In Gus We Trust

Eagles fans across the country got great news when the Eagles account confirmed Monday night that they would be interviewing Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley for a second time today. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports was the first to report the news.
The time of the interview isn’t known, but the interview will take place in […]

Linebacker Player Reviews: Week 5

On paper, it didn’t look like a very good day for the Eagles linebackers.  The Eagles allowed 136 yards on the ground, but that stat is misleading and I’ll explain why below.
DeMeco Ryans: Ryans had good control of the defense.  He played 96% of the teams snaps on defense.  He  finished with six solo tackles […]

Reid’s Comments Hint At Quarterback Controversy For The Birds

Yesterday when Andy Reid was asked about the play of his quarterback in his postgame press conference, Reid said that he never thought of replacing Michael Vick with backup Nick Foles.  However, Reid sang a different tune at his press conference today. When asked about the overall play from the QB position, Reid stated that […]

For The Second Straight Week, Vick Shows Heart

Michael Vick had his struggles against the Ravens, and turned the ball over three times.  However, unlike last week, nothing could keep Vick or the offense down.  Not turnovers, not injuries to starting offensive linemen Jason Kelce and King Dunlap, and surely not the Ravens defense.  The Eagles were forced to fight back the whole […]

Jaiquawn Jarrett Fails To Impress

Jaiquawn Jarrett had a huge opportunity. Nate Allen, the starter at strong safety for the Eagles defense was inactive. Jarrett had played a physical breed of football thus far in training camp, so Andy Reid tabbed him to be the starter instead of O.J. Atogwe. With his choice, Andy Reid put a lot of faith in Jarrett. Unfortunately, Jarrett looked […]

Free Agency Underway For Flyers

The NHL Free Agency Period is underway.  According to, the Flyers have $11,381,627 in cap space.  This number will rise when, as expected, the Flyers put Chris Pronger on long-term IR to start the season.  The Pronger move would give the club an extra $4,921,429 to spend on team salaries.  Further, teams are allowed […]

Atogwe Provides Upside And Experience

Going into the off-season, most Eagles fans and pundits alike expected the tea, to go out and sign a veteran safety to compete with Nate Allen, Kurt Coleman, and Jaiquawn Jarrett. However, they didn’t address the position until last week when they signed former Redskin and Ram O.J. Atogwe on Wednesday.
In my view, this is […]

Eagles Should Target Curtis Lofton Or Stephen Tulloch In Free Agency

I’m very excited for the start of the NFL Free Agency period, which is one of my favorite times of the year. Today at 4pm EST is the real start of the NFL off-season. The flurry of players changing teams is exciting. I constantly find myself refreshing twitter to see the latest breaking news.
We all […]

Thoughts On The Juan Castillo Decision and Hiring Of Todd Bowles

On Monday, reports stated that the Eagles will retain Juan Castillo as defensive coordinator, and hire former Dolphins interim coach Todd Bowles as Secondary coach.
This may not be the answer that some Eagles fans were looking for, but keeping Castillo maintains continuity, which I believe is very important. Last year, as we all know, the […]

A Veteran MLB, Like Stephen Tulloch Is A Must-Need For The Eagles “D”

It’s pretty obvious, the Eagles have  huge holes to fill in their linebacker position.  They first threw rookie Casey Matthews into the fire at MLB coming out of training camp. This was a disastrous mistake that led to teams running all over the Birds in the first part of the season.
I don’t know how Andy […]
