Found May 25, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Though the Eagles used a 3rd round pick on Nick Foles, the organization sees him as more of a developmental quarterback of the future than someone they want to play this year. Given that, it’ll be a competition between two veterans, Trent Edwards and Mike Kafka, to be the #2 quarterback behind Michael Vick. Foles will be the #3 quarterback for this season. Given that Edwards didn’t attempt a pass last season, Kafka has the inside track at the #2 job. He was their #3 quarterback last year and has 2 years of experience in the system after going in the 4th round in the 2010 NFL Draft. Kafka has been impressing in Eagles OTAs so far, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane. Kafka spent a lot of time this offseason in the weight room working on his arm strength, one of his biggest weaknesses. It’s showing on the field as he reportedly is making throws he once couldn’t. Kafka has 16 career attempts, with 11 completions for 107 yards, no touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. It sou...

Demetress Bell confident, getting comfortable with new Eagles teammates

The offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles in March was quiet, calm, and everything was going well. Until news that Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters had ruptured his Achilles, that is. Philadelphia’s offensive line was set to finally have continuity in 2012, which would have served to strengthen the foundation laid in 2011 . Peters and the rest of the o-line were no small part of what led...

2012 Eagles Cheerleader Bikini Shoot In Bahamas

How we let this one slip by is mind boggling. Of course the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders were in the Bahamas earlier this month to shoot the team’s bikini calendar. Guess we were busy staring at Cowboys cheerleader asses. Anyway, this one looks like your normal shoot. Sand, water, chicks with giant boobs, surf, sun, blah, blah, blah. Sorry, ladies, it’s going to take a better...

How will Eagles’ linebackers line up this season?

There might not have been a more publicly shamed group than the Eagles’ linebackers last year. Poor linebacker play became the poster child for the failure of the so called “Dream Team” last year as the Eagles, widely projected to win 12-13 games, won 8 and missed the playoffs. The Eagles, who have always notoriously devalued the linebacker position, have spent a lot of focus...

Eagles' Hanson: Every man for himself in CB competition

PHILADELPHIA -- With his 31st birthday fast approaching, Eagles cornerback Joselio Hanson has been promised nothing other than a chance to win the job he has held for the better part of the last six years. Signed out of NFL Europe in 2006, the 5-9, 185-pound Hanson has been one of the league's better nickel corners the last six years. But he heads into the spring OTAs needing...

The Eagles are primed for a bounce back year but title run is on Vick’s shoulders

Want one team that missed the playoffs last year but is bound to crack the postseason in 2012? Look no further than the Philadelphia Eagles. After opening their checkbook last season for free agents Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin, Cullen Jenkins and Ronnie Brown, a lot of pundits just assumed that the Eagles would win the NFC East. But the team lost four of its first five games and...

Balancing optimism with the mundane in Eagles' voluntary OTA's...

Our own commentator emeritus GK Brizer says it best--- what you can conclude about a team's prospects for a new season based on what happens in voluntary OTA's amounts to just about nothing...After all, it's a controlled environment with no real oppositional contact and a lot of feel-good-about-ourselves emotion in play.Still, you can get a general feel for the willingness...
