Thoughts On Matt Jones Signing


On Wednesday morning, the Philadelphia Eagles made another move to add to their running back situation, signing former Washington Redskins’ third-round pick Matt Jones.
The Eagles worked out Jones and former Baltimore Raven Terrance West, but ended up coming to terms with Jones. Of the two, Jones probably has the bigger upside, but West was more […]

Thoughts On The Eagles’ 2018 Draft

On Trading Out Of The First Round
The Eagles’ biggest decision of the weekend came on Thursday night, when they elected to trade the 32nd overall pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for their second-rounder this year, the ability move up seven spots in the fourth round, and their second-round pick next year.
I was alright […]

Thoughts On The Eagles’ 2018 Schedule

Week 1 vs Atlanta
I’m shocked that the season opener didn’t turn out to be against the Minnesota Vikings or Dallas Cowboys. On paper, I’d think those would make for much more compelling season-opening matchups. But instead the Eagles will take on Falcons in a rematch of the Divisional Round playoff game. Matt Ryan and the […]

Thoughts On Eagles’ Key Roster Decisions: Who Stays, Who Goes?

Nick Foles
This is really the million dollar question.
The only thing I’m 100% certain of is that Nick Foles has earned another opportunity to be the starting quarterback for a team in this league.
There should be a strong market for Foles. Teams are always desperate for quarterbacks, and when looking at Foles’ entire body of work […]

Some Post-Super Bowl Thoughts

On Losing Frank Reich, John DeFillipo
A successful NFL team is going to have their coaching staffs poached by the rest of the league.
Unfortunately for the Eagles, they’ve already lost two key assistants from Doug Pederson’s staff.
Frank Reich accepted the head coaching job in Indianapolis, and quarterbacks coach John DeFillipo has moved on to the offensive […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Patriots

Victory! A Championship Worth Waiting For
You certainly couldn’t ask for a Super Bowl Championship in a grander fashion than what the Eagles delivered on Sunday night.
A shootout with five-time Super Bowl Champ Tom Brady? A game that went back and worth and went right down to the wire? A fourth and goal touchdown pass from […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Vikings

Perfect Team Effort Sends Eagles To The Super Bowl
The home dogs were out to feast on Sunday night.
The Philadelphia Eagles turned in an absolutely dominating effort, embarrassing Case Keenum and the Minnesota Vikings 38-7.
Doug Pederson’s coaching job was nothing short of incredible. He devised a perfect gameplan for Nick Foles, who carved up the top-rated […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Falcons

Eagles Overcome Adversity, Win Playoff War Against Atlanta
After enduring weeks of doubt and all kind of doom and gloom talk, the Philadelphia Eagles came out and proved the naysayers wrong with a grueling 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
It wasn’t an easy win. The Eagles made a flurry of gut-wrenching mistakes in the first half […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Cowboys

Poor Showing For Foles In Limited Action
Nick Foles only played one quarter of football, and he didn’t do anything to give the Eagle faithful much confidence going into the playoffs.
Foles completed just four of 11 passes for 39 yards with an interception in his final tune-up for the playoffs.
The Eagles’ starters did move the ball […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Raiders

Foles’ Ineffectiveness Cause For Concern?
If you watched Nick Foles quarterback the Philadelphia Eagles tonight, you’d never believe that this was a guy that once threw for seven touchdowns against the Oakland Raiders.
Foles looked lost tonight. He connected on just 19 of 38 pass attempts for 163 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
Foles was never […]
