Found November 14, 2012 on Eagles Eye:
Nick Fierro of the Allentown Morning Call is fed up with the missed tackles by the Eagles this season. He has written what may be his greatest (or at least most passionate) column ever on the tackling woes of the 2012 Eagles...                               Cowboys' running back Felix Jones is brought down by safety Kurt Coleman after several open-field misses by Eagles teammates... On the Cowboys' first touchdown this past Sunday, a swing pass to running back Felix Jones that went for 11 yards, safety Nate Allen, who was in charge of picking up Jones coming out of the backfield, appeared to be too deep at the snap and then moved laterally before moving toward the line of scrimmage and ended up whiffing from the outside, the first of three missed tackles that allowed Jones to make it to the end zone.

Eagles could end up cutting Nnamdi Asomugha

Will Playing Nick Foles Behind Eagles’ Horrible OL Jeopardize His Development?

Photo: Getty Images Since Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Nick Foles is slated to make his first career start this Sunday, and perhaps play the remainder of the 2012 season, I’ve had a few people bring up the David Carr debate as a reason not to let him play yet.

Philadelphia Eagles: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#21)

Last week: 18 (-3) Record: 3-6 It was a very smart of Andy Reid to “rest” Michael Vick the rest of the way. He’s not making the playoffs, but he can still save his job if Nick Foles goes say 4-3. He can blame their slow start on Vick and his history developing quarterbacks will probably convince management to let Reid stick around and develop the promising young quarterback...
