With a 4-3 record, the Eagles are nearing the halfway point of what has been a typical rollercoaster Eagles season. It started with extreme highs, but the last month has seen the Eagles come back to earth with losses in three of their last four games. If the season ended now, the Eagles would miss the postseason for the fifth time in the last six seasons.  Below are my 25…

Recapping NFL Week 6: Brees, Shady McCoy, OBJ, Dak, Brady, Rodgers, & More

Embed from Getty Images 1. Dak Prescott is going to make it really difficult for Jerry Jones to bench him. Rookie sensation Dak Prescott finally threw his first interception Sunday, but he still turned in another strong outing in a 30-16 win over the Green Bay Packers. He completed 67 percent of his passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns, posting a 117.4 passer rating while leading Dallas to their…

Sam Bradford for NFL MVP? Really?

Embed from Getty Images As a football junkie, I read dozens of articles per week on anything from fantasy football projections to Sunday recaps to power rankings of the best head coaches in the game. Peter King’s MMQB column has long been one of my absolute favorites, even if I don’t always agree with what he writes. His recent article on Why Sam Bradford is MVP intrigued yet baffled me….

Eagles GM Howie Roseman Early Favorite for Executive of the Year

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?

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

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…

50 Bold Predictions for 2016 NFL Season

Embed from Getty Images   No one could have predicted what the 2015 NFL season had in store for us. Apparently you can win a Super Bowl without a great quarterback – just ask the Denver Broncos, whose historic defense was enough to overcome Peyton Manning’s late-career struggles, to put ‘struggles’ mildly. Cam Newton took that next step and became Supercam, even though he lost Kelvin Benjamin to a preseason…

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

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…
