy Ryan Deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame

June 28, 2016

The National Football League lost one of its all-time greats on Tuesday morning as former head coach and defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan died at the age of 85.  Ryan entered the NFL as a defensive line coach with the Buffalo Bills in 1961 and exited the league 34 years later as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.
