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 […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Giants

Eagles Survive Pitiful Defensive Effort, Clinch First-Round Bye
The Giants were in upset-mode today, and the Eagles came very close to dropping their third game of the season.
Jim Schwartz’s defensive unit was miserable today. The New York Giants came into this game one of the worst offenses in football. Depleted by injury, and plagued by mistakes, […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Rams

Wentz Injury Puts Dark Cloud Over Major Victory
The Philadelphia Eagles came away with a very important victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday afternoon, moving to 11-2, clinching the NFC East, and reclaiming the top seed in the NFC Conference.
However, the win came at a high cost.
Carson Wentz injured his knee during the second […]

Late Thoughts From Eagles-Seahawks

Eagles Were Schooled By Veteran Seahawks
Experience counts for quite a bit in the NFL.
Last Sunday night, the veteran, battle-tested team took the up-and-coming Eagles to task, and out played them in a disappointing 24-10 showing.
This was a loss where everyone really had a hand in it.
Doug Pederson didn’t manage the game very well. He really […]
