Thoughts From Eagles-Redskins


Mistakes, Sloppy Play Doom Eagles Again
One of the Eagles’ best qualities during their three-game winning streak to start the season was that they appeared to be well-coached and well-prepared.

Lane Johnson Should Drop His Suspension Appeal
The Lane Johnson situation continues to drag on and on, beyond belief.
