Five Thoughts From Eagles-Steelers

1. Kafka Down, Foles and Edwards Up
In the coming weeks, Andy Reid will need to make a decision about who his primary backup quarterback will be.
Mike Kafka, the early favorite for the job was brutal in his first action of the preseason. The third-year quarterback completed five of nine passes for 31 yards, and made […]

Nick Foles And Trent Edwards Putting Pressure On Kafka

Things got a lot more interesting at the quarterback position last night after the Birds came back to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers behind the quality play of third-string rookie quarterback Nick Foles and fourth-string veteran quarterback Trent Edwards.
“I keep it wide open at all positions,” head coach Andy Reid said after the game. “Whoever is […]

It’s Vick In 1st, Kafka in 2nd, Foles In 3rd and Edwards In 4th

Tonight the Birds will take a look at all four of their quarterbacks in this preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Michael Vick will play the first quarter with the starters.  Mike Kafka will take the second quarter with the second team.  Nick Foles will see action in the third quarter with the third string, […]

A Close Look At Eagles Offensive Depth Chart

The Eagles have been in camp a couple of weeks and they’ll get the preseason started tomorrow night.  They released their first depth chart a couple of days ago.  They take some time to do it, so where everybody is located tells you something about the way the coaching staff feels about certain players.
The Eagles […]

Will Bryce Brown Rebound From Tough Day?

I wasn’t impressed with the performance of Eagles rookie running back Bryce Brown yesterday after he was pounded by the defense.  The defense was dominating the action and he didn’t seem to respond the way you would want him to do.  He wasn’t used to this type of intensity. The defensive linemen were coming off […]

Eagles Sign Free Agent Wide Receiver, Andrew Brewer

The dislocating ankle injury to Ron Johnson will end his chances of making the Eagles team and open up an opportunity for another young wide receiver.
It seems the Birds are intent on giving big wide receivers a chance to try out with the Eagles.  The boys in the Midnight Green signed former Northwestern University and […]

Eagles Practice Rewind: More Hitting And Fighting, And Another Injury

Rookie wide receiver Ron Johnson dislocated his ankle at practice.  It wasn’t a pretty picture for a youngster who had been showing a lot of promise at camp.  There was no surety that he was going to make the team, but he had been having a good camp.
So far during this training camp, every time […]

Eagles Training Camp Battles: Backup Quarterback

Most of the starters who will open the 2012 season for the Philadelphia Eagles are all set, barring injury.  However, there are as many as three starting positions that are open for competition, along with several key backup and role player positions that need to be sorted out.
The winners of these training camp battles will surely impact the outcome of the 2012 […]

Questions To Be Answered About The Eagles Offense In Training Camp

Who is going to back up Michael Vick?  Mike Kafka has the lead right now because he knows the offense very well, but will the experience of Trent Edwards win out, or will rookie Nick Foles win the job with his stronger arm.
This could ultimately have play a large role in the season because of […]

Eagles Will Lose Deep Passing Game If Michael Vick Gets Hurt

I give the Eagles credit for trying to fill every hole on their football team, in order that they’re ready to make a serious run for the playoffs and the big prize in February of 2013.
The Birds have been very busy this off season.  They extended the contracts of running back LeSean McCoy, wide receiver […]
