Despite all the predictable negativity raining down on the Eagles (3-3) right now from not only the talking heads but Philly's own fan base, it's somewhat encouraging to hear Atlanta's much-respected defensive coordinator Mike Nolan give us a dose of respect.
Atlanta defensive coordinator Mike Nolan referred to the Philadelphia Eagles' offense as "a sleeping giant" in his weekly press conference.
The Philadelphia Eagles have a ton of talent on the offensive side of the ball, but so far this season, they haven't been able to put it all together. The Eagles rank 30th in the NFL in scoring at just 17.2 points per game. But that doesn't mean Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan isn't worried about them as he prepares for the teams' matchup this weekend.
Nolan spoke to the media in advance of Sunday's game, and he acknowledged that despite their struggles, Philadelphia's offense is dangerous (via The Atlanta Journ...

Without a doubt the Philadelphia Eagles are the most desperate 3-3 team the NFL has seen in recent memory. From QB turnovers to coaching turmoil, this Eagles team seems to be one bad outing away from a serious shakeup that could include the firing of head coach Andy Reid and or benching of quarterback Michael Vick. It’s a volatile situation that has clearly fallen on the...
Cornback Asante Samuel makes his return to Philadelphia this weekend, and he thinks that, for all he's done for fans during the four years he was an Eagle, he deserves a warm welcome.
What does he think he is, some sort of Super Bowl Hero? He very well could've been just that, albeit for another team, the New England Patriots.
Samuel dropped a game clinching interception...

Brandon Graham better buck up or shut up.
He threw former Eagles coordinator Juan Castillo under the bus, which I commend him for, but he seems more like Freddy Mitchell than Terrell Owens when he said what he said.
“I think we started running the same stuff over and over and not switching it up as much,” Graham told CSNPhilly.com. “A lot of time we ran the same coverage, stuff...
This week is going to be, to put it mildly, interesting.
The Eagles are coming off a bye week in which Andy Reid replaced his DC and there are widespread rumors of problems in the entire front office.
The Falcons, also coming off a bye, are the only remaining undefeated team.
Andy Reid has never lost the game the week after the bye, including the infamously disastrous 2005 season...

Last week: 14 (+3) Record: 3-3 On bye.
Every time we get to the point in the season where the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles have to face each other I face a week of anxiety! I’ve mentioned this many times before — I’m a fan of both teams. And the past two weeks have been very nauseating since both teams had a bye the same week AND they’re playing each other right after it.
As much as people criticize...
