Is it too soon to think Super Bowl for the Eagles?

Las Vegas has Seattle, Green Bay, New Orleans and San Francisco ranked ahead of us as favorites to [...]
New York Giants
The sun is setting on the Tom Coughlin era in New York.
The Giants really fell off last season, struggling through an ugly 7-9 campaign plagued by injuries and turnovers.
With a terrible offensive line and no running game to speak of, the weight of the team fell on Eli Manning’s shoulders, and the veteran [...]

Mike Glennon performed fairly well as a rookie thrown into a tough situation last year, but he’ll begin the year on the bench in favor of [...]

No surprises here. G.J. Kinne most likely goes to the practice squad for another year.
Running Backs (4)
LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Matthew Tucker, Henry Josey
I have always been a fan of Chris Polk, but I just don’t see how he can make this team after sitting out the entire preseason. [...]
Has Cody Parkey Won The Kicking Job?
Kicker Cody Parkey got an opportunity to showcase himself tonight in a bid to possibly take the job away from Alex Henery, and the rookie did not squander his chance.
Parkey stole the show in tonight’s contest, going 3/3 including two 50+ yarders.
If this wasn’t enough of a performance to [...]
The clash of a former Eagles’ starting quarterback and Matt Barkley will go down Thursday night. Not a terrible plot line as typically the fourth game of the preseason is a showcase for roster cut hopefuls and practice squad considerations.
As for the Eagles, there is a glaring hole on this roster, and I’m interested to [...]
It was now or never for Sam Bradford. Now it looks much more likely to be never.
St.Louis has waited patiently for the former number-one overall pick to establish himself as a quality starter in this league, and its time that they find out one way or another if they can count on him. Bradford [...]
