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 […]

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 […]

Eagles Defense Will Need To Outplay Vikings D

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 […]

Eagles Found A Way To Win, But…….

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 […]

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

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

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

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

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 […]

Video: Pederson, Wentz and Jeffery Talk About First TD Pass

One of the amazing things about the Eagles win over the Denver Broncos was the way they did it.  On their first score, they attacked one of the best cornerbacks in the National Football League, Aquib Talib.  It was a RPO, which is short for Run/Pass Option.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz put the ball into the […]
