Thoughts From Eagles-Buccaneers

Injuries Continue To Hit Eagles Hard, Defensive Breakdowns Lead To First Loss
The injury bug showed no mercy to the Birds today. Already without Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffrey, Darren Sproles was ruled out before the game after suffering a hamstring injury during the week.
During the game, the team lost Jason Peters, Jay Ajayi, and Mike […]

Nick Foles Will Start Again On Sunday

I hope you know by now that Nick Foles will be the Eagles starting quarterback on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Eagles head coach Doug Pederson made that announcement this morning. So that means we’re going to need to wait another week until Carson Wentz returns to action.
Pederson said Wentz is coming along very […]

Eagles Need To Get Foles and Ajayi Going Early

The Eagles pass offense is going to need to step it up in the near future. On Monday, I went into the Eagles locker room and listened to veteran wide receiver Mike Wallace say he’s not worried about the team’s inability to throw the football down the field.  He says the big plays are coming. […]

Eagles Passing Game Not In Sync, Except Philly Philly

I had expected an ugly game from the Eagles passing game because Birds quarterback Nick Foles hasn’t been able to work very long with the team’s top wide receivers Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace and Alshon Jeffery. Of course we all know that Jeffery hasn’t been able to practice since his off season shoulder surgery, Agholor […]

Eagles Defense Comes Up Big In The Red Zone

The Jim Schwartz-coached Birds defense came up big in the red zone.  The Eagles defensive line led by Chris Long and Fletcher Cox were able to put pressure on Matt Ryan all night long.  Schwartz mixed up the coverages by playing man-to-man at the start of the game in the red zone, then staying in […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Falcons


Deja-Vu! Another 4th and Goal Stop Gives Eagles Opening Night Win
It’s scary just how much the season opener mirrored the NFC Divisional Playoff game last January. A low-scoring, defensive battle that came right down to the wire. Holding a six-point lead with just over two minutes to go, the defense had to overcome one last […]

Eagles Will Feature Their Tight Ends And Running Backs

I expect head coach Doug Pederson, offensive coordinator Mike Groh, and assistant head coach Duce Staley and the rest of the offensive staff to feature the running backs and tight ends in the passing game on Thursday night. Foles hasn’t had the chance to throw the ball a lot to the wide receivers because of […]

Come On, Everybody Knew It Was Going To Be Foles

I’m glad Eagles head coach Doug Pederson came out yesterday and put all the “who is starting at quarterback nonsense to bed”.  I think anybody who has any sense knew that Nick Foles was going to be starting for the Birds at quarterback, regardless of what was said or reported.  Pederson has said numerous times […]

Report: Nick Foles Will Start Week 1

The speculation about whether the regular season MVP or Super Bowl MVP will be under center for the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles on Opening Night may be over.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Nick Foles will be the starting quarterback against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Eagles have not made any official announcement […]

Late Thoughts From Eagles-Jets & 53-Man Roster Projection

August Football Mercifully Ends
You knew this was going to be a rough game to watch when word came down that Nate Sudfeld would not be playing in tonight’s game, and instead the Eagles would treat fans to four quarters of Joe Callahan and Christian Hackenberg at the quarterback position.
Sudfeld’s absence tonight was interesting to me. […]
