The Rain Forces The Eagles To Practice Inside

The rain forced the Eagles inside under the bubble yesterday.  Starting slot receiver Nelson Agholor didn’t practice yesterday.  Running backs Corey Clement and Donnell Pumphrey didn’t practice yesterday.   Second year receiver Mack Hollins and his fellow wide out Markus Wheaton also didn’t practice yesterday.  I know Pumphrey missed time because of a hamstring issue, […]

Dallas Goedert Shows Us He’s Also A Good Blocker

Looking back at the Eagles first preseason game, you can’t help but be enthused by the play of rookie tight end Dallas Goedert.  From the time he stepped on the field this offseason, this young man has practiced and played like he’s been an Eagle for a couple of years.  He added to that with […]

Wentz Waits, Foles Sits & Pederson Prepares Team For 1st Game

Eagles Leaders Hungry For Repeat

I want you to look up a number of Eagles players when you go to the Birds Training Camp in the next few weeks. This group of Eagles team leaders were injured a year ago in the amazing Super Bowl run, but are returning to action in 2018. These guys are the reason that I […]

Expect The Eagles Tight Ends To Take On Bigger Role

After watching the Eagles practice this off season the significance of the Birds tight end position is becoming very obvious.  Last year, Birds tight end Zach Ertz was their go to guy much of the time on third down and in the red zone.   The former Stanford tight end caught 74 passes during the […]

Eagles Had Everybody On Hand For Mandatory Workout

The Eagles had everybody present for yesterday’s mandatory workout at the Novacare Complex.  There were quite a few players who were there physically, but not practicing.
Head coach Doug Pederson made it clear that Nick Foles is the team’s starting quarterback right now.  He still thinks this is Carson Wentz team, but Foles would be the […]

Pederson Sets Exact Time For The Eagles To Turn The Page

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he wants to turn the page to the 2018 season after the Birds ring ceremony on June 15th.  He talked about all of the celebrating that has continued after the Birds stunned the football world and upset the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
I understand what Pederson is […]

Sixers Finally Part Ways With Bryan Colangelo & HIs Wife

It took longer than everyone expected but finally, the Sixers and General Manager Bryan Colangelo have parted ways.  Colangelo’s wife Barbara Bottini took responsibility for the Twitter accounts that were critical of numerous 76ers players and which distributed sensitive information about the organization.
There’s no way the Sixers could have or should have kept Colangelo on […]

I Agree With The NFL National Anthem Policy

The NFL has come out with a policy, which requires NFL players to stand for the National Anthem.  I agree with the policy because there are a lot of NFL fans who are totally turned off by the players kneeling.  Many of the people I know who have been life long NFL fans and especially […]
