But for Kenny Phillips, the news was not so bright today.
Phillips missed practice yet again on Wednesday with a quad injury, which flared up during Tuesday's practice. DC Bill Davis said that Phillips did some work on Tuesday before going into the locker room once his quad started to bother him.

"Nobody wants to get out on the field more than Kenny," said Davis. "Anybody that goes throug...

Back in the early 2000s, a number of Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders joined a lawsuit alleging that they were peeped on in their dressing room by visiting teams. The cheerleaders said that their lack of privacy was common knowledge around the NFL.

You may not like the early decision by Eagles head coach Chip Kelly to declare veteran Mike Vick as the QB#1 for the Eagles in 2013. But I am digging it. Basically, the Chippah just took control of this team and this locker room. He essentially has said, "No more bull-crap... no more politically-correct 'wait until the final PS game' to evaluate all candidates.....
The Eagles have finally named a starting quarterback after weeks of posturing and tests from head coach Chip Kelly.
Chip Kelly announced to the media Tuesday morning Vick will indeed be the opening game starter for the Eagles after outlasting Foles in their training camp battle.
Now the questions turn to what happens to Foles from here. For months there has been speculation about...

The Philadelphia Eagles named Michael Vick the starting quarterback over Nick Foles. Was this even in question, because I don't know anybody that thought Foles would win the job.
The word out of Washington is that quarterback Robert Griffin III continues to look good in practice, strengthening the fact that he will be ready for Week 1 when the Redskins host Philadelphia on Monday...

The Eagles dealt from a position of strength on Friday agreeing to trade running back Felix Jones to the Steelers for pass rushing linebacker Adrian Robinson. The trade is contingent upon both players passing physicals with their new teams.
Jones faced long odds of making an Eagles team that also had LeSean McCoy Bryce Brown and Chris Polk. The former first-round pick signed with...
