Fletcher Cox & The Eagles “D-Line Must Dominate

Tweet
I’m convinced that the key to the Birds defensive success against the Pats starts in the middle of their defensive line with Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and his partner Tim Jernigan.   The Eagles desperately need Cox to take over this game in much the same way he has done so far in […]

Eagles Secondary & LB’s Must Anticipate Patriots Passing System

Tweet
The Eagles defense will have their work cut out for them on Sunday at Super Bowl LII as they attempt to outplay the great Tom Brady, and his New England Patriots.
First of all, it’s imperative that this defense be ready to focus their efforts and compete with every ounce of energy they have until the […]

Eagles Defense Will Need To Outplay Vikings D

Tweet
Eagles Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox didn’t mince words yesterday when he said, “Whichever defense plays the best is going to win.  We must play better than their defense.”  It was simple and it was correct.  Both the Eagles and Vikings defense are better than the Eagles and Vikings offenses. I expect a low […]

NIck Foles Is More Confident And So Is The Team

Tweet
I like the Eagles chances in this weekend’s NFC Championship game. Quarterback Nick Foles seems to have gained a great deal of confidence from his success against the Falcons.  Foles went into the Atlanta game with a “cloud of doubt” over his head.  He was tentative in the pocket and played poorly in the last […]

Eagles Found A Way To Win, But…….

Tweet
You’ve got to give the Eagles defense most of the credit for the win, especially cornerback Ronald Darby for the interception and kicker Jake Elliot for the great kick.  The Birds pulled out a 13-10 win over the Oakland Raiders on Monday night in front of the nation, but it wasn’t an impressive performance by […]

Pederson Wants His Eagles Players To “Just Do Their Job”

Tweet
Doug Pederson just finished his Friday morning news conference and he emphasized that he doesn’t need his players to try to do more than their job.  He doesn’t want offensive players trying to do more than their assignment because Nick Foles is the team’s starting quarterback and not Carson Wentz.
This starts with Foles.  He doesn’t […]

Video: Three Costly Plays Vs. Seahawks, That Must Be Corrected

Tweet
I’m highlighting three plays which occurred in the Seattle game that must avoided in the upcoming contest against the Rams.
The first play which I single out is a play involving a LeGarrette Blount 12-yard run in the red zone to the Seahawks four-yard line.  The run would have set up a probable Eagles touchdown, but […]

Video: Eagles Must Have Two Hands On The Football

Tweet
The Eagles failed to learn their lessons from the numerous fumbles they had in their easy win over the Chicago Bears.  Chicago had no chance in the game, but they were able to force the Eagles to fumble three times in the game and they recovered two of them.
Veteran running back LeGarrette Blount took off […]

Video: Loss Could Serve As Wake Up Call For Eagles

Tweet
I know the Eagles loss to the Seahawks was very painful because it ended at nine game winning streak by the Birds, but I think it could wind up helping the Philadelphia team in the long run.  The Eagles will need to take a sober look at their performance against the Seahawks and that starts […]

Video: Eagles Will Need To Play Better

Tweet
Everyone was celebrating after the Eagles 31-3 domination of the Chicago Bears.  It wasn’t much of a contest as the Eagles held Chicago’s explosive running game to six yards.  Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen had no where to go because the Birds defensive line plays the game in the opposing team’s backfield.  They don’t give […]
