To borrow a line from Mark Twain reports of Brent Celek's football death have been greatly exaggerated.
A subpar season and the offseason arrival of two heralded tight ends - free agent James Casey and second-round pick Zach Ertz - had a lot of people in these parts ready to put the 6-year veteran out to pasture.
But when the Eagles open the season in less than 2 weeks against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field Celek 28 once again will be their starting tight end.
"I love this offense" he said. "Just from a communications standpoint. It's amazing how fast you can execute it."
The Eagles have run 225 offensive plays in their first three preseason games. That's an average of 75 per game which is more than any other team in the league.
For Celek and the rest of the Eagles' receiving corps more plays means more opportunities for catches and big plays.
He has seven receptions in the preseason which is the most he's had since his rook...

Chip Kelly and the new-look Philadelphia Eagles may not be considered to be in the playoff conversation heading into the start of the highly-anticipated 2013 NFL regular season, but with unrest in the NFC East and four different division champions over the last four seasons, anything can happen. At least one thing’s certain about this team though—it will be fascinating to...
Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly have a three down running back in LeSean McCoy, so when he says he’s not concerned about backup RB Bryce Brown’s fumbling issues, it’s not his primary worry. However, if McCoy were to get injured, Kelly’s concern might get heightened quite a bit.
This is a pretty entertaining video of security guards at Lincoln Financial Field practicing how to take a streaker down. [Terez Owens] Need NFL Tickets? Loading... ZergNet The post Eagles security guards practice tackling streakers (Video) appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
After Andy Reid was fired by the Eagles, the idea of a head coach holding power of personnel decisions was supposed to have been abolished.
Jeffrey Lurie named Howie Roseman GM, and hired offensive genius, and successful college coach Chip Kelly as Reid’s successor.
It was assumed that Kelly would on handle the X’s and O’s, but according to Pro Football Talk, Kelly also has...
I knew the Buffalo Bills were looking longingly in Nick Foles' direction this past week... but what I didn't know is that other teams are shopping for Shaggy, too...
Good for Nick. By most accounts he is gaining respect around the league. I'm cautious with his evaluation because I lived through the Kevin Kolb saga in Philly.
It also begs the question--...
The Philadelphia Eagles security guards practice taking down streakers. I know this happens from time to time but actually taking time out of your day to practice it? Thats a bit far.
I do have a solution for this problem though: just one time, release an angry dog after the person that streaks. That will make people think twice about it right?

I’m not going to do a full game recap since it took so long for the game to broadcast – and me to have time to watch it – here in DC. For a detailed review, check out Iggles Blitz. For a more brief review, check out Bleeding Green Nation.

Fly, Philadelphia Eagles, Fly After a disappointing 4-12 campaign, longtime head coach Andy Reid was shown the door. In walked Chip Kelly, lately of Oregon, with his up-tempo offense. In concert with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who comes to Philadelphia from the Cleveland Browns, Kelly looks to resurrect an offense that scored only 17.5 points per game […]The post Know...
If you're still on the bubble you might want to put out some great footage on tape Thursday night against the Jets...
This can only happen for you if you are still in the mix for the Final 53. Chances are, they've already decided you are gone. They might throw you some reps so you and your agent can sell them on tape to your last-minute backup team...
With the regular season only a week away, the Eagles find themselves in their final preseason game of 2013 as they travel to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Jets. At this point, it may sound cliche to say this as I have said this in each preseason game I have previewed, but this is yet ANOTHER important game for the Eagles. However, each game has been important for different...
