Thoughts From Eagles-Browns

Another Reminder That The Preseason Means Nothing
The Philadelphia Eagles lost another meaningless football game on Thursday night to the Cleveland Browns 5-0. There were sloppy plays, mistakes, turnovers, even a missed field goal.
Are people going to get all worked up over what happened tonight? Absolutely. Should they? Absolutely not.
Let’s take a look back at just […]

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 QB’s & WR’s Haven’t Worked Together Much


The Eagles have two games remaining in the preseason, but they really have only one game left to prepare their first string players for the upcoming season.  I’m concerned about the fact that the Eagles quarterbacks especially, Carson Wentz and Nick Foles, haven’t had a lot of work with their top receivers.
Alshon Jeffery, who is […]

Carson Wentz Is Cleared for 11-on-11 Action

Yesterday, ESPN NFL reporter Chris Mortensen let the NFL fans know that Eagles franchise quarterback Carson Wentz has been okayed to do 11-on-11 drills at practice on Sunday afternoon.  This is one of the steps needed to give Wentz one of the two okays necessary in order for him to return to action.  Although he […]

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 […]

It Will Be Wait And See On Foles Injury

I’m sure you know by now that Nick Foles got injured last night in the Eagles 37-20 loss to the Patriots.  He not only got hurt, he also didn’t play well. Foles was sacked three times in the game and on one of the sacks he was stripped of the ball.  On that strip sack, […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Patriots

Bad Football On Full Display In Foxboro
The Philadelphia Eagles turned in a pretty ugly showing in Thursday’s exhibition match against the Super Bowl runner-up New England Patriots.
Nick Foles and the first-team offense couldn’t move the football, while Tom Brady played almost an entire half and shredded the first-team defense.
Any overreaction to this game is just […]

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, […]

Dallas Goedert Shows Us He’s Also A Good Blocker

Looking back at the Eagles first preseason game, you can’t help but be enthused by the play of rookie tight end Dallas Goedert.  From the time he stepped on the field this offseason, this young man has practiced and played like he’s been an Eagle for a couple of years.  He added to that with […]
