Blount Signs With Lions, As Eagles Release Curry

Yesterday the Eagles lost two starters from their Super Bowl Championship squad.  They released veteran defensive end Vinny Curry after trying to restructure and reduce his deal.  The Birds biggest and most physical running back from a year ago, LeGarrette Blount, was in Detroit on Friday and he signed a deal with the Lions.
According to […]

Eagles Sign Bradham, Ngata and Nelson

Yesterday Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham signed a five-year $40 million dollar deal with the Birds.  I think this was a great move by the Birds because I thought Bradham was surely headed elsewhere.  He said two other teams had shown a serious desire to acquire his services.   and he emphasized his trust in team […]

Phillies Sign Cubs Ace Jake Arrieta To A Three-Year Deal

It’s amazing how the sports atmosphere in Philadelphia has changed so much since the Eagles won the Super Bowl.  The players for the Sixers, Flyers and Phillies have been inspired to step up and take the challenge.  Both the Sixers and Flyers went on winning streaks.  In addition, the front offices of those teams are […]

If LeBron Came Here To Play, He Could Play Until 2030

I know many of you probably refuse to take the possibility of LeBron James coming here seriously, but I think there’s a good chance he could come to Philadelphia to play with the 76ers.  Ben Simmons is like a little brother to LeBron.  He mentors Simmons and owns the company that represents the young phenom. […]

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 […]

Fletcher Cox & The Eagles “D-Line Must Dominate

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

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 […]
