Howie Roseman Was Right To Sign Vinny Curry

Tweet
I’m totally onboard with what Eagles GM Howie Roseman had to say to Philly.com’s Jeff McLane, when talking about why the Birds signed defensive end Vinny Curry to a 5-year contract extension for $47.25 million with $23 million guaranteed.
I think he will be a double-digit sack guy, when given the chance to play full time […]

Fletcher Cox Puts On A J.J. Watt-Like Performance

Tweet
The one Eagles that deserves the most credit for their 23-20 win over the Buffalo Bills was defensive end/tackle Fletcher Cox.  The Birds best defensive lineman recorded seven solo tackles, two tackles for losses and a quarterback in the victory.  In addition he forced the Bills to hold him four or five times, which forced […]

Vinny Curry Will Be Hard For Birds To Resign

Tweet
ESPN’s Adam Scheffer reported on Sunday that Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry’s name has been coming up in trade talks.  This doesn’t mean Curry’s name is being put out there by the Birds, it means his name has been coming up because he’s talented pass rusher, who isn’t starting.   Curry has starter talent and […]

Barwin, Graham And Cox Must Put Pressure On Matt Ryan

Tweet
The only way the Eagles lose this game is if Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has time to throw the football to Julio Jones and Roddy White, to the point where he picks apart the Eagles secondary.  This is a possibility because the Birds secondary is still in the process of finding itself.
There’s no way in […]

Eagles Defensive Line Stuffed The Colts Run Game

Tweet
The Eagles defensive line of Fletcher Cox, Cedrick Thornton and Bennie Logan showed why they’re one of the best groups in the league, when it comes to stopping the run. They were dominating the Colts offensive line and they totally shut down the Indianapolis running game.
Remember that the Colts are considered a Super Bowl favorite […]

The Eagles Should Feature Fletcher Cox In Their Defense

Tweet
Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox could very well be the best defensive player on the Birds roster or maybe the best player on the team.  He’s come into his own as one of the more dominating defensive players in the game, but nobody outside of Philadelphia has heard of him.  The Birds play a 3/4 […]

Vinny Curry Needs To Be On the Field More Often

Tweet
Pass defense is the most important part of defensive football in the NFL.  Stopping the run is great but if you can’t stop the pass you get beat.  It was bombs away in the Eagles secondary last year and it was the main reason they were sitting at him looking at the playoffs. It looks like […]

Eagles D-Line Is Solid and Led By Fletcher Cox

Tweet
The Eagles have one of the best three-four defensive lines in the National Football League.  They don’t have big sack numbers, but they do a great job of playing the run and keeping offensive linemen off the linebackers.  In the three-four scheme, the defensive line is supposed to sacrifice and the linebackers are supposed to […]

Eagles Draft Boston College Defensive End , Brian Mihalik

Tweet
The Eagles concluded their 2015 NFL Draft by selecting Boston College defensive end Brian Mihalik in the seventh round.  Mihalik is a 6’9″ project, who played in a 4-3 defense in college and the Eagles think he will have success as a two-gap defensive end in their 3-4.
The key to being a good two-gap defensive […]

Eagles Exercise Fifth-Year Option On Fletcher Cox

Tweet
The Eagles decided to exercise their fifth year option on defensive end Fletcher Cox, who is only 24 years old.  This selection of the fifth option by the Eagles protects Cox in case of injury and puts the Birds on record for paying the defensive end at least $7,799,000 in 2016 if the youngster were […]
