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 […]

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 […]

Starting Defensive Jobs To Be Settled On Thursday

There are two starting jobs on the defensive side of the ball which Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz hopes will be decided on Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.  He wants to be able to come out of the game with a clear picture of who will be the team’s defensive starters.
First of all, you […]

Eagles Legends At Team’s Practice

Myself and thirty other Eagles Legends (former Eagles players) were invited to the team’s practice yesterday by Doug Pederson and we had a great time checking the Birds out during a workout in preparation for their Thursday night battle against the Cleveland Browns.  Most of the guys were reliving the times when they were out […]

Eagles Youngsters Nate Sudfeld and Shelton Gibson Are Shining

The Eagles have to be excited about the play of third string quarterback Nate Sudfeld.  He’s got an NFL arm and he’s been showcasing it to the rest of the NFL.  Eagles fans have been wondering why the Birds would signed free agent quarterback Christian Hackenberg. Now you know the reason they signed him.  I […]

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, […]
